- Current Price: R1,850.00
- Currently trading at a 9.8% discount to all time high
- Market Capitalization: R207.038 Bn
- Most recent results are mildly better than expected, except for costs which have increased by more than 30% compared to the previous period.
If we look at general valuation metrics such as price to earnings, price to book and cost to income for example, Capitec is priced as a very expensive share to own. However, when we look at their past growth rate and future potential growth rate, we can justify the high multiples at which the company is trading. However, most of the most recent selling pressure came from the much higher than anticipated operational costs, which the company claims it is facing due to challenges presented by the COVID-19 pandemic. The uncertainty associated with the path going forward and how to decrease these costs will continue to force the share to trade at a discount. However, as this share has predominantly been highly priced due to its above-average results over time, any bad result or below expected results will lead to an overreaction and create buying opportunities at discounted levels.

Stadio Holdings Ltd. engages in the investment, growth, and development of higher education institutions.

- Current Price: R3.15
- Currently trading at a 66% discount to all time high.
- The technical analysis side is supportive of stronger fundamentals given that the company has now turned profitable.
- Market Capitalization: 2.62 Bn
- Active students number up 11% over the reporting period showing there’s an increase in demand for the courses and material offered.
- New student complex in Centurion is ready for new students from the beginning of next year.
Given that roughly 80% of company’s student base were on a remote study course before the pandemic, the company was well positioned to adapt with the changes which many of its peers were not so well positioned to do. This also meant that the company already had the necessary infrastructure in place to migrate their on-campus students over to remote learning. In turn, the growth levels in active students mans that the company is most certainly putting its resources and infrastructure to good use as it accumulates more market share.

- R7b investment in their Joint Venture with Ioneer’s mine in Nevada for lithium mining shows that the company is leveraging high gold and other commodity prices to strengthen and diversify their balance sheet.
We’ve seen a general trend between mining companies in South Africa to increase their capital outlay around the mining and production of coal as it still offers a fair return to the costs associated. However, the lithium Joint Venture will be a much more sustainable long-term play and its underling income will be generated in USD which further diversifies the company’s operations and will most likely prove to be more valuable than further operationalizing their new business in Rand denominated returns.
