ASX Stocks

In this exclusive report, we cover the best and worst-performing ASX stocks of 2021, as well as historic ASX data: PE ratio, dividend yields, performance, and sector and index analysis.

Top Performing ASX Stocks of 2021

Here are the top-performing ASX stocks in the mid-large cap sectors.

1. Cettire ASX: CTT (560.26%)

Cettire is an online fashion retailer with a range of products from over 500 designers. Including high-end names like Prada, Gucci, Saint Laurent, Balenciaga, and Valentino.

The retailer has had the most impressive gains amongst the mid-large cap ASX stocks, with a massive jump of 560.26% in 2021.

More than 90 percent of Cettire’s revenue comes from international markets and most of its customers (64 percent) are in the US. COVID lockdowns have lead to a boom period for online retails as numbers rocketed across the board, and CTT is a perfect example. 

Cettire’s sales have risen from $545,000 in 2018 to $22.8 million in 2020. Sales up a massive 331 per cent to $18.5 million in the March quarter

CTT was founded in 2017, and its unique platform allows for automation of a lot of their sales side, allowing for reduced costs and massive scalability. The group went public in late 2020 raising $65 million in capital at 50 cents per share. This valued them at $190.6 million on listing, today their market cap is over $1.6 Billion.

2. Vulcan Energy Resources ASX: VUL (389.42%)

Vulcan is aiming to become the world’s first lithium producer with net-zero greenhouse gas emissions. Its ZERO CARBON LITHIUM™ Project intends to produce a battery-quality lithium hydroxide chemical product from its combined geothermal energy and lithium resource, which is Europe’s largest lithium resource, in Germany.

Vulcan’s goal is to produce zero-carbon lithium and other battery metals such as Copper, Nickel and Cobolt.

Shares in Vulcan Energy (VUL ASX) started the year trading at around $0.52 per share but over the last twelve months have exploded to trade at new 52-week highs of $15.34.

The company has a price to sales ratio of 0 as Vulcan Energy shares are yet to generate any revenue.

3. Novonix ASX: NVX (289.1%)

NOVONIX is a battery materials and technology company, enabling an electrified future for electric vehicles and grid energy storage. We bring better battery technology to market rapidly by leveraging our advanced R&D capabilities, proprietary technology, and strategic relationships. Source, Novonix Group

Novonix has acquired a large array of impressive clients and relationships including;

  • Huawei
  • Hinda
  • Bosch
  • Panasonic
  • LG
  • Samsung
  • Dyson
  • Phillips 66

The increased demand and reliance on environmentally conscious efficient battery power has been a key catalyst for the success of Novonix Group. The group is focused on longer-life batteries, higher energy efficiency, reduced chemical usage, reduced waste generation, and cleaner power inputs.

Our vision is to accelerate the adoption of battery technologies for a cleaner energy future.

4. Imugene ASX: IMU (280.79%)

Imugene is a cancer treatment research company that seeks to find a universal therapy that is able to target broad cancer types irrespective of their origins. 

Imugene hopes to uncover the holy-grail of cancer treatment

On the back of this announcement, ROTH Capital upgraded its guidance for Imugene share price to a twelve-month target of 43 cents.

ROTH Capital expects these products to bring in royalties of $1.7 billion by the year 2031. View their report here.

5. PPK Group ASX: PPK (228.35%)

PPK Group (ASX: PPK) is a diversified investment company with interests in a range of highly prospective and innovative technologies with broad application and high growth potential. PPK has interests in batteries, ballistic armor, dental products, mining technology, and boron nitride nanotubes (BNNTs)

The group has six key investments:

BNNT Technology Ltd

BNNT is leading the world in the development, manufacture, and commercialization of Boron Nitride Nanotubes (BNNT’s).

BNNT’s have extraordinary mechanical properties and are considered the world’s strongest and most advanced fiber and offer significant material benefits in aviation, automotive, space travel, power generation, batteries, electronics, and defense. PPK acquired a 50% interest in BNNT Technology Ltd in March 2019.

