mw8156: goodbody points to value in fdp when compared with Cloudera's acquisition price, i have no position in either,
asagi: weirdly, I think that the problem here is less the management or the company. The problem is the share price. The revenue and EPS growth is simply not worth the valuation. 44 times forecast earnings for 2022 after five years of EPS growth going backwards. Who the heck is advising Mrs Conlon? Asagi (short FDP)
asagi: KX showed just 10% recurring revenue growth in 2020. The market is currently asking people to pay 43 times forecast (Feb 2022) earnings for that. "Targeting growth in KX exit annual recurring revenue (ARR)* of at least 25% for the current financial year" that's not an exit run rate 25% higher than at the same time in the previous year. It's a target of 25% uplift in recurring revenues for the year. Last year we got a trading statement on July 8th, hopefully we will hear of progress again at a similar time this year. Asagi (short FDP)
sharpish: Page 118, 2020 annual report "During the year the company modified the exercise price of a tranche of share options previous issued from £25.37 to £22.35"Share price goes down, option exercise price goes down.
asagi: This was a bit whiffy to my mind. Released with the set of finals before last: no value specified. No date that the agreement came into operation specified. Just put out at the same time as a disappointing set of results, in a likely attempt at hyping perceptions of the company as a growing global player. A real red flag moment. Asagi (short FDP)
asagi: "Is First Derivatives still cheap?" that could have been a much shorter article. Asagi (short FDP) PS here it is:
badger36: Is First Derivatives still cheap?According to my price multiple model, where I compare the company's price-to-earnings ratio to the industry average, the stock currently looks expensive. I've used the price-to-earnings ratio in this instance because there's not enough visibility to forecast its cash flows. The stock's ratio of 68.2x is currently well-above the industry average of 61.94x, meaning that it is trading at a more expensive price relative to its peers. In addition to this, it seems like First Derivatives's share price is quite stable, which could mean two things: firstly, it may take the share price a while to fall back down to an attractive buying range, and secondly, there may be less chances to buy low in the future once it reaches that value. This is because the stock is less volatile than the wider market given its low beta.
asagi: "Wait until Mrs Conlon clears out her balance and this could hit 12" that's closer to the price that it should be badger36. But I think that true value is lower still. Asagi (short FDP)
asagi: results here: revenue and gross profit level. PBT down 39%. No dividend but debt down £40m to just £9m. Asagi (short FDP)
asagi: I expect that deals like the F1 deals may be 'quid pro quo' where no (or very few) quids actually change hands i.e. you give us your software, we will put your logos on our racing vehicles'. If anyone can quote numbers to the otherwise on the net financial benefit to FDP shareholders do post as such. Asagi (short FDP)
