On Monday, Chunghwa Telecom Co. Ltd (TAI:2412) shares edged higher 1.37% after announcing its most recent quarterly results. The company said its fiscal Q3 net income attributable to common shareholders increased by 12.8% from the same quarter a year ago.

Chunghwa reported growth in mobile communications and internet revenues, which helped offset declines in domestic and international fixed communications revenues.

Is Chunghwa a safe stock to buy?

From an investment perspective, Chunghwa shares trade at a reasonable P/E ratio of 24.84, making it a potential target for value investors. However, with a price-earnings growth (PEG ratio of 17.74, Chunghwa looks steeply valued for growth investors.

Therefore, although its trailing P/E ratio seems reasonable, it could be a potential value trap due to its declining revenues and weak growth prospects.

Technically, Chunghwa shares seem to be trading within a consolidative triangle formation in the intraday chart. As a result, the stock could be nearing a potential breakout, creating an exciting opportunity for investors.

Based on the company’s recent results, it looks like a bullish breakout is more likely, but given its long-term outlook, the stock could also plunge.

Therefore, investors could target profits for a potential upward breakout at about $40.00, while a downward breakout could find support at $39.00.

Is it time to buy?

In summary, with Chunghwa shares gaining slightly after Monday’s earnings beat, it seems like a perfect opportunity to buy. 

However, investors should also be cautious of the company’s discouraging growth outlook and steep valuation before betting on a bullish breakout.
