Shares end slightly higher

The Star Malaysia - StarBiz - - Stocks -

BURSA Malaysia fin­ished slightly higher, lifted by the late buy­ing in­ter­ests in se­lected heavy­weight stocks and track­ing the re­gional bourses’ per­for­mances, deal­ers said.

At the close, the key FBM KLCI was 1.32 points higher at 1,755.32, af­ter mov­ing be­tween 1,751.62 and 1,756.17 through­out the day.

Vol­ume de­creased to 3.22 bil­lion units worth RM1.99bil from 4.33 bil­lion units val­ued at RM2.39bil on Thurs­day.

A dealer said Asian stock mar­kets were broadly higher as in­vestors pinned hopes on the re­gional economies and earn­ings prospects tak­ing the cue from strong trade data from China and con­fi­dence from up­beat global in­vestor sen­ti­ment. – Ber­nama
