Tiger - let's agree to disagree this Late Friday. Have a good weekend. PS. Shoe shine boy - you should write less and think a bit more. Much more. You are what could be safely described as a zealot who is familiar with one version of the story only. You're really are out of your depth sunshine when it comes to discussing (you wish) investing.

CT, you are really wasting your time with this buffoon. He misunderstands Buffett's investment in airlines: what killed him was unions and the commercial landscape of 1970s. In 2016 BRKB invested $9bn in airlines, which tells you what Buffett thinks now about the industry. If Drongo thinks that the market has unrealistically high expectations, it must be in his head because a p/e of 11 is not high for a business like this. He also does not appreciate that DTG is in fact disruptor; it's come into the package business with a much lower cost base than the main competition like Tui and TCG and is forcing them into alternative growth strategies; moving away from the low end travel package business and leaving DTG to pick up lots of new customers. The new planes and airports are not a vanity project of a deluded company and the deferred liabilities are testament to this. But then again this is not information that easily gleaned from staring at a chart and speculating if the share price is going up or down in the next 5 mins. w1

Now, you are talking about revenues doubling in two years but you may want to bear in mind total liabilities have trebled in the last 5 years (obviously due to expansion and hence the break on profits). I expect further significant growth on the right hand side of the balance sheet going forward. Hold on a second. DART was until they took the first new plane just a year ago totally debt free. They had net cash even after flying everyone that had paid. They had a real net worth. They own Hangers, buildings you know Real assets. They had Cash sitting in the bank. The market does get things wrong when you get companies as big as Next falling to 36.00 and then bouncing 28% to 50.00pounds. So there are opportunities Tiger

One more thing using simple maths: expecting revenues to double in three years gives you about 24% pa gwth rate (annually compounded). Rare exanple: Apple has enjoyed about 30% annually compounded gwth in sales over the last 10 years. Think we all agree Apple is a genuine innovator [with airlines being a completely different proposition (lack of durable competitive advantage - Buffett's words on the industry not mine- makes them compete on price grounds only) and having nothing to do with innovation]. It logically follows that for the market to move sustainably north (after all market move higher from A to B on positive surprises) DTG need to delivers growth in excess of your expected 24%. In the context of the Apple - it's clear as day to me why the market is very skeptical (that's why I have said all along the bar of expectations is unrealistically high)

Finally - as most have Buffett as the High Priest of investing on here, one may want to bear in mind what the wise man says: the best time to walk out is when everything is rosy / growth is perpetual in nature / there is no reason to worry about anything. Btw, Buffett has always been extremely careful about airlines due due their a) cyclical nature and b) their commoditised business nature.

"However looking at the fleet size and t/o etc its a fair assessment of where I think the company will be by 2020. I have profits of about 200 m so I have given a 10x valuation. I think the t/o will be much higher than 3b revenue. PLUS 20% 1.7 last year 2.6 current year ended April 3.1 year ended April 19 3.6 year ended April 20 these are things we know as a great deal of NEXT years t/o has been booked." In my view, the mistake you are making is leaving gearing levels completely out of the equation. PE ratios are most relevant in ungeared balance sheet companies (PE was far more relevant for DTG prior to expansion but not the one to count on going forward). Once you leap into debt territory, valuing companies on the basis of PEs is far, far trickier (I would personally never extrapolate on previous such readings but rather employ the EV/FCF instead). As I can't quite work out FCF levels say 3 years out (because of so many uncertainties on the future cost base), I'd rather not speculate too much on PEs. Now, you are talking about revenues doubling in two years but you may want to bear in mind total liabilities have trebled in the last 5 years (obviously due to expansion and hence the break on profits). I expect further significant growth on the right hand side of the balance sheet going forward. The problem is that if ANYTHING goes wrong (recession / bear market for example), the timing of expansion will be prove to be disastrously off while you will still be left with a much much higher cost base. In my view, this is a very strong reason that DTG has not only stalled but reversed its former price advance. You are not the only one working out revenues climbing up 100% in two years. Mr Market already knows that (any wonder most on here are convinced this is a one way bet?). How come the market is spectacularly missing it then? A few (like our resident shoe shining boy) tend to think that markets are constantly stupid and they know best. Contrary to what a many on here believe, markets VERY RARELY (last major one was in late 2008/early 2009 ) make mistakes and miss super growth opportunities. Unless DTG breaks north of 700p (i.e. your fundamental view being validated by market action), you are wrong in assuming you have the downside protected. If equity markets turn tomorrow (with DTG being in the midst of a multi year expansion) one can see all airlines plummet 50-80% (historical averages for the industry) in value before recovering. Using fundamentals alone at such a late stage in the cycle (and choosing to neglect the fact that there is always a reason why markets have priced DTG 40% from its all time highs + is not able to outperform even the FTSE 100 for more than a year) is a bold game. P.S. Incidentally, compare the historical performance of DTG with any super growth story of the past (anyone remembers Internet's never ending growth stories back in 2000) and you will see the true hallmarks of a BUBBLE

£3bn revenue and 6% op margin =s £180m pre tax or £145m post tax with a multiple of 14 and you get a market of £2bn. But there again tea leaves and maths don't really go to go together. w1

100% certainty?You can't be serious. I'd rather pass on that one - must have read somewhere the future is by definition unknowable (let alone give prediction X by time Y - Heavens forbid). P.S. Today was one of the busiest days of 2017 (top 5) volume wise. Interesting this happens days after latest update (which Mr Market completely brushed aside before reversing) and at around crucial 500p level.

Snorkle I understand your view as you're playing for a much longer horizon than I am. One thing I would still argue in your 3-5 year timeframe is that for the share price to double you implicitly are making the assumption that there will be no major bear market in equities between now and then. I personally find that a tall order considering the length of the existing bull market cycle in global equities.In an ideal world, I would like to meaningfully initiate a long on DTG at some stage during the next bear market (naturally, assuming the fundamental case of the business stays intact between now and then). Until then short is my inclination so will see.

Have to agree with you tongosti the share is not acting particularly good after last weeks piece of updated trading news, i'm a bull on this stock and like Tiger have been in from ages back. Whilst the news seems to be pretty positive the stock has not maintained its initial burst and re assumed a slow leak down. I'm always looking for a reason to think that this stock will not double over the next 3 - 5 years and don't seem to see anything fundamentally off. Put this price action down to the overall caution in the UK markets especially companies with uncertainty surrounding BREXIT and exposure to GBP movements. Over the years noticed the stock has phases of lackluster performance, no real heavy selling but not any bullish buyers really pushing and holding the price higher, so far to date patience has been the name of the game, being rewarded by a spell of higher prices. Have sold some positions at times of suspected weakness only to be caught by another leg up so decided to add again today.. Bet you a pint that it hits 550 before 450...

Further added to my shorts this morning. DTG not only failing to respond to (what most on here perceive as a bullish) last week's update but is instead going in reverse and knocking down on the 500p door with ever increased trading volumes.

For the very few who understand (or know) the game: price not reacting to seemingly bullish / bearish news indicates a very weak / strong market. DTG will not advance meaningfully unless the business smashes current expectations (not simply meet them). Share price EXTREMELY vulnerable. Below 475 short positions worth increasing.

Yes fx covered for 18 months. Oil bit longer. Because we fly from U.K. Rather than Europe they do not see it being an issue. It was discussed at length and discussions have been held and representations made. As we take 5 million or so on holiday to Europe they do not see big problems. They were very up beat and pointed out that without the Fx hit which is non cash and has reversed they beat market forecasts . Tiger
