We continue to favor Civmec given its robust order books which will provide good sales and earnings
visibility over the next 2 years. We also note that management remains confident of sustaining its steady improvements in profit margins given economies of scale as well as productivity improvements via automations and cost efficiencies.

is also confident of meeting consensus expectations of $60mln profit this year, translating to undemanding forward PE of only 7x while annualized dividend yield is an attractive 5.8% and price to book is 1x. Earnings yield of Civmec is a robust 13.7% compared to risk free rates of 5%. Bloomberg consensus target price of $1.25 implies a potential upside of 38%. Civmec’s net cash position and low capex budget provides them with flexibility to continue to raise their dividends (which has been on a rising trend in the past 5 years), hence we maintain “Accumulate” rating on Civmec. (we see
the change in domicile of the company to Australia as a catalyst for securing more defense contracts from the Australian government).



REITs – Singapore 3Q23 Round-up:
Gaining A Stronger Footing

Results from the 20 S-REITs under our coverage were mostly in line with forecasts. The hospitality sub-sector registered the strongest NPI growth averaging 26% yoy. We saw resiliency from Singapore with positive rental reversions across retail, office and industrial properties despite external uncertainties. We focus on S-REITs with resilient balance sheets that could weather a protracted period of elevated interest rates. Maintain OVERWEIGHT. BUY FCT, FEHT, KREIT, LREIT and MINT. 



Greatech (GREATEC MK) 9M23:
In Line; Record Orderbook A Positive Surprise

Results were in line on record high revenue and earnings. The record-high orderbook of RM1.07b (mostly from solar, followed by EV and life science) was a positive surprise and is expected to last until 1H25. Meanwhile, expansion is on track with the group scouting for new lands to support aggressive uptake from solar, e-mobility and life science customers. We trimmed 2023 earnings by 5% for house-keeping purposes. Maintain BUY on Greatech. Target price: RM6.20.

October Headline ADT Slumped To Lowest Level In Four Years


October headline ADT plunged 12.7% mom to HK$78.8b mainly due to weak investor sentiment as concerns over the economic recovery momentum persisted. Although November ADT rebounded 14.4% after the levy cut announcement, it still remains below the HK$100b level. Nonetheless, we still expect the potential year-end rally and earlier rate cut bets to contribute to improved ADT and stock price performance. Maintain BUY. Target price: HK$370.00.
