1 interesting company that you could look into is KYM HOLDINGS BERHAD (KYM - 8362). The company is dealing with manufacturing of paper packaging and corrugated carton box.

What do you think of KYM in the short to medium term moving forward as fundamental outlook improve and technical outlook seems to bottom out and ready to jump up.
