First Resources - Riding On Palm Oil Price Recovery

First Resources (SGX:EB5) | SGinvestors.ioFirst Resources (SGX:EB5)
  • We maintain our BUY rating on First Resources (SGX:EB5) with 2024 DCF-based target price at S$2.0 (WACC: 11.8% TG: 2%) mainly on lower FY23/24F earnings forecast. Our target price implies 12.5x FY24F P/E, which is slightly higher its 5-year average P/E of 11.4x on recovering earnings outlook next year in 2024F, after a challenging year in 2023, especially in 1H23.

  • First Resources's share price is trading at FY24F P/E of 9.5x, which is below its 5-year average P/E multiple, hence we believe the weaker earnings trend in 1H23 is already well priced in. In addition, we think that the valuation does not reflect the expected CPO price improvement in 2H23 as the general market is focused on the soft CPO price currently.

  • First Resources was previously hit by changes in Indonesian regulations such as the progressive levies in 2021 and Domestic Market Obligation (DMO) in 2022 but given the stable regulatory framework ahead, we think First Resources earnings driver will rest purely on the palm oil price supply and demand dynamics.

Room for earnings and share price improvement in 2H23
