Cement is primed to watch

Caribbean Cement is the clear leader as the stock to watch for this week, with the company posting blowout first quarter profit of $1.13 billion or $1.33 per share up from only $348 million in 2018.
The sharp rise in profit resulted mainly from the removal of lease of equipment cost and cost of imported cement. The result is a tad below what IC Insider.com forecast of $7 per share for 2019would suggest, but is in keeping with that forecast on the basis of expected pick up in sales as the year rolls on.
The head of one of the country’s largest brokerage houses, advised his team about the results. “Please make sure all CCC on the sell side are cancelled before market opens on Monday. All clients must be informed of the results before any sales orders can be placed.” The coded message here is that the stock price will jump sharply in trading on Monday. Keep on watching this one.
Sagicor Group had buying up to $44 on Friday and should continue to attract investors’ interest. NCB Financial Group came out with a fall in profit for the March quarter and is unlikely to see buying coming in to move the price even if they announce the closure of the Guardian acquisition of majority shares. Supreme Ventures released flat March results that may put pressure on the stock price that is selling close to 30 times 2019 earnings.

Wisynco, most attractively priced main market stock.

Continue to keep an eye on Wisynco that closed at $12 on Friday with increased buying interest during the past week as the company continues to expand the volume of products it represents that augurs well for increased profit going forward. The stock remains one of the most appealing main market buys currently. RJR and Seprod remain attractive buys and continue on the watch list along with Barita Investments that seems set to post very strong second quarter results.
The picture for the Junior Market is unclear but with Caribbean Cream full year results to February, are now due and will provide information in directing the stock price. Added to the list are Honey Bun that holds its annual general meeting on Monday that may provide price sensitive information and Stationery and Office Supplies.

Sagicor Cayman

Sagicor Group closed the shortened Easter week at $45 up from $38.15 at the close of the prior week following release of 2018 full year results.
The price could move higher this week with limited supply for sale on the market, below $50.
Helped by the sharp rise in the price of Sagicor, the main market climbed more than 8,000 points for the week, with the biggest move coming on Thursday of just under 7,000 points, while the Junior Market had no clear direction.
Trading for the week suggests that investors are over the impact on the market of the Initial Public Offer of Wigton Windfarm that opened on the 17 of April.
The release of some of the 2019 first quarter results are due late this week and are worth watching. Chief amongst them will be Caribbean Cement, NCB Financial Group and Supreme Ventures. While NCB’s results are due on Thursday and investors could react to them on Friday, others may not comeuntil after trading on Friday, as such may not have any impact until the following week.

NCB Financial traded at $145 on the JSE on Thursday.

Investors should keep an eye on, Wisynco that continues to hold just under $12. The company continues to expand the volume of products and companies it represents that augurs well for increased profit going forward. The stock remains one of the most appealing main market buys currently. RJR and Seprod remain attractive buys, continue on the watch list and are joined by Barita Investments.
The picture for the Junior Market is unclear but with Caribbean Cream full year results to February, due by the end of the week, it will be interesting how investors treat with it.
