The average consensus for next year is a PE of 7.45 with a current EV/EBITDA of 7.97 and a positive Graham number.

OK it depends on results but at the moment the price is more like a miner than growth stock.

Prospective P/E 2022-12, 2023-11.5, 2024-10.5 A 3year average P/E that the business has been given is 20.2. It is also forecasted to generate cash flow at a higher per share than net profits. The point being yes this can go further down from here given overall market conditions however it surely is valued very competitively at current prices.

Future plc issued a pre-close FY trading update this morning. Encouraging performance has continued through to year end, management expect full year adjusted operating profit to be at the top end of market expectations, i.e. around £270m. The business has seen a return to organic audience growth in H2 as Covid comparators were fully lapped, combined with continued digital advertising growth and an improving trend in affiliates. Net profit and EPS should more than double in FY22. And valuation looks increasingly attractive after a more than 50% correction over the past 12 months. Share price has bounced 7% so far today and looks to be putting in a floor. The softer macro environment is the main risk, all else points to a solid, fast growing, profitable and favourably valued multi-media name. BUY...

Reach is often compared with Future , in the hope that Reach will reproduce the success of Future . So , today , I note that Future's share price is up 6.37% ( 4.17% for Reach ) , p/e for Future is 13.31 ( 2.74 for Reach ) , and dividend yield is 0.15% for Future ( 6.72 % for Reach ) . All figures are from the admittedly unsophisticated Hargreaves Lansdown site . A subscription-only tip sheet recently commented about Reach " Based on eps of 33.8p and dividend of 7.5p for the current year , the p/e is 3.6 and yield 6.2% . I find it hard not to see incredible value here " . That was when the share price was £ 1.21 which , given that the price is now about £ 1.07 , explains the increasingly attractive p/e ratio and dividend yield as indicated now by Hargreaves Lansdown . Taking the recent cluster buying in the £ 1.22.9 - £ 1.24.7 range by directors as a hint , I have bought back in .

Anyone buying yet? The GOCO deal must be looking like a bargain now considering the current economic climate. I'm not sure at what price to get in?

FUTR might trade on 3x revenues. However, it has BIG profit margins.

I'd compare earnings with market cap + debt to get a fundamental evaluation.

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?

Telegraph view on the acquisition: It’s not over 'til the fat man sings. How apt then that a deal to unite magazine house Future Publishing with the comparison website famous for its irritating adverts featuring a fictional Italian tenor will leave shareholders scratching their heads.

Investors in Go Compare probably won’t have too many complaints about a part-cash, part-paper deal that values the company at £594m. Future’s 136p per-share offer is a 24pc premium to the previous day’s share price, or 33pc if you take the three-month average. And 138p is the highest it ever reached, back in June 2018.

But as for what the publisher of eminent publications such as Practical Caravan and Guitar World wants to do with a price comparison website, well you won’t find too many clues from a company content to waffle on about how the tie-up will strengthen its “proposition of seeking to address the growing consumer demand for informed and value driven purchasing decisions”.

Ditto how “the combination of Future's deep audience insight with GoCo group's expertise in price comparison” is a “truly unique opportunity”. But then again, this is an outfit that boasts on its website about being an “experience-maker”, whatever that means.

A whopping 17pc fall in Future’s share price is much more revealing. The truth is that combining publishing and price comparison sites is not a new idea and the results have been mixed at best. German publishing giant Bauer owns several platforms across Europe but its private ownership makes it difficult to assess whether it has been a successful strategy.

A better example might be the short-lived ownership of Uswitch by American media conglomerate Scripps. Having parted with more than £200m for the fledgling website in 2006, it racked up heavy losses and Scripps offloaded the business three years later for just a few million pounds.

There is an unavoidable suspicion that the deal is a de facto retirement vehicle for Go Compare chairman Peter Wood, not helped by the fact that Future boss Zillah Byng-Thorne is also on the board of the company she is buying.

Though Byng-Thorne has been excluded from the discussions in her capacity as a Go Compare independent director, the connection doesn’t look great.

Wood’s 29.6pc stake will earn him another £180m to add to an estimated £800m fortune, assembled from the sale of insurance brands Direct Line and Esure, which Go Compare was spun out of in 2016.

Meanwhile, further questions will be asked about Byng-Thorne’s seemingly insatiable appetite for deal-making in her capacity as Future chief executive, and whether she needs to keep the acquisitions rolling in order for the company’s impressive growth to continue.

After all, it is only a year since the £140m takeover of TI Media, a deal Byng-Thorne celebrated by offloading £14.6m worth of shares just weeks later. The ill-timed sale triggered an 8pc fall in Future’s share price as investors asked whether it was a sign that her faith was wavering.

Future’s transformation from troubled publisher of forgotten print publications to one of the UK’s hottest media companies has been an unlikely one but perhaps it really has worked out how to make money from digital publishing.

City forecasts have been repeatedly smashed and its share price has rallied strongly from Covid-inspired lows of just 42p in March. But this giant leap into unknown territory will be the biggest test of Byng-Thorne’s dizzying six-year reign yet.

On the bright side, she has come under fire for being “overboarded” – City speak for being on the boards of too many companies at once. This deal at least helps address that little problem

The drop in FUTR share price today wipes about 9/10p off the amount GOCO shareholders receive. That could be a problem
