The KLCI climbed 12.24 points to close at 1,611.43, off an intra-day high of 1,617.43 and low of 1,601.04, as gainers edged losers 599 to 276 on total turnover of 2.55bn shares worth RM2.12bn. Crucial Supports at 1,579/1,550; Resistance at 1,626 Despite yesterday’s rebound, uncertainty over the ongoing trade war between the world’s two leading economic superpowers will likely persist to cloud near-term sentiment, pending further clarity to pacify jittery investors.

Asian Markets Rebound as Trade Fears Soften Asian stock markets are mostly higher on Wednesday following the positive cues overnight from Wall Street, as a slight softening in rhetoric from U.S. President Donald Trump eased worries about the U.S.-China tariff war, and on expectations that Beijing could unveil more economic stimulus. President Donald Trump on Tuesday downplayed tensions, calling the situation a “little squabble” and stressing what a good relationship he has with China’s President Xi Jinping. On economic front, China reported surprisingly weaker growth in retail sales and industrial output for April, adding pressure on Beijing to roll out more stimulus as the trade war with the United States escalates. Mainland Chinese shares advanced on the day, with the Shanghai composite adding 1.91% to 2,938.68 and the Shenzhen component rising 1.45% to 9,169.15. Japan’s Nikkei 225 rose 0.58% to close at 21,188.56. In South Korea, the Kospi rose 0.53% to close at 2,092.78 as shares of LG Chem jumped 2.71%. Over in Australia, the ASX 200 gained 0.71% to finish its trading day at 6,284.20. Page 1 of 10
  4. 16-May-19 Wall Street Ends Higher on Trade Optimism U .S. stocks rebounded for second day Wednesday amid developments in U.S. international trade relations that were being viewed as optimistic by investors who have become increasingly sensitive to tariff headlines. The Dow Jones Industrial Average rose 115.97 points, or 0.45%, to 25,648.02, the S&P 500 gained 16.55 points, or 0.58%, to 2,850.96 and the Nasdaq Composite added 87.65 points, or 1.13%, to 7,822.15. Stocks erased declines from earlier in the day after reports emerged that the Trump administration is putting off a final decision on whether to impose broad tariffs on automobile and auto-part imports, while Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin said U.S. negotiators are likely to travel to Beijing soon. The turnaround by stocks in reaction to the reports reflects the markets' intense sensitivity to trade-related news in light of the escalating trade dispute between the U.S. and China. Stocks initially came under pressure following the release of a report from the Commerce Department showing an unexpected pullback in U.S. retail sales in the month of April. The Commerce Department said retail sales edged down by 0.2% in April after spiking by an upwardly revised 1.7% in March. Of the 11 major sectors in the S&P 500, eight ended the session in positive territory, with communications services enjoying the largest percentage gain, led by Alphabet Inc and Facebook Inc.

The data also showed the number of elderly, those 65 years and over, increased from 2.07mn to 2.17mn over the same period. This trend is in line with other developed countries that are heading to aging population. The number of live births recorded had declined by 0.2% to 16,850 in 1Q19 from 117,032 a year ago.

