Singapore Technology

Off to a good start


Decent start to 2021 Reports and announcements of capex plans for various chipmakers corroborate the view of continued upswing for semiconductor equipment spending (positive for UMS, Frencken). Meanwhile, AEM is acquiring CEI, and we believe more M&A may be on the cards. While Malaysia has announced MCO, we see limited impact to our coverage as manufacturing is an essential industry. We stay POSITIVE with BUYs on UMS, Frencken, Venture and AEM.

All Engines Firing To Deliver Good Earnings


We raise our 4Q20 core net profit forecast to US$350m-380m on better-than-expected contribution from YKA.
