Aiseh.. what do we know? Anxious was right all along.

@Anxious, sorry to hear of your loss. This is why when market is down, I try not to read the comments on i3, as it can really affect your emotions and cause you to panic unnecessarily. As for me, I'm holding, and I've been adding. Reason being, this is my investment money, which I can afford to keep in the stocks for a long time. No reason to sell at this level if I didn't sell at 4, or 3. Good luck. Hope you get to recover some of your losses.

Revenue is close to RM1B almost similar to last Qr. NP margin 22.5% vs Kossan's recent 13%. So much better result than expected. If not for the huge tax deduction, it would've been impressive!

Kossan was the first glove stock I bought. But I got greedy and started buying Harta, then got greedier and bought TG, thinking "can't go wrong with the biggest of the big 4". Ha!

@bang_miskin worse, no dividend. Zero. KOSONG. Why did I even bother putting my money in that stock when I could've gotten so much dividend from Harta and Kossan!

Posted by bang_miskin > 3 hours ago | Report Abuse

@YourQuirkyWays29 Yes bad sentiment from HK listing was a factor, but I think lower net profit to shareholders and smaller profit margin plays a bigger role in the recent sell-off. There is little indication that Topglove profit will rebound the next quarter, since we expect ASP to further decline. I think it also puts a pressure on Harta because the market now expects Harta to be at the lower range of the pre-pandemic profit level.

I hear you, bang miskin. What I've sold a few months ago ex-div at 5.52, I've bought back at lower prices. As the price goes lower, I need to find stocks to sell, in order to buy more Harta, but in this market, there aren't any stocks that can be sold for a profit. Unless I let go of heavy stocks that are slightly in the negative territory, like Tenaga. Really pocket kosong already. LOL!!

Observatory, thank you for taking the time to share your knowledge. I split the bet between Harta, Top Glove and Kossan (in that order). Harta makes up the most of my investment in Bursa at 23%. Over invested yes, but it used to be close to 50% before last qtr ex-dividend. That was nerve-wrecking LOL!

Posted by observatory > Feb 12, 2022 8:13 PM | Report Abuse

@tonypang01, Top Glove pre-pandemic earnings was above RM400m per year. The company has since expanded its capacity by nearly half. Let's assume upon normalization, sales can keep up and margin remains like pre-Covid. So earning increases proportionally, say reaching RM700m. With current market cap is RM17.7b, implied forward PE is 25 times.

But Top Glove has almost zero net cash now (after deducting perpetual sukuk). It may manage to raise cash via HK listing but at the expense of equity dilution. The plus is being the largest producer may confer advantages.

With this naïve calculation, the forward PE of Harta at 34X > Top Glove 25X > Supermax & Kossan at about 20X.

Net cash consideration: Harta ~15% market cap, Top Glove zero, Kossan 40%, Supermax 100% (but watch out whether Supermax may squander its cash in US, not to mention we have no idea when sanctions will be lifted)

Based on the relative track records of these firms, the market seems to have priced them in the right sequence. I have no idea which one offers a better tradeoff.

Maybe split the bet? Maybe wait until there is more clarity on future normalization path?

@JSJH02 Thank you for your sharing. Along with your points below, I also concur with Observatory's point on value investing. The point is to buy the stock at a fair price, and even better when it's undervalued, but gotta be careful not to to be led into a value trap.

Figure out what work in long term is a very powerful mental model.

Just think of what is going to work in long term. What is a sustainable business? there are few business models are work in long term. A simple and working one the low-cost producer. One of my favorite.

Harta is the lowest cost producer yet the most innovative glove manufacturer. They focus relentlessly to reduce cost, improve productivity and and quality of the product.

They are the 1st glove moving into Industrial 4.0, they digitized their plants (so far 3 plants have been fully digitalized).

They are trial running their automation of glove packing process, which is the bottleneck of the whole automation process currently. This very reduce their manpower required to be reduce by 20%, thus reduce cost.

They are the most efficient player that able to produce 50,000 pieces of glove per hour which is unmatchable.

They spend more resources that other players on R&D, and implement best practices. They are the 1st player that produce medical nitrile glove commercially. They achieved multiple industry 1st.

They focus on company culture and DNA that keep improving and innovating. Being a low cost producer is good but others will catch up one day. But develop a culture and DNA that keep improve on efficiency, lowering cost and innovating are far more crucial in long term.

Harta is a one of the most well manage company in Bursa, its management is honest and skilled. Instead of talking big, they focus on business. They always under promise but over deliver.

