Share price is currently undeservedly low. Will recover, 25p target is realistic.

I think you'll find that MCL is something of a strategic hedge against a consumer downturn. Anyway good luck with your INSE shares. In theory, managing other people's energy in times of turmoil should be a stable business.

Pictureframe - INSE is a well managed outfit, run on a solid and sound basis, and is unlikely to be involved with any of the small energy providers, it is the just large providers INSE deals with to my knowledge.

RNS - Slater Investments have increased their stake in INSE - they now have 33.8797m shares, up from the 33.1m shares they had in early November: Https://inspiredplc.co.uk/investors-shareholders/ NB: their % holding has obviously reduced due to the placing.

- I had a look at MCL and SSY. At a quick glance, the hIstoric EPS pattern at SSY Looks erratic, which I consider a future risk. As for MCL, if I am not mistaken, MCL makes its profit from financing private purchases - not a safe game with Brexit round the corner?

The only worry with this is the sector - you have a number of TPIs who have passed on contracts to smaller providers that have been overstated. These YPIs are now being found out and some of the smaller providers have gone under.

Oh, OK then try MCL. Forecast to grow at about 15%. Bit late as it was dragged down with the market to 140p and is now back at a sensible level, with the forecast at 13.7p earnings. That's where my INSE money went when I sold, when INSE did not respond to 'good' results, despite being before the latest market drops. (It looks very much in retrospect that the 16p placing might have been known about for a long time, which might have stopped any rise on the good results - that's another reason I won't be buying back in). Or SSY. 'Pure' businesses, with none of the bogus excitement caused by acquisitions which in most cases doesn't lead to nice jumps in earnings. Except with IDEA, but I sold out there after a load of acquisitions and a p/e that was up with events and a gradual increase in intangible adjustments, but nothing like the effect on reported statutory eps that INSE has had. In my book if a business making acquisitions doesn't grow earnings at more than 5-10% pretty soon afterwards, then the actual business is not that great and the acquisitions are more of a growing scale 'ego' thing for the board, than actually about profits growth that will benefit shareholders. Fine for a dividend stock of course though. Depends what you want the stock for in the end.

winnings1 I'm not going to do your work for you, but I suggest you look for companies where the p/e is 10 ish, where they are growing profits at 10%, where the results are not adjusted significantly by intangibles and where they've just invested in expansion with a view to future growth. btw I don't mean acquiring other companies by issuing shares. ie. they're growing at 10% with future growth likely as a result of investment, not growing at 5% with a need to get to 10% just to justify the rating.

I've bought into these recently - I like the fact that they appear to be in a growing market, have management shareholders and are acquisitive.

So why did they have to issue all those shares at 16p, rather than higher up ? Also, you're quoting historic growth which imo was in the price previously near its highs, as investors looked ahead. If you look ahead now and say for instance its 10% growth instead of 5%, why would it be on anything other than a p/e of around 10 ? So which way do you look, you can't look both back and ahead to create a valuation that suits your argument.

The current year P/E is about to become 9.2. The divi yield is now around 4%, so it's actually a very good yield at this share price for new buyers. EPS has risen from 1.27p in 2016 to 1.64p this year (as forecast). By whatever measure, 30% EPS growth in 2 years is pretty impressive. The new acquisition is stated to be earnings-enhancing this coming year. It's likely that Peel Hunt's forecast for 2019 is deliberately conservative given the quoted "cross-selling opportunities", economies of scale, internal synergies etc laid out in the acquisition RNS. INSE will never be on a P/E of 25 like the go-go stocks. On the other hand, there are still not that many small cap stocks around on the above combination of attractive metrics which HAVEN'T issued profit warnings. Or have announced only 3 weeks ago that "The Board remains confident in meeting full year market expectations".

winnings1 Its about what other stocks you could be in though isn't it ? This is forecast to grow at 5% and its on a p/e of about 10, which wouldn't matter if it was a large income stock. There are other stocks growing at 10%+, dropped to p/e's of 10 because of the dire market. There are certainly stocks whose profits jump around, but that's not really an argument for this one.

Further to yesterday's approval of the Inprova acquisition, Peel Hunt have today reiterated their Buy and 25p target price: Http://investing.thisismoney.co.uk/broker-views/index/date/28-12-2018 The forecast for the year about to start remains 1.72p EPS with a 0.65p dividend (a 4.1% yield) per WebFG.

PE-ratio is low, the shares are cheap, EPS need not rise fast, better gradual annual profit rises than big leaps followed by big losses as we see too often elsewhere. Steady as she goes is to be respected, not to be sneered at. Certainly good enough for me.

So is that a positive ? Would you buy in if you looked at it fresh ? 5% forecast eps growth. Or is it an income stock now ? Under what circumstances is it likely to be re-rated ?

In the current global markets turmoil, INSE is one of the safest stocks to be invested in, the share price will come up again as the earnings and dividends keep on rising. IMO.

INSE are this fund manager's tip of the year for 2019: Https://www.yourmoney.com/investing/the-stocks-tipped-for-success-in-2019/ "Ken Wotton, manager of the LF Gresham House Multi Cap Income fund, notes that Brexit is likely to cause further volatility in the UK market. Nevertheless, investors must remember that this will create selective opportunities. “While large-cap businesses are generally impacted by macro factors, the agility and niche positioning of smaller companies may allow them to react positively to broader economic headwinds,” he said. He believes Inspired Energy, which provides energy advisory services, is poised for strong performance in 2019. “While it advises mid-sized corporations, Inspired Energy is paid in commission from contracts with large energy suppliers, with payments based on the energy usage companies incur. This guarantees multi-year revenue and high earnings visibility for the business,” Wotton said."

For the record, consensus forecasts now appear to be as follows after the acquisition and placing (I assume a combination of Shore Capital and Peel Hunt): year to 31/12/18: 1.64p EPS, 0.58p dividend year to 31/12/19: 1.72p EPS, 0.65p dividend So the year about to start sees a P/E of 9.7 and a 3.9% dividend yield.
