February results were broadly in-line despite ongoing systemic risks (housing slowdown, weak consumer, intensifying regulatory and political risk). Capital management upside was dominated by Resources, while Industrials appear to be holding back some dry powder given their challenging outlook, themes we recently discussed in this wire.

A rather unpleasant end to 2018 saw the S&P/ASX 200 index down 9% over the final quarter. Tactically it has been a blessing in disguise for investors at the start of the year. Valuations have de-rated sharply on the back of a multitude of macro-economic scares and have left the... Show More

The ASX edged higher with most of the gains coming late in the day, strong buying in the match with light volumes and options expiry playing around with prices - some big lines in the banks went through today ahead of what should be a fairly quite Friday leading into... Show More

Volatility has returned with vigour over the past two months, with the ASX200 posting its third straight negative month in November. While we don't subscribe to the view that equity markets are heading into a deep bear market, macro events will determine market direction in coming weeks. With global growth... Show More

We have spoken about market abnormalities and the risk of fresh volatility for some time. Overall we think current weakness will prove to be another 'reality check' for a market that had run a little ahead of itself, rather than a precursor to something more serious.

The ASX 200 Accumulation index returned a respectable 15.4% at the close of reporting season, and is poised to return a similar amount over the next 12 months if all goes to plan. Factset consensus forecasts anticipate another year of 7.2% earnings growth at a dividend yield of 4.6% which... Show More

In our reporting season preview, we noted that the spread in consensus forecasts was very narrow and the potential for beats and misses versus market expectations was lower than normal. It is this dynamic that foreshadowed many of the results across our coverage universe, where results were mostly in line... Show More

With bumper margins and bloated kitties, Australia’s mid-tier gold miners are primed for M&A. But this time, it’s expected to be more bolt-on than mega-merger. Smaller companies with growing inventories are seen as potential targets. And talking of targets, Argonaut Resources is about to drill several in the Gawler Craton. Show More

This time last year we wrote a piece on Livewire calling a short-term top for resources, targeting a correction of around 10% before we became buyers once again, which you can see here. As it turned out, resources did retreat by a little over 10% affording us an attractive buying... Show More

A very weak session for local stocks even though the index finished flat with early optimism sold into fairly aggressively, particularly on the close despite US Futures trading higher / S&P pointing to a rise of 0.5% in the US tonight. The domestic trading desks we deal with are all... Show More
