♦ Maybank Kim Eng says 'buy', tp $1.15
Share price: 
90 c

Analyst: Gregory Yap

At c.20% off the peak, Innovalues ticks all the boxes for a fundamental buy.

Trading at <11x FY17 P/E (>20% below peers), we forecast 30% core EPS growth with 4-5% yield this year. 

2Q16 confirmed an improving sales trend with better margins. Catalysts lie in dividend upside and a potential 30% takeout premium.

No interim dividend was declared this time due to on-going M&A discussions, which suggests talks are at an advanced stage. BUY, TP SGD1.15 @ 13.5x FY17 PE, in line with peers.

DBS Vickers says: Upgrade to BUY with a higher TP of S$1.07

Analyst: Paul Yong, CFA

Share price: 
90 c

Upgrade to BUY with a higher TP of S$1.07 as we roll forward our earnings base to FY17F; current valuation appears attractive for a potential M&A play.

Following 2Q16 results, which were largely in line with our expectations, we only trim our estimates for FY16F/17F slightly by 0.8%/4.3% as we remain cautiously optimistic of a stronger 2H16.

After rolling forward our earnings base to FY17F (from blended FY16/17F previously), we arrive at a higher TP of S$1.07, which offers potential upside of 19%.

As prices have corrected by almost 20% over the past month - from a high of S$1.11 to S$0.895 currently, we see current valuation of 10x FY17F PE as attractive for a potential M&A play.
