Australian Broker Call *Extra* Edition – Aug 12, 2021

Daily Market Reports | Aug 12 2021

This story features BWP TRUST, and other companies. For more info SHARE ANALYSIS: BWP

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.

REITs – Overnight Price: $4.02

Moelis rates ((BWP)) as Sell (5) –

BWP Trust has reported another relatively underwhelming result, according to Moelis, given it trades at a 22% premium to net tangible assets. Core net profit was $114m, with distributable profit of $117.5m supported by a $3.5m contribution from capital profits.

The broker explains earnings continue to be impacted where Bunnings vacates, and the Trust then sells or repositions assets. This is considered likely to remain a headwind for the short to medium term. The dividend was flat year-on-year at 18.29 cents. 

Like-for-like growth during the period was 1.6%, the lowest in the preceding 10 years, and was impacted by the low CPI of 0.5%, explains the analyst. Moelis retains its Sell rating and increases its target price to $3.42 from $3.34.

This report was published on August 5, 2021.

Target price is $3.42 Current Price is $4.02 Difference: minus $0.6 (current price is over target).

COF    CENTURIA OFFICE REIT

REITs – Overnight Price: $2.44

Moelis rates ((COF)) as Downgrade to Hold from Buy (3) –

Centuria Office REIT reported FY21 funds from operations (FFO) of 19.9 cents, up 7% year-on-year, benefiting from the one-off impact of a surrender payment. Moelis downgrades to Hold from Buy on the recent share price recovery.

Management expects FY22 FFO of 18 cents, normalising after the impact of the surrender payment. The analyst notes guidance excludes any contribution from the potential extension of the recently signed short-term lease at the group’s Robina asset.

Dividend guidance of 16.6 cents for FY22 implies to Moelis an increase of 0.6% year-on-year. The broker lifts its price target to $2.53 from $2.26 on evidence of improving demand from office tenants and the direct investment market alike.

This report was published on August 4, 2021.

If COF meets the Moelis target it will return approximately 4% (excluding dividends, fees and charges).

CTD    CORPORATE TRAVEL MANAGEMENT LIMITED

Travel, Leisure & Tourism – Overnight Price: $21.65

JP Morgan rates ((CTD)) as Downgrade to Neutral from Overweight (3) –

In a FY21 results preview of the Australian Travel sector, JP Morgan feels that given lock downs and the cessation of JobKeeper, investors will re-focus back on cash burn and liquidity metrics.

However, the broker believes the acceleration of vaccination rates due to lock downs has de-risked the medium-term Australian travel outlook, a net positive despite near-term downgrades.

Given no upside to the broker's $21 price target (increased from $20) for Corporate Travel Management, the rating is lowered Neutral from Overweight.

This report was published on August 9, 2021.

Target price is $21.00 Current Price is $21.65 Difference: minus $0.65 (current price is over target).

The broker notes Electro Optic Systems Holdings appears to be making progress across its pipeline, and that the company's share price is expected to be driven by pipeline conversion in the near term.

Impacted by the timing of payments, with collections from customers in early July, Fineos Corp's cash receipts of EUR22.7m decreased -11% year-on-year in the fourth quarter, while cash costs of EUR32.9m increased 43% over the previous period.

In addition to the acquisition of Spraoi, a leading provider of machine learning capability for the Employee Benefits and Life industry, Fineos also announced two new client wins. 

While slower deal flow has been frustrating over recent months, Shaw and Partners do not believe this discredits the broker's positive investment thesis over the longer term.

FLT    FLIGHT CENTRE TRAVEL GROUP LIMITED

Travel, Leisure & Tourism – Overnight Price: $14.97

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

In a FY21 results preview of the Australian Travel sector, JP Morgan feels that given lock downs and the cessation of JobKeeper, investors will re-focus back on cash burn and liquidity metrics.

However, the broker believes the acceleration of vaccination rates due to lock downs has de-risked the medium-term Australian travel outlook, a net positive despite near-term downgrades.

For Flight Centre Travel Group, the analyst looks to the result to see how cash burn may have changed after JobKeeper, lockdowns and South African unrest. The Underweight rating and $12.50 target are maintained.

This report was published on August 9, 2021.

