[Notwithstanding the improved performance, the overall market conditions in China remained weak in 3Q2016 as reflected in the stagnant GDP growth of 6.7% and declining imports and exports. The Group expects these conditions to persist for the rest of 2016.]
It interesting mgt. feels the GDP 6.7% is stagnant. LOL that number would be impressive in most developed nation economies.
In any case, it seems the business environment over there is not that good at the moment and will probably not be improving as exports decline so there is quite some macro risk with the sector memtech is operating in.
I thought Memtech price all the while below NAV? When did it hit NAV & above?
Current NAV is abt USD 77 cts if not wrong? Thanks.
sorry type wrongly, this one i remember bought at around 10c level, it was stuck there for a long time with few hundred lots blocking at 10c whilst i suspect someone was collecting. then it suddenly chiong to 14c+ so I decided to take profit.
Most of my stock usually I wait till NAV to sell but this was one of the exception so confused myself, sometimes type too fast.
yup NAV now is USD 77c and should hit 80c next quarter. I didn;t follow much after selling but seems like they got the contract to make those expensive Dr. Dre BEATs headphones from apple and according to some analyst report last year some production halt or something and resumed recently so profit gone back up. They are also making some plastic parts for Tesla i think. So this year could be very busy ramping up production.
Current valuation looks okish, net cash after the sale will be up to 40% net cash to Mcap. Only issue is i think previously they announced div payout is 30% and EPS so far this year is still not much due to previous negative quarter so they might only do 2c, FY EPS 2016 probably only around 5-6c. The profit from the sale is also going back to cash pile and "working capital" purposes as co. has announced and will not be reflected in this quarterly anyways.
At 63c thats not a very attractive div for me, and we wont know if they would suddenly have another negative quarter or dip in earnings again this year.
