It's a rare phenomenon: Two brokers initiated coverage of an S-chip in the past 2 weeks  -- China Sunsine. While one cannot totally ignore the S-chip stigma, China Sunsine has a remarkable profitability record and a perceived wide business moat and market dominance.

The company is just weeks away from announcing its FY2107 results which, going by the analysts' forecasts, are record numbers. Phillip Securities forecasts RMB344 m in net profit for FY2017, up from RM222 m in FY2016. CIMB's forecast is RMB291 m.

If you take the average profit forecast, then the PE of the stock ($1.11) currently is 8-9X. Looks attractive, which is why the analysts say 'buy' and have set target prices with significant upside.
