    2021 Market Outlook with WAM Leaders

    2021 Market Outlook with WAM Leaders

    Matt Haupt and John Ayoub, portfolio managers of the listed investment company WAM Leaders (WLE), join the EL&C Baillieu podcast to discuss the outlook for the Australian equity market in 2021.

    In a broad ranging discussion, Matt and John identify three key themes that could drive the market higher over the next 12 months:

    • The financials sector, particularly the major banks, driven by a return to credit growth, improving bad debt performance and upside risk to dividends. National Australia Bank (NAB) is their key stock pick.
    • The energy sector, driven by the global return-to-normal benefitting travel and industrial production. Santos (STO) is their key stock pick.
    • Increasing M&A among Australia’s largest listed companies, driven by improving economic conditions and strong balance sheets. Wesfarmers (WES) and Sonic Healthcare (SHL) are two companies they expect to be active.

    The conversation also includes insights on interest rates, pandemic beneficiaries such as Woolworths (WOW) and Coles (COL), and the outlook for discretionary retailers such as JB Hi-Fi (JBH) and Harvey Norman (HVN).

    Tune in to the final EL&C Baillieu podcast of the year for a positive view on the economy and investment markets.

    Afterpay and the BNPL sector with Tribeca

    Afterpay and the BNPL sector with Tribeca

    Afterpay (APT) is a leader and innovator in the payments sector as a buy-now-pay-later (BNPL) provider. The company’s share price is up 750% since March, reflecting the rise of online spending and the progress of its global expansion.

    But what is Afterpay’s business model and how does it earn revenue? What is the long term growth potential for the business? And what does increased competition mean for the sector?

    Jun Bei Liu, Portfolio Manager at Tribeca Investment Partners, joins the EL&C Baillieu podcast to discuss Afterpay and the BNPL sector, including:

    • Why Afterpay’s proposition to customers and merchants has been so successful;
    • Why Afterpay has consistently exceeded analyst expectations over the last few years;
    • How to scope the potential market opportunity for BNPL providers and approach stock valuation;
    • How Australia’s other leading BNLP provider, Zip Co (Z1P), differs from Afterpay in its business model; and
    • The risks to the sector, including competition and regulation.

    Tune in to hear Jun Bei explain why Afterpay and Zip Co are her key picks in the growing BNPL sector.

    The rise of online retailing with 1851 Capital

    The retail sector has been key beneficiary of the COVID-19 period in Australia, with record sales growth across many categories and record share prices for online specialists such as Temple & Webster (TPW) and Kogan (KGN).

    But how much of the shift to online is temporary? Is the recent performance sustainable, given fiscal stimulus is winding down? And what do recent trends mean for traditional bricks-and-mortar retailers?

    Chris Stott, Chief Investment Officer at 1851 Capital, joins the EL&C Baillieu podcast to discuss the outlook for the retail sector, including:

    • How the pandemic has accelerated the migration to online retailing by three to four years;
    • Why the outlook remains positive for retailers given reduced household debt and lower-for-longer interest rates;
    • Why valuations are starting to look elevated for Temple & Webster and Kogan; and
    • Key stock picks in the consumer sector, including Shaver Shop (SSG) and ARB Group (ARB).

    Tune in to hear Chris explain why Australian consumers are in good shape, despite the many challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic.
