skirbell Given the global lockdown onmagazine sale outlets I think the outlook was as positive as could be expected. Hopefully with an easing of lockdowns occurring in the key markets, magazine sales will rise again, I believe they have decided not to factor this in at all. Management should always under- promise and over- achieve, this CEO has a ‘canny’ knack of doing that and given these horrendous times I expect her to continue so. Obviously they will be teleconferencing with analysts in an hour or so and speaking to major investors, no doubt we will learn the outcome of those deliberations quite soon. I would hope that the ‘press’ coverage would be very good S

These results do look good from first reading. They are also confident in achieving full years results which are eps of 62p. Their second half has usually been better than their 1st half so the board are actually implying a slow down. I suspect that this might be a little bit of caution given the situation. Or perhaps the 1st half were unexpectedly good. If the second half is in line with previous years, then an eps of 70p+ could be possible. That's a PE of 16(ish) on current price.

Wow! I wish all results statements were like that On a very quick 1st read, it’s an incredibly strong set of results, and the outlook statement is as good as can be expected. Incredible growth, both organic, but chiefly by GOOD acquisitions, improved margins,huge growth in revenues and earnings. Most importantly in a digital world,where Covid-19 has increased the speed into more and accelerated digital commerce and internet use,plays directly into our business model. I expect these results and this statement to receive a very positive response :-) S

Pump and dump or genuine savvy investing, we shall see, broken through 2 lines of resistance today, can it maintain this gain? Tomorrow-It’s all down to the outlook statement imho as earnings we know will be good. Can’t believe the acquisition of TI and the ‘others’ is not going well despite adversities. Certainly any break above £11will be very positive chart wise Till tomorrow I rarely comment on intraday prices as it’s the closing day share price and UT that is of most important, so with that in mind the share price will probably retrace it’s gains ;-) S

Hi zho, apologies, missed your post. Yes, hands up made an error there, was Facebook had a big rally in it's shares after reporting stabilisation of revenue for April. On a separate matter anyone know of the reason for the sudden rise? Level 2 looking it's healthiest for ages. People buying in ahead of results / economy reopening hopes??

>>Facebook had a big rebound in April advertising revenue.>> Is that right? Their statement last night said that there had been significant reductions in demand for, and price of, advertising, but that revenues had stabilised (at a lower level) in the last 2 weeks of the quarter.

Are the markets missing something? No read across seen yet from the Facebook and Google figures. Facebook had a big rebound in April advertising revenue.

Elsewhere ... Future PLC, the difficult to search for magazine publisher and online storefront operator, is down 7 per cent or thereabouts following reports that Amazon’s has cut affiliate marketing rakes. Here’s CNBC, which broke the story:..... https://ftalphaville.ft.com/2020/04/15/1586944047000/Markets-Now---Wednesday-15th-April-2020/

Hi all, My mate Peter @Conkers3 and myself did 2 Twin Petes Investing Podcasts a few days ago in a Special Double-Bill and FUTR was one of the Stocks that we discussed. We also talked in depth about the current mess in the Markets and how we expect things could play out. Anyway, if you use Apple or Audioboom you can find them under the 'Conkers Corner' Channel (you want TPI Podcasts 19A and 19B) and you can find them on Soundcloud at the links below. Cheers, WD @wheeliedealer hTTps://soundcloud.com/user-479955511/conkers3-wheeliedealer-19a-winning-shares-coronavirus-ocdo-sbry-mrw-qe-gaw-futr-tsco hTTps://soundcloud.com/user-479955511/conkers3-wheeliedealer-19b-best-investing-indicator-of-a-recovery-oil-mcs-vrs-kgp

FCA has requested firms not to release results for the next two weeks until firms have a better idea of the impact from the virus.https://www.fca.org.uk/news/statements/fca-requests-delay-forthcoming-announcement-preliminary-financial-accountsMakes me wonder if FUTR might end up revising their guidance or even retracting their 10 March announcement ??

Directors probably not buying because they will likely be in a close period while negotiations are going on regarding the TI deal - the listing rules prevent directors from buying until the deal completes (or falls apart!)

I expect the H1 results in May will be superb and show the potential of what the company can do at full steam. The concern will be the outlook statement and effect all this disruption will have on the FY. If FUtR are still confident and maintain Fy guidance I will probably get back in

Short-term is definitely worrying: measures are in place to reduce overheads in print for the next few months. Future's digital platforms are robust and the company is far more capable of responding to extreme market conditions than the bloated company it was 10 years ago... but an Italy-type lockdown scenario would have an notable impact. I'm an eternal optimist, so my opinion on the next set of financials should probably be taken with a pinch of salt.

@squitter That’s interesting that you are knowledgable about the printing side - do you have insight on the disruption facing the industry? If this virus carries on then I had considered the possibility that magazines dont get printed for potentially weeks or worst case even months - might sound crazy now but seeing the TV reports coming out of Italy I was mindful that it’s a possibility even if the likelihood is still all guesswork. Italy is in total lock down - nobody can leave their houses so I wonder how their magazine businesses are faring? Even now in the U.K. the only place consumers are able to buy a mag is a supermarket or a diehard corner shop as the rest of the high street is closed. Airports are closed. Theres no guarantee our postal system will stay functional for deliveries - Italys was apparently shut down in the northern areas and is now patchy at best. My understanding is that not many of TI titles are available digitally so I wonder how their titles will be produced or distributed in the same way they were only a few weeks ago. How on earth do you value a company facing that?! TI short term revenues and forecasts are in my view an unknown at the moment. I am sure that in the long run as everything returns to normal, whenever that may be, then TI offers huge potential - particularly the specialised titles, but short term in might burn cash rather than produce it - perhaps that’s why FUTR mentioned their facilities headroom in the announcement?

Interesting: I don't know much (or enough, at least) about the ecommerce side of the business, which I know is huge part of the model, my expertise is the publishing side, specifically print. TV Times, for example, is a bi-monthly mag and has something like 200,000 subscribers, which I assume are mostly older folk who are financially secure. So they won't be giving up their subscription in a hurry, especially in self-isolation. I'm also thinking about the bigger picture: I'm sure a lot of investors like FUTR's business model, appreciate that the company had been well-managed in recent years and that this has translated into stellar results. For sure, coronavirus and a possible recession that follows will be a big test of FUTR, but there's long-term value at the current price. I really hope this dips below 500, as long as you're not looking to make a quick buck, it'll be steal at that price.

@Alpha - yes that’s sounds possible but wouldnt you rather buy a tv through What-Hifi after reading the reviews which is more specialised? I thought the tv titles would probably be sold off anyway as the content is to wide and general interest for targeted e-commerce? But the wide audience makes general advertising attractive.

I’m not sure what a consumer might click to buy on TV times site A television? 😄
