A nice share price increase here over the last month. I didn't expect the rise to be so quick and steep...

1K Conroy comes to mind (that's an AAZ reference for anyone unsure). Hopefully they're looking at something more meaty as well - a producing miner somewhere.

The time to strike was late last year / early this year when metal prices were low, operating costs high, and therefore bargains to be found.

At least their existing mines are making decent money. Enough to potentially add 50% to the share price in favourable times.

Surprised CAML share price is down at this level given the price of copper, lead and zinc.

arieljcohen - I'd put some of the weakness down to increased overheads / running costs. Fuel and salaries would've increased by over 10%, maybe closer to 20%, while the price of CAML's metal has fallen slightly.

For me it's just a short-term blip. Should still be profitable and cash generative. Will continue to pay a dividend - probably trimmed slightly. And they're definitely looking for an acquisition - Zangdook's link is an interview with the boss looking at opportunities in South Africa.

Wouldn't mind them taking a peek at SLP. They're a massively undervalued South African base metals miner. Similar situation to CAML - profitable, debt free, cashflow positive, paying dividends. But their shares are down 50% in the past year. Current market cap £140m. Maybe could be bought for £200m - £250m cash + debt + CAML shares?

Cu doing better. I loaded up a few more. share price should hopefully start to edge back-up.

If Cu holds above 3.65 that will be pretty positive for a Cu baseline price.

Then we should all start to feel more secure about that divi and a share price increase.

All the metals are subject to the dollar, and ultimately caml share price performance. It's unlikely the dollar can remain this strong long term. Key driver is interest rates, which will likely be stuck for a while with sticky inflation. Gobal conflicts are threatening, much like...01/02, the dollar put in a double top and then declined for 2 years. Could well be a similar pattern forming here. A direction of travel resolving conflicts and decreasing interest rates and inflation is the environment all markets want to see right now, but as with most things patience is needed.

Thanks Zho, worked for me.

Here's a copy / paste. Credit to Alex Hamer on Investors' Chronicle website:

"Central Asia Metals (CAML) is successful in its niche of well-run brownfield operations that were bought at good prices. Management is now adding a new string to its bow: exploration. The company has looked for a third project for years after adding the Sasa mine to its original asset Kounrad in 2017.

It is keen to keep shareholders updated on this process, too, telling them about 22 acquisition options reviewed in the first half and three site visits. Finding a happy price for these assets is the trouble, given the strong outlook for metals like copper boosting prices and current cost of debt making them less affordable.

The exploration effort will be focused on Kazakhstan, where Kounrad is located.

The present operations generated Ebitda of $49mn (£39mn) in the first half, down a third on the first half of 2022. This was largely because of weaker prices but higher labour and power costs also contributed. CAML is also in the midst of a transition underground at the Sasa operation to a new mining method, where tailings are used back in the mine to reinforce workings. This comes after a tailings dam spill at the mine in 2020.

CAML will sling over 80 per cent of its free cash flow to shareholders for the interim payout of 9p a share, double the proportion from last year above its 30-50 per cent payout policy, although the timing of tax payments knocked the free cash figure. The payout is 29 per cent ahead of RBC's forecast.

The company’s yield is way up given its weak share price, which has underperformed its basket of metals (a 21 per cent drop against a 3 per cent drop for the metals). Investors also met the higher interim payout with a shrug. We would add at this price. Buy."

CAML share price kind of annoying at the moment !!
Posted at 25/7/2023 09:06 by pughman
A year ago on 25.7.22 the CAML share price was £2.41, with the FTSE at 7306, net cash of $45.6m and their pool of metals per tonne totalling $12,447. Today the share price is £1.81, FTSE 7680, net cash $50.6m and metals adding to $13,080 per tonne. Feels like there is value here that the market is overlooking.

"Nigel will also address the Company's recent share price performance."

...I wonder what he will say about the share price?

CEO's normally say they concentrate on running the company well and let the share price look after itself.
