NEW YORK (Feb 15): Warren Buffett’s Berkshire Hathaway Inc took advantage of a plunge in bank stocks to pile even further into his bet on financials, while trimming a giant stake in Apple Inc.

Berkshire spent the last half of the year snapping up more shares of banks and insurers, moves that made the company a major shareholder in four of the five largest US banks. The Omaha, Nebraska-based conglomerate boosted its stake in JPMorgan Chase & Co and Bank of America Corp in the last three months of the year.

Yes, we think it is time to accumulate or average down for those that bought last year. But first and foremost we should be selectively picking stocks based on valuations. Malaysian equities are currently trading at about 24% below their historical price-to-book value, and such valuations are unlikely to persist amid the existing currency market dynamics. While the US dollar appears to have peaked, funds may start flowing back into the Asian region.

Also, markets tend to react positively over the long term on newly-elected leaders, and we expect this to be the same for Malaysia should the new government continue to deliver on its promises.

KUALA LUMPUR (Feb 16): Finance Minister Lim Guan Eng said that clarity and certainty provided by the Government in recalibrating the economy towards high-quality growth played a role in hastening the country’s Gross Domestic Product (GDP) expansion.

The Malaysian GDP grew healthily at a faster pace of 4.7 per cent year-on-year in the fourth quarter of 2018 compared with the third quarter growth of 4.4 per cent year-on-year despite external challenges of the ongoing United States-China trade war.

The shift to a shorter two-day settlement cycle (T+2) for the trading of securities on the local bourse will be effective from April 29 this year, according to local brokers.

Bursa Malaysia Securities Bhd launched a consultation paper early in December last year, seeking public feedback for the proposed move to a shorter securities settlement cycle from T+3 to T+2.

This was in view of improving operational efficiency and reducing systemic risks in Malaysia’s capital market, while aligning itself to the clearing and settlement processes of developed markets.

The local exchange planned to introduce the changes by the second quarter of 2019 after the consultation paper closed on Dec 28 last year.

Local brokers told The Malaysian Reserve (TMR) that April 29 will be the date of implementation for the T+2 cycle this year.

A market analyst said the T+2 trade cycle is aligned with the practices of most developed markets and could be geared at weeding out speculators in the market.

“The settlement period was at T+7 15 to 20 years ago, and investors have adjusted to the shorter cycle,” the source told TMR.

“While this will create a shorter period for speculators, genuine and long-term investors will be unperturbed by the new requirements,” said the industry source.

Bursa Malaysia announced earlier the shorter settlement period avails securities and funds earlier to investors, while reducing counter-party settlement risks due to the shorter exposure to unsettled trades.

The local bourse is also seeking to raise its competitiveness by aligning itself to major global exchanges in the US, Europe and Asia Pacific which already adopt the T+2 settlement cycle.

Rakuten Trade Sdn Bhd VP for research Vincent Lau said there will be an initial period of adjustment to the shorter settlement cycle which may affect trading volume, but the market will adjust quickly.

“Settlement cycles have been trending downwards in Malaysia and the move to T+2 is a good step to increase volume in the market,” he told TMR.

“The T+2 cycle will generate faster velocity in securities trading as investors can re-enter the market quicker (compared to the T+3 cycle).”

Meanwhile, the Royal Malaysian Customs Department is implementing a 6% service charge on securities brokerage and underwriting starting March 1 this year, in line with the Sales and Services Tax which came into effect in September last year.

It remains unclear how retail and institutional investors will react to the tax rate, but historically, investors have adjusted to the higher trading costs.

KUALA LUMPUR: Shares on Bursa Malaysia extended yesterday’s gains to open higher today as market sentiment was lifted by higher regional equities.

At 9.16am, the benchmark FTSE Bursa Malaysia KLCI (FBM KLCI) stood at 1,694.87, up 2.13 points from Monday’s close of 1,692.74.

