Australian Broker Call *Extra* Edition – Apr 06, 2021

Daily Market Reports | Apr 06 2021

This story features AMA GROUP LIMITED, and other companies. For more info SHARE ANALYSIS: AMA

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.

AMA    AMA GROUP LIMITED

Automobiles & Components – Overnight Price: $0.58

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

Bell Potter downgrades forecast earnings after assuming a shortage of both staff and parts at present which is negatively impacting both top line revenue and margins, due to a lower number of repairs. The broker forecasts FY21 reported profit (NPAT) around breakeven.

The analyst deduced a shortage after a review of job vacancy ads over the past weeks on sites such as Seek ((SEK)) and Jora. The grounding of the Suez Canal container ship may also cause further disruption in a tight global market for new vehicle parts.

The Buy rating is unchanged and the target lowered to $0.85 from $0.95.

Shaw and Partners outlines the company will either need the 1976 Coal Policy repealed (again) or require an exemption, after the Alberta government has re-instated the Policy. This prohibits open-cut mining on its mining leases.

While the news is undoubtedly negative, the broker feels the -70% fall in the share price to just 7.4 cents on the recommencement of trading looks like a major overreaction. Buy rating maintained and target reduces to $0.30 from $1.05.

The analyst says the company will now focus all attention on the consultation process and has halted work on the pre-feasibility study. There was a cash position of $4.9m at 15 March 2021 and management is implementing a range of cost reduction measures.

REITs – Overnight Price: $2.88

Moelis rates ((AVN)) as Downgrade to Sell from Buy (5) –

Moelis believes Aventus Group is well positioned to benefit from cap rate compression and subsequent net tangible assets (NTA) uplift.

Like-for-like growth across the sector has also been unprecedented and tenants have continued to benefit from strong government stimulus and increased consumer spending in the household and lifestyle segments.

However, the analyst views the above positives as being more than priced into the current share price and downgrades the rating to Sell from Buy and maintains the $2.77 target.

This report was released on March 29, 2021.

Target price is $2.77 Current Price is $2.88 Difference: minus $0.11 (current price is over target).

SLA    SILK LASER AUSTRALIA LIMITED

Healthcare services – Overnight Price: $4.64

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

With recent press coverage of  a franchisor/franchisee dispute at Laser Clinics Australia, Wilsons feels Silk Laser Australia has an opportunity to differentiate itself and pursue new corporatised models for the industry.

The genuinely corporatised service models the broker observes across healthcare (e.g. dental, radiology, veterinary) may be an attractive option for the non-surgical aesthetics (NSA) sector. The Market-weight rating and $4.45 target are retained.

As the only pure-play ASX-listed operator in the NSA sector, the company can also demonstrate a focus on franchisee profitability, in addition to its own financial success as a franchisor, notes the analyst.
