rivaldo: When the share price reached 25p it fell back when an institutional seller dripped out stock over time to take profits, when at the time the resulting share price fall seemed overdone/unexplained. I suspect that there is again a seller (or sellers) out there whose position is (for them) relatively small and which they simply want to get out of.
rivaldo: Tipped here: Https:// "Here, I’ll look at whether it could now be the buy of the century. And whether ambitious energy consultancy Inspired Energy (LSE: INSE), which released its annual results today, could also offer rich pickings for investors. Growth at an attractive price Inspired supports its clients with their energy needs, including selecting the best supply contracts, validating energy invoices, meeting compliance obligations on energy and environmental reporting, and increasing effectiveness of energy consumption. In short, “optimising the value of every pound our clients spend on utilities, so that they can focus on running their businesses.” The company today reported record revenue, with its large corporate division contributing 84% and its SME division 16%. Total revenue of £32.7m was up 24% on the prior year, helped by five strategic acquisitions. Meanwhile, pre-tax profit increased 35% and earnings per share (EPS) by 26%. Inspired has become a leading procurement consultant to UK and Irish corporates. And in a highly fragmented market, it has considerable scope for further strong acquisitive and organic growth. I see good potential for it to become a significantly more valuable company than its current market value of £131m. The shares opened 6% higher at 18.38p this morning, and with EPS of 1.68p, the price-to-earnings (P/E) ratio is 10.9. I reckon this is an attractive valuation, and that a 0.65p dividend (up 18%), giving a yield of 3.7%, adds to the investment appeal. As such, I rate the stock a ‘buy’."
rivaldo: Despite the excellent year end update, the share price has been marking time/drifting whilst I've been away on hols. Results are on 27th March, so not long to go. Consensus is 1.57p EPS, with a 0.6p dividend. Forecasts for this year are 1.8p EPS, with a 0.7p dividend. Found this in Liontrust UK Microcap Fund's Dec'18 investment letter for the record: "A share placing contributed to a monthly share price fall for Inspired Energy (-23.4%). The company is an energy procurement consultancy firm that in the managers’ view possesses core Economic Advantage assets through its high recurring revenues and embedded distribution strengths. In December, a share placing of £19m helped fund the acquisition of Inprova Finance, a company that offers similar services with particular strengths in data centres, social housing, education and construction. The acquisition is expected to generate substantial cross-selling opportunities."
winnings1: Share price is currently undeservedly low. Will recover, 25p target is realistic.
rivaldo: 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: 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.
buoycat: Clearly news of the placing leaked to cause the dramatic share price fall prior to the announcement. It was clear something was afoot. Thankfully not bad news.
owenski: The share price has certainly been 'adjusted'.
rivaldo: :o)) That explains a lot about the share price performance since April or so.... I wonder if INSE had pressed the button a touch earlier, would they have been able to raise at 20p or more? Did this week's market falls, with exaggerated declines given no buyers around, cause the share price fall and the discounted price? Or did the tail of the "known-about" placing wag the share price dog? Pure guesswork. Anyway, the acquisition is a good one at a decent price. Interesting to see the effect on forecasts. The forecast for the coming year was already 1.7p EPS. I haven't done the calculations, but hopefully this could now increase to say 1.9p-2p EPS or even more. Which leaves a 16.85p share price looking pretty cheap.
melody9999: I think INSE points up the opportunities and the challenges of investing in small cap penny shares. Since 2011 INSE has consistently grown revenue and profitability each year. They have an established and stable management team. They operate in a stable long term business environment with recurring revenues where it is recognised that over the longer term, energy prices will increase. Therefore to the commercial businesses that are INSE's customers, managing this element of their cost will become increasingly important In the meantime the INSE share price has varied between 17p and 9p in the last year! Whilst INSE trading has remained strong (and reported by the company as such).....with forecast increases in revenue and earnings .... until today the share price had fallen by as much as 50% Some investors have speculated that the short term fall in energy prices will mean the end for UTW and INSE. That view has percolated into the market. The reality is that good well managed successful companies tend to continue to be good well managed successful companies. And short of some fundamental change in the energy market, companies such as INSE will continue to be successful. So well done to Janet and the team as usual please for the foreseeable and rest assured that INSE remain one of my largest investments.
