Global Market is entering another stage of development, which is called "Bumpy Recovery" with some panicky investor. With strong economy fundamental in China,Australia, Indonesia, Thailand, Malaysia, Singapore, and US, i expect a strong global recovery and high inflation coming soon. Going Forward 2011, we will see a recovery in US job market, which turn the economy to "growth" stage.
Hong Kong will face higher inflation next year as it attracts more capital because of US monetary easing policies, and the appreciating Chinese Yuan increases food costs, Financial Secretary John Tsang said. The US measures may also boost energy prices, and the city’s government is “closely monitoring” the impact on low- income residents, Tsang said. Hong Kong, which pegs its currency to the US dollar, imports most of its fresh food from China. Hong Kong policy makers have said the US Federal Reserve’s plan to buy USD600 billion of Treasury securities will contribute to an asset bubble risk in the city because of excess liquidity.

9MFY10 core net profit of RM253.6m accounting for 66.9% and 61.6% of our and consensus full-year estimates. We consider this within our expectation as we expect a stronger 4Q arising from higher CPO prices (which has risen by 12.6% since Oct).
Still undervalued despite recent share price run up, P/E and P/B still not demanding, relatively high and quarterly net dividend yield, double-digit earnings growth in FY10-11 and market yet to fully appreciate the hidden values.
Target price maintained at RM6.82 (at 10% holding company discount to unchanged SOP of RM7.58).
