COMFORTDELGRO CORPORATION LTD (SGX:C52)
ComfortDelGro - Positive On Long-Term Outlook
  • Maintain NEUTRAL and DCF-based SGD2.65 Target Price, 5% downside.
  • We remain confident of COMFORTDELGRO (SGX:C52)’s earnings growth, aided by contributions from recent acquisitions, and its public transport unit’s growth. Any reduction in Singapore rail losses amidst higher transport fares or government grants received could lift earnings and our Target Price.

DBS GROUP HOLDINGS LTD (SGX:D05) OVERSEA-CHINESE BANKING CORP (SGX:O39) UNITED OVERSEAS BANK LTD (SGX:U11)
Banks - 2Q19F Preview ~ NIM Growth At Their Peaks
  • A normalisation in trading and wealth management income is likely to weigh on 2Q19F earnings but repricing efforts should raise NIMs 1-2bp q-o-q.
  • Forward guidance on NIMs (pending Fed rate cut), growth (-ve trade noise), wealth strategy (HK unrest) and capital management will drive share prices.
  • Maintain NEUTRAL. Bank valuations are supported by benign credit conditions but catalysts are limited. Our preference is for UOB (SGX:U11), OCBC (SGX:O39), then DBS (SGX:D05).

EC WORLD REIT (SGX:BWCU) ASCOTT RESIDENCE TRUST (SGX:A68U) CAPITALAND RETAIL CHINA TRUST (SGX:AU8U) DASIN RETAIL TRUST (SGX:CEDU)
Singapore REITs - Monthly Tracker (july 2019)
  • FTSE S-REIT index return gained 3.6% MTD and 22.0% YTD. Strongest gains were from the Healthcare sector (+3.9% YTD) and weakest showing at the Hospitality sector (-2.3% YTD).
  • Sector yield spread still below the -1 standard deviation (s.d.) level as at end-June, at 245bps, over the benchmark 10-year SGS (10YSGS) yield.
  • 3-month SOR fell to 1.83% as at end-June.
  • Remain NEUTRAL on S-REITs sector. Sub-sector preferences: Office and Hospitality.



SECTOR SNAPSHOT
  • S-REIT yield spread declined 65bps YTD as at end-June. The S-REIT yield spread compressed to 245bps as at end-June, still below the -1 standard deviation (SD) level. The S-REIT dividend yield was 4.41% as at end-June. The 10YRSGS yiseld eased 9bps m-o-m, to end at 2.00% as at end-June.
  • 3-month SOR fell m-o-m 22 bps to 1.83% as at end-June.
  • The Monetary Authority of Singapore (MAS) published a consultation paper on 3 July 2019 in consideration of raising the current leverage limit of 45% and removing the requirement for REITs to submit a notification to MAS to obtain a “Restricted Scheme” status when they make an offer of units to accredited and other investors. This will allow the REITs more flexibility in managing their capital structure and capitalising on opportunities. Possibility of using operational metrics such as the interest coverage ratio (ICR) to determine the maximum leverage allowed.
  • PRIME US REIT (SGX:OXMU), an office REIT consisting 11 Grade A US office properties, debuted on the SGX on 19 July 2019. It forecasted an indicative yield of 7.4%/7.6% for FY19/20. The units were 1.2x subscribed at its market debut. Share price opened at US$0.865, 1.7% down on the IPO price but closed at US$0.88, the IPO issuance price. See Prime US REIT Share Price; Prime US REIT Analyst Reports; Prime US REIT Announcements; Prime US REIT Latest News.
  • Consolidation theme in play: Proposed combination of ASCOTT RESIDENCE TRUST (SGX:A68U) and ASCENDAS HOSPITALITY TRUST (SGX:Q1P) will create the largest hospitality trust in Asia and the eighth largest globally.

Retail:
  • Retail sales (excluding motor vehicle sales) declined -2.9% y-o-y in May, on a seasonally adjusted basis, dragged down largely by the furniture & household equipment (-13.0%) and the computer & telecom equipment (-6.9%) sectors. The F&B index was up +2.30% y-o-y (seasonally adjusted) in June.

Office:
  • Grade A (Core CBD) office rents grew 1.3% q-o-q in 2Q19, slowing from 3.5% q-o-q in 1Q19 according to CBRE Research. Average annual supply of office space coming onto the market from 2019 to 2023 (0.8mn sqft) is 27% lower than the 10-year average supply of 1.1mn sqft and should help to support rents.
  • CAPITALAND COMMERCIAL TRUST (SGX:C61U) announced that they have signed a seven-year lease with We Work commencing 2Q20, for the entire 21 Collyer Quay building (formerly leased to HSBC).

