Target Price: S$2.05, Analyst: Tan Dehong
– 2Q18 NPI/DPU within our estimates.
– 10-15bps valuation capitalisation rate compression despite rising interest
rates.
– More tenant sectors seeing sales turnaround in 2Q18.
– Overall tenant sales still slow to recover, down 0.2% YoY in 1H18, dragged by
slower F&B sales, the biggest tenant sector within the portfolio.
– Maintain Neutral with unchanged TP of S$2.05.


TECHNICAL PULSE

UOB Ltd – Weekly timeframe – Bullish
– Despite price breaking below the 26.00 psychological support intra-week, the
bulls succeeded in closing back above the 26.00 level in the week ended
20/07/18 signals some sign of strength.
– Thus with the current bullish rejection off the 26.00 support area, expect price
to turn back into the long-term uptrend to test the 27.20 resistance followed
by 28.46.
