Cannon Equity H4 - Dec 19
Investor sen..ment was upbeat in December, with markets rallying on the back of the Phase 1 trade deal between China and the US. The FTSE/JSE All Share Index delivered 4.6% for Q4-2019, with an overall return of 12.1% for 2019. Resources were the largest contributors to the overall market return for the year, rallying 28.5%; while industrials and financials retuned 8.9% and 0.6% respec..vely. The Cannon Equity H4 Fund (‘the fund’) was up 4.2% in Q4-2019. The largest detractors from fund performance were Onelogix (-12.2%) and KAP Industrials (-11.2%). The largest contributors were Metrofile (+34.3%) and Raubex (+25.9%). During the quarter, Metrofile announced that US-based Housatonic Consor..um had made a condi..onal, non-binding offer to acquire 100% of the group. Housatonic has offered to pay R3.30 per share in cash, represen..ng a 43.4% premium above Metrofile’s share price at the ..me of the announcement. We con..nue to see increased corporate ac..vity in the market, driven by the current low valua..ons. The fund currently trades on a PE mul..ple of 10 ..mes and a dividend yield of 4.5% which, compared to historical valua..ons and the market’s metrics, is a..rac..ve. The fund con..nues to adhere to its policy.
The Cannon Met Equity Fund aims to deliver sustainable growth in capital through exposure to listed equities over a three to five year investment horizon. Recognising the relatively long-term horizon, the fund endeavours to outperform the JSE's All Share index (alsi) on a rolling basis and, in so doing, deliver returns that ensure real growth in investors' wealth. The portfolio manager does not make use of gearing or derivative instruments to acheive the investment objective. Asset class risk must be managed by investors outside of the fund.
