Shares : Chart Pattern Part 1

Based on request, not all of us would know how to read financial statement or annual report from the Corporate, after all, it is full of figures and amount everywhere. For those who know how, it is a plus for them.  With the financial statement, though it would not translate the meaning of the shares prices up and down, it is certainly safer for investors to invest a profitable corporate much more worth then invest a net-loss making corporation.

For shares chart, there are general rules or guidelines to be determined to avoid mistake on "buying" the shares, and "trading" the shares. 'Buying' shares mostly mean, we keep for quite a long time especially shares with dividend. While 'trading' shares definitely buy and sell within months that usually would not be kept and not to be hold for years.

Let's have a look :

Digistar Corporation Bhd

Digistar Corporation Bhd, has tried their best to stay positive on the net profit before tax. The financial statement could be fluctuated up and down with uncertainty.

It does not look too well on the Trade Receivables made up a huge amount for the Non-Current Assets, while the Inventories made up of huge unsold completed properties. The corporate might have a lot of different type of nature of business, however, the net profit before tax does not seem to make such impact as finance cost is making the move.

Overall Performance : The corporate would give us the big shock either huge net profit or huge net loss in coming years. This corporate definitely require strict monitoring for a stressful environment.

VisDynamics Holdings Bhd, has maintain GP Margin above 40% while the net profit mostly eaten up by Admin expenses that ends up as net losses at the end. Although fast cash flow and current ratio is good to look at, however, this corporation has a lot of inventories value accumulated at Raw Materials and Work in progress level.

Performance : There would be some few issues, that related in each other from the production, inventories, and lastly the revenue sales almost depends on the production rather than fixed sales target. Not forgetting the net profit does not come easily.
