h1a3: I think the MM's have been keeping the share price down to facilitate today's 3 very big buys of circa 450K. I am expecting CCT to be issuing a RNS tomorrow and if that happens, I would expect the share price to rise.
orange1: Is the company trying to say in today´s announcement ( that it would like to buy back more shares but is hamstrung by the rule that it cannot on any one trading day buy more than 25% of the average daily volume?
tromso1: "A breakout above the 535p key resistance level would also confirm the multi-month share price consolidation period is over, a signal well worth following in my view. Trading on a bid-offer spread of 510p to 525p, I rate Character's shares a strong buy and have a fair value price range between 625p and 675p. Buy." Http://
mcartdon: Since the board have sought and have gained permission to buy back shares, with the cash production of the company, and the very low cost of borrowing why is it that they have not followed through? eps is the goal. The purchase of 4 million shares would add 20% to eps and the cost would be absorbed by cash production over 3 years. The return to shareholders would be very good at low cost. they obviously have instead used the capital within the business , cutting debt and investing in new product, after months of share consolidation the results of that investment should start shining through. mm are short of shares and we are on the cusp of new progress towards six pounds in the share price now overdue, seven to eight pounds would not be overdoing it
mattafc: His nakedness helping the share price along!!
squibno1: Character Options is reporting an out of this world start for the launch of its Clangers collection Just a week after the launch of the new Clangers toy collection, both in-store and online pre-sales have been huge and feedback from retailers has been exceptional, Character Options has revealed. The amount of fans flocking to stores to get their hands on the first pink characters has prompted many retailers to begin reordering immediately. “We are delighted to see our Clangers toys on shelf and the resulting consumer reaction to them,” said Jerry Healy, Character Options’ Marketing Director. “Sales in the first week have been incredibly strong and we expect to see even better numbers once the full range rolls out later this month. “The success is not entirely unexpected however, having seen all the work that Coolabi has put behind the launch of the TV series and the resulting level of viewing figures that has seen the Clangers reach the number one children’s spot in just a few weeks.” not sure when the above was reported. hopefully momentum on this and Teletubbies sales might start soon to have some impact on the current stationary share price.
thorpematt: Character Group plc with EPIC/TICKER LON:CCT had its stock rating noted as ‘Reiterates217; with the recommendation being set at ‘BUY’ this morning by analysts at Panmure Gordon. Character Group plc are listed in the Consumer Goods sector within AIM. Panmure Gordon have set their target price at 635 GBX on its stock. This would indicate that the analyst believes there is a potential upside of 30.3% from today’s opening price of 487.5 GBX. Over the last 30 and 90 trading days the company share price has increased 7.5 points and decreased 29.3 points respectively.
saucepan: FWIW: I like CCT and have done well out of it. However: CCT now has a high Slater PEG - currently 3.84, according to ShareScope. I moved on from CCT a few weeks ago, mainly for this reason. There are plenty of other stocks with far more attractive PEGs, with an equally exciting or better investment outlook. Technically, it could be argued that the share price has either topped out or, at best, is in a major consolidation phase. Having said that, if the price does now break to the upside - it might make up for lost time.
h1a3: See below a positive article written today by Simon Thompson of Investors Chroncile. Running profits on a playful investment Shares in the fourth largest distributor of toys in the UK, Character Group Character Group PLC (CCT:LSE) (CCT:505p), hit my target price of 525p ahead of a pre-close trading update this week which confirmed the company will hit analysts expectations for the fiscal year to end-August 2015. Full-year pre-tax profits are forecast to jump by more than half to £11m, based on a 15 per cent rise in sales of £113m in the 12-month period. In turn, expect adjusted EPS to increase from 25.2p to 41.9p and support a 35 per cent hike in the divided to just shy of 9p a share. The financial results are due to be released in the first week of December so will make for a good read as should the update on current trading. That's because I understand on the grapevine that there has been a positive reception to The Clangers toy range (launched in the UK in July), and the Clever Keet toy from Character's Little Live Pets range is being tipped by a number of industry commentators to become a Top 10 toy and a best seller over Christmas. Investors are also likely to focus on the re-launch of Teletubbies to our screens in January and the likely positive contribution from these ranges to Character's profits in the current financial year to end August 2016. So with Character's shares rated on a reasonable 12 times' earnings for the fiscal year just ended, and offering a dividend yield north of 2 per cent, I feel there is scope for the share price rally to continue and take-out my 525p target price. Joint house broker Allenby Capital has a target price of 575p, or 15 per cent above the current share price. If you followed my previous advice to buy the shares ('Playtime', 1 June 2015) I would run your healthy profits.
gargleblaster: And here it is!! Running profits on a playful investment Shares in the fourth largest distributor of toys in the UK, Character Group (CCT: 500p), have risen by about 20 per cent in the two months since I initiated coverage ('Playtime', 1 June 2015), and are now approaching my 525p target price. The price move is fully justified, too, as I strongly feel that the company will at the very least increase full-year pre-tax profits by more than half to £11m, based on a 15 per cent rise in sales of £113m in the 12 months to end-August 2015, as forecast by analysts Peter Smedley at Charles Stanley Stockbrokers, and Myles McNulty at Allenby Capital. On this basis, expect adjusted EPS to rise from 25.2p to 41.9p in the 12-month trading period and underpin a 35 per cent rise in the divided to just shy of 9p a share. So with the shares priced on a bid-offer spread of 485p-500p, the prospective PE ratio is 12 and the forward yield is 1.8 per cent. That's hardly punchy for a company that has developed a portfolio of long-lasting iconic toy brands, both organically and by acquisition, targeting the niche pre-school market. Character may even surpass those estimates when it releases a pre-close trading update around Tuesday, 8 September. I am not the only one thinking this way as at the time of the half-year results Mr Smedley at Charles Stanley noted that "we have a high and increasing level of confidence that our 2015, 2016 and 2017 estimates can be upgraded over the next three to 12 months, giving further scope for continued substantial share price outperformance". The launch of a range of toys to coincide with the return of cult children's classic The Clangers to the BBC on CBeebies after 43 years, is just one product that could lead to an earnings beat. Character's product range for Yummy Nummies, an innovative new children's 'food play' collection, whereby ingredients are used to make mini versions of everyday food, such as pizza and cookies, is another. And it will be interesting to find out how sales of Character's range of Teletubbies toys have fared since launch in June. CBeebies has been airing repeats, but a new series of 61 episodes has been commissioned by the Teletubbies brand's owner, DHX Media, and Character has been appointed 'Global toy partner'. So ahead of the pre-close trading update, I would continue to run your bumper profits. Charles Stanley has a target price of 540p and Allenby Capital has a target of 575p, but I can see scope for both to be raised if Character beats its aforementioned profit estimates. Run profits.
