SINGAPORE (Mar 26): OCBC Investment Research remains bullish on Singapore’s banking space while keeping its sector “overweight” with “buy” calls on both DBS and UOB, which have been given fair value estimates of $29.31 and $28.30, respectively.

Both stocks had dividend yields of 4.8%, with DBS and UOB trading at the respective book values of 1.3 times and 1.1 times, or at an average of 1.2 times historical book as at the close of Wednesday.

In a Tuesday report, OCBC analyst Carmen Lee notes that raising this average to 1.3 times book and factoring a 10% premium for DBS over the other two years – as was the case in recent years – would bring the banks’ fair value estimates to “quite similar levels” as those projected by the research house.
