I suppose defensive stock is less cyclical (not speculative) and lower beta. Agree, during crash, everything drops. Even utilities stock like TNB, but, when market recover, their share price will come back unlike speculative stocks (without earning support), will remain collapsed.

one have either to be mainly a market trader, investor, timer, speculator...over the long term, investors more likely to make $$$ than others? No right or wrong method, so long happy, make profits and harm nobody. Good luck!

A lower beta stock, i.e less than 1 would theoretically "outperform" the market with the magnitude of decline lesser than the overall market.

Kevin, I agree. There are probably thousands of ways making money in the market. Warren Buffett and George Soros both have different ways of approaching the market, but both of them are successful.

But recently, the price of the share seldom down even the market sentiment is so weak. Feeling weird! Compare our Market with Singapore, their price is really dropping even bank sector such as OCBC, DBS and UOB. The PE is ard 8 only, but for HL Bank and PB Bank, they still enjoy double digits PE.

Those are the index counters that the invisible hands are defending. Imagine what will happen to the market if the these index counters also collapse.
