MBF Holdings - A Goodie Or Baddie?

esteoh said...
nothing wrong with MBFH and I believe it is NOT sanbumi...major share holder own more than 66 % and it is cutting dept fast...I think we should give the new management a chance as they took over 2004


Issued Capital: 570m
Market Cap at RM0.50 = RM285m
Cash flow per share 2005 +19.7 sen
Cash flow per share 2006 +19 sen
Net gearing: 1.6x
NTA/share: RM0.40
Net Profit 2005: RM50.6m
Net Profit 2006 (estd.): RM26.5m

2005 saw a RM32.7m one off gain owing to the deconsolidation of Alamanda Development. The Mandatory General Offer was at RM0.215, and now the share is above RM0.50 ... hmmm... wanna sell or buy?? Basically this pony has two main tricks, one is credit card and the other is the large exposure in plantation, auto merchandising but in Fiji and PNG. The rest are too small to matter to bottom line. The share has surged past NTA and with the kind of businesses they have, they should be at a discount to NTA, the company is not a Rothmans. So, a fair valuation should be no more than RM0.35 at most. Wanna buy some auto merchandising cum plantation in Fiji or PNG?? The high business risk exposure and lack of scalability, plus lack of capital for credit card business caps any interest in the stock. Below RM0.40 it was still good, above RM0.50 it became speculative. Profitable but speculative, and looks to be headed for highly speculative grounds judging from price trend. Looks like main owner is pumping to release some shares as he controls only 50% of company, plus coming through the MGO at the cheap RM0.215 level.

Dali, did you read the report in the last Edge (2nd last page), comparing marketcap and trading volumes between some Asian countries over the last 10 years?

I knew that things were bad here, but never suspected it is that bad. By far the worst performer, unbelievable amount of capital destroyed (more than 100 billion USD), and the trading down all the way, dwarfed by so many other Asian countries (except Indonesia and Phillipines).

What do you think about this? Do you have a link to the original article?

My Master, A National Treasure

REPOST:  Its been more than two years since I posted on my sifu. This is probably the most significant posting I had done thus far that does not involve business or politics. My circle of close friends and business colleagues have benefited significantly from his treatment.


My Master, Dr. Law Chin Han (from my iPhone)

Where shall I start? OK, just based on real life experiences of those who are close to me. The entire Tong family (Bukit Kiara Properties) absolutely swear that he is the master of masters when it comes to acupuncture (and dentistry as well). To me, you can probably find many great dentists, but to find a real Master in acupuncture, thats a whole different ballgame.


I am not big aficionado of Chinese medicine or acupuncture initially. I guess you have to go through the whole shebang to appreciate the real life changing effects from a master.


My business partner and very close friend went to him after 15 years of persistent gout problem, he will get his heavy attacks at least…

PUC - An Assessment

PUC has tried to reinvent itself following the untimely passing of its founder last year. His younger brother, who was highly successful in his own right, was running Pictureworks in a number of countries in Asia.

The Shares Price Rise & Possible Catalysts

Share price has broken its all time high comfortably. The rise has been steady and not at all volatile, accompanied by steady volume, which would indicate longer term investors and some funds already accumulating nd not selling back to the market.


Potential Catalyst #1

The just launched Presto app. Tried it and went to the briefing. Its a game changer for PUC for sure. They have already indicated that the e-wallet will be launched only in 1Q2018. Now what is Presto, why Presto. Its very much like Lazada or eBay or Alibaba. Lazada is a platform for retailers to sell, full stop. eBay is more for the personal one man operations. Alibaba is more for wholesalers and distributors.

Presto links retailers/f&b/services originators with en…

How Long Will The Bull Lasts For Malaysia

Are we in a bull run? Of course we are. Not to labour the point but I highlighted the start of the bull run back in January this year... and got a lot of naysayers but never mind:






























p/s: needless to say, this is Jing Tian ... beautiful face and a certain kind of freshness in her looks and acting career thus far



http://malaysiafinance.blogspot.my/2016/12/bank-negara-may-have-switched-on-bull.html


I would like to extend my prediction that the bull run for Bursa stocks should continue to run well till the end of the year. What we are seeing for the past 3 weeks was a general lull where volume suddenly shrunk but the general trend is still intact. My reasons for saying so:

a) the overall equity markets globally will be supported by a benign recovery complemented by a timid approach to raising rates by most central banks

b) thanks to a drastic bear run for most commodities, and to a lesser extent some oil & gas players, the undertone for "cost of materials" have been weak and has pr…
