Dr M's tips for 'smart' investments

UTUSAN Malaysia carried a story on Prime Minister Datuk Seri Dr Mahathir Mohamad urging retail investors to enter the share market. 

“I want to tell people with money that this is the time to buy shares. Investors usually enter the market when the price is up, when it is expensive. 

“People who are really smart invest when the price is down,” he said at Parliament on Tuesday. 

The Malay daily also carried an editorial urging Malaysians to pay closer attention to public safety. 

“The fate that has befallen Canny Ong (who was sexually assaulted and murdered) has touched us all and made us all angry,” it said. 

Utusan said the tragedy could happen to anyone because it was a random act. 

“We should not think of crimes as inevitable and accept the situation,” it added. 

Utusan and Berita Harian also highlighted the appointment of Selayang MP Datuk Chan Kong Choy as Transport Minister. 

Besides Chan, several others were also appointed as deputy ministers and parliamentary secretaries. 

“I hope they would do their best to serve the people. They should also remember that they are members of Barisan Nasional besides being members of their respective parties,” the daily quoted Dr Mahathir as saying. 

Pictures of English football star David Beckham were splashed on the front page of both Utusan Malaysia and Berita Harian. 

The former Manchester United player – who was sold to Spain’s Real Madrid for RM150mil recently and dubbed the “most recognisable footballer of the planet” – was in Malaysia on Tuesday as part of a whirlwind promotional tour to several countries.  

The player attracted a huge crowd, when he made an appearance at the Kuala Lumpur Badminton Stadium. 

Berita said Beckham spent approximately three hours with his fans, including Youth and Sports Minister Datuk Hishammuddin Hussein.
