VN30 firms take 92 percent of all top listed firms’ total Q3 profitsWednesday, November 20,2019
AsemconnectVietnam - The top 60 biggest companies by market capitalisation and trading liquidity on the two local stock exchanges saw combined post-tax profit gain of 22.5 percent to 46.75 trillion VND (2 billion USD) in the third quarter of 2019.
Profits recorded by the top 30 firms on the Ho Chi Minh Stock Exchange accounted for nearly 92.3 percent of the total figure.
They posted 43.14 trillion VND in Q3 post-tax profit, up 23.8 percent year on year. The figure was 12 times the profits made by the 30 top companies on the Hanoi Stock Exchange, which was 3.6 trillion VND.
After nine months, the 60 biggest listed companies on the two local exchanges earned a total of 113.86 trillion VND in post-tax profit, a yearly increase of 14.6 percent.
In terms of total asset, VN30 companies had more than 7 trillion VND worth of assets on September 30. The figure was 8.3 times HNX30 firms’ and up 2.3 percent from the previous quarter ending June 30.
Twenty-one of the 30 firms in the VN30 basket announced annual profit growth in the third quarter and nine others had negative earnings growth rates.
Lender Sacombank (STB) and insurer Bao Viet Group (BVH) were the two firms recording the biggest jumps in earning growth rates.
Other VN30 firms that also recorded strong annual increase of profits in the third quarter included Vietcombank (VCB), property developer Vinhomes (VHM), Techcombank (TCB), VPBank (VPB) and Masan Group (MSN).
On the opposite end, steel producer Hoa Phat (HPG), multi-sector business Vingroup (VIC), real estate firm Novaland (NVL), PetroVietnam Gas Corp (GAS), building contractor Coteccons (CTD) and SSI Securities Corp (SSI) were the firms whose profits in the third quarter of 2019 were beaten by last year’s figures.
Three companies in the HNX30-Index posting losses in the third quarter were PetroVietnam Coating Corporation (PVB), Tri Viet Group (TVC) and constructor Vimeco JSC (VMC).
According to analysts and investors, share prices of HNX30 firms are lower than those of VN30 companies because of the lower earnings recorded by the former.
HNX30 companies’ shares ranged from 1,300 VND per share to 85,800 VND per share at November 15 close.
Meanwhile, none of the VN30 firms’ stocks ended last week below the stock’s par value of 10,000 VND per share.
