rivaldo: Glawsiain, thx for the summary from ST's tip - I managed to obtain the whole thing as follows: "Poised for take off Aim-traded Gama Aviation (GMAA:250p), an operator of privately owned jet aircraft, has issued the robust trading statement I was expecting ahead of interim results due out on Thursday, 7 September 2017. I outlined the investment case just over a fortnight ago (‘Four small-cap plays’, 3 Jul 2017) when I noted the unwarranted undervaluation relative to peers even though the company is now producing growth across all segments. Yesterday’s trading updates did nothing to dispel my enthusiasm as it revealed that Gama’s fast-growing US aircraft management business continues to benefit from strong organic growth as well as the Landmark fleet joint venture with BBA Aviation (BBA:307p); its European air operation has extricated itself from some underperforming legacy contracts and is benefiting from cost savings and margin improvements; and its European ground services operation is seeing higher maintenance activity on the back of contract wins announced earlier this year, and a ‘modest pick-up’ in discretionary aircraft improvements and modifications spend. This suggests that analyst expectations of a 10 per cent rise in EPS to 33 cents this year look well founded and that the shares are likely to maintain their ascent to narrow the 40 per cent ratings discount with peers as highlighted by analyst John Cummins at broking house WH Ireland. Trading on just under 10 times EPS estimates of 26p using an average blended exchange rate of £1=US$1.28 for 2017, with net debt set to fall sharply this year, so offering scope for further earnings enhancing bolt-on acquisitions, and offering 20 per cent upside to my new target price range of 275p to 300p, I continue see decent upside here. It’s of interest too that Gama’s share price is pressurising the 250p level that acted as a major support level until May last year when it gave way. A break-out above this key resistance level is worth noting as it narrows the odds significantly of a run up to my aforementioned target price range. I would also flag up that my fair valuation is well below the 370p target price of house broker WH Ireland and could have scope for upgrades if the current momentum in the business continues. Buy."

corrientes: My broker confirmed the difficulty buying in any volume. I had to pay the 3p above the offer, so that's my fourth and last purchase here. Some have said that the share price has been held back because of difficulty in interpreting the figures, so you can't be too sure of the underlying net worth. Hopefully this will be less of a problem when the results are announced, in which case, there should be a re rating to a more realistic level. Fingers crossed.
rivaldo: Here's Simon Thompson's full tip (thanks mate) - he's increased his target price to a still conservative (imo) 275p-300p: "Gama shares in the ascent Aim-traded shares in Gama Aviation (GMAA:240p), an operator of privately owned jet aircraft, hit my 250p target price last week, having risen by 15 per cent since my full-year results call with finance director Kevin Godley and chief executive Marwan Khalek ('Five small-cap buys', 29 Mar 2017). I previously advised buying at the start of the year at 175p ('In the ascent', 23 Jan 2017), although this has proved to be a volatile holding and the price is now only back above the 225p level at which I initiated coverage, albeit it did subsequently hit a high of 380p in late 2014 ('Ready for take-off', 12 May 2014). That said, this year's share price recovery looks fully warranted. The company's robust pre-close trading update ahead of half-year results on Wednesday 19 July is highly supportive of adjusted EPS, rising by 10 per cent to 33¢ as forecast by analyst John Cummins at brokerage WH Ireland. Gama's fast-growing US aircraft management business continues to generate strong organic growth and is also benefiting from the Landmark fleet joint venture with BBA Aviation (BBA). Importantly, "right sizing" the company's European air business and exiting from underperforming contracts is paying off and this unit is on target to deliver modest growth. Modest growth is materialising from the European ground services business, too, underpinned by "increased maintenance activity from contract wins announced at the start of the year, as well as the return of some discretionary aircraft improvements and modifications spend". Importantly, the directors "are focused on building on the improvements in operating margins, working capital and cash conversion that we delivered in 2016". That's important for the company to achieve its target of halving net debt to a range $9m to $10m by the December year-end. It's also supportive of the progressive dividend policy, and further bolt-on acquisitions. Last year's acquisitions of FlyerTech and Aviation Beauport are on track to achieve their budgeted growth after posting strong first-quarter results, and "are working on enhancing cross-selling opportunities and new joint sales initiatives within Gama's European air and ground services divisions". Trading on 9.5 times forward earnings, representing a 40 per cent ratings discount to peers, and with another upbeat outlook statement likely later this month, I am upgrading my target price to a range between 275p and 300p to reflect the operational improvements being made and de-risking of earnings estimates. Buy."
fizzypop: Mr Market not spotted connection with Farnborough yet but all adds to influence on moving share price up.
rivaldo: To emphasise the point, we have 2 buys this morning and the share price has moved up strongly on both of them.
rivaldo: WH Ireland in their new note have retained their Buy advice, with a 340p target price. They note that 2016 EPS was slightly ahead of expectations at 30.1c. Their forecast for this year is 32.9c, with 36.1c next year. At $1.24 that's 26.5p EPS this year rising to 29.1p EPS, i.e P/E's of 7.9 dropping to 7.2. They conclude: "Whilst there were a number of challenges in 2016, Aircraft under management increased by 12% in the year to 165 and good operational progress has been made in strengthening the Group’s position. We believe that Gama is fundamentally a strong business with excellent growth prospects over the next few years across a number of territories, including in the US following the tie up with BBA. Following the results, we nudge our revenue expectations marginally higher, whilst our EBITDA, PBT and EPS forecasts remain unchanged. We believe the shares remain undervalued and reiterate both our Buy recommendation and 340p share price target."
paleje: Agreed someuwin it's a good place to be. With ref to ST, who czar mentioned, he stated in his column today that he will be updating GMAA amongst others soon, I can only see it as being positive for the share price as their situation is better now than when he last covered them in Oct and he was bullish enough then:- "Finally, I am carrying out extensive equity research on my 2017 Bargain Shares Portfolio at the moment ahead of its publication on Friday 3 February. I will publish updates on a number of other companies in due course that have also reported trading updates recently including: high street retailer Moss Bros (MOSB); privately owned aircraft operatorGama Aviation (GMAA); stockbroker and fund manager Walker Crips(WCW); pawnbroker H&T (HAT); retail software company K3 Business Technology (KBT); and Mind + Machines (MMX), a service provider in the domain name industry and one focused on the new top-level domain space."
corrientes: Marwan Khalek quickly responded to an email I sent him recently expressing my concerns about the question of financial transparency and the steep decline in the share price.I also mentioned that certain small but high profile companies had ended up as disasters, and effectively said that if absolute transparency was not forthcoming, it might send the wrong message to the market. Nothing new, but he did mention that the mid- January update would provide further clarification on the numbers. The company is also obviously disappointed with the share price performance,but he did say it will communicate with investors as frequently and as clearly as possible. If these numbers are finally accepted, then hopefully the present share price will soon be a distant memory.
paleje: Fair point rHatton it's certainly frustrating, it's alright talking a great game to the media but it flies in the face of what the share price is saying. I emailed him Friday but no answer, wouldn't be unreasonable to aknowledge a seller if they know of one or 'know of no reason' comment if they don't. The share price hasn't plunged, which often triggers BoD reponses, but it has relentlessly eroded which, if their statements are true, is illogical and I think management have some responsibility to comment on continual contrary share price movement. Clearly Mr K does not. So far:)
