|lord gnome: The dividend cut certainly wasn't obvious to me. I didn't see that one coming. Very disappointed as I bought these primarily for the yield (plus the very good prospect of share price recovery). I have now lost 60% of my income and what was a very decent paper profit has been whittled away to break-even. Not happy this morning. I will continue to hold in anticipation of a half decent share price performance over the next 12 months.|
|lord gnome: I would guess that we have a seller in the background feeding stock to the market, otherwise selling this light should not have had such an effect on the share price. As you say though, gleach, it has bought out the bargain hunters.|
|lord gnome: A little light selling seems to have driven down the share price quite quickly.|
|lord gnome: Thanks gleach. That dividend sounds very tasty, as does a 70p share price, yes please.|
|valhamos: One always thinks in these situations that there must be an underlying reason for the directors reducing their stake which means the share price is unlikely to increase in the short term. However I believe the last time there was a director placing/sale was when CAPD came to the market in 2010. The price was 61.5p and it proceeded to rise in the following year to over 100p.|
|rivaldo: Nice - Finncap have today increased their target price here to 70p (from 50p):
|deanowls: No debt, I believe share price covered by Nav near enough also! Divi to be raised?|
|valhamos: From today's update:
"Of particular encouragement was the award of multiple exploration contracts during the period, indicating early signs of a measured industry recovery. It is also important to note that the Company was awarded the majority of the exploration contracts it tendered for."
Looks well positioned for further recovery in the business and the share price.|
|troc1958: At CAPD share price of 31p market is discounting a huge slowdown in the resource exploration (& drilling) market. Did a quick (simplistic) financial review and 2013 forecast based on currently available figures.
My 2013 Revenue Forecast
Total (Avg no during year)Rigs for 2013 = 95
Capacity Utilisation = 75%
ARPOR (monthly) = £118,000 ($188,000)
Gross Revenue = £100.9 million
NPAT Margin = 11%
NPAT = £11.05 million
EPS = 8.21p
P/E = 3.78
[on a share price of 31p)
If Cap Util < 70%, ARPOR < by 20% and NPAT Margin < from 11% to 7.5% =
EPS = 4.34 and P/E 7.12 on a share price of 31p
Markets are treating CAPD very harshly|
