LB Aluminium has good profit growth - Koon Yew Yin

Author: Koon Yew Yin   |  Publish date: Sat, 17 Apr 2021, 8:20 PM


Recently many investors sold LB Aluminium to buy Glove stocks. As a result, the price of LB Aluminium dropped and Glove stock prices went up. Fortunately, some serious long-term investors took advantage of the buying opportunity to buy at cheaper prices.

In any case, I just want to point out that its EPS for the last 3 quarters were 1.74 sen, 3.76 sen and 5.99 sen as shown on the table below. Based on its EPS growth, its EPS for the next quarter ending April should be better than 5.99 sen.

 

 

China managed to stop the spread of the Covid 19 virus in Wuhan within a few months and all the factories started working full steam ahead.

As a result, China has increased its net import of primary and alloy aluminium to record high in the last 10 years as shown on the above chart.

The chart below shows that the price of aluminium has been going up in the last 1 year. It has gone up about 50% in the last 1 year.

How to avoid the coronavirus? Koon Yew Yin

Author: Koon Yew Yin   |  Publish date: Sat, 17 Apr 2021, 7:42 AM


Yesterday 2 persons living in Golf Vista Condominium, Meru Golf Resort, Ipoh, were tested Covid 19 positive. My sister-in-law and family are living in this block of flats which is about 150 meters away from my house.

Immediately the Golf Resort management sent out circular notice to warn all residents. After I did some research, I am writing this article which you may find useful and like to send it to all your friends to save lives.    

Outbreak and spread of the novel coronavirus  

Since the end of December 2019, a novel coronavirus has been spreading from the Hubei province in China and has reached many countries worldwide. Unlike an epidemic, which is a regionally occurring contagious disease, a pandemic is a worldwide epidemic that is the case of this novel coronavirus, named recently SARS-CoV-2, which causes the disease COVID-19. You can find an overview of the coronavirus-risk areas on the website of the WHO (World Health Organisation).   

The virus spreads typically via small droplets which are spread when a person with COVID-19 coughs or exhales. Another person can then catch the virus by breathing in these droplets or touching objects contaminated by these droplets and then touching its eyes, nose or mouth. The currently known incubation period is maximum of 14 days.

How to reduce the risk of getting infected?

 

1 No handshaking or kissing on the cheeks

Even if it seems rude at first, refrain from shaking hands with each other. Avoid physical contact in general.

2 Clean your hands frequently

Clean your hands with an alcohol-based hand rub or wash your hands thoroughly with soap and water, especially before preparing food, before eating, or when you get home. Always wash your hands after using the toilet or if the hands are visibly dirty.  

3 Keep your hands away from your face

Pathogens can easily pass from the hands to the mucous membranes of the eyes, nose, and mouth. Avoid touching your face.

4 Hygienic coughing and sneezing

When coughing, “hand over mouth” is well intended, but in doing so you catapult a large number of viruses out of your body, which then stick to your hands. So do not cough into your hands, but rather into your sleeve or a tissue.

5 Discard used tissues immediately

Throw used tissues immediately into the trash – preferably into a container with a garbage bag that you can close tightly and dispose of regularly. Then please wash your hands.

6 Ventilate regularly

In closed rooms, the number of viruses in the air can increase dramatically.

Regularly ventilating a room (three to four times a day for ten minutes) counteracts this and thereby reduces the risk of infection.

It also improves the indoor climate and prevents the mucous membranes of the mouth and nose from drying out.

7 Keep your distance and avoid crowds

Keep the greatest possible distance from other people when coughing, at least 1 meter, to avoid breathing in droplets, which could include the novel coronavirus causing COVID-19, if the person is infected.

8 Pay attention to first symptoms

If you have a fever, cough, or difficulty breathing, see a doctor as soon as possible. Important: call beforehand so that you are directed straight to the right health facility and thus avoiding to get in touch with too many people. Follow the directions of your local health authority.

9 Do not share objects

Avoid sharing objects and touching surfaces in public spaces as it is known that the novel coronavirus that causes COVID-19 remains on surfaces. If you think an object may be infected, contaminated, clean it using a surface disinfectant followed by washing your hands.

