Sheng Siong Group (SSG SP)

1Q24: Results In Line; Solid Start To The Year


SSG’s 1Q24 earnings of S$36m (+9% yoy) were largely in line with expectations, forming 27% of our full-year estimate. Revenue rose 6% yoy on comparable same-store sales growth, while gross margin expanded 0.6ppt to 29.4% on a better sales mix. As the cost of living rises, consumers may shift toward SSG’s value-for-money products. SSG also continues to actively seek store opening opportunities in areas where it lacks a presence.

Hartalega Holdings (HART MK)

4QFY24: Defining Moments


Harta’s 4QFY24 results reflect sales volume expansion and marginally higher ASP, but margins were compressed due to delayed cost pass-through. Removing exceptional items, core net profit fell 25% qoq to RM1.8m. Nevertheless, FY25 prospects remain bright on a demand uptick from a customer’s restocking cycle, consistent ASP hikes, and efficiency refinement. The recent deterioration of US-China trade tensions also adds to the positive equation. Downgrade to HOLD with unchanged target price of RM3.61.

The strong sales performance was driven by the launch of Lumina Grand, a 512-unit Executive Condominium (EC) project at Bukit Batok West Avenue 5. 269 units (53%) were sold during the launch weekend in January 2024 and to date, 381 units (74%) have been sold.

Consensus target price stands at S$7.39, representing a 26.3% upside from current share price. We continue to like CDL for it’s recovering hospitality business, their cheap valuations (RNAV is at between $17.21-$19.46) and continued share buy backs which signals that the company is undervalued. We continue to maintain an Accumulate rating recommendation on CDL.
