Highlights

  • We believe BTI could consistently grow earnings over the long-term despite volume declines in the combustible segment.
  • We feel that medium-term earnings is likely to be supported by lower investments in NGP's as the product matures and improves profitability as it ramps up.
  • Regardless of a growth outlook that mirrors the broader staple market, the group is trading at a significant discount to staple counters.
  • On a forward PE basis, the group is trading at a 38.0% discount to its long-term average of 12.6 times and a 35.9% discount to its FactSet peers.

Highlights

  • Apple’s valuation has increased since our last report and seems stretched at current levels, trading at a premium to its peers and its historical average.
  • Although Apple has sound cash generation and a solid balance sheet, we expect it to come under pressure as global demand for iPhone and wearables weaken as markets become increasingly saturated.
  • As the installed base matures, we expect revenue from services to slow while revenue from other product divisions should normalise after the Covid-19 surge.
  • We maintain our underweight recommendation in the counter.
  • For more information about this counter, please contact your PSG Wealth adviser.

Highlights

  • The balance sheet of LVMH remains strong, which is essential to protect the equity value in the current environment.
  • The group is trading at a forward PE of approximately 25 times, which is 17.6% above its five-year average.
  • Although there is still some uncertainty pertaining to the pandemic, we believe the group is well-positioned for a reopening of the economy if the rollout of vaccines is successful.
  • As a result, we maintain our neutral view on the counter.
