Chamberlin has suffered from years of poor management who ran it like a club for their mates and the current B.O.D has inherited that. The tide has turned and the years of stagnation have passed. The hard decisions like closing Leicester and setting up a state of the art machining facility cost money and significant investments such as hydride cleaning facility and melting plant investments have required major expenditure recently. Manufacturing industry in the UK has a rich heritage of famous names that are now housing estates or retail parks as a result of weak management with no vision or long term plan who took the rewards and gave little in return. I agree that its been a poor stock to hold and I speak from experience. It used to provide a reasonable dividend but thats a distant memory now. I know the business and the industry well and I know CMH is now being driven forward at a rapid rate by people who have a CV thats as thick as a phone book instead of the old school tie brigade that paid a dividend because they had a shed load of shares and so did their mates.

The current management is light years in front of the previous incumbents, whose strategy ran the business into the ground. They have sorted out the production side, but the balance sheet does not make pretty reading. This does place a drag on the share price, and the ability to return to the dividend list in the near term. The potential is there for a turn round. Look at the list of disclosable shareholdings.

Chamberlin makes 100,000 turbo housings a week for major suppliers to VAG and other euro car companies. Demand is increasing 30% next year and advance contracts are at similar levels for 5 years. The long term demand for turbos continues for petrol and diesel with hybrid technology. Water cooled turbos running closer tollerances are the future and guess what , CMH are making them now and not many other suppliers can. Zoolook is right that the business is worth more than £7m and at the current valuation its ripe for a predator to takeover or join forces. :)

There growth storyline 15 years ago was all about turbos for small cars and how they had it made as by 2015 every small car was gonna need one.Well here we are approaching the dawn of 2018 and we are looking at the long term decline of diesel and petrol cars now and what did they achieve with that storyline? Nothing sweet FA. It was all a sprat to catch a mackerel and raise a load of cash by placing a shed load of equity to stay solvent.Womder what their next storyline will be?

Bought another slug today. However you look at it this business is worth more than £7m. I reckon that the share price decline is feeding further decline with weak holders getting spooked. Could be wrong.

Sentiment determines the price of shares and thats whats happening here. No information or updates from the board and the price has gone from one extreme to the other. Some real nonsense on here. A midget company with 35m turnover on 5 sites ????? BOD overpaying themselves the same amount as most similar size companies. Name me a company anywhere where the BOD dont pay themselves well these days ! The best people in the industry dont work for peanuts and if you dont pay it they go elsewhere. Too much debts means a couple of months turnover does it ??? Where is the rotten balance sheet in a business with record levels of output and massive investment in state of the art plant equipment used to manufacture world class products in niche markets with an order book increasing by 30% in the next 12 months and long term contracts already in place. Every C class Merc has turbo housings made by Chamberlin and lets face it the Germans are not fussy about who they deal with ? Banks will soon be nervous. Dont make me laugh ! ! ! Get in when it bottoms out and before the bounce back :)

Pity they don't inform the market, there isn't any regular coverage and people assume the worst, being very illiquid doesn't help. But Quackers seems to know them from the inside, doesn't sound like a ramper and has posted a couple of useful insights. I can add, although its only a small part of the overall, I have a friend with an architectural hardware business and he says their emergency escape hardware is very good and often specified by architects. We have to wait til next month to find out.

Again - falling knife! Rotten balance sheet, bloodsucking management/BOD overpaying themselves in this midget company, too much debts and the banks will soon be nervous unless they deliver significantly better EBIDTA. To be avoided - 50p next stop.

I think that any bad news is already priced in at current levels and the lack of clarification from the board about trading is unacceptable given the major decline in share price. Its difficult to predict where the stock goes from here although the order books are full and the fundamentals still appear sound. The restructuring and investment has all been done with a long term focus on removal of non profitable operations and the expansion of the core business into supply of fully machined parts as opposed to the raw casting thus increasing the margin and the customer offer considerably. I first bought this stock at 47p during the " crunch " when everyone thought it was a basket case. The fundamentals were terrible and the order book was dry. I sold at 127p a few years later and then bought back around 70p when it dipped. I will be watching closely and see the business as having excellent prospects when the dust settles and revenues increase considerably.

Now sub 100p to buy. Price action worries me, albeit on pitiful volumes, but with wide spread, terrible liquidity and just one mm offering anywhere near sensible prices (PEEL are 92/112) it would be a nightmare to get out if there is any bad news lurking.

Yes and have approx 22k shares held currently ( down from 32k last year ). I see a buying opportunity here and fail to understand the fall when the fundamentals remain so sound and the outlook is all good. I sold 10k on the way up and took profits and are now watching the stock closely as its unlikely to fall much further. September is the half year and a positive statement could see a rebound I would have thought and I will be looking to get in before that.

Hi kwackerh2 I agree with all your points , do you work for CMH ?

Chamberlin is undervalued ! The new machining facility is now operational and will add significant value. The leicester site was costing money to run and thats now gone. Walsall foundry is flat out and the new generation turbo housings are already in the bag with improved margins and volumes. Some of the best technical people in the industry are onboard being led by a ceo with a long track record of hands on success in this industry. The group has had significant change but the level of investment and the long term contracts in place mean that the future looks good and Audi and Merc dont buy from the West Midlands unless the product is good :)

Not sure about that baner but the price action and gearing made me nervous buying and the stocko computers don't seem to rate it either, although I appreciate there are big changes happening. I could be tempted if it gets near 75p.

falling knife! fat cat executives milking a dying cow - disgraceful! banks will be very cautious financing this animal - "turbo charger" - how cool is that? 50p and we shall possibly have a look again.
