BEST WORLD INTERNATIONAL has emerged as a top gainer on SGX in the past year (if  you exclude the 2,000% gain of ISR Capital which is under probe). 

At the beginning of 2016, Best World's stock price was 26.8c. At end-2016, it closed at $1.34, up a whopping 5 times. 

Its run is not over, according to Maybank and CIMB analysts. Their consensus target price is $2.185, translating into upside potential of 63%.

“We are targeting to be among China's top 20 direct sellers in 3 to 5 years and Taiwan's top 5 by 2017.”

- Huang Ban Chin
Executive Director and COO
Best World International


China is the world's second largest direct-selling market, worth US$35.5 billion in 2015 and growing at 19% per annum.

In November, the Group secured a direct selling licence for Hangzhou, the capital of Zhejiang and the most populous city in the province.

The acceptance of Best World products has been gaining momentum in China. Before receiving the licence, revenue contribution from China through its export-agent model had been surging: it doubled to S$42.0 million (up 216.9%) year-on-year for 9MFY2016. This represents 30.2% of Group revenue.

Management believes that the transition from an export-agent model to a direct-selling business model in China, as well as having overcome initial regulatory hurdles for direct selling licenses for other PRC cities, will be reflected in its bottom line by FY2018.

The tables below show the top 20 gainers and losers of 2016. Top gainers with a PE ratio of less than 15 times are highlighted.

The above total return data from Bloomberg includes capital adjustments and dividends over the year to 30 Dec 2016.

BT 2016 Gainers Losers optThe Business Times last Saturday published its version of top gainers some of whose figures are very incorrect.

The BT table (left) showed ISR Capital as the top gainer with 8,179% gain. But from 0.6 cent to 12.7 cents is actually about 2,000%. (The stock has been suspended since late Nov and is under a cloud ).

Eucon, to which BT ascribed a gain of about 430%, actually had a negative return of 7% (from 3 cents to 2.8 cents).

Did Blumont turn in a 512% gain? Nope, it was minus 33%. And Abundance International's gain was nowhere near as abundant as reported.
