Starhub - A glimmer of starlight

Shared By Stock Fanatic on Wednesday, August 15, 2018 | 15.8.18

Upgrade to Add with a revised target price of S$1.85. Multi-year share price decline now fairly accounts for competition risk, with potential upside surprise from cost cuts.

We cut FY19F-20F DPS to a more sustainable S$0.10 p.a. Still decent 6.1% yield.

■ StarHub will pursue cost optimisation in 2H18F. Our scenario analysis shows a sizeable fair value boost if cost cuts are better-than-expected.

■ Enterprise Fixed business may surprise on the upside on bigger-than-expected government contract wins and/or earnings-accretive acquisitions.

Key developments to watch: 
a) TPG’s service launch by year-end, 

b) TPG’s market traction by mid-2019 and

c) more details on cost cuts during 3Q/4Q18 results call. Read More

Wilmar International - Strongest 2Q core net profit since 2011

■ Wilmar delivered an almost tenfold jump in 2Q18 core net profit, thanks to better performances from its tropical oils as well as oilseeds and grains divisions.

■ Another positive from 2Q is the interim tax dividend of S$0.035/share (+17% yoy).

■ However, the group said that a prolonged US-China trade war will negatively impact its crush margins due to lower plant utilisation.

Maintain Add with SOP-based target price of S$4.10/share, due to its attractive valuations and plans to list its China operations. Read More

Memtech International - 2Q18 hit by poor margins

■ 2Q18 core PATMI of US$1m was a miss against our/consensus expectations.

■ Revenue grew 19% yoy in 2Q18, but GPM fell to 14.7% (2Q17: 17.3%) due to higher raw material costs, staff costs and more outsourcing of tooling work.

■ We expect qoq margin improvement in 3Q18F from better economies of scale.

■ Product pipeline boosted by new auto customer, medical device and military parts.
