"The global bond markets saw another major sell-off yesterday, with the 30-year US T-bill yield rising above 3% for the first time since January. This is weighing the implication of the President-elect's wholly unorthodox policy proposals, the general expectation that Yellen will go ahead with the first Fed rate hike since 2006 in December and a growing expectation that Trump will champion an international reversal in the current fiscal-monetary mix of western economies. A looser fiscal policy together with a harder monetary policy, of course, demands a much-diluted version of present 'central bank independence' for whom the main proponents, Donald Trump and Theresa May, could well be the first to move toward subverting the system through the appointment of politically compliant governors to replace the conservative academic postings of the past couple of decades. So has 'Trumpism' started to be priced in? After the hostile takeover, might the populist outsider simply surround himself with insiders? Some optimists seem to believe in this rosy scenario. The Dow Jones inched up to its third consecutive record close yesterday after the Fed's Jeffrey Lacker noted in a speech that fiscal stimulus 'would bolster the case for raising rates' while, by comparison, the NASDAQ drifted lower on continuing concerns over tax imposition proposed on their international cash piles. Asia ended mix to fractionally down, avoiding the broad sell-off seen amongst emerging markets, as their currencies rallied marginally against the US$. Today the UK is due to publish monthly inflation figures, while the Eurozone will release GDP data. Being deep in the results season, earnings or trading updates are expected from the likes of BTG (BTG.L), Card Factory (CARD.L), Crest Nicholson (CRST.L), easyJet (EZJ.L), Enterprise Inns (ETI.L), First Group (FGP.L), Hayward Tyler (HAYT.L), Land Securities (LAND.L), McCarthy & Stone (MCS.L), Premier Foods (PFD.L) and Vodafone (VOD.L). Investors will also be listing out for more details from Rudy Giuliani, the former Mayor of New York, regarding his overnight suggestion that defeating ISIS will be an early focus of Donald Trump's foreign policy. The FTSE-100 is seen rising 10 or so pints in early trading." - Barry Gibb, Research Analyst

Using their loaf
30 Nov 16
Finsbury Foods has been transformed by a series of acquisitions that has contributed to revenue and earnings nearly doubling over the last three years. Record levels of capital investment continue to improve the Group’s competitive position, whilst exposure to growth segments of the food market is helping likefor-likes. Profit growth is expected to slow in the current year in the absence of acquisitions but underlying trading remains resilient despite some cost headwinds, whilst debt reduction is accelerating. The rating is undemanding and the recent share price weakness has created a buying opportunity.
New packing facility; Highly significant for underpinning future growth
06 Dec 16
HFG has announced plans to expand its packing capability in Australia, by constructing (at an expected investment cost of A$115m financed through bank facilities) a new meat processing facility in Queensland, in order to supply Woolworths, the leading grocery retailer in Australia. This is a highly significant development as the new Queensland plant, alongside HFG’s two existing dedicated retail packed meat facilities in Melbourne and Bunbury (both operated as a joint venture with Woolworths) should mean that HFG supplies the bulk of Woolworth’s c.1,000 stores with their red meat needs over time. In short, this development should underpin growth at HFG for many years to come from 2020 onwards, which, in turn, should result in a higher and more stable earnings stream over time, supporting a continued rerating of HFG’s valuation multiple, in our view. We reiterate our BUY.

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*.
