A lead­ing con­struc­tion com­pany that stands to ben­e­fit from prospec­tive in­fra­struc­ture spend­ing by both state and fed­eral gov­ern­ments. It keeps win­ning con­tracts. Has a sig­nif­i­cant pres­ence in the pre­mium elec­tri­cal ap­pli­ances mar­ket both lo­cally and in the US, and has a strong profit growth out­look. This one is for the pun­ters. If suc­cess­ful, the pro­posed merger/takeover of Tatts should reap valu­able syn­er­gies, and there­fore it looks like an at­trac­tive propo­si­tion. The re­cent con­tretemps with the gov­ern­ment over en­ergy sup­ply is un­help­ful, and in­vestors should watch for op­por­tu­ni­ties if there is a re­trac­tion in share price. An out­stand­ing share­mar­ket per­former over the years. How­ever, re­tail­ers gen­er­ally are out of favour, a sen­ti­ment com­pounded by Ama­zon’s im­mi­nent ar­rival. This erst­while strong per­former has faced chal­leng­ing times with the changes to gov­ern­ment reg­u­la­tions, on top of in­creased com­pe­ti­tion in the form of Uber.
