30/11/2017 16:53
x3mg33 Just noise...i wouldn't worry too much about it. if fundamentals are strong, you can sleep soundly with this counter.
30/11/2017 17:07
Tradewinds Agree. Huge potential upside if you discount the MNI impairment loss last qtr. Ticks all the fundamental boxes.Also realised huge play by less than a handful of traders with multiple lots. Just wondering if somethings brewing and they know something we don't?

kywoo The sales and profit figures that just came out from the second quarter is very impressive but widely expected. For the second quarter, sales grow by 12.6% while net profit up by 26%. EPS is up 20% (after netting out minority interest)For the half year results, sales is up 12% and net profit up 28%. EPS is up 23%. Based on first half year performance the EPS for financial year ending 2018 should be at least 1.10. At current market price the company is trading at a prospective PE of around 8.5 or so. We can expect dividend to increase accordingly to 55 sens per share (that is we are assuming the board is reasonable to minority shareholders and not hoard cash in the kitty) Looking at the profit contribution from the motorcycle business the local sales and profit are very impressive. Profit from local motorcycle business for half year increased by 50% while the Vietnam profit increased by 4.7%. All in all the motorcycle profit contributes more than 90% of overall group profit.The motorcycle business will be the money spinner and cash cow for the group for many years to come. The building materials business will continue to decline in terms of contribution despite high sales volume. What is even more fantastic about the balance sheet of the company is its net cash position (cash in bank less bank borrowing). It has now increased from RM 425 million from 6 months ago to RM 568 million. If the Board is really generous it can even declare a special dividend of 50 sens or so without any problem because by June 2018 the cash will go up even further.( I am hopeful they will look into this) I can say with confidence that Hong Leong Industries is one of the best buy in the market at the current price.

sosfinance Good fundamental stock with growth. Currently undervalue due to one off impairment. Making about more than RM330m p.a. this FYE.
08/02/2018 18:10
EngineeringProfit Yes, SOS. See if can get a good discount to get back this stock today....

EngineeringProfit Looks like a day after 'good bye' becomes a 'good buy'day

09/02/2018 10:39
Anthem2 That one off impairment is masking its true intrinsic value. Factor in the average EPS growth, look at it's EV multiples and price to free cash flow ratio, you've got a gem that's moving under everyone's radar.
10/02/2018 13:47
LeeFoundation Now looking actively at Petronm for its low pe high net cash biz.

Anything below 13 is still a good and fair valuation for Petronm. Look at just the fcf alone, smart investors will not easily let this counter go off from their radar.

sosfinance Vietnam growth may be one of the catalyst for its Yamaha motorbike business coupled with recovery of sales in Malaysia. Yamaha is a sustainable "brand" and "moat". It's just waiting for more investors to discover it.

Forget about the price first (RM10.98), go get an estimates of the value, then compare with the price. Always look at 2-3 years in advance, if you can see something/catalyst that others haven't seen it, your return will be above consensus.

sosfinance consumer stocks are sensitive to inflation and interest rates as well. price increase is common with better features. (one cent increase for coke is equal to additional USD6.45 billion profits).

Flintstones This stock is creeping up quietly. It reminds me a lot about padini. High free cash flow, high dividend and growth
01/03/2018 20:22
sosfinance Don't sell until its Vietnam Yamaha reach maturity (of course if the price runs a lot faster than the fundamental, we have to run first).

kywoo Review of company,s performance based on 3rd quarter results.

