garth: TUNG citing increased business as companies move away from paper invoicing. Shouldn't impact CRPR though. Watching to add some more for ltbh. Don't think it's that time yet though.Might well be wrong. It's a great little company. Think we still have a some reckoning to do on global debt. Maybe the Fed will hold it off this time. But a reckoning is coming. Aka Minsky.G.
pireric: And an update on operations at Cropper from 17th April We are still operating and distributing products, although we will be changing production capacity in certain areas for a period to balance supply and demand. Orders remain strong for our Technical Fibre Products, particularly from the green energy sector for materials used in fuel cells and wind turbines. New enquiries are still coming in across the business, including new packaging orders for our Colourform moulded fibre packaging division. There is lower than normal demand for paper, and from Monday 20 April paper production is being scaled back for four weeks. Sales and Customer Service are operating as normal and we will continue to finish and despatch from stock. During this period, more than 200 employees in the paper division will temporarily move onto the Government’s Job Retention Scheme. Other operations including Technical Fibre Products will continue normal production. Meanwhile we continue to adhere to Government guidelines during the pandemic, with anyone who can work from home doing so and a number of new measures in place at the mill to protect the safety of staff and the local community. These include PPE masks being available for all employees. We are actively supporting all staff including providing regular news and updates on our employee social media network, Workplace. Advice and information is available on a number of topics, including health & safety on the coronavirus, help and support networks and tips on working from home or being at home during the lockdown. This employee portal is designed to keep everyone connected in these unprecedented times. In addition, a dedicated helpline is available through our private health scheme for any members of staff who want to discuss issues such as their mental health. We send our very best wishes to all of our customers and suppliers and thank you for your continued support. Think that's all pretty positive really. Especially as we know TFP is the real profit maker in the business. Thanks for the raw material price link, bamboo.
pireric: Liontrust from January Hold: James Cropper (CRPR) Stevens classes herself as a “buy and hold” investor, who doesn't like to trade in and out of stocks, even though the micro-cap space can be volatile, which can create trading opportunities. “We like to hold companies for the long term and let the businesses do the work for us by growing,” she says. “ It allows us to be more relaxed about timing, not to worry about when to enter or exit from a position.” James Cropper has been in the fund since March 2017, and she has topped up the holding along the way. She says: “It’s an interesting business located in the Lake District. They have been producing paper for over 200 years.” The company has three divisions; the main one makes the low-volume high-quality coloured paper that it’s used in Burberry carrier bags, while the most profitable one is Technical Fiber Products, which provides the aerospace industry with a material made up of carbon fibres called non-woven. “You can find it on the outside of aircrafts made by Boeing and Airbus, and Ferrari and Lamborghini use it in their cars," says Stevens. The third division is 3D Print, which produces environmentally-friendly paper packaging that substitutes more polluting plastic packaging. Stevens, however, points out that it’s very difficult to make it and keep the colour: “You have some pulp and you crush it under high pressure into shape. But when you crush it, the colour gets lost.” It is the growth of this final division over the next decade that Stevens is particularly excited about and which will ensure she stays invested for the long-term.
bamboo2: One of the biggest problems facing the co, a year or so before CV, was high input costs as the price of paper pulp soared. Prices of CRPR's main raw materials have dropped significantly over recent months, and this could help towards early reinstatement of the divi, once CV lockdown is over. Input prices down nearly 40% since the peak. Https://
yogi: Good strong rebound in price on back of interims - expect steady rise on back of continuing TFP progress and hopefully new 3D products...
toyin: Garbetklb Correct it is going up by 5.1% per annum because of demand for paper based packaging, which I would say is a good thing for Cropper. All the best In 2011, the pulp and paper industry experienced the highest price point in more than 30 years. The industry had an inflationary trend that experts projected would last through 2011, but in 2015 the record price climbed past the previous peak. Yet again, we are seeing high pulp and paper prices and the question remains, when will pulp and paper prices finally stabilize, or will this inflationary trend continue? Well, according to IBISWorld, the price of wood pulp is forecasted to rise even further at an annualized rate of 5.1% in the two years to 2019. One factor driving the current price increase is supply not being able to keep up with the growing demand for paper-based packaging products.
garbetklb: Over on the ACRL thread (I do not hold) there is comment about a recent sharp rise in the price of pulp. Maybe this has triggered the sell off?
wobaguk: hybrasil, I was one of them. I topsliced *just* after the peak at 32% profit, and when it dropped about 7% i sold the rest. I didnt want to see all my profits walk after a long build as I had happen with PRV. Happy to get back in at the right price of course!
bamboo2: toyin, thank you for sharing. Price has fallen below 200sma.
hybrasil: So Mark Cropper puts another £200,000 in at in excess of £19 per share. Thats bass
