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?

chrismcglone: Small batch purchased at under £3 when they were yielding 12%. Given the high % ownership among family members - both serving and retired - I banked on the divi not being cut, as would normally happen when a high yielder has a big share price drop. Only wish I had followed my head and invested more at the time. Instead I chased a few gold juniors and we all know what’s happened there. Dohh!

firtashia: According to stock o pedia, consensus forecast EPS for YE Jan 15 has now been hiked by 25% to 187p, and a decent hike for 2016 too. Given the lack of share price action this has yet to be taken on board by the market. Super stuff.

jeffian: Maybe, but that is huge historically (never mind the effect on an 'average' of a 15000 PER!). The mesne market average over the very long term is 14/15 and, sure as eggs is eggs, it will return there in due course. One of the best examples of my point is Capita (CPI) which showed phenomenal revenue and profit growth and at the peak was valued at something like 150x future earnings. It did indeed make those future earnings, but the share price went nowhere for years as the higher EPS was offset by a PER returning to more normal levels. Don't get me wrong; I love SUS and have been living off the dividend for years and expect it to keep on growing. I'm just not so sure that the share price will always enjoy such a rating.

plasybryn: The chart looks very impressive. Over the last 15 months the share price has doubled. Not bad for a solid plodder with a half decent dividend. I've been very happy with my investment here. Well done guys if you ever pop in to read this.

jeffian: Yes, I've held these for a long time, but they do exactly what I like in a company - focus on growing revenues and profits, pay good dividends and let the share price look after itself. There was a point I considered selling when growth seemed to have stalled and it looked touch-and-go whether they could maintain the divi, but the development of the Advantage car finance business has been a winner and looks to have legs long-term. Looking at my portfolio, like you I have often wondered why I put so little into what turned out to be the most successful shares!

jadeticl: Why did I not have 95% of my portfolio in SUS? It is one of my best buys. Results have been excellent even when doubtors caused a fall in share price. I topped up significantly when they fell below £3, but of course now wish I have invested more heavily. The divi from those shares bought at £3 is superb.The only anxiety these have caused was when they proposed to take them off the main market (and out of my ISAs.)

taylor20: This seems relevant to both SUS & PFG: Affordable loans plan is unveiled Lenders have become stricter since the financial slowdown A new not-for-profit lending scheme is being unveiled aimed at giving manageable loans to financially excluded people. Numis who are still bullish on Provident, had this to say this morning: Government loan scheme - do not see as a significant threat to Provident The government (mainly the DWP) will today announce the launch of an "affordable loans" scheme ("My Home Finance"), which according to the BBC will offer weekly repayment loans of around £500 with APRs of 29.9% to 49.9%. Initially the scheme will launch in the Midlands with 10 branches, with aims to go national in due course. We have spoken to the company and they do not seem very concerned. In fact in a statement to the BBC, a Provident spokesman noted: "This initiative broadens further the range of credit options available to those on lower incomes and introduces yet more competition, which we welcome." Given the APR range (29.9-49.9%), it is the company's view that the government cannot be targeting the core Provident customer base and note that there are a large number of unbanked people in the UK not within the Provident target market. The government target market size (4m) is 33% larger than the Provident target market, further suggesting the government is targeting a different market segment. The Joseph Rowntree Foundation has previously estimated that the breakeven APR for home collected credit is 123% APR with best in class business performance, which on this scale would seem almost impossible in our view. Furthermore, with a government committed to spending CUTS, we do not believe it would want to run a national loan scheme that would COST millions a year in losses. The government is also likely to have a significant political problem in how to deal the inevitable problem of those who borrow and WONT repay (not can't repay) - does the government really want to be seen enforcing repayment by aggressive means given that the target market will be amongst the poorest in the UK? In summary, we do not see this as a significant threat to Provident Financial.We would regard any possible share price weakness as a result of this news as an opportunity to buy Provident. We believe Provident offers both short term income (c.8% yield) and long term growth as impairment normalises and once the company begins growing its loan book again.
