Protecting capital in an unforgiving market

Roughly three dozen stocks have recently downgraded their FY17 earnings outlook either explicitly or implicitly.

Notable misses like Vocus and Vita Group have been harshly punished by a market trading on full-ish valuations, reminding us that avoiding a loss is just as important as achieving a profit.

In our latest equity strategy research note 'Flagging risk and funding sources', our analysts flag stocks that are either; 1) vulnerable to disappointment before or at August results; 2) worthy of trimming on valuation grounds; or 3) worthy of selling or switching into preferred names outright.
