Stocks on Bursa Malaysia ended lower yesterday on profit-taking activities and subdued buying support in line with regional bourses. The unveiling of the 11th Malaysia Plan to steer the country towards a developed nation by 2020 did not provide the spark for the equities market due to weaker external sentiment, as investors remained on the sidelines, adopting a wait-and-see approach. At close, the benchmark FBM KLCI fell 15.07 points or 0.83% to 1,795.04, after hovering between 1,793.34 and 1,810.71 throughout the day. Losers thumped gainers by 628 to 259, with 284 counters unchanged. Total volume was higher at 2.45 billion units worth RM2.28 billion from Wednesday’s 1.92 billion shares worth RM1.94 billion.
