Perspective Balanced Prescient comment - Mar 19

2019/05/28 00:00:00
Moody’s sent a team to review and update their view on South Africa during the last week of the month. The rating agency decided not to take any action. They appear to be providing a window for a Ramaphosa-led ANC government to evidence their political commitment to much-needed structural reforms after the national elections in May. It is a reprieve which keeps the country’s sovereign credit rating at investment grade with stable outlook - for now. Moody’s are effectively deferring judgement until the next review in November 2019.
As custodians of clients’ life savings, we have a responsibility to review the companies we choose to invest in on a more regular basis than rating agencies. We reviewed all of the fund holdings during the first quarter of the year and specifically looked for leading indicators of distress or anything that could potentially derail the underlying investment theses. Confidence levels increased in companies like MTN and Sasol, while a combination of excessively leveraged balance sheets, industry structure and management concerns resulted in us exiting positions in Tongaat Hulett, Mediclinic and British American Tobacco.
Risk management is an explicit part of our investment approach. What often goes unseen is the companies we choose to not invest in. We have deliberately avoided putting money to work in companies like PPC, Brait, Aspen and Nampak, despite what appears to be relatively attractive prices. These companies have taken on high levels of debt at the top of the economic cycle to fund aggressive acquisitions and projects in complex operating environments. The fund has also maintained a relatively small position in listed property, which is substantially cheaper than what it was a year ago, but continues to trade at prices which understate the risks at the broader industry level.
