la forge: CHEERS WHATUPS Is the Centrica share price heading for 110p again? [] Alan Oscroft July 2019 Business accounting concept, Business man using calculator with computer laptop, budget and loan paper in office. Business accounting concept, Business man using calculator with computer laptop, budget and loan paper in office. Centrica (LSE: CNA) has been regularly popping up in my stock filters these days, making me wonder if it’s finally time to buy. Shares in the owner of British Gas have recently fallen to a 21-year low, but can they really keep on sliding? What do I mean by stock filters? I regularly run a scan of the FTSE 100, checking on various fundamental measures. I look for stuff like low P/E, high dividends, good dividend cover, low PEG, all kinds of things. And, increasingly, Centrica makes the cut. Looking for undervalued dividend stocks, the other day I narrowed the FTSE 100 down to those with a dividend yield of 5% or more, cover by earnings of at least 1.3 times, and a P/E that’s no higher than 14. And Centrica made the cut. Earnings rebound? Earnings at Centrica are expected to fall again this year, but analysts have EPS starting to climb again in 2020. That would put the stock on a forward P/E of around 11 for the current year, dropping as low as 8.5, based on next year’s forecasts. There’s a dividend cut on the cards for this year too, after the firm had maintained its 12p per year for four years in a row while earnings were falling. And as an aside, that’s something I don’t like to see — companies that stubbornly keep their dividends going until it’s almost too late. Sadly, it’s a very common thing. But I’d much rather see dividends paid more variably as, and when, the cash is there to cover them reliably. Anyway, even with forecasts suggesting the payout will be slashed to around 7.8p this year, and then nudged down to 7.5p next, that would still provide yields of 8.7% and 8.3% for the two years, respectively. Dividend cover Cover by earnings wouldn’t be great. But we’d be seeing 1.33 times by 2020, if these predictions are close to the truth, and that wouldn’t be too bad in the energy sector where dividends are generally only modestly covered. This isn’t a picture of a company bouncing with health I’m painting here. But, at the same time, it looks like it could be passing the bottom of its poor spell. I can’t help feeling there’s more pessimism in the share price than is justified. Let’s imagine a 25% upside and a share price rising to 112p. That would bring those P/E predictions to undemanding levels of 14 and 11 for the two years, respectively, and the dividend yields would drop to 7% and 6.7%. That would still represent a very desirable income level. Trading In its most recent trading update in May, Centrica told us things remain tough, but that it’s still on track for its cash flow and net debt guidance, with £250m of efficiency savings and £500m of non-core divestments expected by the end of the year. Net debt should still be around £3bn-£3.5bn, and I see that as the biggest risk right now. Interim results are due on 30 July, and debt will be the first thing I’m looking for. Would I buy Centrica shares? No, because of my cautious investing approach, and because these days I won’t buy recovery stocks until I’ve seen them recover. But for a bolder contrarian investor, I reckon Centrica could be worth a close look now.
florenceorbis: Investomania Are recoveries ahead for Vodafone Group plc, easyJet plc, Centrica PLC and Marks and Spencer Group Plc? Do these shares have turnaround potential? Vodafone Group plc (LON:VOD) (VOD.L), easyJet plc (LON:EZJ) (EZJ.L), Centrica PLC (LON:CNA) (CNA.L) and Marks and Spencer Group Plc (LON:MKS) (MKS.L) July 1, 2019 Robert Stephens, CFA FTSE 100 Centrica PLC Centrica PLC The performances of shares in Vodafone Group plc (LON:VOD) (VOD.L), easyJet plc (LON:EZJ) (EZJ.L), Centrica PLC (LON:CNA) (CNA.L) and Marks and Spencer Group Plc (LON:MKS) (MKS.L) have been disappointing over recent quarters in my view. Investors seem to be concerned about the financial prospects of Vodafone. The company is investing heavily in 5G and in acquisitions. This may have contributed to its decision to rebase its dividend, which seems to have caused investor sentiment to come under pressure. I think that the Vodafone share price offers long-term recovery potential. Its decision to enter into partnerships and become a simpler business could catalyse its financial performance, but it may be a gradual process. easyJet’s financial prospects continue to be uncertain to my mind. Even though fuel costs may moderate due to a lower oil price, overcapacity and a high level of competition at a time when consumer confidence is weak could lead to a difficult period. Still, with the stock having a P/E ratio of 7, I think it could offer a margin of safety. I also think easyJet’s balance sheet and strong position in the budget airline segment may allow it to gain market share over the medium term. Marks and Spencer may take time to deliver improving financial performance in my opinion. It is investing heavily in its omnichannel prospects, but I feel that other retailers have got a head start in this respect. Therefore, while I think the company has a strong brand and a loyal customer base, I feel that some of its rivals have business models that are better aligned with evolving customer tastes. As a result, I view Marks and Spencer as a long-term recovery stock. Centrica’s uncertain outlook could hold back its share price in the near term in my view. The company faces political and regulatory risks that are showing little sign of subsiding to my mind. Therefore, while it has a dividend yield that is now in the double digits, I feel there may be better opportunities for me elsewhere. It wouldn’t surprise me if Centrica continues to underperform the FTSE 100 in the short run, although a successful turnaround cannot be ruled out over future years as it seeks to become more efficient under a revised strategy.
