In June the NZ Growth Fund returned +5.9%, ahead of the local market at +5.2% (S&P/NZX50G). This rounded out a strong quarter following the market rout in the March quarter.
Fisher & Paykel Healthcare (+19%) announced a very strong 2020 fiscal year result boosted by strong hardware and consumables orders due to COVID. Its nasal high flow therapy is proving a more effective treatment for COVID patients versus traditional invasive alternatives such as intubation (an ‘endotracheal tube’ physically inserted down the throat and into the airways). Longer term, this experience could prove a powerful proof point for practitioners that F&P's products should be used for treatment of far more respiratory patients than is currently the case.
Delegat (+13%) provided an update that its upcoming fiscal 2020 result will be well ahead of its earlier expectations prior to COVID on the back of higher than expected wine case sales. The result was driven by strong sales of its core Oyster Bay products in the supermarket channel. Customers ensured they had enough product to drink at home through COVID related lockdowns and gravitated towards trusted brands. This was more than enough to compensate for lower demand from restaurants (only around 10% of normal sales mix).
