sphere25: Almost sounds like EPWN are abit more bullish than at the full year results last month. Granted companies don't say as much in the AGM update's, but it sounds like the pricing power is there on the back of cost pressures, which bodes well for the near term. The market isn't keen on moving either way on that update with the price absolutely flat. That could be a sign the market is content with this multiple around the 10 mark and bouncing around at these levels. I guess we wait and see if anything happens in the days and weeks ahead to see if the market is confident enough to expand the multiple. I'd still have a stop in place just in case there was wider market plunge. This market has allowed us to be lax with our stops, you can almost give enormous leeway on proper company trades almost knowing that they will come back up if they wobble. It won't be like that in the future, where moves down will continue down and it will cause a much greater challenge with possible capitulation losses being incurred rather than having more sensible stops in play. The importance of stops will definitely come more to the fore, but at the moment the US continually gets bought up to hold support levels. It bends but never breaks, and whilst that keeps happening, the long trades and positions will continue to work. All imo DYOR
sphere25: There have been buyers in size here at 100-102p mopping up the sells to allow the price to form at least a consolidatory base near recent highs. Just edging higher at the moment and about to test a breakout. The market demand here is suggesting the EPWN 2022 multiple can expand beyond 10 so possibly 11-12? Too bullish to be up near 12? I guess we'll find out. When it is quiet like this, just need to be sure everyone is involved too. Sometimes there are wide spreads in the morning and the odd buy goes through well above what needs to be paid. You can also have the odd little move higher or some rogue order bidding higher suggesting the price is stronger than it is and then everyone gets involved and the price can come back down. If it isn't moving too fast, good idea to check the previous day's spreads to see how they compare so as to not be paying more than needed. DMA is always there but not always easy to get filled in shares like EPWN so it does vary from share to share. All imo DYOR
sphere25: Taken a few here. It looks well bid and some decent buying coming in with a large iceberg (blocks of 9450) cleared at 100p. If that is the major seller here done, then it could push on. We often see pops through psychological marks as sellers congregate there. Price is trying to breakout and close above that key psychological 100p mark. Possible steady gap close to 115p if it can push on the back of the update. As per SFE post, the market is clearly looking forward to at least 2022 with the multiple falling to 10. EPWN hasn't commanded a massive multiple, but some decent demand and an interesting chart so I'm in for a trade. All imo DYOR
davebowler: Zeus- RMI demand patterns remain strong leading to further increases to FY21 estimates Today’s FY20 results are better than the guidance provided in the pre-close trading update (Dec 16th, 2020). The strong trading alluded to in that statement continued through the year end into Q1 2021. The better than expected trading leads to an upgrade to estimates in FY21, pre tax increases c. 12%, and new forecasts are introduced for FY22 and FY23. The announcement that a final dividend will be paid for FY20 is welcome and signifies management’s intentions. ZC estimates factor in a resumption of the 50% pay-out ratio utilised prior to the impact of COVID-19. Despite the double-digit upgrade, forecasts assume an element of conservatism due to movement in raw material costs. The majority should prove short term but if inflation persists current estimates are discounting the current environment. On upgraded forecasts, the shares are trading on c. 16x FY21 earnings falling to 10.3x in FY22. § FY20 recovery picked up pace during H2: Back in September 2020 when ZC reintroduced FY20 estimates, H2 revenue was forecast to decline 5%. The actual performance was growth of 4% resulting in £241.0m for the year, a decline of c. 15% yoy. Adj. pre-tax profit of £5.0m was ahead of the £4.8m forecast, and materially better than the £2.6m number introduced in September. The change in consumer spending habits undoubtedly under pinned the strong performance. However, the speed of the recovery along with measures introduced to allow for safer working practices during the pandemic created cost headwinds. Without these the recovery in profitability would have been stronger. § Forecasts increase on the strength of demand: The strong demand seen in Q3 and Q4 last year has continued into Q1 of the current year with trading ahead of expectations. The c. 80% upgrade to profitability seen in December reflected operational gearing. Today’s increase is predicated on better trading with revenue increasing c. 9% to £282.0m (prev. £259.2m) and pre-tax profit up c. 12% to £11.0m. The only cloud on the horizon currently is raw material cost input pressures. Resin has been trading at all-time highs, materially above the prevailing price in FY19 and FY20, and the cost of things such as hardware has increased due to commodity and shipping costs increasing. These pressures are likely to abate during the year, without them today’s revenue increase would have resulted in an even larger impact to earnings. § Best in class execution during the pandemic: Epwin was early to formally reinstate guidance relative to peers in the building product sector, particularly with regards its intention to recommence dividend payments. This stemmed from the strong operational performance of the business during the first lockdown. It had low gearing going into lockdown, significant financing headroom and hasn’t needed a waiver on its covenants, let alone a rescue rights issue. § Valuation: On FY21 earnings, Epwin is trading on a recovery rating of c. 16.0x with the potential for further upgrades should the economic recovery continue in FY21. Recommencement of dividend payments also mean investors can look forward to a c. 3% yield in FY21 with the potential for it to grow as earnings continue to recover.
