gfrae: Lotm,all those thing you say are presumably the reason that it's at a 33% discount to NAV. Another point to consider is: how realistic is the Wilson Bros share price beareing in mind that it has one significant majority shareholder ?
topvest: I've doubled up here and at Hansa trust. Ocean Wilsons has held up very well really in adverse market conditions. Indeed in local currency the Wilson & Sons share price is holding up very well. It's always difficult to predict the bottom. There are signs that the share price is stabilising, but this has happened once before. I'm more than happy to hold long term. At some point they may still have a demerger of the investment portfolio. Emerging market currencies are bound to bounce back at some point, but maybe 6 months or so off would be my guess. Of course, we may all be wrong and this is a value trap, but I think not.
topvest: Just doubled up here. Hopefully, the share price is starting to stabilise. Great company with a good long term future I think.
topvest: Yes, but there is great opportunity in this share in my opinion. We are not far off the whole share price being represented by the investment portfolio (worth £4.50 a share) and Wilson & Sons (a great business) thrown in for free. Watching closely and already doubled my position in Hansa Trust.
trytotakeiteasy: Piedro - markets look ahead. at the recent share price Wilson Sons is on around 11X forecast earnings for 2016 and 9.3X for 2017. The yield for both years is 5%. So if the share price of Wilson Sons picks up, which it should over time, and the Brazil real at least stops depreciating then Ocean Wilsons asset value will go higher. The crux is when the worsening of the Brazilian economy starts to decelerate and we can see the corner in sight. Things should turn around by 2016 at the latest. These are my working assumptions anyway. The bottom line is that Wilson Sons is a great long-term stock which should see strong long-term results. Spoke too soon. Share price down again!! At least the investment portfolio balance of £4.72 a share should provide some support. Now 53% of the market value of Ocean Wilsons.
mozy123: hi, New here - can someone answer my very basic question? The book value of the investment portfolio and the holding in wilson sons far exceeds the current share price. Why does the company (wilson holdings) not sell off the assets? Has the company ever been fully valued by the market?
trytotakeiteasy: Looks ok to me.. I think he fixed it.. although I just follow it on Google finance.. gives a longer-term share price performance...
trytotakeiteasy: If this update is so bad why was the share price of Wilson Sons higher?
last of the mohicans: Piedro, It's a while since I wrote anything on OCN. Your posts are very useful to say the least, on keeping me up to date. OCN has failed its shareholders for a number of years now, simply by poor performance, its value (share price )is less than it was in 2010 I think. Its peak performance was from 2003 to 2007 pre the financial crisis. Since Wilson&Sons was listed the shares have not done very well - sadly I never liked the investment portfolio, however the move into private equity looks like it will pay off in the next couple of years. Just wish they would get rid of the other stuff, but they won't to keep Hansa happy and in effect keep control of the company. That's why so few people know about it, or see its potential because unless the 2 main shareholders are prepared to contemplate offers, nothing can happen. The company has invested vast amounts of money into Wilson&Sons over these last few years and if they were getting anything like the return on the money invested (return on capital employed) that they got from 2003-07 then the share price would be way, way higher, as would the pittance that they now pay-out as a dividend. They have expanded for the future and in time shareholders should eventually be rewarded. The container terminals are a major part of the underperformance, you just need to look back at the old annual reports to see that. RG is only working around 50% of what it could do, so its profitability is way down on what it could be and its been like that for over 3 years now, even with $200M+ spent on improvements. I'm guessing that it needs to do 40%+ of capacity to simply break-even. I remember when it was doing 45 moves an hour and working at 120% of optimum capacity and making serious money for the company. So the quicker they get this terminal to 75%+ of capacity the better for all. It would be good to see them trying to buy some other container terminals to, even outside Brazil with some of the investment portfolio money to. I did note a tweet from Wilson&Sons that said last month (October I think) was the second best in RG's history. I presume much of that would be down to these new once a week shipments to Africa. Hopefully this will expand rapidly in 2014. LOTM
strollingmolby: Now reiterated by OCN in this morning's IMS: Wilson Sons valuation = £13.37 per OCN share Investment portfolio = £ 4.45 per OCN share Wilson Sons is growing at a fair old lick (revenue +29%, op profit +89%) so the OCN share price will need to appreciate just to maintain the level of discount !
