Substantial core earnings growth outlook through 2Q22 and throughout 2022 should continue to boost the share price going forward. The current valuation is still undemanding—trades at YE22 PBV of only 1.3x (0.7SD below its long-term mean of 1.8x). Moreover, there’s scope for upside to our forecasts and valuation from new investments/acquisitions. BUY!

Hefty core earnings expansion expected for 1Q22
