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.

Technical Analysis Review: Hiap Teck Venture Bhd (5072) - 12/11/2017

I recently found out about this company -- Hiap Teck Venture Bhd (5072) -- through a friend of mine, and I thought I should take a look at it. I have not performed my fundamental analysis on this company yet, but I wanted to write about my observations on the price action of this company. 

Based on a surface level review of its financials, I noted that its joint venture company -- Eastern Steel Sdn Bhd -- recorded an impairment loss on its property, plant and equipment of about RM 266 million in its latest Q4 2017 financial result that was announced on September 28, 2017. As Hiap Teck's interest in the joint venture company was 55%, its share of losses from Eastern Steel was roughly RM 155 million. See Picture 1 below on the summary of its quarterly results:

Technical Analysis Review of its Share Price

Picture 2: Price Chart of Hiap Teck









Based on my observations of the price chart, I think the hurdle for prices to trade higher is the trend line highlighted in BLUE. In addition, the MACD histogram shows a decrease in momentum at the high of point A to the lower high of point B. The RSI also indicates declining momentum as it is trending lower at point B. See Picture 2 above.

All is not negative for Hiap Teck as prices are still supported above its 20-day exponential moving average and prices have closed above the "gap down" on September 29, 2017.

However, I view that its latest price action on November 9 and 10, 2017 were bearish indicators

Key technical support and resistance levels:
Key Resistance: RM 0.425, RM 0.45
Key Support: RM 0.41, RM 0.39

Conclusion
These are just my observations based on price action and is not intended to be a buy and sell advice. 

The FBMKLCI has been bearish lately. Do check out my review of the FBMKLCI HERE to get a look on the immediate trend.

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

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 Char

Technical Analysis Review: HeveaBoard (5095) 25/10/2017

This counter had recently rallied and closed at a high of RM1.75 on October 23, 2017. What followed in the subsequent days were 2 straight days of profit taking. This was evident by the 2 significant black bodied candles which closed lower until October 25, 2017. Refer Picture 1 below on the technical chart of HeveaBoard. Picture 1:HeveaBoard Chart 25/10/2017 For any investor, testing a high 3 times at RM1.75 in 3 months would be an important indicator of a potential change in trend. Currently, HeveaBoard is trading at an important price "zone" - immediate medium term support level of RM 1.62 . Knowledge sharing For all support/resistance levels, there is a +/- variance of approximately 1% from the support line indicated. Hence, support at RM 1.62, can be interpreted as support at RM1.61 or RM 1.63. Can the support zone hold? Probably, because prices retraced about 50% from its previous rally . Note that the previous rally began in the highlighted RED rectangle - September 2
