Our view that STI at c.3100 offers bargain hunt opportunities on the presumption that US does not go into default stays valid. Broad market stocks were generally weak yesterday weighed down by the volatility suffered among penny stocks. Still, underlying strength was noted among some of the stocks that DBSV research highlighted recently. Dairy farm, for example, firmed from $10.11 to $10.45 post our initiation last week. Our fundamental TP is USD11.60. Another stock that looks firm is ARA that currently sits just slightly above its base at c.$1.65. Technically, we see upside to $1.74 and $1.82 while our fundamental TP is $1.89.
