CSCSTEL: Earning improved further

Recent Financial results

CSCStel's net profit increased by 93% q-o-q to RM10 million. Revenue dropped 12% q-o-q to RM258 million due to significant decreases in both sales volume and selling prices of all steel products. NP increased q-o-q due to significantly lower production cost as a result of the lower hot rolled steel prices.

CSCStel (closed at RM1.00 last Friday) has a PE multiple of 37 times (based the last 4 quarters' EPS of 2.7 sen). The company is only beginning to return to profitability after a losing streak of 4 quarters. If it can sustain its last 2 quarters' earning, then its full-year earning could be 8.6 sen. This would reduce its PER to 12 times.

Technical Outlook

CSCStel in an intermediate downward channel which stretches back to 2010. The share price is however support by long-term uptrend line, SS at RM0.95-1.00.

Based on the improved financial performance & mildly positive technical outlook, CSCStel could be a good stock for long-term investment.
