bdroop: I decided to buy a small amount yesterday, with the view to building up a long term position. ( looking for the future dips ). Waterstones led by James Daunt is starting to gain ground against Amazon, HP has further activity - and with that activity the further promotion of the HP catalogue. It strikes me that Harry Potter is as powerful a consumer brand as PG Tips or any other well known trusted household product! So this point might be as good as any to invest, even though JKR retains her digital rights. The move to digital beyond trade publishing - and into "education" feels like a smaller publisher will feel the positive effects of this in the market more quickly than people like PSON ( who I watch closely, as I do US publisher Mifflin Harcourt - better "looking" than PSON right now? ) - digital should and will become fantastic for the publisher bottom line over the years. Physical books are holding up well. Concerns - using the cash from HP wisely on acquisition and expansion, in a true sense probably not efficiently, BMY is set up to be a cultural rather than cash machine, India is a very long term play ( although wisden and HP holding rights in India feels a good fit, but the retail prices in India won't mean much for the BMY bank balance, but maybe book rights acquired and exported out of India could come good ) USA is a tough market to operate in and I worry they may remain subscale. I'm interested in other holders thoughts and observations, as I intend to be here for a very long time now I've discerned a moment to invest, in the short term I believe the share price could go either way, but more likely up in a good "channel" but if the 2H disappoints then I'll have the chance to start topping up more quickly.

cellars: OK, the H1 PBT is much smaller than H2, but it is still some 8% ahead of what I was hoping for. I expect broker upgrades to sustain the share price momentum.

rainmaker: Thanks Protean, I noticed the dramatic pick in volume, as well. IMHO a very good sign of a prolonged and large increase in the share price. I expect 160p in short order but over the next 5 year, the top end of 500p to 1000p. Then we have the key or acute reversal on the weekly share price chart- free stock charts from uk.advfn.com regards

rainmaker: free stock charts from uk.advfn.com Everybody seems to looking for some magical explanation for the share price rise but I think the bull case for Bloomsbury is both very straight forward,easy to understand and very compelling that quite simply, it's the dramatic growth prospects for their digital sales(up 61% in last results)yet the Company has a no growth rating. If e-book sales are 9% of current turnover and the Company aims for 50% in five years then IMHO profits and the Company share price are going stratospheric if they can achieve that. Coincidentally I believe that in the States(they say what happens there, happens here 5 years later) e-book already account for more than half of sales so IMHO this isn't pie in the sky (unrealistic)stuff. Then you have research that states that readers buy more books in the digital format than paperback. E-book sales are beginning to reach critical mass where there're going to have a significant impact on the Company's profitability. Moreover it should be remembered that e-book sales have much higher margins that hardbacks ie no paper, no ink, substantially less distribution costs and frequently no plastic either as the publication is downloaded on line. The Company has no price competition because it obviously owns the copyright ie publishing rights. I'm sure that we will have not just rising profits but that the Company will attract a much higher rating of circa 20 times and more as Investors begin to understand the changes and the impact on it's profitability. Bloomsburys business model is fast evolving that will make it a more efficient, more productive and more profitable but the market hasn't picked up on this.Aside from e-book sales having higher margins there greater opportunities for selling content and more formats for selling that content ie e-books, collective on line rights ie licensing, access rights on line direct to the Consumer-there are so many opportunities for Bloomsbury to leverage their brand and their intellectual property. These changes have been known about for some time. This Company reminds me of Pace Microtechnology(PIC) before it rose 50/60 fold.I don't expect that to happen with Bloomsbury but I certainly believe the share price will go to £5, perhaps £10 for reasons already explained.The huge demand for digital set boxes was known and public knowledge at the very depths of the share price and it's the same for Bloomsbury Publishing. The Stockmarket is supposed to be efficient in the semi strong sense that all publicly available information is instanteously and automatically reflected in the share prices of all Companies but I've never subscribed to that view. That's exactly the way I see it AIMHO, DYOR

