Veye’s Take

BOQ has received strong support from investors. The funds raised will further increase BOQ’s buffer above APRA’s benchmark and provide BOQ with additional capacity to support the implementation of its strategic transformation. Insiders have bought more shares than they have sold in the past 3 months. BOQ’s dividend is in the top 25% of dividend payers in the Australian market.  The stock has corrected recently and has landed at base support though some more correction is not ruled out. It is now trading close to its intrinsic value. We maintain a “Hold” recommendation on “Bank of Queensland Ltd” at the current price of $7.87
