• The Singapore-listed stock has corrected from around $2.00 in Aug 2020 to below 70 cents in recent weeks. Reason: the selling prices of its healthcare gloves have fallen from heights achieved on pandemic-fuelled buying by its customers.

• Interestingly, the upcoming dividend payout is likely to be outsized based on the outsized profit reported in the first 9 months of the year.

DBS Research report says:
"Expect bumper final dividend of 39 sen. Similar to last year, the group expects to pay a special dividend on the back of the super normal profits. Based on our projections and dividend payout ratio of 50% (same as FY20), DPS for FY21 works out to 49 sen (including interim DPS of 10 sen), implying an attractive final dividend of 39 sen or >16% yield*."
