Fraser & Neave Holdings RM14.62: Hold
Great FY10 but challenges remain

At our price target. F&N's share price has hovered around our price target of RM14.60 since we downgraded it to Hold on 6 August 10. 4QFY10 results, which were ahead of market, but in line with our ests, takes FY10’s net profit to a record high. A total 4Q dividend of RM1.48/sh was declared, of which RM1.10/sh was 'special'. Maintain Hold and RM14.60 TP.

Aviation: Overweight
Firefly graduates to jet engines

Firefly to expand horizons. Firefly (MAS' LCC) announced its plans to launch services to East Malaysia on Jan 2011, and later to the ASEAN region. All systems are ready; regulatory approvals are granted, two leased Boeing 737-800 are in final stages of handover, staff are trained and ready to serve, and a promotional spearhead has been launched. Based on our analyses, the true winner is MAHB. The development is moderately negative on AirAsia and neutral on MAS.

Eastern Pacific Industrial Corp RM2.09: Buy
AZRB exits, state's holding enhanced Shariah-compliant

General Offer in the works? Lembaga Tabung Amanah Warisan Negeri Terengganu (LTAWNT) is now the 2nd largest shareholder after purchasing AZRB's 21.3% stake for RM112m (RM3.10/shr). The hefty 47% premium to Monday's closing price will create a positive buzz and further lift speculation that EPIC could be a privatization candidate. The acquisition may trigger a General Offer. Our RM2.40 target price is unchanged for now, based on 8x 2011 EPS. Buy.

The FBM KLCI rose climbed 8.10 points to 1,519.84 yesterday. Due to the mixed tone in the USA last night, we may see the FBM KLCI in a steady mode today. Its resistance areas at 1,522 and 1,524 may cap market gains, whilst its support areas are located at 1,500 and 1,519.

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