Their Advice To Investor

"As the economy will likely experience a cyclical recovery in the period ahead, there are more values in high growth sectors, in our view. While more values could be found in the mid to smaller-cap stocks with sound fundamentals and accumulate them on weakness" - RHB Research Institute, Malaysia

"Buy on weakness" - BIMB Securities Bhd

"This will very much be a stock-picking year and we advice investors to focus on the value stocks in near term, and notice the big-caps on broader market dips" - Maybank IB Research
