|Andycapp1,It's hard not to agree with you. It certainly explains while II's will not touch this share with a barge pole and hence the pitiful share price. A fair reflection. Those that were burnt after the last institutional fundraising at 93p will certainly never cough up again - though I'm sure they are probably long gone (no doubt at much higher price than today)I'm also not really interested in having a go at other bb users but Azalea, are you for real? Does one really need to be a long suffering, loss making investor in opg to earn the right to be a critic?Your continuous ramped up bilge spouted out about this company as it has clearly failed to live up to expectations is quite unbelievable. You saw fit to liquidate most of your holding after the last results - even you don't believe your own nonsense. And here you are again! One can only guess that you've taken another bite of the (rotten?) Apple!Personally I used to really believe in this company (having first invested just after they floated and had a lowest purchase price of 27p). With obvious justification I feel that opg have failed to live up to mine and many other people's expectations - that is not sour grapes but fact which is reflected in the woeful share price.Strangely enough I still follow the company with interest - as an investor I have been luckily to make some decent money trading this share over a long period. I am struggling to see how investor interest will return in the near term and this may provide a good trading entry point. Jozo|
A fair statement. Add to that the number of critics who do not even hold any shares in OPG.|
|Jozo all good but I'm afraid this is almost entirely of their own making. I have met the management several times and they seem blind to the rules, if you like "the game", of being a listed company in the UK. They appoint an exec Chairman, a terrible flouting of UK governance. They put out awful RNS's which cite the death of a politician as a reason for missing numbers. They invest in solar, palpably a terrible investment when measured against the IRR of buying back their own equity. If they want to "do solar" then "do it" with a capital partner so that OPG's overall IRR is boosted. They have anaemic non exec directors who seem unable to provide proper guidance, or if they do then the execs simply ignore it. They have been doing this for five years; it wont change. Simple fact is the execs are not aligned with the minority shareholders and the non execs are impotent. That is not an investment I want to make.|
|It's easier to be objective now I'm sitting on the side lines - opg actually did quite well for me over the years I held - I was lucky to sell my holding at 72p (average price c. 45p)
which allowed me to make a commecial property investment in my sipp which is rented by my own company.
I'm certainly not bitter - I feel it is a shame that expectations have been badly managed - of course India being a fast developing new economy is going to have huge issues to deal with as it expands and I agree with the idea that 80% issues are non opg.
I would love to see opg start to consistently beat their guidance with broker upgrades being the norm rather than always seeming to disappoint.
I have a great deal of respect for what has been operationally achieved and hope they can now start to earn back some trust from investors.
Evidence of steady earnings growth over next couple of years as solar starts to roll out would be a huge positive.
With the share price so low they are somewhat boxed into a corner - unable to raise cash in sufficient amount to avoid significant dilution. Therefore they are unable to raise capital for 'big' growth - lead times being another serious consideration.
I actually do believe they are doing the right things - but they have to manage expectations better (including factoring in possible contingencies such as bad weather, rising coal prices, volatile governments decisions)
I hope that things recover for all long suffering holders - I am certainly watching closely and am ready to jump back in should I feel more confident in investing in opg.
Good luck to all.
|It's easier to blame the company rather take responsibility for one's own decision making.
Could the company have done some things better, yes. Are many of the headwinds the fault of the company, no. To apportion blame: 20% company, external factors beyond their control 80%.
The result, an unloved neglected stock with a risk reward opportunity which favours those who position at the current price.
This thread reads like a sob story for angry investors who bought in at higher prices.|
the original goldbug
"have watched the whole 'jam tomorrow scenario' unfortunately fold"
You really should not blame the company for what others have said - AIMHO
|I'm holding fire on any decision until Tues when they release the Q3 update.
|The markets likes to reward companies that have a clear path to growth - as well as needing to create a sense of under promising and over delivering.This company has a dismal record of managing expectations- a dividend might be a bit of a bonus for big family holders but not going to make one bit of difference to most investors.When there are companies such as phtm, cake etc with growing dividend policy combined with constantly upgrading spiral of earnings growth etc the likes of opg will not get a look in with the II'sI have been a (at times very hopeful) investor in opg for the last 8/9 years and have watched the whole 'jam tomorrow scenario' unfortunately fold. Have sold out twice due to serious jitters and concerns and very pleased to now be sitting on the sidelines since getting out just after last results.I could be tempted back in if share price gets to low 40's not because i believe in the company but there would some potential reward from that starting point.The company and its advisors need to understand what is needed and they need to come up with a sustainable plan Going forward that is able to offer clear visibility going forward and well a the ability to surprise on the positive side.Also company needs to be careful to take in to account all the uncertainties of economic/political/weather risks of operating in this part of the world as they offer forward guidance.There's always some bs excuse which after a while doesn't wash with investors.If opg sort all these things out the share price might well recover but not for now I'm afraid.Joe|
|That business with the dividend won't help sentiment. A bit amateur.|
|Plasy the 3rd Q results are out next Tues according to their website.The company has suffered delays during their ambitious plans, but during those delays the share traded around 75-100p.At the end of the day, they've achieved what they said they will do, delivering 750mw (not 700 or 650).Now we have another 180mw in the pipeline.Game of patience versus the market staying irrational.|
|Patience will be rewarded FY 2017 - 2018.|
|In response as to why the shares are so unloved; poor management, poor execution, not minority shareholder friendly etc etc. Just hasn't delivered on earnings and cash flow. In essence, not trusted.|
|I've just had a look at the December 2016 presentation slides & it looks to me as though this share should be circa £1 this year.
The 3rd Quarter results will be out on Monday & will hopefully confirm the strong outlook for 2017.
Why is the S.P. so unloved? Can anyone explain?
Is this a bargain share with a Mkt Cap totally unrepresentative?|
|It's had a lot of tips over the past 3years and not delivered any of them. There's even been a comical 130p target on it from brokers since it was at £1...it squandered that all the way down to 50p with its near constant trip ups. Just suggesting that if you're relying on recommendations for OPG to go up then I'd just check a bit more under the hood. Regards,Source.|
