Australian Broker Call *Extra* Edition – Aug 04, 2021

Daily Market Reports | Aug 04 2021

This story features LIFE360, INC, and other companies. For more info SHARE ANALYSIS: 360

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 ((360)) as Buy (1) –

After a better-than-expected second quarter, Bell Potter highlights US and international monthly active users (MAU) both increased by 2.1m versus the first quarter. Also, annualised monthly revenue (AMR) in June was up 36% year-on-year.

Global paying circles increased 10% quarter-on-quarter to 1m, and average revenue per paying circle increased 5%. Meanwhile, revenue in the second quarter was up 28% year-on-year to US$25m, and the underlying earnings (EBITDA) loss was -US$3.3m.

Management said “if the variant surge in the US is contained at current levels, we expect AMR by December 2021 to exceed our previous guidance of US$110 to US$120 million for Life360’s core business.”

Bell Potter upgrades its revenue forecasts by around 2% across 2021-2023. However, forecast underlying losses are increased, due to the flagged potential increase in investment, as well as higher than expected losses from Jiobit.

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

AI-Media Technologies has released its fourth-quarter FY21 cashflow statement, delivering $5.0m in positive operating cashflow, a $6.6m improvement on the previous quarter.

Bell Potter believes improving operating cashflow bodes well for future operating margins going into FY22, and has upgraded revenue forecasts across the period by 1%, resulting in negligible changes to earnings.

The broker expects an update to the company’s segment reporting at the upcoming FY21 result to shed further light on the drivers of margin expansion and how this shapes operating margins going forward.

Bell Potter retains its Buy rating, and the target price increases to $1.50 from $1.40.

ALC    ALCIDION GROUP LIMITED

Healthcare services – Overnight Price: $0.37

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

Alcidion Group reported an FY21 positive operating cash flow of $1.1m, ahead of Bell Potter forecasts.

Cash as of June 30 was $25.0m which the broker notes is sufficient to fund ongoing operations and/or a small acquisition to improve the tech capacity and reach of market access.

Bell Potter believes the most relevant near-term catalysts are new contract additions in the UK which can drive ongoing upward pressure on the stock.

The Buy rating and target price of $0.45 are both unchanged.

This report was published on July 28, 2021.

Target price is $0.45 Current Price is $0.37 Difference: $0.08

ALU    ALTIUM

Hardware & Equipment – Overnight Price: $34.49

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

Autodesk has announced it has terminated discussions to acquire Altium. It is Bell Potter's view that Altium believes the value of the company is much greater than the offer implied if it is able to achieve the goal of developing a widely-adopted, cloud-based collaboration platform. 

Further, Bell Potter notes that Autodesk's approach may indicate major vendors in the design software market would prefer to own the platform rather than be a strategic partner for it. 

With the Autodesk acquisitions off the table, the broker has reduced the premium applied to Altium. The Hold rating is retained and the target price decreases to $35.00. 

This report was published on July 23, 2021.

Target price is $35.00 Current Price is $34.49 Difference: $0.51

APE    EAGERS AUTOMOTIVE LIMITED

Automobiles & Components – Overnight Price: $16.21

Moelis rates ((APE)) as Buy (1) –

Moelis raises FY21-23 EPS forecasts by 3-5% to capture higher margins from finance and insurance (F&I) in FY22 and beyond. This comes after a strong first half underlying profit (PBT) result, broadly in-line with the analyst’s forecast. Hence, the broker increases its target price to $18.73 from $17.82.

Management attributed the result to material cost savings extracted during 2020, ongoing synergies from the AHG merger and demand continuing to ‘materially outstrip’ supply.

The broker feels the company remains attractive, due to a strong forward order book to support profitability in the short term. In addition, there are other initiatives including F&I, EA123 (used cars) and property rationalisation to drive profit from 2022 and beyond.

Moelis retains its Buy rating.

This report was published on July 29, 2021.

Target price is $18.73 Current Price is $16.21 Difference: $2.52
If APE meets the Moelis target it will return approximately 16% (excluding dividends, fees and charges).
Current consensus price target is $17.63, suggesting upside of 8.7%(ex-dividends)

At the last closing share price the estimated dividend yield is 4.40%.

BCI    BCI MINERALS LIMITED

Iron Ore – Overnight Price: $0.54

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

BCI Minerals' Iron Valley mine had another record quarter, with underlying earnings of $32m a 59% increase on the prior quarter. The strong results have lead Iron Valley to full-year underlying earnings of $70m, a 200% increase on FY20 results. 

