Banking: Neutral
Earnings growth cut

Neutral. We maintain our Neutral stance on the banking sector on the premise that valuations are fair for most of the stocks within our coverage, particularly amid a competitive operating environment and slower earnings growth projections. Top picks in the sector continue to be AMMB Holdings, BIMB Holdings and CIMB Holdings.

The FBM KLCI rebounded 29.28-points and closed at 1,474.09 last Friday. The local market remained somewhat firm on low volume buying on blue chip stocks as the bourse played catch-up with global markets over the 3-day holiday break. The weaker support areas for the FBM KLCI are located in the 1,423 to 1,470-zone. The next resistance levels of 1,474 and 1,511 will see very heavy liquidation activities.

Trading Idea is a technical Take Profit call on GAMUDA.
