UPSR to be maintained - Good for SASBADI

"The Ujian Pencapaian Sekolah Rendah (UPSR) will be maintained to gauge the six-year achievement of students in primary school, Deputy Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin said today.

He said the UPSR examination would be able to gauge the extent of the students' acceptance of lessons taught by their teachers, especially in key subjects.

"Whatever the results, they will still go to Form One, but parents want to know where (level) they stand. "So, we continue with the policy we have long implemented to prove our chance of evaluating the students' performance," he said.

He told reporters this after a visit to Sekolah Kebangsaan Presint 16 (2) to see the progress of the UPSR examination, which was taken by 82 students at the school.

It was imperative to evaluate students' progress at primary school level before they moved on to secondary school, he said.

"They will continue to be guided through the school-based evaluation (Pentaksiran Berasaskan Sekolah - PBS) which we implement. Hopefully, this will produce brighter students and with higher order thinking skills," he said"...read more

- This is why SASBADI shares seem like such a good investment to me.

Active trading, especially among the penny stocks, saw the 10 most-active stocks on Bursa accounting for about half the traded volume of shares. 

The selldown in selected penny stocks spooked sentiment, as the number of losers outpaced gainers at a ratio of three-to-one, but that did not deter the buying of blue chips"...read more

"Trading in shares on Bursa Malaysia continued its uptrend to hit a peak of 7.67 billion shares yesterday after recording 5.11 billion shares on Tuesday, suggesting a market correction "will not be too far away", according to industry players.

A fund manager who declined to be named said despite heightened trading in the local stock market off-late, he opined that it is not a healthy scenario that could lead to a correction in the market.

"Each time when the volume shoots up, the market will go down then," he told SunBiz.

The fund manager revealed that the fixation on small caps has led "a few" security houses to impose trading restriction on large margin trading of certain stocks.
"They (securities houses) cap the trading to avoid a counter becoming a designated security," he added."...read more
