New opportunities were thin on the ground this week, with the majority of companies to report experiencing deteriorating Skaffold Scores. Many stocks also continue to trade at large premiums to Skaffold’s intrinsic value estimates.
After 6 years of membership in Skaffold’s premium group of companies, Domino’s Pizza Enterprises (DMP) has declined to B3.
This is a great example of Skaffold’s ability to demystify company results and present the facts of the case, so to speak.

With reporting season now complete (except for the very small mining companies), let’s take a look at what opportunities Skaffold identified over the last four weeks, and how those stocks have performed.
The three standout stocks this reporting season, which we wrote about in blog posts and weekly reporting season update emails, are Titan Energy Services (TTN), RCR Tomilson (RCR) and MGM Wireless (MWR). TTN’s share price is up 32%, RCR 19% and MGM Wireless 37%.
As a wrap up to a successful reporting season, here’s a summary of the stocks that came to our attention over the past month. Aside from TTN, RCR and MWR, at the time of initial writing all the stocks listed below were trading at a premium to Skaffold’s intrinsic value estimate.

Since April 2011 Newcrest Mining (NCM) shareholders have been punished with a falling share price that has declined from more than $42.50 to $9.30. NCM released its full year results on 12 August. Revenues decreased 15% and the company reported Net Profit After Taxes of $5.78 billion. These poor results and less than impressive business performance resulted in NCM’s Skaffold’s Score falling from B3 to C4. A company rated C4 is not considered investment grade by Skaffold.
Financial results for Cochlear (COH), JB Hi-Fi (JBH), Tabcorp (TAH) and Coffey International (COF) are now available in Skaffold.

The A$150 billion scaling back of expansion plans by Australian resources projects over the past year is having a devastating impact on mining services companies, and government projections suggest the mood of austerity sweeping the sector is here to stay. Official data released this week by government commodities forecaster, the Bureau of Resources and Energy Economics (BREE), suggests that investment in Australian resources projects could tumble by around 75 per cent over the next five years if the big miners continue to slash spending on new projects and expansions.
This outcome would see committed investment on resource projects fall from A$268 billion in 2012 to A$25 billion in 2018. BREE attributes much of this decline to too few high-value projects progressing through the investment pipeline to offset the completion of the LNG projects currently under construction. According to BREE’s research, austerity measures by mining heavyweight BHP Billiton (BHP) will see its spending fall by $4 billion over the next year, while rival Rio Tinto (RIO) has savings of $5 billion in its sights by late 2014.
What does this mean for mining services businesses?
