3Q 2018 passive income (non-REITs): WILMAR.

Friday, September 28, 2018

Another business I increased exposure to in 3Q 2018 was Wilmar.

As its share price went under $3.00, I simply had to buy some.

At that price, I believe Wilmar was very undervalued and based simply on NAV per share, it was.

If the constant buying by insiders as the share price declined was anything to go by, I am in good company.

When the soft commodity cycle turns up again and it is just a matter of time when it does, Wilmar will be a major beneficiary.

Apart from this, I am also waiting for the listing of Wilmar's Chinese business in 2019 which would probably help to unlock some of Wilmar's true value which has gone unappreciated by Mr. Market.

Wilmar has become a more valuable company over the years on a per share basis but its share price has languished.

Still growing, it will become even more valuable in future and any further weakness in its share price is an opportunity to accumulate.

I believe that patient shareholders will be well rewarded with higher dividends in time to come when CAPEX finally tapers off.

Then, capital gains would logically follow.

Of course, I don't know when this is going to happen.

However, being paid while I wait makes patience more affordable.

Hi Laurence,

I am sure it has nothing to do with me. ;)

Hi AK71, I came across your Wilmar post from

In this post > "Apart from this, I am also waiting for the listing of Wilmar's Chinese business in 2019 which would probably help to unlock some of Wilmar's true value"

Upon searching for Wilmar, I read:

My Qn: Since according to thestar report > "Wilmar's China operations contributes to half of the group's revenue and a significant portion of the profits."
I appreciate that fundamentals are fundamentals but really would it be possible to venture how much of an effect would Wilmar listing (30% of its China entity < according to thestar report) in Shanghai Stock Exchange have on its stock price?

Thank you

Hi Ivan,

I cannot predict how Wilmar's share price will move.

Kuok Khoon Hong, Chairman an CEO of Wilmar International, acquired 1 million of its shares from the market on Nov 30. He spent $3.04 million.

RHB Securities upbeat. Key catalyst is the spin off of Wilmar's China business into a listed entity. RHB believes that proceeds from the IPO will be paid out as special dividend.
