DOMINANT (Fundamental: 1/3, Valuation: 1.8/3), a manufacturer and distributor of engineered wood mouldings and laminated wood panel products, first triggered our momentum alert on March 16 at RM1.28. 

The stock has since risen by 43% to close at a 5-year high of RM1.83 yesterday. 

Part of this could be due to its latest 4QFYMar2015 earnings results. For FY2015, revenue rose 14.6% to RM547.6 million, thanks to market share expansion and penetration into new markets. Excluding one-off items, normalised net profit increased 11% to RM18.2 million.
