  • King Wan Corporation Ltd (KWAN SP) Shares surged by 30.6% yesterday, bringing total gains over the past 4 trading days to approximately 242%.

  • Grand Venture Technology Ltd (GVTL SP), ISDN Holdings Ltd (ISDN SP) Grand Venture shares rose by 8% yesterday closing at an all-time high while ISDN shares rose by 4.7%. There was no specific news for both companies, however, the rise in share price is most likely due to a spillover effect from semiconductor related stocks such as ASML, which traded at all-time highs yesterday. The news that China-based SMIC was going to invest US$9bn to build a new fab near Shanghai also lent support to the sector. On an industry level, it was reported that July global semiconductor sales was up 2.1% MoM and analysts expect a 25.1% YoY growth in FY21. We currently have a S$0.85 TP for ISDN, representing a 27% upside to yesterday’s closing price of S$0.67.

  • China Evergrande New Energy Vehicle Group Ltd (708 HK) Shares rose by 14.6% yesterday, resulting in an approximately 44% gain over the past 5 trading days. The price rally since last Tuesday was after the announcement of the company’s interim results, where revenue increased by 53.5% YoY to RMB6.93bn in 1H21, while losses increased by 96.3% YoY to RMB4.8bn. Before Evergrande’s earnings result was announced, shares were trading near its previous lows in March 2020.  Despite concerns over the debt issues of its parent Evergrande Group, the rise in share price is likely a technical rebound as RSI was below 30 last week coupled with revenue growth from the company’s interim earnings despite expanded losses.
  • China Everbright Environment Group Ltd (257 HK) Shares jumped by 14% yesterday and closed at a 52-week high, even though there was no company specific news.

In addition, Citic Securities upgraded China Everbright to BUY with a TP of HK$7.70, given that the company is actively pursuing the “dual carbon” strategic transformation, and has newly obtained investment of RMB 7bn in 40 projects across multiple fields. Citic Securities also commented that traditional waste-to-energy and other businesses have experienced high-quality growth, and expenses during the period have been well controlled. Amidst the current weakness of Chinese stocks due to regulatory clampdown, it is likely investors are turning to traditional sectors, in this case, Everbright Environment, given that it is in line with China’s carbon neutrality and ESG concept.
