DJ MARKET TALK: Genting Plantations May Fall On Mall Pact Delay


0021 GMT [Dow Jones] Genting Plantations (2291.KU) may fall to MYR6.85 support (high of March 24) after missing deadline to formalize agreement with Simon Property Group (SPG) to set up Chelsea Premium Outlets in Malaysia; Genting Plantations announced that deadline has been extended by another 3 months; company had unveiled in September 2009 proposal to set-up JV with Simon Property to develop and operate upscale outlet mall in Johor state, which would be first such outlet in Southeast Asia; dealers say delay in signing of definitive agreement may raise doubts about project. "One thing is for sure, with the extension of the deadline, the earlier stated target of having the outlet mall up and running by early 2011 looks highly unlikely to be met. This may give investors an excuse to take some profits from this stock, which rallied to a 2-year high last week," dealer says. Genting Plantations ended 0.6% lower at MYR6.96 yesterday
