Schroeders and Statens are also large holders in FRAS and I imagine have a relationship with Ashley so I imagine some deal has been done . If Ashley now holds 18% of BWNG then one can only assume that he will make a bid for the rest. 50p anyone ??

Masurenguy 24 Jan '23 - 5619: Well there is no obvious evidence that they want to buy it and take it private. One of the reasons that they moved the company from the main market to Aim was to take advantage of the inheritance tax concessions applicable to eligible listed companies on the secondary market. Whether there is a predator in the wings is another question altogether and that has to be a possibility given the 50% fall in the shareprice since they transferred to Aim just over 2 years ago. 24 Jan '23 - 5620: Surely IF there was a "predator in the wings" the predator would be buying the shares, not Lady Alliance. I still think a bid is on the way, but from the Alliances.

My 2d-worth: Frasers want to buy N Brown and a price for the business has already been agreed with the Alliances and Schroders. The transactions we've seen today and over the past few weeks are all a part of that deal between those parties.

The offer price will have been deemed to be sufficient to get acceptance from enough of the other shareholders to get acceptance over the 90% level.

Even more speculatively: Lord Alliance sold the 57.9m shares to Frasers Group today.

Problem is the economy always lag the share price by the time you see green shoots they're already well up to fair price. I've only been watching Jacamo you can see they're running low of stock already most of the sizes have sold out on the branded goods. A couple of weeks ago they had every size. The delivery is mega quick, example order Sunday night they're on your doorstep by 3pm next day on free delivery

It could have been worse. Previous guidance suggested the Shares were on a PE of 5, that has now moved to 10. Net Tangible Assets are three times the current share price. The Group is not earning an acceptable return on equity, but given normality in the economy that should change. So I do not see much progress in the share price in the short term but over the medium term there could be very decent upside.

Why N Brown is a small-cap stock for contrarian value hunters
Ben Hobson
Tue, 31 May 2022, 8:49 am·2-min read

Contrarian value investors are always on the look-out for shares that the market has overlooked. In times of economic uncertainty - when stock prices become erratic - good quality stocks can become cheaper. The question is whether N Brown (LON:BWNG) is currently one of them.

Buying good quality stocks at cheap prices is a popular stock market strategy - but it isn't always easy to tell the difference between a genuine bargain and a value trap. Often, it's the quality of the stock that makes all the difference.

The N Brown share price is currently trading at 32.0p. And the promising news is that it has some of the traits that are often associated with two influential drivers of investment returns: high quality and a relatively cheap valuation.

To understand where they show up, here's a closer look:


Buying quality at a fair price
Good quality stocks are loved by the market because they're more likely to be solid, dependable businesses. Profitability is important, but so is the firm's financial strength. A track record of improving finances is essential.

One of the quality metrics for N Brown is that it passes 9 of the 9 financial tests in the Piotroski F-Score. The F-Score is a world-class accounting-based checklist for finding stocks with an improving financial health trend. A good F-Score suggests that the company has strong signs of quality.

While quality is important, no-one wants to overpay for a stock, so an appealing valuation is vital too. With a weaker economy, earnings forecasts are unclear right across the market. But there are some valuation measures that can help, and one of them is the Earnings Yield.

Earnings Yield compares a company's profit with its market valuation (worked out by dividing its operating profit by its enterprise value). It gives you a total value of the stock (including its cash and debt), which makes it easier to compare different stocks. As a percentage, the higher the Earnings Yield, the better value the share.

A rule of thumb for a reasonable Earnings Yield might be 5%, and the Earnings Yield for N Brown is currently 6.92%.

In summary, good quality and relatively cheap valuations are pointers to those stocks that are some of the most appealing to contrarian value investors. It's among these shares that genuine mis-pricing can be found. Once the market recognises that these quality firms are on sale, those prices often rebound.

What does this mean for potential investors?
Finding good quality stocks at cheap prices is a strategy used by some of the world's most successful investors. But be warned: these factors don't guarantee future returns and we've identified some areas of concern with N Brown that you can find out about here.

I really don't think they're going to take it private either, nor run the share price down intentionally.

The inheritance planning sounds like the best reason.

If they were trying to run the share price down, then why buy 5 million quids worth at 62-64p?

The share price was going into free fall after 20th May results, so that would have been the time to remind everyone of the litigation... then sit back and watch the share price really drop. Then hoover up shares at a much lower price.

But what they did was step-in and support the share price at a much higher level. Then issue the litigation reminder.

I reckon they're now sat there thinking, 'ah man, we stepped in about 8-10p too early for our 5 million buy, so let's just focus on the business now and let that do the talking for the sp'.

Being blunt, IMO, they're either a bit dim or have worked to protect the sp, rather than the other way around.

I'm still certainly looking to top-up, but there's many other 'dips' around !!
But certainly not a sell (unless you wanna take those 19p profits).

Adam Ant posted this post on LSE chat re Brown Group BWNG...
As I see it, from its 10p low on 3rd April 2020, the BWNG share price formed a strong ascending channel, peaking at 81.50 on 13th January 2021. Unfortunately, it lost momentum and fell out of that ascending channel on 2nd March 2021, when it closed at 68.70 and has not been able to regain the 11 month upward trend. I now see the share price in a short term descending channel, the upper limit of which is a line connecting the highs of 13th January (81.50 intraday) and the lower highs of 17th February (77.50) and 6th April (70.75).
To get out of this descending channel, the share price would have to close convincingly above 71 and progress from there, with a target of 85, which is the 0.500 Fib line between its 31st December 2019 high (163.90) and its 3rd April 2020 low.
The 0.618 Fib (67) seems to be providing a degree of support. The bearish scenario would be if it decisively lost that level and re-tested the SMA 100 (64.67). If that broke, the share price could fall back to about where it was on 11th Feb (60) before the surge. Below 60, there is support at the SMA 200 (56.2).
The share price is doing well today and I am hoping we shall soon see a close above 71 and regain upward momentum, in anticipation of results that are due soon.
