Polymetal: downgrade of recommendation

Since our last review of Polymetal, the Company's shares have increased by 27% due to the positive dynamics of gold prices in the second half of 2018, the volatility of the stock market, the slowdown in the rate of increase in yields of US government bonds and the aggravation of trade relations between the United States and China. Emphasizing the positive trend in gold prices, the forecast increase in gold equivalent production and attractive dividend payments, on the one hand, and growth in operating costs, on the other hand, we do not expect further rapid growth in the long term. We downgrade our recommendation from Buy to Hold Polymetal shares and raise our 12M target price from 735 GBp/share to 860 GBp/share.


Macroeconomic report Q4 2018

The main barometer of the state of Kazakhstan economy – oil prices increased by 30% in 2018 from an average of $54 per barrel to $70, while rising above $80 in autumn, but dropping to $50 by the end of the year. Such significant growth of the main item of Kazakhstan exports did not fail to have a positive impact on public finances and external accounts of the country where the movement toward balance was observed for the first time since 2014, when oil prices started to fall from $100 per barrel. Even with the strong rise in oil prices, economic growth in 2018 has remained at the level of the previous year at 4.1% in 2017, indicating the lack of drivers for further acceleration. Thus, the peak of the growth in the current economic cycle had already passed. It also says about weak impact of economic policy of the State that continues to rely on the commodity sector.

Nostrum Oil and Gas - Fixed income and Equity analysis

Due to the ambiguous inventory estimates proposed by Nostrum in 9M2018, we lowered our expectations for oil production and adjusted the oil price forecast, taking into account the current state of commodity markets. Our changes were reflected in the 12M target price reduction from the previous 233 to 135 GBp/share. Uncertainty about drilling results continues to be a significant risk and we maintain our “Hold” recommendation for Nostrum shares. At the same time, we are neutral regarding the company's bonds and expect that, due to the inability of timely maturity of bonds, Nostrum will again resort to refinancing, and therefore also maintain the recommendation “Hold” on Nostrum bonds.
