terencewong10.14Terence Wong (photo) was head of research at RHB Research when he left and set up Azure Capital in Aug 2016.  At a media event last Friday, he said: "I'm in the process of accumulating 10 stocks and am eyeballing another dozen companies."

He revealed that the largest positions of the Azure All-Star fund ($100 m of assets under management) include large-cap Global Logistic Properties and small-caps Avi-Tech Electronics, Fu Yu Corporation, and KSH Holdings.

Terence said
while waiting for a potential takeover offer, he is happy to collect dividends from Fu Yu, a plastic injection moulder. The company has paid a total of 0.5 cents as interim dividends and has proposed a 1-c final dividend for FY2016.

Terence thinks the counter has another 15 to 20 per cent to go from current levels.

Avi-Tech Electronics, a "burn-in" testing services provider, can rally a little bit more than that (15-20%), he said.

For more on the company, which is expected to see steady growth from the increasing use of electronics in cars and the advent of driverless vehicles, see: 

From the beaten-down oil & gas industry, Terence has found a stock to own -- PEC, which provides engineering, construction and maintenance services for oil and gas players. It is run efficiently, and order enquiries have been strong, Mr Wong said.

Notably, it had a large net cash balance of $148 million as at end-Dec 2016, compared to its market cap  of $181 million based on a recent stock price of 71 cents. 

"I would say 60 to 70 per cent of the market is made up of privatisation plays, turnaround plays and ignored, unloved stocks."

CEO, Azure Capital

From another beleagured industry, there is boutique property developer Sing Holdings which Terence pointed out trades at under 0.6 times book value.

It has proposed a 1-c final dividend and 0.375-c special dividend for FY2016. The stock recently traded at 36 cents.

He also highlighted Spackman Entertainment Group, a loss-making movie production house which he thinks will turn profitable in 1Q17.
