TLK is a telecommunications company in Indonesia that we are investing in because we see a large potential for growth in the sector in Southeast Asia. Wanted to get at a slightly better price but decided to pull the trigger. Also has a small beta that will help add some stability to portfolio after taking on some higher beta investments.
As a state-backed multinational conglomerate, Telkom Indonesia (TLK) leverages their working relationship with the government to generate their 16.01% profit margin. We anticipate this margin will increase as the firm looks to deploy earnings and debt issuances towards projects aimed at growing their consumer base. This led the company to grow their revenue stream at an 8.80% annualized clip this past fiscal quarter. As it spits-out a healthy 3.26% yield, we believe the company is well positioned to capitalize on market developments in the coming months - leading our firm to develop a $31.02 price target.
The investment in TLK is because of Indonesia's appreciation of currency - and considering TLK is Indonesia's largest telecommunication provider, this seems to be a safe buy that will grow as Indonesia's population, tech sector, and currency grows. With Q3 increases of 1.3%, there's no reason to believe the Indonesia's currency will falter anytime soon, especially with the stifled growth of some of its counterparts, Indonesia seems to be the most attractive SEA country for investment right now and for the foreseeable future.
Sector: Communication Services, Industry: Telecom Services, Long Position. TLK looks good value investment; It migth be selling at a relative low price comparing to its performance. Earnings, assets and sales are relatively good level. Stock seems to be gaining today but still PS method and especially PS method gives higher price than market. It’s good time to increase Communication Services since selling some Momo Inc.
We invested into TLK because we believed in the growth of the Indonesian emerging market, but there's a heavy risk attached to it because simply it is still part of an emerging market. However, despite the risk still being here and our heavy position into TLK, it hasn't given us the returns necessary, so we are a bit worried and are planning on reposition.
Since 1960, Indonesia's population has tripled to about 264 million people. As Indonesia grows and develops, they will need to have infrastructure to match the growth in population. TLK is the country's a huge wireless company in Indonesia, and we expect to see them take a large part in developing the country's cellular and wireless infrastructure development. With steady growth in revenue, minimal debt, and strong dividends, TLK is a strong stock to purchase.
