NoTimeToTrade, you are not wrong, all your points are valid..

It’s just that I also subscribed to Buffets advice with his baseball analogy - “The trick in investing is just to sit there and watch pitch after pitch go by and wait for the one right in your sweet spot.. “

I guess i have this value investing mindset. I don't want to overpay. The price crashed last time due to raw materials prices skyrocketed during pandemic and only start coming down last year, It affected DLMI as well. Another thing that make me nervous is Ffb almost half billion debt.

I like FFB I want to buy, but couldn’t find reasonable price for entry. When it crashed to almost RM1 last time the institutions were snapping them and pushing the price up.. I was hoping it goes sub RM1..

Buying FFB right now is like buying a company with annual profit of RM1 million growing 20%-30% a year at the price of RM60 million. Just to put it into perspective..

I like to support local but FFB valuations is higher than tech stocks like Facebook, Alphabet, Microsoft, etc..

FFB current P/E is 61.. why?

Last QR operating profit excluding accelerated depreciation and one off was RM 59m. If they can maintain that every QR, Annual Operating Profit will be around RM200m. Current market cap is around RM2B, that brings P/E of 10 roughly.

Price prediction RM130, if new factory operates at full capacity (2x old factory) and raw materials prices maintain at current. Might take few years though.

Used to be RM67. It could return to that price if they can achieve operating profit around RM50+m per QR, which they already did last QR if excluding accelerated depreciation and one off.

FFB growth is high YoY but valuation and debt are on the high side. If not for EPF and Aberdeen buying it will be sub RM1.

Fundamental and valuation are good. Future growth with high tech double capacity new factory is good. Plan to be regional manufacturing hub is good. But EPF still has 2.9m shares, are they going to keep selling?

From the QR, regarding accelerated depreciation.

“Pursuant to the Company’s announced investment in our future manufacturing activities, DLMI has identified assets in its Petaling Jaya factory that will not be transitioned to the new site.”

“In light of this, DLMI has implemented accelerated depreciation for the mentioned assets at the start of 2021 financial year, continuing into 2022, 2023 and 2024.”

Dlady actual P/E is hidden by accelerated depreciation cost (due to moving to new factory) and one off (BAPA agreement).

Current P/E is 23 with operating profit of RM27m (latest QR). But operating profit without accelerated depreciation and one off is RM59m (latest QR), that is more than double.

As for EPF, they been reducing (diversifying) stake in Dlady from around 10% to now around 5%. And have been buying, accumulating FFB to now around 10% stake in the company.

The question is, has EPF stop selling? If yes then there’s no more resistance to go up.

My theory EPF is diversifying to FFB, they have been accumulating to about 10% now.

FFB has high growth, but also high debt. Valuation is high P/E 59, but I guess they are banking on the high growth.

Dlady numbers and valuation are good. Growth is decent now, hopefully the new factory will contribute to more growth.

Growth is good but debt too high.
Debt RM444m, revenue (TTM) RM 756m.
P/E is 55, rich valuation probably anticipating high growth.

P/E 58, high.. but nice revenue growth.

P/E below 10 at the current price is achievable.

If accelerated depreciation goes away, and if they can maintain Quarterly Operating Profit around 50m.

Current Operating Profit excluding accelerated depreciation and one-offs is 59.1m.

Current P/E is 21 with accelerated depreciation and one-offs.

From the latest Quarterly Report,

“On a like for-like-basis Operating Profit excluding accelerated depreciation and one-offs is RM59.1 million, marking a 363.2% increase versus the same quarter in 2022. This increase is mainly driven by growth in revenue and the softening costs of dairy raw materials.”

Operating Profit is actually RM59.1m, if excluding accelerated depreciation due to the new factory and one off costs for BAPA agreement.

Buy if you can hold min 2-3 years. It’s a cyclical play. Bonus play new factory with double capacity but you need 2-3 year to see its full potential.

Dutch Lady gearing up for the future
By Sharen Kaur
November 6, 2023

"When we go live next year, we will be doubling our current capacity. We also have land on the side to double the capacity again in the future.

"So technically, we can manufacture four times more than our current capacity in Petaling Jaya. If you have a factory, you build it based on what you need today, and of course, you always need extra capacity for growth. If you are going to invest RM540 million over a journey of five years, you want to make sure you are building a factory for the next 10 to 20 years.

Yes not many people know but they do inform it in the quarterly report. But that’s good for the investors that do their research. The more you learn the more you earn.

Also not many people know the new factory will be a regional manufacturing hub.

“The new manufacturing hub will house a distribution centre, enabling DLMI to operate an end-to-end production cycle. It will also have a research and development (R&D) centre to enable the dairy company to create and innovate products with export potential, she said.

Ramjeet said DLMI wants to build a regional manufacturing hub and together with parent company Royal FrieslandCampina NV, it is the company’s commitment to raise the nutrition intake among children while at the same time upskill the community.”

Our top picks for the sector are:
• DLADY (OP, TP: RM27.00) for: (i) its resilient top line driven by the steady demand for staple food products, even amid the global economic uncertainties, (ii) the prospective growth in its margins from FY23 onwards due to falling food commodity prices, and (iii) its well-established brand and the escalating recognition of the nutritional advantages of its dairy products.

Kenanga: Consumer staples offer topline defensiveness as food commodity prices ease

KUALA LUMPUR (Sept 6): Consumer staples sectors, specifically food and beverage (F&B) players, may offer more defensive investment opportunities with potential margin improvement due to easing food commodity prices, said Kenanga Research.
Notwithstanding that, the research house anticipates a steady uptick in consumer spending post the conclusion of the recent six state elections and extending into the fourth quarter of the year, bolstered by the government's accelerated implementation of policy initiatives.
“Additionally, the traditional year-end festive and shopping season is likely to provide a boost to market sentiment. Our outlook is further supported by a stable job market and indications that inflation has reached its peak,” said Kenanga in a note on Wednesday.

The research house said it favours Dutch Lady Milk Industries Bhd (‘outperform’, target price [TP]: RM27) due to its resilient top line underpinned by steady demand for staple food items despite an uncertain global economic outlook, the upside potential of its margins given the softening food commodity prices, and its strong brand recognition and increasing awareness of the nutritional value of dairy products..
