Good question, I'm surprised this has been able to stay independent as long as it has, especially given how much of the revenue is now American.

Current P/E now less than 14 . At what price does this become a bid target ?

Intra - day reversal today. Hopefully the start of the big move up until the interim results in May.

Cheap 12 month PEG of 0.5 will also keep this share bid. 0.5 PEG is cheap (attractively) priced growth.

Quite a few reasons I would guess
1) Overall market sentiment. This is one of very few British based very high growth stocks in a modern economy sector. This area is not flavour of the month given the tendency for higher rates to follow inflation and thus - according to most conventional investment theories - liable to suffer weaker ratings.
2) There may be concern over the contribution from GoCo given much less company choice available for utility users as lots have gone bust and we all know gas prices are about to rocket. Though a statement from a near rival the other day Icannot recall which one) was mildly encouraging.
3) In the UK we are all feeling the pinch to some extent. People may be less ready to extend media subscriptions, companies tighter fisted in commissionng advertising. A stock like S4 has pretty much collapsed.
3) The company has to a great extent depended on acquisitions to fuel growth and equity issuance to pay for them. Goodwill and shares in issue have exploded over the past few years and at September, for the first time in years, debt has also been used in significant size.
4) Slight oddities in personnel movement - notably the woman who was the CEO of an acquired company (sorry, again my memory deserts me) and who subsequently left Future with somewhat indecent haste.
5) Zilla the CEO has made some very large share sales and as you point out was after a pretty hefty remunerative reward. I can't help feeling she probably rubs some people up the wrong way and demands a lot from all staff.
6) I would guess growth will be weaker going forward. Against that, the valuations look much better, this is a really exceptional and dynamic company and I very much like the fact that they have big US interests. They also, I believe, have a simply brilliant stable of brands. Which is why I still hold most of my shares and intend to continue with them.

Stock is starting to creep up but haven't seen any recent news to trigger it. Was expecting it to be flat until the pay discussions had been concluded, I am assuming that was the reason for the decrease in share price as the performance otherwise looks great. Thoughts/ insights?

Thanks AB4, that's a very interesting linkage - FUTR's previous response to recessionary concerns and a current BoE view - Hugh Pill from what I've read is a pretty bright cookie. I'm not so sure about the present Guv though!

Looking back the lowest forward PE I can find from the last few years is 17.84 which was back in late 2018 (when the market was down around 20% on worries the Fed was going to raise rates too quickly and create a recession so it ties in pretty well). By my calculations that now equates to £27.83 so that looks largely priced in. Back then the concerns proved unfounded and Future had a fantastic 2019 going from £4.80 to c£15. Note if this had the same PE as back in September Futr would be £45 so that's the immediate potential upside outside upgrades.

There is the possibility the market is making the same mistake on rates again, especially given the hit to incomes from tax rises and utility bills in April. The FT is quoting this from Huw Pill from yesterday:
Keeping interest rates at 0.5 per cent indefinitely would leave inflation above target in the medium term on the latest forecasts, but raising them as sharply as market pricing implied — to 1.2 per cent by the end of 2022 — would take inflation below target.

“I leave it to you to draw any implications for where the MPC sees the path of bank rate headed,” he said.

love the "screw you" signal the ceo sends back to the market after they mark the stock down 10 percent post the inline trading update. The world needs more ceo's like this.

Not really rated that highly now though is it? PE circa 19-20 isn't particularly racey given track record? Think it's just the market we're in currently, hammering high beta stocks at every opportunity.

I can only assume for such a highly rated stock some investors take an "inline" statement as indication that growth is slowing and hence the stock should no longer be rated so highly.

Stocks such as Future need to keep beating expectations for their share price to keep growing. Any sign growth is tailing off invariably leads to a mark down.

Struggling to understand the market reaction. Eps forecast for FY2022 is 157p as far as I can see. Puts PER under 20 which is very low for a high growth stock.Consensus broker forecasts are £40 plus. Anybody got a view/explanation?
