Buy Malaysia. I am.

This week is a very important week for the Glove sector. Whatever the outcome, I think it’s important to know everything in life there is always going to be different voices & opinions. We cannot expect everyone to think like us and that’s why humans are all unique and different. 

 
I think how the investment community views the Glove sector is diverse. But for the stock to go up and share price to rally, the majority must believe in it for the buying momentum to outweigh the selling momentum. 
 
I do not know what will happen in future but my view is strongly in favour of gloves for many reasons including but not limited to :
 
1. Strong earnings visibility for the next 12 months (min) with / without vaccine 
 
2. Shortage is acute especially for nitrile Gloves 
 
3. ASP price increased has been and will remain elevated for some time
 
4. Structural change in demand and hygiene habits  
 
5. Monopolistic position of Malaysia supply to the Global markets 
 
6. Valuation is still lagging actual earnings growth and it will be reflected in coming quarters 
 
7. Huge cash inflow for Glove players. Cash is king especially during weak economic environment. 
 
8. No other better sector / industry / stocks for alternative investment opportunities in the near term.
 
9. Some local funds / local investors may not believe in the Glove sector. But I believe in it strongly. My belief is objective based on data, facts and numbers. Not emotions. There is deep value in Glove sector especially those with strong quality management like Hartalega, Riverstone, Kossan, Top Glove. 
 
10. Lastly, the Glove sector is very relatable to retail investors who can touch, feel or understand the nature of the business due to usage in daily life. 
 
 
I remembered in 2008, during the Global Financial Crisis, before Lehman Brothers collapsed, they went to Warren Buffet for help to save them from bankruptcy. Warren Buffet didn’t save Lehman Brothers after assessing their books which contained too many toxic assets. But he did go in big to others like Bank of America, Citigroup, Goldman Sachs etc. He advocated “Buy America”. He believe in US’s resiliency and ability for the US financial markets to remain world leader despite the mess they caused.
 
 
 
I am going by the same playbook. I advocate “Buy Malaysia”. The Glove sector is one of the few things as a Malaysian we should be proud of. I believe this sector has shown its ability to defy adversity, rise against odds to become a global leader. This is one of the few sectors that Malaysia will remain a global leader post Covid-19 and for many years to come.
 
Congrats all on the strong rebound of the Glove sector. For those who held  through the selloff last week, you deserve the pat on the back.

Food for thought:

Dear Mr Koon, Thank you for your suggestion. I have no doubt that Supermax earnings are strong and coming results to be announced next week would be very good as well due to their business model and price strategy. However, in considering to write stocks, I look beyond only profit growth rate. I consider many other quantitative and qualitative aspects among which, Management is one of the most important criteria to me when valuing business / stock. A good management which is honest, accountable, has strong integrity and look long term beyond immediate short term profits is what I value. In simpler terms, I prefer paying a fair price for a good business with wonderful management instead of paying a cheap price for a good business with questionable management. Thanks.Tradeview

Why don't you recommend Supermax because it has the best profit growth rate. It has shot up more than 1,500% in the last 6 months, very much more than any of the glove stocks. Top Glove has shot up only about 500% during the same period. Koon Yew Yin
