tole: Group (LON:ALU) – very undervalued, use this cheap-buying opportunityYesterday's announcement of its Interim results to end December last year, apparently disappointed investors.They took the shares down from 222.5p overnight to just 195p at the worst.That they closed last night at 217.5p.At the group's AGM last October the building products group had already warned that material prices were rising, as well as suffering supply shortages – so why was the reaction so bearish?I consider that it was overdone and that it gives investors an excellent buying opportunity to load up on an undervalued quality stock that offers an attractive 4.5% yield.The group's broker finnCap currently has a price objective of 315p on the shares, which they not only rate as a 'buy' but clearly predict significant medium-term upside potential.For the full year to end June their analyst David Buxton is estimating revenues of £97m, profits of £10.8m, earnings of 23.6p and a 10p dividend per share.The broker has compared the group's rating to a dozen other such companies in its sector. It shows a 'mean' price earnings ratio of 16.9 times – compared to the sub-9 times of Alumasc Group.Both the company and the broker expect a much stronger second half year, confirming that the group is well in line to meet current expectations.There was a fairly heavy dealing volume yesterday of almost 200,000, as against the daily average of 32,791 shares traded.I repeat that this fallback is an excellent piece of timing in taking stock out now.
km18: From WealthOracleAM.... The building products industry, where today’s company operates, has suffered less than what anyone might predict during the last 18 months. Many of the big companies managed to adapt quickly and address challenges in operations in the most efficient way. Our small cap pick from today managed to rebound relatively quickly with performance this year in line with the crisis-free 2019. Over the summer the sector suffered from excess demand compared to supply driven by the sharpest rise in commercial work since September 2020. As a result, prices were propelled to all-time highs.
zangdook: How is ALU a "penny stock"?
tole: top green penny stockSupply chain issues are also causing huge problems in the construction industry. Costs are spiralling and developers are reappraising the economics of certain projects. Even if the will remains, huge raw material shortages are preventing building work from starting, or continuing in many cases.In this environment, building products supplier Alumasc Group (LSE: ALU) faces a not-insignificant threat to profits in the short-to-medium term. However, I'm still considering adding this penny stock to my shares portfolio today.Why? For one, through its Timloc brand it offers a broad range of construction products for the housebuilding sector. It's therefore well-placed to exploit the housebuilding boom of the coming decade (the government aims to create 300,000 new homes a year by the mid-2020s).Secondly, I like Alumasc's focus on manufacturing sustainable building products, something that will stand it in good stead as governments and businesses aim to become greener. In the company's words, most of its products "manage the scarce resources of water and energy in the built environment, and improve quality of life for the owner/occupier using recyclable materials."
tole: Alumasc Group (LON:ALU) – AGM due in two weeks timeIt must have been rough over the last few months for not only the construction sector generally, but also for the building product suppliers like this group.Shortages across the board will not have helped, I am sure, however, the orders are still increasing.The group, which saw sales rise from £76m to £90.5m in the year to end June, is predicted to see some £97m revenues in this current year, despite the hassles.That should help the group to at least maintain its very much increased level of profitability – it almost trebled the 2020 £3.7m, coming in at £10.5m, with earnings jumping to 23.3p (8.2p) per share, while its dividend rose significantly from 2p to 9.5p per share.Analyst David Buxton at finnCap, the group's brokers, looks for £10.8m profits this year, 23.6p earnings and a 10p per share dividend.Buxton has a price objective of 315p on the shares.Considering that the shares are now trading at only around 230p, after touching 288p a few months ago, they still look very undervalued to me. The AGM is on 21 October.
dynam1te: From the Naked Trader yesterday talking about shares going down on profit taking after news; Alumasc was a different kettle of fish. That actually fell before the results - if it had risen a lot before there would have been a sell off on results day, so that was a totally different play so on this one I bought more before results. Does this make sense? Results were very decent and it looks undervalued still. So unusually for me I bought more ALU on the weakness. It really does look cheap! More on this one in the last update.
