SINGAPORE (Oct 31): DBS Vickers Securities, OCBC Investment Research and Maybank Kim Eng are maintaining their “hold” calls on United Overseas Banking (UOB) following the release of the group’s 3Q financial results last Friday – even as the bank’s earnings of $791 million came in above the Bloomberg consensus of $771 million.

(See also: UOB’s 3Q earnings fall 7.8% to $791 mil on absence of one-off gain, higher allowances)

While OCBC has lowered its fair value estimate to $18.78 from $19.61 taking into account a “still challenging environment and the prospect of further weakness in collateral value”, DBS and Maybank have raised their target prices to $18.10 (previously $17.70) and $18.36 (previously $18.34) respectively.
