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

Conclusion
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.

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

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

Zhulian Corporation Berhad (5131) -- Follow-up review (21/7/2018)

This is a follow-up review of my previous post on Zhulian back on February 2, 2018. Previously, I opined that this counter should begin to consolidate after a significant price retracement as it had been trading close to its Net Assets per share price of around RM1.30. Six months after my previous review and it seems like its share price has started to consolidate. My last post was based on the financial results of Q4 2017. The company has since released the financial results for 2 quarters. Based on its latest financial results, there seems to be some improvement in its profit after tax margin. Profit after tax in Q2 2018 was about RM12 million, was higher than Q1 2018 and Q4 2017, but generally lower than PAT in 2017, see Table 1: Quarterly Financial Results of Zhulian.  It has been reporting the same story in its quarterly reports that its decline in revenue was due to a drop in sales in its Thai business operations. Cumulatively, its financials fared much worse, see Tabl
