LongTermInvestor8 Will the market crash if budget 2021 cannot be passed this coming Thursday (26/10/2020)? These are the 4 possible scenarios:

1. Parliament will be dissolved and a snap election will be called
2. A state of Emergency in the whole country will be declared by YDPA
3. Muhyiddin will resign and YDPA will appoint an interim PM
4. YDPA will appoint a new PM who has majority MPs support. A new budget 2021 also will be tabled by the new appointed PM.

Will the market go down? Will it crash? Take profit now or wait?

a2333778 hlcap and hlfg are under hong leong company. Why hl cap price is much lower if compared to hlfg but i see the dividend of hl cap is higher. Does that mean hl cap is more worth to invest?

Keyman188 OMG...unbelievable...

scholez18 Banks are typically valued on it's net worth book value.
HLFG's historical 10 year average PB is at 1.1x.
Assuming a reversion to historical average PB..
HLFG is worth at least 21 /share to me.
Steady compounder for those who can see.
Only 3 banks in Malaysia consistently achieving ROE more than 10%.
HLFG is one of them.

Keyman188 Keyman188 always willing to learn from professional or experts...

The latest tutorial is the constructive lesson we need to examine...

如何强化持股能力?最大化买对股票后的赚幅?!(上集) - 陈剑

符合这个条件的股票才真正值得你长期持有!(如何强化持股能力?下讲) - 陈剑




What are the key points Keyman188 can learned from this tutorial :-

1) Using "bond investment cognition" to hold long term investment position

2) Using "dividend reinvestment plan" approach to increase long term shareholding

3) How to set the safety margin for long term investment position


Let using HLFG share as an example...

Keyman188 holding cost average about 12.40++...

Keyman188 had received dividend received for the past 12 months (based on ex-date from Apr'20 ~ Mar'21)

12/03/21 - RM 0.1085

05/11/20 - RM 0.25

Total dividend received = RM 0.3585

Dividend yield = 2.88% per share

Capital appreciation growth = +38% (based on 24/03/21 closing price of RM 17.24)

Capital appreciation of investment also part of the investment return...

Furthermore, since HLFG part of the recovery stock with strong fundamental & growing company....

Recent share price also gradually on the recovery road...


Is it the right time to start your million dollar dream ???...

Is it the right time to start your long term position instead of short term profit ???....

** The final decision is on your heart now

Keyman188 Foreign buying extends to third week, surges to RM964.3m

(theedgemarkets.com / August 30, 2021 09:42 am +08)

KUALA LUMPUR (Aug 30): Foreign buying of Malaysian equities extended for the third week and surged to RM964.33 million last week, from a paltry RM6.71 million the prior week.

In its weekly fund flow report today, the MIDF Research team said as the market reopened last Monday, foreign investors were net buyers amounting to RM6.7 million.

Meanwhile, it said local institutions bought RM19.16 million net of local equities, with retailers as net sellers to the tune of RM25.86 million.

The research house said foreign investors were net buyers every day of the week.

It said the largest foreign inflow was recorded last Thursday to the tune of RM310.79 million, while the inflow of RM6.7 million last Monday was the smallest.

“As for retailers, they were net sellers every day of the week except on Monday.

“The largest net selling by retailers was recorded last Tuesday and the smallest net selling was on Friday to the tune of RM48.43 million and RM16.88 million respectively.

“Cumulatively, for the week, retailers net sold RM113.96 million worth of equities on Bursa Malaysia,” it said.

MIDF said that meanwhile, local institutions recorded cumulative weekly net selling to the tune of RM850.37 million.

It said local institutions were net sellers every day of the week, with the largest net selling on Thursday to the tune of RM290.41 million.

Since the beginning of 2021, cumulatively, retailers were the only net buyers of the local equity market to the tune of RM9.46 billion.

Local institutions and foreign investors were net sellers to the tune of RM4.46 billion and RM5 billion respectively.

“In terms of participation, retail investors, local institutions and foreign investors recorded weekly movements of -3.82%, 9.89% and 16.82% respectively in average daily trade value (ADTV),” it said.

Keyman188 Investment Highlights

We maintain BUY call on Hong Leong Financial Group (HLFG) with unchanged fair value of RM20.60/share based on SOP valuation. We fine-tune our FY21/22 earnings by +0.5/-0.8% after tweaking our net interest and non-interest income (NOII) estimates.

HLFG reported a flattish net profit of RM573mil (-0.7% QoQ) in 4Q21. Higher net interest income (NII) was offset by a slowdown in non-interest income (NOII) coupled with higher provisions due additional pre-emptive provisions of RM157mil set aside by its key subsidiary, Hong Leong Bank (HLBB) in the quarter.