(1) sales
9 months 2018 RM 1.9 billion (+11% )
9 months 2017 RM 1.7 billion (+6% )
9 months 2016 RM 1.6 billion (0 % )
9 months 2015 RM 1.6 billion

(2) Net profit due to HLI shareholers
9 months 2018 RM 228 million (+10%)
9 months 2017 RM 207 million (+16%)
9 months 2016 RM 178 million (+37%)
9 months 2015 RM 130 million (+ 5%)
9 months 2014 RM 124 million (+28%)
9 months 2014 RM 97 million

The profit to shareholders have been increasing every year The only exception was in 2017 when company has to write off RM 176 million due to its investment loss in a newsprint company in the final quarter of 2017. Hence, the final profit results for 2018 will show an increase of about 200% over that of 2017.
Projected net profit to shareholders for 2018 RM 310 million ( EPS $1.00)
Actual net profit to shareholders for 2017 RM 103 million ( EPS $0.33)

The company's shares is currently trading at a PE of around 11. A fairer PE should be around 15. Hence there is still a lot of room for the share price to increase given the current low valuation and fantastic profit growth potential.

(3) Motorcycle business profit contrbution

Although HLI is better known as a building material manufacturer and supplier, the fact is that the building material business contributes to only about 4% of total net profit. 96% of total group profit actually comes from the motorcycle business. That is why the profit potential for future profit growth is tremendous given the fact that its Yamaha brand is doing very well both locally and in Vietnam.
Perhaps, the company should be renamed as Hong Leong Yamaha Industries to reflect the importance of its motorcycle business.
9 months total 2018 9 months total 2017 9 months total 2016
Motorcycle profit (Local) RM 171.9 million RM 119.5 million RM 97 million
Motorcycle profit (Vietnam) RM 97 million RM 108 million RM 79 million
Total motorcycle profit RM 268.9 million RM 227.5 million RM 176 million
HLI Group profit RM 279 million RM 243 million RM 207 million
Overall motorcycle share 96.3% 93.6% 85%

The profit contribution from Yamaha Vietnam varies quite a bit from quarter to quarter. There should not be undue alarm that the 3rd quarter 2018 profits dropped quite a fair bit Just look at the following,
Q1 2017 RM 30.7 million
Q2 2017 RM 37,3 million
Q3 2017 RM 40.6 million
Q4 2017 RM 25.0 million
Q1 2018 RM 32.8 million
Q2 2018 RM 38.4 million
Q3 2018 RM 26.0 million
Q4 2018 RM 32.4 million (projected)

The motorcycle business is very secured and profitable as there is always a demand irrespective of the state of the economy. With a strong and well accepted brand like Yamaha, competition is limited. The only real competitor is Honda. In recent years Yamaha is eating into Honda's market share in the local market as well as in Vietnam. Other brands are not as successful in gaining market share. Demand in the coming months in Malaysia would even be better with the 0 rated GST.

(4) Group cash position

One of the strongest item in the balance sheet is the speed and quantum of cash accumulation over the last few years. There are not many listed companies that can build up their cash holdings so consistently and so rapidly. Net cash position ( Cash in bank less bank borrowings) is as follows

As of june 2015 RM 170 million
As of june 2016 RM 271 million
As of june 2017 RM 425 million
1st Q 2018 RM 512 million
2nd Q 2018 RM 568 million
3rd Q 2018 RM 645 million
As of june 2018 RM 720 million (projected)

In 2018 financial year cash holding is increasing at average of RM 73.3 million per quarter. The net cash backing per share is about RM 2.00. Actually, accumulating so much cash without any plan for immediate capital expenditure is poor cash management. The excessive cash pile should be returned to shareholders in the form of more generous dividends. The current dividend payout ratio is far too conservative. Management should consider rewarding shareholders and maximizing their share values through a high dividend payout. A generous dividend payout always lead to higher PE awarded.

x3mg33 great insight and review @kywoo. I couldn't agree more.
14/06/2018 17:24
x3mg33 ...." Management should consider rewarding shareholders and maximizing their share values through a high dividend payout. A generous dividend payout always lead to higher PE awarded..." This million dollar question deserves some serious answering from management, internal capital expansion albeit at its optimum, can be ruled out given the current market climate, i really do not see the need to sit on so much cash! This is one of the most conservative and well managed counters in KLSE but also the most frugal one when it comes to dividend payout. Dividend policy over the years have been rather obscure.
