In technical analysis, history repeats itself. The theory behind chart pattern is based on this assumption. The idea is that certain patterns repeat many times, and that these patterns signal a certain high probability move in a stock. Based on the historic trend of a chart pattern setting up a certain price movement, look for these patterns to identify trading opportunities. Follow the smart money; they sell, you follow sell, not buy.

In Dow theory, the primary trend is the major trend of the market, which makes it the most important one to determine. This is because the overriding trend is the one that affects the movements in stock prices. The primary trend will also impact the secondary and minor trends within the market.

To average down or not?

  • In practice, Jesse Livermore would have traded with the trend, against the “s-uckers” who were trying to average down.
  • Since the stock price was falling, he would have sold it short and, as the price continued to fall, he would have pyramided his position.

I'm bearish on IndoAgri and expect the share price to hit interim TP @ S$0.35, i.e. the chart dated 22 Jan 2016 is still valid.

I bought IndoAgri @ S$0.445 near the bottom in a "meltdown" on 3rd Dec 2008.

After a V-shaped rebound (from Oct 2008 to Dec 2010), IndoAgri collapsed again in a slow and steady manner (from S$2.92 to S$0.45 as at 19 Apr 2017, see IndoAgri's monthly chart below); I did not re-enter (long) because it hit a last low of S$0.40 on 28 Jan 2016.

As a rule of thumb or  in technical analysis, when a stock is in a bear-market territory, the last low will be retested and the share price will move much further down, forming a new record low.

Indofood logs 11% profit rise in Q1

Higher palm oil sales lift Indonesia's largest food conglomerate

By Wataru Suzuki
28 April 2017

JAKARTA -- Indofood Sukses Makmur, Indonesia's largest food company, said on Friday net profit for the January-March quarter rose 11% year-on-year to 1.2 trillion rupiah ($90 million) thanks to better palm oil sales.

Revenue grew 8% to 17.83 trillion rupiah. Its core consumer branded products division, which includes instant noodles, milk, snacks and seasonings, posted a 6% increase in revenue and 16% rise in net profit. Analysts attributed the rise to higher selling prices of instant noodles.

In a news release, Indofood's President and Chief Executive Officer Anthoni Salim said the division outpaced growth in the overall market despite "increasing competition and weaker market demand."

Indofood's Singapore-listed agribusiness unit, Indofood Agri Resources, saw net profit jump 80% to 170 billion rupiah thanks to the rise of crude palm oil production as well as higher average selling prices. Indofood Agri controls plantations in Indonesia's Sumatra and Kalimantan.

Indofood's shares opened slightly higher on Friday morning before most of the gains were pared. Analysts have said consumer spending in Indonesia has yet to show signs of a major recovery, and that Indofood's earnings in the short term are likely to be determined by the fluctuation in commodity prices such as palm oil, wheat and skim milk.

On April 26, Indofood announced the sale of its remaining 29.94% stake in Chinese vegetable processing company China Minzhong Food for 235.5 million Singapore dollars ($168 million). The return on the China Minzhong investment has been lower than expected, the company said, and the sale will enable it to "further strengthen its financial position."

In-house stock analysts' persistent BUY calls and price targets on Ezion were unanimously wrong (2 Jun 2014 to 22 May 2015)

WHY?

Because these in-house stock analysts are employees of their respective brokering firms and they must "toe the line".

An article written by Andre Wheeler on Ezion dated 13 July 2015 always reminds me to read ALL in-house analysts reports with "a pinch of salt".

Ezion Holdings: Hollow man or how inattention to industry fundamentals can kill ~ 13 July 2015
http://splash247.com/hollow-man-or-how-inattention-to-industry-fundamentals-can-kill/

In technical analysis, a stock that has made a new low is one that must be treated with caution and to be avoided buying for longterm investment.

Ezion ~ Bearish AB = CD

Ezion last closed with a black marubozu @ S$0.197 and had been suspended since 10 Aug 2017.



Should Ezion shareholders keep the faith?

Firm is 'ready to rumble' but the outcome of its bite-the-bullet plan hinges on lenders' goodwill

By Anita Gabriel
24 August 2017

WE all recognise that "good guy" in the boxing arena, enduring back-to-back jabs whom underdog-fans faithfully root for even as he staggers to the ground after a powerful upper cut from his opponent. Remember how we'd anxiously hope he would tap into his inner might, get up and punch back and knock his rival out of the ring?