10 When to use a face mask

The WHO recommends to wear a mask only when you are taking care of a person with suspected COVID-19 infection or when you are coughing or sneezing yourself. In this case the mask is to protect people around you. Always wear a face mask when you are out in public.

I have a dog - Koon Yew Yin

Author: Koon Yew Yin   |  Publish date: Sun, 11 Apr 2021, 8:01 PM


My mother died in 1943 when I was 10 years old and I inherited her blood disease called hyperlipidaemia. My body produces a lot more cholesterol than normal people. In 1983 when I was 50 years old, I had a heart attack and I had heart by-pass surgery done in London. At that time, Mayor Clinic in USA was only the other hospital that could do a heart by-pass surgery. My elder brother and one younger sister who inherited the same blood disease died about 30 years ago. Currently, open heart surgery is so common.  

As far as I can remember, I always have a dog and I must say that having a dog has definitely prolonged my life. I am now 88 years old and I walk and play with my dog for about an hour every evening. My favourite is a Labrador because it is always friendly and responsive.

 

10 Science-Based Benefits of Having a Dog

Unconditional love. Devoted companionship. Constant entertainment. Most of us dog lovers know that life is better with a dog. But is that knowledge based on a feeling—or is there something else at work? There is: Science.

Spending time with canine companions does wonders for your wellbeing. Recent research shows that owning a dog is good for you physically and emotionally. Dogs make us happier, healthier, and help us cope with a crisis—and can even help you get a date. Read on for 10 science-backed benefits of having a dog.

1. Dogs make us feel less alone.

Dogs can be there for you even when people can’t. They offer unconditional love, emotional support, and constant cuddles that help stave off social isolation. A small Australian study discovered that dog ownership reduces loneliness.

A national survey of pet owners and non-pet owners by the Human Animal Bond Research Institute found that 85 percent of respondents believe that interaction with pets reduces loneliness. Most agree that human-pet interactions can help address social isolation.

2. Dogs are good for your heart.

Owning a dog can help you live longer. A comprehensive review of studies published between 1950 and 2019 found that dog owners had a lower risk of death. Studies suggest that dog owners have lower blood pressure levels and improved responses to stress.

Even just living with a dog makes a difference—people who had experienced previous coronary events had an even higher level of risk reduction for death. Research has concluded that the bond between humans and dogs reduces stress, which is a major cause of cardiovascular problems.

3. Dogs help you stop stressing out.

Your canine companion can offer comfort and ease your worries. Multiple studies show that dogs and therapy dogs help alleviate stress and anxiety.

Even just petting a familiar dog lowers blood pressure, heart rate, slows breathing, and relaxes muscle tension. Scientists at Washington State University discovered that just 10 minutes petting a dog can have a significant impact. Study participants had a significant reduction in cortisol, a major stress hormone.

4. Dogs help us cope with crisis

Dogs help us recover psychologically from a crisis. Purdue University’s College of Veterinary Medicine discovered that military veterans with PTSD do better both physiologically and psychologically when they have a service dog. Veterans with a service dog had significantly fewer symptoms of PTSD and showed improved coping skills.

5. Dogs encourage you to move.

Those long treks along sidewalks, trails, and paths add up. A 2019 British study discovered that dog owners are nearly four times more likely than non-dog owners to meet daily physical activity guidelines. Dog owners spend nearly 300 minutes every week walking with their dogs. That’s 200 more minutes walking than people without a pup of their own.

6. Dogs make you more attractive—even virtually.

If you’re looking for a date, it might be time to get a dog. A dog’s presence may make people appear more likeable and attractive.

In a series of studies, men were more likely to get a woman’s phone number when they had a dog with them. In another study, researchers asked individuals to rate people in photographs and found that people looked happier and more relaxed when they appeared with a dog.

A study by Pet Wingman found that men and women swipe right more when they include a profile photo of their pup. Women benefited more than men with dogs in their profiles. (And finding Fido photos on your camera roll shouldn’t be a problem—a study found that 65 percent of dog owners admit to taking more photos of their dog than their significant other.)

7. Dogs make us more social.

Walking with a canine companion can make us more approachable and give people a conversation starter. Think about how many times you’ve talked with other people, whether they’re your neighbours or new friends at the dog park.

