Stocks in Focus on October 26, 2022: EKH and AH

Kaohoon Online has selected stocks with a high-growth potential for investors to consider on October 26, 2022.


Finansia Syrus Securities (FSS) expected the 3Q22 profit to jump (+34% Q-Q) due to the healthcare industry’s high season. It should support strong non-covid patient growth. However, the earnings should drop by 58% Y-Y due to last year’s high base, when the delta variant hit hard. However, the margin should improve due to operating leverage since it was abnormally low in the previous quarter.


In 4Q22, the profit should see support from an extra gain from the sales of its 10% investment in KLINIQ. Since EKH is running at an almost 100% utilization rate, FSS expected investment to expand the capacity in the next 1-2 years to cope with its long-term growth. EKH has support at Bt7.6-7.5 and resistance at Bt8//8.2.


Krungsri Securities (KSS) has given a “BUY” recommendation on Aapico Hitech Public Company Limited (SET: AH) with a target price at ฿36.00/share.

KSS expected AH to report an increase in 3Q22 net profit both QoQ and YoY from the recovery in production and sales volume. The government also reported an increase by 4% MoM and 28% YoY for cars production in September, reaching the highest record in nine months at 179,237 units.
