Our Thoughts

Wall Street closed lower on rate hikes jitters despite Citigroup, Wells Fargo and JP Morgan all reported better than expected results. As such, the DJI Average lost 143 points while the Nasdaq declined by 43 points as the US 10-year yield ended higher at above the 3.51% level. Over in Hong Kong, the HSI added 94 points due to buying support from Chinese mainland funds. Recent reported US CPI and PPI which were flat further fuelled overall confidence on the HKSE. On the home front, continuous accumulation of blue chips helped the FBM KLCI to remain above the 1,435 mark. We reckon buying interests to continue pouring into the blue chips thus expect the index to hover within the 1,435-1,445 range today. Though banking stocks may be the flavour for the day, we believe overall buying will be broad-based.
