Long a staple of many Australian portfolios and super funds, the ‘Big Australian’ has significantly underperformed the ASX200 over the last few years. Culminating in an annus horribilis in 2015 that saw shareholder value fall by nearly half, BHP’s share price has since staged a strong recovery, and is currently trading around the $23-24 mark after climbing out of the $14 depths it reached in early 2016. Similarly, its 2017 dividend has been announced as 52c/share, comparing favourably with 2016’s disappointing 22c payout. Despite the near 100% rise in 2016, BHP has still significantly underperformed the broader SP/ASX200 index over the last few years.

Having benefitted from an improving construction industry, top stock CWP delivered 6% full year 2013 net profit after tax (NPAT) growth within a subdued year for the sector when most stocks experienced significant earnings declines. In the year to 30 June 2013 CWP’s share price increased 42%, and has soared 80% for the calendar year, which is great if you own the stock - you’ve done remarkably well.
