SARB cuts key rate for first time in five years
The South African Reserve Bank (SARB), for the first time in five years, lowered its benchmark repo rate by 25 bps to 6.75% in 4-6 votes, citing concerns about the country’s growth outlook. Inflation data improved in June, while South Africa’s growth prospects deteriorated further following the GDP contraction in the first quarter of the year.

If you missed out on your copy of Money magazine this month, here are the best bits from Skaffold’s piece on the Top 50 and Top 5 Stocks for 2015.
Had you initially invested $50,000 and bought and sold the top-rated stocks each year since 2012, you’d be sitting on a portfolio worth just over $87,000. A remarkable result in just three years!
Each year’s five-stock portfolio was chosen using Skaffold’s digital stock research tool – embraced by thousands of private and professional investors – whose methodical approach isn’t influenced by opinion or bias.

In February 2012 Skaffold graced the cover of Money magazine with our Top 5 and Top 50 stocks for 2012. Money readers loved it, and we have been privileged enough to share our Top 5 share tips each year since.
In 2012 we hypothetically invested $50,000 across the Top 5 stocks. In early 2013 we sold the 2012 stocks and reinvested the gains, including the $2,000-odd we received in dividends, into the 2013 stocks. We did the same thing in early 2014.
Had you followed this process, which by the way is methodical and not influenced by human opinion or bias, you’d be sitting on a portfolio worth just under $84,000.
Since inception the process has returned 75 per cent, or 77 per cent if you include franking. Annually, that’s a return of 22 per cent. Mr Warren Buffett would be proud.

In this final post of a three part series, financial journalist Trevor Hoey talks about how he analyses market opportunities and what he looks out for. He also shares his strengths and weaknesses and what lessons he has learnt about investing and what he looks out for in CEO statements. He mentions how to look at sectors and the different things to consider when looking at opportunities in a particular sector.

With the low growth environment likely to continue for some time, investors chasing double-digit growth need to look beyond cyclicals wired to the struggling Australian economy, and refocus on sectors displaying what are known as ‘secular growth opportunities’. For those unfamiliar with the term, ‘secular’ refers to companies with growth upside that’s less reliant on macroeconomic drivers and more hitched to company or sector-specific dynamics.

In 2012 and again in 2013 we picked a portfolio of five top Aussie stocks for Money magazine.
Looking over the portfolios today, there have been hits and misses. But that’s part of investing. Real estate is the same. Not every house/apartment/commercial property goes up in ‘value’.
That’s why we think that 7 out of 10 stock picks, with portfolio returns of 23 per cent and 38 per cent ain’t too bad.

It’s not rocket science. If you invest in the US and the A$ falls 10 per cent against the greenback, you’ll receive an extra 10 per cent return when you eventually bring your money home. The same can also be said for those investing locally in stocks that derive a good chunk of their income from foreign earnings.
Established healthcare businesses, many of which have substantial operations outside Australia, like CSL Ltd, and consumer discretionary stocks benefit from a weaker Aussie dollar, due partly to segmented pricing which makes local retailers more competitive relative to overseas online stores.
As a rule of thumb, a 10 per cent drop in the A$ adds around 3 per cent to corporate earnings.
To determine the A$ impact on earnings, find out the percentage of profits generated from the company’s international operations and apply the change in currency to this proportion of profits.

Given the uncertainty over earnings growth in 2014/15, you understandably don’t want to pay any more than you need to for top stocks. But there are occasions when you shouldn’t be deterred from paying close to or indeed above intrinsic value (IV) for quality companies on a strong growth trajectory.
As a value investor, sometimes you’re better off buying a quality business with plenty of growth in front of it at a (slight) premium to its intrinsic value than trying to save money on a bad stock that’s languishing.

Now that the excitement of the reporting season has settled down and analysts have digested financial reports, we take a look inside Skaffold to discover well-positioned, top-quality stocks.
Of the 1767 ASX-listed stocks available for analysis in Skaffold, 163 achieve Skaffold’s preferred scores of A1, A2, B1 and B2. So less than 10 per cent are considered premium investment grade by Skaffold and analysis beyond top-line numbers is critical.
The services sector offers the largest choice of top-quality growth stocks, followed by technology, finance and capital goods.
