signalmw (吉隆坡3日讯)隨著首相敦马哈迪示意若中国同意,东海岸铁路计划(ECRL)的工程规模缩小后可以继续进行,分析员认为虽然这对建筑领域来说是一项好消息,但东铁计划的谈判过程可能非常漫长。
国阵政府于2016年10月21日批准这连接巴生港至吉兰丹彭加兰古堡(Pengkalan Kubor),长达688公里的东海岸铁路计划,並在同年11月1日与中国交通建设公司(CCCC)签署工程、採购、施工和调试协议,从中取得中国进出口银行部份融资。

myway KUALA LUMPUR (March 7): Finance Minister Lim Guan Eng (pictured) said today Bank Pembangunan Malaysia Bhd's RM3 billion Industry Digitalisation Transformation Fund forms a part of the nation's Budget 2019 initiatives to push Malaysia towards Industry 4.0 by accelerating the adoption of new technology including robotics, big data and artificial intelligence.

Noting that Malaysia as a manufacturing-based and export-driven economy, Lim emphasised that the country cannot afford to be left behind by this massive change.

"Managed by Bank Pembangunan, the fund will offer RM3 billion worth of loans with an interest subsidy of 2% for all Malaysian companies interested to digitalise their businesses and make the leap. With 23% of our 2018 GDP made up of the manufacturing sector that employed more than 2 million people, falling behind would disrupt the Malaysian economy in the worst possible ways.

"Through the Industry Digitalisation Transformation Fund, we aim to fund the transformation of Malaysia's industrial capabilities by supporting the right ecosystem to make the country a preferred location for high tech manufacturing," Lim said here today in his keynote speech at the launch of the Industry Digitalisation Transformation Fund.

He said the Malaysia Digital Economy Corp Sdn Bhd will collaborate with Bank Pembangunan to vet all applications for loans under the Industry Digitalisation Transformation Fund and ensure that the loans are channelled to the right sector for the right technology.

19/03/2019 12:22 PM
commonsense 1H19 result has been very disappointing with total profit to shareholder of only RM170.6 mil vs 1H18 of RM270mil. This represent a fall in profit by almost 40%.

Even though some of the divisions profits like cement have improve slightly, it is still far from what the company had managed to achieve in previous years. The review, delay, cancellation or reduction in cost of some of the big infrastructure projects had somewhat affected the company’s cement and construction divisions performance. Given that the outlook of these industries is not expected to recover anytime soon, investors needs to prepare for the division to record similar profit level in the near future.

The weaker performance of the utilities and property segment has also dragged the group total performance. These weaknesses are still expected to persist in the rest of FY19 and also in FY20.

The average profit target to shareholders by multiple analysts are around RM450mil for FY19. This would mean that the company is already trading at a lofty valuation of 26x PE. Worst is that the profit is expected to fall further in FY20.

If you are looking to hedge your portfolio outside of YTL (due to its weak earnings outlook and its high valuation) I would recommend you to look at MBMR. (https://klse.i3investor.com/servlets/stk/pt/5983.jsp)

MBMR is a direct proxy to Perodua via its 22.6% interest in the company. Valuation is cheap at only 6.4x PE based on FY18 profit of RM166mil. PB is low at only 0.7x BV.

FY19 should deliver another profit growth year to the company. Profit growth will again be driven by the performance of Perodua (via MBMR 22.6% holdings in Perodua) from the still strong sales of new Myvi, sales of SUV Aruz and the introduction of the newly revamp Alza sometime in the 2H19. Aruz which commands a higher margin compared to other models, will help improve the total profit margin of Perodua (which will flow to MBMR’s bottom line as well).

MBMR is expected to achieve a profit of RM200mil in 2019. At the current share price, the company is being valued at only 5.3x which is a lot lower than the industry average of 15x PE. As an example, UMW (another company with exposure to Perodua) is currently trading at a PE multiple of almost 20x.

Good luck.

NotSafe2019 After Malaysia PM announce no HSR, it is clear investors should avoid this counter as all the investigations taken. Safer to buy non-crony counters. Obvious from the total collapse of this counter last year after the general election, investors must not get burned badly again.
17/04/2019 2:48 PM
wayup Same la w/ecrl many times say cancel. HSR cannot cancelled wan. Have to pay billion and nothing to show. Delay already have to pay 500m.

17/04/2019 6:16 PM
l3ryan Tun said only after 2 years.. slowly wait
17/04/2019 7:01 PM
Lucas Chan Yup,it could be in between 1 to 2 years, but let’s think about it, we can now prepare to accumulate some first, and that I believe according to ytl strong fundamental, it will goes back to 1.5 around, and once hsr decided to launch, it will touch 1.8-2.0 at least!! So after calculated, which is 80-90% in 2 year run...it’s considered a good return also!!!
17/04/2019 7:53 PM
Lucas Chan I believe they can manage well, let’s give time to them and enjoy the run in 2 years
18/04/2019 12:05 PM
