In the past, the dividend reinvestment (i.e. dividend is paid via issuance of new shares instead of cash) has always be at about 10% discount on the average closing price.

So let's say you are entitled to dividend of RM100. So if you opt for cash dividend, you get RM100 cash.

Let's assume the average closing price of the shares for the past 5 trading days is RM2, then apply 10% discount. That gives you a share price of RM1.80 per share. So if you go for the dividend reinvestment, you will get RM100/RM1.80 in shares, i.e. approx 55 shares. So if the share price remains at RM2, then you can sell the 55 shares for RM110!

Why do banks (e.g. Maybank etc) do this? Simple reason... they need capital for their lending business. So if they pay out cash, there is less capital for them to lend.

If LTAT were to ever decide to exit Affin, Sumitomo Mitsui Banking Corporation can easily buy over.

If Affin can maintain 2021 PBT of about RM700 mil going forward, and assuming P/E ratio of 10 (most other banks about this size has PE ratio of about 10-14), that would give a rough valuation of RM7b. So price per share should be around RM3.29

Posted by kitmanworld > 5 days ago | Report Abuse

so means the current price of affin is only between RM2.10 to the most at RM2.20 ? Or need wait result from QR in AGM ?

A bank selling for less than half its net assets value giving a 12.5 sen dividend is very undervalued.

All shareholders entitled to the 12.5 sen dividend is eligible to elect for the dividend reinvestment plan. There is procedure to follow and a payment of RM10 for stamp duties.

EPF is so desperate for cash that they can't wait for the 12.5 sen dividend and keeps selling everyday.

Posted by kitmanworld > 1 day ago | Report Abuse

Nevermind, Affin is undervalued, so it is good time buying. Its a dark horse. Deswhy FF kept buying and disposing. $ made out of the weak hands. They're institutional investor anyway.

I would like to see the price lower, so I can get reinvestment price lower. I BELIEVE IN THE LONG TERM POTENTIAL, NOT SHORT TERM.

@aklobi, initially price was below RM2 due to LTAT's daily selling. After the selling ceased, price climbed up above RM2. Then EPF started selling daily. Once EPF cease selling, price will climb to RN2.50.

I think the price increased because of the PBT increasing from RM386 mil in for year 2020 to RM700 mil for 2021.

Have you guys registered for the AGM? It will be held online.

I am in AGM. There is going to be special dividend on top of the 12.5 sen dividend at the end of the year. Special dividend will come from the sale of the asset management business

Their new dividend policy
1. minimum dividend 25% of profit to be paid as dividends
2. however, that they intend to pay 40% to 60% of their net profits as dividends

So the 12.5sen dividend represents 50% of their net profits for 2021.
