Courtesy of ADVFN Newsdesk: Jefferies initiated coverage on shares of car retailer Inchcape at 'buy' with an 845p price target on Tuesday, arguing that the "undervalued" distributor could drive upgrades by applying material surplus cash flow to M&A or share buybacks. "Inchcape's valuation does not represent its repositioned business, strong cash flow and potential for upgrades," it said. "After a period of estimate resetting we now expect Inchcape to positive re-rate from depressed valuation multiples." The US bank pointed out that Inchcape proactively seeks M&A targets and has completed eight distribution deals and two distribution acquisitions in the last few years. It estimated £0.9bn-£1bn of cumulative acquisition or share buyback firepower is possible over the next three years, with implied 23% to 48% earnings per share accretion. Jefferies said it sees a sustainable role for automotive distributors, especially those focused on small and medium-sized markets. "Inchcape is reshaping to address the opportunity with profitability increasingly weighted towards higher-margin, higher-return distribution, away from lower-margin, lower-return retail (93% of profits from distribution versus 71% in FY14). "We see a greater understanding of the new shape as a key valuation re-rating driver."

EI I think that depends on whether online ordering is going to be significant or not and the market didn't just decide that today. Maybe there's been a few major investors taking a view on the combination of dropping consumption added to market correction added to general possible trading problems across continents (trade war rumours etc. etc.) - consumer slump - mini-recession. Question is: how much worry is or has been already in the market. I think people (including 'the market') are feeling that sooner or later hell will be unleashed. Analysts and brokers won't want to be caught with their credibility pants down, so its safer to issue 'hold' and 'sell' than 'buy' at the moment.

The only tangible thing I can find specific to Inchcape to trigger todays drop is a broker update from HSBC which downgrades from BUY to HOLD with a reduced target of 650p.

Would question the sustainability of their longer term operating model. You can order cars online now direct from the manufacturer in some cases. The future of distribution, their largest market, is more difficult to say. Inch geared up the balance sheet at the wrong time.

Perhaps there's a bit of deliberate testing of support levels going on, on the basis that the Dow is expected? to have another big down leg - its certainly in no-mans land at the moment and its difficult to see what might send it up to previous highs as the lack of reality of 'making America great again' hits home and the first high turns out to have been artificial. There's still a lot of profit to be banked by nervous people, if they've benefitted from the rise since the recession.

Don't think that is the reason for todays drop - that information has been known for a while & IMO already priced in to Motor Retailers share prices.

This was the reason as reported "Car dealership group Inchcape fell 5.8% to 738p on a 15.6% decline in pre-tax profit in the six months to 30 June amid challenges in its retail market."

Yes, EI, some risks. As ever it's about weighing those risks and looking at the value in the shares. I can't say whether the current arrangement will end at some point. Inchcape is useful to the manufacturers and it may be that the manufacturers will always want distributors and retailers? In some parts of the world manufacturers are prohibited from competing with independent retailers. Valuation? Two months into the current year and management sounded confident today. Current year prospective p/e ratio around 10 at c.680p. Dividend yield c. 4%. Share buyback approved. As you say, cautiously run business (eg.borrowings approx equal cash and cash equivalents, and pension fund is in surplus (c. £70 million)). Geographic spread gives some resilience. Eg. good growth reported today at group level, even though the UK retail side is under pressure. US bond and equity markets are nervous due to forecast interest rate rises. May be a bumpy ride, who knows? Some value in Inchcape at 680p, imo. Should be some broker updates following the results. Will see what they say.

Ed my concern longer term would be the future of vehicle distribution/retail, can INCH continue to thrive in a rapidly changing market, will cars be increasingly sold direct from manufacturers to consumers?. Inch went in to the last downturn with approx half a billion in debt from memory, unfortunately this lead to a highly dilutive RI, they have been ultra cautious on gearing since then.

Well under 'normal' circumstances 700p seems perfectly reasonable, but the market has the jitters imo. Direct Line even posted a special dividend and not a hint of anything negative and the shares have stayed where they are - not exactly expensive. I just hope that the portfolios of anyone that voted for Brexit suffer the same frustrations as mine, as the whole process is messing things up just as we'd recovered from the dreadful recession. No doubt people will blame politicians, but its the UK voters that voted for it. Unfortunately I think the lessons are going to be learned painfully by the very voters that thought it was going to make Britain great again - or some such daft idea.
