Daily market outlook commentary:
The US market was helped by the dovish comments of the Fed
officials. Our market still lags behind the US and European market
by miles, and the low-interest rate environment would justify our
market to somehow catch up. One of the reasons for the
unimpressive performance of the HK market is the dominance of
Chinese financials in HSI and HSCEI. After the China plenary
meeting, it seems that investors became more bullish on the
Chinese financials, and a structural re-rating may happen. At the
moment insurers and brokers are still preferred to banks.
Not a lot on corporate news. Clarifications from Fosun
International (656) and Fosun Pharma (2196) should please the
market, and share price of both stocks are likely to rebound.
Investors are still very sensitive on any of these allegations on
corruptions etc. This may in fact drive investors’’ appetite towards
big-cap SOEs, as share price of them usually held up well even
under corruptions allegations. Chalco (2600) is a good example.
Talking about SOEs, Sinopec’s (386) ADR closed 4% below the
HK closing, likely because of the explosion in Qingdao. The
accident happened during the trading hours last Friday, and share
price did not react much. If share price follow the ADR weakness,
Kerry Properties (683)’s spin-off Kerry Logistics look interesting,
and there is no similar plays in the market. According to the online
20131122-full.pdf), 1H13 gross profit margin was 15%. 1H13 core
net profit was up YOY 6% to HKD455m. For the whole year the
profit forecast for core net profit is HKD880m, up 8% YoY. Kerry
logistics intend to pay out 20% of earnings as dividend. Talking
about IPOs, CNR (601299 CH) announced plans to seek for H-
share IPO. This may be positive to sentiment for the railway
sector. Can look at China Railway Construction (1186) today, the
company announced that it won several projects, total amount was
CNY20.6b, around 4.3% of last year’s total revenue. The IPO market is hot, and HKEx (388) would be the natural winner.

25 November 2013
Another acquisition from Greenland Hong Kong (337). The
company has been aggressive, market will still speculate injection of assets from parent company. On the other hand, its peer company Landsea Green Properties (106) announced rights issue this morning, which may dampen sector sentiment.
Anxin China (1149)’s substantial shareholder increased stake in
the company, likely to see some support in share price. For the “national security” theme, AviChina (2357) seems to be a better play.
Mixed results from media companies. Next media (282) finally
turned into profit, while profit of Oriental Press (18) fell by around 50% (already issued profit warning before). There were lots of one-off factors though; Next media was helped by the special gain, while Oriental Press was dragged down by the weakness in AUD. The future of these companies depends on how to integrate with Internet and smartphone, and on this aspect it seems that Next media did better than its peers.
For those who want to punt on the lottery sales figures released by Ministry of Finance, can look at China Lotsynergy (1371) and Rexlot (555). Similarly, there were positive data point for coal sector (Coking coal price rose for 9 consecutive weeks, and Nov13 coal sales may reach YTD high) and insurance sector (Jan-Oct13 premium income rose by 12% YoY, higher than the 11.2% growth for Jan-Sept13). Names like China Life (2628), Ping An (2318), China Shenhua (1088) are the leaders in industries.
China Financial Services (605) is the latest company running into
the small loan industry, share price unlikely to react much. The media reports on Baiyunshan (874, formerly known as “Guangzhou Pharm”) are interesting, company signed letter of intent with Nobel laureate Dr. Ferid Murad, who is also known as the “Father of Viagra”.
1) The S&P 500 closed above 1,800 for the first time ever. The Dow
Jones Industrial Average rose to a new all-time high above 16,000, a key level crossed for the first time this week. The Nasdaq rose nearly 0.5%, and is less than 10 points from 4,000, a level not seen since 2000. The Dow and S&P 500 both ended higher for a seventh week. The Nasdaq posted its third consecutive weekly gain. Since January, the Dow has climbed by 22%, the S&P 500 is up by 26% and the Nasdaq has soared by 31%. The surge is thanks in large part to the massive stimulus program administered by the Fed, which has supported the economic recovery with monthly bond purchases.
