Cement...

"“Things could be looking up for the building materials industry, especially the cement and steel players. The Ninth Malaysia Plan (9MP) is a light at the end of the tunnel,” he said......LMC is believed to have the biggest market share at 44%. This is followed by YTL Cement Bhd (24%), Cement Industries of Malaysia Bhd (16%) and Tasek Corp Bhd (13%). "  - biz.thestar.com.my

Hmm... this looks interesting... Cement in demand...

One of the big gainers of the list above that I like is YTL Cement. Check out it's pass year rise...

Anyone have any comments?

With so many construction projects expected from 9th M'sian plan, one should not forget cement industries. No cement, no building.

"Although the Ninth Malaysia Plan (9MP) theme “favours” construction counters, building material providers can be safer bets for investors...Lafarge expects construction projects to start kicking in by the fourth quarter of this year,” AmResearch said" -biz.thestar.com.my
