serratia: There's a lot to like about this company. First they've got their revenue generation model working well. They said they'd examined different routes and picked the optimum route. This can be seen in a comparison of the cost to capture customers. I've looked at two other companies. One changed their model as it was costing £70/new customer. Another spends £36 to get a customer but only achieve £28/customer revenue. BOTB spend sub £2 to get £30 revenue. In addition enough information is available to predict forward the operating profit. My spread sheets have been within 5% of actual on the last three forecasts and I've back tested it over 5 years figures. We are only 61 days into this half year so they can up the rate or slow it down but as it stands using the ratio to cash generation they been given in the past predicts a share price at the end of this half of £24. It looks to me that they can work it to a particular target and that's where they are today.
investographer: This company is definitely going places. Without a sale, if 70p eps is hit next year, a PE of 30 gives us a share price of GBP21 WITH a decent dividend.The brand is growing exponentially thanks to the social media & marketing that Hindmarch is perfecting.This could go to Private Equity for double the current price...
investographer: Paul Scott on Stockopedia Best Of The Best (LON:BOTB)Share price: 1400p (up 12% today, at 09:06)No. shares: 9.38mMarket cap: £131.3m(I'm currently long)Review of Options under Formal Sale ProcessBest of the Best plc runs competitions online to win cars and other prizes.The company has received;...very preliminary expressions of interest which could potentially lead to an offer or offers being made for the Company.How interesting! There's an obvious rationale for a larger gaming group to buy BOTB, and then feed its existing customer database into the company, hence scaling it up rapidly. BOTB has about 2 decades of experience in this niche, and considerable brand credibility from years of operating from UK airports - people still remember this, even though the company gradually went online-only over the past few years.The Board of BOTB has confidence in the long term prospects for the Company but believes that it is in the best interest of all stakeholders to explore possible strategic options for the business (including a potential sale) by commencing a "formal sale process"My opinion - I think we're in a nice position here. There's possible further upside if one or more bidders put in an offer to buy the company. Management has a controlling stake, so they won't sell it on the cheap. Their track record is such that I think we can trust them to look after small shareholders, as they have in the past.If no acceptable bids are forthcoming, then we have very strong profit growth to look forward to, and the share price should continue rising long-term.A cynic might say that the recent big hike in FY 04/2021 forecast earnings might have been at least partially motivated by maximising the sale value of the company? That said, the company has overshot forecasts 5 times in total in the last year, so clearly the previous forecasts were far too pessimistic, and didn't reflect the traction the company is gaining with its digital marketing. Plus other growth initiatives.Forecast EPS is 70p for this year, so at 1400p we're only on a PER of 20 - arguably still cheap for a company that's just reported doubling its profit, and has extremely high operational gearing with more growth underway.It's tempting to bank some profit, but I think it's worth 2000p+, hence logically I feel it makes sense for me to sit tight. Obviously that's just one person's opinion, other investors may be happy to bank profits. It's your call!
