|rj1970: Hi, I've been a shareholder in chime since 2001. The share consolidation about seven or so years ago was a bit painful (my holding suddenly becoming five times smaller, albeit the share price rising (and then falling again!)). I've got no experience of buying and selling shares, I've just held on to em waiting for a chime buyout by wpp someday. Anyway, ny question: Will there be any recognition to shareholders who held shares pre consolidation, in any way? Wishful thinking, but thought might as well ask you guys as you'd know. Thanks!!|
|lennonsalive: Sale of part of the PR business for £19.6m, as per business strategy
However that is made up of £14.9 million cash and the rest in shares of the business they sold it too.
Disposal of 8% of the business on the cheap then, as 8x 2011 profit.
Is this the reason the dip in share price?
Intrested in others opinions here.
with the cash of 14.9m and cash held so far, total = £21.8 million on mcap of £122m|
|grigor: LONDON (SHARECAST) - "Another share that has caught my eye is Chime Communications, a media agency with interests in public relations, advertising and sports marketing. Whereas the company´s profits have grown steadily for several years, the share price is similar to where it stood in October 2009. This puts the shares on a projected price-to-earnings (p/e) ratio of 7 for 2012, versus an industry average of 9.4. A gap of this magnitude suggests potential for a price gain of one-third to reach the industry average. I believe these shares are significantly undervalued. Advertising firm WPP apparently agrees. It has been a steady buyer and holds 17% of all outstanding shares. A bid for the rest cannot be ruled out," says David Schwartz in the Financial Times´ Weekend Edition.|
|darlocst: Kimball808 - relax. I don't know where the revenue forecasts are coming from but they are erroneous. All key metrics were up at the HY and full year revenue will be coming in at or above the £300m mark. Consensus forecasts look achievable (pbt £31.4m & EPS 26.7p) if there is no significant deterioration across the industry in general.
Read the interim presentation for reassurance:
The share price is down due to the poor outlook for the PR division (the US gov. is cutting spending with Chime), general sector sentiment and clearly there is a holder who is looking to cut/exit his position with a lack of buyers around.
Some people think this is a replay of 2008 and back then the PR companies share prices got smashed so clearly they are looking to sell out ASAP. Personally I don't believe that its going to get that bad plus Chime's balance sheet is now a lot stronger.
I sold my position in CHW back in March around the 270p level. At the current price its starting to becoming interesting again and its back on my watchlist.|
|whilstev: Some strange trading this morning. Someone appears to be dripfeeding small quantities into the market. Possibly trying to manipulate the share price?|
|davidosh: Blimey the last ten posts have all been about breakouts and the share price !!
Do any of you guys look at what the company does ? Changes within the board ? Results of companies within the same sector ? etc etc
I fear I am locked in a cell with nobody to talk to especially with mention of breakouts !!|
|grigor: Your welcome Simon
Rockafella, I'm experiencing deja vu!
Share price stuck in a trading range / About time for a breakout|
|jolomo: Anyone got any views about the poor share price performance this year. Have to admit a bit baffled by the lacklustre showing since results as I read them as positive.|
|jimbowler: Some very strange trading today.
With a bid price of 172 pence available somebody then puts in an ask price of 165 pence. That's knocked a couple of pence off the share price.|
|notaclue: Well CHW have already put out another good statement which is excellent for the current ecomomic cycle...the total dividend alone from the company amounts to over 5% per year at current share price...they're progressing profits and dividend at the moment and have no debt...nice position to be in...hopefully no bidding war for Next Fifthteen as don't want to overpay!
I think the pull back is just profit taking and the Next Fifthteen unknown!?
Am holding :D|
