Veye’s Take

PWH's strong focus on working capital utilisation and with FY21capex expansion program largely completed in the current half places the company in a good position for anticipated growth and productivity benefits.  PWH with a market cap of$479.86m as of 22 Feb2021 is a good value stock based on its P/E ratio at 29.6x compared to the AU auto components industry average at 32.6x and a low debt to equity ratio of 6.4% and high ROE at 29.1%. The upside breakout in stock price was well supported by RSI and positive crossover in MACD. The stock is trading near the upper band of the Bollinger and expected to have more upside potential in the near term. The stock price of the company has grown 88% since Veye gave them a “Buy” recommendation at $2.75 on 11th Jun’18. Veye maintains a "Hold" “PWR Holdings Ltd” at the current price of $5.17
