RCT, That's the problem, could well be, but just recently had a similar thing happen with CRL, their price went up before results, but results disappointed a bit and price fell back. I was thinking then someone new something we didn't, but obviously not.

I think something must have leaked, cannot see this rise purely on optimism.

RCT, they were pretty optimistic of making savings, so possibly people believe that will be the case. Anyone know what their forecasts are?

The cash payment to a pension deficit is no different from the cash payment (interest) that has to be made to service debt. What is important is the size of the deficit relative to the company's balance sheet and the required payments.

The worst aspect of any pensions deficit is the cash contribution to fill the hole. This is cash that would otherwise be used to invest in the business or pay out as dividends. The share price drift over the last year will start to undermine confidence in the ability to sustain the dividend. The antidote would be a storming set of 2019 results, but we already know that they will be soft from the profits warning. A difficult time, but is it temporary or structural? TD

Such as living a long life.

The pension deficit is £15m. At a worst case scenario, this has to be considered a liability (similar to a debt) that has to be paid at some point. So the balance sheet is carrying £15m of additional debt if you view it like this. Since they have to make payments against the pension deficit that is like paying the interest on the debt. However to an extent the pension deficit is an accounting figure, not a real liability as it tends to go towards an extreme figure to cover all potential liabilities that are unlikely to occur. In general pensioners will die at their average life expectancy whereas the deficit covers a more extreme outcome.

I’ve been watching this share, and news, with interest. No holding, but tempted at this price. But the pension issue puzzles me. Can anyone set out clearly what the issue is here? I’m struggling to work out whether it is an issue to be concerned about...

A cursory glance at the graph suggests a trend which ends with a profits warning. Others in the construction supply sector appear to be quite buoyant and this may end up begging a question or two.

shiedbug, agreed on order books, it is fine when sales are going up - as well as the order book. I was indirectly commenting that sentiment appears to be in drift, probably etched in years of underwhelming performance and pensions overhang. The price will be underwritten by the underlying value of the businesses to a third party but I am not sure where that is. If they do not sharpen up their act we will find out.

Order books are not hard numbers, they also say they expect the second half of the year to be stronger than the first half - pretty sure we heard that before. (From interim results 1 Feb 2018 "Group order books at 31 January 2018 remain healthy at £25.0 million (31 January 2017: £27.6 million)." They also said "the anticipated greater second half weighting to the group’s financial performance in the current year as a result of large project phasing." That resulted in to Trading Statements. Cashflow has been week for the past two years, certainly in relation to reported earnings. You wonder how long they can continue to pay the dividend. The pension deficit hasn't gone away. On the plus side the price is low. Question is - is it cheap?

There is not much turnover in shares, but the trades that are happening are taking some shine off the price. That is the market. All it is, is a collective view. At what share price does ALU become a target?

On the 31st January, this is what they said in the results: Order book at 31 December 2018 of GBP27.5 million, up 17% year on year
