In an IPO note on Friday, the research house said its target price-earnings (P/E) is at a 25% discount to Malaysian peers' average P/E, considering MKHOP’s smaller market capitalisation. (TheEdge)

AmInvestment Bank Bhd has maintained its ‘buy’ call on Lee Swee Kiat Group Bhd (LSK), with an unchanged fair value of RM1.39 per share, based on financial year ending Dec 31, 2024 (FY2024) target price-earnings (P/E) of 12.8 times. The investment bank in a research note on Friday maintained its FY2024-26 earnings forecasts, mainly underpinned by LSK's guidance that the group had implemented hedging measures since late 2023 to mitigate raw material cost increases, despite the average latex price spiking up 24% quarter-on-quarter in the first quarter of 2024 (1Q2024).