Researchers have found that about 40 percent of dog owners had an easier time making friends. Dogs are the perfect way to get to know strangers and form new friendships.

A study at the Cummings School of Veterinary Medicine at Tufts University concluded that people who have a strong attachment to a pet feel more connected in their human relationships and their communities.

8. Dogs are so adorable they make us love them

There’s a reason why puppies are so irresistible: a dog’s facial features possess an “infant schema.” These “social releasers” trigger an innate caregiver response in humans. So the next time you can’t stop watching that dog video, know those big eyes and floppy ears are scientifically appealing.

9. Dogs make us happier

Just looking at a dog can lift your spirits: a 2009 study in Japan found that staring into your dog’s eyes raises your level of oxytocin, also known as the “love hormone.” Besides the general health benefits of owning a dog, they are natural mood boosters. Those with AIDS are less likely to suffer from depression if they own a pet, according to a 2017 study.

10. Dogs help seniors with cognitive function and social interaction

Studies exploring the effects of dogs on seniors found positive results. One study found that pet therapy improves the cognitive function of residents with mental illness in long-term care. Another showed significant decreases in agitated behaviours in seniors with dementia and improved social interactions.

A four-footed best friend provides unconditional love and support, which is especially important during tough times. Though people may think we’re taking care of our canine companions, it’s mutual: Dogs take care of us, and science confirms it.

Pee Wee So true! I never had a dog until last year! At 65, i am ashame to say i have miss out on the joy of having a dog!
She's not a labrador like Grandpa Koon has! In fact she is just a pariah breed, a kampong dog! But boy, she certainly makes my day! I don't walk her because she is very independent, just open the gate and she on her evening walk all by herself! The neighbours seems to warm up to her since she is the unofficial neighbourhood security guard!
The only thing that upset me initially was she proactively fertilize my veges! Anyway, i do fertilize my vege with my own urine, her extra piss and turd perhaps add some extra!
I dont eat my own vege nowadays, i donate to my neighbors!

Sslee It is claimed that the first time the phrase ‘man’s best friend’ was used, was in 1789 by King Frederick of Prussia.

“The only, absolute and best friend that a man has, in this selfish world, the only one that will not betray or deny him, is his DOG.”

Dogs react more strongly to the scent of their owners, the part of the brain associated with enjoyment and positive emotions lit up when they were given their owner's scent. Your loyal dog does recognise you. The same patterns in humans would usually be associated with love.

LB Aluminium is much cheaper than Press Metal & PMB - Koon Yew Yin

Author: Koon Yew Yin   |  Publish date: Sun, 11 Apr 2021, 7:55 PM


LB Aluminium Bhd is a Malaysia based company principally engaged in the business of manufacturing, marketing and trading of aluminium extrusions. Their product acts as a raw material for transport, construction, consumer goods, packaging as well as electrical engineering due to its lightweight, an excellent conductor of electricity and durability in nature. The company has expanded its business across Europe, North America, China, Australia, New Zealand and South-East Asia. Most of the revenue is generated by the company in the domestic market itself.

Press Metal Aluminium Holdings Bhd manufactures and sells extruded aluminium and other aluminium products to customers worldwide. The company operates in two segments based on function. The smelting and extrusion segment, which generates the vast majority of revenue, purchases aluminium scrap and produces extruded aluminium and aluminium alloys to industrial customers. The trading segment markets aluminium products. Press Metal has two customers that each account for over 10% of the firm’s revenue. The majority of Press Metal’s revenue comes from Asia and Europe.

PMB Technology Bhd is principally an investment holding company. The firm is engaged in the manufacturing and/or distribution of access equipment and other aluminium related products and distribution of extruded aluminium profiles and related building materials. The principal activities of the group are: Design, fabrication, and installation of aluminium curtain wall, skylight and facade works, Fabrication and installation of aluminium formwork system, Manufacturing and marketing of aluminium access equipment and Trading and distribution of aluminium related products and building materials. The group manufactures access equipment like ladders and scaffold tower. Majority of the company's revenue is derived from Malaysia.

The chart above shows that the price of aluminium has been going up every month. It has gone up about 50% in the last 1 year.

