Maybank’s share price performance in 2015

 

Maybank’s share price movement for the first quarter of 2015 lagged both the FTSE Bursa Malaysia Kuala Lumpur Composite Index (FBM KLCI) and the Bursa Malaysia Finance Index (BM Finance Index), raising 1.74% compared to a gain of 3.95% and 3.38% for the FBM KLCI and BM Finance Index respectively due to concern in the delay of debt repayment by 1MDB, which was eventually repaid in February.

The share price rose to a year high of RM9.55 on 7 and 8 April while the FBM KLCI and BM Finance Index both hit their year high on 21 April at 1,862.80 and 16,530.88 respectively. However, the global equities selldown, triggered by prolonged crude oil price weakness and the weakening Ringgit, caused the market to decline in the second quarter with Maybank losing 2.04% against sharper declines by the FBM KLCI and BM Finance Index at 6.78% and 4.94% respectively.

The third quarter saw an even sharper market decline with losses of 6.35%, 5.02% and 9.84% for Maybank, the FBM KLCI and the BM Finance Index respectively due to similar sentiment seen in 2Q coupled with uncertainty over the start of US Federal Reserve’s interest rate hike. Maybank’s share price was at RM8.19 when the market fell to the year low on 24 August with the FBM KLCI at 1,532.14 and the BM Finance Index at 13,675.61, down 13.01% and 12.92% from the end of 2014.

The market recovered slightly in the fourth quarter, with the FBM KLCI and BM Finance Index rising 4.41% and 1.76% respectively but Maybank’s share price remained sluggish, declining to its year low of RM8.18 on 18 November and 15 December, down 10.80% from the end of 2014, and traded sideways within the RM8.20 to RM8.50 in the final two months of the year. Maybank closed the year at RM8.40, which was 8.40% lower than the previous year while the FBM KLCI and BM Finance Index declined 3.90% and 9.84% respectively.

Maybank’s share price performance in 2014
  • Maybank’s share price movement for the first two quarters of 2014 was in line with the FTSE Bursa Malaysia Kuala Lumpur Composite Index (FBM KLCI) and the Bursa Malaysia Finance Index (BM Finance Index), declining 2.62% in the first quarter followed a 1.55% gain in the second quarter.
  • However, after the FBM KLCI hit its all-time high of 1,892.6 on 8 July, it began to decline on the back of falling global oil prices. Maybank’s share price held up for another two months to hit its peak of the year at RM10.16 on 4 September before it also succumbed to concerns over softer corporate earnings, lower ringgit, falling oil prices and weak economic outlook given Malaysia is an oil exporting country. This in turn weakened external sentiment and raised on-going concerns of Malaysia’s fiscal challenges and vulnerability to foreign fund outflows.
  • Although for the third quarter Maybank still managed to record a 1.32% gain, the downtrend that began in September accelerated in the fourth quarter of the year as oil prices continued to plunge to below USD60. On 16 December 2014, Maybank’s share price, FBM KLCI Index and the KL Financial Index all hit their 52-week low of RM8.29, 1,673.94 points and 14,857.75 points before rebounding at the year end to close at RM9.17, 1,761.25 points and 15,704.35 points respectively.
  • At the close of 2014, Maybank’s share price was 7.7% lower than at the end of last year while the FBM KLCI and BM Financial Index also recorded a losses of 5.7% and 7.4% respectively.
