At the verge of a bankruptcy, if the news travels faster, stock price may decline in a day or two even. Your hopes will be to sell your lot to the next sucker and wash your hands off or wait till a share goes to 0.10 and no buyers.

Look at what happened to SEYB shares once the Golden key case was exposed. I think it went down to 2-5 range (not highly sure) and ppl bought it. Now even at the current price ppl will be happy.

I think, if PCH goes to wind up, there'll be investors to anchor the company. It will take few years to make the public perceptions to clear but if I have money, I'd look at the inventories and its quality and bargain a considerable price to buy it. Then strive my best to up lift its image in the next six months. In the process I'll have to tame the already corrupted sales men or fire if they're damn adamant and hire a new crowd to make ppl believe the PCH after sales service has improved.

@ smallville,

Very smart thinking.

Eg. Ascot Mills, Mt lavinea. ( ACSO)

The production ceased and troubles started. Loan interests, Salaries , other debt , payables increased year by year. If asset value was 500million debt reached like 750. Share price dropped to 5/-.
Someone bought the big lot @ 5-8/- ( Budu mahesh story....?)

The new owner revalued the company specially the 8 Acre land in Galkissa.
New asset value became many thousand million.
NAVPS increased to 80/-

By the way, for PCH ,
Apart from other assets elsewhere, they own nothing in Unity Plaza.
They had over 10 rented places in Unity Plaza ( different names ) .
UP is the property of On-ally Holding PLC. (ONAL) Main shareholder of ONAL is UDA (47%)

PCH has to pay approx 20 million per year as the rent to ONAL. They have re-arranged one place to sell their garments. ( Unwise decision - location wise )
Now they are vacating another place. Onally/UDA will tender it .

The talk in around Unity is not that good. May be worst that the reports indicate.

I do not want to add any more to this topic .

No.

I was working in the Govt. when they started this hand-carry business.
Somehow, I think I was one of the early guys who assembled a computer in SL.
Due to my self gained knowledge in the subject they put me to TECs. (Technical Evaluation Committees) .

In around 1998 I visited Sim Lim. - First and last.

Actually in Singapore I found a nice motherboard with all in-build. Sound, VGA and even the Processor. ( Those days they sold everything separately in Sri Lanka)

I brought some here and they worked superbly even in dry zone area for years. Bangladeshi people bought it heavily to make cheaper CPUs.

With that MB, Total cost of a CPU was 16,000/- while normal CPU was around 25,000. ( without the monitor)

Later I learnt the Unity Plaza gang blocked it coming and becoming popular in Sri Lanka to maintain their high profit margins.

Thanks Chinwi posting such a long & nice review of the PC industry . I too was engaged in this business some time but never had much information . You seems to be highly knowledgeable about the industry.

Actually when the PCH initially came to the market most of guys in the industry was wondering that anyone would buy this kind of company as we were aware about the business practice of PCH.

But many people at that time following the rally , so most jumped in to this . And after that they used to spread some false news , one time there was a news that they were going to deploys a servers for google . This type of news could fooled a person who does not have much knowledge in the industry .

But time proved you cant fooled people for a long .

This is why investing is more difficult than trading.To be a good successfull invester you have to have the background knowledge of the company,of the relavent sector,of the main charactors of the company etc etc.....It can not take the decision by just looking at annual reports or financial statements.

Global PC quarterly sales plummet, sharpest drop on record

REUTERS: Personal computer sales plunged 14% in the first three months of the year, the biggest decline in two decades of keeping records, as tablets continue to gain in popularity and buyers appear to be avoiding Microsoft Corp’s new Windows 8 system, according to a leading tech tracking firm.

The huge drop over a year ago, the steepest since International Data Corp started publishing sales numbers in 1994, marks a new milestone in the apparent decline of the age of the PC as computing goes mobile via tablets and smartphones.
Total worldwide PC sales fell 14% to 76.3 million units in the first quarter, IDC said on Wednesday, exceeding its forecast of a 7.7% drop. It was the fourth consecutive quarter of year-on-year declines.
That marked the lowest level since the middle of 2009, according to competing data tracker Gartner Inc, which published its own figures showing an 11% decline on the same day.
Both firms blamed the sales drop on fading sales of netbooks, the small laptops that have been rendered obsolete by tablets, and more consumer spending going toward smartphones.
“Consumers are migrating content consumption from PCs to other connected devices, such as tablets and smartphones,” said Mikako Kitagawa, an analyst at Gartner. “Even emerging markets, where PC penetration is low, are not expected to be a strong growth area for PC vendors.”
Microsoft’s new Windows 8 actually deterred potential PC buyers, IDC said, as users felt they could not afford touch-screen models required to make the most of Windows 8, even though the system runs equally well on standard PCs and laptops.
“People think they have to have touch, and they go look at the price points for these touch machines, and they are above where they want to be and they say, ‘I guess I’ll wait,’” said Bob O’Donnell, an analyst at IDC.
O’Donnell said other users were simply uncomfortable with the new Windows system, which dispensed with the familiar start menu and uses colourful ‘tiles’ to represent applications.
New Microsoft operating systems usually boost PC sales, but the lukewarm reception for Windows 8 will likely mean an even greater drop in the market this year, said Jay Chou, senior research analyst with the IDC unit that tracks PC sales.
“Users are finding Windows 8 to offer a compromised experience that doesn’t excel either as a new mobile interface or in a classic desktop interface,” he said. “As a result, many users find a decline in the traditional PC experience without gaining much from new features like touch. The result is that many consumers are worried about upgrading to Windows 8, to say nothing of business users who are still just getting into Windows 7.”
Among manufacturers, Hewlett-Packard Co saw a 24% decline in sales in the quarter, but narrowly held on to its title of No. 1 global PC supplier, with 15.7% market share. Fast-growing rival Lenovo Group managed to keep sales flat and is now just behind HP with a 15.3% global share.
Dell Inc, roiled by plans to go private, along with rivals Acer Inc and Asustek, all saw double-digit declines in PC sales.
Apple Inc was not immune from the decline, as some sales of its own Macs appeared to be displaced by iPads. Its U.S. PC sales fell 7.5% in the quarter, but it held on to its spot as No. 3 U.S. PC manufacturer, behind HP and Dell.
