|Sizeable stake declared today and positive for the share price Maybe light at the end of the tunnel.|
|Perhaps AIM'ers are getting fed up with companies always tapping the shareholders to pay the BoD's salaries or digging holes only to find nothing. It's possible people want to invest in solid companies that make money and hold solid funds.|
|So there is life in the dog today but I expect it will take a fair wack of buying to move it above the ask of 32p now. If it does, is there something happening in the background? A big contract maybe?|
|OT - I think ct and myself are looking at the second half only not the full year and we are stating it in GBP not JPY - LOL! - also if you really think 350K why such a small divi? for an optimist you should be on a higher divi than 2p at least 3p if not 4p!
I was upset when I first heard that the divi last year had been cut to 2p now I understand why - the headlines when the full year figures come out I think will read "AEO lower profits but dividend maintained " They could have paid out 3p last year but probably saw good sense in holding up the cash balances to smooth out the poor trading conditions this year while maintaining the good dividend payouts I think it was the right decision paying only 2p last year.|
|I've taken a print screen of the above two prediction's and will remind them endlessly (just for fun) at the year end.
I'm always wrong so I may just say 350k & 2p, always the optimist.|
|If were are all going to have a guess then mine would be considerably lower - between loss 50k to profit of £50k - Dividend 1p at best.|
|The second half is normally higher we can certainly expect to see profits lower than last year - particularly as I think the three year contract at Caanes has come to an end. My guess a profit for H2 of between 100K - 150K with the dividend maintained at 2p with the cash balance still around a million.|
|Oh Dear, they just aren't playing the AIM game. Making a profit, holding cash and being proud of what they actually do whereas most AIM companies lose money tap the shareholders for money and dream of what they may do in ten years time.
This comment reassures me, "working with several blue-chip corporations and attracting a pipeline of potential quality business." The Chairman comments are normally playing down so I take this very positive.
The MM's took the results well with a uptick.
One day Donald Trump will knock on the door looking for much needed help!
2017 smiles and it's only January.
Cheer up CT it will be all over one day. (whatever makes you so glum)|
|ramas. Yes fair comment. I too prefer small caps to have a large Director holding,its different here though with such a large dividend being (regularly) paid. It distorts the motive. Whilst I see the small number of key accounts as being a major threat, they must be doing something right to keep them!
The Company is still basically, to me at least, an enigma, maybe it needs a new Exec Chairman to give it more focus?
Hopefully, the (impressive) dividends can continue to offset the share price performance until growth kicks back in. No doubt the very brave will be saying now is the time to buy, but its not for me yet.|
|PJ... I'd also like a bit more visibility but media is always going to be difficult to predict good and bad ... shareownership you have managed to turn a positive into a negative i.e. aligned with shareholder interests. Fact is AEO has turned a profit in all bar 2 years from memory , not all hitting the statements of course. Dividends in the last 4 years as well. Would I buy today hmmm dunno there isn't a growth story here at the moment and not exactly the best performer in my portfolio. Personally I'll stick around there is potential and I'm interested in Ruperts recent stake. I think the YouTube idea has merit even I make a few quid out of it and I don't even try that hard, lacklustre editing skills, content and timeliness rule.|
|Maybe these need adding on top as well? Unsure TBF
Some directors were awarded a bonus in the year. S Quah was awarded a bonus of £25,000 (2015: £30,000) and
P Litten was awarded a bonus of £17,000 (2015: £20,000).|
plus say £165K dividends
Who lives with who?
Blatantly currently a west end lifestyle share
|Yes "Lifestyle" tiwas, if they paid themselves more, which they could do at a strok, and not unreasonably - the result could be a pretty large loss rather than a tiny profit.
Wait for the sells as no talk of "Special Dividends" these days.|
|Lifestyle company? Have you seen the level of directors remuneration?|
|Nothing in that update to make me even want to consider an investment, never mind make one.
Both debtors and creditors have reduced so no concerns there for me, although cash burn going forward needs a careful eye.
Worryingly, why do AEO refer to ''inline with management expectations'' when they refuse to give any indications of what those expectations are? Were they the expectations at the beginning of the year or the expectations from the last Board meeting. Your guess is as good as mine.
I'm surprised it was marked up this morning with the cautious outlook.
Still clearly a too secretive, self focused lifestyle Company.
Maybe Rupert knows more than me?|
|As mentioned before AEO do have the capability to surprise if they can and want to tap into the lucrative media opportunities offered for example by YouTube , I appreciate that's easy for me to say|
|Net assets down by about 100k , still profitable... the unknown is h2 as always, realistically I expect there will be some challenges but still expect a profitable year , maybe reduction in dividend. I think the approach is to keep a million buffer for bad times and distribute any residual as dividends.... do I expect the market to rerate probably not unless a big multi year deal gets signed ....|
|LOL Jeez - I never said anything about liabilities in my post 3937.
I clearly also stated the dates, so not to be misleading. :-)|
Why do you bother commenting when you can not even read a simple balance sheet?
What are liabilities down by?
Also, try comparing the same balance sheet date.|
|No rush on this thread to talk about the figures released today - that`s a surprise.
Total Assets Down from £3,033,548.00 on 30.06.16 to £2,219,380.00 on 31.12.16 Wow that is a huge drop.
Trade and other receivables: £651,502 down as well and from the comments made in the statement, I guess they are dropping further since then.
So the positives are that the company still has a big cash pile.
Would anyone like to comment about dividends? :-)|
|AEO came Trumps up with a 0.5p rise, err why did I think of that?|
|CT, make you right there. My big funds and blue chips have done really well but you can't beat a AIM share for stress and worrying.
One day the money will filter down through the markets once the blue chips are overpriced.|
|OT - to be honest other than blue chip investments most of my AIM stocks have been horrid, look at AEO for example.|
