Asia Wealth Securities is bullish on equities in the power producer sector, particularly GPSC, GULF, and BGRIM, following a fall in crude oil prices in response to the Russian-Ukrainian negotiations, which have made little progress.

Third round of negotiations between Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov and Mr. Dmitro Kuleba, Minister of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine is scheduled today (10 Mar). There are positive signs and progress ahead of the talks. The statement from the Russian Foreign Ministry spokesman said that there is no intention to overthrow the Ukrainian government, to occupy Ukraine, to destroy the statehood of Ukraine, to overturn the Ukrainian government and no targets against civilians. The attitude of Ukraine is likely to give up its intention to become a member of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO), in response to one of Russia’s demands for Ukraine.
