9M19 ahead; setting up for FY20E growth; BUY

Reiterate BUY with higher ROE-g/COE-g TP of SGD2.12 (4.1x blended FY19-20E P/B, prev: 3.2x), as we raise FY19-21E EPS by 13-71%, factoring in:


Share price: 


i) AEM’s higher FY19E revenue guidance;

ii) stronger-than-expected HDMT momentum; and

iii) inclusion of contributions from hybrid project and cable testers for Huawei in FY20-21E.

9M19 PATMI already reached 95%/93% of our/consensus’ FY19E estimates.

Despite high-base effects, FY20E dynamics appear favourable for further growth.

Strong FY20E guidance would be a catalyst, while weak demand for key customer’s chips would be a key risk.
