PETALING JAYA: Plantation companies with 70% to 100% of revenue from the upstream segment are expected to report robust first-quarter 2024 (1Q24) earnings.

This is based on improved crude palm oil (CPO) production year-on-year (y-o-y), relatively stable average CPO prices and decreasing fertiliser costs.

CGS International (CGSI) Research said these include companies such as Genting Plantations Bhd, Hap Seng Plantations Holdings Bhd, Sarawak Plantation Bhd and Ta Ann Holdings Bhd.
