Sid Ruttala continues his exploration of the top end of the market, this time moving just past the surface of the ASX and going outside the Top Ten. This week we look at Macquarie Group (MQG), Telstra Corporation (TLS) and Rio Tinto (RIO).
This week we again revisit the topic of the banks. An issue that has been especially pertinent to us given the cut of ANZ’s franking composition. What will this mean going forward? Will it impact the way we invest?
Robert Swift highlights one of his favourite stocks at the moment, one that he thinks might just be better than Facebook. We prefer to pay less for future earnings and dividends. If we can find a stock whose future prospects are even only a little better than the market expects, we make good money. Human biases and desires to be in crowds often produce unloved stocks which are merely misunderstood and yet very likely to be re-rated.

This week Vincent Cook, senior analyst with the fund underlying the TAMIM Australian Equity Growth & Income Individually Managed Accounts (IMA), takes time out to discuss the Australian Banks.

Given the worry about Deutsche Bank and banks in general, it is timely to discuss our thoughts on the sector.
This week Robert Swift, the Head of Global Equity Strategies of the TAMIM Global Equity High Conviction Individually Managed Account (IMA), reviews JP Morgan in an environment where they are aided by the normalisation of the US interest rate yield curve.

We didn’t think that Brexit would win; but it did. This caused some immediate selling of risk assets and the European banking system was hit quite hard. The European financial system has become entwined but amazingly the agreements within the EU on services are not as advanced as on physical trade. Such uncertainty was behind the sell-off.
This weeks stock pick is from the manager of the TAMIM Global Equity High Conviction portfolio. Bank of Montreal shows significant value for shareholders from its low volatility, growing earnings stream. Dividends have increased in line with earnings and are kept at a sensible level of around 40-50%. This is far more reasonable compared with the dividend overpaying of Australian banks where the average payout ratio is around 78%.
