But I think this dip of confidence will not last long due to what is going to happen:
1. Announcement of excellent Q2 result by end of Feb (I predict Q2 EPS to be around 25 sen)
2. Those scared investors will realise that the cash to invest in Guocera is only about a quarter of the total cash accumulated.
3. Higher final dividend to be announced in May
4. Once the new plant is completed and operate by end of 2024, EPS will increase. And when EPS increases, dividend payout is likely to increase to keep the same payout ratio. The effect of higher EPS and dividend that occur at the same time is likely to make a double strike on the share price where market will re-rate this stock at higher PE.
So any investor who want to invest in this counter should wait for the above four events to complete, and decide later whether it is worthy to hold on to the share after the predicted rise in mid or late 2025.

I once thought that release of this news could stir up fear in some investors and that will create a buy opportunity. Looks like that now.

I think lots of shareholders are afraid of the investment in Guocera expansion. The plan is still a proposal that has not yet been decided, as far as I know. I somehow have the feeling that this plan will not be materialised in the end and annual dividend payout will increase to 65-70 sen per year. If the expansion is cancelled, if I were Tan Sri Quek, I might consider to sell Guocera away, and the proceed and the accumulated cash pile will be distributed out, at least partially, to a healthy level.

What I hope the most is payout the 400 mil to us. If they do not want to pay out, then better invest in something with 10% IRR or higher. The worst is to keep the 400 mil until our last day.

He could have thought of that when he was much younger. If he did recently, he had just lost a good opportunity to do so in last year when HLIND was hit by pandemic and stock price dip unreasonably. Now the industry is experiencing strong rebound. The earning in current fiscal year has a very good chance to break record high. It was hard and is only going to be harder to privatise this company. My personal view is that HLIND is still too small to worth his energy, time and patience to do so. I think he'd only pick the big game like Guoco eventhough he failed at last. At the age of 82, I don't think he has the time and need to do this either. The best choice is to cheer with minority shareholders and make everyone happy like the late Tan Sri Teh did.

I feel that HLIND is led by management and owned by major shareholder who are focussing on the profitability and stability of the business only rather than market cap and liquidity of the share. I don't think they would even spend a night to think about bonus issue. But higher ordinary dividend and a better than history special dividend is something more likely to happen. The large pile of cash, I predict that it would be released in next 5 years either in the form of dividend or business expansion (e.g. the plan to expand Guocera). The reason is very simple, if you can't find a good investment opportunity even in a recession, why continuing holding the cash beyond the reasonable level? Other than that I actually hope one day Hong Leong Yamaha and Guocera can be listed seperately to maximize the total market cap. I just don't see the synergy and value to put motorcycle and tile business under the same group. It is currently being like that probably because Guocera is not big enough to be justifiable as a seperate listed company but this could be different when the RM 400 mil expansion takes place. It is about two times the current property, plant and equipment of the Group.

Hi Ykloh, the price of this stock is very sensitive to the dividend amount. A small increase of dividend will cause the price to grow significantly. This is also partly due to its lower floating tickets (which is reflected by its lower trading volume also). One year later you might want to recall this.

Hi Messi, according to the above news, 700,000 motors could have been sold in Malaysia in 2022. I think the real figure is above 680,000 or around that. In addition to that HLIND is planning to build 400 mil new porcelain plant (Guocera expansion) and complete it by end of 2024. I believe this will be funded internally and only costs a fraction of its net cash. Though HLIND did not disclose the IRR but I expect this to result in the increase of EPS by above 10 sen annually. Although main markets might be heading to recession but energy crisis in Europe for the present and coming years might be a golden opportunity for high energy consumption industry in Asia such as Malaysia which has the access to both the advanced technology to meet EU standard and cheaper energy prices.

High energy prices in Europe makes our tiles more competitive in international market. Don't forget that Italy and Spain are top 5 export countries in the world. They are both hit with high energy cost and yet their sales are intact, that shows how high is the demand.

Hi Alexnada, because it is going to show record high of quarterly revenue (quite sure) and EPS (>50% sure) in the quarterly report that is to be released soon. And looking at the share price pattern, I suspect someone is trying to put a ceiling in order to collect more tickets from impatient shareholders before the good news is finally released.

It has now happened for quite some time. With recent Q4 result I think the price will inch slowly towards RM 10 till the announcement of next quarter result. For the share price to grow to RM 10, it requires annual EPS of close to RM 1 and annual dividend that is close to 60 sen, in view of rising interest rate environment and trend.

And you know how much pop corn money you can save by watching movie at home throghout the year?

At time of recession, middle class will reduce their expenditure for entertainment. But I think sound speaker is quite basic because the cheapest entertainment one can have in a modern day is to watch movie at home (especially for a family of 4 or 5) instead of going to cenema, or listening to radio instead of going to concert. For teenagers, it may be playing computer games instead of going out for vocation. None of this can be done in a decent way without a proper speaker or sound system. First they did it because they have the money but not the freedom to travel due to covid, now they are going to do it again because they don't have enough money for more expensive activities. Same thing for different reasons.

I anticipate the attraction will turn strong when the price touches RM 2.50 (dividend yield 8%). I believe Q2 result will remain strong and so it gives very strong support at RM 2.50 from now to end of August. By end of August the price movement will be again driven by Q2 result and US economic outlook. So I think reward is higher than risk at prices below RM 2.50.

There's more small shareholders in this stock. So price is more volatile. According to TA downside risk is high so it encourages TA investors to sell. Fundamental wise I guess in coming one year profit will stay stagnant because of interest rate hike and inflation which will erode the purchasing power of consumers. This will somewhat cancel off the bullish outlook of smart audio and musical instrument demand. To be Conservative, expecting annual EPS 35 sen and dividend 20 sen.

@LossAversion, have you visited UP plantation before? Did you visit the refinery? I hope I would be able to visit these places one day but getting the entry permit might be difficult. Visiting Bernam Bakery should be a more realistic goal. :)
