Blackwall Ltd (ASX:BWF) FY 2019 Results And Initiation Report

Blackwall Ltd (ASX:BWF) FY 2019 Results And Initiation Report

BlackWall Ltd (ASX:BWF) is the management company for BlackWall Property Trust (ASX:BWR) and various other private property syndicates. The company is a turnaround specialist, buying under-occupied or over-leveraged properties and improving their fortunes via capital restructuring, change of use or investment in fixtures and fittings. Management is long-term focused and seeks to exit an investment only when it can no longer grow rent, and the after tax return from a sale exceeds expected future income from continuing to hold. In addition to its asset management activities, BWF also owns WOTSO which provides flexible workspace mainly to sole traders and startups. The majority of BWR’s properties house a WOTSO operation and around half of all WOTSO operations are located in BWR premises. As you can see, the two entities are inextricably linked and so a proper analysis of BWF also requires an examination of BWR.

It has been a busy several months since we last checked in on Australian digital audio networking technology company Audinate (ASX:AD8) following the release of its 1H19 results in February (coverage here). Since then the share price nearly doubled (reaching an all-time high of $8.66 in mid-June) before trading back to the low-$6 mark briefly last month before recovering back above $7. The share price fell 6% today in response to the company’s FY19 results and is now 20% below its all-time high – more on that later, but first a re-cap of developments since our last report.

Pro Medicus (ASX:PME) FY 2019 Results Analysis: Record Profit Yet Again

Pro Medicus (ASX:PME) Posts Record Results In FY 2019

Yesterday radiology imaging company Pro Medicus (ASX:PME) reported revenue of $50.1 million for the full year, along with profit of $19.1 million, an increase of over 91% on last year. When I reported on the half year results, I noted that it would be hard for the company to grow half on half, since last half was such a strong half. I also expressed my hesitancy about the share price. It turns out I was too conservative, as the stock has gained well over 100% in the intervening period, to close above $30.50 on the day of the results.

Will Someone Buy Pro Medicus (ASX:PME) At Any Price?

Will Someone Buy Pro Medicus (ASX:PME) At Any Price?

I'm on record as saying I think Pro Medicus is my favourite stock on the ASX. But the stellar share price run from around $1 five years ago to $33 today is truly stupendous. When we covered its results less than a year ago, we did not predict it would gain more than 200% in just one year.
