Resorts In Play

A significant moment on selling down Star Cruises to CMY. This really puts Resorts in play for the next 6 months. I still suspect Stanley Ho is eying some sort of participation with Genting or Resorts. Briefly, the sell down to CMY will see almost all research houses booting their target price for Resorts from RM4.10-4.30 to RM4.80-RM5.00. Thats because the sale will remove part of the drag on earnings growth.

All up, cash available for dividend, should they decide to do so, can amount to a dividend of 60 sen per share. CMY did not make his billions by buying dormant money losing stakes.

CMY has been a very big buyer of Resorts for the last 2 weeks. Resorts can and should distribute its 6% holdings in Genting International to Resorts shareholders. This way it eliminates direct links with Genting International (i.e. Singapore authorities). Following the distribution, Resorts could be better placed to consider any deals with Stanley Ho. The 6% value in Genting International is worth more than RM600m in value.

Dear Dali,

Is it possible the whole Genting Group is under hostile takeover target? I think CMY is trying to defend the takeover war for Tan Sri Lim Kok Thay? Not sure the hostile takeover is from outside the Lim family or inside Lim family? I think CMY will make big money again this time. :)

"CMY did not make his billions by buying dormant money losing stakes."

wat abt time engineering? and selling his long-stuck ktebraus at 70 sen? sorry, i cldnt resist.....

there will not be a special dividend from resorts. Now they shld be looking to unravel and restructure the ownership of landmarks. (even perhaps a GO???)
They used the wrong vehicle to buy it and then realised it shld come under resorts afterall.
It is bintan and thats too close for comfort to the IR.
cmy is a middle man just true to his profession ie making quick bucks out of quick deals. Afterall one can trace his roots to brokeraging. Im sure cmy did not make billions if not he would be ranked among the richest in msia. my opinion is that he is fronting for someone for a certain amount of fee.

actually cmy stood to make a huge sum if both govt agreed to the s&p of time, but was thwarted at the last minute... actually he bought tebrau early, less than 60 sen ... but itchy backside took his helicopter to survey Tebrau's landbank, which was swampy... he went back and sold at 70 sen...

the postulation that resorts would be used to absorb landmarks make a lot of sense owing to the Sentosa IR thingee, agreed.

as for hellthy correction, I told on of fellow analysts that CMY is acting as a surrogate buyer for Stanley, to involve Stanley now would be too sensitive... wait till the sentosa is way underway, then ..

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…
