rcturner2: Can anyone shed light on why the share price has gone into reverse?
tmfmayn: MRF "Also how on earth can this be yielding 6.4% ?" A fair question to ask. If you look in the 2017 annual report, on page 18 there is a chart titled 'Total in flows - outflows'. The yellow boxes show the amount of client money added/lost during each financial year. You will see that the yellow boxes are quite small, and suggest CLIG has difficulty winning new mandates. The market I guess has applied a low valuation to CLIG because of the lack of fresh mandate wins. It is not clear how CLIG will ever win significant new mandates. CLIG management has said there is a 'capacity' to its Emerging Market FUM of c$5bn, and so growth beyond that will involve the group's other strategies, which represent only 13% of total FUM. Recent profit/FUM growth has been based almost entirely on favourable FX and market movements. And yet the staff now take a greater share of earnings through the EIP. It will take notable FUM wins before the share price enjoys a re-rating. In the meantime, shareholders receive the chunky dividend and wonder what happens when Barry retires.
aleman: Thanks. So FUM nearly back to H1 2012 levels when the share price was 380p - except £ to $ was over 1.60 then, so FUM/earnings in sterling now potentially 20% higher.
my retirement fund: Surprised share price is not up today.
plasybryn: Share price looking nicely perky. Ex Div tomorrow of course.
masurenguy: Fancy a Big Divi and a Future El Dorado. Have a Butcher’s at City of London Investment Group. By Malcolm Stacey | Friday 18 September 2015 Disclosure: I have no positions in any stocks mentioned, and no plans to initiate any positions within the next 72 hours. I wrote this article myself, and it expresses my own opinions. I am not receiving compensation for it (other than from ShareProphets). I have no business relationship with any company whose stock is mentioned in this article. Hello Share Thrashers. I know a few of you did your research after I brought the City of London Investment Group (CLIG) to your notice. And I know one or two of you dipped your toes in the water. But when the China thing looked like blowing up, I sold my shares. (I never know if China is classed as an emerging market, but research time, as always, is a luxury when trying to jump the big traders). Since then, the share has fallen back from £3.65 when I waved bye bye and is now sitting at around £3.27p. But I am now strongly tempted to pile back in. This is a well-run company, but what I most miss about not holding shares at the mo is the huge dividend it pays. It’s 7%. Nice. Earnings per share when it reported in June were 26.5p a tasty improvement on the time before which was 19p. The forecast is for 32p per share in the next financial year. The share price has suffered, in the opinion of its chief executive Barry Olliff, speaking to the Investor’s Chronicle, because the west always over reacts to swings in emerging markets. But he says the company has not lost any clients since the China Syndrome hit the fan. The company has an impressive $3.8billion to manage. That’s a bit less than it used to be, but this is a firm with an impressive track record of beating the opposition. The price to earning ratio is zipper at 12.5 and the NAV is 52p per share. Taking a longer view, emerging markets are, in my humble op, likely to boom, even if it’s a longish way in the future. For example, Africa is not half the troubled place it appears. Many countries there are now fighting a winning battle against poverty. And unlike established Western financial markets, those in emerging countries have plenty of room to grow.
tmfmayn: Specuvestor - July FUM on was $4bn, down from $4.2bn at June. So yes, a bit odd the share price has held up I suppose. The tip in the Chronic last week may have lent support. Plus divi remains attractive, if just about covered if FUM stays at $4bn.
specuvestor: I am a long term holder but don't understand why the share price is not being impacted by the emerging markets rout. For example, other emerging market funds such as Charlemagne Capital & J P Morgan Emerging markets have taken a pounding. Any opinions?
aleman: Mas - I agree with your caution but FuM will be benefitting considerably from the strong rise in emerging markets in August. This will be magnified by the gearing effect in most investment trusts and then by fund flows, which tend to see most investors put money into rising markets and sell into falling ones. These gearing effects tend to make CLIG a high beta stock and that relationship is magnifying the upside at the moment. On top of that, CLIG sterling revenues will benefit from the slight strenghtening of the dollar in August. The recent rise may seem highly speculative but there are some good underlying reasons for that speculation. CLIG's markets seem to have done very well last month. Investors are obviously feeling much more comfortable that the dividend will not be cut and have bid the yield down to be more comparable to other high yield shares where the dividend looks safe. With CLIG's markets seemingly so strong after recently being in the doldrums (so there could well be further for the emerging markets' bull to run), there seems no reason for the yield to be at a big premium any more. In fact, if emerging markets do not fall back in H2, we might even see further yield compression to 5-6% because yield is getting very hard to find these days. That would put the shares into the 400-450p range. I admit the share price adjustment is happening faster than I expected but the underlying reasons for such a rise do not seem unreasonable. Yield-hunters are buying it because it stands out as yielding more than other yield stocks even though it has the growth potential of operating in emerging markets. I don't see that it has anything to do with takeover rumours and I can imagine that there could be dividend increases in a few years with a fair wind. These things go in cycles and emerging markets are very much on the up this year after a few years of weakness.
