KGHM: medium-term headwinds, followed by long-term strength (Hold - re...

We reinitiate coverage of KGHM with a HOLD recommendation and a price target (PT) of PLN 123.7/share. The company is likely to face several headwinds, in our view, including increased costs, on the back of the EU energy crisis, and a higher mineral extraction tax starting from end-2022. Although, our longer-term view on copper and, hence, KGHM (as one of the largest copper producers globally) is favourable, the risks described above could result in a negative impact on its profitability in the m...

Telecom Egypt: the jewel of the Nile (BUY - initiation of coverage)

We initiate coverage of Telecom Egypt (ETEL) with a BUY rating and a price target of EGP 35.7/share, implying 55% upside potential. We find ETEL’s equity story as offering a unique mix of growth and value. The growth story is based on a constructive market outlook, with strong population expansion, structural demographic changes, low services penetration rates and rapidly-growing data consumption, forming solid ground for both volumes and ARPU hikes. Paired with ETEL’s expected expansion in the ...

WOOD Flash – Duna House: 3Q22 – good results despite challenging macro...

Duna House (DH) has generated solid results in 3Q22, despite the seasonality (3Q is usually slower in terms of volumes, especially in Italy) and the challenging macro, with the rate hikes weighing on loan volumes and the number of transactions, in Poland above all. The numbers were a beat vs. our estimates. The results from the investment property segment (rental and residential development) accelerated, as DH hands over apartments in the Forest Hill project (c.150 units) gradually. The project ...
