I'm not trying to push HSD as an investment but what an awfully poor article; clearly the writer has spend next to no time on analysing the company.

That positive cash flow of £2.1m may sound decent, but the company’s revenue was £214.7m. That means its margins are pretty thin. A relatively small business surprise could thus have a big impact on free cash flow - except £163.3m of that is investment income on it's clients investments, which is a simple pass through the accounts (there's an equivalent entry in costs). The actual revenue on which it is exposed is £51.4m.

Last year, for example, it reported pre-tax profit (on an IFRS basis) of £4.7m. - actually that was the year before. Sloppily the writer has picked up the figure from the wrong column in the accounts.

But what concerns me is the company’s free cash flow. Before it paid dividends, it had net cash inflow of £2.1m. But dividends cost £6m, meaning the company saw cash go out of the door. - I don't know where this figure comes from. Again he's picked up the dividend figure from the wrong column (it was actually £6.1m in the year in question) but, even after paying that, cash increased by £15.5m. So, based on how he's doing his analysis, the comment is mince.

Things could change for the better. For example, if Hansard can cut the £19.1m of new business investment it spent last year, it could sustain dividends at the current level from free cash flow. - I don't even know where to start with that one....

Worth a (re-) read incase (like me) tempted to buy for the yield

Used to have these in portfolio a long time ago, but will wait to see signs of progress first before re-investing. Not many director buys either.

lets say their current AUM is 1.2bn.
value at say 5% = 60m broad brush.

Sales dropping.
No option but to merge with another distribution channel and cut costs.
In the UK, STM is in a similar boat.
No idea about Asia / Japan.

Rather surprising to see no comments yet on a day when the latest results came out and the share price has been moving around through some quite extraordinary gyrations: down nearly 9% then up 6% then down again 5% and now up 4%. Personally I'm a hold but not a buy because I suspect we're not going to see this share recovering from the doldrums any time soon and because the latest slender profit does not inspire confidence that the dividend will not be cut in the near future. But what say you?

For me a close above 53p would be positive for continuation.

loganair: That is correct in big picture (10 years) but in smaller picture (8 years) HSD has increased assets under management in every year apart from one....
So depends if take 10 year view or 8 year view.
Past three years profits has been increasing every year. From Wall Street Journal:
2021 profit 5,100.0
2020 profit 4,700.0
2019 profit 4,600.0

Unlike other similar companies, it seems to me that Hansard's profitability has been in decline for 10 years and during this time having no increase in assets under management.

MRF: That might be so but wealth management is a growing market. There are more and more elderly people (many of them quite well to do) and more and more people with private pension funds. Wealth Management is a growing market.

There really is no future in this type of wealth management offering, its long in the tooth and had its day, nothing is going to change other than it can only get worse, how to describe the past, present and likely future? Death by a thousand cuts.

Margins have been decimated though, would need 3x the AUM to pay the original dividend.

"In fact the assets per share are now back to the level when the dividend was three times the amount it is now."

Indeed - and that suggests to some (OK to me) that we may see rise in the dividend.

Would have added anyway - oh there it is.

How many times has it cut the dividend and how many times has it paid it in full?
Does anyone have the numbers so we can calculate the risk involved?

It appears that they have cut it twice but increased it about 4 times. Dividend been stable since end of 2017.

On face value 8.9% is brilliant. In fact, anything over 5% is good.
In fact the assets per share are now back to the level when the dividend was three times the amount it is now.

Indeed it does - guess that is the risk I am taking.
