The FBM KLCI tumbled 22.17 points or 1.37% to settle at 1,592.88, off an opening high of 1,615.24 and low of 1,591.29, as losers trashed gainers 744 to 173 on total turnover of 2.19bn shares worth RM1.69bn.

Asian Stocks Fall as Hong Kong Protests Drag Stocks in Asia slipped on Tuesday as tensions remained high in Hong Kong amid increasingly violent protests. The city’s airport reopened after operations were crippled on Monday due to demonstrators staging a sit-in at the airport. Amid the political turmoil in Hong Kong, flagship carrier Cathay Pacific saw its stock drop more than 2%. The People’s Bank of China set the official midpoint reference rate for the yuan at 7.0326 per dollar on Tuesday, stronger than expected but above the psychologically important 7-yuan-per-dollar level for the fourth consecutive session. The onshore yuan last traded at 7.0647 per dollar, while its offshore counterpart changed hands at 7.1033 against the greenback. The Hang Seng index fell 2.1%. In mainland China, shares slipped on the day. The Shanghai composite slipped 0.63% to 2,797.26, while the Shenzhen composite shed 0.687% to 1,498.63.

  4. 14-Aug-19 Wall Street Rebound as US Delay Tariffs Stocks soared overnight after the U .S. decided to delay tariffs on certain Chinese goods while outright removing some items from the tariff list, reigniting hopes Washington and Beijing could reach a long-term resolution. The Dow Jones Industrial Average, which jumped as much as 529 points, finished the day 372.54 points higher, or 1.44%, at 26,279.91. The S&P 500 rose 42.57 points or 1.48% to 2,926.32 and the Nasdaq Composite was 1.95% higher to 8,016.36, led by Apple which surged more than 4%. The United States Trade Representative announced Tuesday certain products including clothing and cellphones are being removed from the tariff list based on “health, safety, national security and other factors” and will not face additional tariffs of 10%. Other tariffs will be delayed to Dec. 15 from Sep. 1 for certain articles, it said. Retailers cheered the potential delayed rise in costs for apparel and electronics. Best Buy soared more than 6%, while Nike jumped 2%. President Donald Trump said Tuesday he delayed the tariffs ahead of Christmas season to avoid potential impact on holiday shopping. He added China would very much like to make a trade deal. The Labor Department’s consumer price index report showed inflation came in as expected last month. The yield curve continued to narrow after the report. Despite concerns about the yield-curve inversion, history shows stocks have another 18 months to run typically before doom hits, based on data going back to 1978, according to Credit Suisse. Data show a recession comes in about 22 months on average after the curve inverts. Page 2 of 9
  5. 14-Aug-19 N e w s I n B r i e f Corporate Sime Darby Bhd is acquiring New Zealand 's Gough Group Ltd for NZ$211 mn (RM572 mn) from Gough Holdings Ltd. Gough Group has the Caterpillar dealership with service territory in New Zealand and interests in the transport and materials handling business in New Zealand and Australia. The deal is expected to be completed by Sept 30, 2019 (The Edge). Comments: We are neutral on the news as we do not expect the acquisitions to have a material impact on Sime Darby’s earnings. Nevertheless, we believe the acquisition will complement Sime Darby Motors’ commercial truck business in New Zealand and strengthen its position in Australasia. Assuming a margin of 2%, the earnings impact of NZ$11mn (RM29.8mn) is relatively small to the group’s bottom line. Maintain Sell on SDB with an unchanged TP of RM2.31/share, based on SOP valuations. Serba Dinamik Holdings Bhd has secured an engineering, procurement, construction and commissioning (EPCC) contract in Uzbekistan, worth an estimated USD250.3mn (RM1.05bn). In addition, the Group has also secured two operations and maintenance contracts from Petronas Carigali Sdn Bhd (The Edge). Comment: We are positive on Serba’s unrelenting orderbook replenishment momentum within and outside Malaysia. Year-to-date, Serba has announced new contract wins totalling an estimated RM2.6bn. This falls within our 2019 orderbook replenishment assumption of RM4.2bn (EPCC: RM1.4bn, O&M: RM2.8bn). Our assumption includes contract renewals and adhoc works. Inclusive of these new projects, we estimate that Serba has current outstanding orderbook of RM9.0bn (EPCC: RM3bn, O&M: RM6bn). This implies robust revenue visibility of approximately 3 years. We have a Buy recommendation on Serba with target price (TP) of RM4.91 based on 15x CY19 PER. Malaysia Airports Holdings Bhd (MAHB) saw a 5.3% increase in passenger traffic in July 2019, on the back of higher domestic passenger movements in Malaysia and the high growth of international passenger movements for Istanbul Sabiha Gokcen International Airport (SGIA) (The Edge). Comment: For 7M19, total passenger movements growth expanded to 4.9%, a tad higher than 4.5% a month ago. This was higher than our 2019 growth forecast of 3.0%. However, in view of a slowing global economy and the implementation of departure tax, we keep our forecast unchanged. We maintain our FY19-21 earnings projections for MAHB. Maintain Sell on MAHB with an unchanged target price of RM8.47. George Kent (M) Bhd (Not Rated) served a notice of arbitration on Malaysian Resources Corp Bhd (MRCB) (Not Rated) over a dispute on financing requirements for their joint venture (JV) company MRCB George Kent Sdn Bhd, that is undertaking the construction of the Light Rail Transit Line 3 (LRT3) (StarBiz).

