Personal marker at 1050p re RW - To watch list

Very quiet thread - usually indicative of a good value share - Query however the move to veg based meats?
Looks like I missed a falling knife - Just luck - However also missed the bounce from 497p.
Any value left? Or likely to fall back as a result of falling real disposable income as a result of increased taxes and inflation.

Hilton Food Group plc posted Prelims for the 52 weeks ended 1 January 2023. Group revenue was up 16.5% to £3.8bn underpinned by the contribution from newly acquired businesses, a first full year of trading in New Zealand and an inflationary impact. Volume growth was a more modest 4.3% to 513,816 tonnes. Headline operating profit was down 14.8% to £54.0m after exceptional items of £11.9m, relating predominantly to the 2021 fire at the Group’s Belgium site, adjusted operating profit was down 3.3% to £71.1m with margins taking a hit in the inflationary environment. Adjusted basic earnings per share was down 26.4% at 45.1p, financing costs rose through 2022. Valuation looks pretty reasonable with forward PE ratio mid-third, PS ratio top quartile for the Food & Tobacco sector. The balance sheet is in decent shape, share price is building some positive momentum this year, the macro outlook is the main risk from here and margins in the sector are tight anyway. HFG is a solid Food name at a decent price, with decent 4% dividend yield and decent prospects. Easing inflation pressure should help support margins. BUY...

I have compared margins for two business that I consider pretty similar, HFG and premier food., over about 5 years.
Gross profit margins for HGF average at about 12%
Gross profit margins for Premier average at about 34%
Operating margins for HFG 2-3% vs Premier 15%.
Operating cash flow is very similar, capital expenditure much higher for HFG.
Are margins thin because of capital expenditure, which should drive growth, or is there anything I am missing behind the low margins?

A period of misfortune for HFG, I totally missed a good entry point

The pro business policy shift from the previous Sunak et al, along with the extra money in middle to high earners pockets should translate into some cheer however small for the likes of hfg imho. The focus will now of course turn to vat and business rates in the usual autumn budget, the later probably be for helping smaller businesses however? It's a step in the right direction I think anyway? Had a buy order in for cheeky 595p which obviously wasn't filled but there's always Mon lol.

HFG margins was already impacted by the higher interest cost, further interest rate hikes will need to be cushioned somehow

I don't think it is a demand warning, volumes are up (in terms of tonnage) and in terms of revenue, obviously sale price rise increases revenue.
I think raw materials inflation will ease eventually, in the near future. We are seeing oil prices declining already. That is nothing happens in the political environment, especially considering that NATO is eyeing to sanction China!

"While we benefit from the strength of our diversified business model and continue to grow volumes internationally, Hilton has not been immune from the impact of macroeconomic headwinds. Across our markets, we have seen volumes come under pressure with the cost of living increasing and consumers becoming ever more cost-conscious. In our Seafood business these trends have been exacerbated with world events leading to unprecedented raw material price increases.

Given these factors, and combined with the impact of start-up costs and rising interest rates, the Board now anticipates that profitability for the year will be below expectations"

If it isn't a demand side warning, it is a cost side warning. Some will be doing both which could really get the alarm bells ringing. The harsh reality of this market is that you simply cannot do a warning. The market marks you down on in line statements (or eventually causes a move down), let alone a warning.

If you're loss marking like TRST and ITM recently, or THG today, you just continue to get obliterated. If they have a decent cash runway to eventually not burning cash, and the market turns in time, some could pop back when the market regains those roaring bullish spirits.

I just wonder if there might be a few takeover bids soon too if the cash runaway is at least a few years out (and buyers see a realistic chance of profitability) as the brutal beat downs continue.

Overall, it is just a proper cleanse by the market.

All imo
