chart1.15DMX (15.9 cents) has a market cap of S$186 million and a dividend yield of 1.88%. Chart: BloombergDMX TECHNOLOGIES' recent traded price of 15.9 cents was at a sharp 66% discount to its net asset value of 46.4 cents a share as at end-Sept 2014.

» A major business segment (digital media) has grown while another segment (infocomm technologies, or ICT) declined.

» Gross margin is decent but has moderated to 21.6% for 9M2014 from 23.5% a year earlier.

» Total operating expense fell 20.1% y-o-y to US$30.5 million. The Group has streamlined its headcount and resources over the last three quarters.

» In its 3Q2014 results announcement, DMX said it was confident of achieving the same level of profitability as FY2013 when it reported US$22.8 million in net profit attributable to shareholders.

This implies a strong profit in 4Q2014 to top up the US$9.2 million (-27.7% y-o-y) achieved in 9M2014.

That would be a repeat of 4Q2013 when it achieved US$10.1 million in net profit attributable to shareholders. 

Indeed, a strong 4Q has been experienced in the last few years due to increased demand from clients who typically ramped up orders towards year-end.

If DMX's 2014 profit was at the same level as 2013, the PE of the stock would be about 6.2X.

And if it maintains the 0.3 cent a share final dividend it has paid out in the each of the past three financial years, the yield would be 1.88%.

DMX is expected to report its full-year results in late February.