investographer: Paul Scott has been spot on about BOTB for quite some timeFinncap FY 04/2020 - EPS is up to 33.2p now, up nearly 91% on last year!Seriously, how many shares increase their EPS by that amount?With the current share price, PE is about 22
investographer: Paul Scott from Stockopedia writesOnce again, BOTB has out-performed against forecast. This is becoming a pleasing habit!The Company's financial performance throughout the Period, and particularly the second half, continued to be strong.As a result, the Board now expects to report full year revenue and profit ahead of current market expectations.Note this comes on top of repeated increases in forecasts previously. Another point to consider, is that these big increases in profitability have been achieved despite the headwind of adverse changes in taxation (remote gaming duty, and VAT).Forecast - house broker FinnCap is excellent in getting its research out to investors, via both Research Tree, and its own research portal. A brief update today shows a big increase in forecast for FY 04/2020 - EPS is up to 33.2p now, up nearly 91% on last year!Forecast PBT has gone up 27% on the previous forecast, to £3.8m.My opinion - this share should fly today, it's way too cheap, in my opinion. It's rated at only 13.1 times newly raised FY 04/2020 forecast. The share price should be double the current level, in my view, since a PER of 26 would be perfectly reasonable for a share that's growing earnings so strongly.I just emailed the CEO to congratulate him with a simple message, "You guys are on fire!"This company should be benefiting from more people staying at home, and not being able to spend money on socialising, etc. We all know what most men do when stuck at home - watch football, and try to win a supercar online! ;-)
jeff h: FinnCap latest:- BOTB’s increased investment in marketing has continued to deliver better-than expected results, with the strong start to the second half continuing. We consequently make further forecast upgrades, despite having already raised guidance twice in the past five months. We raise FY 2020E and FY 2021E PBT forecasts by 15% and 8% respectively to £3.0m and £3.2m, reflecting the improvements in customer engagement and new customer acquisition that BOTB has been able to achieve through its focused investment on marketing. As BOTB has transitioned to being a 100% pure-play online operator, we see scope for additional share price improvement and highlight the 26% upside offered by our 490p unchanged target price. Effective content and marketing driving customer engagement and acquisition. The strong second half of the year, with particularly compelling winners’ videos and other content alongside a broad range of marketing initiatives, has driven customer engagement and acquisition, which has given the Board confidence in increasing investment across all channels and platforms. This strategy appears to be working and is evidently delivering further momentum and growth. .....A company reporting good news a very rare beast in these tough times. Current year (to 30/4/20) profits forecast now £3.0m from £2.6m in Jan, and £1.5m at the start of the year. EPS 26.0p now forecast up from Jan's 22.7p
serratia: I run a financial model relating to social media use. It gives me all the figures down to operating cash flow. I then apply a multiple to OCF to get a share price target. I could adjust the model on a daily basis but just update it now and again. Today it's signalling a target price of 448p. I have a pre tax figure of £2.77m but that will change daily in relation to social media action.
serratia: I hold these shares. I've been developing a forecast model for on line companies giving me a prediction of cash flow. I then use a multiple of cash flow to decide on a fair price for the share looking forward. I can adjust/reset on a daily basis if I wanted but tend to update weekly. I go back in this case over 6 years and look at what rating the market gives to the share. I get a max/min share price multiple to OCF. To date the market has ascribed a min of 8 to 9* OCF. My model is still developing but going on past behaviour and predicting forward I was looking at a min price of 240p for the year 2020 so bought in at 265 - 270p. Not a large holding as the spread has nearly always been large and few shares are available to buy. On the max side the price has been more volatile. As a general rule I use 10* OCF for a mature company, 12* for a growing company and 15* for a more rapidly growing company. BOTB last year had a max of 15.5* OCF and if I apply that to my model it's 415p. At 395p is near the top of my range. I don't intend to sell and await the next results to see how close my model is to reality. The highest it's been is 24* OCF I think in anticipation of further improvements as they went totally on line. The following set of results brought the peak back to 15*. So what could cause it to go above my peak figure ? First up in the past they were not fully on line so maybe they should now be given a higher rating. What I need to do is look at the ratings for gambling companies that are ONLY on line. If anyone has any suggestions I'll run the market ratings over a couple of others to see if a range of 8 - 15 is the norm or possibly higher.
lukmanpatel: Another troll by the username lsehotdealz haha, share price is stagnant and there’s talks of fundraise at 10p on that board lol desperation has lead to going round posting on different board to prevent share price from dropping, usually ud stay quiet and average down and accumulate if you see huge potential lmaoo he’s spamming all the boards
jeff h: finnCap view:- BOTB has announced an encouraging pre-close H1FY19 trading statement, highlighting “revenues and profit before tax generated tracking ahead of market expectations for the current financial year”. We therefore increase our FY19 PBT forecast by c14% to £1.6m from £1.4m. BOTB’s performance therefore stands out amidst the general malaise affecting companies exposed principally to UK consumer spending. Over the past month BOTB’s share price has fallen c15%, caught up in the aggressive market-wide sell-off, and therefore represents a buying opportunity, in our view.
