Budget Talk....
« on: August 30, 2006, 08:49:13 AM »
It's that time of the year again...
Where speculators pray and wish what will happen and what surprises will we get in the coming Budget...

So, what would you like to happen?
What would make stock price & futures rise?

For me, hopefully plantation side and construction side :)
If these 2 are looked into and set a huge amount for... then very good :)

Oh YA... REITS REITS REITS!

Nothing...
Share price generally falls after budget

But if they were to allocate huge sums for construction, won't construction stocks like UEM builder rise?

Like for REITS, if some special tax incentive is given, won't that also boost REITS?

Yeah it would.
But normally, people buy on rumours sell on news
There are exceptions though.
But very difficult to predict.
Many established analyst tried in the past and failed miserably.