He said a large portion of the investment would be funded by the Universal Service Provider (USP) Fund managed by the Malaysian Communications and Multimedia Commission, as well as by the private sector (Bernama). The Johor Port Authority is working to develop a RM2bn (USD477 mn) oil storage and ship refueling site at the state of Johor.

Complete Logistic Services Bhd (Not Rated) is planning to sell 80% of its shareholdings in three wholly-owned companies to SH Cogent Logistics Pte Ltd for RM85.6mn cash, as the company moves to realise "substantial value" from its investments in its forwarding, haulage and warehousing businesses. The disposal includes two pieces of leasehold land in Johor and Selangor, measuring about 14,961 sqm and 10,667 sqm respectively, together with a warehouse each on both the lands (Bursa Malaysia). Dagang NeXchange Bhd (DNeX) (Not Rated) has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with Perbadanan Islam Johor Holdings Sdn Bhd (PIJ Holdings) to leverage information and communications technology (ICT) infrastructure in halal supply chain.

  8. 14-Aug-19 NFCP needs RM21 .6bn Investment from 2019-2023 The National Fiberisation and Connectivity Plan (NFCP) led by the Minister of Communications and Multimedia will require a RM21.6bn investment from 2019 to 2023, says Finance Minister Lim Guan Eng. He said a large portion of the investment would be funded by the Universal Service Provider (USP) Fund managed by the Malaysian Communications and Multimedia Commission, as well as by the private sector. “This plan will further improve Internet speed in Malaysia, and make our economy ready for the implementation of 5G,” he said in his opening remarks at the 2019 Focus Group Meeting: Embracing the Digital Economy here today. He said the government is currently organising a series of focus group discussions to obtain views and recommendations for the 2020 Budget to be tabled on Oct 11, 2019. “Today is the first of such focus groups where we will discuss the digital economy and ways the government could catalyse the growth of the digital economy to raise the well-being of the rakyat, and fulfil the ‘Shared Prosperity’ agenda espoused by Prime Minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad,” he said. Lim said to support the digitalisation of the economy and wider adoption of Industry 4.0 technology in society, the government is also providing the necessary digital infrastructure by preparing to spend RM4.2bn to provide high-speed fibre optic connectivity to schools and selected industrial zones. (The Edge) Asia Singapore Cuts Economic Growth Forecast to 0% - 1% for 2019 Singapore has cut its official growth forecast for the second quarter running, on a flat economic performance in the first half of the year. The gross domestic product (GDP) is likely to come in between zero growth and 1% for the full year, the Ministry of Trade and Industry (MTI) said. The final print is expected to fall in the middle of that range. The MTI had already trimmed its growth expectations once this year, in May 2019, when it lowered the upper bound from 3.5%, and forecast growth of 1.5% to 2.5%. That would have made for a steep slowdown, against the full-year GDP growth of 3.1% clocked in 2018. But quarterly economic data has continued to soundly disappoint. The latest downgrade came as the MTI affirmed its flash estimate for second-quarter GDP growth of 0.1%, on better-than-feared factory and construction data, even as growth in the services sector was moved down by a smidgen. The GDP grew by 0.6% year on year for the first six months altogether. Looking ahead, GDP growth in many of Singapore’s key final demand markets in the second half of 2019 is expected to slow from, or remain similar to, that recorded in the first half. The MTI also noted that "the Singapore economy is likely to continue to face strong headwinds for the rest of the year", and singled out the electronics and precision engineering clusters, where weakness in the first half is expected to stretch into the rest of the year on poor global semiconductor demand. (The Business Times) Japan Tertiary Industry Activity Falls in June Japan's tertiary industry activity fell for the first time in three months in June, data from the Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry showed. The tertiary industry activity index edged down 0.1% month-on-month in June, which was in line with expectations. Among the major industries, financial and insurance, transportation, postal, retail business, electricity, gas, heat supply, water supply, life entertainment related services, related services for businesses, and goods rental business declined. Meanwhile, wholesale trade, medical, welfare, information and communication industry, real estate business grew in June. On a yearly basis, tertiary industry activity advanced 0.6% in June. (RTT) United States U.S. Will Delay Some Tariffs Against China The Trump administration will delay tariffs on cellphones, laptop computers, toys and some other items until Dec. 15, softening the blow of levies that were scheduled to take effect on Page 6 of 9
