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

Daily Market Reports | Jul 06 2021

This story features ALTIUM, and other companies. For more info SHARE ANALYSIS: ALU

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.

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

Altium recently announced it had received a formal, non-binding, indicative and unsolicited proposal from Autodesk for the acquisition of 100% of Altium shares at $38.50.

Despite flagging coal volume weakness, Aurizon Holdings maintained its FY21 guidance for underlying earnings of between $870m – $910m, and maintained that on average it can achieve $500m – $650m of free cash flow (FCF).

The outlook is more ambitious for the bulk business, for which Aurizon is targeting to double its earnings contribution from around $114m (based on Jarden estimates) in FY21 to around $200m-plus by FY30.

CRN    CORONADO GLOBAL RESOURCES INC

Coal – Overnight Price: $0.90

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

While cautious that operational issues earlier in the year at Curragh -the open-cut, central Qld coal mine- could have slipped into the current quarter impacting production and unit costs, Bell Potter has upgraded its coal price outlook and lifted Coronado Global Resources' earnings per share estimates.

The broker is now forecasting calendar year 2021 1.0cps, previously -2.5cps, and calendar year 2022 up 17%, with no change in forecast for calendar year 2023.

EHL    EMECO HOLDINGS LIMITED

Mining Sector Contracting – Overnight Price: $1.08

Jarden rates ((EHL)) as Buy (1) –

Jarden has provided an update on the earnings and margin outlook for the mining and infrastructure services sector. According to the broker cautious sentiment may be overshadowing a potential strong cyclical upswing in mining activity, and Jarden takes a positive outlook on the sector.

Share prices of mining and infrastructure services companies are trading well below what Jarden would expect at this point in the cycle, based on previous cycle prices where companies were largely trading at a premium of roughly 2.6 times net tangible assets per share.

The broker also points to positive industry conditions, including capital expenditure, commodity prices and exploration.

Jarden highlights key risks to Emeco are lower Australian commodity export demand, inability to increase utilisation rates, equipment failure or supply chain impacts, and downturns in mining industry activity.

According to Jarden, Emeco is currently one of the best value companies in the sector for investors. Buy rating and target price of $1.55 retained.

This report was published on June 7, 2021.

Target price is $1.55 Current Price is $1.08 Difference: $0.47

Canaccord Genuity is still guiding to full volume recovery by FY24, but notes that the company has proved its ability to activate local catchments and operate profitably from a domestic market.

Jarden rates ((FLT)) as Initiation of coverage with Neutral (3) –

Jarden initiates coverage on Flight Centre Travel Group with a Neutral rating and a price target of $16.10.

The broker believes the medium-term outlook from both an earnings and return on investment capital potential is higher today than it was pre-covid.

With near-term earnings likely to be volatile and hard to forecast, the broker believes consensus is too optimistic, and will remain Neutral until consensus recalibrates.

GNC    GRAINCORP LIMITED

Agriculture – Overnight Price: $5.13

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

To reflect the high likelihood a seasonal peak in earnings is close to being reached, Bell Potter has downgraded GrainCorp to a Hold from a Buy.

To reflect the application of a lower multiple to through-the-cycle earnings, on the view the market is now de-rating earnings and no longer responsive to earnings upgrades at the perceived seasonal peak in earnings, Bell Potter has lowered the target price to $5.50 from $6.20.

Despite a record June crop forecast, Bell Potter notes historically the June report has proven the least accurate of the ABARES estimates, with a range of 69%-188% on variability since 2010.

The broker has upgraded net profit forecasts by 2% in FY22 and 4% in FY23, with the latter reflecting a higher assumed carryout.

This report was issued June 9, 2021.

Target price is $5.50 Current Price is $5.13 Difference: $0.37
If GNC meets the Bell Potter target it will return approximately 7% (excluding dividends, fees and charges).

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

After adjusting for non-core crops and adding in a nominal summer crop, the ABARES forecast implies an FY22 east coast crop volume at 22.0Mt, compared to the 10-year historical average at 18.5Mt and Wilsons' current FY22 forecast at 20.0Mt.

Given it remains very early in the season to forecast yield, the broker believes the area forecast is of particular interest.

Wilsons notes ABARES forecast at 10.8Mha is actually above last year, which delivered a record crop and 14% above the 10-year historical average at 9.5Mha.

