    Hi Kim Tong,

    I was trying to calculate the fair value of the 3 local banks, after watching episode 49 of Moneyweek.
    And know that there are 2 ways to do that, by;
    1. (Earning per share) x (Average PE ratio of the same trade/business)
    2. (Book Value per share) x (Average Book Value ratio of the same trade/business)

    Are you able to share the Book Value per share and the Book Value Ratio for the 3 banks too?
    I was unable to find them from either Bloomberg and Reuters.

    Also, I would appreciate to know why your coded PE of OCBC is higher than those from Bloomberg and Reuters (with average of 9.3x)?

    Thank you.

    Best Rgds ……. Kent

    OCBC earnings per share shown in the blog EXCLUDES one-time huge divestment gains. PE calculated is based on core earnings of OCBC (hence lower full year actual earnings).
    Book value per share = Net Asset Value per share in the blog.
