The share price of UMS is trading at $0.590 (as of 28 May 2019). The 52-week L/H is at $0.540/$0.935. Pretty close to its 52W low.
4.5 cents per share.
The revenue and profit growth from 2016 to 2017 is good, but in 2017 to 2018, revenue and profit faced a decline. But can we look at their margins here. It’s really good.
Their balance sheet is also strong. Low total debt in general. Mostly short-term debt.
Increase in investing and financing activities. Increase in dividends paid.
ROA and ROE are pretty good.
Low P/E ratio. Cheap now? But Beta is really high though.
The near-term outlook continues to be challenging due to much uncertainty in customers’ order flows amid the ongoing China-US trade tensions which affected demand from semiconductor chipmakers.
The longer-term outlook however, is good. SEMI, the global industry association for the electronics manufacturing supply chain reported that worldwide sales projected to dip 4% in 2019, but will bounce back to 20.7% in 2020.
Financials of UMS are good. Profit margin is very high. Low P/E ratio, but the beta is very high at 1.40, subject to high volatility. At the share price of $0.59, looking at the current trend, there is a concern that share price may continue going down further so need to look out first.
