“Things are very fluid right now.”Irwanti, whose firm manages Rp 61.1 trillion (US$4.37 billion) in assets in Indonesia, estimates that in the best-case scenario, the JCI would drop 15 percent this year based on projections on earnings per share (EPS) growth coupled with government policy support.This compares with Mandiri Sekuritas’ forecast of a 12 percent JCI drop to 5,540 at the end of the year, said head of equity research Adrian Joezer during a Mandiri Economic Outlook online forum.“With the gradual easing of large-scale social restrictions [PSBB] starting this month, we expect the JCI to reach our forecast as it will help publicly listed companies recover from the impact of the pandemic,” Adrian said. According to market players’ projections, the benchmark Jakarta Composite Index (JCI) will likely end the year at between 5,000 and 5,500, a wide range that shows how difficult it has been to predict market movements as pandemic-related risks will likely continue to create volatility.Schroders Indonesia investment director Irwanti said stock price growth in both global and domestic markets would rely on the reopening of economies and development of vaccines. Meanwhile, the number of COVID-19 cases have recently been ignored by the market, she added.“It is very difficult to forecast anything at the moment,” Irwanti said during The Jakarta Post’s webinar Jakpost Up Close: Investing in Stocks: Best Strategies in Volatile Times. The brokerage firm, however, could also further revise its projection depending on how market players would respond to government policies and the latest development of COVID-19 in Indonesia, including on how the economy would recover.The JCI has lost 21.5 percent of its value so far this year following a global stock market crash in March caused by investors’ concern over the pandemic’s impacts on the global economy. The current level is already recovering from the year’s low of 3,937, a 37 percent drop from the end of last year. Batavia Prosperindo Aset Manajemen (BPAM), which manages Rp 44.8 trillion in funds, projects the JCI to close the year at between 5,000 and 5,300, representing a fall of 15 to 20 percent from last year’s end point of 6,299.“We are going to see continuous volatility, so expect that, get used to that. Volatility is not something you should be fearful of. It should be seen as an opportunity especially for individual investors to do dollar cost averaging,” BPAM president director Lilis Setiadi said in the Post’s webinar.Dollar-cost averaging refers to an investment strategy in which investors try to reduce the impact of market volatility by dividing their investments into multiple smaller purchases, with regular intervals in between each purchase.Prudential Indonesia chief investment officer Novi Imelda said in a separate livestreamed press conference that short-term stocks’ volatility would be inevitable, but they would rebound accordingly as the economy recovered. “As long as the economy grows, our index will grow,” Eastspring Investments Indonesia chief investment officer Ari Pitojo said at the press conference. Ari refrained from making a projection of when a rebound to normal levels would occur but noted that market consensus said it would take one and a half to two years’ time. The government had projected a baseline economic growth of 2.3 percent this year and a 0.4 percent contraction under a worst-case scenario due to the pandemic.Looking at the JCI historical chart, Bank Commonwealth head of wealth management and premier banking Ivan Jaya said in a separate webinar that in the several past bear markets, it took the JCI 11 to 18 months to recover to its previous highest level. Mirae Asset Sekuritas head of research Hariyanto Wijaya projected the Indonesia Stock Exchange’s main gauge to reach 5,180 by the end of 2020 in its best-case scenario. Even in the best-case scenario, under which vaccines could be produced for the mass market this year and crude palm oil prices (CPO) rise, the index could reach 5,830 at the end of the year, still reflecting a 7.4 percent drop from last year.Mirae’s worst or bear-case scenario for the JCI is a fall to 4,160 by the end of the year, reflecting a wide range of predictions that gives room for price volatility.“This could happen if a second wave of the coronavirus outbreak occurs, the United States enters a recession in 2020 and CPO prices collapse,” he said during the Post’s webinar.

