DIGI. What's up.?

DIGI making big moves these few days, from 4.90 to 5.30 ...
There has been talk on capital repayment of putting RM509m + RM495m back into the shareholder's pocket but the exercise date has yet to be determined ..
Dividing the amount over 7,775m shares, that works out 6.5 sen + 6.4 sen

Coupled with the estimated regular dv of 6sen x 4 quarters = 24 sen, the whole thing amounts to 37 sen
Yield = 37 / 530 = 7 percent
Analysts are generally positive on DIGI growth prospect and earnings despite intense competition.

Let's watch other telcos ...

Telcos. Digi. Maxis.

Looks like there's no stopping Digi as its share prices continue to edge up in the month of August. After a two weeks climb from RM4.50 at the beginning of the month,  the share settled at RM5.00 per piece with a gain of 50 sen or  more than 11 percent.
I'm amazed by the ascent : in such a rapid movement of almost 1 percent per day session that I quickly accumulated Digi shares, almost daily ...

What if you have missed out on this mini rally in Digi ..?
Buy some now but be prepared to average down if market turns against you ...

Maxis share prices made similar decent gain of 40 sen ( more than 6 percent <= 6.80/ 6.40) in the same two weeks period ... Phew I was right about this one when I asked some friends to buy at RM6.30 - 6.40 range and hold ...
Maxis is expected to announce its earning next week. If earnings improved with another 8 sen dividend, then watch it surpass RM 7.00 mark. Else share price may tumble.
And that's when we will be picking the shares again ...

Watch other telcos : TM and Axiata ...

Yikes. Can't believe this is happening ...

Buy. Maxis. GenM.

Maxis (nta 108, QQeps 7.3/ 7.2/ 12/ 7.6 sen) share price tumbled to RM6.30 after report of AK disposal of 5% stake in the company..
While it's not cheap with PE of 18, its dividend yield is very attractive at 6.4 %
For those who have missed out buying while it was RM 5.70 on Feb 7th, now is the time to buy some and hold for a year or two... This stock is especially for those who're thinking about investing in unit trust or buying into dividend yielding stocks..

Buy at 3 levels: RM 6.30/ RM 6.00/ RM 5.70
Don't worry too much about the downside, I repeat from my Feb 7th posting, the 40 sen dividend will bring your staggered buying cost to RM 5.90/ RM 5.60/ RM5.30 after one year..
Its lowest since IPO is approx RM 5.20

If you're using Maxis as your cellphone carrier or 3G, you should buy own some Maxis shares.
I asked friends who use Maxis mobile to own some shares and earn some dividend. To pay for their bills as it's a win-win scenario..
Same for those who uses DIGI, buy the Digi shares and earn the dividend to pay the bills. Sane logic, if you're supporting the business why not own part of it...?

I've been right about buying DIGI with TM all the way from RM 3.30 to 4.00 (TM currently about RM6.00 per share).
Telco share prices are usually slow moving but they do trend up. I can't guarantee Maxis will fly like TM or DIGI but over the long term, it's not possible to lose money on this one.
By the way, if you fancy regional telco try my favourites ; Singtel and Telstra ...

GenM (223, QQeps 5.5/ 6.1/ 6.2/ 4.8sen) trading around RM 3.30 with PE of 15
With more than RM 1 billion profit every year, it has plenty of cash in its coffer either to do acquisition, RPT (unfavorable) or reward its shareholder (maybe generously on one fine day.!)..
Why would I buy..?
It's the profitability, earnings predictability and gaming assets in the UK that interest me...

Very Basics of Good Company

What companies interest Remnant the most ..?
1. Earnings stability (or predictability)
2. Dividends ( or growth )
In summary, companies that are profitable and rewards its shareholders with growth or dividends

Two very basic criteria of good companies:
1). Companies whose earnings are positively stable or predictable...
It's wonderful to have companies making profits quarter after quarter and year after year
growing and adding to its cash pile
2). Companies who will use its profits/ cash to grow/expand its business ( capital expenditures or capex ) and whenever not possible, reward its shareholders with the cash as dividend..
It's great to know that the company that you've invested in is on a growth trajectory.
Yet when that is not possible, it's nice to know that they will be generous enough to pass it on to their shareholders ...

Final Moments of Life

TAOYUAN, Taiwan (AP) - The photographer gingerly places a small, mixed-breed puppy on a platform in his make-shift studio at an animal shelter in northern Taiwan. The dog looks about 2 months old, with alert, trusting eyes and a shiny black coat.
Mr Tou Chih-kang captures expressions, personality. He creates the kind of photos that any pet owner would love to have.
This puppy has no owner and will not get one. Once its photo shoot is over, it will be taken away by vets to be put down.
Mr Tou has been recording the last moments of canines at the Taoyuan Animal Shelter for two years. He has captured the images of some 400 dogs, most of which were pets abandoned by their owners. To him the work is distressing, but he's trying to spread a message of responsibility.

Felda Global Ventures. Heard on the streets

By Cynthia Koons and Duncan Mavin
Young palm oil trees can be about three-feet tall with bunches of leafy palms sticking out on top. It's not easy for them to sneak up on you. Yet at Malaysia's state-run plantation company Felda Global Ventures Holdings Bhd. (5222.KU), the cost of planting trees was partly to blame for a surprising drop of about 50% in first quarter net profit.

