Ninety One (LON:N91) used to be the asset management arm of Investec and joined the market in March 2020 at 152 pence. In the 29th May issue of Investors Chronicle it's rated a hold at 202 (current price 209, 52 week high 227 on 6th June). At first glance it looks an attractive share with a stock rank of 90, a negative EV of £5.2 Bn vs a Cap of £1.95 Bn and plenty of momentum. I can't find anything particularly worrying about it apart from a forecast that its EPS will fall to 12.75 a share from current level 16.7. The other metrics are encouraging and the Price/FCF is 2.4. Although I haven't invested yet, I think this share looks like a reasonably safe investment with great prospects - have I missed something?
