Golden Agri - An Interesting Play

"No Fear, No Greed, High Emotion equals low IQ"..."No Fear, No Greed, High Emotion equals low IQ"...we have been chanting this in unison for the past 3 years. This has been a daily routine for us . 100 times before we sleep. 100 times after we wake up.But we digress usual..So whats been in our radar lately?Golden Agri!

Golden Agri has been hogging the top spot in volume trade lately. According to Reuters, it's director, Raphael B. Concepcion, recently mentioned that they are looking at acquisitions now. What an interesting it a good investment? Let us take a look at some hard facts, shall we?

Based on Thomson Reuters, the net tangible value of Golden Agri is way higher , more than twice, its closing price. Compared to its competitors, it does seem cheap! Yes, it does look damn cheap. But let's not jump to conclusions, shall we? Let's look at one of the most important data (in our opinion). Its Free Cash Flow.

Golden Agri(Below)


As we can see, Golden Agri has been enjoying a rather consistent history of free cash flow since 2003 except for that blip in 2006. Indofood Agri does not have a long history of data and Wilmar..oh my...seem to have a rather consistent history of negative free cash flow.

Hmm...Golden Agri just sounds too good to be true!It seems there can only be 2 outcomes, for Wilmar and Indo Agri to go down in price or for Golden Agri to go up in price..which do you think? We just can't wait for 12 November 2008 for the financial statement!
