US stocks fell, dragging the Standard & Poor’s 500 Index down from a recent high of 1,573.66, as financial and energy shares tumbled after oil plunged and worse than estimated data spurred concern over American economic growth. American companies boosted employment by 158,000 workers in March, figures from the ADP Research Institute showed on Wednesday.

Maintain neutral at RM4.63 with a target price of RM4.50: We attended a meeting with Parkson Retail Asia’s (PRA) management last week and the key takeaways are as follows.

Parkson Holdings Bhd previously announced that 15 stores have been planned for opening in 2013 financial year ending June (FY13). Of the total, seven will be located in Southeast Asia and the remaining eight in China. As at the end of the second quarter (2Q) of FY13, only two of the planned seven stores in Southeast Asia have been opened.

Hai-O - MLM Catches Up

MLM Catches Up

Hai-O’s 9MFY13 results were largely in line with consensus and our estimates. Its MLM division continued to support both its top- and bottom-line growth, affirming our view that the company’s recovery is indeed on track. Maintain NEUTRAL with its FV unchanged at RM2.35, based on 12x FY13 EPS.

Decent performance. Hai-O’s revenue and core earnings (excluding a one-off compensation of RM0.57m received by the manufacturing division and a RM4.8m gain from disposal of vacant land) improved by 15.2% and 31.6% yo-y respectively, largely supported by a stronger showing from its multi-level marketing (MLM) and wholesale divisions. Compared to the preceding quarter, Hai-O’s sales grew by 4.6% while earnings contracted by 2.7%. This was mainly due to extensive A&P incurred pre-Chinese New Year and higher operating costs.

● BOC’s FY12 net profit came in at Rmb139.4 bn (up 12% YoY), 3% and 5% ahead of CS forecast and consensus. We judge that the beat was of low quality, derived from muted credit cost. 2012 dividend at Rmb0.175/share represents a 35% payout ratio.

● ABC reported 4Q12 profit of Rmb25.01 bn, -37% QoQ/ +18% YoY, one-third below ours and 14% below consensus estimates. Variance mainly due to credit cost which was almost double our forecast.

● Loans (+3.0% QoQ vs CS 2.8%), deposits (+0.7% QoQ vs CS 0.8%), net interest margins (2.80% vs CS 2.78%) and operating costs were consistent with our expectations. But credit cost of 130 bp (annualised) during 4Q was far ahead of CS est. of 70 bp.

4Q results slightly behind forecast—an element of kitchen-sinking?

● CCB reported 4Q12 net profit of Rmb35 bn (+16% QoQ/ -33% YoY), 12% shy of our forecast. We attribute the variance primarily to higher operating cost and credit cost. The bank proposed a 2012 cash dividend of Rmb0.268/shr = 35% payout ratio.

● Net interest margins remained resilient, down just 2 bp QoQ vs CS’ -12 bp. On an HoH basis, flat loan spreads and 19 bp higher securities spreads more than offset the 33 bp compression in interbank spreads. Operating costs were 12% higher than our forecast due to inclusion of CCB Life and marketing costs.

FAVELLE Favco (FFB) is a 62%-owned subsidiary of Muhibbah Engineering, with its core business in manufacturing customised cranes for the offshore oil and gas (O&G), construction and ports/wharf industries.

Given the encouraging global outlook for the O&G industry, and based on the average oil price of US$95 per barrel for financial year 2013 as well as anticipated flow of new O&G projects, we are bullish on the offshore crane segment for financial year 2013 and 2014.

Although third quarter 2013 net profit of RM11mil is still far from its hey day of RM15mil to RM20mil in financial year 2009 to 2010, we note that the company's new strategy of focusing on higher margin products (eg foundation garments) developing new operating structure for its multi-level-marketing (MLM) division is bearing fruit.

Semiconductors - A Flattish February
Global semiconductor sales inched up by 2% y-o-y in February while the semiconductor equipment industry’s book-to-bill ratio stayed above parity. Our outlook on the industry remains unchanged. Maintain NEUTRAL on MPI and Unisem.

