The global liquidity continues to drives market higher. China PPI number is expected to peak in April or May at 8-8.5% and investors are increasingly optimistic as China has turned the corner from deflationary to moderate inflationary which is generally good for consumption. From the government work plan, fiscal policy is the preferred choice to drive growth. Instead, we expect a normalization in property market. Earnings growth for 2017 is projected at 15% driven by Energy, Materials, Internet and Tech. For Taiwan, near-term market may see some resistances by policy concerns on tax reform proposal. Our main focus continues to be the cyclical tech stocks specific with current theme like TSMC. For Korea, we avoid exposure to China and to focus on tech. 40.00 20.00 0.00 -20.00 -40.00 -60.00 Mar-12 Mar-17 Dow Jones Islamic Market Index Asia Pacific (ex-Japan) The value of units may go down as well as up.

Indonesia is expected to be volatile on the back of the 2nd round of Jakarta’s government election. While for Philippines, market are waiting for the government to deliver on its infrastructure promise and tax reform initiatives to re-rate.
