Australian Broker Call *Extra* Edition – Jul 29, 2020

Daily Market Reports | Jul 29 2020

This story features LIFE360, INC, and other companies. For more info SHARE ANALYSIS: 360

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.

Megaport released its June quarter trading update. Goldman Sachs reports revenues and services adopted per customer trended favourably. New customers, ports and services volumes declined on a quarterly basis.

The impact of covid-19 has been weaker than expected, highlights the broker. This was likely due to raising capital of over $100m in the last six months,

MSV    MITCHELL SERVICES LIMITED

Mining Sector Contracting – Overnight Price: $0.55

The company attained the mid-point of FY20 guidance for revenue and earnings. This was above Wilsons estimates and the broker describes it as a quality result and highlights the strong leverage in the business.

PYG    PAYGROUP LIMITED

Cloud services – Overnight Price: $0.72

Canaccord Genuity rates ((PYG)) as Buy (1) –

PayGroup has acquired TalentOz, a small cloud-based human capital management (HCM) and payroll software business servicing clients largely in Malaysia and India. The cost of acquisition was -$1.2m in a primarily scrip-based deal.

TalentOz is complementary technology that builds out the HCM side of PayGroup's offering, according to Canaccord Genuity.

Broadening the services the company can provide across HCM and payroll enhances the company's ability to provide a viable, cost-effective solution for SME's and mid-size multinational corporations across Asia, and should drive some upsell, states the analyst.

The Buy rating is maintained. The target price is increased to $1.08 from $1.05.

Commercial Services & Supplies – Overnight Price: $0.09

Quickstep Holdings manufactures advanced composites for the aerospace, defence, automotive, rail and other manufacturing sectors in Australia and globally.

The company reported a solid 4Q20 result amid covid-19 and supply chain disruptions, according to Canaccord Genuity.

The broker expects some modest margin expansion and capital expenditure is largely spent in advance, meaning the company is at a free cash flow inflection point. The analyst suggests this may be underappreciated by the market.

However, the analyst also acknowledges the most tangible catalyst for a re-rating has been lost after the company was unsuccessful in winning a key near-term contract.
