I've just taken a look at the most recent results and have decided these are really very good value and generate an awful lot of cash in even the poor years. As far as I can see this last year they generated around £8m of free cash flow by my preferred measure against a market cap of ~£50m. In better years they have generated far more than this. The dividend yield is nearly 7% and the balance sheet is very strong.

They've played the interest rate cycle very shrewdly, borrowing when money is cheap and paying it back when it is not.

The board seem to have listened to investor concerns about their remuneration and this year have taken a far more reasonable wage.

All in all I reckon this is a great opportunity at this price.

Are you talking about the ADVFN board or the Board of Directors? Have they moderated their annual pay recently in line with the performance of the company or do they remain the most over-paid small cap directors in the UK?

Is this board dead?
I have been a very long term investor but CCT appears to be drifting no where.
Any thoughts?

Hi All,
Very quiet board.
I am hoping that CCT will provide a positive update in the near future.
Does any one have any views of where CCT will go.

Hasbro is to cut about 20 per cent of its workforce as the toymaker struggles with weaker sales in the critical holiday shopping period.

How sure are we that the financial situation is going to improve? Because CCT can ill-afford another year like last year. If you look at the cashflow statement the coffers will be empty at the end of the next financial year if matters don´t improve. In the circumstances, paying a dividendof 9p is either reckless or an indication of enormous confidence.

Some kids don't play with toys, too stuck to the screen and it's very sad.

Balanced statement despite the terrible first half. They are profitable, have cash and seem to have a strategy for dealing with the difficult market. I wonder whether the retirement of Richard King will hit the shares? I sat next to him at a lunch a few years ago - clearly highly entrepreneurial but pragmatic.

The management have sizeable stakes in the company too, which I see as a good thing

I've been thinking about an investment too but I may wait for this year's AR to see whether the BOD get huge bonuses despite the average performance.

thanks for pointing that out ALS.

It's not just the basic BOD salaries of £1.3m it's the performance bonus of £2m on top that seems overly generous.

That's from the 2022 AR.

I've been looking at CCT as it looks to be in pretty decent value territory and has a decent library of content to fall back on. Haven't really looked far enough yet but it's on the watchlist.

Just ask Google’s Bard AI to give you the search impression data. Make sure you use Bard not ChatGPT though as it’s more up to date.

Very quiet board. I have not seen any recent news re CCT. The share price is going actually nowhere. Just thinking of dumping my holding.

It appears that Henry Spain are slowly moving to a large position in CCT. Just wondering if they are building a stake for some one? Any tjoughts?

In the announcement on 22 December of the results for the year ended August 22 it was stated that “as anticipated at the time of the update in October 2022, trading conditions have become more challenging and sales have slowed in the lead up to Christmas.”

In the trading update issued on 20 January the shareholders are now being told that “revenue for the four months to 31 December 2022 is down approximately 42%”.

In my view a drop of 42% is not sales slowing - more falling off a cliff.

Applying the 42% fall to last year’s half year accounts gross profit would reduce GP by 9.5m turning the PBT from a profit of 6.5m to loss of 2.9m, assuming no increase in administration costs.

The directors talk about the second half of 23 rebounding strongly. I hope they are right but I don’t have confidence in that being achieved.
