Top Story : First Resources – Exponential earnings growth at inexpensive valuations Outperform
New Coverage
- First Resources (FR) is a small (by Indonesian standards) but efficient pure plantation company listed in Singapore. FR has 113,010ha of landbank in Indonesia and currently operates 8 palm oil mills. It has also ventured downstream via a 250k tonne capacity refinery and a 250k tonne capacity biodiesel plant. It is currently constructing a 300k tonne fractionation plant which will be completed by 1HFY12/011.
- We believe there are five major reasons for investing in FR: 1) Its strong growth profile, given its young plantation age profile; 2) Aggressive planting targets, given its unplanted landbank; 3) Efficient planter, with below average cost of production; 4) Downstream expansion to boost bottomline; and 5) Valuations at unjustifiable significant discount to peers. We project FR to post a core net earnings (ex-EI and biological gains/losses) CAGR of 59.8% over the next three years to FY12.
- FR is currently trading at 8.7x CY10 EPS and 7.2x CY11 EPS, which is a significant discount to the Malaysian plantation sector’s average PE of 19.2x for FY10 and 15.4x for FY11 and even to the regional plantation sector average of 12.6x for FY10 and 10.6x for FY11. Given FR’s efficiently-run estates, clean operating structure and sustainable earnings growth for the medium to long term, we believe FR does not deserve to trade at such a large discount to industry peers. We assign a target PE of 11.5x to FR’s FY11
EPS, which is a 30% discount to our Malaysian target PER for the mid-cap plantation stocks, to obtain our target price of S$1.55/share. We initiate coverage with an Outperform recommendation.

 Corporate HighlightsQL :
Expecting strong FY10 results
Outperform
 Results Preview- 4QFY3/10 results (due out today) are likely to come in within expectations. In 4Q10, we expect net profit topost double-digit % growth yoy driven mainly by its marine product manufacturing division, due to higher sales volume of surimi-based products coupled with increase in surimi prices of around 10% yoy.- QL is still targeting 10-15% net profit growth for FY11 on the back of higher sales volume from all divisions,margin improvement from continuous operating efficiency and lower cost of feedmeal, which is in line withour forecasts. In FY11 as well, QL’s palm pellet project will be undergoing commercialisation and therecould be potential earnings contribution from this project during the year. We have yet to input any potentialearnings from this project into our forecasts.- No changes to forecasts. Maintain Outperform with unchanged fair value of RM3.93 (13x CY10 PER).
 IJM Corp :
Kajang-Seremban Highway’s traffic falls short of projection
Market Perform
 News Update- Concessionaire Lekas expects the average daily traffic volume of the 44km Kajang-Seremban Highway tocome in at only 70-80k in its first year of full opening, vis-à-vis the initial projection of 100k.- It expects the RM1.8bn highway to break even in 8-10 years. IJM owns a 50% stake in Lekas.- In our forecasts, we only assume construction profits but not tolling profits from the highway over our forecast period.- Maintain Market Perform. Fair value is RM4.88.
EON Capital :
Board decides to proceed with EGM
Outperform
News Update (published 21 May 2010)- EON Cap announced last Friday that the Board had decided to proceed and table HL Bank’s proposal toacquire the entire assets and liabilities of EON Cap for RM5.06bn (Offer or Proposed Disposal) for shareholders’ approval.- This is notwithstanding the independent financial adviser’s (IFA) view that the Offer by HL Bank was “notfair from a financial perspective”.- The Board’s decision does not come as a surprise to us as we had previously mentioned that the Boardwould still likely proceed with the EGM, regardless of the IFA’s opinion.
 
