Opinions for stocks held in the Emerging Companies Portfolio

Select Harvests (SHV) $6.37

Today we have started with lesser known Victorian based $770mn almond producer SHV, which is showing encouraging signs of finally regaining its mojo after being hammered by falling almond prices. We believe this cyclical story will turn around sooner rather than later helped by the tailwind of general food inflation, we like it at today’s levels but especially if the current weakness in US stocks sends it down in sympathy towards $6.

Adore Beauty (ABY) $1.35

Australia biggest online beauty retailer, Adore Beauty (ABY) has been one of the most disappointing stocks we’ve owned in the past few years, buying in the IPO at $6.75 and still holding today. Back in 2020, they raised ~$270m giving it a market capitalisation at listing of $635m. The stock rallied initially to hit a $7.42 high, before sliding ever since.

Emerging Companies Portfolio

The portfolio added +0.76% for the week while cash sits around 4%. Our most recent purchase in Lynas Rare Earths (LYC) was the top performer up by +9.53% while Praemium (PPS) +7.96% & Audinate (AD8) +6.10% were also strong. Zip Co (Z1P) was down -11.54% and PointsBet (PBH) fell -6.74% to be the biggest drags.

Calix (CXL) $6.93

CXL +4.21%: Announced today that they (along with Pilbara Minerals (PLS) had received a $20m Government grant under the Modern Manufacturing Initiative – in short, CXL will help to decarbonise the electrification pathway as Australia positions itself to ‘value-add’ in the production of key commodities. CXL is a very difficult stock to value which makes it heavily exposed to sentiment shifts – in early March shares were $6.12 before rising...

Aussie Broadband (ABB) $4.06

Last month saw the fast-growing telco fall ~40% on a downgrade that was a fraction of that amount. We believe this outsized fall creates an opportunity for 3 key reasons:

Calix (CXL) $7.11

The environmental solutions company has been a standout performer in the portfolio in recent months but took a hit in the last week. Shares fell despite positive news regarding its work in antimicrobial resistance. The company signed on with the Australian Government to be a part of their Solving Antimicrobial Resistance in Agribusiness, Food and Environments (SAAFE) research push. While a small...

A soft week for the portfolio down -7.87% while cash is sitting around 4%. Performance was weighed on by further broad-based weakness in small caps – the small-cap index down by a similar magnitude. Aussie Broadband (ABB) was the standout, managing a 2.02% gain while Calix (CXL) was the weakest in the portfolio falling 17.33%. Selling has been savage in the small end of the market...

Bapcor (BAP) $6.40

Auto parts business Bapcor presented at the Macquarie Investor Conference yesterday with shares weaker on the day. The presentation came with no surprises which, in our view, should be more positive for the stock. They maintained guidance, and have done so now since the AGM in October despite a change in CEO. It also shows the business has returned to growth in the second half given the slow start to the year. Sales are up 3% for the 9 months to March, in line with consensus estimates.

Emerging Companies Portfolio

Another soft week for the portfolio down -5.03% while cash fell to around 4%. The carnage in small caps continues and the portfolio for its most part is looking sick. In times like this, patience is key as the fundamentals of many of these stocks have actually improved while the share prices have declined, meaningfully in some names. The biggest drag this week came from our largest position in Aussie Broadband (ABB)...
