Bloomberg reported that Singapore’s financial regulator banned DBS Group Holdings Ltd / DBS ($33.03, up 0.18) from acquiring new business ventures for six months and the bank will hold senior management accountable after a spate of digital banking service outages. The changes will ensure that the bank focuses on restoring the resilience of its digital banking services, the Monetary Authority of Singapore said in a statement Wednesday. The actions followed repeated and prolonged disruptions of DBS’ banking services this year, including just last month. The MAS also barred Southeast Asia’s largest bank from paring local branch and ATM networks during the period. Since early 2022, the regulator has imposed penalties on DBS including higher capital requirements totaling S$1.6 billion for similar service disruptions. “Senior management will be held accountable, and this will be reflected in their compensation,” DBS Chairman Peter Seah said in a statement. 


MAS’s directive to prevent DBS from making any acquisitions over the next 6 months and not allow the bank to reduce ATM or bank branches for 6 months is a relief. We believe that while IT and compliance costs will likely increase for DBS, it would not detract from their ability to capitalize on the higher for longer rate environment. We maintain our “Accumulate” rating as we see possibility of upside in dividend payments (48 cents/quarter) and also potential special dividends from the $3billion in excess capital. Valuations are reasonable at 8.5x PE and normalized dividend yield 5.8%.


Frasers Logistics & Commercial Trust ($1.04, unchanged) reported revenue of S$212.8 million and Adjusted Net Property Income of S$155.5 million for 2HFY23, representing decreases of 0.8% and 4.0% respectively, from S$214.5 million and S$162.1 million in the second half of FY2022 (“2HFY22”). 


FLCT’s market cap stands at S$3.9bln and currently trades at 21x forward PE and 0.82x P/B, with a dividend yield of 6.8% and gearing of 30.2%. The Bloomberg consensus target price stands at S$1.35, representing 30% upside from current share price. While upside looks attractive, the REIT sector continues to face headwinds such as higher for longer interest rates, inflationary cost pressures and also demand issues due to macro-economic weaknesses.
