Monday, October 3, 2011

KUALA LUMPUR: The Malaysian stock market was battered on the first trading day in October, sending the FBM KLCI down 1.41% or 19.61 points to close at 1,367.52.

All key regional markets and European bourses fell after Greece's admission that it will miss its deficit targets for this year. Hong Kong’s Hang Seng Index tumbled 4.38%, Thailand’s SET Index down 5.12% and Jakarta’s Composite 5.64%.

OSK Research said “there is downside to the KLCI although with non-GLICs supposedly close to maximum cash levels and GLICs supposedly not aggressively supporting the market up till now, further downside maybe somewhat less than our recession market bottom of 1,086”.

The research house said it did not see any clear market moving catalyst from the Budget 2012 proposals, which would be announced on Friday.

Instead, it would focus on the 1,300 level, beyond which it would recommend more aggressive bottom fishing.

“Sticking to defensives for now and our September Top Buys which have outperformed the KLCI. Bottom fishing stocks such as Genting, Parkson and Dialog which will be attractive if the KLCI falls below 1,300,” it said.
