Is Dutaland still cheap after up by more than 66% from 39.5 sen to 67 sen now?

October 9, 2017 By Calvin Tan Smart Investment

Dear Friends,

Dutaland already up 66%! Time to be cautious? Yes, if you go short term punting as Bursa is filled with day traders and gamblers. But Calvin still think it has more room to go up on these reasons:

  1. A Cash Proceed of Rm750 millions will come in a month’s time. Since total paid up shares are 846,118,039 it tanslates to a 88.6 sen Cash windfall. That’s 21.6 sen more than current price of 67 sen today.

2. Some Cash will be deployed to complete the Grand Duta Hotel. Already 33 storey or more up. So less Cash will be needed. Will there be a surplus for a Cash Payout?

3. Why there is a POSSIBLE CASH PAYOUT?

Pm Corp did that & paid out 8 Sen Cash

RceCap did that and paid out 7.5 Sen Cash

So for no reason why go for Capital Exercise?


Company Announcements

So Duta Yap has in mind to give a Cash Payout after Disposing Assets?
For that we must wait.
4. DUTA YAP’s Holding Cost for Dutaland shares ABOVE RM1.00!!
Even at 67 sen Dutaland’s Shares still cheap compared to Duta Yap’s Buying price at Rm1.05

Date of Notice 27-Apr-2007
On 4th April 2007 Duta Yap bought 248,571,429 Shares of Dutaland at Rm1.05
Securities after change was 263,238,615 shares
So  248,571,429 Shares of Dutaland means Duta Yap holding cost is Rm1.05 at 94.4% of his Total Cost
Less see how much if we take a 30% Discount off Rm1.05
So i.05 x .0.7 = 73.5 sen
Anything below 73.5 sen we have a 30% margin of safety compared to Duta Yap
