Our Thoughts

Wall Street was closed for Memorial Day yesterday but a peek at the futures showed that all 3 major indices are trending positively at the moment. Anyhow, all eyes will be on the US personal consumption expenditure data to be reported this Friday. Over in Hong Kong, the HSI reversed its losses last Friday by adding 218 points as sentiment improved over China’s industrial companies profits in April that jumped 4% from a month earlier suggesting China’s policies are taking effect. At home, the FBM KLCI ended marginally lower after hovering in positive territory for most of the session following some last-minute selling on the Banks. For today, we expect accumulation of stocks to emerge, namely the Banks, as most have reported decent earnings for 1Q24 so far. As such, we believe the index to hover between the 1,620- 1,630 range today.
