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 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 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?
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).
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.
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.
This week we will continue looking at reporting season with a look at two companies that saw challenging trading conditions in the half as a result of Covid-19 impacts and explain why their outlook for FY22 is strong. Many companies saw tougher trading conditions but not all were able to navigate through the half without a severe impact on operations. Further, January has been impacted by omicron but, looking forward, we are starting to see a more normalised trading environment.
Continuing on with our reporting season notes, we will cover a few more of our key holdings across TAMIM’s Australian equity portfolios. There has been increased uncertainty across markets as geopolitical tensions in eastern Europe have come to a head alongside hawkish central bank commentary. Any company even remotely connected to the word ‘growth’ is apparently tainted and has been sold down accordingly.
Over the next few weeks we will be providing commentary on half yearly results for some of our key holdings. During February companies report their half yearly results for the period ending December 31st while also providing an outlook for the full year results. Companies will typically host a conference call with investors and you'll hear just about every analyst asking management to “provide more colour” to the results in the Q&A section to get as much commentary as possible on why the numbers came out the way they did and what to expect for the next set of results. This week we will discuss the results of MNY and SWM.
2022 hasn’t started like most people were hoping with January being the worst start to a year on record, the S&P500 being down -11%, at one point. The ten largest stocks on the index were down -20% at one point and the average Nasdaq stock was down -50%. In Australia, the tech index hit an intra month low of -25% while the Small Ords was down -13% at one stage. This week we have seen a bounce back in equity markets but one could argue that we are in bear market territory based on some of those figures, yet there’s no global recession in sight.
Ron Shamgar lays out the investment thesis for a stock he believes will soon be the subject of a takeover offer.
This week we are looking at a small cap company that is providing software solutions to the hospitality sector while also expanding into overseas markets with huge addressable opportunities. The company has a market cap of only $100m and has mostly gone unnoticed to date, without any media coverage, even though they have been growing quickly, making acquisitions and are now EBITDA positive. The events and hospitality industry are clear post lockdown winners and the companies that provide the sector with services will benefit accordingly.
This week we look to conclude the series with some insights into two more pharma companies that we believe could make for an interesting addition to investor portfolios. Both are potentially high growth and arguably further up the risk curve (if one is to define it by traditional valuation metrics).
This week we will be visiting a stock in our Global Mobility portfolio that is poised to benefit from the themes of electrification and autonomy. While these thematics are well known and are well covered, most investors look to only a few select stocks to benefit from the trends (i.e. Tesla or their favorite lithium stock). Our Global Mobility portfolio focuses on finding the companies that are forming the ecosystem around these core thematics, the companies that will benefit from these trends but are perhaps less known to the everyday investor.
At TAMIM we are committed to educating investors on how best to manage their retirement futures.
