|hybrasil: 1 x turnover gives a share price of 75p.
Is that reasonable?|
|rainmaker: share price coming under renewed pressure.
|rainmaker: Patrick just remember that sometimes Institutional Investors as sellers of a stock for absolutely no other reason than a low share price or low market capitalisation even if the stock concerned is crazily undervalued.
Thanks for your comments about the Value thread which I'm shortly closing down.
|rainmaker: Agreed Knigel but in the absence of any news the share price is being driven by sentiment.

You have to wonder whether the latest share price move is merely extending the 15p/25p trading range or a "suckers rally" sucking in buying before going much lower. We're broken into new low ground which is obviously a bad sign. It's not unusual for a share price to rise and hit the previous support (and now resistance) level before going lower.There's a whole load of Investors that have bought over the last year in the wake of the profits warning so it might be difficult for the share price to make progress from current levels into that "overhead supply" Are Investors going to sell out at breakeven or add further? I think trading volume will be the key determinant.Watching with interest.
|she-ra: Geheimnis2 - I watch Smart Technologies, Promethens bigger rival, share price and nothing seems to be happening.It seems like this sector is totally unloved. I thought it was a market that would keep on growing but with products from Ebeam and HP with their poocket whiteboard products im starting to wonder if Promethean and Smart might go under.Yes all these companies products will get cheaper but HP and Ebeams are always going to be cheaper to produce and transport.To me these products,even though I havent actually seen one in the flesh, seem to be the future.|
|salpara111: As someone who is sitting on an epic loss at PVCS don't get too carried away by balance sheet strength. PVCS share price is less than half the companys' net cash position. This can easily get walked down from here.|
|nickg2: Revenues and earnings for 2011 will be down sharply on 2010, with broker Execution Noble expecting £216.5 million sales and 6.5p of earnings per share (EPS), after stripping out one-offs. That would be down from £235.3 million and 9.3p respectively for 2010. But the broker is eyeing revenue of £230 million and £250 million respectively this year and next. That translates into EPS of 7.7p and 9.5p, slashing the price/earnings (PE) ratio from 7.5 to six. A near three-times covered payout of 2.5p per share this year implies a 4.3% yield too. A continuation of improving trading trends in this month's (28 Feb) full-year results could spark a sudden switch in mood, putting a potentially significant rerating on the cards. A PE of 10 by the year of 2012 would imply a 95p share price, 65% up from here, while Execution reckons a surge towards 116p is likely.|
|masurenguy: Promethean World profits plummet on US cuts
Investors in Promethean World were handed their latest setback after the interactive whiteboard maker unveiled a 65% drop in pre-tax profits and said it expected government austerity cutbacks to continue to make trading "challenging". The company which has seen its shares fall 70% since its flotation in March last year made profits of £3.3m in the six months to the end of June after revenues fell 11.9% to £107.8m. However, Promethean's shares rose 4 to 59.75p after the company said the rate of revenue decline slowed in its second quarter, despite tough comparables in the first half of 2010. Trading comparables are set to become softer in the second half.
Jean-Yves Charlier, chief executive, remained cautious despite the share price rise. "We expect our markets to remain challenging, due to government austerity measures and the resulting public sector budgetary constraints," he said. Promethean has been hit as government cutbacks and the moribund pace of the recovery in western markets have hit sales of its technology. The company said it had spent £1.4m on restructuring costs in the half and had consolidated three sales forces globally into one. Promethean cut its interim dividend from 1.05p to 0.8p, payable on September 24.
|masurenguy: A 'Speculative Buy' from last month !
Fully quoted on the London market, PRW is a world leader in the rapidly growing global market for interactive learning technology. Its 'ActiveClassroom' product is an industry-leading comprehensive classroom solution. The company was floated on the London Market on 17/3/2010 at around 200p. At the end of April it published an Interim Management Statement which revealed first quarter revenues up 49% to £53.9m and reported that the positive trend was continuing. Shareholders were assured that 2010's earnings were set to emerge at the higher end of expectations.
The bad news which emerged mid 2010 was that US customers were savagely cutting back on orders. This ultimately pushed the share price to below 50p, some 70% below the issue price. The fall in the share price made it the worst performing new issue of the year.
There are signs that the company is recovering and the share price has moved off the bottom to the current level. The Chairman remains optimistic that the figures for the year to 31/3/10 will not disappoint. Three research houses have recently published research on the PRW. The consensus is that pre-tax profits could emerge at around £23m. This implies that the shares could be trading on a prospective PER of 8.6 and a yield of 3.6%. Consider as a speculative buy.
