JUNE 2023
JUNE 2023

Cadence Capital Limited returned a positive gross performance of 1.5% in June, compared to the All Ordinaries Accumulation Index which was up 1.9% for the month. The top contributors to performance during June were Iris Energy, Meta Platforms, BHP Group, Sierra Rutile, QBE insurance and Netflix. The largest detractors from performance were Patriot Battery Metals, Qantas Airways and Resolute Mining. Cadence Capital Limited remains conservatively positioned with gross exposure of 60% and around 50% of its investable portfolio in cash.

In June, the share price uptrend in Meta Platforms, Netflix and Iris Energy continued, and we added to all three positions in line with our investment process. Netflix estimates that there are about 100 million people using Netflix by borrowing a friend or family member’s password, and they have recently announced initiatives to convert these users to paying customers, which we expect will have a positive impact on its upcoming financial results. Meta Platforms also announced Thread as a potential competitor to Twitter in June.

CDM Share Price discount to NTA

CDM is currently trading at a pre-tax NTA discount of around 9% whilst holding around 50% cash. If all the shares in the portfolio fell by 18% the pre-tax NTA would still be above the share price. To put it another way, the shares in the portfolio can be bought at an 18% discount to their underlying value.