Fourth straight month of growth. Recent data from the Semiconductor Industry Association (SIA) showed that February global chip sales ticked up by only a mere 2% y-o-y to USD23.3bn, which although tepid, marks the fourth consecutive month of growth. During the m onth, the Americas and Asia Pacific continued to be the leading contributors of semiconductor sales (+2% and +7% y-o-y respectively), while Europe and Japan were the laggards (-2% and -16% y-o-y respectively). YTD, global sales also perked up marginally – by 3% y-o-y – which was slightly below the full-year 2013 forecast of 4% y-o-y, according to World Semiconductor Trade Statistics (WSTS).

Sunway is a leading construction company and property developer in Malaysia. The leading regional property and construction group has a presence in Malaysia, Singapore and China. Sunway is also one of the largest landbank owners in Iskandar Malaysia (IM).

• Still a laggard. Sunway now owns 1,770 acres of land in IM, boasting a potential GDV of RM30b spanning 17 years. As Sunway is one of the largest landowners in IM, we view it as a laggard despite its impressive run-up over the past quarter.

In addition, the company is co-developing new sensor devices with its clients. With its outlook intact going forward, Globetronics' FY13 earnings will be underpinned by firm demand for smartphones and tablets, new orders from its Swiss and Japanese clients and organic growth from existing clients. Maintain BUY on Globetronics, with a FV of RM2.08, pegged to the stock's 5-year average PER of 11.6x.

Globetronics’ FY12 results were above our and consensus forecasts, with its RM41.3m net earnings accounting for 107.2%/111.0% of our and street estimates. The group’s FY12 EBIT margin improved to 15.9% from 10.8% in FY11. The better performance was driven by stronger sales in Malaysia and Singapore, as well as a disposal gain from its Jitra plant. We expect a 25% sales contribution from the group’s sensor manufacturing segment for FY13, which is set to be its fourth growth engine. We are maintaining our BUY call on Globetronics with a revised fair value of RM2.08, pegged to a higher projected FY13 EPS of 17.9sen, based on its 5-year average PER of 11.6x.

YTL Power : A Potential Price Floor (MIB)

YTL Power International
Share price: MYR1.48

A Potential Price Floor

Limited downside risk. The resumption of share buy-backs suggests a price floor may have been found. The group faces operational headwinds, but we think this is unlikely to have a material impact on share price performance. Recent corporate actions are supportive of an eventual share swap, thus we reiterate our BUY rating on YTLP. The stock risks becoming a value trap if no privatisation offer is made.

Hidden value to be extracted in its portfolio. The coming few years could be transformational for Cambridge REIT (CREIT).

Qantas re-routing kangaroo routes via Singapore to Dubai more of a headline grabber. Qantas website indicates that it has re-routed its kangaroo routes via Singapore to Dubai from 31 Mar, as part of its new alliance with Emirates. This move has led some investors wondering about the impact on Changi Airport, Singapore's tourism, Singapore Airlines (SIA) as well as SIA Eng and SATS. Our thoughts and assertions are:

Midas Holdings: Potential to secure more orders (RHB)

Midas Holdings: Potential to secure more orders
(BUY, S$0.52, TP: S$0.75)

We recently hosted Midas on a roadshow in Singapore. Highlights are: Management indicated that 1H13 will be challenging, but 2H could be stronger if things pick up. Visibility on how soon the Chinese government will award high-speed rail contracts remains low, but management is optimistic of the government’s commitment. Asian countries are planning to improve their connectivity by building highspeed railways to neighbouring countries and Midas is in a good position to ride on this trend. Maintain BUY with a TP of SGD0.75, based on 1.5x FY13 P/B.

