    Indonesia's Big Cap Stocks in Remainder 2017; Buy, Hold or Sell?

    Riska Afriani, analyst at OSO Sekuritas, believes Indonesia's big cap stocks have limited room to advance in the remainder of 2017 because they have already shown significant growth so far in 2017 (in line with the rising benchmark Jakarta Composite Index that touched a record high in July 2017). However, some big caps may still show some more marked movement than others.

    Solid Corporate Earnings of Indonesia's Large Cap Stocks in Q1-2017

However, some stocks have become expensive particularly after the recent strong performance of Indonesian stocks.

  • Indonesian Rupiah Exchange Rate Today: Extending Depreciating Trend

    On Tuesday (26/11), Bank Indonesia's mid rate depreciated 0.37 percent to IDR 11,765 per US dollar, which is the lowest level the currency has touched since March 2009. Main reason for today's decline is the government's US dollar-denominated bond auction yesterday (25/11) that fell USD $450 million short of its target. The bond issuance was negatively impacted by investors' concern about the looming scaling back of the Federal Reserve's quantitative easing program as US economic data improve.

  • Fed Outcome and Mixed Corporate Earnings Reports Cause Falling Index

    Despite foreign investors recording a net buy on the Jakarta Composite Index on Thursday (31/10), a depreciating rupiah as well as falling stock indices across Asia made investors concerned. Thus, the benchmark index of Indonesia followed the pace of other Asian indices and ended on 4,510.63 points (a 1.40 percent fall). The outcome of the Federal Reserve's FOMC meeting did not support the rupiah. On the contrary, the rupiah fell after the Fed stated to continue quantitative easing but that the tapering may start sooner than expected.

  • Amid Falling Asian Indices, Jakarta Composite Index (IHSG) Rises 0.75%

    Amid falling Asian stock indices, Indonesia's benchmark stock index (the IHSG or Jakarta Composite Index) managed to gain 33.8 points to 4,546.50 (+0.75 percent) on Wednesday (23/10).

  • Despite Rising Asian Stock Indices, Indonesia's IHSG Falls 0.45 Percent

    Although most Asian stock indices went up on Wednesday (10 April 2013), the Indonesia Stock Exchange (IHSG) could not cling on to their movement.

Foreign market participants recorded a net sell, particularly Indonesia's blue chip stocks, which caused the index to end at 4,877.48, a 0.45 percent fall.
