Happy to Buy today

Ramsay Health Care (RHC) - Strong sustainable growth

FY15 underlying results were above expectations, underpinned by broad divisional performance, operating leverage and strong cashflow generation. While acknowleding cost pressures and affordability issues, we view guidance as conservative, as growth drivers remain intact, capacity expansion/efficacy gains remain supportive, with the strategic acquisition of Générale de Santé expected to realise synergies. We retain our Add recommendation.

RCG Corporation (RCG) - It's only the beginning

RCG's result stole the show, with the recently acquired Accent business delivering 37% like-for-like sales growth in the first seven weeks of FY15. TAF and RCG brands have also started the year nicely. Management's guidance will prove highly conservative if AGL comp sales continue anywhere near current rates. We see strong earnings upside in FY16 and cost synergies likely in FY17. We retain our Add recommendation.

IPH Limited (IPH) - Asian earnings growing strongly

A very strong FY15 result not only supported by FX movements but better performance in both Australia and Asia. IPH remains a stock which will continue to deliver low double digit organic growth + FX benefits + acquisitions. As such, in our view it justifies its current multiple and we maintain our Add recommendation.