  9. 14-Aug-19 Sept . 1 against roughly US$300bn of imports from China. The office of the U.S. Trade Representative said that some products will be removed from the tariff lists entirely, based on health, safety, national security and other factors. The statement didn’t say which items would be removed. The USTR said it would release precise details of the delayed tariffs later Tuesday, but the items that will be delayed are some of the biggest ticket items facing tariffs. Cellphones alone represent more than US$40bn of trade. The USTR didn’t provide a reason beyond saying the decision was “part of USTR’s public comment and hearing process.” In June, over the course of seven days of hearings, hundreds of U.S. companies testified that the tariffs would damage their business. The delay in tariffs also buys a reprieve for negotiators. Talks between the U.S. and Chinese negotiating teams, in Shanghai last month, ended without a breakthrough, and a Chinese delegation was planning to visit Washington in September, shortly after the tariffs were scheduled to take effect. Now, the U.S. and China will have another opportunity to strike a deal and avert the tariffs. (WSJ) U.S. Inflation Picks Up in July as Core Prices Strengthen U.S. consumer prices rose at a robust pace in July on the back of higher prices for energy and most other goods and services, a possible sign that inflation is finding its footing after a weak start to the year. The consumer-price index, which measures what Americans pay for goods and services ranging from mutton chops to motel rooms, rose a seasonally adjusted 0.3% last month from June and 1.8% from July 2018, the Labor Department said Tuesday. Economists surveyed by The Wall Street Journal had expected prices to rise 0.3% on the month. Prices for an array of goods and services rose last month. Energy prices climbed in July from June, partly reversing a drop in the prior month, while prices for services such as shelter, transportation and health care also rose. Food prices were flat. The so-called core consumer-price index, which excludes volatile food and energy categories, was up 0.3% in July from June and 2.2% from a year earlier. The monthly increase exceeded economists’ forecast for a 0.2% gain. Higher prices eroded workers’ wage gains, a separate report showed Tuesday. Adjusted for inflation, average hourly earnings for all private-sector, nonfarm workers slipped 0.1% in July from June. For production and nonsupervisory employees—a category that includes most blue-collar workers—wages fell 0.2% in real terms. Compared with July 2018, real earnings were up 1.3% for all employees and 1.6% for production and nonsupervisory workers. Federal Reserve officials have frequently expressed concern this year about weak inflation, which has defied their predictions of strengthening price pressures in a steadily growing economy. (WSJ) Eurozone UK Wage Growth Strongest Since Global Crisis; Employment At Record High UK wages grew at the fastest pace since the 2008-09 global financial crisis and employment reached a record high in the second quarter, despite contraction in the economy, data from the Office for National Statistics revealed. Total average weekly pay grew 3.7% in the year to June to GBP538. This was the strongest growth rate seen since June 2008 and was in line with expectations. Excluding bonus, average pay climbed 3.9%, also the fastest since June 2008, and exceeded the forecast of 3.8%. Wage growth data suggests that it may be too early to be talking about Bank of England rate cuts, although as ever, it all depends on Brexit. In the three months to June, employment increased by 115,000 to reach a record 32.81mn. The ONS said employment has been on an upward trend since 2011. The employment rate remained unchanged at 76.1%. The jobless rate increased by 0.1 percentage points on the quarter to 3.9% in the three months to June. Economists had forecast the rate to remain unchanged at a 44-year low of 3.8%. The number of people out of work rose by 31,000 to 1.33mn. (RTT) Page 7 of 9
  10. 14-Aug-19 German Investor Confidence Falls Sharply to Lowest Level Since Dec11 Germany 's investor confidence dropped sharply in August to its lowest level since the end of 2011, survey data from the ZEW - Leibniz Centre for European Economic Research showed. The ZEW Indicator of Economic Sentiment for Germany tumbled to -44.1 from 24.5 in July, reaching its lowest level since December 2011. Economists had forecast a score of -28. The long-term average of the indicator is 21.6 points. The current conditions index of the survey fell to -13.5 from -1.1 in the previous month. The score was the lowest since May 2010. Economists had expected a reading of -5.9. The investor confidence index for Eurozone dropped to -43.6 from -20.3 in July. The current situation measure shed 3.9 points to -14.5. The results are based on the ZEW Financial Market Test conducted monthly among up to 300 experts from banks, insurance companies and financial departments of selected corporations. (RTT) German Wholesale Prices Fall For First Time in Nearly 3 Years Germany's wholesale prices eased in July for the first time in nearly three years, data from Destatis showed. Wholesale prices declined 0.1% year-on-year in July, following a 0.3% rise in June. The latest fall was the first since September 2016, when prices decreased 0.6%. The decline in July was led by a 3.1% fall in prices of petroleum products. Prices of scrap and residual materials decreased by 9.5% and those of equipment, peripherals and software prices fell by 5.7%. On a monthly basis, wholesale prices fell 0.3% in July, after a 0.5% decline in the previous month. Prices dropped on a monthly basis for the second consecutive month. Separately, Germany's consumer price inflation rose to a 3-month high in July, as estimated, largely driven by food and energy prices. The consumer price index climbed 1.7% year-onyear following a 1.6% increase in June. This was the highest since April and the rate came in line with the estimate published on July 30. Excluding energy, inflation came in at 1.5% in July. Energy prices gained 2.4% and food prices climbed 2.1%. On a monthly basis, consumer prices rose 0.5%, as estimated. Inflation based on the harmonized index of consumer prices, which is meant for EU comparison, slowed to 1.1% from 1.5% in June. The latest HICP inflation rate was the weakest since November 2016 and matched the flash estimate. (RTT) Page 8 of 9

