Veye’s Take

The contracts reflect Perenti’s ability to deliver value for its clients by performing quality work across the Group’s diverse Surface portfolio. Through their surface business, it continues to demonstrate their leading expertise and reputation in the sector. This has resulted in a number of contract extensions and expansions for their quality client base. The stock had started falling sharply following a security incident in early November. Now it appears to have formed a double bottom near its support area. It may start recovering now. The lost momentum may, however, come only above $1.58. The stock price of the company has grown more than 25% till now since Veye’s “Buy” recommendation at $1.165 in Dec’18. We give a “Hold” recommendation on “Perenti Global Limited” at the current price of $1.465