hifc231: Hi DD, if Corbyn the Red had a chance to buy this, would they also base the price on assets not just share price? As assets can be easily priced (age, reserves etc), where as the a share price is mostly based on speculation of what may happen not actually cost of the company......... I thought someone on here stated a few months back that based on Asset value Centricas share should be around the 2.50 mark, therefore shouldn't any nationalization offer be close to this?..............All speculation but any offer should not just be based on share price history alone, there is Debt levels, rebranding costs, Asset values, future reserve value, redundancy package costs from restructuring, pension deficit etc etc.......... but the Commies would just ignore all that and say 50p a share.
turvart: Sorry Whatsup32, As I was writing my post you posted, I wasn’t talking about your last post being great sense, I was talking about the post before that. Personally I don’t think CNA should reduce their holdings in Spirit Energy they should actually increase their holdings lol and hope that the brilliance of Spirit Energy can help CNA share price hold up, if CNA sell holding of Spirit Energy then they will sell their gold and the Sp will drop even more IMO.
whatsup32: 1. Dividend will more then likely be cut to around 4p. (4% per annum return is reasonable assuming share price £1) If it is cut share price will likely drop , if it is not share price will still likely drop as the company would be seen not having done the right thing and in anticipation of a cut further down the road. 2. Weather is mild so don’t expect bumper sales , 3. Nuclear stake has been on the chopping block for some years with no takers and if that wasn’t enough two? Of the reactors are shut down due to cracks producing NO power 4. Labour is getting stronger in the polls 5. Cannot increase prices to compensate for extra costs 6. Cutting staff to the bone and probably reducing future investments Short term share price is likely to go down but once the dividend is cut with an immediate adjustment to share price , I think CNA will see a steady clime in its share price. Every one is looking for someone to blame for the collapse in share price . But I’m of the view BOD have done a good job . They sacrificed loss making customers (profit is sanity) Invested in digital Cut costs to the bone Bonus may not be timely but he deserves his salary.
hifc231: I'm amazed at this shares price, back in 2005 when the Dividend was 8.4p (full year) the share price was trading at 220-225. Here we are paying 12.p (full year) dividend and the share price is 116? I'm stuck with a get out price of 170 so still long way to go for me. My point is if the Dividend is reduced from 12p to say 8p (1/3 cut) then in theory the share price shouldn't even be below 200 (based on history). Crazy how share prices are calculated on speculation and not facts.
jpjohn1: Yes Nortic, CNA share price just seems to keep dropping, and even on good days we don't go up. Unless we have a good rise in the next 6 weeks or so unfortunately with xdiv coming up, most company's go down by what they pay out. I can see this just over the pound mark. Hope that's wrong, and we hit the 130p mark. It takes a brave man at the moment to buy a large holding here. Don't forget we were saying not to long back this is a two pound share and look what's happened
338: How can share buy back drive CNA share price up? It has been done in the past (a £500 million share repurchase programme) and look at the share price now. Positive impact of share buy back won't last long. == the logician21 Mar '19 - 17:36 - 16468 of 16496 absolute tosh. cash flow was very good last year. if they can achieve that they could maintain the dividend and do a £400m share buyback as well. we know cash flow will be a bit weaker this year. so they should maintain the dividend then start a £400m annual share buyback in a couple of years.
yump: This is camaradarie in the face of adversity. ie. the CNA share price. Hopefully we can all live as happily ever after whichever way Brexit goes. I just bought the book adults in the room by that greek chappie (not Phil), so looking forward to reading that over the weekend. I do wonder if, having seen the apparent intransigence of the EU, some remainers would now vote leave. I was on the fence with the vote, but it is as irritating listening to them as it is the 'leave means leave' crowd. By the way, if you want another reason to leave, try the EU privacy law that is causing all those annoying pop ups asking you on every site, if you accept cookies. That is not where the real threats to privacy are, but its a typical example of appearing to be dealing with something, while not dealing with the real problems. The real criminals are not interested in just dumping a cookie on your device - they are way more sophisticated than that. PS. I do not wish to be wished 'happy birthday' by Facebook as I did not list it in my friends and my wife definitely doesn't want to be reminded of the anniversary of her mum's death by Facebook, or for that matter, have pictures of previous happy Christmasses with her suddenly appearing as some sort of 'memory' thing on her timeline. Oh, but of course we can all switch these things off can't we, so that must be OK then.
yump: Weather getting colder. Hopefully the CNA share price will compensate for my freezing whatsits while cycling.