Wilsons' market-weight rating and price target of $5.36 are both unchanged but currently under review.

IPH    IPH LIMITED

Legal – Overnight Price: $7.76

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

A stronger Australian dollar will cause around an -$11m drag on IPH's second half FY21 underlying earnings, with Bell Potter pointing to final underlying earnings of around $59m.

Despite this, the broker highlights earnings before this effect would have been closer to $70m, implying 6.5% year-on-year growth.

Without considering impacts of the Australian dollar, Bell Potter calculates the Australian and New Zealand sector to have contributed around $1.2m and the Asian sector to have contributed around $1.5m to earnings.

The broker points to this underlying business as evidence of IPH continuing to perform resiliently. The Buy rating and target price of $8.15 are retained.

This report was published on June 8, 2021.

Target price is $8.15 Current Price is $7.76 Difference: $0.39

JHC    JAPARA HEALTHCARE LIMITED

Aged Care & Seniors – Overnight Price: $1.25

Jarden rates ((JHC)) as Buy (1) –

Japara Healthcare has received a revised proposal from Calvary, offering an increased price per share of $1.20 from $1.04. The offer is still lower than Jarden's calculated implied equity value per share of $1.39.

The non-binding indicative proposal is for Calvary to acquire all shares in Japara Healthcare and is conditional on all Japara directors voting in favour of the offer.

Jarden highlights value in Japara's approximate $45m in real estate as land holdings portfolio, with the asset sale of that portfolio potentially reducing current leverage by -20%.

The broker also notes overlaying an existing operating platform and increasing benefit from scale could see potential cost savings of -$10-20m per annum.

The Buy rating is retained and the target price increases to $1.35 from $1.33.

The broker sees Nick Scali as a strong retailer with industry leading margins, a growing online offer, adjacent categories opportunities, and strong property backing.

NSR    NATIONAL STORAGE REIT

REITs – Overnight Price: $2.06

Goldman Sachs rates ((NSR)) as Sell (5) –

National Storage REIT's FY21 earnings per share (EPS) guidance range was increased to 8.5-8.6cps, up from 8.1-8.5cps. 

The REIT also announced a $325m equity raise to strengthen its balance sheet, provide investment capacity and funding flexibility, and introduced FY22 EPS growth guidance of at least 8%.

Despite a positive operating outlook for the REIT's organic growth, Goldman Sachs believes the equity raise, to bring the gearing range below its target range of 25%-40%, may impact EPS growth.

In the broker's view, the extended time for developments to reach stabilisation, combined with higher shares on issue post the announced equity raise, may be a headwind for earnings contributions going forward.

The Sell rating is unchanged and the target price is increased to $1.71 from $1.58.

This report was published on June 8, 2021.

Target price is $1.71 Current Price is $2.06 Difference: minus $0.35 (current price is over target).

Apparel & Footwear – Overnight Price: $27.57

Jarden rates ((PMV)) as Initiation of coverage with Overweight (2) –

Jarden initiates coverage of Premier Investments with an Overweight recommendation and a target price of $30.20.

The broker bases its recommendation on the company coming out of covid with a cleaner balance sheet, and a more capital light growth model via Smiggle wholesale and online.

Also contributing to Jarden's outlook are global growth opportunities through Peter Alexander, leveraging off global Smiggle distribution, and apparel brands which have growing ability to expand into new channels.

For FY21, Jarden is forecasting retail earnings of $323.7m versus recent company commentary noting it was confident in its ability to meet consensus at $318m. While risk has increased given the recent Melbourne lockdown, the broker believe targets should still be achievable.

Nearer term, the broker sees key catalysts being consensus upgrades into FY22 on underestimation of the reopening benefit, further news of more wholesale doors for Smiggle and likely currency tailwinds (15-20%) for cost of goods sold.

RMD    RESMED INC

Medical Equipment & Devices – Overnight Price: $32.95

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

With vaccine roll-out progressing well in most key markets, ResMed sees scope to reach pre-covid levels of new patient starts within the next two quarters.

In Goldman Sachs' view, evidence of this recovery is the key factor to support a sustained re-rating in the stock.

With cost growth now increasing and revenues not yet normalised, Goldman Sachs sees scope for near-term margin pressure.

However, the broker notes management's keenness to emphasise the target to continue to deliver positive operating leverage through the mid/longer-term.