STX OSV :A Bargain Hunt; (MKE)

STX OSV Holdings
Buy (new)
Share price: SGD1.23
Target price: SGD1.66 (new)
A Bargain Hunt; Initiate with BUY

 A steal at current price. We initiate coverage on STX OSV (VARD) with a Buy and TP of SGD1.66, pegged to 9x PER on average FY13-15F earnings. As a quality Norwegian shipyard with a niche in high specification offshore support vessels (OSV), VARD deserves to trade at a premium to Asian OSV yards. The conclusion of its sale to Fincantieri Group removes the overhang on share price, while recovering OSV orders will support an earnings turnaround. With a potential capital upside of 35% and FY13F dividend yield of 4.9% (which can rise to 7.3% in FY15F), the stock is a steal.

Target S$0.75
Dominating the budget segment

 Shop n Save’s 57 stores will be re-branded into Giant stores from today. Dairy Farm’s retreat from the budget segment highlights Sheng Siong’s competitive positioning in this space.

We upgrade to Outperform (from Neutral) on evidence of Sheng Siong’s dominance in the budget segment. Our estimates are maintained. We raise our target price, which is based on a higher applied multiple of 23x CY14 P/E (previously 18x) on a 5% discount to Dairy Farm (previously 20%). We see catalysts as earnings delivery from new stores and continued store expansion.

MSC updates Bursa on Indonesian unit contract


KUALA LUMPUR: Malaysia Smelting Corp Bhd (MSC) reiterates that its mining and smelting investment in Indonesia will be adversely affected if it fails to get a contract extension there.

The Indonesian government is still evaluating the contract extension of MSC's 75 per cent-owned PT Koba Tin.

Although the contract expired on March 31 this year, PT Koba is still allowed to undertake production operations up to a maximum of three months from Monday, pending the evaluation.

Dry bulk shipping : Confidence in the shipping sector is rising (CIMB)

Dry bulk shipping
Bulk rates across the various shipping segments, with the exception of handysizes, fell slightly amidst light activity in the market. Average rates fell 2.6-6.1%, while handysize rates gained 0.9% wow. China's appetite for iron ore imports has yet to pick up, despite ore inventories hovering close to a four-year low. This is attributed to weaker steel demand, low steel prices, and high rebar inventory. In addition, iron ore prices are trading at relatively high levels, currently around US$136/ton, which is deterring steel mills from heavily restocking the raw material.

China Merchants Bank: Surprise hike in dividend (CIMB)

China Merchants Bank
Current HK$16.44
Target HK$17.57
Surprise hike in dividend

 A rise in dividend payout from 25% to 30.0% was the biggest surprise in CMB’s results announcement, which added colour to the pre-results announcement in early Mar. We question whether CMB can afford the higher payout given its weak capital ratios and delayed rights issue.

FY12 (pre-announced) net profit was 0.3% above our forecast. Comparisons with consensus are not meaningful given the pre-announcement. We cut FY13 EPS by 11% and FY14 by 9% for lower fee growth of 20% (prev. 22%) and lower NIM for FY14. Our GGM-derived target (1.16x P/BV) falls to HK$17.57. We reiterate our Neutral rating.

US$72m contract for six vessels
• Two AHTS to Icon Offshore Berhad
• Four ERRVs for deployment in the North Sea
• Buoyant industry outlook

Nam Cheong Ltd announced that it has sold six vessels worth a total of US$72.1m to two of its existing customers. Two 5,150 bhps Anchor Handing Towing Supply (AHTS) vessels were sold to Icon Offshore Berhad, one of Malaysia’s largest OSV group, while four Emergency Response and Rescue Vessels (ERRVs) were sold to a Singapore-based company that provides ship management and chartering services. The six vessels will be built in one of its sub-contracted yards in China with expected deliveries between 2Q13 and 4Q14.

Fufeng Group: MSG to bottom out in 2H13 (CIMB)

Fufeng Group
Current HK$2.77
Target HK$3.90
MSG to bottom out in 2H13

 FY12 net profit dropped 29% yoy and was 8.5% behind our forecast due to a higher expenses ratio and finance costs. We expect MSG prices to rebound to Rmb7,500/t in 2H13 as industry consolidation is coming to a close. Xanthan gum would contribute 65% net profit in FY13.

