|WHI have a buy note with 172p target:-
This morning’s news from WYG shows how the business continues to shine
overseas, with €17m of new contracts announced, including a €7m award in
connection with the prestigious Connecta project, which in the longer term has the
potential to add a further €13m. This follows on from the rise in the order book to
£157m announced last month (+35%) and shows that WYG’s business outside the
UK remains in rude health notwithstanding the Brexit vote, which affected equity
market sentiment but has had no material or indeed any impact on the actual
business. This morning’s announcement shows how WYG’s locally managed and
well embedded overseas businesses continue to benefit from EU spending streams
in areas of specialist expertise. The company is expanding its long-standing
advisory role via Connecta (critical infrastructure investment and development in
the West Balkans), while providing assistance elsewhere with development,
governance and aid, as represented by the other contract wins announced today (a
further €10m). With these wins under its belt, the company remains well-positioned
to grow – and by all accounts there is further good potential in the market. Buy.|
|positive RNS today|
|hoping share price holds above 130p then continues the recent rise|
|Anybody know whether WYG is going to be effected by the government's new clampdown on foreign aid contractors?
"Foreign aid contractors that make huge profits and spend taxpayers' money on lavish salaries will be named and shamed for the first time under Government plans.
Priti Patel, the International Development Secretary, has written to all her department's suppliers, demanding that they in future "deliver value for money" for taxpayers. That will include giving a detailed breakdown of employees' salaries as well as profits being made by the company as a result of its contract with the foreign aid department"
|completely unloved despite strong growth. I can't see any broker foreacasts either.|
|Unloved company producing strong growth?|
|bought some late today. let's hope tomorrow's announcement is positive.|
|record results due next week|
|great company, very good credentials based on results RNS I have bought in today|
|great trading update today. should be back in the 140s soon. IMHO.|
|Yes agreed Schober. At 107p, if you use Edison's forecast 2017 EPS (post share options) of 8.4p, then it puts the stock on a 12.7x PE multipe (div yield 1.6%) - which probably looks about right given Turkish exposure, reliance of EUAid funds and in early July the CEO said that UK revenue (70% group sales) cover for CY was only around 50% - adding he was also seeing some caution immediately after BREXIT.
Interesting too, that Edison has only used a sharecount of 68.4m, whereas strictly speaking - there are another 4.5m options (1p each) which are very likely to vest, assuming the shares reach 150p sometime between now and July 2021.|
|Post Brexit funding announcements still coming through|
|Looks like Brexit, possible future lack of EU funding has killed us.|
|600,000 share sale by Henderson the reason for a 10p price fall? But I suppose follows c450,000 last week.|
|good results today IMHO:
'continued strong profit growth and a very significant increase in our order book despite the first half of the year being held back by the EU budget hiatus'.
'continued strong momentum into the new financial year'.
'WYG's total order book at the year end was £150m, an all-time high for the Group'.|
|rising ahead of preliminary results on 7th June|
|Am a recent shareholder of WYG. Likely to be a medium/long term holder. Although heavily dependent on EU funding I particularly liked reading the last slide of their recent presentation hxxp://www.wyg.com/investors/capital-markets-day-event-presentation which states they aspire to reach 15m PBT for 2017. Compared to consensus estimates of ~11m that's quite a difference!|
|Should do, I think this is a solid company, good long-term hold. IMHO.|
|Wonder whether the cap markets day will have any effect? May bring in one or two more serious shareholders.|
