Trump’s Win – Bark Worse Than Bite?

While Asian equity markets may remain soft after the surprise of Donald Trump’s win in the US presidential election, we look forward to buying opportunities. Essentially, we do not expect significant economic repercussions on Malaysia’s economy or corporate earnings, save for the indirect impact on downward biases for the ringgit vs the US dollar and on interest rates. We highlight the trough prices of our conviction picks, as well as some buying opportunities.

WHAT’S NEW
Near-term confidence pricked. Asian equity markets have swooned on knee-jerk reactions to Trump’s surprise win; the FBMKLCI eased 1%. Despite the major turnaround in US equities after Trump’s acceptance speech which promoted national unity and stressed on fiscal stimulus (the DJI futures initially fell by as much as 800 pts before the cash DJI remarkably recovered to positive territory), investment sentiment in Asia may remain damp and to be swayed by Trump’s anti-globalisation rhetoric. Nevertheless, we do not expect the situation to deteriorate into a major black swan event. Hence, the FBMKLCI’s potential downside would continue to be mild.  
Modest economic ramifications. We reckon there would be plenty of legislative check-and-balances (including internal fractions in the Republican party) that would moderate some of Trump’s drastic and outwardly anti-globalisation stances. For now, we factor in the indirect effects of downside biases on the ringgit and on Malaysia’s benchmark interest rate, consistent with our economic team’s assessment (refer to RHS for economics projections). Such a scenario benefits exporters and high-yielders (eg REITs).
Scouting for buying opportunities. We provide suggested entry prices for our key recommended stocks, separately based on our analysts’ fundamental valuation assessments as well as our technical chartists’ assessment.

ACTION
We maintain our end-16 FBMKLCI target at 1,700, which implies 16.6x 2017F PE, or +1.3 SD to the historical mean of 14.7x. Factoring in a general election by mid-17, we continue to expect the FBMKLCI to firm up by the year end.
Focus list: Alpha and selected top picks. Our top alpha picks continue to include Ekovest (see RHS table), Genting Malaysia , Inari , Kim Loong , Scientex and Tenaga . Among these picks, we note that Scientex has retraced materially from its recent high. Apart from alpha picks, we also identify Ann Joo, Genting Bhd and VS Industry as probable rebound candidates with near-term event catalysts.
Our top picks are BIMB Holdings, Gamuda and Tenaga for large-caps, and, Ann Joo, Ekovest, Hume Industries, Inari, Kim Loong, MRCB-Quill REIT and VS Industry for small-mid caps.

FBM KLCI Technical Outlook

fbmklci expected range

Stocks on Bursa Malaysia snapped a three-day losing streak to end higher last Friday on bargain hunting in selected heavyweights, which saw late fund buying of Tanaga Nasional and Malayan Banking. Bargain hunting by institutional funds supported the local market but further gains were limited by fears of a better-than-expected US third-quarter gross domestic product data which will be out later of the day. Asian stock markets were mixed as they were still affected by a flurry of major corporate earnings reports across the region and the declining oil prices. The ringgit weakened further against the US dollar at 4.1970/1020 from the 4.1810/1900 recorded on Thursday, tracking the performance of emerging Asian currencies. At close, the FBM KLCI settled at 1,670.27, up 1.24 points or 0.07%, from Thursday’s close of 1,669.03, after opening 0.58 of a point higher at 1,669.61 and moved between 1,666.97 and 1,671.72 throughout the day. On a weekly basis, the benchmark index gained 0.29 of a point from 1,669.98 on previous Friday. Losers led gainers by 428 to 335 with 387 counters unchanged. Volume was lower at 1.48 billion units worth RM1.66 billion from 1.49 billion units worth RM1.61 billion on Thursday. Weekly turnover increased to 7.58 billion units worth RM8.62 billion versus previous week’s 5.75 billion units worth RM8.51 billion.

On the weekly chart, the FBM KLCI formed a white shooting-star candlestick, a top reversal candlestick pattern, which indicates the key index had experienced some profit taking activity at latter part of the week after the initial upsurge on last Monday. Hence, the FBM KLCI is likely to further consolidate or correct downward in the coming week. On the daily chart, however, the FBM KLCI formed a white spinning-top candlestick in bullish Harami position, in which the white spinning-top indicated indecision of market direction with mild upward bias and the two-day bullish Harami pattern indicated a change in market sentiment from very bearish on Thursday to mildly bullish on Friday, and hence, the FBM KLCI is likely to stay in range-bound consolidation today with mild upward bias. Immediate downside support zone is at 1,666 to 1,663 points, while the immediate overhead resistance zone is at 1,674 to 1,679 points.
 
Weekly MACD continued to climb higher after hooking upward the previous week, and made a golden-cross over the zero-line, issuing a buy signal on the weekly timeframe, and its histogram also extended upward for a second bar, indicating further increase in the weekly momentum. Daily MACD, still above the zero-line and the signal-line, continued to slide lower and its histogram also further contracted downward, indicating further decline in the index’s daily momentum. Weekly RSI (14) was marginally higher at 51.3 from 51.2, indicating mild improvement in the weekly relative strength and a state of consolidation. Daily RSI (14) hooked upward to 51.5 from 50.4, indicating a mild technical rebound. Weekly Stochastic, still below the slow stochastic line, rose to 38.2 from 37, indicating a mild improvement of the weekly strength. Daily stochastic slipped lower to 69.6 from 78.7, indicating further weakening of the FBM KLCI on the daily timeframe and continuation of the daily down cycle. In short, readings from the weekly indicators showed that the FBM KLCI was gaining mild upward momentum, while the daily indicators showed that the FBM KLCI was losing its momentum and is in a consolidation mode.
 
The technical picture of the FBM KLCI still remained the same in that the trend is sideways range-bound for the short, medium and long term as indicated by the trend channel in blue colour, and the key index is still trapped in the bigger triangle formation. With the mild rebound on last Friday, the FBM KLCI continued to stay below the immediate horizontal support turned resistance at 1,672-point, and the key index is also closing below the 5-day SMA but is still staying above the 10-day SMA, indicating the key index has fallen back to the short term sideways range of 1,652 to 1,672 points. For the coming week, the FBM KLCI is likely to drift within a range of 1,651 to 1,691 points while waiting for fresh leads. 
 
Last Friday, the DJIA fell 8.49 points or -0.05% to close at 18,161.19. For the coming week, the FBMKLCI is likely to move within a range of 1,651 to 1,691, and today, the FBMKLCI is likely to move within a range of 1,662 to 1,676.
