HPG is one of those that has seen the potential of pig farming industry and believes that this particular industry would grow to become the firm’s second spearhead business beside steelmaking with appropriate approach and investments.

GSP – one step back, two steps forward

Last week, Gas Shipping JSC announced an important change to the firm’s accounting policy regarding “vessel docking expense”. Accordingly, from October 1 2015, the firm would start to make expense provision for scheduled docking of its vessel fleet (excluding vessels co-owned by Nhat Viet subsidiary) instead of carrying on the regime of allocating docking expense already incurred. As a consequence, GSP’s 4Q2015 earnings is likely to suffer as (1) the firm has to expend the entire unallocated accumulated docking expense as of the end of 3Q2015 (about VND10.7 billion) and (2) simultaneously make an expense provision for docking activity due to take place in the next 2.5 years. Given that assumption, we forecast the firm’s 4Q2015 earnings would see insignificant change in revenue as to preceding quarter but on the contrary suffer a drastic fall in PAT to only VND1-2 billion (down 88% qoq). However, FY2015 is still regarded a milestone year for GSP given its first time breaking the VND1,000 billion in revenue mark and recording impressive growth in PAT of VND53 billion (up 67% yoy) for the whole year.

The domestic steel industry has been suffering continuous difficulties from China’s steel dumping. In particular, construction steel has been greatly affected, as numerous producers and distributors reported plummeting profits or even losses due to mounting inventory and decreasing prices.

Being the leader firm in the industry, Hoa Phat Group JSC (HPG-HSX) has the ability not only to compete against tax-evading imports but also to benefit from the growth in domestic construction demand in order to expand its market share. Owning a completed production process and a nation-wide distribution channel, HPG has advantages in competing in price and stabilising its profitability.

According to our statistics on correlation between Vietnam market (VNIndex) and China market (Shanghai Composite Index - SHCOMP Index), we realized that long-term correlation between the two markets was significant but in short-term this correlation was unstable. This means that in short-term, Vietnam market sometimes has positive correlation coefficient with China market but sometimes has negative correlation coefficient thanks to impacts of some domestic factors.

Binh Duong Trade and Development JSC (HSX - TDC) announced yesterday the BOD’s resolution on the estimated business results of FY2015 as well as the guidance for F2016. The document stated that TDC will record VND1,582 billion of revenue, -9.3% yoy and 110 billion of profit after tax (PAT) for FY2015. Those numbers were pretty far-fetch at first sight given that TDC posted minus VND59.4 billion of PAT for the nine months to September. As with most companies under the umbrella of Becamex IDC, however, TDC’s Q4 earnings made up almost the entire amount of annual earnings. For 2016, the firm targets 2.369 billion of revenue, +49% yoy but the PAT guidance is roughly unchanged from 2015’s estimate. Dividends are said to be 10% of share capital or greater for both financial years.

 2015 was a much celebrated year for Vietnam's real estate market as it marked the infliction point where the market first recovered after a 5-year crisis. Thanks to a low interest rate environment, banks' accommodative stance towards mortgage lending on top of the government's many supports, transactions boomed in almost all segments of the housing market. Having learnt a lot from the hard time, real estate developers offered a better diversity of housing products where end-users now have a equal footing with that of real estate investors and speculators. As the results, liquidity have been steady on the rise despite the fast-growing number of new launches.
