Buy, Sell, Hold Recommendations – Herald Sun 5/5/2013
Geoff has over 10 years’ experience researching and analysing Australian stocks, with a passion for fundamental analysis and specialty in identifying undervalued companies – particularly at the smaller end of the market.
The Reject Shop (TRS) – Recent capital raising to fund expansion a positive. Same store sales growth running ahead of targets. Expect outperformance to continue.
Energy Action (EAX) – Small energy services kicking goals with its energy management services and novel energy auctions. Company on track for fifth straight year of revenue and profit growth.
Shares To Hold -
Seek Limited (SEK) – High quality company enjoying strong domestic and international growth. ROE and margins remain very high, but valuation looks stretched at current levels.
James Hardie (JHX) – US property market continues to turn around and there is room for fibre cement to increase market share, but sales growth looks more than priced in.
Matrix Engineering (MCE) – Embattled engineering company’s recent quarterly results showed some signs of life but we still expect FY13 results to underwhelm investors.
Elders Limited (ELD) – Still faces a bleak future despite selling off assets to reduce debt. Chances of a bailout via takeover look stymied by existence of hybrid securities.
