DBS Research 2017-07-21: Riding On Improving Sentiment On Property.

Keppel closes in on delivery of world’s first FLNG vessel conversion. A testament to Keppel; smooth operation of this unit will boost confidence of potential customers.

Upgrade to BUY with higher TP of S$7.60, after raising valuation peg for property segment from 0.85x to 1.0x P/B, in line with larger-cap Singapore developer peers.

OCBC Investment 2017-07-21: First Acquisition Of The Year.

First REIT announced that it has entered into a conditional sale and purchase agreement on the proposed acquisition of an integrated property comprises Siloam Hospitals Buton with ancillary healthcare-related space and a connected retail mall, Lippo Plaza Buton.

As this proposed acquisition only comprises ~2.2% of the existing portfolio, we prefer to maintain our existing forecast for now and await further potential accretive acquisitions in 2H17.

UOB Kay Hian 2017-07-21: 2Q17 Active Asset Recycling Underway.

#ART's 2Q17 results exceeded our expectations due to better-than-expected contribution from recent acquisitions.

Ascott Residence Trust is actively seeking potential acquisition targets in the US, Australia, China, Europe and Vietnam. Management remains unconcerned about the impact of competition from #Airbnb from the recently-loosened regulations, noting that their respective markets are disparate.

Maintain HOLD with a higher target price of S$1.18.

DBS Research 2017-07-21: New Orders Deferred, Not Deterred.

Maintain BUY; TP raised to S$2.30, based on higher valuation peg of 1.8x FY17 P/BV in anticipation of stronger order flow ahead.

We continue to see rerating catalysts stemming from:
1) #SMM as a pure play to ride the oil-price recovery towards 2H;
2) sizeable new orders for non-drilling solutions, in particular Gravifloat’s modularised LNG terminals;
3) the conclusion of jackup sales;
4) the reactivation of Sete’s projects; and
5) SMM being a potential M&A play arising from a consolidation of Singapore yards.

#SingaporePost Ltd (SPOST SP) -
Maybank Kim Eng 2017-07-21: Will Take Time To Deliver.

Key takeaways from #SingPost’s AGM:
1) management is implementing a turnaround plan for TradeGlobal, but it will take time as there is a lot to be done;
2) the new CEO, Paul Coutts will update the business strategy in the coming few weeks;
3) integration of acquired businesses and all assets will be the first priority.

While management is positive about the long-term potential of SingPost, the transformation journey could take time. Maintain HOLD.

Ascott Residence Trust #ART's 1H17 DPU of 3.36 Scts (-11% yoy) formed 51% of our full-year forecast, which we consider to be above our expectations.

OCBC Investment 2017-07-21: Healthy Profits From Other Core Segments.

Interim dividend of S$0.08/share was declared, better than our expectations.

Looking ahead, KEP expects the property division to recognise profits from about 5,860 of overseas homes sold as they are progressively completed from 3Q17 through to 2019. In Singapore, management sees the market bottoming with better prospects ahead. Keppel Capital aims to double its S$25b AUM over the next five years.

Maintain BUY with S$7.36 fair value estimate on Keppel Corp.
