Collected Wisdom

This week we look at Woolworths, Harvey Norman, Flight Centre, Perpetual and Ramsay Health Care.

Summary: Uncertainty surrounds Woolworths given the risk of a price war with competitors Coles and Aldi, while analysts bullish on Harvey Norman say strong housing starts numbers will turn into completions and benefit HVN shareholders. Flight Centre has a solid balance sheet and the potential to make acquisitions, analysts see value in Perpetual and the market finds plenty to like in Ramsay Health Care.

Key take-out: Woolworths has had a tough 12 months and analysts anticipate the company’s weak momentum will remain into FY16.

Key beneficiaries: General investors. Category: Shares.
