TRADING of shares in SWS Capital Bhd (fundamental: 0.35/3, valuation: 0.3/3), which triggered our momentum algorithm yesterday for the first time this year, led the stock to close two sen or 2.94% higher at 70 sen. The counter saw 1.94 million shares traded, versus its 200-day average trading volume of 103,853 shares.

It has inked a memorandum of understanding with local information technology company Nexus Union Sdn Bhd with an options agreement to take up a 51% stake in Nexus’ 70%-owned MATA Aerotech Sdn Bhd for RM4.725 million.
