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

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 or 22% of its share price. Prices subsequently trended to a low of RM .557, before rebounding to RM .74 on June 14, 2018.

Oversold Prices?
Its share price, Relative Strength Index (RSI) and moving average convergence divergence (MACD), all points to oversold prices. The strong bull bar on June 14, 2018, pulled the stock out of the oversold zone on the RSI quickly. Market participants were net buyers from 4 - 13 June, and some profit taking happened on June 14, which was expected after a notable run from RM .56 to RM .73. 

Bullish momentum to continue or consolidation ahead?
There is a high chance that the bullish momentum will continue. Insiders have accumulated the stock in early June 2018 and evidence of selling pressure has not been evident yet. Its immediate resistance of RM .75 seems to be a psychological level that this stock has to break through. 

There is a possibility that its share price may consolidate below RM .75. Support at RM .63 is the level that investors should look at. If prices move below RM .63, I would think that prices will continue to trend lower. 

Below are the key support and resistance levels which I have indicated for reference:

Key Support and Resistance Levels
Support: S1 RM .70
              S2 RM .63
              S3 RM .54

Resistance: R1 RM.75
                  R2 RM.80
                  R3 RM.94

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
