SIME–Fundamental Analysis (1 Jun 2014)

SIME Analysis:-

Excel –

My View:-

– Fair values/Market Timing:
  – 5Y DCF: 8.33 – 9.65 (MOS: -15% – 1%)
  – EY%: Buy below 8.50, sell above 10.40 (8.18%)
  – All models indicate that SIME is near-fully valued.
– In the near-term, I expect Sime’s earnings growth to continue to be moderate. Historically, Plantation division contributes circa 50-60% to the Group’s profit. Going forward, I do not foresee a significant PBT growth from Plantation division in the next 6-12 months as
  i. CPO prices are expected to average at around RM2700pmt (price impact from the anticipated El-Nino occurrence would only be seen in 2H15),
  ii. FFB output growth is projected to be flattish at best.
Furthermore, I also expect profit from Industrial division to remain flat in view of the expected slowdown in Australian mining sector.
– For the time being, I won’t add position, but of course, I will continue to hold SIME (hopefully it will ride up..….)
