A Walk in the Park with Cypark Resources Berhad (5184)

Lately, I have been searching for a company which has good profit margins, a business model which is non-conventional (i.e., not manufacturing, banking, plantation, and trading in nature), and resilient to external market shocks. I hope I have found the right company!


This week I will be looking at Cypark Resources Berhad (5184). Cypark is a company that is involved with the provision of environmental solutions. It has 4 main business segments which are:
1. Environmental engineering: Provision of nature conservation and environmental improvement services.
2. Landscaping and infrastructure: Provision of landscape services, project management services, and infrastructure development.
3. Maintenance: Provision of specialist maintenance works on leachate treatment plants, landscape services for parks, and maintenance of public amenities.
4. Green technology & renewable energy: Solar panel, biogas, biomass, waste-to-energy, and other renewable energy projects.

Technical Analysis Review: FBMKLCI 21/10/2017

The FBMKLCI has been depressed lately. Looking at the chart below, it makes me feel uneasy.
Charting the FBMKLCI is more for determining the overall market sentiment, and may have no relation to individual stocks.
Picture 1: FBMKLCI - Key Support / Resistance Levels

Market sentiment has been bearish. This is evident by the string of black candles in the past 2 weeks. Sentiment became more bearish as the week progressed as the index made 4 consecutive lower closes towards the end of the week. On Friday, October 20, 2017, the market closed at 1,740.65 - immediate support level.

A brief back ground on the bearish trend
On October 9, once prices failed to rally above resistance at 1,766 - zone of price rejection, prices immediately turned south. Prices broke below key support level of 1,752.

Based on the current trend, the bear trend will most likely resume until it finds support. Currently, the index is trading at its immediate support of 1,742 / 1,741.

Key support levels
If the support level of 1,742/1,741 fails to hold, further downside is expected. I expect the next support level to be at 1,731. The MACD is looking bearish, and the down trend seems to be persisting until it reaches its support; hopefully, the down trend in the index will be halted at its immediate support level of 1,742 / 1741.

Listed below are the Key Support and Resistance levels based on Fibonacci levels:

Key Support:
S1: 1,742
S2: 1,736
S3: 1,731

Key Resistance:
R1: 1,752
R2: 1,760
R3: 1,767

Final thoughts
The chart above resonates with bearish sentiment. As we know, the FBMKLCI tracks 30 companies. Hence, selective stock picking is essential during this time.

Personally, I will be staying at the sidelines looking for an opportunity when things are bearish.

Apollo Food Holdings Bhd (6432)

Is investing in Apollo Food Holdings Berhad (6432) a secure and risk-free investment? If you are not sure what Apollo Food Holdings does, you would at least have come across its products in your childhood. Do these snacks below ring a bell?

Who would have thought that this company is listed on the Malaysian Stock Exchange? Based on the BCG growth share matrix, Apollo Food is categorized as a “cash cow.” Milking cash from its day-to-day operations. There has not been much excitement in its share price; it has been in a trading range of RM4.50 – RM6.00 for over 2 years.

This stock will ultimately disappoint investors who are seeking growth companies with quick capital appreciation. However, those who are seeking a safe haven for their capital, or intend to protect their capital may consider this stock in their portfolio.

To invest in Apollo, an investor ought to look at a longer time horizon. Hence, I will be looking at a time frame of 5 years.

Heveaboard Bhd (5095) Update (11 May 2018)

This week I will be reviewing Heveaboard. This is a follow-up review to my previous Heveaboard posts. 

As you are aware, many stocks on Bursa Malaysia were beaten down to its lows recently. Now, after a historic win in the 14th Malaysian General Elections by Pakatan Harapan (Alliance of Hope), will the stock market bounce back? 

The General Election held on May 9,2018, was by and large peaceful and went on without a hitch.  Malaysians are hoping for a clean, fair, and just government. This positive perception will be echoed in the stock market and will bring back market confidence.

We now turn our focus to the annual report of Hevea  that was recently published on April 30, 2018. I thought it would be a good time to perform a follow-up review of this stock. 

Technically, it is showing signs that its share price has bottomed out and has formed a base. The share price has retraced from a high of RM1.72 in October 2017 to RM0.88 in May 8, 2018, a retracement of about 50% !!  See Chart 1: Hev…

Trading Ideas: Zhulian Corporation Berhad (5131)

Today I will be reviewing Zhulian Corporation. This company is a multi-level-marketing (MLM) company dealing with a host of beverages, health products, jewellery, home products and appliances, personal care products, beauty apparels and skin care products.

This review is not a detailed review, rather an analysis of its quarterly results and its technical price action.

Zhulian’s past 4 quarters cumulative earnings per share (EPS) was 11.50 cents and it is trading at a price-earnings ratio of approximately 14.4 times as of February 1, 2018.

Chart 1: Price chart of Zhulian


Based on its price chart, price rallied from a low of RM1.20 on January 3, 2017, to its highest point of RM2.15 on January 24, 2018, an appreciation of 180%. However, prices dipped on January 25, 2018, after the announcement of its latest Q4 2017 financial results. I guess expectations were running high on whether Zhulian could sustain the growth in its share price.

At this point, prices have retraced about 50%, from a …
