Reece – FY21

Reece is now under Algo Engine buy conditions.

The FY21 result highlighted strong sales trends in both Australia and
the US, however, costs in the US dampened the operating profit.

The market is looking for 10% EPS growth into FY22 and FY23 which places REH on 30X forward earnings and 1% dividend yield.

Zip – Earnings Review

Zip Co is under Algo Engine buy conditions.

Revenue was up 150% to $403m and the pre-tax loss -$718m.

Zip said its cash earnings before tax, depreciation and amortisation loss was $22.9 million, which missed consensus expectations for positive earnings of between $8 million and $9 million.

Its total reported loss of $653 million was just below the total amount of capital that Zip raised over the year to support its global growth.

We’re watching ZIP with a great deal of interest but remain cautious on the sector trends with regards to increasing bad debts.
