A Bloody Day for Parkson
Yesterday was a bloody day for Parkson -- this is one of a very rare day I've not seen for a long time. The whole world just lost faith. The share price slided right from the opening bell. Big boys or small boys are the same, they literally throw out the baby together with the bathwater when the moment it hit around $ 4.66. Some of these guys must be super discipline to cut loss at 10% if they entered around $ 5.00. Loss of 8.4% in one day -- incredible!
I have been hunting for bad news, surprisingly there was none. One good news though, they acquired 9% interest in Xi'an Lucky King Parkson Plaza Co., Ltd. This must be a good news for earnings right? Never mind, if someone dump share again today, I'm going to spend all my money. I'm damn sure this is definitely due to irrationality and nothing else. Silly people.
If I want to be really safe, wait for Shanghai Index to hit 2000 selling for 15 times earning. The current level 2700 plus is around 20 times earning -- reasonable but not at rock bottom bargain yet. Hang Seng Index around 21,000 plus in my opinion already hit rock bottom. However, if Parkson Holding Berhad share jumping the gun, a cart runs way ahead of the horse, it is a worth while risk to take. It's all depend on one's risk tolerance.
