Superdaddy

At last, 5ct dividend coming ex 01/04. Cheers

2022-03-18 17:54

prudentinvestor

The company calls it interim dividend instead of final dividend which is normally paid in July. I doubt the directors will declare another dividend payable in July.

Keck Seng has 8k acres in JB where book value is only 80m or 10k per acre! Boustead just sold 600 acres in JB to YTL for 250k per acre!!

KS super under valued!! Some more 1bn cash!

2022-04-20 22:27

prudentinvestor

Keck Seng has benefited a lot from the sharp fall of the Ringgit against the US and Singapore Dollars. The most appropriate thing to do now is to reduce its holdings of US and Sing Dollars and embark on a buying spree of its own shares.

2022-04-22 15:50

How kseng benefited from stronger usd? Pls elaborate. Thx

Its foreign currency holdings include at least 100 million US Dollars (worth over RM 430 million today) and over 70 million Sing Dollars (worth over RM220 million today)

Net cash rm800mil, total shares 361mil. At rm3.93, cash is 56% of the share price!
Very easy for major shareholders to take private, considering NTA 6.25

2022-04-29 16:48

prudentinvestor

The RM6.25 a share NTA is arrived based on ridiculous asset valuations. Many of its assets have not been revalued for up to 40 years.

Keck seng needs a big time operator to goreng up the stock, I have noticed the stock price is controlled. the liquidity is artificial and the management is unfriendly.

Shareholders need to band together and form a voting block of 10% of the company shares and requisition for an EGM under S144 of the companies act following the procedures guided by S144(2) of the companies act

2022-05-24 14:41

valueinvestor96

Minority shareholders should table a resolution to payout 50sen a share in special dividends as the company is holding excess cash on their balance sheets which is not necessary for the operation of their business

2022-05-24 14:42

prudentinvestor

These bunch of directors won't do anything proactive. After divesting Keck Seng's stake in Parkway Holdings about a decade ago, instead of buying some properties in Singapore or bought some Singapore bank shares which by now could have doubled or tripled in value, they increased Keck Seng's cash holdings in US and Singapore dollars. I have kept some Keck Seng shares for 25 years, it looks like I have to keep them for another 25 years.

2022-06-05 15:07

valueinvestor96

oh didnt know keck seng owned shares in Parkway. They have loads of land to sell in Tanjong Puteri and a cash cow in Taman Daya

2022-06-08 13:52

valueinvestor96

Fair Value of Keck Seng is easily 11RM/ share after marking to market their land and hotel investments. Keck Seng is also in a net net cash position with 500RM MILLION EXCESS CASH

KSENG becoming more attractive... Waiting for it to come down further, then buy and keep... ;)

2022-06-13 19:17

prudentinvestor

The Ringgit has dropped sharply against the US and Sing Dollars over the last couple of months. Malaysia's misery is Keck Seng's boon.

@valueinvestor
KSeng has nett cash of 500 million?
Vow!
KSeng will be a winner of interest rate hike!
Hooray!!
Hidden Gem...

Ringgit devaluation
Inflation

KSeng has valuable developmental land in Tanjung Puteri?@valueinvestor
Another plus factor!

KSeng will be winner of ringgit devaluation, high inflation and interest rate hike!!!
Go..go for KSeng

Buy n accumulate when it's low!!!

Unless the company change its dividend policy , it is a cash trap .

2022-07-03 12:56

prudentinvestor

Keck Seng has net cash of over RM800 million after deducting RM210 million short and long term loans, mainly kept in US and Sing dollars. It has sizable investments in the stock market, worth over RM400 million. The most valuable asset is its land, about 9,000 acres of plantation, golf course and housing lands almost entirely located in Johor Bahru.

kseng good company but too stingy in dividends (dividend payout only 17%) thats why share price low
if kseng can increase it to say 33%, it will fly!

this company is better dead than alive, due to it super high amount of cash almost rm800mil

2 months ago

prudentinvestor

The company directors haven't acted proactively all this while. They just hoard cash, mainly in Sing and US Dollars and seldom sell the company's share investments. In 2007, Keck Seng's share investments were worth RM720 million. It plunged to just RM360 million the following year as a result of the world financial crisis.

Keck Seng group is worth RM5-6 billion or over RM13 a share. The directors may just offer minority shareholders RM5 to RM6 a share to take the company private.

Huge spike in earnings for the April to June quarter due to record palm oil price and weak Ringgit. Hopefully this can translate into a record interim dividend.

normally got interim dividend every October
this year takde? company profit already recovered post pandemic, no reason for takde dividend

Knowing the attitude and the mentality of its directors, investors will likely be paid an interim dividend of 4 sen again this year.

2 weeks ago

prudentinvestor

Keck Seng failed to pay any dividend in 2020 and 2021. This year it paid 5 sen a share dividends in April and July. The company normally pays an interim dividend of around 4 sen a share in November of the year. Looks very likely that it is not paying this year.

Keck Seng directors should consider slowly reducing its US and Sing Dollars holdings and accumulate assets that give better returns.
