Recommendation: Accumulate (upgrade), Last Close Price: $5.28
Target Price: $5.58, Analyst: Richard Leow
– Revenue and reported PATMI was in line with our expectation
– Underlying profit came in 7.5% lower than expected, due to one-off surplus
arising from the finalisation of valuation, in association with the acquisition of
10% stake in Evergreen Sky Catering completed in February 2017
– Positive surprise of higher final dividend of 12 cents (FY17: 11 cents)

TECHNICAL PULSE

Singtel Ltd – Daily timeframe – Bearish
– The key support area around the 3.32 level was broken on 30/05/18 with
increasing volume suggests further weakness.
– Thus with this strong bearish break below the 3.32 critical support area, the
immediate downtrend might accelerate for price to test the 3.16 support area
followed 3.10.
