Felda Global Ventures (FGV) flattened out at RM4.58, three sen higher than its initial public offering price, at 4.30pm today after surging 14 sen to a high of RM4.62 yesterday.

An analyst with Public Investment Bank Bhd said that while the upcoming general election has set a cautious tone among investors, there is no shortage of funds.
