Why should Hiap Teck report reduced profit? Koon Yew Yin

Author:   |    Publish date:

Malaysia has just established a new world record of having the greatest number of Covid 19 cases per capita in the world. We have a total of 1.01 million Covid 19 cases and 7,994 deaths for our population of 32 million people. 1 in 32 people has Covid 19 virus. Unfortunately, the number of new Covid 19 cases is still surging as show on the chart below.

A few days ago, Deputy Prime Minister Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob said quote "All factories must remain close".

Extension of the 3 months lockdown

Due to the rapid increase of Covid 19 cases, the government has already lockdown the whole country in the last 3 months. Now the government has to extend the lockdown period for another few months until 80% of all the people are fully vaccinated.

During lockdown all factories including Hiap Teck and all other steel companies and all construction companies must remain close. As a result, all steel companies and construction companies will definitely lose money because they have to pay their permanent staff, office maintenance, depreciation of assets, bank loan, etc.

All these companies will definitely report reduced profit or losses in the next few quarters.

Even if Hiap Teck could produce during the lockdown, building contractors do not need to buy Hiap Teck’s products because their workers cannot work during the lockdown. Just open your eyes, you can see all the construction works have stopped.  

All investors should have some common sense to know this fact and quickly sell all their stock holdings like what I did a few weeks ago.

Unfortunately, Mr Ooi Teik Bee has not stop sending out his weekly buy recommendations for Hiap Teck.

On 17 July, Mr Ooi Teck Bee’s weekly news letter under the title “Hiap Teck- Unearthing the jewel of the east (Steel stock).

Investors with some common sense should know that Hiap Teck will surely report reduced profit in the next few quarters.

Q1 2021, EPS = 5.73
Q4 2020, EPS = 8.18

Q1 2021, EPS = 2.09
Q4 2020, EPS = 4.95
EPS dropped 15%
The share price of UWC continued to perform well and on an uptrend.

Note :
The theory of the EPS of the latest quarter result dropped compared against the previous quarter result, the share price will drop is not true ... is not true ...
The share price will drop is not true ... I repeat ...

I have shown very good example on D&O, Unisem and UWC.

Share price = 0.515
EPS = 6.54
PER = 7.87
Q3 2021, EPS = 4.79
Q2 2021, EPS = 2.21
EPS increased 119%
The share price of Hiaptek continued to perform well and on an uptrend.

Q4 2021 of Hiaptek is affected by EMCO and MCO, the EPS for Q4 2021 is only 50% of Q3 2021 at 2.40 cents.

FY2021 results
The total PAT of last 3 quarter results is 102.9 million, which is already more than RHB's projection of 102 million for FY 2021.

Q4 2021 results cover May, June and July 2021 results.
Hiaptek is working full swing in May 2021.
Hiaptek is operating at 60% or less capacity in June and July 2021 (Miti approval to operate).

I believe MCO lockdown will affect Q4 2021 results for 1.5 months only because the factories in Selangor and Terengganu are allowed to operate during EMCO and MCO respectively.

The PAT for Q3 2021 is 65.9 million.
I believe Q4 2021 will still be a profit. I project a PAT of 30 million.

New machines (blast furnace) in FY 2022.
The current capacity of the blast furnace plant is 700 thousand tonnes of billets/slab, in FY 2022 the capacity is increased to 1.5 million tonnes.

This blast furnace will save a lot of electricity next year, electricity is one of the main cost components of steel production.

The price of iron ore will come down a bit at the end of this year, hence the PAT will improve in FY 2022.

Assuming the selling price is about the same or slightly increase as 2021, I believe PAT will be around 200 million in FY 2022 (I want to be conservative in case of MCO lockdown).

I believe the growth of PAT in FY 2022 is still very strong.

The share price of Hiaptek below 0.50 is cheap enough
The exercise price for the warrant is 0.50, the present price is 0.48, the downside risk is very small now. It should be a buying opportunity rather than a cut loss. All directors of Hiaptek have the esos of Hiaptek shares, the price is quoted at 0.50.

I believe the share price of Hiaptek will come back after this MCO is over, just invest them for a bit longer term.

All workers in the factories are vaccinated fully, hence any future MCO lockdown will affect Hiaptek very minimally.

Target price for FY 2022.

If the PAT is 179 million, the target price is 1.03. If you buy at 0.515, the potential gain is 100%.
If the PAT is 200 million, the target price is 1.16. If you buy at 0.515, the potential gain is 125%.

Stock market is always forward looking
The most important factor to select a stock to outperform the market is the growth of earning (Profit after tax or PAT).

When the stock market (KLSE) is very bearish, the opportunity to buy cheap shares is always there.
In Chinese words, danger is always an opportunity. You will not be able to buy cheap shares if there is no danger in the stock market. I like this strategy quoted by Warren Buffet, "Be greedy when others are fearful".

Q4 2021 result will be bad due to MCO lockdown. I believe the share price is already price in the current share price at 0.515.

Based on projected EPS for FY 2022 at 0.116, the present price is 0.515, the forward PER is 4.43.

