Market Review

Malaysia: The FBM KLCI (-0.02%) extended its losses after erasing all its intraday gains, dragged down by the eleventh hour selling pressure in selected index heavyweights such as Petronas Dagangan and IOI. The lower liners staged a mild recovery, while the broader market finished mostly lower yesterday.

Global markets: US stockmarkets extended their gains to all-time highs as the Dow added 0.8% on the Inauguration Day of Joe Biden that will speed up the progress of US$1.9tn economic stimulus package. European stockmarkets were upbeat, while Asia stockmarkets finished mostly higher.

The Day Ahead

Tracking the strong gains on Wall Street overnight after Joe Biden was sworn in as the 46th US president, we expect rebound could be seen on the local front especially on the technology sector. Nevertheless, market volatility remains in place amid the expansion of MCO to all states except for Sarawak due to the worsening of the Covid-19 situation. On the banking sector, we expect trading interest will be seen after BNM’s move to keep the interest rate unchanged until the next meeting. Meanwhile, we expect the vaccine rollout plan that could come in 1Q21 may benefit the distribution segment.

Sector focus: Given the above setup, investors may lookout for stocks within technology sector amid the rally in global tech stocks, coupled with the chip shortages narrative. Meanwhile, furniture and packaging industry may be traded actively as orders are packed at least for the near term and cold chain logistics may be focused ahead of the upcoming vaccine rollout plan.

FBMKLCI Technical Outlook

The FBM KLCI managed to hold above the psychological level at 1,600 albeit selling pressure was noticed in the final trading hour. The key index is expected to move sideways with support level pegged at 1,570-1,590, and resistance level at 1,620-1,640. Indicators remained negative for the third straight trading session as the MACD Histogram has extended another red bar, while the RSI remains below 50.

foo 《2021年财政预算案》带来的利好消息分析员均认为,政府没有如市场预料般向4大手套厂征收暴利税而是要求相关公司捐献合计4亿令吉供政府购买疫苗和医疗设备。政府今年将拨款10亿令吉推动国内高附加价值科技领域的研究和发展活动受惠的工业区有槟城峇都加湾、吉打居林科技园区内的航天和电子领域。基于政府拨款1亿5000万令吉支持中小企业迈向数码科技,大众投行分析员认为,阁代科技(GREATEC,0208,科技股)可从该措施获利,因阁代科技在上述两科技园区内均有厂房。维毅集团(ISTONE,0209,科技股)、MMS创投(MMSV,0113,科技股)、腾达科技(PENTA,7160,科技股)和伟特科技(V I T R O X,0097,科技股)这些自动化解决方案供应商会是受惠公司。
