I didn't add any today because I had already loaded up recently at c.337pps

Est. divi yeilds for next 3 years at the opening price was
5.5% 5.8% 6.1% (Zeus)

..unless there is a special divi (as has been when excess cash has appeared in the past)

Estimate YE cash balances for next 3 years (Zeus)

40.6 52.7 62.5 (£m)

So don't bet against it.

On PER, if you take the cash out you are paying less than 7x for this, on a high yeilding stock with steady growth.

I consider that the market made a signifcant mis-step on this after the last TS. I reckon it has a fair valuation of about 510p.

Commentary is a tad confusing...but concise as always.

I interpret that: truck makers have deliberatly refused sales in order to mitigate supply chain issues.

I think that as the market normalises this will be preferable for suppliers such as CGS. Demand should remain pretty solid given previous order refusals. That appears to be in the commentry too.

Zeus have a note out this morning. Here's their valuation summary:-

"...shares trade on 11.9x FY24 earnings falling to 11.5x in FY25. On EV/EBITDA, Castings trades on just 4.9x reflecting the net cash position of the business and yield a prospective 4.5%. However, in the recent past the Company has paid a special dividend when the net cash position has remained at elevated levels. Zeus estimate c. £40m at the end of FY24, post paying the special dividend announced at the end of FY23. "

Red I guess I should have bought the dip on results day. Oh well always another day another share. Good luck if you're holding.

Price is relative and you could well get in lower. In this market nobody can predict the bottom with any degree of certainty.

Thanks for the detail.

Wow Cgs has more than four small private shareholders!

Article here:-

I don't agree with the conclusion on price / value (£5.75 is my view) but the rest of the article is fair IMO.

Nice bit of volume to go with price rise. Not a well covered stock analyst wise, but certainly a stalwart historically with a good record of doing the right things.

VERY strong balance sheet and surplus on pension, many companies could learn from that.

I reckon a recovery in market would gear up well here and I think the forward PERs are better than they look given the cash position and lack of debt.

Nice and quiet here of late too – so a lack of interest of late giving the price weakness I think.
