mikeran: I think this nonsense from Citywire analyst says it all "After upgrading their rating on Hargreaves Lansdown just last month, analysts at Citigroup have cut the stock from 'neutral' to 'sell' following the recent run in the share price. "We upgraded from 'sell' to 'neutral' last month. Recently, however, shares have rallied strongly and there is now 17% downside to our target price Their Target Price is also based on nothing but speculation. But they have ways of Making money. That is what analysts get paid for !!!
robinnicolson: More on that RBC downgrade: The shares have derated significantly YTD but continue to trade at a premium multiple to the diversified financials sector. HL remains a quality company in our opinion but the upside is limited by ongoing concerns about valuation and competition. From reaching an all time high in January 2014, HL’s share price has fallen by 38% to hit a recent low of 964p on 24 September 2014. The FTSE 100 index (HL is a constituent) has declined by 2% over the same period. We misjudged the extent to which the market’s concerns about RDR 2 compliant pricing, HL’s ongoing ability to attract flows and downward pressure on the average interest margin would negatively affect the share price in a catalyst light period. We believe HL's underperformance has been particularly pronounced since it is a higher rated company, which in our opinion faces a greater risk of derating. HL has traded as high as 36.5x 1-year forward earnings in January 2014. In our opinion, HL remains a quality company. We forecast that the operating margin should remain in excess of 70% throughout our forecast horizon and we forecast an underlying diluted EPS CAGR of 13% between FY14A and FY17E. We acknowledge that increasing competition poses a risk to HL’s ability to attract net inflows, but we note that between September 2013 and March 2014, despite a wave of new entrants, HL has in fact grown its market share of the direct-to-consumer platform market. We believe potential upside is limited by HL’s premium valuation. The shares currently trade at 24.3x CY15E EPS, which despite the stock’s significant derating YTD, remains a premium to the diversified financials sector, which trades on average at 13x CY15E earnings. We believe potential upside is limited by HL's high valuation compared to the diversified financials sector, since we believe the market is awaiting clarity on HL’s improved cash offering and since competition continues to intensify in the sector, which we believe poses headline risk to the share price. Price target reduced by 35% to 1075p. We continue to use a DCF to value HL in the absence of a compelling peer group for the stock and since its cash flow generation is high and predictable. We use a CAPM model to derive 8% as our cost of equity (equal to the WACC since HL is debt free). We reduce the perpetual growth rate in our DCF to 3% (previous: 5%) which accounts for the entirety of the reduction to our price target. Our 1075p price target implies a CY15E EPS multiple of 27.1x, which is inline with the average one-year forward P/E multiple over the past two years. Valuation: · As the only listed UK platform business, we do not believe that HL has a direct peer group. Therefore, we do not believe that a comparable multiples approach is appropriate to value the company. · We acknowledge the fact that the outcome of a DCF is manipulated by its inputs, and this is precisely the reason why we do not use it to value any other companies in our coverage universe. However, we believe it is the best alternative to value HL in the absence of compelling comparables. In our opinion, a DCF approach is appropriate since HL’s cash flow generation is high and predictable. We forecast HL to convert nearly 100% of profit after tax to free cash flow in FY15 and FY16. · Since HL is debt free, the WACC is equal to the cost of equity. We use a CAPM model to derive 8.0% as our cost of equity and use a perpetual growth rate of 3.0% (previous: 5.0%) in our DCF. Reducing the perpetual growth rate from 5.0% to 3.0% accounts for the entirety of the reduction to our price target, since the changes to our forecasts are small (we make 2%-3% reductions to our net revenue forecasts). · Our 1075p price target implies a CY15E EPS multiple of 27.1x, which is inline with the average one-year forward P/E multiple over the past two years. Price target impediments: HL continues to trade at a high multiple, and, therefore, faces a greater risk of derating compared to the sector in a market downturn or should the level of growth disappoint. Competition is high and could accelerate customer attrition at HL. We believe that in the UK, there are currently ~30 different companies offering investment services to the DIY investor and the number continues to increase. We believe competition should increase as the UK savings and investment market continues to grow, and since a structural shift is underway in the UK retail space, toward DIY investing on platforms. The investment and customer service propositions offered by HL’s competitors are becoming increasingly sophisticated and comparable to its own service, which could cause customer attrition to accelerate. Regulation could increase the costs of doing business and reduce investor appetite. We also believe that changes in tax law could affect the attractiveness of some of HL's investment products, including ISAs and SIPPs. A prolonged downturn in financial markets could reduce demand for HL’s services. We believe that retail engagement in financial markets tends to increase with positive market performance and low volatility. Adverse market conditions may affect the value of HL’s existing AUA and could result in increased demand for advice-based investment models, rather than the DIY option offered by HL through Vantage. nsider selling could weigh on the share price. We believe that management, the founders, and staff own ~50% of shares outstanding. We note the risk that selling by substantial holders could weigh on the share price, particularly given the incidence of large single transactions in the past. Most recently, on 26 March 2014, Stephen Lansdown sold 14.5MM shares (3.1% of shares outstanding at the time).
robinnicolson: This is the reason for the share price drop this morning: * Hargreaves Lansdown hits a year-low as RBC questions company's valuation. * Shares down 3.4 pct to 930p after falling nearly 5 pct in early trading. * RBC downgrades to "perform" from "outperform", cuts target price by 35 pct from 1650p to 1075p. * Shares have fallen 38 pct since hitting all-time high in January this year. * Still trades on a forward P/E of 25, twice that of other asset managers and diversified financials. * Traded as high as 36.5 times earnings in January. * "We believe potential upside is limited by the stock's valuation, which remains high compared to the diversified financials sector... competition continues to intensify in the sector, which we believe poses a headline risk to the share price," RBC said.
ceteri: why the drop in share price on what appear to be good results?
mozy123: 3rd of September will give us clues if the drop in share price is warrented. Any decline in AUM as rumoured due to pricing policies will either confirm the decline or produce a buying oportunity. As buffet says - im keeping my power dry.
mechanical trader: Broker Recommendations Galvan expects 'upsurge in business' at Hargreaves Lansdown 24 March 2014 11:23 Galvan Research and Trading has labelled financial services group Hargreaves Lansdown as a 'buy', saying that it should get a boost from George Osborne's 2014 Budget. The Chancellor unveiled a radical shake-up of the savings markets last week, giving customers unprecedented freedom over how they draw their pensions, whilst increasing the annual ISA allowance to £15,000 per person. Galvan believes that Hargreaves should see an "upsurge in business" as a result of customers beginning to take advantage of the new measures. "Hargreaves Lansdown investors have enjoyed a stellar share price performance over the last one to two years, as shares have trebled in value since April 2012," said Head of Trading, Ed Woolfitt. "Despite the record set of full-year results, the recent pre-budget blip was perhaps understandable given last year's changes by the FCA to fund platform commissions, but the pension revolution and ISA changes announced by the Chancellor will suit HL down to the ground as the UK's largest direct to investor 'Investment Supermarket'." Woolfitt estimates that the share price will return to its 52-week high of 1,549p in the coming two to three weeks. The stock was down 1% at 1,400p by 11:40 on Monday. BC