masurenguy: Chairman2 - Barry Olliff has been upfront about his forward retirement planning, both in terms of management succession and personal share disposals, over the past two years. CLIG is basically his personal creation and he has been the prime mover in developing it into a very successful financial services company since its foundation over the past 20 years. His future retirement is therefore significant in terms of both credibility and confidence in the future expertise available to take the company forward when he finally bows out in 4 years time at the age of 70. Therefore he has been very transparent in his plans and he first indicated his planned share disposal schedule in October 2009. At that time the CLIG share price was 295p. He subsequently implemented the share sales at 310p, 350p and 400p that he originally scheduled on that date as the share price crossed the appropriate price thresholds. He subsequently modified his share sale programme when he established his Newlin Foundation to whom he gifted shares and tied their liquidation of these shares into his own disposal programme. He plans to dispose of a further 2m shares, split 50/50 between himself and Newlin, if and when the share price crosses the projected thresholds of 450p, 500p, 550p & 600p. The likely buyers would be institutions who also bought his previous disposals at 310p, 350p & 400p. He is able to do this since 65% of the existing shareholding is held by himself, other insiders and 7 institutions and therefore there is limited liquidity. The only way an institution is probably going to be able to acquire shares in 500K quantities is either from him or one of the other existing institutional holders. Here are the reference points to the prior announcements relating to this programme. "At the end of this year I will be 65, and subject to approval from the Board and also from my colleagues and from shareholders, I would like to stay on in my present position until I'm 70, and then to retire. The exact date of my retirement could obviously be managed to suit all parties. Over the next few years I will gradually be delegating certain responsibilities to ensure a smooth handover." Barry Olliff - RNS - 14/9/09 "As the founding and largest shareholder, Barry Olliff has a stated policy of transparency about his intentions regarding his shareholding, and this is an approach which the Board considers to be very helpful. Barry increased his holding of Company shares in the previous year by 231,103 shares, through a mix of market purchases and option exercises, to the current level of 5,243,683 shares. Now, in the event that the Company's share price achieves 310p he intends to sell 500,000 shares, and he would intend, subject to close period restrictions and other regulatory requirements, to undertake the same at 350p and 400p. Should these intentions alter, perhaps as a result of a material change in market conditions, Barry has undertaken to inform the Board promptly, and an appropriate announcement will be released forthwith." Doug Allison - RNS - 26/10/09 City of London Investment Group Plc (LSE: CLIG) announces that Barry Olliff, Chief Executive Officer, has endowed a foundation in the United States, the Newlin Foundation ("the Foundation"), dedicated to assisting students in the community surrounding City of London's US office in Coatesville, Pennsylvania to attain post secondary education at a College or University. The endowment of the Foundation by Barry will take the form of the gift of shares in City of London from his personal holding. The initial gift will be 500,000 shares. The Foundation's independent Board of Trustees ("the Trustees") has agreed to be bound by the undertakings made by Barry (and already announced) regarding his disposal of shares. This means that the potential disposal of a total of 500,000 shares at a price of 450p and a further 500,000 shares at 500p will come from either Barry's remaining personal holding or from the shares administered by the Trustees or a combination of both, with the total amount remaining the same. The Trustees have further agreed to be bound by all restrictions placed on Barry's disposals, including those relating to insider status, close period and any disposal rules and limitations as agreed with the Company's Board. The Newlin Foundation is entrusted under the auspices of the Chester County Community Foundation, a charitable 501(c) 3 foundation headquartered in West Chester, Pennsylvania, US. RNS - 10/12/10 "Regarding my CLIG shareholding, currently 3,632,580 shares, or 13.5%, I intend to continue with my long term plan to reduce my holding at pre-defined price intervals. As part of my tax planning I have made a commitment to pass an additional 1,000,000 shares to the Newlin Foundation, which currently holds 472,207 shares. The Foundation and I will each make available for sale 250,000 shares at GBP4.50, and the same number again at each of GBP5.00, GBP5.50 and GBP6.00." Barry Olliff - RNS - 06/09/11 In my view Barry Olliff's transparency is a shining example of the kind of principles and intergrity that we should see in the City but is all to rare these days. In my opinion he is the benchmark for the kind of corporate governance ethics than should be applied within all quoted companies. If you really want some insight into his view of the way the City operates today you should read his comments under the 'Migration To Main Market Listing' in the CLIG annual report last year published on 13th September 2010. We need many more people with his kind of transparency and integrity in charge of public companies today compared to the greed, dishonesty and selfishness we seem to witness on a daily basis in so many other companies.
