0459 GMT [Dow Jones] Heavy buying in select blue chips by local funds helped Malaysian shares recoup earlier losses to close higher at midday ahead of a long weekend. The benchmark KLCI ended 0.8% up at 1804.03 after opening at 1788.78 and touching an intraday low at 1780.10. The market reopens Tuesday after the Lunar New Year. "We saw some strong interest in the industrial and construction counters though investors cherry picked some plantation stocks," a dealer who tips resistance at 1810 says. Gainers trailed laggards 291 to 317 with 267 unchanged. Genting (3182.KU) added 2.6% to MYR10.40, unit Genting Malaysia (4715.KU) gained 3.6% to MYR4.36 while IHH Healthcare (5225.KU) fell 1.1% at MYR3.69 and RHB Capital (1066.KU) shed 0.9% at MYR7.67.
