Recent Opinion for the Income Portfolio

AGL Energy Ltd (AGL) $7.45

AGL has been a star performer in 2022 which has generated  a significant paper profit in our Active Income Portfolio in just 2-months. The big question being is it just another bounce within an awful bear market or is AGL finally turning the corner? Last year the company said it plans to split in two with the “new fresh” AGL focused on energy retailing...

BHP Group (BHP) $46.56

BHP -0.3%: the Big Australian was out with their December Quarter update today highlighting operations for the first half which were largely as expected. Where it mattered in iron ore BHP hit the numbers, up 1% QoQ and maintaining guidance. A ramp up in production out of the South Flank operations were slightly offset by a lack of train operators...

Metrics Credit Partners (MXT) $2.09

We have owned MXT in the Income Portfolio since they listed on the ASX in 2017. When they listed, they were the first sort of listed vehicle tapping an alternative style income market, in this case being domestic corporate loans, so sitting alongside, or in place of banks, lending to Australian corporates. Over that time, MXT has been a consistent performer, have stayed...

The most notable drag was Magellan Financial Group (MFG) down by -5.53%.

BHP Group (BHP) $46.70

BHP has experienced a volatile ride over the  last 6-months having been heavily influenced by the respective aggressive moves in both iron ore and oil. In less than 2-weeks’ time BHP will no longer be listed in the UK and its market cap in Australia will soar, taking it from around 6% of the ASX200 to closer to 10%, reclaiming its “Big” title in the process. By definition...

Magellan Financial Group (MFG) $19.98

The news has gone quiet around MFG of late considering how much real estate in the business pages Hamish Douglass had been occupying, now the dust appears to have settled it feels like an ideal time to re-evaluate the battered fund manager, especially with a large fully franked dividend due in around a months’ time:

Chapter 3 – Increase flexibility & quality

We have already touched on increasing defensives and cash through 2022 but what stocks to hold in respective sectors and the market as we alluded to earlier ultimately dictates portfolio performance and as we expect shorter and sharper cycles opportunities to buy & sell are likely to present themselves at regular times – not being active enough on the sell side was probably our largest portfolio detractor last year.

The cap rate (standing for capitalisation rate) is a widely used measure in property which divides the net income generated by the property by its value.
