We see stock price decreasing during recent market fluctuation. Expect for market factors, we partly attribute price volatility to unfavorable test results of one key pipeline product (Traumakine). However, we emphasize that R&D will not affect the growth momentum of current portfolio and introduction of new drugs. We maintain previous EPS forecast of RMB0.77/0.86 and TP HKD21, and suggest buying around price bottom. (Closing price at 26 July 2018)
