Initial buy prices for stocks have been adjusted for corporate actions such as bonus issues. Best World, notably, has had a bonus issue and a stock split.

For simplicity, the average gain of 220.5% is based on each stock's current price (or realised price) and initial entry price, and dividends received, if any.

That is, each stock had equal weightage in the portfolio and the stock's holding period was not a factor in calculating the gain/loss. 

The striking thing is not just the sizzling gains that AEM, Best World and China Sunsine have chalked up but the continued strong prospects that they seem to have.

And their valuations appear not to have fully priced in the earnings growth that analysts are projecting!

Cautionary note: The Nasi Lemak portfolio reflects the diverse investment interests and perspectives of several investors, each of whom has other stocks not revealed in this article. The point is, these investors' risk profiles and investment objectives are not fully known and may differ from yours.
