countless: and from Motley Fool ..... AO let’s go-ish AO World today trumpeted continued revenue growth against “a continuingly tough macro trading environment in [the] UK and Europe.” It reported a 9.9% increase in total revenue to £404m for the six months ended 30 September. The overall UK major domestic appliances (MDA) market declined but the company said it takes “encouragement that we are at least maintaining market share in this core category in the UK.” Revenue growth of 5.7% in the UK to £335m came from new non-MDA categories, like audio visual and computing, so you can see the thinking behind the company’s recently announced proposed acquisition of Mobile Phones Direct. In Europe, revenue increased 35% to £69m. AO’s adjusted earnings before interest, tax, depreciation and amortisation (EBITDA) was a loss of £5.4m at the group level. The UK posted a positive £6.9m (down from £7.4m in the same period last year), while Europe narrowed its loss to £12.3m from £13.7m. The group cash outflow for the period was £14.9m, leaving it with net cash of £23.9m. Premium rating unmerited? AO appears to be well managed, but as a low-margin business I’ve always been bearish, seeing it as grossly overvalued. That the company says its newer categories are dilutive to gross margin doesn’t help persuade me that the fall in its share price has made the valuation more attractive. I can see downgrades to analysts’ forecasts for fiscal 2019 and 2020 after today’s numbers, which makes the existing 92 times forecast 2020 earnings even less attractive. As such, I can’t see the AO share price returning to its former highs any time soon. Indeed, I continue to see it as a stock to avoid.
countless: AO World (LON:AO.) Share price: 112.2p (down 10.4% today, at 09:20) No. shares: 458.8m Market cap: £514.8m Interim results AO World calls itself "a leading European online electrical retailer", but it's really a UK company, with a struggling, loss-making, sub-scale European operation too. Looking at these numbers, I think it's probably only a matter of time before they have to face reality and close down the European operations. Revenue growth in H1 is only +9.9% - that's not enough to justify the sky-high rating. It's loss-making at the adjusted EBITDA level - due to heavy losses in mainland Europe of -£12.3m on £69.4m revenues - an awful result. UK is EBITDA profitable at £6.9m. Outlook - the dreaded H2-wighting; Our peak trading period began on 9 November with the launch of our biggest ever Black Friday and I remain confident of achieving long-term sustainable growth across the Group. We expect full year results to fall within the range of Board expectations, albeit more second half weighted than previously anticipated." My opinion - I think this share is worth 20p, tops. Why it is still over 100p, I have no idea. It's just not a very good business model - low margin box-shifting, in a highly competitive market. Do customers really care about service levels, for one-off purchases? I think most people just shop around for the best price. Bottom line is, it doesn't make any money, and isn't growing very fast. So what's the point? This looks a good potential shorting opportunity, in my view. It amazes me how the valuation of this company has remained so high, given lacklustre performance, for so long. We're now in much more sceptical market conditions, so perhaps that might be about to change? From Stockopedia - Written by Paul Scott on 20 Nov
bones30: Can someone please help me with the bull case here? Looks a compelling short to me. How is the share price hovering like bricks don't?
liam1om: Broker downgrades, poor trading updates, CEO selling out his entire holding and the share price rises??? Amazing.
lew stules: Market cap is still over half a billion pounds. No real profit except on some questionable insurance products. Share price could easily half from here IMHO
j284: This share is fascinating, it appears to be bafflingly resilient. The company is extremely well run with what appears to be an excellent management team but I just can't fathom the share price.
liam1om: Tim 3 - I could name you many companies where the Chairman/CEO sold up, a few months later the share price has halved. It seems to happen over and over again. Give it a week, or a month or two and I'd bet this is nearer 100 rather than 200. I personally used this company to buy a TV over Christmas and they were great, I just think this is way over valued at the moment and its seems the CEO agrees.
alphatrend1: Bounced off trend line, I always take broker notes with a pinch of salt.. hxxp:// Most brokers looking at between £3.50 and £4, not that it matters will only have a short term effect on the share price imo. Price action is higher so happy to hold. all imo etc...

rossannan: BTW, if you are just looking to buy white goods, AO are very competitive. Their prices seem to be a loss leader - they want you in the door so that they can flog you the lifetime insurance. Outfits like AO eventually get found out - I am looking to short AO at these levels, but accept that the share price could go higher in the short term.
