|Bid target? For an income fund.....|
|Personally I'm delighted and surprised to see the RNS about The increased shareholding, that bodes very well for us going forward, let's hope that the recent supply is drying up and that we are headed back toward the 12 month highs. GLA|
|Doubtful, but never say never. Not sure who'd buy it. They're building a highly successful laundry business which could be sellable except part of the success is down to the relationships PHTM have with the supermarkets etc so that's not necessarily easily sold. Better they simply make buckets of cash and hand that back to shareholders.|
|'Is Phtm a bid target?'Discuss|
|Since August that's entirely possible or it could be a mix. Doesn't necessarily mean another large seller has 'appeared on the scene'.
I'm taking this RNS as positive news.|
|Do you know that for sure?
Schroders has only moved from 13.843% to 14.155% since the previous Holdings RNS. Could they not have been hoovering up Retail shares over the past couple of months?|
My point was that there is another large seller appeared on the scene.|
|revoman, sorry got my weightings for H1 and H2 wrong. Just had a look at last yr and H1 2015 EPS was 4.98, so yes you are right, should be closer to 6p on *Friday*.
Making way too many mistakes today (also at work!), think I'm in Xmas holiday mode already :)|

If Schroders are buying - then someone else is selling."
Thanks for that pearl eeza...and cheer up. Perhaps you could have expanded on that point to say that if the buyer's demand is greater than the seller's supply at a particular price then the price might have to go up.|
|Smokeybenchod, it's not that I'm simply "hoping" for 6p (as a lot of people just over-optimistically hope for figures), calculations from PHTM's statements and brokers comments suggest the figure will be around 6p.|
|no idea why i thought they were tomorrow - apologies!|
|From the above RNS
"Photo-Me (PHTM.L), the instant-service equipment group, intends to announce its interim results for the six months ended 31(st) October 2016 on Friday 9(th) December 2016."
It is Thursday Dec 8 tomorrow.
Friday comes the day after Thursday.
|revoman, EPS of 6 tomorrow would be nice :) My guess is more likely closer to 4.5-5p which is still ahead of forecasts so I'm expecting a re-rating.|
|If Schroders are buying - then someone else is selling.|
|haha yes poor plebs|
|Good news...Schroders increasing :)
Hopefully it'll prove very significant in the short term, given they had been a seller earlier in the year.|
|Good, the market will then take that on board and make it look less ridiculous.|
|revo - if that's so, then FY=12p min. so P/E = 12.5.
Fat divi makes that P/E look ridiculous...|
|From the Finncap note a couple of months back: "While current trading is a beneficiary of Sterling weakness, near-term FX volatility prevents us from upgrading our FY forecasts at this stage. In the event, however, that Euro and Yen exchange rates remain at current levels or lower, existing forecasts have considerable upside risk.
Strong trading reported for the first four months of FY17E (May-August 2016 with turnover +18% YoY and pre-tax profit +14% YoY, reflecting the benefits of investment and currency tailwinds. Approximately half of H1 profits are traditionally achieved in September and October."
I love that final comment. So traditionally half of the H1 profits come from the couple of months when sterling has been even weaker – that’s TRADITIONALLY, never mind this year.
PLUS, with the number of Revolution machines in service increasing by approx 100/month, and with Sterling having weakened even further over the last month or so of the trading period, and the period pre-Brexit vote (i.e. May 1st - June 22nd) Sterling having been that much stronger, with the above comments in the update a couple of months back and the FinnCap note it seems highly likely to me that profits will be up by ~20%, ie eps to around 6p for the first 6 month period.|
|I don't think so either because tomorrow is Thursday!|
|I don't think so. They have set their dividend policy.|
|special dividend tomorrow|
|Chart looks good for 160 plus very quickly|
|Most likely institutional IMHO , also great to see all the large after hours trades being declared, I haven't seen that much trading for a while.|
