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 (2/2/2018)

It has been awhile since I last reviewed the FBMKLCI. My last review was on 26/11/2017. During that time I was bearish on the FBMKLCI and highlighted that the immediate support was around 1,700 points. Do check out my review HERE. I came close though, the FBMKLCI reached 1,708 points in December 5, 2017. Ever since then, the FBMKLCI has rallied to a high of 1,880 points as of February 2, 2018.

Overall, the FBMKLCI is in an uptrend, potentially taking a breather at 1,880 points.

Chart 1: FBMKLCI



From the price action, I noticed that currently FBMKLCI is oversold and has met immediate resistance at 1,880. The Relative Strength Index (RSI) and the Stochastic Indicator also shows that the index is oversold.

Despite the FBMKLCI being oversold, I cannot for sure say that prices will immediately turn south. Probably consolidating before continuing in its uptrend. Based on price action, I think prices may retrace due to the oversold conditions. The cautious sentiment was echoed around the Asian region as most major indexes retreated today.

Technical Support and Resistance levels:
Support:
S1: 1,850
S2: 1,820

Resistance:
R1: 1,880
R2: 1,900

Final thoughts
Due to the impending elections this year, the continued positive effect on the FBMKLCI should persist. In addition, the strengthening of the MYR against the USD had its positive effect on the bourse. However, I would prefer that the MYR not strengthen too much as this would be a bane for exporters.

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.

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 …

If you are like me, a person who wants to know the split of revenue and profits in terms of business segments, you will be disappointed. This company does not disclose this information in such detail. It only discloses its revenue split in terms of geographical location as shown below in Chart 1:

Johore Tin Berhad (7167)

Johore Tin Berhad (7167) or Johore Tin has 2 main business segments:
1. Tin manufacturing – the manufacture of tin cans, containers and tin plates
2. Food and beverage (F&B) – the production of infant dairy products, milk powder, condensed and evaporated milk, and other dairy beverages

One would assume based on its name – Johore Tin – its main business is tin can manufacturing. Surprisingly, it has shifted its focus over the years from a tin manufacturer to a food and beverage company. This happened back in 2012 when its management decided to invest into the food and beverage business. To be frank, I have never noticed its products in the shopping complex as most of the milk products on display are dominated by popular brands from Nestle, Dutch Lady and Fonterra. I was looking out for Able Dairies’ products on the shelves of Tesco, but I was unable to recognise any of its products on display. Below is a breakdown of revenue based on its business segment.