(The Star) Government Sets Up Debt Management Office to Strengthen Fiscal Position The government has set up a Debt Management Office (DMO) to overcome and resolve the problem of hidden government debt and liabilities which grew more than RM1tn in 2017. Finance Minister Lim Guan Eng said the DMO would oversee the issuance and propose the structure of debt belonging to the Federal Government, all statutory bodies and the Government’s special purpose vehicles (SPV) in a holistic manner. “The Pakatan Harapan administration intends to cut the incidence of having expensive and irresponsible debt servicing payments arising from weaknesses in debt issuance coordination,” he said in a statement. The DMO is among the institutional reforms carried out to strengthen the government’s fiscal position that is closely monitored by international credit rating agencies, he said. Lim said the DMO was designed to keep government debt and liabilities in check by preventing it from growing out of control, while ensuring that reckless borrowing made without valid reasons will no longer occur. He added Prime Minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad had agreed to the setting up of the DMO. (The Star) Asia China Central Bank Skips OMO as First Phase of RRR Cuts Come Into Effect China's central bank said it will skip open market operations on Wednesday as liquidity levels in the banking system were "reasonable and ample". The People's Bank of China (PBOC) said the first phase of reserve requirement ratio (RRRs) cuts came into effect on Wednesday, and the move released about CNY100bn (USD14.55bn) worth of long-term funds. The central bank said last Monday that it would implement its cut in RRRs for some small- and medium-sized banks in three phases, as part of wider efforts to help companies weather a slowdown in the world's second largest economy. On a net basis, the PBOC will drain CNY10bn from the market for the day via open market operations as the same amount in reverse repos is due to mature on Wednesday. (The Star) Page 5 of 10
  8. 16-May-19 China Industrial Output Cools , Retail Sales Growth Falls to 16-Year Low as Trade Risks Rise China reported surprisingly weaker growth in industrial output and retail sales for April, reinforcing expectations that Beijing needs to roll out more stimulus measures as the trade war with the United States escalates. Investment also stumbled unexpectedly, suggesting China’s economy is still struggling for better footing even as a sharp hike in U.S. tariffs on Friday ratcheted up pressure on its exporters. Growth in industrial output slowed more than expected to 5.4% in April from a year earlier, pulling back from a surprising strong 41/2 year high of 8.5% in March, which some analysts had suspected was boosted by seasonal and temporary factors. Analysts polled by Reuters had forecast output would grow 6.5% for the month. China’s exports unexpectedly shrank in April in the face of U.S. tariffs and weaker global demand, while factory surveys suggest new export orders remain sluggish. Retail sales were also worse than expected, with the headline number rising 7.2%, the slowest pace since May 2003, data from the National Bureau of Statistics (NBS) showed. That compared with March’s 8.7% and forecasts of 8.6%, highlighting concerns that consumers are growing less confident as the economic slows and the trade war drags on. Earlier this week, industry data showed automobile sales in China fell 14.6% in April on-year, marking the 10th consecutive month of decline. Fixed-asset investment growth slowed to 6.1% in the first four months of this year. Analyst polled by Reuters had expected it to rise 6.4%, picking up from 6.3% in the first quarter of this year. Private sector fixed-asset investment grew 5.5% in the same period, easing sharply from an increase of 6.4% in the Jan-March period. Private investment accounts for about 60% of overall investment in China. Growth in infrastructure spending, a powerful economic driver, held steady at 4.4% on-year in Jan-April from the first quarter of this year. China is trying to engineer a construction boom to rekindle demand, even as it steps up support measures to keep cash-starved smaller companies afloat, ranging from tax cuts to financial incentives for firms which do not lay off staff. (Reuters) Australia Business Conditions Weaken in April Australia business conditions weakened in April and confidence edged up slightly from March but remained well below average, survey data from the National Australia Bank showed. The business conditions index dropped to +3 from +7 in March. Meanwhile, the confidence index rose 1 point to zero in April. As the confidence indicator remained below average, it suggested little improvement in business conditions in coming months, NAB observed. The bounce in conditions in March was short-lived, as we expected given the weakness in forward looking indicators. The employment index logged a sharp decrease, falling to -1, while trading and profitability each declined by 4 points each. The forward looking indicators of the survey continue to suggest that the weakening in conditions over the second part of 2018 is unlikely to be reversed any time soon, Oster added. (RTT) Australia's Wages Grow at Less-than-Expected Australia's wages grew less-than-expected in the March quarter, figures from the Australian Bureau of Statistics showed. The wages price index climbed 0.5% sequentially in the first quarter. That was just below the 0.6% rise economists had forecast. On a yearly basis, wages increased at a steady pace of 2.3% in the March quarter, for the third quarter in a row, and in line with expectations. Wages in private sector rose by 0.5% and that in the public sector grew 0.4% over the previous quarter. The main contributors to growth over the quarter were regularly scheduled wage rises in the health care and social assistance, and education and training industries, as was the case in the previous March quarter.

