NTPM analysis 2009

From NTPM financial statement result, it showed a consistence result over 6 years (from year 2004 to 2009) with average ROE 18%.

  • Revenue is growing getting faster from 7.5% (2005) to 17.1% (2009)
  • Advertising expenses maintain at 2%
  • Raw materials & consumables used maintain around 36.3% to 38.8%
  • Repairs & Maintainance expenses slightly increase from 2.9% (year 2004) to 3.3% (2009)
  • Employee benefits expense is getting less with 16.7% (2004) to 15.2% (2009)
  • Sundry wages maintain at 0.6%
  • transportation and freight charges maintain around 5.8% to 6.4%
  • Utilities Costs maintain at around 6.3% to 6.6%
  • Financial Costs reduce from 1.1% (2005) to 0.6% (2009)

From the above financial statement,
  1. We can see that Raw Materials costs, Transportation cost and utilities costs are maintained at at flat percentage, which means NTPM has the power to pass the cost to the customer.
  2. Revenue grow means its market is getting bigger.
  3. Employee expenses and financial costs are getting less means the management is very efficiency and able to use well in manpower.
I believe NTPM is half monopoly the Malaysia toilet paper market and customers are royal to its famous brand PREMIER. This kind of royalty is hardly for the competitor to destroy unless something extraordinary thing happen. We need not to bother our economy condition for NTPM since toilet paper, tissue and sanitary products are daily use product and the awareness of healthy is already recognised by public.

But like this type of company, competition is very fierce, so the cost management must be good. So far NTPM is still doing a good job on that. I believe NTPM is a good company to invest in long term basic but however the return of your investment is depending on the price you invest.

For the current price 58.5 cents with last quarter result 1.3 cents, which give PE 11.25

The improvement in Group's profit for the financial year 2009 was due to increase in sales , softening of some comodity prices and improvement of operation and distribution efficiencies.

Rce Capital Bhd @ 29july2010

RCECAP is currently involved in the provision of financing to government servants through the Salary Deduction Scheme and factoring services. During FY09, the loan financing business was the main activity for the group, which accounted for 94% of the group PBT.

Customer: Government servants which have the huge market potential.

  1. Using salary deduction scheme which is very low risk for rcecap as rcecap will automatic receive loan payment from government servants, so which mean the possibility to get bad debt is low unless the government servants suddenly quit their job.

  1. It is not like commercial banking system use saving account money (low interest) to borrow to people. Its capital source is through bond or loan from other place (high interest). So it means it have to charge higher interest on government servant, which i think in long term, when government servant start to realise it, then will stop to borrow money from it.
  2. From now, Rcecap is half monopoly this government servant market because commercial bank yet to get the license to enter this market, but what if the government start to re list new license? It definitely will hurt its business as commercial bank can provide cheaper interest rate.

Why we should not buy investment link insurance product beside pure insurance product..

I would like to say buying insurance is essential in nowadays, but definitely not investment link insurance product! WHY??

The reason is very simple, if you buy investment link insurance product, you are actually buying two products in a single package, there in order meaning, you are paying two commission for each product (Insurance agent should be more happy about that).

If you know how to invest, my advice is just buy the pure insurance enough, and the other extra cash you use to invest yourself by generating more income.

But however, investment link insurance product is good for those people who lazy and do not how to invest. It can safe guard the those people' money as well as to create a discipline to force them to save the money.

Why should we invest our own rather than invest in mutual fund?

There are some disadvantages restrictions impose on the mutual fund investment action like equity exposure generally range from 75% to 95% of its NAV (Net Asset Value). So it means when the economy in down turn, the fund no matter how needs to invest atleast 75% of its NAV in stock market. It is the same as at most 95% in the stock market when economy is going up. This rule definitely will restrict the performance of the fund and it makes the fund performance almost in line with the KLCI benchmark.
Mutual fund normally will charge the investor a 5.5% service charge and 1.5% management fee. What does this mean?

It means your hard earn money before put into the investment and get the fruitful return, there is 5.5% of your money already gone. And within the whole financial year, they will charge you another 1.5% yearly management fee (will be divided on daily basis) no matter they help you make any return or not. So total 7.0% burn already without any reason. For the 7.0% burn, your fund must make atleast 7.53% return to cover back your initial investment capital. Yes! Believe me! There is 7.53%!
If another guy B put the same amount of the capital into fixed deposit and the return is 3%. Then that’s mean that guy, B return is outperformed the previous guy, A 10.53% without any risk!!

Mutual fund is too over diversify, normally they invest around 30 to 50 stocks at one time. It is less chance for them do have a bad performance relative to KLCI index in a single year so as well as good performance.

The mutual fund managers are paid consistently no matter how the funds perform. It is unfair for a person to receive a good pay but doing a moderate job.

However there are mutual fund managers do a very good job in the investment field and did bring a good return for investor, so if you want to invest in mutual fund, please think about the pros and cons and put your money only with those capable fund managers.
