sheldon So the steep fall in commodity prices is affecting the share price. Despite that the management would have hopefully locked-in future prices at much higher levels. The results for at least 2 quarters should be nothing less than awesome.

What the management could do to get the attention of the investors and prop up the share price is to declare an equally awesome dividend.
10/05/2022 11:21 AM
sheldon Interim dividend announcement anytime
18/05/2022 9:31 PM
lionel messi Or a bonus issue. I don't mind a big rights issue also. Love giving money to well managed companies.

WilburR2 What is your logic or basis dick? When the BK is buying RM 27+. Maybe RM 6.67 will be after fat bonus [ 5x ] dividens and shares, then sure

sheldon Things are looking good. CPO Futures prices are through the roof today 24 May. Results are in line with expectation. If you consider the latest EPS of 80.3 & extrapolate to a year = 3.21. This is the highest annual (projected) EPS BK had ever registered. Perhaps they could've declared a much higher dividend than 20 sen.
24/05/2022 9:57 PM
WilburR2 Should follow up with another announcement of a special dividend
25/05/2022 9:16 AM
WilburR2 Market disappointed with 20 sens dividend.Share price dropped 36 sens at mid day close.
25/05/2022 12:42 PM
sheldon Despite the tiny dividend, the Co in all fairness has made up with this massive 100k share buyback.
25/05/2022 9:19 PM
lionel messi That was not a share buyback. More like a pre arranged DBT done at only one price.
26/05/2022 9:47 AM
Golf123 Just buy, keep and sleep well at night.
27/05/2022 2:46 AM
sheldon What's DBT?

lionel messi
That was not a share buyback. More like a pre arranged DBT done at only one price.
27/05/2022 9:46 AM
lionel messi Direct business transaction. Pre arranged trade between buyer and seller usually done off mkt via DBT. aka block trade. But for thinly traded counter like this where the spread is wide, can also be done on mkt.
27/05/2022 11:36 AM

NatsukoMishima Leave all the commodities stocks now , great recession coming , Russia-ukraine war is going to end soon , all commodities stocks will plummet 50 % more !
06/07/2022 1:07 PM
NatsukoMishima If ASP drop below rm 3000 then no factory want to process the palm oil !

I said before n saying again...

FYI I've combed through the accounts & I did not come across any FX borrowings

TreeTopView @sheldon, I don't want to get into this discussion too much as I don't hold the stock, however I'm bored this afternoon and saw your comment about BK not having any exposure to foreign debt.

I have to correct your statement, BK does have foreign loans , such as USD, GBP, AUD, JPY, EURO. and RMB.

Noted I stand corrected tq. However note 35 of the Ann Rpt only mentioned rather vaguely sketchily ... "The aggregate outstanding nominal value of the Ringgit Sukuk and Non-Ringgit Sukuk issued under the 2nd Programme shall not exceed RM1.6 billion (or its equivalent in foreign currencies)."

sheldon Come on - get on the bus!
22/09/2022 10:04 AM
lionel messi Sheldon sounds so much like me TreeTop. Somehow we love this bus.
22/09/2022 3:51 PM
TreeTopView There is nothing wrong with this bus, LM, as long most of the passengers didn't buy overpriced tickets from dubious tourist operators.
I doubt if we'll see it speeding along the highway anytime soon , however passengers can check out the scenic views as they are driving around the principality of Liechtenstein to unload luggage once or twice a year.

22/09/2022 4:32 PM
sheldon Urgh! Should've taken the next bus
26/09/2022 10:46 AM
NatsukoMishima Glove 2.0 ! Later all farmer will sell at net loss cost when ASP drop to below rm 2500 per tonne at year end !
26/09/2022 1:52 PM
NatsukoMishima Glove 2.0 coming , run right now , cut loss to protect capital , dont repeat the same mistake by glove tards , u will be trap by many years !

28/09/2022 4:03 PM
NatsukoMishima Many sin ga like to do calculation , at the end share price plummet also like glove stocks !
28/09/2022 10:38 PM
WilburR2 Co last buy back was about rm27
04/10/2022 2:47 PM
lionel messi Why no share buy back now? So cheap.
06/10/2022 9:37 AM
sheldon Come December - dividend announcement - the bigger of the 2 yearly dividend announcements - get ready to fill up your bank account

lionel messi Started back their share buy back. About time. Fantastic price.
05/12/2022 8:53 AM
sheldon I like it very much when management buys back shares - less dividends to pay, better ROE and EPS.
05/12/2022 10:53 PM
sheldon Dividend announcement imminent - either today or tomorrow.
Hopefully generous. Need to fatten my pocket money.
07/12/2022 10:47 AM
sheldon I'm rich! I'm rich!
09/12/2022 8:43 PM
PassionateInvestor Pleasantly surprised that dividend still managed to match last year's
10/12/2022 9:44 AM
WilburR2 Nice div total for year 1.10
12/12/2022 10:01 AM
sheldon In the past, the final dividend hovered around 40-45 sen.

They've rightfully raised dividends in line with inflation and I belief wised up to the idea that this Co has the capacity to pay handsome dividends to compensate for the shortfall in market price due to lack of trading liquidity. Co being cash rich is good for shareholders but better if the shareholders themselves are cash rich. No strain on the cash flow or reserves to BK in appeasing shareholders but massive goodwill is generated. I hope other cash & reserve-rich companies like Petron can draw lessons from BK.
12/12/2022 10:38 AM
lionel messi Share buy back last year was 1.07 mil shares at avg price of RM24.31 as disclosed by its chairman in their latest annual report. Great transparency BK.
04/01/2023 8:28 AM
rahulsk1947 will BKAWAN crash post dividend payout date?
15/02/2023 3:36 PM
Wealthy99 will be back to 15 to test the support if broke below 19
21/02/2023 9:14 PM
sheldon Barring unforseen circumstances - If it drops to 15, I'd sell every other asset including the kitchen sink and park all my money here, sit back and wait
26/02/2023 10:50 PM
moven00 15 is really a tempting price to enter. I won’t throw everything in but definitely will start buying some too. Keep it for good dividend.
