rivaldo: GMAA had an excellent H1'17, as evidenced by the rise in the share price since they were published. This despite the claims which were first made between Nov'16 and Feb'17. It seems that GMAA were able to operate extremely well without this being any kind of distraction. Given the bullish outlook, I suspect this will continue to be the case, especially judging by the tone of today's RNS.

rivaldo: Agreed. We've seen this before in GMAA, and it's just a case of being patient. The share price has doubled from the lows in less than a year, so there is bound to be a profit-taker or two. I'm confident that this re-rating will continue. As these results are absorbed by the institutions over the next few weeks we will hopefully see further buying.

rivaldo: New Buy tip for GMAA on Motley Fool: Http://www.fool.co.uk/investing/2017/09/06/unilever-plc-isnt-the-only-growth-giant-that-could-fund-your-retirement/ "Unilever plc isn’t the only growth giant that could fund your retirement Royston Wild | Wednesday, 6th September, 2017 I have long sung the praises of household goods leviathan Unilever (LSE: ULVR), its rich history of generating strong earnings growth, whatever the weather, making it one of the ultimate ‘peace of mind’ shares out there. But the Marmite maker and Persil producer isn’t the only stock that could deliver stonking returns long into the future. Indeed, Gama Aviation (LSE: GMAA) is another share I reckon you might be able to retire on. Plane brilliance The business aviation service provider has been a stellar performer in the year to date, its share price gaining 82% since the beginning of 2017 and soaring to 16-month highs above 250p just today, following the release of half-year numbers. The Farnborough-based company advised that revenues detonated 45% between January and June, to $291m, a result that powered underlying pre-tax profit 40% higher to $7m. Chief executive Marwan Khalek said: “The first half of 2017 has seen the group maintain the positive momentum generated through last year to deliver a good performance in line with our expectations… in all divisions and all regions we achieved strong revenue growth and encouraging improved margin performance.” The company saw US Air revenue rise 74% in the six-month period, and it advised that “the integration of the BBA aircraft management business into the US Air division is progressing well and benefitting from a buoyant US market.” Gama merged its aircraft management and charter business in the US with that of BBA Aviation back in January to create the country’s biggest aircraft management firm, a move that created significant cost benefits and expanded its global footprint. And at US Ground, Gama saw revenues shoot 19% higher in January-June thanks to the impact of new base openings last year and fresh contract wins. A strong North American marketplace was not the only cause to celebrate, however, with Gama noting that at Europe Air, “operational efficiency initiatives completed in 2016 have produced strong improvements in gross profit and EBITDA margins.” The flying ace also reported “modest revenue growth and improved profitability” at its Europe Ground. And elsewhere, Gama advised that Middle East Air and Ground had showed “encouraging growth” in the first half. Those seeking an immediate earnings explosion may well be disappointed — Gama is predicted to endure a 31% earnings drop in 2017. However, I remain convinced that next year’s predicted 9% bottom-line rebound should start a run of chunky profits advances. Despite hitting fresh share price summits on Wednesday, Gama boasts a forward P/E ratio of 10.2 times. And I reckon this is unmissable value given the company’s improving position in a growing market, helped by the impact of recent M&A activity."

rivaldo: Cheers fizzypop (and x54v) - here's a direct link. The P/E of 7.1 is ridiculous. Good to see WH Ireland reiterate their 370p target: Https://www.sharesmagazine.co.uk/news/shares/shares-in-air-services-group-gama-are-looking-cheap "Shares in air services group Gama are looking cheap 06 September 2017, 13:09 Business jet services company Gama Aviation (GMAA:AIM) enjoys a 3% share price hike to 255p as its reveals a revenue increase of 45% to $291m in the six months to 30 June. A large part of this improvement is thanks to a revenue increase of around 74% in its US air services arm, reflecting the company’s game-changing management merger with part of BBA Aviation and the growth of the Wheels Up contract. The latter’s contract is a membership-based US private plane service which greatly reduces the cost of being able to fly in a private jet. CHEAP VALUATION Gama is trading on 7.1 times 2018’s forecast 36p earnings per share based on broker WH Ireland’s estimates. WH Ireland analyst John Cummings describes this valuation as undemanding and gives the company a buy recommendation with a 370p target price. STRATEGIC MOVES Gama chief executive Marwan Khalek says that as much as he values the Wheels Up contract ‘it was becoming a big part of the business’ and the deal with BBA helps ‘recalibrate’ the company’s offering. He adds that the deal helps to reduce concentration risk in the business as the deal with BBA not only offers coast to coast coverage of the lucrative US market, it may lead to cross-selling opportunities with BBA. Khalek admits not much of this has come through yet, although he expects cost savings to follow in due course. GENERATING CASH Another positive part of Gama’s results is the $5.1m reduction in net debt to $14.3m. Some of this, $4.2m, was due to the disposal of legacy aircraft but the business is also becoming more cash generative. The company’s pre-tax profit stood 40% higher at $7m. Underlying earnings per share is up 25% to just over $0.12."

corrientes: Yet more of the same again. Happened last time, opened up significantly higher, then gradually dropped throughout the day. Just what is wrong here ? Still a lot of disbelief or indifference to the story. As a completely different animal now, the excuse of the increased share price over the last year, doesn't wash since it had been a lot higher before then.