The timing of such bad news is disconcerting given Felda's just raised $3.1 billion in the world's second largest initial public offering this year after Facebook Inc.'s (FB) ill-fated share listing. The profit slip marks a sharp contrast from the IPO prospectus, which promoted the group's expertise as the world's third-largest palm oil plantation operator in the world. Underwriters also talked up demand, citing a 4.2% rise this year in global consumption of edible oil and fats--one of palm oil's main uses. That hasn't meant much for Felda so far. First quarter revenue barely budged, rising just 1.8% from last year.

There can be few excuses for such poor foresight. A plantation company should know how much it costs to plant trees. Felda also said it had to pay a higher-than-expected price for crude palm oil. But given that's their business, it's hard to see how they couldn't have anticipated this sooner.

There's another reason to question Felda's growth story. The group's trees are older than competitors' on average, which makes them lower yielding. That explains why they're planting new ones.

Tuesday's profit drop raises questions about Felda's credibility at a critical time too. The company's shares will debut on the Malaysian stock exchange two days from now. They priced near the top of the range the company had been looking for, defying a tough market for IPOs globally, Felda sold its deal thanks to abundant demand from institutional buyers. But they won't hang around if the company keeps delivering unwanted surprises.

RBA cuts growth outlook as economy softens

The Reserve Bank of Australia has cut its growth and inflation forecasts as non-mining sectors struggle under the weight of a high Australian dollar. 

In forecasting marginally lower growth rate of 3 per cent for 2012 and 2013, the RBA has signalled that earlier predictions were overly optimistic.  The central bank's latest quarterly statement on monetary policy comes three days after it cut the official cash rate by 50 basis points because of lower inflation and the need to stimulate parts of the economy.
"Although three months ago a range of indicators were suggesting that economic growth was close to trend, the outcome for 2011 as now reported was, in fact, somewhat weaker than that," the statement said.  In the previous statement, issued in February, the economy had been forecast to grow at 3 to 3.5 per cent.
Federal Treasurer Wayne Swan says the statement indicates Australia's economy is strong, and he remains committed to delivering a budget surplus next week.
"We've got contained inflation, we've got solid growth, we've got growth around trend, and we've got record levels of mining investment," Mr Swan said.

"Now this is in stark contrast, as the Reserve Bank points out, to conditions in most other developed economies." The Reserve Bank expects employment growth to "remain subdued" in the near term and has cited the high Australian dollar as a key pressure
"There is the possibility that in the near term, labour shedding across a range of industries outside of the mining sector accelerates as firms continue to adjust to the high exchange rate, weaknesses in the property market and the effects of weaker public demand." And as the dollar bites, Prime Minister Julia Gillard has announced plans to hold an economic forum in June to discuss the economic impact of the strong currency.
The Reserve Bank also pointed to a subdued housing market and says "a recovery in housing construction is unlikely in the near term".
"What remains is for buyers to reach a point where they have sufficient confidence to commit to contracts for construction of new dwellings and for the supply side of the housing market to be responsive to demand," the RBA said....   ABC business editor Peter Ryan and staff

Is it time to cash out ..?

Ringgit has strengthen against USD from 3.60 in the last 3 - 5 years to the current 3.06 as shown in the first chart.
Manufacturers who export/sell their goods in US dollars, repatriate their profits to Malaysia will get less Ringgit now and these are reflected in their earnings. So a weak dollar is negative for exporters.

For foreign investor holding US dollars three years ago when Ringgit was weak and Malaysian equities were cheap, it was the near perfect time to ploughed your money in.
Now if you invert the chart, you would see it as a typical pattern of most stock market charts, forming a double top. Is this the end of the super bull run or will it pull back violently before the next upleg ..?

TSH Plantation.

The Edge did an article on TSH and this is what I gathered:
TSH has landbanks totalling 98,453 ha, out of which 95.5 5 % ( 94,003 ha ) is in Indonesia and 4,450 ha is in Sabah.
37 % (ie., 36,400 ha ) of the landbanks in Indonesia has been planted with 30 % ( ie., 10,920 ha ) reaching maturity, leaving 70 % of the trees yet to reach maturity.
Total planted areas = approx. 41,000 ha
As ending 2011, TSH reported trees in the landbanks as 47 % immature ( < 4 years ), 26 % young mature ( 4 to 6 years ), 15 % mature prime 1 ( 7 to 15 years ), 12 % mature prime 2 ( 16 to 25 years )
TSH has 22.3 % share in Innoprise Plantation which has 12,619 ha plantation land in Sabah and is 51 % owned by Yayasan Sabah.

TSH is projecting strong growth in the near future:
2008 FFB = 198,190 mt ( incl. Indonesian 66,290 mt )
2011 FFB = 399,600 mt ( incl. Indonesian 259,500 mt , CAGR 52%)
2012 prediction FFB = 485,100 mt. 2013 prediction FFB = 608,800 mt. 2014 prediction 723,800 mt

TSH did a bonus issue in Dec 2011 and adjusting for that (nta 104, Q/Q 2.9/ 4.4/ 4.2/ 3.2).
It is now trading at RM 2.34 with P/E 16 which is on the high range