The growth was spurred by strong domestic movements, which surged by 12.9% (Fig 3). Coming off a high base, the international movements chalked up a moderate growth of 2.3% in July-19 (Fig 4). In specific, passenger movements in the ASEAN and non-ASEAN sectors increased by 1.5% and 3.0% respectively (Figure 5 & 6). www.taonline.com.my Share Information Bloomberg Code MAHB MK Stock Code 5014 Listing Main Market 1659.2 Share Cap (mn) 13788.0 Market Cap (RMmn) 9.50/6.60 52-wk Hi/Lo (RM) 2850.5 12-mth Avg Daily Vol ('000 shrs) 54.5 Estimated Free Float (%) 1.1 Beta Major Shareholders (%) Management attributes the encouraging July performance to: 1) increased airline capacity and additional routes by AirAsia, Malaysian Airlines, Malindo, 2) hajj movements; and 3) new operations by Air Arabia.

This was higher than our 2019 growth forecast of 3.0% but slightly lower than management’s target of 4.9%. However, in view of a slowing global economy and the implementation of departure tax, we keep our forecast unchanged. According to management, higher international movements was recorded for India, China, Korea, Singapore, Indonesia, Vietnam, UAE, Australia, Brunei and Saudi Arabia sectors.

  15. 14-Aug-19 No signs of abating for international movements in Istanbul Once again , Istanbul Sabiha Gokcen (ISG) recorded a relatively high movements in the international segment that offset a weak domestic performance. In July, the airport recorded 17.1% movement growth in the international segment and 8.7% contraction in the domestic segment. The double-digit growth in the international segment has lasted for 10th straight months since Oct-18 while the contraction in the domestic movements has been ongoing for past 9 months. Note that a stronger traffic seen in the international segment would bode well for MAHB due to favourable revenue mix.

The impact on MAHB’s FY19 PSC collections for Malaysia operations and MAHB’s total revenue is estimated at 7.7% and 2.5% respectively for every 10% decline in passenger movements in the ASEAN and non-ASEAN sectors. However, in our opinion, the implementation of departure tax may cause a setback to the proposed regulatory asset base framework, where the final decision on airport tax (PSC) will be announced in Oct-19. In specific, we believe the timing of having a higher PSC, on top of departure tax, may lead to an outcry when citizens are tightening their belts to weather the slowdown in economy. As such, we advise investors not to jump the gun to invest in the stock before the final decision on PSC is made in Oct-19.

