{I-bank focus}Goldman lifts Bank of East Asia to HK$26.5

[ET Net News Agency, 22 August 2019] Goldman Sachs lifted its target price for Bank of
East Asia (BEA)(00023) to HK$26.5 from HK$25.6 and maintained its "neutral" rating.
The research house said BEA's 1H EPS of HK$0.22 was ahead of Goldman's estimate (HK$0.11
loss). Operating profit came in at HK$0.1bn versus Goldman's estimate of HK$0.3bn loss.
The beat was largely driven by better top-line performance as BEA grew aggressively in
China unsecured (internet enabled) personal lending space.
Goldman raised its EPS estimates by 67%/11%/2% for 2019/20/21 post the beat and adjusted
for new management guidance. It raised revenue estimates (led by China), but also costs
(similar driver - China internet lending) and provisions (same driver plus caution on
credit risk). (KL)