We cut FY13-14 earnings by 10% to reflect weaker MSG prices, a higher distribution cost/sales ratio and increase in finance costs. We maintain Outperform due to a positive outlook for xanthan gum and the bottoming of MSG prices in 1H13. Our DCF-based target price was diluted to HK$3.9 given the one-for-five rights issue.

Noble Group: A great bargain (CIMB)

Noble Group
Current S$1.22
Target S$1.47
A great bargain

Slower economic activity, heightened risk aversion and earnings disappointments have pinned Noble’s share price near to all-time lows. The IMF now projects an acceleration of global growth in 2013-2014, suggesting that Noble’s fortunes could be turning.

Against a backdrop of low expectations and low ownership, any positives from earnings surprises and a return of risk appetites could spark Noble’s rerating. We maintain our Outperform rating, EPS estimates and target price (10.1x CY14 P/E, 0.5SD below the 5-year mean).

Food Empire - Key roadshow takeaways

Food Empire -

Key roadshow takeaways

We recently hosted Food Empire for a roadshow in Singapore. Among the key takeaways are: 1) Management has turned more bullish in terms of topline growth, 2) Backward integration plans are on track and should come on-stream in 3Q13. While we raise our FY13/14 revenue growth projections to 17%/21%, our earnings remain largely unchanged as we take into account higher depreciation and start-up costs. We continue to like the firm for its dominant position in Russia and Eastern Europe. Re-iterate BUY with an unchanged TP of SGD0.84. This translates into 16x FY13F P/E vs Super Group which is trading at 26x.

Earnings missed consensus by 2.4% but this was largely due to conservative provisions made in 4Q12. Fundamentally, results were strong with qoq NIM expansion, increased coverage ratio and better utilisation of its liquid balance sheet through LDR expansion. We forecast that ABC will continue to deliver faster growth vs Big 4 peers. Maintain BUY with a target price of HK$4.60.

Being one of the largest landowners in Iskandar with about 1,770 acres with a projected GDV of RM30b, we believe Sunway could replicate similar success in their Sunway township in Iskandar. On another note, Sunway intends to pay out dividends semi-annually to reward shareholders, which we view as positive. We remove our 10% discount to SOTP with a revised target price of RM3.48. Maintain BUY.

Failure of STX Pan Ocean sale? (CIMB)

 Failure of STX Pan Ocean sale?
TradeWinds reported that the proposed disposal of a 35% stake in STX Pan Ocean by STX Corp has failed to attract suitable bids, and that Korea Development Bank may have to eventually buy the stake in order to inject cash into its troubled parent.

 As a result, after rising from W2,810 to a high of W6,100 on 30 Jan, the share price has corrected 35% to W3,970, and we expect it to correct another 25% to our target price of W2,960 (S$3.30), which incidentally, is close to its early-Dec lows. STX Pan Ocean is our top Underperform in our coverage universe, with Pacific Basin as our top pick. We are Neutral on the shipping sector overall.

ICBC: Another solid quarter (CIMB)

Current HK$5.45
Target HK$6.43
Another solid quarter

 ICBC reported another solid quarter. Yet, management’s cautious outlook on NIMs and its Rmb loan growth drive our earnings and target price somewhat lower. In spite of these changes, we reiterate our Outperform rating for ICBC which remains one of our top picks.

FY12 net profit of Rmb238.5bn was in line at 1.2% above our forecast and 2.8% above consensus. 4Q12 net profit of Rmb52.9bn was 5.5% above our forecast on higher non-interest revenue. We cut our FY13-14 EPS by 3-10% on lower NIMs, lower loan growth and fees, but partly offset by lower loan provisions. We cut our GGM-derived target price to HK$6.43 for a 1.42x FY13 P/BV. Better NIM and asset quality are catalysts.

