kaos3: I think the whole business will suffer more due to the structural changes because of COVID. More troubles ahead. But out of it CPG will be a huge winner - when the dust settles. Still waiting before buying (also due to the general market conditions). A share that is a high priority on my watch list.
kaos3: started to reserch - lots to like - strong balance sheet - high ROE combined with low PE makes it cheap - strong delevered BS - clear world leader with good contracts - despite CV19 this grew into an advantage because CPG has large clients and if they reduce workforce the critical BE mass remains - which smaller competitors loose - strong resiliant governmental, defense, offshore market - an interesting shareholders list - low capital intensity - huge buying advantage - position on the higher margin market - innovations a la vending

andyj: A rare opportunity to buy into a very well managed and expanding business at a discounted price.
essentialinvestor: As I mentioned on the other CPG board late last year the rating looked full given a cyclical element to the business. Many a moon before this gets anywhere near £20 again. Had a very small amount.
suetballs: Well at least the capital raise price should put a floor under this. What about £10 - a nice round figure? Suet
adamb1978: Thankfully sold my shares yesterday. EPS forecast for this year is 36p, obviously because of Covid-19. Question is how quickly that bounces back and how close to where it might have been. Obviously c.10% increased share count won't help. Will keep on my watch list however I 'm not sure that the historic 20x PE will be seen again - thats a punchy multiple in the UK. Perhaps it gets back to 60p EPS next year, growing to 75p-80 over 3 years....and 15x PE? 900p share price in the near-term and 1200p mid term?
la forge: Compass : Plans to Raise GBP2.0 Billion to Strengthen Balance Sheet, Liquidity share with twitter share with LinkedIn share with facebook share via e-mail 0 05/19/2020 | 07:38am BST By Ian Walker Compass Group PLC said Tuesday that it is seeking to raise 2 billion pounds ($2.42 billion) via an equity issue to strengthen its balance sheet and liquidity position during the coronavirus pandemic. The U.K. catering contractor said that the money will be raised via a share placing under a bookbuild program, subscription and retail offer. The number of shares to be issued and the price will be announced once books close. It said directors and members of the senior management team have agreed to subscribe for up to GBP1.1 million of new ordinary shares, the company said. Last month Compass said it won't recommend an interim or final dividend for fiscal 2020, and that its chief executive has temporarily reduced his salary by 30%, both due to the coronavirus pandemic.

the grumpy old men: PROACTIVEINVESTORS Giulia Bottaro 10:23 Wed 27 Nov 2019 viewCompass Group Compass numbers point to flat returns, says Liberum The broker downgraded its recommendation for the FTSE 100 catering giant to 'hold' on the back of the latest results Compass Group - Liberum downgrades Compass to ‘hold’ Compass is cutting costs Compass Group PLC (LON:CPG) shares continued to head south a day after the catering giant's annual results as analysts said a new round of cost cutting have negative implications for investor returns over the medium-term. The results revealed that the FTSE 100 group's diversity in geographies and divisions “does not make it immune to the macro environment”, said broker Liberum, downgrading its recommendation to ‘hold’ from ‘buy’ and cutting the target price to 2,000p from 2,240p. READ: Compass profits undercooked as its moves to counter European slowdown The cost-cutting will offset short-term margin pressures but will incur “substantial” cash costs which, paired with recent acquisitions, imply “no scope for further cash returns to shareholders”, Liberum's analysts said in a note to clients on Wednesday. Compass said in its preliminary results a day earlier that it is “taking prompt action to adjust our cost base” in Europe and certain other markets outside the US, resulting in non-underlying cash charges of around £160mln spread across the past and the new financial year, plus a non-cash charge of £140mln. Statutory operating profit fell 5.4% to £1.6bn and revenue swelled 6.4% to £25.2bn. Liberum revised group organic growth forecast down to 5% and 2020 forecasts are now expected to be flat year-on-year, as the strong pipeline in North America meets caution over volume and performance in Europe. Shares in the company, having risen to an all-time high in the summer and up 27% since the start of the year until the results, were down 3% to 1,866.5p on Wednesday morning.
