Chill for agents, spring in housing volumes
24 Nov 16
Yesterday’s Autumn Statement appears to be: good for 'alternative' housing providers, UK-focused contractors and materials producers; potentially problematic for mainstream housebuilders; and bad news especially for lettings-dominated agents. Chancellor Philip Hammond’s key spending measures included an additional £3.7bn funding to boost new housing volumes and £1.1bn for roads. Shares in estate agents, however, have fallen in response to the threat to ban them from charging fees to tenants.

"With polls narrowing enough to suggest that Clinton’s lead over Trump ahead of the November 8th presidential election is now just 3 points, traders have finally started to ask the unanswerable - which will be the winners and losers? Quite a quandary. Market anticipation of the Republican candidate winning would be a severe heightening of the market’s greatest phobia, uncertainty and rising risk aversion. The first signs of this were evident overnight, not helped by FOMC conflict seemingly projecting stalemate at the Fed, as the US$ fell and bonds gained. This, in fact, follows the established historical pattern of the currency reacting more favourably to a Democrat in the White House. US equities that started their session strongly, gave nearly everything back by the close with only the tech-heavy NASDAQ registering a reasonable gain while energy stocks continued to weaken following continued US inventory build, the IEA report that foresaw the current supply glut continuing into 2017 and whose argument is being boosted by news of planned export resumption from both Libya and Nigeria. Asia was similarly mixed with the Nikkei the principal casualty on the back of stronger Yen due to forex traders switching US$ positions, while China was closed and gently selling of commodity stocks weakened the ASX. A number of market sensitive macro releases are due today, including the Eurozone inflation report and retail sales data from both the UK and the US. UK corporates due to report earnings include Morrisons (MRW.L), Next (NXT.L), Ophir Energy (OPHR.L), Tribal Group (TRB.L) and a Q2’16 update from Booker Group (BOK.L). Later in the UK trading session, the Bank of England is also due to disclose its rate interest decision; having told the markets last week that “we are very much not out of ammunition, nor are we trigger happy” Governor Mark Carney effectively added to traders’ growing doubts regarding the effectiveness of prospective central bank policy against a global backdrop of weakening growth. No change in the UK base rate is expected today. The FTSE-100 is seen down some 20 points in early morning trade. " - Barry Gibb, Research Analyst

"With the UK market awaiting the new era of Prime Minister May and what it might mean for big business, economic stance and European policy, London markets are expected to be modestly down today. The FTSE-100 seen opening 25 or so points in the red. Seeking leads from elsewhere, investor will more likely be led by international sentiment. Various Fed speakers yesterday afternoon outlined their vision and concerns for the US economy, concluding that while it was still too soon to judge the overall impact of Brexit and that uncertainty had increased (Mester), they also concluded people remain cautiously optimistic (Kashkari). Taking a hint from this while anticipating the current standstill on interest rates will remain in place for a little longer, the Dow broke through its previous closing high of 19th May while the NASDAQ also turned positive for the year as traders renewed their push into riskier and growth stocks once again. Asian equity markets also chalked up further gains across the board on Wednesday, again supported by investor belief that Japan is considering an aggressive form of policy easing to jumpstart domestic activity. Excitement was tempered when the Japanese government denied speculation it was prepared to instruct the BoJ to directly finance spending or tax cuts, but the Nikkei still ended the day strongly ahead. While UK data watchers can expect release of the Bank of England's Q2 survey and the RICS Residential House Price report this morning, the US only contributes its weekly petroleum status report this afternoon. Another Fed speaker, Robert Kaplan is also expected to outline his view of US financial wellbeing, while UK media will likely closely follow further updates on the Labour Party leadership crisis, following Mr Corbyn's automatic qualification for forthcoming ballot.
Panmure Morning Note 01-12-16
01 Dec 16
Consistent with the FY16 trading update/pre-close on September 14, today’s FY16 results are in line with our and consensus underlying PBT expectations of £12.5m (+22.5% YoY). The total FY16 dividend is up 36%, covered 3.4x, whilst net cash is £6.9m (+53%). FY16 represented another good year of execution, and FY17 has started well. The company's business mix is now more diverse across geographies (International accounted for 26% of total sales vs 21% in FY15) and we see CCT’s increasing diversity in retail distribution as both a further risk-mitigation and opportunity driver. We make no changes to our FY17 and FY18 PBT forecasts of £13.5m and £14.5m (albeit, we make some changes to the constituent parts) and introduce a FY19 PBT of £15.5m. We maintain our BUY and TP of 635p.
Strong H2 expected
30 Nov 16
H1 results were in line with expectations with PBT of £9.0m, EPS of 9.9p and DPS of 7.2p. The NAV / share is 253p. We expect the company to have a strong H2 based on its forward sales position and the timing of developments coming through. Telford has a strong balance sheet, a large development pipeline and impressive forward sales position, as well as good levels of demand for its product and geography from a diverse group of buyers. No change to forecasts at this stage.
US$500m to be invested in start-ups by 2026
28 Nov 16
BMW started a venture capital fund in 2011 with an initial investment of $100m. This is now to be expanded to $500m within the next ten years. The fund, called ‘BMW i Ventures’, has been moved from NYC to Mountain View, CA, to have closer access to the technology developed in the Silicon Valley. The investment focus will be on Enabling Technology and Digital Vehicle Technology, Mobility and Digital Services, Customer Experience, and Advanced Production Technology. According to BMW, the fund has closed 15 deals in ‘mobility-related’ technologies so far. It typically acquires a minority stake in start-ups which allows it to gain access to external innovations (so-called ‘outside-in’) that secure the company’s role as a technology pioneer. Simultaneously, it provides support for start-ups by offering internal resources (so-called ‘inside-out’) such as technical expertise and access to its own network of an established car producer.
N+1 Singer - Morning Song 29-11-2016
29 Nov 16
Vp has reported another impressive set of interims, confirming strong growth in most markets and a positive outlook. Recent acquisitions are bedding in well and the full year outturn is set to exceed previous expectations (5%/6% EPS upgrades in FY17/FY18). The recent Capital Markets Day provided a reminder of Vp’s qualities (specialist focus, high returns, strong cash generation) and its growth potential, which in our view are not reflected in a modest <11x P/E rating. We firmly believe the shares are due a re-rating and see intrinsic value in excess of 800p.
Joy of Techs
21 Nov 16
ICT evolution is driven by technological development as advances are made which both meet and shape customer requirements. Our 2011 note No such thing as a telco described the modern reality in that former ‘telcos’ now deliver varying elements of a range of managed services. We built on this theme last year, exploring in further detail their evolutionary paths, operating fundamentals, and cashflow yield similarities. In the consumer environment, demand for bundles of technology is complemented by demand for content. Across the pond, the mooted combination of AT&T and Time Warner typifies the bundled need of ‘pipe’ and content, since unbundled alternatives such as FaceTime and WhatsApp can be easier and clearer to chat over, and Amazon and Netflix are easier to watch anywhere. In the UK, BT’s defensive actions cover delivery, content and capabilities, acquiring EE yet also buying football rights. While TV was long ago added to triple play to become quad play, voice is now merely an app, and fixed and mobile seen as just dumb pipes: it's the content that will influence consumer choices. Growth of TV and film as well as music and gaming over IP leads to UK small cap opportunities. In context of the drive to maximise value from pipes and access by offering content and data, we look at some amongst the potential tech small cap beneficiaries: Amino*, Keyword Studios, ZOO Digital*, 7digital*, KCOM* and CityFibre*.
