Prlexus: Earnings Recovered

Results Update

For QE31/7/2016, Prlexus's net profit rose 189% q-o-q or 39% y-o-y to RM10 million while revenue rose 72% q-o-q or 4% y-o-y to RM125 million. Revenue increased q-o-q mainly  due to higher revenue from the apparel division. This led to increase in profits.

Prlexus (at RM1.54 at 10.00am) gives a PE of 9 times (based on last 4 quarters' EPS of 17.28 sen). At this PER, Prlexus is deemed fairly attractive.

Technical Outlook

Prlexus has broken above its intermediate downtrend line, RR at RM1.45. Its next resistance is at RM1.60 & then RM1.70.

If share price tracks earning, we have reason to believe that Prlexus's share price should go higher rather than lower.

Based on imporved financial performance, fairly attractive valuation & mildly positive technical outlook, I revise my rating for Prlexus from TAKE PROFIT to ACCUMULATE.
