perterpan etron Malaysia Refining and Marketing Berhad - Hit by Margin Compression
Author: PublicInvest | Publish date: Fri, 23 Feb 2018, 09:46 AM

Petron Malaysia Refining and Marketing Berhad (Petron) recorded a full year FY17 net profit of RM341.8m (+44.8% YoY), excluding exceptional items amounting to RM65.6m owing to compulsory divestment of service stations. The lower-than-expected net profit achievement, meeting only 79% of our and consensus 90% full-year estimates, was the result of margin compression following the faster rise in crude oil prices (cost of goods) against product prices (sales). Operating margin halved to 3.7 % in 4QFY17 against 7.8% for the same period a year ago. The company declared RM0.25 dividend per share for FY17 meanwhile, higher than FY16’s of RM0.22, though in line with our expectation. In the short-term, oil price volatility may persist but in the long run, the outlook on oil prices remains sanguine driven by the re-acceleration of global economy. This will be led by the improving prospects of major economies and hence the pickup in industrialization activities, which in turn will underpin the recovery of demand for oil. We remain positive on the prospects of Petron and reaffirm our Outperform target on Petron with a target price of RM13.62, suggesting a potential upside of 13.5%.

Higher 4QFY17 revenue (+23.6% YoY) driven by higher global oil prices and volume sold. Global oil prices in 4QFY17, using Brent prices as a benchmark, recorded a 24.4% YoY jump to USD61 per barrel. Petron also registered higher sales volume of 9.1 million (+9.6% YoY) barrels for the quarter, owing to better economic conditions and steady increase in the number of petrol stations.
Net profit for 4QFY17 dropped 8.6% YoY to RM101.8m despite the 23.6% increase in revenue. Operating margins took a hit as it dipped to 3.7% in the quarter (4QFY16: 7.8%), no thanks to the faster increase in crude oil prices compared to product prices, leading to compressions.
Outlook. Despite the steady rise in oil prices, the company remains vigilant and cognizant of the persistent volatilities resulting from continued imbalances in oil supply and demand. We believe the company will continue to improve their efficiency as a natural defense against this however. Additionally, we foresee the company will continue to leverage on firmer demand as a result of steady economic conditions which underpins their drive to add more petrol stations in the near future.

masterus China is taking a measured approach with its proposal to slap retaliatory tariffs on U.S. goods, according to experts.

Beijing on Friday said it may target 128 U.S. products with an import value of only $3 billion in response to President Donald Trump's announcement of tariffs on up to $60 billion in Chinese imports.

U.S. goods exported to China in 2016 totaled $115.6 billion, according to official data. Given the size of the two countries' trade, Beijing's limited focus on just $3 billion of U.S. imports is "very cautious," according to a former assistant U.S. Trade Representative for China Affairs.

24 MARCH 2018
Oil prices rose as investors saw increasing possibility that the US could withdraw from the historic Iran nuclear deal.

Crude oil prices posted their biggest weekly gain in eight months with rising geopolitical risk in the Middle East threatening security supply once again.

International benchmark Brent crude gained 6.6 percent this week, briefly reaching $70.58 a barrel on Friday.

American benchmark West Texas Intermediate (WTI) rose 5.7 percent this week and climbed as high as $66 a barrel.

While both benchmarks reached Friday their highest level since January 29, they also posted their best weekly gains since the last week of July 2017.

RedEagle Islamic banks driving Malaysian banking sector growth — RAM
TheEdge Tue, Mar 27, 2018 - 1 hour ago

KUALA LUMPUR (March 27): Islamic financing, which recorded a healthy 10.3% growth in 2017 and was substantially ahead of conventional banks’ 1.7% growth during the same period, now account for 71% of increase in the banking system's financing in 2017, according to RAM Rating Services Bhd.

“Our analysis shows that Islamic financing has overtaken conventional loans as the growth driver for the domestic banking system in recent years. Islamic financing accounted for 71% of the increase in the banking system’s financing in 2017, as several major players’ Islamic First strategy gained further traction,” said RAM's co-head of financial institution ratings, Wong Yin Ching, in a statement today.

RAM expects the strong growth momentum for Islamic financing to continue in 2018 — with expansion coming in at the mid- to high teens, premised on improving consumer sentiment and steady business optimism.

