essentialinvestor: Thanks for the view. In terms of investment in packaging, that's happening already. The last two conference calls (available on the Investor relations site) deal with this in detail.
essentialinvestor: The first point is don't look at the 5 yr average. That was heavily skewed by the hype around Colin's tenure, the rash of acquisitions and investors assuming very high future growth rates. From memory, the PE was somewhere around 15-16x before then, would have to double check. Components looks a great business, at least atm, helped by supportive macro in fairness. Filters looks stable(ISH). Specialist components a mish mash. Packaging, a huge amount still to do and current rating already assumes recovery in packaging, at least to some extent. There is also a fairly hefty chunk of debt and the dividend looks uncovered, if earnings recover sharply that's not an issue. The current CEO looks capable, and he keeps buying shares, another 20,000 recently. I think it's worth watching.
bozzy_s: Good shorting opportunity here. Combination of several factors: - Long and sustained share price rally up to results day - Expect a lot of profit taking, as many investors 'buy the rumour, sell the news' - Balance sheet and P&L figures look like they belong to a £200m - £500m company, rather than one valued at a whopping £2bn - Net Tangible Asset value actually fell from 15p per share to 2.5p per share. Market capitalisation is currently at a 35,000% premium to NTAV!! - All the annual profit, and more, was spent on the acquisition of intangibles and payment of dividends - EPS of 26p puts these on a high PE ratio of 32 - Net debt increased to over £200m Just a few thoughts. No opinion on how good the company is, or it's products or staff. Just a simple value calculation looking at P&L & Balance Sheet. Reckon there's a fair chance of these falling to 700p very short term, and perhaps 400p in the medium run. Still a massive overvaluation based on fundamentals.
