STI Back To School


It’s the usual rant, according to some pundits it’s a bear market, well then Divisoria is always a bear market, agree?Does it make sense when you buy at a higher price and sell at a lower price? Why don’t we make some sense?

STI, being a holding company, derives its revenues from dividends declared by its subsidiaries. The Company also derives income from business advisory services it provides to the subsidiaries. STI ESG has a total of 78 schools nationwide and is comprised of 66 STI-branded colleges and 12 STI-branded education centers. Of these, STI ESG owns 32 college campuses and four education centers, while franchisees operate 34 college campuses and four education centers. STI ESG also operates two schools that are not branded as STI schools: iACADEMY, which specializes in course offerings in animation and multimedia and digital arts; and De Los Santos STI College, a health science and nursing school.

Fundamentally, STI seems to be doing good, but no it’s not, just showing you the obligatory rundown of meaningless data as far as speculative trading is concerned.

Volume 152,340,000 Average Price 0.360 Book Value
52-Week High 0.74 52-Week Low 0.380 P/BV Ratio

If possible, 0.360 or lower is an ideal entry for the next market opening. A staggering 152,340,000 shares out of 3,632,161,776 has changed hands from the last trading day, looks like some serious chaps are in the know and the technical indicators are  somehow starting to show some sign that things are about to change such as the trend direction. Currently the SMA(20) is over EMA(13) which sets the stage for the SWAG golden cross, normally a signal for technical buy, Parabolic SAR is still bearish and MFI going further less than 20% oversold, which is a good opportunity to enter.



Recommendation: BUY/ACCUMULATE

Holding Period: 90 trading days, apply your cut loss strategy if plan don’t work out.
