|I was looking into FIF ( Finsbury Food Group) and on this link it's saying its a strong buy signal http://investing.thisismoney.co.uk/quote/FIF|
|Same here, they seem to be a great company. I cant wait until they release the end of year report. So far they have had steady growth each year.|
|I've seen some news saying FIF shares are projected to go up. I checked on the dividends and they are really good at the moment.|
|Its is with GBP creeping up|
|FIF couldn't be in better shape.|
|Good to see my old thread still ticking along well!|
|yes, the pre-close reiterated the last update, that inflationary times are forecast and it is hard to fully pass on those cost increases to customers, hence some pressure on profits
we can take solace in the fact that FIF is now in much better shape than previously and that the management team is working proactively and ahead of time rather than trying to deal with such things reactively|
|I suspect a combination of sector malaise (reaction to the poor update from Premier Foods which highlighted the adverse impact of increased commodities prices and downgraded profit forecasts) and the underlying message in the FIF pre-close statement that making a decent profit is hard work and will require material ongoing investment - although we already knew that.|
|why is this share dropping like a stone|
|Good read, thanks for flagging.Link ishttp://www.telegraph.co.uk/business/2017/01/07/inside-finsburys-factory-makes-180000-cakes-week/|
|Telegraph business section has quite a detailed Finsbury cake factory article.|
|Trading statement is short & sweet
£101.5m sales in first 3 months, with good results in Europe (albeit still pretty small beer)
Highlights the headwinds and shows a controlled and flexible response including continued capex etc.
Happy with that.|
|Am I right in understanding that the latest LTIP literally gives the shares for free to the Directors if the attached conditions are met? I sincerely hope not. It's good to have incentive schemes and perhaps these should allow directors to buy shares at the historical market price but no way should these already well paid people receive several additional multiples of their salaries just for doing their job well. This is symptomatic of the worst of our capitalist society.|
|an unhelpful signal from our chair.|
|So, it's Lonfin that have caused the recent share price dip - can't see it lasting long given our recent results and continued strong progress.|
|Any profit-taking seems to be balanced by more buying - after a little airing in the journals, we should see a sustained rise towards 150p.|
|Should have updated this yesterday to make several important observations:
Net operating cash earnings came in at £20m+ though below my £25m projection, can be used to repay loans and meet CapEx.
Dividends payout has doubled from last year, expect it to increase in the future, as the company completes repaying off its loans or pay down debt to a level agreeable with its banking creditors.
N.B. The cost of borrowing is cheaper than equity!|
|There are several things interesting about Finsbury Food giving it a decent competitive advantage, they are:
-Food licensing for big names like Disney.
-Producing famous cakes like The Simpsons, Hello Kitty and Peppa Pig.
-Manufacturing bread and cake for big grocery retailers.
-Also, service snacks to pubs, coffee chains and hotels.
All these niche areas have improved Finsbury’s operating margins and will lead to a future increase in dividend increase.
The shares have made a good recovery for three years and holders are likely to see a further 50% upside.