INTRO: Three privately-promoted light metro lines are under construction to augment Malaysian Railways’ electrified commuter rail networkIN EXACTLY ONE YEAR, the Malaysian capital Kuala Lumpur will host the 1998 Commonwealth Games, at a new stadium taking shape south of the city. The start of the games on September 14 1998 has set a tight target for completion of several rail projects, although it seems certain that not all will be ready in time.The games venue will primarly be served by a southern extension of the STAR light rail network (LRT1), whose initial line began revenue operations on December 16 1996. The games village will be linked to the city centre by LRT1 and a short section of the PRT elevated monorail (below).KL’s first experience with modern rail-based public transport came in 1995 with the launch of KTM Berhad’s Komuter suburban services. The two main routes in the X-shaped network overlap to provide a more intensive service through the central area. Three privately-promoted systems have now been authorised: the STAR light rail line (RG 11.95 p759), the Putra automated light metro (DM 96 p48), and the Peoplemover Rapid Transit elevated monorail. All are due to be open by 2000, and the promoters are working with KTM to create an integrated network for the capital.Work is also expected to get under way soon on the long-planned 58 km Express Rail Link connecting Kuala Lumpur with the new international airport taking shape at Serpang. This will also serve the new government offices and administrative centre at Putra Jaya, and will terminate at the Central station in the Brickfields development. The rail link is being promoted by a consortium of Tabung Haji Technologies, YTL Corp and Abrar Group, which has a 60-year concession from the government. The standard-gauge line is to be electrified at 25 kV, and worked by a derivative of the German ICE trainsets.STAR shines brightestThe first of the three metro projects to get under way was the light rail concession awarded to Sistem Transit Aliran Ringgan in December 1992. STAR is a joint venture of local entrepreneurs with Taylor Woodrow of Great Britain and AEG (now Adtranz) of Germany, which formed the Kuala Lumpur Transit Group to build the line.As conceived in 1990, STAR is being built in three sections: the initial Phase I opened in December 1996, and two extensions forming Phase II. Of these, the branch south to the Komplex Sukan Negara has top priority, followed by the northern extension to Sentul Timur. The franchise agreement for Phase II was signed on June 26 1995, followed by the award of a 1·6bn ringgit construction contract to KLTG on July 17. Phase I starts from the eastern suburb of Ampang, where the depot, workshops and administration building are located, and runs 12 km to Sultan Ismail. There are 13 stations, of which nine are located on the ground level ex-railway alignment and four on the new elevated section through the city centre.The 11·3 km southern branch leaves the first line at Chan Sow Lin and follows the former railway alignment to meet the KTM main line, which it parallels for some distance. It then flies over the main line and heads west to reach the stadium and Games village. There will be 8 stations, and 4·5 km of elevated alignment. The branch is due to open to revenue operations on July 1 1998.The 3·2 km northern extension scheduled to open on January 1 1999 will be entirely elevated, with four stations. From Sultan Ismail, the line will follow Sungai Gombak to Jalan Tun Razak and Bandar Baru Sentul. It will serve the rapidly-developing area around the Putra World Trade Centre, and the KTM workshops site at Sentul Raya which is to be redeveloped. STAR is operated by two-section articulated LRVs, supplied by Walkers of Australia with GTO chopper traction equipment from Adtranz. Phase I uses 34 D vehicles with a driving cab at one end; they work back-to-back in pairs. A further 26 D vehicles are being supplied for Phase II, along with 30 non-driving M cars to allow the operation of three-unit trains. Each D car can carry 56 seated and 340 standing passengers, while the M cars have 60 seats and room for 348 standees. oCAPTION: STAR’s articulated LRVs have been running on the elevated tracks through the city centre in revenue service since December 1996 CAPTION: The Putra automated light metro (LRT2) will be operated by 70 ALRT2 linear-motored trainsets supplied by Bombardier of CanadaLinear city monorail to serve the Golden