Collected Wisdom

This week we look at Asciano, Iluka, Computershare and Ainsworth.

Summary: Analysts mostly thought Asciano’s result was above expectations but a takeover bid is overshadowing the earnings report. Reaction to Iluka’s half-year result was mixed and brokers expect a strong second half, while analysts think Computershare appears to lack near-term positive operational catalysts. The market is confident in an Ainsworth turnaround.  

Key take-out: The consensus price target on Asciano is about five per cent below the current price and analysts see a low chance of a higher takeover bid.

Key beneficiaries: General investors. Category: Shares.
