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: FBMKLCI Review (21/4/2018)

It has been some time since I last blogged about the markets. So far, I have been accurate about the markets. Do check out my previous review of the FBMKLCI

The index staged a breakout on April 19, 2018, to close on a high of 1,895.18; its highest since July 2014 when it closed around 1,890 points. Note that it has been about 4 years since it last closed above 1,890 points. 

What are the probable possibilities?
In my opinion, there are three possibilities: 
1. The market stages a false breakout and then moves lower to 1,810 points.
2. This is a genuine breakout, prices hold above 1,880 points, and continues moving higher.
3. Prices retrace below 1,880 to around 1,860 or 1,835 points; prices then consolidate for some time. 

It should be noted that market momentum was bullish for the past 3 weeks from 8 to April 19 as prices rallied continuously. 

Chart 1: FBMKLCI Chart as of April 20, 2018





Bullish momentum to carry on?
I cannot deny what I see as the chart tells me that bullish momentum can still carry on. Other than that, another bullish sentiment factor is the upcoming General Elections on May 9, 2018. 

Despite the bearish business atmosphere due to global political risks -- Syrian war and the possibilities of a trade war between China and US, the FBMKLCI has been surprisingly bullish.  

Key Support Levels:
S1: 1,880 
S2: 1,860
S3: 1,835
S4: 1,810

Final thoughts
Having an overall picture of the charts gives us an idea of the FBMKLCI's sentiment: Bullish in a bearish environment. 

If prices close below 1,880, investors should be cautious as the possibility of a correction happening is likely. Investors are advised to tread with caution.

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

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

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.
