Reuters- A sharp decline in technology stocks pulled both the Nasdaq and the S&P 500 indexes into the red on Thursday, while the Dow managed to notch a record closing high with a lift from bank and energy shares.

Declines in Facebook (FB.O), off 2.8 percent at $115.14, and Microsoft (MSFT.O), down 1.8 percent to $59.18, sent the Nasdaq to its lowest close since Nov. 14, while the S&P 500 technology index .SPLRCT dropped 2.3 percent, its worst daily performance since June 24.

While the S&P 500 has gained more than 2 percent since the November election on hopes that President-elect Donald Trump’s policies will trigger inflation and hasten a rise in interest rates, technology stocks have failed to participate, dropping nearly 3 percent.

“In a higher rate environment you are going to want to pay less for growth further out. To a large extent that is probably what is happening in the higher (price-to-earnings) stocks,” said Kim Forrest, senior equity research analyst at Fort Pitt Capital Group in Pittsburgh.

“Everybody is getting tarred and feathered.”

The Dow advanced as gains in high-priced names in the financial and energy sectors climbed. Goldman Sachs (GS.N), up 3.3 percent, accounted for more than 50 points to the plus side for the price-weighted index. The stock is up more than 24 percent since the election.

The Dow Jones industrial average .DJI rose 68.35 points, or 0.36 percent, to 19,191.93, the S&P 500 .SPX lost 7.73 points, or 0.35 percent, to 2,191.08 and the Nasdaq Composite .IXIC dropped 72.57 points, or 1.36 percent, to 5,251.11.


The Sun Daily:Property prices are expected to drop further in 2017 on the back of unresolved issues in home pricing, high rejection of loan applications, rising living costs and lower income growth, according to the PropertyGuru Property Price Index.

Average asking price could see a further drop of RM35 to RM40 per square foot (psf) in 2017, particularly in the high-rise segment which is facing an oversupply.

“Homes priced between the RM500,000 and RM700,000 are likely to see the most number of loan rejections and hence slower sales,” said PropertyGuru country manager Sheldon Fernandez.

In the middle of 2016, average asking price was RM554 psf, down from RM586 psf a year ago, shared PropertyGuru.

“Based on the combined data from the PropertyGuru Property Price Index and official statistics, 2017 is expected to be another slow year for the property market.

With the completion of many new developments flooding the market in 2017, there is likely to be a drop in selling price due to the lack of demand; and some may be motivated to move their units quickly due to their lack of holding power,” he said.

However, Fernandez pointed out that landed properties at strategic locations could maintain their valuations or even see marginal price appreciation.

On the bright side, the rental market is expected to remain strong, fuelled by a growing pool of young and aspiring first-time homebuyers who may defer their home-purchase decision.


The Sun Daily:With the Organisation of Petroleum Exporting Countries (Opec) members finally agreeing to cut oil production by 1.2 million barrels per day, the ringgit, which has yet to see any signs of rebound, could be supported in the near term, according to analysts.

The ringgit weakened marginally by 0.01% to 4.4668 against the US dollar yesterday, fast approaching the 4.50 level.

In London trading at 1030 GMT yesterday, Brent crude was up 51 cents at US $52.35 per barrel and US West Texas Intermediate was 47 cents higher at US$49.91 per barrel.

“We would expect the rise in crude oil price to lend support for the ringgit in the immediate term,” MIDF Research said in its research note yesterday.


Bursa Malaysia ended on a firm note on Thursday lifted by buying support in heavyweight energy stocks following the ally in oil prices.

Yesterday, KLCI was up 7.32 points or 0.45% to 1626.44.   The index opened 1.98 points higher at 1,621.10 in the morning. Market breadth was positive with 493 gainers as compared to 307 losers while 297 unchanged. Trading volume, however, decreased to 1.529 billion shares worth RM1.6bil.

Dealers said the performance of the local bourse was mainly lifted by the buying interest in selected heavyweights and oil and gas counters.

Crude Oil: 50.91, +2.97%
Brent Oil: 53.68, +3.55%
Gold: 1,173.00, -0.08%
Silver: 16.568, +0.52%

Only World Group

Only World group is set to benefit from the increased tourist arrivals with the introduction of eVisa in 2017 for South Asian tourists to Malaysia. With the official opening of Komtar set for 18 Dec, we believe this would be a major rerating catalyst as we expect earnings to benefit substantially from the beginning of 1QFY17. The stock currently trades at a steep 50% discount to its F&B peers and we believe a significant P/E re-rating will be underway upon official opening of Komtar.

GHL Systems

We like GHL for its dominant position as an independent payment services provider with over 138k points of sale terminals across Asean. We expect GHL to become the largest independent merchant acquirer in Asean under its transaction payment acquisition (TPA) programme. GHL is also a proxy for the Malaysian government’s initiatives to promote cashless payments.

Kawan Food

The company’s existing operations are already running close to full capacity and the new factory has come at the right time. Kawan’s new factory should start commercial production by year-end, likely tripling the production capacity of its roti paratha and chapati products, which are its main products. The new warehouse is 5-6x the size of its existing warehouse. In addition, the stock is an attractive US$ play as more than 60% of its revenues are transacted in US$.

BursaKakis Channel , [02.12.16 10:12]
Karex Berhad

As an export-orientated counter, we like Karex as a key beneficiary of the weak ringgit as it would benefit from currency gains. The stock would also benefit from the recovering tender market volumes given that NGOs/government orders are set to re-stock due to current minimum inventory holdings.

With the group continuing to grow its own brand manufacturing (OBM) segment aggressively, we believe that this would be earnings accretive in the long run given the OBM products generate better margins. Also, we believe that the stock deserves a scarcity premium as a pure condom manufacturing play.

Bonia Corporation

We are positive on Bonia on the back of expectations of: i) earnings recovery from the continued closure of its loss-making licensed brands and own brand boutiques; ii) higher contribution from its Indonesian unit – on the back of the full-year contribution from its newly added Braun Buffel boutiques; and iii) continued focus on brand building in Indonesia and Vietnam.

Sasbadi Holdings

Its direct selling division promoting i-Learn Ace (iLA) should see strong sales once school starts in early Jan. Demand should be strong for iLA as we believe parents will find their children are more productive and efficient, using iLA. Sales momentum for ILA should pick up strongly from Jan-2017 onwards
