Astro: Looking Even More Attractive

Astro has been dropping over the past 4 months, from a high of RM2.90 to a low of RM2.14 now. If you look at the chart below, we can see that Astro share prices have been moving in a steep downward channel, ABCD which flattened out slightly into WXYZ. Occasionally it would go below the lower line before rebounding back into the downward channel (see C"D" and Y"Z"). Assuming this pattern persists, Astro may test the second lower, Y"Z" possibly at RM2.10 before recovery.

Astro (currently at RM2.16) is now trading at a trailing PER of 15.3 times (based on last 4 quarters' EPS of 14.1 sen) and has a dividend yield of 5.8% (based last 4 quarters' dividend totaling 12.5 sen). At these ratios, Astro is deemed fairly attractive.
