Image result for buy sell hold


First Resources (FR SP) 3Q results within our expectation


Expect potentially better results in the final quarter 3Q17 core earnings met 23%/21% of our (within)/consensus (below) fullyear estimates. Results would have been better had it not for the sharp inventory build-up and lower-than-expected CPO ASP achieved during the quarter. We maintain our EPS forecasts pending an update. Maintain HOLD and unchanged TP of SGD2.04 on 17x 2017 PER (5-year mean).

Wilmar: Steady performance


Wilmar reported a 0.4% YoY rise in revenue to US$11.1b in 3Q17, supported by increased sales from Oilseeds & Grains. Net profit fell 5.7% YoY to US$370.0m while core net profit decreased 15.9% to US$323.7m in 3Q17. Results were within expectations; 9M17 revenue and net profit accounted for 74% and 70% of our full year estimates, respectively. The good performance in Oilseeds & Grains and strong contributions from associates were offset by weaker results in the Tropical Oils and Sugar businesses. Looking ahead, management expects the good performance in the Oilseeds & Grains segment to continue into 4Q17, with crush margins and volume likely to remain positive. Performance of the other major business segments is expected to be “satisfactory”. We tweak our estimates and roll over our valuations to FY18 earnings, and our FV estimate eases from S$3.66 to S$3.51. Maintain HOLD.

■ Maintain Add with higher TP of S$1.10 (pegged to 11x CY19F P/E) for higher EPS and valuation rollover. Synergistic M&As are a potential key catalyst.
