Top Dividend Posts

davidosh: I see that it has been super quiet here with no posts in two months. No Covid update from the company yet either but I fail to see how it will have a major effect on revenues and I am sure most staff can work from home. Does that equate to a 20% fall in the share price? I also note the move by Harwood Capital on Fulcram Services today by way of a tender offer.
rivaldo: I absolutely agree with you as regards past performance. But I get the feeling from the tone and language in more recent releases that the promised synergies and economies of scale are at last within reach and may reap some or all of the hoped-for rewards. In the meantime I'm happy to collect decent dividends and know that HMLH are on a theoretically very, very cheap rating, which may enable the share price to almost double from here from the point at which sentiment finally begins to improve. And given the company's size and lack of available shares such a re-rating wouldn't take long to happen. Anyway, the next trading update is in late April/early May, so at least it's good to have some positive news flow until then.
graham1ty: Rob Plumb retires with 820,000 options presumably to be abandoned, as all out of the money. The 2014 options have an exercise price of 33p, which shows what the share price has done over five years ( down if you had not noticed). The 2015s were at 41p, 2016s at 32p, 2017s at 36p and 2018s at 33.5p. He has 190,000 options from 2013 exercisable at 15.25p. So, at 32p they are worth about £30,000. Not much of a return from options issued over almost a seven year period. His shares are worth a short £ million. Obviously if the share price was 60p he would have £2 million. But it isn’t.
psync: It's a big old chunk especially given that there seem to be few other institutions with holdings here. Unicorn Asset Management seems to be the only other big one with 8.11% in their VCT portfolio. I had a direct holding here for a while but it seemed like the kind of company where it would take a long time for value to be reflected in the share price. Much happier to hold via OIG.
rivaldo: Interesting that the CEO has decided to retire and hand over to the COO after 14 years at HMLH. So the Mello presentation in 10 days or so should be interesting - hopefully the new guy in charge will reveal his case for reinvigorating the company and re-rating the share price. Any thoughts from long termers here regarding the new leader and how things might differ from hereonin?
rivaldo: RNS today - the AGM will be on 17th September. Last year saw an, erm, "succinct" trading update. Hopefully this update should be positive given the cheery outlook in the prelims: Https:// To reiterate, the forecast for this year is 4.7p EPS, with a 0.5p dividend. That's per Finncap, who have a 57p target.
davidosh: Well...long suffering shareholders who have seen zero growth in the share price over the last five years may have an out ball if current management are unable to deliver the returns that investors deserve.... Equistone Partners Europe Limited, a European mid-market private equity investor, has signed an agreement to acquire FirstPort, one of the UK’s largest residential property management firm, from Epiris and Chamonix Private Equity. The financial terms of the deal are undisclosed and completion of the transaction remains subject to approval by the Financial Conduct Authority. FirstPort, who, at The Negotiator Awards 2018 won the Silver Award and in 2017 a Gold Award, says its management team (pictured, above) will remain in the business to “pursue the same customer-focused strategy”. FirstPort manages 196,000 residential properties across more than 3,900 developments throughout the UK and the company works with developers, investors, freeholders – as well as over 200 Resident Management Companies – to provide services to leaseholders.
igoe104: Finn cap upgrade. The results were slightly ahead of expectations in virtually all respects. The business model continues to deliver consistent growth and cash generation and the group remains well positioned to benefit from any further tightening of industry legislation. We have raised our target price by 8% to 57p, implying potential share price upside of 68%
rivaldo: Excellent - results are ahead of even the recently increased expectations. 4.6p EPS compares to forecast 4.3p, revenues of £28.1m compare to forecast £27.3m and the dividend is up 12% to 0.47p. The outlook is confident, stating "We are confident in our ability to maintain this momentum while we continue to build our network and our central support divisions." I'm guessing Finncap may go for almost 5p EPS this year, which makes the share price pretty cheap. It's also good to see trade receivables decreasing despite the big rise in turnover. Investment in centralising the business continues - neverending! - but it seems the benefits are indeed beginning to come through as the narrative suggests, with more to come. I'd assume there will be further earnings-enhancing acquisitions from cash this year too.
rivaldo: It's where the share price is going that interests me. I completely agree about the past (though I'm a more recent shareholder). But acquisitions are at the core of the company's plan, so intangible amortisation will continue to be a factor given the sector and types of companies it's buying. It's therefore necessary to accept that (or sell!). EBITDA will have risen from £2.1m two years ago to likely £2.8m+ this year, and adjusted PBT from £1.8m to probably £2.4m+. Adjusted EPS will have risen from 3.7p two years ago to likely 4.5p+ for the year just ended - so a 22% rise in the last two years is not too shabby at all. More importantly, given the £2m paid for recent acquisitions - all from existing resources - Finncap's new forecasts for this year and beyond will be interesting. I assume (and hope) they'll be conservative, but 5p EPS would mean 35% EPS growth in 3 years. Again, pretty decent.
