We bought into this stock sometime in November 2016, and a few weeks later the Ringgit started 'crashing' v the US Dollar. Entry was around 2.15-2.16.

KGB Kelington Group Bhd, a small industrial gas system supplier, run by former managers of Malaysia Oxygen Bhd. We entered this stock at price of 0.36-0.37 in early February 2017. Why? There was an announcement that thise PROC billionaire (#371 on
Forbes list) Hu Keqin had bought a stake of 100 million shares out of the 270m odd shares on issue in KGB.
Current price today 0.47.
