Less than two months from its Spinoff on March 23, 2020, Electrolux Professional’s AB (EPROB SS) first earnings results beat expectations and shares jumped +29% on the day, touching our target price. While our long-term positive outlook is maintained, in the short-term EPRO could face some headwinds ahead in FY20, particularly because of the pandemic. As a result, we will continue to keep EPROB SS on our watchlist for re-entry opportunities in the future.

Modern Times Group’s (MTGB SS) recent 1QFY20 earnings came in again lower than expectations. Longer-term, MTGB still has positive catalysts with either the sale or the US listing of its online gaming segment. However, with the potential near-term pressure on the stock and the removal of company guidance for the rest of its FY20E, we’ll be exiting MTGB from our Model Portfolio.

Today marked the first day of regular trading for Graincorp Ltd (GNC AU) and its Spinoff United Malt Group Ltd (UMG AU) after trading on a when-issued basis since March 26. We believe this separation paves the way to higher valuations for either company as they seek being taken over by larger players, though until that comes through they will continue to operate as leaders in their respective industries. Read on for more details on the value created on their first regular day of trading.

Yesterday (April 1, 2020) marked the first day of regular trading for the newly-separated Howmet Aerospace, Inc. (HWM, formerly Arconic, Inc. - ARNC) and Arconic Corp. (ARNC, Spinoff). The Parent previously made the same move to give its 2016 Spinoff its name and ticker (Alcoa Corp. - AA), resulting in significant market confusion, now being replicated with this new split. We are positive on HWM post-Spin's potential, and recommend looking for lower levels for entry into either entity.

Despite the ongoing selloff in the global markets, Electrolux AB (ELUXB SS) completed the Spinoff of its professional products business Electrolux Professional AB (EPROB SS) yesterday (March 23, 2020). We are positive on the forward outlooks in the mid- to long-term for both of these companies, considering the discounts they trade at relative to their peers and how negatives seem priced-in at current levels.

While Modern Times Group MTG AB (MTGB SS) saw a -3% drop the day after its Q4FY19 and FY19 earnings report on February 6, 2020, the company still has positive catalysts ahead. The earnings drop was primarily due to a fallen-through partnership with Tencent-backed Huya, Inc. (China's game stream leader); however, two potential catalysts for MTGB include a US listing (which the management has been mulling over) and the sale of the online gaming segment. Read on for more.

The stock has returned over 32% from The Edge's adjusted buy price, prompting an exit.
