Victor Yong Kenanga's book value was RM1.22 as per the recent quarterly report, but market price is 56sen now... Thus, kenanga share price is greatly undervalued :)

Going by industry benchmark, Kenanga should be looking to pay around one to 1.1 times book value for Interpac.

commonsense Kenanga only managed to deliver a profit of RM 11.9mil to its shareholders in FY18 which is less than half of what was achieve in FY17. The main culprit for this underperformance is the credit loss expense which amounts to RM29.8mil of loss vs FY17 of only RM1.6mil. If you look at the operating profit, the company actually delivered a rather flat result of RM51.4mil vs RM54.9mil in FY17. Unless the company is expected to record another massive credit loss again this year, expect FY19 profit to rebound back at around RM20mil.

That being said at the current share price and assuming a profit of RM20mil in FY19, the company would be valued at 18.3x PE which is considerably high.

If you are looking to hedge your portfolio outside of Kenanga (due to 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.

FortuneBlooming Kenanga FY18: PAT 11.9 mil

Dayang FY18: PAT easily about 150 mil

But Kenanga came to Dayang, gave a downgrade report on Dayang.

Should be the other way round. Should be Dayang coming to Kenanga, then giving a downgrade report on Kenanga.

Good123 kenanga could rebound with its Japanese link.Rakuten enters Malaysia’s Online Stock Trading Space with a RM30 million investment


 on Tuesday, May 23, 2017 at 3:02:09 am

Rakuten Trade Sdn Bhd (“Rakuten Trade”), a joint venture company between Kenanga Investment Bank Berhad (“Kenanga IB”) and Japan-based Rakuten Securities, Inc. (“Rakuten Securities”) was officially launched to much fanfare on 18th May 2017, in Kuala Lumpur. Officiating the launch was Yang Berhormat Dato’ Lee Chee Leong, Deputy Minister of Finance Malaysia.

Good123 quarterly results to be announced should be ok
25/11/2019 1:30 PM
Good123 fish now or never Target Price: RM0.600, RM0.630

Last closing price: RM0.550

Potential return: 9.0%, 14.5%

Support: RM0.530

Stop Loss: RM0.500

Possible for bottom fishing. KENANGA is showing early signs of potential bullish reversal from its prior downtrend. Improving RSI and MACD indicators currently signal reasonable entry level, with anticipation of continuous improvement in both momentum and trend in near term. Should resistance level of RM0.580 be broken, it may continue to lift price higher to subsequent resistance levels of RM0.600 and RM0.630.

However, failure to hold on to support level of RM0.530 may indicate weakness in the share price and hence, a cut-loss signal.

Richard Wong 1。50% owned Rakuten start turn to profit in 2020 Q1, and probably can do better in 2020 Q2.
2. Last year expended and spend RM50m acquired Libra finance, this year should contribute positively.
3. After Kenanga merge with ECM, their branches expanded to more then 40. Moreover, they cut cost by merge branches in same city to maximise profit.
4. 18 Feb 2020 Petronas assigned Kenanga to list its supllier's O&G unit in KLSE. This should bring benefit to Kenanga in next half of 2020.
5. Q1 KLSE turnover is 2b+, Q2 April and May we saw turnover up by 1.5 times. Estimate June turnover should be higher then Q1 average as well. Hence, we expect Q2 result announe in Aug 2020 should up by 3 times, 3.75cents earning per share.

Currently, Kenanga NTA is RM1.29, transacted price at RM0.54. DY 6% or 3.25cents. While the profit up in 2020, we estimate it's dividend should increase to 5cents or DY 9%.

In a nutshell, not many company zero impact due to MCO. During this difficult time it is hard to get a company which can up their profit by 3 times. Hence, we believe Kenanga is one of the best stock to hold in year 2020. It is much safer compare to those company with coming bad result while the share price is up. Kenanga probably is one of the best choice in year 2020.

wbwanabe For those who missed the glove bull runs, do not be despaired cos there are lots of other opportunities in this current market. Take a look into stock broking business! They are direct beneficiaries from the heavy buying and selling of stocks and warrants. I would like to recommend Bursa cos it is the Taiko in KLSE but due to its price, let me suggest an alternative, ie Kenanga. Why?
# cheaper entry at an average price of 0.555
# they are one of the most active call warrants issuing house
# best of all, they have a 50% JV with Rakuten making this the potential cash cow in their group holding

The Edge published an article on 13th May 2020 about Rakuten making profit just 3 years into its operation in Msia. That should ring some bells to those who knows how to calculate the P&L of stock broking business. What makes Rakuten different from other stock brokers are :-
# ease of opening an account- everything is done online! This hassle free application makes it attractive to current digital savvy generations. During MCO, the applications for new accounts must have hit sky rocket.
# offers the lowest stock brokerage fees in Msia. It starts at rm7 to a max of rm100. For those who buy and sell in huge amount, this cap of rm100 is one of the tools they use to max their transactions and profits. This results in very huge transaction volumes for Rakuten as well. Win win situations.

In this current market where a lot of people are being lay off or retrench, one of the avenues ppl turn to is stock market. Loan moratoriums, money received from retrenchment benefits or VSS, low interest rates (makes it attractive to borrow/share margin and unattractive to put your money in banks) plus the question of “where is the best place to grow my money” will definitely propel the earnings of stock broking companies.

Kenanga 1st quarter report is due anytime soon and your guess is as good as mine in regards to its earnings. But I am sure their 2nd quarter due in August is going to be one of their best, just like the glove companies. Hence why I recommend to look into stock broking business as an alternative. Just look at Bursa’s daily volume in recent months and the frustration we faced in executing our transactions. Huge bottle neck.....

xterrorsinx We are cautiously optimistic of our business outlook for
the year. As at end April 2020, we have reversed some of the credit provisions made in first
quarter and are on track for a turnaround in the following quarters.
03/06/2020 11:44 PM
xterrorsinx Bursa Transaction Volume
March QR 19 - 169b
March QR 20 - 219b (29.59% increase)

Brokerage Revenue
March QR 19 - 37m
March QR 20 - 48m

Brokerage Profit Margin - 15%

Volume forecast Bursa
April - 115b (actual)
March - 120b (actual)
June (forecast) - 120b
June QR 2020 - 355 (62% from March QR 2020)

Expected Brokerage Revenue June QR 2020 = 48 x 1.62 = 79m
June QR 2019 Brokerage revenue = 38.3m
Increase in brokerage revenue = 79 - 38.3 = 40.7m
Increase in PBIT due to increase in brokerage = 40.7 x 15% = RM 6.1m

thing to note:
Rakuten Users in May 2020 - 32,500
Rakuten Users in March 2020 - 70,000

100% increase. Brokerage income increase = 6.1m x 2 = 12.1m
12.1 x 70% (tax) = 8.4m extra per quarter or 33.6 NPAT/ year.

03/06/2020 11:57 PM
Value_Investor_888 Can be foreseen that next quarter earning will be very good with higher trading volume & value at Bursa due to increasing of retailers participation in the market. Furthermore, it will reverse some of the impairment made during Q1. Look at Bursa's share performance we can see Kenanga is still lag behind. Other like e-force, N2N will benefit as well from higher trading volume + value in the market!
