Public Bank RM13.36: Hold
Competitive pressures remain

Little excitement. 1H11 results were broadly within expectations, with net profit of RM1.71b (+20% YoY) accounting for 51% of our full-year forecast and 50% of consensus. Our forecasts are maintained with higher NIM contraction estimates offset by lower provisions. Consumer loan demand continues to show resilience at the group but we do expect this to taper off from 2H11 onwards. Pricing is fair at this stage ( (prospective 2012 P/BV of 2.7x, ROE: 23.5%). Hold call and TP of RM14.10 maintained, pegged to a 2012 P/BV of 2.8x.

Axis REIT RM2.62: Buy
Results in line; more acquisitions soon Shariah-compliant

Maintain Buy. AXRB’s RM31.8m 1H11 core net profit (+33% YoY) came in as expected. Its 4.5 sen 2Q11 DPU was also in line. Share price has performed well thanks to a switch in preference to defensive stocks. No change in our earnings forecasts but we raise our TP to RM2.75 (+15 sen) as we roll over our base year to 2012. A lower beta assumption has also contributed to the upgrade in TP. With a 12% total return, AXRB remains as our top pick for the M-REITs sector.

S P Setia RM3.92: Buy
Reaping full benefit of KL Eco City Shariah-compliant

An attractive booster to earnings and RNAV. We are excited on SP Setia's purchase of the remaining 40% stake in KL Eco City (KLEC). This non-cash acquisition will immediately boost SPSB's earnings by 0.6-1% and RNAV/sh by 8 sen. All it would cost SP Setia is 19.4m new shares, which is a mere 1.1% increase of its existing share base. We upgrade our forecasts by 0.3-1.9%. Reiterate Buy with a higher RM5.00 target price (+24 sen; 10% premium to RM4.53 RNAV).

Malaysia Airports Holdings RM6.50: Buy
2Q11: Expect good result

Strong momentum continues. MAHB will release its 2Q11 results on 28 July. 2Q is seasonally the weakest quarter for the year. Based on the operating statistics published, we expect a core net profit (less forex translation and all other non-cash items) of RM110.5m (+24.5% YoY, -1.4% QoQ). Maintain Buy, with a higher DCF-based target price of RM7.55, after imputing for a higher passenger growth of 10% in 2011 (previously 8%). Our new TP offers undemanding 15.2x 2012 earnings.

The FBM KLCI fell 5.46 points to close at 1,559.60 yesterday. Its resistance areas of 1,559 and 1,574 will cap market gains, whilst the obvious support areas are located at 1,543 and 1,552.
