Australian Broker Call *Extra* Edition – May 16, 2022

Daily Market Reports | May 16 2022

This story features AMCOR PLC, and other companies. For more info SHARE ANALYSIS: AMC

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.

Paper & Packaging – Overnight Price: $18.33

Jarden rates ((AMC)) as Buy (1) –

Despite an inflationary environment, Amcor's third quarter earnings per share were a 3% beat to consensus while the company also managed to retain full year guidance despite market fears in what Jarden considers a good result.

The update also saw the company lift its long-run capital expenditure guidance to 4-5% of revenue from a previous 3-4%, although Jarden noted it is unclear if this increase refers to growth expenditure or simply stay-in-business costs.

The broker finds Amcor to be handling inflationary and availability issues well, and noted free cash flow remains strong at US$1.1bn for the year.

The Buy rating is retained and the target price decreases to $17.95 from $18.05.

Banks – Overnight Price: $25.39

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

Further to the first half results analysis, Goldman Sachs has revised estimates for FY22-24. Estimates for FY22 have been revised up by 3.1% while the outlying years have been revised down.

The changes are based on a better net interest margin trajectory and lower bad debts, partially offset by higher expenses.

The bank's shelving of cost targets removes the valuation support and as a result the broker downgrades to Neutral from Buy. Target is reduced to $29.84 from $32.51.

New Battery Elements – Overnight Price: $0.28

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

Shaw and Partners considers the appointment of tier-one engineering contractors to conduct the Definitive Feasibility Study for the Ta Khoa project in Vietnam to be a major step towards derisking the project, which is mooted to begin first production in 2025.

The broker believes Blackstone Minerals is committed to producing an ESG-friendly product and recently signed a collaborative partnership with the leader in lithium supply chain tracebility – Circulor – which should help ensure the company continues to attract capital support.

Shaw appreciates the company's net cash position of $49m and recent strategic mine developments.

Household & Personal Products – Overnight Price: $1.33

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

The downgrades resulted from weaker than expected revenues from Andalou, Go-To and the digital businesses Nourished Life and Flora & Fauna, explains the analyst. Also, costs were higher than expected.

IT & Support – Overnight Price: $1.27

Jarden rates ((NTO)) as Buy (1) –

Nitro Software's annual recurring revenue was up 61% at the end of the first quarter, including contributions from the Connective acquisition. Jarden notes Connective appears to have grown 30% in the quarter, which alongside group growth suggests the company should meet the bottom end of its full year recurring revenue guidance range.

However, including anticipated synergies of US$2.5m, recurring revenue could be closer to the top end of the guidance range at year's end, while upside to the current growth rate could see the company deliver a beat.

Jarden highlights the first quarter recurring revenue increase was driven by key customer wins in the period that include Lloyds Banking Group, Subsea 7, NRG Energy, BP, BNP Paribas and Pioneer Natural Resource.

Gaming – Overnight Price: $3.07

Jarden rates ((SGR)) as Buy (1) –

Extrapolating from other companies, Jarden expects Star Entertainment's March-quarter report will soften due to staff absenteeism

Meanwhile, the NSW inquiry has panned out worse than the broker expected, and the seriousness of revelations leads the broker to remove assumptions that the company will gain extra EGMs and that the company will be found "not suitable" to hold a licence.

Further, Jarden doubts Star will be able to finalise the sale and lease-back transaction of OpCo PropCo in the near term, raising the prospect of higher gearing and dividend vulnerability.

Buy rating retained, Jarden remaining upbeat on the long view noting the property and licences underwrite the valuation.

Super Retail March quarter performance was ahead of Jarden's expectations in every division, supported by a record Easter period. The broker noted gross margins were in line with the first quarter and like for like sales were up 4.4%. 

The result is particularly strong given the broker's prior expectation of slowing sales in the second half, as well as commentary from the company for anticipated gross margin moderation in the period. The broker's full year earnings per share estimate increases 11%.

Sales growth momentum has continued for Temple & Webster in the first four months of the year, with revenue growth of 23% for the period exceeding Jarden's expected 15%. The company has suggested it retains a strong inventory position heading into the fourth quarter, which should provide a buffer for supply chain disruptions.

Food, Beverages & Tobacco – Overnight Price: $1.25

Following 3Q results for Top Shelf International, Shaw and Partners decreases its pro forma revenue forecasts to reflect slightly higher than expected expenditure. The target price falls to $2.14 from $2.27 and the Buy rating is unchanged.

The broker believes 3Q revenue was strong, given NED volumes were constrained during January and February.

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

Wilsons assesses a mixed 3Q result for Top Shelf International with available whisky inventory holding back Branded Product sales growth.  These sales are expected to materially improve from the 4Q.

A decline of -16% for quarter-on-quarter sales was primarily driven by the Contract Packing division, explains the analyst. Meanwhile, operating costs were broadly stable which is considered to bode well for future operating leverage.

The broker lowers its forecast sales by -19-28% and gross margin assumptions by -20-23%, driven by a slower ramp-up profile and channel/product mix changes, including lower vodka sales. The target falls to $1.80 from $2.02 and Overweight rating retained.