  9. 16-May-19 Indonesia Posts Biggest Trade Deficit Ever in April Indonesia posted its widest monthly trade deficit in history in April as exports slumped , while the pace of fall in imports was slower than expected, data from the statistics bureau showed on Wednesday. The resource-rich country booked its first trade deficit in three months at USD2.5bn in April, and it was the widest ever. This compared with a median forecast of USD500mn deficit in a Reuters poll and a USD671mn surplus a month before. The data makes the central bank even less likely to ease monetary policy in the near term. Bank Indonesia (BI) has been pressured to cut interest rates after the U.S. Federal Reserve turned dovish and Indonesian data, including benign inflation and weakening gross domestic product (GDP) growth, augur well for such a move. But officials have been saying they want to see significant reduction in Indonesia's current account deficit - which shows trade in goods and services - before making any cut. BI targets to shrink the current account deficit to 2.5% of GDP this year, from 3% in 2018. All 20 analysts in a separate poll forecast BI to keep its main interest rate unchanged for a sixth straight policy meeting on Thursday, as rising U.S.-China trade tensions renew pressure on the rupiah. There was little reaction in the rupiah spot market after the larger-than-expected April trade data, but the main stock index extended its losses. (The Star) United States Retail Sales Declined in April An important measure of consumer spending fell in April, signaling retail spending was sluggish as the second quarter began. Retail sales, a measure of purchases at stores, restaurants and online, declined a seasonally adjusted 0.2% in April from a month earlier, the Commerce Department said Wednesday. The drop fell short of the 0.2% increase economists had forecast. Excluding the volatile categories of autos and gas, retail sales declined 0.2% in April. Retail sales have been volatile in recent months, and the April report suggested that consumer spending remains uneven despite consumer-sentiment readings that broadly remain at high levels. After declining in February, retail sales bounced back strongly in March, rising a revised 1.7% on the month. The April decline was led by a drop in spending in key categories including electronics, home improvement and vehicles. Wednesday’s report showed sales at motor vehicle and parts dealers fell 1.1% last month. (WSJ) New York Manufacturing Growth Unexpectedly Accelerates in May New York manufacturing activity has picked up significantly in the month of May, according to a report released by the Federal Reserve Bank of New York on Wednesday. The New York Fed said its general business conditions index jumped to 17.8 in May from 10.1 in April, with a positive reading indicating growth in regional manufacturing activity. Economists had expected the index to drop to 8.5. With the unexpected increase, the New York Fed's general business conditions index reached its highest level since November of 2018. The unexpected increase by the headline index was partly due to a notable acceleration in the pace of shipment growth, with the shipments index surging up to 16.3 in May from 8.6 in April. The new orders index also rose to 9.7 in May from 7.5 in April, indicating a modest acceleration in the pace of new orders growth. (RTT) Page 7 of 10
  10. 16-May-19 U .S. Industrial Production Dropped in April The U.S. manufacturing sector faltered again in April, fresh evidence that a slowing global economy and trade frictions are squeezing part of the U.S. economy. Manufacturing output, the biggest component of industrial production, fell 0.5% in April from a month earlier, the Federal Reserve said Wednesday. That helped tug down broader output across factories, mines and utilities last month. So-called industrial production was down 0.5% in April, well below expectations among economists surveyed by The Wall Street Journal for a flat reading. In April, production of long-lasting goods, such as machinery, electrical appliances and motor vehicles, decreased sharply. The longer-term trend in manufacturing production shows the sector is pulling back after a strong 2018. In the first three months of 2019, manufacturing output declined by about 0.4% a month, on average. From a year earlier, manufacturing production fell 0.2% in April. Though manufacturing accounts for a small share of gross domestic product, the sector is highly sensitive to shifts in global demand, making it a bellwether for the broader U.S. economy. Manufacturing appears to be losing its footing domestically as goods-producing segments overseas flash signs of weakness. (WSJ) Trump Weighs Six-Month Window for EU, Japan to Curb Auto Sales President Donald Trump will