That's how some may feel about Singapore-listed Ezion Holdings and its bout with a brutal oil slump that has left many of its peers in the offshore and marine space flat on the floor, flailing.

Those sentiments were manifested over a week ago when Asia's biggest liftboat operator disclosed a disastrous set of second-quarter results.

It was harder to stomach because this company had tried so valiantly to stand its ground since oil prices plumbed to lows in 2014 and, only now, seems most vulnerable when the commodity is on recovery.

Over a week ago, Ezion reported a second-quarter loss of US$2.57 million from a net profit of US$8.14 million a year ago this is its third straight quarter of being in the red with the chief culprits being depressed utilisation rates of its service rigs and offshore support vessels and weak charter rates.

There were blaring red flags - cash on hand has slid to US$94 million and operating cash inflow turned into an outflow of US$2.4 million. With borrowings of some US$1.5 billion and banks wary of taking on more risk given the soured loans in the oil and gas sector, the potential knock-on effect on Ezion's financing abilities - not immediately but eventually - very swiftly turned into a real worry.

But Ezion, majority owned by low-key and able chief executive Chew Thiam Keng, who built the firm up from a languishing electrical company in 2007 and not long after turned it into a thriving provider of offshore marine services to the oil and gas sector, did not let investors sit with that fear alone. It also imbued some hope, just a little but good enough - for now.

On Aug 14, the day of the results release, it called for a mandatory trading suspension (trading in its shares were halted since Aug 10). Shortly after, Ezion told shareholders about a make-it-or-break-it survival plan, which essentially involved talking to lenders (and maybe, also bondholders) to reform its financing and capitalisation structure.

"The exercise took the market by surprise as Ezion is seen as one of the 'last men standing' among SGX-listed asset owners in the O&G space, given its strong market positioning, positive operating cash flow (up to first quarter 2017) and decent cash balance," said DBS Group Research.

The outcome of Ezion's bite-the-bullet plan could take several months and hinges on goodwill from lenders and for believers, a Hail Mary, as Ezion itself somewhat admitted to when it asked for shareholders' "understanding and prayers" to achieve a favourable outcome.

Up to now, Ezion and its chief have done just about all they could given the hard times.

Last year, Mr Chew and wife, who is also a shareholder, ploughed a substantial amount of money into the company under a cash call. Based on data from Spiking, a home-grown app that tracks stock trades by sophisticated investors, Mr Chew has not sold any shares since 2014 - the year of the oil price crash.

In fact, he scooped up some four million Ezion shares between December 2014 and August last year between S$1.175 and 22 Singapore cents apiece.

Given that the counter was last traded at 19.7 Singapore cents, can there be better comfort than the fact that Ezion's fate partly lies in the hands of a reliable steward with skin in the game who had stood by the stock over and over again?

There were other endeavours. Earlier in the year, Ezion found breathing space when it negotiated a repayment plan with banks to match the cash flow of its rigs. In February, it inked a pact with one of China's largest state-owned power firms to diversify its income stream to offshore wind farms.

So, don't be mistaken. Ezion has not fallen it has not defaulted on debt nor is troubled like Swiber Holdings, Ezra Holdings or Nam Cheong.

This is Ezion fighting or as they call it in the boxing world, "ready to rumble" - the debt talks are pre-emptive in the event its cash position remains under pressure beyond three or four quarters.

But it's a "precarious" situation nevertheless, says UOB Kay Hian analyst Foo Zhiwei in a recent report. "A failure to get banks and bond-holders to agree to a debt deal could put the company in severe financial strain by next year, which could have dire consequences on its survivability," he added.

And so, for the sake of Ezion, a clear favourite in the offshore and marine space, may the best man win.

Tat Hong Holdings - OCBC Investment 2017-09-20: Cease Coverage

Tat Hong Holdings - OCBC Investment 2017-09-20: Cease Coverage TAT HONG HOLDINGS LTD T03.SI
Tat Hong Holdings - Cease Coverage

Tower Crane Rental segment growing.
Soft outlook.
Prolonged concern on overall recovery.