We think the key drives over the next 12-24 months will remain 1) strengthening its balance sheet, 2) reducing overhead costs and 3) refocusing on its role as an independent middleman between commodity producers and customers. We believe some of these will bear fruits in the near-term, which may provide an upward lift to earnings.

Net profit missed consensus and our estimate slightly by 2.6% and 1.4%, respectively. The dividend of Rmb0.35/shr is in line with past policy, representing a 24% payout ratio.

The region’s budget airline industry is poised for a huge shake-up after Indonesia’s largest privately run airline, Lion Air, placed a “blockbuster order” for 234 medium-haul jets from Airbus last week. Anshuman Daga from Reuters opined that the order underlined Lion Air’s ambitious plans to mount a serious challenge to the region’s biggest budget airline, AirAsia Bhd.

Lion Air’s challenge was laid bare when it launched its first service into Malaysia, the home ground of AirAsia. With the pace of expansion reaching fever pitch levels, industry watchers have started to question if the budget carriers were overextending themselves.

CHINA's stock market was a roller coaster in 2012 and investors with a weak stomach for unpredictability probably found the ride unpleasant. It's true that, by many measures, last year's weak market performance in China's A-share market was disappointing, but in a market of this size, the story isn't all good or all bad.

So, unlike the market masses, I remain confident about China's prospects and continue to search for long-term investment opportunities in the country. As the late Sir John Templeton famously said, "The time of maximum pessimism is the best time to buy, and the time of maximum optimism is the best time to sell."

AEI making good progress. Pre-commitments for Suntec City Mall's (SCM) Phase 1 post-AEI leases hit 83% in 4Q12 and we believe most were secured above the targeted SGD12.59 psf/mth. Suntec also reported that 37% of Phase 2 NLA has been pre-committed. We note that Phase 2 AEI for SCM has commenced and the intensity of the refurbishment works could mean that overall AEI works should wrap up as scheduled by 4Q14. We estimate that the largest dip on FY13 DPU will occur in 1Q-2Q13, when Phase 1 new tenants have yet to start paying rentals and Phase 2 old tenants are being vacated for the AEI.

Target S$0.77
The third cog

 Oishi is already an integral engine of Thai Bev; its combination with F&N and Serm Suk is now being mapped. In a recent company visit, Oishi narrated its aggressive growth plans. We also understood how Serm Suk’s returnable-bottle logistics form a formidable barrier of entry.

Weaker 2012 non-alcoholic earnings were due to temporal factors and is not a concern. We tweak our FY13-14 estimates and raise our SOP target price on a higher target multiple for the non-alcoholic beverage business. Maintain Outperform with catalysts to come from earnings delivery by non-alcoholic beverage division.

CNOOC: Dividend surprise (DBSV)

BUY HK$14.32
HSI : 22,115
Price Target : 12-Month HK$ 18.30 (Prev HK$ 18.90)
Dividend surprise

FY12 result in line, higher-than-expected final DPS of HK$0.32 declared
Growth back-loaded, production to grow 11% p.a. in 2014-2015
Maintain BUY, tweaked DCF-based TP to HK$18.30

Within expectations. FY12 net profit of Rmb63.7bn (-9% y-oy) was at 97-98% of our and consensus forecasts. Overall production gained marginally to 342mmboe (+3% y-o-y) but will likely remain flat this year (DBSV FY13F: 343mmboe vs CNOOC’s guidance of 338-348mmboe). Realised oil price was stable at US$110/bbl in 2012. We expect oil price to average at this level this year as well. Meanwhile, CNOOC made up for the earlier interim dividend disappointment by declaring a higherthan- expected final DPS of HK$0.32, matching last year’s payout ratio of 27%. Overall yield at current share price is 3.3%.

