Undervalued good quality stocks in KLSE

Is KLSE over-valued?  What is KLSE market PE?

The historical market PE is around 10 to 20, averaging 15 over the long term.   With the KLSE index at 1312.48 recently, the  market PE was 19.23  (Source: iCap website).   This market PE was at the upper end of the normal market PE range.  The index-linked counters are probably trading at fair or high value. 

However, if one were to browse through the stock section of our local papers, there are still many stocks trading below ttm-PE of 10.  Many stocks maybe priced such due to lack of 'popular support' or 'neglect'.  They maybe 'fallen' stocks.  Amongst these, there are good quality stocks that are undervalued even in the present market.

If you discover any gem(s), please share here.

Hi, have a close look at DUFU. Consistent good growths in revenue, earnings and cash flows, excellent profitability and management efficiency, in the industry at the front end of recovery; But selling at low price-to-sale, price-to-earnings and price-to-book values. Does not seem to be flash in the pan as the most recent quarter earnings doubled.

I think the China shoe stocks are THE BEST in THE WORLD.

Multi Sports

PE Superb low
G Still got Moderate growth
G Gearing zero, net cash
Y Yield-dividend more than 10%

BUT I DON NOT trust China shoe stocks. Is the figure real??? Most research also having about the same figure. Can they achieve it?

23/11/10 Guan Chong

AT 1.81 per share, its market capitalisation is RM 434 million. This is a company generating more than than a billion ringgit in revenue per year. Its earnings have improve substantially over this year.

Negatives: High leverage, low profit margin

Positives: High asset turnover, improving margins.

Should business of this company be maintained or continues to improve, investors may re-rate its present low PE.

At current price of 19 sen, it is the cheapest mother share in the whole of KLSE.
PE of 3.
Eps of 6.62 sen.
Cash per share 53 sen.
Net Worth per share 98.9 sen.
Net Cash RM113.8 million.

Definately a value stock to keep for long term returns.

Based on my own assessment, ASB is not a high quality stock.

Why ASB is not a value stock?

Since my question was posted, "why ASB is not a value stock?" as you mentioned. You cannot answer back my question straight away. But how come you can straight away answered me that ASB is not a high quality stock. Sorry to say you could be a bit "biased" in your mind or maybe your analysis on ASB was done too long ago. Apology.

FYI, I have myself checked ASB accounts and have followed up announcements made by ASB quite thouroughly from 2000 right up to now. I noticed ASB has inproved tremendously in growth, cashflow and accounts. Based on these two years, they have turned from losses to profits. Their Cash balances increased year by year. Their accounts have improved after they have written off their losses by capital reduction exercise done in 2008. The two outstanding court issues are also in their favour. Once these issues are over, their Cash balance will be tripled or even more. Their present Cash in hand alone stands at RM113.8 million. Given the same trend in business undertakings for next 3 years, I am confident ASB can become very successful all round. I cannot write more due to limitation of writing space alloted here.

That's why I regard ASB as a highly value stock not based on what I guessed or listened but based on what I have done my research on ASB. ASB is indeed a rear hidden gem. Maybe many people have overlooked. Once bought, we must keep ASB for a medium to long term investment?. Best Regards.

ASB not quality stock, poor management forsight therefore grossly undervalue, hope Management can come out with New Business propose I have kept the shares for many years hope it bear fruit. best of luck!!

I hope the bull run for ASB will continue.
Reasons being:
1. Interested parties like ACE INA may acquire all the cheap shares available in the market.
2. Another interested parties may block ACE INA possible acquisition by acquiring more shares in the public. No harm afterall.
3. Announcement of the 4th Qtr Report is coming soon. Profit announcement may trigger more Buy Calls for ASB.

NP Margin: 9.12%
ROE: 21%
Short term loan: 0
Long term loan: 0
Cash: 61.9million

Hi Iinvestsmart,

Please comment on SKPRES.


kjgooi said...

My forecast on SKPRES:

Based on Q3, Q4 results: 15million/quarter
Annual Net profit=15*4=60million


Dividend yield=30/310.5*100=9.67%
ROE: 60/181.3*100 = 33%

Right or wrong, please comment.

KLCCP, if it plans to spin off into prop REITS like Kassets for Mid Valley MM n I believe they will do it soon, it shall be worth at least $10.00, basing on the good earnings... All current giant Prop REITS r priced way above PE 20X. KLCCP has an added iconic franchise value. And Prop REITS has less corporate tax, therefore higher valuation potential, can someone Check this up ??

This spin off is an active re-valuation exercise thru a simple multiplication factor to making fast n sure money.

Mkt review :

Issac Newton's law of motion is still perfectly applied to this mkt even today.
He quoted n I paraphrase, "A growth stock in motion will always be in motion until it is forced to stop by an external/global events"

These growth stocks will go on to be the greatest winning stocks = Ms Universe stocks. And they r few !

Their exponential rise is usually accompanied by Theme play on a high speed 'herd highway' as follows:

1st movers :
1. Telco, lead by MAXIS, TM to DIGI, AXIATA
2. Banks, lead by Maybank to PBBANK, HLBANK

2nd movers :
4. Motor, UMW to MBMR
5. Spin off to REIT, KASSETS to KLCCP
6. New-Highs : HARTA, ORIENT, PADINI, ZHULIAN, etc n more to come !

The key to all these is NEW-HIGHS.
