Ann Joo offers more upside (part 1)

Publish date: Mon, 18 Sep 2017, 04:58 PM
Let's make money together.

Lower PE accorded by market to LionInd due to its loss-making retail business - Parkson.


With recent rally in steel counters, among the top steel makers, Masteel 's share price moved faster than others, up 52% within 1 month, further fuelled by its bonus issue ex-date (26 Sept) announcement. 4Q PE ratio runs up to 13.2x, ahead of average of 4 counters above.


In terms of share price, SSteel is the second runner up with 34% increase within 1 month.  PE ratio now stands at 11.1x.


Industry cost leader - AnnJoo's share price moved slower than others, merely increased 17.6% from one month ago. PE ratio at 10.8x, less demanding than Masteel and SSteel.

Given its superior profit margin (refer earlier article on AnnJoo's cost leadership in steel industry), decent dividend policy with 60% payout & slower share price rally than others steel counters, I think AnnJoo has more upside going forward.

This is not a good comparison.
You should compare the share price begin from last year (i.e. 1st July).. then you will realise Annjoo share price has increased much more than the other 3 peers.

So now the rooms to growth is depends on the coming quarter profit, instead of claiming Annjoo share price movement is behind the other 3 peers.

Dear Kingdom, which substance in my words have you not understood? I never meant to be a Guru, and neither will I. I am just another ordinary forum member with ordinary capital trying to find some ordinary gain. Thanks for the compliment though