give the EU and Japan 180 days to agree to a deal that would “limit or restrict” imports into the U.S. of automobiles and their parts, in return for delaying new auto tariffs, according to a draft executive order seen by Bloomberg. According to the order, which people familiar with the matter say Trump is expected to sign this week, the administration has determined that imports of cars into the U.S. present a threat to national security because they have hurt domestic producers and their ability to invest in new technologies. A report by the Commerce Department had found that America’s innovation capacity “is now at serious risk as imports continue to displace American-owned production.” Trump was facing a May 18 deadline to make a decision on auto tariffs. Japanese and European officials have made clear a quota arrangement like the one that Mexico and Canada agreed to in the new Nafta is a red line for them. The U.S. is in talks with both trading partners but autos are not currently part of discussions with the EU. The proclamation will exempt South Korea from any future tariffs because it has renegotiated the U.S.-Korea Free Trade Agreement, or KORUS, last year. Korean officials for months have lobbied the White House for an exemption of the potential tariffs but USTR wouldn’t commit to agreeing on one. Canada and Mexico agreed to limit exports of cars and parts to the U.S. as part of a renegotiated Nafta, although the limits are far above current exports. The U.S. imported US$191.7bn in passenger vehicles and light trucks in 2018 with more than US$90bn of those imports coming from Canada and Mexico, which are duty-free under Nafta. Passenger cars are now subject to a 2.5% U.S. tariff but Trump has threatened to raise that to 25%, arguing that the EU and other countries have higher barriers to U.S. auto exports. (Bloomberg) Eurozone Eurozone GDP Growth Doubles in Q1, Flash Confirmed Eurozone's quarterly economic growth rate doubled in the first three months of the year, latest figures from Eurostat showed on Wednesday, confirming the initial estimate released late April. Gross domestic product grew 0.4% from the fourth quarter of 2018, when the euro area economy expanded 0.2%. The pace of growth was the strongest since the second quarter of 2018, when the economy expanded at the same rate. On a year-on-year basis, GDP rose 1.2% in the first quarter, same as in the previous three months. Both quarterly and annual growth rates were in line with the preliminary estimates released on April 30. In the EU28, the quarterly pace of GDP growth improved to 0.5% from 0.3%. The year-on-year growth rate was steady at 1.5%. (RTT) Page 8 of 10
  11. 16-May-19 Germany ’s Economy Rebounds Despite Darkening Trade Outlook Germany’s economy rebounded in the first quarter after narrowly avoiding recession late last year, easing the immediate pressure on policy makers in Europe as the outlook continues to darken for global trade. The better-than-expected figures did little to assuage concerns among economists about the rest of the year. Downbeat business sentiment shows the world’s fourth-largest economy still faces a cocktail of risks that range from a slowdown in key markets to the U.K.’s messy departure from the European Union. The German economy expanded by 0.4% in the three months to March from the previous quarter, driven by vibrant private consumption and a booming construction sector, according to a first estimate published Wednesday by national statistics agency Destatis. The data will come as a relief to policy makers at the European Central Bank, who in March unleashed a fresh round of monetary stimulus to shore up the region’s stumbling economy. (WSJ) Page 9 of 10

RESULTS UPDATE Thursday , May 16, 2019 FBMKLCI: 1,611.43 Sector: Building Materials THIS REPORT IS STRICTLY FOR INTERNAL CIRCULATION ONLY* TP: RM4.26 (+29.1%) Cahya Mata Sarawak Bhd Last Traded: RM3.30 Dragged by Associates Chan Mun Chun Buy Tel: +603-2167-9731 mcchan@ta.com.my Review Excluding an exceptional net gain of RM830k and a reversal of provision for soil erosion remedial works of RM9.0mn, Cahya Mata Sarawak Berhad’s 1QFY19 core profit of RM30.9mn came in below expectations, accounting for 11.5% and 11.1% of ours and consensus’ full-year forecast respectively. The variance was mainly due to lower-than-expected profit contribution from the associates, as well as a decline in PBT recorded by the construction and road maintenance division. YoY, 1QFY19 core profit declined 27.3% to RM30.9mn despite a 17.8% jump in revenue to RM418.2mn. The drop in earnings was mainly dragged by lower profit contribution from the associates. In addition, the construction and road maintenance division suffered from margin squeeze as a result of cost revisions in projects and higher road