New Investor Augurs Well For G8 Education

Child care provider G8 Education has improved its balance sheet metrics, teaming up with a Chinese investor to provide capital to pursue acquisitions.

10:41 AM


UBS rates AGI as Neutral

Ainsworth posted a -57% fall in profit, in line with guidance and the broker. No dividend was announced. FY guidance implies an immediate turnaround but while the broker has lifted forecasts, the numbers are still short.

The broker struggles to see more upside given declining ship share and an elevated cost base. Neutral retained. Target rises to $1.77 from $1.74.

Morgans rates MND as Hold

First half results were broadly in line. Morgans notes market conditions remain difficult with pressure on revenue and margins, particularly in engineering and construction. This is somewhat offset by maintenance and industrial services.

The broker continues to suspect the company will struggle with a transition to infrastructure from oil & gas work over the next 12 months without an acquisition.

Hold rating retained. Target is raised to $10.95 from $7.93.

Citi rates SXY as Downgrade to Sell from Neutral

Citi analysts have decided to downgrade to Sell/High Risk with an increased price target of 35c (was 31c). The analysts make an effort to emphasise they do like the potential as well as company management, but the share price has simply run too hard too fast.

Given the industry's track record, the analysts argue it is not wise to pay up for future potential too early in the process. Citi reduces FY17-19 Core NPAT estimates due to higher D&A plus higher interest costs.
