Did you find anything of interest over the weekend Minerve? I got a lengthy email from their investor relations folk that read as a load of bluff and baloney not to mention being written in a multitude of fonts which suggests several people were involved in carefully drafting a reply that said nothing but wouldn't drop them in the sticky stuff with the regulator. Smacks to me of someone who's been caught trying to hide something and realises they've been caught.

Interesting points guys and I agree with sippguru. Good corporate communications is openness and transparency and not 'sweeping things under the carpet'. Will look further into this over the weekend. If BOD start to do things like this it is a signal to sell IMO. You can't do good business with bad people.

They don't seem to be confirming anything regarding Glo other than it being closed to new business, so no longer a pilot, just collecting the £8M loan book out. Seems a bit odd that having mentioned Glo in every update for a couple of years there is no mention at all this time and the site clearly shows closed to new business. Compounded by the last update stating they were going full steam ahead with Glo this year. As a shareholder i feel misled. I wonder what the FCA would have to say about this.

Well spotted ; no mention of glo at all in the TU. Are they arguing that it is still a pilot?

Trading update seems misleading. The Glo website shows guarantor lending is closed to new business and when called they say they don't intend to reopen yet the TU doesn't mention it and even says they have a new platform for guarantor. Makes no sense, surely they're not hiding things from shareholders?

Yes the market in this is bizarre, but good for trading. Fallen back again even after today's strong TU.

£32 breached . Looking back at the £21.25 low post Brexit , I am struggling to see quite what fundamentally has changed here other than sentiment , to account for a 50% share price rise. I see Woodford has been buying and now holds over 16% of the shares ; an impressive collection. I wonder if we will carry on back up to £36 again?

£31 breached again. I see the broker consensus remains pretty strong ; Shore have tweaked up their forecast FWIW The nonsense of some broker forecasts is exemplified by the Liberum hold note with a target price of £22.56.

I think you can safely call that a solid statement. I am surprised the share price is only up 45p this morning. The corporation tax hit is the only moderator in some stunning numbers. Barely a whisper about Brexit. Highlights Strong group profit performance and further dividend increase -- First half adjusted profit before tax(1) up 17.6% to GBP148.9m (2015: GBP126.6m) and adjusted earnings per share(1) up 10.7% to 77.9p (2015: 70.4p). -- First half statutory profit before tax up 48.9% to GBP165.4m (2015: GBP111.1m) and basic earnings per share up 39.2% to 86.0p (2015: 61.8p). -- Stable annualised return on assets(2) of 15.7% (2015: 15.6%), after absorbing the impact of the 8% bank corporation tax surcharge on Vanquis Bank's profits from 1 January 2016. -- Interim dividend per share up 10.2% to 43.2p (2015: 39.2p).

Hit that limit - lowest buy of the day so far ; I like that. This Brexit business seems to me a classic opportunity to make a few quid on the market ; the oft quoted statement that the market hates uncertainty is a bit self-fulfilling. If this is really the case then whatever the vote the market will bounce up again. Obviously some stocks more than others , but it seems particularily bizarre to me that some stocks like Utilities have little exposure to the potential changes , yet have also dropped. Prov is basically a UK company with Sterling loans , having long divested the overseas components to IPF. The wider economic uncertainties obviously have a bearing here , but they have since this business started all those yrs ago.

I think any negatives compared to 6 months ago were already included in the price. At this price it's a bargain, but the market is twitchy, especially until the EU vote is out of the way.

Read Panmure Gordon & Co's note on PROVIDENT FINANCIAL PLC (PFG), out this morning, by visitinghxxps://www.research-tree.com/company/GB00B1Z4ST84 "Vanquis remains the key growth driver for this business, and with customer numbers growth slowing this will be negative for this high expectation stock. YoY Vanquis Bank customer numbers have increased 6.2%, but this compares to 18% for this quarter last year and 9.9% for FY2015. YoY receivables growth of 18% is also lower that the 25% reported in Q12015 ..."

Looks like the IMS is being badly received by market this morning , for reasons that elude me. Outlook All of the group's businesses have made a good start to the year, trading in line with or above internal plans and the sound credit quality across all three divisions provides the foundation for another good performance in 2016.
