Doing my usual end of year portfolio review so been through the BMY figures again.

Market forecasts, which they also quoted in their interims, look like being miles behind the news and set up to be beaten.

They've put out a trading statement in late Jan in the last two years so would expect one in a month or so, and would be disappointed if it wasnt an 'ahead of' statement.

Will be interesting to see what they say about cash levels and/or either M&A or special dividends. Cash is just over 10% of market cap and I can't see that they need more than that.

Share price heading for a record high above 430 I should think

Having only recently bought in to Bloomsbury , so not knowing the Company very well , I had wondered why the share price dropped yesterday , then realised that yesterday was ex-dividend day , when shares of all companies usually drop . Nice to see that , even if one holds only one Bloomsbury share , there are generous discounts for shareholders for many of their products .

BDR looks like by far the highest quality aspect of BMY so should probably be the primary focus for future investment.

Results out:-

Commenting on the results, Nigel Newton, Chief Executive, said :

"Bloomsbury achieved its highest ever results with sales up 24% to £230.1 million and profits up 40% to £26.7 million. Sales were up 41% and profits up 70% from two years ago. Both the Consumer and Non-Consumer divisions gave outstanding and resilient performances, highlighting Bloomsbury's unique strength in combining general and academic publishing.

The question on all of our minds was: would the pandemic surge in reading continue? We now know the answer: reading has become a reacquired habit and continues to thrive. The pandemic made us all re-evaluate how we spend our time and this has resulted in an increase in sales of books that enable us to explore our hobbies and personal interests such as cooking, fitness, history and reading novels for enlightenment and escape. Our Academic sales have benefitted from the structural shift to online learning. Our success continues to this date with good sales for Bloomsbury's first quarter. The surge in reading, which seemed to be one of the only rays of light in the darkest days of the pandemic is perhaps now being revealed as permanent, with the simple act of reading shedding light and giving joy to millions of people.

The Consumer division revenue grew by 25%, continuing the momentum of last year, and achieved a 25% increase in profit before tax and highlighted items1 to £17.8 million. The Non-Consumer division saw 23% revenue growth and a 68% increase in profit before tax and highlighted items1 to £9.1 million. Consumer revenue was 53% higher and Non-Consumer revenue 24% higher than two years ago. Bloomsbury Digital Resources ("BDR") outperformed the target set six years ago of £15 million of sales and £5 million of profit, with sales of £18.6 million, up 50% on last year, and profit of £6.8 million, up £3.9 million on last year. Following this success, we have set ambitious new growth targets for BDR.

Supporting our strong organic growth, we made three acquisitions during the year of ABC-CLIO LLC, the Red Globe Press list and Head of Zeus Limited.

In recognition of our strong performance and in line with our progressive dividend policy, the Board proposes a 24% increase in our final dividend to 9.40 pence per share.

Trading for 2022/23 has started in line with the Board's expectations. Bloomsbury plans to invest robustly in continued organic growth and further acquisitions based on our strong financial position and proven strategy."

Stick this on a free thread too. Comment on MTEC, SCSW and their possible next moves.

BMY will be tipped at the weekend but there are sellers in size about here too so any rally might not last long. Clearly if it is a stellar write up, volume might clear sellers but BMY carries a large spread, can't usually buy or sell in size, gaps out quickly.

Not your usual trading share.

Another big faller!

They keep on coming. Valuation reset galore out there!

Sometimes an SCSW tip can cause a short term pop higher, but I had a look at this on the tip and there were massive sellers in the market but folk absolutely piled in around that 122p mark.

Someone has capitulated at 90p in selling 410k and a few other blocks being lobbed at 94p. Hard one to trade this though, it could have another big leg down in a flash. Traders will have to be nimble if indeed they choose to have a go. If I saw a few monster blocks being mopped up, I would be more tempted but the bottom on alot of these fallers is clearly hard to call.

Out of the SCSW article, ADF was the one to look at imo - a fair few of us beat them to it. I suspect they will do a big write up on it tomorrow. They have already made readers aware that BMY will be tipped tomorrow and that a big write up on ADF is on its way.

Judging by the way they have rushed to bring forward tomorrows release, it might include ADF i.e. wanting their readers to be able to get in before a big price rise. However, this is speculation on my part as it could be the month after. I am already long, but tempted to nibble a few more before the weekend. If a write up does come, and it does deliver, it could really get that share going.

Again, speculation on my part. SCSW readers already know about this and will have positioned accordingly. They have had weeks to do so.

2.3p earnings in 2022, 6.1p earnings in 2023, 8.7p in 2024

Due a quick oversold bounce but a seller in size at 95p atm.

Is it providing abit more value here?


Being selective in this market with one eye on Putin.

All imo

I bought into BMY some years ago but then it drifted so sold. I bight in again the other day on the strength of their Nobel prize winning author but sold on the results day for a small profit less than envisaged as i couldn't get a live quote at the displayed price and when i did it was some 12p lower. Books are amongst my weakness purchases having decided long ago to create a non-fiction library for myself but a couple of years ago I decided to stop buying as the cost of removal (when moving house) is reminder of the downside. These results are not in my view as good as they are made to sound. Forward-purchasing of stock by bookshops is only guaranteed if there are no returns. Also, the rate of stock turn for most books is slow, only best-sellers fly off the shelves. The share price is up with events, possibly overtaken, and likely to remain so which suggests to me little or no share price growth for the foreseeable future. Enjoy!

...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!
