The end of reporting season

So  how was your reporting season ?

Australia has just finished its reporting season  and the action is just picking up. judging from the reporting season  we  will  possibly in for a helluva ride looking forward.

There was the minor hiccups affecting the global economy predictions like the Greece scare that is still fresh in our minds  and alive  and the impending doom of the  UL economy gloom ( when is that bubble going to be pricked) .Irrespective of all this  our reporting season  saw very good results  with the mining stocks poised to boom and the banks expanding into  overseas economies ( CBA and ANZ poised to explore growth potential in india  after acquiring their licenses) .

CommSec assessed 129 companies among the top 200 on the Australian Securities Exchange (ASX) and found that 113, or 88 per cent, were profitable for the six months to December 31, 2009. Sixty-seven per cent reported improved earnings and 60 per cent lifted earnings per share.

Australia's December quarter GDP came in slightly stronger than expected, with growth of 0.9% in the quarter which, combined with upwards revisions to growth in the previous two quarters, resulted in growth over the year to the December quarter of 2.7%.

Rockers of reporting season:

Coca-Cola Amatil pleased with its annual figure.

Woolworths, AGL and Harvey Norman impressed

Dazzlers were the supposedly generously valued net stocks such as Realestate.com. Wotif, Carsales and Melbourne IT

Shockers of reporting season:

Toll Holdings, which shocked the market last Thursday when it missed expectations by almost 15 per cent

Timber-lopper Gunns slipped on ice with a 99 per cent profit decline

Qantas,  and plumbing supplier Crane Group disappointed

Foster's Group lost its fizz

CommSec expects the SP/ASX 200 and the All Ordinaries indices to lift to 5,150 by mid-year and to 5,600 by the end of calendar 2010.

Recent earnings upgrades from big companies such as Commonwealth Bank and Qantas, as well as a strong fourth-quarter production report from miner Rio Tinto ahead of its full-year results in March, have added to the belief that the worst is behind us.

The AMP's chief economist, Dr Shane Oliver, says that as we approach the one year anniversary of the bear market low in shares (Australian shares bottomed on March 6, 2009 and US shares bottomed on March 9) things are vastly different; the economy is much stronger than expected and corporate profits are recovering solidly. Profits have now bottomed and with the economy picking up pace and costs well and truly under control profits are likely to rise by around 20% over the next year.

Australia's growth performance remains stellar compared to other advanced countries - Australia's growth of 2.7% through 2009 compares to just 0.1% growth in the US, a 0.4% contraction in Japan, and a 2.1% contraction in the euro-zone and a 3.3% contraction in the UK

In the United States, the current reporting season has seen about 80% of companies surprise on the upside. But don’t assume positive earnings will translate necessarily translate into a higher stock price.

  3. Hi,
    Seems like it’s a nice blog. So let us also add something useful in it. Trading in volatile market can be very fruitful also if we follow technical levels closely. It’s a common saying that stock market can change fortune in either way. But now the question is how to earn money from the Indian stock market.

    Traders are advised to strictly follow technical analyses and investors can follow fundamental analysis. Many analysts say it’s not wise to follow technical and fundamental analysis together. But we say what the problem is if one does so? As more knowledge will add up things will not have any negative impact.

    Nifty is on its peak now and is turning volatile. Investors are suggested to book long delivery positions soon. As after some more upmove we can see profit booking in the market soon. Investors are suggested to grab quality stocks at lower level again.

  6. Benchmarks pared intraday losses and slipped in the positive terrain as buying activity picked up in metals, FMCG and capital goods counters. Meanwhile auto, oil&gas and banks continued to remain sluggish.

    “Daily oscillators are giving mixed readings thus indicating a range bound market. Last two sessions suggest that going forward, unless the Nifty closes above the 50DMA, the uptrend would get arrested and the move would get restricted to a range trade between 5855-6030 in the short-term. www.puntercalls .com.
