jinghee Most of the glove companies already meet together to increase the price for distributor, i think probably from previoysly USD25 to USD40 - USD50. Topglove and supermax have own distributor in certain area can sell at retail price but it is only 10% to 20% volume. This is is increase selling price about doubled / ctn but for the total volume case. So, the earning is going to explode even higher.

lancefire Fundamentally speaking we are still quite some time away from a cure.

1. Vaccine trials are running in China but proper tests will definitely take time (You won't wanna take a product that gives you immunity for current Covid viruses but unable to tackle newer strains when product is released.)
2. You also won't wanna take a vaccine that gives you immunity now but side effects that only develops much later on (e.g dengue vaccines withdrawn in Philippines due to incidences of severe diseases resulting in death)

I don't think gloves are overvalued if outbreaks are still happening worldwide (not taking into account second or third waves yet). Gloves are not just used in healthcare but also in labs and various practises with mass human contact. The new norm will escalate the usage of gloves to an unprecedented level.

Hope to accumulate more this week.

Mabel I entered the Gloves Industry when our Government announced that we are donating 18 million Gloves to China to fight C19 early this year.

That announcement by Teresa compelled to starts investing on Gloves. I decided to take her call after what she did to help our Plantation which is generating good margin at that time. Beside my O&G selections were also doing great.

So it's time to give back. Harta was the first company that came in mind based on kk7168 recommendation when we were engaged together in Greatec. This investment is followed with Top Gloves, Kossan and eventually Supermax before the rally starts.

Yes I agree all rubber stocks are now over value. Gloves currently is currently overbought...PE has already exploded way above Malaysian average

Top Glove = PE 106
Hartalega: 92
Kossan = PE 51
Supermx = PE 77

These Fantastic Four (Top Glove, Hartalega, Kossan and Supermax price) continue to climb none stop. The main reason is because all of them provide 100% medical gloves. There is a worldwide shortage medical glove.

Let's evaluate the Pros and Cons


Global demand for rubber gloves is estimated to reach 300 billion gloves this year, with an expected annual growth of 12%. Of that, 188 billion gloves will be produced by Malaysia which is the world’s largest producer and the leading exporter of rubber gloves, contributing 63% of the global supply. Most of the supply are coming from these Fantastic Four.

Everyone seems to say that Gloves counter are now overvalued. Here's the irony part, IB seems to be revising their TP upwards all the time..

According to Bloomberg data updated in May, there were 12 “buys” and 1 “hold” recommendations for Top Glove, with target prices (TPs) ranging from RM9.20 to RM20.50, implying further upside to its share price judging by the best-case estimate. Top Gloves closed today at RM 16.84.

Meanwhile, for Hartalega, there were eight “buys”, 11 “holds” and three “sells” recommendations, with TPs ranging from RM5.95 to RM16:50. Hartalega closed today at RM 13.18

Year to date, Hartalega’ share price has surged by some 140%, while Top Glove shares have leapt by a staggering 242%.

Industrial glove still excessive supply with low margin profit. Top Glove and Hartalega will go up to RM 100 per share in 5-year time.. Both will have a chance to be listed on Nasdaq and potential of USD 100 Billion market capitalisation in due time.

The market capitalisation (market cap) of nitrile glove manufacturer Hartalega Bhd, founded by Kuan, is RM31.11 billion and has exceeded that of most of the local banks, except for Malayan Banking Bhd (Maybank), Public Bank Bhd and CIMB Group Holdings Bhd.

In fact, Hartalega’s market cap is more than the combined market cap of five banks: Affin Bank Bhd; Alliance Bank Bhd; MBSB Bank, which is owned by Malaysia Building Society Bhd; AmBank, which is owned by AMMB Holdings Bhd, and Bank Islam, owned by BIMB Holdings Bhd.

Likewise, the market cap for Lim’s Top Glove Bhd, in which he owns 35.95%, has soared to RM26.41 billion, larger than that of some of the bluest blue chips, including IOI Corp Bhd, Petronas Dagangan Bhd and PPB Group Bhd.

Even the market cap of Kossan Rubber Industries Bhd and Supermax Corp Bhd have exceeded that of some of the local banks even though the banking business is far more capital-intensive than the manufacturers and the barriers to entry are much higher.

Suddenly, all these Fantastic Four are performing much better than our Established Banks.


Looking from outside, valuation of glove co is difficult to determine now as there are too many variables like ASP (average selling price), raw material price of nitrile and rubber , the exchange rate and most important composition of percentage of each sold to regular customers and spot customers. In addition, the spare capacity available before the run up of demand would determine extend of extra profit.

So back to your point, sell if you must to lock your profits. Whenever possible, do not sell all so that you can continue to enjoy this rally.

For me, it's nice when you have all the Fantastic 4 in your collection. It's a very healthy race.. Just like the race between Armada and KNM and the race between Serbadk and Dayang..

Summing up..

Earlier, some smart Alex were saying SELL in May and Go Away...

They forget, it's freezing cold up in the North Poles...Santa Gloves actually came to town in May...

These Fantastic Four Gloves Counters rockets like no business in May...

So when these smart Alex came back today in June all the Gloves trains have left..

Always stay invested and continue contributing to the Global Community. YOU will get rewards from all direction.. Trust me...

Happy_lucky Can try hengyuan 4324 .Hengyuan now is better than other o n g company ,because that only focus on the refining . The profit depends on crack spread, when the crude oil price decrease ,the cost will decrease and increase the crack spread profit but demand will decrease and the sale of volume also decrease. When the crude oil price increase, crack spread will be narrow but the demand will increase, demand increase and the sales of volume will increase , so overall increase the profit. History will come back from Rm2 to RM19. Super undervalue. Can limit up due to only 300 millions share.

projectwisdom hi guys, I've written out a pretty detailed look into UG Healthcare and you can use it as a basis of comparison for Kossan. It details a basic but fundamentally strong view of how UG is still significantly undervalued compared to the Malaysian glove market.