maintenance costs. Nevertheless, other core businesses remain robust as most of the core divisions recorded revenue and PBT growth. The performance of cement division was exceptional as it managed to achieve 67.4% YoY growth in PBT. Besides higher production volume, the expansion in margin was mainly due to economies of scale achieved in production of clinker, coupled with lower repair costs. QoQ, 1QFY19 core profit plunged 30.5% to RM39.9mn as revenue was 15.8% lower at RM418.2mn. The weaker performance was generally affected by wet and festive seasons. www.taonline.com.my Share Information Bl oomberg Code CMS MK Stock Code 2852 Li s ti ng Ma i n Ma rket Sha re Ca p (mn) 1074.4 Ma rket Ca p (RMmn) 3545.4 52-wk Hi /Lo (RM) 3.92/1.74 12-mth Avg Da i l y Vol ('000 s hrs ) 1,832.7 Es ti ma ted Free Fl oa t (%) 28.1 Beta 1.7 Major Shareholders (%) Ma jaha rta Sdn Bhd - 12.6 Empl oyee Provi dent Fund - 11.3 Ta i b Lejl a - 10.4 Forecast Revision Foreca s t Revi s i on (%) Net profi t (RMmn) Cons ens us TA's / Cons ens us (%) Previ ous Ra ti ng Previ ous Ra ti ng Financial Indicators Net gea ri ng (x) CFPS (s en) P/CFPS (x) ROA (%) ROE (%) NTA/Sha re (RM) Pri ce/ NTA (x) FY19 FY20 270.0 274.8 278.1 285.9 97.1 96.1 Buy (Ma i nta i ned) Hol d (Downgra ded) FY19 Net cas h (9.3) (35.4) 5.9 10.3 2.5 1.3 FY20 Net ca s h 10.5 31.6 5.6 9.8 2.6 1.3 % of FY19 11.5 11.1 Bel ow Bel ow CMS (8.3) 10.0 6.1 (3.5) FBM KLCI (1.2) (4.6) (4.9) (12.8) Scorecard Impact We keep our earnings forecasts unchanged for the time being, with downward bias, pending an analyst briefing later today.

  18. RESULTS UPDATE Thursday , May 16, 2019 FBMKLCI: 1,611.43 Sector: Plantation THIS REPORT IS STRICTLY FOR INTERNAL CIRCULATION ONLY* K u a l a L u m p u r K e p o n g B e r h a d TP: RM19.35 Last Traded: RM24.40 Outlook Remains Challenging Angeline Chin Tel: +603-2167 9611 (-20.7%) SELL angelinechin@ta.com.my Review KLK's 1HFY19 results came in below expectations. Excluding the forex impact and other non-core items, 1HFY19 core net profit declined by 38.6% YoY to RM288.0mn. This accounted for 33% and 31% of our and consensus’ full-year estimate. Both manufacturing and plantation divisions showed weaker earnings on YoY basis. Plantation: Despite higher FFB (+5.6% YoY) and CPO (+5.2% YoY) production, 1HFY19 operating profit decreased by 57.0% YoY to RM232.5mn, mainly due to weaker average selling prices of CPO (-23.4% YoY to RM1,904/tonne) and palm kernel (-41.2% YoY to RM1,340/tonne). Manufacturing: 1HFY19 operating profit decreased by 22.6% YoY to RM216.7mn on the back of lower revenue (-13.5% YoY). The poor results were mainly attributed to i) decrease in selling prices, ii) lower contribution from Europe operations, and iii) lower contribution from the oleochemical division. However, the other manufacturing units reported higher profit of RM5.8mn compared with a loss of RM0.4mn in the previous year. Property: This segment recorded an operating profit of RM16.9mn in 1HFY19 compared to RM6.8mn in 1HFY18. The group declared a single-tier dividend of 15 sen for the quarter under review, similar to the corresponding period last year. Impact FY19 - FY21 earnings forecasts are revised downward by 9%-17.3% as we lower our earnings contribution for both plantation and manufacturing divisions. Outlook We believe that the oleochemical segment will continuously face stiff competition, especially in Indonesia. Margins are expected to be volatile due to the uncertainties in the market. According to management, the group will replant approximately 10k ha land in FY19 compared with 5,800 ha in FY18. We understand that the 10k ha includes the balance carry forward from FY2018 replanting program. We expect FFB production to grow by merely 5.1% in FY19. www.taonline.com.my Share Information KLK MK Bloomberg Code Stock Code 2445 Listing Main Market Share Cap (m) 1,065 Market Cap (RMm) 25,985 52-wk Hi/Lo (RM) 25.78/23.26 12-mth Avg Daily Vol ('000 shrs) 1,099 Estimated Free Float (%) 27.5 Beta 0.52 Major Shareholders (%) Batu Kawan Bhd - 47.03 EPF - 11.77 Amanah Saham Bumiputera - 5.82 Forecast Revision Forecast Revision (%) Net profit (RMm) Consensus TA's / Consensus (%) Previous Rating FY19 FY20 (17.3) (12.7) 727 848 918 1,038 79 82 Sell (Maintained) Financial Indicators Net debt/equity (%) CFPS (sen) P/CFPS (x) ROA (%) NTA/Share (RM) Price/ NTA (x) 3-year EPS CAGR (%) FY19 25.4 (7.9) nm 3.8 10.8 2.3 (12.6) FY20 25.8 (24.1) nm 4.3 11.1 2.2 (7.5) % of FY 33 31 Below Below KLK (2.1) (1.6) (1.9) (3.9) FBM KLCI (1.1) (4.6) (5.6) (13.3) Scorecard vs TA vs Consensus Share Performance (%) Price Change 1 mth 3 mth 6 mth 12 mth (12-Mth) Share Price relative to the FBMKLCI Valuation We downgrade KLK’s TP to RM19.35 (previously RM20.39) based on SOP valuation and roll forward our valuation to CY20.

