betman: 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 Edit 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.
betman: 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 ??
ygor706: Just been listening to the end of the CEO's presentation. He finished by nailing his colours to the fact that second half performance will be better and that he will be there to make sure that it is. Was very clear on that point. Second half 2016 should then serve as a platform for improved performance next year. Essentra is a well diversified business with a good cash flow and my belief is that the wild swing in the share price could well encourage the attention of an opportunistic predator who has a little more value insight than the average MM. Interseting times!
bozzy_s: Good shorting opportunity here. Combination of several factors: - Long and sustained share price rally up to results day - Expect a lot of profit taking, as many investors 'buy the rumour, sell the news' - Balance sheet and P&L figures look like they belong to a £200m - £500m company, rather than one valued at a whopping £2bn - Net Tangible Asset value actually fell from 15p per share to 2.5p per share. Market capitalisation is currently at a 35,000% premium to NTAV!! - All the annual profit, and more, was spent on the acquisition of intangibles and payment of dividends - EPS of 26p puts these on a high PE ratio of 32 - Net debt increased to over £200m Just a few thoughts. No opinion on how good the company is, or it's products or staff. Just a simple value calculation looking at P&L & Balance Sheet. Reckon there's a fair chance of these falling to 700p very short term, and perhaps 400p in the medium run. Still a massive overvaluation based on fundamentals.
00:39 A £2-billion company whose share price has been trending upwards since the middle of 2009 -- up nearly 8-fold in that time - and nobody discussing it. Share price climbed 71.5% in the second half of 2009, 28.5% in 2010, 56.6% in 2011, 44.5% in 2012, 56% in 2013 -- and just before Xmas it broke out past its previous all-time high.
