The FBM KLCI drifted lower earlier Wednesday but rebounded to close flat on lastminute
buying amid cautious market sentiment. Nevertheless, we believe bargain
hunting activities should emerge with the return of foreign participation in our local
stock markets on the back of our reopening of economic activities following
several relaxations of SOPs under our National Recovery Plan; month-to-date
foreigners have registered an inflow of RM904.6m. Commodities wise, the crude

Technically, traders may anticipate for a breakout above RM1.10, to target next resistances at RM1.16-1.26 with long term target set at RM1.43.
We gather that this would be KGB’s single largest project win to-date. The move subsequently boosted KGB orderbook replenishment year-to-date to another record high at approximately RM764.0m (inclusive of smaller scale projects). This also exceeded our orderbook replenishment target of RM450.0m for FY21f. We expect the momentum to continue with another RM50-100m worth of projects coming into the picture for KGB to wrap up the record year, premised to the strong global semiconductor sales.
The FBM KLCI sank for a fourth consecutive session as the key index accelerated
to the downside throughout the session, mainly dragged down by PMETAL and
most banking heavyweights. Concerns over the possible interest rate exemption
for loan moratorium repayments, coupled with the possibility of imposing windfall
tax spooked the market. However, we believe market may be turning oversold soon
and likely to expect bargain hunting activities to emerge. Meanwhile, both the CPO
and crude oil prices extended gains, while the Baltic Dry Index (BDI) continued its
Moving forward, T&T Group on track to commission 800.0-MW of solar PV and onshore win projects by end-2021. We gather that T&T Group is has recently launch a strategic collaboration with Ørsted, the largest energy company in Denmark for the development of offshore wind in Vietnam. This strategic partnership is expected to generate an estimated total installed capacity of nearly 10.0-GW and total investment value of about USD30.0bn (to be phased in investment over 20 years).
Tracking the overall negative regional performances, the FBM KLCI dipped for a
third straight session amid sour market sentiment on heavy selling in selected
heavyweights led by TOPGLOV. However, tracking the positive rebound on Wall
Street, coupled with the stability in the political landscape following the MoU inked
between the federal coalition and Pakatan Harapan yesterday, we believe the
recent bashed down in broader market may to be cushioned out by potential
bargain hunting activities at least for this week. Commodities wise, both the CPO
and crude oil prices advanced, while aluminium prices continue to charge higher.

Technically, price has formed a flag-formation breakout above RM2.33, targeting the resistances at RM2.49-2.65 with long term target set at RM2.86.
We gather that current average selling prices remains favourable for SLP owing to the rise in resin prices. Traditionally, plastic packaging players adopt a cost-pass-through mechanism, though there will be approximately 3 months of time lag. At the same time, the weakening ringgit against the greenback also bodes well for SLP which derived RM39.5m or 45.1% of revenue from overseas in 6MFY21.
The FBM KLCI extended its decline with marginal losses on Friday, after erasing
most of the earlier gains and the sentiment remained mixed. Nevertheless, the
local bourse continued to see buying support from foreign and retail investors on
the back of brighter economic recovery prospects driven by positive developments
in NRP and vaccination rate. Meanwhile, aluminium price remained elevated,
surging above USD2,900 level as market digested the predictions from the Harbor
Aluminum Summit attendees that supply shortage is unlikely to be alleviated in the
short term. Crude oil price reversed and closed above USD72 per barrel level, while
CPO dropped below RM4300.

pressure from foreign funds; it turned net sellers with a net outflow of RM63.0m,
snapping 12 sessions of net buying streak. Glove counters extended their retreat
amid the on-going vaccination progress. Going forward, we expect recovery theme
to stay focus in the anticipation of the reopening of more economic activities,
where most stocks might be oversold after being bashed down yesterday.
Commodities wise, both CPO and crude oil prices dipped, while the aluminium
price continued trending higher.
The FBM KLCI was up firmly in the positive territory following a volatile session, as
last-minute buying in selected heavyweights led by PMETAL (+17.0 sen) and MISC
(+30.0 sen) lifted the key index. Economic recovery seems to be on track with
Kuala Lumpur, and Putrajaya transitioning to Phase 2 of the NRP from Friday, and
active cases dropping for the eighth consecutive day; investors might turn more
optimistic going forward. Nevertheless, investors may mildly cautious ahead of the
OPR decision by Bank Negara today, where BNM statement may provide clues to
the current economic situation and future recovery outlook for Malaysia.
Commodities wise, both CPO and crude oil prices advanced.
On a brighter note, we reckon that the coal fired thermal power plant will continue to
anchor the bottom line in 2H21. Although Vietnam has entered into an extended
lockdown since July 2021, we reckon that utilisation rate to remain afloat (above
70% level), supported by sustainable demand. Going forward, we see JAKS leaning
towards expansion of renewable energy sector, both local and internationally.

After fluctuating between modest gains and losses for most of the day, the FBM
KLCI (+0.1%) inched up as gains in PMETAL outweighed losses in selected banking
and plantation heavyweights, powered by a surge in aluminium price. However,
tracking the weaker performance on Wall Street overnight, the local bourse may
turn sideways amid profit taking activities on the broader market. Nevertheless, we
expect the support from the recent net foreign buying amid the recovery hopes
following more sectors to be allowed to operate in Klang Valley in the anticipation
of moving into Phase 2 of NRP should be able to cushion the downside risk in the
market. Meanwhile, CPO price climbed while the crude oil price saw a pullback.
Bucking regional uptrend move, the FBM KLCI dipped into the negative territory in
mid-morning as selected plantation, banking and Petronas-linked stocks went
through some profit-taking activities. We believe the ongoing discussion on SOP
relaxation in preparation for the Covid-19 endemic phase, coupled with the
declining Covid-19 daily infections may continue to drive the recovery theme play
across the board. Commodities wise, CPO price climbed, while aluminium price
also increased on the back of concerns over raw material supply amid a coup in

The FBM KLCI finished on a positive note after a volatile session with selected
banking, plantation and shipping counters taking the lead, despite mixed
performances in the regional markets. Investors may look ahead to Malaysia’s
unemployment rate and the Bank Negara’s decision on interest rate which will be
released on Thursday. Meanwhile, the CPO price extended its gain to close above
RM4,300, the gold price rose, while the crude oil price retreated. Still, we expect the
recovery tone for the economic activities to pick up once with the decent
vaccination rate at this juncture.
The HSI futures clocked in its second weekly gain last week, ending at 25,845 (+1.9%) with four green days out of 5.

The FBM KLCI witnessed another session of pullback despite buying from local
retail and foreign investors, as the index constituents succumbed to further profit
taking activities after rebounding in mid-morning. With the average infection rate
(R-naught) dipping below 1.0 (based on 1st Sept data), while Melaka and Negeri
Sembilan being moved to Phase 2 and 3 of NRP from 4th September 2021, we
believe optimism remains in the recovery theme on the local bourse. Meanwhile,
the crude oil price rebounded and stood above USD72 per barrel, while CPO price
rose above RM4,200 level.
The FBM KLCI retreated yesterday, snapping a seven-day winning streak and
backing away from the 1,600 psychological level as profit taking activities kicked
in. However, we believe the local stocks to continue to eke out gains after taking a
breather as investors’ confidence could be boosted by the pre-budget statement
issued by the Finance Ministry which is believed to spur economic recovery.
Meanwhile, OPEC+ is expected to stick to the existing gradual output hike despite
