Breaking News-

Millennials are leading the way into a new generation of investing

Yahoo Finance 3-11-21

The everything rally of the last several months may be getting a lift from an unexpected source: federal stimulus money.

A new Yahoo Finance–Harris poll finds that 9% of people expecting to get a $1,400 stimulus check plan to invest some of the money in traditional assets such as stocks, while 7% plan to use the money to buy cryptocurrencies such as bitcoin.

Young investors are even more willing to gamble. Among 18- to 24-year-olds, 19% plan to put stimulus money into traditional investments, and 10% plan to buy cryptocurrencies with the cash. The numbers are higher still for millennials aged 25 to 40: 20% are putting stimulus money into traditional investments and 15% are buying crypto. Above the age of 40, the portion planning to use the money for each type of investment drops to single digits. The numbers come from a survey of 1,052 U.S. adults conducted March 12–15.

GDH City Site Visit & Update

GDH City Site Visit & Updates.  We were recently able to arrange a site visit of GDH City to get an update on the project, which continues to move on schedule (see pictures on pages 2 and 3).  Additionally, we were told the customer interest in the apartments on the Northwest Land continues to remain strong.  GDL has also made a number of announcements regarding the selection of contractors for different GDH City projects recently.  Earlier this month, it announced contractor agreements for the Northern Land, which is still scheduled to be completed in the second half of 2022.  It retained China Construction Dongfang to complete the Office Tower Fitting-Out Work at the Northern Land by January 31, 2022 at a cost of just under RMB 80,000,000.  It also disclosed it retained China Construction Shenzhen to complete the Commercial Shopping Fitting-Out Work on the Northern Land by June 30, 2021 at a cost of nearly RMB 62,000,000.  Last month, it announced the selection of China Railway Tunnel Group [HK: 390] to complete the tunnel pedestrian link to the subway at the Southern Land, which is scheduled to be completed by July 6, 2021 at a total cost of roughly RMB 79,000,000.

RMB400,000,000 Factoring Agreement.  Last week, GDL announced it entered into a RMB400,000,000 factoring agreement with Foshan Yuehai.  The factoring service charge will be 6.5%, making it a relatively inexpensive source of cash for continued project development.  The agreement will run through the end of 2021.

Year-End Results.  GDL will hold a Board meeting on Friday, March 26 to approve the 2020 annual results.  We expect the results to be released shortly thereafter.

Model Update.  We made no changes to our model.

Maintaining Rating & Target.  The site visit was positive and the announced contract terms have largely fallen inline with our estimates.  With no changes to our model we are reiterating our Buy rating and HK$5.00 target price on Guangdong Land Holdings.  Our target price is based on our DCF model that covers GDL’s entire project portfolio, discounted at 6.5%.

Ideenion Acquisition EGM set

Ideenion Acquisition Update.  AMFG released the Circular for the Ideenion acquisition and announced it is holding an Extraordinary General Meeting on January 29 at 11am in Science Park to vote on the acquisition.  A few key notes from the Circular include that prior to COVID, Ideenion was generating roughly HK$157.6 million in Revenue and HK$37.9 million in Net Profit per year.  Despite being impacted by COVID, it has a pipeline of projects worth roughly €24,450,000 (HK$233,000,000), as well as being in final negotiations with an emerging market client for a fuel cell vehicle and an EV setup with a total project value of €49,000,000 (HK$467,000,000), which gives the vendors confidence in the profit targets being reached for the contingent cash and share issuances.  The independent valuer found a current valuation of €22,000,000.  AMFG is paying €15,000,000 in cash at closing, plus another €1,400,000 in cash and €5,600,000 in shares annually upon meeting profit targets in each of 2021, 2022 and 2023.  All of the cash in Ideenion will be paid out to the Vendors prior to closing with the exception of €1,500,000.  We again note, the potential share issuance is based on Ideenion reaching profit milestones over a three year period with shares being issued at the higher of HK$0.52 or the three-month daily average.  

H2:20 Results.  AMFG reported second half 2020 results (ending September 30) with Revenue of HK$100.8 million, down significantly due to the impact of COVID.  No Apollo IE hypercars were delivered in the period, although one was delivered prior to the end of the calendar year.  Auto engineering services Revenue was just HK$2.6 million as many projects were put on hold.  All of the legacy businesses were hit hard by COVID, as well as Property Investment due to Shenyang expropriating property that the Company owned, which resulted in Other Gains, Net of HK$255.9 million and HK$281.2 million of Land Appreciation Tax in the period; AMFG turned a profit on the building as it had previously been marked up.  Net Loss for the period was HK$141.8 million, or HK$1.98 cents per share.

Model Update.  The model continues to be subject to significant fluctuations due to COVID, however it will get a bit of stability with the closing of the Ideenion acquisition and the world creeping back to normalcy with global vaccine distribution underway.  One Apollo IE was delivered before the end of calendar Q4, marking the third such delivery; two were delivered prior to the completion of the acquisition.  We expect a total of four to six IE’s to be delivered over the course of fiscal 2021, with the remainder falling in fiscal 2022.  The launch of the next Apollo model has been pushed back, and will now be launched later this year.  The DeTomaso P72 has been delayed as well, with deliveries now expected in 2022, however AMFG should begin receiving its license fee on each car produced starting later this year.  We continue to expect the auto products and services business to grow quickly as the world exits COVID and ramp significantly starting in 2022 as a number of the previously discussed products roll out to market.  As a result of these changes, our estimated Revenue and Net Profit numbers for fiscal 2021 and 2022 have contracted.

Retirement of Non-Executive Director.  On December 30, Co-Chairman Zhang Jinbing notified the Board he would not seek re-election to the Board due to his other business commitments.  Mr. Zhang was previously Chairman prior to the change in direction of AMFG in late 2016.

Maintaining Rating & Target.  Getting the Ideenion deal done is an important step for AMFG as it broadens the Company’s reach and tier one customer base.  We continue to believe AMFG is ideally positioned for the changing auto industry with its engineering capabilities and product offerings.  As such, we are reiterating our Buy rating and HK$1.50 target price on Apollo Future Mobility Group.  Our target price is based on a P/E multiple of 25 times our fiscal 2022 Diluted EPS estimate of HK$5.64 cents.

ValuEngine Weekly Report
By: Herb Blank
03/08/2021 What’s in Your Core?

If you are an investor with less than $1 billion to invest and a holding horizon of more than 3 months, do NOT buy SPY to access exposure to the S&P 500.  This is true even though SPY has the most assets under management and the highest average trading volume by far. The simple fact is that there are more advantageous alternatives to gain access to US market exposure.  Read on for the numbers and detailed discussion on better alternatives.

The overall strategy most institutions and financial advisors employ for equity allocation is called “core-satellite.”  The core usually comprises at least 40% and often up to 60% or more of the overall equity exposure, which in turn is generally between 50% – 70% of the overall plan. Financial advisors will ratchet the individual’s equity exposure down as clients age, but generally it is the tactical satellite funds that get liquidated first.  Then the core starts getting reduced. For most US investors following the core-satellite model, the core is a fund based upon a broadly diversified index or a fund that is benchmarked to such an index.
