  • Housing loan rate adjustments. After the recent rate hike from the United States Federal Reserve, DBS announced that it would temporarily cease its fixed-rate home loans as the loan rates on these packages are being reviewed. The bank however continues to offer floating rate packages which are pegged to the SORA. By putting a pause on fixed-rate home loan packages in this volatile interest rate market, they are mitigating their risks and passing them on to their borrowers.
  • Benefiting from higher Interest rates. With the constant rise in interest rates, DBS will be able to increase its margins when lending money to borrowers. Additionally, by taking advantage of the difference between the interest paid out to lenders and the interest earned from short-term investments, their profits will grow.
  • Expansion of services. With the rapid boom of the cryptocurrency sector and the surge in the volume of crypto transactions carried out on its members-only platform, DBS recently expanded access to its crypto trading services.

  • The updated market consensus of the EPS growth in FY22/23/24 is 1,222.2%/42.9%/20.3% YoY respectively, translating to 18.4×/12.8x/10.7x forward PE. The current PER is 16.4x. Bloomberg consensus average 12-month target price is HK$25.17.