  18. RESULTS UPDATE Wednesday , August 14, 2019 FBMKLCI: 1,592.88 Sector: Oil & Gas THIS REPORT IS STRICTLY FOR INTERNAL CIRCULATION ONLY* Petronas Chemicals Group Bhd TP: RM8.70 (+20.2%) Last Traded: RM7.24 Resilient in Spite of Tough Market Kylie Chan Sze Zan Tel: +603-2167 9601 BUY kyliechan @ta.com.my Review Petronas Chemicals Group’s (Pet Chem) 1H19 core profit of RM1.9bn (32% YTD) was within expectations, accounting for 47% of our full-year forecasts and consensus estimates. It was a commendable set of results despite a tough petrochemicals market. This is on the back of global trade tensions, which led to softer demand, and hence oversupplied market. Accordingly, this was evident in sustained product price weakness in 2Q19, whereby overall ASPs were weaker YoY, QoQ and YTD. In spite of the above, 2Q19 core net profit expanded 31% QoQ. This was driven by: 1) improved plant utilization of 100% (1Q19: 95%), 2) weaker MYR versus USD and 3) absence of seasonal staff costs recognized in 1Q19 (less than RM100mn). This more than offset the impact of lower average product prices for: 1) Olefins & Derivatives: -5% QoQ (YTD: -18%), and 2) Fertilizers & Methanol: stable QoQ (YTD: -8% YTD). YTD weakness (-32% YTD) was mainly attributed to similar factors that prevailed since 1Q19. They comprised a combination of weaker ASPs, sales volumes (-5% YTD) and product spreads. Additionally, this was exacerbated by:- 1) higher opex from increased plant turnaround (TA) activities, and 2) associates turned loss making. Nevertheless, bottomline contraction was partially cushioned by: 1) weaker MYR versus USD, 2) lower taxes, and 3) higher interest income. Improved plant utilization of 99% in 1H19 (1H18: 98%) led to higher production (+1% YTD). However, sales volume (-5% YTD) was lower due to inventory build-up in preparation for heavy statutory plant turnaround (TA) activity in 3Q19. In 2Q19, the group achieved its highest quarterly production output of 2.9mn tpa. This was underpinned by plant utilization exceeding 100% (actual: 103%) which led to peak production for urea and methanol. In 2Q19, Pet Chem undertook plant TA for PC Aromatics (completed: Apr19) and PC MTBE (completed: May-19). Pet Chem declared lower 1st interim DPS of 11 sen (2Q19: 14 sen). www.taonline.com.my Share Information Bloomberg Code PCHEM MK Stock Code 5183 Listing Main Market Share Cap (mn) 8,000 Market Cap (RMmn) 57,920 Par Value (RM) 0.10 52-wk Hi/Lo (RM) 10.20/7.08 12-mth Avg Daily Vol ('000 shrs) 7,417.0 Estimated Free Float (%) 18.0 Beta Major Shareholders (%) 0.6 Petronas - 64.4 EPF - 7.5 Skim Amanah Saham - 5 Forecast Revision (%) FY19 Forecast Revision (%) FY20 0.0 0.0 Core Net Profit (RM mn) 3,979.6 4,476.4 Consensus 3,945.5 4,484.8 100.9 99.8 TA/Consensus (%) Previous Rating Hold (Upgraded) Scorecard % of FY vs TA 47 Within vs Consensus 47 Within Financial Indicators Net Debt/Equity (x) FY19 FY20 Net Cash Net Cash ROA (%) 10.4 11.1 ROE (%) 12.3 12.9 NTA/Share (RM) 4.1 4.3 P/NTA (x) 1.8 1.7 Share Performance Price Change (%) PCHEM FBMKLCI 1 mth (13.8) 3 mth (17.9) (3.3) 0.3 6 mth (14.4) (4.3) 12 mth (20.1) (10.6) (12-Mth) Share Price relative to the FBMKLCI Key Takeaways from Conference Call On the back of US-China trade tensions, Pet Chem has benefited via improved sales volumes to China. However, due to product price weakness, this did not provide a boost to profits. RAPID will gradually ramp up over 3 years, starting with 60% plant utilization. On the back of this, management guided negligible contribution Source: Bloomberg Page 1 of 4
  19. 14-Aug-19 from RAPID in FY19 , and breakeven profits in FY20. This is underpinned by single-digit EBIT margin and EBITDA contribution at the early stage. Statutory plant TA (duration: circa 50 days) planned for 3Q19 shall involve the Group’s ethylene cracker (capacity: 400k tpa) and its related downstream plants. Meanwhile, PC Fertilizer Sabah (formerly known as SAMUR) is scheduled for maintenance in 4Q19. Impact Maintain earnings estimates. Valuation We downgrade Pet Chem’s target multiple to 9.0x CY20 EV/EBITDA (previous: 9.5x). Correspondingly, our target price (TP) for Pet Chem is lowered to RM8.70 (previous: RM9.10). This is in-line with de-rating of regional peers to 8.0x CY20 EV/EBITDA (previous: 9.0x). We believe that Pet Chem’s premium versus its peers is justified given its cheap gas feedstock advantage, superior balance sheet, and capacity expansion at RAPID. Since we downgraded Pet Chem back in May-19, its share price has retraced by 17%. Therefore, we believe the risk-reward ratio has turned attractive at this juncture. As such, we upgrade the stock to Buy (previous: Hold). Page 2 of 4

