rivaldo: N+1 Singer are nicely positive this morning: "Interims confirm underlying business sound N+1 Singer view NCC’s interim results were largely flagged in the detailed trading update released in December. Group revenue increased 35% to £125.8 (organic growth +18%) and adj. EBITDA grew 15% to £21.3m. The group’s issues relating to contract losses/deferrals in the period were previously announced and are already included in our forecasts. The group has maintained its interim dividend at 1.5p, which we believe is an indication of the strong underlying business. Separately, NCC has announced that Paul Mitchell intends to step down as chairman in May ’17. We continue to believe that NCC remains a highly attractive asset in an area seeing strong structural growth and see the current share price weakness as an opportunity. We retain our Buy recommendation and 233p target price".

masurenguy: Tempus says NCC is a Buy at the current price ! NCC has finally bowed to the inevitable and accepted that it is not going to make a go of its domain services business, which was to have provided a third leg to the cybersecurity provider................This should be a positive for NCC, which provides security services and has a highly cash-generative escrow business..........they sell on 19 times’ earnings for the year to the end of May, a trough one for profits. Its core market of cybersecurity can only continue to grow. It’s one for the long term, if you are prepared to assume that there are no further disasters ahead. My advice: Buy. Why: Share price fall looks overdone, given prospects Complete article: http://www.thetimes.co.uk/edition/business/bargains-are-the-name-of-the-game-fjz98msfh

shalder: Anybody else here think that one of the processes under way is that funds with a remit limited to FTSE350 stocks, plus those with restrictions on investments in non-350 stocks, are having to bail out or reduce holdings, and that for window dressing purposes they are accelerating this process so that their end-year portfolio disclosure will show zero exposure? If this is what is driving the daily share price decline, it may not have much further to run.

markth: This (cyber) is a consolidating market. At this price a non-sterling overseas buyer might get interested. If not, the share price fall is overdone anyway given that the actual impact of the contract cancellations on EBIT is minimal. Stock is now trading at half what it was eight weeks ago...

rivaldo: A fund manager at the CFP SDL UK Buffettology (GB00BKJ9C676) fund tips NCC for 2017: Http://www.investorschronicle.co.uk/2016/12/08/funds-and-etfs/the-big-theme/the-uk-shares-managers-love-and-loathe-for-STJ4RvBABN6Uc6l4BtjAZN/article.html "He also likes FTSE 250 cyber security and technology company NCC (NCC), which manages highly lucrative contracts for a large swath of FTSE 100 companies. Its share price experienced a steep fall following an October trading statement in which the group revealed three of its large contracts had been cancelled. But according to Mr Ashworth-Lord, the market in which it operates has high barriers to entry and the company remains on a compelling valuation. NCC's shares lost almost half of their value between 19 October 2016 and the end of the month, and are now trading at around 190p. But Mr Ashworth-Lord says the issues were inherited through acquired businesses, while its core operation is solid. "Group revenues had increased by 36 per cent (over the four months to September 2016) with organic growth of 21 per cent," he says. "The business is divided into two parts, an escrow division and an assurance division, and those showed organic growth of 25 and 4 per cent respectively. The underlying business is fine, but even if it doesn't manage to turn around those problems, it could be a sitting duck for an American takeover, given where the dollar is sitting against the pound. NCC is on about 16 times historic earnings and has a yield of around 2.5 per cent."

masurenguy: smokybenchod - 610: Seconduser that news is for ncc the Swedish construction company What complete and utter nonsense ! The MF article referenced in post #609 above is about this company and not some random Swedish construction company. NCC Group After rising from 200p to 370p in the last 18 months, NCC Group’s share price plummeted back to the 200p level recently on the back of its four-month trading announcement this month. The company warned of setbacks including the cancellation of three major contracts and difficulties with services contract renewals. Management said the cancellations were unrelated and that profit expectations for the year remained “in line with the board’s expectations.” However, the market clearly wasn’t convinced and NCC’s share price fell 35% in the blink of an eye. After several years of strong revenue and earnings growth, there’s no doubt NCC Group was priced for perfection. Revenues had grown from £88m in FY2012 to £209m in FY2016, CAGR of a stunning 24%, and as a result, at a share price of 370p, NCC Group was trading on a lofty P/E ratio of 32 times FY2016 earnings. That left little room for error and after warning of setbacks, sentiment towards the company has clearly deteriorated. As a shareholder, it’s extremely frustrating to see NCC Group fall 45%, however I believe there’s a lot more to come from the cyber security specialist over the long term and as such, I won’t be selling my shares. One thing I’ve learnt from investing in smaller companies than the FTSE giants is that the ride often isn’t smooth. Growth can be lumpy and acquisitions can take time to integrate. However NCC Group is operating in a fast growing industry and I believe the fundamental outlook for the company remains strong. Group revenues for the four months increased by 36% to £79.6m including organic growth of 21% and forward order books and renewals stood at £108.8m, up from £71.9m this time last year. With city analysts forecasting earnings per share of 12.8p for FY2017, NCC’s forecast P/E ratio is now just 15.6 which I believe is a steal for a company with NCC’s growth prospects.