Bell Potter notes strong iron ore prices offset marginally weaker sales volumes to drive solid results. Elsewhere, BCI Minerals is awaiting final environmental approvals for the Mardie Salt and SOP project. The broker notes additional equity required to fund the project may be less than expected if iron ore prices stay high. 

Bell Potter has made revisions to earnings per share forecasts through to FY23 due to iron ore price assumptions. FY22 increases 15% and FY23 increases 54%. 

The Buy rating is retained and the target price increases to $0.74 from $0.69. 

This report was published on July 26, 2021.

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

The combination of ongoing strength in iron ore prices and a record $32.2m in operating earnings from the Iron Valley project have driven a solid June quarter result for BCI Minerals. 

Canaccord Genuity notes that momentum at the Mardie Salt project remains positive, with the Environmental Protection Agency recommending to the WA Minister for the Environment that the project can be implemented as proposed, subject to certain conditions already consistant with the design plans. 

The broker expects BCI Minerals to receive Ministerial approval in the September quarter, and notes that high earnings from Iron Valley are continuing to shrink the funding required for Mardie. 

The Speculative Buy rating and target price of $0.70 are retained. 

This report was published on July 26, 2021.

Target price is $0.70 Current Price is $0.54 Difference: $0.16

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

According to Canaccord Genuity, FY22 could be a catalyst rich year for Betmakers Technology Group, who enter the new financial year with substantial cash balance, an industry partner incentivised to introduce new deals into the business, and potential to build Northern hemisphere operations. 

The broker highlights cash receipts of $8.9m in the quarter, up 71% on the March quarter, were particularly impressive given Sportech settled two weeks from the end of the period.

Post quarter-end, Boab announced the acquisition of the Manbarrum zinc-lead-silver project from Todd River Resources ((TRT)).

Boab finished the quarter with a net cash position of $12.95m, which the broker notes leaves the company well funded to complete the current exploration and definitive feasibility study work.

CBR    CARBON REVOLUTION LIMITED

Automobiles & Components – Overnight Price: $1.03

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

While Carbon Revolution's fourth quarter update has wheel sales up 2.7% quarter-on-quarter, the total was still a -6.7% miss year-on-year. Bell Potter has decreased wheel sales forecasts, resulting in material decreases to revenue and underlying earnings per share expectations through to FY23. 

The company's mega-line is expected to be complete in 18 months, with Phase 1 of the project expected to provide around 75,000 wheels per annum of additional production capacity.

Despite management continuing to execute strongly on its growth strategy, the broker believes Cluey's journey as a scalable platform company from both a scale and offering perspective remains in its infancy.

Bell Potter has not included any upside from the company’s expansion into the NZ market in the broker's forecasts and awaits further evidence of traction.

Coronado Global Resources' first half 2021 group revenue was US$800m and Bell Potter noted earnings of US$21m, with mining costs higher than expected.

At 30 June 2021, net debt was US$236m, down from US$290m after the $101m equity raise.

Bell Potter expects Coronado's second-half 2021 earnings and cash flow to materially improve, and notes since early May 2021, benchmark hard coking coal prices have increased from US$110/t to now around US$210/t.

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

Despite Coronado Global Resources' second quarter run of mine coal production increasing 10% quarter-on-quarter, saleable coal production was down -9% quarter-on-quarter.

Goldman Sachs notes the decrease was driven by maintenance at both the Curragh and Buchanan mines.

According to Goldman Sachs, coal inventory will be sold throughout the second half at higher prices as three-month pricing lags are realised. 

The company continues to guide to production of 18-19m tonnes of saleable coal, which the broker notes implies a step up in production in the second half. 

The Buy rating and target price of $1.20 are retained.

Cashrewards’ fourth quarter update was broadly in-line with the estimates of Moelis. The broker leaves its estimates largely unchanged and retains its Buy rating and $2.65 target price.

The launch of the ANZ Bank ((ANZ)) strategic partnership in August will set the runway for significant member growth, anticipates the broker. There’s considered scope for material upgrades to estimates should the ANZ Bank take-up rate be higher than expected.

DOC    DOCTOR CARE ANYWHERE GROUP PLC

Healthcare services – Overnight Price: $0.81

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

Second quarter underlying revenues increased 9% over the prior quarter though the volume of GP consultations declined by around -1%. This was considered most likely due to capacity constraints in available GP hours.

