Aristocrat’s B2 stock rating is its best since 2007, when it was rated A2. The company struggled with debt and delivered poor returns on equity between 2008 and 2012, however business performance has picked up over the last two years and improving profitability is expected to be sustained in 2015 and 2016.
ALL’s game-changing acquisition of US-listed Video Gaming Technologies (VGT) was completed on October 21. To put the US$1.3 billion VGT purchase in perspective, it effectively increased Aristocrat’s installed base in the North American gaming segment from 8,200 units to 28,400 units.
While the transaction has just been completed, if it were to make a full-year contribution in fiscal 2014 ALL’s management expects the acquisition would deliver earnings per share accretion of low to mid-teens on a pro-forma basis.

It’s not rocket science. If you invest in the US and the A$ falls 10 per cent against the greenback, you’ll receive an extra 10 per cent return when you eventually bring your money home. The same can also be said for those investing locally in stocks that derive a good chunk of their income from foreign earnings.
Established healthcare businesses, many of which have substantial operations outside Australia, like CSL Ltd, and consumer discretionary stocks benefit from a weaker Aussie dollar, due partly to segmented pricing which makes local retailers more competitive relative to overseas online stores.
As a rule of thumb, a 10 per cent drop in the A$ adds around 3 per cent to corporate earnings.
To determine the A$ impact on earnings, find out the percentage of profits generated from the company’s international operations and apply the change in currency to this proportion of profits.

The Australian dollar dipped below US92¢ on June 24 – its lowest point since September 2010 – and mounting projections that it could fall to around US85¢ within two years heralds mixed blessings for stocks on either side of the currency divide.
So if you subscribe to the view that a falling Australian dollar is (among other things) the inevitable by-product of waning foreign investor appetite for $A assets, you also need to ask what this means for the stocks you currently own, and how you can profit from it.
The correlation between the Australian dollar and share price movements – and interest rates, for that matter – has declined somewhat in recent years. Nevertheless, when it comes to identifying the most likely winners and losers within a falling Australian dollar environment, there are some useful guiding principles that you as an investor should understand.
