Highlights

Public Watchlist: The Star Writers' Stock Pick 2016

[1] All eyes will also be on the development of the RM27bil Pan Borneo Highway, which is slated for completion by 2023. Steel fabricator and engineering services provider KKB Engineering Bhd is deemed one of the strong contenders for this mega project as it has an extensive track record in building bridges.
[2] THE largest condom manufacturer in the world is all set for 2016 with the expansion of its own brand manufacturing (OBM). The segment provides Karex with margins 10% higher than its original equipment manufacturing segment. If the company succeeds in bringing in more OBM revenue, its profit margins would increase.
[3] TRADING at just below book value, CIMB Group Bhd is probably the cheapest financial institution with a regional exposure on Bursa Malaysia.
[4] A WILDCARD pick to watch out for would be PRG Holdings Bhd. A cheaper entry could be its warrants, which at 27.5 sen is trading at a 22.22% premium to its mother share’s price of 84 sen. The warrant has a strike price of 75 sen and has a long way to go with its expiry on June 7, 2019.
[5] Petronas Chemicals will grow its production volume in the years ahead. It’s production capacity will rise to 12.7 million tonnes with the Samur plant coming onstream in 2016. Already its reported that 70% of the production of that plant has been taken up.
[6] Back in October, Bank Negara gave the go-ahead for MBSB to start merger talks with Bank Muamalat Malaysia Bhd, an exercise expected to be completed end of this month. A potential deal would pave way for the creation of the country’s largest standalone Islamic bank with a combined asset size of about RM60bil.
[7] Suria Capital Holdings Bhd is the only listed container and port operator that has diversified into property development, a factor that has not been fully priced into its share price.
[8] NON-BANK backed brokerage Apex Equity Holdings Bhd has possibly the strongest balance sheet among its peers with a huge war chest of cash amounting to RM107mil and very minimal borrowings.
