Australian Broker Call *Extra* Edition – Aug 02, 2021

Daily Market Reports | Aug 02 2021

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.

Infrastructure & Utilities – Overnight Price: $6.27

In the June quarter weighted average traffic and revenue were up 68.5% and 57.3%, respectively. Jarden notes heavy truck traffic has fully recovered on APRR to 2019 levels while light vehicle traffic has returned to around 80%.

As the EU has introduced the health pass system, cross-border travel resumed in June and this should help light vehicle traffic in the second half, the broker suggests.

Hence, FY21 traffic could return to around 92% of 2019 levels. The broker retains an Overweight rating and raises the target to $7.05 from $6.85.

Agriculture – Overnight Price: $0.13

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

Australian Potash has provided a development update for its Lake Wells Sulphate of Potash Project (LSOP) in Western Australia. It appears to be progressing and derisking against a backdrop of tightening potash markets, notes Shaw and Partners.

Early site works have commenced and an update on the project’s debt programme is expected by the analyst over the coming weeks, and the Final Investment Decision is expected over the coming months.

The broker believes a significant inflection in potash spot prices has occurred in the past few weeks (up 20%), due to EU sanctions on Belarus, a country responsible for around 20% of global muriate of potash (MOP) supply.

According to the broker, the company is making good operational and clinical progress, and an inflection point in the September quarter could be likely. Bell Potter forecasts Aroa Biosurgery to be underlying earnings positive in FY24.

AWC    ALUMINA LIMITED

Aluminium, Bauxite & Alumina – Overnight Price: $1.67

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

The alumina segment of the company delivered lower June quarter earnings quarter-on-quarter, as the alumina price index (API) was lower, and the Australian dollar, energy and caustic soda were all higher.

The analyst notes most, if not all variables (like price, costs and capex spend/timing) have been flagged previously by Alcoa/AWC. Hence, the broker's 2021 dividend expectations remain unchanged at 5.4 cents. 

Shaw and Partners retains its Buy rating and $2.20 target price.

Target price is $2.20 Current Price is $1.67 Difference: $0.53

Boab Metals has acquired the Manbarrum zinc-lead-silver project for $500,000 plus a 1.25% royalty. Shaw and Partners considers this a sensible strategic acquisition which will provide additional growth options once Sorby Hills is brought into production.

It also adds additional zinc resources that could lead to zinc concentrate being added to the product suite, providing additional value for Sorby Hills.

BPT    BEACH ENERGY LIMITED

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

FY21 production was at the upper end of guidance while operating earnings are also expected in the top end of the $850-900m guidance range for FY21.

Despite the issues with the Western Flank, Bell Potter observes Beach Energy can still expand production from its growth assets. Benefits will also come from tighter east coast gas markets.

Canaccord Genuity rates ((BPT)) as Hold (3) –

June quarter production was in line with expectations, although Canaccord Genuity points out this comes off a revised base after a disappointing downgrade in April.

Gas prices continue to strengthen yet the broker remains concerned about oil production from the Western Flank. This is down -40% from its peak in the March quarter of 2020.

The broker continues to believe the decline of Western Flank is terminal, and expects the upcoming seven-well program will test this view. Hold rating and $1.51 target maintained.

This report was published on July 22, 2021.

Target price is $1.51 Current Price is $1.20 Difference: $0.31
If BPT meets the Canaccord Genuity target it will return approximately 26% (excluding dividends, fees and charges).

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

June quarter production missed Goldman Sachs' expectations and revenue was also below. The broker expects the production guidance for FY22 that will be provided at the FY21 result will be a key catalyst following downgrades to Western Flank, where the company has flagged maintenance and outages across some assets.

This is expected to be offset somewhat by Kupe and Otway. A combination of a bullish oil price outlook, a small valuation discount, and the funding capacity for accretive M&A prevents Goldman Sachs from taking a more negative view.

A Neutral rating is maintained with the target reduced to $1.55 from $1.65.

This report was published on July 21, 2021.

Target price is $1.55 Current Price is $1.20 Difference: $0.35

Jarden rates ((BPT)) as Overweight (2) –

June quarter production missed Jarden's estimates because of outages in the Cooper Basin and sustained high declines in the Western Flank. Sales revenue was 5% ahead of estimates because of strong oil and condensate pricing.

