August last month of equity buying spree as US election looms: Market analyst

first_imgThe IDX reported that publicly listed companies’ net profit dipped early this year. In the first quarter, the aggregate net profit declined 27.3 percent year-on-year (yoy) to Rp 72.77 trillion (US$5.01 billion), with only a few sectors booking growth. Adrianus noted that, in the second quarter, most companies’ earnings were below expectations, despite him already expecting a poor performance. Going forward, he recommended that investors take different approaches in the third and fourth quarters.“In the third quarter, we will stick to defensive names, those with resilient earnings profiles and huge dividends that make their valuation quite premium in comparison to the others,” the analyst said. Read also: Domestic investors dominate stock market amid pandemicHe explained that consumer stocks, telecommunication and tower players were preferred for their earnings feasibility, while also adding commodity stocks that trade nickel and gold to his list of preferred stocks. “Going into the fourth quarter, the story is reversed. Those who suffer in the third or second quarter, whose performance was bad, should create a low-base performance for a rebound,” he said. He went on to say that these stocks that suffered during previous quarters would most likely recover significantly when market uncertainties passes, hence, suggesting investors look into property and construction stocks as well as banks that had suffered from loan restructuring in previous quarters.Topics : Investors should gear up for upcoming market uncertainty nearing the United States presidential election, an equity analyst has said, suggesting that August would be the last month for now to go on a buying spree. “August may be the only month we can happily trade [this year]. After that, we suggest investors go defensive to survive the upcoming turmoil,” Sucor Sekuritas head of research Adrianus Bias said in a discussion with The Jakarta Post on Tuesday. Read also: Pharma stocks surge as market brims with vaccine optimism “And then, probably in the fourth quarter – around November, December – we can start to actively trade again after the dust settles,” he said, adding that there would likely be adjustment in the market as investors waited on the election winner’s policy announcement. Adrianus noted that with the forthcoming ambivalence in the market, he projected that the benchmark Jakarta Composite Index (JCI) would not return to the level of 6,000 points or even break above 5,500 points this year.Additionally, the lower-than-expected earnings performance from companies listed on the Indonesian Stock Exchange (IDX) also contributed to the index inability to recover to its prepandemic level this year, he said. The JCI is down 17.68 percent so far this year after closing at 6,299.54 on the last day of 2019. Following the market rout in March, the index recorded an upward rally that sustained until July. Since the beginning of August, the JCI has gained around 1.41 percent.last_img read more

Kaymer surges ahead at Pinehurst

first_imgA month after winning golf’s so-called unofficial ‘fifth major’, Ryder Cup hero Martin Kaymer charged into the lead of one of the real things in the US Open. Sweden’s Henrik Stenson, who can overtake Adam Scott as world number one by claiming his first major title on Sunday, was among a 10-strong group on one under as the early starters in particular made the most of more receptive greens than had been expected. Six-time runner-up Phil Mickelson, looking to become only the sixth player to win all four majors, was another shot back on level par alongside English trio Ian Poulter, Paul Casey and Danny Willett and Welshman Jamie Donaldson. Sheffield amateur Matt Fitzpatrick briefly held a share of the lead after starting with two birdies in his first three holes, the 19-year-old eventually signing for a 71 – one better than playing partner and defending champion Justin Rose. Former champion Rory McIlroy was alongside Fitzpatrick on one over after struggling to get the pace of the greens. McDowell admitted the early starters had enjoyed the luck of the draw, adding: “I spent the last few days just preparing myself mentally for the challenge, knowing that this golf course wasn’t going to give much and it was only going to take. I really felt like I got my head in the right place the last few days. “It wasn’t my best ball-striking display, but you don’t have to strike it amazing around here – you just have to position the ball correctly at all times, and with a tiny bit more moisture this morning we got lucky. “In practice the golf course seemed to be very firm, kind of a weekend set-up. I guess the USGA were really relying on some rain last night, which didn’t come. I’m assuming they put some water on this place this morning and we were able to take advantage of that a little bit early on, and actually think about getting at some of those flags.” Speaking about the Open Championship returning to Portrush in 2019 – it was last staged there in 1951 – McDowell added: “That’s extremely exciting. I’ve been kind of hesitant to comment because I really didn’t want to take anything away from the official announcement (the R&A are holding a press conference in Portrush on Monday). “I’m very proud of where I grew up. I’m very proud of the tradition and history there and to bring an Open Championship back to Northern Ireland is very special. It speaks volumes about how far the country has come. “It’s going to be a very special thing for Northern Ireland and Ireland in general. I just hope I’m exempt and playing well. It’s been a dream of mine as a kid. I’ve spent many an hour out there as a kid and dreaming of playing major championships. To have a major championship come to Portrush, (especially) the Open Championship is special stuff. “It’s the result of a lot of gentle ribbing in the direction of Mr Dawson (R&A chief executive Peter Dawson) the last four or five years from myself and (Rory) McIlroy and (Darren) Clarke. Nice to see the fruits of our labour, I suppose.” And the man who ensured Europe would retain the Ryder Cup after the ‘Miracle at Medinah’ in 2012 reproduced the form he displayed at Sawgrass on Thursday, beating the previous lowest score in a US Open at Pinehurst of 66 by Sweden’s Peter Hedblom in 2005. “When you win the Players it’s pretty much as if you have won a major, the way the field is,” said Kaymer, who equalled the course record with an opening 63 at Sawgrass. “I needed a win, whether it was the Players or a PGA Tour event for my confidence, to feel it’s worth it for all the hard work I have put in over the last couple of years. “That was a nice, huge win and, coming into the US Open and the next few weeks with big events, it’s nice if you’ve just won before. I’m very happy. “I was asked before what score I would take at the end of the week and I said eight over, so hopefully that’s not going to happen now. The course played more difficult on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday – they must have put more water on the greens last night. “I watched some golf in the morning and thought it was more playable and even in the afternoon we could stop the ball on the greens. It’s an exceptional score and very nice to lead the tournament but I was very surprised the course played fairly soft. “I try to win as many majors in my career as possible. I won one so far, I put myself so far in a good position here, but we have three rounds to go. There’s so much golf to play and no-one should expected me to shoot another 65.” McDowell had earlier celebrated confirmation of the Open’s return to his home course of Portrush by firing an eagle, one birdie and one bogey to shoot 68 – his lowest opening round in a US Open. Kaymer carded six birdies and one bogey to record a superb five-under-par 65 at Pinehurst, claiming a three-shot lead over former champion Graeme McDowell, Zimbabwe’s Brendon de Jonge and American duo Kevin Na and Fran Quinn. The 29-year-old German, who won the US PGA in August 2010 and became world number one for eight weeks the following February, became just the fourth European to win the Players Championship in 41 years last month.