Mixed performance thus far

Over the past few years, industry players had been facing market weakness and competitive pricing pressures, and Tat Hong’s results have also been reflecting a mixed performance across its main business segments (Crane Rental, Tower Crane Rental, Distribution, General Equipment Rental).
Tat Hong’s 1QFY18 results continued to show softness albeit with some bright spots. Revenue was up 1% YoY to S$118.3m and was 7.4% higher QoQ.
All segments except Crane Rental recorded better revenues YoY – Tower Crane Rental (+8%), General Equipment Rental (+25%), and Distribution (+7%), but Crane Rental division was down 17% due to lower rental rates in Singapore, lower activity levels in Batam, and completion of projects in Hong Kong.
As margins were also weaker for the Crane Rental and Tower Crane Rental division, gross profit declined 13% to S$30.4m with a net loss of S$5.1m vs. S$3.6m in 1QFY17, mainly due to an absence of tax benefits for this quarter.


Some positive signs

As of the latest quarter, Crane Rental division accounted for ~27% of overall revenue, with Tower Crane Rental at 22%, General Equipment Rental at 12% and Distribution at 39%. Tower Crane Rental saw strong utilisation rates at ~81% with involvement in projects across the building, infrastructure, transport and power generation sectors.
General Equipment Rental division in Australia saw better utilisation rates with longer hire periods as well as new projects. Distribution revenue had better sales in Australia but lower demand for other markets, while we keep in mind that segment’s contributions can be lumpy.


Ceasing coverage

Management has noted some early signs of improved market sentiments in its key market Australia. The group also expects continued healthy demand in China, which bodes well for the Tower Crane Rental division.
However, weakness in ASEAN countries is likely to continue weighing on performance for its Crane Rental division. Thus against this backdrop, the group will continue with its cost control initiatives and fleet rationalization exercise.
With that said, due to an internal reallocation of resources, we are ceasing coverage on the stock.

In-house stock analysts' persistent BUY calls and price targets on Ezion were unanimously wrong (2 Jun 2014 to 22 May 2015)

WHY?

Because these in-house stock analysts are employees of their respective brokering firms and they must "toe the line".

An article written by Andre Wheeler on Ezion dated 13 July 2015 always reminds me to read ALL in-house analysts reports with "a pinch of salt".

China Hongxing Sports' ex-CEO makes S$20.5m offer to buy company's subsidiaries
THU, SEP 21, 2017 - 9:40 AM
CLAIRE #~@ClaireHuangBT
SINGAPORE-LISTED China Hongxing Sports Limited's former chief executive has made a 100 million yuan (S$20.5 million) offer to acquire the company's operating subsidiaries.

The purchase is carried out through Jiayao Investments Limited, owned by Denis Wu Rongzhao, China Hongxing's former CEO and executive director.

China Hongxing said under the proposed deal, it would dispose off all its businesses in China held under Profitstart Group Limited.

In a filing to the Singapore Exchange on Thursday morning, the company said the 100 million yuan package comprises 28 million yuan in cash, which is intended to be made available for distribution to minority shareholders only.


The Wu family comprising Wu Hanjie, Wu Rongguang, and Denis Wu, will renounce their rights to receive any dividend arising from the distribution of the cash consideration. The Wu family holds about 33 per cent of China Hongxing. The renounced dividends will be up to 9.24 million yuan.

SEE ALSO: Ex-China Hongxing CEO offers 100m yuan for operating units

There will also be a waiver by Mr Denis Wu and Mr Wu Rongguang of all the monies owed to them by China Hongxing, amounting to some 64.4 million yuan.

As at the date of the agreement, the buyer has paid the cash consideration in Singapore dollars into an escrow account held by a Singapore law firm acting as the escrow agent.

Alfred Cheong, independent director and chairman of the audit committee of China Hongxing said: "There is finally some light at the end of the tunnel for minority shareholders since the voluntary suspension of China Hongxing in 2011. As the efforts to resume the trading of the company's shares were not successful, this proposed disposal potentially offers some closure for minority shareholders, especially since the company faces a possible delisting.

"After the completion of the proposed disposal, the company will become a clean listed shell, which will be available for a reverse takeover in future."

The Matthew effect: What seems high will go higher, what seems low will go lower.

Two important rules in trading:
  • Never catch a falling knife.
  • Buy the dips in an uptrend, sell the rallies in a downtrend.


