Teo Seng Capital, via its unit BH Fresh Food Pte Ltd, is disposing of a leasehold, two-storey JTC detached factory in Singapore for RM29.41m.

Our Thoughts

Wall Street rallied as traders cheered October’s consumer price index (CPI) which came in lower than expected. Core CPI that excludes food and energy prices actually rose the slowest in 2 years suggesting the Feds will end its interest rate hike campaign for good. Therefore, the DJI Average jumped 490 points while the Nasdaq added 327 points as the US 10-year yield eased to 4.453%. Over in Hong Kong, the HSI closed marginally lower as investors were mainly side-lined ahead of US inflation report. The index dipped 29 points to just below the 17,400 mark. On the local front, the FBM KLCI rebounded attributed to bargain hunting activities following last week’s erratic trading pattern. In line with the optimism from the US, we expect the index to maintain its positive momentum thus anticipate the index to trend within the 1,455-1,465 range today. Meanwhile, Plantation stocks could see some buying interests today as crude palm oil (CPO) price improved to above the RM3,900/tonne level due to higher imports from India.
