VSA Agri Monthly: June 2015
30 Jun 15
The International Grains Council (IGC) recently trimmed its forecast for the 2015/16 wheat harvest by 4Mt to 711Mt, -1% YoY (USDA forecast: 722Mt). The IGC now expects global ending stocks to fall by 2.0Mt YoY to 196Mt, -2% YoY (USDA: 202Mt). The downgrade has been attributed to increased concerns about the weather in some wheat producing countries. In light of this situation, the benchmark US wheat contract touched US$5.86 a bushel in the futures market, its highest level for five months and an increase of almost 20% in the last two weeks. However, UK wheat pricing has remained subdued as high levels of on-farm stocks, and expectations of another large crop this year, prevent significant price appreciation at this point.

After last year’s anticipated arrival, and subsequent no-show, it looks like the El Niño phenomenon may finally appear this year. Depending on its severity, this can bring wet conditions in the Americas with drought conditions in Australia and South-East Asia. This would benefit palm oil prices, although the physical impact on production would After last year’s anticipated arrival, and subsequent no-show, it looks like the El Niño phenomenon may finally appear this year. Depending on its severity, this can bring wet conditions in the Americas with drought conditions in Australia and South-East Asia. This would benefit palm oil prices, although the physical impact on production would be lagged. A more immediate impact is likely to be seen with West African cocoa. The benchmark US cocoa price has increased c10% this month as fears of an El Niño have increased, along with the concerns about the level of production in Ghana, the world’s second largest producer. At the start of the year, we forecast that the benchmark US cocoa contract would surpass its 2014 high of US$3,371/t. It is currently trading at US$3,150/t, just c7% shy of this level.be lagged.

Panmure Morning Note 30-03-2017
30 Mar 17
FY16 PBT of £33.2m has come in towards the top end of the £32.2m-£33.5m range for consensus forecasts which had only very recently been modestly nudged up post the FY16 pre-close trading statement on January 12th. However, we believe the stockmarket will particularly welcome the significantly better than expected cash generation driving a robust net cash position of £32.3m (well ahead of our expectations of £22m) and a full year dividend growth of +17.1% to 17.1p (substantially ahead of our forecasted 15.6p). The medium-term outlook remains positive, with HFG expecting further growth aided by continued focus on NPD and range extensions, whilst HFG now has visibility on strong profit growth with the new Portuguese j/v coming through in the short term and the planned Australian factory longer term. In brief, these strong FY16 results demonstrate HFG is in excellent shape operationally, strategically and financially with the firepower to simultaneously fund additional investment options and maintain an ongoing, attractive progressive dividend policy. We maintain our BUY.
