KEPPEL CORP OR SEMBCORP STOCK? WHICH WOULD YOU INVEST IN?

Keppel corp, Sembcorp stock
Dear readers, both Keppel Corp stock and Sembcorp stock have been chalking good gains in recent trading weeks. So going forward, which would make for a better investing proposition? We have the low-down of the comparison between the two stocks below.
1) Price-to-Book ratio: 1.159 (KC) vs 0.854 (SC)

2) Dividend Yield: 2.63% (KC) vs 2.12% (SC)

3) P/E ratio: 16.272 (KC) vs 18.91(SC)

4) Upside: -3.30% (KC based on $7.357 target price) vs 6.42% (SC based on $3.512 target price)

5) Largest shareholder: Temasek (KC: 20.48% vs SC: 49.45%)

6) Stock price (3 Nov 2017) vs 52-week low: 43.66% (KC) vs 29.90% (SC)

Based on the above comparison, which of the two stocks would make for a better investing proposition?

My preference will be Sembcorp stock. Based on the numbers above, Sembcorp Industries is undervalued as compared to Keppel Corp. Price wise, there is still more potential upside to go for Sembcorp Industries and I also notice that Sembcorp stock price is still lower than Keppel Corp when we compare how far stock prices have gone vs their 52-week lows. Last but not least, Sembcorp Industries is currently undertaking a strategic review, the outcome will be positive for the stock in my humble opinion.