The index opened 1.29 points firmer at 1,694.03.

In a note, Public Investment Bank Bhd said the FBM KLCI would continue to trend higher today as the regional equities kicked off the week with strong gains, propelled by a solid close on Wall Street on Friday.

“Stocks across Asia Pacific got off to a robust start after broad declines on Friday, as trade war optimism on Wall Street in the interim fed through to markets in the region,” it added.

Meanwhile, Wall Street was closed yesterday for a public holiday in honour of George Washington, the first President of the United States.

Among heavyweights on Bursa Malaysia, Maybank added one sen to RM9.49, Public Bank was flat at RM25, Tenaga eased two sen to RM12.98 and Petronas Chemicals gained 16 sen to RM8.73.

Of actives, EA Holdings and TRC Synergy were each one sen higher at 2.5 sen and 58.5 sen, respectively, while Bumi Armada lost half-a-sen to 22 sen.

The FBM Emas Index increased 15.56 points to 11,796.27, the FBM Emas Shariah Index went up 22.19 points to 11,725.91 and the FBMT 100 rose 15.34 points to 11,657.29.


The FBM Ace Index was 18.28 points higher at 4,672.46 and the FBM 70 rose 21.47 points to 14,093.43.

KUALA LUMPUR: Foreign funds withdrew RM369.2 million from Malaysian equities on Bursa Malaysia last week, compared to a net inflow of RM163.2 million in the prior week, according to MIDF Amanah Investment Bank Bhd Research.

In his weekly fund flow report, MIDF Research’s Adam M Rahim said this was the largest weekly foreign net outflow in eight weeks.

“On a daily basis, the five-day foreign net buying streak came to an end [last] Monday as global funds sold RM41.6 million net of local equities.

But foreign investors slowly returned to Bursa last Tuesday at a tune of RM6.6 million net, the lowest level in a day since early November last year,” he said.

However, Adam said RM122.1 million net of equities were taken out by foreign funds last Wednesday as investors ignored US President Donald Trump’s flexibility on the deadline for trade negotiations with Beijing.

Likewise, he said the local bourse lost 2.11 points or 0.1% to end at 1,685, the lowest close during the week.

Meanwhile, Adam said other Asian peers namely South Korea and Taiwan recorded sizeable foreign net inflows.

“While foreign net selling still occurred [last] Thursday and Friday, the pace slowed down to RM106.4 million and RM105.7 million, respectively.

“Malaysia’s 4Q18 (fourth quarter of 2018) GDP (gross domestic product) growth of 4.7% year-on-year (y-o-y), which was above market expectations of +4.5% y-o-y estimates, helped to ease the jitters coming from the deceleration in China’s factory inflation in January 2019, which slowed down for the seventh uninterrupted month,” he said.

Adam said for the first half of February 2019, offshore investors have so far disposed of RM206 million net, lowering the year-to-date (YTD) foreign net inflow into Malaysia to RM820.1 million.

“On the regional front, Malaysia is now the nation with the lowest foreign net inflow amongst the four Asean markets we monitor with Indonesia taking the lead with a YTD net inflow above RM3 billion while Thailand is the only one with a net outflow,” he said.

Adam said participation among all investor groups increased during the week.

He said foreign investors recorded the smallest weekly advance in average daily traded value, increasing by 15.3% to breach above the healthy level of RM1 billion.

For the first half of February 2019, offshore investors have so far disposed RM206 million net, lowering the year-to-date foreign net inflow into Malaysia to RM820.1 million.

“On the regional front, Malaysia is now the nation with the lowest foreign net inflow amongst the four Asean markets we monitor with Indonesia taking the lead with a year-to-date net inflow above RM3 billion while Thailand is the only one with a net outflow,“ MIDF said.

Participation amongst all investor groups increased during the week. Foreign investors recorded the smallest weekly advance in average daily traded value, increasing by 15.3% to breach above the healthy level of RM1 billion.
