cc2014: I guess the question is whether they made enough money from those purchases when the price of oil was around $100 to pay for those investments. I don't know. No market for coal now apart from some specialist uses which is why they will only have one operation in Scotland once Tower closes. This should already be in the share price. Unless Theresa May bins the new reactor at Hinckley Point which may extend the life of some power stations. I don't think this very likely. Although I think she may bin the additional 3-4 reactors that were also originally planned.

cc2014: Quite an interesting day. Certainly lots to think about. Looking at the trades someone sold 125k of shares at 170.0 which took most of the rest of the buyers to absorb. Absorb it they did with the price closing just about it. Quite a few trades at 180 which gives me a nice warm glow for the future share price direction

cjohn: Well, this company have come up on a screen I run for distressed turnaround possiblities. But having taken a closer look, there seems almost no possibility of a turn around. The core business is going. And I don't see they have sufficient FCF to fund significant acquisitions. The acquisition they have made looks speculative to say the least, though to be fair, the Price paid wasn't extortionate. (Great posts, Muckshifter et al.) The property assets per se don't support the current share Price and besides will take years to realize. The only posible salvation here is the redemption of coal. A tiny possibility of that happening. So I'm ducking this one - for now. Good luck to holders.

meijiman: Just looks like a car crash here. Huge strategic errors have been made and the share price has tanked. What is going to change things around? Buying other businesses might help in the longer term. An utter disaster really.

wigwammer: Here are some further stats for you to mull:2012: total liabilities £306m, tangible equity £98m, share price = 7p2015: total liabilities £130m, tangible equity £130m, share price = 2pSo... You believe the visibility and risk attached to this stock is much higher now that the liabilities have fallen by 60%, the equity has risen 30%, and the valuation is a third of what it was.Are you absolutely sure?!

castleford tiger: some OF THEIR SALES? Last year coal was 490 million. This year probably be below 100 million. Without the coal trading part I am not sure there is a business. The market clearly does not like it and until the next full year numbers are in the shares will continue to slide. Its just too many unknowns and the fixed costs of the business may still be too high. I look at the share price 12.00 to 2.50 and wasted 6 million on share backs at over 600p..........there are some bad calls being made here. Situation probably going to get worse before its get better. Still think shareholders may get shafted and the BOD get the bits they want. Land bank etc. Tiger

bakunin: CT I think it is generally frowned upon for directors to be "trading" the shares of their company. GB sold a chunk of his at a much higher share price. It would look bad for him to be buying those back right now. He had built the company up over a period of time and decided to sell some of his holding when the share price was firm. That seems perfectly rational to me. Would you expect him to hold his shares indefinitely just to please shareholders? Directors of a bread+butter company like HSP are usually professional management whose main form of remuneration is salary/fees + share options. They don't usually buy large quantities of shares via the market. There are plenty of tech/concept companies like QPP where you'll find the wannabe Alan Sugars wheeling and dealing in order to try and manipulate their share price. Check out the QPP fiasco last year (not isolated to QPP). I'm happy to have taken a long position at the same time as Schroders have been accumulating a large position (almost 1m shares making over 5m now held). Schroders will not have taken that position by reading this BB or whatever. They will have had several discussions with management and visited the company's facilities. They will have bought in expensive research about the energy market. Maybe there will be a quick capitulation down to 300, but you better not be at work when it happens because the likelihood is that you'll only get a matter of minutes/hours to buy/sell at that level. Otherwise, it will have been in response to really dire news and the share price will go much lower than 300. There must be a very high short interest on HSP. I hope you really aren't short if the next trading update has a positive twist and the shorts all rush to cover.

bakunin: Tiger It's just that normal practice for shorters to saturate the BBs with histrionic one-liners supporting their cause (instilling fear into holders) which is what it seemed you were doing. Another reason for your obviously not being a professional is that you don't use multiple IDs, which is essential if you want to short stocks and spread panic. Anyway, of course the share price has fallen dramatically in line with the fall in the price of coal and it would be foolish to claim that the price of coal will rise again in the S-T, but your statements make out that the company is, therefore, dead and buried and that the share price will fall much more. Pithy one-liners are not the medium in which to point out - that a company with a NAV of £150m made up mainly of real assets is trading at a market cap of £120m - that the company has pointed out (and of course it is a matter of debate whether one should believe what they say) that they could close down almost all the coal operations (so your pointing out that they are closing them is moot) and transfer the fixed cost base onto its other activities turning the coal part of the business into break-even (or to use their words making the group as a whole cash-generative albeit at a slightly reduced level) - management states that the dividend payout, increased by 40%, is expected to be maintained throughout the period of depressed coal prices - that the non-coal activities are generating almost £10m annual pre-tax profit, are growing and will benefit from managerial focus while coal prices are depressed. There's plenty more to say, but shorters are very aware that the herd only read one-liners. You talk like a trader, so I assumed you were a non-professional trying your hand at trading. To find out about automated/programmatic trading, I suggest you read "Flash Boys", which you would have heard quite a lot about over the last 18 months if you followed CNBC or Bloomberg. I would suggest that following CNBC is pretty much essential if you are a trader.

bakunin: I think you need to be careful. You have obviously gone short because you are posting the same message on every BB. You are also obviously not a professional trader as your posts on III indicate that you are not aware of what automated trading is. The share price is being orchestrated by automated trading programs at the moment. The current share price drop exaggerates the recent P/W. Coal prices are dire, but HSP have hedged till May 2015 and have said they will at least be break-even on that front even at depressed coal prices. Industrial Services and Logistics account for almost £10m in pre-tax profit by themselves. Apparently, Councils are spending a lot on their waste services (in Lincolnshire for sure, so they must have good political connections).

totally banjo: Hargreaves 'never in better financial shape' despite share dip Published: 10 Oct 2014 10:30 THE operator of most of East Ayrshire’s open cast coal mines, as well as Glenmuckloch in Kirkconnel, has suffered a dramatic dip in its share price. Hargreaves Services shares are now sitting at their lowest in four years. The Durham-based firm’s price is now £562, dropping from £904 one year ago. The company puts the dip down to the low coal prices internationally. Despite the news, the firm is adamant that it has never been in better financial shape. A spokesperson said: “Whilst the Group cannot comment on why the share price has reduced, the market have reduced their forward profit forecasts of Hargreaves to take account of the continuing low international coal price. This inevitably will be one of the factors putting pressure on the share price. “Despite the fall in international coal prices, management is confident that the breadth and strength of the Group ensures that it will continue to be profitable. Despite the low coal prices, the Group has reiterated its support for continuing to develop its Scottish mining activities as it waits for coal prices to improve. Hargreaves continues to develop its mining activities in a controlled and financially responsible manner. “The Group has also stated that it is looking to streamline its activities around coal and coke trading. Although this is also expected to reduce future profit levels it will also reduce much of the risk and volatility it faces and will allow the Group to free up more cash and capital. “As a result, the market is expecting the Group to be debt free by the end of its financial year in May next year, a significant reduction from the £106 million of debt reported in November 2012. “Despite investing £38 million in setting up its Scottish operations last year, the Group was still able to reduce its bank debt by £9 million over the last financial year to May 31. “Although the share price has fallen, the strong balance sheet position of the Group and the broad activity base ensure that the Group has never been more financially robust.” http://www.cumnockchronicle.com/news/roundup/articles/2014/10/10/512206-hargreaves-never-in-better-financial-shape-despite-share-dip/