TPV Technology: Time to take profit (CIMB)

TPV Technology
Current HK$2.49
Target HK$2.61
Time to take profit

 4Q12 profit is consistent with consensus forecast but 15% below ours on higher-than-expected opex and effective tax rates. Although good progress has been made to lower TP Vision’s operating costs, we believe the operating environment remains taxing.

FY12 EPS is 5% below our estimate on lower-than-expected 4Q12 earnings. We lower our FY13-14 EPS by 6-7% for higher opex and effective taxes and introduce FY15 numbers. Accordingly, our target price dips, still based on a conservative 0.4x P/BV (30% discount to its 5-year average). Downgrade to Neutral from Outperform following its share-price outperformance, with no immediate catalysts foreseen.

Mapletree Logistics Trust: Second disposal attempt (OCBC)

Mapletree Logistics Trust:
Fair value S$1.25
add: 12m dividend forecast S$0.07
versus: Current price S$1.21

Second disposal attempt
• Sale of Singapore property at S$15.5m
• Transaction likely successful this time
• Potential distribution of disposal gains

Mapletree Logistics Trust (MLT) announced last Friday that it has entered into an option to purchase agreement for the divestment of 30 Woodlands Loop in Singapore at a sale price of S$15.5m.

First Real Estate Investment Trust : Another Two Assets in the Pocket (SIAS)

First Real Estate Investment Trust
Another Two Assets in the Pocket
• Intrinsic Value S$1.305
• Prev Closing Price S$1.305

First Real Estate Investment Trust’s (First REIT) acquisition of another two assets in Indonesia was largely anticipated (refer to our previous update on 25 January 2013), albeit slightly earlier than expected. First REIT just completed the purchase of Siloam Hospitals Manado & Hotel Aryaduta Manado & Siloam Hospitals Makassar in November 2012 and we are much impressed by their execution speed.

CapitaMall Trust :At All The Right Places (KE)

CapitaMall Trust
Share price: SGD2.10
Target price: SGD2.36 (unchanged)
At All The Right Places

Expect more positive news flows. CapitaMall Trust (CMT) has used the bulk of the SGD250m raised via a private placement last November to partially finance the redemption of the SGD300m 2-year retail bonds which matured in February. Nonetheless, we still expect more positive news flows in the following months on new AEI plans, which are most likely to involve Tampines Mall and/or Funan. CMT remains one of our top picks amongst the S-REITs. Reiterate BUY, target price SGD2.36.

Genting Hong Kong: Strong growth trajectory (DBSV)

Genting Hong Kong Ltd
BUY US$0.455/ HK$3.48
STI: 3267.65/ HSI : 22,225.88
Price Target : 12-month US$0.55/ HK$4.24 (prev. US$0.54/HK$4.20)
Strong growth trajectory

• 2H12 results above expectations, all cylinders firing
• Minimal impact from rising competition at Manila Bay, NCL to jump with delivery of newbuilds in 2Q13 onwards
• Maintain Buy, SOP-based TP tweaked to US$0.55/HK$4.24

Above expectations. 2H12 core net profit came in at US$166m (5x of 1H12’s US$33m), bringing full-year earnings to a record US$199m (+25%) – 20% above our and consensus estimates.

Dry-Bulk Shipping Seen by Jefferies on ‘Cusp’ of Recovery

Dry-Bulk Shipping Seen by Jefferies on ‘Cusp’ of Recovery

Stronger demand for iron ore and coal shipped by sea, led by record monthly steel production in China amid slowing fleet growth, is poised to end a downturn in dry-bulk shipping, said Jefferies Group Inc.
“The dry-bulk shipping market could very well be on the cusp of a sustained, cyclical recovery,” the New York-based investment bank said in a quarterly report e-mailed today.

Fleet growth at 5 percent to 6 percent this year amid increased production of iron ore, a steelmaking raw material, “will likely be insufficient to absorb the incremental demand” by miners in the second half of 2013, Jefferies said. The outlook for the industry is “increasingly attractive,” with global dry-bulk trade estimated to grow by at least 6 percent in 2013, Jefferies said
