  1. BJCHI stock has weakened during the past 2 months. Not a lot, but the trading range has been significant, hi 7.50 lo 6.50 baht. ( which is close to an all time low, since the IPO).
    Volume is low ( and insider family holds a huge chunk of the company. So that may explain it. No news of new contracts. Small amount of shorting at 6.60. I have been accumulating; am now in excess of what I am comfortable with. Anyone comments from fans of this company. ?
    Tia, Don.

    1. Same boat here, been accumulating at sub 7 until 6.5 last week. I was a seller at 7.5 but now accumulating again.

      The beauty of this company is that it has such little debt that if work is light they won’t have creditors breathing down their necks.

      Not sure if this has an effect, but one of their major customers Petrobras is really in the s**t.
