UMW: Over-stretched

UMW had a fine run after our buy call on Jan 25. The rally was given a boost by the announcement of Sime's proposed split & listing of its plantation & property businesses. For now, UMW - which I rate as a long-term BUY - is pretty stretched. I doubt it can surpass the resistance at the horizontal line at RM6.00-6.05. Its immediate support is at the horizontal line at RM5.80.

Based on strong price run-up, I think UMW could be a good trading SELL at RM5.90-6.00. If you wish to buy for long investment, you should wait for the price to pullback to RM5.50 or below.
