Public Bank RM13.06: Hold
Slight forex impact on loans

No surprises. 1Q11 results accounted for 25% of our full-year forecast and consensus. Fundamentals remain very much intact with healthy loan growth, improving asset quality and robust ROEs. We nevertheless maintain our view that consumer demand is likely to taper off in 2H11 on the back of measures instituted recently coupled with inflationary pressure. To this end, we see little catalyst in the near term, while Public Bank's pricing is fair in our view (prospective 2011 P/BV of 3x, ROE: 23.9%). We maintain our Hold call with an unchanged DDM-derived TP of RM14.10 (payout ratio: 52%, cost of equity: 10.6%, terminal growth rate: 5%).

CapitaMalls Malaysia Trust RM1.12: Buy
On track; completed Gurney Plaza Extension acquisition

Maintain Buy. CMMT's RM25.8m 3M11 realised net profit (+13% QoQ) came in within expectations. CMMT has completed the RM215m Gurney Plaza Extension (GPE) acquisition which has further strengthened its position in the local retail industry. We raise our earnings forecasts by 10-13% to factor in GPE and the 144.9m new unit placement (RM1.06 issue price). Our DDM-based target price is raised to RM1.27 (+7 sen).

Malaysia Marine and Heavy Engineering Holdings RM6.88: Hold
IM 2011: Pasir Gudang yard site visit Shariah-compliant

Better days ahead but prospects largely priced in. We are encouraged by the brisk activity at MMHE's Pasir Gudang yard in southern Johor. We expect job replenishment momentum to kick-off earnestly from May and foresee MMHE clinching RM4-5b new jobs over the next 12 months. These positives could momentarily stretch share price performance beyond the 26x 2012 PER of the sector's historical peak, above our fundamental TP of RM6.50 (22x EPS).

The FBM KLCI advanced 5.98 points to close at 1,527.92 yesterday. Its resistance areas of 1,527 and 1,549 will cap market gains, whilst the weaker support areas are located at 1,517 and 1,525. The FBM KLCI has stalled at its new all-time and major high of 1,576.95 on 6 January 2011. The next key low sighted was at 1,474.38 (28 February 2011) and the next swing high was seen at 1,565.04 (4 April 2011).

Trading idea for today is a technical sell call on IOICORP.
