Oil & Gas Hype

SapuraCrest Petroleum Bhd’s subsidiary TL OffShore Sdn Bhd has won a US$175.8mil (RM542m) contract from Murphy Sabah Oil Co Ltd.
The contract was for the provision of engineering, procurement, construction, installation and commissioning of the 140km Kikeh gas pipeline, which would transport associated gas from Murphy’s Deepwater Kikeh Field to Labuan Gas Terminal. Kikeh Field, located about 1,300m offshore Sabah, is the first deepwater development in Malaysia. SapuraCrest said the deepwater pipelay would be executed using Sapura 3000, owned by SapuraAcergy Group, its 50% joint venture company with the Acergy Group. The project is scheduled for completion in the first quarter of 2008 and is expected to contribute positively in the current year ending Jan 31, 2008.

All the hooplah over oil & gas stocks for the past 12 months have yielded a lot of hot air. Many oil & gas related stocks have seen their share prices more than doubled, and the size of the contracts secured are those types that are less than RM100m in value. SapuraCrest has quietly showed progress and notching milestones along the way. Can expect new substantial shareholder to continue to give SapuraCrest a leg over the rest. More big contracts on the way for SapuraCrest.

Hi salvatore,

I am a fan of the O&G theme. I am watching this counter, Daya Material. Do you expect a good run on this counter becoz of the proposed acquisition of O&G company? Mostly likely, market will heat up once Petra Energy list....the Market comptroller is smart, every time the market look dead they will release some good news like O&G contract. Over the long term, the whole market become more vibrant.

Else, the equity market look tired with some foreign funds started their selling. External front, it needs some terrorist factor to knock the market down....I suspect hedge fund is shorting the world market. Hope I am wrong...

Back to basic, I like Emivest...because the chicken we eat need to be feed and the big scale company provide the feeds and good dividend yield....well, if we are vegetarian, then no need to say lah. what is yr thought?

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

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…
