RESEARCH REPORT

Technical Analysis: S&P 500 Index – Monthly recession tracker
Analyst: Jeremy Ng
– None of our recession indicators are flashing red
– Broad-based equity market should continue to stair-step higher, with the 20
and 60 day moving average acting as the springboard
– Despite the recent flattening of the yield curve, the 2s10s spread still suggests
another 6 – 8 more months of further flattening before the yield curve inverts
– General equity market should continue to grow for another 6 – 8 more
months

Micro-Mechanics (Holdings) Ltd – Record quarter but a deceleration in momentum
Recommendation: Accumulate (Downgrade), Last Close Price: $2.39
Target Price: S$2.50, Analyst: Paul Chew
– 2Q18 revenue and PATMI were below expectation. We are reducing our
earnings forecast by 7% for FY18e.
– The weak USD partly hurt top-line momentum in the 2Q18.
– As our target price is unchanged at S$2.50 and the share price is up 18% since
our last report, we are downgrading our recommendation to ACCUMULATE.


TECHNICAL PULSE

Hang Seng Index – Daily timeframe – Bearish
– The bearish follow through on 30/01/18 brought the RSI back below the 70
overbought region suggesting the start of the mean reversion (correction).
– The 33,484 points formed on 29/01/18 could be the near-term top for now
where price enters into a period of correction.
