AOT: extends remedy package for concessionaires & airlines operating at 6 international airports for one more year till end of March 23.

Comment: I both fully understand and fully don’t understand AOT’s price today. The bull – no competition + eventual recover, the bear – there are no tourists and they may only get to ~30% of p-c19 by the end of 2022.

  1. quote ‘the carterlisation of Thailand (and frankly every other country/industry) continues.’ that’s a deliberate typo, The correct spelling is cartel. Right, Pon?

    • Central/cp/charoen – retail, CP – agri, Charoen/singha – alcohol, gulf & ptt – energy, all banks stronger, telcos (gulf/cp). everything works together. Arguably the most independent cartel has been the Central Group.

      Whilst we can make $ on their stocks, if new independent groups don’t thrive this country will economically look like the Philippines (wonderful people, $hit economic setup controlled by 10 groups).