rumbers2: Thanks sphere I appreciate your advice. Managing the 'exit strategy' on these day trades in reality means being transfixed to the screen all day. I don't think i could keep that up for long. The lions' share of my pot is still available to invest in the event we do plumb new lows. That might not happen as you say- so looking at solid, well managed companies -preferably with little debt- to buy into long term at these crazy valuations. That's where you have been very helpful. You have a great sixth sense for sniffing out these gems. Perhaps you were a champion terrier in a previous incarnation. Nothing goes unnoticed on your watch!
rumbers2: You are the man with the midas touch sphere. You've made some really good calls this week. I purchased NXR made a profit but bowed out too early this afternoon, due to nervousness over what calamity might envelop us over Easter lol. I also bought APP which I'm still holding. I followed you into EPWN (with diligent research of course) as did many others judging by the prompt flurry of buyers after your post, but think I will hold on to this one also. You may recall i had large exposure to SDY and sold about 40% of my holding at 75-85p just before the drubbing in March. As it went into free fall and drifting in and out of auction during the panic i managed to pick up over 130k at 35-40p so done well on those. I have just realized some of that profit today selling at 55p. I look forward to your daily posts. You have helped me become more adventurous in my investment planning rather than vegetate as a buy and hold shareholder after so many years. Have a happy and safe Easter!
haywards26: Strong share price increases here over the last few days on top of two increased holdings notifications. Looking much more positive and am now back to a break-even investment position, with the high divi income as a nice addition.
thorpematt: I thought that the presentation on the IRFS numbers was very well put together - hats of the the FD and team. So many other companies have been less than transparent IMV. Quielty getting on with operational improvements and significant savings against a pretty weak marketplace. This should make EPWN harder to compete against price-wise moving forward. On track with forecasts. The gearing did indeed hit 1x EBITDA so good terms on the loans and with £29m coming down with those cashflow improvements. Looks pretty strong to me. Got a very tidy yield at ths price.
walbrock82: Writing a conclusion is a bit tricky because I don’t know the effect of the fallout from Entu bankruptcy and how long it will continue to impact Epwin performance. Then again, I feel management is putting out a more adverse statement, either to cover their “asses” or are they intentionally depressing the share price? Right now, the shares are down by 3.7% to 76 pence. Then again, it is continuing to pay a 9% dividend yield, which is eating into their capital reserves! If future earnings forecast remains unchanged, then we are looking at PE of 6 times multiple which to me is far too cheap. Finally, my instincts are leaning towards a BUY on Epwin, but recommend further research into this company. For more on Epwin and other companies’ results from Tesco and Universe Group, click
westcountryboy: I agree that there are currently company specific issues at EPWN which raise particular short term concerns and which have been amply discounted by the share price fall. I value the attempts on this board to assess how serious they are. But I don't think you are comparing like with like. PLP (which I hold) is a specialist outfit with a R/D/innovation angle. SHI was doing badly until mainland Europe perked up, and that sets it apart. ECEL illustrates my point exactly - the share price has not done well, it is very modestly priced and by most criteria is very good value, I would say for the reasons I set out above. If I were to sell EPWN I would probably reinvest in something like ECEL (though it is a bit too highly geared for my liking) or more likely VP. My bigger point was that there is a place for stocks like this in the portfolio at these prices assuming one thinks that the company is well managed over the longer term. ECEL and VP. have better records at increasing turnover than EPWN and that is my main concern about it TBH.
