Investor 9999 Jftech for FY 2017 ended 30 June, reported a turnover of RM24.7 million and a profit before tax of RM6.964 million and a profit after tax of RM 6.379 million. The EPS for the year was 5.06 Sen and the latest Q4 EPS was 1.72 Sen.
At current share price of RM2.06, it has a market capitalisation of RM 253 million. For a company having a net profit of RM6.379 and the market is valuing it at RM253 million. My opinion it is grossly overvalued. If you have a sober mind, would you buy such small Co, Jftech for RM253 million and wait 39.7 years to get back the amount you paid for your investment in the Co assuming there is no growth in net profit on the extreme pessimistic stand.
Ask yourself, is Jftech a world leader in its field of business (with no competitors around) with superior technology advancement or advancement in its field of business for market to give it a valuation of PE 39.7. Further below, I would compared it with FoundPac.
Will Warren Buffet or any prominent private like Navis Capital or The Blackstone Group or other re-owned international fund buy Jftech at this valuation? My answer is no for any astute investors who is worth his salt. Why pay so high for the future and it is not proven yet.
Owner and key directors had sold 4.055 million share ranging from 1.44 to 210 from 1 June to 6 Oct. See my list attached. If stakeholders are selling, it must reached their fair value. Why then should we hold
I have look at the list of substantial shareholders in the Annual Report for 2016 and 2017. There was no institution shareholder in 2016. However in 2017, the institutions shareholders were Kenanga Growth Fund (2 mil shares) and Philip Capital (610 shares). There are no other big name. I do not know both institution entry price. I can only said prior to 3 April, the share price was 88 Sen and below. Subsequently it went up all the way till now at 2.06 with frenzy goreng.
Comparing to FoundPac for FY 2017 ended 30 June, FPG reported a turnover of RM40.0 million (Jftechfast=RM24.7 million) and a profit before tax of RM13.0 million (Jftech =RM7.0 million) and a profit after tax of RM 10.22(Jftech =RM 6.379 million). FPG EPS for the year was 2.92 Sen (Jftech = 5.06 Sen) and FGPe latest Q4 EPS was 0.8 Sen (Jftech=1.72 Sen). Jftech figure in bracket.

I am not promoting FPgroup but just a comparison

It is also a thinly traded counter.

Megaknight 9999, thanks for the good analysis
10/10/2017 07:51
Megaknight I think the company will have a better result in FY2018 and expect the US legal case to have a favourable outcome. With lower share price due to the bonus issue, the share appears to have more upside than downside. However the key question is the high PE.

08/11/2017 23:30
Thomas Pang 9999, I disagree you on certain things

"Will Warren Buffet or any prominent private like Navis Capital or The Blackstone Group or other re-owned international fund buy Jftech at this valuation? My answer is no for any astute investors who is worth his salt. Why pay so high for the future and it is not proven yet. "

I personally view Warren Buffett has a horrible track record of investing in technology companies because his philosophy is never touch technology counters. He lost billions in a fallen giant IBM and only started investing in Apple in 2016, way too late for a legendary like him and if he smart,he should have invested in Apple in 2007 when the Iphone came out, not 2016 and also Google, Amazon, microsoft when satya nadella take control or even facebook, but he didn't. He himself also admitted he was stupid for not investing in Amazon and Amazon now has a PE of nearing 300

Navis' philosophy is only invest in consumer and retails, technology is not on their cards. Even if there is a technology counter with very attractive number and metric, they are also not going to touch it.

instead of basing metric to determine technology counter, I personally think is much better to learn how to view technology counter from Don Valentine, Marc Andressen or even Ashton Kucher to see how they look at things. Adopting philosophy from people who don't invest in technology like Warren Buffett to evaluate technology counter is seriously flawed

Alex™ http://www.marketwired.com/press-release/jury-awards-johnstech-international-636k-in-test-contactor-patent-infringement-case-2175065.htm

The writing is one-sided. But at least it gives a picture from JTI's perspective. Triple damage, if realised, may have a short term severe impact to to JFTECH's performance.

I also want to invest in a good patent protected company. I'm finding a good price entry and hope that JFTECH will stand strong for the time ahead.

Investor 9999 Sales growth from FY 2015 to 2016 from RM 19.02 mil to RM 24.67 (ie 30% growth). Q1 18 compared to Q4 17 growth in sales is 5% (growth for last 3 qts range from 5% to 10%). it is not a quantum leap Co to deserve a high forward PE 26.2

Profit of the Co for last FY 2017 and 2016 had been pull down by the legal cost incurred to defend infringement of patent in US court. Q1 2018 cost was minimal and resulted in it reported a higher net profit of RM 2.3 mil with Q1 EPS of 1.8 Sen

I have projected the FY 2018 EPS to grow by 30% (aggressive growth projection) using Q1 2018 EPS as a base. (1.84X4X 130%) to be 9.57 Sen. With PE 15 to 18, my JFTech valuation range from 143 to 172 at max.

Comparing to its current price of 205, it is far overvalued.

The share price of JFTech is just being manipulate by operators of funds holding it by buying a few lots to hold the price. Like today, 99.2K shares traded, the price push up 14 Sen,

Invest at your own peril
15/12/2017 10:50
Edwardong53 Looks like any one is interested in JFTech even though its bonus issue of 2:3 to be ex on 27/12/2017. My main worry is the litigation on patent infringement which will be heard on Jan2018.
