Upgrade to Neutral from Sell

$61.00

-6.51%

On further assessment of Wesfarmers' better-than-forecast interim performance, Citi analysts no longer see downside risk to consensus forecasts and instead lift their own by 7% in FY25 and by 5% in FY25.

Rating had been upgraded to Neutral from Sell in Citi's early response yesterday, with the price target moving to $61 from $45.

Kmart is clearly a better business than we thought, the analysts admit, while further growth in house prices should continue to support Bunnings.

In a beat to both Citi and consensus expectations, Wesfarmers reported earnings of $2.195m for the first half.

Kmart continued to be the outperformer of the Wesfarmers portfolio, reporting a 170 basis points earnings margin improvement. The brand's private label, Anko, now boasts 85% penetration, and has recently been rolled out to Target.

While earnings from Bunnings were flat, the broker points out it had expected negative earnings growth given cost pressures and a currently weak hardware category. 

The rating is upgraded to Sell from Neutral.

FORECAST
Citi forecasts a full year FY24 dividend of 199.00 cents and EPS of 223.70 cents.
Citi forecasts a full year FY25 dividend of 226.00 cents and EPS of 248.50 cents.
