BursaMarketPlace Overview

Profitability Growing EPS, DPS. Expected headwind (GST) in 2014.
Since 2012 facing intense competition by H&M and Uniqlo. Compounded by implementation of GST in 2014 and higher capital cost from opening 6 Padini Concept Store & 6 Brands Outlet (to open in 2016). DY @ 7.14% is solid.
*For profit analysis and comparison with competitors please refer to LC Chong's post.

Leverage Coverage of debt is healthy. DE ratio of not more than 0.5.
2012: 0.15, 2013: 0.10, 2014: 0.13
*PADINI (vs Bonia, AsiaBrands, Voir, TGL, Kamdar) is the least leveraged company. *Retained Cash Flow to Debt – 386.2%. 

Returns on Equity(ROCE) Not less than 10% using 3-yr average.
2012: 22.52%, 2013: 18.33%, 2014: 18.20%
Returns on Equity(ROE) Not less than 10% using 3-yr average.
2012: 30.64%, 2013: 24.00%, 2014: 23.93%
*PADINI (vs Bonia, AsiaBrands, Voir, TGL, Kamdar) is the champion in generating profits with the highest efficiency.

Valuation : Lower than 5-yr average mid range PE.
Current PE: 11.40, Historical 5-Yr PE Avg: 12.19, Fwd PE Growth: 2.05. The current share price has breached below FY 2016 PE 12.50 target price of RM 1.50. This would seem to suggest that its valuation is low at this price level.

*For an in depth "Fundamental Analysis" I highly recommend LC Chong's post : PADINI – Fundamental Analysis (21 Aug 2015) Also worth mentioning is Kenanga Research's brief report : RESULT NOTES - PADINI HOLDINGS BERHAD - 19 AUGUST 2015

In valuation terms, it look quite attractive. Also the dividend yield of 7.2% at current price is a steal (which what attracted me in the first place) and would help offset further small dips in the price over the short term.

Recent rout in KLSE has not impacted PADINI "yet" - has the price really bottomed out? Effects of the GST (1/4/15) on the Malaysia Consumer Confidence Index (see below) has shown no signs of recovering. Adjustment period of GST is usually one year based on the experience of other countries. Budget 2016 will be tabled in October may hold unexpected surprise. Will monitor PADINI for now and buy slowly later using cost averaging method.
