How China Dongxiang (Group) Co., Ltd. (HKG:3818) Could Add Value To Your Portfolio

Michael Crabtree

As an investor, I look for investments which does not compromise one fundamental factor for another. By this I mean, I look at stocks holistically, from their financial health to their future outlook. In the case of China Dongxiang (Group) Co., Ltd. (HKG:3818), it is a financially-robust company with a a great track record high-grade dividend payments, trading at a great value. Below is a brief commentary on these key aspects. For those interested in digger a bit deeper into my commentary, read the full report on China Dongxiang (Group) here.

Established dividend payer and good value

3818’s ability to maintain an adequate level of cash to meet upcoming liabilities is a good sign for its financial health. This implies that 3818 manages its cash and cost levels well, which is an important determinant of the company’s health. 3818’s debt-to-equity ratio stands at 4.7%, which means its debt level is low. Investors’ risk associated with debt is very low and the company has plenty of headroom to grow debt in the future, should the need arise. 3818’s shares are now trading at a price below its true value based on its discounted cash flows, indicating a relatively pessimistic market sentiment. Investors have the opportunity to buy into the stock to reap capital gains, if 3818’s projected earnings trajectory does follow analyst consensus growth, which determines my intrinsic value of the company. Compared to the rest of the luxury industry, 3818 is also trading below its peers, relative to earnings generated. This bolsters the proposition that 3818’s price is currently discounted.

3818’s reputation for being one of the best dividend payers in the market is supported by the fact that it has been steadily growing its dividend payments over the past ten years and currently is one of the top yielding companies on the markets, at 8.9%.

    EUR/USD Weekly Price Forecast – Euro Has Strong Week Heading Towards Resistance

    The Euro has had a nice week, rallying towards the 1.1150 level. Ultimately, this is a market that should be sold on signs of exhaustion, and a short could be had at the 1.12 level as it is an area where we've seen buyers and sellers react to this level, and of course the 50 week moving average is something that longer-term position traders pay attention to as well. You can see that it has acted as dynamic resistance for quite some time, so there's no reason to think that it will change now.

    U.S. prosecutors aren't done with Oleg Deripaska, the Russian billionaire who figured prominently in Special Counsel Robert Mueller's case against Donald Trump's campaign chairman. In what could be an offshoot of Mueller's work, federal authorities are seeking records seized from a U.K. company associated with Deripaska, according to documents filed in a London court this week. As part of the previously undisclosed inquiry, U.S. authorities are seeking evidence of “money laundering, tax offenses and fraud offenses” from 18 individuals and companies including Terra Services Ltd., a real estate firm that until last year was controlled by Deripaska, the filings say.

    'Shock:' Analyst reacts to CFO departure at Red Hat

    A week after Red Hat CFO Eric Shander unexpectedly left the company, little information on his departure has come out of Red Hat Tower other than that the decision came down to “workplace standards.” "As we've previously said, Eric was dismissed without pay," said a Red Hat spokeswoman Wednesday. "There is no additional information I can provide." Following an earnings call Wednesday, Logan Purk, an analyst with Edward Jones, admits learning the news last week was a “shock.” “It's never really good when a senior leader or a member of a management team has to resign suddenly,” he says. While Red Hat is under the IBM umbrella, it operates largely as a standalone company – making the CFO position vital, he says.
