illiswilgig: Ooops - got my first sentance tangled - should have said that it's unlikely that the business impact is greater - rather than less - than the drop in share price typical! cheers
roddiemac2: Hello bouleversee, It does not take much to drop a share price in these times. Since we have no quantifiable information on which to make a judgement , I will sit tight. This is a very unusual situation.
bouleversee: Thanks, Illis. I feel reassured and shall ignore the share price and await next figures and dividends.
illiswilgig: For what its worth a quick search of the internet reveals that there are at least 4 broker analysts following FSJ. Which seems likely given that it's an FTSE250 company. Platforms like HL will only display information from those analysts willing to provide their product for little or nothing. I'd question whether such 'free' analyst information is either meaningful or useful. I do watch such information to keep an eye on what the 'herd' is thinking. I find the most imteresting situations where my research and views differ most strongly from the 'herd'. Of the 2 broker views currently on Digital Look - one rates FSF a strong buy, and the other a neutral. My conclusion is that the herd is milling around and doesn't have a clue. At the moment I rate the track record of the company and its management well above the track record of the broker analysts. Forecasts - presumably from these same analysts - are for a 6% increase in profits this year. Which is weak compared with the current shareprice of around 20x forecast profits. That should be contrasted with the Chairmans own forecast in the last results of a return to double digit earnings growth in the medium term - which makes the share price look much better value. If the share price continues to drift downwards towards anyting like 1800 I will top up again - even though FSJ is currently my largest holding. cheers Illis
illiswilgig: Steady as she goes 'Trading in line with expectations' Update this morning. Very positive wording on the performance of Tankships and Offshore Oil 'first quarter financial performance at its Tankships and Offshore Oil divisions in the first quarter is well ahead of last year.' Which of course means that at this stage marine support and specialist technical are behind expectations - though the wording is less negative and leans towards timing and H2 weighting. 'Marine Support and Specialist Technical will be more second half weighted this year due to the timing of projects. The pipeline of opportunities in Specialist Technical remains strong.' Overall I am pleased to see that Offshore Oil is recovering strongly after a few bad years and Tankships, long the cashcow of the business, continues to surprise. There is also some media-and-market friendly news on the renewables 'Our renewables business within Marine Support won its first contract for Triton Knoll, a 90 turbine windfarm being built 32 kilometres off the Lincolnshire coast and our high voltage engineering specialist business, EDS, has been awarded a 15 year operations and maintenance contract for Offshore Transmission (OFTO) assets at Greater Gabbard.' Small stuff in the scale of things, I should think, but it shows that a base of long term contracts is being established which will be fruitful in the longer term, very happy. Strong hold - forever. Should there be a sudden drop in the share price, which does happen occasionally I will look to buy a few more. right - time to go back to sleep now I think, cheers Mark
roddiemac2: I thought it was rather unusual to see a soon to depart CEO buying more shares! There were about 720,000 shares traded on Monday; marked as buys included three of 75,000 shares each , two of 34,000 shares each, and one of 66,000 shares, and one of 72,000 shares. There were two large trades, marked as sells ,of 90,000 and 93,436.---all at near record highs in the share price. An article in yesterday`s Times commenting on wind farms producing record power in the recent storms said --" Almost 10,000 offshore and onshore turbines generated 38% of electricity in Britain in the seven days from Monday to Sunday, far outstripping any other source.----Offshore wind farms accounted for 61% of last week`s power, and onshore wind farms 39%.----The capacity of offshore wind farms could quadruple by 2030 under an agreement reached this month between the government and wind industry to help it expand.--- Emma Pinchbeck, deputy chief executive of Renewable UK, said -This record comes just after last week`s announcement of the Offshore Wind Sector deal, which will see our industry grow to support 27,000 highly skilled jobs by 2030, and the UK`s offshore wind supply chain generating billions every year in exports, as well as providing more goods and services for offshore wind projects in UK waters. " FSJ is well placed to benefit from this growth in the UK, ---and then there will be growth in other parts of the world.
illiswilgig: FSJ results out this morning. Very good - but recent share price strength probably anticipated this. Revenue + 13% Profit before Tax +17% EPS +16% dividend - 31.6p +10% Very much in the 'double digit' growth target previously remarked by the Chairman. Also beat all of the forecasts upon Digitalook/WebFG. It actually beat next years forecasts for Pbt and EPS - they were so low. It will be interesting to see what upgrades are made to the forecasts. Outlook statement broadly positive without being specific. Noticable - though small contributions - within the results are the upturn in offshore oil profitability (attributed largely to the RMSpumptools business) and significant increase in Tankships profitability which is impressive from such a mature business. disclosure - happy to say that FSJ is my second largest holding, only knocked off the number one spot by large gains in another share.
illiswilgig: Well. With the share price up over 1800p again today, this board seems resolutely determinded not to take note of the recent strength. Another 6 weeks or so to the interims, but with the period end of June the board likely already have a good view of their progress. The AGM statement at the start of May was quietly confident (the Co is not prone to unbounded optimism) 'Looking ahead, all four of our divisions appear well set with Marine Support and Offshore Oil leading the way. The Board therefore believes that the Group's outlook for the year is positive and that James Fisher continues to be well placed to provide further growth and value for shareholders. ' Quite a change to see 'Offshore Oil leading the way' and I rather suspect the recent share price strength is looking to interims above expectations by a tad, cheers
roddiemac2: illiswilgig, No expensive cars for me. I drive a short wheelbase Mercedes Sprinter van :bought new, now 15 years old. I converted it into a windowless camper ( sleeping capsule / very well insulated ). It beats driving a car ; I get a lovely view from the cab, and It is currently very useful carrying rubbish to the local dump. It got us down to France and Spain for the duration of last winter. I don`t bother about scratches , just the rust patches. I am tempted to buy a few more FSJ. At some point they are likely to do better .Like yourself, and forddrive over on shareprice, FSJ is my largest holding . bouleversee, The current share price may be a consequence of the mood in the market as a whole. There is no reason, that I know of, to believe there is bad news in the pipeline. Daily volume has tended to be low , and mostly made up of small trades. Yours, white van man
roddiemac2: bouleversee, I would not read too much into share price movements here. FSJ will get business from the the decommissioning of oil rigs. They are very unlikely to handle the complete job of decommissioning, but very likely to provide various specialist services.
