Highlights this quarter: Economics: Generally, the data points to modest growth continuing, with a more positive trend in PMI surveys suggesting decent m manufacturing momentum over the next six months. Currency weakness continues to be a double-edged sword for U K manufacturers, with exporters gaining competitiveness while input prices have risen. There has recently been a divergence of sterling’s performance against the euro and the USD. Those in commodity or competitive product areas may well have seen margin erosion, while many in intermediary goods have already passed on price increases to their customers. With low unemployment, the prospect of tighter labour markets post-Brexit and public sector pay caps starting to come off also signals the potential for some labour inflation, long absent from the UK industrial scene. Topic of the quarter: We believe that powerful macro and sectoral pressures will drive further significant changes to the manufacturing supply chain over the next few years. We investigate some of these pressures, with the move to outsource suppliers to low- cost centres, like China, now seeing a slight reverse flow with some restoring to shorten complex and often inflexible supply chains. We see systems technology facilitating greater supply-chain control and efficiency. Brexit will present challenges to the UK supply chain with price and time to market barriers likely to rise, presenting challenges to the UK’s highly integrated and time-sensitive supply chain. Slick distribution infrastructure and greater information sharing with suppliers are likely to prove winning strategies in optimising logistics and gaining stock efficiencies. Sector valuation: The industrials sector has continued to exhibit strength, with small-cap industrials outperforming by 2 % on last year and larger cap industrials by 17%. Currency and improving economic data have been a positive for the sector. While some other sectors have seen a pick-up in profit warnings over recent months, industrial technology companies have announced generally positive or in-line trading updates that have helped to drive the small-cap Industrials to an EV EBITDA of 8.4x and a P/E of 16.7x with the traditional small-cap discount narrowing.

We recently hosted our annual Industrial Technology dinner with 14 companies, many of which are active in the materials science arena; having focused previously on composite materials in the aerospace sector, in this edition of Machinations we focus on graphene, with its unique and potentially game-changing qualities and potential applications. Investments in this area remain fairly early stage, but could potentially reap huge rewards. Graphene is well represented in the UK small-cap market by several players.

After the severe short-term reaction to the Brexit vote, the UK manufacturing PMI now signals a return to more normal patterns and the stock market has recovered. Nevertheless, confidence remains weak. In the short term, it has largely been a phoney war. Sterling weakness has provided an opportunity for exporters. However, imported raw materials have also increased in price, as seen in the September inflation report with the input price index up 7.6%. Factory gate prices are lagging behind so beware of factory margins being squeezed. The reporting season has largely been devoid of serious shocks, with some order placement delays. However, due to the post Brexit fall in bond yields Carclo signalled a significant rise in its pension deficit, which wiped out its distributable reserves and caused it to cancel the previously declared dividend. We see potential for further bad news on pension deficits, with a number of larger industrials having significant pension liabilities that can only have grown since the referendum.

We’re just over three months in to 2019 and we’ve seen a 10% UK market rally, retracing much of the Q4 decline, such is the nature of fickle market sentiment. That said, many of the issues we wrote about three months ago that were impacting markets remain: notably Brexit, trade wars, geopolitics and global monetary policy. The 2019 rally thus far feels somewhat fragile, with competing forces of optimism on a potential trade deal which could underpin the rally, against the deterioration in underlying economic data that could ultimately undermine the recent market gains. In this context, we look at what the lead indicators and the market are telling us about the industrial cycle and the stocks most exposed to various industrial trends. The Q4 derating in short cycle industrials and autos had been vicious and while these sectors have seen a more solid footing in 2019, with earnings downgrades being priced in, it will likely take a trough in lead indicators before short cycle stocks can start to perform again and re-rate relative to the market.

We believe the Indian Federal election result implies an improving risk profile for CyanConnode’s operations in its key market. Incumbent Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s party, BJP, is due to retain power, which we believe improves the likelihood that energy policy will not materially change. In our view, this supports CyanConnode’s ambitions in the country. On our projections, India is expected to account for the majority of group revenue, midterm. The shares have performed poorly YTD despite evidence of commercial momentum and a broadly inline set of FY18 results. We believe the risk-reward proposition is currently particularly compelling and reiterate our Buy rating on CyanConnode.
Amino’s trading update for the six months ending May 2019 confirms that the group is currently on track to deliver its expectations for FY 19E. The business is traditionally seasonally-weighted towards the second half, so with H1 19 revenues of approximately $35m and a closing net cash position of $19.3m, we believe our FY 19E forecasts of $70.7m and $23.6m respectively to be achievable. We leave estimates unchanged following the release, but believe the commercial progress delivered during H1 and the successful completion of the transformation programme give further grounds for optimism in the outlook.

We have refreshed our quality style screen for the second time and report on style performance since the last refresh in October. Performance has been very strong, outperforming the small-cap index by c.1600bps (weighted basis) and c.1000bps (unweighted). There has been volatility with the market and this style has yet to be tested in a concerted down market, but in a flat or rising market quality appears to be a successful investment style in small-caps. We have highlighted 11 focus stocks in the new screen and will report back again on performance when we next refresh the screen in about 5-6 months’ time.

Gamma’s FY 2018 results show the anticipated continuation of the healthy performance which the Group has provided in recent years. In particular, they feature adjusted numbers which are 3-5% ahead of our estimates which were upgraded after January’s trading update. Importantly, the commentary and the numbers are consistent with recent trading updates and the evolution of Gamma’s strategy which was announced in some detail at the recent Capital Markets Days (CMD). The channel showed further growth during FY 2018 with more contract wins while the direct business also enjoyed a good 2018 – helped by a useful tailwind from contracts won in 2017. The outlook comments are positive and note the visibility afforded by the Group’s recurring revenue base. We make some small positive changes to adjusted estimates for FY 2019E and FY 2020E and introduce estimates for FY 2021E. In viewing the continued momentum in the business, we see our numbers as conservative and we expect to see Gamma further exploit the growth opportunities which it has identified.

2018 was a year of progress for CyanConnode whereby costs were dramatically reduced (-22%), evidence of real commercial traction emerged in key region India (£15m order book) and £5m of equity capital was raised to scale the business. FY18 revenues were slightly light due to accounting factors with a directly proportional impact on net income, with the group’s cash position inline with forecasts. Our forward estimates remain intact as we take encouragement from Q1’19 performance reported to be on budget and several contracts already won YTD. CyanConnode’s shares have fallen 29% YTD and trade on a modest 1.4x FY19E EV/sales relative to its projected growth profile. We reiterate our Buy rating and see substantial upside 12m PT of 12p.
Vodafone has released its annual results. Although there was not much new on the operational side, the dividend was cut to €0.09, as was unfortunately expected (but it was probably the right thing to do). This corresponds to 6% of yesterday’s stock price (vs 10% previously). The major telcos, offering a 4.5-5.5% yield, lend it some upside if the market has confidence, like us, in the sustainability of the dividend. We maitain our Buy on the stock.
