Risk On The Upside For Domestic Interest Rates


The correction in the bond market and the resultant higher yields for government bonds and corporate bonds would have a positive impact on pricing for corporate loans. Recent strength in the US dollar, if sustained, should also be a booster for SOR and SIBOR. We believe the risk for domestic interest rates is on the upside. Maintain OVERWEIGHT. BUY DBS and OCBC.

ComfortDelGro: Waiting for the light to turn green



ComfortDelGro (CDG) recently announced that it has reached a mutual agreement with Uber to terminate the sale and purchase agreement for the proposed acquisition of a 51% stake in Uber’s car rental arm in Singapore, Lion City Holdings, which in turns operates Lion City Rental (LCR). Given Grab’s acquisition of Uber’s Southeast Asia operations, CDG’s acquisition of LCR no longer make sense since it was based on a partnership with Uber’s drivers renting vehicles from LCR. Hence, we view this termination of LCR acquisition positive for CDG, as it frees up S$295m in cash that may potentially be deployed to make other accretive acquisitions to grow its businesses, potentially outside of the disrupted taxi segment. Nonetheless, CDG has reiterated that it still intends to go into the private hire car (PHC) space. Go-Jek is also reported to be in discussions with CDG in a potential partnership in Singapore but it remains a speculation at this stage. All considered, given the fluid situation, we prefer to wait for better clarity over CDG’s strategy competing in the PHC space as well as Grab’s response to new competitors. Hence, we downgrade CDG from BUY to HOLD, with an unchanged FV of S$2.50.
