STOCKS NEWS THAILAND-Thanachart Securities recommends "sell" for Tisco

Thanachart Securities gave Thailand’s Tisco Financial Group Pcl , a “sell” rating with a target price of 32 baht, seeing downside in the company’s spread.

“The high FIDF fee will be offset by lower deposit costs, therefore we still see a downside to the spread and net interest margin for Tisco Financial,” the broker said in a research note.

“We have not seen any upside to the projected profit and target price, while shares’ value is uninteresting and return on equity had surpassed its highest,” the broker added.

On Thursday, the company said in a statement that it expects second-quarter loan growth to be higher than the first quarter as recovery in economy boosts domestic consumption. .

At 0436 GMT, Tisco Financial Group was up 1.21 percent to 41.75 baht.
