shauney2: From city wire, Best and Webb top up on tumbling Centaur Small cap investors Philip Best and Marc Saint John Webb at Quaero Capital have added to their holding in Centaur Media (CAU) after its share price almost halved since the start of the year. Citywire A-rated Best and + rated Webb increased their holding to 4.1% of the media group from worth £2.3 million at a share price of 38.6p, down 47% year to date. The shares are held in the micro and small cap fund Argos Funds Argonaut. At the end of July Centaur reported that cost reductions were underway to achieve £2 million in annual savings. Weakness in advertising caused a 10% slide in financial services revenues, although reported revenues grew by 8% to £39.9 million. In their monthly review, Best and Webb said the company’s removal from the FTSE 250 index in June triggered selling by ETFs and index-tracking funds which put downward pressure on the shares, which they saw as excessive.
eastbourne1982: Don't get me wrong dividends do have their place and do add up however when a share price is down 60% in a year the dividend being cut by 2 - 4% is no big deal, in many ways I often think it's a good thing, I'd rather the business built up more cash than paid out overly generous dividends, this one is now overly generous imho.
eastbourne1982: The share price is down 60% since last August, who cares if they cut the dividend, it's chicken feed in the bigger picture, in fact they may as well cut it now and kitchen sink it whilst the share price is so low. I never get the obsession with dividends when a share price has fallen so much, at these levels there is the potential to make 50 - 60% capital growth within 12 - 18 months imho. I don't hold these however I'm getting tempted.
this_is_me: Share price still going down.
battlebus2: Bit of a recovery in the share price this morning.....

gostevie63: Decided to sell about 1/3 of my holding at a 60% gain after 4 months. Just wanted to bank some profit in case Wilmot's potential bid falls through and the share price returns to its old levels.
mortimer7: I just re-read the interim management statement issued on 15th May, which was the catalyst for the recent share price decline. The immediate reaction it provokes is very downbeat and there does seem to be an overt focus on bad news and a downplay of the positives. Almost as if the decision was made to get all the bad news out of the way in one hit.(Bear in mind what Centaur actually do!) Having experience of management at many levels, if I was to be cynical the opening paragraphs are just what I would want to see if I was the incoming CEO, or any targeted member of the management team. Gets rid of the bad news, lowers expectation and sets a base point from which improvement potential is greatly increased. Imagine the new persons first announcement :- When I took over the share price was 33p, now it's 40p, an increase of over 20%. This is the extract from the opening paragraphs:- "Centaur Media plc (LSE: CAU, the "Group"), the business information, events and marketing services group, today issues an interim management statement for the period to 14 May 2013 and announces that Geoff Wilmot is stepping down as CEO. As a result of a number of factors annotated below, the Board now expects to deliver modest profit growth for the current financial year to 30 June 2013, relative to the adjusted profit before tax of £8m reported last year. This is below market expectations" And this is the extract from the final paragraph:- "Looking ahead, our investment in existing and new products has given us a strong pipeline of new digital platforms and event launches. With print revenues expected to stabilise, digital and events revenues growing well, and deferred revenues of £19m, 32% ahead of the same period last year, we believe that the outlook for the 2014 financial year remains positive." So in conclusion there are many positives, and the performance is fine. I believe management have succeeded in lowering expectations and there has been an over reaction in the share price. I hope my 40p example figure cited earlier is achievable in the summer. Of course this is all conjecture and my opinion. Good luck all.
philo124: Great update from Edison- 45% share price upside from here.
aleman: Two write-ups in Shares Mag today. One is from a sweep of low PEG companies, that pushes it on fundamentals, and the other in the charting section which ambitiously targets 73p, based just an the historic patterns in the share price.
