Hi Alex,

What do you think about advanced Packaging ?

Hi networking

Advanced Packaging has a EPS of 13 sen. At RM1.69, it is trading at a PE of 13 times. Its PB is about 1 time. All in all, it is fully-valued, except for its HIGH dividend of 8.3% (or 14 sen last year). Its cash in hand is also pretty high at RM12 million as at 31/3/2013 (or, 60 sen per share).

However, there is no growth in this company and it is a small-cap with only 20 million shares issued. The share price is rising in this environment where everyone is chasing yield.
