|Hadn't noticed the John Charcol deal - that's a good one|
|Tipped in the IC tomorrow. "Despite a relatively static conveyancing market last year, ULS's market share gains and acquisition means it expects to deliver a better-than-forecast 31 per cent increase in underlying profits. We think its advantageous market position means the momentum can continue. Buy"|
|Found the ULS write up online.
Good informative article.
|Thanks EezyMunny, strangely enough I am visiting someone this morning who normally has the Daily Mail, hopefully will read article later.|
|Just noticed the spike in the share price interceptor, i agree it must have been tipped over the weekend but no idea where?
Certainly not mentioned in scsw like STY this morning!|
|Up 12% at the open with with many small transactions, looks like it has been mentioned somewhere over the weekend.
Anyone any idea where?|
|dlku - that's not what they said in the prospects: market share growth expected to more than offset the market|
|Looks like this is the key for the future growth - 'significant scope' :
'The Group predicts continued strong growth, despite a stable outlook for the housing market. The Board foresees significant scope to continue to increase conveyancing market share, in what remains a highly fragmented market.'
I am in financial services and I can assure you Help to Buy and low interest rates have really boosted the house building industry.|
|ULS Technology To Beat Full Year Market Expectations On Strong Growth
Trading Update and Notice of Results
The Group predicts continued strong growth, despite a stable outlook for the housing market. The Board foresees significant scope to continue to increase conveyancing market share, in what remains a highly fragmented market.
The recently completed investment in HomeOwners Alliance is expected to deliver incremental growth in conveyancing volumes contracted directly with customers via the Company's eConveyancer platform. HomeOwners Alliance will also become the platform through which the Group will promote its Estate Agency comparison service, Estateagent4me.
The Board anticipates further growth in the year ahead as it continues both to increase market share in its chosen verticals and benefit from new contract wins.
|That's quite a big beat of >£1m on revenue and £0.2m on PTP market forecasts. Should yield about 4% on these numbers, which is pretty good for an AIM stock with growth prospects.|
|Always like a company that beats market expectations. This should move the price, but not sure it will remove many of the sceptics on the UK housing market. But this looks a structural change in the conveyancing market that ULS is leading, along with fixed price estate agents.|
|Its had a great run, but I dont much like this statement from the update.
market activity has decreased since the end of the summer as the low numbers of properties listed for sale with estate agents begins to flow through to the Group's market
|There's a share price reaction now, 18BT.|
|Good update this morning. Amazed there is no share price reaction or comment on here. Its a growth company PE of 15-16x with a forward yield of 3+%.|
|Decent update - shows they can outperform the housing market.|
|Just had another looksee.
Numis 27/11/14 ADD. Year to 31/3/15 (f) eps/div - 3.6p/1.3p and 2016 3.9/2.17p.
Level 2... 51k v 40k
Sp looks likely to go higher.
|Steady buying going on here.....nicely recovered.
|I always said...I wasn't sure what the attraction was here|
|What broker floated this junk?
Propensity to go bust in the next downturn|
|I got stopped out on the 16th Oct but in spite of the results I think its more about timing than the business model. If this had listed in 2010 it would have been a flyer. Its obviously going to be very cyclical & I agree it needs to widen its customer base. Worth watching after the next recession or the next housing stimulus whenever that is.|
|Finance director must (feel like/be) a pleb having been close to the shortfall in numbers and still bought shares|
|I did at first. However I think this half is likely to be the slightly stronger one, so I think 2.5m profit might be closer than 2.86? I also sold at about 50p having bought the post IPO dip. Absent growth and the PE needs to be quite low so in hindsight it seems fair, or indeed maybe not far enough.|
|annualised 8.2m is 16.4m - so a miss on turnover by 3.2m
annualised underlying profit of 1.43m is 2.86m so a miss of a 240k.
I'm not buying or holding here but does anyone think the reaction is harsh?|
