BRAINJUICER GROUP PLC
Driving flagship System 1 services
31 Mar 16
BrainJuicer is more clearly focusing on driving its higher quality earnings streams in ad-testing, brand tracking and predictive markets. These areas of the business are growing faster, are more scalable and should drive higher margins than the one-off research projects and consultancy services that have formed much of the mix historically. The group has very strong cash generation and a debt free balance sheet. Proof that the shift in emphasis is paying off should help close the discount with other quoted market research companies.
Putting the M in TMT
10 Nov 15
When certain investor groups focus on ‘tech’ stocks it is easy to forget that Media forms part of the wider TMT sector. Media (mass communication) companies have a wide range of activities. But as the public consumes media through an ever broader choice of devices and channels, media and technology have become inextricably linked. This can be related to how we consume media, with innovative music streaming platforms from the likes of 7digital (7DIG), to how corporates monitor the efficacy of their marketing dollar with Big Data analytics platforms such as that provided by Ebiquity (EBQ).
Waiting to crank up the growth
28 Sep 15
BrainJuicer’s (BJU) interims were in line with pre-close guidance. To meet broadly unchanged FY15 expectations, despite being behind H114, depends on strong trading in the final few weeks of the year (as is normal). Costs incurred in shifting the qualitative offer (15% revenue) to a new Brand Strategy service, together with one-off costs relating to property moves and an aborted acquisition, held back H1 profits but improved the overall commercial positioning. The current EV/EBITDA valuation is below that of market research peers, marking time before a more substantive increase in scale.
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.

Another positive financial performance in FY16
23 Feb 17
As expected, RELX produced satisfactory FY 16 results, with organic revenue growth positively accelerating to +4% (FY15 at +3%). Consolidated revenues reached £6,895m (+15%) after a total forex impact of +11%, reflecting the weakness in sterling versus both the US dollar and euro (only 7.3% of sales in the UK). The group’s adjusted OP amounted to £2,114m, up 6% organically (+16% reported) and reflecting an improving margin to 30.7% from 30.5% in FY15, although slightly under our 31% expectation. The adjusted EPS increased by 8% at CER to 72.2p (AV: 71.8p). The full-year dividend is raised 21% to 35.95p (AV at 34.8p) after a final at 25.7p from 22.3p a year earlier (as a reminder, the group had announced in August a larger than usual interim dividend primarily due to end-period forex). RELX announced a new £700m share buy-back programme for FY17e (£100m completed so far) after £700m completed in FY16 and is confident to deliver in FY17e “another year of underlying revenues, profit and earnings growth”, a positive statement although as vague as usual.
Back to Hold, See More Risk than Reward in the Near Term
17 Feb 17
Ahead of prelims on March 1st, we tweak estimates and move back from Buy to Hold. We do still see good long term value in ITV, based on a resilient structural position in UK TV viewing. However, after a 30% bounce from post-Brexit lows of c160p, we now see more negatives than positives looming in the near term. The risks include NAR weakness, studios trading, management change, and content acquisitions such as ETO. We do see possible upsides from retransmission costs and from bid vulnerability – but also a strong case for likely bidders to sit on their hands for now. We lower our Target Price from 265p to 225p, and travel cautiously into these prelims.
