Dairy Farm Int'l

Still attractively priced for the medium-term

 

■ Various HK retail sales categories saw mom improvements in Nov 20 despite still declining yoy.

■ DFI’s valuation looks attractive to us and is still below long-term average. We expect earnings to improve as a Covid-19 vaccine emerges in FY21F.

■ We reiterate our Add call with a higher TP of US$5.50, based on 22x P/E (previously 19.5x) and after rolling forward to FY22F EPS.

Geely Automobile (175 HK) - Recovery gathers momentum

 

As one of China’s leading auto-manufacturers, Geely differentiates itself through the successful development and launch of its own lower-priced models. Despite intense competition, Geely has seen steady domestic retail market share gains over the past decade to ~6.5%, with sales of more than 1.3 mn cars in 2019. Given the highly competitive, cyclical and capital-intensive characteristics of the global auto manufacturing industry, we are selective within the sector. Within the China auto space, we favour Geely for its stronger financial health and solid pipeline of new products, which includes new energy and electrified vehicles. The Chinese government’s 14th Five-year plan includes a target to raise NEV sales penetration to 20% by 2025 (from 2020E’s ~5-6% level) which implies stronger growth prospects and more intense competition ahead. Amongst the traditional auto manufacturers, Geely is expected to be one of the key runners in the race, which should help to offset potential future decline in internal combustion engine (ICE) sales. The impending merger with Volvo should solidify its global presence and reap R&D and cost benefits over the medium term. BUY
