Quality company that it is, it is hard to see a floor for this one given the uncertainty and elevated rating. Like you Arthur I want to buy in at some point but just don't see what price represents good value. £6?

Positive growth continuing but eye watering energy increases hitting paper margins:

"The average wholesale gas price has moved from 50p/therm to over 250p/therm, peaking at 800p/therm in Q4"

Longer term prospects continue to look great, IMO.

James Cropper Plc posted an impressive set of HY results a few weeks ago as the company rebounds from COVID. Revenues were up 46% to £49.8m, profit before tax was up to £1.9m from no profit, and EPS was up to 16.2p from loss of 0.2p. Obviously business has rebounded from shutdowns to pre-Pandemic levels. But so too has the share price which is back at early-2020 levels. Valuation isn’t particularly helpful, forward PE ratio at around 34 looks a little rich. Balance sheet is reasonably healthy, but share price lacks momentum. Not a bad company, but a share to monitor for the time being....from WealthOracleAM

Agreed Arthur. Multiple is high. But TFP's existing buisness prospects have been enhanced following the purchase of PV3. That is now TFP Hydrogen.

Current market cap £129K

What price TFP in a few years' time?

By way of example, this from August:
At TFP Hydrogen Products we are proud to announce our involvement in the Ocean Renewable Energy Fuel (Ocean-REFuel) programme, has an electrolyser system manufacturer.

The innovative £10M research project will investigate the potential of harnessing offshore wind and marine renewable energy to produce zero carbon hydrogen and ammonia fuels.

CRPR slowly, quietly on the rise and looking like this time it might just break out up

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

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.

Brill, looks good. Thanks.

Could you also add a link to the wood pulp prices?

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.

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.

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?
