    SINGAPORE (May 15): OCBC Investment Research is keeping its “buy” call on Wilmar International with an unchanged fair value estimate of $3.51 despite headwinds in the near-term.

    This comes after Wilmar saw a 40.6% drop in earnings to US$203.3 million ($273.0 million) for 1Q18 on the back of seasonal sugar losses and a difficult operating environment in the Tropical Oils business.

    For the quarter ended March, group revenue grew 5.7% to US$11.17 billion on stronger sales volume recorded by the Oilseeds & Grains business, further aided by higher commodity prices.

    The way OCBC’s lead analyst Low Pei Han sees it, there are currently more positives than negatives for Wilmar.

    “The Tropical Oils segment will likely perform better in subsequent quarters,” Low says in a Monday report. “Production for this year may be about 10% higher with more favourable weather, and refining margins may improve in the next few quarters.”

    While Wilmar cautioned that any prolonged standoff between China and the US would affect the utilisation of its crushing plants, Low believes this would be partially mitigated by better performance from its flour and rice businesses.

    “We estimate that the rice and flour business currently accounts for more than 10% of the oilseeds and grains segment, but management aims to grow this segment which has relatively more stable margins,” the analyst adds.

    At the same time, Low opines that Wilimar’s Australia sugar milling business is likely to pick up from 2Q18.

    Low also notes that the group’s listing of its China business remains on track, and is likely to happen in mid-2019 or 2H19.

    “Meanwhile, the group remains on the lookout for acquisition opportunities,” Low adds, noting that its Adani Wilmar joint venture has put in a bid for debt-ridden edible oil firm Ruchi Soya.

    Dow up for 7 or 8 consecutive days ler.
    With each succeeding day of UP, the probability of a DOWN increases.

    DBS...

    Last High was 31.28.
    Last Low was 28.51.
    This pullback was $2.77.
    Using fibonacci retracement levels to assist us to gauge whether she has found her bottom at 28.51, the most commonly
    used fibonacci retracement levels are:

    23.6% - $29.16 (already surpassed)
    38.2% - $29.57 (havent reached yet)
    50.0% - $29.89
    61.8% - $30.22

    It is quite common for a dead cat bounce, ie. the technical rebound which started at 28.51, to reach 23.6% or even 38.2% of the
    previous move. The previous move was a downmove from 31.28 to 28.51, a move of $2.77. We use $2.77 to compute the various
    fibonacci retracement levels... 23.6% of $2.77 is 65 cts. Add 65 cts to the Last Low of $28.51 and you get $29.16. And so on.

    If the technical rebound is strong, it can even surpass the 38.2% retracement level but may end before reaching the 50% level
    which is at $29.89.

    Should the technical rebound cross the 50% retracement mark and is accompanied by a surge in volume, aggressive traders who
    are willing to assume the highest risk to get the best seats in the recovery train will start to buy some first. And they will continue to
    monitor volume and momentum to see if the upmove is strong and sustainable. If their conclusion is that the upmove is strong, they
    will continue to add more positions on the way up. Less aggressive traders who are risk-averse and who want to play it safe will
    wait for the rebound to approach the 61.8% retracement level or cross it before they accept that the upmove is no longer a dead
    cat bounce but a real recovery.

    SINGAPORE (May 11): ST Engineering reported a 17.8% rise in 1Q18 earnings to $117.7 million from $99.9 million a year ago in 1Q17.

    Revenue for the quarter came in 9% higher at $1.65 billion from $1.51 billion a year ago, mainly attributable to higher revenue contribution from the group’s Aeropace, Electronics and Land Systems sectors, but partially offset by lower contribution from its Marine and Others sectors.

    The Aerospace sector saw revenue climb 9% y-o-y to $599 million, as all business groups contributed to the improved performance, especially from Component/Engine Repair and Overhaul and Aircraft Maintenance & Modification business groups.

    Revenue from the Electronics sector jumped 22% y-o-y to $605 million, from higher project revenue recognition from all three of its business groups.

    Land Systems sector’s revenue of $281 million was 3% higher, from higher project revenue recognition from Automotive business group.

    Marine sector revenue of $150 million came in 16% lower as revenue recognised from the Shipbuilding and Shiprepair business groups declined.

    Lower revenue under “Others” was mainly attributable to lower sales from Miltope.

    As cost of sales increased by 10.3% to $1.32 billion, gross profit for 1Q18 stood at $325.9 million, 4.1% higher than $313.1 million in the previous year.

    Administrative expenses increased 6.2% to $122.2 million, while other operating expenses were 11.5% up y-o-y at $32.2 million.

    Distribution and selling expenses declined by 12.7% to $49.4 million, mainly from lower allowance for doubtful debts for Aerospace and Marine sectors, partially offset by higher expenses incurred for the biennial Singapore Airshow.

    Net other income fell 26.1% to $2.63 million, mainly attributable to loss on liquidation of a subsidiary, partially offset by higher government grants

    Net finance costs decreased by 59.1% to $2.19 million from $5.37 million a year ago.

    The group ended 1Q18 with an order book of $13.4 billion, and it expects to deliver about $3.2 billion in the remaining months of 2018.

    Vincent Chong, president and CEO of ST Eng, says, “We started the year with healthy revenue growth and net profit. We also secured numerous contracts including Smart City projects in the past quarter. With a strong order book, the group remains on track for steady growth.”