rainmaker: In Value Investing for every Record(REC)up over 230% in 8 months there is a Bloomsbury Publishing(BMY)which even though I've taken advantage of dips to add more, I'm only up circa 7% in over two years but there's also a big dividend to take into account so I reckon my overall return is maybe 15% so 7% pa compound.That's no disaster. In Value Investing you have to accept the rough with the smooth.Things won't always go to plan-you have to be both very tenacious and resilient-able to deal with whatever the market throws at you. Although having said that there aren't too many surprises. In Value Investing,your winners will be spectacularly successful because the market will have suddenly decided their business does have a value and there're also rising from historically and relatively very low levels, (nb....if you allow your positions to run) and typically your disappointments will just be,well disappointments and not unmitigated disasters.Value Investing is the only stock market technique to really focus on downside risk. A friend of mine is privy to all my dealings and he remarked the other day not just on the spectacular successes but also losers that were basically worth what I paid from them. Sometimes it seem like magic-you finish your buying and the share price climbs and climbs and climbs yet other times you will really have to grind out your returns. regards

rainmaker: Montyville-I did some research on this very point and discovered that judging by previous years share price performance, the best time to buy shares in Bloomsbury was May. regards

rainmaker: Watching Bloomsbury Publishing(BMY) which has just gone 140.75p. Given huge growth from e-book sales, the proceeds of those windfall profits being invested in further earnings enhancing acquisitions and BMY's current rock bottom rating x 11.6 but going back 12 years the rating has varied between 14 and 21 times on average, and that explosive growth continuing for several years(as we catch up with the USA)I can only see a sharply higher share price short term, and longer term for that matter.I think this is an opportunity where shareholders can easily create their luck by just holding for the next 2/3 years because the e-book boom is a simple and compelling story I think there's a very good chance that BMY's rating will go sky high, maybe 40 times earnings and the institutions pile in together but only when the share price has risen a few pounds first. regards

rainmaker: 'Kindle eBooks now outselling print in the UK, says Amazon' wow, what can I say, The UK is catching up the USA rapidly.Remember in the UK it's 5% of the total but in the US it's 23%. This should send the share price to at least 160p short term-ie IMHO weeks. The CEO sold £124k worth of sales today but I think some perspective is needed as he still retains 1.374mln or 1.86% worth £1.8mln.I think generally Investors in the UK are too hung up on directors purchases/sales it's almost as though some Investors won't buy unless they see the Directors buying as well.What do they want a RNS from the CEO saying their shares are chronically undervalued and the share price is going to 10 bag? Ok admittedly, the Directors should have a better idea of the current performance of their company but does it mean they can more accurately value it than you or I?Something to ponder. I suppose what I'm saying is that Investors need to put these things into greater context.If you have a company where demand has collapsed and the share price has lost 97% of it's value involvedin a highly cyclical industry and suddenly several directors are buying you would surely want to know. Well, I told you and the company is CML Microsystems(CML)and the share price has 12 bagged over the last two a bit years. regards

rainmaker: Just looking at the implications on future earnings for the sale of the German subsidiary- Year Ending Profit (£m) EPS P/E PEG EPS Grth. Div Yield 29-Feb-12 6.34 8.58p 14.1 0.5 +29% 4.96p 4.1% 28-Feb-13 7.23 9.79p 12.4 0.9 +14% 5.30p 4.4% 28-Feb-14 7.90 10.70p 11.3 1.2 +9% 5.70p 4.7% If we look at the previous trading update Bloomsbury stated that their trading for the then current year(ending 29 Feb 2012) and next, was in line with market expectations. If we add £600k annual losses of their German subsidiary to the forecast for years 2013 and 2014 we get the following- 2013 £7.83mln so adjusted eps is 7.83/7.23 x 9.79eps=10.60p 2014 £8.60mln so ajusted eps is 8.60/7.90 x 10.70eps=11.50p So prospective earnings of 11.4 times for 2013, falling to 10.5 in 2014. Since we are at the beginning of March (Co's year end is 28 Feb)we can say that the growth in earnings per share is 10.60/8.58 x 100=23.5% and the prospective p/e (current share price of 121 divided by 2013 adjusted earnings)of 10.60p is 11.40 times so a PEG of 0.48 To adjust the current share price of 121p to get a fairly rated share price(in terms of PEG)we have to multiple the current share price of 121 by 1/0.48= 252p, nearly twice the current share price. IMHO short term,the share price is going substantially north of current levels regards