The broker trims FY22 production estimates to 23mmboe and remains cautious, although key growth developments underpin an Overweight rating. Target is steady at $1.55.

This report was published on July 21, 2021.

Target price is $1.55 Current Price is $1.20 Difference: $0.35
If BPT meets the Jarden target it will return approximately 29% (excluding dividends, fees and charges).

JP Morgan rates ((BPT)) as Overweight (1) –

While production, sales volumes and revenue for the June quarter were all below expectations, JP Morgan notes Beach Energy expects to reach the top end of full year earnings (EBITDA) guidance.

The broker remains positive on the stock on the basis of valuation, growth and the strong balance sheet. The company’s exposure to east coast gas prices, which have strengthened materially in recent weeks, is considered another positive.

The provision of FY22 guidance at August results will be crucial, in the analyst's opinion. This is because management has recently moved away from its medium-term outlook, following the well-interference issues at the Western Flank.

This report was published on July 22, 2021.

Target price is $1.75 Current Price is $1.20 Difference: $0.55

COE    COOPER ENERGY LIMITED

Crude Oil – Overnight Price: $0.23

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

Weaker June quarter production from Sole (Gippsland) was the result of ongoing issues at APA Group’s (( APA)) Orbost Gas Plant, notes Bell Potter. Also, at Casino-Henry (Otway), there was reduced availability at the Iona Gas Plant.

However, the company’s gas sales were supported by third party purchases, with compensation from APA Group preserving cash margins, explains the broker. Bell Potter retains its Buy rating and $0.45 target price.

In FY22, the analyst expects a step-change in production and earnings. Sole Gas Sales Agreements are now operating, and production improvements across the company’s Gippsland and Otway Basin projects are expected.

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

After June quarter results, Canaccord Genuity lowers its target price to $0.45 from $0.49, on the back of more conservative assumptions.

FY21 production of 2.63mboe missed the broker's estimate of 2.75mboe, while capex of -$32.3m was under the -$43m forecast. The Orbost Gas Plant, which processes Sole gas, continues to struggle with foaming/fouling in the H2S removal circuit.

As a consequence, the broker lowers estimated FY22 production from Sole to 16PJ (44TJ/d) and the company's forecast earnings (EBITDA) to $92m. Canaccord Genuity maintains its Buy rating.

This research update was released on July 20, 2021.

In a June quarter recap, Canaccord Genuity downgrades its rating to Sell from Hold and lowers its target price to $4 from $4.55, on model revisions for Cowal and Red Lake, and an overall valuation multiple reduction.

The broker notes output was lower than expected at Cowal, Ernest Henry, Mt Rawdon and Mungari, while Red Lake was in-line and Mt Carlton was a beat on higher grades.

HUB    HUB24 LIMITED

Wealth Management & Investments – Overnight Price: $24.06

JP Morgan rates ((HUB)) as Underweight (5) –

After a strong fourth quarter update, JP Morgan still retains its Underweight rating for Hub24. It's believed the current valuation is difficult to justify, given the risk to Hub24's margins from increasing competition and a persistent low interest rate environment. 

The broker lifts its price target to $20.40 from $19, driven by the analyst's discounted cashflow model and forecast earnings upgrades. Strong flows were largely attributed to the bulk ClearView Wealth transition, and a smaller contribution from Xplore Wealth.

Retailing – Overnight Price: $10.39

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

Canaccord Genuity is encouraged by the trading update, as the company appears to have passed the worst in its operating performance.

With around 60% of the Australian population currently in various stages of lockdown and retail stores being forced to shut in Sydney, the broker believes this should ensure a rebound in earnings in FY22.

The broker considers the stock materially "under owned" by domestic institutions and believes the longer the domestic lockdown, the better the short-term earnings momentum will be for Kogan.com. Buy rating and $14 target maintained.

Jarden rates ((KGN)) as Upgrade to Underweight from Neutral (2) –

The trading update has flagged sales growth of 52.5% in FY21, in line with Jarden's expectations. This was driven by active customer growth of over 46%.

The broker notes the inventory position, while stabilising, remains elevated, although the increasing portion of private-label product necessitates a higher level of stock.

