  1. Intuch’s discount to NAV has widened to 25% from its historic 18-20%. Signalling undervalued perhaps, funny they threw the sink into Q4 for Thcom which will “improve” profitability in future years and make the YOY numbers look fantastic for Intuch. Funny the market took until today to react to the poor 4Q earnings when a quick back of the envelope could have got you the figures when AIS announced its result…

    • I’m assuming that all the negativity around THCOM potentially led to the widening of the spread between the two.

      As for the market reaction, not surprised it was slow and am of the viewpoint that the move was more inline with the market movements.

      Finally they announced a special divvy related to the CSL sale. I believe the yield is just north of 5%

  2. Given Thcom now makes up about 3% maybe even less of NAV I don’t know how it can be this impactful? It’s profit contribution to Intuch will be approx 1.5% for 2018 which shouldn’t move the discount by this much if at all.

    I’m a buyer at these prices as I think it has quite a good defensive yield for 2018 and beyond. Upside if AIS ups the payout ratio at some point.
