rivaldo: Tipped here this morning - I think more acquisitions are on the cards rather than special dividends, but hey.... Dobsey, the shares have had a good run, markets are volatile and some short-termers have taken profits. IMO the share price will soon gather steam and advance again: Http:// "Special dividend? Acal(LSE: ACL) is another company that has all the hallmarks of a top dividend play. Today the company announced its full-year results for the year ended 31 March 2017 showing strong growth across the board. Earnings per share rose 13% to 19.2p as underlying profit before tax rocketed higher to £17.2m, up from £14.5m in the year-ago period. Revenue grew by 18% or 6% at constant exchange rates. The best performing metric was the group's cash flow. Cash flow from operations increased 66% from £16.3m to £27.1m and the group's cash balance at the end of the period hit £22m, up from £20m at the end of the last fiscal year. This cash balance gives the company more than enough headroom to maintain its current dividend payout of 8.6p per share, which is costing around £5.2m per annum. Unfortunately, this kind of dividend security does not come cheap. Like Amino, shares in Acal trade at a relatively high forward earnings multiple of 15 times, but City analysts have pencilled-in earnings per share growth of 14% for the year ending 31 March 2018, so the high multiple is to some extent justified by growth. The shares support a dividend yield of 3%, and the payout is expected to grow by around 5% per annum for the foreseeable future. With such a healthy balance sheet I wouldn't rule out special dividends along the way as well."
rivaldo: The IC tip was almost a month ago :o)) More likely, especially given the recent rush of buying via AT trades, that institutional investors have begun buying in following their review of the trading update. As I said before, imo the market is only just cottoning on to the transformation in quality taking place, and it just needed the trigger of a positive trading update to start things off. Based on Finncap's forecast of 22.9p EPS for this year, a 320p share price would only be a P/E of 13.9. It seems to me that following the final results on 6th June there may well be upgrades to those price targets of 320p-330p.
mfhmfh: share price rising and starting to reflect the quality of the company. IMHO
mip55: SoundBuy that: 15 Oct 2015 Acal PLC ACL finnCap Buy 269.00 269.00 Reiterates........ Could that be an error?.....last target was 339. Seems odd broker target is current share price
epsilon mojo: Not shown much strength recently valediction :-( Strange how this has drifted lower on small volumes despite saying they would be ahead of expectations; currently trades on a 2011/12 pe of 12 with earnings set to more than double over the next 2 years - very cheap imv (cheaper still if, as I suspect, FY results on 1st June herald further eps upgrades). Momentum clearly behind this business imo, despite the recent share price performance. Expecting a return to strength soon :-)
epsilon mojo: Wondered what those enormous trades were yesterday - Activa Capital selling 5% & the share price still goes up; bodes well for the next 12 months imv. Interested to know why they sold though if anyone knows.
targatarga: liveinhope - just returned from a fishing trip.... turned out as a bigger waste of time as holding these. My fear is the management speak could be an extension of what were heard before. Remember acal had a share price in excess of £5 not so many years ago. Where has that value gone? With the massive cash injection from the sale of messagelabs i was hoping for some reassuring green shoots. Yes we hear about the sse but thats only a small part of the group. Will try and have another look tomorrow. regards tt
liveinhope: targatarga - how do you read results out today? Market seems indifferent on these. At least a dividend of 3.5p being paid but not fully covered by earnings etc. SSE keep being mentioned in results and as having solid Management so will be interested to learn progress in how they are changing ASC part of business and how this is going. IMHO share price up with events and do not expect any fireworks in short term on this share.
liveinhope: Rainmaker - rose tinted glasses? Agree at current share price could be good recovery punt but remember 700p + share price. Happy days.
rainmaker: Acal Chairman, Richard Moon's £50k's worth £30k for him and another £20k for a Company where he is a Director.By my calculation Net Working Capital is 113p a share so with the share price of 90p,a bargain ratio of 1.25. Very thinly traded. regards
