Maybank Securities (Thailand) (MST) gave a “BUY” recommendation on BCPG Public Company Limited (SET: BCPG) with a target price at ฿11.10/share.

MST expected the stock has been overly punished on concerns over ‘adder’ expiration. To offset the impact of 70-80% adder expiration in FY25-26E, BCPG plans to aggressively grow capacity to 2.1GWe in FY25 from 458MWe at end-FY22. MST thought that BCPG’s progress is in stark contrast to its 44% share price drop in the past 4 years as adder expiration started in 2020.

BCPG is currently trading at a 12M forward P/E ratio of 14.3x, -1SD below its peers 5-year 12M forward PER, and vs other covered peers average of 26.4x (GULF, GPSC and BGRIM).
