Why will COL pay a premium for ICAP if the maximum value it could extract is merely the NAV per share, minus expenses?

@observatory Maybe you should add some goodwill value to the Fan Club as some sort of brand loyalty. How many other listed companies out there has one?

Haha, indeed. The brand value has been cultivated over many years through newsletters and annual events. Unfortunately, it's non-transferable. If COL musters enough votes to shake up ICAP, the "Fan Club" goodwill will evaporate overnight.

@observatory Thanks for reminding me. Forgot that the iCap brand belongs to CDAM, not transferrable if it is no longer the fund manager.

@observatory you dont really get I meant or playing dumb? :)


For iCap shareholders who want to sell, take advantage of the situation by queuing at high price as close as possible to NAV, or even at a premium.

Why?
1. Despite being accused of poor governance and lousy fund management/policy by few in this forum on daily basis, COL is still buying.
2. Since COL keeps buying even the row with the fund manner, it means they need to buy, so take advantage when demand is there.
3. If someone is bidding for the rights to slaughter our goose and if lucky we get a fair portion of the egg but none after that, wont you want a premium to it? So never sell at a discount price.

@Patient investor, well, everyone is free to air his opinion. You may continue to promote yours, and hopefully it could boost confidence and sustaining the price.

I enjoy reading this forum, but I shall continue to stay away from value traps and keeping my investment on more solid ground. Good luck to anyone wishing to sell at above NAV!

Under the notice/announcement on a director's resignation to Bursa, there are these two other check boxes to be filled: "Details of any disagreement that
he/she has with the Board of
Directors
Whether there are any matters
that need to be brought to the
attention of shareholders" These are not there for show only, as ticking no indicate that the director is in agreement with the rest of the Board and there are no matters that need to be brought to the attention of the shareholders during their tenure for the record. That is why the ex Chairman needed an amendment to his resignation notice for the record, from "No" to "yes" for the first question.

For most people, the string of resignations is sufficient to raise an alarm bell. For those who choose to look the other way, no amount of evidence will be sufficient.

I’m not so naive as to expect I can get a straight answer from AGMs, regardless of whether I hold one share or > 20% of shares.

As said before, I continue to stay away from value traps. No, not even a single share.

Good luck to whoever hoping to sell close to or even higher than NAV.

In this 2023 annual report, we are pleased to feature an interview with Mr Yee Kwok Leung from Johor Bahru, one of the individuals whom we managed to attract back in 2005. He now is the most senior shareowner of icapital.biz Berhad and intends to own his shares forever.

Introduction
Mr Yee: 1 am now 89+ years old already. I live in Taman Nong Chik, Johor Bahru. I am very happy to be able to meet all of you especially Mr Tan Teng Boo whom I always admire as the Great Thinker of the East. You know, people compare him to Warren Buffett of the West, but I call him the 'Great Thinker of The East".

Q1 What were you doing before you retired?
Mr Yee: I was a civil engineer.

Q2 How long have you been investing in the stock market?
Mr Yee: More than 60 years. Like Mr Tan, he was involved in investment, very very long. Same.

Q3 When and how did you discover icapital.biz Berhad?
Mr Yee: When did I discover? Maybe 15 years ago? From the very beginning, from the inception of icapital biz Berhad (in 2005).

Q4 How did you discover it? Your friends? Your family?
Mr Yee: All by myself. I am quite interested in stocks and shares since very young.

Q5 So, is it because of the IPO?
Mr Yee: Yes, yes.

Q6 What attracted you to icapital.biz Berhad?
Mr Yee: The company. Although I invest in other things but I still think long term investment is also important and as Mr Tan always says "value investing is very important" and that is how I landed.

Q7 When you first invested in icapital biz Berhad in 2005, you were already 73 years old. What was your reason for buying shares of icapital.biz Berhad?
Mr Yee: I have full faith in i Capital, Capital Dynamics managed by Mr Tan.

JohnD0ugh

Q8 Did you get to know Teng Boo much earlier on already?
Mr Yee: Yes.

