Australian Broker Call *Extra* Edition – Jul 28, 2021

Daily Market Reports | Jul 28 2021

This story features AUDINATE GROUP LIMITED, and other companies. For more info SHARE ANALYSIS: AD8

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.

AD8    AUDINATE GROUP LIMITED

Hardware & Equipment – Overnight Price: $9.51

Canaccord Genuity rates ((AD8)) as Buy (1) –

Canaccord Genuity assesses Audinate Group provided its best trading update/upgrade since its IPO, with the company expecting to report FY21 revenues 5% above the broker's forecast.

The broker points out this represents 23% growth, despite covid headwinds, supplier shut-downs and broader industry chip shortages. The result was considered driven by strong demand from OEM partners, and a general uplift in industry/structural growth rates.

Management's FY22 guidance noted the company “is well placed to return to US$ revenue growth in the historical range”, representing a growth rate between 26% and 31%. This implies FY22 revenue between US$31m-US$32m, points out the analyst.

The Buy rating is unchanged and the target price is increased to $10.50 from $9.

The analyst believes the earnings inflection point for the group has likely begun, due to improving sentiment and confidence in the global AV space, with a mooted recovery in 2022. The beginning of the turnaround in the Live sound/events arena is thought to have occurred.

AOF    AUSTRALIAN UNITY OFFICE FUND

REITs – Overnight Price: $2.35

Moelis rates ((AOF)) as Hold (3) –

Australian Unity Office Fund recently announced that its external manager, Australian Unity, intends to pursue the potential merger with the Australian Unity Diversified Property Fund (DPF), currently unlisted.

While proposed merger ratios have yet to be tabled, pending due diligence, DPF unitholders were advised that reference will be made to the respective net tangible assets (NTA) of the two funds.

Moelis notes a combined entity would have a gearing ratio of 35%, which will likely increase given the funding requirements of DPF’s retail developments in Melbourne VIC, and Busselton WA.

The broker believes the proposed merger has the potential to somewhat de-risk Australian Unity Office Fund's medium-term expiry profile and gives the fund scale with potential for index inclusion.

Hold rating retained. Target price of $2.44.

BGL    BELLEVUE GOLD LIMITED

Gold & Silver – Overnight Price: $0.95

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

Due to extensive drilling programs undertaken at Marceline/Deacon North and Deacon in recent months, Bellevue Gold has achieved double-digit increases in its total resources by 16%, which the company believes has not come at the expense of lower grades.

Canaccord Genuity continues to be impressed by the company growing the resource base while holding the grade constant at circa 10g/t.

With a growing high-grade resource and reserve base, pragmatic mine plan which should continue to improve over time, and a management team of high calibre professionals, the broker continues to see Bellevue Gold as an exciting development proposition.

Buy (speculative) rating is maintained. Target price $1.40.

This report was published on July 8, 2021.

Target price is $1.40 Current Price is $0.95 Difference: $0.45

Mining – Overnight Price: $0.41

Shaw and Partners rates ((BML)) as Buy (1) –

Shaw and Partners believes the early results from Boab Metals' update on its Phase V drilling program at the Sorby Hills Lead-Silver Project are highly encouraging with mineralisation encountered outside the existing resource envelopes and pit shell design.

The broker notes over 3,000m of drilling across 31 holes have now been completed, and 1,100 core samples have been sent to the laboratory in Darwin for assaying, with early indications looking highly encouraging.

CEL    CHALLENGER EXPLORATION LIMITED

Gold & Silver – Overnight Price: $0.28

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

Challenger Exploration has agreed with project vendors to acquire 100% ownership of the flagship Hualilan Gold Project in Argentina. Under the previous agreement, it was earning up to 75%.

While no set price for the issuance of shares has been mentioned, Canaccord Genuity assumes it could expect this to be at $0.30, which values the total transaction at $40m for 75% of the project.

In Canaccord's view, this appears to be a fantastic deal and also shows that those vendors who are taking stock are clearly aligned with the company and see the same upside that the broker's valuation portrays.

Speculative Buy rating and the price target of $0.60 remain unchanged.

This report was issued July 9, 2021

Target price is $0.60 Current Price is $0.28 Difference: $0.32

CGF    CHALLENGER LIMITED

Wealth Management & Investments – Overnight Price: $5.69

Jarden rates ((CGF)) as Downgrade to Neutral from Overweight (3) –

With Challenger shares now trading closer to Jarden's $6.25 adjusted net tangible asset (NTA) valuation, the broker believes further value upside from here becomes more reliant on improved growth in longer-duration and higher-margin retirement products, rather than short-duration term annuities and term deposits.

The broker also notes delivering a sustainable return on equity (ROE) comfortably above the company's cost of equity is an outcome that partially hinges on credit spreads widening.

The broker sees limited value upside and lowers the rating to Neutral from Overweight.

Target price of $6.15 is retained.

This report was initially released on July 7, 2021.

Target price is $6.15 Current Price is $5.69 Difference: $0.46
If CGF meets the Jarden target it will return approximately 8% (excluding dividends, fees and charges).
Current consensus price target is $6.01, suggesting upside of 5.7%(ex-dividends)

CSS    CLEAN SEAS SEAFOOD LIMITED

Overnight Price: $0.54

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

Bell Potter initiates coverage of Clean Seas Seafood with a Buy recommendation and a target price of $0.60.

