RBG’s trading update this morning highlights two case losses and a £4.0m non-cash write-off within its LionFish subsidiary. Whilst this news is disappointing, the remainder of the Group is trading well and marginally ahead of previous expectations. Group earnings downgrades are significant (-46% for FY22 and -35% for FY23) with no further contribution from LionFish assumed. On reduced earnings, though, the shares are only trading on 10.6x FY23 P/E, an 18% discount to the peer group average of 13

The share prices of many logistics-focused REITs, including Tritax EuroBox (EBOX), have been hit as interest rates have risen and the investment market has cooled. Inevitably, valuations in the low-yielding logistics property sector will fall as investors factor this in.
However, the occupier market is still a landlord’s market, with record low supply and robust demand putting owners in an advantageous position, meaning rental growth is very much in the picture. This will have an offsetting eff

If one looks through the current interest rate cycle and trusts that inflation will be brought under control at some point within an investable timescale, then the hope is that as the cost of capital reduces real estate values will rise again. Our worst-case scenario of a 200bps move in yields and no rental growth would see valuations fall by a third. Many of the discounts that industrial and logistics property companies are trading on are currently wider than this. Couple this with the strong o

Wise wants to drive the cost of remittances and cross-border transactions to zero, granting a strong pricing advantage vs. competitors plus, a strong barrier to entry. But how can Wise do so, profitably, when most of its peers can not?
Here lies the hidden value of its infrastructure, beyond software, which is the result of past spendings for licences, regulatory approvals and…more crucially, time.
We put a price on this infrastructure which we consider as goodwill in our NAV.
RBG’s interims confirm good progress in the first half resulting in significant revenue and profit growth, driven by last year’s Memery Crystal acquisition. The Group looks to be well on track for the full year, given positive ongoing demand for its services. Valuation remains compelling, in our view. We again highlight an anomalous discount to peers, with RBG trading at a 45% discount (on an FY23 P/E basis) despite growing at almost twice the rate of peers on our forecasts. The dividend yield i
