Caltex adds value, continues Foodary roll-out

Ralton Asset Management Limited

Caltex (ASX:CTX) shares added value in May as investors began to revisit this name.

We bought the stock early this year when the share price fell after the loss of the Woolworths petrol station supply contract due to the business’ acquisition by BP. Caltex already has a strategy to replace the lost profits and it has recently made two small acquisitions that assist in partly filling the earnings gap.

Caltex is also expected to announce a broader restructuring program and productivity drive mid-year. We expect an enhanced emphasis on Caltex’s retail division with pilot programs around a new ‘Foodary’ convenience offer likely to be rolled out across its store network.

Caltex is well capitalised, providing potential for further acquisitions, further investment in Caltex retail locations or alternatively capital management (there is large pool of franking credits). (VIEW LINK)
