This week saw a lot more action on the reporting season calendar. Whilst there were a few pleasing performances there were few gold medals. The only company to ascend the podium to A1 status was Tamawood, a designer and builder of residential homes. Tamawood is a small company of $90 million market cap and no analyst coverage. It has generated good profit growth over the last few years however the cash funding falls a bit short, resulting in a funding deficit.

Greg Canavan believes Australia’s banking sector will feel the biggest brunt from China’s slowing economy. Looking at Australia’s largest bank, Commonwealth Bank, Greg said the biggest risk is around CBA’s ability to maintain its high dividend. A slowdown in revenue growth or an increase in bad debts will ultimately impact dividends paid by Australia’s Big 4 banks.
Chris Batchelor agreed with Greg, adding that Australia’s mining sector will continue to suffer, along with companies selling their goods and services into China. Chris talks through the impact of China on BHP, Australia’s largest mining stock.

While there are times when the ASX offers an impressive list of high-performing growth stocks, limiting yourself during times when local growth is slowing can detract from the long-term performance of your portfolio. So if you prefer to stick with the big end of town and don’t want to limit yourself to bank and mining stocks, then it’s time to think global.
This month we jumped into Skaffold Global – there are around 2000 stocks to choose from – and uncovered a list of the largest stocks in the same sectors as our top 10: banks, mining, telecommunications, retail and biotechnology.
In May 2014 we did the same comparison: Australia’s top 10 stocks versus the world. Had you invested $100,000 equally across the nine global stocks identified, you’d be sitting on a capital gain of $10,500 and received $2,700 in dividends. That’s a return of 13 per cent. Add the benefits of currency movements and your profit, including dividends, rises to $30,000, or a 30 per cent gain on your initial investment. Over the same period the S&P/All Ordinaries Accumulation Index returned 7.8 per cent.
