QAF - Wah, Gardenia roti nowadays is not cheap! A loft of Banana bread cost $4 and multi-grains cost 3.80 . It use to be 3.20 and 3.00. The inflation really jack up the price, jin jialet!

 These 2 days saw most of the stocks counter rebound yet she gostun! 

This is really a roti stocks with little or not much movement.  The only consolation is their yearly dividend of 5 cents. Other than that is really nothing much! 

Last Friday closed at 81 cents. Yield is about 6.25%.

In September saw the director bought back share but recently didnt see any buying back. 

Is a tortoise counter.  It may not appeal to all.

Looks like price may go down to revisit 79 cents. 

Pls dyodd.

 For those who like Gardenia bread, I think she is holding up well during the Bear mode situation!

At 6% yield, I think is quite a good yield level!

Pls dyodd.

  After Ex.dividend on 7th September, the price has corrected to 0.795 looks rather interesting!

At 79.5 cents, yield is about 6.29%. NaV is 0.827.

The recent share bought back by the company director it might be indication of the price is trading at an undervlaue price level. The director and executive director Lin Kejian bought 1,018,200 shares at an average price of S$0.815 per share. 

I have nibbled a bit today  - 8th September at 0.795 per share.

Not a call to buy or sell!

Pls dyodd. 

This is a purely dividend play ! Not much capital gains as trading volume is always very low kind of illiquid! At 0.81, yield is more than 6%.

Their track records has been consistently paying out 5 cents dividend for past few years so, I think it will likely be the same for Year 2023!

Pls dyodd. 


Yearly dividend of 5 cents.

Yield is above 6% at 0.815.

Net cash position. 

But cash flow is slightly negative. 

Recently,  the director bought back some share.

This might be an indication that the price is  undervalued .

Please dyodd. 

QAF core businesses are into Bakery, Distribution and Warehousing!
