Australian Broker Call *Extra* Edition – Nov 11, 2021

Daily Market Reports | Nov 11 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.

Software & Services – Overnight Price: $12.87

Bell Potter rates ((360)) as Buy (1) –

A 13% quarter-on-quarter increase in annualised monthly revenue was Bell Potter's highlight from Life360's strong third quarter results. Revenue was up 17% quarter-on-quarter and global paying circles up 10%, all a a beat on the broker's forecasts. 

Supply chain issues drove a marginal reduction in revenue and annualised monthly revenue for Jiobit, although expected underlying losses remain -US$3m.

Bell Potter upgrades revenue forecasts by 2%, 6% and 7% for 2021, 2022 and 2023, and reduces its underlying earnings loss for 2021 to in line with company guidance.

Evans and Partners rates ((360)) as Positive (1) –

Life360's September-quarter trading update pleased Evans & Partners, the company upgrading guidance yet again this quarter.

The company made strong inroads into the US market and churn metrics suggest the app is sticky, but international users and subscribers eased and recorded higher churn, which the broker says is not surprising given the market's relative infancy.

Life360 is on track to meet the broker's full-year forecasts, and the broker inches up earnings to reflect reduced losses, better-than-expected conversion rates and lower costs.

A2M    A2 MILK COMPANY LIMITED

Dairy – Overnight Price: $6.16

Bell Potter rates ((A2M)) as Buy (1) –

While Bell Potter notes A2 Milk Company has retained its FY22 outlook, the company is targeting medium term revenue of NZ$2.0bn with earning margins in the teens, driven by recovery in English and China label formula sales and China product expansion.

It is Bell Potter's view that Altium will remain a takeover target for Autodesk in order to enable its Fusion 360 platform to become a preferred platform for converged processes, and expects Autodesk will make a revised bid at some point. 

Increased revenue expectations for Octopart have also driven earnings per share forecast upgrades of 5%, 2% and 1% through to FY24.

AQZ    ALLIANCE AVIATION SERVICES LIMITED

Transportation & Logistics – Overnight Price: $3.97

Wilsons rates ((AQZ)) as Upgrade to Overweight from Market Weight (1) –

Wilsons lifts its rating for Alliance Aviation Services to Overweight from Market-weight and increases its target price to $4.50 from $4.38, following a material recent underperformance for the share price. The analyst feels investor concerns that have weighed are transitory.

These include concerns over Qantas’ fleet renewal plans, which the analyst allays by noting Alliance's E190 wet lease arrangement offers a low-cost solution for the larger airline.

There were also delays in deployment of E190s with Qantas, likely impacting earnings (EBITDA) per aircraft in the second half of FY21, explains the broker. This is expected to reverse.

This report was published on October 29, 2021.

Target price is $4.50 Current Price is $3.97 Difference: $0.53
If AQZ meets the Wilsons target it will return approximately 13% (excluding dividends, fees and charges).

ARX    AROA BIOSURGERY LIMITED

Pharmaceuticals & Biotech/Lifesciences – Overnight Price: $1.12

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

Aroa Biosurgery upgraded its FY22 revenue guidance range by 12%, a 16% beat over Wilsons forecast at the midpoint. Both OviTex (hernia) and MYRIAD (reconstructive surgery) are enjoying clinical performance and market access advantages, highlights the analyst.

First half sales were 25% ahead of the broker's forecast, partly due to volume and mix in the OviTex/PRS portfolio with larger, higher- average-selling price-devices gaining traction. Execution on the MYRIAD launch is also thought to have contributed.

The Overweight rating is retained and the target price rises to $1.75 from $1.60.

This report was published on October 28, 2021.

Target price is $1.75 Current Price is $1.12 Difference: $0.63

BEX    BIKEEXCHANGE LIMITED

Sports & Recreation – Overnight Price: $0.17

CCZ Equities rates ((BEX)) as No Rating (-1) –

CCZ both initiates coverage on BikeExchange and also covers a 1Q trading update by the company. The provider of a bicycle-focuses online marketplace connects bicycle retailers with consumers globally.

In FY21, retailers on the platform grew by 10.3% to 1,600, and consumers on the platform grew by 23.7% to 28.2m traffic sessions. The analyst points out that if conversions rise to the industry average rate of 1.75% (then 0.12%), $25.7m in commissions would be generated.

The trading update showed an improvement in this web traffic metric to 0.17% from 0.12%. The broker feels the company is undervalued at the current price, when measured against similar listed stocks.

CCZ Equities sets neither a rating nor a target price.

