garth: CRPR slowly, quietly on the rise and looking like this time it might just break out up :0) G.
hybrasil: Bought a small few today for the first time in 15 years. Last time I bought any they were £2 a share so a brilliant return today
arthur_lame_stocks: Hello hybrasil I've been around but don't post much. I set up a value share thread under the ticker VALUE which you might like to visit. It hasn't yet been ruined by some of the morons you get on here. I agree about TFP. It's a great business and I bought shares here when I was looking for investments to target the shift to green technologies. I hope to hold for some time.
bamboo2: Brill, looks good. Thanks. Could you also add a link to the wood pulp prices? Https://fred.stlouisfed.org/series/WPU0911 As you know these almost halved from the peak, and should have a benefit to the input costs of the traditional business. ======================================= For info, the gap [18/1/2021] on the mid price chart, doesn't show on the last market price based chart. The current chart pattern is an inverse head and shoulders. A bull flag has also formed. The target for the flag is currently approx 1740.
vprt: Garth: Many thanks for your comments. Good to see that you are back in and that you have followed the company for a long time. After some quick research this morning (including re-reading Beddard's ii-review) I have taken a tiny toehold stake today to ensure that I follow it properly. Despite a large pension deficit, paper troubles and a hard covid-hit, there seems to be very significant upside in two divisions. This is very difficult to value on current numbers, but longer term seems to be a promising bet. I like the family ownership and the heavy spending on R&D and capacity expansion in TFP, and that the problematic business is being restructured (a little, at least) with all employees involved in consultations. But as a newbie I have a lot to learn here, and I might bail within months if I lose faith. Obviously, the valuation multiples are quite high whilst short term results are tanking. So I find it impossible to predict share price in the short term, and suspect a rollercoaster is ahead. (Also some risk of a fundraise, perhaps?) I see the acquisition as probably very small (book value £0.7m according to CH) but an interesting statement of intent to grow in what is unquestionably a rapidly expanding market with growth for a decade or more, and like the complementarity. I was delighted to see a very quiet board here! Prefer to avoid the H-hype for now.
garth: Interesting Hydrogen economy move this morning for CRPR. I have been out for a while and moved some funds back in for the long term. Management spent two decades demonstrating that they could build a cutting edge business out of TFP via Fuel Cells and then aviation - that gives confidence re this new bolt on. And I prefer bread and butter plus jam to jam on its own. I am concerned short term though about aviation impact on TFP and on papers with further lockdown. So there is some powder left to follow a possible poor trading statement or it all going wrong this week in the US. It was a little too easy to pick some up first thing so I suspect we may have a seller. Might get interesting if the Green Energy/Hydrogen Economy crowd ever catch on. Any other views? G.
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://fred.stlouisfed.org/series/WPU0911