Revenues were supplemented by a large increase in referral volumes for diagnostic services and, as a result, reported revenues were in-line with the analyst's forecast.

The broker's Buy rating is retained and its target price lowered to $1.50 from $1.70, reflecting a re-rating of the sector over recent quarters. FY21 revenue guidance was maintained, and closing cash is estimated to be at least 2.5 years of operating cash.

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

Deterra Royalties has benefited from the ramp-up of BHP Group's ((BHP)) South Flank mine, with iron ore production up 22% quarter-on-quarter. 

Goldman Sachs notes the ramp-up to 80m tonnes per annum in the next three years, combined with capacity payments and higher iron ore prices, are driving a more than doubling of Deterra Royalties' year-on-year underlying earnings to an expected $312m in FY22.

DTC    DAMSTRA HOLDINGS LIMITED

Software & Services – Overnight Price: $1.08

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

Damstra Holdings reported fourth-quarter FY21 revenues of $9.1m in line with Shaw and guidance, with operating earnings margin 30% ahead of Shaw expectations and estimates in FY22 (by 500bps).

Shaw estimates revenues of $40m in FY22 and $35m in exit annual recurring revenue (ARR) and notes if the current growth trajectory continues, the company could exit FY22 with $43m-plus in ARR.

The broker believes Damstra remains exceptionally cheap and with ARR ramping and margins improving, suspects there is significant re-rating potential.

Wilsons rates ((DTC)) as Overweight (1) –

With FY21 largely now known, Wilsons lifts the focus to FY22 where the broker expects Damstra Holdings' operating leverage to become highly visible and is forecasting 32% operating revenue growth, and 49% earnings growth.

While the pandemic has impacted workers on-site in Damstra’s core mining and construction segments, Wilsons notes this is normalising and sees the company as a real-world, recovery play.

FY21 revenue of $28.2m was just shy of guidance and -6% below Wilsons' forecast.

The Overweight rating is retained and the target price decreases to $1.52 from $1.66.

ECF    ELANOR COMMERCIAL PROPERTY FUND

REITs – Overnight Price: $1.11

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

Elanor Commercial Property Fund's recently provided fourth quarter metrics. FY21 funds from operations (FFO) and distribution forecasts are in line with Shaw and Partner's expectations, with FFO expected to be slightly ahead of prior guidance at 12.52 cents per security.

Overall, the broker believes Elanor's positive update reflects the continued relative strong performance of the assets within the fund.

While Elanor looks to combine a very attractive yield and above-average potential for material capital growth over time from the active management of the company's portfolio, the broker notes lease renewals are a key risk beyond macro factors.

Buy rating and target price of $1.35 are both retained.

This report was published on July 28, 2021.

EML    EML PAYMENTS LIMITED

Business & Consumer Credit – Overnight Price: $3.84

Wilsons rates ((EML)) as Overweight (1) –

While considerable uncertainty remains, Wilsons continues to believe that EML Payments will receive a modest (not punitive) fine from the Central Bank of Ireland (CBI); the company will need to improve its systems and processes but any brand damage should be localised and modest.

In light of this expected outcome, Wilsons advises either adding to or creating an EML position in advance of the announcement regarding the CBI’s investigation, capturing the expected positive share price response to the CBI announcement.

The Overweight rating is retained and the target price increases 10% to $4.14 from $3.78.

This report was released on July 27, 2021.

Target price is $4.14 Current Price is $3.84 Difference: $0.3

EVN    EVOLUTION MINING LIMITED

Gold & Silver – Overnight Price: $4.13

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

Evolution Mining's June quarter production of 169,000 ounces was an -11% miss on Goldman Sachs estimates, while all-in sustaining costs of $1,239 were up 12% on expectations, leading to a miss on FY21 production guidance. 

According to the broker, the three-year outlook provided by Evolution Mining is also disappointing compared to prior forecasts, with softer-than-expected production in the near term and around an additional -$500m in growth capital expenditure. 

Goldman Sachs notes the acquisition of Kundana for -$400m, which is expected to close in August, has not been included in estimates or investment views. Evolution Mining is guiding for the acquisition to increase production by 4%, 8% and 7% through to FY24. 

The rating is downgraded to Sell and the target price decreases to $3.90 and $4.50.

Jarden expects headwinds for a full recovery to persist in FY22 across IDP Education's network, with border restrictions still applying for A&NZ and supply constraints for the main Northern Hemisphere destinations.

