Top Dividend Posts

topvest: Share price up a tad, so results seem to be slightly better than expected. Below original market consensus of 20.3p though. Standing back from it, EAH seem to have lost a couple of years in terms of profitability growth. 20p EPS not achieved last year or the year before. Maybe 2019/20 then. That's the reason why the share price has declined, and why the main insiders sold a few years back in volume.
topvest: Share price is definitely in a bit of a downtrend, probably catching up with the poor EPS number in 2018. 2019 trade is strong and no doubt the recent weakness in sterling is now providing a headwind versus the 2018 tailwind. You would actually guess that the undershoot on 2018 will likely turn into an overshoot in 2019. I will remain patient. Think we will see well over 20p EPS this year, particularly if £ weakness continues.
topvest: Share price seems to have gone up a little at the bell though, so results seem to have gone down OK.
topvest: I suppose it explains the recent weakness in the share price though. On an actual trailing P/E of 35 maybe moving down to 27 if they now achieve 20p EPS in current financial year. A quality business, but hardly cheap. Dividend yield is 2% though which is not bad.
mad foetus: Yes, it is getting frustrating. Quality company but nobody like a share price that drifts down.
tanners: Panic Investor - IGR and EAH are very different businesses. EAH has as deep and wide a moat as you'll would take a competitor a long time to gain all the regulatory approvals, though I will confess I don't know whether others are attempting to develop rival products. The key is the fact that further authorisations are gained with comforting regularity; the difficult bit as I posted a few weeks back is trying to estimate what each might be worth in terms of revenue. To that end I'm compiling a spreadsheet of approvals, and attempting to link that via results to segmental revenue growth in different markets......I've gone back 5 years and whilst not entirely straightforward, I'm happy to share the results when I'm done; if anyone is interested and I think they are meaningful. In the meantime there will be periods when the share price will stagnate or even drift a bit, these movements do not concern me as long as the approvals keep coming and revenue keeps view is that we are in the infancy of a growth Company so until that story changes I'm staying invested, which hopefully will be for some years to come! PS Off topic - hadn't looked at IGR for some time but gotta say the current management are doing a fantastic real protection of product but impressive all the same, and I'm going to do some further research.
tanners: Indeed......very difficult to guestimate what each approval might add in terms of revenue/profit, but a 2% increase in the share price would appear modest!
nfs: A new investor from a few weeks ago. Disappointing that the share price didn't go up post results but it's been roaring up in the last 18 months, so I have to accept that I need to wait and watch the company performance improve each reporting period and trust the share price will follow
audigger: Would be strange if we didn't have interims by end of next week at latest. As for my bet, it's a little complicated but I have set a stop loss at 491 which means if the buy price hits that level my bet automatically closes. So using my £20 a point example I would lose 528-491 x 20 = 740 quid. However this amount of loss isn't guaranteed under circumstances where the share price is very volatile either due to general market volatility or major bad news for the company. If there is a dramatic fall in share price in one day, say £1,then my loss would be 100x 20 = £2000. This is why you have to stump up extra cash to secure you're bet. They call this a slippage factor and it's always higher for AIM shares that aren't particularly liquid. The same bet on BP, Lloyds or Rolls Royce would be much cheaper. In terms of profit you have a choice. You can set a level at which your bet automatically closes and you earn a known amount of profit or you can keep the bet open up to the expiry date. In this situation I would never set a level at which I close the bet with a pre-determined profit because I have absolutely no idea how much upside there could be especially if the company is taken over by a big player. If....and it's a big if, they were taken out at £10 per share whilst my bet is live then the profit would be 1000-538x20 = £9240. My realistic expectation is to make about £2000 but I am risking losing a minimum of £740 which is unlikely but possible. I'd be very surprised if there was a dramatic fall in share price and I lost £1800....but it's a possibility. I also own shares which I will keep for at least 10 years and hopefully will collect nice dividends along the way. I just don't have enough free cash right now to give me the exposure I want hence the spread bet.
audigger: Now there's a question! Basically you bet an amount on every 1 pence (referred to as a 1 point) movement in the share price. You can bet on the price increasing (going long) or decreasing (going short). At the point at which you open the bet you incur a cost which is the spread in the share price. For EAH when I took out my bet this spread was 498 (sell price)-528 (buy price). Obviously I bet on an increase in share price so I "bought" at 528. This means I immediately incur a loss as the value of my bet is set at the sell price. Say I bet £20 per point on opening my bet the cost of the spread means I'm instantly £20 x 30 (the spread) down = £600. I need the sale price to increase above 528 to be in profit. Effectively a £20 bet gives you the same exposure as owning 2000 shares. To place the bet you need to stump up a deposit/margin which for a £20 bet is about £1800. This is considerably cheaper than what it would cost to buy 2000 shares at £5 (so-called leverage). The downside however, is that you can quite easily loose all your money if the price moves against you. You can manage this risk by setting a stop-loss; a price at which the bet is closed if it moves against you. My expectation is that by June 2017 the share price should be at least £1 higher than it is today (that's no more than a judgement call!) so if that happens with the £20 bet example, the profit is £2000. You can bet any amount from 50p to thousands of pounds. The higher the bet the higher your initial outlay. Its not for the faint-hearted and I would never bet with more than I could afford to loose because it can all disappear in an instant (unlike owning the shares where there is also the opportunity to hold out for a recovery.