That is why LB Aluminium share price is shooting up because it is selling so much cheaper than its competitors.

Sslee Aluminium extraction:
Aluminium ore is called bauxite . The bauxite is purified to produce aluminium oxide, a white powder from which aluminium can be extracted. The extraction is done by electrolysis

Billet casting:
To produce these aluminum billets, the process is: melting → casting → billet sawing → aluminum billet

Extrusion:
Aluminum extrusion is a process by which aluminum alloy material is forced through a die with a specific cross-sectional profile. A powerful ram pushes the aluminum through the die and it emerges from the die opening. When it does, it comes out in the same shape as the die,
this process is able to create an unlimited number of complex shapes

Fabrication.
After extrusion fabrication are used to creat aluminium frames.

Press metal
Fully Integrated Operation
From upstream smelting activities to downstream extruding operations, Press Metal is a fully integrated producer of aluminium products. With three smelting plants in Malaysia alone, we have an annual capacity of 760,000 tonnes of primary aluminium production. Our PMB-branded aluminium ingots produced by our Samalaju smelter are listed on the London Metal Exchange as a high-grade primary aluminium product.

Only Pressmetal will benefit from high price of aluminium because only Pmetal have upstream smelting/aluminum extraction activities with cheap electrical cost (hydro power) for electrolysis.

LB need to buy the aluminium ingots to do aluminium extrusion and fribrication

wikioon KYY dont understand the aluminium industry. its very obvious that BIGGEST benefactor is Press Metal because they are in the upstream smelting industry that sells Aluminium as a raw material. Any price increase in LME aluminium is an additional topline benefit to PM.

LBALum and Alcom are just SMALLER extrusion players. Their costing is the aluminium raw material that they buy and extrude into aluminium products. That means their cost is also increasing - their profit and loss depends on the margin they charge on top of their cost. Of course increased demand = increased volume = increased profit (but ALL this are CAPPED).

Why US requires infrastructure development? Koon Yew Yin

Author: Koon Yew Yin   |  Publish date: Fri, 9 Apr 2021, 9:19 AM


US is not really a democratic nation.

There are only 2 political parties, namely Democratic Party with President Joe Biden and Republican Party with former President Donald Trump. There are no other political parties representing the African Americans, the Latino and other minority races. 

The 2 political parties have been debating the amount and the need for infrastructure in the last few parliamentary sessions.

During Donald Trump’s four years in the White House, his administration often held “Infrastructure Week” events and touted transportation improvements. But it was not able to push Congress to pass any broad plan to update the nation’s roads and bridges, rails and airports.

President Joe Biden’s administration and lawmakers in recent weeks have begun laying the groundwork for a long-sought boost to the nation’s roads, bridges and other infrastructure of $2 trillion or more, to be unveiled after Congress approves legislation on COVID-19 relief.

Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg, who has been meeting with lawmakers about the effort, says the aim would be to rejuvenate the post-coronavirus pandemic economy and boost crumbling roads and bridges while encouraging alternative forms of transportation to cars, as well as create thousands of green jobs by making environmentally friendly retrofits and public works improvements.

This is what the American Society of Civil Engineers said. America’s infrastructure is not functioning as it should.

America’s infrastructure has scored near-failing grades for its deteriorating roads, public transit and storm water systems due to years of inaction from the federal government, the American Society of Civil Engineers reports. Its overall grade: a mediocre C-.

In its “Infrastructure Report Card” released Wednesday, the group called for “big and bold” relief, estimating it would cost $5.9 trillion over the next decade to bring roads, bridges and airports to a safe and sustainable level. That’s about $2.6 trillion more than what government and the private sector already spend.

My experience

About 30 years ago, I drove from St Francisco to Los Angles. There were 6 roads for me to choose. All of them were already jammed with traffic and the air was so polluted.   

After 30 years, the 2 political parties are still debating!!!

US should follow China

Implementing high-speed rail (HSR) will provide the Americans with more transportation choices. It will also make sure that the people remain an economic engine, and meets the environmental and energy challenges of this century.

