mw8156: What's so wonderful about this; it's a paper maker on AIM with a small higher tech fibres business tacked on so how come the share price has gone so high? shouldn't complain as was in at just around 500p
gengulphus: AGM/trading statement came out and does indeed look positive: Gengulphus
yogi: AGM tomorrow and judging by share price movement over recent days should be expecting a positive trading statement...
davebowler: Add from Buy CRPR.L / 282.5p / £25.08m / TP: 300p Event: AGM Likely % change in earnings forecasts: No Change Westhouse; AGM – no changes to forecasts James Cropper gave a trading update at its AGM yesterday in which it said it had traded profitably in the first quarter and in line with management expectations, we are making no changes to any of our forecasts. James Cropper Speciality Papers (JCSP) and James Cropper Converting (JCC) had strong uplifts in sales in Q1 and while Technical Fibre Products (TFP) saw a small dip management is confident that the company is on track for the year as a whole across the group. The introduction of Reclaimed Fibre into JCSP will help reduce the impact of pulp price volatility and increase/protect margins. Having upgraded our target price to 300p at the time of the final results and our recommendation to Buy we are now bringing the latter back to Add to reflect the share price strength since. We are encouraged that the management focus on increasing exports and the margins across the group will continue to bear fruit and can envisage increasing both our target price and recommendation again in due course.
hybrasil: Now only valued at net assets. I feel that on that basis the share price should be in the region of £5.00
davebowler: Westhouse; CRPR.L / 201.5p / £17.85m / TP: 220p from 200p Event: Other Likely % change in earnings forecasts: No Change Increased target price The share price has made good progress since the interim results in mid-November, which showed a small uplift in adjusted interim profits. With the forecast increase in profitability largely as a result of reduced costs and the new Chief Executive in place for the whole of FY2014 likely to drive new sales opportunities, we are increasing our target price to 220p (from 200p) which is based on a target yield of 3.6%. In our view, James Cropper has weathered the economic downturn reasonably well and with the benefits of its capital investment programme, particularly the new facility for Technical Fibre Products (TFP) still to come through, we are happy to reiterate our Add recommendation.
gingerplant: Smallest of the three is Kendal-based specialist paper and advanced materials company James Cropper (LSE: CRPR). At 167.5p per share, the company is capitalised at £14m, but it is struggling at the moment in a difficult economic climate. The question is the extent to which this is in the share price today. The shares were over 240p last July. Cropper has made provisions for restructuring and redundancy costs as it takes the steps necessary to preserve profitability. It reduced its workforce by 8% this year, looking for annualised savings of £1m. The founding family has a large stake in the business, so is more likely than most to take necessarily tough decisions. Brokers' expectations place the shares on a P/E of 12 for the current year, falling to less than 9 in 2013, with a yield of 4.8%. Cropper is also asset rich with net tangible asset value per share of 246p. The problem here is the pension deficit, which totalled £6.4m at the start of October and whose contributions continue to eat into profitability. Nevertheless, Cropper is a soundly managed, profitable asset play, which I expect to weather the current economic storm well. I haven't bought any shares as yet, but may do so on any further price weakness or significant updates on progress.
s_pinch: Obviously I am still under a little confidentiality but TFP have a good set of products that will generate good sales in niche market areas. Speciallity papers aparently is looking much more posative. Overall as a manufacturing business in UK it is doing well to generate profits in this economic downturn. As far as the price is concerned the stats say it all. Look at quick net asset value compared to share price. Look where the land is that the factory is built on. OK, the shops are positioned very badly (who will drag a full box of paper round the Metro Centre or through the City of Liverpool)but this could be changed by following the principles of the origional shop, low rent industrial estate sites, stack it high sell it at a reasonable price and you can park outside for loading!!!! I think that the CEO of the business will drive it through the bad times even if there needs to be some major restructuring of the middle management. This is my opinion. DYOR etc.
hybrasil: now at an all time low trading at about 1/2 net assets. Is that share price deserved?
garth: Praipus, I don't know why CRPR are slow to pass costs on. But if you look at interims, finals, trading statements over periods where the price declined it was on warnings and declining profits (and movement into losses) on the back of pulp prices and energy costs..... The jewel for me is TFP. Significant profit growth here is what was carried the share price up and makes the shares look so undervalued. But the major growth driver has been the US. I have not looked for a while at their position re any currency hedging. A third grizzly in the woods for CRPR would be a slowing economy in the US and - maybe - continued $ weakness. BUT THAT IS SPECULATION and I don't want to sound overly bearish. I believe these are a little gem and the results should be great - I'm just wary of outlook. CR, Hybrasil et al any thoughts? DYOR.