Jarden lowers revenue forecasts by -5-6% for FY22-23, reducing exclusive brands sales and factoring in continued promotional activity to clear the inventory.

Amid earnings uncertainty, the broker downgrades to Underweight from Neutral. Target is reduced to $10.12 from $10.63.

Medical Equipment & Devices – Overnight Price: $1.13

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

Bell Potter initiates coverage on Lumos Diagnostics with a Buy (Speculative) rating and $1.70 target price. The company maintains a diagnostics business with two key segments.

The Services business develops and commercialises point of care diagnostics, while the Product business utilises the company's proprietary technology platform.

The platform allows the company's FebriDx test to rapidly differentiate between viral and bacterial infections, with high levels of accuracy and sensitivity. The test is approved in the EU and Canada and management anticipates FDA 510k approval this calendar year.

FebriDx has the same or better reported outcomes with robust data-sets, and is faster to operate than its closest competitors, points out the broker. This makes it a very attractive diagnostic and triage tool, especially for GP and urgent care offices, notes Bell Potter.

LPD    LEPIDICO LIMITED

Overnight Price: $0.02

Shaw and Partners rates ((LPD)) as Initiation of coverage with Buy (1) –

Shaw and Partners initiates coverage on Lepidico with a Buy recommendation and $0.031 target price.

Lepidico has developed proprietary technology for extracting lithium from mica minerals, which the broker believes opens up a new source of lithium to supply rapidly growing demand from lithium ion batteries.

Assuming the company is successful at pioneering an alternative source of lithium to the traditional brine and spodumene producers, the broker believes the $0.031 target – which is based only on the Phase 1 plant – is likely to prove very conservative.

This report was issued July 21, 2021.

PWH    PWR HOLDINGS LIMITED

Automobiles & Components – Overnight Price: $7.33

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

While Bell Potter does not expect PWR Holdings to provide FY22 guidance, the broker expects a key differentiating factor of the company's result next month to be the positive outlook for FY22 and beyond on the back of anticipated continued growth in each of the company’s four key divisions.

The broker continues to expect a strong FY21 result with forecast revenue and net profit growth of 28% and 34% respectively.

Bell Potter also continues to expect strong growth in both FY22 and FY23 with forecast double-digit growth in both revenue and net profit.

Healthcare services – Overnight Price: $64.14

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

Wilsons notes the cash bid for UK operator Spire failed to secure the requisite shareholder support in order to proceed.

The broker suggests Ramsay Health Care may pursue alternative strategies to secure these assets at a later date because the combination appears too compelling to abandon altogether.

S32    SOUTH32 LIMITED

Mining – Overnight Price: $2.97

Goldman Sachs rates ((S32)) as Buy (1) –

Alumina production increased 17% and Illawarra metallurgical coal 15% in the June quarter. Manganese production and alumina pricing were better than Goldman Sachs expected, offset by weaker alumina and zinc production as well as soft manganese pricing.

The sale of South Africa Energy Coal has been completed and strengthens the balance sheet, while in the broker's opinion potentially unlocking up to US$1bn in capital returns over the next few years.

Goldman Sachs retains a Buy rating and reduces the target to $3.70 from $3.80.

Shaw and Partners rates ((S32)) as Buy (1) –

South32 sustained record annual production at Worsley alumina and Brazil alumina, with both refineries benefiting from high plant availability. Illawarra metallurgical coal also delivered an increase in production.

Shaw and Partners assesses the company continues to provide stable, consistent and reliable production, noting a couple of record numbers in the quarterly.

Price tailwinds across key commodities will also assist margins heading into FY22. An additional update on the Dendrobium extension project is expected by the end of the year. The broker retains a Buy rating with a $3.30 target.

This report was published on July 22, 2021.

SEK    SEEK LIMITED

Jobs & Skilled Labour Services – Overnight Price: $29.27

Goldman Sachs rates ((SEK)) as Downgrade to Sell from Neutral (5) –

Following a record quarter for Seek, Goldman Sachs has increased earnings per share forecasts for FY21 and FY22 by 8% and 14% respectively. The broker is now expecting underlying earnings of $498m for FY21, up from $480m. 

