Australian Broker Call *Extra* Edition – Aug 19, 2020

Daily Market Reports | Aug 19 2020

This story features 5G NETWORKS LIMITED, and other companies. For more info SHARE ANALYSIS: 5GN

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.

Telecommunication – Overnight Price: $1.87

Wilsons rates ((5GN)) as Initiation of coverage with Overweight (1) –

Wilsons initiates coverage on 5GN Networks with an Overweight rating and a target price of $2.14.

AFP    AFT PHARMACEUTICALS LIMITED

Pharmaceuticals & Biotech/Lifesciences – Overnight Price: $4.45

Bell Potter rates ((AFP)) as Initiation of coverage with Buy (1) –

AFT Pharmaceuticals develops, licenses and sells pharmaceutical products in New Zealand, Australia, South East Asia and internationally. The company also in-licenses certain other products to supplement its own range.

The portfolio consists mainly of over the counter medicines for common ailments including pain management, eye care, cold and flu as well as supplements.

According to Bell Potter, historically the company's revenues have been derived from Australia and New Zealand. The largest of several revenue generating brands is Maxigesic. However, international expansion is planned for this brand and the ensuing royalties are expected by the broker to drive considerable earnings growth over the next 3-5 years.

The founder owns around 70% of the company, which was listed in 2015.

The analyst notes the most important short-term catalyst is the potential approval of Maxigesic tablets for the US market in November, 2020 and over the next two years there will be multiple earnings catalysts, including entry into major new markets.

Bell Potter initiates coverage with a Buy and a target price of $5.00.

The report was published on August 4, 2020.

Target price is $5.00 Current Price is $4.45 Difference: $0.55

Transportation & Logistics – Overnight Price: $3.51

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

Alliance Aviation enjoyed an "extraordinary" second half with profit (PBT) up 24% led by strong contract and charter activity, comments Wilsons.

The analyst notes the outlook remains strong and is well supported by the recently announced acquisition of additional aircraft. Furthermore, prospects for the conversion of recent charter activity into contracted revenue look good.

BIN    BINGO INDUSTRIES LIMITED

Industrial Sector Contractors & Engineers – Overnight Price: $2.00

Goldman Sachs rates ((BIN)) as Neutral (3) –

Goldman Sachs makes negative revisions to earnings estimates for Bingo Industries. This is a result of the general short-term macroeconomic outlook, and in particular, potential downside weakness in construction activity.

The analyst cites recent building approval data for June showing a -4% decline month on month. The broker suggests the next key catalyst will be the FY20 result on August 25.

Goldman Sachs reduces EPS forecasts by -8%, -14% and -24% for FY20, FY21 and FY22, respectively.

The Neutral rating is maintained. The target price is decreased -6% to $2.25.

This report was published on August 6, 2020.

BWP    BWP TRUST

REITs – Overnight Price: $4.08

Moelis rates ((BWP)) as Reinstatement of coverage with Sell (5) –

BWP Trust delivered distributable earnings of $117.4m or 18.29c earnings per unit (EPU). However, Moelis notes the result included one-off income in the form of $2.7m in forfeited deposits, the absence of which would have required a greater capital contribution to meet dividend per unit (DPU) expectations.

The FY20 DPU was 18.29 cents and the FY21 outlook is for flat distribution growth. The broker explains the Trust trades at a 29% premium to NTA, as it is viewed as a safe haven.

However, the weighted average lease expiry (WALE) has consistently declined over recent years and there is an ongoing drag on growth where Bunnings looks to vacate an asset or two every year.

Moelis reinstates coverage with a Sell rating and target price of $3.23.

This report was published on August 6, 2020.

Target price is $3.23 Current Price is $4.08 Difference: minus $0.85 (current price is over target).

COF    CENTURIA OFFICE REIT

REITs – Overnight Price: $1.91

Moelis rates ((COF)) as Reinstatement of coverage with a Buy (1) –

Centuria Office REIT reported FY20 funds from operations (FFO) of 18.6 cents and an ending occupancy of 98%, with 4.7 year weighted average lease expiry (WALE) and 15% expiry in FY21.

Due to many positive portfolio features, particularly the relatively benign lease expiry profile over the next two years, Moelis believes the Trust’s income performance could exceed negative market expectations.

No FFO guidance was given. The distribution for FY20 was 17.8 cents and FY21 distribution guidance was 16.5 cents. The analyst expects  the combination of a FY21 distribution yield of 8.5% (8% in FY22) and a 22% discount to last NTA, to provide support at current levels.

EHL    EMECO HOLDINGS LTD

Mining Sector Contracting – Overnight Price: $1.04

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

Emeco Holdings reported a strong FY20 result with earnings in line with its guidance, comments the broker. The company also guided towards a better than expected FY21 outlook.

Operating income was up 15% while net profit grew by 23.1%. Bell Potter notes earnings were hit by the soft coal markets driven by less utilisation in the Eastern Region due to the pandemic.

This was partially offset by a better than expected result from Pit N Portal. Western Regions' exposure to gold and iron ore also helped. The broker considers the company's rental business outlook to be better than expected. 

The broker has revised its earnings estimates downwards for FY21 while increasing it for FY22. Bell Potter reiterates its Buy recommendation with the target price increasing to $1.60 from $1.52.
