"Noble Group will be worth $7.00 a share."

Friday, November 24, 2017

Reader says...
I followed the call of a famous trader in Singapore and bought Noble in May.

He drew a chart and said it will go up to $7.00.

I am still holding but the price keeps falling. I put in a lot of money. I don't know what to do now.

Should I cut loss?

AK says...
When was the last time I did a TA on Noble Group?

See the blog: HERE.

I always say that TA is about probability and not certainty.

It is too dangerous for me to suggest if you should hold, cut or add.

However, I would suggest that you pick up TA if you want to be a trader.

See recommended books for TA: HERE.

Regular readers know that I used to do quite a bit of trading and I said as much in this year's "Evening with AK and friends".

See the blog: HERE.

If you want to start a zhi char store, make sure you know how to handle a wok.

If you don't know how and pay a shi fu to do it, you are at his mercy.

So, if you want to trade stocks, make sure you know how to read charts. :)

Noble Group plummets as company transfers stock to ex-staff

[SINGAPORE] The selloff in Noble Group Ltd deepened after the embattled commodities trader transferred more than 14 million shares to employees who are leaving the company as it disposes of North American energy assets in a drawn-out bid to survive.

The shares plunged as much as 8.7 per cent to 16.9 Singapore cents, the lowest since 1999, before trading at 17 Singapore cents by 1:12pm.

Hi Laurence,

Thanks for sharing this.

I guess this explains the reader's anxiety.

Hi AK,

What's your opinion on AIMS AMP's latest private placement move? Thanks.

AK71 said...

Hi DW,

I shared this exchange with a reader in the comments section of a blog on AA REIT recently:
AIMS AMP Capital Industrial REIT and free money for AK.

Reader says...
What repercussions will it have on existing holders of AAReit based on their new announcement on more shares at 1.34-1.35?

AK says...
Logically, DPU should decline a little.
But if they are able to increase income, then, no difference.

Dividend Warrior said...

Thanks AK. The price still seemed stable after XD. The rental from the newly-completed Beyonics property should help the DPU next year. Cheers!

Hi DW,

AA REIT is the largest investment in my portfolio and one of my longest.

I hope I know it as well as I think I do. :)

Fact that even Noble’s Founder and largest shareholder has resigned as its Chairman and subsequently cut his holdings in the open market from 18.07% to 17.94% at 10 cents /share, it clearly signals that all is unwell at the company.

Noble’s key institutional shareholder Prudential Singapore sold 1 million shares at 7.2 cents and reduced their stake to 65.86 million shares or 4.96% of the company. By doing so, Prudential Singapore has gone below the 5% disclosure level and further share sales will no longer be required to be disclosed. We expect them to continue to sell their stake and be completely out of the stock. We maintain our “Sell/Avoid” recommendation on Noble Group.

Lim & Tan, 5 April 2018.

We maintain that the only viable option for existing equity holders of Noble would be to vote in favor of the current RSA as proposed by management. But, we do not recommend putting in new capital given the immediate 80% dilution post restructuring.
