[ WTK Holdings ] – Timber Rally Soon ??? – J4 Investment Capital .
WTK Holdings Berhad is a diversified group with operations in the timber, plantation, oil & gas and adhesive tape sectors. The core activity of the Group is in timber harvesting and the manufacture of plywood products. Prior to that, the Group was involved in the manufacturing of adhesive tapes and flexible packaging products. In mid-2000, the Group embarked onto forest and oil palm plantations. Seeing the growth potential and increasing contribution of the oil palm business to the Group’s earnings, the Group commenced the construction of a palm oil mill in Limbang Division, Sarawak, in 2016. The completion and commissioning of the palm oil mill during 2H2017 has since added a new stream of revenue to the Group from the sales of crude palm oil (“CPO”) and palm kernel (“PK”) In late 2014, the Group diversified into the oil & gas industry, particularly in the provision of Accommodation Workboats (“AWBs”) to support offshore oil & gas activities. However, the downturn of the industry in 2015 affected all facets of the industry, including the Group’s division which struggled with the challenges since 2016. This severely affected the performance and cash flow of the Group’s oil & gas division due to the prolonged off-hire of its vessels. Subsequently, on 22 February 2018 the High Court of Malaya in Kuala Lumpur ordered the subsidiary be wound-up and appointed a liquidator for the subsidiary.

- Palm Oil price which has been their lowest price since these few years .
- Net Cash Company .
- High NTA and CASH .
- 20-30% of dividend policy .
- Lower logs export quota imposed by the Sarawak State Government . This has made the group to limit their export sales and increase the selling price of logs .

The group has recorded a very strong fundamental result based on their past performance. With a great cash flow , high cash storage , and being a net cash company , it would definitely make this company a stock to watch. Another point is that being a diversified company , they managed to run their business in a safer way and having a more stable growth. The main business which is the timber division is currently having their upside period as the selling price of both logs and plywood are rising and in their high demand state . The one point which has to notice is the price for palm oil . This might affect the whole plantation division if the price has no ending of falling .
Technical Analysis :
From the chart above , the downtrend line has been violated with high volume ( the prerequisite of trend reversal : volume + trendline violating) , it shows a absolute trend reversal from technical terms . After a setup of trend reversal with explosive volume , a cup-with-handle formation is then formed , using a one-to-one measurement technique , a target price of 0.88 is given after violating the cup resistance @0.6 . Now, a continuation uptrend is impending , therefore a strong buy is being awared in these coming days . Sums up from the chart pattern analysis above , a TP1 of 0.88 is formed ( 47 percent gain). A TP2 of 1.17 is the ultimate target in terms of technical analysis .
Intrinsic Value Analysis :
Using the cash valuation method , with a very conservative growth estimation of 5 percent , a projected intrinsic value is RM4.96 . It is way too cheap compared to the recent price of RM0.60 , there is an up to 90 percent discount in terms of this valuation modal .
Using case study 2 , we estimate there is a downturn of company performance of -5 percent per subsequent year , the intrinsic value is located at RM 3.33 , it is still a cheap piece of stock .
Therefore , in terms of either intrinsic value or technical analysis , this stock will be the top of my watchlist .
Safe Entry Point : RM 0.6
CL point : RM 0.55
TP : RM 0.88/1.17/RM3.3
