Tomypak: Profit keeps sliding away

Results Update

For QE30/6/2014, Tomypak's NP dropped 46% q-o-q or 77% y-o-y to RM0.8 million while revenue eased back by 8% q-o-q or 11% yo-y to RM51.3 million.

For 1HFY14, Tomypak recorded a lower PBT of RM3.7 million against the PBT of RM9.7 million in the previous corresponding period, mainly due to lower sales in local market coupled with a decline in profit margin due to competition in the export market and also increased cost of production arising from higher energy and labour cost.

Tomypak (closed at RM1.30 yesterday) is now trading at a demanding PE of 15 times (based on last 4 quarters' EPS of 8.76 sen). Its dividend yield is quite attractive at 5.4%.

Technical Outlook

Tomypak has been trapped within a triangle for the past 1 year. At the time of writing this post, Tomypak was trading at RM1.23. This means that the stock has broken to the downside of the triangle- a bearish development.

Based on poor financial performance, full valuation & bearish technical outlook, Tomypak is now rated a SELL.

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, Tomypak.
