Overall it has been a very satisfactory 2021 March and a very satisfactory 1Q 2021 for the Excel Portfolio.

Top Glove seems to have to many internal company problems in the industry that has seems to have its effects played out sooner than later. Initially a pick just in case Covid-19 got worst, it seems like Covid-19 vaccine story has played out much sooner and the problems with the company itself compounded and resulted in a very bad correction in its share price. An exit decision therefore has been reached.
China Sunsine is a pick as a proxy on the vehicle industry in China as well as the Chemicals industry proxy. With a decent 1Q expected and the recovery of the vehicle industry in China in 2021, it could reach its highs of recorded in 2018. Hence the decision to pick it up was made.
