Despite the “bad news” federal budget, the Master Builders Australia quarterly survey for June 2014 confirms that builder confidence is strong.
It doesn’t matter whether you’re a bricks-and-mortar investor backing the “great Australian dream” or a believer in equities as a wealth-generation mechanism, when it comes to the construction boom, everyone can benefit. A handful of exceptional businesses have substantial exposure to the construction sector. They’re not the builders, they’re the suppliers and manufacturers of goods and services essential to construction activity.

This is Retail Food Group’s tenth year as a listed company, and while its market capitalisation has grown substantially from a sub-$100 million entity to approximately $770 million, the group’s strategy for success remains unchanged. Yesterday (27 October 2014) the company announced it had acquired of Gloria Jeans Coffees. RFG has consistently demonstrated its ability to identify good value acquisitions that can add value to the existing business. Integration has for the best part been seamless and this is evidenced in the company’s sustained profit growth.

Once regarded as boring and fundamentally defensive, global healthcare stocks have re-emerged over the last few years as a powerhouse for future growth. Even though the S&P 500's healthcare sector is up over 20 per cent in the past year, it continues to offer more compelling entry points than its ASX-listed counterparts.
Given the strong run experienced by healthcare stocks globally, there are few – if any – absolute bargains left to pick off. Nevertheless, when you factor in their potential future upside, they still offer more compelling valuation propositions than their Aussie healthcare stocks. We found 9 future top performers in Skaffold Global.

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.
