  • No matter what the market’s doing, there will always be good and bad stocks. Our analysts apply a mix of fundamental and technical research to identify the best opportunities for medium to longer term investors and those running self managed super funds.

    Ultimately our aim is to find companies that are undervalued. We start the process by looking at what’s happening globally to work out which sectors of the market are likely to outperform. Then we look for the most appealing stocks. We assess individual companies and calculate our best estimates of what the stock is worth based on forecasts of the companies’ earnings and cash flows. This process involves analysing a wide range of factors that affect the company.

    We typically have around 20-30 stocks in our portfolio, so we can afford to scour the market, be picky and invest in only the very best opportunities.

    See below some of the hottest stocks to buy and sell on the S&P/ASX 200 and which stocks to watch.

    Share to sell – Graincorp (GNC)

      GNC’s FY15 result was in line with the company’s guidance. We suspect that FY16 will be another below-average year for cropping and the winter harvest is likely to be downgraded over coming weeks. With the effects of the El Nino weather phenomenon also likely to weigh – through lower crop yields and less revenue

    Share to buy – Computershare (CPU)

    Computershare maintained FY16 guidance and provided greater clarity around cost savings and gearing targets at its recent AGM. We see the company responding to market feedback and this suggests a more communicative stance in the months ahead. With a rise in the Fed funds rate around the corner, which would be a positive for CPU,

    Share to buy – QANTAS (QAN)

    The stars appear to be aligning for Qantas once again. We expect FY earnings to be up in the order of 20-25%, with the company poised to make a record profit, underpinned by low oil prices. On that front, whilst oil prices have been stronger of late, Saudi Arabia recently made deep reductions to the

    Share to sell – Woolworths (WOW)

    Woolworths’ recent results were weak and the company is under significant pressure from competitors. The underlying grocery business saw margin decline while Big W and Masters were weaker than expected. The results were the worst for the supermarket and retail giant since 2012. Things aren’t likely to pick up anytime soon either, with Aldi recently

    Share to sell – Crown Resorts (CWN)

    Since topping our around $16 in February, Crown has really struggled and is presently trading near $11. Macau continues to weigh on the stock, while pressure on VIP remains. The Melco JV has been the primary cause of volatility and caution prevails regarding Macau because of China’s macroeconomic environment. Technically, we’re seeing everything that we

    Share to buy – Challenger Financial (CGF)

    Challenger’s recent results were strong, coming in ahead of expectations. We believe the stock to be good value, given a strong organic growth profile in an otherwise fully valued sector. Furthermore, the outlook for the Life Division is attractive, while the funds management operations continue to expand. It appears that a solid base has been

    Share to Buy – Qantas (QAN)

    Qantas reports tomorrow and is on track to chalk up their largest annual profit since 2008. We are expecting a strong result which could push the share price significantly higher. Earlier in the week, Sydney Airport agreed to buy terminal 3 at Sydney Airport off QAN, for $535 million. In return for Sydney Airport buying
