The number of unorthodox companies is increasing rapidly on the Vietnamese stock market, generating steady revenue and profit every year.

Hai Phong Funeral Services JSC (CPH), the only funeral service provider on the stock market so far, posts impressive business results with revenues of hundreds of billion Vietnamese dong per year, earning some VND300 million (US$13,000) of revenue per day.

CPH trades pots, caskets, stone tombs and other funeral products, as well as providing funeral, burial, cremation services.

In the company's gross profit structure, the sale segment accounts for about 80 per cent of the total gross profit. After-tax profit has been flat for many years with about VND9 billion. Earning per share (EPS) is over VND2,060 in 2020.

The company has paid dividend at a rate of 16 per cent to shareholders over the past four years. And due to maintaining a low transaction price of VND3,500 per share at present, the price-to-earnings (P/E) is at the desired level at 1.7 times.

Another company which also serves in the spiritual realm is Yen Bai Joint Stock Forest Agricultural Products And Foodstuff Company (CAP). Few people know that this company produces and sell votive paper.

Votive paper segment accounts for 50 per cent of CAP’s total revenue, bringing about VND200 billion in 2020. The rest of revenue comes from tapioca and cinnamon oil.

On the stock market, CAP shares have been rising continuously. Currently, CAP is trading at around VND62,100 per share, doubling that of the beginning of 2020.

Despite the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, revenue in 2020 grew approximately nine per cent compared to the previous year, to reach VND5 trillion, post-tax profit increases by 19 per cent to VND68 billion. EPS reached VND2,485.

Charter capital of Siam Brothers Vietnam is approximately VND273 billion at present, market price is around VND13,000 per share. Market liquidity is quite stable with tens of thousands to hundreds of thousands of shares matched each session.

Thong Nhat Match Joint Stock Company (DTN), a match manufacturer, decided to leave the stock market last year after six years of trading. It sees revenue reaching over a hundred of billion dong in recent years, particularly VND133 billion in 2019. However, the annual profit touched only around VND2-4 billion. It was even less than VND1 billion in 2019.

During its listing, DTN shares were seeing almost no liquidity. Very few transactions were made, mostly internal transactions.

Before it left the trading floor in August 2020, there were some transactions with thousand of DTN shares matched. The stock price of DTN suddenly soared to VND74,000 per share after these transactions. DTN closed the last session of trading on the stock exchange at the price of VND62,900 per share.

Merufa Joint Stock Company (MRF), the only condom manufacturing company on the stock market, has been listed since December 2017.

Merufa, formerly known as the Medical Rubber Enterprise under the Ministry of Health, was built in co-operation between the Government of Viet Nam and the United Nations Population Fund in 1987. Since then, Merufa has been providing the market with contraceptive products made from natural rubber in Viet Nam with the brand HAPPY.

Not only condoms, Merufa is also a pioneer in researching and producing other important medical products such as surgical gloves, transfusion bottles made from synthetic rubber.

Merufa’s condom business has faced many difficulties recently as it has to compete with famous foreign brands.

In 2020, in the face of widespread COVID-19 pandemic, the demand for gloves in the market increased sharply, the company decided to invest in a second glove factory with a total investment of VND230 billion.

In 2019, Merufa recorded nearly VND108 billion in revenue, up 10.2 per cent from the previous year. The post-tax profit rose by 165 per cent to nearly VND6.7 billion. EPS was VND1,818.
