Top Story: Benchmarking – Tracking the benchmark

  • Market Update
  • Equal weighting all FBM KLCI stocks would have resulted in YTD gain of 3.4% (vs. the index of +2.3%) but this would still have underperformed vs. FBM100 which rose by 4.7%.
  • This implies that investors had to take an active risk position. We note that FBM KLCI followers had to get seven stocks right (Maybank, Sime, PetChem, Digi, Genting Malaysia, TM and PetDag), or underweight six others (TNB, MISC, KLK, YTL Corp, YTL Power and MAS). Big gainers outside of the FBM KLCI sectors and stocks included Dialog, SapuraCrest, Mah Sing, MCIL, UEM Land, DRB Hicom, and MPHB, highlighting the merits of bottom-up stock picking under current market conditions.

Sector Call


  • Sector Update
  • Gradual liberalisation of motor insurance
  • We believe that the move to detariff the motor insurance segment is positive for the industry in the long run. In the short to medium term, we believe the gradual premium increase would do little to cover losses stemming from the TPBID policies although we believe that it is in the right direction.

Corporate Highlights


  • News Update
  • RSPO suspends certification process
  • We believe this suspension has more to do with the NCR land dispute in Baram, Sarawak, than any other issue.
  • Maintain Underperform with fair value of RM5.90.
