"Bumpier seas are being anticipated for international equity markets between now and the year end. Two months of absolute calm, with daily moves of less than 1%, looks likely to be replaced by a period of increased volatility as doubts begin to rise over the sustainability of the highly accommodative policies of both the ECB and BoJ, together with increasing concerns regarding a lack of policy consensus within the FOMC. The net result of which will likely be a reduction in portfolio leverage by asset risk management committees, resulting a larger market swings while adjustments are made. Today, the President of the European Commission, Claude Juncker, will deliver his annual State of the European Union address which could shed some light on likely policy and vision, particularly in the light of Brexit, along with the proposed Italian Referendum, imminent elections in Spain and the US followed next year by Germany and France. While loud calls for a further rate cut are not expected, focus will move rapidly onto Japan, whose two-day central bank policy meeting starting on 20th September will also review the unfavourable effects of negative interest rates. With Fed Funds indicating just a 15% chance of a rate cut taking place this month, US equities were sold off again overnight amid polls showing rising support for Republican presidential contender, Donald Trump. Asian equities largely followed this lead, with the Shanghai Composite the main casualty despite its economic planning committee approving almost RMB200bn in investment projects as Beijing seeks to spur growth through domestic investment. The UK is due to release unemployment figures this morning, while Eurozone Industrial Output data is also expected. No major UK corporates are due to provide earning figures this morning, although smaller companies like Alliance Pharma (APH.L), Chariot Oil & Gas (CHAR.L), Dunelm (DNLM.L), Galliford Try (GFRD.L), Modern Water (MWG.L), Rockhopper Exploration (RKH.L) and Wilmington (WIL.L) are anticipated. Markets will also remain sensitive to further news reports from Iran, regarding its threat to shoot down US surveillance planes flying over its territory and the restarting of exports by the Libyan State Oil Company following recapture of its domestic terminals. The FTSE-100 is seen rising some 20 points in early morning trade. " - Barry Gibb, Research Analyst

Acquisition of London & Colonial
21 Oct 16
The acquisition of LCH for up to £5.4m adds a SIPP offer to STM’s portfolio as well as strengthening the group's Life and QROPS books. Employing cash, debt and an element of deferred purchase terms makes the deal usefully earnings-enhancing, adding £0.5m to 2017 estimates. Forecast EPS of 5.9p for 2017 places the shares on a PE multiple of 8.0x, while retaining net cash on the balance sheet leaves the group well positioned to maintain its commitment to a progressive dividend policy.
UK Housebuilding Sector: Q3 2016 - “I am Steve McQueen”
11 Oct 16
Steve was street savvy, but he was not the smartest knife in the drawer, which makes his Delphic comment to Robert Vaughn all the more surprising. What Steve was saying is that “it’s not over yet”; that there is still a lot more to come (sadly for McQueen, who died in 1980 aged 50, it was a future that was not his). The same is true of Brexit and the collateral undulations that it has riven in the UK Housebuilding Sector. Immediately post-the-Brexit-vote, the UK Housebuilding Sector tanked 36% in value in two trading days (24 and 27 June with a weekend in between); and at one stage was off almost 40%.
N+1 Singer - Morning Song 21-10-2016
21 Oct 16
Xaar has announced that its FD, Alex Bevis, will be leaving to pursue other opportunities after almost 6 years with the group. A search is underway for his replacement and Alex will remain with Xaar until 24th March 2017. While Alex’s departure is disappointing, Xaar’s strategy remains on track, with new product launches expected to drive near term organic sales growth and a target of £220m sales by 2020. This reflects stronger leverage of Xaar’s innovative technology into a broader spread of end products and markets, with the £220m expected to be composed of broadly equal contributions from ceramics, packaging & product printing, Thin film/P4, and partnerships/M&A. Prospects for the group are exciting, with positive news flow on product launches and end markets anticipated over the year ahead.
