its the oxman: All looks positive re growth of the business but guess the share price will - as happens with most placings slip back temporarily , may be a short term blip and create an opportunity to add in the days ahead.
cwa1: AND a placing and offer at 7.54 am.....
skyship: Well, if ST doesn't return with another IC Online boost, at least the backstop here might be buybacks at 243p! ========================= The Group remains of the view that the authority to be able to undertake buy-backs of small parcels of ordinary shares of 10p each in the Company ("Ordinary Shares") is an important stabilising mechanism in times of market or share price volatility. The Group's previous policy was to consider buy-backs when the Company's share price dropped to more than 25% below its published Net Asset Value. Pursuant to a recent decision of the Board of Directors, it has been agreed that this threshold will be amended so that buy-backs can be considered whenever the Company's share price is more than 20% below the Net Asset Value as stated in the Company's most recently published balance sheet.
shauney2: Agree the dividend has been stingy over the years but the growth in the share price has made up for that.
retsius: Glass boy Well spotted! Don't know if that improved the share price directly but with a substantial stake in Nexus and possible future public offering it can only mean good news for BPM holders. Especially so when that company seems to be expanding so rapidly and profitably! It will be of interest to see what Simon T. Has to say in the IC. R.
peter27: Look at the long term chart. This is for serious investors who are happy to tie up some capital for long term growth in a niche unquoted part of the insurance market. News moves the share price and those who want a quick buck are shaken out.
skyship: The long anticipated disposal of Besso provides BPM with £18m of firepower; but adds less than 2p to the Jul'16 NAV: Not very surprised that no mention of a Special Dividend!
paleje: ST covered these in June just after the results, his conclusion pasted below, obviously pre the Besso speculation:- Needless to say, I remain positive on the investment case, having last updated the investment case at 157p (‘Primed for investment gains’, 10 Feb 2016). In fact, I have nudged up my target price from 190p to 200p a share. Analyst Barrie Cornes at broking house Panmure Gordon is positive too, having raised his target from 180p to 194p post yesterday's full-year results, implying a 20 per cent share price discount to book value. With the shares in blue sky territory, and prospects of corporate activity for its investee companies, I feel both our targets could yet prove conservative. On a bid-offer spread of 167p to 170p, valuing BP Marsh’s equity at £49.5m, or 30 per cent below book value of £70.8m, I continue to rate the shares a value buy.
thirty fifty twenty: I was expecting NAV to be >235p, 243p is a fantastic result - underlying equity valuations growing at > 20%, and after July share price will be supported by c.70p of CASH. So adjusting for CASH the investment portfolio is at a discount of almost 50%!!! Simon Thompson will defo pick up on this and I think set a price target of closer to 200p. For me an overall discount of 25% is a minimum so today that gives fair value of 182p, but would expect another 10% NAV growth over the next 12 months so 200p likely, which represents >25% growth including divi (share price backed with 40% CASH!) I wonder any chance of a CASH return when they get loan repaid in July?
thirty fifty twenty: I think the recent disposal of RQIH is a very good signal for the following reasons: 1. it is converting a volatile and illiquid asset into CASH 2. the disposal price is ahead of book value thus adds (very modestly to NAV) 3. the fact that it is BP Marsh himself that is buying the shares is good news.....Why did he buy and BPM not just sell into the market? I doubt if RQIH will continue to surge in price as this would be very embarrassing for him personally. If there was no buyer in the market for 1% of RQIH then similarly we have done well as BPM shareholders. Thus I conclude that he paid a fair price for something he believes that over time will be a good investment. 4. So why sell at all? Well as is stated in the RNS it is because it is 'non-core'. To me the important aspect of this sentence is that 'they care'. They care how the group is perceived (remember Mr Marsh and directors owns >70%) which is an indication I think that they care about the discount, believe it is unwarranted and are taking action to reduce it. it is quite significant that Mr Marsh has spent well over £1m of his own money to increase his effectively holding in RQIH from 0.6% to 1% - why do it? I can only come to the conclusion that its because it will add value to his 60%+ shareholding in BPM. 5. Overall, this indicates to me that the NAV at results will be good and there might be some surprise announcements over the remainder of the year that will give the share price a decent nudge upwards. They have still not spent any money on buying back shares. Time we tell..... All IMHO, DYOR + BoL BPM is in my top5 hldgs
