Tenaga RM8.87: Sell
It's going to get even more challenging Shariah-compliant
RM2.5b FY10 net profit ex-forex (+22% YtD) below consensus. 4Q net profit plunged 23% QoQ to RM414m on seasonally high "other costs" and rising coal prices. The final dividend was raised to 20 sen/share, but
the 3% gross full-year yield is still not particularly compelling. We tweak our EPS forecasts on post-result housekeeping and still expect FY11 net profit contraction on higher coal prices.

Nestle (Malaysia) RM43.60: Buy
It's marvellous what Milo can do! Shariah-compliant

Tried and tested recipe. Nestle's 10% share price gain since our upgrade on 30 August was nearly double the main Index's gain during the same period. 9M10 results outperformed. We tentatively raise our earnings a further 6-8% for 2010-12 and DCF-based TP by 3% to RM45 (from RM43.86) as we await its analysts' briefing later today for further details. Buy as we foresee further upside to its earnings and TP.


Loh & Loh Corporation RM4.80: Accept offer
Ceasing coverage Shariah-compliant

Stock to be delisted. The mandatory take-over offer by PetroSaudi International and ultimately, Sheikh Tarek Essam Ahmad Obaid for Loh & Loh shares at RM4.85 a piece, has received 96.82% acceptances. The offerer does not intend to maintain the listing status of Loh & Loh. The stock will accordingly be suspended from trading on 8 Nov 2010.


The FBM KLCI rose slightly higher by 0.33 points yesterday to end at 1,499.44. Its resistance areas at 1,504 and 1,512 may cap market gains, whilst its support areas are located at 1,483 and 1,499. Due to the mixed tone in the USA last night, we may see the FBM KLCI in a muted mode today - with later blue chip and mid-cap nibbling that may curtail some initial profit-taking activities.

Trading idea for today is a SHORT TERM BUY call on KFC.
