Analyst Belinda Chan has lowered her recommendation from a 'buy' to 'hold', saying the present valuation has priced in the rapid future growth profile of the mainland air travel market despite the company providing excellent long-term proxy to air travel in China. Rather, Ms Chan believes Asia-Pacific aviation equities such as China Southern Airlines provide better investment value. Ms Chan has a 'buy' call on China Southern with a target of $3.30.

The mainland oil play was downgraded to a 'hold' from 'buy' on its recent strong performance, boosted by rising commodity prices, share buy-backs and dividend payment. The rally was also fuelled by speculation CNPC would be injected with some international assets by its parent, although analyst Thomas Hilboldt cautioned against building over-optimistic expectations on the benefits to CNPC of such deals with its parent.
