You will only now how bad when I tell you I live in London and it was a 7 hour return journey via a rail replacement bus from Grantham for the privilege of watching them lose!

Always had a soft spot for Tranmere - since Mr Aldridge took up residence there in the 90's.

Although you know things are bad when you have to travel to Doncaster for a game!

Hahaha! I was visiting on my way to the Eco Power stadium to watch Tranmere get beaten! At least the Card Factory footfall cheered me up. I do think there is something in the idea that affluent London based investors have little idea in the power of a value offer to predominantly working class shoppers. They've really found themselves a pretty resilient niche on the high street.

Well Card Factory in Doncaster was extremely busy - three on the tills and queues 10 deep. I know it is anecdotalism but just in case anyone is interested!

I agree. A mixture is preferable. As GG says it is so undervalued that buying back shares is immediately very accretive to earnings and in this instance will help to take out our persistent seller. Dividends are also appealing to income investors but clearly are taxed.
If they make £45 million plus post-tax, allowing for paying back some debt and capex then they should be able to afford £30 million for a combination of the 2.
Say £15 million dividend = 4.3p and a decent near 5% yield.
Also £15 million for buybacks.
If I could speak to the FD/ CEO that's what I would advocate. Speaking to any of the management is impossible and believe me I've tried....

Not averse to a mixture of dividends and buybacks. But dividends always better since investors then have the option to buy back shares themselves (ie reinvest the dividend) if they think they're undervalued.

@Omron, I'd rather they could get rid of Tranche 'B' next year. I think that a buyback would be super beneficial before they re-start divis.

Ggrantsu - fully agree that CF should be buying back shares - perhaps they can approach Teleios?

riverman...completely criminal for this company to pay out dividends when the valuation is under 6x...they should be buying back shares with both hands! i just do not understand how anyone invested here can think dividends are the way forward for the time being...they could do something extraordinarily accretive right now with the valuation as it stands. madness - one of the issues with the UK market, this obsession with dividends.

all depends on how much this fund want to trim down to...if i were to guess the calculus it would be: they bought a chunk pre covid, so they obviously liked the business when it was being managed badly and a much higher price vs. today (1.50ish)...then when covid hit they had to triple down to make money on it (hence taking 20% of the company). they've made a decent amount of money on the post covid tranches so its understandable they want to release capital...

however, conscious of the original tranche they bought - which was a very different investment to post covid. surely the fair value of this business has increased quite a bit since just before Covid given performance of new management and new growth initiatives...

i'm happy to hold a large chunk in this if in fact they want rid of it all...but definately not expecting any north facing movements in the near term as clearly this will be massively held down by the selling, and the effect the uncertainty has on everyone thinking of buying.

The market is waiting for news of the dividend being reinstated - that should drive a rerating. Nevertheless, Teleios still hold around 10% and it took them months to go from 20% to 10% - assuming they want to be fully out then this could take a while (although if the market picks up they should be able to sell more quickly).

A TR1 from Teleios that they've gone to Zero, for one.

I do wonder what the market needs to see in order to rerate. No dilution for as far back as i can see (including COVID), op margins always been good (apart from COVID, obviously), revenue for last 6 years growing (apart from COVID), eps not far off restored compared to pre COVID. ROCE already restored to pre COVID. Free cashlow always been good as far back as i can see (inducing COVID). Ok, dividends can be re-introduced. We are all sold on this. But what is the market "waiting" to see?

You can tell PI’s have moved on, no one’s even mentioned Telios reducing by a percent or so.

monte, thanks these figures are really interesting, especially to see some of the very sharp fund managers with large holdings. As you would know the holdings under 3% are not so accurate but it is the big ones who matter.
