18bt: Bloomsbury’s latest deal good but not transformational Publisher Bloomsbury (BMY) has acquired Red Globe Press for a sensible price but it is lacking ‘transformational scale’, says Peel Hunt. Analyst Malcolm Morgan retained his ‘add’ recommendation and target price of 325p on the stock, which closed up 0.3%, or 1p, at 306p on Tuesday. ‘Sensibly priced and central to the group strategy, this is a welcome deal,’ he said. ‘The only thing it lacks is transformational scale.’ Morgan said the deal comes 13 months after Bloomsbury bought Zed Books and 12 months after it raised £8.4m through a placing. ‘Even post this transaction, the company is expected to end the current year with cash of £60m. In the absence of more substantial deals, it is time the company should consider a special distribution of the surplus capital,’ he said. The analyst added that halving the cash pile could fund a special dividend of 36p.
richjp: I first bought into BMY after listening to Richard Leonard on PI World on 18th December. I hope the link below works. He discusses BMY from fifteen minutes onwards until the end. hxxps:// He mentions the possibility of forecasts being upgraded and that is exactly what has happened. I added again after this week's update. I was unaware that Simon Thompson had also tipped it and it would no doubt help if he does so again.
investor0109: riverman77- believe that as a steady ship, BMY appeals to a more conservative investor- the archetypal blue-chip holder. They buy on tipsters nod and take profit earlier than contrarians among us, who might argue they'd have missed the best of it. My view that wider market has and will continue to overlook BMY until too good a prospect to ignore. Of course, by then the ship long since sailed. Great opportunity to increase holding, praise be to what may well turn out to be, the poor judgment of others!
cwa1: Helped myself to a few on the earlier dip today, had hoped to get more but was a bit too slow. Possibly more opportunities to come though I suppose... Interesting to have a glance at the TS from the end of January:- Bloomsbury is pleased to announce that revenue is expected to be ahead and profit well ahead of market expectations* for the year ending 28 February 2021. This follows continued strong trading in the Consumer division, for both Adult and Children's publishing. Standout bestsellers in the second half to date include the new titles Eat Better Forever by Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall, Outlawed, Joe Biden - American Dreamer and Humankind, as well as strong backlist sales of Harry Potter, Sarah J. Maas, Why I'm No Longer Talking to White People About Race, Such A Fun Age and Dishoom. Nielsen has estimated that the surge in reading has led to the volume of print books sold in the UK during 2020 growing by 5.2% compared with 2019. Academic and Professional also continues to make good progress in line with our strategic objectives. Our strategy of developing digital resources means we are well placed to benefit from demand from academic institutions during lockdown. This excellent performance during the global pandemic is testament to the resilience, initiative and determination of our staff, authors, illustrators, customers, distributors and suppliers, together with the strength of our publishing strategy, supported by our strong financial position. For me, that's about as bullish as BMY get and it is slightly surprising that the share price has fallen back so much since the heady share price euphoria that was created around the time of the update. Hopefully I won't regret this additional sortie!
energeticbacker: The share price had been making steady progress over recent years, rising from a low of 146p in 2016 to a high of 299p by December 2019 following which it tumbled in the wake of the pandemic, only to rise again to the current price of 300p (Up 25% on the 240p price on 27 October 2020 when Investor's Champion last recommended the shares).
investor0109: Fantastic trading update and confident more to come. Years '20-'22 might well be transformative for BMY and believe share price could reach new all-time highs this year. My view that BMY worth no less than 350-370p, though a considerable amount more should next 6 months trading be as good as past 6.
investor0109: Profit-taking or late it seems. Perhaps far more to be taken had sellers waited another 6-8 weeks. BMY update due March 19th and likely to impress. Expect share price to slip back to 260-280p prior to big move up on results, to 320-350p. Read multiple articles touting BMY among among top picks for 2021.
thorpematt: That chart looks extremly bullish. When you think about it, it's a bit odd, BMY having an share price which still languishes below the pre COVID price. A bit of a lockdown winner this one. I think our new virus strain guarantees more staying at home for millions of people for a little longer than was anticipated.
investor0109: 2toptrader- it certainly can be irritating, though quite understandable given the dramatic share price spike. I imagine it'll not be long before share price tests 250p, what with non-essential retailers due to reopen within weeks and BMY's strong position both pre-Covid and in response. The IC tip clearly made an impact today, so that won't hurt the share price either. It would seem there are among us, investors who didn't have faith in their own interpretation of the data on BMY.
investor0109: ...BMY share price is now 44% lower than it's year high of 304p. Could it really be that this well-established company with little debt could really be worth 44% less today than it was just 8 weeks ago? I don't think so!
