Sapura Energy returns to black in 1Q with RM146m profit

Sapura Energy’s 1QFY1/23 net profit surged 58.9% YoY to RM146m from RM91.93m on the back of lower depreciation, higher share of profit from associates and foreign exchange gains arising from the appreciation of the US dollar against the ringgit. It swung into the black from a net loss of RM3.3bn QoQ. Quarterly revenue rose 7.41% YoY to RM951.73m from RM886m due to higher rig utilisation days from the drilling segment and increased project activities for the operation and maintenance segment. -The Edge Markets

Our Thoughts

Wall Street ended lower as traders were side-lined ahead of some economic data to be out later today amid some profit taking activities as well. As such, the DJI Average declined by 13 points while the Nasdaq lost 156 points with the US 10-year yield closed slightly lower at 3.723%. Over in Hong Kong, the HSI continued with its downtrend as sentiment remained affected by the lack of stimulus from Beijing after more weak economic data from China. The HSI had slumped by almost 1,200 points over the past 5 days. Back home, the FBM KLCI was marginally lower following some late selling activities on the financials in line with the weak regional performance. We reckon the trading pattern to be similar today in the absence of any positive signs thus anticipate the index to hover within the 1,385-1,395 range. We expect more follow through selling on Tech stocks after yesterday’s selling as sentiment on the sector turned cautious following a series of rate hikes in Europe.
