this_is_me: The share price continues to drift upwards.
ansc: With annual results just a couple of months away, thought I might beat the rush and add a few more to the BILN kitty. The Market Manipulators quickly put a stop to that idea quoting an online spread of 18p (300/318p); I can already hear mutterings of 'illiquid'. Of course it is with a spread of 6%, give shareholders a chance and the situation might change.
rhomboid: Obviously steel prices are a headwind...having discussed the topic with the company many times over the years (including mast week)I can confirm that they are generally 80% fixed at point of tender submission..thus wider market price moves only impact the part of the 20% that they can’t pass on cost variation not ideal but dealable with The demise of a competitor is bad for them/their employees but healthy for the wider market as it takes capacity also encourages customers to stick to dealing with those suppliers who have a robust cash rich balance sheet...which is good for Billington
ansc: Yes, a trading update was issued on 12 December, 2019, but not this time round ... however, 2020 results did turn out to exceptional. As we know, the first half of 2020 turned out to be a difficult one for BILN with profits well down (not unexpectedly) so it's worth remembering the CEO's closing statement accompanying those results: [Mark Smith, Chief Executive Officer of Billington, commented: "Following an exceptional 2019, the first half of the year has been dominated by the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic on the construction sector and the consequential restrictions on site access, project delays and cancellations. We have seen a significant impact on our first half revenue, however with all Group operations having now returned to near full capacity and with the majority of projects having restarted, we look forward to the remainder of the year with cautious optimism. We anticipate improved Group financial performance in the second half of the year, before hopefully moving to more normal trading conditions in 2021 assuming the economy stabilises and commences its recovery from the pandemic."]
steelwatch100: Still no year end trading update, in previous years they have posted in Nov/Dec. I am taking this as good news, as in the current climate it is an absence of bad news, and that trading is in line with previous guidance. Noticed a bit in the construction press about a20% rise in structural steel prices from Jan 2021. Hope this does not adversely affect their current workload or winning future contracts. Construction Enquirer Structural steel prices to soar by nearly 20% Aaron Morby. 2 weeks ago British Steel is hitting construction with a surprise £80 a tonne hike in the price of structural steel from the start of the year. The rise will amount to a 15%-20% jump in the price of structural sections which fell to £430-£450 a tonne during the summer. British Steel first put the industry on notice in early December for a £30 a tonne New Year rise, blaming raw materials costs and a surge in global steel prices. But this notice was suddenly withdrawn seven days later. Now it has come back with a figure that is nearly treble the original planned increase, blaming unprecedented increases in raw materials costs.
steelwatch100: A year-end trading (turnover/profit) update and or announcement of contracts secured, is usually given by BILN in November or December of each year. Nothing as yet this year but hopefully within the next week or 2 guidance will be provided as to the trading conditions & prospects for 2021.
thorpematt: mmm, had to happen eventually. This is another one of those quality stocks whose price fell on lockdown but failed to recover (whilst some rather dubious business have seen prices recovery where this is not warranted. Doesn't take a lot to move the share price here (works both ways)
gleach23: After such a decent run perhaps you had forgotten the more frustrating side of BILN share price movements ansc? :) On ex-div day the share price didn't initially flinch and one could sell (the modest amount I have at least) @ 345 early on that day. I thought about a cheeky trade but then thought against it. Hopefully further patience will be rewarded once again.
ansc: Mingy Machs being devious as usual, my 3k buy not marked yet but smaller sells all being shown. I wonder at what time they'll condescend to record it, no doubt they'd argue that they were worried a £8,000 trade could destabalise the BILN share price! (lol)
glasshalfull: BILN I've been having a nibble here over recent sessions. Didn't realise it would be so illiquid. BILN's shares are down (-20%) in the last 12 months, despite considerable progress in the period and upbeat t/s last week. While some PIs were disappointed by lack of a further "ahead" statement - WH Ireland raised earnings forecasts by (+26%) during 2016 - confirmation that they would achieve these upgraded expectation was fine with me & allowed the opportunity to pick up stock from those exiting. The divergence in share price between BILN & peer SFR has also magnified over recent months. Since mid-September 2016 BILN's share price has fallen back by (-14%) while SFR's share price has risen by (+43%). WH Ireland issued a short update on Friday (10th Feb) that intimated, "Billington has this morning released a robust trading update, confirming that results for the year to 31 December 2016 are anticipated to be in line with expectations. Importantly, excellent progress has been made at the new Shafton facility and all of the businesses are reported to have continued to perform well. A number of high profile projects were successfully completed in the year, including the Greenwich Peninsula Energy Centre. We view this morning's announcement positively, particularly against the context of our earnings estimates having been raised by c.26% during the course of 2016. On the back of the update, we leave our forecasts unchanged (FY 2016E PBT £3.5m/EPS 23.8p, FY 2017E PBT £3.6m, EPS 24.1p). With the shares trading on a current year PER of 10.1x (a c.25% discount to Severfield), we continue to see considerable upside to current levels and maintain both our Buy recommendation and 340p share price target. --- At a market cap of £31m & Enterprise Value of £27.5m they look decent value on a PER of 10 while offering a 2.8% yield. Fingers crossed some of the SFR magic rubs off on the BILN share price. Kind regards, GHF
