Several changes to IC TOP stocks

There are several changes to the TOP stocks, following an eventful week of trading on the Jamaican Stock Exchange, with the main market posting records on all five days and closing at record highs, on four of them.
Former TOP 10 Junior Market listing, Derrimon Trading ordinary share, traded at an all-time high of $23 during the week, while former TOP 10 main market listings also hit new highs during the week, these are Jamaica Broilers trading briefly at a record high of $33, PanJam Investment at $58.99 and Pulse Investments trading up to $3.50 and current TOP 10 listing, CAC2000 hits a new record high of $10.
The TOP 10 listings at the end of the week, have a number of changes. Caribbean Producers returns with after the price slipped back to $5.30 from $5.50 and Caribbean Cream that was shunned by investors based on poor 2018 full year results, jumped 29 percent to $6.25 following the release of the first quarter results, with profit rising 59 percent. Medical Disposables renters the TOP 10 as well as Elite Diagnostic, replacing AMG Packaging and Caribbean Flavours both with earnings downgrade. Proven Investments US dollar listed stock is now in the TOP 10 with the price closing down to 18 US cents during the week and Victoria Mutual Investments return to the list, replacing Salada Foods and Grace Kennedy that rose from $52 to $54.
The PE ratio for Junior Market Top stocks averages 6.7 compared to an average PE for the overall market of 11.4, based on 2018 estimated earnings and the main market PE stands at 7.8 for the top stocks, compared to a market average of 13, this is a good indication of the level of undervaluation of these stocks.
The sharp movement in the prices of some main market stocks this past week, encouraged by minimal supplies, is a warning sign of a tsunami that is on the way for the market. Late comers to buying stocks who try to join the party will find get stocks but at a much higher prices than weeks ago.
The TOP 10 stocks now trade at an average discount of 41 percent to the average for the Junior Market Top stocks but it’s a third of what the average PE for the year is likely to be of 20 times earnings and main market stocks traded at a discount of 40 percent to the market.
