The share prices has shoot up to $6.93 before the release of 3RD Quarter result.
It has retreated from a high of $6.93 to $6.30.

Looking Forward Wilmar might stand to reap the positive benefit of better
Asian economies, especially China, India and Indonesia.

Growing demand for high quality processed agricultural and consumer products due to rising affluence & rapid urbanisation in China

Also Wilmar is well-positioned due to:
–Investment in core businesses and newer markets
–Emphasis on emerging markets
–Strong financial position
–Constantly looking out for attractive investment opportunities

The recent news of venturing into China property business has more or less affected people confidnece level why they are doing something that is not their main core of business.
It may be their long term moves to take advantages of China property boom.

The market has penalised this decision and the shares prices has been dropped substantially from $6 - $5.59

I think for long term is still a good opportunity to consider to accumulate some .
Any further price dropped below $5.50 provide a very good buying opportunity.

Ezion Holdings Updates

The company has just announced on 13th October 2010 that it has gone into

This contract is however not expected to have a material impact on the
Group’s earnings per share or net tangible assets per share for the financial year 2010 but are certainly going to boost the revenue for 2011.

The vessel will be used mainly for the haulage of cargos that are required
by the Oil & Gas industry in Australia and Papua New Guinea from the United States of America.

This is being viewed as a positive development as estimated more vessels might be needed for the same deployment of the similar cargoes for the same trade routes and hence forth more contracts and revenues for further growth.

Currently the price is 73.5 cents.

The Easy Way To Profit From a Booming Market

There is an easy and cheaper way that you may profit from the booming stock market.
For example, simply just buy into the entire Singapore stock market or what we usually refers to as the index of the country's stock market.

In Singapore, it is known as the 'Straits Times Index' that measures the performance of the Singapore stock market.

The Singapore Straits Times Index(STI) is being calculated based on the weighted-average prices of the 30 component stocks listed on the Singapore Stock Exchange.

We may buy into STI ETF which is known as Straits Times Index Exchange Traded Fund that is designed to track the performance of the STI.

An ETF counter is being traded just like any other stock counter listed on the Singapore Stock Exchange.During the boom market, the index will usually tend to trend higher and thus the Exchange Traded Fund prices will also rise/appreciate. You tend to make money if you are able to hold it on a longer term.

The closing price of the STI ETF as of 12th October 2010 is $3.24 per shares and buying one lot ( 1000 shares) on this STI ETF will cost you $3240.

STI ETF also pays yearly dividends of about 2 - 3 percents.
If the Singapore Straits Times Index is able to reach the high of 3800 points then the price of this STI ETF would also rise likewise.
Of course, if the STI ETF has reached a new high, then it will be good for you to take profit and then buy back later at a lower price.

Stock Oversold & Overbought Indicator

How to we know when a particular stock counters is oversold or overbought at that particular point of time?
The answer to the question is generally to look at the movement which measures the rate of change of the shares price of this counter over a certain time frame.

The two common indicators are Relative Strength Indicator(RSI) and Stochastic Indicator.

The RSI ususlly goes up and down from the value of 0 - 100.

When the line goes below 30,this indicates that the stock most probably is oversold.

If the line moves above 70, it means that the stock could be overbought.

The RSI is being measured over a specific time period of 14 days.

Stochastic Indicator is plotted with two lines moving up and down from the value of 20 - 80 .

There are two lines. One is known as '%K' and the 2nd line is known as '%D'.

A buy indication would be when this Stochastic both %K and %D drop below the value of 20 and then rises above that level.

Sell when this Stochastic indicator rises above the value of 80 and then falls below this level.

How to take advantage of MACD

MACD generally means Moving Average Convergence Divergence.
This MACD line is being derived by using the differene between 26 days & 12 days moving average.
This MACD line usually moves above or below the Zero line.
The 9 day moving average line or we may call it as the Signal Line is being drawn either across or below this MACD line to let you measure/judge whether is it a Buy or Sell indication.

The Blue color line is the MACD line and the Red color line represent Signal Line.

A Buy indicator is formed usually when the MACD Line rises and cut across and above this Signal Line.

A Sell indicator would be the opposite when the MACD Line falls below this Signal Line.

Comfort Delgro

Comfort Delgro is currently trading about 13x EPS and is expected to benefit from the daily increase of ridership for both Buses and Trains rides.
This might help the company to achieve a higher revenue growth for 2010 and hence a better or higher Dividends for year 2010.
At the current price of $1.54 I think is a good time to accumulate some as the Moving Average for 25/50 days and also the Stochastic is pointing towards a favorable condition.I think it might have the tendency to rise and test $1.60 soon.

CIMB has a price target of $1.90 and Phillip Securities has a price target of $1.75.

The shares has an upside potential of about 13.5 - 22% which I think is quite attractive.

How to know when the Stock Price is on an uptrend

Most of the Stock brokerage securities companies will provide you the tools to read the MA(Moving Average) 10,14,25 or 50 days etc.They are sometimes being indicated with different colors of lines being drawn on the price chart.
You may perform a right click on the mouse on any stock counter and select something like Live charts or Historical charts etc. You may then select Preferences such as MA 10,MA 14 or MA 50 etc.

It is strongly recommended to wait for the price to reverse into an uptrend and cut across and above its 14 days or 25 days before making a buy decision.

Happy Investing.
