Blackstone Resources receives BB credit rating from AlphaValue
BAAR, Switzerland – (June 29, 2020) – Blackstone Resources AG (SWX: BLS) is pleased to announce that AlphaValue has given Blackstone Resources a BB credit-risk rating in its latest research update. AlphaValue currently covers Blackstone Resources and maintained a BUY rating in June with the target 2020 of CHF 2.61, well above the actual share price.
It considers Blackstone Resources as an “intriguing battery materials play”, due to its ownership of key materials, like lithium, manganese, cobalt, nickel and others. It has also commented favourably on Blackstone’s battery technology investments, which it believes is well-positioned in the actual R&D stages.
AlphaValue has based its valuation model on using GLENCORE (BB), ANGLO AMERICAN (A), BOLIDEN (CC) and ERAMET (CC) as comparable to a sector rating of BBB. Behind Blackstone’s BB credit rating is an attractive P/Book ratio of just 0.38, in comparison to the peer group, which sits at 1.04.
This low figure is despite the equity in the company recently increasing over the past year to owing to a number of successful transactions. Meanwhile the half year earnings 2020E have increased to
CHF 0.56 earning per share from CHF 0.13 for the year 2019.
