commonsense Those that are invested in the company need to have a longer-term investment horizon before they can see any meaningful turnaround of Media Prima’s financial performance. As a reference, the company posted a core losses of more than RM30mil in 3Q18 and is still expected to post losses in FY19. Profit is only expected to be recorded in FY20 but it will still be very small. 6 different analysts are projecting an average loss of RM26mil in FY19 and a small profit of RM7mil in FY20. At the current price the company is trading at a 2 year forward PE of 50x. Any turnaround will be mainly driven by the company’s digital strategies but that will take some time before the division can provide any meaningful profit to the group. Till then, investors will need to be a bit patient and be prepare to have a longer investment horizon (more than 5 years at least).

Please take note that most of the company’s properties has already been through a revaluation exercise back in FY2017. This would mean whatever value in the company’s balance sheet is already marked to the market. As of Sept 18, the net tangible asset of the company is around RM320mil or RM0.29 per share. At the current share price, the company is already trading at above its net tangible asset in comparison to The Star which is actually trading at only 0.6x BV. Contrary to Media Prima, most of The Star properties are yet to be revalued (most of the properties still carries the value during its acquisition which is some 10-20 years ago).

If you are looking to diversify your portfolio outside of Media Prima (due to the weak earnings sentiment given the weak outlook for the media industry), I would recommend you to look at MBMR.

MBMR is a direct proxy to Perodua via its 22.6% interest in the company. Valuation is cheap at only 6.0x PE (based on target FY18 PATAMI of RM145mil. 9m PATAMI is already RM106mil). PB is low at only 0.5x BV. 4Q18 results is expected to be higher than 3Q18 and last year's 4Q17.

For FY19 growth will be driven by the still high demand of new Myvi and the launch of the new SUV in 1Q19 and also the new Alza in 2H19.

Please go through the analyst reports (https://klse.i3investor.com/servlets/stk/pt/5983.jsp) and do your own analysis before making any decisions. Most analysts have a TP of above RM3 for the company with Hong Leong being the lowest at RM3.13 and Maybank the highest at RM4.18.

Good luck.
