DLady: Top-line & bottom-line rebounded

Result Update

For QE30/6/2015, DLady's net profit increased by 186% q-o-q or 101% y-o-y to RM49 million while its revenue increased by 41% q-o-q or 4% y-o-y to RM278 million. PBT increased q-o-q due to improved revenue and lower raw material prices while the sequential increase in revenue was due to the new relaunch of Dutch Lady Children Formula Milk.

DLady (closed at RM45.80 yesterday) is now trading at a PE of 22 times (based on last 4 quarters' EPS of 200 sen). At this PER, DLady is deemed fairly attractive. Its DY is fairly decent at 4.8%.

Technical Outlook

Since October 2012, DLady has been moving sideways around RM40-48. Its indicators gave mixed reading, with monthly MACD hooked down. A breakout of the trading range of RM46-48 will point the way forward for the stock.

Based on improved financial performance and attractive valuation, I would revise DLady's rating from REDUCE to BUY.

In addition to the disclaimer in the preamble to my blog, I hereby confirm that I do not have any relevant interest in, or any interest in the acquisition or disposal of, DLady.
