1gw: Nice little pop in the share price there. Looks like my profit-taking continues to act as a bullish signal...
1gw: Exit stage left... It's quite incredible when you think about it. The departures of CEO (13th Jan), CFO (18th April) and chairman (18th May) have all been announced this year. Yet the share price closed at 388p on 12th Jan, the day before the exodus started and it's now around 520p - so roughly a 1/3 increase in that time. I was sorely tempted to take more profit today, but in the end decided to see what tomorrow brings. What chance a more definitive statement on corporate structure?
1gw: The company was in the market in a small way yesterday, possibly buying shares for a maturing employee share scheme? "John Menzies PLC announces that, on 21 December 2015, it purchased through Numis Securities Limited 12,425 ordinary shares of 25p each at an average price of 398.625 pence per share. The purchased shares will all be held as treasury shares. " hTtp://
1gw: Just bought back the ones I sold on 3rd July. I was impressed by the way the share price got back to and held 450p last week, so hoping it has just been dragged down with the general panic today and will recover fairly quickly.
1gw: To be fair, I think one of the question marks over Mnzs is how to interpret its "exceptionals". In other words does a £5.14 share price represent a trailing p/e of 10 based on 2014 underlying earnings of 49p/share or a trailing p/e of 22 based on 2014 statutory earnings of 23p/share. If I look back over the last 6 years (2009-2014), I estimate the underlying eps has on average been 18p/share higher than the statutory eps, with only one year (2011) where the two were similar and no years where the underlying was lower than the statutory [except that when restated in a subsequent year, the 2010 basic earnings then exceeded the underlying earnings]. Over that period the exceptional items have varied, but there usually seems to be a significant amount of something "exceptional" - contract amortisation, restructuring, impairment, onerous lease etc. So you might argue that while the individual items are "exceptional" the pattern actually looks like business as usual. Errors excepted. Please do your own research.
1gw: Anyone still here? Share price recovery seems to be motoring along, helped by yesterday's RNS which indicates the first step along the stated strategy to make better use of the distribution assets by seeking daytime use options. hTtp://
sphere25: "Given John Menzies recent underperformance, Lakestreet believes that: John Menzies is dramatically undervalued, especially when taking into consideration the sum of its parts. If Menzies Distribution and Menzies Aviation were to be valued on a stand-alone basis, the enterprise value of John Menzies could be in the region of £525 million. John Menzies' implied market capitalisation is in the region of £415 million or approximately 675 pence per share. This represents an 86 per cent upside compared to the Company's closing share price of 362.5 pence on 29 April 2015. Lakestreet has, therefore, committed itself to unlocking the intrinsic value of John Menzies in the interest of all shareholders and has constructively engaged in discussions with the Chairman, Mr. Iain Napier, the CEO, Mr. Jeremy Stafford, and the CFO, Ms. Paula Bell."
1gw: Do we need the 2 threads here? Anyway, there was a huge day's trading a while ago (12th Feb). 6 million shares traded (10% of the company), most of them at £3.70. I thought it might have been Shroders exiting, but if that were the case there should have been a TR-1 and there hasn't been. However, the steady share price progress since then might mean an overhang of some sort has been cleared. In terms of risk vs upside, I think it's all about your view on the aviation side, and in the short-term whether they will try any kitchen-sinking in the results next week given the new management. Personally I think this is unlikely now, given their last TU ("confident of meeting management expectations"). So I am hoping that when we see the results we will realise that the hit to aviation has not been as severe as the initial market reaction suggested. It seems to me the low oil price environment should be good for the distribution business and the aviation side, so I am hoping they can impress with their guidance for 2015. The real upside for me is in a spin-off (or even sale) of the aviation side so that it can be valued as a growth business. However, given the profit warning and new management I think this is unlikely to be a serious prospect in the near term - I think they need to demonstrate that they have got over the recent problems and restored it to its previous impressive growth path before they can sensibly talk about letting it stand on its own feet. IMO, DYOR.
tigerbell: cr please can you explain why when we have buys 24,606 / sells 115,817 that the share price rises 7.5p, as a new chartist, surely the sells should force the share price down. Any light you can shed on this would be of great help, I use share scope to track/select my companys and even this was showing a slow down, of the price, and sure enough it droped 8p on huge sells, now its gone up again, even though, the sells are as strong as ever. Thanks Tiger.
tigerbell: Looks like I was right again, I wonder how far the share price will fall, or will it bounce back, and carry on upto £6.00ish, only time will tell. imho
