Bank Negara’s OPR in focus

Bargain hunting activities emerged on the glove counters after more than one week of pullback, lifting the FBM KLCI and the healthcare sector higher. Market will be looking forward to the second Monetary Policy Committee meeting today to gauge market movements. However, economists anticipate an unchanged stance on the Overnight Policy Rate (OPR) amid expectation of an economic recovery. We believe the lower liners will continue to remain upbeat if the positive market sentiment persists. Meanwhile, the Brent oil price has seen a rebound.

Streched valuations

Bucking the downturn across the regional markets, the FBM KLCI ended modestly higher as continued selling in glove heavyweights were offset by buying support in IHH and selected banking heavyweights. We believe the local bourse should trade in an upward bias tone following the change of MCO status for Selangor, Johor, Penang and KL. Meanwhile, the number of Covid-19 confirmed cases daily has dropped to year-to-date low. However, note that the negative sentiment on Wall Street overnight could cap the upside potential on the local front.

Technical Focus – LHI

One of the largest fully integrated producers of poultry, eggs and livestock feed in Southeast Asia with strong presence in Malaysia, Indonesia, Vietnam and Singapore. Committed to expand the Malaysia, Philippines and Vietnam operations via additional capacities and infrastructures, whilst targets 160 Baker’s Cottage outlets by end-FY21 (from 103 outlets since end-FY20). Sequential earnings recovery is on the table, premised to the stabilising poultry prices in Malaysia as well as Indonesia in recent months. Technically, the flag-formation breakout above RM0.71 may lead price towards the immediate resistances at RM0.775-0.82, with long term target at RM0.885.

Rebound in sight

The FBM KLCI ended the first trading session of March in red amid continued selling pressure in glove heavyweights following further developments on Covid-19 vaccine. Although the arrival of the Covid-19 vaccine has dented the sentiment on healthcare sector, the local bourse was supported by the positive sentiment on the recovery-theme sectors. Meanwhile, we also expect 5G and tech stocks to trade firmer following overnight Nasdaq performance.