Craig International Ballistics Ltd

Craig International Ballistics (CIB) is a leading supplier of body armor to the Australian Defence Force (ADF) and Police Forces. PPK holds a 45% interest in CIB.

Li-S Energy Pty Ltd

Li-S is planning to use BNNT’s to overcome three major hurdles in the commercialization of Lithium Sulphur batteries. PPK holds a 58% interest in Li-S Energy.

Advanced Mobility Analytics Group Pty Ltd (AMAG)

Advanced Mobility Analytics Group Pty Ltd (AMAG) aims to be the world’s leading digital platform provider for proactive road safety analytics and management. PPK acquired a 20% in the company in 2020.

PPK Mining Equipment

PPK Mining Equipment designs manufactures, and services the industry renowned range of COALTRAM flameproof and explosion-proof diesel Load Haul Dump (LHD) utility vehicles.

The group’s key investments have gathered a rise in investor interests with macro-economic demand. Similarly to Novonix, PPK has managed to capitalize on the global surge in battery technology demand. Arguably Australia-China tensions have pushed investor interest in the defense industry as well.

Worst Performing Stocks of 2021

Here are the worst-performing ASX stocks in the mid-large cap sectors.

1. Appen ASX: APX (-71.6%)

Appen provides and works with data used for the development of machine learning and artificial intelligence. Some of the data types include speech and natural language data, image and video data, text and alphanumeric data, and relevant data to improve search and social media engines.

We provide high-quality training data with our leading technology platform, managed services, and our global crowd to power AI globally.

Appen went public back in January 2015. The company started off at 50 cents a share and raised $15 million in capital, giving it a market cap of $47.3 Million

We also draw your attention to the recent share price decline in technology
stocks in the US which may be impacting sentiment around the technology sector in Australia.Source: Appen’s release to the ASX share price enquiry

This quote is after Appen’s massive share price crash of 21% in a single day. This came as the companies mediocre results disappointed investors.

2. A2 Milk ASX: A2M (-64.16%)

A2 Milk operates in the commercialization of A1 protein-free branded milk and related products. Their products are sourced from cows specially selected to naturally produce milk with only the A2 beta-casein protein. 

Australia and New Zealand are the company’s established markets. A2M shares became popular due to their massive growth in exporting infant formula to the Chinese markets.  

On the 10th of May, A2M released their fourth downgrade since September 2020, as COVID’s macroeconomic impact has practically ended the company’s daigou channel, due to the complete reduction of tourism and international travel. 

The barrage of downgrades and bad news has sent the share price tumbling in 2021.

3. AGL Energy ASX: AGL (-60.57%)

AGL Energy Ltd is a key player in Australia’s generation and retailing of electricity and gas for both residential and commercial customers. It is also Australia’s biggest climate polluter, with 85% of its electricity coming from the burning of coal, making it not a very ESG friendly investment.

AGL’s share price has collapsed to a 19-year low, as it has continued to drop over the last five years.

AGL’s EPS fell by 31.6% to 86.2 cents.

The downfall of AGL has come from a string of earnings downgrades, followed by a disappointing result as their Revenues fell 10% over the previous year to $10.9 billion. 

4. Polynovo ASX: PNV (-58.79%)

PolyNovo develops and commercializes innovative medical devices using its NovoSorb technology in the treatment of burns, surgical wounds, and Negative Pressure Wound Therapy. Source, ASX

NovoSorb is a family of proprietary medical-grade polymers that can be expressed in a variety of physical formats. NovoSorb polymers have advantageous properties such as biocompatibility and design flexibility. These properties underpin novel medical devices designed to support tissue repair before they biodegrade in situ into biocompatible by-products via established pathways. Source, PolyNovo

Polynovo price was impacted after the release of its half-year financial results. Although we saw sales growth it was below investor expectations. Lockdowns and restrictions on elective surgeries have impacted PNV greatly.

