Using the medium of product placement advertising, Besunyen establishes its positive image in the diverse and oft-watched platform of a popular TV drama.
Moreover, the well-watched show substantially improves the brand recognition of Besunyen among consumers and increases demand for BSY’s products.

Bocom: VINDA ‘Top Pick’ in HK consumer space
Bocom International gives tissue and sanitary household play Vinda International (HK: 3331) with “Top Pick” status among Hong Kong’s listed consumer sector firms.
Its target price on Vinda is 15.00 hkd (Vinda recently 12.94).
Heading into 2014, the research house reaffirms its “Outperform” recommendation on the China Consumer Staples sector, with a preference for 1) baby staples given the new momentum amid China’s new two-child policy nationwide and 2) re-rating stocks leveraged to post-deal integration.
“We anticipate 6%-22% EPS CAGR in CY13-15E in our coverage space, led by revenue growth on channel penetration and an improved product portfolio.
“We recommend ‘Buy’ on Vinda and Hengan (HK: 1044); ‘LT-Buy’ on Biostime (HK: 1112) and Want Want (HK: 151); ‘Neutral’ on Tingyi (HK: 322) and Bawang (HK: 1338); and ‘Sell’ on Uni-President China (HK: 220).”
The research house said China’s relaxation of the one-child policy starting from 2014 has a profound impact on the nation, boosting demand for baby staples (especially diapers and infant milk formula) in the coming decade.
“Hengan, Biostime and Want Want, via their diversified product portfolios, sufficient capacity and nationwide distribution, and are adroitly positioned to capture the incremental demand from current favorable policies.”
