[b]HASU – A Hidden GEM[/b]

Post by lion on Wed Feb 09, 2011 9:19 am

Reported EPS for 2010-Rs.6.45.
Sri Lanka is still at the infancy when it comes to insurance and has a huge potential in both life and general insurance. With the strong backing of HNB bank HASU could become a definite winner in the sector. I have analysed the earnings of the company below.
Price Earnings (P/E) on reported EPS-12

Industry analysis (forward PE)
Union Assurance-34
Ceylinco Insurance -50
Amana-71

We can see that HASU is clearly undervalued and has a potential price of 100-140.

Cheers.
Happy trading

Hi lion
Yes lion HASU and JINS are most undervalued in this sector. JINS is stagnant in the range of Rs.15-18... HASU will be on upward track..

AMANA TAKAFUL PLC 75.6
JANASHAKTHI INSURANCE COMPANY PLC 9.0
UNION ASSURANCE PLC 33.0
CEYLINCO INSURANCE PLC 36.7
HNB ASSURANCE PLC 13..

Gross written premium for its general insurance business reached Rs. 1,343.7 million, up 18.83 percent from Rs. 1,130.7 million a year ago. Life insurance gross written premium amounted to Rs. 1,084.4 million, up 10.11 percent from Rs. 984.8 million a year ago.

Insurance claims during 2010 amounted to Rs. 648.1 million, a 27 percent increase from Rs. 511.9 million in 2009.

The insurance company’s investment income amounted to Rs. 517.1 million, up 11 percent from Rs. 467.8 million a year ago.

The net asset value per share as at December 31, 2010 amounted to Rs. 27.1.

The company’s total investments amounted to Rs. 3,403.9 million during the year, up 25.26 percent from 2,717.4 million a year ago.
