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.”

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% .”