FMG    FORTESCUE METALS GROUP LIMITED

Iron Ore – Overnight Price: $22.52

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

Fortescue Metals Group delivered a great scorecard for FY21 posting record production, up 2% on FY20 which was itself a record year up 6% on FY19.

The June quarter accounted for 28.2% of financial year sales compared to an average contribution of 28.3%.

While FY22 earnings should be trending higher on iron ore price, the broker believes it's but worth keeping an eye on
the dual headwinds: Price realisation at the lower end of current plateau (80-90%), and costs trend higher year-on-year by up to $250m.

However, Shaw and Partners notes FY22 cost headwind of $250m is a more attractive level than Rio Tinto's ((RIO)) revised cost guidance of $18-18.50 this calendar year.

Hold rating is unchanged: Target price $21.50.

This report was issued July 30, 2021.

Target price is $21.50 Current Price is $22.52 Difference: minus $1.02 (current price is over target).
If FMG meets the Shaw and Partners target it will return approximately minus 5% (excluding dividends, fees and charges – negative figures indicate an expected loss).

Gascoyne Resourses' June quarter production from Dalgaranga for the June quarter totaled 17,400 ounces at an all-in sustaining cost of $1,589 per ounce, with volume in line with Canaccord Genuity forecasts and a beat on costs. 

June quarter results bring FY21 production to 77,300 ounces at an all-in sustaining cost of $1,308 per ounce. With the company guiding to $46-51.2m in capital expenditure for FY22, Canaccord Genuity looks to FY23 for meaningful free cash flow increase following a year of investment.

GDI    GDI PROPERTY GROUP

REITs – Overnight Price: $1.14

Moelis rates ((GDI)) as Buy (1) –

GDI Property Group has sold 50 Cavill Avenue for $113.5m, and expects to net $109m after selling costs, reflecting an 8% premium to book value.

The analyst notes the group will use the proceeds to reduce debt to circa $60m on its principal facility, equating to gearing of around 9%. It's felt this will provide over $150m in financial flexibility to pursue assets and undertake capital management, including a buyback.

Should shares continue to trade at a circa -10% discount to net tangible assets, the group will likely become an attractive corporate target, points out the broker. Moelis retains its Buy rating and $1.43 target price.

This report was published on August 3, 2021.

Gold & Silver – Overnight Price: $0.31

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

Within  Geopacific Resoures June quarter activities report, the company announced a financial close on the Woodlark Gold Project and that project construction has commenced.

Woodlark is on track for its first gold pour in late 2022 which Shaw and Partners suspect is likely to be a major re-rating event for the stock.

Shaw has not made any changes to its operating model, but forecasts have reduced in 2022 & 2023 due to lower gold price assumptions.

JP Morgan rates ((HLO)) as Upgrade to Overweight from Neutral (1) –

In a FY21 results preview of the Australian Travel sector, JP Morgan feels that given lock downs and the cessation of JobKeeper, investors will re-focus back on cash burn and liquidity metrics.

However, the broker believes the acceleration of vaccination rates due to lock downs has de-risked the medium-term Australian travel outlook, a net positive despite near-term downgrades.

At its first half results, Helloworld Travel commented its retail network has shown high levels of resilience with member numbers down only -5%. Investors will likely be interested in how closures have changed with lockdowns and minus JobKeeper in the FY result, JP Morgan suggests.

The broker upgrades its rating to Overweight from Neutral and retains its $2.20 target price.

OVN    OVENTUS MEDICAL LIMITED

Medical Equipment & Devices – Overnight Price: $0.10

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

Canaccord Genuity explains the fourth quarter results for Oventus Medical reflected covid-induced disruption and the focus of management upon restructuring the business. The latter has resulted in a -30% reduction in staff during the quarter.

Revenue/receipts were up triple digits year-on-year though revenue was down around -29% quarter-on-quarter and receipts were flat. Tailwinds are thought to be emerging via the lower cost virtual model and the potential CPAP supply shortage from the Philips recall.

The analyst reduces FY21 revenue estimates following the result, adjusts the share count for the recent $10m raising and rolls over the financial model for a new financial year. This only partially offsets the significant dilution from the equity injection.

The target price falls to $0.29 from $0.34 and the Buy rating is unchanged.

Bulks – Overnight Price: $129.14