Industrial:
  • Leasing activity in the industrial sector mirrored the slowdown in the manufacturing sector. Google will take up c.33% of space in FRASERS COMMERCIAL TRUST (SGX:ND8U)'s Alexandra Technopark while MAPLETREE INDUSTRIAL TRUST (SGX:ME8U) announced its largest redevelopment project, which will reposition their Kolam Ayer 2 Cluster from flatted factories to high-tech industrial assets.

Hospitality:
  • Average RevPAR saw a minuscule improvement of 0.27% y-o-y in May, with higher average room rate (ARR) being partially offset by lower occupancy. The luxury and mid-tier segment recorded RevPAR growth of 3.0% and 2.9% respectively while the up-scale and economy segment ended in the red (-1.33% and -3.33% respectively).


INVESTMENT ACTIONS

Remain NEUTRAL on the S-REITs sector, with selective sub-sector preferences.
  • While the S-REIT yield spread is currently below the -1SD level since the global financial crisis, strong rental growth should offset any adverse effects from rising interest rates. Strong rally in prices due to the dovish stance communicated by the FED has resulted in the FTSE S-REIT index return gains of 22.0% YTD. See S-REITs share price performance.
  • Most of the upside from the lower interest rate stance have been priced in, with many REITs trading at rich valuations (+2 std dev P/NAV).

Top-down view (unchanged)
  • We like the Commercial and Hospitality sub-sectors due to tapering supply after the surge in supply in the prior two to three years. We are cautious on the Retail sub-sector as retail sales and shopper footfall both leave much to be desired.

Tactical bottom-up view (unchanged)
  • REITs that can better weather through the rising interest rate environment would be those with:
    1. Low gearing;
    2. High-interest coverage;
    3. Long weighted average debt to maturity; and
    4. A high proportion of debt on fixed interest rates.

Singapore 3Q19 Strategy - Too Hungry For Yield
  • STI was up 3.4% in 2Q19. It was a volatile quarter, with two positive months sandwiched between May’s major sell-down. The largest gainers were REITs and specific stocks such as SingTel (SGX:Z74) (recovery in regional associates) and Wilmar International (SGX:F34) (IPO plans in China).
  • Markets rallied on a reversal of the Fed’s interest-rate stance and hopes of a trade resolution. Trump doused all such optimism by raising tariffs on Chinese imports. This against a backdrop of already weak global growth.
  • REITs rallied in the quarter on market expectations that interest rates have peaked, globally. The Fed will be cutting interest rates while the ECB has signalled the restarting of quantitative easing. Central banks’ back-stop has returned.

VENTURE CORPORATION LIMITED (SGX:V03)
Venture Corporation - Silver Linings Playbook
2Q19 may miss; but maintain BUY
  • Looking past 2019E, multiple levers of growth appear intact and Venture Corporation (SGX:V03) is a beneficiary of the US-China trade war, as around 85% of production is outside China. However, 2Q19 may miss amid customers’ product transitions, and a potential share price fall may provide an even more attractive entry.
  • History suggests the stock is well supported at long-term mean dividend yield of 5.3%, which implies SGD13.20 on FY19E basis. We await 2Q19 results to reassess our forecasts.
  • Maintain BUY and ROE-g/COE-g Target Price of SGD19.74 (based on 2.2x FY19E P/B).

Soilbuild Business Space REIT - Navigating Near-Term Hurdles

  • Rental reversions, while still slightly negative, have remained stable over the last two quarters.

  • HOLD; Target Price unchanged at S$0.63 after lowering risk-free rate assumptions by 50bps.

WILMAR INTERNATIONAL LIMITED (SGX:F34)
Wilmar International - Value Discovery
A China listing should uplift valuations
  • We estimate a Chinese listing can potentially unlock as much as a 23% higher valuation for Wilmar International (SGX:F34) - consumer staple peers in China trade at an 80% PE premium. The group is likely to raise at least USD2.1bn to support new capacity in oilseeds and grains processing, according to its prospectus lodged with China’s securities regulator – CSRC.
  • If the Singapore ParentCo pays out an equivalent of half the raised amount as capex savings, the 2020E potential dividend yield could rise to 9% (vs. 2.7% now).

SATS LTD. (SGX:S58)
SATS - Temporary Travails
1Q20 missed due to many one-offs
  • SATS LTD. (SGX:S58)' 1Q20 reported PATMI of SGD54.7m missed our and consensus estimates by c12-15%. That said, most of the factors responsible for the miss are temporary in our view and should mend in coming quarters, and underlying core PATMI of SGD58.5 was just a shade below our expectation accounting for c22% of FY20E.
  • While Singapore fell, Japan and ASEAN ex-SG associates/JVs grew better than expected.
  • Our BUY and DCF-based Target Price (WACC 6.8%; TGR 2%) of SGD6.10 are unchanged.