A falling knife in the stock market refers to a stock that experiences a sharp decline and it may collapse 50% to 90% from its breakout/pivotal point, before bottoming out.

Broker's take: DBS Group Research flags upside potential for Singtel

By Tan Hwee Hwee
2 Oct 2017

DBS Group Research flagged potential upside to Singtel's share price, noting a valuation discount on the telco's shares versus its regional peers.

In its Oct 2 research note, DBS stated that despite about 38 per cent rise in the valuation of regional telco stocks over the last three years, Singtel has been flattish perhaps due to mounting losses in its digital businesses.

But it highlighted an official guidance from Singtel for narrower digital losses for FY18 as well as the telco's digital advertising arm achieving an earlier-than-expected earnings break-even.

"Singtel's core plus digital business is trading at only 5.6 times of its EV/EBITDA (enterprise value to earnings before interest, tax, depreciation and amortisation multiple) compared to seven times for M1, nine times for StarHub, and 7.5 times regional telco average," the research note stated.

Instead of bundling the core and digital businesses together, which will lead to a lower EV/EBITDA multiple, the research note argued that investors ought to value the core business at seven times EV/EBITDA and the digital business separately even as the latter is not profitable yet.

It projected that Singtel could pay special dividends of S$600 million to S$1.5 billion taking forecast FY18 yield to between 6 per cent and 7.5 per cent without breaching a two times net debt to EBITDA ratio.

It valued Singtel at a target price of S$4.30, with a 17 per cent upside compared to the stock's last traded price of S$3.68.

stable and sustainable growth of the US economy, this joint venture will provide Keppel
with a strategic platform to expand its geographic footprint in the US market.
This joint venture is intended to combine Keppel Capital's expertise in investor management,
capital markets, and REIT treasury and financial management together with KBS’ investment and
asset management expertise of over 25 years in US commercial real estate.

REIT Manager, which is subject to and effective on the listing and admission to trading of the units
of Keppel-KBS US REIT on the SGX-ST.
The Purchase Consideration was arrived at on a willing-buyer, willing-seller basis, taking into
account the projected net income before tax of the Keppel-KBS US REIT Manager, asset
management services to be provided by the US asset manager, and future acquisition sourcing
and support by KBS.
6. Financial Effects
The Acquisition is not expected to have any material impact on the earnings per share or net
tangible assets per share of KCL for the current financial year.

If SingTel's support @ S$3.65 breaks down and hit critical support @ S$3.52 with high volume, it's a confirmation of a Bearish Bollinger Bands Breakout.

The most powerful volatility breakout indicator is the Bollinger Bands. Relatively narrow band width can predict a big advance or decline. When volatility expands and a stock or index breaks out of a trading range, it signals a change to a period of higher volatility and a possible directional move.

The significant difference between price crashing down on low volume and price crashing down on high volume
Sometimes, certain signals could only be visible on the chart when the share price starts its unusual / volatile movement (up or down all in a row, with or without volume). Bollinger bands are very powerful technical indicator. When using it as a key indicator, volume is not necessarily required, instead, the breakout (upside or downside) at the upper or lower Bollinger band is more important. Likewise, in a downtrend, volume is not required for a downside breakout at support level. However, in an uptrend, volume is necessary for an upside breakout at resistance level. A price drop (or rise) on high volume all in a row is a stronger signal indicating that something in the stock has fundamentally changed.

Example (2) of a Bearish Bollinger Bands Breakout : COASTAL



Example (3) of a Bearish Bollinger Bands Breakout : OSK

Warren Buffett: "The single most important decision in evaluating a business is pricing power. If you’ve got the power to raise prices without losing business to a competitor, you’ve got a very good business. And if you have to have a prayer session before raising the price by 10%, then you’ve got a terrible business."

Falling prices force a rethink of telco stocks ~ 11 Sep 2017

  • The problem facing stocks in the sector now is a lack of pricing power leading to margin pressures both in fixed line and mobile. Ultimately the only conclusion is that the companies are selling a commodity (data) and the price of that commodity will continue to fall.
  • When you compare the business model of a telco to that of a mining company there are actually quite a few similarities: both have high capital expenditure requirements, whether building mines or building networks, and both have limited control over the commodity they sell.