However, it is Goldman Sachs' view that consensus forecasts through to FY23 are too optimistic and as a result the broker's FY23 underlying earnings forecast is -9% down on consensus. 

Goldman Sachs notes ongoing employment strength is likely to be offset by a decline in job vacancy rates, with recent data suggesting this normalisation has already begun. 

The rating is downgraded to Sell and the target price increases to $30.80 from $30.40. 

This report was published on July 18, 2021. 

Target price is $30.80 Current Price is $29.27 Difference: $1.53

ST1    SPIRIT TECHNOLOGY SOLUTIONS LIMITED

Telecommunication – Overnight Price: $0.31

Shaw and Partners rates ((ST1)) as Buy (1) –

The highlight of Spirit Technology Solutions' FY21 preliminary results and guidance for FY22 were underlying earnings of $11.5m in FY21, up 208% year-on-year and underwritten by material acquisitions.

Shaw and Partners notes this implies second-half FY21 earnings of $7.1m or 60% up on first-half FY21.

Driven by slower integration savings to Shaw’s previous expectations and volatility on costs driven by covid-related effects, the broker reduces earnings forecasts by -19% in FY22 onwards.

The broker is now forecasting an earnings margin of 12.9% in FY22 and sees potential upside to management forecasts as integration savings increase into second-half FY22 and lockdowns reduce.

The Buy rating remains and the target price is lowered to $0.46 from $0.60.

This report was published on July 21, 2021.

Over the quarter, Senex's net cash position fell to $26m from $36m and at quarter-end, the company had cash of $101m and $50m in undrawn debt.

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

While Senex Energy's production plateaued during the period, Canaccord Genuity believes the company looks very well-placed to deliver on further expansions in the Surat Basin and hence remains the broker's most preferred production name.

With the reservoir/well performance continuing to exceed the company's expectations, the broker is hopeful further debottlenecking activities will commence in first half FY22.

Canaccord Genuity has lowered FY21 earnings to $60m due to higher third-party purchases.

The broker notes final investment decision on an expansion at Atlas is expected in the first quarter of FY22, and that the Roma North expansion is expected to come online this quarter.

According to Jarden, the key risk to valuation is delays or execution failures with expansion projects. The Buy rating and target price of $4.15 are retained.

Gaming – Overnight Price: $4.95

In light of Tabcorp's recent intention to demerge the Lotteries & Keno business, JP Morgan notes the company is levered to declining segments of wagering such as retail and tote. Corporate bookmakers continue to win share online and across sports/racing.

The broker notes the current share price is reached just by using a lotteries standalone multiple. It's believed the focus will remain on extracting the value of lotteries going forward. JP Morgan retains its Neutral rating and $4.20 target price.

WSP    WHISPIR LIMITED

Cloud services – Overnight Price: $2.50

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

Revenue in the fourth quarter was in line with guidance. Australasia outperformed while the pandemic presented some challenges for new customers in Asia. Shaw and Partners considers the latter out of management's control and probably a timing issue.

The broker asserts incremental annual recurring revenue of $11.9m in FY21 has been produced on essentially the same headcount as in FY19 and does not believe the strong results are being reflected in current multiples.

Shaw and Partners maintains a Buy rating, raising the target to $5.30 from $5.20.

Wilsons found the fourth quarter results solid, given the disruption resulting from the pandemic. Around 80% of revenue is generated in Australasia and this will ultimately drive the FY21 result, suggests the broker.

WZR    WISR LIMITED

Business & Consumer Credit – Overnight Price: $0.30

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

Shaw and Partners assesses continuing momentum, after Wisr's fourth quarter update showed 27% growth versus the third quarter. New loan originations of $123m were 4% ahead of the broker's estimate. More than $100m per quarter is now being written.

The analyst notes the company is objectively ahead of its peers, not only by a substantial margin, but also consistently. This was the case even during covid, when it was the only neolender to grow its book, despite the downturn, explains the broker.

Shaw and Partners maintains its Buy rating and $0.55 target price.

This report was published on July 21, 2021.

Target price is $0.55 Current Price is $0.30 Difference: $0.25
If WZR meets the Shaw and Partners target it will return approximately 83% (excluding dividends, fees and charges).
