MM’s view on PointsBet (PBH) & a2 Milk (A2M)

I presently have 2 stocks Pointsbet (PBH) & A2 Milk (A2M) that I am under water on. I have been hanging on to same due to the low value versus loss achieved and that both companies could eventually be taken over, as I still believe that there current value is well below what the companies are worth. Understanding you do not provide financial advice, I would be interested in your thoughts on each company. Regards John


Hi John,

Two very different businesses which have certainly endured a tough time post COVID:

a2 Milk (A2M) $4.76 : A2M has bounced over the last few weeks around optimism towards Chinese-Australian relations post the election and the increasing shortage of baby formula in the US – this week saw Washington do a deal with Bubs Australia  (BUB) to help relieve their shortage, a great read through for A2M hence even though we hold no position a decent squeeze towards $6 wouldn’t surprise, especially as almost 5% of the stock is held short. i.e. If we still held, we would hold it for a further squeeze higher.

PointsBet (PBH) $2.73 – Investors are even more bearish PBH holding a 7.6% short position, the stocks showing no clear signs of bouncing with the wagering business clearly needing a catalyst of positive news to gain some friends. We still think the operating business is cheap around $2.73, we’ll get another update shortly however at the end of Dec they had $570m is cash while their market cap is just $723m – although they would have burnt some over the past 6 months in the highly competitive market. Following its 80% plunge from its 2021 we aren’t considering increasing our position until a catalyst emerges, however we do view the stock as both cheap and a potential takeover target.
