lord gnome: Sold out today. Forward PE of 18 looks stretched for a company that seems to be going nowhere fast. Only the yield seems to be lending support to the share price. One to watch until things improve.
tommy51: Nice write up in the Scotsman today , this is not the full article but a good summary : Electrocomponents latest trading update was awaited with some nervousness after disappointment from one of its principal competitors. However, this proved unduly cautious and the statement was reassuring. One recent development is DesignSpark, a website designed to bring together engineers. The service includes free software so its customers can design three-dimensional models for new systems and, once the design is completed, identify the serial numbers for each component, making it easy to order the parts. The recent setback in the share price has left Electrocomponents on an undemanding prospective price-to-earnings ratio of less than 12 and offering a dividend yield of close to 5 per cent. This could be an opportunity to conduct further research on a first class company at the core of global economic activity. Electrocomponents 239.3p -1.3p Scotsman says BUY
ukinvestor220: looks like the sell bots are still switched on ... when they break off it might spring back. The fall was related to PFL gloom, which this statement has now dismissed. 0710 GMT [Dow Jones]--Seymour Pierce upgrades Electrocomponents (ECM.LN) to buy from add, on valuation. Says the company's trading update Friday shows that the recent problems at rival Premier Farnell (PFL.LN) were of its own making and unrelated to a deterioration in market conditions. Says group revenue in the three months to June grew by 14%. Adds the group continues to gain market share from smaller competitors and reap the benefits of strategic initiatives. Says Electrocomponents' share price has fallen sharply on the Premier news, and now represent a strong buying opportunity. Shares +6.4% at 260p. (
electronica: With debt falling steadily & the dividends increased the market should adjust the share price so that ECM yields 3.5% (ish) over any future 12 months. With the FY2012 concensus divi forecast of 11.52p now looking very low then ECM should be at 340p+ within a few months. A great, solid company growing well with an excellent yield - what's not to like.
evox: Yes, pretty good under the circumstances Electrocomponents was the morning's biggest faller among FTSE 250 stocks after disappointing full-year results. Broker KBC Peel Hunt recommends selling the shares but professed itself impressed with the margin stablisation and 'the very strong free cash flow performance'. '£78m of free cash flow generation was a creditable performance (2008A £75m), and shows management is managing the company well into the downturn,' reckons KBC analyst Henry Carver. Nevertheless, the broker remains bearish on the stock, believing a share price multiple of around 15 times forecast earnings for fiscal 09/10 is too high. 'Our concern is that the return to growth could come later than the multiple suggests, with consensus forecasts flat for 2011E. Our 120p target price is based on a PE of 12x 2010E and our recommendation remains SELL,' Carver said, adding that the firm's preferred pick in the electronics distribution sector is Premier Farnell.
studhaves: Looking at the share price of these & PFL; ECM are on a PE of around 9.5, PFL on 19 !! What can we infer from that? They do the same thing, in the same industries, etc, etc, except ECM are the market leader with greater turnover & profitability! If we were to apply the same PE ratio to ECM, then you'd get a share price of 279. If we decided that PFL were over valued (& I dont think they are) & ECM undervalued & moved the 2 PEs to meet in the middle at 14.5, you'd get a share price of 213. If we applied the 9.5 PE to Farnell, they'd be at about 95p - clearly too low. So what do you think? Using the numbers & ratios above ECM must be undervalued by a significant margin - they should perhaps be at twice the price, but probably at least 50% higher. Any thoughts?
studhaves: Its especially strange that while ECMs share price is languishing, PFLs share price, who are in exactly the same business, selling exactly the same products, to exactly the same customers, in exactly the same markets, is doing really well. Very odd.
b0tman: What would the ECM share price need to be for the stock to yield the same as the FTSE 250?
botman begins: UPDATE, dividend yields as quoted in Aug 19 IC p40 were... FTSE 100 = 3.18% FTSE 250 = 2.49% FTSE 350 = 3.09% PFL .... = 5.10% (9p dividend at 176.5p price) based on above data, ECM share prices required to equate these yields (ie, 18.4p ECM dividend divided by above yields) are... FTSE 100 = 579p FTSE 250 = 739p FTSE 350 = 595p PFL .... = 361p above share price difference over current ECM price of 265... FTSE 100 = 118% FTSE 250 = 179% FTSE 350 = 125% PFL ..... = 36% ie, for ECM to have the same yield as FTSE350 it would need to rise 125%, or 36% to have the same yield as PFL
