bakunin: Paddyfool You may well be right. But the market is one big psychological game. A beaten-down company's share price will often begin to rise while the last remaining bad news trickles out. With results due in a few days, this is obviously an attempt to get a base built in the share price. Interesting to see how the psychology works out. After all, it is still a company with £500m+ PBT and a market cap of £3.3bn. And it is in a secular growth sector once it gets its house sorted out.
mj19: Is this over-sold, or what?Since the beginning of 2016, Capita's share price has plummeted by around 60% as the firm issued a series of disappointing trading updates. Neil Woodford, a big holder of Capita shares, summed up the situation in his fund's end-of-year review, saying market confidence in the firm has been undermined and that he and his investment team have been, "disappointed and surprised" by the firm's apparent vulnerability to weaker trading in its more cyclical operations.Indeed, at today's 505p share price, we can now pick up Capita shares on a forward price-to-earnings (P/E) ratio of just below nine, which stands in contrast to the double-figure rating of the last few years. The dividend yield looks attractive, too, running just over 6%. Maybe these shares are a bargain?Neil Woodford thinks the effect of the firm's weakness in trading has been magnified by a general perception that the company's balance sheet must be stretched because profits have fallen. But he points out that the directors announced the disposal of Capita's asset services division, which could help to allay investors' fears about the balance sheet.Mr. Woodford is keeping faith with Capita, believing that the market over-reacted to the firm's profit warnings. He reckons, "The share price now profoundly undervalues the fundamental long-term attractions of this business." He could be right, but I'm not betting with him on this occasion because I believe that better options exist on the London stock market and it's not worth taking the risk on a company that has just demonstrated its ability to surprise on the downside.Turbulence ahead (probably)Meanwhile, the sheer volatility of EasyJet's shares and profit record demonstrates how vulnerable out-and-out cyclical firms are to changes in economic circumstances. Whether it's unstable fuel prices, the effects that terrorism has on demand for the firm's services, a general economic slowdown, or volcanoes erupting, there always seems to be something buffeting the fortunes of airline companies.EasyJet's share price has been a wreck since it looked unassailable during 2014, and everything that we might have learned about the futility of investing in airlines seems to be coming true, and it's impossible to tell what might happen next for the company. The firm's dividend yield runs just over 4%, but I reckon investors need to be selective when it comes to investing in high-yielding stocks. So EasyJet joins Capita on my 'avoid' list.Are you aiming for a million?Dividend-led investing is a great way to capture the power of compounding and features as step six in The Motley Fool team's useful research document called Ten Steps To Making A Million In The Market, which delivers time-tested advice about how to make share investments really work for you.Take the next step on your journey to a million, by clicking here, and making the report part of your toolkit.

essentialinvestor: If the CPI price is ... way below the intrinsic value of the business, 2% of the fund appears quite a modest position imv. Unless Woodford has a long list of other companies even further below intrinsic value.
mj19: Woodford IM: 'Owning Capita was a mistake...but we've added to the holding'By Beth Brearley 18th January 2017 3:08 pmNeil WoodfordWoodford Investment Management's Mitchell Fraser-Jones admits it was "a mistake" to invest in Capita in 2016, with the share price more than halving over the course of the year.However Fraser-Jones, head of communications at Woodford IM, says the team recently increased the Capita holding in the £9.5bn Equity Income fund to "[take] advantage of the depressed share price". At the end of November, the fund held 2.18 per cent in Capita.In the December Equity Income fund update, Fraser-Jones says the market has overreacted to Capita's profit warnings and they are maintain their conviction in the long-term prospects for the firm.He says: "With the benefit of hindsight, it has been a mistake to own Capita shares within the portfolio over the last 12 months – that is evident in the fact that its share price has fallen from over £11 per share at the start of 2016 to below £5 per share at times during December."However, it is critical that we do not compound that mistake through an emotional reaction to the disappointment of the share price fall. Our view is that the market has overreacted – to an extent, understandably – to this series of negative trading updates. In turn, this has driven Capita's share price way below the intrinsic value of the business."In the firm's year in review, Neil Woodford admitted he is disappointed with the UK Equity Income fund's performance in 2016 as it failed to achieve the high single digit returns it had been aiming for.The fund returned 3.3 per cent for the one-year period ended 31 December compared to 16.8 per cent in the FTSE All Share. The previous year it had delivered a more exceptional 16.3 per cent compared to 1 per cent in the All Share.
