Ya..Harrisons is a very good fundamental stock.
It is one of the oldest, largest and most established sales, marketing, warehousing, distribution and services organisation in Malaysia, particularly in East Malaysia where Harrisons has been in business for 91 years and has developed a very good distribution network that ranks amongst the best in the region.

Most of the their customers are the main player in malaysia such as F&N, NESTLE, CARSBEG and etc.

Does anyone here know who is thier competitor? Thanks for sharing your opinion here

I am holding the stock too. Heard from a reliable source the top management in the branch (Labuan) is heavily involved in personal businesses relating to smuggling of beers. Most have their own private companies handling these business. Something that the top brass should seriously look into the future health of the company.

Hope this is the reason behind, so that HARISON business & reputation are not badly hurt by this event. What a good company and what an unexpected event? rant

I am thinking of buying this stock. At 3.60. if the dividend is 80cts per per year, it should be in great demand.

Any latest news on the court case? notworthy
04 Sep 2012, 10:17 AM

The latest I found was only their reply to Custom explaining why they shouldn't be liable to pay the sum demanded by Custom under MATERIAL LITIGATION on 6th June 2012, that's all. No further development so far. Any other people has any other news?notworthy
19 Sep 2012, 02:51 PM
This counter has been very illiquid lately. Only open half day most of the time
~few weeks already. The lastest three business days, while the market is up trending, tutup kedai terus........rant Anybody knows why?star Please don't tell me they will open up only when the market is crashing down huh!! or they are waiting for the market crash then they open!!!doh
19 Sep 2012, 02:56 PM

Material litigation (Custom demand) news has finally released today. The case would probably be brought to court later on, please read at
20 Sep 2012, 03:34 PM

It is given 14 days to settle the RM91mil, otherwise Kastam will bring this case to court. doh
21 Sep 2012, 09:10 AM
What I feared previously has already been proven true now. dohThis counter has purposely waited to throw us out. It opened only when the market was down trended. Yesterday, it threw many of us away~down by -4.088% and this morning, no need for the market to go down, it has its own problem, down again by -2.95%.cry So, brothers, if you own any of its share, throw them all away before too late!! Anyway, u can also see its technical chart, it is on its way down now. So be careful...shutup
21 Sep 2012, 09:33 AM
My company had a similar unfortunate problem with the Custom Department. My experience with them is that they will blacklist all the Directors. It is almost 100% effective in collecting on their claim. No need for them to sue for payment in court. Most probably all their Directors are blacklisted by now. The company should report such material event to the BursaMalaysia. All Directors cannot leave or enter Malaysia now and this would have a material effect on their business.
