Seven 'magnificent' stocks for your portfolio



Significant rerating opportunity

There’s a significant rerating opportunity at Gem Diamonds (GEM), too, making an interesting contrarian trade, says Panmure’s Kieron Hodgson.

A trading update toward the end of January should confirm Gem hit full-year production targets, and that it offers the potential to deliver a positive surprise in average values from its Let?eng diamond mine in Lesotho during 2017. The shares could be worth 162p, nearly 50% more than today’s prices.

Fri, 17th Jan 2020 08:08Alliance News
(Alliance News) - Gemfields Group Ltd on Friday said in intends to seek admission of its shares on London’s junior AIM market.

The Johannesburg-listed gemstones supplier said it is not seeking to raise capital as part of admission, which is expected to become effective on February 14.

Gemfields said the AIM listing will allow it to access to greater liquidity and international investors.

“We are looking forward to this next phase in the company’s development and to delivering value for all our shareholders,” said Chief Executive Sean Gilbertson.

Gemfields left AIM in July 2017 after takeover by Pallinghurst Resources Ltd. However, in March 2019, the company decided to return to AIM amid “lack of broker research and share trading liquidity, as well as feedback from shareholders”.

In November, Gemfields replaced its chair as the process to gain AIM stock market listing highlighted that the father and son relationship between Chair Brian Gilbertson and Chief Executive Officer Sean Gilbertson would potentially pose an impediment to corporate governance.

As a result, Brian Gilbertson stepped down as a director of Gemfields after 12 years on the board. He was replaced by Martin Tolcher.

Gemfields shares were untraded in Johannesburg on Friday morning, last closing at ZAR1.87 each.

Gem Diamonds Revenue Rises As Diamond Prices Improve
from Alliance News | 13th February 2020 10:32
(Alliance News) - Gem Diamonds Ltd said Thursday its revenue increased in the fourth quarter of 2019, as larger high-quality diamonds prices started to improve.

In the trading update for the fourth quarter ending December 31, the miner said its revenue rose 41% to USD51.3 million from USD36.3 million in the third quarter.

The company said it sold 29,945 carats during the period, a 17% increase from 25,631 carats sold in the third quarter. It also sold seven diamonds for more than USD1.0 million each, generating revenue of USD15.6 million during the period.

“Following pressure on the prices for the larger high-quality diamonds seen during 2019, signs of improvement were noted in December 2019 and this has continued into 2020,” the company noted.

The company also said the mining lease for Letseng mine in Lesotho was renewed for a further 10 years, effective from October 3, with an exclusive right granted to renew for a further period of 10 years thereafter.

Clifford Elphick, chief executive officer, said: “Carats sold are up 17% on the prior quarter. There was an increase in volumes treated for the year and a significant reduction in the waste profile.”

“This, together with the Business Transformation programme delivering its targeted gains and continued emphasis on cost controls, positions the company well for the anticipated upturn in the market which appears to have begun,” Elphick said.

Gem Diamonds shares were trading 4.9% higher in London at 68.80 pence each on Thursday.
