YZJ - Review

I haven't talked about this company for a while already, so since I've just got it's annual report, I thought that I should take some time to review it and check up on its fundamentals.The share price has fallen by quite almost 25% since I first invested in it last year. I think it has underperformed the STI since I got in, but no matter, what's lost is lost so just look to the future and see if the company is a worthwhile investment at its current price. (The answer sounds pretty obvious since I got in at a higher price, but I would rather be safe and check its fundamentals)
