Computershare is under Algo Engine sell conditions and has been forming a series of lower high patterns since topping at $20.50 in September last year.
We continue to view the market’s assessment of the future earnings growth picture, as misguided. The factors that have lead to the recovery in earnings are transitory and the 20X PE and 2.5% yield, makes CPU too rich for our liking.
Computershare had their investor day today and the market has reacted negatively to a softer earnings outlook.
We’ve been on the short-side of this trade following the lower high formation and the Algo Engine sell signal earlier this year. The CPU business is exposed to a number of structural headwinds and we expect further weakness in the share price.
