GLOVE STOCKS – WHAT SHOULD I DO NOW? MY ANSWER IS ..
Firstly, thanks for all my readers and followers. I would like to share my ideas when I saw many of my them have dropped a message to me and some of forumers keep arguing like Supermax thread at i3investor forum. So all of about Glove Stocks being selling-off today. What should I do now? Panic selling.. Should I buy now?..or Should I cutloss now?
WHAT KIM SAID ABOUT GLOVES SECTOR NOW?
So here’s my answer to those asked about. From my view, Glove stocks were the selling targets on Bursa Malaysia today with many of them plummeting more than 10%, although the rising risk of a second wave of infections in China could mean another boost to rubber glove demand. Lets me tell you what’s my plan now again..as follows :-
My 10 Points, Why You Should “Buy” “Add” “Average” “Hold” and definitely with yet “No Sell”
1. Today’s price performances for glove stocks are considered very normal.
2. Gloves still on Bullish mode ‘refreshing signal’. The sell-off just a Consolidation Phase.
3. Just a healthy pullback after the strong March to record highs.
4. This what I said in my previous blog. “Buy in June – April history will repeat”.
5. You wont get back a cheaper price on July. Same as I did said in my previous blog back on April. “You wont get cheap prices in May”.
6. The pattern of Covid-19 waves is same at March-April level. The feared of second waves Covid-19 just started. As I said the most upcoming sector will hit is “Oil & Gas”.
7. Crude / Brent Oil will plunge at range USD30 – USD45 till end of this year.
8. Today’s decline prices could present an Entry Opportunity (EO) as Entry Price (EP) for those who missed the rallied / boat previously.
9. No functional and proven vaccine in sight yet in the fight against Covid-19. So I definitely agreed this sector would continue to attract interest as the strong demand sustain for a prolonged period of time at least as I said before till earlier FY21.
10. Dont worry about our KLCI, as I forsees it has been on a hyperbolic uptrend in the last few weeks. So it sent out a signal to me sign of overheating and one could expect the market to be poised for healthy ‘correction and pullback’.
The conclusion is “BUY” or “ADD” or “HOLD”. My prediction this week will strong and massive rebound or rally on glove stocks.
My Strongest Key-Points is :
1. The Coronavirus (Covid-19) still drives rubber gloves in demand.
The global demand for gloves maintained an 8% CAGR in the last decade and as per the initial estimates from the MARGMA, the overall global demand for rubber gloves stood 268 billion pieces in 2018. Surely this 2020 could be done more than 300 billion with Covid-19 affected.
Rubber gloves suppliers of Malaysia supplied 168.8 billion pieces or met 63% of the global demand, amounting to RM18.8 billion in 2018. Moreover, rubber gloves make up more than 70% of all the rubber good exports for Malaysia.
An analysis of Malaysian rubber glove industry, it was analysed that the growth in the healthcare industry worldwide is one of the key drivers for the rubber gloves industry. Further, the anticipated implementation of USP 800, which will be effective from 1st Dec. 2019 (as per the recent guidelines from the US Pharmacopeia Convention), is seen resulting in a healthy demand from the US, which already accounts for more than a third of the global demand for gloves.
Malaysia hold 65% of the global market and will continue its leading position in coming years based on the fact that the US hold 35% export value for Malaysian gloves and the local government is also taking steps to support rubber gloves industry like Entry Point Project of the promotion to increase Malaysia’s share on the global map.
Malaysia’s rubber glove players could also benefit from the latest US-China trade spat as medical gloves from China are on the US$ 200 billion lists for Chinese goods, subject to a 10% import tax and this will certainly hamper China’s rubber gloves manufacturers’ competitiveness.
Internally for Malaysia, the major producers have either increased their capacity or are increasing it gradually, for the next 1 to 3 years, in order to fulfil the rising global demand. The growth in the top line of the top five companies in Malaysia; Top Glove, Hartalega, Kossan, CarePlus and Riverstone is in line with the rising global demand for gloves.
Over the near term, a marginal appreciation in the MYR against the USD will aid Malaysian players on raw material costs (Latex), which is mainly imported from Thailand, however, cost rationalizations are seen getting negated by modestly lower realizations as a major part of sales are export driven.
Malaysia continues to hold the dominant position in the global market with Thailand standing a distant second and China holds a marginal market share of 5%. Malaysia is backed by some of the largest players in the world and support from the government is expected to continue with its leading position in the near future. Furthermore, as per mid-year estimates from the MARGMA, the annual growth in demand is expected to be 15% for the next few years. I feel that the industry demand would see an increase from the broader average of 8 to 15-20% this year, with 30% looking a bit high on expectations due to pandemic Covid-19. This strong increase is anticipated by a high percentage growth from global due the pandemic went to worldwide alert.
2. Fears Of Fresh Virus Wave (2nd Waves)
Today, Coronavirus Cases hit 8,060,443 and the deaths nearly 437,052. People are fearful about new cases rising, but at some point when you move 45% off the lows in such a short period of time, any excuse will do to have a nice consolidation of the gains.
And now a dismal economic outlook from the U.S. Federal Reserve and jitters over a resurgence in coronavirus cases sent the Wall Street’s main indexes for their worst week since March.
Once the market global stable back in a few days, first recovery and surges sector MUST be a glove stocks. So think twice if you want to cut-loss any of your holding glove stocks.
3. My other points same as I said on previously blog
1. Buy in June. History will repeat on previous April2. Covid-19, Phase II just started3. Other Glove Stocks limited signal4. Crude and Brent Oil upcoming breakdown repeat.5. Dow Jones will send to bear back.6. My real target still remained with no changes.
More details, please read here
Ok, so If we recall back on February 2020, the market is likely to see a shortage of 10.8bn pcs of rubber gloves for this year amid new demand from the coronavirus and the US influenza season. The recent virus outbreak is expected to drive demand growth for rubber gloves for the year, with earnings growth for glovemakers likely to be stronger in the next coming quarters soon.
On the back of a previously positive results of Top Gloves and Hartalega. The rubber gloves sector is seeing signs of an uptick in demand in subsequent quaters.
As we know the latest Top Gloves Berhad had annouced their excellent result. From here, I am seeing also perspective as I had told many times to public that Gloves Sector standing on “Defending Stocks Territory”. Also, I am agreed some analysts said Top Glove have projected a net profit of as high as RM3 billion for FY21 So if they really can archieved that of course and definitely my last target RM35 surely hit FY21.
TWO (2) GLOVE STOCKS IN MY FOCUS NOW
HARTALEGA – After the uptrend. Now, the stock is in consolidation stages. The stock might move around the price range 11.20 – 13.40 with strong volume. Once the consolidation is done. You will see the next wave of breakout of this stock to reach my highest Target Price (TP).
2. TOP GLOVE
TOP GLOVE – It almost wanted to complete the 1st wave of uptrend after the breakout. As long as it move above the moving average. High chance for consolidation for next wave to move higher. For those who want to now how you still can make money even the price of the stock already up high. This is the good timing for those who still want to make money and buy on this counter.
