JP Morgan has an “Overweight” recommendation on Anxin-China Holdings (HK: 1149).

The research house’s target price on the maker of electronic work safety and security monitoring systems and equipment is 3.50 hkd.

"We remain bullish on the long-term growth potential of Anxin-China, a key beneficiary of the growing work safety and public safety industry,” said JP Morgan.

On 15 November, Anxin-China announced it won bids of ‘Safe City Projects’ in five cities/counties in China.

“We estimate that the total contract size could exceed 100 million yuan, assuming 20-30 million yuan per site.

“This is the first batch of ISS (Intelligent Safety Systems) project wins for the company and we believe the progress is on track,” JP Morgan said.

The new committee will have a domestic focus and could increase coordination between the various wings of China’s security bureaucracy, split now between the police, military, intelligence and diplomatic services.

“It heightens the importance of national security and public security,” the research house added.
