      • EPS applied to reach the current stock price (8.36): 0.393
  • GENTING is still undervalue.
  • 1Q15 net profit of MYR620.1m (+25% YoY, +126% QoQ) was buoyed by forex and disposal gains. However, there are few issues:
    • 53%-owned GENS suffered from:
      1. lower-than-expected VIP volume of SGD12.4b
      2. below theoretical VIP win rate of 2.5%
      3. still-high bad debts of SGD76.3m.
    • 29 May 2015 – In a conference call two weeks ago, the management of GENS guided challenging prospects for its gaming business, especially the highroller segment from China.
    • Genting Plantations Bhd saw its 1Q15 core earnings fell sharply by 56% on weaker FFB production, which dropped 25% to 353k mt on seasonal weakness. This is despite a higher CPO selling price which rose 3% to RM2,246/mt from RM2,176/mt while average palm kernel price gained 27% to RM1,751/mt from RM1,378/mt previously.
  • While Genting continues to be in expansion mode, most of its current investments will only come to fruition in 2H15/2016. There are limited near-term catalysts for the group
  • As of now, I will continue to hold, but won’t accumulate GENTING because there are many uncertainties at this moment.
