The last 12 months have been one crazy ride on the markets as the mood has swung wildly from optimism to pessimism and back again. Over the last 12 months the S&P/ASX 300 has fallen 3.4%, but in February it was down 16%, and has since then rallied 15% to today’s levels.

In Skaffold’s November 2015 webinar we highlighted some of the themes and sectors that were ripe for growth in 2016. One of those was the education sector, which was set to benefit from the strengthening middle class in China and their increased focus on discretionary spending as well as the lower level of the currency.
The stock we highlighted within the education sector was Navitas (CODE:NVT).

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.

If you take the 170-odd stocks that Skaffold currents rates as investment grade (A1, A2, B1 and B2) and then filter those with both a positive safety margin – trading at a discount to their intrinsic value – that are also forecast to grow their intrinsic value, we’re left with only a handful of stock to invest in. All things considered, these are the best quality companies that value investors could justifiably contemplate buying at current levels.
However, it’s important to remember that the share market is a constantly moving feast, and that companies can move in and out of investment grade status, as measured by the Skaffold Score, each reporting season due to any number of macro influences and company specific dynamics.
So with that in mind, we decided to go in search of companies that could potentially be knocking on the door of investment grade status if their fortunes continue to improve.

Despite popular belief, debt is by no means a dirty word when it comes to running a business. Indeed some businesses effectively utilise debt to accelerate growth.
But if the managers of your businesses don’t effectively manage the level of borrowings, they can easily undermine the overall value of your share investment portfolio.
Figuring out whether a company is self-funded or relies on external funding (a la debt) - after factoring in its operations, investments and financing - isn’t a simple exercise. Here are 4 key financial ratios you can use to understand if a business is self-funding and how it funds it dividends.

There’s no better insight into what is left for you as a shareholder in a listed business once it has paid all its bills than an analysis of its often overlooked cash flow.
When it comes to assessing the investment quality of a company’s cash flow, you should be attracted to those with sufficient money in the bank to fund their ongoing operations and produce a funding surplus in the next financial year.
While every business operates to generate cash, you should steer clear of stocks with a funding gap, recommends Skaffold stock market software.

With reporting season now complete (except for the very small mining companies), let’s take a look at what opportunities Skaffold identified over the last four weeks, and how those stocks have performed.
The three standout stocks this reporting season, which we wrote about in blog posts and weekly reporting season update emails, are Titan Energy Services (TTN), RCR Tomilson (RCR) and MGM Wireless (MWR). TTN’s share price is up 32%, RCR 19% and MGM Wireless 37%.
As a wrap up to a successful reporting season, here’s a summary of the stocks that came to our attention over the past month. Aside from TTN, RCR and MWR, at the time of initial writing all the stocks listed below were trading at a premium to Skaffold’s intrinsic value estimate.
In order of appearance, and with previously published comments, this year’s interesting stocks were…

Full year results for more than 20 companies have now updated in Skaffold. Transurban Group (TCL) sustained its less than impressive Skaffold Score for business quality and performance whilst Education provider Navitas (NVT) generated a return on equity of 31.5% and retained its A2 Skaffold Score.
Yesterday Downer EDI (DOW), Cochlear (COH), Iress (IRE) and Credit Corp (CCP) released their latest financial results.
Iress confirmed its acquisition of UK financial planning software company Avelo for a cash purchase price of £210 million (equivalent to AUD $360 million). Like its A1 peers, the market has already aware of IRE’s impressive performance. The share price is trading at a 50% premium to Skaffold’s intrinsic value estimate of just under $4.00. Is IRE another stock for the watch list should a market correction occur?
