Tanjong Plc is one of the 30 FBM KLCI stocks. It is independent power producer and Malaysian number forecasting operator (lottery). It is a good defensive stock because of its attractive 6.28% dividend yield (based on RM14.30 market price). With current fixed deposit rate of 2.5% per annual, Tanjong Plc is good to invest due to its good track of historical dividend payout.

Tanjong Plc performance since June 2009

I started to study the research done by OSK Research, Standard & Poor’s (S&P) Equity Research by Public Bank and Maybank Investment Bank. The 12-month target prices given by these research firms are about the same RM18.60, RM17.00 and RM17.60. I checked back the previous recommended target price. OSK Research gave a very aggressive price that cannot be reached. S&P is still okay to follow but failed to reach too. Why? It is all because of other factors like economy, politics. Therefore, we should only use it as guidance. Study and make your own decision.

What price should we sell? Nope. I don’t sell attractive dividend yield stock. We should keep it unless the company is not performing anymore. The question we should ask… What price should I buy? Buy at the discounted price during economy downturn. Normally, people stay away from stock market. But that’s the best time to buy these high dividend yield stocks actually.
