solonic, Everyone is dodgy with figures, depends what they can get away with, they are still No.1 in their field by a long margin, and can no doubt withstand this little storm in the long run. Even if Cannacord were correct, BUR still make big profits.

BUR is like its chief ramper, jonwig, a little bit dodgy with the figures.

90% of my shares down and also my extensive watchlist, probably time to not watch the market until St. ledgers day... I will be rushing out on Friday to see what IC say about BUR however.

I'm hoping that BUR's slide south is just part of the Trump induced slump in markets generally, people/institutions taking profit from a long time upward trajectory of BUR's share price Of course the Cannacord thing induced fear that Cannacord are correct, I'm not smart enough with accounting to voice an opinion, I'd like to believe what I read on this board, ie, BUR are Correct, Cannacord wrong, but that's out of vested interest, I'm losing a hell of a lot. I'm really hoping Trumps threats to China are just part of his usual strategy in negotiations (scare the sh*t out of everyone and then back off and play mr nice guy at the last minute) that's what I expect, but there again, he is a cretin and as he would say Cretins do very bad things, very bad etc. etc. (F'ing clown)

Even assuming a roic of 51%, with the mcap approaching the nav then looks good value

IC are doing a 2 part annual guide on the AIM 100 biggest stocks, Part 1 last week (bottom 50 stocks) On Friday will be Part 2, the top 50. Not sure where BUR is now, in the top 3 I believe, it was No. 1 for a while. I imagine there will be a lot of coverage on BUR given the Cannacord cat among the pigeons article and subsequent 'crash' of the BUR share price. From the share price action, to me it looks like the market still taking Cannacords view. As the UN climate report suggests, humans are stupid so I'm not surprised.

Shares have added another paragraph:Canaccord argues that Burford's claimed 85% ROIC is misleading and it believes the 'real' return on concluded investments is 51%. It believes that going forward the company should reference the lower number in all of its reporting.The broker has cut its 2019 and 2020 earnings forecasts by 18% and has questioned whether Burford will be self-funding by the end of the year or whether it will need to raise more capital, diluting returns for shareholders.In Burford's defence, the company complies fully with IFRS accounting and it is the accepted norm to assume a fair value for the portion of investment which is ongoing while cases are pending final settlement.

It's ok. I actually get the digital version free via my AJ Bell account - it's available on their website as long as you hold at least £4k of assets on their platform.I subscribe to IC, which I prefer. If I did not have free access to Shares, i would not drop access to IC if it was a choice between the two.It's a shame their BUR piece did not tackle the flawed logic of attaching full cost to a part realisation when calculation the IR.

I’ve been with IC for years out of habit - question how useful I’ve found it in recent years Interesting re size and complexity of claims - suggesting IRRs could fall but we don’t really need historic IRRs, just a bit of regular consistency or even regular inconsistency of earnings Ability to deal with size/complexity and take distressed loans means Bur well placed to make hay when (not if) the US high yield bond market blows up

Thanks for that, lomax. I've been mulling over whether to subscribe to Shares Mag - £125 pa looks reasonable. What's your take on it? (I've been with IC for years.)

Shares magazine today:Why criticism of Burford Capital is unfairIt has been a trying time recently for Burford Capital (BUR:AIM) after analysts at broking firm Canaccord Genuity cut their earnings forecasts and their target for the stock.The broker has challenged Burford's claimed 85% return on invested capital (ROIC) and argues that future returns may be lower than the market expects. It also suggests that the firm may need to raise more capital.Therefore, it argues, the current valuation doesn't reflect the risks involved in owning the stock and it has cut its target price from £15.43to £11.96.On the day the broker published its note(30 April) the shares lost 118p or nearly 7% of their value to £16.35, and since publication the shares are down over 200p or 11.5% to £15.50.NO QUESTION OVER THE GROWTHLitigation finance is a highly attractive business which continues to grow quickly and Burford has successfully built itself a market-leading position.In its first year of business almost a decade ago, it received 131 enquiries for funding. Last year it received 1,470 enquiries for funding, so there is no lack of demand.However income can be very 'lumpy' as investments take between 18 months and two years on average to come to fruition.Over half of the enquiries that entered Burford's underwriting pipeline last year were related to cases where the estimated damage claim was over $100m. Typically the bigger and more complex a case, the longer it takes to settle.By its own admission, Burford is now more like an investment bank for the law business than a litigation funder. Last year it committed $1.3bn of funding, more than three times the amount it invested in 2016, as well as launching a $1bn 'strategic capital relationship' with one of the world's biggest sovereign wealth funds. SHARES SAYS: Take advantage of the pullback to buy more shares.

That’s the total return on ivestment - presumably Bur paid a premium for it so returns to Bur won’t be as good
