This week, Best World International (Best World) has caught my attention.
Why is it interesting?
a) Chart seems to be in the midst of a double bottom formation
With reference to Chart 1 below, Best World has fallen 29 percent from an intraday high of $1.90 on 19 March 2018 to close $1.35 on 19 September 2018. It has been trading in a range $1.20 – 1.39 since 15 May 2018. Indicators are mixed with MACD and RSI exhibiting bullish divergences during this period. Except for 200D EMA which is levelling, all other EMAs are rising. 20D has already formed a golden cross formation with 50D EMA. Best World has closed four out of the five trading sessions above its 200D EMA (currently around $1.34) which is the first time since 15 May 2018. Volume has been increasing since late August 2018, especially on “up” days (i.e volume is higher on those days when Best World trades higher). RSI last traded 67.8 on 19 September 2018. ADX has strengthened from 13 on 11 Jul 2018 to 36.5 on 19 September 2018, amid positively placed DIs.
A sustained break above $1.39 points to an eventual technical measured target $1.58. There is strong resistance around $1.39 – 1.40. A sustained break below $1.20 on a surge in volume points to a measured technical target $1.01 derived from $1.20- (1.39 – 1.20). On balance, the chart looks promising with a potential bullish setup.
Near term supports: $1.34 / 1.32 / 1.29 – 1.30 / 1.27
Near term resistances: $1.39 -1.40 / 1.43 – 1.45 / 1.47 / 1.54
Chart 1: Neckline resistance $1.39 – 1.40 is key
b) Upcoming 2H18 results may be strong
Based on the company’s 2Q18 results, management is still hopeful of year on year profit growth in forward-FY18 even though 1H18 net profit is $14.9 million vs 1H17 net profit $21.7 million. FY17 net profit is around $55.7 million. Thus, taking an arithmetic calculation, the next two quarters should register $20m net profit each to be comparable to FY17 net profit of $55.7 million. In other words, results in 2H18 should be strong.
a) It has moved up from an intraday low of $1.21 on 27 August 2018 to close $1.35 on 19 September 2018. i.e. This is not near the recent lows. Furthermore, RSI is approaching the overbought area. Having said that, based on historical RSI, RSI can easily reach 85 or higher.;
b) Company has mentioned that they are seeing strong demand for their products in China. However, analysts are cautious at the moment. DBS has dropped coverage after its 2Q results. As of now, CIMB is the only analyst covering with a target price $1.39;
c) I have no direct access to management and am not extremely familiar with the company. Readers who wish to know more about Best World can click the link HERE;
d) Best World is very volatile thus, it may not be suitable to most people.
