KL Share Prices Up, FBM KLCI Firmly Above 1,200

Share prices on Bursa Malaysia ended higher Wednesday with the FTSE Bursa Malaysia Kuala Lumpur Composite Index (FBM KLCI) staying above the 1,200-point level, on continuing positive sentiment amid sharp gains in US stocks, dealers said.

Halex Holdings, a company involved in the horticulture and healthcare disposables business, made its debut on Bursa Malaysia today. The counter, which opened at 82 sen, with a four sen premium over its offer price, continued its uptrend to close at 94 sen.
Among actives, KNM Group rose three sen to 77.5 sen, Multi-Purpose Holdings slipped seven sen to RM1.88 and Multi Sports Holdings rose 3.5 sen to 53.5 sen.
