Hi to all fellow investors and traders !
Today I would like to share my thoughts the following counter:
SYMPHONY LIFE BERHAD or SYMLIFE (Code 1538, MAIN Market, Property)
Some basic info on this company:
i. Number of shares float : 600.57 million
ii. Market Cap : RM 231.22 million
iii. Last closing price : 38.5 cents
SYMLIFE - INSANE ! THIS STOCK IS ONLY TRADING AT PE
RATIO 2X & 77% DISCOUNT TO NTA !
1. Couldn't find any analyst report on SYMLIFE for the past 1-2 years
Been trying to see if any IB had written any coverage on this stock, however to my dissapointment, I can't find any.
I guess this can be one of the many reasons the price had been depressed for so long, despite the good financials and business.
Any of my IB analysts or reporter friends out there, hope you get this call and do some justice to this company, so that existing shareholders and potential investors are able to see the data & prospect of this company in order to make a better informed decision on their investments.
2. Too undervalued, trading at PE 2X Ratio
Refer below latest QR summary of SYMLIFE for the past 3 years.
For FY 2019, we see that total earnings were roughly 21c per shares. This means that latest share price of 38.5c indicates PE Ratio of only around 1.5-2X. This is very absurd considering how good the company earnings in FY2019 and also in FY2020 up to date.
As of latest FY2020 3 quarters, the company already earned 15.4c per shares. If this profit is consistent for another quarter, we should be looking at EPS around 21-23c for the FY2020 closing.
3. Trading at 77% discount to its NTA of RM 1.65
Refer below on the latest assets versus liabilities for SYMLIFE.
Note the total assets of about RM 1.53 billion (NTA RM 1.65) versus liabilities of RM 641.9 million.
This makes the company a net asset surplus of RM 888.1 million.
I am surprised at how the share price of this company can be so low all these while.
4. Notable funds and individuals at top 30 shareholders (as of latest list available in Annual Report)
Refer below list of shareholdings in SYMLIFE as of latest FY2019 annual report.
Besides the majority shareholder / owner which is Tan Sri Mohamed Azman Bin Yahya, we see a few other notable names:
i. RHB Trustees Berhad
ii. Urusharta Jamaah Sdn Bhd (investment arm of Tabung Haji)
iii. Malpac Capital Sdn Bhd
iv. Sun Hung Kai Investment Services Limited
v. TS Abdul Wahid Omar (ex minister, ex CEO Maybank, ex Chairman PNB, and currently non-executive Chairman of BURSA)
5. Exciting prospects ahead in FY2020
Refer below prospects of SYMLIFE for FY2020 as mentioned by the company. Let me summarize for your ease of reading:
i. Star Residences, a RM 3 Bil GDV in KLCC received very good response, with sales 99% for RT1 and 87% for RT2, SR at 97%. Also new launch is RT3 receiving good response from foreign buyers.
