|Last June I remarked that I was a little perplexed as to why the share price had retraced 12%. This year we have another mystifying 12% retracement after a good Q1. Is it the time of year? Am I missing something? Or is time to top up again!|
|Seems a cheap stock:-
Investec have EPS of 110p for 2016 and 118p for 2017 forecast, so a current year P/E of 7...not as though current trading is bad either:-
....seems very cheap to me.|
|Buy recommendation in I.C. today. Forward PE estimated to be 8!! Seems a steal at current share price|
|Spectacular results. PER 9.1, albeit helped by very low tax rate owing to US losses. Confident outlook statement despite the challenges and I rather like the somewhat different style of the CEO here.|
|Today's results looks excellent. I note the earnings per share up from 68.1 to 88.4. PE ratio at last night's price under 10. Surely undervalued in my opinion.
Good luck to all!!|
|Waiting to see what kind of divi i receive today. At the previous divi time I checked with Selftrade and was told my SIPP account could not accept the kind of shares being offered as an alternative to cash.I therefore really didn't have to take any action in order to make sure I received cash. This time I am not so sure though. I sold my IPEL shares at Selftrade but still have some in another SIPP at Stocktrade. By the time I discovered the different way this divi was organised it was too late to make any attempt at getting something signed.
Why do they make it such a lottery? It must be why the share price has dropped again like at the last divi time.
I must say however this company has been a very good investment over the last few years and,although I took some profits in september, I intend to stick with them as long as I receive cash divis.
Good luck to all! DYOR.|
|I share your concerns too but am trying not to throw the baby out with the bathwater here as the company is trading well and is still good value. Lord Ashcroft does appear to be running this like a private company since he became non-exec chairman, with us small shareholders being nothing more than a nuisance.I will talk to my broker about how best to elect for cash - they managed to elect cash for me on the previous dividend, and as they are the true owner and I am just the beneficial owner, I assume it is them who will need to complete any forms out correctly.Had Lord Ashcroft made the default option cash, so you had to opt in for shares in Normandy (which he could then do so) I would have less of an issue with the scheme. I have relayed this on to him.|
|Pretty unhappy to be presented with a change in dividend to put me into a new offshore company run by Michael Ashcroft. Doing this just after it's gone ex-dividend too - can't believe this was dreamt up in the last couple of weeks either, especially as Normandy was incorporated a couple of months ago..... And to avoid this, onus put on shareholders to return an independently witnessed form - how does this work for a Nominee account?
Announcement at 5.25pm on Tuesday - why not 7am, when people read RNS? And we don't really get to vote on it as Lombard Trust (beneficieries = Ashcroft's children) have 52%.
No longer a company I want to have anything to do with - sold yesterday @800p. Complete bargepole.|
|What's the view as to when this will get to 900p? I see a few more buys today, in that they are above the mid price|
|I make that new highs....|
|Very well turned around. I see other people have seen the value in this company - oversold before|
|Well turned around this afternoon :))|
|Looking forward to this reaching new highs!|
|Pity the sale of 5700 at 725 yesterday afternoon that's just shown up|
|Yes very impressive, £10 isn't out of the question imv.|
|Pretty impressive results|
|You may well be right though the do is starting to slowly move north again|
|I agree with you Paul. But it hasn't been moving anywhere recently. Might take something big like an acquisition to make this move.|
|Any thoughts - any thoughts on the share price increasing? The business looks sound|
|very strange. Up or down? Big retracement without any real news to justify it. Any thoughts?|
|Thanks for your inputs gdjs100. I spoke with Impellam this morning. Apparently they are hoping to send out more details concerning the divi and choices on 13 july. Eligible shareholders will have until 23 July to make a decision between cash or shares.
BTW I was also informed that eligible shareholders will have to make an election to receive cash. If they don't they will automatically receive shares.
Anyway I'm glad everyone can have cash.
Strange how share price is behaving though.|
|Eligible shareholders have the choice as you correctly state, and ineligible shareholders (those with <10k shares) won't have a choice - but they will receive the cash dividend. Check with the company if you aren't sure.|
|gdjs100 -just to be clear.Only "eligible" shareholders will be offered the cash choice. I quote below from their latest note.
"Eligible Shareholders are those Shareholders on the Company's register of members at 5.00 p.m. on 10 July 2015 who hold not less than 10,000 ordinary shares in the Company and to whom the distribution or communicating details of the Share Dividend would not be in breach of law or regulation (or otherwise not practicable for the Directors to so conclude). "
IMHO this means that many investors with up to £70k invested will be thinking about selling.|
|It's for anyone holding more than 10k only, and then there is the option to take cash instead. Shouldn't make a material difference.|
