THERE'S BLOOD on the streets but you wouldn't know it from looking at CEI Contract Manufacturing's share price performance.

CEI is at a 5-year high! It's currently trading at 57 cents.

The Group serves customers from a diverse range of market segments. These include analytical instruments, medical equipment, semi-conductor equipment, oil and gas industries, aviation and displays for industrial applications.

The reasons underlying the stock price gains became more evident this morning when the company announced its full-year FY15 results -- and a big hongbao dividend.

» Net profit jumped 110.5% to S$10.8 million.

» The second and final dividend is kept unchanged at 0.4 cents a share but the special dividend soared 161% from 1.84 cents to 4.8 cents.

That totals 5.2 cents, translating into a yield of 9.1% on the share price of 57 cents. Longer-term holders of the stock would have enjoyed another whopper dividend given out with the interim 1HFY2015 results of 4.8 cents a share.

Thus, the total for FY15 is a grand 10 cents a share (post-consolidation of shares).

Investors who caught on to CEI's story when it was highlighted last year in a NextInsight article have one of our readers, Wei, to thank for.

Aside from the hefty dividends, there is a capital gain of about 35% since it was published.

I had no idea about this stock 4 days ago. I dig it out by entering 6-7 criterias such as p/e,margins into a stock screener. I brought 59000 shares straight away.i was still a bit scared as I can hardly find any news about CEI. Now I feel relieved after seeing some articles about CEI on this site.Thank you!

Good pick, and so far so good. The orderbook is a little lower now than end-2014 and the Q is can the dividends be sustained? Such a high yield of nearly 20% is definitely a yummy treat. Any visibility on this?
