Alex, can you post an another better stock, mudajaya ?!

HI Unknown

Mudajaya (at RM2.57) has its appeal. It is fairly attractive as it is trading at a PE of 4.9 times (based on last 4 quarters' EPS of 52 sen). It is also involved in the construction of power plant- a sector that will enjoy some activities in the next few years, both in Malaysia or in India (where it has a presence).

However, the stock- once a darling among fund managers- is still struggling get into the good books of fund managers. It is still in an intermediate downtrend line, with resistance at RM2.80. Until a breakout happens, the stock will underperform. Meanwhile, its next support is at the horizontal line at RM2.40.

Hello Alex, why Mudajaya still struggling to get into books of fund managers? Is it because of the issue in India, isn't it? But it looks like CIL will finalize the coal deal with them soon.

Hi Alex,

I must say you have some unique and interesting insights and it is very helpful. I've been gradually accumulating PAVREIT of late. What do you think is the fair value of this stock? Thank you!

Hi Ray Khor

The chart of PAVREIT looks very nice. It is in an uptrend line, with support at RM1.23-1.27. If this support holds, you can add to your position.
