photon: My perspective is that there is nothing there to derail the continuing recovery of the share price from these extremely low levels.
psheeran1: Aleman yes fair points but I think in current climate some caution would be seen as prudent and hopefully encourage investment and capital growth I.e share price increase for us all! I for one do not want a dividend right now, I’d rather see share price treble!
aleman: Already hit 1m shares traded and the share price is up. In recent months, it has fallen on higher volumes (general market shake-outs) and risen when it's been quiet, so today's start looks like a change of trend?
wskill: Dont think CPI will have a huge breakout it will take time like SRP has managed, there is a huge disparity between both shares with SRP on a £2.1 billion market cap and CPI on £400m market cap ok there is a difference in revenue of £900m but take off the test and trace element and its around £400m difference in revenue similar margins on UK Gov work. Either SRP is overvalued or CPI is a bargain I am going for bargain so loaded up on CPI now my largest holding.
kaos3: Wiseman - few further non conclusive thoughts: as we all learned - the longer the share price stays at this level - the lower the final bid - regardless of the perceived/real value (your AA. expectations and reality confirmed my bias - towards present reality) timing - there is a window of opportunity that is slowly closing - getting the low cost financing for the deal (ebitda margin vs cost of financing at the same duration including margin of safety) I learned at AA., AMER and few others - there never is a competitive bidding any more what I am missing here to make me sure of a TO is "paper games" eg. no large holding disclosures - not in shares - but in proxy paper - at CPI size that would be needed there are still few months to go before the window of opportunity for a TO is closed - and potential institution will use it to its full advantage - meaning they will wait to the end for max effect - we will stagnate at this low share price range what I do not know (cant evaluate) how easy is CPI replaced by its customers once the contract is over. It could be quite binary. as number of important customers is not that large in the end. all imho
aleman: News from the company is constantly that things are improving so the shares probably ought to be above the 200-day average. We should get more confirmation that things are on track at the AGM next week. No doubt there will be answers to questions about the return of growth and possible dividend next year as net debt becomes negligible with the final divestments. Analysts might revise forecasts on the back of replies. The share price tends to anchor price targets so the rising price might see some brokers tweak theirs higher. The FT indicates lowest of 6 is currently 21p and highest 70p, with a median of 57.5p. Given the webinar explicitly discussed the possiblity of a dividend return next year, I'd like to see more analysts stick their necks out and forecast one. If earnings next year are going to be around 5p+ and negligible debt is anticipated, one would imagine they could reasonably fund a dividend of up to 2.5p. In practice directors prefer to restart with a progressive dividend policy that usually means starting low but with strong rises projected. Maybe a 0.5p final for 2023 and then a 0.5p interim for 2024?
hamhamham1: Share price only got to double from here and we back to the high points of the last 6 months. Nice target, for starters, I am after the Jan 2020 highs personally ;) (Back then the share price was recovering nicely until covid struck)
hamhamham1: Aleman, when do you estimate the share price meets the 200 day ma? If we gain say 1p a week in share price then we will cross the 50 day in a couple of weeks. And we are along the 20 day already currently. Would be nice to get above all 3 eventually, say June?
bookbroker: Yes, but while the valuation has dropped significantly it is principally as a result of the company having to rationalize, bring down debt, sort out loss-making contracts and shore up the pension deficit. This has had to be done whilst trying to generate underlying profits in a difficult landscape. I get what you are saying, but against the backdrop of Covid it has made the job much harder. The debt alone could have crushed the company, but complacency had set in and paying out dividends over and above the level of earnings was ridiculous. Lewis has had a real mess to deal with, it is shame they did not kitchen sink everything three years ago, and raised more capital while the valuation was higher via a debt for equity swap, but that is hindsight. It looks with hope that some more asset sales and a more stable company CPI will be rewarded by a higher share price down the line. Lewis had a difficult situation to deal with, it is up to the market to recognize the efforts.
wskill: Dont think we will need to search far for a suitor with recent price action they are here already with revenue of 10 times market cap CPI is a steal easy pickings for PE a gift, all they need to do is a little share price manipulation .Then up they will pop with a low ball offer after a kind few words with management to get them onboard with a suitable remuneration.
