Excerpts from RHB report

Analyst: Jarick Seet

The semiconductor sector has also showed signs of bottoming out, with global industry leaders guiding for a better outlook.

According to Semiconductor Equipment & Materials International (SEMI), growth in global sales of semiconductor manufacturing equipment by 
original equipment manufacturers is expected to resume in 2020, with a 11.6% YoY jump.

This compares with an estimated 18.4% drop in equipment sales in 2019.

Preferred exposure to the sector: Avi-Tech Electronics, CSE Global, and Fu Yu.

• We expect earnings to improve in the subsequent quarters as it has seen some pick-up from the manufacturing and engineering segments, coupled with cost-cutting measures done – which are likely to help improve margins as well.

• Catalysts. Strong earnings growth in the upcoming quarters – this should be aided by improvements in the semiconductor sector and a potential resolution of the trade conflict between the US and China.

• CSE Global is a growth stock that is a play on rising US crude oil production, as well as infrastructure opportunities in both Singapore and Australia.

With the recent acquisition of Volta, the group could deliver c.20% earnings growth in 2020.

Assuming an order intake of SGD116m (the average of the past three quarters), coupled with the two large contracts announced, 4Q19’s order intake could range between SGD210m and SGD230m.

An orderbook of more than SGD300m should give CSE Global a sizeable 
amount of backlog going into FY20. The group also offers a good yield of 5.1%.

• Catalysts. Continuing strong order wins, which are either in line or ahead of our expectations.

• Fu Yu manufactures and sells precision plastic injection moulds and components. The company also manufactures and sells plastic, aluminium parts, electronic products, and equipment for medical use.

We expect Fu Yu to deliver steady mid-single-digit earnings 
growth, aided by revenue growth and margin expansion.

We are also upbeat on its 
6.7% yield, supported by an FCF yield of 10.1% and a net cash balance sheet.

• Catalysts. New project wins in the auto, consumer, and medical sectors.

Margin 
expansion could also be aided by higher contributions from new projects through the medical sector, as well as the consolidation of its factories in China. There could also be potential for dividends to increase.
