winsome147: Couldn't resist topping up with some spare cash. I guess this is the next best thing to govt bonds, paying a higher div. Low debt and secured rent from the govt make it hard to beat as a safe haven. Given that inflation is set to rise sharply next few years and much of Assura's rent is inflation linked then the targeted 10% rise in divs pa should be easy to achieve. That puts the yield at 7.25% in 5 yrs time and if interest rates don't rise much in the meantime then I'd expect a share price closer to 75p by then.
winsome147: Any obvious reason for the squeeze on the share price recently, especially last few days? PHP following same pattern. Wondering should I top up. One of the few rock solid shares these days.
stupidboypike: Well I waited and finally got in at less than 55p. Got to be OK long term but as ever no idea what the share price will do over the next few months. Best regards SBP
zeppo: Ate there share price performance targets? z
hyperboreus: Which shorters are you referring to oc, I haven't come across Assura on any Short Interest Tracking websites? As I have mentioned before I have held and accumulated shares in Assura since 2012 and I agree with you that they are a well run rock solid outfit, but I personally do not think that anyone needs to rush in here even after the pull-back. I think that the share price will only start to rise once they announce a larger than expected increase in the quarterly dividend as the yield is only 3.8% currently. Brokers dividend forecasts for y/e 31 March 2016 are 2.05p and 2.26p for y/e 31 March 2017 so not exactly that exciting enough for a surge in the share price in the near term I would have thought. I am more than happy to continue to hold here given the average share price I bought at but I think the share price will only really motor if they become a 'takeover' target at some stage in the future and personally I think that could well happen.
shauney2: A big UT at the end knocked it down a bit more.Stops getting hit at the moment. Ideas? I see this as a long term hold for me so a bit sanguine although obviously not good to see the decline in the share price. See how the half year results are the end of September and add if i they are good.
hyperboreus: Wise words WirralOwl, the share price fall of late for me is not an issue as I have accumulated my shareholding in 'rock solid' Assura purely for the yield which for me is currently around 5%. I would imagine that the board will more than likely feel compelled to up the dividend at the latest in Jan 16 and in the meantime I cannot honestly see the share price doing a great deal as the current yield is only 3.7% at the current level of 2p per share.
hyperboreus: Hello eekorehc or should that be cherokee? I am sure you are not thick but a few things puzzle me about this so called 'downgrade' from BUY to HOLD by Liberum Capital. They issued this 'downgrade' very early this morning well before the presentation to investors and analysts at 11am. Incidentally the webcast available to view on the website, is as always with Assura well worth watching, around 34 minutes in duration, it tells you EVERYTHING you need to know about the guys running Assura whether you are a shareholder or contemplating investing in the Company. At the close of play today the share price is 49p which is 1p below the Liberum Capital target price of 50p, therefore they might argue why buy at this level when it has almost reached their target price but investing in Assura is not primarily about capital growth as I see it, the yield is attractive at 4%+ with the likelihood of increasing dividends down the line, the board seem pretty confident that the shackles are about to be loosened by NHS England, administrative costs are controlled by Assura's business model and the balance sheet has been considerably strengthened by the recent fundraising exercise last month. Interestingly the Liberum Capital representative at the presentation asked 3 questions at the end of the presentation by the 3 employees of Assura so as their house broker I find it very odd that they didn't hang fire before rushing out a 'downgrade'. I first invested in Assura early in 2012 when the share price was around 30p and am more convinced than ever that it was an excellent decision to do so. You will not get explosive growth from Assura but ANY balanced portfolio simply demands a stock pick such as AGR. Having said that I still think that Assura will get taken out sometime in the future as Invesco Ltd now hold 26.43% having sold out completely less than 12 months ago :-)
hyperboreus: We all seem to be singing from the same hymn sheet here which isn't surprising as I firmly believe that Assura are a class outfit. I too will be taking up my allocation plus a few more if any are available. Very interesting how the market makers artificially manipulated the share price late yesterday when the uncrossing trade went through at 46.75p in order for the following statement this morning: 'The Offer Price represents a discount of 6.95 per cent to the closing price of 46.75 pence per Existing Ordinary Share on 23 September 2014, being the last practicable day prior to the announcement of the Share Issue." Just for the record 12 minutes before close of play the mid-price was 45.75p. Lies,damned lies and statistics spring to mind :-)
wirralowl: Perhaps this is what's been putting pressure on the share price recently? Maybe with the 2 transactions this morning there's been a swap between institutions, as share price has just popped up a little? Whatever, I guess all will be revealed shortly...
