Pan-United Corporation - Awaiting projects to take off

Shared By Stock Fanatic on Thursday, November 12, 2015 | 12.11.15

Expect stock to trade range bound
We believe that downside for the stock is protected by its 6.5% dividend yield, but upside will be limited due to its lacklustre earnings outlook as a result of weak margins from the ready-mixed concrete (RMC) business and higher interest costs. There is a civil construction project pipeline, but the pace of construction is not rapid. Private project developments are slow and we believe the rollout of government related projects will remain at best steady. Labour and restructuring challenges continue to persist. Our neutral stance for Pan-United Corp (Pan-United) is also backed by a muted GDP growth outlook of 1.8%/2.1% for 2015/2016.

Dividend yield of 6.5% supports share price
Management declares DPS based on what it believes is sustainable, currently at 4.3 Scts. PAN’s current dividend yield of 6.5% provides downside protection.

Pace of construction has been slow this year
Construction GDP growth has been unexciting at -1.6 to 2% this year. Nonetheless, key infrastructure projects in Singapore include Thomson Line, DTL3, Changi Airport T4 and HDB building/upgrading, which should provide support to PanUnited’s RMC business.

Technical Analysis
Daily Chart
SOTP valuation methodology. Our target price of S$0.61 is derived from a sum-of-parts valuation of Pan-United. We value its ready-mixed concrete (RMC) business based on 10x forward PE at S$0.35, CXP port operations at S$0.29 based on 15x forward port earnings, and CCIP port at S$0.14 based on 1x book, and Shipping business, net debt and others at -S$0.23 per share.

Key Risks to Our View:
Pan-United’s outlook is based on steady construction activities backed by civil projects in Singapore. Acceleration in private projects may cause a surge in construction demand, leading to better earnings outlook and more upside to its share price. (Read Report)