TriangleOn October 29 1996 the Malaysian government signed a 30-year concession for construction, operation and maintenance of a 16 km urban monorail costed at 1·9bn ringgit. Known as the Peoplemover Rapid Transit, the line is to be built by KL PRT Sdn Berhad, owned 63% by KL Linear City Sdn Bhd and 37% by KL Monorail Concessionaire Sdn Bhd.The elevated line will serve 20 stations, including a short branch to the Central station development at Brickfields. Interchanges will be provided with the STAR light rail network, the Putra automated light metro, and KTM Berhad’s Komuter suburban network.PRT is to be built in two phases, of approximately 9 and 7 km. Phase I will start from the LRT1 interchange and Pekeliling bus terminal at Jalan Tun Razak in the north, and head south via Jalan Tuanku Abdul Rahman to enter the so-called ’Golden Triangle’ incorporating Kuala Lumpur’s central business, hotel and shopping districts. At Tun Sambathan the route will swing west to KL Central. This phase will have 12 stations, and is due to be completed before the end of 1999.Phase II will diverge at Tun Sambathan to run alongside the 2·4 km GigaWorld development at Brickfields, and then head south along the populous Old Klang Road corridor to Kampung Pasir. This phase is due to be opened early in 2000, after which the Central station spur will be run as a branch shuttle. Construction began in December, with work concentrated on a short section of Phase I, with four stations and an interchange to LRT1; this will give access to the Golden Triangle for visitors to the 1998 Commonwealth Games.PRT will use Japanese straddle-beam monorail technology, based on the Series 1000 cars used on the Tokyo – Haneda Airport line. Rubber-tyred cars will run on a narrow concrete guideway. Two tracks formed from precast concrete haunched guideway beams will be supported on columns with crossheads at 30m centres. Traction power at 1·5 kV DC will be provided by side-contact pantographs. Semi-automatic operation is envisaged, with trains running at 2min headways during peak time. Peak design capacity is 18000 passengers/h in each direction.Hitachi is supplying an initial fleet of 14 four-car trainsets, but more will follow as demand grows. Each air-conditioned set will be 63·5m long and weigh 102 tonnes; it will accommodate up to 630 passengers, of whom 168 will be seated. Top speed will be 80 km/h, giving end-to-end journey times of 37min for Phase I and 58min for the whole line. Guideway engineering is the responsibility of TY Lin (SEA), with De Lew (Malaysia) as Project Manager, Lea & Elliott as System Consultant, and The MVA Consultancy as Traffic Consultant. Civil works are being undertaken by IJM-Binmaju Sdn Bhd, with Toyo Engineering Corp responsible for electrical and mechanical installation. Adtranz is providing the fixed-block signalling and ATP. Itochu Corp will provide support for the operations and maintenance, in association with Tokyo Monorail Co and Hitachi Ltd. oCAPTION: Piling for the first phase of the KL Monorail elevated guideway is under way along the centre of streets through the Bukit Bintang shopping district
Look Home Staging styled 94 Berry Street at Sherwood, which is on the market with Place New FarmPlanning to sell your family home? You had better box up any emotional baggage. Sure, your collection of travel curios may bring back fond memories, and that quirky family photograph may prompt a chuckle, but they can be a huge turn-off for potential buyers.“The point of staging a house for sale is to encourage buyers to imagine themselves living in the home, creating an immediate emotional connection with the property,” Laura Sinclair of Place Graceville said. “This is difficult to achieve when the house is still filled with personal items from the current owners.”Ms Sinclair said there were six things to always consider when preparing a property.“The No. 1 rule of staging a house for sale is to use a minimalist approach. Clutter is distracting and makes spaces feel smaller, by decluttering you invite buyers to view a functional space, rather than mess,” she said.Lighting is also an important factor and can even impact the mood of a potential buyer. Ms Sinclair said ensure there is plenty of natural light flowing in, and when that’s not possible, switch every available light on.As for street appeal, Ms Sinclair said a good first impression could make a buyer fall in love with a property before they even stepped through the front door.

