Today's reports

Take profit and wait

Market outlook
We expect the SET to slip from profit taking as we do not see anything to lift. Trump told the Economic Club of New York that China wants to make a deal but did not give details nor did he say he would delay European auto tariffs. Institutional investors were still net sellers in the SET. We see support at 1,620 and if the SET breaks the support, downward reversion will be firmed. Upside is limited at 1,632 and 1,637.
Market strategy
Selective buy in stocks with good earnings outlook and individual catalysts: AMATA, CPF, MINT, SAWAD, TRUE. Today’s picks: BLA, CPALL.
