|I held PGH many years ago, and have just looked at the numbers again. My impression is minimal growth in 2017 and a returned to steady growth from 2018. It won't be affected by Brexit or the value of the £, although a significant rise in interest rates would affect the attraction of the share for income. Anything below 400p seems good value, unless I am missing something. I was going to buy some shares but the MMs seem to have plenty of available shares and have cut the price again today. I assume there is an overhang of shares being sold, and the share price won't stabilise until that is cleared.
Can anyone point out any problems that account for the continuing drop in SP, or must it just be the balance of buyers and sellers?
It has never been an exciting share, but IMO it should be good value in the medium to long term at this SP, for those who like boring steady income.|
|Tempted to do a top-up here given today's announcement. It was already in the price, but we are down again. Lets Connect isn't the core business and could easily be ditched. Profit growth next year, but lower. Hardly a catastrophe.|
|THIs salary sacrifice company will be severely impacted by the autumn statement. A good deal of its revenue is derived from non-core salary sacrifices which are going by April|
|Yes, a really significant contract win this one!|

|I believe this share has just hit an all-time high...........recent share price progress has been steadily rising. It is a very well run company achieving record profits at each reporting date with an unbroken record of dividend increases. It also gives a good dividend yield - and pays out quarterly............perhaps others have also noticed this, hence the recent improvement in the share price. Who knows, maybe someone is accumulating?|
|Falling, but no news.|
|Good recent share price performance and decent yield this year.
This must be about the quietest board on ADVFN!|
|Tend to agree Topvest. One of the few companies in this sector who can do a bad job and still make money.|
|Still a solid business this one though. Good results.|
|Sector has become very competitive so new client group acquisition is getting tougher. Also, HR/Reward as a function is getting smarter so opportunities for their type of worksite activity are getting fewer. Need to align their strategy closer to what is going on in the market IMHO.|
|I suppose the write down of value of the IFA side signals lower profits for the forseeable future since the goodwill impairment test would have been done by looking at the discounted value of future cash flows. On the traditional employee benefit side, on the one hand they are having to work hard just to stand still year on year in terms of new accounts and the outlook for numbers employed by those accounts is negative in the next twelve months, while on the other they have a very conservative balance sheet which should see cash released over time and a visable income stream. Overall not very exciting. Nice yield. Sold mine in Jan 08 for £3. Should have bought back at £2 or £2.50 but lacked faith in the market generally rather than PGH specifically. Don't see much reason to buy now.|
|Results out today. They look reasonable, though the market seems disappointed. Views?|
|Another good rise today, in a falling market.
We could use a new thread title, though. Those days are long past!|
|Hold recommendation from Growth Company Investor
|A bit of a negative reaction to the results today. Maybe spooked by the higher level of claims paid out?|
|Cash generative business with strong BS. I'm in this sector so know them well. What I would say is that the market is getting more challenging and their competitors are getting smarter. That said they should still continue to perform and have a strong management team.|
|Decent results and dividends payments, quarterly as well!
who are the ouse brokers? Any research around on this company?|
|Looks like a big buy this afternoon propelling this up. More to come?|
|Seems to have held together better than the directors had anticipated hence the statement about the dividend being held and the share buying this afternoon. I am surprised the market didn't mark them up more|
|They had a good year last year. Having experience in this sector the down turn actually works in their favour as more employers are looking for low cost options and PG can provide this.|
|Anyone got a view on what to expect in the results on monday? I guess with unemployment rising, companies cutting costs and a generally less competitive employment market where fringe benefits are lesss significant, sentiment will be cautious at best. The share buy back and director dealing in December should mean that the results themselves are fairly decent.|
|This is a rare share, making a new high today.|