Q9 How did you come to know about Teng Boo?
Mr Yee: From the i Capital newsletter. As a matter of fact, I even talked to Mr Tan long long ago. I was in trouble with shares, and I rang up i Capital office and it so happened that he was not overseas or anywhere, and he spent time to advise me. And because of the advice, I managed to get out of it at least in a small way.

Q10 Why did you want to invest for the long term when you were already in your 70s?
Mr Yee: Actually, I keep it because I have other investments so l can afford to keep it and I can pass it on to my children and grandchildren. And as Mr Tan says, it's for long term. It's not for the short term. Long term means as he says in decades: It is not a few years, not three days. So, it is okay and I think US financial, economic problems are overdue, you know. The Big Depression that will come in 2025 or even earlier I don't know. But what I know, even now, i Capital is doing fine and as the time comes, and when it comes it will be quick and sudden. And I'm sure Mr Tan and the team will definitely know how to pick up undervalued stocks and will pass them to my children, and no problem. It's a good time. It's a bad time for certain people. It's a good time for closed-end fund, for icapital.biz Berhad.

Q11 What makes you believe in i Capital and Tan Teng Boo?
Mr Yee: I admire Teng Boo as "The Thinker of The East", and another thing I admire him is, I don't know where he gets his energy, he doesn't seem to sleep! I don't know, I don't know his private life but from what I know, from what I read, he is full of energy. And the thing that impressed me is he is a very enlightened person; he knows so many things. Not only is he an investment guru but sometimes he throws a little bit of philosophy, you know and the world culture, political system, not everything that one can think of, especially on China. People like us even in my age I also don't know enough about China but he knows so much about China. Not many people have knowledge of that. So, that alone really is enough for me to admire Mr Tan Teng Boo.

Q12 What would you tell someone who is considering investing in icapital.biz Berhad?
Mr Yee: For the young people, yes, I will tell them. I will say, this is the opportunity of a lifetime. Yes. And this depression coming maybe even worse than 1930, it is a historic epic decline you know, a collapse. It's going to be very bad. The young people like you, need to prepare and hope for the best.

TTB: As another senior citizen, what is the hope for the future of Malaysia? You didn't migrate, I didn't migrate.
Mr Yee: If Anwar can continue, and they take 5-10 years maybe, 2-3 more elections maybe will be okay. If Anwar is in charge maybe yes, I hope. There is some hope for everybody.
TTB: I asked you that question that is not investment related but because sometimes, obviously, you love the country, I love the country, that's why. So, sometimes when we look for all kinds of directions, we look for all kinds of clues.
Despite our age, sometimes, I have no answer.
Mr Yee: Despite your knowledge ......
TTB: I am not a religious person, I am not a Christian, I'm not a Buddhist and so on, I'm more.. in terms of philosophy, I am more of a Taoist. The thing is if we look through history, if we looked through all the philosophy and so on, what is going to be the future of Malaysia?
Mr Yee: Well, Malaysians may have some hope if there is a shift from the west to the east. As I remember, Xi Jinping mentioned "history will prove that we are right, on the right side of history" So if that come to path and as you know, and you wrote a lot about Anwar going to China, he should know where he should go to, so it should be okay. Long term of course maybe 10 or 20 years, maybe the next century for your children, your grandchildren maybe. For us...
TTB: At our age, it is not about dollar and cent anymore. At our age we have got enough whatever it is already. But more importantly is, what we leave behind. What sort of society, what sort of country we leave behind. Thank you.

Repost from SCIB forum:
When you see TTB who has predicted market crash since 2014 and suddenly turn bullish about Malaysia Market 2024, you should know what is coming.

In the 2023 Investor Day of icapital.biz Berhad held on 5th Nov, I gave a rare presentation on Malaysia’s longer term investment outlook. My talk was titled “Why Now is the Right Time to Invest in Malaysia.” Other than China’s economy propelling ahead, the political stability that Malaysia has been enjoying recently will allow the country to
address her many structural problems.

