The Oil & Gas sector has been hit since 2015 and even though there have been thoughts of market recovery, everyone knows it will not go back as it was. I myself am in the Oil & Gas industry and have been talking to several experienced industry personnels, even if 1 day oil prices spike up, it'll still be a temporary movement.
And as what Wallace said, they are capital intensive, have to spend a lot of money first, hope oil prices are good, and then that's where the business lies. As of now (and probably never), I will not invest in this industry despite if their balance sheets are perfect (3 years ago, almost all oil majors have beautiful balance sheets by the way).
This stock is a small cap stock with a declining share price.
It is in the Oil and Gas sector which is extremely cyclical and they don't seem to have any economic moat of any sort.
Furthermore, with the slight recovery in oil price since the 2016 lows, the share price remains depressed. I will pass and look for other Oil and Gas companies if I really wanted to invest in this sector.
Kim Heng Offshore is one of the stronger few in the O&M industry.
If you are betting that the oil and gas indsutry is in an upturn, this may be a company to ivnest in. Its balance sheet is not as heavily leveraged as its peers, so it may survivie through this downturn
