micha14: @ochs- I think the frenetic trading and its commissions are recurring, and so does HL on their interims earnings call. Sales up 19pc, client Ns up 15pc. The clients which invest for the long term start younger and live longer. I think that the growth of HL in a post Covid world will be faster than in the pre Covid world while as the share price is lower than 1,2 or 3 years ago. We are the end of HLs year and they trading on a multiple of 24, an average of US market. Yet, economics, management, growth rates, shareholder base, are head and shoulders better than average. ITS A BARGAIN HERE, UNDERVALUED STOCK, CHEAP
ochs: I guess Credit Suisse are wrong then, as it is NOT family owned! I think the main reason for the lower share price is still the hangover from the Woodford saga. As a shareholder I'm frustrated that they won't issue an RNS (or at least acknowledge the potential claims in their trading update). The market hates uncertainly and especially the risk of litigation hanging over a company. It's great that lomax99 is so confident that "The claims are without merit", but sadly his view alone won't reassure the market. If HL are as confident as lomax99 believes, then what disadvantage would there be for them to come out and say it? The other reason is the risk of Lansdown or Hargreaves selling more shares as both have done so fairly regularly in recent years. ps. Hargreaves is highly unlikely to sell before Feb 2022 as he always waits for the final/special dividend and the interim before selling.
micha14: I dont get WHY the share price is lower than 3yrs ago despite growth and future prospects? Any thoughts pls?
ochs: I suspect the market was hoping for some comment about the pending litigation/s. By ignoring it and refusing to comment it's holding the share price back. If they are confident the claims are without merit then why not say so?
ochs: micha14, HL is not family owned... Peter K and Steve L are not in the same family, and even if they were their combined total is well under 50% now! You're right about the amazing profit growth over 5 years (and indeed 10+ years) and yet the share price is still much lower than it was 2 or 3 years ago.
ochs: HL share price responding better than AJB at the moment. Big resistance at 1693p though.
lomax99: Telegraph today:Questor: Hargreaves is the investment platform to buy as the Neil Woodford effect lingersQuestor share tip: rivals AJ Bell and IntegraFin are great businesses too but their shares are more highly valuedHargreaves Lansdown's shareholders cared more about its involvement with Neil Woodford than its customers did, it seems.Shares in the investment shop stand 27pc below their level just before the suspension of the Woodford Equity Income fund in June 2019, while shares in rival firms AJ Bell and IntegraFin have risen by 10pc and 39pc respectively. But Hargreaves still managed to attract 220,000 new customers last year to take its total to 1.4m.Despite this vote of confidence by the people who matter, investors' apparent anxiety about the Woodford connection has meant that readers who followed Questor's advice to buy Hargreaves shares in January 2017 have made only a modest 24pc, whereas IntegraFin has gained 82pc since our tip in December 2018 while AJ Bell's shares have risen almost threefold over the same period, annoyingly for this column in view of our decision to bank a quick 50pc profit just weeks after our "buy" advice.We did so on the grounds of valuation, although these three companies fall into the enviable category of businesses that can grow sustainably with minimal need for capital and at very high profit margins. This is a potent mix that offers the opportunity for long-term compounding of returns – and there is no better way for patient readers of this column to grow rich. It also means that, within reason, a high multiple of earnings is no reason to avoid the shares.The key attribute of these businesses is that their revenues can grow while their costs remain broadly fixed. Once they have built the platform that allows customers to trade and hold shares and funds, their costs are little more than those of running a call centre.Meanwhile, there are several avenues to rapid growth. These firms make a percentage of the value of the assets that their customers own on their platforms, so signing up more customers, more investment from existing ones and investment growth when markets rise all contribute.There is every reason to expect more customers to sign up. With each year that passes, fewer workers benefit from final salary pension schemes and are forced to save for their own future. Many existing customers naturally pay in more money to their Isas and pensions on these platforms every year, while fewer cash in their pensions in their entirety for annuities following the introduction of the pension freedoms in 2015.America is ahead of Britain in this respect and gives some idea of the scope for growth in personal investment here."About 3m DIY savers invest via platforms in Britain now, whereas in America Charles Schwab has 30m and Fidelity something similar," said Ben Needham of Ninety One, who owns stakes in Hargreaves and AJ Bell in his UK Equity Income fund, while other funds run by his firm invest in IntegraFin."Probably one in five or six Americans invest, whereas here it is one in 20. So there is evidence that the market in the UK is only in its embryonic stages."Platforms can also make money from share dealing commission and from new lines of business such as "active savings" services, which allow customers to move money from one bank to another in search of higher interest rates with the same ease with which they can switch from one fund to another.Share dealing and the savings services both offer ways to attract new, younger customers – customers who will often in time invest in Isas and pensions and start to accumulate large sums.The three firms, two of which, AJ Bell and IntegraFin, update on trading next week, have different mixes of clients. Hargreaves concentrates on individuals who look after their own money while IntegraFin services financial advisers; AJ Bell does both.AJ Bell's shares are most highly valued at a forecast price-to-earnings ratio in the low 40s. Hargreaves is in the high 20s and IntegraFin is in between. AJ Bell's rating reflects greater growth prospects both for the assets it looks after and for its profit margins.Although we sold far too early we don't see a compelling reason to go back into the stock at a much higher price; IntegraFin is a hold but for new money our pick is Hargreaves, whose shares still seem unfairly punished by the lingering association in investors' minds with Mr Woodford.Questor says: buy Hargreaves Lansdown, hold IntegraFinTicker: HL., IHPShare price at close: £16.59, 540p------It's a shame that they do not include a comparison of Gross Margins.......
ochs: Thanks for your analysis stockready. It's good to see the HL share price pick up around end of tax year on the back of the positive trading statement in mid-March (plus AJ Bell's recent positive update). Certainly the shares have been underperforming the US markets by a long way recently - which is strange considering a lot of HL clients invest in US funds, so HL will benefit at the bottom line from those funds going up in value. The main risk factor at present is the potential for any litigation and is probably holding the share price back from heading toward £20. It would be great if HL could issue an RNS confirming they've responded to the 'letter before action' from RGL and dismiss all the allegations as nonsense. With regards to Porsche1945 you may not have read all his comments fully after seeing red, but I have noted a number of times that he sees HL as a trading share and has made money both long and short. Indeed he's previously posted that he buys around the £15 level for a quick profit.
ochs: Good assessment ygor705, although the recent share purchase was by the CFO rather than CEO. The share sale by Peter H has certainly hit any share price progress and they've been stuck around £15 to £15-30 ever since his sale - despite the DOW hitting further record levels, which is good for assets under management. I actually doubt he'd sell anymore shares after 90 days and would most likely wait another year until after the interim divi in Feb 2022 (as he also sold in Feb 2020).
ygor705: Have been in and out of this stock over the years and having been out for 18 months or so I decided to have another look this morning. The recent things that caught my eye were good interims with healthy increase in AUM, big sale by a former owner in Feb together with an undertaking not to sell any more for 90 days, a subsequent purchase by the CEO at slightly below the current share price and broadly flat share price performance. With so many big financial houses having underperforming and outdated asset management protocols it surprise me that these relatively small asset manage platform companies have not been taken over. Tracker funds and asset management platforms are today's volume investment vehicle of choice for the mass market. In HL we have a former owner who wants to get out! With sterling looking strong US houses must also be looking in this direction. I've opened a position.