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

Despite first quarter revenue growth of 31% year-on-year being a miss on Shaw and Partners' forecast, the broker highlights the quarter is a seasonally soft one for Bikeexchange and remains confident investment will drive revenue acceleration in the second half of FY22.

The company is also targeting a full-year beat on consensus revenue of $7.5m, which the broker notes implies achieving $2.1m in revenue over each of the next three quarters. A potential strategic acquisition announcement in the second quarter could drive further growth.

The Buy rating and target price of $0.33 are retained. 

This report was published on October 29, 2021.

BRI    BIG RIVER INDUSTRIES LIMITED

Building Products & Services – Overnight Price: $2.19

Moelis rates ((BRI)) as Buy (1) –

Following a strong first quarter for Big River Industries, Moelis notes the company had guided to both revenue and underlying earnings growth of 19-24% for FY22 and while revenue is tracking at the top end of range underlying earnings are expected to exceed. 

The broker updates its underlying earnings forecast by 8% for FY22, implying expected year-on-year growth of 34%, while earnings per share for the year are lifted 11%. 

The Buy rating is retained and the target price decreases to $2.41 from $2.51.

This report was published on October 28, 2021.

CDA    CODAN LIMITED

Hardware & Equipment – Overnight Price: $10.36

Moelis rates ((CDA)) as Buy (1) –

Despite Codan reaffirming organic business continues to be in line with last year's first half profitability, Moelis' view is that the company can achieve modest growth in FY22 without the stimulus tailwinds that benefited last year's results. 

Codan's Domo Tactical Communications (DTC) has announced a large multi-year military program contract, expected to provide around $11m gross profit in FY22, which the broker notes adds upside to current underlying earnings guidance. 

Adjusting for higher depreciation and amortisation costs, Moelis reduces FY22 profit after tax -3%. 

The Buy rating is retained and the target price decreases to $15.92 from $17.12.

This report was published on October 27, 2021.

Target price is $15.92 Current Price is $10.36 Difference: $5.56

CGS    COGSTATE LIMITED

Medical Equipment & Devices – Overnight Price: $2.24

CCZ Equities rates ((CGS)) as No Rating (-1) –

During Cogstate's 1Q trading update, management reaffirmed FY22 guidance. CCZ Equities leaves its forecasts unchanged while praising sales momentum. Net clinical trial contracts grew 391% versus the previous corresponding period, aided by a large phase 3 study.

The analyst sees significant upside risk from new large-scale clinical trial signings and the acceleration of healthcare revenues. It's noted the company has a current estimated market share of around 16% and can grow significantly.

This report was published on October 28, 2021.

COE    COOPER ENERGY LIMITED

Crude Oil – Overnight Price: $0.27

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

Cooper Energy reported record quarterly production, sales and sales revenue in its first quarter, with Bell Potter noting stability at the Sole project and strong recovery in the Otway's drove production improvement. 

Second quarter production will be disrupted by Otway gas processing moving from third party infrastructure to the company's Athena gas plant in November, but the broker notes the upgrade should provide material production and cost benefit on an ongoing basis. 

The Buy rating and target price of $0.38 are retained.

This report was published on October 28, 2021.

Target price is $0.38 Current Price is $0.27 Difference: $0.11

COL    COLES GROUP LIMITED

Food, Beverages & Tobacco – Overnight Price: $17.63

Jarden rates ((COL)) as Upgrade to Overweight from Neutral (2) –

Goldman Sachs upgrades its rating for Coles Group to Overweight from Neutral and raises its target to $18.10 from $17.60 following 1Q results. The analyst feels sales trends are improving and the valuation gap with Woolworths Group ((WOW)) may be narrowing.

Moreover, the inflationary outlook has improved and the group is well placed to benefit as around 90% of earnings are from its Supermarket business. The lower margin profile compared to Woolworths is thought to imply greater operating leverage.

The results showed a benefit from easing supply chain constraints, a stronger performance in tobacco and improving share trends, highlights the analyst.

CPU    COMPUTERSHARE LIMITED

Diversified Financials – Overnight Price: $19.20

Evans and Partners rates ((CPU)) as Positive (1) –

Evans & Partners expects Computershare's acquisition of Wells Fargo's Corporate Trust Services will yield sharply higher interest-rate leverage given balance exposures.

The broker estimates a 1% increase in the average earned rate on the company's exposed balance would cause FY23 earnings to rise to roughly $286m from $136m.

FY23 and FY24 EPS estimates rise 1.3% and 9.7%.
