What an explosive run for Wilmar share price! On the back of record crude palm oil prices (CPO), Wilmar share price soars to high heavens. Indeed, the return of the form of Wilmar share price is timely as investors await the release of the highly-anticipated full-year financial results, which will be released on 22 February 2021.
In 2020, Sembcorp Industries was the best performing Straits Times Index (STI) component. I had made a profit of $17,500 from that counter and rebalanced my portfolio by investing in Wilmar. On the basis of the raging form of Wilmar share price, I am confident that Wilmar will be the best performing STI component in 2021.
Question now is: will Willmar share price storm to $10? This is definitely not a crazy wild guess with no investment basis. Net profit for 9MFY2020 was already US$1.14 billion. If we factored in the US$2.01 billion proceeds received from Yihai Kerry Arowana (YKA) and the 4th quarter net profit, the total net profit could be US$3.5 billion, which translates to S$4.62 billion (after currency translation). Under such circumstances, the EPS will be $0.73. If Wilmar share price hit $10, the P/E will only be 13.7, which is really reasonable for a high growth stock.
Given that Wilmar share price is currently trading at $5.25, there is still window of opportunity for investors to enter before the valuation gap narrow. It seems that the big boys have also jumped on the bandwagon in recent weeks, giving Wilmar share price a strong boost as Wilmar share price smashed past the critical $5.00 mark in the first week of the year. For Wilmar share price to rally in such a short time, the big boys should have a hand in it.
Wilmar share price turned bullish as the counter was among the top 10 institution net buy list in December 2020. This indicates that fund houses are buying this stock, possibly in anticipation of the robust full-year financial results. In view of this, I think there is still time before Wilmar share price begins to peak.
The return of the big boys certainly gave Wilmar share price a vital boost. Prior to this, Wilmar share price had been in a wretched form, falling from a high of $4.90 in August 2020 to a low of $4.00 in October 2020. To rub salt into injury, Wilmar share price failed to gain much momentum even after the management bought back 44.97 million of shares as of 6 January 2021 and insider purchases by CEO Kuok Khoon Hong.
