#SingaporeREITs -
OCBC Investment 2018-05-23: Rising Yields Negate Improving Industry Fundamentals.

Looking at the recently concluded 1QCY18 results season, 19 out of the 23 S-REITs under our coverage reported results which met our expectations, while 4 missed. The average DPU growth came in at -2.6% on a y-o-y basis.

Despite the #SREITs' share price correction YTD, valuations are still stretched, in our view.

Maintain NEUTRAL on the S-REITs sector, with a selective stock picking approach remaining key at this juncture.

#SingaporeTelecommunications (ST SP) -
UOB Kay Hian 2018-05-24: Optus Benefits From 3 Nationwide Outages At Telstra.

The 3 nationwide outages suffered by #Telstra in May will dent its reputation for network quality and reliability built over the years. #Optus is likely to maintain its growth momentum and continue to gain market share at the expense of Telstra.

Optus has enhanced its network coverage and gained traction in regional Australia. It also differentiates through bundling captivating content, such as EPL, NatGeo and Cricket Australia.

Optus is the largest contributor to earnings accounting for 28.5% of #Singtel group PBT in 4QFY18. Maintain BUY and target price of S$4.22.

#Yongnam Holdings -
CGS-CIMB Research 2018-05-23: Major North-south Corridor Contract Won.

#YongnamLeighton Contractors JV won the contract for the North-South Corridor (tunnel) package N103, with the lowest bid of S$553.8m.

This boosts Yongnam's order book to S$358m, above its 3-year average (c.S$290m),based on 30% stake in the JV plus c.S$50m strut order. We believe there could be an opportunity for Yongnam to be subcontracted for the strutting works of N107 as well as for the N106 package that Samsung won in Nov 2017.

We maintain our ADD call.

#SingaporeBanks -
RHB Invest 2018-05-16: NIMs Expansion & Loans Growth On Track.

💵 Net Interest Margin expansion remains a key catalyst to #banks’ earnings growth. The banking operators are on target to hit a 2018 high single-digit loans expansion.

➠ We like #UOB, given its greater share of housing loans – which is likely to gain from optimism in the domestic residential property market – and high CAR (which provides scope for more #dividends).

#DBS’ valuation is relatively high, in comparison.
