We reiterate a TRADING BUY call on CPF, based on a strong 2H22 core turnaround following its nadir of core operations in 2H21.

We revised up our 2022 net profit forecast by 30% (to Bt12.33bn) mainly to reflect higher sales and bigger equity income from CTI in 2H22. Our DDM-based target price rises 10% (to Bt32).
