Trading of shares in M-Mode Bhd (fundamental: 2.5/3, valuation: 1.1/3) triggered our proprietary momentum algorithm for the first time yesterday since May 2017.

The stock closed 1.5 sen or 4% up at 39 sen yesterday, with a total of 3.82 million shares changing hands, sharply higher than its 200-day average trading volume of 934,371 shares.

M-Mode recently bagged a RM260.57 million construction contract to build a 25-storey mixed commercial development in Jalan Tun Fuad Stephens in

Kota Kinabalu, Sabah.

M-Mode was a provider of mobile content and data application services, producer and distributor of magazines and a media advertising agent before it ventured into the construction industry in October last year.
