However, after that, the decline of China National Insurance Company narrowed, and the decline of the whole insurance sector also narrowed. By the end of the 22nd, Taibao shares closed at 33.35 yuan / share, down 2.43%. The insurance index fell 1.56%.
A number of analysts have analyzed that the sharp fall in the opening trading of China Taibao A shares may be related to the expiration of the GDR redemption limit issued in the lungx and the overall adjustment of the capital market.
Todays opening stock price slump may be related to the GDR conversion. Taibao GDR began to turn the day before yesterday, and can sell a shares today. An insurance industry analyst.
As the second order of Shanghai Luntong stock exchange, GDR (Global depository receipt) issued by China Pacific Insurance Corporation (CPB) started conditional trading on June 17, and was officially listed on the London Stock Exchange on June 22. The issue price of each GDR is US $17.60, and each GDR represents five A shares of the company.
In order to protect the interests of A-share investors, a 120 day redemption lock-in period is specially designed in the GDR redemption rules of Shanghai Luntong. Taibao GDR redemption restriction period is from June 22 to October 19 (London time). The number of GDRs at the expiration of the restriction period is about 112 million, corresponding to 558 million shares of a shares of Taibao, accounting for 5.80% of the total share capital of Taibao.
On October 13-15, Taibao issued three indicative announcements on the convertibility of GDRs, pointing out that the trading price of overseas GDR is different from that of domestic underlying securities A-share, which reminds investors to pay attention to investment risks.
On October 20, when GDR was convertible, Taibao A shares fell 0.77% to 33.55 yuan / share. However, on the 21st, Taibaos shares rose 1.88% to 34.18 yuan / share. On the same day, the closing price of Taibao GDR in the lungx was US $4.15 per share, corresponding to US $4.83 per share of new shares (about RMB 32.26). The premium rate of Taibao A shares over GDR is about 5.95%.
According to the above analysts, although the arbitrage space of Taibao GDR is not particularly high, some investors bought it for the sake of arbitrage now, so there is a bit of space. According to the previous experience of Huatai GDR, the main impact should be on the 22nd. It is estimated that arbitrage funds will come out in the future, and the continuous impact is expected to last for a period of time.
On October 21 of last year, the first A-share of Huatai Securities of Shanghai Luntong closed at 5.7%, and the premium gradually narrowed to less than 1%.
According to Shen wanhongyuans analysis, the current P / EV of Taibao A shares and H shares are 0.71x and 0.46x respectively, which are in the valuation quantile of 8.4% and 5.6% since 2011, and the corresponding dynamic dividend yield is 3.9% and 6.1%. Xinxiang, a good product with good feedback, has a limited scale of 10 billion yuan. As an undervalued high dividend insurance leader, we maintain the buy rating. We suggest that we should pay close attention to the investment opportunities of Hong Kong stocks in the fourth quarter and the investment opportunities of a shares after GDR conversion.
Taibaos share price slump is also related to the recent overall adjustment of the capital market. On the 22nd, the overall performance of a shares was weak, with the Shanghai composite index down 0.38% and the Shenzhen composite index down 0.53%. China Life Insurance and China Pacific Insurance fell more than 2%.
Since this year, the overall performance of insurance stocks is average. From the beginning of this year to October 22, the Shanghai Composite Index rose by 8.6%, the Shenzhen Composite Index by 28.42%, and the insurance index by only 1.58%. However, since October, insurance stocks have seen a wave of rise, during which the Shanghai Composite Index rose 2.94%, the Shenzhen Composite Index rose 3.79%, and the insurance stock index rose 8.04%, significantly outperforming the market.
Some analysts believe that, from the overall performance of insurance stocks, the insurance stocks rose more in the previous period, plus the recovery of the third quarter performance was slightly lower than expected, and synchronous adjustment in the context of market adjustment is a normal callback.
In the first three quarters of this year, the premium income of five A-share insurance companies increased by 5.8% year-on-year, which was roughly the same as that of the previous August, indicating that the insurance market is slowly recovering. The year-on-year growth rate of China Ping An insurance and China Taiping Insurance Co., Ltd. continued to improve. At the same time, listed insurance companies have begun to make a good start in advance.
According to the analysis of China Merchants Securities, it is estimated that the trend of premium of each company in the future of 2020 is difficult to improve, mainly because the current companies have been actively preparing for the war and strategically abandoned the insurance premiums in 2020 to achieve the goal. In terms of property and insurance, the comprehensive reform of automobile insurance has been officially implemented for one month, and there is no sharp decline in the average vehicle premium in the short term. The follow-up market feedback remains to be observed. Under the more rational competition background, the competitive advantages of leading listed insurance companies are expected to be further highlighted.
Tianfeng Securities said that on the asset side, long-term interest rates stabilized and rebounded, and the long-term investment yield of insurance companies was expected to increase, which helped to repair the valuation of insurance stocks and switch over valuations; on the liability side, the expectation of a good start and high growth is expected to gradually materialize, catalyzing the insurance stock market.
