SET expected to fluctuate amid mixed sentiments


Krungsri Securities forecast the Stock Exchange of Thailand (SET) Index on Tuesday would fluctuate between 1,635 and 1,655 points.

It said the index still gained positive sentiment from rising oil price and hopes over Thailand economic recovery after the country reopening on November 1.

 

"However, uncertainty over inflation, the US Federal Reserve's plan to taper its quantitative easing programme this year and signs of stock downward trend would pressure the index," Krungsri Securities said.

It also recommended buying of the following companies’ shares as an investment strategy:
▪︎ AOT, AAV, BA, MINT, KBANK, SCB, CPN, CRC, HMPRO, CPALL, AMATA, WHA, MAJOR, BTS and BEM, which benefit from the country reopening.
▪︎ PTT, PTTEP, TOP, PTTGC, SPRC and BCP, which benefit from rising oil price and gross refining margin.

The SET Index rose by 0.57 points or 0.03 per cent to 1,644.49 on Tuesday morning, witnessing a high of 1,649.66 and a low of 1,644.30 in opening trade.