For 12M21, core earnings grew by 13.3% YoY to RM2.27bil with higher profit contribution from all divisions (commercial and share of results from Bank of Chengdu – associate company, investment banking and insurance).

Cumulative earnings were within our expectation, accounting for 104.6% of forecast. However, the results were slightly above consensus number making up 105.6% of street estimates.

Its key subsidiary, HLBB, reported a strong PBT of RM3.5bil (+16.1% YoY) for 12M21 contributed by higher total income and lower opex partially offset by increase in provisions due to pre-emptive allowances on loan losses of RM511mil booked in for the financial year.

HLBB’s loans grew strongly at 6.8% YoY with domestic loan growth outpacing the industry’s 3.4% YoY growth.

HLBB’s CI ratio for 12M21 improved to 38.0% with a positive JAW of 15.6% YoY.

The banking subsidiary’s asset quality remained sound with GIL ratio of 0.46% while loan loss cover including regulatory reserves was high at 304.0% significantly above the industry’s 112.0%. Credit cost of HLBB stood at 0.42% in 12M21.

HLA Holdings (HLAH) recorded a higher net profit after tax of RM394mil (+73.3% YoY) for 12M21.

The improved performance of the group’s insurance business was underpinned by higher insurance underwriting surplus (+RM38mil), fair value gains from equities (+RM78mil) and the release of contractual liabilities from higher interest rate partially offset by FV losses on bonds (+RM28mil)

For 12M21, HLA the key insurance subsidiary’s gross premiums and new business regular premiums (NBRP) expanded by 11.1%YoY and 29.7% YoY respectively.

HLA’s embedded value rose by 14.0% YoY to RM2.87bil in 12M21 focusing on growth of higher margin products (investment-linked). New business embedded value (NBEV) of HLA climbed 20.0% YoY to RM177mil in 12M21 from changes in product mix, new product launches and favourable impact from the steepening of long-term MGS rates. Non-par and investment-linked/ participating ratio for new businesses stood at 96:4. HLA maintained its ranking at No. 4 for investment-linked products while its market share in terms of NBRP for ordinary life products improved to the 7th position in FY21 from 9th in FY20.

HLA’s number of agents rose to 8,095. By delivery channel, gross premiums continued to be driven largely by agents followed by bancassurance. In FY21, agency and bancassurance’s NBRP grew by 27.0% YoY and 39.0% YoY respectively.

Its investment banking division under Hong Leong Capital (HLC) reported a higher PBT of RM177mil (+85.2% YoY) for 12M21 driven by higher contributions from investment banking and stockbroking business. Higher retail participation in the stock market benefitted its stockbroking business. Meanwhile, improved deals flows for equity and debt capital markets, coupled with higher treasury income lifted earnings contribution from investment banking. In contrast, its asset management business’s PBT declined YoY with lower average AUM of RM16.9mil as money market funds withdrew to invest in other higher yielding investments.

HLFG’s consolidated CET1 ratio, Tier 1 and total capital was 11.64%, 12.58% and 15.47% in 4Q21 respectively. The ratios stayed above the regulatory requirements of 7.0%, 8.5% and 10.5% respectively.

A final dividend of 29.2 sen/share has been proposed bringing the total FY21 dividends to 40 sen/share (payout: 20.0%). This was close to our estimate of 43.5 sen/share.

wallstreetrookie The issue of FBM index lies within the fact that the index consistently ostracizes the winners and embrace the losers. Hong Leong Financial Group is the few movers of the index with the least analyst upgrades/coverage and highest SD for earnings estimates.
This is really boring

wallstreetrookie Always buy companies with high FCF yield. Only companies with good cash flow can beat recessionary environment

bullmarket1628 Bank Negara raises OPR by 25 basis points to 2.5%
Thursday, 08 Sep 2022 3:23 PM MYT


KUALA LUMPUR: At the conclusion of its monetary policy committee (MPC) meeting, Bank Negara increased the overnight policy rate by 25 basis points (bps) to 2.5%, in line with market expectations.
In a statement, it said it raised the ceiling and floor rate of the corridor of the OPR to 2.75% and 2.25% respectively.

This is the central bank's third consecutive rate hike, bringing the total increase in the OPR to 75bps so far this year.
"At the current OPR level, the stance of monetary policy continues to remain accommodative and supportive of economic growth.

"The MPC is not on any pre-set course and will continue to assess evolving conditions and their implications on the overall outlook to domestic inflation and growth," said Bank Negara…..
