How to read the securities and sector tables
52-week high: The highest price traded in the past 52 weeks.
52-week low: The lowest price traded in the past 52 weeks.
52-week volume: Total volume of shares traded in the past 52 weeks.
$1000 for 3 years: The notional end of month dollar value of an initial investment of $1000 three years ago. Dividends are reinvested using the ex-dividend price following the ex-dividend date and the calculation excludes brokerage fees.
$1000 for 1 year: The notional end of month dollar value of an initial investment of $1000 one year ago. Dividends are reinvested using the ex-dividend price following the ex-dividend date and the calculation excludes brokerage fees.
Shares on issue: The number of shares, convertible notes or options on issue that were active during the past month. Where a traded share, convertible note or option has gone inactive during the month, the number of securities will not appear until the next month, to facilitate the reporting of price for the security in the current month. The numbers of shares, convertible notes or options reported in this table (with the exception of those securities delisted during the month) are month-end figures.
Company name or security: Actual name/short name for company.
ASX code:The code allocated to identify securities and derivative products. Where a slash appears, the letter after it indicates the city of the security's home exchange (for example, S = Sydney). The first three characters refer to the underlying security. For equities, loan securities, convertible notes and company options, the last three characters are a code allocated to each security pertaining to an issuing body. In the case of ordinary shares, the last three characters are generally left blank. For exchange-traded options, the fourth character is an identifier for the expiry month and type of option (put/call), and the fifth character is an identifier for the particular series. For warrants, the fourth character is a “W” signifying a warrant, the fifth character indicates the warrant issuer, and the sixth character identifies the warrant series. For share ratio contracts, the first five characters refer to the underlying calculated ratio, and the sixth character identifies the expiry month. Contracts will expire in financial quarters identified by numbers (1,2,3,4), and letters (M,J,S,D) on alternate years.
GICS industry group: The GICS (Global Industry Classification Standard) sector indices are based on the S&P/ASX 200 index. The first two digits represent the sector and the last two digits represent the industry group within that sector.
Monthly high:The highest price traded during the current month.
Monthly low:The lowest price traded during the current month.
Monthly volume:Volume of shares traded during the current month.
Year to date average monthly volume:Average monthly volume from the start of the current year to the end of the current month (for example, 1/1/05 to 31/3/05).
Last price:The price of the security at which its last on-market sale took place on the last day of the month.
Dividends per share:A rolling 12-month (latest half plus previous half year) dividend rate per share, as declared by the issuer and adjusted by dilution factors resulting from bonus/rights issues or capital reconstruction. Each half-yearly dividend rate per share figure excludes any special cash or scrip dividend declared nearest to that half year. For quarterly dividends, the rolling 12-month figure is calculated on a quarterly basis.
Times covered:The number of times that dividend per share is covered by earnings per share.
Dividend yield:The company's dividend per share divided by the share price and converted to a percentage.
Franking Represents the level of franking attached to the rolling dividend per share. The franking level represents the percentage of the dividend on which tax has already been paid by the company. A fully franked dividend refers to the dividend on which the company issuing it has paid a full rate of tax. Where the dividends are fully franked, it is denoted by 100; where the dividends are partially franked it is denoted by a figure less than 100 (55 refers to a 55% franked dividend).
Net tangible assets (NTA):NTA indicates the net physical assets owned by shareholders at balance date. It is used to calculate the asset value per share, by indicating what would happen if all net assets were liquidated, debts repaid and then the remainder divided up among shareholders on a cents per share basis.
NTA = [(SF+CS+MO) (PC+MI+IA)] /EFPO
SF = Shareholders funds.
CS = Convertible securities.
MO = Money owing if convertible securities were made fully paid ordinaries.
PC = Preferential capital.
MI = Minority interest.
IA = Intangible assets.
EFPO = Equivalent fully paid ordinary shares.
Last/NTA: The share price divided by the NTA. A value of 1.0, for example, indicates that the market capitalisation of a company is equal to its net assets. A value of 2.0 would imply that the market is valuing the company in excess of its net assets (it may be implying a value to the company's intangible assets such as management or track record).
Earnings per share: Measures the earnings attributable to each equivalent ordinary share over a 12-month period. It is calculated by dividing the company's earnings by the number of shares on issue. This represents one of a number of gauges of a company's performance. A distinction is often drawn between basic and diluted earnings per share (EPS). Diluted EPS incorporates the effects of shares that potentially exist at any one point in time, such as where options have been issued. Such items are dilusionary in effect as they may be exercised in the future, thereby reducing the earnings that would otherwise be available for shares already issued. EPS = (Net profit after tax / number of shares on issue)
Price earnings ratio: Shows the number of times the share price covers the company's EPS. It is commonly used to measure how attractive a share is to investors, and to compare shares in one company with another. PE ratio = market price of shares / earnings per share.
Debt to equity ratio: Shows the relationship between funds provided by borrowing and funds provided by shareholders. The debt/equity ratio shows to what extent a company is financed by debt (also called the gearing or leverage ratio).
Movement in cents: Change in the share price for the month, in cents.
Interim/preliminary:Interim relates to the first six months of a financial year. Preliminary relates to an estimate of the results for the previous financial year and usually includes the announcement of the final dividend.
Net ATP 6m ($000): Net after-tax profit for the past six months.
Net ATP 1yr ($000): Net after-tax profit for the past 12 months.
Net ATP change %: Percentage change from the past financial year.
P/E to sector P/E: The price earnings ratio for a stock compared to the average price earnings ratio of the stocks in its relevant GICS sector. A positive number, for example, implies that the stock is trading at a premium to the average stock in its sector. A negative number implies that the stock is trading at a discount to the average stock in its sector. PE ratios are not reported for stocks or securities that have zero or negative earnings per share, nor are ratios to sector and industrial non-bank stocks reported in such cases.
P/E to non-bank industrial sector: The price earnings ratio for a stock compared to the average price earnings ratio for the industrial sector, excluding banks. A positive number, for example, implies that the stock is trading at a premium to the average non-bank industrial stock. A negative number implies that the stock is trading at a discount to the average non-bank industrial stock. PE ratios are not reported for stocks or securities that have zero or negative earnings per share, nor are ratios to sector and industrial non-bank stocks reported in such cases.
How to read the warrants tables
Strike: The price at which the underlying security may be bought or sold by exercise of the warrant. This figure will be fixed at nominal account of 1¢ for endowment warrants and does not refer to the amount actually outstanding on endowment warrants.
Expiry date: The date on which warrants expire. In the case of endowment warrants, there is provision for early exercise.
Conversion ratio: The quantity of warrants needed to be exercised to buy or sell one underlying share.
How to read the company reports tables
Sales: Includes all operating revenue and excludes non-operating revenue such as proceeds from the sale of assets or dividends/interest for industrial companies.
Change: Percentage changes are only calculated where both the current year and the previous year numbers are positive.
