We have been taking a very contrarian approach so far with regards to our investments, especially in Bursa Malaysia Berhad and IOI Corporation Berhad. Research houses have been calling for a sell on these stocks and naturally the stock prices have reacted by trending downwards. We have been ignoring these calls and these calls are basically made on 12 months basis and have been very market-based. Check out a coming article on a recent analysis of a research house buy and sell call on IOI.
