dogwalker: Judging by its pathetic share price performance, I'm beginning to think this company has one or two slow-down problems of its own. It appears to be stuck in the mud. No amount of wheel-spinning waffle about what other companies may or may not be doing, & about the economy at large, by a partner of the company, as per today's RNS, is going to help , I'm afraid. If anyone else has any news about the economy or the business climate in general, then of course it's always helpful seeing it posted here. It's such a quiet bb.
aleman: It looks like Begbies' markets picked up in Q1, although it is not entirely clear from this RNSed selection of information from the latest Red Flag report, which highlights a sharp rise in financial problems in a few sectors. Http:// The overall national picture can be picked up, however, in several media reports. They indicated the national total of companies in distress in all sectors rose 7% on the quarter and 8% on the same quarter last year, which indicates a significant reversal of trend following several years of decline. Http:// Nationally 296,054 businesses were experiencing ‘significant’ financial distress in the first three months of 2017, an increase of seven per cent on the previous quarter (276,518 businesses), and an increase of eight per cent on the same period last year. This explains why I've been seeing a lot of recruitment and poaching of staff recently in corporate recovery. The recent increase of companies in distress is also a trend that is likely to accelerate in Q2, given further Brexit/Sterling pressures and taxation and regulatory changes that hit the UK econmomy this spring, such as minimum wage, business rates, rising energy costs, car tax, benefits changes, a sharp reduction in local government support grant, tighter lending regulations - the list goes on and on. I expect Begbies Traynor to see a significant rise in demand for its services this year as the economy slows and I think recession is likely as 2017 progresses. Many consumer stocks are reporting slowdowns already in trading updates that cover Q4 and Q1.
aleman: According to Begbies Traynor's Red Flag Alert research for Q4 2016, which monitors the financial health of UK companies, 276,518 businesses were experiencing 'Significant' financial distress at the end of 2016; an increase of 3% compared to the same period last year (Q4 2015: 268,898 companies). On an annualised basis, the last time that 'Significant' distress fell year on year was in Q3 2013.
topvest: This company is doing OK in my view. The share price will start motoring as insolvencies start to increase. Whether you like it or not it's a FACT that we are now closer to this happening. It may be in the next year, 2-5 years away or longer...but it's coming! This share is one of the best contra cyclical companies that you can buy, if you take a contrarian view. Insolvency experts will be much busier than they are now sometime in the not too distant future given that insolvencies have been heading lower for 6/7 years.
mctmct: Something up? (other than the share price this morning)
speedsgh: Change of date of Half Year Results - HTTP:// Last minute change of date. Final figures not ready in time or something slightly more sinister (pushing results on to a Friday which is rarely a good sign)? I suppose we'll find out soon enough. Share price has certainly been weak since the summer.
topvest: Trading is still difficult by the sound of things. When conditions change then I would expect a sharp turnaround in the share price and trading position. One thing is for administrations will increase at some point!
daneswooddynamo: quiet here given the rather encouraging signs of life from the share price
c1d: Bonio, I don't disagree with your assertion that the insolvency market is (and has been) very quiet. But I believe that Begbies are extremely cheap, even in these quiet trading conditions, as their underlying trading is consistently profitable and they pay a great dividend which is well covered by earnings. This is just my opinion of course, but I think that their historic & forecast P/E ratios and dividend yield relative to the current share price makes them look extremely cheap in comparison to the rest of the market. I also expect the insolvency market to pick up at some point which will give a significant boost to their trading. In the meantime Caledonia are very close to clearing their remaining stake which will lift a weight that has been bearing down on the share price for months now. I very much appreciate your views on the state of the insolvency market which I am sure are 100% spot on, but in my opinion this is already more than factored into the share price. Regards
darwenlad: Paul, Thanks for response. Just checked the Top 200 companies in today's Sunday Times and only three companies (Evraz, Resolution and RSA Insurance) have yields higher than their p/es. Begbies Traynor's current valuation (6.3 % yield versus 5.8 PER) looks very much out of kilter. My big concern remains BEG's dividend. They held it this year but if the insolvency market continues to contract they could cut it again in a bid to strengthen BEG's balance sheet. Perhaps I am being unduly negative but I was badly caught out earlier this year by Morson, another Manchester company with a reaonably strong balance sheet, similar sort of yield and equally low P/E. It axed its dividend in order to "strengthen" its balance sheet, its share price halved, and in less than six months the Mason family, which owned circa 45% of the business, had taken the company private at close to the share price's all time low. As for Caledonia, it is one of the most lowly rated investment trusts which has massively under-performed the market over one and five years. A new management team is trying to turn round its miserable investment performance which has been hampered by having too many subscale investments. It is in the process of reducing the size of its core portfolio to 40-50 investments and has set itself a minimum threshold of £10m for new investments. CLDN's current 14.3% stake in BEG is worth around £4.5m which suggests that CLDN might want to get rid of it which could act as a potential drag on BEG's share price.
