Market valuations may be inexpensive but stay defensive: RHB

SINGAPORE (Jan 2): RHB Research prefers to stay selective and defensive amid growth uncertainties in 2019.

The Straits Times Index (STI), down 12% in USD terms, could remain under pressure this year amid slowing GDP growth and an uncertain trade outlook due to China-US tensions.

In a Wednesday report, analyst Shekhar Jaiswal says, “While 12.6x forward P/E and 4.2% dividend yield make the STI’s valuations look compelling, we recommend investors stay selective and focus on buying stocks offering stable earnings, strong balance sheets, and sustainable dividends.”