- EON Cap also announced a proposal to distribute the cash proceeds arising from the Proposed Disposal toits shareholders. This will comprise a special dividend, which is estimated to be about RM3.3bn, followedby a capital repayment exercise for the balance of the proceeds.- No change to our Outperform call and fair value of RM8.07 (15x FY10 EPS).
EON Capital :
Starting off on a strong note
Outperform
 1QFY10 Results/Briefing Note- 1QFY10 net profit (+22.9% yoy; +58.8% qoq) was in line with our and consensus expectations.- Net interest income registered qoq growth for the third consecutive quarter. This was on the back of 2.4%qoq (9.3% yoy) loan growth while NIMs were roughly stable.- Non-interest income remained healthy, supported mainly by sustainable transactional fee income while CIRimproved to 54.3% (4Q09: 64.6%; 1Q09: 57.1%).- Impairment allowances for loans were higher qoq and yoy, but this was largely a reflection of higher collective impairment allowance.- Following the adoption of EON Cap’s gross impaired loans ratio as at end-Mar’10 stood at 4.2%, ascompared to the gross NPL ratio of 3.8% as at end-Dec’09 (4.3% based on FRS139). LLC stood at 76.6%as at end-1Q10 (4Q09: 78.5%; 1Q09: 70.6%).- Core capital ratio at end-1Q10 was 10.8% (4Q09: 11.2%; 1Q09: 9.5%).- No change to our forecasts. Fair value of RM8.07 (15x FY10 EPS) and Outperform call maintained.
PLUS :
1QFY12/10 traffic volume rises by 9.1%
Outperform
 1QFY10 Results/Briefing Note- 1QFY12/10 came in within expectations, accounting for 25.0-25.3% of our full-year forecast and the full-year market consensus.- Despite having achieved yoy traffic volume growth of 9.1% at PLUS’s core expressways, managementexpects traffic volume growth to moderate to 3-4% in remaining quarters, due mainly to high-base effect.- Toll operations of the newly-acquired Padalur-Trichy Highway has commenced since 6 May 10 (whichmeans revenue contribution to PLUS) and the conditions precedent have been complied with andcompleted on 18 May 10.- Indicative fair value is RM4.13, equivalent to PLUS’s DCF-derived NPV.
WCT :
1QFY12/10 net profit declines 11% yoy
Underperform
 1QFY10 Results- 1QFY12/10 net profit came in within expectations at 22-25% of our full-year forecast and the full-year market consensus.- 1QFY12/10 net profit declined 11% yoy as lumpy overseas jobs were already at tail-ends, while new localcontracts had yet to hit significant billing milestones to fill up the vacuum.- WCT did not make any provision with regards to additional cost-overrun from Bakun. WCT owns aneffective 7.7% stake in the consortium that was awarded the contract.- Maintain Underperform. Fair value is RM2.10.
Furniweb :
Above expectations
Outperform
 1QFY10 Results- 1QFY12/10 core net profit of RM1.6m (-15.4% qoq) accounted for 22.9% and 23.8% of our and consensusfull-year estimates respectively. We consider this to be above our expectations given that 1Q is typically theweakest quarter.- We have raised our FY10-12 EBIT margin assumptions to 9.2%, 8.2%, and 8.2% respectively, but alsoraised our effective tax rate assumption to 30% p.a. (vs. 17.5% previously).- Consequently, our FY10 EPS forecast has been raised by 8.5%, while our FY11-12 EPS forecasts havebeen trimmed by 4.1% and 4.3% respectively.- We have raised our fair value estimate to RM0.71 (from RM0.66 previously) based on 8.5 FY10 PER.
Technical HighlightsDaily Trading Strategy :
Strong resistance-turn-support level at 1,300…
 
- Due to the latest technical break down below the important psychological threshold of 1,300 last Friday, theFBM KLCI has confirmed a bearish medium-term outlook on the technical chart.- Not only that, the weak closing with another bearish candle suggests that it is well underway to revisit thelower immediate support level of 1,250 soon.- Should 1,250 give way to sellers, meaningful support is only near the next psychological level at 1,200.- Having said that, with a triple-digit bounce on the US DJIA on last Friday, a mild rebound may appear onbargain-hunting activities today.- Still, we remain bearish on the overall market direction, as we believe the rebound, if any will unlikely to besustainable, and that it should meet a strong support-turn-resistance level at 1,300.- On hind side, as we continue to expect investors to trim their positions in view of further correction ahead,we foresee investors to “sell into strength” as the market has moved into a retracement phase.
