Cyan Investment Management’s Dean Fergie on three companies he favours for 2021

Cyan Investment Management Director Dean Fergie cautioned investors to focus on a business’ fundamentals, rather than pricing shares on the momentum of their industry.

Cyan Investment Management Director Dean Fergie cautioned investors to focus on a business’ fundamentals, rather than pricing shares on the momentum of their industry.

Speaking on Reach Markets’ fortnightly ‘The Insider: Meet The Fund Manager’ webcast series, Mr Fergie said a recent fixation on momentum has created an environment in which usual valuation metrics are less reliable.

Even so, Mr Fergie identified three businesses he believes are well placed for growth under current market conditions.

 

Raiz Invest Australia (ASX: RZI)

Formerly known as Acorns, Raiz Invest (ASX: RZI) is an investment app which allows users to put small sums of money into one of six stock portfolios managed by the company.

The company hit the bourse in 2018 with an issue price of $1.80 per share, and failed to make an impact – closing its first day of trade at $1.40. And until 2021, the price fluctuated between around $1.10 and $0.40.

But with interest rates hovering at historic lows and markets performing well, Mr Fergie says this sector will enjoy strong tailwinds in the months ahead.

Alcidion Group (ASX: ALC)

Alcidion (ASX: ALC) is a healthcare technology company enabling doctors to digitally record patient information.

Mr Fergie noted the company has a strong recurring revenues and net cash balance, and are very close to breakeven, and continue to sign on new clients across the UK and Australia.

Swift Media Limited (ASX: SW1)

Mr Fergie’s final pick was Swift Media (ASX: SW1), a company which provides industry-specific digital entertainment services for the resources, hospitality and aged care sectors.

This includes very specific and targeted content and messaging – outlining safety practices, menus and activities relevant to users at a particular site.

The company has struggled in recent times, but has since brought in new leadership and the company’s financials are now pointing in the right direction, he said.
