Amidst plenty of share market commentary and controversy, portfolio managers at stockbroker Morgans have stuck by Corporate Travel ((CTD)), telling clientele they're are satisfied with management's response to short seller VGI, believing share price weakness might stick around for a while but it doesn't appear to be justified.
In addition, Morgans' Balanced Model Portfolio has added exposure to Sydney Airport ((SYD)) while also reporting a watchlist is being kept with specific focus on major banks, ResMed ((RMD)), Reliance Worldwide ((RWC)) -to buy some more- PWR Holdings ((PWH)), Ramsay Health Care ((RHC)) -with possible intention to sell- and Motorcycle Holdings ((MTO)). The latter is considered "too cheap to sell".
Those responsible for managing the stockbroker's Growth Model Portfolio have been left licking their wounds, as the portfolio includes Corporate Travel and Motorcycle Holdings, but portfolio managers see "compelling value" emerging in lots of places now that the share market experiences melt downs regularly.
For now, the portfolio has added shares in Oil Search ((OSH)) and OZ Minerals ((OZL)), while trimming its position in People Infrastructure ((PPE)). Here the watchlist consists of ResMed, Reliance Worldwide, PWR Holdings, and Motorcycle Holdings.
In terms of yield plays, Morgans' favoured exposures remain Viva Energy REIT ((VVR)) and Centuria Metropolitan REIT ((CMA)) and, in case large cap exposure is a requirement, Stockland Group ((SGP)) and Mirvac Group ((MGR)).
