LCTitan Guessing Game

LCTitan's (5284) 2Q earnings numbers if it follows last year's reporting right to the T will be out today. Getting the guesstimate numbers correct  - if it surprises to the upside - could mean a small tidy and profitable trade. T1 or T2.  Amongst the key upside/down risks variables analysts generally look out for as part of their discourse on b...

TopGlove Loses Round One

Of course it would fail - the odds were simply too low that the Court(s) would side TopGlove on this fight. In my post on July 10, even as a layman, it was simply hard to believe the accusations that such a giant player and experienced cookie could be so easily defrauded. A giant killer? No this isn't a tale of a bunch of Davids slaying Goliath ...

AirAsia A Major Breakthrough In Relations

A truce usually means it is good for both parties. So why isn't AirAsia (5099) share price reacting in positive fashion? Is this the Friday-weekend effect? Whereby investor tend to lower risk appetite or is it a case of waiting for someone to take the lead? Looking at some of the argument presented by TF and as well as Airports in their battle o...

JAKS The Trick Question He Did Not Ask

I was right about JAKS when I second guessed on Monday that KYY himself was hit by margin calls. Not a surprise given that he likes leverage so much. Here is the screen shot of the transactions. For trivial fun facts, the first force sale took place on 20th last Friday while the rally-to-buy poser post Saturday.      Is there more to sell? Unle...

Lay Hong A Trading Opportunity

Lay Hong's (9385) share price tumble in the last two days is something which has not gone unnoticed by lots of people. The sharp price drop on unprecedented high volumes are attention grabbing variables.  What I can gather so far for a quick response to this developing story. Innofarm Sdn Bhd or the Yap's family private vehicle is the major shar...

Frontken Blue Skies Ahead On New Highs Territory

Here is another quick take on a stock which I have been following for a while. Frontken (0128) is once again testing its beginning of the year and all time high back then of 52/52.5sen. Despite it not disappointing the market on the earnings front, the stock fell. That was due however to the sector wide sell off.  Stocks at hit new highs usuall...

Scomi Group Who Is Ts(h)e

Did Scomi (7158) get the right or wrong guy for its CEO position?  If you are wondering why I asked that question, the next two images will give you an idea. A couple of insider trading cases from HK involving Sammy. I believe the Courts upheld the orders subsequent to the appeal filed by all the defendants in the case.  https://legalref.judici...

PMetal Needs Just Another Dime Or So to Breakout

PMetal (8869) is just one dime or so away from technically reversing its YTD downtrend. Stock headed south soon after Trump's trade war on steel and aluminum. It has fallen by nearly 24 percent from this year's and all time high of RM5.78. I think it looks interesting against the backdrop of a much improved and higher risk appetite in the local ...

JAKS A Buy (Support) Call From A Hard Pressed Major Sharholder

Rallying the market for support. This is how I see his (KYY) latest post on JAKS . http://koonyewyin.com/2018/07/21/why-jaks-share-price-is-dropping-and-how-you-can-take-advantage/ Key cues to my thesis that he is rallying the people to buy JAKS are the 3 pertinent questions (Have you lost faith in JAKS, Is it still worthwhile to buy at this ch...

MNRB The Rights Issue Dilemma

MNRB's (6459) share price is devoid of dividend yield (not because it won't but can't). Due to regulatory requirements on capital adequacy and claims reserving as its insurance business surges, it has not been able to pay dividends since 2014. BNM and other regulatory requirements meant that its operating subsidiaries were unable to upstream div...
