|Shareprice has increased by nearly 17% over the past month. Is this just a vote of confidence in new CEO Paul Forman, who bought 25,000 shares at 433p just over a week ago, or are they just riding the coat tails of the recent pre-Christmas FTSE rally?|
|Looks like a technical position is developing here ....... probably driven by short closing ahead of the year end. The share price hasn't been this firm since the first profit warning announcement.|
|Still overvalued staying out for the time.|
|tsmith2, Sorry. I just noticed your early question in Posting #46. It was a replay facility available for 30 days: http://uk.advfn.com/stock-market/london/essentra-ESNT/share-news/Essentra-plc-Trading-Update/71690372
ESNT is one of the stocks on my Watchlist but every time I listen to C. Day, I'm put off by his style of talking.|
|Yes just seen, thought I had missed an opportunity last week.|
|Just the worst news possible this morning.|
|Yes just noticed, may be have been braver and bought a small amount, hey ho.|
|Plenty of buying today and yesterday lets see.|
|Its bouncing on the back of todays election result.
Back to 500p in no time.|
|The problem is that if you look at the metrics it is not really that cheap even after a large fall so I'm not sure that it is particularly attractive for T/O yet.
I am keeping a close eye but as I said before I wont take a stake until I see the next update.|
|Sal, was tempted last week on the dip below 4.70,
and we are again near those level, however it may pay to wait just IMV.
I do not see any of the non execs or Chairman adding to holdings at these levels,
excluding dividend reinvestments.
Might be an outside possibility of a bid, perhaps an overseas
buyer given GBP weakness coupled with the share price near these levels, that's just speculative.|
|everything is getting mauled this morning!|
|Getting mauled atm.|
|I can see the potential for an eventual recovery in the SP,
however this looks a complex group to manage, just IMV.
Take a look at the number of manufacturing sites the business operates from
as just one measure of complexity.|
|Great news on new CEO Paul Forman. Part of the slide in share price was attibuted to current CEO wanting to leave. The credentials of this new guy look good so not surprising on share price bounce. Obviously until he starts delivering real growth the jury will be out, but this looks a good start.|
|This has been quite a roller coaster with the recent fall almost to 470p and now a powerful rally back up to 514p so far. Good recent buy from Standard Life, 2.5 million shares. Share price suggests that this is still a good recovery option and currency tailwinds should help further
Looking at the chart these have bottomed out three times and been able to recover quite quickly each time.If the businness can now stabilise and start the path to growth again then a good recovery in the share price should follow
I have just checked last 6 RNS holding announcements and they show that Standard Life have increased holding from 26.2 to 34.2 million shares, so a really huge endoresment from them.|
|Quite a drop today, down 14.6p to 497p. Is there some news out or is someone trying to drive the price down before Thursday 6.3p Ex divi
Close of business RNS - despite share price falling all day Standard Life have picked up 257k shares. Guess they fancy the divi !|
|Its undervalued full stop but no for much longer.|
|I see from the long term chart that the share price is back to 2012 levels. I am new to ESNT and was wondering if the business is now alot sounder than 4 years ago ??
I see from the ADVFN numbers from 2012 , revenue is up 65% (663M to 1098M ) and pre tax profits up 17% ( 77M to 90M ) and EPS up 4.8% ( 25 to 26.2p)
The share price has been flat. As an optimist I believe this business IS stronger and the previous numbers would support this. Therefore is this business fundamentally undervalued ??
I would appreciate to hear the negative case for this share and why its NOT a bargain at 510 -520p ??|
|Cant find anything on the website wllm.|
