Recommend BUY with raised TP of US$0.32 after HPH Trust (HPHT) smashed our FY20 earnings and dividend forecasts. 2H20 earnings more than doubled y-o-y to help HPHT post a 57% y-o-y increase in FY20 net profit to HK$831m on lower interest costs, greater cost efficiencies and government support. FY20 DPU of 12 HKcts was 33% above our forecast.

This higher level of profitability is sustainable. We expect FY21F earnings to be flat from FY20 due to much lower government support offset by some improvement in throughput volumes. That said, the majority of the improvements seen in FY20 should be sustainable as they stem from greater cost efficiencies as well as lower finance costs, especially with interest rates expected to remain low in FY21.

Huge room to raise dividends beyond FY21. While HPHT is likely to maintain a DPU of 12 HKcts for FY21F with a flattish earnings outlook, we believe there is room for DPU to be raised as the Trust’s gearing is now substantially lower than a few years ago. Even if earnings stay flat, this is a higher level of core profitability than in FY18 when DPU was 17 HKcts, and when the debt repayment programme was already ongoing.