twirl: Very good results and prospects. Share price reaction as expected on results day. Short termers eager to sell.

rivaldo: It's merely a case of market sentiment imo. The share price fell to a stupid level largely due to an incredibly idiotic sale of stock which drip-fed the market over a very long period of time. It's since recovered pretty nicely, but still has to fully regain the market's confidence. I suspect that the upcoming results - and in particular the outlook going forward - will improve confidence in the stock still further.

rivaldo: Glawsiain, thx for the summary from ST's tip - I managed to obtain the whole thing as follows: "Poised for take off Aim-traded Gama Aviation (GMAA:250p), an operator of privately owned jet aircraft, has issued the robust trading statement I was expecting ahead of interim results due out on Thursday, 7 September 2017. I outlined the investment case just over a fortnight ago (‘Four small-cap plays’, 3 Jul 2017) when I noted the unwarranted undervaluation relative to peers even though the company is now producing growth across all segments. Yesterday’s trading updates did nothing to dispel my enthusiasm as it revealed that Gama’s fast-growing US aircraft management business continues to benefit from strong organic growth as well as the Landmark fleet joint venture with BBA Aviation (BBA:307p); its European air operation has extricated itself from some underperforming legacy contracts and is benefiting from cost savings and margin improvements; and its European ground services operation is seeing higher maintenance activity on the back of contract wins announced earlier this year, and a ‘modest pick-up’ in discretionary aircraft improvements and modifications spend. This suggests that analyst expectations of a 10 per cent rise in EPS to 33 cents this year look well founded and that the shares are likely to maintain their ascent to narrow the 40 per cent ratings discount with peers as highlighted by analyst John Cummins at broking house WH Ireland. Trading on just under 10 times EPS estimates of 26p using an average blended exchange rate of £1=US$1.28 for 2017, with net debt set to fall sharply this year, so offering scope for further earnings enhancing bolt-on acquisitions, and offering 20 per cent upside to my new target price range of 275p to 300p, I continue see decent upside here. It’s of interest too that Gama’s share price is pressurising the 250p level that acted as a major support level until May last year when it gave way. A break-out above this key resistance level is worth noting as it narrows the odds significantly of a run up to my aforementioned target price range. I would also flag up that my fair valuation is well below the 370p target price of house broker WH Ireland and could have scope for upgrades if the current momentum in the business continues. Buy."

rivaldo: Here's Simon Thompson's full tip (thanks mate) - he's increased his target price to a still conservative (imo) 275p-300p: "Gama shares in the ascent Aim-traded shares in Gama Aviation (GMAA:240p), an operator of privately owned jet aircraft, hit my 250p target price last week, having risen by 15 per cent since my full-year results call with finance director Kevin Godley and chief executive Marwan Khalek ('Five small-cap buys', 29 Mar 2017). I previously advised buying at the start of the year at 175p ('In the ascent', 23 Jan 2017), although this has proved to be a volatile holding and the price is now only back above the 225p level at which I initiated coverage, albeit it did subsequently hit a high of 380p in late 2014 ('Ready for take-off', 12 May 2014). That said, this year's share price recovery looks fully warranted. The company's robust pre-close trading update ahead of half-year results on Wednesday 19 July is highly supportive of adjusted EPS, rising by 10 per cent to 33¢ as forecast by analyst John Cummins at brokerage WH Ireland. Gama's fast-growing US aircraft management business continues to generate strong organic growth and is also benefiting from the Landmark fleet joint venture with BBA Aviation (BBA). Importantly, "right sizing" the company's European air business and exiting from underperforming contracts is paying off and this unit is on target to deliver modest growth. Modest growth is materialising from the European ground services business, too, underpinned by "increased maintenance activity from contract wins announced at the start of the year, as well as the return of some discretionary aircraft improvements and modifications spend". Importantly, the directors "are focused on building on the improvements in operating margins, working capital and cash conversion that we delivered in 2016". That's important for the company to achieve its target of halving net debt to a range $9m to $10m by the December year-end. It's also supportive of the progressive dividend policy, and further bolt-on acquisitions. Last year's acquisitions of FlyerTech and Aviation Beauport are on track to achieve their budgeted growth after posting strong first-quarter results, and "are working on enhancing cross-selling opportunities and new joint sales initiatives within Gama's European air and ground services divisions". Trading on 9.5 times forward earnings, representing a 40 per cent ratings discount to peers, and with another upbeat outlook statement likely later this month, I am upgrading my target price to a range between 275p and 300p to reflect the operational improvements being made and de-risking of earnings estimates. Buy."

corrientes: Marwan Khalek quickly responded to an email I sent him recently expressing my concerns about the question of financial transparency and the steep decline in the share price.I also mentioned that certain small but high profile companies had ended up as disasters, and effectively said that if absolute transparency was not forthcoming, it might send the wrong message to the market. Nothing new, but he did mention that the mid- January update would provide further clarification on the numbers. The company is also obviously disappointed with the share price performance,but he did say it will communicate with investors as frequently and as clearly as possible. If these numbers are finally accepted, then hopefully the present share price will soon be a distant memory.
