Harvest (9342) - The fantastic counter

This is NOT another Stock Pick session but a sharing. It is better learn from a distance than to learn with your money with HARVEST.

Brief summary of what is happening....

  • 14.11.2011 - The share price moves to new high of RM2.14 from merely 8.0 sen (closing price on 11.10.2011) in 1 month. For few market days, it touched the "upper limit".
  • 15.11.2011 - Finally Bursa suspense this counter for 1 day and designate it as "Designated Securities"
  • 16.11.2011 - Opening first transaction already touched the "lower limit" at RM1.50
  • 17.11.2011 - Opening first transaction also touched the "lower limit" at RM1.05
  • Tomorrow 18.11.2011 - ???

You can see from below image, the selling pressure is so huge.

What is "Designated Securities"?

The trading of the securities will be declared as "Designated Securities" upon occurrence of a situation of excessive speculation as well as the existence of abnormal trading patterns. The decision to designate a securities also takes into account the interest of ensuring a fair and orderly market for the trading the affected securities.
With the designation, trading in the securities continues but will require payment upfront before buying and a free balance of securities before selling.