The Neutral rating and the target of $28.40 are both retained.

SCP    SHOPPING CENTRES AUSTRALASIA PROPERTY GROUP RE LIMITED

REITs – Overnight Price: $2.46

Moelis rates ((SCP)) as Buy (1) –

Shopping Centres Australasia expects net tangible assets (NTA) to increase by 11%, to $2.50 from $2.25, while second half FY21 distribution of 6.70cpu implies a full-year distribution of 12.40cpu.

Neighbourhood cap rates compressed to 5.75% from 6.25%, while sub regional cap rates compressed to 6.41% from 6.84%.

The group has acquired a further two properties: Mt Isa for $44m at a cap rate of 7.50%, and Warnbro Petrol Station for $5.1m at a cap rate of 5.69%. The company has also entered into an agreement to acquire Marketplace Raymond Terrace for $87.5m.

Moelis expects gearing to remain below 29%, with Marketplace Raymond Terrace likely to be somewhat funded by the dividend reinvestment plan.

With a low-cost, internalised management structure the group has historically traded at a premium to NTA averaging roughly 10%, and the broker hence views current levels as an attractive entry.

The Buy rating is retained and the target price increases to $2.68 from $2.64.

SUL    SUPER RETAIL GROUP LIMITED

Automobiles & Components – Overnight Price: $12.78

Jarden rates ((SUL)) as Initiation of coverage with Underweight (2) –

Jarden initiates coverage on Super retail Group with an Underweight rating and a $12.20 price target.

The broker is forecasting second half FY21 sales growth of around 31% due to MacPac and BCF, and expects second half FY21 earnings growth of 100% versus first half FY21 of 112%.

At around 5x FY22, with risk of heightened competition from marketplaces, Jarden sees risk that the multiple moves closer to historical levels in the high teens.

Coupled with risk around heightened capex and falling return in capital invested, the broker views risk to the downside.

To become more positive, Jarden would need to see the group move more aggressively into right-to-play categories, leveraging its existing data/supply-chain capabilities, which are top-quartile in the mid-cap retail space.

 This report was issued June 9, 2021.

Household & Personal Products – Overnight Price: $5.62

Jarden rates ((TRS)) as Buy (1) –

The Reject Shop is guiding to FY21 sales of $776-778m and underlying earnings of $8-10m, citing trading impacts and freight delays and costs as impacting results.

Jarden has cut its FY21 underlying earnings forecast by around -26% accordingly, now predicting a total of $8.5m, and cut FY22 forecasts similarly in anticipation of slow recovery of consumer spending. Despite weaker-than-expected sales, Jarden notes that operating de-leverage was better than sales would imply.

Jarden considers long-term prospects of The Reject Shop continue to improve. The Buy rating is retained and the target price decreases to $10.00 from $11.00.

TWE    TREASURY WINE ESTATES LIMITED

Food, Beverages & Tobacco – Overnight Price: $11.49

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

Treasury Wine Estates took market share in May with a decline of -5.3% against a market down -14%, with both volume and price driving the outperformance.

While Chinese imports were down -8.6% in April, and -94.8% year-on-year on a value basis, Australian alcohol exports are showing greater resilience, which to Goldman Sachs suggests alternate market focus from industry.

Key upside risks flagged by Goldman Sachs include declines in the AUD/USD FX rate, a faster recovery of trading in the US operations,  improvement in China tariff scenario, and tangible progress on the company's proposed demerger of Penfolds.

The Neutral rating and target price of $10.60 are both retained.

WHC    WHITEHAVEN COAL LIMITED

Coal – Overnight Price: $2.05

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

While strengthening thermal coal prices are mitigating the ongoing issues relating to the Narrabri longwall ground conditions and Whitehaven Coal's highly geared balance sheet, Bell Potter remains cautious near term on quarterly production performance, product quality and hence price realisation.

The net impacts to the broker's earnings per share estimates from coal price upgrades, adjustments to unit costs and realised prices include FY21 -8.4cps, previously -5.7cps, FY22 up 130%, and FY23 up 61%.

Bell Potter believes Whitehaven Coal's assets should de-risk as Maules Creek in-pit dumping ramps up and autonomous haulage is optimised in second half FY21, and as the Narrabri longwall returns to shallower and less complex coal geology in 2022.
