Chart on the left shows some of the Japfa's financial metrics on monthly basis. The stock is currently trading at the lower end of its P/S and P/B valuation.
Revenue had been gradually growing over the past 5 years at compounded rate of 8% p.a. Its Operating Margin is relatively stable at 8-9% and EPS had been improving gradually the past 3 years.
Its debt is a little to the high side but not too high to cause any concern at the moment.

On the right, MACD to price divergence indicate possible end to its correction. Its share price is about 65% correlated to the price of Lean Hogs futures, which had risen about 45% from its low in early Dec'21. This could be a potential catalyst to Japfa's share price. Possible support @ $0.58 and resistance @ $0.75.
