Bargain hunting may take shape

The FBM KLCI surrendered its gains amid hawkish comments from the Feds, alongside its regional peers. However, with the strong rebound overnight on Wall Street, coupled with the gradual subsiding in Covid-19 daily cases, bargain hunting may lift the sentiment on the local bourse. Also, we believe market participants should focus on recovery theme stocks given the vaccination rate is improving in Malaysia. Meanwhile, the oil price climbed near the USD75 on the back of weaker USD; while the CPO price continued its downtrend move.

Striding high, but volatility still a feature

Investors may continue to stay defensive amid the ongoing battle of the Covid-19 health pandemic and the recent political developments, but the downside risks may be cushioned by the rising daily vaccination rate as the government target to achieve 80% herd immunity by the third quarter of this year.
