Why We Added Cheung Kong Holdings to Our Model

 November 15, 2012 02:34 PM


This month the model initiated a position in Hong Kong company Cheung Kong Holdings (CHEUY). The company trades at a moderate discount to book value and at a reasonable ratio to expected earnings.

More interestingly their recent decision to spin off hotel unit Horizon Hospitality  in a similar structure to a listed business trust should realize full value for the properties and benefit existing shareholders.

Whilst macro concerns would appear to be currently dictating the share price of Hong Kong developers, Cheung Kong looks conservatively run with a strong balance sheet in our opinion and is a long time holding of the Third Avenue Funds.

We are happy to be in such company, particularly when events at the corporate level have the capacity to create value.

The models other holdings remain unchanged and the model continues to seek attractive opportunities to deploy its remaining capital.

The investments discussed are held in client accounts as of November 14. These investments may or may not be currently held in client accounts. The reader should not assume that any investments identified were or will be profitable or that any investment recommendations or investment decisions we make in the future will be profitable.
