TMBThanachart Bank (TTB TB) - Solid Earnings Visibility

TTB’s 2022 earnings growth of 36% yoy proves that the bank’s decision to adopt a conservative loan lending approach amid the precarious economic conditions in 2022 was the right choice. Although we expect TTB’s 2023 earnings to grow moderately by 7% yoy, we believe the bank’s earnings visibility is solid. Maintain BUY, with target price increased slightly to Bt1.60.

BBYB posted another positive quarterly net profit in 4Q22 after turning a profit in 3Q22 for the first time. Full-year PPOP turned positive to Rp337b from a loss of Rp790b in 2021. There was a hiccup in asset quality as LaR remained high (17%) while NPL coverage dropped to 31%. Nevertheless, management’s execution has been solid, as reflected by the number of subscribers, balance sheet growth and profitability. Maintain BUY with an unchanged target price of Rp1,600.

China Strategy - The End Of Cycles?

The stronger-than-expected 1Q19 economic data and central bank backstop have fuelled optimism that cycles are a thing of the past. With animal spirits rekindled, our more cautious view since end-February has not played out well. Although we have not seen an improvement in risk-reward so far and further meaningful monetary easing will be needed to see a sustainable recovery, we are adjusting our strategy to include laggards and policy-supported sectors in our BUY list.