  22. SECTOR UPDATE Wednesday , August 14, 2019 FBMKLCI: 1,592.88 THIS REPORT IS STRICTLY FOR INTERNAL CIRCULATION ONLY* Plantation Sector Underweight Lower-than-Expected Stockpile Angeline Chin Tel: +603-2167 9611 angelinechin@ta.com.my www.taonline.com.my Stockpile Continued to Decline Malaysia Palm Oil Board (MPOB)’s July-2019 palm oil data was a bit of a surprise with the stockpile, exports and imports defied expectations. Stockpiles fell by 0.8% MoM to 2.39mn tonnes, which were below street’s expectation of 2.47mn tonnes. Exports surprised us on the upside with 7.4% growth in July, beating consensus estimates of 2.1% to 4.1% MoM growth. Meanwhile, production came in above expectations with a 15.1% MoM increase to 1.74mn tonnes, attributable to seasonal factor. Domestic usage increased 17.6% MoM to 309k tonnes, while imports dropped by 63.8% MoM to 37k tonnes, which is lower than expectations. Figure 1: Movement in Stockpiles Source: MPOB, TA Research Production Entering Peak Season Trend CPO production increased by 15.1% MoM (+15.6% YoY) to 1.74mn tonnes. We believe the surge was mainly attributable to the low-base effect as harvest activities resumed after workers came back from Eid-Al-Fitr holidays. Besides, the growth may also be seasonal as production growth usually picks up from July onwards. The YTD production stood at 11.5mn tonnes (+10.6% YoY). Meanwhile, the July FFB yield surged by 12.7% MoM to 1.51 tonnes/ha. Cumulative FFB yield of 9.96 tonnes/ha was higher than 9.21 tonnes/ha recorded a year ago. Page 1 of 5

All major destinations experienced a MoM decline of between 15.7% to 22.4%, except for India (+7.6% MoM) and Pakistan (+5.8% YoY). Cumulatively, total exports grew 15.2% YoY to 10.9mn tonnes. Looking forward, cargo surveyors, AmSpec and Intertek estimated that the palm oil exports for the first 10 days of Aug to increase by 39% and 35% to 512k and 503k tonnes, respectively. Figure 4: Exports vs. MoM Growth Figure 5: Breakdown by Major Destinations Source: MPOB, TA Research Source: MPOB, TA Research Maintain CPO Price at RM2,100/tonne The YTD average CPO price stood at circa RM1,976/tonne. CPO futures reacted positively yesterday to the MPOB data and surged to RM2,150 to RM2,200/tonne for the Sep to Nov contracts. No change to our average CPO price forecast of RM2,100/tonne in 2019. We are expecting a stronger CPO prices in 2H, supported by strong exports and higher biodiesel mandate in both Malaysia and Indonesia, which is expected to ramp up biodiesel consumption. Having said that, the expected CPO price of RM2,100/tonne is still much lower than the 5-year average CPO price of RM2,452/tonne. Maintain Underweight We reiterate our Underweight recommendation on the Plantation sector. We maintain Sell recommendations for all of the plantation stocks under our coverage except KFima, which is currently under Hold with a TP of RM1.89/share. Re-rating catalysts include: 1) Extreme weather change, which leads to higher CPO price, 2) Downward revisions in soybean production estimates, 3) Better-than-expected demand in China and India and 4) Higher CPO demand due to biodiesel mandates.

Meanwhile, the O&M contracts have no specific value as the contracts are on a call-out basis. Our Take We are positive on Serba’s unrelenting orderbook replenishment momentum within and outside Malaysia. YTD, Serba has announced new contract wins totalling an estimated RM2.6bn. This falls within our 2019 orderbook replenishment assumption of RM4.2bn (EPCC: RM1.4bn, O&M: RM2.8bn). Our assumption includes contract renewals and adhoc works (that will not be officially announced). Inclusive of these new projects, we estimate that Serba has current outstanding orderbook of RM9.0bn (EPCC: RM3bn, O&M: RM6bn). This implies robust revenue visibility of approximately 3 years. Impact Maintain earnings forecasts. Valuation We have a Buy recommendation on Serba with target price (TP) of RM5.00 based on 15x CY19 PER. Our affinity for Serba is underpinned by: 1) resilient demand for brownfield maintenance services, 2) diversification into utilities business via ownership stakes for stable recurring income, 3) global clientele and not reliant on Petronas, 4) new capacity at RM259mn Bintulu Integrated Energy Service Hub (start: 2020), 5) major expansion and real estate ventures (target completion: 4Q20-21) at Pengerang Forecast Revision (%) Net profit (RMm) Consensus TA's / Consensus (%) Previous Rating FY19 FY20 0.0 0.0 454.7 492.1 472.7 558.3 96 89 Buy (Maintained) Financial Indicators Net Debt / Equity (x) ROA (%) ROE (%) NTA/Share (RM) Price/NTA (x) FY19 0.5 9.5 18.8 1.6 2.5 Share Performance (%) Price Change SDH 1 mth (1.2) 3 mth 2.0 6 mth 6.5 12 mth 7.1 FY20 0.5 9.3 17.8 1.9 2.2 FBM KLCI (4.6) (0.4) (5.7) (10.7) (12-Mth) Share Price relative to the FBMKLCI Source: Bloomberg Page 1 of 3

