GENM: Poised for Next Upleg?

Technical Outlook

GENM has broken above its downtrend line, RR at RM5.10 in late November. This was followed by a sideways movement with the upside capped by the horizontal line at RM5.30. Yesterday GENM went above the RM5.30 to reach an intra-day high of RM5.33 before it closed at RM5.29. Today it is again trading above RM5.30. Current prices are RM5.34-5.35.

From the weekly chart below, we can see that GENM is in along-term uptrend line, RR with support at RM4.30-4.40. While still below the zero line, the MACD has hooked up and crossed above the MACD signal line. +DMI has also crossed above -DMI. These two signs point to a possible bottom for GENM.

Recent Financial Result

GENM's profits in the past 3 quarters have normalized after the exceptional profits from forex gains and disposal of investment & properties for the period from QE30/6/2016 to QE31/12/2016.

GENM (closed at RM5.29 yesterday) is now trading at a PER of 38 times (based on annualized EPS of 14 sen). At this PER, GENM is deemed fully valued.

For those who are keen to following the progress of the construction work on the 20th Century Fox theme park, you can go here.


Based on poorer financial performance and demanding valuation, I rate GENM as a HOLD after the recent correction. The stock could be a trading BUY given the bullish technical outlook. If you choose to trade the stock, please exercise careful discretion.