“Our growth target also factors in Malaysia Building Society Bhd’s Islamic financing portfolio (through Asian Finance Bank Bhd), which will augment the Islamic banking system’s financing by some 7%,” RAM said.

Islamic banks’ asset quality has continued to be resilient, with a healthy gross impaired financing (GIF) ratio of 1.2% as at end-January 2018, and an annualised credit-cost ratio of 19 basis points (bps) in 2017, the statement added.

"Islamic banks’ GIF coverage had strengthened to 108% as at end-January 2018 (end-December 2017: 89%), due to the incremental impairment provisions arising from the implementation of MFRS 9 in 2018, as banks with December financial year-ends have already adopted this standard. The first-day capital impact was negligible; Islamic banks common equity tier-1 capital ratio remained unchanged m-o-m at a sturdy 12.5% as at end-January 2018," RAM noted.

Meanwhile, Islamic banks’ deposits expanded at a commendable 14.2% year-on-year (y-o-y) in 2017 (2016: +3.8%), largely due to stronger corporate earnings and a major player’s shift in priority to focus on deposit mobilisation, instead of investment accounts (IAs).

However, there will be some degree of margin compression going forward, as banks continue to compete for retail and SME deposits in the lead-up to the net stable funding ratio requirement. "This, coupled with our anticipation of an uptick in credit costs, underpins our softer earnings outlook for Islamic banks this year," said RAM’s co-head of financial institution ratings, Sophia Lee.

RAM also updated that Bank Negara Malaysia has, in its latest move to steer players towards sustainable intermediation, introduced the value-based intermediation (VBI) principles in a strategy paper released in July 2017 that was subsequently finalised in March 2018, to deliver the intended outcomes of shariah without compromising the financial returns to shareholders and their long-term interests.

“At present, nine Islamic banks have committed to adopting the VBI principles in their business strategies, with each bank determining its own timeline,” RAM added in its statement.

masterus HKMA steps in as Hong Kong dollar hits weak end of trading band

By Donny Kwok and Twinnie Siu
HONG KONG, April 13 (Reuters) - Hong Kong's de facto central bank stepped into the currency market again in U.S. trading hours, buying HK$2.442 billion ($311 million) in Hong Kong dollars from the foreign exchange market as the local currency hit the weaker end of its trading range.
On Thursday, the Hong Kong Monetary Authority (HKMA) said it bought HK$816 million from the currency market.
This was the first time since the trading band was introduced in 2005 that the weak-side convertibility undertaking (CU) at 7.85 to keep the Hong Kong dollar closely pegged to the U.S. currency had been triggered.
The HKMA said the undertaking was triggered in London trading hours.
"I reiterate that the HKMA will buy Hong Kong dollars (HKD) and sell US dollars at 7.85 level to ensure that the HKD exchange rate will not weaken beyond 7.8500," Norman Chan, chief executive of HKMA, said in a statement.
"Such operations are normal and in accordance with the design of the Linked Exchange Rate System."
The Hong Kong dollar touched the lower end of the central bank's trading band target as the interest rate gap between the greenback and the local currency widened.
As the former British colony pegs its currency to the dollar, its money market rates should mirror those of its U.S. counterpart, but the gap has now widened to more than 117 basis points since the U.S. Federal Reserve started raising interest rates from the ultra-low levels adopted in the 2008 financial crisis.
Hong Kong's markets have remained flush with excess cash, keeping a lid on Hong Kong dollar interest rates.
Most market participants do not see the current bout of weakness as a threat to the currency peg even though high liquidity stemming from Chinese and overseas investment into Hong Kong's domestic markets is anchoring short-term interest rates and putting downward pressure on the currency.
The latest intervention, bringing the total amount of local currency bought to HK$3.258 billion, will reduce the aggregate balance - the sum of balances on clearing accounts maintained by banks with the HKMA - to HK$176.52 billion on April 16, according to Reuters data.
The Hong Kong dollar is pegged at 7.8 to the U.S. dollar, but can trade between the high and low limits of 7.75 and 7.85. Under the currency peg, the HKMA is obliged to intervene when the Hong Kong dollar hits 7.75 or 7.85 to keep the band intact.
