Joined you and topped up this afternoon Communisis opens new digitisation facility The business took an ECM Connect platform, which is capable of processing 300 million customer documents a year, last year, and has now relocated it to the 930sqm facility. Total investment for facility and platform was £1.6m, and it is part of Communisis’ long-term business strategy, triggered by the winning of a contract to provide an outbound service for a large high-street bank The facility, which opened in April, is Communisis’ first purpose-built site for digitisation, having previously operated from clients’ premises, and the platform has been scaled up. Communisis is now expanding the capabilities of a second scanning site near Liverpool and will be appointing a partner to provide offshore data capture validation and indexing services.

Just taken the opportunity to top up. I notice from the CMS website that Interims are due 3rd August. I wish more companies would maintain a financial calendar with such helpful info.

In Euroclear's Monthly Stock Report for the end of June 2017 published today - there were no disclosable(over 0.5%) short positions in CMS, and just 0.05% of non disclosable positions. St Ives has no disclosable short positions, however, the non disclosable short positions more than doubled to 1.93% from 0.85% in May 2017.

Good spot isis - narrative reproduced below. Those seeking generous dividend yields also need to check out marketing giant Communisis (LSE: CMS). Even though the Leeds business is expected to suffer a 5% earnings slip in 2017, its ability to create lots and lots of cash (free cash flow soared 7% in 2016, to £12.9m) is expected to keep dividends rolling higher. Indeed, a 2.6p per share bounty is currently predicted, up from the 2.42p dividend shelled out last year. And the dividend is expected to move to 2.7p in 2018, helped by an anticipated 5% earnings increase. As a result, Communisis carries weighty yields of 5.4% and 5.6% for 2016 and 2017 respectively. And I reckon the company's ambitious growth plans should continue to deliver explosive shareholder returns. These projections are built on extremely solid foundations. Dividend cover rings in at 2.2 times and 2.3 times for this year and next, while the strong balance sheet should soothe the concerns of even the most jittery investors (net debt fell 23% last year, to £30.4m). Communisis is becoming an increasingly important cog in the marketing strategy of the world's biggest companies and institutions, and the firm is casting its net far and wide to bring in new business. Consequently revenues generated abroad leapt eight percentage points in 2016, to 26%. And the creation of a US office this summer could prove a significant step in the company's growth programme.

St Ives Trading Update - 14 June 2017 Some interesting sector feedback: 'Following a challenging first half of the financial year, the first four months of the second half have, as anticipated, delivered a much improved performance; our expectations for the full year remain unchanged. Strategic Marketing Revenue for the Strategic Marketing segment for the first four months of the second half year was approximately 12% above the equivalent period in the prior year. Excluding the effects of currency movements, like-for-like revenue growth was approximately 7%. As previously reported, we experienced a number of project cancellations and deferrals in the last quarter of the previous financial year, which also impacted revenue growth and operating margin within the first half of the current financial year. We are encouraged by the fact that the segment has now returned to delivering like-for-like revenue growth and also that the operating margin has improved significantly. Marketing Activation Trading conditions within our Marketing Activation segment continue to be very challenging due in large part to the ongoing pressures within the grocery retail sector, the segment's largest single market. Revenue was flat in the first four months of the second half (compared to a 3% decline in the first half) and the pressure on operating margin remains intense. The cost reduction measures initiated within the segment have been implemented and the benefits are helping to mitigate this margin pressure.'

Thanks MT. I see that CMS used to have the HSBC marcomms contract but lost it to SIV 6 years ago: http://www.printweek.com/print-week/news/1119888/communisis-reveals-value-hsbc-contract-loss

Return of the original investment in dividends and 300%+ capital growth in 7 years would see Warren Buffett smiling from ear to ear! Great to see Communisis have won another major print management contract - PrintWeek report Communisis has taken advantage of St Ives ongoing woes by winning the renewal of their materially important print management contract with banking giant HSBC. Question mark over St Ives contracts - Printweek - last week. hTTp://www.printweek.com/print-week/news/1161236/question-mark-over-st-ives-contracts 'Uncertainty over a number of major contracts at St Ives could put a crimp in the group's plans to sell off its print operations. Speculation is also mounting about a number of important contracts currently held by the group. PrintWeek has learned that St Ives has already lost its print management contract with HSBC, which is understood to be moving to Communisis. In addition, two of the group’s major point-of-sale contracts are up for renewal this year. The Sainsbury’s work is out to tender at the moment, with the retailer understood to be close to making a final decision on its future supply. Sources close to the situation believe St Ives is likely to lose out. “Ideally they [Sainsbury’s] want a roster of suppliers,” a person familiar with the situation said. Later this year Marks & Spencer will also go out to tender. St Ives was awarded a long-term contract with the retailer to supply all of its point-of-sale requirements back in 2005, when it also acquired the M&S inplant print facility in Burnley. That site was closed in 2015. Book printing operation Clays lost its HarperCollins contract to rival CPI earlier this year, and is also facing an upcoming review of the substantial contract for book publisher Machete. The HarperCollins contract expires next month, while Hachette runs until next year. A senior industry source said: “Any buyer will want comfort from due diligence that the contracts are going to be renewed. The uncertainty over these contracts probably explains why St Ives has not yet been able to announce a sale. It does not sound good.”

I am not looking for any credit robard. I have had my fair share of losers too. CMS has done well to return such an amount over the time frame though and I thought they were due some credit. After all, how many companies in the sort of pickle they were in can reinvent themselves 'and' continue to pay dividends let alone return greater than 100% of the bottom out in 8 years? It's pretty rare, though I think SGC did something similar. Glad to hear you have done well btw.

Interesting StatThose who bought CMS at the bottom in late 2009 to early 2010 and held throughout have now received all their investment back in dividends. It bottomed at 12.5p and the company have paid out 13.29p since then.http://www.stockopedia.com/share-prices/communisis-LON:CMS/dividends/

Hi Rivaldo, >>I often find that the share summary web sites are out of date >> Yes, agreed, but the reason I posted that link is that appears to show 2017 eps estimates reducing from 6.26p a year ago, to 6.24p 3 months ago, to 5.79p 1 month ago.

Liberum currently forecast (adjusted and fully diluted) 6.3p EPS this year and 6.6p EPS next year (with 2.54p and 2.67p dividends). Finncap's current forecasts are 6.2p EPS this year and 6.5p EPS next year (with 2.6p and 2.7p dividends). I often find that the share summary web sites are out of date - or incorrect.

https://www.share.com/find-investments/advanced-finder/company-overview/communisis/summary/70/ has 5.70p for 2017, 6.1p for 2018. More detail by clicking the 'Communisis forecasts' link

The recent drop and recovery looks suspicious. The drop to 46p last week was possibly triggered by a 2017 consensus earnings 'down grade' to 5.79p appearing on Digital Look at the same time. The very quick recovery back to 54p was largely driven by AT buys. I can find no confirmation of the 5.79p figure from elsewhere - which all have an unchanged 6.2p.

A lot of buying today. Still very cheap and I added myself recently. Obviously around 5% yield is also attractive compared to savings rates.
