  • January’s 3-month SORA was down by 3bps m-o-m to 3.05%, the first decline since August 2021.
  • Singapore domestic loans dipped 0.30% y-o-y in December, below our estimates, while Hong Kong’s domestic loans declined 2.99% y-o-y in December. CASA balance dipped slightly to 20.4%.

  • UOB: S$1.59bn, and
  • OCBC: S$2.03bn.
  • We expect bank NIMs to rise another 34bps in 4Q22. Valuations for OCBC are the most attractive and could offer largest upside surprise from dividends.
  • Maintain OVERWEIGHT. We remain positive on banks. Bank dividend yields are attractive at 5% with possible upside surprise due to excess capital ratios and push towards higher ROEs. SGX is another major beneficiary of higher interest rates.
