Krungsri Securities predicted that the SET would move between 1,580 and 1,600 points on Thursday, despite positive news of a $2.26-trillion ten-year US stimulus plan.
The factors that would cause the index to fluctuate include the decreased price of crude oil and a rise in the US Ten-Year Treasury yield, Krungsri Securities said.
It suggested investors purchase:
> EA, GPSC and BPP shares as these firms will benefit from government support on electric vehicles.
> AOT, Mint, Centel, AAV, BA, CPN, CRC, Major, BDMS and BH, which benefit from Covid-19 vaccines in Thailand, as well as the government’s ambitious plan to reopen the country to foreign tourists.
> Hana, KCE, TU and CPF, which could gain from a weakened baht.
> ICHI, Sappe, RBF, DOD, IP, TACC, Gunkul, Kiss and PTG, which benefit from the use of hemp.
