KSH, will it resume the uptrend after consolidation?

For the recent rally of STI since late March, one of the strong sectors that moved a lot is property sector which became a market leader. It is likely to remain strong for some time and may provide more opportunities to investors in near future. In the past a few days, STI hit the resistance at around 3280 and pull back, it may be an opportunity to buy on dips. However, to avoid the market to sell down further, it may be safer to consider strong stocks which have better potential to move up again if STI rebound or resume the uptrend. KSH is a good candidate that investors may look at. It has been dropping since late May 2012. After dropping for 9 over month, KSH started to turn up again. From weekly chart it can be seen that both moving averages and MACD histogram are indicating bullish signal already. The STI sell down on 25 and 28 May did not affect KSH a lot, it just had a mild pull back with volume shrunk, indicating that the support at around 0.5 is strong and the sellers are relatively weak. From the fundamental perspective, the recently financial statement released on 11 Feb report a surge of around 50% for both revenue and net profit, indicating that the company is not only stable but having a nice growth as well, which makes it a relatively safe investment. One may consider buy on dips during pull back and expect the stock may resume the uptrend and run some more after consolidation. It needs to be taken note that KSH may release next quarterly report in Mid of May, it may bring some volatility to short term traders and investors.
