Geoff has over 10 years’ experience researching and analysing Australian shares, with a passion for fundamental analysis and specialty in identifying undervalued companies – particularly at the smaller end of the market.
Next DC (NXT) – Data-centre company is now approaching profitability. The sale-leaseback of its properties will provide NXT with the cash to pursue opportunities in this high-growth industry.
Ardent Leisure Group (AAD) – Expect FY13 results to surprise to the upside, driven by strong growth and margins in the US and at its local Health Clubs division.
Regional Express (REX) – Facing rising costs, but this solid performer remains the pick of the airline sector. Trades on a P/E of just 8x and a div yield of almost 6%.
Iluka Resources (ILU) – Experiencing a tough FY13, with demand and pricing soft. However potential sale of iron ore royalties a positive and will strengthen the company’s financial position.
Beach Petroleum (BPT) – Mid-tier energy producer is struggling under increasing costs. Potential stagnation by Chinese economy could overshadow BPT’s recent supply deal with Origin Energy.
Invocare Limited (IVC) – Acquisitions have driven growth and investment portfolio has appreciated but stock looks significantly overvalued at current prices.
