Genting Bhd (GENT MK)
Inked 2 agreements with Chinese parties
Maintain BUY and MYR5.84 SOP-TP
GENT will expand into the independent power producer (IPP) industry in China and has separately commissioned a Chinese contractor to construct a floating liquefied natural gas (FLNG) facility. Our earnings estimates and TP are unchanged as details are lacking. That said, we believe they will be long term earnings and value accretive. On the latter development, our ‘back of the envelope’ calculations indicate that it could accrete MYR1.68/shr to our SOP-TP (assuming nil holding company discount).




Selective opportunities


Consolidating growth after 1Q24. Maintain NEUTRAL Regional NIMs have peaked and higher-for-longer interest rates are likely to delay a fresh credit cycle. While asset quality remains benign, expect provisioning costs to be elevated as the sector navigates geo-political and high interest rate uncertainty. We expect earnings momentum to consolidate regionally without clear visibility on rate cuts and fiscal stimulus in key markets such as ID and TH. Strong balance sheets and provisioning cover gives downside protection. Maintain NEUTRAL with MY (upside risks to growth, good dividend yields) and VN (structural growth, index upgrade catalyst) as relative preferences. Top picks: BMRI, BBCA, AMMB, CIMB, DBS, TTB, KTB, TCB, VCB.
