It’s reporting season, that time of year when Skaffold re-rates company fundamentals. New companies will rise to A1, and some top-rated companies will fall from grace.
Skaffold’s free reporting season calendar is your go-to place for ASX company reporting dates.
G.U.D. Holdings, Downer EDI and Tabcorp Holdings kick off the season this week. The bulk of companies will report in February.
Check out Skaffold’s 2017 Interim Reporting Season Calendar now and find out when your companies are scheduled to report.

As indicated by Skaffold, Downer EDI (CODE:DOW) grew earnings per share by approximately 40 per cent between 2011 and 2014. While the company is rated A3 based on its most recent financial results, declining earnings per share forecasts over the coming three years are its most significant drawback.
Downer’s shares fell from approximately $5.00 to less than $4.00 in the recent sell-off before closing at $4.05 on 17 October. Is DOW a stock to target whilst market conditions are depressed?

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.

Inspired by the success of the recent float of fertility clinic operator Virtus Health (VRT), another dozen floats worth around $3.7 billion are expected to come to market between now and year’s end. If the calibre of companies in the float pipeline is anything to go by, this offers you a rare ground-floor entry into quality stocks on the cusp of a promising growth trajectory.
The share market has no shortage of IPOs that bombed, and relatively recent newcomers like Collins Foods (CKF) and Myer (MYR) have both struggled to trade above their float price.
To avoid future disasters you need to pressure-test your argument for IPOs against key performance criteria. Skaffold’s IPO tips should help you unearth the next Flight Centre (FLT) and avoid the buying the next Myer (MYR).

After a couple of weeks of relatively few new opportunities appearing in Skaffold, the flood gates have finally opened!
Vita Life Sciences (VSC) is the latest company to rise to A1 (from C2 no less!). The number of companies rated A2 was boosted overnight, to 83. Twenty-First Century Fox (FOX), Medusa Mining (MML) and Reverse Corp (REF) were a handful of companies that rose from A3 to A2.

With value plays on the Australian share market becoming decidedly harder to find, there’s never been a more compelling argument for dipping your toes into global equity markets offering greater potential for growth, plus portfolio exposure to a broader range of class-leading businesses.
Given the tailwind courtesy of A$ weakness and the strength of its economic recovery, the US offers greater opportunity for growth than most of its global counterparts.
Research conducted by Skaffold earlier this year suggests that active share market investors were more confident in the performance of offshore markets over the next 12 months than the ASX. Skaffold found that over half (50.4% of those surveyed) were interested in increasing their investments in international shares.
So exactly how do you invest in global stocks to capitalise on the growth and diversification they offer?

Comparing the value of the Australian share market as a whole with global indices can be a dangerous and futile exercise. After all, most investors are individual stock-pickers not index huggers. However, once you recognise exactly how top-heavy the ASX is compared to the US and other global markets, you’ll sit up and take notice when analysts have concerns over valuations.
