What Now for Ridley?

I asked our value investing analyst Greg Canavan for his take. He’s covered the share in detail. He told me,

‘The stock is not dirt cheap, but a close inspection of the balance sheet reveals hidden value that the market hasn’t yet recognised. We’ll need a lot more food in the years to come, and Ridley is well placed to help service that need.

‘Consider this recent quote from The Economist:

“In the next 40 years humans will need to produce more food than they did in the previous 10,000 put together.”

‘It’s a good long term story and with the lowering of the Aussie dollar, our agricultural resources will become more competitive on a global scale.’