Ms Fenton-Smith, who has styled many homes for sale, said that owners who had lived in the property for a long time often could see the negatives that would be clearly visible to people visiting for the first time. She said home styling was no longer just used to promote a high-end sale.“Many of the properties we style are low-mid range houses, townhouses and units,” Ms Fenton-Smith said. “Statistics show that styled properties sell faster and for a higher price.”
Cruise line Mystic Cruises, a brand of Portuguese financial holding Mystic Invest, has ordered two polar expedition vessels from compatriot West Sea shipyard.The vessels are worth EUR 140 million (USD 158.4 million), according to Mystic Invest.The newbuilds — to be named World Voyager and World Navigator — are part of the company’s Ice Class, Explorer range ships and are slated for delivery in 2020 and 2021.With a reinforced hull designed to navigate polar waters, of up to one meter of ice density, each of the ships will be able to accommodate 200 passengers and 110 crew members.Sustainability and ecological safety is also a concern in the design of these expedition cruise ships.“To reduce our impact, we worked with Rolls-Royce to integrate … hybrid propulsion system that … reduces fuel consumption and CO2 emissions, as well as a dynamic positioning system that allows us to avoid using anchors, thereby protecting the maritime environment,” Mário Ferreira, CEO of Mystic Cruises, said.The two new ships will join the World Explorer, a 9,300-ton vessel currently under construction at the abovementioned yard. Scheduled to start operations in April 2019, World Explorer will be chartered out to Nicko Cruises and Quark Expeditions.Image Courtesy: Mystic Cruises“Given the current market demand, we believed it important to anticipate our expansion project for Mystic Cruises by a few years,” Ferreira continued.“We have chartered the entire inventory on Antarctica cruises aboard the World Explorer until 2023, and are fully booked on the majority of our other 2019 departures. The cruises to the Arctic, Norwegian Fjords, Greenland and Baltic are a huge success on the German market, where Mystic Cruises’ sister company, Nicko Cruises, operates World Explorer voyages. With this positive scenario, it was essential to move forward with the construction of more ships, these being the firsts of a fleet of 10 Ocean vessels that we intend to develop and build,” Ferreira explained.
The operations resulted in the arrest of24 suspects and the filing of 25 cases in court. BACOLOD City – Various drug enforcement teams under the Negros Occidental PoliceProvincial Office (NOCPPO) have seized P2.798 million worth of suspected shabuin the past week. He added that Binalbagan is not apriority target area for anti-drug operations, yet a large volume of shabu hasbeen recovered in the southern Negros town. On Jan. 10, suspect Henelou Pacino, 26,yielded P105,000 in shabu during a buy-bust in Barangay 3, Silay City. Six persons, including two minors,possessing P120,000 worth of shabu were arrested in Barangay 5, San Carlos Cityon January 6. “We are concentrating on Silay City,Talisay City, Hinigaran, Kabankalan City, San Carlos City, and Calatrava. Thismeans that they counter what we do. If we concentrate on big cities andmunicipalities, they go to small towns,” Baleros said. NOCPPO director Colonel Romeo Baleros saidthe illegal drugs recovered reached 279.82 grams in 12 operations from Jan. 6to 12. “We are exerting collective efforts toreally paralyze the operation of illegal drugs syndicate in the island. Still,since this is a lucrative, illegal business, we cannot just stop them,” Balerossaid in a press conference. However, drug transactions innon-priority areas are still intercepted by the police as a result of intensiveintelligence operations, he added. Antidrug operatives inspect these sachets of suspected in a sting operation in Barangay 5, San Carlos City, Negros Occidental. The Negros Occidental Police Provincial Office sized a total of P2.798 million worth of suspected shabu in the past week. PDEA REGION 6 Baleros said that large volume of drugsusually arrives during festivals, and it is possible that the shabu seized inBinalbagan could be intended for nearby Kabankalan City, which celebrates theSinulog de Kabankalan from Jan. 10 to 16. The biggest haul was 250 grams with anestimated street value of P2.5 million seized from four men arrested during apension house buy-bust in Binalbagan town at dawn on Sunday.

