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).

Its reporting season! And you know what means... new Skaffold Scores.
Skaffold’s patent-pending A1 – C5 stock ratings interpret a company’s latest financial results. They update when a company releases their full year or interim results. In Australia, that typically occurs in August (full year) and February (interim).
Last night new financial results for three ASX-listed companies updated in Skaffold: education provider Navitas (CODE:NVT), micro cap medical diagnostics business Universal Biosensors (CODE:UBI) and solar technology business BluGlass (CODE:BLG).
As a result of these new results NVT’s Skaffold Score was upgraded from B2 to B1 (an improvement in performance) and BluGlass downgraded from A3 to A4.

Problems occur when the managers of your businesses overexpose their balance sheet to too much debt and don’t produce sufficient cash flow to support the interest payments. Failure to develop, and implement, a clear growth strategy can also unravel a highly geared balance sheet.
As crazy as it sounds, prior to the GFC some companies borrowed the funds necessary to pay their dividend. Suffice to say none remain in business today. Ten years ago management of ‘under-geared’ companies – those with little to no debt – were accused of running ‘lazy’ balance sheets. Today they’re lauded for good financial management.

There’s been a fair bit of action in Skaffold over the last week or so.
Whilst the bulk of reporting season is yet to kick in, analysts have been adjusting their current year earnings and profit forecasts, which impacts Skaffold’s FY14 intrinsic value estimates.
On the reporting season front, infrastructure provider Korvest (KOV) appears to have bucked the trend plaguing mining services businesses (they also operate in the construction industry, which helps).

IPOs have the potential to give your portfolio entry-level access to quality stocks well positioned for a profitable future.
Unfortunately the share market has no shortage of IPOs that bombed, and relatively recent newcomers like Collins Foods and Myer have both struggled to trade above their float price. If Boart Longyear is any proxy, there’s no guarantee these stocks will rally any time soon. Since floating in 2007 BLY’s share price has fallen more than 97%.
So don’t get sucked into buying overpriced and overspruiked companies wired to uninspiring sectors with questionable growth projections destined to lose you money.
