could u comment on
1) China as an advocate of a new common trade denomination using IMF's SDR. and its implications to trade in China and commodities when the oriental powerhaus shakes the greenback.

2)stellar foreign entity that should be listed on local bourse as we have many MultiNational Corps n Conglomerates that arent interested in a listing status and why?

thank you

Too much political fog obscuring Yuan revaluation. Can't see through to the pure economics.

Why would any 'stellar foreign entity' with local operations seek listing on KLSE with its low regional visibility, relatively poor liquidity, shareholder quotas, disclosure requirements, political uncertainties and the like?

Well, if the arguement tabled is based on the listing requirements and all I think the SC are doing quite a commendable job but in the role bursa plays as a moderator is yet global but I do see signs of stepping up a notch ! If conditions were as poorly carved as claimed why would foreign financial entities even bother to covering Malaysia in oversea investor briefings .. I might say that regardless of how victimize we were due to past administrator it nvr harms to be optimistic on development and how resilent we human are... Call me ignorant an naive Malaysia holds vast potential and presents appealing valuations that businesses wouldn't forego
kl said…
The argument is predicated on the wants and needs of a 'stellar foreign entity'....Can't be to enhance local visibility, raise cheap funds or a desire to allow Malaysians get a piece of a great business at an affordable price. At least not in my experience of MNCs.

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…
