26/11/2019 9:21 PM
luistan Spend half of cash repurchase own shares is best way to increase per share earnings.
27/11/2019 9:59 AM
Titan is not company buy back. It is director buy for himself. So, it won't increase the per share earning.
28/11/2019 7:30 AM
Ncm88 Titan manage to grab low after QR release ? This stock doesnt seem to have many retailers hehe about to go north soon
28/11/2019 7:45 AM
Titan din drop to 1.90....so din buy. This stk has very thin market float. Big boss hold a lot and have many big institutions.
28/11/2019 8:40 AM
GreatDreamer Finally, Key Shareholders Dato Tan HC start buying again on 25/11/19 with 20k share @ RM2.00 after stop buying for a few months.

If Overseas biz downturn is temporary, APM may maintain the same dividend since there is plenty of cash in hand.

For local biz, good performance most likely be maintain since BNM can lower interest rate again and again next year..... this will stimulate car volumn sold..

09/12/2019 3:56 PM
Titan APM has a strong support at RM2. Chart wise it is consolidating and side way. RSI gaining momentum and MACD pointing upwards. I believe it should start to rebound......my 2c analysis only. Dunno can use o not....lol
10/12/2019 10:04 AM
Ncm88 Going up sowly....

chkhooju I prefer the slow and steady pace. Must not move too fast.
10/12/2019 10:55 PM
Titan Chart wise, it looks good. It starts to turn upward and it is gaining momentum. Hopefully, it can turn into uptrending.stock.
12/12/2019 1:12 AM
Titan if today can close at 2.21...then will be nice.
13/12/2019 10:51 AM
Titan Next QR should report a better result.
16/12/2019 11:21 AM
Titan x70 is now CBU in malaysia and it is still selling like hot cakes. Wonder how much APM benefit from it. Generally the interior will be locally source.
20/12/2019 11:32 AM
Jeffreyteck Believe just push up before poorer Dec results yoy announcement, last Dec is simply too good.
03/01/2020 10:46 AM
Titan Jeffrey, i believe the next QR should report a decent result. Last Q was bad due to some retrenchment compensation in Indonesia which reported bad results for the last few quarters and thus pull down the entire group profit. Hopefully, with the retrenchment, the operation in Indonesia will report breakeven result and then the overall group result should be good.
03/01/2020 10:59 AM
luistan Until now Apm begining buy back it own shares..it is good news for company and shareholder...keep the pace.
08/01/2020 7:15 PM
Titan seem like no institution is interested in this counter. Only company and also director trying to continue to accumulate the shares at low price. Will privatization on the card? I know that their current landbank in seri kembangan is worth a gold. Will they divest that into property and move the factory to somewhere else? Extremely boring counter. Shall wait till end Feb to see the QR.
09/01/2020 9:06 AM
Titan Holding tight tight to this. I think something is brewing. Volume is super low. Company is doing buy back and i think director is also trying to buy back all the low price unit....
15/01/2020 12:37 PM
Nepo It seems that sb or a group of investors are accumulating the stock or the stock has good news to announce...
15/01/2020 12:38 PM
Titan I dun think a group of investors buying buy more like the director and share buyback. Seem like they trying to accumulate as much as possible at low price but currently not much seller. The volume is super low. Next Qr will be in Feb and shall wait for the result. They have carried out retrenchment exercise for the Indonesia plant which has been reporting a loss for a couple of quarters and dragging down the entire earning but I doubt the retrenchment will give exponential growth or earning. At the current price, it is near the lowest. I guess the safety margin is there and if they can continue to pay high div, it is suitable to be included in my portfolio.
16/01/2020 8:10 AM
Nepo @Titan, agreed
Buy call. Don't miss this low risk opportunity to buy in.

Commentary on Prospects

APM AUTOMOTIVE HOLDINGS BERHAD (Registration No. 199701009342 (424838-D))

APM is principally involved in the design, manufacturing, assembly and production of automotive and mobility components. APM’s main operation is located in Malaysia but it is also present in various other jurisdictions including United States of America, Netherlands, Australia, Thailand, Vietnam and the Republic of Indonesia.

In general, we expect local and global market conditions in Q1 to soften going into 2020 due to the
uncertainty caused by the Covid-19 outbreak. Disruption in the supply chain remains a major concern as many of our plants source for parts and components from China and practise the “Just-in-time”inventory strategy where materials are procured on a need basis to reduce waste and inventory holding costs.

The ongoing friction between the US and China is also another concern for the company even though “Phase One” of a trade agreement has since been signed by the economic powerhouses. We see the simmering tension between these two countries to persist into 2020 as they enter into a second round of talks for “Phase Two” of their trade agreement, which many believe, is more challenging than “PhaseOne”.

However, diversification has always been part of APM’s overall strategy to counter global economic
uncertainties as we aim to minimize our risks exposure and limit potential losses by not concentrating all our capital and resources solely in one jurisdiction or products, hence, our presence in various international markets.

In this respect, our plant in Bago, Myanmar is due to commence operation soon. Located around 2.6km to the west of Bago River, this plant is approximately 30 acres in size. Phase One of operations will involve the production and assembly of bus seats. This Bago plant is a catalyst enabling our entry into the Indo-China automotive market, which is believed to be currently experiencing rapid growth.

Plans are also underway to enhance our market presence in Indonesia, commencing with the recent acquisition of a strategically located piece of industrial property measuring approximately 25,788 m2 in the first phase Kota Deltamas. This piece of property is located not far from Hyundai Motor’s first new USD1.5B manufacturing plant in Indonesia which is reputed to have the capacity of producing up to250,000 vehicles annually.

Additionally, the much anticipated stimulus package from the Government to dampen the impact of the Covid-19 outbreak in Malaysia should allay fears of an economic meltdown. We share the sentiments with those who believe that the epidemic is temporary and global rebound can be expected in the near future.

Our prospect going into 2020 remains challenging and of concern. The changes in policies and
regulations as well as economic and currency uncertainties are the primary factors that could affect
APM’s performance. In this respect, APM will continue to exercise prudence in its business dealings and emphasis in cost management as well as operational efficie

17/03/2020 8:59 AM
Jeffreyteck When auto market was doing well last two years it also can't perform, now? Hicom from 2.80 to around 1.00 etc. Only positives are high NTA and DY but substantial current assets put minority SHs at risk as they are not aware of its quality unless disclosure standards improved.
