Construction: Overweight
MRT: Pro-gressing

Positive developments. Prasanara's release of the names of 28 companies shortlisted for the mass rapid transit (MRT), Sg Buloh-Kajang line elevated works portion is a positive move in buidling investors' confidence on the government's commitment in moving the project forward. The names are not totally new to us, except perhaps for the not listed ones. First works are expected in early-2012, we estimate. We maintain our Overweight call on the sector.

Sunway REIT RM1.07: Buy
Short-term pain, long-term gain

Maintain Buy. SunREIT's RM167.3m FY11 core net profit came in within expectations. 6.6sen FY11 DPU was also in line. We do not expect significant contributions from the newly-acquired Sunway Putra Place (SPP) over the short-term as it would likely take 1-2 years for renovation works. We maintain our FY12-13 earnings forecasts and introduce FY14 estimates. Target price is RM1.18 (+3 sen) as we roll over our base year to 2012.

MBM Resources RM2.97: Hold
Less sanguine over outlook Shariah-compliant

The effect of the global supply chain disruption kicks in. 1H results are tracking expectation (47% of full-year forecast) on the back of a softer QoQ performance. Vehicle sales and earnings in 2Q, as forewarned, were affected by the global supply chain disruption post the Japan’s 11 March earthquake and tsunami. Going forward, we opine that this issue will continue to have an adverse effect on MBM's 2H performance. Maintain Hold with a RM3.10 target price.

Notion VTEC RM1.95: Buy
Earnings on track Shariah-compliant

Results in line. 9MFY11 net profit of RM34m (+17% YoY) made up 71% and 76% of our and consensus full-year forecast. We maintain our Buy call as valuation is inexpensive at 4.1x CY12 PER, backed by a solid growth trend (38% 2-year net profit CAGR). Our RM2.40 TP pegs NVB on 4.5x FY11 EV/EBITDA, reflecting regional peers' (ex-Japan) valuations. Our TP also indicates an undemanding forward PER of 5.1x, significantly below the 8x average for our small-cap universe.

The FBM KLCI fell 4.06 points to close at 1,476.46 yesterday. Its resistance areas of 1,479 and 1,530 will cap market gains, whilst the obvious support areas are located at 1,423 and 1,475.
