A woman was yesterday fatally struck by a Puyuma Express train at the Miaoli Railway Station in an apparent suicide, the Taiwan Railways Administration said.

The incident, which occurred at 10:23am, halted train services along the route for nearly an hour and affected 700 passengers, the agency said.

The Puyuma Express No. 110 train was bound for Nangang Station in Taipei when it hit the woman and tossed her body to the southbound track, it said.

Sources said the woman, surnamed Chen (陳), was 38 years old and had disabilities.

An eyewitness, surnamed Lin (林), said Chen had been sitting on a bench on the platform looking downcast and jumped onto the tracks as the train approached the station.

Police said a preliminary investigation found that Chen suffered from moderate depression, but they have yet to determine why she might have committed suicide.

Train services resumed at 11:15am after police had examined the scene and collected potential evidence, the agency added.

Separately, two vehicles crashed at 12:15pm yesterday on the southbound lane of the Sun Yat-sen Freeway (Freeway No. 1) near the Jhubei (竹北) exit.

No one was injured and the lane was soon cleared for traffic, but the incident caused congestion in the 5km leading up to the exit.

ok忠訓國際Other sections of freeways that saw traffic congestion included the southbound lanes of the Sun Yat-sen Freeway between Hukou (湖口) and Hsinchu; on the Formosa Freeway (Freeway No. 3) between the Guansi Service Area and Guansi (關西), between Ciedong (茄苳) and Siangshan (香山), and between Dasi (大溪) and Longtan (龍潭); as well as on the Chiang Wei-shui Freeway (Freeway No. 5) between Nangang (南港) and Shihding (石碇).

Despite some congestion, driving speed along most parts of the freeways was at least 60kph, National Freeway Bureau Traffic Management Division director Hsu Fu-shen (徐忠訓國際福聲) said, adding that traffic is expected to spike this morning — the first day of the Lunar New Year.

Throughout the six-day holiday, the bureau is carrying out traffic control measures along 45 congestion-prone sections on freeways and provincial highways, as well as 10 major tourist attractions, the bureau said.

The bureau would also increase the number of long-distance buses depending on the traffic situation and offer discounted bus tickets to encourage people to use public transportation, it added.

Real-time information about the traffic on national highways is available on the bureau’s 1968 Web site and its smartphone app.

Meanwhile, passenger traffic at Taiwan Taoyuan International Airport yesterday was estimated at 117,043 — which was 13,000 fewer than last year.

Of the 117,043 passengers, 59,012 were departures and 55,350 were arrivals, the airport said.

Although the numbers were surprisingly low, the airport expects to see more than 130,000 passengers departing today.

高價股 6檔業績雙升 最吸睛

上市櫃企業營收出爐,10大高價股為各族群領頭羊,營運表現向來被視為市場風向球。精華(1565)、信驊(5274)等如市場所料繳出年、月同增亮眼成績單,股王大立光(3008)卻是唯一營收年減、月減的高價指標,多空分野鮮明。



元大投顧資深副總杜富蓉指出,新春過後盤面焦點會從資金行情回歸基本面,首先就是營收考驗。因2月有農曆年長假效應忠訓國際,3月營收應較具代表性,另外,指數經過大幅修正後,現階段選股著重業績,建議投資人可於拉回時逢低承接。

台股前10大高價股中,精華、信驊、矽力-KY、旭隼、亞德客-KY、川湖等6檔,營收不僅較去年同期增長,也比去年12月更佳。外資摩根資產管理表示,第1季向來為電子股淡季,台股企業3月底前陸續公布年報,市場將回歸財務基本面表現,有實質業績、展望能見度佳之個股,屆時就是盤面焦點。

資深證券分析師方慕孺說,今年農曆年落在2月、去年則是1月,理論上,今年1月開工天數比去年同期多,營收年增正成長大致符合市場期待,然同步加上比去年12月成長,意味業績確實不差。

精華近期雖遭外資降評,但其營收表現續強,未來逐月業績走勢如何,是國際資金願不願意加碼關鍵。信驊獲麥格理、摩根士丹利證券2大外資看多,且力挺有挑戰千元級實力,是最近高價股話題指標。

摩根大通、摩根士丹利證券聯手追捧亞德客-KY,看好工具機產業景氣仍在上升,推測未來12個月合理股價都在500元之上。

最令市場擔憂的是,向來扮演多頭火車頭的股王大立光,1月營收較上月衰退28%、並年減6%,反而成了高價股唯一落難代ok忠訓國際表。

外資分析師表示,大立光先前雖已打下今年前2個月營運衰退預防針,但營收月減幅比預期更劇烈,甚至低於去年同期,讓市場對蘋果iPhone X、中國智慧機需求更為戒慎。
