Stocks on Bursa Malaysia ended last Thursday’s trading on a weak note, as heavy selling in blue-chips dampens trading on Bursa Malaysia and pushed it to finish easier, ahead of the Malaysia Day holiday on Friday. The FBM KLCI dropped 6.68 points or 0.46% to 1,430.93 after opening 5.06 points higher at 1,442.67, and week-on-week, it lost 38.19 points, or 2.6% from 1,469.12 previously. Sime Darby, which fell 47 sen to RM8, was affected by the Securities Commission’s investigation into its acquisition of a 30 per cent stake in property developer Eastern & Oriental Bhd. Losers beat gainers by 393 to 291 while 296 counters were unchanged. Turnover decreased to 729.26 million shares worth RM1.53 billion from Wednesday’s 766.82 million shares worth RM1.31 billion. The holiday-shortened week saw total market volume decreasing to 2.88 billion shares valued at RM4.88 billion from 3.5 billion shares valued at RM6.29 billion previously.
