stockistlearner karex recent performance mostly hit by the surge of raw mat price. introduction of new competitors will not give too much of the impact as karex is eyeing on worldwide market and they are in the leading position. even top glove venture into the condom market, they only can chip in after plant is fully setup. that is a year from now.
20/06/2017 14:35
wiki123 what is Karex's total production capacity currently? How many production lines do they have?
20/06/2017 19:22
keng88 Topglove pun nak product condom liao...
20/06/2017 20:29
wiki123 I think the last I read is 6b capacity. Wow, topglove now invest want to get 1b capacity, 17% of Karex using RM30million.
20/06/2017 14:52
carurhead Sell now, the price might drop 1.60 and below. Rubber price has increase first half of this year compare to last year and it increase the cost of raw material and reduce the profit.

Success People see future

Tham Hoe Yean Topglove have better distribution channel all over the world.
20/06/2017 21:08
Bigbull99 People buy more milk powder than buying condoms at the moment.
20/06/2017 21:56
Junichiro The key is the price of raw materials. The same applies to Top Glove.
20/06/2017 22:06
yesyesyes Karex introduce nasi lemak favour .. creative !
20/06/2017 23:57
HamzahB The key is the management.

Top Glove hard at work finding new revenue streams, Karex only know how to introduce stupid condom flavour.
21/06/2017 10:02
Appleby Loh Actually it is good if Karex have new rival. Because they always sleep.
21/06/2017 09:18
Doer any chance going below 1.70...em...
21/06/2017 10:32
deep cut loss.
21/06/2017 10:39
stockistlearner if today cant close back to 1.75, then it has potential go even lower.
21/06/2017 12:00

Ricky Yeo Karex- Where values come from

21/06/2017 20:13
meistsk3134 goodbye karex. done not well how to fight legend lim pek
21/06/2017 20:13
pussycats Karex susah, abang Top Glov masuk buat condom. I buy Karex if Karex PE not high.
21/06/2017 23:16
AK1882 Stupid karex ......diversify your business by manufacture glove...too follow Top glove...give dividend...to shareholders.......and implement buy back company shares scheme......
22/06/2017 01:59
Sebastian Sted Power AK1882, don't like that leh. KAREX can't even make their own condom profitable yet you ask them go do gloves. Later masuk PN17 baru tau
22/06/2017 03:04
Ricky Yeo I think lots of comments here telling Karex what to do are totally non-sensible coming from misguided expectation
22/06/2017 04:49
cooling pe still very very high...better cut
22/06/2017 06:56
Lee Yih Yeong Better buy TopCondom rather than Durex.. Durex condom too expensive , TopCondom will came out with low cost but better quality condom .
22/06/2017 07:28
pussycats Later supermax masukbuat kondom jenama Supercondom, like Topglov buat condom cap Topcondom, baru Karex sedar there are lots of competitor. Karex, your PE= 45 still very high la. karex should earn more to lower its PE lah. :-(
22/06/2017 07:57
Toto2009 Karex is hiring sales manager, either current one not doing well and looking for replacement or business too good they are expanding the team. However their marketing cost have been pile up and very high as they wan to build the brand for their The One
22/06/2017 08:00

22/06/2017 15:55
shpg22 Karex is hiring sales manager that always 'cheong' at prostitute den and spa. Anyone ??
22/06/2017 17:23
pussycats Topglove going to start making kondom. Nex other glov makers will follow suit. Karex is a time bomb with PE42. Dead meat. Mati Kaw-Kaw
22/06/2017 17:51
pussycats Karex better diversify to making rubber shoes lah, or rubber face mask or rubber diving suit or just make rubber tyres la Karex. karex, topglov mahu bersaing dgn awak . Karex tentu nanti untung kurang. Sorry Karex, your future is in your hand now. Sad sad sad
22/06/2017 17:59
shpg22 STRONG SELL. Fair value @ 1.00 , 25 P/E. May downgraded further if Topglove kondom manufacturing goes smoothly.
23/06/2017 15:23

23/06/2017 15:26
pussycats price of Karex still down. Sad sad sad
23/06/2017 15:40

23/06/2017 17:31
Junx Leow cheap condom, raya sale up, after raya gap up.....
23/06/2017 22:38
pussycats tan lucy→ topcondom plant not even build and people think its threat already. an empty land is a threat. wakakakakiki
23/06/2017 17:31

pussycat→ now, this month, topglov will start to send free samples of pilot test condoms to all condom markets worldwide. Apa macam, bukan threat kah? TopGlov doesn't need to build factory yet, but topglov threats are real lah. No wonder Karex price now portray negativ downward trend.
24/06/2017 06:27
shpg22 Stock price is a reflection of future performance. When the future threat is real, get ready for the price movement.
24/06/2017 11:35
pussycats Topglov can make good condoms. Never doubt about it. The so called barriers of entry to make condoms are FALSE. This myths are shattered by Topglov. I wanna cry for Karex. Sad sad sad.
