GeniusTinker FY 2018 will go back to 2.00

ccmeow Top grove's entry into condom market will not affect the business of Karex.If Top grove enter, it will have take many years and to do lots of hard work, before they can produce condom of the
same quality. So , all the friends out there, please do not fear if Top grove is going into condom business. Cheers!

teoct Tan Sri Arshad just dumped in about RM 725,000 for 500,000 shares (assume bought at 1.45). He is the Chairman, and I am sure he gets inside info on the performance of the company, otherwise why dump in 725k. Say, keep at bank will give 15,000 at interest of 3%pa.
11/09/2017 13:34

Goldmann He added 3,400,000 shares since price drop below 2. If assume the average price is 1.50, he spent about 5 million ringgit for past 3 months.

omightycap No doubt KAREX is still a downtrend stock. We recommend you to take profit if you followed us entering @ RM1.38. At the current price is a 20 cents profits or a 14.5% gain in merely a couple of days!

12/09/2017 11:24
teoct Yes, Tan Sri has spent much money. Now why would he do that? Below maybe a clue.

Just read today that Malaysia is the 5th largest producer of natural rubbber (latex). Biggest is Thailand. And if one read the quarterly report, Karex had set-up a new company in Thailand (Sept 2016) that will be involved in pre-vulcanised latex. This may take about another 2 years to materialized, i.e. mid 2019. What is pre-vulcanised latex, the raw latex collected from the trees is processed with additives to make the latex conducive for the formation of whatever products (glove, condom, cathether, etc). Of course the type of additive is a trade secret to Karex. (Hence, Topglove will have to go through many iterations before getting it right)

Now Malaysia does not produce enough latex and have to import. Thus, Karex, by going up-stream would secure the latex to the specification it need. And save some money too. Hence in the near future (3 years), the profit margin should improve if all other factors remain the same.

12/09/2017 14:52
teoct Also, as the world largest manufacturer of condom (6 billion pieces/year) and only using 4 billion now, there is spare capacity to quickly capture any urgent jobs as well as flexibility to ease in new orders. And as most if not all capital expenditure already used to expand to 6 billion capacity, going forward, there will be lower start-up, testing (new equipment) costs, hence, margin should improve too.

Hoe Weng Banker is inside and boss also got keep accumulate. Recently, there are a lot of catalysts that made this counter actively trade, they are the attractiveness of the price of this counter, Federal reserve rate is going to hike which will lead to stronger USD, as well as the acquisition move that made by TOPGLOVE which made a lot of glove counters or rubber related counters kena goreng by the bankers due to this golden opportunity.
