1Q23F CNP to grow despite lower NIM

■ Despite the potential qoq compression in 1Q23F NIM, we expect continuous CNP growth for banks in 1Q23F, due to the absence of Cukai Makmur (CM).
■ We project CNP growth of 17.8% for banks in 2023F due to the nonrecurrence of CM taxation and strong growth in non-interest income.
■ We reiterate our Overweight call on banks given the stronger non-interest income growth in 2023F and potential write-back in management overlay.

Enough Muscles For Shopee-ng?

SEA’s share price has appreciated more than 10% since it turned profitable for the first time in 4Q22. While the e-commerce segment’s GMV may slow in the coming quarters, we expect its margin to continue improving from increasing commission fees and expansion of its own logistic services. In addition, the digital financial services could leverage on Shopee’s strong user base to provide more effective underwriting and better offerings. Maintain BUY and target price of US$94.34.

Prudential (2378 HK)
2022: Results Below Expectations, Better Recovery Ahead

Pru’s 2022 results missed our expectations, mainly affected by rising interest rates. In 2M23, Pru recorded double-digit APE growth, with the reopening of the Hong KongChina border expected to drive Pru's premium growth, resulting in a strong growth in new business value. The Board also suggested a second interim dividend of 13.04 US cents per share. Maintain BUY with target price reduced to HK$141.90 as we trim our 2023/24 NBP and EV forecasts.
