KUALA LUMPUR (Dec 21): As some licensed proprietary traders are
trading for direct gain instead of commission dollars, shares of restaurant
proprietor Oversea Enterprise Bhd surged 20% or 2.5 sen to 15 sen from
12.5 sen as of 12.22pm today (Friday), with 9.95 million shares done.
SJ Securities senior remisier Goh Kay Chong advised investors to be
cautious when doing trading by proprietary traders.

"Oversea is in the restaurant business, making over RM1 million in profit
for the last two years. While it is a famous restaurant chain, this may
just be a concept play as the players feel that restaurant business might
be doing well during the festive season," he said in an email sent to

The ACE market-listed company made RM1.085 million in net profit for
its financial year ended Dec 31, 2011 (FY2011). On the previous financial
year (FY2010), it chalked up a net loss of RM324 thousand.
Oversea's shares averaged at 12.7 sen in the past 52 weeks, reaching
its high of 17 sen on March 27. On this date last year, it attained its 52-
week low share price of 11.5 sen.

"This stock hardly traded any volume before Dec 19. They were some
acculumation at 12 sen on Dec 19 and Dec 20. Suddenly, the volume
just came in this morning and the price went up to as high as 16.5 sen,
a gain of 37.5% just within three market days," said Goh.

He also surmised that Oversea may just be played up by the 50-odd
licensed proprietary traders in town. He said these traders play for direct
gains instead of commission dollars.

"Once they made some money, they might just turn to other stocks," he

Goh also said it might not be easy to get out of the stocks once after the
price had surged.

"It's fun to make money. But it'll be frustrating when you start to lose
them. Be extra careful."

KUALA LUMPUR (Dec 20): XOX Bhd chief executive officer Ng Kok Heng
has denied a news report that Tan Sri Syed Mokhtar Al-Bukhary may be taking over the loss-making mobile virtual network operator.

A local newspaper this morning said that the ACE Market-listed XOX
may be the target of a takeover by Syed Mokhtar.

"I have no knowledge of this. We have not been approached," said Ng,
when responding to a question by whether XOX
was being taken over.

"But of course if they approach us, we will look into it. We owe that to
the company and its shareholders to do what's best for them.
"We are very happy to hear this news and we hope it is true, but for now they are just rumours," he said.

Ng is the largest shareholder of XOX, with 15.72% stake in the company.
According to senior remisier at SJ Securities Goh Kay Chong, the takeover, if materialises, will be good for XOX.

"The takeover would be a good thing [for XOX] as there will be new funds and new ideas coming into the company," Goh said, adding that the influential businessman may be able to take XOX far.
XOX is seen as an interesting proposition to Syed Mokhtar's group because of its involvement in the telco business and its current strategic partnership with Celcom (M) Bhd.

XOX currently has a commercial agreement with Celcom to ride its mobile network infrastructure and also exclusively uses the 010 mobile number prefix which had been used by Celcom previously.
It has been reported that Syed Mokhtar's Puncak Semangat TECHNOLOGY [] Sdn Bhd may be riding Celcom's network to run its 4G service now that it has been awarded the 2600MHz spectrum by the Malaysian Communications and Multimedia Commission (MCMC).

At 11.26am today, XOX shares rose 2 sen or 12.5% to 18 sen on volumes of 7.93 million shares.

KUALA LUMPUR (Dec 19): XOX Bhd shares fell as much as 1.5 sen or
9.68% to 14 sen this morning as investors began to take profit after
recent surge in the stock price.

At 12.30pm, shares of loss-making mobile virtual network operator lost
0.5 sen or 3.23% to 15 sen on trades of 12.64 million shares.

The fall today follows two days of massive surges with highs of 30 sen on
Monday and 22.5 sen on Tuesday.

"As the volume was high on Dec 17 (Monday), it is expected that this
stock can only rebound after the force-selling on Dec 21, 2012," senior
remisier Goh Kay Chong of SJ Securities told

According to Goh, investors had begun taking profit on Monday, following
a steady rebound since Dec 3.

"The stock had slipped to a historical low of 10.5 sen on Nov 30 and the
investors or speculators thought that it had to stage a rebound then.

"Therefore, they started to buy since Dec 3 and the stock slowly and
steadily moved up within 11 market days to the high of 30 sen (Dec 17)
before it retraced to 20 sen [at Dec 17 close], meaning it has gone up
185.71% within a short span of time," Goh explained.

XOX was in the news recently when it announced plans to turn around
the company via its Voopee mobile application.

The Voopee application, which is slated to launch by next month, allows
smartphone users to make calls and send SMS at lower rates as it runs
on Internet data.

However, subscribers need to pay a commitment fee to continue using
the service. For this reason, Goh said there is cause for the stock to
move upward.

"Investors perceived that this service might improve the company’s
financial position therefore they jumped in to buy the stock earlier," he

The ACE Market-listed XOX has been bleeding financially since its initial public offering (IPO) on June 10, 2011. Between then and the financial quarter ended Sep 30 this year, the group lost RM54.84 million.

In the financial quarter ended Sept 30, 2012, the group recorded a net loss of RM1.53 million on the back of RM9.19 million in revenue, versus a net loss of RM6.54 million for and RM8.98 in revenue for the year.

Trading opportunities

To be successful in trading the stock market, one has to monitor the market constantly and keep looking for trading opportunities.

There are eight stocks jumped into my screen which matched my Meta Stock program screening criteria. Meta Stock is an award winning investment software in America for many years and earned good reputation.

 The stocks selected are 1. Zelan, 2. HO WAH GENTING BHD(HWGB), 3. Dutaland, 4.Green Packet, 5.Tiger, 6. IJMLand, 7. Borneo Oil, 8.Coastal contract.

Zalan closed at RM 0.25 last Friday. The low on that day was 0.245. It has come down from the high of RM 0.55 on Feb 14, 2012.  On Monday, it closed at RM 0.245.

RM 0.245 is close to the low of RM 0.235 achieved on Sep 26, 2011.
If history were to repeat itself, Zelan will eventually move back to challenge the high of RM 0.55 achieved on Feb 14, 2012.

Before, it can move that far, it has to overcome the resistance at RM 0.295, RM 0.355, RM 0.425, and then RM 0.55.

14 day RSI recorded at 25.27 last Friday which is a oversold position.
Zelan’s wholly-owned unit Zelan CONSTRUCTION Sdn Bhd has been awarded a RM 179.32 million contract for the construction of whart structures at Pelabuhan Tanjung Pelepas in Johor by MMC CORPORATION BHD’s unit.

Zelan’s price was slowly slipping when it announced that its Meena Plaza project in Abu Dhabi ran into trouble after project owner Meena Holdings LLC’s decided to end the contract.

Its unit Zelan Holdings (M) Sdn Bhd’s Abu Dhabi branch received a letter dated Nov 21, 2012 from Meena Holdings LLC which gave a 14-day notice to terminate the contract and to liquidate the performance bond.

Since one of the basic principles of technical analysis said that history will repeat itself, therefore, it is possible that the sock might rebound to 0.375or 0.385 any moment from now.