Swift’s Team Sky team-mate Lars Petter Nordhaug emerged from the chaos to win the first stage of the inaugural Tour de Yorkshire in front of huge crowds on the Scarborough seafront, but behind him several others were picking up the pieces. Almost a year on from the county hosting the Grand Depart of the Tour de France, the 174km stage again saw thousands lining the roads but the day’s racing was defined by a huge crash after a brief shower created a slippery descent as the peloton approached Grosmont, high in the North Yorkshire Moors. There was a warning when Topsport Vlaanderen-Baloise’s Tim Declercq, one of two riders in a breakaway, went straight on at a corner and landed in a hedge before remounting. But with no race radio, the peloton approached unaware and chaos followed as several riders hit the deck, led by Swift and his team-mate Ian Boswell. “It was just really slippy,” said Swift’s team-mate Philip Deignan. “Normally the roads here are quite abrasive but that was real shiny. It just came on really quickly, the shower, just as we were coming in and it’s a 20 per cent descent so it was probably the worst moment for it to happen.” As Swift headed off to hospital, his remaining team-mates tried to regroup amid the confusion and Deignan and Nordhaug managed to get themselves into a five-man break which got away on the final climb of the day out of Robin Hood’s Bay. It came down to a sprint on the seafront, with Nordhaug beating Europcar’s Thomas Voeckler and Stephane Rossetto of Cofidis. “It’s great to take the victory,” the Norwegian said. “With all the spectators here it’s massive and I feel like I’m riding at home riding for Sky. This is really great. “The team were so strong today, riding all day to make it hard. We were riding for Ben Swift but he crashed pretty hard which is a shame. Then I had to try and do something.” After time bonuses were applied, Nordhaug led the general classification by four seconds from Voeckler. Deignan finished fifth to sit 10 seconds down. “This is cycling, the highs and lows,” said Team Sky sporting director Rod Ellingworth. “The thing is we always said from the beginning if we lose Ben, Lars is the guy, he’s next in line so for Team Sky it’s worked out but it’s sad for Ben, his home race and he was well up for it.” The same crash which accounted for Swift also did for NFTO’s Eddie Dunbar, at 18 the youngest rider in the field. The Irishman, who had been first over the biggest climb of the day at Rosedale Abbey, was taken to hospital with a suspected broken clavicle. The attrition had begun when Giant-Alpecin’s Kittel, who won the opening stage of the Tour de France in Harrogate last year, climbed off midway through the stage having fallen more than six minutes off the pace. The 26-year-old was racing for the first time in two months after a virus and his lack of training was no match for the rolling roads, which seemed to catch out many riders as the peloton splintered. Sir Bradley Wiggins, competing for the first time for his eponymous development team, elected to ride conservatively and stay safe with his attempt at the Hour record scheduled for June. He eventually crossed the line in 96th, almost 15 minutes behind the winners. Saturday sees the peloton take on a 174km route from Selby to York, where a bunch sprint is anticipated, before a tough 167km stage full of climbing between Wakefield and Leeds coincides with a wet weather forecast on Sunday. “Tomorrow should be pretty straight forward with a bunch sprint but the third day, from what I hear, is pretty brutal,” Deignan said when asked if Team Sky can defend their lead. “Lars is obviously in good form so I don’t think we need to be afraid of anyone.” Swift injured his right shoulder in the crash, but Team Sky later confirmed he had not suffered any broken bones. “I’m devastated that I’ve had to withdraw from the race,” Swift said on the team’s website. “I fell heavily on my shoulder and knew straight away that I couldn’t continue. Thankfully nothing is broken so hopefully it won’t keep me off the bike for long. “Congratulations to Lars Petter and the team on the great win. The Yorkshire crowd were absolutely brilliant today and really spurred us on, so a big thank you to everyone who cheered us on.” Cycling’s much-anticipated return to Yorkshire proved a brutal one as race favourite Ben Swift and star sprinter Marcel Kittel were among several casualties on the road from Bridlington to Scarborough.
