Harbour (closed at RM0.80 in the morning session) is now trading at a PE of 5.5 times (based on last 4 quarters' EPS of 14.36 sen). At this PER, Harbour is deemed attractively valued. 

Technical Outlook

Harbour is in a long-term "uptrend line" with support at RM0.55.

Despite the weak financial performance, I am keeping my rating for Harbour as a BUY based on attractive valuation and mildly positive technical outlook.
