STRATEGY – Singapore Alpha Picks: Outperformed In 3Q19; Add Yangzijang

While the FSSTI retreated 6.1% in 3Q19, our alpha picks gained 2.0% in the quarter, led by our small/mid-cap picks (Fu Yu: +11.5%, Koufu: +5.8%) and our short call on SATS (-11.2%).

For September, our portfolio rose 0.9% mom, surpassing the FSSTI’s gain of 0.4% mom; notable outperformers for the month were Fu Yu and CDREIT.

For October, we add Yangzijiang as we believe the recent share price weakness is unwarranted and it is currently trading at an inexpensive valuation of 0.56x 2019F P/B.

ACTION
RenYuanLin 4.2016Ren Yuan Lin, chairman, YZJ. NextInsight file photoAdding Yangzijiang to our October portfolio. We add Yangzijiang as we see the slump in share price in August post news reports of the chairman assisting investigations in China to be unwarranted, given that it does not involve the company or its funds.

Meanwhile, mid-term shipbuilding outlook appears positive.

On a valuation basis, it is currently trading at 0.56x 2019F P/B which we view as inexpensive as it is -2SD below the company’s 5-year historical P/B.
