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 project

Technical Analysis Review: FBMKLCI 26/11/2017

This is a follow-up review. It has been a month since I last charted the FBMKLCI. Market sentiment continued to weaken and dragged the FBMKLCI lower. As the down trend is still intact, it will most likely persist until it reaches support.

I previously reviewed the FBMKLCI HERE. From my review, I highlighted the bearish trend. After almost a month, the bearish trend is still persisting. Check out Chart 1 below on the medium term trend:

Chart 1: FBMKLCI Medium Term Trend


Nothing too exciting about the FBMKLCI though. Investors should be cautious about the market sentiment. My view is that the FBMKLCI may not have found firm support yet and may trend lower.

Chart 1 above shows the medium-term trend of the FBMKLCI. There are a few key support and resistance levels:

Key Support:
S1: 1,700
S2: 1,680

Key Resistance:

R1: 1,725
R2: 1,751

Chart 2: FBMKLCI Short Term Trend


Final thoughts

Probably, it might be a good time to cash-in onto some profits now. Judging from immediate price action, prices may trend lower. 

Also, do check-out my reviews of the companies below:

Century Logistics  & Success Transformer Corporation-- I did a technical analysis review and a litmus test to see whether this company may have some investment merit. 

Hiap Tech Ventures - I did a technical analysis review of this company.

And last but not least, my feature article for this month is Kronologi Asia Berhad.

Happy trading!!

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. Chart 1: Key Financial and Investment Stat

Home with Homeritz

Homeritz is a company that designs, manufactures and sells its own upholstery furniture. Based on its latest 2016 annual report, it does business in every continent (Americas, Europe, Africa, Middle East, and Asia Pacific) except the North and South Pole.  Chart 1: Revenue Breakdown Based on Geographical Location (Source: 2016 Annual Report) The annual report, however, does not specifically state the major countries that it sells its furniture to. I’d love to get my hands on these information. But alas, I’m not a privileged investor. Financial Analysis Chart 2: Income Statement Breakdown All per share figures are computed using Chart 2 undiluted number of shares. As of the end of June 2017, Homertiz has 514,000 outstanding warrants. (Source: Annual Reports and Quarterly Reports) Chart 2 is an extract of the income statement of Homeritz.

Are Furniture Stocks Still in Vogue? So what’s Up with Hevea?

HeveaBoard Bhd (5095) is a Company that manufactures and sells high grade particleboards (PB) and ready-to-assemble (RTA) furniture. I understand that this stock has been heavily covered and monitored by most investors and finance houses, but I’d like to break it down to the lay investor. Hevea has a very small presence in Malaysia – 3% of annual turnover, and it largely sells its furniture overseas, especially Japan (31%), China (22%), Australia (8%), and Korea (5%). About 78% of its turnover is from the Asia Pacific region and 5% from Europe. Focusing on Asia Pacific is the right strategy as this region is experiencing sustained growth. Check out the article from Forest & Wood Products Australia regarding the potential growth of PB and MDFs in the Asia Pacific region: http://www.fwpa.com.au/statistics-count-newsletter/1246-viewpoint-particle-board-and-mdf-market-development-in-asia-and-access-to-low-grade-logs-and-residue-materials.html Below is a summary of the article: There

Bison Charging Ahead !

Bison Consolidated Berhad (5275) is a dynamic convenience store company listed on the Kuala Lumpur Stock Exchange (KLSE). It has grown many folds since it first opened its myNEWS.com store in 1996. 11 years later, it has opened about 300 stores in Malaysia. In 2012, Bison entered into a joint venture with WH Smith Travel Limited to operate WH Smith news, books, travel and convenience stores in Malaysia. My first impression about the convenience store business was that this is a saturated market – apparently NOT. The thought of many convenience stores come to mind – 7 Eleven, 99 Speed Mart, KK Super Mart, NZ Magazine Centre, Family Mart, K Mart and etc.. All of the stores aforementioned compete within the convenience retail segment. Picture 1: myNEWS.com in Bangsar LRT Station Picture 2: myNEWS.com in Masjid Jamek LRT Station Since its listing on the KLSE, the share price has surged almost 100% from RM1.10 to RM2.38 in one and a half years. The surge was mainly driven by the growth stor