Fourth person indicted in 2017 killing of Boca Raton MMA fighter

first_imgA fourth person has been indicted in the 2017 murder of a local MMA fighter.Aaron Rajman, reportedly known as the only local Orthodox Jewish MMA fighter, was shot and killed during a home invasion in July of 2013.On Thursday, a grand jury indicted Cameron Burgess-Clark on charges of first-degree murder and armed home invasion.He was booked into the Palm Beach County Jail and is being held without bond following a hearing Wednesday morning.It is unclear at this time what role the 25-year-old Riviera Beach man is alleged to have played in the fatal shooting of Rajman.In August of 2017, three suspects, including a 16-year-old old girl, were indicted on charges of first-degree murder and armed home invasion in connection to Rajman’s death.The suspects, Summer Church, Jace Swinton, and Roberto Ortizstole, reportedly broke into Rajman’s Boca Raton home and stole multiple items, including swords, marijuana, a scale, narcotics, and money.Rajman was fatally shot while the robbery was in progress after engaging in a physical confrontation with several men who entered his home around 10:30 p.m, according to PBSO.In July of this year, Church, who was 16 at the time of the killing, and Swinton, who was 18, plead guilty to second-degree murder and were sentenced to 10 years in prison and another ten years of probation.A trial has not yet been set for the case against Ortiz, who was 18 at the time of Rajman’s death.last_img read more

Barbados Pride stay on top with nervous win

first_imgBARBADOS Pride secured a one-wicket win in a low-scoring Group B clash against Jamaica at the Kensington Oval, to keep their unbeaten streak intact in the Regional Super50 competition so far.After Jamaica Scorpions were bowled out for 190, Pride lost half their side for 83, before recovering through late contributions and eventually limping past the finish line with two overs to spare.They rode on a vital 40 from Shane Dowrich who came out with the score on 62 for 4; by the time he fell, caught behind in the 38th over, Barbados were eight down and still needed 48. The ninth-wicket partnership between Ashley Nurse and Kemar Roach knocked off 42 of those runs, with Nurse calmly seeing the side to the win and finishing on 21 not out.Jamaica’s new-ball duo of Jerome Taylor and Reynard Leveridge took five wickets between them, while Nikita Miller impressed with 1 for 22 in 10 overs.When Scorpions batted, after winning the toss, they were in an early wobble at 27 for 3. Jermaine Blackwood held up his end for 40, but his wicket left the side at 97 for 6.They recovered through a seventh-wicket partnership of 77 between Rovman Powell who top-scored with 74 and Damion Jacobs who struck 31. Powell’s knock, which came at a strike rate of 93.67, included three fours and six sixes.He was the eighth man to be dismissed, seven balls before Scorpions were all out.

If things aren’t quite going according to their plan they can equally use Cash Out and limit their losses,” Adegbile said.“These Cash Out offers will be available for all sports and betting options types. Singles and accumulator bets are also eligible for Cash Out and it will be available online, on mobiles and customers can still Cash Out in-shop. Cash Out offers cut across Pre-Game and Live Games, with no qualifying odds conditions attached.Adegbile also explained how the new innovation would benefit punters. “Let’s assume that a punter makes a five-team accumulator bet of N500 for the weekend’s football matches: two Premier League games on Saturday, two La Liga games on Sunday and one Bundesliga game on Monday night. If all five selections win, I stand to win N50,000.“If the first two selections are successful and the Sunday bets also come in, the punter is left with his Monday night selection. If the team the punter backed takes an early 1-0 lead in the game, then a few minutes later, they concede a penalty, have their goalkeeper sent off as a result and the opposition team converts the penalty to level  1-1.“With the game poised all square, he is now at a significant disadvantage. Now would be a great time for the punter to consider cashing out his bet. By doing this, he will be giving himself a return on the bet, whereas if he leaves the bet to run to a natural conclusion, the odds are that his Monday night selection might lose and he will be left with nothing.”last_img read more