Glove is going to have a secular growth post covid, plus it is already a grow industry.

Harta have so many correct matrix as an investment.

Don't focus on share price but its business. They definitely will do well in future

@observatory appreciate your explanation. For the past two qtrs including this one, Harta has been paying out more than 60% of its net profit, made possible by its strong cash reserves. When profit normalises, it is my hope that 1) DY is higher than FD and/or 2) Share price would've bottomed, and will trend upwards.


2022-02-10 15:15 | Report Abuse

@kinuxian likewise with regards to utilities, banking, plantation.. managed to take profit, no losses here but generally not happy with the meagre returns from these sectors LOL! Good luck!


2022-02-10 14:55 | Report Abuse

@kinuxian obviously you can't expect double digit DY unless the business continues to make supernormal profits. As long as the dividend is higher (hopefully much higher) that FD rates, I'm happy. That's why we diversify, invest in growth stocks, and dividend stocks.


2022-02-10 14:47 | Report Abuse

@kinuxian yes you're right. But for now, that is the dividend I've gotten during the period of time when I could've gotten a lot less had I kept the money in FD. You might say, "but you could've used the money to invest in other stocks." Then my reply is, people who invest in other stocks in other sectors are losing money too, esp in recent months when there's selldown in consumer and construction and tech. Could've should've.. hindsight is 20/20.


2022-02-10 14:39 | Report Abuse

Harta's dividend payout for the last 4 qtrs (including this one): 17.7+14.80+35.2+19.75=87.45sen

If your average cost is RM8 = DY 11%, av cost RM7 = DY 12% pa, av cost RM6 = DY 15%.

As long as Harta continues to pay out good dividend and make it worth my while being "stuck" here, I have no complaints, since this money would've gotten crappy interest if I had kept it in FD. When the opportunity arise, I will definitely buy more to lower my cost and increase my DY. Many people are making losses investing in other sectors but without this kind of attractive dividend to show for at the end of the day. All is not lost my fellow glovers.

@observatory: Thank you for your analysis. This was also stated in the QR:
"The construction for the upcoming expansion under NGC 1.5, is currently underway and the Group targets to commission the first line by October 2022. NGC 1.5 will house 4 additional production plants which will contribute 19 billion pieces to the annual installed capacity. With the completion of NGC 1.5, the Group’s annual installed capacity will increase to 63 billion pieces per annum."
From 42 billion to 63 billion, this close to 45% increase in capacity should mitigate the drop in ASP and improve it's revenue and profits. Demand must be very strong for them to target this increase in capacity.

Posted by observatory > Feb 9, 2022 5:29 PM | Report Abuse

By late 2021, Harta had already commissioned all lines in Plant 6, and 4 out of 10 lines of Plant 7. The total capacity then was ~42 billion pieces per annum. Today it still has one more line at Plant 7 to be commissioned, implying a total capacity of about 43-44 billion.

@YourQuirkyWays29 I'm not an expert, but managed to make some coffee money selling on strength, buying on weakness, and repeating this. I did not sell on strength two days ago, thinking that price will move higher in the next few days in light of the latest wave of Covid surge in our region. What I failed to take into account is the release of QR! AIYO! No choice, just hold and wait for the next opportunity. Buy on weakness, sell on strength. That's the only way to trade.

The price fluctuated between RM5 - RM6 - RM7 several times in just the past 6 months alone, if you are so good at trading, you should've been able to make money by buying low and selling high.

Comparing current revenue and profit to supernormal times, of course it will go down eventually. How can a business keep making supernormal profits forever? We should be comparing it to pre-pandemic times!

Posted by bang_miskin > Feb 8, 2022 6:52 PM | Report Abuse

"...You mention that ASP will further decline by 40%. Too steep and doesn't explain why all glove companies are expanding they capacity. I do not agree that there is a price war with China, and ASP remains elevated compared to pre-pandemic levels. The Rm3bil or RM5bil no matter how you see it, is a game changer considered that most glove companies are leveraged before the pandemic and are strapped for cash. One can do quite a lot with the money, like diversifying (i.e. cabuting) into other industries. On the other hand like you say they are continue to expand on gloves near the Thai border! Such a foolish long-term move if ASP is set to decline by 40% no?"

Not overly thrilled with the result but not disappointed either. Considering their revenue is lower than Top Glove, yet NP and NP Margin are so much higher. This QR is quite similar to June 2020 QR but dividend being paid out is satisfactory at 14.8sen vs 2.1sen then. Btw net profit of close to RM260million in one quarter is really fantastic. How much net profit they earn per day?!
