Looking perky of late. Maybe a new high for next week's results?

The website shows a tick up of one to 76 offices - up near enough 3/4 since Feb 2017.

I'm no permabear, though some accuse me of that because I've been bearish for a long time now - pushing 4 years. But I was a bull from Nov 2008 until the end of 2015. I'll be bullish again in time but I don't see that being anytime soon.

Thanks Aleman - A great summary, as ever. I'm inclined to agree. A black swan event could well be what upsets markets. I'm certainly not a 'permabear', but a recession of some kind is well overdue. No doubt its when politicians start saying that we have tamed the "boom-bust" cycle that we should be most on guard. Just shows you how difficult being patient and prudent is!

I lean to the sceptical side. It's an unusual downturn in that it is so extended which makes the outlook a bit less obvious. There is an argument that a weak upswing will be followed by a weak downswing and it was not much of a boom, was it, so why expect much of a bust? However, in the fiat money era, economic cycles tend to follow credit cycles and much of the other commentary is distraction. Defaults are still generally rising and banks are still generally increasing rates and reducing unsecured credit supply as a result (most obvious in credit cards)- but not dramatically so. Mortgage rates are still flat to falling and availability flat to improving. This should help but the market uptake is flat to weak. This highlights the pyschological element. Brexit and Trump have tended to make people cautious but I think they get weary eventually and start to ignore and spend as normal. People only defer for a year or two due to uncertainty then decide to get on with their lives. On the other hand job losses are coming through a bit quicker now - a more important cycle driver. On the corporate side, cost of credit for prime is flattish. For subprime/junk, spreads are rising. Earnings forecasts continue to deteriorate and dividend growth is slowing. (Dividends have started falling in Australia.) Refinancing is getting more expensive for a minority of companies so they will have to cut back on spending. Zombie companies, which will be growing in number in the sluggish economy, will struggle to get refinancing. (We are seeing more small oil/fracking companies going bust in the US, for example.) I don't see any positives to offset the struggles of subprime corporates at the moment when the consumer is still tending to keep purses closed and surveys show no optimism about personal financial situations. Yield curves don't look enticing enough to encourage banks to lend more and their bad debts seem to be slowly increasing so they will be concentrating on keeping balance sheets healthy. Shadow banking/alternative lenders, which have taken over the lending growth reins for a few years, are starting to see problems with deteriorating quality and regulators. Overall, I'm going to stick with the credit cycle and say further slow deterioration. This raises the danger that something will crack suddenly under the weight of debt and/or derivatives - a black swan if you like. My thoughts are that we should proceed with caution as a further downswing is more likely than recovery.

Be interested in your views Aleman, but there appears to be a lot of comment around that a global recession has been avoided by the recent actions of central banks etc. Do you agree or is this just complacency at work? I hit 25% cash in my portfolio and now I'm targeting 30% but this seems a fairly contrarian view. I think complacency is taking hold myself and something is going to hit from right field, maybe a black swan type event. What it is who knows, but I think we are well overdue a fairly major correction. Whenever it starts, it will be from China or the US.

Business insolvencies up slightly again. Personal insolvencies up strongly. Q3/2019 corporate insolvencies in England and Wales up 1.6% on a year ago.

Yes, scope for further upgrades as well given the expected tailwind from recessionary conditions aided by acquisitions. Bodes well. I can see £1.25 within the next 6 months, if all goes to plan.

Canaccord price target 105p. Forecast for next year moves up to £10.5m and 6.5p EPS but dividend still at 3.0p. That's pretty much a doubling of EPS in 4 years.

New highs are usually a good sign, makes one wonder what that sharp drop into the low 70's was really all about? Thank you Aleman, I much appreciate your informed contributions.

A good run of buying this morning. On looking around, I see there's a tip update in the IC where they agree the acquisition is earnings enhancing. It indicates they remain buyers at 87.7p.

They've still got £1m or so left from the fundraising plus whatever cash generated in half a year of trading so maybe one more small acquisition for £2-3m. They look to be earnings enhancing. EPS forecasts for next year should move up to 6.5p+ and we should see a restrained increase in the dividend forecasts, as I assume they will push cash into acquisitions if they are going to be earnings enhancing. Dividends 2.85p and 3.1p for this year and next then?

Another acquisition. Https://uk.advfn.com/stock-market/london/begbies-traynor-BEG/share-news/Begbies-Traynor-Group-PLC-Acquisition/80992067 I'm now guessing adjusted PTP of maybe £9.6m this year and £11.0m next year.

Lots of weak corporate news from US/international companies today - ABB, Heineken, Snap, Texas Instruments, Skechers, Caterpillar. Q3 earnings season is off to a weak start. Things look to be deteriorating.

There are not many companies that are benefiting from all the doom and gloom at the moment, but Begbies are one of them! Everyone else's downgrade is a Begbies upgrade, so should continue to do well in the next few months.

This acquisition should take adjusted PTP to maybe £9.2m, with a half-year contribution, and probably £10m or more next year. More acquisitions are likely, though. https://uk.advfn.com/stock-market/london/begbies-traynor-BEG/share-news/Begbies-Traynor-Group-PLC-Acquisition/80954039

Banks continue to reduce unsecured credit availability to households - down 11 consecutive quarters and expected to be down a 12th. Corporate credit availability is down two consecutive quarters and expected to be down a third. Secured lending is a little erratic but generally flat. Unsecured credit defaults continue their rising trend since the end of 2015 and expected to rise again next quarter. Https://www.bankofengland.co.uk/credit-conditions-survey/2019/2019-q3 I can only see the economy getting worse - and BEG getting busier - if banks continue to reduce unsecured and corporate lending as defaults rise and housing stays stuck in the doldrums.
