engineer66: I'll look out on 7 Nov. Share price very weak recently but still a growth stock and valuation reasonable.
simon gordon: Motley Fool: A Technology Share With Decent Upside By Malcolm Wheatley 20 April 2012 Positive noises from a British success story. It's a couple of years since I last took a look at a business that I've had on my watch list for a while. But an end-of-year trading update, ahead of full-year results due in June, piqued my interest. And, it's fair to say, I've not been disappointed. e2v Technologies (LSE: E2V), as I remarked the last time I looked at the business, is probably not a name you'll recognise. But fancy moniker apart -- which I've never understood, anyway -- the business is the old Marconi Applied Technologies. Prior to 1999, it was the English Electric Valve Company. Advanced technology Forget the heritage, though. e2v these days is a very different business, as a quick glance at the company's website confirms. e2v products find themselves in some peculiar places: the Airbus 380; the F18 Super Hornet jet fighter; image sensors fitted to the Hubble Space Telescope, the International Space Station, and space probes orbiting Mars, Venus and the sun -- and, of course, a very profitable line in the Radio Frequency technology underpinning medical body scanners and other high-tech applications. The trouble is, space and defence haven't been good markets to be in of late, as companies such as BAE Systems (LSE: BA) have been finding out to their cost. Customers such as the United States Department of Defense, NASA and our own Ministry of Defence have been suffering budget cutbacks, and that has translated into lower demand for e2v's products. Recovery To its credit, the business has been battling these problems for a while. Throughout the recession, it's been consolidating its manufacturing sites, making more of its more civilian-centric Radio Frequency technology, and reducing debt and overheads. And this week's trading update is a very different story to the one investors were greeted with two years ago. Take a look: ■Full-year trading performance now expected to be at the upper end of management's previous expectations ■Positive progress in executing key growth programmes in the US and Asia ■Positive progress in building our market positions in key application segments. Cheap And while we'll have to wait until June for the financials, the numbers that we were given looked encouraging. 10% underlying turnover growth; above-target operating profit margin of 17%; a reduced interest bill of just £2.5 million, and a modest -- £2 million -- increase in net borrowing, due to the purchase of a manufacturing site in the United States. The order book is down, admittedly, but that was expected. Today's price of 139 pence puts the company on a forecast price-to-earnings (P/E) ratio of 11, yielding a FTSE-average 3.5%. Given the turnaround in the business's fortunes, I think that's cheap. And analysts at Investec Securities, one of the few brokers to cover the company, agree. Placing the business on the average P/E of its peer group, they say, points to a share price of around 200 pence.
jodi17qad: I think the best one can say is that the price drop is on small volume, although I had anticipated a rise in advance of the AGM. In fact the share price is quite volatile for such a small company, perhaps reflecting the narrow share base. According to REFS, 73.8% of the shares are held by certain major holders, with 1.76% held by the directors, so that the volume of tradeable shares is quite small.
simon gordon: Indie - 7/6/11: E2V Technologies Our view: buy Share price: 127p (-6.5p) The electronic components manufacturer E2V published is full-year figures yesterday – and on the face of it, they looked nothing short of spectacular. Adjusted pre-tax profits in the 12 months to end of March stood at £33.6m, against £9.4m last year, while net borrowings, excluding debt issue costs, stood at £28.1m, down from £44.8m last year. The company also had some cheery news for income investors, reinstating its dividend with a 3.6p per share payout, after nothing last year. Beyond that, there was news of strong underlying sales growth and a healthy order book. As the analysts at Seymour Pierce quickly noted, the strong results made E2V look like a growth company. From where we stand, the fact that its share trade on affordable forward earnings multiples of around 12 times also makes it look like one to buy.
jodi17qad: Sustantial sales today for some reason, although share price apparently unaffected.
simon gordon: Seymour Pierce - 4/5/11: We believe that further good news along the lines of that seen in April will, see the market continue to re-rate the shares upwards. Given the strong market positions and the generally low capital requirements, we regard a PER multiple of 14x FY12E as appropriate. This is a discount to the wider Electronics and Electricals sector because e2v has a less than compelling history and remains relatively poorly exposed to emerging markets. This yields a share price target of 160p, broadly equivalent to EV/Sales FY11E (ex non-core) of 1.8x. We maintain our BUY recommendation and look forward to the Prelim Results in June for further evidence of growth.
alun rm: Yes, very nice to see E2V on the 10 o'clock news last night. The thought that E2V's technology has been instrumental in finding planets that may be capable of sustaining life makes me warm inside. But if the share price goes up to £1.50 I will feel even warmer.
alun rm: 'He writes and charts as if a share price has a life and soul of its own when all it really is is a picture of past results' Peter, I think the key to understanding 'the art of chartism' is to understand that the share price chart is created by demand that is derived from a market full of human's who have got lives and souls. In effect the life in the chart reflects the life in the market. Understanding past events and current trends increases one's chance of predicting future possibilities. It is not an exact science, but it is a useful tool. A good example is the way E2V broke through £1. The line in the chart is unthinking (no life and soul) but the market players respond to the movement through the price to create a self fulfilling prophecy. It happens so often that it is difficult to ignore. Don't get me wrong, it is only one small part of a complicated and dynamic market place, but we all look at charts and the human response to them helps chartists to make their predictions. I for one love Fingers Charts, keep posting Simon!
petersinthemarket: I have come across fingers before on other threads. He has a following so maybe my views would seem like herecy to them. He writes and charts as if a share price has a life and soul of its own when all it really is is a picture of past results. I do believe in following share price momentum so occasuionally I will trust and even follow the direction in which a chart is going but I believe that more than that is witchcraft. ''I am always sceptical about forecasts, especially those that deal with the future.'' How many rich chartists do we know? pim
