Ernest’s market outlook (14 Oct 16)

GKE Corp – A possible turnaround story unfolds (17 Jun 16)

On 16 Oct 2015, after seeing GKE Corp garnering significant media attention upon entering into a sales and leaseback agreement with Viva Industrial Trust for GKE’s existing headquarters cum warehouse property located at 30 Pioneer Road, I wrote a write-up on GKE.

I am unlikely to exceed 50% invested in the next two weeks, unless I spot some extremely attractive opportunities as I remain cautious on the general market. Read on to […]

Innovalue chart as of 3 Jun 16

Innovalues’ potential bullish break in the making? (3 Jun 16)

On 17 May 2016, I wrote that Innovalues’ profit taking may be over soon (see here) and a break above $0.925 – 0.935 on a sustained basis should negate the bearish tinge in its chart. It was coincidental that Innovalues surged 6.5% or $0.060 to close $0.985 on the following day (18 May 2016) on strong volumes and has not traded below $0.925 since then. What’s next for Innovalues? Read on for more.   Chart analysis After hitting an intraday high of $1.015 on 23 May 2016, Innovalues has been consolidating its gain. Based on Chart 1 below, it seems […]
