Australian Broker Call *Extra* Edition – Sep 12, 2019

Daily Market Reports | Sep 12 2019

An additional news report on the recommendation, valuation, forecast and opinion changes for ASX-listed equities.

In addition to The Australian Broker Call Report, which is published and updated daily (Mon-Fri), FNArena has now added The Australian Broker Call *Extra* Edition, featuring additional sources of research and insights on ASX-listed stocks, also enlarging the number of stocks that make up the FNArena universe.

One key difference is the *Extra* Edition will not be updated daily, but merely "regularly" depending on availability of suitable quality content. As such, the *Extra* Edition tries to build a bridge between daily updates via the Australian Broker Call Report and ad hoc news stories, that are not always timely for investors hungry for the next information update.

Investors using the *Extra* Edition as a source of input for their own share market research should thus take into account that information after publication may not be up to date, or yet awaiting another update by FNArena's team of journalists.

Similar to The Australian Broker Call Report, this *Extra* Edition includes concise but limited reviews of research recently published by Stockbrokers and other experts, which should be considered as information concerning likely market behaviour rather than advice on the securities mentioned. Do not act on the contents of this Report without first reading the important information included at the end of this Report.

The Australian Broker Call *Extra* Edition is a summary that has been prepared independently of the sources identified. Readers will check the full text of the recommendations and consult a Licenced Advisor before making any investment decision.

The copyright of this Report is owned by the publisher. Readers will not copy, forward or disseminate this Report to any other person. For more vital information about the sources included, see the bottom of this Report.

Medical Equipment & Devices – Overnight Price: $6.55

Wilsons rates ((NAN)) as Sell (5) –

Nanosonics FY19 result outpaced Wilsons estimates by 54%, triggering a downgrade to Sell, the broker believing we might as well be witnessing "peak Nanosonics" as far as investor sentiment goes. Management guided to slower growth in the company's US consumable resupply business, a division the broker says is supporting grossly exaggerated valuations.

Moelis readily admits earnings are under pressure at Peet. Its Buy view is retained on the belief the worst is now in the past for residential markets. The analysts are in particular attracted to Peet's land bank, which is the second largest in Australia.
