Brokers 2011 Stock Picks

You may have read my sharemarket picks for 2011 but for some light reading over the holidays lets take a look at some of the "professionals" picks from brokers and the like.

Please keep in mind that just like my picks there maybe some financial interest involved in picking them, there usually is, but in my case I disclose whether I have a holding in any of the stocks that I have picked. It is not clear from the NZ Herald article from where these picks originate as to whether the brokers have holdings or not. One would assume they did but they could of course just be theoretical selections.

Share Investor Portfolio: Value at 27 December 2010

The Share Investor Portfolio had a good week last week and was up well on last weeks update. The portfolio was up by 1% or $2782.91. The main reason for the rise was a 5c gain in the biggest part of the portfolio, Sky City and another surge in the Mainfreight share price. There were small gains in most other stocks.

The total of unspent dividends in the bank from the 2010 earnings year is $16631.93 at close of reporting season for 2010. There are also approx $50000.00 in tax credits earned fromLink the portfolio since it began in late 2002.

The final portfolio update for 2010 will be coming this week.

Stock of the Week: Mainfreight Ltd



Mainfreight Ltd [MFT.NZX] has had a simply outstanding run in its share price over 2010 (see YTD chart above) and especially in the last month or so. The stock started 2010 at just over $5.55 and closed trading yesterday at $7.96. The last month has seen the stock rise from $7.25. (see one month chart below)It has come off a low of $3.25 in early 2009.



The stock is now back at levels that it was trading in early 2007 (see five year chart below) and few NZX stocks have managed to do that pre the October 2008 stockmarket crash.

LinkI bought my initial shareholding at $7.96 and $8 4 years ago (clearly picked the wrong time there) and my most recent addition in 2009 for $4.20. To me it looks like the stock price has run away with itself.

The company has largely recovered from the recession but we will have to see a couple of years of sustained growth before the expectations of the market match the share price.

Beware before you buy !

I see good long-term value based on the current share price, otherwise I wouldn't have bought it at its peak 3 - 4 years ago (there was also a very big dividend involved in my buying that stock as well) but you could well get it cheaper at some stage during 2011 as the market realises it might well have overreacted.

Quality companies like this though always rise to the top.
