Questions over Woolworths

05 November 2013 | Broker reports editor

 QuestionsThe supermarket giant is on a high price and growth is only expected to be in the single digits. It is fighting back against Coles, but there are question marks over the soundness of the investment.


Is ANZ fairly priced?

30 October 2013 | Broker reports editor

PriceThe ANZ result was strong, but very much in line with what analysts expected. Meanwhile, APRA is warning the major banks not to pay out too much as dividends so as to bolster capital reserves. For investors there do not seem to be many surprises.


Coles' momentum slows

28 October 2013 | Broker reports editor

MomentumColes is slowing, but Bunnings is strong and the coal assets reasonable. That is the confusing picture with the conglomerate Wesfarmers. Brokers are divided, and some are bearish.


Telstra rethought

24 October 2013 | Broker reports editor

TelstraTelstra has been seen as a defensive stock for some time, in part because of the uncertainty over the NBN and its changed status in the market, and in part because it is high yielding, paying out a high proportion of its profits. But is it a defensive stock, or a company on the cusp of a growth spurt?


Brambles getting mixed assessments

20 October 2013 | Broker reports editor

MixedBrambles gives exposure to the global economy, but analysts are seeing the stock as being fairly priced. The dividend yield is on the low side and the prospects for earnings upgrades are modest.


Qantas fails to impress

17 October 2013 | Broker reports editor

QantasJetstar is making forays into the Japanese market which may eventually pay off for Qantas. But there are many reasons to approach the stock with considerable caution.


Westpac after Lloyds acquisition

13 October 2013 | Broker reports editor

LloydsBrokers are divided about whether Westpac is a good investment or not after the Lloyds acquisition. The implication seems to be, as brokers would say, to "buy on weakness". When analysts are divided, the pricing is probably close to correct.


Gas boom may be a fizzer

07 October 2013 | Staff reporter

BurntoutLNG is touted as Australia's next big boom. Woodside and Santos are big players. But developments in North America and Malaysia suggest that the competition is likely to become intense, suggesting the boom may not be as great as hoped.


Big trouble at Leighton

04 October 2013 | Broker reports editor

Agriculture Claims that Leighton Holding has been involved in bribery has resulted in the stock falling by a tenth. Brokers, however, are not overly troubled about the company, tending to sit on the fence. It is part of a continuing level of uncertainty about the company's future, however.


Are shares too expensive?

04 October 2013 |

expensiveInvesting in shares is all about timing. There is much discussion at the moment about whether or not low interest rates are fueling a property boom. But there is less discussion about the possibility that share prices are being boosted too much as investors pursue yield. Yet low interest rates traditionally drive higher equity prices; in traditional investing they are seen to be closely related.
