Still considering. But 45 cents seem like a low. Holding onto some lousy bluechip like Capital Land. Hoping to make some quick buck from smaller caps.
It's puzzling why analysts are in luv with this stock. The earnings will triple from 50 m to 150 m this year. However, the PE will still be at quite high levels -- around 18X this year's forecast earnings (assuming a stock price of 45 cents). Still quite ex. IMHO
The National Development and Reform Commission (NDRC), China's main economic planning agency, recently announced that it has approved five railway construction projects with total investment pegged at 142.4 billion yuan (US$22.85 billion)
Funds for four of the projects will be sourced from loans borrowed by the China Railway Corporation, the Ministry of Transport and the provincial government where the railway is located, as well as from several banks including the World Bank and China Development Bank.
An analyst at China International Capital Corporation told Shanghai's China Business News that the government's urbanization drive will benefit from railways connecting cities with populations of at least 200,000 with high-speed rail networks for cities of over 500,000 people, which will ensure that the railway sector receives stable investment in the long term.
In addition, domestic demand for railway infrastructure and equipment has posted a better outlook and the export sector is also reviving gradually.
Still unsure about Midas.
Kevin Scully mentioned about contracts acquiring contracts back in dec 2013 but till now price stays low. 28 Feb announced good earnings but price didn't go up. Few days ago announced contracts acquired but no movement.
And in face Africa awarded huge contacts to two china railway companies and some new contracts may flow to Midas.
Maybe the current price already reflected the future price?
