FBM KLCI 30 Index Components
Is December good time to invest in stock market? That’s the question that I ask myself lately. I did not buy any stock after selling Tanjong plc stock last month. And plan to buy back it again now. But when is the question. Therefore, I did some research on the previous years’ performance on the month of December. Let’s see the history speak for itself. Anyway, past historical record does not mean that it will perform as same as before. Stock market is not predictable. But you can know it better by studying more.

Woo… There are lot of blue colour ~ gain. I have my answer now. The stock market for December 2009 will likely go up.
Tanjong Plc is one of the 30 FBM KLCI stocks. It is independent power producer and Malaysian number forecasting operator (lottery). It is a good defensive stock because of its attractive 6.28% dividend yield (based on RM14.30 market price). With current fixed deposit rate of 2.5% per annual, Tanjong Plc is good to invest due to its good track of historical dividend payout.
Tanjong Plc performance since June 2009
I started to study the research done by OSK Research, Standard & Poor’s (S&P) Equity Research by Public Bank and Maybank Investment Bank. The 12-month target prices given by these research firms are about the same RM18.60, RM17.00 and RM17.60. I checked back the previous recommended target price. OSK Research gave a very aggressive price that cannot be reached. S&P is still okay to follow but failed to reach too. Why? It is all because of other factors like economy, politics. Therefore, we should only use it as guidance. Study and make your own decision.
What price should we sell? Nope. I don’t sell attractive dividend yield stock. We should keep it unless the company is not performing anymore. The question we should ask… What price should I buy? Buy at the discounted price during economy downturn. Normally, people stay away from stock market. But that’s the best time to buy these high dividend yield stocks actually.
I was wondering about the direction of stock market last month. I bought a defensive stock to keep as the market is not clear that time. However, everybody like the earning report from big US company like Intel and Goldman Sachs. They did well in last quarter. Intel share price gained more than 5% after earning announced. Same go to the 3 big indexes – Dow, NASDAQ and S&P, up more than 3%.

FBM KLCI re-bounced at March 2009. It is a big re-bounced. Can it continue to the rally? It is Q2 earning report season. And most of the companies performed well. So the stock will go up, right? In my opinion, YES!!! The stock market should be going up for the next few weeks. Anyway, I am not going to buy any stock now. But looking for the timing to sell some of my ‘goreng’ stocks.
Stock market — Down == buy, Up == sell.
