MBKET stated that the recovery in the fourth quarter will hit a record high at 1.2 billion baht, representing an increase by 56%, seeing an opportunity for an entry before the analyst meeting on November 18, 2021, that the market would have a positive reaction on the completion of VGI and U later this year. The synergy will financially support JMART and its business outlook significantly in 2022-2023. MBKET revised up JMART’s target price from THB46.50 to THB50.50 per share.
