strategicinvestor2: Merger talks - share price risen marginally, expect we might hear more on sector consolidation in the new year and HSS should massively benefit. We will see.::::
strategicinvestor2: Take over - do others expect to see consolidation and maybe HSS and Speedy merging, talking again as has been rumoured by Sky ? Seems common sense for both parties to massively increase profitability and assets utilisation. Let's hope stubborn management doesn't ruin the day. Also could Ashtead launch a take over for HSS ? Wherever this heads I think HSS shareholders will make massive gains from where share price is today IMHO dyor. Time will tell .....
strategicinvestor2: Creditors look at longer term cash flow to ensure they get their money back - HSS should have no problem there with a strong EBITDA. I suspect HSS intangible more than justified based on discounted cash flow valuation. Share price being so low makes it risky but reward could be a doubling in the medium term to about half issue price ....
kingston78: May I say that those who make the most profit (% wise)have the foresight by going long or short depending on the respective situation well before the share price moves. Followers still make profit but to a lesser extent, however, a profit is a profit and should not be sneezed at. There is really no scientific way of determining where exactly a share price will end despite employing sophisticated computer charting software. It will only tell you the trend, which at some point may reverse. There is a limitation of loss when buying shares outright, or in optionable stocks when buying put options. Going short using spreadbet or CFD could lose you a lot of money unless you are very disciplined and using stop loss. People going short on Glencore when analysts had been writing the shares to be worthless just as it took action to clam the market causing its share price to rise significantly on consecutive days must have burnt the fingers of many shorters. Events can be very unpredictable. Trends can reverse very suddenly and sharply. That is why I have invested in HSS in a small way because I am cautious about its outlook but the risk / reward ratio is in favour of an upside.
kingston78: If HSS performs as well as Speedy Hire in the latter's recent trading update the share price of HSS will rise by 20% to the 70p I reckon.
kingston78: Businesses, good or bad, including giants like supermarkets and miners, go through cycles. So long as they can manage the cash flow effectively they can see through hard times. All they need is a steady pair of hands at the top. Witness the recovery of share price in Sainsbury's today. It has been pointed out by analysts that the problems associated with Speedy Hire and HSS Hire are company specific. There are profitable quoted companies in this sector. I am sure that the senior management of Speedy Hire and HSS Hire can learn from their competitors. It is not as if the tool hire market is shrinking. It is how you manage the costs and grow revenue in tandem that matters. I know it is easier said than done, but I trust that these people will find a way round it. It is true that the floatation price of HSS Hire was way too high. But I think that its current share price offers an attractive upside in 12 months time. I don't think HSS Hire is going to go bust, far from it. It takes a long time to build up a business, and it has the assets. If it does not perform well, it will be taken over by a competitor or by a private equity fund. I suggest that this is the right time to buy these shares when many people are shunning from them.
kingston78: The company has pursued an expansion plan which has not so far achieved the desired result. The increased revenue (market share) does not compensate for the increased overheads and higher depreciation, hence putting strains on finance. The management will need to translate the revenue into bottom line profit, by controlling costs and achieve a better utilisation rate of the hire fleet. In addition the management might need to revise its business plan by delaying further openings of new branches. The company does not have much headroom left for its drawdown facility. It is difficult for it to raise fresh money from investors at such a depressed share price. Raising fresh capital by a deeply discounted issue will be very unpopular as it will have a dilutive effect, so it will create a vicious circle depressing its share price further. No doubt the management is reviewing all the options. If a strategy does not work one should be brave enough to admit errors and change tack. That is why a new chief executive from outside the company is usually more welcome than someone from within. As I see it the new CEO is a COO and CFO, so he is both an operation and finance person. So long as he understands finance (which he must do)he should know that we all need to live within our means by not over-stretching the company's balance sheet. I suspect that there might have been internal debate between Operations and Finance, with Operations winning or over-ruling Finance. I hope they will sort out the operational issues, and finance will be straightened up.
kingston78: I acknowledge that the share chart is poor and is on a down trend, but the down trend has now stabilised. I also recognise that there has been mismanagement of the business and the business model may not achieve the desired result with ambitious expansion, which if it goes wrong, digs themselves a bigger hole. Purely looking at the share chart, the decline from 210p is significant and has gone down in stages. I would point out that we are now at a critical juncture. It is hard to say whether the share price will recover or fall further from here. Either way, the move will be big. I am talking about 50% movement from the current level. There are two big falling gaps, the latest one from 140 to 100. A gap in a share chart will ultimately be filled unless the company goes bust or continues to under-perform. In other words, with a good management and/or improving economic situation the company will recover one day. Also, market sentiment makes a big difference. If the share price were to go down to 30p, I suspect the company will be bid for. Someone will pick it up on the cheap. Alternatively, if there is a change of senior management the share price will be likely to go up from here.
kingston78: Market Makers always try to keep a square book, especially when the market or a share is falling. They mark down prices more than usual to discourage sellers. They certainly don't want to buy shares from you if they see the price fall further. Conversely, prices tend to go up very quickly on a tight squeeze if buyers return. MMs are happy to buy from you in the knowledge that they can sell your shares at a higher price. They encourage buyers by pushing up the share price. The share price of HSS has steadied after a terrific fall. Yesterday's and today's price action tells me that the falling trend has stopped. There is a gentle signal that the trend is now reversing. Experience tells me that the herd instinct will follow. I conclude that HSS is now heading north and will jump up by 15-20% very quickly. It may take a little longer for it to reach my target of 100 p. Good luck to all holders.
paulypilot: I bought some Lavendon (LVD) today - its results were good, and the PER of 9 looks far cheaper than HSS, considering it has a strong Bal Sheet, and decent divi yield. HSS looks cheap if you ignore the debt, but adjust for that, and it's not cheap at all. Why buy into basket cases like HSS & SDY, when there is a better & cheaper alternative in companies like LVD or VP.? They seem much better managed businesses too. Trouble is, people "anchor" to the old share price, and think that just because something like HSS has dropped two thirds, that it must be cheap. Actually, it was just far too expensive originally, and now that its performance has tanked, everyone can see that it was dressed up for the float, in order to maximise the price that new shareholders paid to allow the PE guys to realise some of their gains. Regards, Paul. (no position in HSS, VP., or SDY, long of LVD)
