walbrock82: Looking through Greene King the second time around, here are the following important points shareholders and new investors should take to heart: Starting with the good points -The stock is 20%-30% undervalued based on a range of valuation metrics, which takes into account the latest trading update. -Despite, rising total borrowings to £2.5bn. On a per-share basis, debt fell from £14 in 2005 to £8 today. Meanwhile, the share price is down from £6.50 to £5.50. Making the stock an undervalue investment play. -Greene King controls £3.2bn of freehold properties. If you minus the net borrowings, the excess properties are around £1.1bn or 64% of market capitalisation. Now, onto the bad points -Commercial properties prices have continued to struggle and despite two years of growth, it remains below levels last seen in 2000. That’s because of the interest in online shopping and the closures of bricks and mortar stores. -Their brewing ale brands division is facing growing competition as profit margin fell from 20% to 15% in a decade. Putting it all together. Share price forecast On the technical charts, the sentiment is seriously negative. The indicators are making lower lows in the RSI and MACD. This could send the shares falling towards £5. But that represents immediate value, as long as earnings don’t collapse (30% or more). Personally, I’m pencilling in a fall of 10% in adjusted earnings. However, this time next year, shares in Greene King could rise to £6.50 per share. Given the historical performances of Greene King, this has a 70% chance of happening. But the key is to wait for another three months to see if the technical indicators change direction. Thanks for reading and make sure to comment on my blog post below, if you have specific questions. This is because the forums are very active and I don’t have the time to scroll through several pages. Although any answers I will re-post on the forum if it proves helpful to shareholders.

tlobs2: So then, a modest 1.2% drop in sales ......hardly justifies a slump in share price of 14%.

philanderer: Canaccord downgrades... Following today's disappointing AGM trading statement from Greene King, we are cutting our EPS (Dil. Adj.) forecasts by 5.7% to 66.7p for FY18E, by 8.3.% to 67.8p for FY19E and by -10.8% to 68.6p for FY20E. This is our fifth consecutive trading downgrade. We also now assume no growth in the dividend. The worsening consumer outlook and poor summer weather is ostensibly to blame but the Spirit integration is yet to deliver revenue synergies with the high exposure to the value food segment acting as an extra drag on performance. We are cutting our recommendation to HOLD from Buy and our target price to 550p (was 850p). The £3.6bn of SE orientated freehold assets on the balance sheet underpins valuation supported with plenty of transaction evidence, dividend is +2.0x covered but the downgrades need to stop to breathe new life into the share price.

jeffian: This is a longer précis of the HSBC note which knocked the share price. The increases in costs are real enough - increases in Minimum Wage and, particularly, the impact of the property rates revaluation - but, like others above, I doubt there will be a serious downturn in trade. Time and again pub trade has proved to be considerably more resilient in recessions than commentators feared. As for saying pubco's "aren't especially cheap", with both GNK and MARS trading on single-figure PER's, how low is "cheap"?! "HSBC TAKES DIM VIEW OF UK PUBS, DOWNGRADES GREENE KING AND 'SPOONS (ShareCast News) - UK pubs face twin risks from consumer spending and rising costs, leading HSBC to take a more negative stance on the sector and downgrade Greene King and JD Wetherspoons. HSBC, which moved Greene King to 'reduce' from 'hold' and Wetherspoons to 'hold' from 'buy', also kept Marstons and Mitchells & Butlers at 'hold' ratings as it sees limited attractions from the pub companies as they "aren't especially cheap and they face earnings risk". In a note to clients the bank examined how valuation support is limited and concluded that consumer weakness "may now be showing through and, combined with cost increases, this could hurt earnings for some of the operators". With various reports suggesting a downturn may already be under way, analysts at the bank questioned pubs' claims that eating/ drinking is an "affordable treat" that would not be badly impacted in a consumer downturn. "Maybe that's true, though macro level data suggest that spend was hit badly during the last recession, even if like-for-likes at the big pubcos weren't. Companies must also try to offset higher costs through higher pricing, which may be difficult," they said. Of the four companies, only Wetherspoon's looks to have "clear pricing power" and is seen as the best placed to trade through the weakness, its strong share price performance means it's "no longer cheap in the circumstances". With the analysts unsure of a consumer downturn but worried about the continued increase in costs and the ease with which this can be mitigated, Greene King was downgraded on concerns over its cost outlook in particular."

philanderer: Bit of detail from that note In a sector review, the HSBC analysts said: “We can’t be sure of a consumer downturn, but do worry about the continued increase in costs and the ease with which this can be mitigated... ...They added “Operators have already struggled with this even in a benign consumer environment. We don’t see obvious valuation support, and think downgrades will drive share price weakness. “ proactiveinvestors.co.uk

walbrock82: Looking beyond today’s results, we note the following factors: - Since 2004 Revenue grew from £552m to £2,216.50m, an average growth of 11.3%. Net income rose from £52m to £151.7m. Net Cash profit rose from £68m to £299.2m. Total Assets rose from £1,254m to £5,598m, with total liabilities increased from £600.7m to £3,654m. However, EPS fell from 80.2 pence to 49 pence, thanks to increasing share count! Finally, dividends per share remain ROUGHLY unchanged during the period at 32 pence. This is despite dividends rising from £22m to £101m. On Greene King Cash Position Since 2014, Greene King includes a liquidity facility loan of £157.5m in cash and cash equivalent, that facility is REPAYABLE ON DEMAND. Therefore, it doesn’t belong in that category!! By excluding it, the cash balance is £285.5m. On Greene King Debt mountain Debt is high, but in relation to properties, it accounts for 65% of total properties. On Greene King, Operating Lease Since the acquisition of Spirit Pubs, Greene King total operating lease went from £26m to over £1,353m in a year. This will lead to higher rental costs for the future. On Greene King’s share price On balance, the company is fairly valued, given that it will experience some cost pressures. A credible entry point for the shares would be £6.20-£6.30 per share price if operational performance continues to improve. However, a financial crisis or an economic recession in the UK would be damaging to its share price. For detailed analysis, click http://bit.ly/2s6iQZ2

philanderer: Pub operator Greene King also became the victim of a rating downgrade. Broker Numis slashed its rating to “hold” following its recent share price strength. The FTSE 100 stock slipped 2.5p to 757p. HTTP://www.telegraph.co.uk/business/2017/05/08/euro-slips-back-110-french-shares-briefly-touch-post-crisis/

jeffian: exel, As you say, we've had this discussion on the MARS thread but the reason GNK stands at a premium to MARS is that it has a better growth history and better growth prospects with the integration of Spirit still to show full benefits. http://uk.advfn.com/cmn/fbb/thread.php3?id=15966794&from=1693&to=1693 As for NAV, if you only bought shares covered by NAV you wouldn't be buying many shares! GNK is modestly valued on earnings and dividends; that fact that its share price is largely underpinned by solid property assets is a reassurance rather than a reason for investing. I hold both. At this level, I'm tempted to buy more GKN and, if I did, I would expect significantly better performance than from my MARS shares.
