Bisnis.com, JAKARTA - Investors are more bullish for Jakarta Composite Index (JCI) outlook in 2022, as Indonesia's benchmark index saw a 10,08 percent growth in 2021 – the best among other indices in the region.
Combined economic growth momentum and commodity boom will fuel up JCI performance towards the 7.000 points. The US Federal Reserve bond purchase tapering or the 7-Day Reserve Repo Rate (7-DRRR) hike will have minimal impact on the composite index movement.
CIO of Danareksa Investment Management, Herman Tjahjadi, said Indonesia's macroeconomic conditions are getting better by 2022, as reflected in the PMI (Purchasing Managers' Index) manufacturing which rebounded to an expansion level above 50 as people's mobility increases.
Meanwhile, the economic enthusiasm will cement the foundation in the capital market and may lift the stock prices of public companies.
"We, Danareksa IM, see that the JCI move around 6,500 - 7,300 points this year," Herman said recently, adding that shares of companies that gained an advantage from economic growth momentum are worth observing, including banking, property, and consumer discretionary stocks.
Other real-sector stocks such as automotive, mall operator property, logistics, and construction may offer higher yields when the economy grows in 2022.
