EATECH (closed at RM1.14 last Friday) is now trading at a PER of 2.2 times (based on last 4 quarters' EPS of 51 sen).  At this PER, EATECH is deemed very attractive.    

Technical Outlook

EATECH is in an uptrend line, SS. This uptrend picked up in April but the accelerated uptrend (S1-S1) could not sustain. The uptrend downshifted to S1-S2 where it remained until early August. The current selldown caused the share price to break below the uptrend line, S1-S2. With the good set of result, we may see the share price recovers back to the uptrend line, S1-S2.