With positive regulatory and visa policy settings in place for both UK and Canada, the broker believes Northern Hemisphere student placements will be key for investors in FY22, with a pathway for a recovery in Australia as opposed to a full rebound.

Jarden believes the expected sell down of -15% of equity by Education Australia (EA) remains an overhang for IDP Education and the broker has adjusted earnings estimates -21%, -12%, and 2% for FY21, FY22, and FY23, respectively.

Jarden retains an Overweight rating and the price target increases to $31.36 from $28.54.

Mineral Sands – Overnight Price: $9.66

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

Iluka Resources has reported its strongest quarterly revenue in over five years, but given the company's low finished zircon stockpiles, Goldman Sachs expects zircon sales to decrease in the second half and lead to further tightening in the market. 

The company has advised customers of a minimum zircon price increase of US$125 per tonne, or 8%, from July 1. Goldman Sachs highlights this is an almost 10-year high, with the broker's view being the zircon market is at the beginning of a three-year structural supply driven deficit. 

Goldman Sachs further expects Iluka Resources' zircon and titanium dioxide sales to recover 25% in 2021 given improving global demand.

JHC    JAPARA HEALTHCARE LIMITED

Aged Care & Seniors – Overnight Price: $1.38

Jarden rates ((JHC)) as Downgrade to Neutral from Buy (3) –

Japara Healthcare has entered into a Scheme Implementation Deed (SID) with Little Company of Mary Health Care Ltd for the acquisition of all of the issued shares in Japara by way of scheme of arrangement.

The headline multiple equates to $124,000 per bed on an enterprise value basis, which Jarden notes is relatively in line with some recent transactions in the industry.

While there could be additional opportunities for another suitor to find value in Japara, Jarden believes this risk has been reduced given a due diligence period has just been completed with multiple parties.

Jarden notes a key factor highlighted from two not-for-profit operators as suitors for Japara is the benefit that they don't incur payroll tax. In the case of Japara, this provides an estimated $18m expense benefit which on the broker's estimates for FY21 would double earnings from Japara.

Jarden has downgraded Japara to a Neutral rating from Buy, and the target price increases to $1.40 from $1.35.

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

Shaw and Partners comments Newcrest Mining delivered a good June quarter scorecard with FY21 gold production just ahead of FY21 mid-point guidance.

While Cadia exceeded the top end of its guidance range, gold production at Telfer was 19% higher than the prior period due to
higher throughput and recovery, partially offset by lower head grade and a reduction in dump leach ounces.

Following a "good" production quarter to end FY21, Shaw and Partners expects the focus to turn to the news/project study heavy first-half FY22, and notes like its peers, Newcrest is lagging the recent uptick in AUD gold price.

NIC    NICKEL MINES LIMITED

Nickel – Overnight Price: $1.11

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

After Nickel Mines' second quarter report, Bell Potter cuts its 2021 earnings forecast by -7%, largely due to a -2% lower production estimate and 8% higher cost forecast.

Forecast earnings for 2022 are up 6% on 10% higher NPI production, as Angel Nickel commences early.

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

With Northern Star Resources' FY21 scorecards meeting the guidance range, Shaw Partners notes a good quarter to end a good production year follows several years of transformation – including the super pit acquisition and the merger with Saracen.

IT & Support – Overnight Price: $3.42

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

Bell Potter assesses a strong second quarter, with the key metric of annual recurring revenue (ARR) up 56% year-on-year. Guidance was kept at US$39-42m ARR at the end of December though 2021 revenue guidance increased to US$47-50m from US$45-49m.

The broker highlights better revenue and earnings (EBITDA) expectations were due to “higher return on investment from some of the company’s first half 2021 initiatives”. This is considered due to higher-than-expected online perpetual sales.

Shaw and Partners assesses Nitro Software delivered a strong second quarter, with annual recurring revenue (ARR) growth tracking ahead of guidance. Management has lifted revenue and operating earnings (EBITDA) guidance by 2% and 16%.

The broker points out the current investment in sales and marketing, and broadening-out of the product portfolio. It's considered this will drive even stronger growth in FY22. Hence, the broker's revenue forecasts for FY22 and FY23 are lifted  by 2%.

Nuchev confirmed a mixed fourth quarter FY21 result, with sales of $2.0m down -59% on the previous period and -41% quarter-on-quarter.