In the midst of the pandemic recovery, geopolitical tensions, political turmoil, soaring inflation, volatile exchange rates and extreme climate, the future seems like a scary place to be in. My simple advice then was that now is the right time to invest in Malaysia and that icapital.biz Berhad deserve a place in portfolio of investors. I continue to maintain that view

Should we still think and focus long term? A short answer is yes. The experience of a still sprightly Mr Yee is very enlightening and inspiring. He was already more than 70 when he first invested in icapital.biz Berhad, at an age where others would have quit.

Before one knows it, almost 19 years have whisked by. I am now 69 and by the time I reach 89, icapital.biz Berhad will have been around for another 20 years. As your Fund's Designated Person, I see a very attractive future ahead for icapital.biz Berhad.

First, after its 2005 inception, icapital.biz Berhad was for many years enjoying a nice premium to NAV as it attracted the right quality of share owners. As I have explained before, share owners, existing and future ones, ultimately bear the responsibility of determining the market price of a listed company especially one such as icapital.biz Berhad.

The type and quality of share owners matter. To be sure, Mr Yee is not the only long-term individual share owner of icapital.biz Berhad shares; there are many others like him with a similar mindset and there are many more out there whom we can appeal to.

I have also explained elsewhere that we have started a long-term strategy/campaign to improve the type and quality of your Fund's share owners and voting structure with a view of getting back to as close as we possibly can to the initial years (I shared some of these ideas in last year's AGM).

There are many components in this exciting strategy, which includes the recently announced innovative dividend policy, the launch of an ICAP Fan Club, increasing individual ownership of your Fund, and having a much fairer voting structure for a collective investment scheme like icapital.biz Berhad and many more.

Throughout the last 20 years, icapital.biz Berhad has undergone a unique journey albeit one with a clear public mission. The next 20 years will see more of these.

To be sure, it is going to be a long haul and to eventually succeed, we will need the support and co-operation of all like-minded individual share owners. Unfortunately, there are a few large voters/ parties who do not think like long-term share or business owners, who are focused on stock prices and act more like your Fund's wrecking ball.

A member of this group joined a forum in 2019 and has since then posted 475 comments, 92% of them of which are on icapital.biz Berhad and are negative. It is useful to repeat what Warren Buffett advised in his 1985 Berkshire Letter :

"Over the long term, there has been a more consistent relationship between Berkshire's market value and business value than has existed for any other publicly-traded equity with which I am familiar. This is a tribute to you. Because you have been rational, interested, and investment-oriented, the market price for Berkshire stock has almost always been sensible. This unusual result has been achieved by a shareholder group with unusual demographics: virtually all of our shareholders are individuals, not institutions."

We will work hard and with our heart to attract and maintain appropriate high quality ownership in icapital.biz Berhad. Your Fund can go back to a premium or close to one as we continue with this next exciting phase of your Fund's unique mission.

The Malaysian stock market has not been performing for a long time (incidentally, based on my 50 plus years of experience, there has been only one sustained Malaysian bull run, from end 1974 to June 1981).

For example, when measured from 2002 to 2022, the Jakarta stock market recorded an impressive 14.58% annual compounded gain. In that same period, Malaysia generated only 3.71%, just a tad ahead of Singapore. If measured from 2009 to 2022, Jakarta stock market still clocked in an impressive annual 12.26% compound gain.

In that same period, Malaysia generated a pathetic 3.88%, even lower than Singapore. The stock markets of Thailand, the Philippines and Vietnam also generate much higher returns than Malaysia. Is Malaysia doomed for more of the same ?

From a macro viewpoint, Malaysia's domestic political development has entered a new stage, one which I think promises a better and stable government and hence a better Malaysia. Many Malaysians do not realise that Malaysia's 4th/7th prime minister has had a devastating impact on the country, even when he was not prime minister.

For example, he incessantly attacked prime minister Abdullah Badawi's policies even though most of them made good socio-economic sense to Malaysia and should have been implemented instead of being blocked. Now, thankfully, this extremely wasteful and irresponsible era is coming to an end.

With Malaysia blessed as a country with great and plentiful human talents, the anticipated new era will give birth to a country which will once again be on the right path of fulfilling her potential. I expect the Malaysian stock market to be a beneficiary.

