12 years ago BigAir Group (BGL) was a communications ”plumbing business”- laying pipes and cables - catering to the residential market, said CEO Jason Ashton at the Microequities conference in Sydney on 1 July.
Over time BGL has morphed into a full service provider for business communications.
Four years ago BGL embarked on an aggressive merger and acquisition strategy. The plan? Acquire, integrate, then cross-sell to BigAir’s other companies/clients.
They have completed nine acquisitions over the last four years. Over the same period BGL’s Skaffold business performance score has risen from 4 to 2. Today BGL achieves Skaffold second-highest rating for balance sheet quality and business performance, A2.
There must be a lot to like about BGL because not a single Skaffold member has voted against it – 18 ‘Likes, 0 ‘Dislikes’. What’s your view on BGL? It’s trading at a pretty hefty premium to Skaffold’s intrinsic value forecast. Buy sell or hold? Or do nothing until the full year results are released next month?

If Domino’s Pizza Enterprise’s (DMP) result last week proves anything to investors it’s the danger of first impressions, and while they arguably count, they’re not always as good as they appear. Despite being slightly short of market consensus forecasts, DMP's share price jumped over 12% following headline reports of its 38.8% increase in interim underlying net profit after tax (NPAT) of $20.2 million, plus upbeat commentary around new store roll-out plans.
After one-off costs of $2.7 million, Domino’s bottom line net profit was up 28.2% to $18.6 million. But once Skaffold’s automated engine sufficiently scratched behind the top-line numbers, the stock research tool had cause to downgrade it from an A2 to a B3 rating, and as such the pizza retailer is not currently regarded as an investment grade stock - which is exclusive to A1, A2, B1 and B2-rated stocks.
