jeffian: As mentioned above, the SUS share price seems decidedly nervy recently and I wonder whether it has to do with reports in today's papers that the Govt are thinking of cracking down on car finance schemes which seem to be a big factor behind the increase in private debt. From what I have read, they seem to be mainly worried about the contract hire/leasing deals offered by dealers and manufacturers but I am not clear whether this is the model used by S&U's Advantage Finance. I get the impression theirs is a are traditional 'Hire Purchase' sort of scheme. Is this a threat to S&U's business model?
tudes100: Loan book has increased significantly in scale due to the funds that became available from the sale of the home credit division last yr. As a result it looks like the proportion of impaired loans has increased & they've probably pushed the envelope a little more aggressively than they have in the past. Worth considering though that approx 11-12% of loans were impaired in both 2010 & 2011 and this does not seem to have hampered progress in both profitability & the share price since. S&U have a reputation for managing the business conservatively which is exactly the reason John Lee had a long term shareholding in the company and why many here are happy to be patient and trust the Coombs family. I guess what it really comes down to is whether you think the company has the expertise to manage the level of impairment through the complete business cycle. Have a look at business performance between 2007-2009 which should give you a very clear answer in my opinion. Always appreciate another view though Aleman !
haywards26: These should be at a share price of around £24-25 imo
nfs: HaywardsSpot onToday's trading statement is excellent and refers to the uncoupling of share price and prospects
haywards26: The share price decline over the last few weeks, is very much out of balance with the news and results coming out of the company, supported by some director purchases also. The last trading update was very bullish. The management team are experienced and have a strategy that is being progressed.
nfs: The share price is going in the wrong direction!Anyone got a view as to why?
cwa1: Yawwwwwwwnnnnn :-)
plasybryn: Should get our dividend and special pay-out later today. I wonder how many investors will reinvest all or some of that, pushing the share price higher?
jeffian: flyposter, This is probably more a long-term investor's, rather than a trader's, share and it may well be an appropriate time for you to move onto other opportunities, but you ask what your are 'missing' and I think it is this. The core Home Credit business has been very flat/low growth for many years. There was a period prior to the Advantage car finance business when profits were static for several years and the dividend barely covered. Advantage transformed the company and has provided all of the growth. Besides being a 'mature' business, Home Credit is also likely to encounter increasing political interference and regulation. All in all, it makes strategic sense to ditch it and focus on the growth areas of car finance and the proposal to become a niche bank. Yes, of course this will result in a smaller business, but the plan is to return part of the value of the existing company to you in the form of cash, whilst retaining your shareholding in the smaller growth business. Hopefully, the two combined equal the current share price! Going forward, profits, earnings per share and dividends would have to be reduced on a like-for-like basis which is why I am assuming (see previous posts) that the return of capital will be accompanied by a share re-structuring so that eps and divs per share will be maintained, but you will have less shares. I note that the opportunity you are moving/have moved to is LTC. Did you buy before today's takeover announcement (happy timing!) or did you buy on the announcement?
