ComfortDelGro (CDG) recently released its financial results which recorded broad-based revenue growth of 2.7 percent over 2Q12. Coupled with lower material costs and fuel expenses, net profit saw additional growth of 6 percent.

CDG seems to be particularly favoured by analysts due to its fundamentally strong balance sheet, stable diversified growth model and extensive overseas networks.

CDG’s strong cash position has also fuelled speculation of acquisition-led growth overseas. This is especially so as CDG’s overseas operations have seen its profit contribution steadily increasing while profit margins appear to be more appealing than local operations.

Looking at five updated calls by analysts, CDG has an average upside of 19.5 percent.

Midas Holdings

Midas Holdings reported 2Q13 results which showed revenue and net profit increased by 29.2 percent and 834.1 percent respectively compared to 2Q12.

This was mainly due to higher turnover from its Aluminium Alloy Extruded Products Division, as well as its associate, NPRT returning to a profitable position for the first time in six quarters.

Analysts expect 2H13 performance to improve as compared to 1H13 due to the strong order books of both Midas and NPRT.

In particular, analysts are confident that Midas will clinch more High Speed Railway (HSR) contracts in the next few quarters after the Chinese government pledged to increase investments in the railway industry.

From the five updated calls made by analysts, Midas has an average upside of 28.5 percent.
