This week we visit a topic that has been persistent in recent headlines: coal. In doing this we will look at two large-caps that have delivered a seemingly extraordinary return in this bear market.
This week we continue to look at investing in needs and not wants, highlighting two stocks in our portfolios. Following the volatility in markets this year we have been extensively reviewing our portfolios and looking for companies that have steady earnings, inflationary protection and a service/product that is a necessity and is immune to the central banks attack on consumer spending.
This week we have a trio of guest contributors. All three were given an ASX-listed stock to write briefly on; the stock in question is former market darling The a2 Milk Company (A2M.ASX).
This week we continue our examination of utility markets. Last week we looked at prices and what has been driving them higher, this week we look to one company in the sector that has also been all over the headlines, AGL (AGL.ASX).
This week we have a pair of guest contributors. Both were given an ASX-listed stock to write briefly on; the stock in question is agricultural Nufarm (NUF.ASX).
This week we continue looking at needs not wants; companies that provide critical services that people need rather than want. We are using this theme to highlight companies that are best positioned for inflation with some even set to benefit from higher interest rates. We will be diving into the insurance industry and highlighting one company in particular.
This week we return to the recycling theme touched on a couple of weeks back. Last time we spoke about an Australian recycling company benefiting from industry tailwinds and participating in the circular economy. This time we dive into the fundamental problems we face in recycling plastic and highlight a company that is looking to revolutionise this through the use of digital watermarks.
Over the past few years investors that owned the much-coveted “FAANG” stocks would have been amongst the most popular people in the room. Fast forward to today and the NASDAQ is down -26% YTD; Facebook, now known as Meta Platforms (FB.NASDAQ), alone is down over -40% YTD. Growth stocks went on a tremendous rise to the top post-Covid however in the current environment, where fear is winning the arm wrestle against greed, those same growth stocks are being sold off heavily. So, where to allocate?
This week we conclude our latest Talking Top Twenty series, working our way through a couple of insurance companies, Insurance Australia Group (IAG.ASX) and Suncorp (SUN.ASX).
In the final instalment of this Talking Top Twenty series, we take a look at Amcor (AMC.ASX) and Brambles (BXB.ASX).
This week we will be talking about the recycling industry, a segment that we don’t believe is spoken about enough in this age of environmental reform. Similar to our recent article on tin, recycling seems to be a forgotten factor that investors are overlooking. We will highlight a recent recycling IPO that is growing fast and will be benefiting from industry tailwinds.
This week we continue our march through the Talking Top Twenty series, looking into Transurban (TCL.ASX) and Goodman Group (GMG.ASX).
This week we continue our Talking Top Twenty series by looking at Macquarie Group (MQG.ASX) and Telstra (TLS.ASX).
This week we will be looking at the US cannabis industry and talking about a stock in the ‘picks and shovels’ side of the industry, a real blue jeans to miners story. US cannabis stocks have been in a relentless bear market, hovering near all-time lows despite the industry showing huge growth.
Continuing our Talking Top Twenty series, this week we take a look at a pair of retailers, Woolworths (WOW.ASX) and Wesfarmers (WES.ASX), and a biotech giant in CSL (CSL.ASX).
This week we will be writing about an underappreciated metal that is crucial to the energy revolution and shift to electrification. Regardless of your position on the timeframe, just about anyone could tell you that electric vehicles are the way of the future. The real question is do we currently have enough supply of the crucial commodities needed to develop and produce these vehicles on a mass scale?
We continue our Talking Top Twenty series with an update on three more companies, the first two of which have been rather pleasant experiences for the investor. Conversely, the third has been rather messy. For the impatient, lets begin with the conclusion. We feel that all three could present as great risk reward propositions.
This week we continue our run through the Top Twenty by looking at the miners, beginning with BHP Group (BHP.ASX) and Fortescue Metals Group (FMG.ASX).
This week we will be talking about founder led businesses and why they tend to outperform. A number of the companies in our portfolios are founder-led; it is a factor we consider when assessing a company. So, we decided to dive deeper into what is driving their outperformance and, in doing so, we will highlight a founder-led chemical manufacture and waste management company that is beating prospectus forecasts, has a strong moat and is growing through an aggressive M&A strategy.
This week we continue with the Talking Top Twenty series by rounding out the Big 4 banks, looking at National Australia Bank (NAB.ASX) and Australia and New Zealand Banking Group (ANZ.ASX).
This week we will be visiting the world of semiconductors and looking at why the equipment providers may be a compelling way to gain exposure to the sector. We are currently in the midst of a massive global shortage of semiconductors at a time when demand is skyrocketing as a result of aggressive digitisation and the rise of tech like electric vehicles. The stock in question is a SATS (Semiconductor Assembly and Testing Services) company.
This week we look at a contracting company that provides infrastructure services to the energy industry. The company should also be well positioned to benefit from the shift toward clean energy. Contracting companies typically trade at low multiples due to their low margins and cyclicality, the stock we are covering is growing revenues at 25% and is seeing their renewables division doubling YoY.
With Australian reporting season now well and truly over, we take stock and return to our Talking Top Twenty series. To kick things off this time around we take a look at a couple of the Big 4 banks; Commonwealth Bank of Australia (CBA.ASX) and Westpac (WBC.ASX).
This week Ron Shamgar takes a look at an expanding healthcare services company that has traded well despite a tough operating period; a stock that could also potentially be interesting from an M&A perspective.
With reporting season now over, investors can take the time to review the results. Stocks will often take time to rerate after the release of a good result as they can get lost amongst hundreds of others. This week we will talk about IGL’s results and why we believe it was one of the best on the ASX. We will also dive into CAJ’s results and look at why they should do better in a normalised environment.