ganthorpe: Looks really high risk with a Balance Sheet of £1.9BN of borrowings and £2.9BN of intangibles. They are predicting the CAS disposal in H2 2017 which is quite a while away and look as if they are expecting about £500M for it. The £515M adjusted pre tax Profit forecast covers the dividend in theory , but then there will be the usual adjustments plus presumably write offs which could be sizeable out of the £2.9BN intangibles. A kitchen sink job could look really nasty.And a new Chairman who is an Accountant. I think the present share price under 500P is about right , but I'm out and staying out.
paddyfool: Doesn't look good. Their non-organic approach is dead now as the share price doesn't have the multiple which enables them to be accretive anymore. As a result the growth has to be organic, so the announcement was only stating the obvious. Capita will struggle on the organic growth front as they have for sometime. The fact that they are looking to sell their asset management business will send warning signals to all future large customers who will have at the back of their minds the possibility of Capita not being the ultimate owner. Until now this was the safe bet.Add the turmoil in the customer base and a set of restructures, it's not hard to get to a very negative view and the liklehood of more bad news to come. The sale to beef the balance sheet is an opened negative story.
mj19: No technical support in sight for Capita until 400p, technical analyst saysAlexander Bueso | Sharecast | 08 Dec, 2016 10:57 - Updated: 11:17 | | | Technical analysts at Digital Look described Capita´s technical backdrop as dire after the company cut its guidance one again, sending shares crashing lower."Taking away the odd bounce in the shares here and there the share price trend in Capita is very bearish. Towards the end of September it left behind a large 'bearish gap' at 952.9p which is now its main area resistance and lies far away," Digital Look technical analyst Jose Maria Rodriguez said.It´s not at all easy to analyse a stock which is this bearish, especially after having lost a key level of technical support at 600p, which has now turned into resistance, he added.The outlook was little improved even if one stepped back and looked at the share price trend since the lows reached in 2002, given that the 61.8% Fibonacci retracement level had also given way.There was no clear technical support in view until 400p, Rodriguez concluded."When a stock drops this sharply, anything is possible."
gwatson56: Extracts from Neil Woodford mid Oct Note ....... "We have met the management to delve more deeply into the issues that the company faces and are reassured that the company is already doing some of the things it needs to do in order to restore the business to a healthier growth trajectory," "Although the market is clearly worried about the sustainability of Capita's dividend and the prospect of a dilutive rights issue, we are confident that the dividend is safe and that an equity issue will not be required." "We added slightly to the holding towards the end of the month at a very depressed share price level." Have things changed so much in six weeks..?
patientcapital: Sends a poor signal when just 2.42% of someone's base salary is invested in the business.

mj19: Capita Coming in as the ninth largest holding in Woodford's fund (2.94% of the fund) is another lesser known stock, Capita (LSE: CPI), which specialises in business process outsourcing and professional services for public and private sector clients. Another company with a consistent track record, Capita has seen its revenue grow from £2,744m in FY2010 to £4,674m in FY2015, a compounded annual growth rate (CAGR) of 11.2% and its share price enjoyed an excellent run between 2012 and 2015, rising from around 600p to over 1,300p in three years. However in February this year, the company's shares fell to a two-year low after it announced that both the value of its bid pipeline and the average length of its contracts had fallen, and the share price has continued to drift lower since, now down almost 14% year-to-date. An update in May revealed that the company had enjoyed a "solid start to the year" and with the stock trading on an undemanding P/E ratio of 14.1 times next year's earnings, with a dividend yield of 3.1%, it might be worth following in Neil Woodford's footsteps and buying on share price weakness.
