Among the top gainers were Public Bank, BIMB, CIMB, AmBank and HLFG as analysts recently upgraded the banking sector to overweight on expectations of an economic recovery next year. KUALA LUMPUR: Banks underpinned the FBM KLCI’s stronger close on Thursday, as they rode on the coattails of Public Bank’s strong performance after its four-for-one bonus issue and investors piled into finance and banks. Among the top gainers were Public Bank, BIMB, CIMB, AmBank and HLFG as analysts recently upgraded the banking sector to overweight on expectations of an economic recovery next year. Also climbing higher was MBSB in active trade. At 5pm, the KLCI was up 7.86 points or 0.48% to 1,654.39. Turnover was 8.09 billion shares valued at RM4.83bil. There were 568 gainers, 644 losers and 462 counters unchanged. Public Bank rose 34 sen to RM20.20 with 8.35 million shares, HLFG 40 sen to RM18, AmBank 24 sen to RM3.50, CIMB 23 sen to RM4.28 and MBSB four sen higher to 72 sen with 115 million shares done. BIMB rose 34 sen after its proposal to transfer its listing status to its subsidiary, Bank Islam Malaysia Bhd, has received the approval from the authorities. Maybank was flat at RM8.38 while Hong Leong Bank edged up two sen to RM18.90. As for consumer stocks, heavyweight Nestle rose 50 sen to RM137.30 and Dutch Lady 26 sen to RM37.60.

US light crude oil rose 34 cents to US$45.86 and Brent 35 cents to US$49.21 as hopes of a faster demand recovery after the release of Covid-19 vaccines offset a huge rise in US crude inventories that showed supply remains ample, Reuters reported. However, Petronas Dagangan lost 32 sen to RM20.38, Petronas Gas 8 sen to RM17.26 while Petronas Chemicals shed one sen to RM7.66. Tenaga weighed on the KLCI when it fell 14 sen to RM10.50 while MISC gave up 19 sen to RM6.82. Several of Asia's bigger stock markets fell as the overnight decline on Wall Street and the exclusion of some Chinese firms from the main US stocks index dented sentiment across the region, Reuters reported. Among the key Asian markets, Japan’s Nikkei 225 fell 0.23%, Hong Kong’s Hang Seng Index lost 0.35% and Singapore’s Straits Times Index 0.48%. Chinese shares closed flat as better-than-expected bank lending data countered a decision by S&P Dow Jones Indices to remove some Chinese companies including Hikvision from its products. The blue-chip CSI300 index was unchanged at 4,940.52, while the Shanghai Composite Index ended flat at 3,373.28.
