Food chain restaurants, CENTEL, M, MINT, ZEN vulnerable to shink SSSG 3Q from fast growing food delivering services, Prachachart news.

Comment: I disagree with this comment. I think that several of these players have benefited from food delivery services, ZEN themselves said that 15-20% of their business comes from delivery. Now with the Food industry one thought I’ve had is that, specifically in Thailand, 20 years ago ones main option in the shopping centers was american fast food. Then the italian trend came, followed by the Japanese trend. Now you see that Thai restaurants are far more vibrant in the shopping centers. So to see that MINT’s F&B business is struggling isn’t a surprise to me, CENTEL has effectively never had positive SSSG but focused instead on network expansion. M is tied is effectively tied to the popularity of MK Suki and ZEN I think is making the right moves. Maybe this requires a “proper” random thought.

Comment: But the share price is down because management says that there is apparently an opportunity for a massive investment that may require them to cut their dividend. Which is a bit odd given

  1. Could it be connected with the August 2nd 2019 verdict in the Civil Courts of the Black Case SV 5/2559 against TPIPL in the sum of 1.7 Billion Baht+ for illegal mining of limestone in an area not allowed by the Dept of Mines. They are appealing but this is a tidy sum if their appeal is rejected.

    @ TPIPP: yesterday they confirmed that the dividend will stay at least the same as last year and also their financial result published yesterday looked quite good. now they have a very nice valuation I’d say:)…

    • We were talking about this former holding yesterday, and were wondering why it’s so cheap “again”
      The issue for TPIPP has been 1) A few months ago they mentioned a potential cut in dividends because of a potential big new investment 2) Institutions here rate the corp governance of TPIPP lowly 3) Good results were already expected 4) Management mentioned that they won’t maintain the 100% dividend payout which caps the upside
      so 1+2+3+4 = reasons why it declined and perhaps won’t reach its “fair value” but yes the divvy is great at this price, just be wary.

        thx for your reply, pon. well, maybe it won’t reach the thb 6-7 stock price level any time soon again, but it’s definitely looking good right now…
