wallstreetrookie Good company but currently overpriced due to supply chain disruption and asset/commodity inflation
08/03/2022 10:18 AM
wallstreetrookie 1 billion company
08/03/2022 11:57 AM
wallstreetrookie Don't sell
08/03/2022 12:01 PM
tonylim Bro how did you arrive at 1 billion company
11/03/2022 2:23 PM
wallstreetrookie Monopoly over the local pharmaceutical business. There is not a single company listed on Bursa that has their in-house manufacturing line and brands. Give me one company except Pharmaniaga that actually deals with production. None
15/03/2022 8:48 AM
wallstreetrookie Hold Kotra
15/03/2022 8:48 AM
wallstreetrookie I am always optimistic haha. I am rarely bearish on stocks, except when it is really bad

1. Kotra Industries 2. YSP 3. ??? (new ipo)
02/04/2022 9:54 PM
treasurehunt Thanks zzprozaz. Surged in profit margin is highly likely due to increasing in appeton products sales. Nova is another one enjoying high profit margin from its supplement products.
14/04/2022 11:37 AM
wallstreetrookie IR's job is to make presentation decks and help analysts prepare models. Their information can be found anywhere. Surge in profit margins has been priced in. The time to buy was Q3 2021
14/04/2022 11:40 AM
wallstreetrookie Yes, I still hold Kotra. But waiting to add my position after the next earnings
14/04/2022 2:37 PM
wallstreetrookie my cost is RM120k at RM3.2 lol
14/04/2022 2:39 PM
wallstreetrookie Do not sell Kotra yet. This is the only self-sustainable pharmaceutical company. Even better than Duopharma and Pharmaniaga crap
14/04/2022 2:39 PM
wallstreetrookie Kotra is already a RM1 billion company. Market hasn't realised it yet
14/04/2022 2:40 PM
treasurehunt Kotra has invested RM 179m in PPE from FY2010 to FY2021 and the accumulated depreciation is about RM 124m during this period. With the PPE depreciation in RM 14m per annum and nil massive Capex, the depreciation amount will be reduced RM 3m/year after 3 years.

wallstreetrookie Kotra Industries to report earnings by end of May: Investors' expectation much higher than last quarter
05/05/2022 10:58 PM
treasurehunt Kotra needs to prove to the market that its margin hike is sustainable for 4 continuous quarters . Therefore, the upcoming QR is crucial justify the margin leap.
06/05/2022 11:49 PM
zzprozaz Appeton sales in Jan to March should be good as higher covid cases in this period, recent 2 quarters result mainly support by higher local sales mainly contribute by Appeton in the covid period
09/05/2022 11:52 AM
treasurehunt Nova has posted a better QR. Kotra is expected to report similar as well. Tiny traded volume.
24/05/2022 7:48 PM
wallstreetrookie Shhh @treasurehunt don't promote
24/05/2022 7:48 PM
treasurehunt Not many interested in tiny traded company la. Difficult to make money in short term. Hidden hands are drawing the graph judging from the trades in the past few weeks.
24/05/2022 7:55 PM
treasurehunt Great QR and good for investing criteria rather than trading.
30/05/2022 2:52 PM
Musangkingfarmer CEO bought some shares at the price of RM4.25 on 03 Jun
08/06/2022 8:02 PM
treasurehunt Bought 2k share only. Kedekut man! He should snap up at least 20k shares.
08/06/2022 8:52 PM
treasurehunt Wait for the mid term traders to take profits before marching again. It may take months to complete the consolidation.
10/06/2022 8:00 PM
wallstreetrookie Like you said, mid term traders are not interested in Kotra because this stock won't move. Pharmaceuticals perform good in recessions. Kotra Industries is similar to JNJ but a microcap biotech/healthcare stock
17/06/2022 2:33 PM
zzprozaz Why Kotra export drop a lot even lesser impact by restrictions in 2022?
20/06/2022 11:33 AM
treasurehunt Guess local market is performed exceptionally well. Therefore, cater a room to grow overseas market in next quarter. Hahaha
22/06/2022 12:23 PM
zzprozaz treasurehunt, but Kotra capacity utilisation only 40% or 50%, still got many capacity to grow oversea market… I think it was not due to not enough capacity….
02/07/2022 9:42 AM
wallstreetrookie Kotra Industries, Apex Healthcare.
12/07/2022 10:13 PM
wallstreetrookie Healthcare perform well in recessionary environment
19/07/2022 10:47 AM
wallstreetrookie Local institutional funds are overweight on healthcare. This company remains in my portfolio. Not selling
23/08/2022 10:43 AM
Michael Kwok Sell call kotra rm4.23-4.26
Tp below rm 3.
26/8/2022 11.40pm.
26/08/2022 11:41 PM
Musangkingfarmer Delayed export sales because import permits were issued late by the relevant countries, so next quarter will have more sales from export.
29/08/2022 11:04 PM
wallstreetrookie Good news coming soon
