Just my own calculated guess. The inclusion of YTL and YTLP in the MSCI Malaysia index is indeed positive for YTL group. Looking at the utilities sector YTL is indeed a attractive option and undemanding vs it's peer. YTL is trading at 14 times {PE} vs TNB at 23 times {PE} or PChem at 33 times {PE}. Using others as a comparison e.g. Sunway group at 21 times {PE} or IJM at 24 times {PE}, whether in the utilities, energy, construction or multi congolemerate. YTL in terms of growth opportunities or earnings upkeep definetly is a buy. Tomorrow being a Friday will be very interesting trading day. Not a buy call just sharing my 2 sen

The volume of YTL and YTLP transacted is unbelievable. Lots and lots of trades transacted within seconds. Never witness such a big spike in trading volume within the limited time frame. Everthing you click or quote on the board. Buyers just click and confirm. The intensity & velocity totally mind blowing. Well done YTL group

Genting management needs to come clean on the closure. Telling us closure due to renovation is unacceptable, laughable or treating the investing public as dumb. Is it because of licensing, structural defects or unseen forces. Let us know

Tan teng boo {capial dynamics} is extremely confident that our local market is ripe for a prolong bull ring. Nevertheless let us be rationale or sanquine that the market days of gung go days of the 93-94 where the market touch a high of 1314 points from a low of 645 points. Nowdays majority of trade is monopolised by local and foreign funds, banks, pension funds whereby retail retailers only make up a limited percentage. For the fund's manager and dealers they are extremely through in their investment research trading strategies { not the "kedai makan"} coffee talk. Most IB's set YTLP target price at around 5.00 { forward earnings} and YTL at 3.00. Of course the TP can be revised upwards if the next quarter result comes in higher than the street expectations. Always do your own research before you invest

YTL group operates in a multiple different segments vs the glove mania sector which is easily duplicated. Remember the gloves dipping lines are manufactured in China and shipped to the buyer directly for installation. YTL group business is centre in utilities, power and energy, waste water treatment,digital banking, 5G yes telco, oil production, land & property development and thier core construction business. Not forgetting their soon to commence YTLP A1 DC operations. Just do your own research before you buy or sell

Yes. Our local market have underperformed for the past decades vs our neighbouring innovative and FDI inflows. Hopefully the current political situation in the country has stablised {the next 4 years} FDI funds will cherry pick the underperformed market like our market. Bear in mind our ringgit has depreciated vs the USD at 4.8 which is at their lowest point for the past 26 years. If FDI funds manager betting on risk vs reward. Currency, underperformed, laggard market I will place my insurance bet on Malaysia. Not forgetting the YTL story which was largely ignored by pundits until last year. The PE ratio placed on YTL is unjustified low at 10 times vs other energy & utilities companies like TNB {20 times} or a multi bagger Sunway at 20 times. Dollar for dollar it make more sense to invest in the YTL group { which derives 90% of its earning from its foreign operations} not a buy call just sharing my personal view on the market. Pleae do your own research before you buy or sell

I am not an expert on numbers but certain revenue numbers figures and profit indicators of YTL 2Qtr announced yesterday is verify and prepared by a team of professionals engaged & employed by the company before submission to Bursa. Not a hearsay or just "pasar malam" gossiping but based on actual reported accounting figures against previous qtr and YoY comparison. Not a speculative hype to rile up prices. YTL net profit jumped 589 million for the 2nd qtr ended 32Dec up from 96 million a year earlier. For the 1st 6 months of FY 24. YTL recorded a net profit of 1.11 billion against 133 million recorded a year ago. Whether YTL earning has reached its peak is subjective. Going by Management guidance they expect the group to continue maintain & operate satisfactory. Look how Nvidia profit has continued to outperform. This figures are reported in the business times and also in Bursa website

YTL or YTLP power up rally not by retail investor but by foreign funds holding a long term view on YTL group. Group earnings in SGD or USD. Only 10% in MYR. Look at the core business structure. Partner with Nvidea on the A1 smart data centre. Whenever there is a price retracement at 2.15 - 2.20 smart money will accumulate.

