TRADING of shares in Rubberex Corp (M) Bhd (fundamental: 1.8/3, valuation: 0.6/3) triggered our momentum algorithm yesterday for the ninth time this year.

The company’s share price closed 4.85% or four sen higher at 86.5 sen. Some 10.42 million shares were traded, over seven times the counter’s 200-day average trading volume of 1.44 million shares.

The stake was sold to Hextar Global Bhd’s non-independent executive director Datuk Ong Choo Meng, who then transferred it to Erpstar Inc Sdn Bhd, which Rubberex said emerged as its new substantial shareholder on the same day.