The technical BUY/SELL signals on the last four columns are auto generated; the first two being existing or recent signals while the last two represent a signal change from BUY to SELL or the reverse, otherwise no change is indicated by a dash. INTERPRETATION OF TECHNICAL INDICATORS: Bollinger Bands: Variable width bands that narrow during less volatile periods and widen during more volatile periods. As a general rule, in a bearish trend, traders should buy when share price touches the lower band and exit when price touches the middle band. The reverse is true in a bullish trend, ie. Buy when price touches the middle band and sell when price touches the upper band. Momentum traders tend to buy on price breakouts above the upper band, and sell when price breaks down below the lower band. 14-day Relative Strength Index (RSI): A reading below 30 is considered oversold, above 70 is overbought. A rise above 50 with a corresponding share price surge above the 30-day moving average should be taken as a bullish move with good short-term upside potential. A fall below 50 and a simultaneous dip below the 30-day average is bearish and imply further near-term downside risk. Moving Averages: A stock’s short-term trend is bullish if share price stays above the 10-day moving average, and bearish if it stays below. The medium-term trend is positive if share price stays above the 30-day average, and negative if it remains below. A longer-term uptrend is intact if share price sustain above the 50-day average, and is deemed broken if it breaches below this level. Directional Movement Indicator (DMI): The DMI is an indicator of trend strength. A positive DMI difference (DMI diff) value is bullish and indicate a higher DI+ vs. DI-, while a negative DMI diff is bearish due to a lower DI+ vs. DI- (DMI diff = DI+ minus DI-). A crossover of DI+ above DI- triggers a BUY signal, while a SELL signal is flashed when the DI+ crosses below the DI-. The Average Directional Movement Index (ADX) indicates the strength of a trend, whether it is up or down. The higher the value of ADX, the stronger the trend. An ADX value above 25 suggests a trending market or stock, while a value below 20 signal congestion or absence of trend. Daily Moving Average Convergence Divergence (MACD): The MACD diff value is derived from the difference between the MACD line (the 12-day EMA minus the 26-day EMA) and the MACD signal line (the 9-day EMA of the MACD). A positive MACD diff value is bullish, while a negative MACD diff is bearish. A BUY signal is generated when the MACD diff rises above zero, and SELL signal sparked when the MACD diff value falls below zero. Page 1 of 4
  23. 16-May-19 Technical Comments : Buy on Dip IHH Healthcare & Tenaga Any price correction on IHH Healthcare shares below the lower Bollinger band (RM5.44)/towards the 38.2%FR (RM5.28) would be good buying opportunity for rebound towards the 30-day ma (RM5.54), with further resistance coming from 50-day ma (RM5.65) and 61.8%FR (RM5.70). Crucial support is found at 23.6%FR (RM4.98). Tenaga shares should see key retracement support from 176.4%FP (RM11.40) and 200%FP (RM10.74) cushioning correction, while upside on rebound is seen capped by 50-day ma (RM12.45) and 123.6%FP (RM12.88). .01 IHH HEALTHCARE (5225) Z RM5.52 (+0.05) BOLLINGER BANDS Upper Middle Lower RM RM RM SIMPLE MOVING AVERAGES 5.63 5.53 5.44 10-day 30-day 50-day RM RM RM DAILY MACD DMI Recent Signal Signal Change SELL Recent Signal Signal Change TENAGA (5347) RM RM RM SIMPLE MOVING AVERAGES 12.47 12.12 11.77 10-day 30-day 50-day SELL Recent Signal Signal Change DMI Recent Signal Signal Change SELL RM11.78 (-0.02) BOLLINGER BANDS Upper Middle Lower 5.51 5.55 5.66 RM RM RM DAILY MACD 12.05 12.24 12.45 SELL Page 2 of 4

