16/03/2020 4:17 PM
observatory BAuto doesn't delay its financial results announcement. Its quarter ends on Jan31. That's why it releases in March instead of Feb. Anyway the result is weak, and this is the quarter after its pricing issue has been resolved, but before being hit by Covid-19. Expect worse results in Jun.
17/03/2020 6:23 PM
RainT omg

think this recent quarter release is the good result

but end up bad result

not yet take in Covid 19 already bad, if take in Covid 19 will be more worse
17/03/2020 8:25 PM
RainT anybody buying or holding ?

what is reason buy/hold?

i found that the expectation of good result is vanish with this bad quarter result release
17/03/2020 8:28 PM
RainT profit margin also drop

Vess88 If they can maintain their dividend payout this counter shall be fine... like the joker upstairs mentioned before... with data... then only you know whether is dividend trap or not... am i right? Joker catch the bear...lol....
18/03/2020 9:59 AM
RainT this can average down or not ??
18/03/2020 3:39 PM
observatory Average down is a risky psychology. Better to treat each new buy and sell decisions on individual basis. Forget about past sunk cost.
18/03/2020 8:25 PM
observatory Having said that, I myself cannot avoid such psychology. What I do is to compile a total paper profit/ loss on each stock based on current price. Looking at number, I will know average down does not reduce any paper loss.
18/03/2020 8:28 PM
RainT buy more
19/03/2020 9:00 PM
shpg22 Even before the outbreak, it is estimated that 40% of the SME businesses just managed to get by. With the MCO and eventual slowdown, at least half of this businesses is expected to close down and a million employees will be jobless. The effect on Malaysia economy will be widespread coupled with low tourism income and extreme low oil price. Ringgit is expected to be further weaken to 1 USD - 5 MYR.

Import of CKD parts & CBU will be more expensive, low buying power from consumer and prolong pandemic, BAUTO will sink further.
21/03/2020 9:40 AM
RainT now almost all biz also look bad in certain aspect

so up to us to find out which worth to invest
22/03/2020 11:23 PM
shpg22 Automobile and property is definitely not on the list of priority
23/03/2020 11:27 AM

01/04/2020 10:39 AM
wesley_gold automobile will be one of the most impacted now...
09/04/2020 3:13 PM
RainT all sector also impacted

just which one is big and small impact only
11/04/2020 2:52 PM
SinGor only bangla and Indo impacted. General Manager still draw same salary. Rich Towkay is in
same financial position. Maybe Change Mercedes / 700series BMW to Madza

17/04/2020 11:45 AM
JJchan CEO bought everyday at 1.70--1.77 before Q results. I think he expects price 2.0++
17/04/2020 4:04 PM
sparkrider What is TP2 ?
17/04/2020 10:42 PM
JJchan If there is a Rally next week, i think Bau can gain 25cents next week bcos the liquidity is drying-up.
Everyday EPF and KWSP are buying up to 2mil shares while the total Volume done for the day is only 4mil
18/04/2020 2:14 PM
patrick8 Mazda model sales Oct'19 to Dec'19 - 2705 units (1.7% of national sales)
Mazda model sales Jan'20 to Feb'20 - 2202 units (2.7% of national sales)

No figures yet on March'20 sales. I would expect it to be impacted from the MCO as well as April's.
However, one can see that Bermaz managed to increase their sales quantum by 1% due to introduction of new models and local funds are buying up this share.
Please make your own due diligence on this counter.
20/04/2020 5:21 PM
JJchan Breathing space for some. Despite the “restricted operations” accorded to some sectors, the impact of the MCO still remains widespread. Within our coverage, sectors that are allowed to resume operations under strict guidelines include:

Aerospace: DRB via CTRM and UMW via UMW Aerospace.
Automotive: Limited to exports of CBU (Mazda; BAuto) and equipment and components (Pecca).
Machines & equipment: This seems rather broad but could likely encompass tech related companies (names like UWC and Vitrox have been operating at sub optimal levels since MCO day-1) and EMS (understand that VSI will soon recommence limited operations).
Construction: Listed contactors do not fall under the G1-G2 category (paid up capital <RM25k) which has been allowed to operate. Buildings with IBS score of >70 can recommence works; positive for IBS players like Kimlun. Jobs that are >90% complete can also proceed, offering a mild reprieve to contractor’s orderbook execution.
Services related to science, professional and technical: O&G is one of the 4 areas that falls under this category but no further details provided.
Shops involved in hardware, E&E and optical: Think FocusP.
Others: Social health services, barber shops and full-service laundry.

I think No Short selling til 30June is to protect Airasia and Sapnrg. However Bauto will also benefit alot too
28/04/2020 3:41 PM
RainT If BAUTO short sell then good
