Hock Seng Lee RM1.82: Buy

Momentum building up Shariah-compliant
Raising target price. Recent news flow involving Sarawak, namely Mubadala's USD7b investment pledge and a good share of the 2011 National Budget allocation, are indications of rising construction job flows. We retain our RM600m 2010 job win target for HSL, but lift our 2011 target to RM720m (+20%). We also raise 2011 net profit forecast by 11% and 2012 by 9%. Our new target price, based on a higher 14x 2011 earnings multiple (previously 13x) is RM2.30 (+21%). Buy.


Digi.Com RM24.66: Hold

3Q10: Dividends intact Shariah-compliant
Results in line. 3Q10 net profit of RM289.3m (+3.9% QoQ, +18.5% YoY) brings 9M10 net profit to RM846m (+12.2% YoY), 77% of our full-year forecast and consensus. A third DPS of 50sen (RM1.20 YTD) was declared, and Digi remains on track to pay out more than 100% of its earnings in 2010. While payouts could decline in 2011, we still expect Digi to be the highest yielding among the Malaysian telcos.

The FBM KLCI was higher by 5.50 points yesterday to close at 1,496.94 on further positive investor sentiment, led by plantation plays. Its resistance areas at 1,503 and 1,510 may cap market gains, whilst the support areas for the FBM KLCI are located at 1,480 and 1,496.
Trading idea for today is a SHORT TERM BUY call on RSAWIT.