5. Kogan ASX: KGN (-56.26%)

Whilst it’s hard to put a finger on exactly what has gone wrong for KGN ASX over the past year if you scroll out a little the 5-year performance is still extremely impressive. In our opinion shares are simply taking a breather as they were likely overvalued based on price to sales and price to earnings.

The Kogan stock price rallied over the COVID-19 pandemic. Reaching a massive PE of over 65x and a high price to sales ratio. 

The company has spread itself thin on capital in a massive bet on loading up on inventories and acquisitions.

Whilst the company is competing in a space we greatly believe will continue to grow, there is still the key risk of other competitors entering the space. We are interested to see how Kogan’s bet will pay off.

ASX Stocks: Historic Performance

ASX All Ordinaries Total Return

The ASX All Ordinaries Total Return benchmarks the performance of ‘All Ords’ after accounting for dividends, representing the total return for ASX stock investors.

ASX All Ordinaries

Historic Returns Per Year

Over the 40-year timeframe from 1980-2019 we can see the historic annual return for ASX stocks (Accounting for dividends). Over this time frame, a total of 10 years have had negative returns.

ASX Stocks

The Average Annual Return has been 13.27%

Investment Timeframe

The Time Horizon of Risk: 7 Years

Investing in stocks generally isn’t recommended for the short term. If you’re needing your cash within a year or so, the stock market probably isn’t the place.

The recommended investment timeframe for shares should be at least three years and preferably even seven years or more.  Shares tend to be highly volatile over the shorter term, meaning you are likely to produce negative returns and lose capital. Although over the longer-term shares have the potential to produce high returns, with reduced risks.

Here’s the Proof:

We see taking the market over random 7-Year time frames, the ASX All Ordinaries have not lost capital. This appears to be true across any 7-year period, except surrounding the 2008 GFC crash.

As our investment timeframe reduces to 3 Years we start to experience a loss in 14.3% of periods. With a short-term time frame of 1.5 Years, we realize a loss in 35.7% of periods.

Most Talked About ASX Stocks Mid-2021

Mesoblast

Mesoblast has found their products Remestemcel-L reduces the mortality rate of COVID patients with moderate to severe ARDS (Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome).

“Remestemcel-L reduced mortality by 75% and increased days alive off mechanical ventilation in patients under age 65 when combined with dexamethasone, in comparison with controls on dexamethasone.”

Mesoblast has the potential to take a large burden on the cost and availability of healthcare.

Last year the FDA granted Fast Track designation Mesoblast for the treatment of acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS) due to COVID-19.

ZIP Pay

Zip Co Limited (Z1P) offers point-of-sale credit and payment solutions to customers and providing a variety of integrated Retail Finance solutions to merchants across numerous industries, both online and in-store.

They are a key Buy-Now Pay-later provider.

Following the imminent acquisition of Afterpay by US giant Square, Z1P has been on the radar more so than ever.

Askari Metals

Askari Metals is one of the ASX’s latest and most promising junior copper-gold explorers. The company has an extremely low enterprise value of ~$2.77 million.

Askari boasts a massive five 100% owned copper and gold projects, located in the lucrative Lachlan Fold Belt of NSW and WA

Askari Metals (ASX:AS2) is an early-stage copper-gold explorer about to drill for high-grade copper-gold right next to billion-dollar copper-gold producer SandFire Resources.

AS2:ASX was listed on the ASX on July 11th with an IPO price of $0.20 through lead manager Peak Asset Management. The share price ended the day up ~25% to $0.27.

How to Buy ASX Stocks?

You can buy ASX shares using a CHESS-Sponsored broker like pearler. When buying shares through a CHESS Sponsored broker it means the ASX has a record of you owning those shares directly. When you join one of these brokers you get given a HIN (Holder Identification Number), and the shares are then attached to you, via that number. You can have multiple numbers at multiple online brokers.

Buying shares through a low-cost flat-free broker like pearler can help save money on brokerage fees.
