Opinions for stocks held in the Growth Portfolio

Whitehaven Coal (WHC) $1.57

Leading into this update we’ve seen a consistent string of broker upgrades, Goldman Sachs upped it to $2.20 price target , Bell Potter to $2.35, and Morgan Stanley to a bullish $2.60, in other words, the market had become universally bullish WHC as coal prices rallied and WHC management did a good job of talking up the stock with a marketing push around town.

Ramsay Healthcare (RHC) $68.01

Private hospital operator RHC has been trading sideways for almost a year and we feel as the COVID backdrop improves this quality business is positioned strongly. Our 4% holding is not huge and we may look to increase as we tweak across other areas.

Zip Co (Z1P) $9.61

Z1P -1.23%: Jumped out of the blocks this AM after Citi upgraded to a BUY with an $11.30 PT, Z1P rallied to a $10.62 high before entering a trading halt to raise capital.

Monadelphous (MND) $11.02

In hindsight MM has unfortunately held onto our mining services positions in MND and NRW Holdings (NWH) too long and some great paper profits have vanished as corrections have been far deeper than we anticipated.

National Australia Bank (NAB) $26.83

MM has made no secret of our like for banks moving forward and its held us in good stead over the last year but with its dividend looming in May an aggressive move on the upside by NAB wouldn’t surprise MM as yield hungry investors eye the fully franked offering.
