Hi to all fellow investors and traders !
Today I would like to highlight a stock which I think might be posting a superb/consistent quarter result in May 2019. That stock is PCCS GROUP BERHAD or PCCS (Code 6068, Main Board, Consumer Products/Services).
PCCS (BSKL Code 6068)
Personal TP Short To Mid Term : 57c, Long Term : 81c
Here are my thoughts :
1. Study of Latest 4 Quarter Results - Important Findings !!!
Please bear with me while I explain my findings on the latest 4 Quarter Results analysis:
i. Undervalued Counter - Currently Trading at PE Ratio of 5.2 of Forward PE
Refer below screenshot for PCCS QR summary. Latest 3 quarter results shows total EPS of 6.56 cents. NTA of company remains at 63.3 cents as of recent quarter.
Last year May 2018 report, PCCS has recorded a small net profit of RM 47,000 on the back of revenue of RM 121 million. This was mainly due to the high administrative & selling/marketing expenses incurred.
If we take a conservative 2 cents EPS for May 2019 target, the full year EPS will be at 8.56 cents. This means at current price of 44.5 cents, the company is merely trading at 5.2 ratio of forward PE !!!
Taking a reasonable 9-10 PE Ratio as TP, the stock should be worth around 77 - 86 cents in the longer term !!
ii. Reduction of Expenses - Company Commitment to Improve Bottom Line
Refer below the latest 4 quarters income statements. I had circled the issue which I wish to highlight here, which is the Administrative & Selling/Marketing Expenses.
We can see, that the Company has SIGNIFICANTLY reduced its administrative & selling/marketing expenses in the latest 2 quarters (from 23.4 m, to 19.6 m, to 13.2 m and 13.9 m). Cost savings of roughly RM 6-10 million (30-50%) to improve company bottom line. I foresee that this improvement shall carry on to the latest QR of May 2019, indicating the company's commitment and consistency in reducing costs to improve profit for its shareholders.
iii. Disposal of Asset Worth RM 8.5 million, Yet to Be Captured as Profit ???
Refer again the latest 4 quarters Cash Flow Statement as below. I will circle the part which I wish to highlight.
If you notice, there was no disposal of RM 8.5 million captured in the May 2018 QR. However, this item started to appear in Aug 2018, Nov 2018 and again in Feb 2019 report. I believe this disposal was still in progress and therefore has not yet been reflected as a gain in the income statement.
There is a high possibility that this RM 8.5 million disposal might appear as a realized gain, whether in May 2019 or August 2019 QR, as usually assets take about 6-9 months for disposal and realization of gains. Should this gain appear in May 2019, this would positively boost up the EPS of this counter and reflect a higher target price.

2. Technical Analysis - Consolidation in Bullish Flag Formation About to End
Refer below daily chart of PCCS. Price had peaked to 56.5 cents on 9 April 2019 and had since then been in retracement along the bullish flag pattern.
As we can see, the 42-43 cents area had become an RTS (Resistance Turned Support) Area, which buyers had been supporting lately. There had been 5 times where this counter had stepped into this RTS band, and price has rebounded from the lows.
MACD is consolidating towards a crossing soon, whilst stochastics indicated that the counter is oversold and starting to buck the trend.
I foresee, that a breakout of this flag pattern shall allow this counter to trend back towards its recent high of 57 cents, then move towards its long term target of 81 cents.
Based on my opinion, PCCS should be reporting a good/consistent May 2019 QR which will support its uptrend continuation, based on below:
i. Total anticipated EPS full year at 8.56 cents. Taking 9-10 PE Ratio, the stock should be worth around 77 - 86 cents.
ii. SIGNIFICANT reduction of RM 6-10 million (30-50%) in its administrative & selling/marketing expenses in the latest 2 quarters, indicating company commitment to improve bottom line.
iii. Asset Disposal of RM 8.5 million, pending to be captured in the income statement
iv. Ending Its Bullish Flag Consolidation - Potential Uptrend To Recent High of 57 cents, and long term TP of 81 cents
