Bursa Health Care index falls the most as glove shares drop to lowest in over a year

KUALA LUMPUR (Sept 9): Bursa Malaysia's Health Care index closed down the most in percentage terms today compared to other indices partly due to rubber glove manufacturers' share prices dropping to the lowest in over a year on a weaker profit outlook against global Covid-19 vaccination progress.

At 5pm, Top Glove Corp Bhd's share price ended down 18 sen or 5.03% at RM3.40 while Hartalega Holdings Bhd dropped 26 sen or 3.89% to RM6.42. Supermax Corp Bhd declined 13 sen or 4.41% to RM2.82 while Kossan Rubber Industries Bhd fell nine sen or 3.03% to RM2.88.

The financial service sector tops the list with a quarterly net profit of RM7.3b, followed by healthcare (RM6.8b) and plantation (RM2.4b)

CORPORATE earnings in the second quarter of the calendar year 2021 (2QCY21) remained on a positive growth trajectory despite the imposition of the Movement Control Order (MCO) 3.0.

MIDF Research said most of the sectors recorded improved total earnings in 2QCY21 compared to both the preceding quarter and the corresponding period last year.
