Target Price TLKM edition 27 July 2020

13 out of 15 looks TLKM as an undervalued stock. As of today, 27 July 2020 TLKM at 3,040 which means there’s about 20-40% discount from the target price above. It’s a good investment because TLKM really take an important role in the new society with Digital become the new-norm. Indonesia’s predicted to be able to provide the vaccine by 2Q21 with current rate of testing is still the lowest (2k test/1 million population) by far in South East Asia compared to Singapore and Malaysia (27k test/1 million population). Covid landscape in Indonesia is still increasing, with the new incentive from the government related to burden sharing. Hopefully Indonesia’s economy could still be a trusted place for foreign to invest their money. TLKM still sleeping, hasn’t shown drastic improvement, buy while it’s cheap. We think 2970-3060 is the cheapest we could get.
