Declining yields

Singapore Telecommunications (ST SP)

1HFY24: Results in Line, Higher Dividend Policy


For 1HFY24, Singtel reported a higher underlying net profit of S$1.1b (+11.6% yoy), driven by higher contributions from its growth engines and regional associates. The group’s ROIC improved from 5% in FY22 to 8.3% in FY23 and is on track to hit low double-digit ROIC in the medium term, backed by the divestment of Trustwave and cost optimisation initiatives (S$600m by FY26). Positively, Singtel has raised dividend payout to 70-90% of underlying net profit. Maintain BUY. Target price: S$3.15.

CapitaLand Investment (CLI SP)

Short-term Headwinds But There Should Still Be A Growth Story In 2024


CLI reported a weaker-than-expected 3Q23 business update and, with the exception of its lodging business, guided for a difficult medium-term outlook with fair value losses and impairments likely at its 2023 annual results in Feb 24. In the longer term, CLI’s slight pivot away toward Southeast Asia and India with its inaugural wellness & healthcare fund should provide an interesting avenue of growth. Maintain BUY. EPS is lowered for 2023-25, and target price reduced to S$3.90 (previously S$4.25).
