  • is it syariah compliance?

  • worth to subscribe? seems to be PE quite high in 2009 and 2008. total revenue also dropped in 2010.

  • afiza,

    Yes it is shariah counter. They mentioned it in their prospectus.


    From my point of view, it is worth because PE is low for 2010. Although, revenue dropping, PAT was higher.

  • How does UOA compare with other property companies like IGB or Glomac? Is it overpriced at RM3 and your comment on the 5 sen par. TQ.

  • Please advice me whether can buy or not? I have no idea, and have no confident to buy.

  • M Shariff Sulaiman,

    From my point of view, par value does not mean much as long as the PE ratio is low.

    For me, I’m going to subscribe for this IPO.

    Some news – UOA gets EPF as cornerstone investor.

  • can UOA IPO subscribe from maybank2u? why i din’t find any IPO share ?

  • neoh,

    Normally, you should be able to. Sometimes, IPO application in Maybank2u coming slightly late. I can see it in CIMBClicks.

  • Got to check the prospectus..i heard in prospectus stated online application (eIPO) only can be done via cimbclicks but u can apply via atm machines for other bank..correct me if im wrong 😉

  • The underwriters for the IPO were CIMB Investment Bank Bhd, RHB Investment Bank Bhd, OSK Investment Bank Bhd, HwangDBS Investment Bank Bhd and Hong Leong Investment Bank Bhd

    No Maybank rite? Of course you can’t subscribe it through maybank. 🙂

  • Any dividend policy mentioned?
    I’m considering over this weekend.

  • Ipo lover,

    I just look at section 20.6 of the prospectus, it only mentioned cimbclicks.com.my & eipocimb.com. So you are right.


    I think its nothing to do with the underwriter.

    Yes, look at the post above for details.

  • if i am a new investor and doesn’t have a CDS, can i still apply for this new IPO?

  • aimy,
    Applying IPO without CDS account is not possible. You have to open CDS account & it is not difficult.

  • I have just checked Maybank2u and i dont see i there. Go to CIMB Clicks and it is there. ^^ I will be applying for sure! ^^ Going to the banks now…

  • Fair Value / Target Price by local stock brokers,

    OSK – RM3.57
    RHB – RM3.45

  • Do you think is worth to buy ?
    It seem like keep dropping since listing ~~
    I want to ALL IN Queve at RM2.50 ~ 😀
    Hope can help ya !! 🙂

  • Vin, I still believe for for long term UOADEV should be OK but not sure what price to enter. The price still going down.

  • What do u think gonna happen to this share? It’s really worrying, looking at the trend…

  • anissue, I think it will reach its lowest price & start to rebound but nobody know how low the price going to be.

  • UOAD is sinking like a titanic today, dropped 10 sen to RM2.09. Lowest for the day is RM2.07. Why should the company get listed in the 1st place when it couldn’t even sustain its share price? The Company is suck. The SC and Bursa Malaysia should start their investigation into this sucker company and stop approving companies with low valuations for listing.

  • I think this is a bull-shit counter! All our so-called professional stock analyst on this counter are either not trustworthy or they are just useless causing the general public to lose hefty sum of money by claiming that it is worth more than RM3.50.The SC should have suspended the counter from trading even when it fell to RM2.How can a counter fall to such a level at such a short time.
