Australian Broker Call *Extra* Edition – Dec 13, 2021

Daily Market Reports | Dec 13 2021

This story features A2 MILK COMPANY LIMITED, and other companies. For more info SHARE ANALYSIS: A2M

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.

A2M    A2 MILK COMPANY LIMITED

Dairy – Overnight Price: $5.64

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

While making no change to its $7.70 target price for the a2 Milk Co, Bell Potter sees scope for EPS to double by FY26.

The analyst believes this is possible provided the China offline expansion strategy is executed and 50% of the lost sales of English label infant milk formula (from FY20-21) can be recovered.

An additional lift would come from exiting the loss-making US assets or performing a turnaround at the Mataura Valley Milk, points out the broker. The Buy rating is unchanged.

This report was published on December 8, 2021.

Target price is $7.70 Current Price is $5.64 Difference: $2.06

The broker also expects inflation commentary to be impacting investor sentiment. Despite commodity inflation impacting industry food cost margins and labour inflation impacting labour costs, the broker maintains a positive outlook.

CAR    CARSALES.COM LIMITED

Automobiles & Components – Overnight Price: $26.22

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

Goldman Sachs believes domestic targets set at Carsales.com's investor day were below consensus expectations though the broker gives credit for management's greater disclosure around the international operations.

The company’s estimate of only 15% volume share and 15-25% fees for the Select (digital used car service) opportunity disappointed the analyst. While management reiterated its FY22 guidance, no long term targets were disclosed.

Management was positive on Trader Interactive (within the international operations) noting dealer wallet data shows upside in a shift to a leads-based model. 

Goldman Sachs increases its target price to $26.70 from $26.40 and maintains its Neutral rating.

COE    COOPER ENERGY LIMITED

Crude Oil – Overnight Price: $0.28

Jarden rates ((COE)) as Neutral (3) –

Cooper Energy has downgraded production guidance to 3.0-3.4mmboe from 3.0-3.6mmboe on higher gas purchase costs and delayed Phase 2B works. The latter means there will be fewer months of possible higher output in FY22, explains Jarden.

FY22 earnings guidance was reduced by -$7m, due to higher third party gas purchase costs. The target price falls to $0.29 from $0.30. The Neutral rating is maintained.

In contemplating the acquisition of the Orbost gas processing plant (recently mooted by management), Jarden notes it would significantly improve gas margins though funding could be a challenge.

This report was published on December 8, 2021.

Target price is $0.29 Current Price is $0.28 Difference: $0.01
If COE meets the Jarden target it will return approximately 4% (excluding dividends, fees and charges).

DSE    DROPSUITE LIMITED

Cloud services – Overnight Price: $0.21

Canaccord Genuity rates ((DSE)) as Initiation of coverage with Buy (1) –

Canaccord Genuity initiates coverage on global cloud software platform Dropsuite. The company supports 575,000 active users, generating annual recurring revenue of $13.1m which has increased 79% in the last year. 

With small and medium entities increasingly outsourcing IT services, data suggests the cloud backup and recovery software industry is estimated to be worth US$22bn by 2025, from US$6bn in 2017. 

In Canaccord's view Dropsuite is a profitable, high-growth, recurring revenue model business operating in a large and increasing addressable market.

The broker initiates with a Buy rating and a target price of $0.30.

This report was published on December 8, 2021.

FLT    FLIGHT CENTRE TRAVEL GROUP LIMITED

Travel, Leisure & Tourism – Overnight Price: $17.78

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

Flight Centre has a significant business in South Africa (where the omicron outbreak originated) and Goldman Sachs expects a slowdown in recovery in the EMEA region in late 1H22 and early 2H22.

Despite this setback, the broker makes no changes to its outlook into FY23 and beyond.

Under a worst case scenario, recovery would be delayed another six months, estimates the analyst. However, it’s thought this scenario is rendered unlikely as hospitalisation rates remain under control at this stage.

The Neutral rating is maintained and the target price falls to $20.40 from $20.70, after Goldman Sachs allows for an AGM earnings update and the recent issue of convertible notes.

This report was published on December 9, 2021.

Target price is $20.40 Current Price is $17.78 Difference: $2.62
If FLT meets the Goldman Sachs target it will return approximately 15% (excluding dividends, fees and charges).

Silver Lake Resources has announced it has entered into a Subscription Agreement to acquire Harte Gold, having recently acquired Harte Gold's credit facilities, for a headline cost of around US$125 as reported by Canaccord Genuity.

The purchase cost comprises an approximate US$74.1m non-cash credit bid that includes the provision of a $10.8m debtor-in-possession loan to support working capital, and $28m in Silver Lake Resources shares that will satisfy debt with Appian Capital.

Travel, Leisure & Tourism – Overnight Price: $5.49

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

In the wake of Webjet’s 1H results, Goldman Sachs assesses positive progress in the reopening. The analyst believes the 20% cost savings target remains intact for WebBeds, a division believed to have a long-term-growth story.

The broker’s positive assessment comes despite a slight miss for 1H earnings (EBITDA) versus the analyst’s expectations. However, the result was considered positive in terms of cash generation and recovery in the Americas, among a few other qualitative markers.

Goldman Sachs makes no changes to its estimates due to the omicron variant and sees Webjet as a net beneficiary of the post-covid recovery. 

The Buy rating is maintained and the target price falls to $6.90 from $7.

WPL    WOODSIDE PETROLEUM LIMITED

NatGas – Overnight Price: $22.03

Jarden rates ((WPL)) as Buy (1) –

Hydrogen and ammonia, and to a lesser extent solar and carbon capture and storage (CCS) projects, are the focus of Woodside Petroleum's new energy strategy, explains Jarden.

The broker believes the right balance for the proposed -5bn investment has been struck with less than 20% of 2022-30 estimated cumulative free cash flow required for 2026-30. This period is where the bulk of the investment is skewed, notes the analyst.

Emissions reduction targets were reiterated by management and are on track after the proposed BHP ((BHP)) petroleum merger, which is considered a positive by Jarden.

The Buy rating and $28.60 target price are maintained.
