psync: JPM also cuts price target to 2100. Not going to help share price recovery but seems the buy backs are doing a good job at propping it up for now.
loganair: I think this ethical trend and the negative sentiment towards tobacco companies will last for some time and it seems to me before IMBs share price rallies it needs to form a clearly defind base in its share price.
loganair: Why has the Imperial Brands PLC share price slumped 25% in one year? by Robert Stephens CFA: Could Imperial Brands PLC (LON:IMB) (IMB.L) deliver a share price recovery? The last year has been disappointing for investors in Imperial Brands with the company’s share price declining by around 25%. Of course, a number of other tobacco companies have experienced a challenging period, with investor sentiment declining as a result of fears surrounding the outlook for the wider industry. Industry volumes are continuing to fall, with increasingly onerous regulations and a more health-conscious consumer leading to reduced demand for cigarettes. This trend looks set to continue in my opinion, although price rises could mean that cigarettes continue to offer sales and profit growth for companies such as Imperial Brands. The long-term future of the business appears to be in the reduced-risk product segment. This includes e-cigarettes and heated tobacco, with the company’s blu brand providing it with significant exposure to next-generation products. They may catalyse its financial prospects and could lead to share price growth in my view. Of course, it is likely to take time for e-cigarettes and other reduced-risk products to take the place of cigarettes in terms of sales and profitability. But with them delivering strong growth in the last few years, it appears as though declining volumes in cigarettes may be mitigated to a large extent by growing sales elsewhere. Therefore, I’m optimistic about the long-term prospects for the Imperial Brands share price. I think that the company’s strategy is sound, with it increasingly targeting investment on new products that could offer improving sales and EPS growth over future years. Although investor sentiment may remain weak in the short run after what has been a very difficult period for the stock, I believe that Imperial Brands’ P/E ratio of 7 suggests that it offers a large margin of safety. Therefore, as a long-term investor the stock appeals to me, with it having the potential to beat the FTSE 100 over future years in my opinion.
lukmanpatel: Another troll by the username lsehotdealz haha, share price is stagnant and there’s talks of fundraise at 10p on that board lol desperation has lead to going round posting on different board to prevent share price from dropping, usually ud stay quiet and average down and accumulate if you see huge potential lmaoo he’s spamming all the boards
this_time_its_different: Woodford will take some time to sell out, the usual rule is you sell 10% of daily volume as to not affect the price too much when selling. It could Woodford weeks to get out of his position, hence the gradual decline in share price. I can assure it is Woodford and probably another hedge fund (or two) selling, which is bringing down the price so much. When you have billions in stock to move, you don't have the buyers at the higher prices.
psync: Depends what numbers you use for the PE. The FY18 EPS adjusted for amortisation and one-offs was 272.2 giving a PE of around 7 at current price. I guess this is the number that IMB management want people to look at over the reported basic EPS of 143.6. Not sure the fall can be entirely explained by fundamentals as the outlook doesn't really seem to have changed that much. It does seem pretty clear that the share price was heavily inflated by JT takeover speculation which has now entirely evaporated as I believe £40 was the number getting tossed around back then.
wunderbar: Well here we are 4 months into the year and IMB's poor run continues. After 2018's dire performance I was hoping 2019 would offer some hope of a turnaround but alas still no sign of a decent recovery. At 2413p we're not far off multi year lows which is most concerning. Saying that though I simply couldn't resist buying more at these levels (but still looking to offload 40-50% of my holdings should we ever get back to those heady heights of 3000p). It seems 2650p has been a sticking point in recent months so any sustained breakthrough beyond this level could signal a long overdue breakout. Whilst we all know regulatory threats have hit tobacco stocks hard over past year (and acknowledging sector is still out of favour) it should be noted BATS ytd share price is up 17% whereas IMB is up a meagre 1%. If we applied BATS increase to IMB we'd have a share price of almost 2900p and everyone would be happy! Come next trading update I expect firm news on IMB's £2bn divestment programme - this was first mooted in May 2018 with a timeframe of 12-24 months. Needless to say we're 12 months in and still awaiting significant news. Lastly, whilst acknowledging the 10% dividend increase is very generous I'd rather settle for 10% capital appreciation instead. Until next time.
erogenous jones: Ooooh..... looks as if my 4.23% uplift on portfolio gives me some bragging rights! Anyway, by way of a diversion...... FWIW, you can't really make it up, but there are some complete cretins out there (even the ones I have not filtered) who write with a degree of eloquence that is suggestive that they have some comprehension of matters financial......Vodafone go xd tomorrow - there are many that suggest that the share price will not drop by the xd amount..... quite incredible IMO. I cannot work out their reasoning, so, at opening, I fully expect that the share price in VOD is marked to reflect that the dividend that is currently in the share price will be excluded. Of course, the share price will be subject to news, sentiment and market pressure during the day and may close up or down from the opening price..... but that is a very different argument. Unless, that is that I had better simply pack my bags and assume that the City no longer employs any humans, instead engage mathematicians to create a series of algorithims to replicate share price movements based on historic intelligence. I despair.... but fools deserve to and should be parted from their money.
speedsgh: Interesting to note that the IMB share price fell c50% from its high in 1999 to its low in 2000. It did exactly the same from its high in 2007 to its low in 2008/09, down c50%. It is currently down c43% from its high in mid-2016...
jrphoenixw2: Me and Neil Woodford lol - hTTps:// He has a large position in his Equity Income fund. He writes monthly reports on his various funds with highlights. The latest issued yesterday has this to say on IMB. 'Less positively, Imperial Brands detracted from performance, but it is difficult to explain why, other than the shares are currently out of favour. From a fundamental perspective, Imperial Brands continues to be a business which should deliver attractive and sustainable long-term growth, as it has done consistently throughout its history as a quoted, independent business. The chart below clearly illustrates that Imperial Brands has been a spectacularly good long-term investment, with share price performance being underpinned by strong and dependable growth in cash flow, earnings and dividend. Obviously, as we all know, past performance is not necessarily a reliable guide to the future, but from our perspective, the investment case has not changed dramatically. What has changed recently, is the stock market’s level of interest in the investment case – it simply does not fit with the current market zeitgeist, and consequently, its share price has declined by almost 20% over the last twelve months. Interestingly, although the impact of cumulative compound growth makes it difficult to discern in the chart, there have only been two occasions since 1996 when the 12-month share price performance has been more negative than it is at the moment – during the dotcom bubble of 1999-2000 and during the financial crisis of 2008-09. [chart] As a result of the recent share price performance, Imperial Brands has revisited valuation territory that we haven’t seen in many years. The shares currently yield more than 6% which, for such a cash generative business with a long track record of delivering consistent growth, just looks like the wrong price. On a 5-year rolling basis, the shares have never delivered a negative return – clear evidence that, although fundamentals may not always be rewarded over short time periods, over more sensible time frames, they are all that matter. We remain very attracted to the long-term fundamental investment case and added to the position at these very appealing and unjustified share price levels.'
