Highlights

  • Coronation has a decent record of growing assets under management (AUM) over the past 17 years; however, AUM growth has been subdued over the past seven years, with funds up only 1.14% since September 2014.
  • This shows that the group has been heavily impacted by the subdued local economic environment, which has translated into share price underperformance relative to the benchmark over the past five years (Coronation down 7.7% versus Capped SWIX up 11.1%).
  • Based on the valuations and investment performance, we feel that the share is fairly valued and recommend a neutral exposure to Coronation.
  • For more information about this counter, please contact your PSG Wealth adviser.


company logo

Highlights

  • The counter does not share the high compounding and growth characteristics that we prefer for select portfolios.
  • It seems attractively priced on a forward P:E of 4.0 times, a 37.6% discount to its historical average, and a 69.9% discount to its peers compared with its 55% historical discount.
  • We will continue to monitor the market with the intension to exit the position at a price closer to fair value.
  • For more information about this counter, please contact your PSG Wealth adviser.


company logo

Highlights

  • The company estimates that it needs only around 40% of its non-risk-adjusted projected pipeline revenue to accomplish its 6% annual growth objective, which provides some comfort even if there are clinical trial setbacks. However, with another major patent expiration cycle around FY25, we see Pfizer's share upside tied to pipeline success.
  • Several early trials will guide to the extent to which it needs to replenish its pipeline with mergers and acquisitions.
  • On a forward P:E basis, the share now trades at 15.1 times, a 13.3% premium to its historical average, and a 16.9% premium to its FactSet peers.
  • At current prices, we feel the share is fairly valued.