Money Flow (MF) Calculation The value of money flow is set to zero at the start of the trading day. When a trade is performed, its price is compared to the price of the previous trade (the first trade of the day is compared to the previous day's close). If the prices differ, the money associated with the trade (price times number of shares) is added to or subtracted from the money flow. Additions (inflows, buys) are done on upticks; subtractions (outflows, sells) are done on downticks. Daily Money Flow (DMF) Interpretation In general, money flow trends confirm price trends. As prices rise, money flows are usually positive. As prices fall, money flows are usually negative. A divergence, however, between money flow and price trend can be a signal of a future price trend change. For example, a falling stock price with a positive money flow (IN) can indicate a future rally in the price of the stock. Conversely, a rising stock price with a negative money flow (OUT) implies potential correction in the stock price. Page 3 of 4

Money Flow (MF) Calculation The value of money flow is set to zero at the start of the trading day. When a trade is performed, its price is compared to the price of the previous trade (the first trade of the day is compared to the previous day's close). If the prices differ, the money associated with the trade (price times number of shares) is added to or subtracted from the money flow. Additions (inflows, buys) are done on upticks; subtractions (outflows, sells) are done on downticks. Daily Money Flow (DMF) Interpretation In general, money flow trends confirm price trends. As prices rise, money flows are usually positive. As prices fall, money flows are usually negative. A divergence, however, between money flow and price trend can be a signal of a future price trend change. For example, a falling stock price with a positive money flow (IN) can indicate a future rally in the price of the stock. Conversely, a rising stock price with a negative money flow (OUT) implies potential correction in the stock price.

This is a good watch list for momentum traders looking for short-term BUY ideas, as they are laggards with good upside potential towards the upper Bollinger band or higher to TAKE PROFIT/SELL. Caveat: Some stocks may continue to stay range bound and trade sideways, hence traders should refer to their respective charts to spot accumulation (volume growth) or breakout patterns. INTERPRETATION OF TECHNICAL INDICATORS: Moving Averages: A stock’s short-term trend is bullish if share price stays above the 10-day moving average, and bearish if it stays below. The medium-term trend is positive if share price stays above the 30-day, and negative if it remains below this average. 14-day RSI: A reading below 30 is considered oversold, above 70 is overbought. A rise above 50 with a corresponding share price surge above the 30-day SMA should be taken as a bullish move with good short-term upside potential. A fall below 50 and a simultaneous dip below the 30-day SMA is bearish and imply further near-term downside risk. Bollinger Bands: Variable width bands that narrow during less volatile periods and widen during more volatile periods. As a general rule, in a bearish trend, traders should buy when share price touches the lower band and exit when price touches the middle band. The reverse is true in a bullish trend, ie. Buy when price touches the middle band and sell when price touches the upper band. Momentum traders will buy on price breaks above the upper band, and sell when price breaks below the lower band. Alternatively, a sharp move that originates at one band tends to go all the way to the other band, a useful observation when projecting price targets. Page 1 of 2
  27. *Note: To qualify in the breakout list below, the first sorting criteria is stock price must close ABOVE the upper Bollinger Band, followed by a second criteria that trading volume for the day must be significantly higher than the 20-day average volume, which signal a bullish breakout. Caveat: We would caution momentum traders that a highly overbought 14-day RSI reading (> 80) and share price pullback BELOW the upper Bollinger Band are early warning signals to exit buy breakout trades.
