That was in Nov 2016 and his timing has proved pretty good. 


Since then, he has made a number of big purchases (see table) and, somewhat surprisingly, he did it again recently.

He bought 1,474,900 shares at 68.5 cents, or nearly 2X as high as when he bought back in Nov 2016.

Share price:
$0.69

Target: 
$1.00

His purchase came two trading days after Food Empire said on 19 Jan that it expected to record a pre-tax loss for 4Q2017, mainly due to its exposure of around USD10 million to its associated Korean company, Caffe Bene.

For the full year results, Food Empire expects to report a profit.

RHB Research, in a 19 Jan 2018 report, has a target price of $1.00 for the stock.
