Japanese Brokers Report Another Weak Quarter on Sluggish Market; Nomura Looks Undervalued

Michael Makdad Senior Equity Analyst

Analyst Note

| Michael Makdad |

We maintain our fair value estimate of JPY 615 for Nomura Holdings, equivalent to 0.58 times book value; and our fair value estimate of JPY 650 for Daiwa Securities, equivalent to 0.67 times book value, after Japan’s securities brokers’ results for the second quarter of their fiscal year ending March 2023. Though we think Daiwa Securities deserves a higher price/book multiple than Nomura—reflecting lower historical earnings volatility and smaller risk than Nomura—we think Nomura is making progress toward reducing its future risk, such as by emphasizing recurring sources of revenue in its retail segment rather than flow-based sources. Recurring sources comprised 47% of Nomura’s retail revenues in the July-September period, up from 45% in the previous quarter and 39% a year earlier. Daiwa Securities, meanwhile, said that asset-based revenue comprised 52% of its retail revenue, up from 50% in the previous quarter and 40% a year earlier, slightly ahead of Nomura. At current P/B multiples of 0.45 times for Nomura and 0.60 times for Daiwa, Nomura looks more undervalued relative to its intrinsic value. Our fair value estimate for Nomura's ADR moves from $5.00 to $4.40 due to the Japanese yen's depreciation.

Key Statistics NMR

Company Profile NMR

Business Description

Nomura is Japan’s largest broker, about twice the size of rival Daiwa Securities and roughly three times the size of the securities units of the three megabanks. It is also the largest asset-management company in Japan, with a similar size differential compared with its rivals. Despite its topnotch brand name in retail broking and asset management in Japan, Nomura has struggled to compete effectively in the institutional securities business against larger global rivals. In 2008, Nomura bought European and Asian assets of the failed Lehman Brothers, which led to a sharply higher cost base but did not provide commensurate revenue. Nomura has reduced the scale of these businesses but maintains its ambition to compete globally with the top players.
