BLee A good article for sharing:
https://www.freemalaysiatoday.com/category/leisure/2020/09/16/the-real-purpose-of-investing/
I believed investment/investors in MFCB are long term with very good return. Happy Trading n Happy Malaysia Day.
16/09/2020 8:48 AM
warrantKing if next QR maintain 18sens (Or hit higher 20sens EPS) due to higher utilization rate of hydropower plant .

I believe RM 8-10 will be no problem.

The company can generate more cash flow after they pay off power plant's debts , which might be achieved in 3 to 4 years time.

Fujisnow The reason why FMR LLC is disposing off the shares:
https://foreignpolicy.com/2020/04/22/science-shows-chinese-dams-devastating-mekong-river/
03/10/2020 9:59 AM
Henry8833 Mkt needs to absorb FMR shares as they are exiting. Also, look like for now its share maybe almost fully valued as it is malaysian mkt, which may only give PE 10, unless it has other catalyst like packaging company far exceeding expectation, or give higher than current dividend yield.
05/10/2020 12:47 PM
Hahaqwe hahahah coming quarter expected to be the best quarter ever. My forecast PAT 90mil as energy factor around 95% and the contribution from limestone and packaging sector! TP1=Rm9.5 TP2=RM12 TP3=RM13.5

14/10/2020 11:07 AM
Henry8833 They will still sell, just no need to disclose. Surprise they cannot find buyer to buy in block. Sell like this every day is costly. Mean no fund interested to buy? They must pay higher dividend to attract mutual funds.

16/10/2020 7:32 PM
Choivo Capital I really like MFCB, but fitch just downgraded Laos from B- to CCC

https://www.fitchratings.com/research/sovereigns/fitch-downgrades-laos-to-ccc-23-09-2020

"In addition, the state-owned electricity company, Electricite du Lao (EDL), appears to be coming under increasing financial pressure due a rapid increase in debt-financed investment and near-term cash flow issues resulting from a drought over the past year which weighed on electricity production. Outstanding debt of EDL is about USD5 billion (26% of GDP), as advised by the authorities, much of which consists of on-lending from the government. EDL poses contingent liability risk for the government if EDL is unable to meet its external debt service obligations."

EDL is the guy working with MFCB and paying MFCB for the electricity. If Laos can no longer buy from MFCB (and this is assuming no doubtful debts), can MFCB sell to other countries like vietnam etc fast enough? is the transmission lines for those built up d?
17/10/2020 10:28 PM
gemfinder Tis downgrade took place back in sept. If realy bad news, mfcb px oredi crashed but it wasnt. Dun try to pour cold water
17/10/2020 11:10 PM
BLee @Choivo capital, I also likes MFCB very much. Please refer an old article to debunk your fear...
https://www.theedgemarkets.com/article/mega-firsts-laos-turbine-likely-be-installed-march
Below is an extract of a paragraph from the above article dated around Jan. 2019.
"EDL will pay Don Sahong according to the energy availability and the payments are guaranteed by the Laos’ finance ministry."
In my opinion, any financial problem of EDL shall NOT affect MFCB as payments are guaranteed.

Happy Trading.
18/10/2020 1:05 AM
Choivo Capital l I agree it is guaranteed.

But here's the problem. The transmission lines now are connected only to EDL (unless im mistaken) and not to other providers as well. Which means that for now, only EDL can buy, no one else can buy from MFCB, for now.

Secondly, payments are in USD not Laotian Kip, if EDL no money, means no money, where to find USD?

Third, EDL already owes outside USD5bil.

I would keep track on the receivables if i were you.

Unless ofc, the transmission lines can sell to Cambodia directly, and the amounts paid by Cambodia goes direct to MFCB pocket.
18/10/2020 5:08 PM
pinnaclegrade I think there is nothing to worry about, if you read the Fitch commentary fully..
it also states:

" A recently announced joint venture between EDL and China Southern Power Grid Co., Ltd (A+/Stable) should boost investment in the electrical transmission network, which has increasingly become a bottleneck for increasing electricity exports."
18/10/2020 6:04 PM
Choivo Capital Hmm probably, the new 500kv line direct to cambodia via EDL means they can supply cambodia, i just wonder who collect on their behalf.

At only 75% efficiency so far, i think still got long way to go.

But man, we must really account for the possible risk something happen to EDL, which has increased somewhat.
18/10/2020 9:05 PM
pjseow Out of 260 mw, 195 mw is sold to Cambodia ,balance is sold to Laos . There was a seperate line connected to combodia。EDL is like TNB.of malaysia. So far I have not heard TNB do not pay their IPP s even when.TNB were in the red . IF EDL do not pay, mfcb can just shut off the transmission. EDL cant give the stupid.excuse of no money when they collect money from their consumers and make a profit out of it .
18/10/2020 9:43 PM
BLee @Choivo Capital, I think you missed the wording will 'pay on energy availability', which means no matter can or cannot sell, needs to pay and guaranteed by the Laos' Finance Ministry. MFCB gapped up on open trading, assume non-issue..Happy Trading.
19/10/2020 9:24 AM
roger1138 QR must be very good.
19/10/2020 9:29 AM
Henry8833 I think Choivo got a point. We need to monitor the receivables, which is more than RM 200m in quarter ended 30 June 2020. It is higher than the quarterly sales, means more than 3 months turnover days. I don't know the whether it is normal or not. Any one has idea on payment term?
19/10/2020 2:17 PM
Henry8833 Country risk. Could this be the reason fmr selling every day?
19/10/2020 2:44 PM
BLee @Henry8833, Extract from MFCB Q2(June) 2020 report for your information.
"Receivables of 215,938,000 - Increase mainly due to increase in trade receivable from EDL on higher energy sales. The average receivable turnover of EDL is 3-4 months."
Sometime increase in Receivable is good as it show expansion of business.
Happy Trading
19/10/2020 3:19 PM
Henry8833 Thank you BLee for info. Let monitor this in the coming quarter to see whether it continued to increase and maintain at 3-4 months turnover day.
