FNB Growth comment - Mar 09
The sell-off in global equity markets continued into the first quarter of 2009 as fears increased that the proposed rescue package for the global economy and the banking system would fail. A sustainable recovery in global growth will only take place once governments have succeeded in their attempts to recapitalize and remove the distressed assets from banks' balance sheets.
This negative sentiment washed over into our own market which saw the All Share Index give up 5.32% over the quarter. The returns for the market would have been significantly worse had the Gold Index not rallied strongly delivering a return of 22.56% for the quarter.
We have been using the extreme volatility seen in the market over the last few months to build positions in stocks which are trading at significant discounts to intrinsic value and which we feel are more than discounting all of the above gloomy news flow.
These stocks include the following: o African Rainbow Minerals, which is a diversified miner with a high quality portfolio of platinum, manganese, gold and coal assets. The business has a strong balance sheet which puts it in a good position to potentially acquire assets at the bottom of the cycle. We conservatively value the business at R170 per share. o Anglo American, whose share price has fallen 70% since its peak. Anglos is currently trading at a discount to its NAV of $17 per share. Its management was too aggressive in their acquisition strategy at the top of the commodity cycle and overpaid for some of their assets, resulting in an over geared balance sheet. We think this provides an opportunity to acquire a quality portfolio of assets at a discount to NAV. This value may take time to be reflected in the share price given the slew of expected bad news. o Barloworld's share price is down 73% since it unbundled PPC in July 2007. The current share price of R34.00 is trading at a deep discount to tangible NAV of R50.00 per share. The long term price-to-book of Barloworld excluding PPC is 1.5 times - this implies an intrinsic value of R75.00 per share.
The South African equity market like its global peers is beginning to reflect better value. We continue to search for companies that are not pricing in excessive returns and expectations over longer term. We continue to search for shares trading at discounts to intrinsic value and that we feel have a significant margin of safety.
In the financial sector we remain overweight Standard Bank, Investec, FirstRand, Old Mutual and Metropolitan. Overweights in the industrial sector include Richemont, Naspers, Netcare, and Steinhoff. Resource positions include Anglo American, African Rainbow Minerals and Sasol.
