Western Australian Stock Exchange Index

Welcome to this Services to Major Capital Projects special edition of the Deloitte WA Stock Exchange Index (Deloitte WA Index), a monthly review of Western Australian (WA) stocks and indices.

In this special edition of the Deloitte WA Index we look at the performance of the companies providing services to Major Capital Projects as decisions regarding capital projects are continuously challenged by a variety of factors, prompting a focus in cost reduction and timely delivery by engineering, construction and project management companies.

Highlights from this special edition of the Deloitte WA Index include:

  • The market capitalisation of WA listed companies which comprise the Deloitte WA Index closed the month of April 2013 at AU$142.5bn - a decrease of 1.9% over the past six months
  • International markets surveyed fared comparatively better, as global equity market sentiment improved for the most part during the six month period to March on the back of strengthening macro-economic conditions
  • We recognise the top five percentage movers over the past six months and five years to 30 April 2013, and congratulate those companies on their achievements over a period that has had both exciting opportunities and tough challenges as we continued to see volatility at play in key underlying economic inputs
  • We take a look at the impact on input pricing and fluctuating commodity prices on investment decisions, and how this era of volatility appears to be establishing itself as the new normal
  • We also take a look at the transition from a construction boom to a production boom
  • We also present some thoughts and comment from Michael McNulty, Office Managing Partner of Deloitte Perth, providing some insight regarding the key steps companies can take to remain competitive both locally and on a global level.

The movers and shakers for the six months ended 30 April 2013 were:

  • Clough Limited
  • Forge Group Limited
  • MACA Limited
  • RCR Tomlinson Limited
  • Mineral Resources Ltd.

The movers and shakers for the five years ended 30 April 2013 were:

  • Decmil Group Limited
  • Forge Group Limited
  • Mineral Resources Ltd
  • RCR Tomlinson Limited
  • Clough Limited.
