Australian Broker Call *Extra* Edition – Feb 17, 2020

Daily Market Reports | Feb 17 2020

This story features ALLIANCE AVIATION SERVICES LIMITED, and other companies. For more info SHARE ANALYSIS: AQZ

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.

Transportation & Logistics – Overnight Price: $2.67

Wilsons rates ((AQZ)) as Market Weight (3) –

The first-half result for FY20 has been a mixed bag for the airline with a less-than-expected increase in profit before taxes of 11%, a 10% increase in operating profits, growth in charter and contract flight hours and a decrease in cash outflow, notes Wilsons.

The broker reports robust trading conditions in the foreseeable future and an increase in flight hours during the second half. The free cash flow is expected to improve along with an increase in flight hours in the long run.

Wilsons expects EPS to go down by -6-7%, mostly due to depreciation while operating profit figures are not expected to change much.

The broker considers the shares fairly valued, recommending a Hold rating with the target price at $2.68.

ELD    ELDERS LIMITED

Agriculture – Overnight Price: $8.23

Bell Potter rates ((ELD)) as Buy (1) –

The beginning of the northern wet season has witnessed a 20% rally in the EYCI (Eastern Young Cattle Indicator) calendar 2020 to date, even though it is still trading at a discount to US90CL. Bell Potter believes the rally will continue for now.

The broker anticipates strong first-quarter trends in the livestock markets with values of cattle and ovine turned off up circa 12% and 16% on a year-on-year basis respectively.

Bell Potter’s analysis is based on the assumptions of a normal winter cropping season, as well as the transition of the ag-chem business to Titan. The broker notes rain to be the earnings catalyst for Elders with cattle prices as a tailwind and potential upgrade driver in the second half of FY20 as well as FY21.

The broker is positive about the company and rates the stock a Buy with the target price at $8.65.

The report was published on February 5, 2020.

Target price is $8.65 Current Price is $8.23 Difference: $0.42

EXL    ELIXINOL GLOBAL LIMITED

Health & Nutrition – Overnight Price: $0.57

Bell Potter rates ((EXL)) as Hold (3) –

With a very poor fourth-quarter result, Elixinol Global is facing headwinds in the face of the weakest quarter so far. The fourth-quarter revenues amounted to $4.4m- very low compared to Bell Potter’s forecasted figure of $10.6m. The quarter marked a difficult year where a lot of catalysts failed to materialise, notes Bell Potter.

The most important reason is the labeling of CBD by the FDA as unsafe, prompting the company to make huge changes to the business. Elixinol will be selling the loss-making Health Foods Australia and its medical cannabis business – leading to large impairment charges.

The broker notes the US remains the biggest opportunity for growth notwithstanding distribution restrictions. There has not been any significant revenue growth from any channel, with the distribution agreement with the Albertsons Group also proving to be a disappointment, comments Bell Potter.

The broker retains its Hold rating for now. The target price has been reduced to $0.61 from $1.11.

The report was published on February 4, 2020.

Target price is $0.61 Current Price is $0.57 Difference: $0.04

At the last closing share price the stock's estimated Price to Earnings Ratio (PER) is minus 2.73.

At the last closing share price the stock's estimated Price to Earnings Ratio (PER) is minus 4.96.

FAR    FAR LIMITED

Crude Oil – Overnight Price: $0.03

Bell Potter rates ((FAR)) as Buy (1) –

The JV partners in the Sangomar oil project have decided to go ahead with its development. FAR is likely to hold a 13.67% interest in it, anticipates Bell Potter. The project is expected to generate close to US$180m cash flow to FAR for the first three years, reckons the broker.

Bell Potter points out the recent US$300m worth of senior debt was raised on very favourable terms by FAR and correlates with the quality of the project.

The broker is positive about the company due to factors including the Sangomar project, FAN exploration and monetization of the gas, and a favourable outcome to arbitration on the pre-emptive right to the ConocoPhillips’ stake.

The broker retains its Buy rating and sets the target price at $0.038.

The report was published on February 4, 2020.

Target price is $0.04 Current Price is $0.03 Difference: $0.008

FDV    FRONTIER DIGITAL VENTURES LIMITED

Online media & mobile platforms – Overnight Price: $1.06

Bell Potter rates ((FDV)) as Downgrade to Hold from Buy (3) –

Frontier Digital Ventures enjoyed a strong fourth quarter for FY19 with revenues up 74.6% year-on-year to $72.5m, exceeding all estimates, notes Bell Potter.

The broker expects margins to improve in FY20 and has increased revenue forecasts by 2.4%, 4.1%, and 3.1% in FY19, FY20 & FY21 respectively.

While Bell Potter expects more improvement over the long run, the recent share price surge has already started factoring this in and the broker downgrades the stock to Hold (Speculative) for now while the target price is at $1.30.

The report was published on January 31, 2020.

Target price is $1.30 Current Price is $1.06 Difference: $0.24

GSS    GENETIC SIGNATURES LIMITED

Pharmaceuticals & Biotech/Lifesciences – Overnight Price: $1.17

Bell Potter rates ((GSS)) as Buy (1) –

After revenues growing consecutively every quarter for the last four years, Genetic Signatures saw the second quarter FY20 break the trend, decreasing -21% year-on-year, notes Bell Potter. This decrease was primarily driven by the timing of order receipts and cycling strong comps, states the broker.

The company expects a strong second half and has reaffirmed its guidance of revenue growth to exceed 47% Compounded Annual Growth Rate (CAGR). Bell Potter is cautious and forecasts revenue growth of 38% only.

The broker’s net loss forecast for FY20 and FY21 increased by 13% and 30% respectively. One of the main reasons is the minimal contribution from the US due to FDA clearance for Enteric Protozoan kit expected in FY21.

The broker rates the stock a Buy with the target price reduced to $1.55 from $1.60.

The report was published on February 3, 2020.

Target price is $1.55 Current Price is $1.17 Difference: $0.38

Canaccord considers Mayfield Childcare to be well-positioned for growth, noting supply growth in Mayfield operated areas along with a better understanding of the new Child Care Subsidy (CCS) by parents. The broker considers both these factors beneficial to the demand in 2020.

Canaccord Genuity considers the stock a good investment and holds on to its Buy rating, with the target price revised to $1.35 from $1.40.

The broker anticipates the first half like-for-like sales decline of -7.5% while during the second half, this should reverse to a positive 1.7%.