Based on TA, the share price is well supported at 0.48.

As long as the economy is performing well, the stock market (KLSE) will perform well too. The current setback is temporary and it can be resolved after Covid-19 pandemic is under control. I believe we will see a better KLSE in September 2021.

Thank you.

OTB I have a few clients to monitor Hiaptek factories in Klang and Terengganu.
How many lorries or containers are there ? Are the factories operating and etc ?

I was told the blast furnace is upgraded to increase 100% capacity to 1.5 million MT in FY 2022.
This statement was confirmed with the management in Terengganu and also one of the directors of Hiaptek.
I call up this director in Hiaptek to confirm again.
My subscriber is also helping me to confirm this statement today. I was told 5 minutes ago, it is confirmed that the capacity of blast furnace is 1.5 million MT in FY 2022..

The blast furnace plant in Terengganu is operating near full capacity because all the workers there are fully vaccinated.

I do not like to tell lies here.
Thank you.

OTB The blast furnace plant of Hiaptek is located in Terengganu, Terengganu is under phase 2 and the factory is allowed to operate at 60% of work force now.

The steel plant of Hiaptek is located in Selangor.
Hiaptek is operating at 60% or less capacity in June and July 2021 (Miti approval to operate) because all workers in the factories are vaccinated fully.

Moving towards blast furnaces

To put things into perspective, there are only two major steel players operating blast furnaces currently — Alliance Steel and Eastern Steel.

In general, a blast furnace is three times more capital-intensive than an electric arc furnace (EAF) but its steelmaking cost composition including raw materials is about 25% lower than the latter’s.

I want to add the below statement about Hiaptek or ESSB.
Blast furnace of ESSB will help to save RM 100 million a year.
Hence the profit of Hiaptek will be good in FY 2022.

Thank you.

OTB Under the guidance of the iron and steel reduction policy, some domestic steel mills have announced maintenance plans. Taking Jiangsu Province as an example, the total crude steel output from January to June was 63.58 million tons, an increase of 12.77%. In order to complete the target for the whole year, Jiangsu's leading sample steel mills will need to reduce their output by more than 4 million tons in the second half of the year. In order to meet the needs of the domestic market, imported semi-finished products are then rolled into the first choice of most steel mills. Chinese steel mills are actively looking for opportunities to import billets.
According to Mysteel, the import price of general billet in the recent market is about US$710-725/ton CFR Jiangyin Port, an increase of US$24-28/ton on a week-on-week basis. Part of the low-cost resources from India are about US$700/ton, but considering that the Indian epidemic may cause ships to be unable to dock or stay for 14 days to enter the port, most buyers are cautious about Indian resources
Chinese steel mills are actively looking for opportunities to import billets.

Ans : ESSB of Hiaptek is able to compete internationally to export billets.
ESSB will increase the capacity from 700,000 MT to 1.5 million MT in FY 2022.
Hiaptek will perform well in FY 2022.

Thank you.

OTB Want to challenge me, please compete gentlemanly.

Why MCO only affect all steel stocks ?
In KLSE, steel stocks belong to Ind/Prod index.
In KLSE, Technology and Ind/Prod indexes are the two most bullish indexes respectively.
In KLSE, Technology and Ind/Prod sectors are the two most bullish sectors respectively.
MCO will affect the least on Technology stocks and all steel stocks.

Other sectors will be affected very badly, no reason and it is very wrong to mention only all steel stocks.

Hiaptek is still an up trending stock, the share price of Hiaptek is still above 200 day SMA.
There is no lower low shown on the chart.
Saying Hiaptek is a down trending stock is telling a big lie here.

The writer is a big liar here. Simply write without any fact and figure.

Want to challenge other Guru/pundit, please write with accurate facts and figures.

You can cheat some people some of the time,
You can cheat all the people some of the time,
You cannot cheat all the people all the time.

A liar will continue to lose in stock market.

OTB I never attack any person in public forum.
Why so personal to attack me all the time ?
I did not answer does not mean that I am wrong.
I am a grateful person, I always "remember the source of the water when I drink water".

I keep quiet is a matter of respect.
Please do not abuse it.

DickyMe Reduced profit normal lah! Even kindergarten kid knows that when companies are forced to operate below capacity. Reduced profit does not mean end of the company, just a little longer wait mah.

stockwin I like to see KYY's rebuttal of OTB's points here. OTB is calling you a big lier here, unless you can counter his points above, I am inclined to agree with OTB.

I would like KYY to remember his final sentense of his article in bold:---

"Investors with some common sense should know that Hiap Teck will surely report reduced profit in the next few quarters." In particular last three words "next few quarters". Common sense will tell me that kyy will never buy Hiap Teck in the next 12 months. I hope he will not curu curi buy Hiap Teck during the present weakness !!

This type of attack on me is not fair at all.
I have many sleepless nights on this article, I try to forgive but I really feel hard to do it.
To those hard attackers on this forum, I will remember you well.
I had done nothing wrong to all readers in I3, I still hope those attackers will feel guilty on their actions.