Wilsons assumes sales growth of 35% p.a. over the forecast period, primarily driven by the CBEC channel, and complemented by product innovation and entry into new markets.

The broker lowers sales forecasts by -14-35%, driven by the lower FY21 base and lower growth trajectory in the outer years, while gross margin assumptions are broadly unchanged.

Wilsons downgrades Nuchev to Market weight from Overweight with a target of $0.57.

This report was published on July 27, 2021.

NXS    NEXT SCIENCE LIMITED

Pharmaceuticals & Biotech/Lifesciences – Overnight Price: $1.52

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

Next Science's first-half FY21 result beat Bell Potter's expectations, in terms of earnings and initial XPerience commercial progress, with revenues for the half at $3.9m.

The broker believes the progress at XPerience is very positive, and suspects the initial order sizes vary from smaller orders of US$600 to much larger ones of $30-45,000 per hospital.

While cautiously optimistic based on the result, Bell Potter awaits further detail on the legal proceedings between Zimmer and Next Science for Xperience before making any changes to forecasts.

Bell Potter retains its Hold rating and $1.70 price target.

NXT    NEXTDC LIMITED

Cloud services – Overnight Price: $13.21

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

Goldman Sachs reiterates its Buy rating and $14.80 target price, after NextDC secured a site for -$124m to build a 300MW hyperscale-only data centre in Horsley Park in Western Sydney.

Given the timing of land payments, and expected use of a joint venture, the broker thinks it unlikely additional capital will be required to fund the S4 investment.

The analyst sees the transaction as a relatively low-risk way to accelerate the growth profile over the next decade and deliver incremental growth in a new availability zone.

This report was published on July 28, 2021.

Target price is $14.80 Current Price is $13.21 Difference: $1.59

Goldman Sachs rates ((OGC)) as Downgrade to Neutral from Buy (3) –

Goldman Sachs revises forecasts through to 2023 following the recent renewal of the financial or technical assistance agreement at the Didipio mine. The agreement is the first step to resuming production, with a restart of operations expected in coming weeks. 

Strong recovery at the Haile gold mine in the second quarter drove group production 8% higher than consensus, but all-in sustaining costs were also 8% higher than expected, comments the broker.

Goldman Sachs decreases underlying earnings forecasts through to 2023 by -5%, -30% and -22%, capturing the restart of Didipio.

OPY    OPENPAY GROUP LIMITED

Business & Consumer Credit – Overnight Price: $1.28

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

After fourth quarter results, Shaw and Partners assesses a little weaker-than-expected financial year revenue. The broker retains its Buy rating and lowers its target price to $3.50 from $4.00.

The broker estimates overall firepower of $214m, as FY21 ended with cash on hand of $52m, and there's undrawn funding lines of $162m. It's estimated this provides ample headroom, given a FY21 cash loss of -$66.4m, versus the analyst's expected -$55.8m.

Shaw and Partners explains the bulk of losses stemmed from staffing costs of -$31m, as the business ramps up in the UK and enters the US.

This report was issued July 29, 2021.

OSL    ONCOSIL MEDICAL LIMITED

Pharmaceuticals & Biotech/Lifesciences – Overnight Price: $0.05

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

Bell Potter reports the pending resignations of Chairman Chris Roberts and non-executive director Mike Basset have capped off a challenging period for Oncosil Medical. 

The broker notes the global pandemic has prevented the roll out of Oncosil's pancreatic cancer therapy, but the company has continued to build out the market in anticipation of a re-opening. It is the broker's view that, except in Australia, the company is in a better position to launch than it was 12 months ago. 

Pending further detail on product roll out timing in the UK and Germany, the rating is downgraded to Speculative Hold and the target price decreases to $0.07 from $0.42.

OZL    OZ MINERALS LIMITED

Copper – Overnight Price: $22.69

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

OZ Minerals reported a strong second quarter, with copper and gold production increasing 22% and 5% respectively and full-year gold production guidance lifted by 15koz to 205-228koz.

Goldman Sachs expects a likely $3bn capital spend over the next decade at West Musgrave, Prominent Hill underground expansion and Carrapateena block cave to result in low free cash flow – 3-4% yield – over the next 3 years.

The broker notes earnings growth is compelling, with OZ Minerals delivering production and earnings growth in 2021 and 2022. On a copper equivalent grade basis, Goldman Sachs expects production to remain at 175-180ktpa for 2021 and 2022, and the broker forecasts earnings to double in 2021, and then increase a further 15% in 2022.

