What the hell has happened to this healthcare product provider?

The meteoric rise of Medtecs share price (SGX: 546) on the back of an unprecedented health crisis created one of the amazing fairy-tales in Singapore stock market.

Buying into a hype always carry risks but I have to be honest with readers of SG Wealth Builder. When Medtecs share price (SGX: 546) was surging in 2020, I was actually contemplating to adopt a “hit-and-run” strategy for this counter.

Back then, the pandemic was still raging globally with no vaccine being developed. Demand for Medtecs’ products, mainly personal protective equipment (PPEs) skyrocketed as hospitals and public institutions stockpiled PPEs to fight COVID-19. Against that backdrop, it certainly seemed that the sky was the limit for Medtecs share price (SGX: 546).

Perhaps, investors’ confidence in Medtecs share price (SGX: 546) was shaken badly following three SGX queries in 2020 (18 September, 13 July and 24 February).
