BANGKOK, 11 January 2018 (NNT) - SCB Securities expects the Thai stock market to experience healthy activity this year and has forecast the SET index will reach 1,900 by the end of the year.

Senior Director of Strategic Investment and Research at SCB Securities Isara Ordeedolchest said he expects the SET index this year to reach 1,900, due to investments in infrastructure and the EEC, a new influx of investment capital, high inflation, and global economic growth.

He advised investors to beware of a market correction that could result from the recent upsurge. However Isara believes the correction should be no more than 10% or no less than 1,750 - 1,720, a support level where investors should be waiting to buy.

Attractive investments include sectors that will benefit from the country's economic growth, such as transportation, life insurance, and real-estate. Isara claimed that investors should be cautious of the export sector, which is currently contending with a stronger baht.
