brucie5: Difficult to find this level of yield from a share that isn't about to cut it. Yet CSN held and slightly increased by 3%. It may be that that this 260 level is merely playing out a triple bottom from 2019, given that March lows last year were clearly part of the general Black Swan. It can't really go much lower without sending the dividend to absurd levels. As it is, and without tempting fate, this yield is almost like an annuity if you're happy to forego usual expectations of growth. And of course there's always the possibility of a bid.
speedsgh: John Deane's activity in the open market whilst he has been at the helm of the company has been limited. According to the 2020 Annual Report he held 131,066 shares as at 31/12/20 (unchanged over the previous 12 months despite the large Covid-indiced sell-off). He was then awarded 197,518 shares at nil cost in April this year as part of the company's STIP/LTIP. So by my calculation his current holding is 328,584 shares, worth £900k+ at the current share price. HTTPS:// HTTPS://
thamestrader: My understanding is that SLA, the company, is not selling CSN, but some of its funds (under SL Investments Limited and Aberdeen Asset) are, presumably to match outflows or (worryingly) because they see better opportunities elsewhere. I don't imagine the proceeds will be available to help fund their share buybacks. Only guessing, though.
thamestrader: I've had one tranche of CSN continuously since July '19, which has lost 9.6% (even after dividends), but I have also traded several other tranches all of which have been profitable, some of which I still have. Thanks purely to the divi I have a nice overall profit, without the divi I would show a loss on most of them. I note the latest divi is covered only 0.6x, but this hasn't always been the case, and hopefully it is temporary. The fact they increased the divi, despite its not being fully covered, suggests to me they are confident it is indeed temporary. Here's what the last report said in the subject..... SHAREHOLDER DIVIDEND INCREASE Prudent financial management and solid results mean we have been able to maintain our dividend model and increase the dividend payment in 2020 by 3%. Importantly, this has been done without compromising the financial stability of group. The post dividend group solvency ratio has increased slightly to 156% (31 December 2019: 155%) and the closing Chesnara cash balance remains healthy at £59.9m (31 December 2019: £75.5m) having repaid debt of £15.4m in the year. and later..... 3% INCREASE IN FINAL DIVIDEND The results support the continued growth of the final dividend to 14.29p per share (2019 final: 13.87p per share) ), resulting in a 3% increase in the total full year dividend to 21.94p per share (2019 full year: 21.30p per share). This constitutes the 16th consecutive annual dividend increase for shareholders.
gateside: Likewise... Recently bought PHNX and that has led me to CSNIf anyone has followed CSN for a while, I'd be interested to read your thoughts on how safe the dividend is. Seems pretty safe to me, but I'm no expert on the company as yet.
williamcooper104: No question this looks cheap - given the run up in share prices of others in the sector The yield looks relatively safe Wondering what I'm missing here
joan of arc: What drives the CSN share price?
p49b: I hold both CSN and PHNX and cant help noticing the divergence between them, what do investors think is the cause of CSN share price decline as PHNX has been steadier.
ramridge: This is an extract from the chairman's statement. "The total group cash results have however been suppressed by continued downward pressure on interest rates. In addition, the Solvency II standard formula capital model is more onerous regarding capital requirements for equity exposure during a period of strong equity market recovery." That might explain why the share price has been on a downward slope since the start of the year. FTSE100 climbed over 10% and interest rates have remained stubbornly low. Over the past month, the stock market has declined. So if the view is that the markets will remain in the doldrums, then that appears to be good for CSN share price. Let's see how it pans out.
joan of arc: So why is CSN share price crashing? Fear of competition?
