walbrock82: I think there is some value in the short-term because of future asset disposal which would reduce their net borrowing further and maintain 10% dividend yield (at least for another year or two). And after 2019, the company is likely to experience a terminal decline. The newspaper distribution business will be replaced by digital, as the readers form of choice. As to the share price, I can see it appreciate 20%-30% at best, due to maintaining dividends for two years, but afterwards, Connect Group will become a relic of the past. P.S. Long-term shareholders should avoid this stock. For full analysis of Connect Group and other companies’ result analysis, click I did an analysis on WH Smith when they released their result
turbocharge: "I think this is a compelling recovery story and whichever way you look at it they can afford the dividend. Don't see it dipping below 90p and you can wait for share price appreciation whilst picking up the yield along the way." Nicely sums up what I'm thinking. Might add if it dips to 90-92p
meijiman: I think this is a compelling recovery story and whichever way you look at it they can afford the dividend. Don't see it dipping below 90p and you can wait for share price appreciation whilst picking up the yield along the way. Bought some this morning (first tranche).
zimbtrader: Fenners any acquisition now would, surely, be a pretty stupid decision. Focus on sorting out all the other problems first before adding yet more workload involving integration / rationalisation. Then again, some boards of Directors have done stupid things driven by ego! The share price today suggests "relief" across the board. How it performs in the coming days and weeks will be revealing.
speedsgh: My initial reaction to these results after the 40%+ share price fall since Jan: relief. Hopefully that sentiment can be sustained.
speedsgh: Results on Thurs should show whether the depressed share price is justified on valuation/prospects grounds or whether it is being artifially depressed by a large seller in the market. Certainly doesn't inspire confidence seeing the share price trickle down even further right beofre results when it has already dropped so much. Not sure if I'm looking forward to results on Thurs or not?!
fenners66: Its speculation yes , but not baseless. I was in AHT when the share price suddenly took a dive fr, 240 to about 100. It started with insti selling as they had been sounded out for a rights issue to buy Nations Rent in the USA. Share price had, had a good run up from 4p and we could not understand why it suddenly tanked - then it became apparent .
kenny: Started to look at CNCT as a possible investment but my initial assessment is not positive. The company has no net assets to speak of – the balance sheet incudes a large goodwill figure and large debts albeit some of these will be paid down from the divisional sale. These more or less net off to leave very little in the way of net assets - when compared to a MV of £220m. On one view, the share price is supported by the dividend which in turn is supported by earnings (noting they classify about £5m per annum as exceptional costs – if they are so regular, they are not exceptional, in my view). Any slip in earnings, in turn effects the dividend and the security of the debt – and in the longer term the valuation of goodwill on the balance sheet. It seems likely that the next announcement from the company will be a profit warning. In my opinion, that kicks away all support for the dividend and share price. There is a valuable business here, it is just a question of what the value is and that could be quite a way below the current £220m - depending on how severe/for how long profits fall. Sorry to be negative on CNCT - I was rather hoping I had found a “value” situation to invest in.
edmundshaw: The dividend appears affordable, but I think the company should consider freezing it until debt is reduced or the new businesses start flowing cash. It is quite good enough where it is even with a recovered share price. I don't see the fundamental reasons for the low share price. But of course the company is still in the process of reinventing itself in logistics, and companies that reinvent themselves certainly go througha period of risk generally. Not every strand of the new ventures will be successful, so continued sharp management is essential. Not panicking myself, but also not so bold as to continue adding on a reducing share price. Enough eggs in this basket...
lord gnome: In short - nope! :-)) My best guess is that the share price has been depressed by a stock overhang and that the large trades are indicating that the overhang - or part of it - has been cleared, thus reducing the depressing effect on the share price.
