Sign: Top-line & bottom-line plummeted

Results Update

For QE30/6/2015, Sign's net profit dropped 71% q-o-q or 62% y-o-y to RM3.8 million while revenue dropped by 37% q-o-q or 18% y-o-y to RM55 million. Revenue & PBT dropped q-o-q as a result of lesser in project revenue being recognized from both Kitchen & Wardrobe and Glass & Aluminium segments.

Chart 1: Sign's last 30 quarterly results


Sign (closed at RM2.36 yesterday) is now trading at a trailing PE of 7.8 times (based on last 4 quarters' EPS of 30.2 sen). However, if the earnings continue to remain weak- like QE30/6/2015- then its full-year EPS would drop to 12.8 sen. This will push its PER to 18 times. Thus, Sign's valuation could be considered as expensive.

(Note: Sogn is trading at RM2.00 as at 9:15am)

Technical Outlook

Sign is trading at its uptrend line at RM2.00. A drop below this level could signal a bearish reversal in the stock.

Based on poorer financial performance and potentially demanding valuation, Sign's rating is revised from a BUY to a HOLD. Further decline in its share price below the uptrend line could tip the rating to a SELL.

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, Sign.