tole: the forecastAnalyst David Buxton, research director at brokers finnCap, was impressed, concluding that momentum remained strong as the group went into the new year at the start of last month: "Alumasc's cost savings programme, liquidity management, strong balance sheet and improved commercial positioning underpin a robust platform that is well positioned to benefit from the long-term growth drivers in our market."Buxton raised his various estimates for last year and this current year – going for £90m (£76m) of sales and profits of £10.5m (£3.7m), worth 23.5p in earnings per share (8.2p) for 2021 and then a modest £97m of revenue for this year, with profits of £10.8m, giving earnings of 24.1p per share. Buxton goes for a 7.5p dividend for 2021, then 8p this year. He raised his price objective from 262p to 315p.Comparing 10 similar companies in the building products sector, including Marshall, Ibstock, Epwin, Norcros, Kingspan and Polypipe, it becomes apparent that Alumasc, at just 230p, is trading well below the average ratings.It seems that around 18.2 times price earnings for last year, then 15.3 times in the current year come out as the mid-values. On Buxton's estimates that would put its shares on a sector-average rating of 423p for 2021 and 370p for this year. But taking a more cautious view would see the Alumasc share price range between 325p and 350p based on the finnCap estimates.I would guess, at this early stage, that within the next six weeks or so such profit targets will be heightened in line with the current, booming, building-products market.In my view, now is the time to either top up your holdings or buy the group's shares before the final accounts are released on Tuesday 7 September.This is your opportunity.
antanatar: @insider... i've done all you have said and cant find anything "uncanny".... perhaps you are mistaking uncanny with actually putting effort in to research and sticking to a proven plan. Next thing you'll be having a go a Warren for long term holding of solid firms. The only thing i can say is whilst i dont blindly follow what Robbie says i do take notice of his purchases and do MY OWN research on anything that meets my criteria. I have now taken a position in ALU based on it meeting MY OWN criteria but i will be happy to admit it was Robbies action that put it on to my radar. And as for my lack of posting, i dont tend to do so because BB's tend to be full of rampers. de-rampers or people participating in p!ssing up the wall contests
davr0s: He has in recent years had a track record of reporting some of his exits long after the event, that look like great timing. We can all be great traders doing that. Unless he reports buys and sells in near real-time how do you know he is being 100% transparent with people. For ALU I was just making the point that the chart was already extended when he was buying so it never was a great reward to risk entry point
sphere25: Is this one of the few companies where there is some value and a potential longer term hold? Looks a resilient performance in such a difficult climate with a 2p dividend to boot. Forecasts of 14p in earnings and a 5p dividend for the current financial year appear to present value and even carry leeway if they're too optimistic and need to be pushed back. A hell of alot of reports out today but how many of those companies can you look at and say there is real value? Most of the valuations look stretched when you look at the forward guidance or just sheer lack of guidance with the uncertainty. Even outperformers like JD. where you're more open to an expansive multiple look very expensive. Beaten down ones like MGGT and EZJ don't carry appeal beyond shorter term trades. Clearly they're a different animal if a vaccine comes out in future. This does appear to be the growing theme with the trend to more market participants with people being at home, a great deal young and inexperienced and with much shorter term horizons so perhaps nimble is better with many of the shares out there. There's just so many with these recurring themes where I'm seeing nothing more than quick ins and out. The US is starting to correct some of the recent gains with larger sell offs and more volatility creeping in so some of the froth surely needs to come off here too. Beyond ALU, a few look reasonable: SCS are naturally doing well with the shift to the house - key resistance at 180 HFD also doing well and not on a bonkers valuation. Questions over sustainability? SMDS making more positive noises particularly with a 12p dividend forecast LUCE are performing very well. Even though alot priced in now, one to look at if the market panic sells down MCB - Possibly, new strategy to hit £1 billion in turnover. Watch for big buying to signal a change of sentiment and belief in that strategy DWF - Decent volume coming in today, heavily beaten down. Interesting chart. One to keep an eye on for further volume and possible break higher. GMR - commented on this on the board a while back noting the short term momentum and guidance is to the upside, which has come to fruition. However, still a great deal of risk and the valuation isn't cheap imo on current numbers and forecasts so the execution really has to be almost perfect, but a speculative one that maybe does smash through my more conservative views beyond the shorter term. These are just high level views and an opinion. Clearly folk have to do their own research and form their own views. Should be interesting to see how far the US falls back and how that mainly tech based move flows through to sentiment here in all companies. After the incredible run, it really does appear to be stuttering at the moment.
