Taking a ride with Uber
30 Jan 17
Pointer Telocation (PNTR) has won a five-year contract to provide fleet management and driver behaviour monitoring services for 4,000 New York black cars and car service vehicles working for online transportation network companies (TNC), including Uber and Lyft. The contract, announced on 17 January, represents PNTR’s first foray into the US market, which has been made possible by the group’s recent move into cloud-based SaaS services. Although small in revenue terms, the contract looks to have significant upside potential for the group. It should considerably raise the group’s profile in the US in the growth area of driver monitoring, even more-so as global ADAS leader Mobileye is working with PNTR in the project (providing ADAS services). If successful, we see very good prospects for it to lead to further business from the fast-growing TNC sector across the US and internationally, as well as from other forms of for-hire vehicles in NYC.
Improving top-line trend affected by one-offs
30 Nov 16
Pointer Telocation (PNTR) is a telematics company with a focus on Israel and Latin America. In addition to sales of its own telematics devices, the group generates high recurring revenues from mobile resource management services. The results for the first nine months support our top-line and normalised full year profit expectations, representing 74-76% of our forecast FY revenue and EBIT. We have nevertheless cut our current year PBT forecast by 6% to account for higher finance and one-off costs. PNTR’s forward P/E discount to the sector has widened from 34% to 37% in recent weeks and we see potential for a re-rating on stronger earnings growth, which should be driven by the recent acquisition of Cielo Telecom in Brazil, a strong pipeline of new products and rising service margins.
An appealing mix: Solid business and innovation

The Slide Rule
12 Jan 17
What is The Slide Rule? The Slide Rule has been designed to dramatically simplify the identification of the best companies in the UK small/mid-cap sector by making a quantitative assessment of the relative potential of each company. At its core, The Slide Rule aims to identify those companies that create genuine shareholder value through strong returns on capital and solid growth, but also present a value opportunity with the potential tailwind of earnings momentum. Companies are assessed within a Quality, Value, Growth and Momentum (QVGM) framework.
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.