Clean Seas is a vertically integrated Kingfish producer operating hatcheries, farming, and processing facilities, which had achieved compound growth in sales volumes of 20%-plus annually since FY15.

The broker believes the company provides investors with operating leverage to a re-opening in global foodservice channels resulting in the combination of stronger sales volumes, higher selling prices, and a downdraft in the cost of goods sold.

The report was issued 8 July, 2021.

Target price is $0.60 Current Price is $0.54 Difference: $0.06
If CSS meets the Bell Potter target it will return approximately 11% (excluding dividends, fees and charges).

CSX    CLEANSPACE HOLDINGS LIMITED

Medical Equipment & Devices – Overnight Price: $1.39

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

Cleanspace Holdings reported their second half FY21 result, with sales of $10.2m, missing Bell Potter's expectations by 40%, and with fourth-quarter FY21 (revenues of $3.2m) declining -54% versus third quarter FY21.

Bell Potter attributes ongoing weakness to the vaccine roll-out and extended lockdowns as factors impacting purchasing patterns.

Bell Potter views Cleanspace product as differentiated with a high level of clinical utility.

The broker's scenario analyses provide upside to $2.50 with strong salesforce execution and downside to $1.20 per share, dependent on rates of uptake and consumables utilisation.

Hold rating unchanged, and the target price is lowered to $1.70 from $2.28.

This report was published on July 9, 2021.

Target price is $1.70 Current Price is $1.39 Difference: $0.31

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

CleanSpace expects fourth quarter FY21 revenue of $3.2m which is materially below Wilsons' forecast of $7.3m.

The broker's revised FY22 revenue forecast of $19.2m represents 32% growth versus an annualised first half FY20.

Wilsons gross margin expectations are also reduced by -200bps given adverse shifts in segment mix.

The Market Weight rating is retained and the target price is lowered to $1.75 from $2.00.

This report was published on July 8, 2021. 

Target price is $1.75 Current Price is $1.39 Difference: $0.36

DEG    DE GREY MINING LIMITED

Gold & Silver – Overnight Price: $1.14

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

Bell Potter believes there still remains significant potential for further Resource growth, after De Grey Mining announced the maiden Resource for the Hemi discovery.

The Resource was at the upper-end of the broker's expectations, and more than quadruple the size of the prior Mallina Gold Project Resource. Bell Potter maintains its Buy rating and increases its target price to $1.71 from $1.66.

The analyst notes the Resource is supportive of a potential “Tier 1” gold project (over 300kozpa for more than 10 years). It's considered to potentially offer a long mine life, low costs, operational flexibility and further Resource growth, all set in a top global mining jurisdiction.

This report was published on July 9, 2021.

Target price is $1.71 Current Price is $1.14 Difference: $0.57
If DEG meets the Bell Potter target it will return approximately 50% (excluding dividends, fees and charges).

DGL    DGL GROUP LIMITED

Commercial Services & Supplies – Overnight Price: $1.50

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

DGL Group recently purchased Victorian digital label printing business, Labels Connect, for $1.55m, marking its first acquisition as a listed entity.

While conceivably immaterial in size, Bell Potter uses this opportunity to incorporate both the acquisition of Labels Connect and, in the broker's view, the possibility of a series of accretive acquisitions on DGL Group’s near-term horizon.

The broker's forecasts now include $42m of acquisitions in FY22 at a 6x EV/EBITDA take-out multiple, which Bell Potter considers to be conservative.

Buy rating is maintained and the price target increases to $1.65 from $1.50.

This report was issued July 8, 2021.

Target price is $1.65 Current Price is $1.50 Difference: $0.15

DOC    DOCTOR CARE ANYWHERE GROUP PLC

Healthcare services – Overnight Price: $0.88

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

Given that it could be up to two years before a significant level of herd immunity begins to develop across the UK let alone globally,  Bell Potter concludes that telemedicine is here to stay.

As a result, the broker believes Doctor Care Anywhere Group will continue to experience rapid growth in revenues over the next 2 years and is forecasting revenues to double in FY21.

The Buy rating and the target price of $1.70 are both unchanged.

This report was published on July 9, 2021.

Industrial Sector Contractors & Engineers – Overnight Price: $0.13

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

Envirosuite announced it generated new annual recurring revenue sales of $2.3m in fourth quarter FY21, a new quarterly record for the company but slightly below the stated target of $2.4m.

There is no change in Bell Potter's FY21 forecasts which were last adjusted in early June post the capital raising.

Bell Potter believes the next potential catalyst for the stock is the release of the FY21 result in mid-August when the broker expects the FY21 guidance to be met and an update on the outlook for FY22.

Buy rating and target price of $0.15 are both unchanged.

This report was published on July 9, 2021.

Target price is $0.15 Current Price is $0.13 Difference: $0.02

Shaw and Partners rates ((FZO)) as Buy (1) –

Family Zone Cyber Safety has reported accelerated growth rate in market share, students and annual recurring revenue in the US. The company added US net market share of 1.7% in the fourth quarter.

Wilsons rates ((PNI)) as Downgrade to Market Weight from Overweight (3) –

Despite a difficult May, Pinnacle Investment Management Group expects net performance fees to be $8.4m, which Wilsons believes highlights the benefit of a diverse portfolio of affiliates and funds which have greater reliability in performance.
