Sunrise RM2.52: Accept offer
Cheaper entry to UEM Land Shariah-compliant

Take up the offer. We view UEM Land's (UEML) conditional takeover offer (CTO) for Sunrise shares positively as the price offered is fair. We advise Sunrise shareholders to take up the share swap instead of the redeemable convertible preference shares (RCPS) option. The enlarged UEML will offer an exposure into the largest property developer in Malaysia. Based on 20sen net DPS declared by Sunrise earlier and our estimate of RM2.15-2.20 RNAV per UEML share post-Sunrise acquisition, the deal offers a cheaper entry to UEML.

The FBM KLCI gained 6.08-points last week as some further investor enthusiasm boosted above the 1,510-mark.The market remains strong in the weeks ahead. But do remain cautious as technically we are in very high chart territory. The obvious support areas for the FBM KLCI are located in the 1,476 to 1,511-zone. The key resistance areas of 1,513 and 1,524 may cap any rebound activity.

Weekly trading idea is a SHORT-TERM BUY call on KFC.
