Hi to all fellow investors and traders !
Today I would like to share my thoughts the following counter:
JERASIA CAPITAL BERHAD or JERASIA (Code 8931, MAIN Market, Consumer Products & Services)
Some basic info on this company:
i. Number of shares float : 82.05 million
ii. Market Cap : RM 27.49 million
iii. Last closing price : 33.5 cents
iv. Website : http://corporate.jerasia.com.my/about.php
JERASIA - A STOCK TRADING AT 68% DISCOUNT TO ITS NTA, WITH PROMISING FUTURE !!!
1. Positive Growth Outlook in Apparel Sector As Economy Recovers & Consumer Buying Power Improves
JERASIA is a company involved in manufacturing and retail of apparels.
Few brands under them include MANGO, TERRANOVA, CALLIOPE and TRIO (refer screenshot below from website).
Therefore, as COVID19 cases decrease and the economy recovers, consumer buying power will improve greatly. Thus, apparel sector will be one of the main beneficiary of this economic recovery.
2. Small Float Shares - Only 82 Mil Shares Total
Refer screenshot taken from latest Annual Report available. From a total float of 82 mil, the top 30 shareholders are holding 62.3 mil or 76% of the total float.
This means that about only 19.7 mil shares or 24% are floating in the market if we consider the top 30 shareholders as long term investors.
Therefore, less resistance will mean a smooth movement towards uptrend.
3. Trading At 68% Discount to Its NTA of RM 1.04
Refer screenshot taken from latest QR. As we can note the following:
i. Total Assets amouting to RM 338.1 mil
ii. Total Liabilities amounting to RM 252.4 mil
iii. Net Asset exceeds Net Liabilities by RM 85.7 mil
iv. Total NTA stood at RM 1.04. With the latest closing price of 33.5c this means that the price is trading at 68% discount to its NTA
3. Technical Analysis - MACD Crossed Upwards - Pending a Breakout above 37c For Long Term Uptrend
Let's take a look at the daily chart of JERASIA :
A few observations:
i. From Circle 1 & 2, we can see that just last year in August 2020, the stock was trading at 92c peak price on the back of ultra high volume
ii. Refer Circle 3 & 4, we note that the price had again experienced a strong uptrend to around 70c but failed to break its downtrend channel, therefore resuming its downtrend
iii. Refer Circle 5 & 6, the price had again rallied to test and break its downtrend resistance at 50c, but failed again and continued downtrend
iv. Refer Circle 7, 8 and 9, recently we see that the MACD has crossed upwards, indicating a bullish trend. The volumes are picking up, as the price moves to test its downtrend resistance at around 37c area. Should a breakout happen at this level, the next resistance seen is at 50c then 70c
Based on my opinion, JERASIA should be given attention in coming weeks, based on below:
i. Economic recovery will improve consumer buying power, therefore benefiting apparel sector