rivaldo: The latest forecasts, all post the latest trading update, are as follows N+1 Singer : this year 12.64p EPS, 5.12p divi, next year 14.6p EPS, 5.63p divi Shore Capital : this year 10.2p EPS, 5.2p divi, next year 12.6p EPS, 5.7p divi Cannaccord : this year 10.8p EPS, 5.1p divi, next year 13.4p EPS, 5.6p divi This puts NCC on a current year P/E of 15 to 19, dropping to 13 to 16 next year. Even the divi yield looks useful now! IMO in the next 2-3 years NCC's share price could go anywhere from back up to 350p to say 500p-700p. Whether it goes down a few more pence from here is pretty immaterial - this is a quality company in a huge growth sector which has had some one-off glitches and will recover. Unless it gets taken over first.

andrewbaker: The announcement recently has spooked quite a few, especially as the p/e has jumped from around 20 to around 80, due to the drop in eps. The business is in a growth area, and had been doing well. What the true reason is for the caution, is hard to be sure about; hence people such as Fidelity selling a lot recently, which hasn't helped the share price. I feel that the drop has been overdone. So, recovery should be on the way if we believe what's been said, plus this business is small enough, and priced in £ sterling, so a bid is not beyond possibility. On balance, I'm holding my position. If significant buying happens in the nearish future, suggesting others have similar thoughts, I may even add.

igoe104: By Edward Sheldon - Tuesday, 31 May, 2016 | More on: ARMNCC While London is slowly becoming recognised as a global technology hub, when it comes to investing, it’s fair to say that there’s not an abundance of high quality tech companies listed in the UK. Having said that, here are two strong performing UK-based tech stocks with plenty of future growth potential. Smartphone technology It’s almost impossible to mention UK technology stocks and not mention ARM Holdings (LSE: ARM). ARM develops the microprocessor technology at the heart of many digital electronic devices including smartphones, tablets, sensors and servers. There’s every chance you’ll use ARM technology today without even knowing it. ARM is a big player in the smartphone market and concerns about future smartphone growth have seen the company’s share price stutter recently. And while smartphone growth may indeed stall, you can be sure that ARM won’t be standing still. The company has a strong focus on R&D, and this should help propel the tech giant’s revenues going forward. In 2015, ARM invested £217m in R&D to broaden the product portfolio, and another £74m was invested in acquisitions to accelerate product development and create new revenue streams. One area I’m particularly excited about in relation to ARM is the Internet of Things (IoT). In layman’s terms, this basically means devices talking to each other. It’s an enormous growth market and one that ARM has large aspirations to be part of. As one of the most popular tech stocks in the world, ARM has often traded on eye-watering multiples. And with the company’s strong record of revenue and earnings growth, combined with high cash flow generation and very little debt, it’s not hard to understand why ARM has been such a popular stock for growth investors. After a recent share price correction, ARM’s P/E ratio now stands at around 28 times next year’s earnings. Although this seems a little high at face value, given that ARM has grown its revenues at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 19% over the last five years, this P/E ratio is probably justified. ARM Holdings is a high quality company, and while its share price may have plateaued for now, I’m confident the growth story isn’t over here. Cyber security specialist In terms of hot sectors, it doesn’t come much hotter than cyber security right now. High on the agenda for any business leader, cyber security is a huge growth area and one company well positioned to capitalise on this theme is £800m market cap NCC Group (LSE: NCC). Based in Manchester, NCC Group has plans to become the leading player in the expanding global cyber security market, as advanced threats continue to drive security spending. A rapid acquisition spree in recent years has seen revenues grow from £47.6m in 2010 to £133.7m in 2015, a CAGR of almost 23%, and shareholders have done very well in this time, with the share price rising from around 100p five years ago to almost 300p today. A trading update in late April revealed strong momentum across the group, with revenue in the 10 months to the end of March growing at an impressive 60% year-on-year. On a P/E ratio of 27 times next year’s earnings, NCC Group isn’t trading cheaply, but this is an exciting company with potential for plenty of growth on the horizon. While there's every chance these stocks could boost your portfolio returns, if you're looking to really grow your portfolio over the long term I'd highly recommend reading this report from The Motley Fool: 10 steps to making a million in the market.
