Cathay Pacific (293.HK): 2018H result review: Maintain the TP and Rating August 24, 2018 278

Investment Summary

Sound demand rebound and mild cost growth make Cathay`s 2018H1 loss shrinking by near 90% yoy. We believe that the Company`s H2 result prospects are mixed with recovery of demand continually and the moderate cost growth. The positive factor is the gradually fading fuel hedging losses, and the negative factor is the shrink of share of profit from Air China due to the exchange losses. We temporarily maintain the financial forecast and target price unchanged at HK$14.3 for the Company, reaffirming the accumulate rating. (Closing price as at 22 August 2018)
