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

Trading Ideas: Century Logistics Holdings Bhd (14/11/201)

This week I wanted to take look at Century Logistics Holdings Bhd (7117) to see whether it has any potential investment value. I have never analysed this company in more detail as I had never allocated time to look at it; my loss though. Since rallying to a high of RM 1.40 in June 16, 2017, it retraced to RM 1.03 in September 2017. Ever since then, the company’s share price has been consolidating.

The company is involved with the logistics business, as described by its name – Century Logistics. This analysis is a litmus test to see whether this company warrants more attention. It was noted that on October 31, 2016, the founder and major shareholder, Datuk Richard Phua, had transacted to dispose off his 31.44% stake in Century Logistics to CJ Korea Express Asia Ltd for RM1.45 per share. Its new parent company CJ Logistics Corp is quite a large Korean logistics company with an annual turnover of over USD 4 billion.

Below is a chart of its share price performance for 1 year:

Chart 1: Century Logistics Holdings Bhd Share Price Chart

Below are the quarterly financial results of Century Logistics for the past 10 quarters. The purpose of the charts below are to determine whether were there any growth in the financial results of the company. 

Chart 2: Quarterly Revenue Trend

Chart 3: Quarterly Profit after Tax Trend

Chart 4: Earnings per Share

Based on the graphical view of its profit after tax and earnings per share trend, there has not been much growth. Its share price rallied to a high of RM 1.40 in June 16, 2017. After reporting lower profits in August 2017, its share price retraced to about RM 1. 20 in November 2017. Technically, if there are no improvement in its financials, prices should continue to consolidate.

Technical Analysis Review of its price action

From the price chart, it is noted that price action is quite bearish. The candle on November 14, 2017 closed below its 20-day exponential moving average. It tested its recent high of RM1.18 three times in August, September, and October; prices subsequently failed to rally and close above this price level. The MACD histogram which indicates momentum shows a loss of bullish momentum in the stock; note the bearish crossover of the 9-day signal line on November 13.

Key support and resistance levels:
Support: RM 1.03, RM 0.97
Resistance: RM 1.18, RM 1.30

In my opinion, I would think that investors should look out for more positive news which will materialize into actual profits before committing to this company. 

Market sentiment has been bearish lately, do check out my review of the FBMKLCI to get a feel of the market direction HERE.

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

Ornapaper Berhad - From corrugated boxes to carton boxes

As you may know, most stocks on Bursa Malaysia have traded lower in recent weeks due to the bearish sentiment and lack of positive factors. Share prices may continue to retrace or consolidate, but either way, it is good to keep your options open.

Trading Ideas: Sasbadi Holdings Berhad (5252)

Sasbadi is one of the companies that I came across numerous times back when I was a student. I was a loyal supporter of Sasbadi reference books as I found their books well organized, contained relevant information, and had a good range of exercise questions. If you were born after the 80’s I am sure you would have heard of Sasbadi. In fact, my decent examination results were partially due to purchasing their good quality reference books.  Today I’d like to take a look at Sasbadi Holdings and see whether it has any investment merit. Below is a chart of Sasbadi’s share price: Chart 1: Sasbadi Historical Share Price Based on the chart above, prices have retraced near to its initial IPO price of about 45 cents.

Technical Review of Econpile Holdings Bhd (5253, 16/6/2018)

The markets have not been exciting lately, but I have an interesting stock to share. For investors who are looking for a stock to trade, I recommend Econpile Holdings Bhd (5253).  Its share price seems to be oversold and is  ready for a bullish rebound .    Based on its technical price chart, its share price started to dip at the beginning of 2018. The 30-day exponential moving average (EMA) has been its overhead resistance since early February 2018 until now. In this article, I will explore the likelihood of it breaking above its 30-day EMA overhead resistance. The 30-day exponential moving average overhead resistance could mean that this stock is in a downtrend as well.  Pakatan Harapan, Malaysia's newly elected political party's victory in the General Elections in May 2018 had an adverse effect on its share price. Upon the opening bell of the Malaysian market on May 14, 2018, its share price gaped down 8 cents, and closed at RM .788, a decline of 22.7 cents
