Highlights

  • We recommend an overweight position for N91 LN, Click here to read the full report on our secure site or log in to myBase.
  • Sixty per cent of group earnings comes from outside of SA, providing protection against idiosyncratic risks but does expose investors to exchange rate translation risks.
  • On a P/E basis, we estimate that the group is trading slightly ahead of its European peers and at a slight discount to Schroders, the only peer with a similar emerging market (EM) presence.
  • The group is trading at the lower end of its European peers in terms of market capital to assets under management (AUM).
  • Given its historically strong net client cash flow (NCCF), we feel the current valuation multiples do not fully capture the fundamentals of the group.

Highlights

  • We recommend an underweight position for BAM US, Click here to read the full report on our secure site or log in to myBase.
  • The group’s plan to significantly develop retail property and land comes at a time where the real estate sector has seen significant downside following the spread of COVID-19 as businesses are forced to close their doors and people to stay inside.
  • Real estate constitutes about 25% of our intrinsic value and around 35% of group operating income; thus, a slowdown in real estate will have a material impact on earnings for the group.
  • The current price appears undervalued; however, we feel that that the near-term downside risks from COVID-19 on the real estate operations outweigh any potential near-term rerating towards the implied value per share.

Highlights

  • We recommend a neutral position for both Naspers and Prosus. Click here to read the full report on our secure site or log in to myBase.
  • Despite the regulatory and political risks that come with investing in Chinese stocks, we acknowledge that, to a large extent, Prosus and Naspers provide an alternative risk and reward profile due to the exposure to structural growth trends, which are not available through alternative local counters.
  • Naspers and Prosus trade at discounts of 23% and 13% respectively.
  • Given that management is determined to reduce the discounts over time, we suspect there will eventually be large value unlock for shareholders.
  • The share price for both Naspers and Prosus moves with a fairly high correlation to the USD/ZAR exchange rate.
