Yes, personally I take it as a positive that they are being sensible on high street stores.

The business is only really seeing more customers recently. Before that, it probably benefitted more from a higher gold price rather than more customers. Even now some customer growth is online rather than footfall. People can buy jewellery and watches online as click and collect (less in-store browsing, wider choice. and probably some home delivery) while loans to established customers can be processed online and maybe some forex. The mix of the business is changing. Some shop business will be shrinking and some growing, and I would not hazard to guess the net balance, but I suspect most of the top line expansion is coming from increasing online activity, which might not need more shops to support it, depending on national coverage.

Interesting. I agree that recession is fairly close. Think H&T are a nice company though and happy to hold. It’s interesting that despite good results they haven’t opened a new store for 2 years. Anyone any views on why?

Availability of unsecured credit fell at a faster rate than any point in the last recession in Q1 2018. It was the 5th consecutive quarter that unsecured credit availability fell. To make matters worse, demand for secured credit fell sharply. Default rates on unsecured credit have risen 4 consecutive quarters and actually been on a rising trend since Q1 2016. Defaults on small business loans fell strongly. Medium business defaults rose. Large business defaults rose strongly.

Credit markets were already tightening moderately for a year. In Q1, they tightened sharply, though the outlook for Q2 suggest less again.

Yes that augers well. "trading has remained strong" is probably a sensible read across for HAT.

Ramsdens update indicates full year slightly ahead of expectations. Http://uk.advfn.com/stock-market/london/ramsdens-RFX/share-news/Ramsdens-Holdings-PLC-Trading-Update-and-Notice-of/77138806

I gather investors Chronicle have a issued a BUY recommendation at 358p.

While we await new broker estimates i think we can safely and perhaps conservatively assume EPS for year ending '18 of say 35p. So with the share price back down to 335p today the forward PE is only 9.6. That seems very good value to me.

new accounting rules reduce it by £6.3m

guess some of the fall maybe due to the nett asset fall on change of accounting rules i can see no other reason if there is any slow real slow down in the economy then it could affect the loan book but pawnbroking should benefit guess we will find out at some point volume appears low

Yes the brokers estimates are way too low given EPS came in at 30.94p.

I reckon 2018 targets will be hit without any further growth this year. I expect these figures to be revised up as updates come through. 2018 2019 Broker Date Rec Pre-tax (£) EPS (p) DPS (p) Pre-tax (£) EPS (p) DPS (p) Numis Securities Ltd 13/03/18 ADD 15.10 33.70 11.00 16.30 36.30 11.5

Yes, the online concept is a new source of future revenue and it is interesting that they said that it will sit alongside the bricks and mortar retail shops as some business cant be done purely online but equally for some customers the online offering suits. btw a nice divi here to collect too. Paying nearly a 3% yield.

Very pleased with these results with earnings coming in higher than I expected. Personal loans and online Jewellery sales were the highlight, both showing very strong growth, there was growth in all of their divisions. Will be interesting to see how the www.est1897.co.uk website performs, I have just taken a look at the site and was pleasantly surprised at how easy it was to navigate, revenues of £1.0m from a low base of £0.1m is an earnings stream that could be increasingly significant. Would like HAT to be a core holding now in the portfolio.

Note how the figures have shown lending and online sales have grown through the year. If they just maintained year-end levels for the business, they would probably hit 2018 forecasts. Add in further growth to lending and online sales expansion over the next 12 months, and 2018 forecasts look like they will have to be raised a bit so the prospective P/E is probably only 10. That and a likely 12p dividend should leave some room for appreciation. Whilst I have some concerns about rising impairments in a slowing economy, the loan book is only 20% of a strong-looking balance sheet so impairments are not likely to be big enough to cause trouble for now. It all looks quite promising.

Results look ahead of forecast to me. Rev's £110m (£100.5m), PBT £14.1m (£12.9m), EPS 30.94p (30.2p). Divi 10.5p (10.25p). "Future with confidence". Sparkling!

Forecast-beating results bring the P/E down to 11 and the company's cash generation increased strongly before investing in expanding new loans and stocks for resale. This was despite the gold price working marginally against them ( seemingly a minor factor these days). The 18% rise in the final dividend after a 10% increase at the interims bode well for next year. Provided they are keeping their eye on the ball with regard to impairments, these are excellent results.

Wow, fabulous results. EPS of 30.94p well ahead of broker estimates which means that the 2018 forecasts will now be blown out of the water..

Any views about what will be said about IFRS 9 on Tuesday. It won't impact 2017 results (which should be excellent) but they did say that they would highlight the impact on 2018 & onwards within these results?