Investing in high-speed rail:

  • Creates Jobs:
    Building high-speed rail will create hundreds of thousands of jobs.  Every $1 billion in investment creates 24,000 jobs. These are highly skilled jobs that will revitalize the domestic rail industries supplying transportation products and services. Many additional jobs are created through the commerce fostered through the economic activity and development which they spark.
  • Increases Economic Activity:
    Every $1 invested creates $4 in economic benefits. Upgrading passenger operations on newly revitalized tracks, bridges and rights of way is spurring business productivity along corridors.  The rail services will connect Americans’ economically vital mega-regions and help keep them mobile, productive, efficient and internationally competitive.
  • Reduces Congestion and Boosts Productivity:
    Congestion on our nation’s roads costs $140 billion in lost time and productivity.  The U.S. population is projected to grow by another 100 million people in the next 40 years. The population growth is creating mega-regions that will not prosper unless they can be freed from the stranglehold of highway and airport congestion. At the same time, the United States cannot build enough highway capacity or airport runways to meet demand.
  • Reduces the Nation’s Dependence on Foreign Oil: 
    Implementing high-speed rail will keep billions of dollars in the U.S. economy by decreasing the amount of oil that the U.S. consumes.    According to the International Association of Railways (UIC), high-speed rail is eight times more energy efficient than airplanes and four times more efficient than automobile use. It will also decrease greenhouse gas emissions and improve air quality.
  • Expands Travel Choices and Improves Mobility:
    High-speed rail can deliver people from one downtown to another as fast as or faster than air travel.  The addition of HSR as an integrated part of America’s transportation system will help airports work better and highways work better. It will also expand options for citizens in rural and small urban communities with increased transfer points and feeder services that connect with new HSR corridors.

LB Aluminium is underrated - Koon Yew Yin

Author: Koon Yew Yin   |  Publish date: Wed, 7 Apr 2021, 10:53 AM


My intention for writing this article is to help investors to make more money. Whether you buy or sell does not make affect the market price because the daily traded volume is more than 10 million shares. I am obliged to tell you that most of my money is on this stock.

Business Background

LB Aluminium Bhd is a Malaysia based company principally engaged in the business of manufacturing, marketing and trading of aluminium extrusions. Their product acts as a raw material for transport, construction, consumer goods, packaging as well as electrical engineering due to its lightweight, an excellent conductor of electricity and durability in nature. The company has expanded its business across Europe, North America, China, Australia, New Zealand and South-East Asia.

The company is one of the largest producers of aluminium extrusion products in Asia as shown below.

Aluminium Extrusion

With high accuracy and sophisticated technology, our products meet the most stringent and specific requirements set by our customers across different industries. We offer extrusion for aluminium alloy 1070, 6005, 6061, 6063, 6082, as well as special alloys, with extrusion profiles measuring up to 300mm in CCD (Circumscribing Circle Diameter) and extrusion length up to 12 meters. Diversity, quality and consistency are hallmarks that we pride ourselves in. 

China managed to stop the spread of the Covid 19 virus in Wuhan within a few months and all the factories started working full steam ahead.

As a result, China has increased its net import of primary and alloy aluminium to record high in the last 10 years as shown on the above chart.

The chart below shows that the price of aluminium has been going up in the last 1 year. It has gone up about 50% in the last 1 year.  

 

The above price chart shows that it is on up trend. The last traded price was 93 sen per share. It is likely to go up continuously.  

My target price:  

Its latest EPS was 6 sen and its previous quarter EPS was 3.76 sen. It shot up 60% from the previous quarter.

This shows that the company has been making and more profit every quarter. It is very safe to assume its EPS for each of the next 3 quarters will be 6 sen, its annual EPS will be 24 sen.

Based on PE 10, L B Aluminium share should be valued at Rm 2.40 per share.  

Additional information

Everyday Uses for Aluminium Extrusions

Extruded aluminium has helped create the ease in our lives today. Major components of cars, subway trains, bikes, airplanes, and boats are manufactured using aluminium extrusions. This doesn't include only the exteriors of the vehicle, but also the internal framework and the fasteners that hold it all together. The internal parts of the computer you're reading this on, along with the keyboard and mouse that you use and the desk that your computer sits on, all made with aluminium extrusions.

