hxxps://www.aol.co.uk/news/2018/04/11/two-4-small-cap-dividend-stocks-that-could-beat-the-ftse-100/ SECTOR DISCOUNT Like Norcros, shares in Communisis look cheap. The stock is currently trading at a forward P/E of 9.4 and supports a dividend yield of 4.3%, even though earnings per share have grown by 17% annualised over the past six years. It looks as if this growth is set to continue. As my Foolish colleague Jack Tang recently pointed out, Communisis has just embarked on a three-year Value Enhancement Programme to deliver 5%-10% annualised adjusted earnings growth through to 2020, via its three critical strategic themes: Digital First, Global Reach and Empowered Organisation. If the company can hit this goal, then in my opinion, the shares deserve a much higher valuation. How much higher? Well, the broader media services sector is currently trading at a median forward P/E of 12 while the professional and commercial services sector is trading at a median valuation of 14.2. I think Communisis deserves a valuation between the two, around 13 times forward earnings, implying a share price of 95p based on City projections that the firm will earn 7.3p per share for 2019.

So part of the big volume on Thursday was Majedie disposing of 1.4m shares and reducing their overall holding from 5.1% to 4.4%. I wonder who picked those shares up!

Totally agree with your view on the positive impact that Brexit is likely to have on their business JT. It could also help to make them a reasonably defensive investment when markets eventually turn down.

It's strange trading today Mas. Looks like someone is moving their own shares around from one fund to another at the same price for many of the transactions.What occurs to me with Communisis is that it could be seen as a pure play on Brexit. Their business is about customer communication and I can't think of another event quite so likely to generate significant amounts of communication as Brexit. If you look through their leading clients each has to make changes and keep people informed. Whether it is changes in procedure, moving head offices, changing tariffs, changing laws, changing protection cover, account terms etc. At the top of the pile will probably be Customs and Excise. It may also be why the big shareholder has been so aggressive. I can't say that I currently see many good reasons to be in the Equities market right now but Communisis would seem to have a decent story to tell with a potential Brexit windfall.

Results are what was expected so didn't think would drive the price but thought the contract win would. Maybe take a few days before we see a rise as the market digests the news.

The trading statement in January said that results would be "in line with expectations" so for the record consensus (from WebFG) is for: Revenue 374m PTP 17.3m EPS 6.3p Div 2.6p for P/E 10.3 and Y 4.0% We will find out in the morning.

According to Euroclear's latest Stock on Loan Report published yesterday, the CMS short position increased from 3.01% in January to 5.17% in February. The position has been built WITHOUT a single holding reaching a notifiable level (0.5%). Which might suggest the involvement of hedge funds, some of whom have a long history of 'legally' shrouding their shorting activities in secrecy by using a range of highly questionable strategies.
