StanChart rates SouthGobi (01878) HK$101.15

Mogi: SouthGobi closed today, December 1, at HK$88.90

November 10 (KL) Standard Chartered initiated coverage on SouthGobi Resources (01878) with an "outperform" rating and price target of HK$101.15.

The bank said Ovoot Tolgoi mine is located 45km north of the Chinese border and customers' trucks can pick up coal directly from the mine site. Connecting railways to China are complete (Ceke to Linhe) and StanChart expects a significant improvement in SouthGobi's customer profile and selling price when these begin operations. 

In addition, it noted that SouthGobi is the most leveraged play, attributable to its lower margin and higher expenses. Its earnings sensitivity to unit cost and coal output is twice that of its peers. Sensitivity to the benchmark price is 28% (for every 10% price change), far ahead of the Chinese peers at 15-19%.

Group set up to work on Erdenes Tavantolgoi shares

December 1 ( A working group was formally set up yesterday at the order of the Chief of the State Property Committee (SPC), D.Sugar, along the lines of a Government resolution on Erdenes Tavantolgoi LLC. The group will prepare the groundwork for disposal of the company's shares and devise the best ways of using the benefits from natural resources. It has already been announced that 10% of the company's shares will be distributed free to the people, 10% more will be sold to economic entities and 30% will be sold at stock exchanges.

Erdenes Tavantolgoi LLC does not yet exist as a legal entity. It is expected to work as a daughter company of Erdenes Mongol which owns the licenses of the strategic deposit mine. An advertisement to select the new company's director was published on August 22 and the deadline for receiving applications was 12 noon of September 20. Another advertisement to select the operator company was published on August 31. The Representatives Managing Council should be appointed before the Director's selection but the SPC is silent on when this will be done, except for saying that the committee will have between 7 and 9 members. 

The Executive Director of the national consortium, Mongol 999, L. Ariunbold, has said  all this has to be done under the company's rules which, however, are yet to be framed. The Government has said related ministries, professional organizations and NGOs will be involved in framing the rules. 

There are reports that an Australian is likely to be appointed Director. The choice of the operator company appears to be restricted to one German and two Australian companies. The German company is not a large mining company and both Australian companies are subsidiaries of Leighton Holdings. Leighton Asia operates the mine owned by Energy Resource LLC, and the other is Macmahon.

WikiLeaks: Mongolia passed North Korea message to U.S.

November 30 (CNN) -- North Korea attempted to reach out to the United States through Mongolia in 2009, suggesting that the Mongolians host disarmament talks between Washington and Pyongyang, American diplomats reported in a document obtained by the website WikiLeaks.

A Mongolian diplomat passed that information to the U.S. Embassy in Ulaan Baatar after an August 2009 meeting with Kim Yong Il, North Korea's vice foreign minister, a leaked embassy cable recounts. "There are no eternal enemies in this world," the Mongolian official quoted Kim as saying.

The North Koreans repeated their insistence that they would not return to the six-party regional talks aimed at convincing Pyongyang against dismantling its nuclear weapons program, according to the document. As they had in the past, they indicated that they wanted to discuss disarmament and the normalization of relations with Washington in one-on-one talks, which an embassy official suggested could be held in Mongolia, according to the Mongolian diplomat.

The cable quotes Kim as saying that former President Clinton's visit to North Korea "has greatly improved the prospects for such talks." Clinton had gone to Pyongyang a week earlier to retrieve two American journalists held on charges of entering the country illegally.

<Mogi & Friends Fund A/C>

Friends Return Slimmed, Blame It on Ireland

Mogi & Friends Fund is a tiny fund of A$21.8K I created with a few friends to put my own (and a few friends') money where my mouth (just mine) is.

Mogi: Well, what can I say? Looks like I should've sold when I should've sold. Mid to long term I believe our stocks are good, but for a tiny fund of little over $21K, slightest gain is a major gain.

Biggest mistake was I held when my first stock hit almost up 60%. I thought something was cooking. I still think it's cooking. Little did I know that people were trying to dig in a little too early.

Well, when something bad happens, blame it on someone else, right? Ireland, I'M WATCHING YOU!!!
