Yesterday, The Star's StarBiz suggested eight stocks to keep on your radar, good for now as well as post-election, the latter, i.e., if you are banking on the current administration staying in power. (Yes, GE13 is just around the corner if you haven't heard or read about it. Duh!)
These are some stocks that are worth taking a bet on, StarBiz suggested. These are stocks of companies that are doing well but which also have a political flavour one way or the other which could be in the form of government contracts, shareholdings or just personalities involved in their key management or ownership.
The eight stocks are:
1. SapuraKencana Petroleum Bhd
2. Gamuda Bhd
3. CIMB Group Holdings Bhd
4. MyEG Services Bhd
5. Malaysia Marine and Heavy Engineering Holdings Bhd
6. Prestariang Bhd
7. Cypark Resources Bhd
8. Handal Resources Bhd
