  • The SET has run a market consultation on relaxing liquidity thresholds for inclusion of stocks in the Stock Exchange of Thailand SET 50 Index (SET50 INDEX) universe.
  • The consultation is the result of an increase in Average Daily Trading Values and lower turnover ratios, especially for large cap stocks.

Thai Banks 1Q24 Screener; We Stick with Krung Thai for Best Value, Kasikorn for Positive Catalysts

By Victor Galliano

  • Krung Thai is our value pick among Thai banks, having solid post-provision profitability, close to double digit ROE with a healthy balance sheet, along with undemanding PBV and PE ratios
  • We maintain Kasikorn on the buy list, as its cost of risk was well contained in 1Q24, a key positive catalyst for its improving post-provision returns
  • Bank of Thailand is currently accepting applications for digital banking licenses until 19 September 2024; incumbent banks and domestic big corporates are likely to form the core of applicants

Fabrinet – Fabrinet: A Tale Of Rapid Growth in Datacom Driven by AI Applications! – Major Drivers

By Baptista Research

  • Fabrinet’s recent earnings included a new record set for second quarter revenue and EPS due to rapid growth in datacom, driven specifically by next-gen AI interconnect, with revenue at $712.7 million, an increase of 7% from the previous year and 4% from the first quarter.
  • However, telecom revenue remained impacted by inventory absorption in the ecosystem – a possible note of concern.
  • The company expects telecom revenue to slightly increase in the third quarter as newer optical communication technologies, like extended reach pluggable optics, have seen increasing demand.

Valeura Energy (TSX: VLE): Three exploration wells deliver three discoveries

By Auctus Advisors

  • The Nong Yao-13 exploration well in the new Nong Yao D area that was targeting multiple zones has encountered >30 feet of new oil play across several new shallow intervals which have not been produced elsewhere on the concession.
  • These reservoirs are believed to be recurring across the Nong Yao D area.
  • The drilling result confirms that oil has successfully migrated into this area of the block (a factor that was seen to be a risk in the Nong Yao D area) and open the opportunity for further appraisal and exploration drilling in the vicinity to derisk sufficient volumes to justify a future development.
