she-ra: Its bizarre that SDL has such a low share price when one considers that in language translation software it holds an 80% market share and is now helping to expand that market with the first cloud service for translation software and a translators marketplace. That alone would justify this share price but it is also a leader in the field of web content management. The interdependence between language translation and web content management has never been stronger in this ever globalizing world. The £1.5 million purchase of shares by the CEO's partner in December was very encouraging and a massive vote of confidence. I could really see Adobe or Microsoft making a move for this company
rivaldo: Results out - I'm rather glad I sold! Adjusted EPS was down 11% to 33.9p, and the outlook for this year is grim due to increased investment, economic conditions etc. It'll be interesting to see what the revised forecasts are. Long-term I'm sure SDL will thrive, and the new investment will help that process. Short-term is a different matter. In the meantime the share price has fallen to 439p, well below even my mooted 450p, and may fall further given the outlook. I doubt the share price will be going anywhere fast for a while unless an opportunistic bidder comes along. Good luck to holders anyway. There will be money to be made when the turnaround - eventually - comes as SDL is a quality company imho.
hedley2: Share price has now halved in 12 months and shows no sign of support, I know the Finance man is on his way, which never goes down well, any other known reasons?
rivaldo: Peel Hunt now say Sell and forecast just 14.28p EPS this year. I don't know how the share price is holding at these levels - it's either a support operation or the usual bid speculation. Without either of these it's difficult to see the current price being sustained for long imho since there's so much downside on a P/E of over 20 for a company which is in the throes of so much turmoil.
silverfern: I agree- prospective p/e on basis of report today way too high at current share price. SAles will take time to become revenue. I understand they have some debt too- paying that off will compete with their dividend policy at these reduced profit levels
rivaldo: Another profit warning today, though reasonably mild. It'll be interesting to see whether forecasts drop again from the current 28p-29p EPS for this year. The share price could drop to 300p at this rate with no expectation/proof of an upturn until H2 at the earliest per today's RNS.
hedley2: Anyone got any thoughts on the weakness of the share price of late? I know the results did not impress, but they seem to be punished on a regular basis.
rivaldo: Hi flyfisher. Apologies, I've deleted the note already I'm afraid. However, it was only a one-pager, so the conclusion above is a good proportion of it anyway! The reduction in forecasts to 29.3p is quite drastic. It's possible the share price may fall a fair bit further given that the forward P/E remains over 14, so I'll wait on the sidelines for a while yet methinks unless something changes.
rivaldo: LOL! What on earth is bbluesky on about? :o)) It seems I got this one right - today's update is disappointing, with revenues and profits below recently downgraded expectations. Can't see the share price going anywhere fast for a while, but it will certainly remain on my watchlist for re-entry at a suitable point.
rivaldo: Not quite sure what that long post tells us JoshT! Anyway....good to see the share price doing well and breaking upwards.
