I've tried to get myself excited enough to get in this but I just can't do it. Digital is too small so this is still subject to the cyles of good and bad book releases and the valuation will match that. Might be interesting come 2020 when digital (Ex e-books) is a bit bigger GL all. Valuation is very attractive, just can't see the story for now

Simon Thompson in IC has written up again: Analyst Malcolm Morgan at brokerage Peel Hunt upgraded his pre-tax profit estimate by 7 per cent to £13m to produce adjusted EPS of 14p, up from 12.6p in 2017. Closing net funds of £25m were £4m higher than Peel Hunt’s forecast, a sum worth 33p a share, and supportive of a further rise in the dividend per share to 7p. On this basis, Bloomsbury’s shares are rated on less than 11 times earnings net of cash on the balance sheet, in line with book value of 185p a share, and offer a 3.8 per cent prospective dividend yield.

The issue is that these results are unsustainable so when you look to next year could easily be looking at y/y growth declines... This years good growth is next years potential bad and all that

Great update - strange that it was released after the market close last night rather than 07.00 today. Trading Update Bloomsbury Publishing Plc is pleased to report that for the year ended 28 February 2018, while revenues are slightly ahead of expectations, profits will be well ahead of the Board's expectations. This follows excellent sales, particularly in January and February, with lower than anticipated returns, driven by certain titles including Tom Kerridge's Lose Weight For Good, which has been number one in the Overall Nielsen BookScan UK chart for four weeks since its publication on December 28th 2018. In one week the title sold over 70,000 copies, more than any book has ever sold in the UK in a week in January, according to the Nielsen BookScan records. In addition, the Group's net cash balance is now expected to be around £25m, significantly ahead of expectations. The Group will report its final results for the year ended 28 February 2018 on 22 May 2018.

Probably should do. Doesn't sound like this profit bump will be sustainable so maybe up 6-8% tomorrow

Wonder how much above expectations the profit is? Stockopedia has it at £9.6M currently so maybe circa £12M? Net cash of £25M - £20M increase in 2 years!! Wonder if they have a plan on using that extra cash. Special Divvy/share buyback maybe?

Why put out a bullish trading statement after the market close?? And this Tom Kerridge book was apparently published on the 28th Dec 2018 according to the statement!!!!!!! Someone pressed the wrong button???

I read some interesting analysis that mentioned the situation on a report by a group called 13d unfortunately its a subscription only service so I cant link to it but the gist was that in the world of egatgets overload people are now assigning a much greater value to quality hard back books and the physical product, kind of like in the 1970s when digital watches came out it almost killed the swiss watch industry but the ones that survived went on to be worth many multiples of what they had been worth. The trend with these extra expensive harry potter books they are now launching will only get stronger. Having great IP will all of a sudden put bmy in a very powerful position.

Interestingly now hardcover book sales are increasing globally as the quality end of the spectrum is being supported and ebook sales are the ones under pressure, as a content provider of higher quality merchandise bmy is actually going to be in a super sweet spot rather than priced for doom like it is at the moment, it has the potential for excellent returns from here .....

Tempted to buy in here on a 3 year viewpoint. Anyone with any big opinions on whether to or not? They should be slowly transforming this into a subscription software company.... any idea how much of the biz is now this? 10%?

Sold today as it stalled and didn't breakout for a few days and worry it will retrace. Will be back in below 170p if it does.

If it breaks 185 then 200p is the next resistance

Alias Grace is a blockbuster on Netflix, with top ratings and record viewings. It's becoming a trend, book sales will do quite well IMO from this, everyone's talking about it. Paul Hollywood's cooking show also starts next week, promoting his book "A Baker's Life". It's bound to be a very good H2, topped up yesterday and expecting a breakout through 185 soon.
