Broker KGI Securities raised its target price on utility firm Electricity Generating Pcl to 129 baht from 120 baht, reflecting the acquisition of a new power producing contract.

"EGCO has been granted a new Independent Power Producer (IPP) contract of 900MW, which reinforces our positive view of the company," the broker said in a research report.
"In addition, we see a number of potential catalysts including a new round of 4,500MW IPP bidding ... and new overseas acquisition," it said.
