Easy result only la
Go study the quarter report , you can see few quarters , the company profit down and down
02/05/2017 01:36
sheldon the downtrend could be mainly due to demand & supply. Amanah Saham dumping thousands in an illiquid counter will drive it down. I hope & think it's not because of the performance.

hewusana 5 % cents for the dividend slightly better than fd
27/06/2017 07:24
ys2k been monitoring this stock for years still didnt buy due to the revenue going downtrend since 2013 until now, last result get about the same revenue compare to last year, and net profit dropped almost 45% year over year.

quarter profit sometime go higher and sometime go lower on raw material price, currency exchange, cost operation and etc...

from the business model we can conclude the business is steady but didn't growth (constantly revenue maintain around 220m for past 5 years). with current price RM5 and PE22 which i would assume the current price is fully reflected with latest financial result. to me it is still expensive to give high PE on no-growth company.

people who like to collect dividend might like this stock because it giving 5% dividend. despite management given 25cents dividend since year 2013, we also need to consider whether how high chance would this company doing better in future? That is another question to answer what is the main barrier the revenue been constantly maintain about the same since 5 years ago? How would it be different in next coming year?

ys2k there is one more note in the quarter report
"On 7 April 2017, Apollo Food Industries (M) Sdn Bhd (“AFI”), a wholly owned subsidiary of Apollo
Food Holdings Berhad, received a Writ of Summon from Mondelez Europe GMBH (“Mondelez”),
which intends to restrain AFI from selling one of their products on the basis that such product
infringes the trademark product of Mondelez.
Currently no court trial date has been fixed. The Directors have consulted with legal opinions, and
the Directors are of the view that other than legal professional consultancy fees incurred, the
financial impact that may affect to the Group is currently unknown and the Directors are not aware
of any contractual obligation, guarantee or otherwise which may the Group by the result of this
litigation"

The thing surprise me is that it didn't publish in Bursa's company announcement, i wonder whether is this 'legal' not to announce it earlier. Can anyone tell me? tks!

28/06/2017 06:44
sheldon Bad results - they claim that cost of raw materials has gone up.

As far as I know, commodity prices like sugar and CPO have trended down a lot.

May be it's the dollar climb that has impoverished all of us - TQ politicians!

sheldon Buy at today's price of 5.10 & stand to make an annual dividend yield of 9.8% - Is this not good enough??

Buy at today's price of 5.10 & stand to make an annual dividend yield of 9.8% - Is this not good enough??

At 5.10 with dividend of 25sen, dividend yield is 0.25/5.10% = 4.90%
06/07/2017 11:12
sheldon Posted by ckkhen - At 5.10 with dividend of 25sen, dividend yield is 0.25/5.10% = 4.90%

Don't forget that since dividend is paid in 6 months and yield is expressed on a per annum basis, hence 4.9 x 2 = 9.8%
06/07/2017 15:54
sheldon A weak MYR is supposed to be good for Apollo. Extract of 31 Oct 2015 quarterly ....

"The Group’s pre-tax profit for the current quarter ended 31 October 2015 has increased by
RM7.468 million to RM14.491 million from RM7.023 million in the quarter ended 31 October 2014.
The increase in net profit was due to foreign exchange gain on the depreciation of Ringgit
Malaysia against USD dollar."

But now it's singing a different tune. Extract of the latest quarterly ....

The Group’s pre-tax profit had decreased by RM1.499 million from RM5.756 million in the
preceding quarter to RM4.257 million in this quarter. This was mainly due to higher operating costs
and lower foreign exchange gain incurred in this quarter.

ys2k sheldon, the dividend is paid in 6 months, doesn't mean you will get it twice in a year.

Example:
Announced date: 23 Jun 2017
Ex Date: 08-Dec-2017

That is assuming you hold it until 08-dec to entitled the dividend. Once you get the dividend, most likely you will get your next dividend on next year 08-Dec-2018.

If you look at the dividend history, the dividend is only distributed once a year
https://klse.i3investor.com/servlets/stk/annent/6432.jsp

DY 4.90% is the correct figure.
10/07/2017 10:35
sheldon We can agree to disagree but my finance background tells me that money has a time value and yields are by convention expressed on a per year basis.
10/07/2017 15:24

Parkson8888 ASB selling non-stop. RM 4 coming?
11/12/2017 22:18
sheldon Maybe ASB needs the money. If that's the case then it's a good buy as down trend of price is not due to concerns about performance. The next quarterly should shed more light into this matter.

The compilation of quarterly EPS above indicates gradual improvement over the last 3 quarters. At least it's still in positive territory.

sheldon declining every quarter and the management keeps repeating the same story i.e. increased cost of raw materials.

They said in the past that they will increase automation to lower cost but looks like getting worse.
