Striding higher

Tracking the gains on regional markets, the FBM KLCI has closed at the highest level since the beginning of the year, with buying interest seen in the recovery themed stocks such as banking and gaming heavyweights. Investors shrugged off concerns on the first day of MCO 2.0 while the essential sectors remain opened. The key index may take a little following yesterday’s rallies, but we expect the downside to be limited. The lower liners saw some rebound signs as the indexes made significant headway yesterday after recent consolidation.

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.

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.

Chin Well Holdings Bhd – 1st Mar 21

With the recovery still remain at infant stage, we reckon that outlook remains challenging as global economic recovery remains at an uneven patch with temporary shutdown in manufacturing activities and tepid demand. While the North America segment remains upbeat, the softer demand from other regions of the world continues to bog down the overall performance.
