  • Re-listing company, wishing to apply but still have the concerns.What do you think?

  • I wanted to apply too but looking at the PE Ratio, seem on high side.

  • May apply but using the same strategy, sell on first day.

  • How much do we expect to get the first day premium? how much is fair prioe?

  • rusdi, I will post the fair value/target price when I get the information.

  • A few of IPOs popping up recently, may I know why?

  • insane, I guess they want to launched it before the end of 1H2011.

  • If you going to apply for IPO via internet banking, please do not use CIMBClicks to apply. The money for unsuccessful applicants will only 2-3 days after balloting as compared to Maybank only 1 day. The IPO money will use to generate interest in the money market at your cost.

  • Backing by many cornerstone investors, bumi armada seems to be a good ipo to apply for. But rm 3.15 is a bit expensive for this ipo. Noted also bumi armada does not have any fixed dividend policy at the momment. BTW, can you comment on company liabilities and D/E ratio?

  • Apply via Internet,
    Yes, I agree with you. I’m always applying from CIMBClicks. It takes longer time to get the money back. Somebody need to make complain on this.

    Yes, they have connerstone is good but it does not guarantee the price will maintain. Look at UOADEV, they have EPF as connerstone, but the price still drop. However, Bumi Armada have many connerstone when compare with UOADEV.

    From their prospectus, Gearing ratio is about 0.65 post IPO.

  • There are different opinion about this counter. however fair value prices of other IPOs obtained from this website are not far off. Can you tell what is the fair value of this counter? thank you to this blog

  • Wasil, I will post when the information become available.

  • Why Bumi Armada PE quite high ? My strategy will sell at the first day if got la. ROE for last 3 years more than 15%

    this company get many goverment project. Can we use this indicator to buy before election this year.

    what your opinion about this stock?

  • I have few question here:
    1) How to apply through ATM?
    2) Which ATM machine can be use? As i know Hong Leong ATM cannot be use…I try it before.
    2) What is the fee to apply IPO through ATM? If i use CIMB ATM card to apply how much does it cost? or if i use CIMB ATM card at Maybank ATM machine how much will it cost? I don’t like to apply through CIMB online because it cost me RM2.50 to apply.

    As i know Hong Leong bank target price is RM3.30 so i think it is worth it to try. Please for those who had experience on applying IPO through ATM please share it with me. Thank you very much in advance. My e-mail address is [email protected]

  • I don’t think apply through ATM is difficult but I never try myself. Regarding the fee, I think it is very much similar with internet banking. Also, I think you can’t apply using CIMB ATM at Maybank ATM.
