andrewbyles: Thank you ali47fish. I've checked the other LSE website and it says 159.75, so pretty much the same For a very brief moment I was hoping that maybe Softbank were going to announce a takeover at a 50% premium to the share price and that was why the buy price had jumped! It now looks as though it hasn't and there's just an error on ADVFN's website (and strangely Barclay's stockbrokers too). More realistically, we should receive a trading update at the AGM a week on Wednesday and hopefully that will assist the share price.
andrewbyles: Lots of people have commented on the results loganair, but they're in "Norcros Plc NXR" thread. I agree Solrei that the fall is overdone. The market is irrational at the moment - yesterday Persimmon issued a positive trading statement and its share price fell considerably; today Topps Tiles issued a positive trading statement and saw its share price fall too. I posted this link in the other thread the other week and remain of the view that it's encouraging:
andrewbyles: Another set of impressive reports. The increase in the dividend, the recommitment to the growth strategy, the success of the acquisitions already made and the indication that there are more in the pipeline will hopefully push the share price higher.
shauney2: Good quality acquisition.No doubt it will do nothing for the share price. Are these going to look cheap forever?
simon templar qc: Looks to me like institutions are continuing to pick up stock and any institutional selling outweighed now by buying. So that should see a stronger share price. One would expect the share price to slowly gain traction as time goes on, although the markets are weak at present investors are more inclined now to be careful where they invest and its stock like Norcross which could rebound quicker in tough times due to its strong management and track record.
rivaldo: New report out from Edison just now - they go for 19.8p EPS this year and 22.1p EPS next year. Plus 6p and 6.5p dividends respectively - a pretty good 3%+ yield: Http:// Conclusion: "In H116, Norcros has seen good revenue progress from both divisions and we expect to see higher profit when results are reported on 12 November. In addition, we expect further y-o-y progress in H2 and full year expectations are unchanged. Our recent initiation note highlighted growth aspirations, which are yet to be reflected in the share price." "Valuation: Share price gains to follow good newsflow Factoring in a 1:10 share consolidation at the end of September, Norcros’s share price has traded around the 200p level for the last three months, having hit a high of 225p in July. Having recently initiated coverage, we maintain our view that prospects are not fully reflected in current valuation multiples (ie FY16e P/E 10.1x and EV/EBITDA adjusted for pensions cash of 5.8x)."
rivaldo: Nice summary from Paul Scott - he has a 300p target price: http :// "Norcros (LON:NXR) Share price: 209.6p (up 0.8% today) No. shares: 61.0m Market cap: £127.9m (at the time of writing, I hold a long position in this share) H1 trading update - this group describes itself as, "the market leading supplier of innovative branded showers, taps, bathroom accessories, tiles and adhesives" - how refreshing to read a simple, plain English description of what the company does (a rarity today!). The key part confirms that H1 is in line; Group underlying operating profit1 in the first half is expected to be in line with the Board's expectations. Other points; •H1 sales £118.7m (up 9.3% vs LY, up 12.0% on constant currency basis) •Encouragingly, 6.5% of that 12.0% is LFL organic growth •Balance of 5.5% non-organic growth came from Croydex acquisition •UK LFL growth +1.8%, S.Africa +16.9% •UK retail sector "remains challenging" •UK trade sector "good year on year growth" - new house building helped •Croydex performing in line with expectations •Net debt £29.5m (2014: £20.0m) •Cash outflow of £20.1m for Croydex acquisition in the period Outlook comments - All of our businesses continue to perform well notwithstanding the mixed market conditions and the recent weakening of the Rand. The improved manufacturing efficiencies in Johnson Tiles UK have been sustained and we have made good progress in integrating the Croydex business into the Group. The Board remains confident that the Group will continue to make progress in line with market expectations for the year to 31 March 2016. That all sounds pretty good to me. Valuation - since the company is trading in line, these valuation figures should be accurate; It's difficult to find companies performing well, on a single digit PER, but here we have one. Forward PER of only 8.99 looks a bargain to me. Trouble is, it's looked a bargain for quite some time! There again, the price seems to be holding on to the higher levels established in the summer of this year. Bear in mind there is a large pension scheme here, which is a negative, so valuation needs to factor that in. Stockopedia likes it, with a StockRank of 93. My opinion - I like it - this is a long-term holding of mine, and it's strikingly cheap compared with practically everything similar out there. I particularly like that S.Africa is powering ahead, shrugging off currency issues. The company is making very sensible acquisitions, with the intention of growing the business substantially. As long as they don't take on too much debt, then that's a good strategy in my view. Debt is under control at the moment, and remember that there is also freehold property on the balance sheet, so personally I tend to offset freeholds against debt, when valuing companies. I think fair value here is about 300p, but am not holding my breath over when we are likely to get there! It's a boring share, but it pays nice divis, and at some point should re-rate nicely. That could happen very quickly (e.g. on a takeover approach), so I'd rather be in it, than sitting on the sidelines and miss any potential big move. I'm still getting used to the new figures, post 10 for 1 consolidation. Still, you only have to move the decimal point one space to the left, to go back to "old money"! I think it was a sensible move to do the share consolidation - although it shouldn't make any difference, it now looks a more sensible share, whereas a 20p share looks a bit mickey mouse, particularly for institutional shareholders. Also, the price being quoted in 0.25p increments was clunky when it was 20p - each increment was quite wide, at 1.25% of the price. Whereas now it's c. 209p, and the price is moving in 1p increments, that's a much better 0.5% per price increment. With a low valuation, and some good points in today's in line statement, I'd guess that the price is probably more likely to go up, than down".
imranawan: Loginair, I agree with your points about the NXR share price being disappointing. I've only held it for around 9 months, and its done very little in that time. I bought into Topps and sold out shortly after they issued their interims, and am kicking myself as they have risen strongly since then. I also agree that NXR appears to be undervalued, but I can't see any share price rise in the short-term. I think the catalyst in share price would be if they made an acquisition to achieve their aim of increasing revenues to £400m.
loganair: Over the past 3 years I am disappointed at the current share price. I used to hold Topps Tiles and sold at 56p and reinvested in NXR at 10.65p. Topps Tiles share price continued to fall to 20p and under a heavy weight of debt, there was even talk of it going under. Since then Topps share price has risen to a little over 130p while NXR to just 18p.
loganair: For me the NXR share price is not really that important as long as I'm not making a loss. What is important to me and matters is the dividend, as long as it rises by 5% or more then I'm very happy - and the company has reduced it's debt from the previous report.
