Volsung, Looks like madness to me, but you've been playing this one like a genius so far so .... Citi downgraded to hold today. It is not surprising to see Directors starting to cash in some of their gains at these levels.

IMS right on cue. Looks pretty solid, but they still seem to be benefiting from the interest profits which they are expecting to reverse and probably carry a high margin. Shouldn't be considered recurring revenue IMV. Without this I suspect revenue would be down and profits down substantially. Shares look massively overvalued to me, but the market doesn't seem to share my thoughts on the interest issue at the moment. "The helpful interest rate environment which increased margin during the first half of the financial year is expected to unwind during the second half of the 2009 financial year. However continued divergence between base rate and LIBOR has maintained margin for the third quarter. The decreased margin will be delayed until the fourth quarter and beyond. The proportion of assets held as cash at 31 March 2009 was 19% compared to 18% at 31 December 2008." http://www.advfn.com/p.php?pid=nmona&cb=1239863749&article=37303541&symbol=L%5EHL.

Of HL's revenue £15.9m was badged as interest (split is in investor presentation) this was up from £6.5m in H1 last year. The growth of £9.4m compares to total revenue growth of £7.8m, so effectively all the growth is coming from this! H2 last year was £10.2m of interest in revenue so a much harder comparable in H2 compared to H1. IMS possibly due (9 April last year) so hopefully we will see whether or not revenue growth is slowing due to interest rates falling.

Out of the £8.9bn in Vantage accounts, £1.6bn is in cash. If HL. have been making a margin on the High Interest Cash Offers then the erosion of this margin is going to hurt profits. A 0.5% margin equates to £8m of profit, a 1% margin £16m. "Clients have further increased their cash weightings during the period. The composition of assets across the whole of Vantage changed during the period. As at 31 December 2008, Vantage was made up of 24% equities (30 June 2008: 23%), 58% funds (30 June 2008: 63%) and 18% cash (30 June 2008: 14%)." http://www.investegate.co.uk/Article.aspx?id=200902110700110955N

If I understand this correctly then HL. has been making both good returns on their own cash and a margin on clients cash (although I may have misunderstood this re: clients cash as I would have thought these should be in segregated accounts). These profits are set to unwind. "In this period we have seen our returns on cash increase, reflecting a combination of an increased proportion of client assets held as cash and the divergence between base rate and LIBOR. The exceptional interest rate environment has also enabled us to provide High Interest Cash Offers to our clients, giving them access to the high interest rates available during the period. Going forward we expect these effects to unwind and returns on cash to reduce due to the low interest rate environment. Our challenge will be to replace the income we have received from cash." http://www.investegate.co.uk/Article.aspx?id=200902110700110955N
