Hi davidosh

The point about Alumasc having a 10 or 20 year history of going nowhere has been discussed here recently in January. What makes it different this time is its return on invested capital which tended to be in single digits 10 years ago but for the last couple of years is now over 20% (as per Uncle Stock). It's not immune from the cyclical nature of the industry but its improved ROIC metric without an excessive payout ratio means that the share price should be rewarded in the future with the benefit of this increased amount from retained earnings being ploughed back into the business.

Alumasc was very heavily debated on the Mello show last night. The panellists are professional investors not traders and came up with very constrasting views of the company which was very useful and enlightening.

One point made was that Alumasc has had a 10 and 20 year history of going nowhere in share performance terms and is a negative return when taking inflation into account. It rarely goes above £2 and once it does then it seems to be followed by a 50% plus decline. Where is the steady growth? Will it be different this time?

Is this Kevin Taylor (ALU) someone from the company or just a random tipster?

Stocko are not ‘ramping’; ALU or any other company for that matter.

You seem angry and obsessed with Stocko. As others have said, it’s just a research tool and it’s up to the individual how they use the info/interpret the Stocko ratings. There’s guru screens to follow if you wish, or you can copy and edit such. Other tools do similar, so I don’t understand what your childish rant is all about.

I am not on commission so not exactly bothered! All I know is my experience, which is that 2 years ago, I was generating 2000 html charts every weekend to view. I was wasting 10 hours. Now I just pop all the shares I am remotely interested in into a portfolio then view the charts set up as I need them. When I find what I am looking for, I then see if there are any key reasons not to buy, debt, recent company comments etc.

Other tools are available I am sure, and for the most part I dont care what the SCVR (just a daily blog of whats going on today basically) says about shares I own. But its always nice when an impartial eye picks up on a share that I have conviction on. Its also nice when they pick up on a point I hadnt considered and allows me to exit without taking a bigger loss.

As for ALU, hopefully we are all aligned on it being decent value right now!
All the best :-)

Stockopedia is a research tool. Why wouldnt you want to see all of the companies earnings data and forecast earnings in one place - with the ability to do tech analysis?

And as for the comment about when the company results are not so good? Completely wrong. The SCVR guys doing the commentary will be very quick to flag as an amber or indeed a red as soon as any they are any potential headwinds. In any case, they dont tip. They flag a share as green / amber or red...

"Green (thumbs up) - means in our opinion, a company is well-financed (so low risk of dilution/insolvency), is trading well, and has a reasonably good outlook, with the shares reasonably priced. OR it's such deep value that we see a good chance of a turnaround, and think that the share price might have overshot on the downside."

Possibly Spawny - ALU was showing as one of the most viewed pages on Stockopedia over the weekend and this morning.

I do notice that the broker eps figures are nudged up today.
24.75p for 2024
26.4p for 2025

Even on a miserly P/E of 10 we should see 250p. With a near 6% div thrown in.

Hopefully this breakout is the real deal and we can finally clear 200p

Also only 15m shares in free float. So it wont take much additional interest to get this moving

Looks like ALU is attracting some investor interest and the share price is moving out of the range it's been in for the last 18 months.

Hi Piedro - do you have a particular year in mind as an example? In terms of share buybacks the number of shares in issue is pretty much the same 36m as it was 10 years ago - it tends only to change slightly with the interaction of shares issued from share options offset by share buybacks.

I'm not aware of much recently on restatements - there was one a couple of years ago to restate comparatives on the classification of Levolux as a discontinued operation but the net profit was unchanged.

I must admit I'm not really looking at ALU's eps or the low P/E much, I'm here because the return on invested capital has moved from single digits a few years ago to 20% plus and I'm hoping that with some of that return reinvested (the recent ARP acquisition as an example) they can grow in the future.