More than you know is made with aluminium extrusions. From the intricately grooved bleachers in stadiums and sports fields to the display units used in stores, all made with extruded aluminium.

The Extrusion Process

Extrusion is a process of shaping different molten metals and plastics by forcing them through shaped designs at extremely high pressures. Because of how flexible the process is, there are many different ways to perform the extrusion, including either hot or cold, and continuous or semi-continuous.

Try thinking of the extrusion process like making pasta. The dough is sent through a press, which emits long, continuous strands of spaghetti. The process with aluminium extrusion is very similar, except on a much bigger scale. The process involves workers melting down the metal until it is molten and then transferring it to the extrusion machine. This machine then via a hydraulic or mechanical press, forces the molten aluminium through a steel die at high pressure. If it is a continuous extrusion, the press will continue to force the metal through in one long, continuous section until the piece is done. If it's semi-continuous, the press will cut off pieces one by one as it is extruded.

Aluminium Extrusions in the Auto Industry

Aluminium plays a very important role in the auto industry. The metal provides resistance to the long-term environmental effects of temperature, moisture, and the corrosiveness from road salt. Everything from body and frame components to radiator enclosures, drive shafts and cylinder liners may be made from aluminium extrusions.

Extruded aluminium’s high strength-to-weight ratio makes it the perfect metal to be used in the auto industry. Allowing the vehicles to carry more, be faster, and all at a lower cost because of it being lightweight and strong.

Extruded Aluminium in Construction

Extruded aluminium products for construction are versatile, both in application and production. For example, lightweight extruded aluminium panelling and guide rails are common in trailer, shed, and furniture construction, however, denser structures are becoming more common.

Extruded aluminium isn't just limited to exterior design and function though. Lighting fixtures, elevator shafts, and stairwells all employ many different applications of extruded aluminium. Additionally, while aluminium can't make up the basic skeleton of a building it does accent and aids the structure in the interior of the building. Integrated extruded aluminium designs are featured in almost all areas of building construction including plumbing. Below are some examples from a recent project that we just finished.

Andre Kua Looks like Uncle going from all-in glove to all-in steel.

True, steel pricing has been inching up and up non stop for the past quarter but demand is soft.

Sslee Is aluminium price increase good for LB Aluminium??

Current year prospects (continued)
Prospect for the Group
The Group’s operation has not been impacted by the recent reintroduction of the MCO/CMCO as the Group operates under strict standard operating procedures as required by the authorities to
prevent the spread of Covid-19. The incoming sales orders are at a satisfactory level and the trend is expected to sustain for the next quarter following the recovery of the global economy.

The recent spike in global aluminium prices is expected to reduce our margins as it will increase our production cost. As an effort to safeguard our margins, we will increase our selling prices whenever necessary and at the same time improve efficiency and reduce operational costs. As an effort to reduce the operational costs, the Group has commissioned its second solar photovoltaic rooftop project at our main factory in January 2021. The new solar photovoltaic rooftop project of 1.2 MWp is expected to generate an electricity saving of approximately RM50,000 per month to the Group.

For the property segment, the Group’s investment in an associate, Vistarena Development Sdn Bhd, is expected to continue the positive contribution in the coming quarters. The residential
development is 99.9% sold and the current construction progress is approximately 68.9%.

Barring unforeseen circumstances, the Board is optimistic that the Group will be profitable for the
forthcoming quarter.

Selina888 I think kyy better not engage in more postings of his opinion because many are not happy with his views. Many do not trust him anymore and i think he is using pyschology on others. Why not retire and concentrate on doing charity work and seek peace. At his age, it is better to lead a simple life.
07/04/2021 9:57 PM
sniper123 As and when time permits all of you folks to study and analyse the price action volume of all of KYY so called underrated stocks such as dominant, eupe, kps and mnrb and now lb aluminium you will notice that 1 week before the article is publish in i3investor.com, there is always a "flush up" in the share price and this means oledi insiders taken position and waiting to dump once the article appears.

No point to condemn him as he is a good writer, salesman stating figures/data and able to convince you to flw him without yourselves doing your own homework. I did trapped by him once. That was good enuf wake up call for me. Yes, KYY pls stop writing in I3
