Fabien _the efficient capital allocator I would suggest management to stop wasting cash to buy back shares

better distribute cash dividends to shareholders instead as there are better options to deploy capital than increased their pie in the company

stockraider Is ok mah!
They buy back share & later distribute to us a dividend loh!

balvin71 I guess with lumber prices keep dropping to new 52 weeks low and ringgit strengthening, it is effecting the price of FLB. Based on my analysis, even at current lumber prices, profitability should be good. Additionally ocean freight charges have dropped significantly compared to year ago., this will help to reduce buyers cost. I am still holding, have been a long term investor and still want to enjoy cash and share dividends for the long term. New buyers might want to study first before getting into FLB.

15/02/2023 10:04 AM
nemesis USD will continue to strengthen to 4.60 which should lift FLBHD's net profit higher for coming quarters...A strong USD versus Ringgit is good news for FLBHD
18/02/2023 10:51 AM
nemesis We should expect Focus Lumber to maintain its earning momentum comparable to 2022 if USD continues to remain strong as FLBHD derives its major revenue and earnings in USD...Dividend yield is targeted to be 7%...Reiterate BUY!
18/02/2023 11:00 AM
nemesis At 0.610 it is trading at a huge discount to its forward strong earning growth and Dividend yield...EPS is expected to remain above 20 sen per share if Ringgit continues to slide against USD though lumber price is declining.

20/02/2023 8:39 PM
nemesis Declared 2 sen dividend though making quarterly losses..perhaps the only company in Bursa that will continue to give you dividend even when company is making losses...bcos it is cash rich with zero gearing as it is sitting on more than 120 mil in cash that can generate passive income even when its plywood business isn't doing well ...the company itself is investor utilising its massive cashpile to generate income for shareholders...We can expect Focus Lumber to continue paying good dividend though demand for plywood related products are softening...maintain BUY!
20/02/2023 8:41 PM
nemesis As you can see from its past record when it was making losses for 2 consecutive years, FLBHD stil paid dividend from 3-5 sen dividend even when it was making huge losses... This has shown that management really takes care of shareholders n really aspired to create values for Shoulders...this is a fundamental company that we should acquire and buy on weakness...assuming we get another 2 sen dividend by year end,this would translate to 6-7% dividend yield even when plywood demand is softening in the short term...Plywood mkt wil definitely pick up again soon...
20/02/2023 8:51 PM
firehawk even reported a loss making Q
20/02/2023 11:19 PM
Superb99 Really funny, price dropped more than dividend payout but still praising it...lol...revenue only 8mil, having issue to sell its products to US....HOPELESS counter, company with poor revenue, how to generate profit moving forward? Solely rely on cash pile, tunggu mati lo
21/02/2023 1:03 AM
nemesis No worries it is just short term slowdown...US plywood demand will rebound...

balvin71 Looks like we have to contend with low lumber prices at least till the middle of the year. Stock price will be depressed. I have been holding this stock for years. Will continue to do so.
26/02/2023 6:14 PM
nemesis There is no need to worry...This company has zero borrowing and share buyback exercise to create values for Shoulders ...just buy on weakness and wait for recovery

balvin71 Time to collect a bit more, keep and wait for market to turn around.

Qtr 1 results will not be as good as last year Qtr 1. I think have to wait for 2H 2023 to see if things turn around.
