philanderer: :-) Financial Times: Wednesday, 11:45 GMT Imperial Brands’ share price slide has improved the chances of a takeover offer with China National Tobacco Corp as likely to bid as Japan Tobacco, says Investec Securities. The broker also argued that a leveraged buyout of Imperial “appears feasible” at current levels and speculated about activist investors getting involved. “Industry volumes and tax revenues in China are under severe pressure, and a move at this time would be consistent with years of preparation of a ‘going out’ strategy, already seen in other industries. Meanwhile, Japan Tobacco could buy Imperial at a 45 per cent premium to its current share price, enhancing EPS by 30 per cent by year four, and reducing net debt to two times ebitda at that stage (net of disposals and keeping the government stake at 33 per cent); Japan Tobacco is unlikely to signal such a move.”
action: Philanderer, It is coming down gradually from 4300 to 3610. I wonder if share price goes to 2300p will the target will come downn below 3000..
speedsgh: @contrarian @philanderer Can see logic of 2500p & 2200p support on the chart. Yield at 2500p would be 6.8%, rising to 7.5% in FY18. Yield at 2200p would be 7.8%, rising to 8.5% in FY18. Barring armageddon in wider markets (or some unspecified event drastically affecting IMB business), I struggle to see the share price at 2200p. Mind you, markets are often wholly irrational so never say never.
essentialinvestor: That makes no reference to the technology change with the arrival of new generation tobacco products. Everytime Woodford comments on underperformance, the company line appears sppesrs strikingly similar. Just look at his comments on CPI, and then look at the current share price.
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.'
erogenous jones: andyj.... the shares go Xd in a couple of days, that will wipe another 50p or so off the share price so in a sense you are probably correct. However, at some point the shares will be priced at an attractive level for institutional investors to invest. After all, it is they that control the share price not the ordinary mug punter.
action: As i said b4 only bid can stop the share price slide. The way it is droping we msy even see 2900
philanderer: Did the market not like that, p*ss poor. 😠 Sharecast: Imperial Brands was on the back foot after saying it is in talks to help rescue UK tobacco supplier Palmer & Harvey and that it expects to deliver strong growth in full-year revenues and earnings at actual currency rates. Analysts said the share price may be suffering after the group highlighted a "particularly challenging industry environment".
action: Any reson for share price spike today
philanderer: Agree with him about IMB , but not selling my BAT ;-) yesterday's fall.....".Imperial Brands was the index’s biggest faller, with its share price dropping by 1.4 per cent after analysts at US investment bank Jefferies cut their target price" FT
