SCB Securities (SCBS) raised its assumption for 2021 average daily market turnover (excluding proprietary trading) to 80 billion baht (+30% YoY) from 60 billion baht to fine-tune with YTD daily market turnover, giving solid 2021F earnings growth at 32% for MBKET and 43% for ASP. Both are expected to report good 1Q21 earnings, driven by large daily market turnover and recovery in the stock market.
By SCBS estimates, MBKET and ASP will offer a good dividend yield at >8% for 2021. Despite a strong share rally YTD (31% for ASP and 7% for MBKET), SCBS believed valuation is still attractive given the hefty market turnover and thus upgrade ASP and MBKET to Outperform from Neutral with a hike in target price to ฿11.3 for MBKET and ฿3.6 for ASP.
