  • another overvalue counter.. @@

  • 1) RM29.8m for goodwill as opposed to RM10m PPE? What goodwill does this new insurance company have?
    2) “Risk: we depend on AirAsia” – High positive correlation with AirAsia is dangerous. airline business tends to be very volatile.
    3) Competition – Can this company ever compete in general insurance market in the future? Or is the growth limited to certain niche (e.g. airline etc.)

    Conclusion: Stay away until earnings become more visible.

  • 1 million Blog, DO you in already ?

  • Under current uncertain market conditions advisable to stay away. On listing day price will be below set IPO.

  • wont going to apply for that..look at the P/E..even more than Astro..
    maybe another Astro in the making..

    • Am still stuck with Astro till today. Keeping it no choice!

      • hmm..good luck bro..now just can hope and wait for EPF to enter Astro, if not Astro hard to reach back rm3.

  • Price discounted to RM1.35…

    • Does not seem to be good. Remember what happen to UOADEV in 2010.
