Kopities low oil price is good for refineries business, lower cost for hydrocarbon, PCHEM is a refineries stock. products from the refineries are still needed despite demand of oil to maintain the existing daily user market.

Before I forget, or if you didn't listen to the interview, the stocks that Ian Yoong is currently holding right now are O&G stocks and small cap businesses in malaysia. KAB is also one of his holdings.

mamatede Woah, long time did not revisit this portfolio... when open back... $$$$
19/05/2020 3:32 PM
mamatede huat ah ... congrats
19/05/2020 3:32 PM
Registered_ID PET Chem is in very good shape. Will this benefit other players in same industry like CCM or LCTITAN? CCM has invested alot in caustic soda and major supplier to glove industry
19/05/2020 3:51 PM
mamatede CCM, some chemicals, LCtitan - PP. Pchem is much much more diverse from PP,PE, fertilizer, chemicals, methanol, speciality chemicals. U say leh.. CCM and lctitan can compare boh? nope.
19/05/2020 8:11 PM
Neut_ron1 Pchem can be placd at the top of all chemical co in Malaysia IMHO. the reasons being products are more diverse from PP, PPE, methanol, speciality products, fertilizer etc. Now the co has pengerang in opeartion JV with foreign country. I also read somewhere it is low gearing & cash flush.. it is top echeleon co in SEA/Asia... share price should move higher & higher.. it is a mtter of time.. read the Annual Report 2019 to see the diverse products Pchem manufacture..Moreover the big shareholders are petronas n GLC if i am not mistaken...

mamatede quarter results is out ! improvement in QOQ.. but -40% dropped if compared YOY
20/05/2020 2:52 PM
Chill88 Sold all. Quarterly results trend seems quite bad. Peak in 2018, drop in 2019, probably further drop in 2020.
20/05/2020 3:10 PM
mamatede To see such a resilient results at this trying time, really impressive. @chill88 ya sell, see you later at the top.
20/05/2020 3:18 PM
untong acceptable result, will continue to hold
Few things i noticed in the latest quarter results;
1) their specialty chemicals started to contribute (from Da Vinci) about 5-6% of revenue but contributes about 18% of last year corresponding quarter profit (30% for current quarter), which is very good if they expand more on this segment, much more resilient and high margin than their O&D segment

2) their fertilizer&methanol segment as resilient as usual, lower plant utilization due to higher turnaround, expect better performance next quarter as urea price is higher as of now.

3) their O&D segment barely breakeven this quarter, with 100% plant utilization! the report mentioned about some deferment of shipment due to COVID 19 port control, not sure to what extend it affects the sales volume.

Most petrochemical products price dropped in April but recovered in May, methanol price is bad, Urea price is higher, lets see how it goes next few quarters, but i am hopeful for longer term (3-5 years), if they expand more and more on specialty chemicals, also RAPID commencement.
21/05/2020 12:30 AM
David PetChem’s foray into speciality chemicals is the right move to escape the volatility of crude oil prices. The management guided that speciality chemicals would eventually contribute up to 25% of the group’s earnings in the future. PetChem became my largest holding this year and I will continue to accumulate.

Philip ( buy what you understand) I now have a telegram account! my daughter has just set it up for me and its proving to be very useful. Lets chat more there if you are interested, without the insults, backbiting, spam and random talk. Just rational investing.

Lets discuss more and chat more on PCHEM if interested.

21/05/2020 9:53 AM
Neut_ron1 imho a renowned petro chem co with myriad of products... also produce speciality chemicals.. with RAPID what can stop this co... an excellent industrial co...
21/05/2020 12:12 PM
mamatede wah so many sell call, apala...
21/05/2020 2:49 PM
mamatede I donno how this Analyst do their job, with call price around 4.45, 4.42, 5.85, 5.75. All their explanation in on products mainly. Do they even priced in RAPID and also the fundamentally sound business at this trying time? Cash Rich position and also potential of growth.

probably they want to push down to collect before mco lifted and things rebounded, too late la. we buy and keep long term punya, you need to pay a premium to take away from me.

Simonalibaba They are called Anal-lyst, they always ask you to buy overvalued stocks like Gloves and underrated value companies like this and LCtitan
21/05/2020 5:10 PM
Neut_ron1 well said, this co is for true investors.... the share will surely rise in tandem with the relaxation of MCO... hold tight to the share ..RAPID project will make this co more valuable....

Equityengineer The price goes up even with sell call, that shows investors and even traders are matured.
21/05/2020 6:53 PM
mamatede theres not much surprises already. Quarter is out. The bad part of it is Q1 and the results still pretty solid. For Q2 theres improvement in price thus more or less or better than Q1 results.
21/05/2020 8:27 PM
Neut_ron1 imho this is the kind of counter that foreign investors will consider into their portfolio when economy is opening after MCO. the co has high paid up capital, high cash, low gearing & diversified products. Further it is one of the main components of KLCI like its brothers PETGas & PETDagang..ride on......

BlessedInvestor Dear Philip,

Can you kindly post your article of Pchem which you wrote last year, if i can remember correctly. I saw it about a month ago and i bought some pchemical. I cannot find the article as i am still trying to learn more from good i3 smart investors. Usually i buy shares that i can sleep peacefully and i am grad that i managed to buy pchemcal from RM 5.20 till RM 5.5.
