Quarterly Result Update

Doha Bank reported a total operating income of QAR 1.58 billion for 9M10, up 2.3% YoY.

Net profit was up 5.2% to QAR 895.31 million from QAR 850.81 million in 9M10.

We have maintained our FY2010 total operating income. However, we have increased our net profit estimate by 10.1%, led by higher net interest income and lower expenses.

We are maintaining our earlier OVERWEIGHT recommendation on Doha Bank with a revised target price of QAR 70.07, implying an upside of 32.0%.

Net Profit
Net profit was up 5.2% to QAR 895.3 million from QAR 850.8 million due to higher net interest income and lower expenses. Accordingly, adjusted EPS increased to QAR 6.30 from QAR 5.99 in the year-ago period.

We had updated Doha Bank on July 26, 2010 with an OVERWEIGHT recommendation (target price of QAR 68.31 on a 53.9% upside). Currently, the bank’s stock is trading at a P/E multiple of 8.99x and 7.72x on 2010E and 2011E earnings, and at a P/BV multiple of 1.65x and 1.54x on 2010E and 2011E BVPS, respectively. Meanwhile, the stock has risen 12.7% since the beginning of this year as opposed to a rise of 12.0% by the QE Index. In view of these aforementioned factors, we have arrived at a target price of QAR 70.07, representing an upside of 32.0% over the current price of QAR 53.10 (as of October 27, 2010). Accordingly, we are reiterating our earlier OVERWEIGHT recommendation on Doha Bank.
