Share Tips - News, Analysis & Hot Stocks

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.
