Sukarno said that the positive sentiment for the shares of issuers of consumer goods, one of which is if the economy can recover faster and the vaccination program is successful. Thus, the potential for purchasing power will increase again.

“Meanwhile, the current negative sentiment stems from an increase in raw materials in line with rising commodity prices and the depreciation of the Rupiah. Because it is reflected in its performance, the majority profit margin ratio is in a downward trend,” Sukarno said to Kontan, Sunday (3/10).
