TRADING of shares in Toyo Ink Group Bhd (valuation: 1.2/3, fundamental: 1.25/3) triggered our momentum algorithm yesterday for the fourth time this year.

The stock closed nine sen or 9.52% lower at 85.5 sen yesterday, after 2.72 million shares were done, compared with its 200-day average trading volume of 2.71 million shares.

Yesterday, Toyo Ink, which announced an 85% slump in its second-quarter net profit, proposed the disposal of two parcels of vacant industrial land measuring 21,994 sq m in Mukim Kapar, Klang, Selangor for RM17.75 million. Proceeds from the proposed disposal would be allocated for working capital.
