BOCOM: CHU KONG PIPE started ‘BUY’ on order book

Bocom International said it is initiating coverage on CHU KONG Petroleum and Natural Gas Steel Pipe (HK: 1938) with a BUY call and a target price of 4.5 hkd (corresponding to 2011 P/E of 12x) given a strong order cycle for the largest LSAW steel pipe producer in China in terms of production capacity.

Chu Kong, whose products are widely used in the construction of oil and gas pipelines, has four production lines in Panyu, Guangzhou and Jiangyin, Jiangsu Province, with a total capacity of 1.45 mln tonnes.

“Its production lines under construction could release capacity of over two mln tonnes, of which capacity of longitudinal welded pipe production accounts for some 1.8 mln tonnes. Chu Kong Pipe is likely to maintain its leading position in the domestic LSAW steel pipe production market,” Bocom said.

FY11 results to see sharp growth on huge orders  Orders on hand have reached 396,800 tonnes by end of March 2011. It is expected that Chu Kong could complete around 300,000 tonnes of LSAW steel pipe production in 2011, up 60% y-o-y in 2010, implying a sharp growth in its FY11 earnings.

Chu Kong now: 3.31 hkd

Benefits from robust development of oil & gas pipeline construction  Around 85% of the firm’s products are LSAW steel pipes which are specifically used for oil and gas pipelines. China has been consuming a huge volume of energy recently and the construction of oil and gas pipelines is robust.

According to the government’s plan, the length of the country’s oil and gas pipelines will be increased to 150,000km by 2015 and 210,000km by 2020 from the current 77,000km. If it is taken into account the construction of pipelines in urban areas, construction of oil and gas pipelines could see a CAGR of over 15% in the next 5 to 10 years.

“LSAW steel pipes are ideal materials for the construction of oil and gas pipelines given their stable quality and high reliability. The robust construction of China’s oil and gas pipelines will benefit the company’s LSAW steel pipe production business,” Bocom said.

Leading skills and technology in LSAW steel pipes production  Chu Kong Pipe is the first domestic company to engage in LSAW steel pipe production business. With years of experience, the company possesses advanced technology and resources.

“It is the only company to possess both the UOE and JCOE production lines in China. Its LSAW steel pipes obtain certifications from numerous institutions including API, Shell and DNV,” Bocom said.

Risk alert  Overseas orders might drag down earnings. Since 50% of the orders on hand were from overseas, a change in overseas orders could drag down its earnings.

“Chu Kong Pipe is a leader in China’s LSAW steel pipe production and is undergoing rapid expansion. With abundant orders on hand, it is expected that the firm could achieve a growth of over 60% in its production in 2011.”

EPS for 2011/2012 could reach RMB0.32/0.39, corresponding to 2011/2012 P/E of 8.5x/7.0x.

GUOCO: TECHTRONIC ‘BUY’ on product innovation

Guoco Capital Ltd said it is restating its BUY on power toolmaker Techtronic Industries (HK: 669) with a target price of 13.50 hkd thanks to an innovative product line which helps it stay competitive despite strong exposure to the stagnant US market.

“We reiterate our positive view on Techtronic despite a weak US housing sector,” Guoco said.

Techtronic’s share price performance has remained stagnant, ranging from 9.31-9.58 hkd over the past month.

“We attribute this to mixed messages from the counter’s exposure to the US market. In the macro view, negative news flow dominated US housing as new home sales in US fell in May for the first time in three months. In the micro view, Techtronic’s strategy in gaining market share through innovative products has remained intact,” Guoco said.

Techtronic now: 9.19 hkd

The brokerage added that Techtronic management is optimistic on Christmas sales this year.

“We have checked with our channel as it reported positive feedback on Techtronic’s sales order momentum over the next three months. We reiterate our positive view on the firm as we believe its earnings growth is underpinned by specific market share expansion and gross profit margin improvement.”

Guoco added that the reason for market share gain is Techtronic’s ability to launch innovative products amid a weakening US property market.

“Lithium ion power tools are shining examples proving Techtronic’s innovative ability. The firm rolled out this revolutionary product in 2009, roughly one year ahead of competitors like Stanley and Black & Decker. We believe Techtronic could benefit from first mover advantages in the coming two years, as customers tend to buy new products compatible with existing lithium ion batteries.”

Guoco added that Techtronic management expects to roll out around 300 new products that will contribute some 30% of total revenue in 2011. According to management, revenue growth in the first four months of 2011 was on track.

“Compared to 2010, they are confident to achieve a higher revenue growth rate for 2011. Our earnings model has conservatively assumed a 10% revenue growth for 2011, same as the previous year, while assuming another 10% revenue growth in 2012 fuelled by new products rollout.”

Given the above revenue growth assumptions and also benefits from ongoing strategic spending cuts, Guoco expects the company’s EBIT margin to expand to 6.9% in 2011 and 7.3% in 2012. As a result, the company’s EPS will reach $0.89 in 2011 and $1.10 in 2012, implying a 2-year EPS CAGR of 36%.

“The counter is currently traded at 10.3x 2011 PER and 8.4x 2012 PER, which we think is undervalued given its strong growth prospects. We maintain our BUY rating on Techtronic with 6-month target of 13.50 hkd based on 15x 2011 PER.”

It added that key downside risks include slower than expected US recovery and failure to pass on rising raw material and labor costs.