For myself having a long term view any short term share price fluctuations isn't really a concern. However our ringgit depreciating value vs the USD is a real concern. LCtitan group borrowings of USD 2.2 billion in 2020with the Korean excim bank to finance their factory Indonesian plant an expansion is a real concern. From an estimated cost of app 10billion ringgit. Now it's has ballooned up to 11 billion in ringgit terms. Obviously this USD borrowing's will have an impart on thier bottom line. Worse the Fed Reserve isn't going to lower their rates any time soon. The Korean Exim Bank rates aren't cheap { at 5.0-5.5%

Out of curiosity. Why people repost past items or news on YTL {without knowing the whole story} the acquisition of Tuaspring power plant by YTL Seraya was done way back in May 2022. YTLP paid SGD $270 million for the power station in cash { whereas the original price consideration was SGD 332 million} by a combination of shares & cash consideration. Hyflux financial position was untenable { PUB } Tuaspring station was taken over by PUB Singapore. Hyflux filed for bankruptcy in 2018 and Maybank. Singapore appointed insolvency firm to take over Hyllux assets. Oliver Lum { chairman of Hyflux} was charged with corporate breaches. YTLP acquisition of Tuaspring power plant added its combined power capacity to 2,402 MW { making YTLP the second largest power producer in the island state} the fall of Oliver Lum was the talk of the town. Hyflux recycled treated water was highly touted and acclaimed as a local home ground international brand. YTLP by paying 100% in cash to acquired the plant make a savings of SGD 62 million. A corporate masterstroke when you have the financial strength & cloub

Mr Pang 72. The possibility & opportunities are endless. Remember Boustead sold part of thier Kulai Estate to YTLP in late 2021 for 430 million. The estate land size is 664 Ha {1 Ha @2.471 acres =1,640 acres} Kulai distance is around 40-45 km from Singapore .if Nvidia can set up AI-DC hub at Kulai with YTL. There is no stopping if Nvidia {Jensen Huang} starting or contemplating having its own chips factory at Johor. Afterall one of Nvidia suppliers { KINSUS } mulls starting a chips substrate plant. This news was reported in Nikkei Asia on 16 Jan 2024. YTL group price can really fly if this can materialised. A word of caution { just my own idea } not Francis Yeoh or Jensen. Huang

Without prejudice or disrespect to any parties. Beryaya led rail group consortium submitted the RFI proposal on 15 Jan. Based on My HSR announcement only short listed company or consortium will only be invited to submit the RFP proposal after evaluation. Berjaya rail group has team up with multiple partners. IJM, MRCB, KTMB, Hitachi Rail, Hyundai Rotem and Deutsch AG unit DB { GMbh } engineering. Whereas YTL group is said to partnering with China CRRC { world largest rolling rail stock manufacturer } under I belt 1 road project initiated by the Chinese government. Soft loans and financing is undertaken by CCB { China Construction Bank} which is involved with ECRL. At this point we can only guess the group that has the expertise and proven TRACK record and deep pockets will be the winner in this beauty contest. Based on latest news announcement Berjaya group returned to the black in the first quarter { Sept 30} with a profit of RM 15.8 million against a net loss of RM - 16.4 in the same quarter last year. Financial wise Berjaya led group of multiple partners needs a huge cash injections from 5 or 6 it's partners. The HSR link cost is estimated anything between RM 100-120billion. the total outlay may even exceed RM 200 billion for the 10 year timeliness. We are not privy to the terms and requirements. We can ONLY make our own calculated guess. Just sharing my own 2 sen view & ideas

Bison bull. The objections was raised by Tough & Go {at that point of time} the only card payment accepted at all the highways.

Touch & Go has stop the sale of smart tag to promote their RFID. Motorist question why the restrictions of other forms of payment except for touch & go. The proposal was drawn up based on our Southern neighbours electronic multi payment channels but operated by a single clearing company like a clearing house. Teras technology developed the payment card and Rangkaian Segar Sdn bhd { now known as Touch & "Go sdn bhd} operated the system.

True. The price is still undervalued vs it's peer. In Singapore, UOB kay Hin initiates a buy on Keppel DC REIT with a TP of SinDollar $2.10. Keppel DC REIT focus is on rental of collocation data { accounts for 65% of its income} whereas YTLP have the diamond in the park JV venture with Nvidia AI hub plus it's own DC centre spread across KL, Johor and Singapore. YTLP is now only price at SinDollar $1.05. Talk about mi's match pricing between a pure play DC hub vs REIT DC. Now we understand why neighbours are jumping on board.

Using Rapid synergy or Pertama digital as a comparison is rather contentious. Without disrespect or prejudicw to any parties. YTL and YTLP was added to the FBM Bursa KLCi and MSCI list of largest 30 companies.
