Genting Singapore (GENS SP)

2Q18: VIP Volume Growth Remained Strong But Mass Market Was Weaker


GENS’ 2Q18 results were within expectations. VIP volume growth remained strong but this was offset by a low VIP win rate and soft mass market. We expect GENS’ valuation to trend up over time on the development of its Japan IR bidding, given its good winning changes backed, its experience in operating in a highly-regulated casino environment and track record in contributing to the country’s tourism. Maintain BUY. Target price: S$1.38.

UOB: Good company, bad trade situation


UOB delivered 2Q18 net earnings of S$1077m, +28% YoY and +10% QoQ, and better than the street’s estimate of S$976m. Management has declared an interim dividend of 50 cents (versus 35 cents in 2Q17). Together with the 2Q results, UOB also announced that it is launching its Digital Bank which aims to build a customer base of 3-5m in the next 5 years operating at a steady state cost-to-income ratio of 35%. Management is guiding for high single-digit loans growth, and higher rates ahead will be positive for NIM and management is expecting NIM to hold at current level (1.83%) or higher. NPL ratio is likely to stay stable at around 1.7%. We have fine-tuned our earnings estimates for FY18, raising it marginally from S$4007m to S$4030m. Our fair value estimate moves up from S$31.02 to S$32.09. BUY


UOL Group Ltd (UOL SP)

Well-Positioned to Weather the Storm


Maintain BUY; Top sector pick

While 1H18 EBIT of SGD310m made up just 33% of our full-year estimate, we expect stronger development earnings in 2H18 will help achieve our forecast. With competitive land costs and manageable inventory levels, we believe UOL is well-positioned to weather the residential headwinds. Asset enhancements for its commercial properties are medium-term value drivers. We lower our RNAV by 1% to SGD11.75 to reflect the latest market value of its stake in UIC. Consequently, we trim our TP 2% to SGD8.80 based on an unchanged RNAV discount of 25%. Maintain BUY.
