confused 150NOBLE GROUP: Has appointed PriceWaterhouse Coopers to conduct an assurance review of its marked-to-market models, valuations, and governance framework.

The outcome of the report may or may not cause provisions to be made to the coming financial results. Share price would react, positively or negatively, based on the outcome.

Current share price (67 cents) is at the low, and how much lower can it goes is anybody's guess. If 4 cents dividend is maintained, the dividend yield is close to 6%. Is it time to invest for long term, or time to punt for short term?

COSCO: Profit warning issued, that Q2 2015 results will show a loss. The reasons given that he expected net loss is mainly attributable to

(i) the low crude oil prices over recent months which has had an adverse impact on the global offshore marine industry,
(ii) the languid dry bulk shipping market which has brought great pressures to the Company’s dry bulk fleet operations and
(iii) the slump in the shipbuilding market which has negatively impacted the Company’s shipyards.

Technically, this share will move toward the next support at 0.39 if the quantum of the loss is substantial.

It would be wiser to wait and see what the highlights of the PwC report are, especially on whether more provisions are needed on top of those that were recently made and announced. Although based on ROI the counter may look appetizing for a mid to long term investment, the critical area that both Muddy Waters and Iceberg Research have highlighted (regarding the "credibility" of the group's valuation model in its MTM exercise) is now the subject of PwC's review, and this should take overriding importance before any investment decision is made, if due diligence is anything to go by. It must be borne in mind that this review by an independent party was not called by the management out of the blue and on its own accord, but rather, after much pressure by the Monetary Authority of Singapore.