RESULTS UPDATE Wednesday , August 14, 2019 FSSTI: 3,146.73 Sector: Plantation THIS REPORT IS STRICTLY FOR INTERNAL CIRCULATION ONLY* Wilmar International Limited TP: SGD3.65 (-9.9%) Last Traded: SGD4.05 Another Weak Quarter Angeline Chin SELL Tel: +603-2167 9611 angelinechin@ta.com.my Review Wilmar's 2QFY19 results came in below expectations. Excluding exceptional items, core net profit plunged by 49.7% YoY to USD176.8mn as a result of lower crush margins due to impact of African swine fever (ASF), lower contributions from China associates and higher finance cost. 1HFY19 core net profit decreased by 20.2% YoY to USD427.1mn, accounting for 33% and 25% of our and consensus' full-year estimate. Tropical Oils. Despite lower CPO price and production yields, 1HFY19 PBT increased by 40.8% to USD361.2mn mainly attributable to better performance of the manufacturing and merchandising business coupled with better sales volume and margins. Meanwhile, 1HFY19 FFB production decreased by 8.1% YoY to 1.9mn tonnes as the yield decreased from 10.7 tonnes/ha to 9.9 tonnes/ha. Overall, sales volume for manufacturing & merchandising increased by 9.1% YoY to 12.4mn tonnes. Oilseeds & Grains. The group registered strong contribution from the Consumer Products, Rice and Flour milling businesses. However, 1HFY19 PBT still plunged by 67.5% YoY to USD150.3mn, dragged by poor results from the crushing business (which had been impacted by the ASF outbreak in China). Overall sales volume decreased by 1.1% YoY to 17.4mn tonnes. Sugar. 1HFY19 LBT narrowed to USD67.7mn (1HFY18: USD85.2mn), underpinned by stronger performance from refining and merchandising activities. Overall sales volume increased by 11.6% to 5.6mn tonnes in 1QFY19, mainly due to contributions from Shree Renuka Sugars Limited milling operations (which became a subsidiary in June 2018). Lastly, contributions from JV & Associates decreased by 52.9% YoY to USD42.8mn, dragged by weaker contributions from the African associates and investments in China. The group declared a lower interim dividend of SGD0.03/share for the quarter under review (SGD0.035/share in 2QFY18). Impact FY19 and FY20 earnings forecasts are revised downward by 21.6% and 10.3%, respectively, after incorporating lower margins and contribution from JV and associates. We also take this opportunity to introduce our FY21 earnings forecast of USD1,428.0mn. Outlook Management expects the margins of its crushing business and other segments to perform better in 2H. However, management expects the ASF’s impact on China soybean meal demand is likely to take several years to eradicate.

  31. 14-Aug-19 Valuation Target price for Wilmar has been revised upward to SGD3 .65/share from SGD3.59/share previously as we attach higher valuation to the oilseeds & grains segment and consumer segment. The new TP translates into CY20 PER of 13.5x. YTD, Wilmar share price has appreciated by more than 30%. We believe that the rally was mainly triggered by the proposed IPO exercise for its China operations, which has gained some interest from investors. We maintain SELL on Wilmar and believe that the stock has run way ahead of fundamentals.

