lord gnome: Happy enough with the results and the way that the share price almost recovered to end flattish today. At this level they do look good value and that yield is enticing. This is a well-run company and I can see it prospering again as oil recovers. Happy to hold.
meijiman: Yes and now the share price is reacting. Probably analysts adjusting numbers post the results meeting.
martinc: Right thread.. but writing too quickly! "...nevertheless the [asia pacific] region as a whole is expected to be loss making for the full year" Overall order intake is 65% of the H1 last year. Asia Pacific order intake is only 18% of the corresponding period before! Though perhaps the expected loss is because of the reduced orders.. It'd be interesting to go back and see how good a predictor the reported order book is. Maybe I'll have a go at that if I get time. Down 35% worries me. At best it suggests that we're not going to see a big rise in the share price until orders start appearing, which presumably won't be until the current phase of sorting out the business internally is complete.
donny13: Anyone know the reason for the drop in share price?
wylecoyote: CR, Thanks... I don't like to offer tips as I'd rather do my own research. Still I am looking into VLX at the moment. Made a tidy sum on TCG(it is still on my watch list - a statement is due soon?). My only problem is knowing what to look for and identify potential recovery stories. CIU and TCG were complete flukes for me, but as soon as I did the research... They were recovery Now I realise that they offer superior gains to trying to find good, growing stocks at a decent price and share price momentum. Here, it has the potential to hit 4.50p(based on a technical basis). Fundamentally, and against the sector average, it is plausible at that price too.
bobsidian: Another classic case of a share climbing a wall of worry. The share price performance of LAM at the time and since it made its announcement about write downs is probably an interesting comparative. Buying CIU now takes some courage.
masurenguy: Mark Slater was not the only one to get caught out here and that is a rare event. Another respected stock analyst (anonymous to be fair to him) also felt misled by the comments made in the August 30th interims. ______________________________________________________________________________________________ Having analysed Cape, we felt it had excellent recovery potential. A key question that we asked was what are the chances that there is more bad news to come out? We thought it was unlikely. In coming to that conclusion, we felt we were entitled to rely on the statement in the interim report at the end of August: "With a strong order book giving good near-term visibility, the Board is confident of meeting recently revised expectations for the year ending 31 December 2012." Cape is a quality company so we had no reason to disbelieve this assertion. The statement was released after the warning about problems in the Pacific Rim region, therefore that bad news was already in the share price. It turns out that we were misled by the company's confidence. There was indeed more bad news to come. This morning, it was announced that there were "legacy issues" in respect of balance sheet valuations. Reading between the lines, it seems that the CEO was in turn misled by his finance director who "is standing down as Group CFO by mutual consent with immediate effect". We rarely get our recommendations that wrong but clearly we did in this case.
bobsidian: You never know. The more that is known, the less there is left to be known. And given that "kitchen sinking" is the intention, equity markets have a habit of looking past appalling results. However, if the shares of CIU stage yet another of its rebounds before the results are released for the full year then doubtless there will be another share price collapse on their release. An amazing share. LAM has barely recovered but it too has developed Lazarus like qualities at its comparatively lowly levels.
bobsidian: Next FTSE review not until beginning of September - so sufficiently distant to not be relevant. Doubtless the wild share price movements are accentuated by the relatively small free float. Would not be surprised to see the share price move up to test the £2 resistance level before moving lower.
the diddymen: Johngib, I think that the volatility of the share has a lot to do with the inability of the company to talk about its success. In trading terms it has had a phenominal run, but you would hardly realise it from the price and volatility. The current earnings can easily sustain the current share price and I would have thought that their market sector will sustain profitability over investors attention span. Having watched this company for many years I feel that the share price is in a holding position for 06/03/12. Even if management manage to dress up success as failure (standard fare), my instinctive feeling is a standstill in the price, while if they demonstrate that they can compound growth at 10-15% pa, there will be some upside. Nowt like waiting for Tuesday! TD
