One to Buy
Old Mutual – Value to be unlocked as unbundling is on the horizon
On Friday, Old Mutual put out interim results, which indicated a strong performance. Headline earnings increased 46% to 9 pence. Net client cash flows were up 53%. Unlocking value through the listing of Nedbank along with a simplified OM Plc is near, expect an unbundling mid-2018. On a forward PE of 9.3 and forward dividend yield of 3.9% we see value. Buy below R33.50
One to Sell
Pioneer Foods – Falling Maize and Raisin prices hit earnings
Pioneer released a trading update last week that has signaled some headwinds for the near to medium term. Earnings and sales volumes will be lower than analyst’s expectations. The share price is down over 7% since the release but we expect further downside from here. Next published earnings report will come out in November. Sell above R132.50
Shorter Term Ideas
  • Standard Bank: Showing a profit already. Target R155.00, place stop loss at R169.00.
  • Sasol: Our Sell call is in the money, place a stop loss at R410 as results are due next week.
  • USD/ZAR: trading well, after closing our short at R13,18 for a small profit before the vote – we went short again at R13.46. Look for R13,10 for another tidy gain.
  • Vodacom: Rally losing momentum, still over bought. Maintain stop loss at R190.00.
  • Sibanye Gold: Raise stop loss to R17.50 to lock in a 16.67% gain, keep target price at R24.50.
Long Term Ideas
  • AECI: At the initial buy price. Buy below R105.00.
  • MTN: Remaining steady around R120 – Hold.
  • Coronation: At support, hold for next leg higher. Keep stop loss at R66 to lock in profit.
  • Glencore: Rally intact, remain long.
  • Wescoal: Long term buy. Add below R2.15.
  • Famous Brands: A push above R130 is on the cards – accumulate below R125.
  • Naspers: Tencent results due Wednesday. Hold.
  • MediClinic: Moving higher - Hold.
  • Richemont: Up 8.33% on the trade, place stop loss at R112 to lock in gains.
