ronwilkes123: Share price says different Rampy
stemis: To be honest I'm more interested in their comment 'no change to guidance'. We are already half way through the year so things would have to take a serious downturn in H2 for the share price fall to be even remotely justified.
carcosa: Pireric, good post. Going back to the query arising from the recent twitter post and in particular the 'No Colour' statement, the phrase is a standard everyday investment terminology which you will hear in practically every analyst meeting. It is as standard as 'long', 'short'. The phrase means a request for additional details. Hence Robert Churchlow was indicating Investor Relations were unable/unwilling to explain the reasons for the CFO departure. As for the company going back to being private then all I can say is that if the MBO want to do a buyout then they can certainly engineer that or take the company private with existing shareholders. Unfortunately I have seen such occasions over the years where they can effectively cause the share price to tumble, say there is no point in remaining listeed and that's that. Job done. Bear in mind that the CEO effectively controls 55% of the company. Furthermore 30% is owned by Golden Sun (Enter latest name version here) which online research suggests is a bit dodgy. Therefore it is not without merit that after this large acquisition trail they have been on that FFI decide to scurry away. But will they do that? The CFO has little experience comparable to his current role but over the last 20 years or so his CV appears to be clean in the finance industry. So there are no obvious signs that he intends to be under-handed with shareholders. Furthermore the earlier profit warnings were due to understandable, although unwelcome, reasons. Further negatives may arise over problems in integrating these acquisitions as they are geographically diverse and it's all new to management. But everything has a price and at current share price there seems to me to be more risk being 'out' than being 'in'. One positive RNS has the potential to turn the share price around very quickly. Recent weeks have shown large upturn in the daily trading volumes, undoubtably a lot is very speculative and has given rise to a volatile share price. I guess that will continue until a trading statement of the Interims (December?) are issued.
pireric: Hi Ron. What would you like to hear about :0) ? From my perspective, in the inteirms, this will show bare minimum under any circumstances $8m of EBIT on my calculations. If they are less convincing on the second half, then maybe $9m to $10m in H2 and 10% below the bottom end of the guidance. If they hold the guide then all is good But in essence, even if they miss the guide by $3m, I still think the market will send the share price up substantially because the multiple of earnings is simply ridiculous. The market is thinking earnings here will halve again, which I am confident is just laughably wide of the mark of what the worst case scenario could look like. And the market is pricing in the worst case scenario because it doesn't understand the levers of earnings here. Will this get taken private? I don't remotely think so. The second warning clearly shows they are cleaning up their act in an industry that is frankly full of lavishes. And also, when Ransohoff wants to eventually call it quits, it's far easier to publically sell a company with proper governance and systems in place. Bottom line, its a very illiquid stock, recent news flow doesn't make anyone want to jump up and pile in. And at such a low valuation, lots of investors second guess themselves (why can't it trade at 3x earnings?). I have no qualms that the valuation will rectify and the slightest ounce of good news around the integration or operational stability will do wonders.
davr0s: Short version. All the reported sells and buys is just taking the trade value and showing if it's below/above midpoint of the spread. The issue is that for every buy there is always someone on the other side of the trade. So for every person selling there is someone buying so these reported sells and buys are meaningless - it's just reporting an exchange of shares. What moves a share price is are the people buying willing to buy at higher prices and vv. So the correct analysis is where is price going and is it going in that direction on volume ie there is an institution willing to move he price
parob: In the auctions throughout and at the end of the day large blocks have been bought. The share price has fallen because sales have outnumbered buys. GHF's twitter post didn't help yesterday just as the price was starting to recover.
tsmith2: So if you don't have a CFO on a board straight after the departure of one it makes you automatically a candidate to be taken private?also, I'm still not sure why buying a share which you intimate will issue a profits warning (with the share price falling as a result) make it a good buy because this would mean the company is increasingly likely to be taken private - why not just wait for the profits warning and buy the shares cheaper and a greater likelihood of making any sort of return..
thechurch333: LOL... To be clear, I asked IR why the new CFO was not appointed to the board. The response was that he could give me "no colour" on why. It is very suspicious that a highly acquisitive company that has already shown weak financial controls should sack its CFO and appoint an internal junior to the role but not put him on the board. This is clearly not sustainable. This company was private since the 1950's. They listed to raise money for acquisitions. They've achieved that objective. The share price must be a shock and an embarrassment to them and it's probably damaging their industry reputation. It wouldn't cost them much to take out minority shareholders and go private again. Just my opinion, absolutely no evidence to support.
pireric: So does the market think he was worth keeping by hitting the share price? I hope not and it's just no-one likes a CFO leaving, despite Mr T sadly failing to do a great job
glasshalfull: Courtesy to declare a holding here. I’ve picked up a few following considerable research over the last few esteemed thanks to pireric for flagging on Twitter and prompting me to research the opportunity here. I tweeted as much around midday today (glasshalfull1 on Twitter) & saw quite a bit of investor interest in attempting to pick the bottom. With the share price down (-80%) since IPO it’s been v interesting reviewing the company performance/ acquisitions over the last 15 months. They really need to put the foot on the brake in respect of any further acquisitions at this time & move to one where they optimise performance in all the moving parts. Far better to under promise and over deliver from here on in. If they do so the share price will re-rate significantly from here. Kind regards GHF
