Mudajya- bottom-line declined

Result Update

For QE30/9/2012, Mudajya's net profit dropped 9% q-o-q or 12% y-o-y to RM55 million while revenue dropped 37% q-o-q but rose 5% y-o-y to RM353 million. Net profit dropped q-o-q due to lower revenue from construction segment which was the result of higher delivery of equipment components for the Indian power plant project in the preceding quarter.

Mudajya (closed at RM2.58 yesterday) is now trading at a PE of 5.3 times (based on last 4 quarters' EPS of 48.76 sen). At this multiple, Mudajya is deemed fairly attractive.

Technical Outlook

Mudajya is struggling to stay at its long-term uptrend line support at RM2.70 . For the past few weeks, it has been trading around RM2.60, which is below the long-term uptrend line. Can it recover above the uptrend line?

Wth the weaker financial performance & the uncertain technical outlook, I would revise Mudajya's rating to a HOLD.

In addition to the disclaimer in the preamble to my blog, I hereby confirm that I do not have any relevant interest in, or any interest in the acquisition or disposal of, Mudajya.
