(As of first half of 2009, this figure was just above US 1,500 million.)

Investment Firm Analysis

JP Morgan said the group's interim sales up around 20% year-on-year despite economic uncertainties, representing the fastest growth in the past ten years; far beating both the market projections. This broker reiterated Buy on TECHRONIC IND at the target price $68.  However, Citi research released on 26 Oct 2018 cut its target price from $57 to $54.; owing to a slightly better than expected 3Q result of its competitor Stanley Black & Decker (SBD). Also Citi forecasted slowdown in demand growth in the US. 

 

Risk:

a) fluctuating local material cost and transportation cost from China to USA and Europe.

b) If Euro currency decreases too much, US sales will expose keen competition with other manufacturers in Europe.

c) Increasing European Union energy label requirements may affect the sales of Floor Care and Appliance Business.

d) If trade war deteriorates between China and US. that may not be offsetted by the benefits under RMB depreciation for the export company.

e) downturn of US consumer index

 

Technical Analysis:

It is suggested to accumulate the stock when the price is close to the lower level of Bollinger bands of around $39-$40. The medium target price is $44 of 50-day moving average. Cut loss level is set at $37.
