Macro Indicators

Numis Note (January 2019)
“In 2019, share prices will continue to be driven by sentiment towards capital values and discounts are likely to remain. In line with the direct market trends, we would expect those funds with a higher weighting towards Industrial and Alternative sectors to be able to deliver total returns ahead of IPF consensus, which is currently 3.2% for 2019. Those with a high Retail weighting are likely to remain out of favour with investors. Given the relatively high income yields on offer, the discounts to NAV are attractive for those looking to diversify income. However, it is difficult to see a major catalyst for discounts to narrow significantly in 2019, meaning investors will need to take a longer term view on total returns.”

“MIDAS SHARE TIPS: My top picks for a healthy (and wealthy) 2021
:

“…Looking ahead, the business has real potential. Not only is it in a robust sector but it has pioneered easy-to-use online leases. These run to just three pages, are written in plain English and cut out third-party agents so Stenprop can engage directly with its customers. Over time, Arenson is keen to extend this idea still further, offering customers all-in-one packages, including heating, plumbing, wi-fi and such like, for a fixed monthly price. The idea is revolutionary in the multi-let space but is increasingly common among modern rental and student accommodation and would put Stenprop in a class of its own.

Midas verdict: At £1.36, Stenprop offers good long-term value and decent income, even without its fancy new digital ideas. Add those in and the shares look even more attractive. Buy.”

Broker Coverage

Numis (House Broker – Jan 2019)
“In the meantime, we believe that [Stenprop] is well-resourced, both financially and from a management perspective, to continue to scale its UK operations and capture the strong market dynamics of a highly fragmented market. We believe its serviced industrial approach is an interesting differentiator. In the meantime, we believe the valuation looks attractive relative to other London SE listed Industrial peers, with the shares currently trading on an attractive discount and prospective yield of c.6.0% .”
