speedsgh: imranawan - Think we're probably of a like mind. I'm fairly relaxed + expect to see continued share price weakness in the short/medium term. Doubtless there'll be an opportunity for botty fishers in due course although I don't have a rod or net so probably won't be taking part. Likely to stick with those remaining from previous expeditions :o)
leedskier: My take, for what is worth, is that the capital requirements rules which were imposed by the EU in 2011, but which are fully supported by the BoE, see today's FT which reports the BoE saying that post brexit the rules will if anything be tougher, changed the game for these small cap/AIM brokers/market makers. Now it is all about risk management not risk taking. They aim to run flat books. The consequence being that there is no technical liquidity being offered by these banks, leading to price volatility, usually to the downside.That is clear from a glance at the charts of the O&G companies. These banks cannot complain that these companies are not raising money in the capital markets when their shares are trading at less than 5% of their price 5 years ago, nor that investors have simply given up with this segment of the market.Britain's decision to leave the EU is irrelevant to the share price of an O&G company, paid in $. If anything the weaker £ should have boosted the attraction of these companies.
speedsgh: hi imranawan. yes, the directors have substantial holdings so it provides some reassurance that their interests should be aligned with shareholders. in fact their "eat-what-you-kill" performance-related strategy means that the whole company is incentivised to improve things. the performance-related strategy also helps to maintain profitability even when revenues drop substantially (as they have just done) as costs tend to fall away just as quickly. we all know that CNKS operate in a highly cyclical sentiment-driven sector so periods like they are currently experiencing are to be expected. whilst i am not planning to add at current levels for personal reasons, i suspect that those who do will see a decent return on their investment over a 3-5yr timeframe. the average dividend over the last 5yrs has been 11.1p. if replicated that would of course given a very decent yield at the current share price (100p) over the period. even half that return is not to be sniffed at in the current low-interest-rate environment. and who knows how long that will last? PS - i find the following website quite useful for analysing director shareholdings + recent director trades for various companies. HTTP://
speedsgh: Some possible work in the pipeline for Cenkos following this announcement on Friday by SKIL Ports & Logistics (SPL). Cenkos are currently Nomad + broker to SPL... HTTP:// "The Board currently estimates that to complete the Karanja Terminal in line with its preferred specification £36 million of additional funding is required. The Company can confirm that it has instructed advisers to commence work on a proposed placing and open offer (the "Fundraising") to assist with meeting this funding requirement. There can be no certainty that the Fundraising will proceed, nor as to the quantum, pricing, or timing of any such Fundraising."
quepassa: oh. wow! Yikes. That goes to the heart of their problem. Quindell matters a great deal in my view.. They have as a consequence been badly slapped on the wrists by the FCA and fined £half-a-million and the affair has in my opinion badly dented their reputation. It has been catastrophic in my opinion for their share price and what are the chances of major mandates from companies like AA in the Main Market for the periods to come after the FCA findings? They had done such a good job in promoting themselves up the rankings and league tables and reputational scale - and now so much of that has just as a consequence been thrown away in my opinion. ALL IMO. DYOR. QP
jbat: Keith - shorting AIM shares, whilst not unheard of, is a bit of a mug's game. It's much easier to the move the SP, it's true, but they're so illiquid that there's a fine line between shorting and market manipulation. In particular, shorting CNKS is like juggling with dynamite - yes, you might take 10p, 20p, perhaps more on your short, but they announce a really big deal and the share price might easily pop 50p north. Good way to get absolutely shafted, and the ensuing short squeeze would make it even worse. There are much better shorting opportunities out there if that's your thing.
imranawan: keith95 - the MMs may well be playing games, but I'm not sure many people are likely to be shorting CNKS. IF they pull off a decent sized deal the share price is likely to respond. Given the cash on the balance sheet, and chance they may pull off a deal or two - why would someone choose to short the stock? There are much better shorting opportunities out there on mid to large caps. BWFDIK.
bozzy_s: Looking extremely cheap now. Everything except the QPP link is bullish. Dividend yield 11%, P/E of 4, fully funded, no debt, cash generative, track record of profitability and good financial performance (but poor share price performance). It might be time for the company to dip into it's reserves and buy back it's own stock on the market. Opportunity has presented itself due to their involvement in QPP, which I can't imagine being a company-ender for CNKS. If they can address the poor share price performance I'd be a buyer. Whether that's more market updates, hiring a PR firm, buying back stock, re-iterating dividend intentions, I don't mind, as long as the shares begin to trade in a more realistic range given profitability/dividend/cash/NTAV etc.
speedsgh: CNKS share price looking at best listless, at worst sickly. Saving grace is that recent volume has been low. CNKS have never been the best communicators + we currently find ourselves in the midst of a news vacuum. There's been no news since the interims in Sept save the Tender Offer news in Dec in which no reference was made to current trading. That vacuum should of course be filled when they release Final Results (probably end of March). I am hoping for no more than a steady ship when news does arrive + a final dividend payment no less than that made last year.
sweet karolina: Whether you like TW or hate him, the QPP bulls have shown how silly it is to ignore or dismiss him. TW is after a number of failing Nomads, Cenkos are high on his list. It would ba madness not to take a regular interest in what TW is saying, Share Prophets is free to sign up to and does not generate as much span as some other sites. There must be a reason for the sharp break in uptrend of CNKS share price from late Sept may be the QPP scandal is part of it or maybe that effect is still to come as class action prospects hot up.
