TheEdge2.16The Edge Singapore weekly is sold at $5 per copy.A sub-head in an article in the current weekly edition of The Edge Singapore said: "Cheap stock, high yield".

The stock referred to is XMH Holdings, whose share price has fallen about 20% since mid-Dec 2015 when it released its 1HFY16 results.

XMH reported a net profit gain of 69.3% to S$3.57 million -- an impressive turnaround but that didn't prevent the stock price from slipping in Jan when bears swarmed all over the market.

The stock has fallen from 13.2 cents in mid-Dec to 10.5 cents last week. It's trading at a PE of just 5.3X based on RHB Research's profit forecast of $8.9 million in the current financial year (earnings per share: 2 cents).

XMH, aside from being described as 'cheap' by The Edge, has a trailing dividend yield of 7.6%, as pointed out by the article.

Given the expected increase in profit in the current FY, it is not unlikely that XMH will at least match its previous FY's dividend.

(The article didn't mention that XMH's net asset value is 14.21 cents a share, quite a bit higher than the stock price of 10.5 cents.)
