SMETRIC - EPF IS INSIDE THIS TECH STOCK !!!

Hello to all readers out there. Recently, a lot of stocks were oversold due to political uncertainty in our country. This has surfaced many opportunities for investors especially in tech sector.

Having said the above, the stock which I'd like to talk about today is SECUREMETRIC BERHAD (SMETRIC - Stock Code 0203, ACE Market, Technology - Software)

 

BASIC INFORMATION ABOUT SMETRIC

SMETRIC was founded in 2007 and listed on BSKL in 2018, with core business in:

i) Technology - Software Solutions, IT Security, Hardware Security

Market Capitalization : RM 61.64 million (as at writing)

Shares Float : 536.03 million

Website : https://www.securemetric.com/

 

1. EPF IS A SHAREHOLDER INSIDE THIS STOCK !!!

Refer below latest shareholding list as of latest Annual Report. 

As we can note, there are a few notable funds inside, the biggest one being EPF with a shareholding of 17 million shares (3.5%).

Another 3 more funds circled are Dana Makmur Pheim, Pheim Asean Equity Fund, Pheim Emerging Companies Balanced Fund.

Therefore, EPF as a shareholder implies a confidence in the long term prospect of the company.

Also, we note that the top 30 shareholders hold 80% of the float shares. This means that there are about 20% floating shares in the market, should the top 20 shareholders be long term investors.

This allows for a better movement upwards, with less resistance in the path.

 

2. REPORTED PROFITABLE QR DURING COVID19 LOCKDOWN, AND

UPBEAT PROSPECTS IN DIGITAL SECURITY SERVICES

Below is the latest QR summary for SMETRIC. The company managed to record a profitable quarter in Q2 despite the lockdowns during COVID19. This means that the company services are highly in demand even though during economic downturn.

Also, below newspaper coverage by The Star, which highlighted that SMETRIC returned to profitable in second quarter. 

The company remains upbeat on its prospect for digital security solutions, electronic identification products & related services.

The second quarter revenue increase is mainly contributed by growth in Public Key Infrastructure & Centagate products.

A few observations:

i. Expiry is in January 2023, which means ample time for those looking to hold the warrant for capital appreciation
