Topic of the quarter: In Issue 2, we concluded that the VW emissions scandal was likely to result in faster development and adoption of hybrid and electric vehicles. In this issue, we discuss what we think will be a key megatrend of the 21st century: the strong push to decarbonise vehicles AND power generation. The implications for the Industrials sector are substantial and we attempt to identify some of the key winners and losers of what we think is now an unstoppable force. The full list starts on page 8 but key winners we identify are: Lithium, Copper, Hydrogen, Composites, batteries and fuel cells, electric motors, wind turbine components, solar cells, ac/dc convertors and all forms of power storage.
Forecast downgrade after interims
17 Nov 15
Recent interim results reflect tough trading with some key consumer electronic customers. With a focus on better margins and cash flow rather than chasing volume there is still a turnaround story to be had, albeit with mixed underlying markets, as the previous forecast recovery has been delayed. A better H2 is anticipated as some delayed customer programmes have now launched. We have reduced our forecasts for the current year, with a 17% cut in adjusted PBT. While disappointing, we continue to see a recovery/turnaround story.

N+1 Singer - Small-cap quantitative research - New quality style screen + 11 quality focus stocks
09 Feb 17
We introduce our fourth and final style screen representing “quality”. This screens for stocks with the best combination of high returns on capital/equity, EBIT margins and operating cash-flow conversion rates. These criteria should help us monitor how strong underlying returns translate into share price performance over time and under varying market conditions. The screen selects the “best” 25 stocks from our universe of just over 500 stocks and, as usual, we focus on a shorter list of stocks we cover or otherwise know and believe to be particularly interesting. We provide brief investment summaries on these focus stocks on pages 4 – 9. We will monitor performance and refresh the screen in approximately 3-4 months time.
The Slide Rule
12 Jan 17
What is The Slide Rule? The Slide Rule has been designed to dramatically simplify the identification of the best companies in the UK small/mid-cap sector by making a quantitative assessment of the relative potential of each company. At its core, The Slide Rule aims to identify those companies that create genuine shareholder value through strong returns on capital and solid growth, but also present a value opportunity with the potential tailwind of earnings momentum. Companies are assessed within a Quality, Value, Growth and Momentum (QVGM) framework.
Time to go over weight
24 Feb 17
We believe equity investors are taking an unnecessarily cautious stance on the construction sector. Forward looking indicators (e.g. consumer confidence, construction PMIs and housing starts) point to a stable market and recent sales LFL are particularly encouraging (e.g. Marshalls). Near term margins may suffer temporary distortions as inflationary pressures build. However, history has shown that modest input cost inflation is actually a positive for earnings growth in the sector. Therefore, as we move into 2018, margin trends are likely to surprise on the upside.
