MISC RM7.10: Sell
Brace for further impact Shariah-compliant

Poor visibility. We cut our 2012 EPS forecast by a further 19% post analyst briefing for Apr-Jun 2011 results. Visibility continues to be poor, extending up to 2013. We do not see a recovery in the liner, chemical and petroleum divisions, hit by supply overhang and depressed rates. This offsets positives from the other divisions: heavy engineering, offshore, and LNG shipping. Our TP of RM6.44 remains unchanged, based on a 15% discount to our SOP valuation.

Malaysia Airports Holdings RM6.45: Buy
Higher charges, finally

Positive surprise. MAHB has confirmed that it has been granted the approval to impose higher charges on: (1) international passengers (passenger service charge or PSC); (2) landing for aircraft; and (3) parking for aircraft. This will take effect on 15 September 2011 and will positively impact future earnings. MAHB is our top aviation pick as it is well placed to enjoy the longer term growth in air travel. Maintain Buy, with an unchanged target price of RM7.55/share DCF-based.

Hock Seng Lee RM1.46: Buy
A new water job Shariah-compliant

Small replenishment; maintain Buy. HSL's RM45.7m job win will lift its outstanding order book to RM1.15b, and contribute RM5.5m in net profit into 2012, we estimate. We maintain our earnings forecasts having imputed job win assumptions earlier. We are still positive on HSL for an exposure to Sarawak construction. Our target price is unchanged at RM2.30 based on 12x 2012 PER. Share price has fallen back to single digit valuations alongside the weak broader market; the stock is looking more attractive at current levels.

AirAsia RM3.64: Hold
Challenging 2Q11 Shariah-compliant

Yields, fuel and Firefly. We expect AirAsia's 2Q11 to show a marginal YoY profit growth buoyed exclusively by its Thai associate. We expect the Malaysian and Indonesian operations to exhibit profit drop due to 28% rise in fuel prices and soft yield environment, consistent to the industry and further exacerbated by Firefly’s jet operations services to East Malaysia. We maintain our Hold call at RM3.36 target price, based on 9.0x 2011 PER which is 10% discount to global LCCs’ PER.

Malaysian Airline System RM1.66: Buy
2Q11: Expect losses

Yields, fuel and Japan. MAS will release its 2Q11 results on 23 Aug. 2Q11 is expected to be loss-making due to the impact of 28% higher fuel price YoY and some impact from the MENA civil unrest and Japanese natural disasters. Despite this negative environment, we advice investors to overlook this quarter as the Company’s future is much better now with stabilizing fuel price, new aircraft benefits and the tie-up with AirAsia. We maintain our Buy recommendation with a target price of RM2.70, pegged to 9.0x 2012 PER - on par with global peers.

UMW Holdings RM7.22: Hold
O&G sees red, auto loses traction Shariah-compliant

Challenging mid-term prospects. UMW's 2Q underperformance validates our contrarian view and concerns over its O&G and auto operations. Issues like the supply chain from Japan's March earthquake and tsunami and anti-dumping effect will persist in 2H. Maintain Hold with a RM7.20 target price, based on 12x 2011 EPS.

TSH Resources RM3.15: Buy
Windfall harvest Shariah-compliant

Outperformed. TSH's 1H11 net profit of RM60m (+165% YoY) accounted for 59% and 54% of our and consensus full year estimates respectively. TSH outperformed expectations backed by higher than expected FFB production. We raise our 2011 earnings forecast by 7.1% but trimmed 2012-13 forecasts by 0.6-0.7% on higher wages assumption by RM200 per month for Malaysian plantation workers. We maintain our Buy call with an adjusted TP of RM3.81 (15x 2012 PER; previously RM3.84) on the lowered earnings.

Eversendai Corporation RM1.68: Buy
Buy ahead of job-flows Shariah-compliant

Results show strong growth. 1H11 net profit of RM57m was 46% of our full-year forecast and 49% of consensus. We initiate coverage on Eversendai with a Buy and TP of RM2.17 (based on 12x CY12 PER). Key attributes: (i) job-flow prospects are bright and we expect major wins in the next 6 months; (ii) Eversendai has built itself an above-industry margin business franchise yet valuation of 9x 2012 PER is at a 30% discount to big-cap peers; (iii) our belief that pump-priming is an obvious and politically easy tool in addressing macro-economic slump.

Star Publications (Malaysia) RM3.39: Hold
Revises terms of disposal for Section 13 land Shariah-compliant

More favourable terms. Star's new agreement with JAKS Island Circle (JIC) to raise the consideration for its Section 13 land sale by RM24m to RM135m is positive. The land disposal will add 14 sen/sh in value by end-2014. We however maintain our earnings estimates as the timing for the gain recognition is beyond our estimates horizon. We also maintain our Hold call and RM3.54 DCF-based TP.

The FBM KLCI added a meagre 0.31-points and closed at 1,483.98 last Friday. The weaker support areas for the FBM KLCI are located in the 1,423 to 1,477-zone. The next resistance levels of 1,483 and 1,597 will see heavy selling and liquidation activities.