The Neutral rating is retained with a target price increasing to $25.30 from $23.70. 

This report was published on July 27, 2021.

Target price is $25.30 Current Price is $22.69 Difference: $2.61

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

OZ Minerals delivered a much stronger June quarter, up 22% on the softer March quarter start of the year.

Midway through 2021 OZ Minerals is tracking at the low end of FY copper guidance (120-145kt) but Shaw and Partners notes the June quarter run rate places the company to approach the mid-point of FY guidance.

While there is no change to copper production guidance, the company has lifted gold guidance by 8% to 205-28koz and lowered cash costs by -7% to US60-70c/lb.

While the company's track record over the past 6 years in terms of guidance delivery has been best in class, the broker notes trading at price to the net asset value of 1.5x doesn’t leave any room for error/guidance downgrades – even if due to exogenous factors such as by-product pricing.

The Buy rating and target price of $25.00 are both retained.

This report was published on July 28, 2021.

Target price is $25.00 Current Price is $22.69 Difference: $2.31

PDN    PALADIN ENERGY LIMITED

Uranium – Overnight Price: $0.51

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

With Paladin Energy preparing for a restart of the Langer Heinrich uranium mine in Namibia when uranium market conditions
allow, Shaw and Partners views the company as the stand-out in the uranium sector on a risk-reward basis.

During the June quarter, Paladin completed a 1 for 8.5 pro-rata entitlement offer and institutional placement at $0.37ps to raise $218.7m.

In the broker's view, this provides enhanced financial flexibility and is a sufficient cash reserve to fund the company through to a Langer Heinrich mine restart.

Paladin thinks a contract price above US$50/lb over the coming period appears realistic.

Jarden initiates coverage on REA Group with an Overweight rating and $180 target price.

The broker favours REA Group over Domain Holdings ((DHG)) due to greater pricing power and high growth offshore opportunities to sustain its 10-15% earnings growth beyond the next three years.

RIO    RIO TINTO LIMITED

Bulks – Overnight Price: $132.39

Shaw and Partners rates ((RIO)) as Hold (3) –

Shaw and Partners assesses Rio Tinto's first half delivered a handy commodity-price-fueled beat for profit and dividends. This is considered to give flexibility to hand -US$9bn back to shareholders, be net cash positive and portfolio pivot on a key project (Jadar lithium). 

Profit was around 1.5% ahead of consensus though the analyst considers the focus will likely quickly shift to the 1H21 dividend, which
was a circa 9% beat.

The broker highlights earnings (EBITDA) contributions were in-line with expectations. Iron ore was estimated to account for circa 76% of earnings. Larger contributions than recent years came from copper, aluminium and Minerals, around 10%, 9% and 7%, respectively.

Shaw and Partners retains its Hold rating and $132 price target.

Industrial Sector Contractors & Engineers – Overnight Price: $0.92

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

Service Stream has announced the acquisition of Lendlease Services for an enterprise value of $310m and an expected equity price of $295m.

While lockdowns add potential further revenue and integration risk, the broker is supportive of the acquisition on strategic grounds and is backing the company to deliver on synergies.

Mineral Sands – Overnight Price: $0.22

Jarden rates ((TPW)) as Buy (2) –

While a sluggish period may still materialise, Jarden sees signs in the recent update from Temple & Webster that the structural and cyclical factors underpinning the group's success are likely enduring, with the company's execution also reinforcing its advantage as a category leader.

While the group's fourth-quarter FY21 revenue growth was in line with estimates (at 26%), Jarden notes accelerating sales through the quarter.

The net effect results in Jarden's FY22 and FY23 earnings estimates rising by 6% and 27%, respectively, with the margin at 3.0-3.7%, respectively, in the upper half of the company's target range.

As part of emerging new trends overseas, The Australian Broker Call *Extra* Edition also includes providers of sponsored research. Readers should bear in mind, sponsored research, while not necessarily of lower quality, has the embedded complication that the company that is the subject of the research has paid for this research. Providers of sponsored research that can potentially be included in this Report are Breakaway Research, Edison Investment Research, Independent Investment Research, NDF Research, Pitt Street Research, and TMT Analytics.

Decisions about inclusions in this Report are made independently of the providers of stock market research and at full discretion of the team of journalists responsible for content at FNArena. Inclusion does not equal endorsement, in any way, shape or form. This Report is provided for informational purposes only.
