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.

The ever unpredictable Donald Trump started his presidential tenure on a controversial yet expected note as he signed a flurry of contentious executive orders in the first week of his presidency. In the week, President Trump lived up to his campaign issuing executive orders, as he continued to defy the traditional presidential image with populist, media blasting, and rebellious tactics. He abolished a string of decisions taken by his predecessor Barack Obama and stamped his own authority on American policies. A quick glance at the list of executive orders issued by President Donald Trump shows the near and far reaching effects of these orders.

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.

Breville Group (CODE:BRG), another Skaffold Top 5 Stock for 2015, released their 2015 full year results yesterday. Despite the 2015 figures being ever so slightly lower than last year, the share price jumped from $6.70 to close at $6.90.
Whilst year on year revenue, EBITDA and NPAT figures were between 1.2 per cent and 4.3 per cent lower than the previous corresponding period, second half figures outstripped their 2014 predecessors.

In the May 2014 edition of Money magazine we compared Australia’s Top 10 stocks by market capitalisation against their global counterparts. We’ve just completed the process again: Australia’s Top 10 vs the world. You’ll be able to read our insights in Money’s August 2015 edition, on sale from 6 August).
To test our theory, we created a hypothetical $100,000 portfolio equally invested across the nine global stocks identified in the May 2014 article.
Including unrealised gains, dividends and currency gains, the stocks returned 29.9 per cent. By comparison the All Ords Accumulation Index returned 7.8 per cent. Skaffold’s global stocks outperformed the Index by 22.1 per cent, or 6.3 per cent if you exclude currency gains. That’s not too bad.

Didn’t IAG hit the jackpot! What a coup to have Berkshire Hathaway on its share register.
Buffet is famously known as a man who only invests in companies with very specific characteristics. Whilst the average punter on the street may have a tough time filtering through the 1700-odd companies listed on the ASX to find Mr Buffett’s top picks, in just a few clicks Skaffold members can come up with a list of stocks that would make Mr Buffett proud.
Here is the filter criteria we think Mr Buffett would use to find outstanding investments in Australia if he used Skaffold.

When you consider Australia’s ageing population and how your portfolio can reap the benefits of baby boomers’ ballooning wealth, sometimes it pays to think outside the box. Baby boomers don’t need just housing and healthcare. Travel, wealth management, insurance and essential services are also high on their list of needs and wants.
Guided by Skaffold’s core principles of investing (solid balance sheet with minimal debt, strong profitability as measured by return on equity, rising earnings and strong cash flow) we logged into the online stock research tool to hunt for off-the-radar opportunities that appear set to benefit from a growing population of cashed-up retirees.
As you’ll discover, these stocks don’t rely solely on baby boomers for their success. Having diversity in their revenue streams, which is supported in part by a growing segment of the population, only helps strengthen their ability to expand their market share and produce rising earnings and profits year after year.

Australia’s top 10 stocks by market capitalisation – BHP Billiton (BHP), Commonwealth Bank (CBA), Rio Tinto (RIO), Westpac (WBC), ANZ, NAB, Telstra (TLS), Wesfarmers (WES), Woolworths (WOW) and CSL – are a solid group of companies that have, on balance, delivered strong returns for shareholders.
Are they positioned to continue delivering growth or do their global counterparts represent more attractive opportunities? We went inside Skaffold Global to find out.
Also consider this: you won’t find any global tech companies in the ASX 10. Pharmaceuticals, big oil and household products also fail to feature in our local market. To gain exposure to these global industries, you must expand your universe to the US and Europe.
