MQ Fundamental Analysis

Figure 1: Quarter revenue of CARIMIN

Figure 2: Quarter profit of CARIMIN

Figure 1 and 2 shows that the revenue and profit earned by CARIMIN are not growing proportionally to each other. This is the main factor that deteriorates CARIMIN’s fundamental rating, as the ability of a company to convert sales to profit is very crucial in determining the sustainability and prospectus of a company.

It is fundamentally poor stock, as it fails most of the fundamental tests. According to MQ Trader criteria, stocks with fundamental rating which is less than 2.5/5.0 are not suitable for long term investment.

Overall trend of CARIMIN

CARIMIN’s share price has been experiencing a long term downtrend for more than 3 years due to poor financial result with huge losses as shown in Figure 2. A sharp rebound was observed since 26 Nov 2018 when its share price was boosted as a result of its good 3Q18 financial result. According to Figure 1 and 2, it was observed that the greatest revenue and net profit was earned in 3Q18 as compared to its historical financial result which marks a new breakthrough achieved by CARIMIN.

MQ Trader’s View

CARIMIN’s management has steered this company to the right direction successfully, as it swung to the black in 3Q18 with a net profit of RM 11.72 million from a net loss of RM 277,000 in the previous quarter due to its increased revenue from its oil and gas division.  The improvement on its balance sheet is reflected immediately by the sharp rebound of its share price.

However, this catalyst does not guarantee the persistent uptrend of its share price, as it will be influenced by several risks:

  1. Next quarter financial results that determine whether CARIMIN is still on the right path
  2. The volatility of crude oil price



In our opinion, we will consider buy and hold for mid term and start grabbing opportunities by using trading strategies (i.e. EMA 5 Crossover). News or announcement should be monitored from time to time, as this counter is currently only suitable for mid term investment due to its poor fundamentals. At the same time, we have to be aware of the existence of sell signals detected by MQ Trader Trading Strategies when any unfavorable event happens to CARIMIN, so that we can exit our position to protect our capital during that time.
