Oil prices are hitting all-time highs worldwide, creating long lines and panic buying. If that reads like an old story, consider this: we're not talking about fuel oil here. We're talking about food oil, and sunflower oil and palm oil in particular.
In the case of sunflower oil, it's because of a sharp decrease in supply due to the war in Ukraine. Russia and Ukraine together accounted for 75 percent of sunflower oil production before the war began, with Ukraine the world's largest exporter. With harvests in Ukraine stalled , and sanctions in place against Russian firms, production and exports have slumped: exports from Ukraine are down 95 percent since the invasion, and if the war grinds on, Ukrainian farmers risk missing their harvesting and planting windows.
The sunflower oil shortage has hit some Western countries particularly hard. Sunflower oil is one of the most popular cooking oils in Germany and the UK, both of which love their deep-fried foods and value (or valued) sunflower oil for its relatively low price point and comparatively high smoke point. The shortage has created runs on sunflower oil in both countries, with grocery stores rationing sales after shelves were cleared of all supplies, and some restaurants in Germany taking fries off the menu.
Love the correction. Can buy cheap cheap. Whatever oil Indonesia going to export will still be not enough for the world. Imagine the population of India, Bangla, Pakistan, Africa, etc. All need to eat. The market for palm oil is so big.
FGV Registered Profit Before Tax (PBT) of RM501 million in 1Q FY2022 KUALA LUMPUR, 31 May 2022 – FGV Holdings Berhad (FGV) posted a profit before tax (PBT) at RM501 million in its first quarter ended 31 March 2022, a significant improvement compared to RM15 million last year. This is mainly contributed by higher margin of palm products, downstream, fertilisers and logistic business.
Are they working to get the price down to below 1.30 so they can make another GO @ 1.30 or even @ 1.40 before the expiration of the generous continuous extension granted of 6 months on 3rd August. Absolutely unfair to take advantage of shareholders who did take up the offer before.
Ridiculous! Have they done anything. Should be performance link. That is what happen when FELDA has the controlling interest and has not corrected it since the GO. Straight abuse and manipulation of minority shareholders. Wake up BURSA. By the way, anybody from FGV gone to jail yet?
@moneyontheway, I have no idea man. But one thing for sure is definitely will be taken private. Already Felda said many times don't intend to maintain listing. When and at what price I don't know. I suspect it will be sooner rather than later. Another thing for sure is that dividend this year will be at least 10 sen from 8 sen last year. Major shareholder Felda wants more money to flow upwards ma since they hold more than 80%.
They have another month (until 3rd August) to manipulate the share price to a reasonable level to enable them to make another GO. Pretty sure it will crack below the 1.50 very soon. They will need to maintain the price for at least a week to work out the WAP to be used for the GO, which is probably 10-15% above that.
Does anybody know if Bursa can force sell the excess % of shareholding by Felda, like in a margin call force sell by a broker? If you do not have the power to exercise the rules then nothing will be done. Needs an ULTIMATUM.