- The table above is a compilation of actively traded stocks with some popular technical indicators. The technical BUY/SELL signals on the last four columns are auto generated; the first two being existing or recent signals while the last two represent a signal change from BUY to SELL or the reverse, otherwise no change is indicated by a dash. INTERPRETATION OF TECHNICAL INDICATORS: Bollinger Bands: Variable width bands that narrow during less volatile periods and widen during more volatile periods. As a general rule, in a bearish trend, traders should buy when share price touches the lower band and exit when price touches the middle band. The reverse is true in a bullish trend, ie. Buy when price touches the middle band and sell when price touches the upper band. Momentum traders tend to buy on price breakouts above the upper band, and sell when price breaks down below the lower band. 14-day Relative Strength Index (RSI): A reading below 30 is considered oversold, above 70 is overbought. A rise above 50 with a corresponding share price surge above the 30-day moving average should be taken as a bullish move with good short-term upside potential. A fall below 50 and a simultaneous dip below the 30-day average is bearish and imply further near-term downside risk. Moving Averages: A stock’s short-term trend is bullish if share price stays above the 10-day moving average, and bearish if it stays below. The medium-term trend is positive if share price stays above the 30-day average, and negative if it remains below. A longer-term uptrend is intact if share price sustain above the 50-day average, and is deemed broken if it breaches below this level. Directional Movement Indicator (DMI): The DMI is an indicator of trend strength. A positive DMI difference (DMI diff) value is bullish and indicate a higher DI+ vs. DI-, while a negative DMI diff is bearish due to a lower DI+ vs. DI- (DMI diff = DI+ minus DI-). A crossover of DI+ above DI- triggers a BUY signal, while a SELL signal is flashed when the DI+ crosses below the DI-. The Average Directional Movement Index (ADX) indicates the strength of a trend, whether it is up or down. The higher the value of ADX, the stronger the trend. An ADX value above 25 suggests a trending market or stock, while a value below 20 signal congestion or absence of trend. Daily Moving Average Convergence Divergence (MACD): The MACD diff value is derived from the difference between the MACD line (the 12-day EMA minus the 26-day EMA) and the MACD signal line (the 9-day EMA of the MACD). A positive MACD diff value is bullish, while a negative MACD diff is bearish. A BUY signal is generated when the MACD diff rises above zero, and SELL signal sparked when the MACD diff value falls below zero. Page 1 of 4
  35. 14-Aug-19 Technical Comments : Sell AMBank & RHB Bank Bearish technical momentum point to further correction possibilities for AMBank, with a confirmed breakdown below the 61.8%FR (RM3.97) to aim for the 76.4%FR (RM3.75) before stalling, and resistance seen from the 50%FR (RM4.15) and 38.2%FR (RM4.33). Likewise, a decisive breakdown on RHB Bank shares below the 200-day ma (RM5.54) could accelerate fall towards the 38.2%FR (RM5.44), with stronger support seen at the 23.6%FR (RM5.29), while overhead resistance is from the 61.8%FR (RM5.68). .

Money Flow (MF) Calculation The value of money flow is set to zero at the start of the trading day. When a trade is performed, its price is compared to the price of the previous trade (the first trade of the day is compared to the previous day's close). If the prices differ, the money associated with the trade (price times number of shares) is added to or subtracted from the money flow. Additions (inflows, buys) are done on upticks; subtractions (outflows, sells) are done on downticks. Daily Money Flow (DMF) Interpretation In general, money flow trends confirm price trends. As prices rise, money flows are usually positive. As prices fall, money flows are usually negative. A divergence, however, between money flow and price trend can be a signal of a future price trend change. For example, a falling stock price with a positive money flow (IN) can indicate a future rally in the price of the stock. Conversely, a rising stock price with a negative money flow (OUT) implies potential correction in the stock price. Page 3 of 4

This is a good watch list for momentum traders looking for short-term BUY ideas, as they are laggards with good upside potential towards the upper Bollinger band or higher to TAKE PROFIT/SELL. Caveat: Some stocks may continue to stay range bound and trade sideways, hence traders should refer to their respective charts to spot accumulation (volume growth) or breakout patterns. INTERPRETATION OF TECHNICAL INDICATORS: Moving Averages: A stock’s short-term trend is bullish if share price stays above the 10-day moving average, and bearish if it stays below. The medium-term trend is positive if share price stays above the 30-day, and negative if it remains below this average. 14-day RSI: A reading below 30 is considered oversold, above 70 is overbought. A rise above 50 with a corresponding share price surge above the 30-day SMA should be taken as a bullish move with good short-term upside potential. A fall below 50 and a simultaneous dip below the 30-day SMA is bearish and imply further near-term downside risk. Bollinger Bands: Variable width bands that narrow during less volatile periods and widen during more volatile periods. As a general rule, in a bearish trend, traders should buy when share price touches the lower band and exit when price touches the middle band. The reverse is true in a bullish trend, ie. Buy when price touches the middle band and sell when price touches the upper band. Momentum traders will buy on price breaks above the upper band, and sell when price breaks below the lower band. Alternatively, a sharp move that originates at one band tends to go all the way to the other band, a useful observation when projecting price targets. Page 1 of 2
  39. *Note: To qualify in the breakout list below, the first sorting criteria is stock price must close ABOVE the upper Bollinger Band, followed by a second criteria that trading volume for the day must be significantly higher than the 20-day average volume, which signal a bullish breakout. Caveat: We would caution momentum traders that a highly overbought 14-day RSI reading (> 80) and share price pullback BELOW the upper Bollinger Band are early warning signals to exit buy breakout trades.