From Oct 2005 to 6 Sep 2023, the MSCI Malaysia index gained 1.84% annually. In the same period, the NAV of icapital.biz Berhad jumped 7.90% annually and its share price compounded 6.61%. This strong performance of your Fund hides many important truths.

To uncover them, let me break this overall performance down into two distinct phases: one with a higher cash level and another with a lower cash level.

From Oct 2005 to Dec 2013 when the cash level of icapital.biz Berhad was lower (it fell to as low at 10.5% in 2009), the NAV of icapital.biz Berhad jumped 14.85% annually and its share price compounded impressively at 11.67% per annum.

In comparison, from Jan 2014 to Dec 2019 when the cash level of your Fund was much higher (it rose to an average of 63.4%), its NAV gained only 0.71% per annum and its share price was essentially flat, even though these were still much better than the MSCI Malaysia index.

Then, from Jan 2020 to Sep 2023 when the cash level of your Fund was falling again, (by Sep 2023, it has fallen to 26.4% from over 63% in end 2019), the NAV of icapital.biz Berhad is once again rising at a higher annual compound rate of 5.06%.

What is even more interesting is that its share price has been rising at an even faster pace of 6.73% compounded annually. At this rate of increase, not only will NAV parity appear, but there could hopefully be a premium again. A lot depends on the Fund having the right quality of share owners and the performance of its future NAV.

From day one, icapital. biz Berhad has been very consistent and disciplined with its value investing approach and therefore its asset allocation. When your Fund sees attractive value, it will invest.

Otherwise it will wait even though the Designated Person has been persistently and publicly harassed by a few certain large investors, parties who are not even share owners of your Fund, for strictly sticking to your Fund's value investing philosophy.

In 1985, Buffett has already cautioned:

"You might think that institutions, with their large staffs of highly-paid and experienced investment professionals, would be a force for stability and reason in financial markets. They are not: stocks heavily owned and constantly monitored by institutions have often been among the most inappropriately valued."

A question that begs to be answered, Why wasted 6 long years from Jan 2014 to Dec 2019 in keeping 63.4% in cash?

No wonder today we have waterfall day.
HK got The Ting Hai effect and here we have The TTB effect.

KUALA LUMPUR (Feb 27): The ringgit is expected to hit 4.20-4.40 against the US dollar by year-end in view of the US Federal Reserve’s (Fed) likely interest rate cut decision in anticipation of an economic recession in the US this year, said Capital Dynamics Asset Management Sdn Bhd managing director Tan Teng Boo.

Tan was speaking at a media briefing on the stock market entitled “Is Investing in Malaysia Still Attractive Now?” here on Tuesday

When discount above 30%, better share buyback, use at lest 10-20% from remaining current cash pool, consider it as invest a counter with guarantee 30% profit per year. If so, ICAP will not miss opportunity if market no crash and can keep hold cash, NAV will also increase. I don't think new dividend system will works. As long term investor, I will not emphasize discounted price because don't want to sell. So far TTB too focus on narrowing discounted price. What long term invstor emphasize is good performance of NAV. Best solution is share buy back if market no crash. TTB is waiting market crash like 2008/09, which already wait for 15 years, actually 2020 is another opportunity, but he didn't take advantage of this opportunity. If you go back 2012 and use 30% share buyback strategy I mentioned above, and assume next 30% discounted price will appear again in every 2 or 3 years, means you have opportunity to share buyback every 2-3 years using 10 or 20% cash, how much current NAV now? I think amazing NAV will cause the discount price range to automatically narrow. Not sure whether TTB learn Kelly Strategy?

NAV hit 3.80. Thanks Mr. Tan.

For iCap shareholders who want to sell, take advantage of the situation by queuing at high price as close as possible to NAV, or even at a premium.

Why?
1. Despite being redflagged on governance and lousy fund management/policy in i3 forum on daily basis, COL is still buying.
2. Since COL keeps buying even the row with the fund manner, it means they need to buy, so take advantage when demand is there.
3. If someone is bidding for the rights to slaughter our goose and if lucky we get a fair portion of the egg but none after that, wont you want a premium to it? So never sell at a discount price.
