turnerpa51: I’ve been buying too, although share price seems to ease each time I purchase!
rivaldo: Canaccord have 1.63p historic EPS for last year and Panmure have 1.5p EPS. For this year Canaccord have 1.82p EPS, and Panmure 1.8p EPS, rising to 2p EPS next year. Peel Hunt are the outliers, with historic 1.24p EPS and 1.48p EPS this year. I haven't got their research and tend to dismiss this as out of date - INSE made 0.78p EPS in H1 alone. Given 1.8p EPS for this year (2018) a 21.5p share price is extremely good value on a P/E of only 11.9. Worth noting that the Corporate Order Book at £39m is down slightly from the end of H1 position. It's still hugely up from 12/16 and is broadly consistent, so it's perhaps a timing thing rather than anything else.
yump: Its on a sort of middling rating - I've got 1.2eps this year and 1.5eps next year. Potential for some decent share price movement once the focus moves to next year I think. Depends on the perceived quality of the business and earnings, which seem to be improving all the time. Given the pencilled in growth, a p/e of 20 wouldn't be over the top.
1gw: I think you can look at that 2 ways. Simon Clayton dumped his last lot of shares pretty much as soon as the lock-in provision ended didn't he? So you can read this as SC still not being interested in holding INSE shares at the current price. And the board probably didn't want to create an overhang so it was mutually attractive to buy him out. Effectively they've agreed to do a share buyback at the current price, rather than risk SC trying to sell immediately and take the share price down with him. So I agree good news for shareholders, but principally because it avoids the creation of an overhang.
rivaldo: Peel Hunt have reiterated their Buy and 25p target, and Panmure Gordon similarly with their Buy and 23p target. The latter conclude as follows (with the P/E's based on a higher 19.3p share price): "Valuation: after a strong run, the shares of both INSE and UTW have come off this month, leaving INSE with 19% upside to our fair value level. The shares currently trade on an undemanding PE of only 10.7x (Dec’18) falling to 9.6x (Dec’19) for 20%+ expected top line growth on 35%+ margins. We expect upgrades to consensus earnings forecast in due course, and remind investors that the recent move into the large and ripe Irish market affords the possibility for incremental good news on new business. Buy."
rhubarbcrumble: I wonder how far the share price has been undermined by Corbyn's rhetoric. If electricity were to be re-nationalised, iI cannot think that there would be much room for INSE and even TEP would be undermined, although they have other strings to their bow, albeit perhaps also affected by political considerations.
rivaldo: The manager of the FP Octopus UK Micro Cap Growth fund believes INSE is a "hidden gem". If extrapolating from his suggested £20m+ PBT INSE makes say £17m PAT in the future, that would suggest a £238m m/cap on his P/E of 14 - more than double the current m/cap: Https:// "Inspired Energy First up is Inspired Energy, which was founded at the turn of the millennium and floated onto the Alternative Investment Market (AIM) market in 2011. It provides consultancy for commercial and industrial clients who are looking to reduce energy costs and usage. Since its IPO, the stock has outperformed its FTSE AIM All-Share index by almost eight time with gains of 457.03 per cent. "Inspired Energy did a placing in June this year of 14.5p to raise money to acquire a competitor in Ireland," Power explained. "We started investing in this company in our EIS [Enterprise Investment Scheme] portfolios about seven years ago when the company was making a profit of £1m. Today it's making profit of £10m and, with this Irish acquisition, that will jump to £14m so it will be very earnings-enhancing for them. "With a £75m market cap it's just under the radar of the bigger small-cap investors so, on the back of this acquisition they've completed and some share price appreciation following the acquisition, we expect it to appear on the radar screen and re-rate to nearer 12x or 14x earnings. "We think you will see this company continue to make acquisitions and to do well. We think it will make profits north of £20m over the next few years."
rivaldo: Panmure called the share price post-results "curious", and they were "baffled" by the 20% discount to the wider market when the share price was 16.6p. They put this down to (1) the slower organic growth in the last H2, which they expect to snap back this year, (2) acquisitions causing a rise in gearing, which is expected to now fall rapidly, (3) the management's placing of shares and (4) the very poor performance by peer UTW, which "fails to recognize the fundamental difference between the two companies’ different models". I appreciate the prior debate about dep'n/amortisation etc, but feel the combination of the above are much the more likely to be behind the current stagnation. I suppose one shouldn't be surprised about a hiatus since the share price rose nicely from 13p or so. The AGM is in less than 2 weeks, and interims are only 2 months away in August.
rivaldo: INSE have been tipped by T.M.F - and it's even cheaper than they say when you consider Panmure's forecast of 1.45p EPS for this year, rather than Shore Capital's 1.3p EPS which they seem to have based their numbers on: Http:// "2 stocks with 25% immediate upside potential By The Motley Fool Feb 1, 2017 Soft drinks supplier Britvic(LSE: BVIC) and energy procurement consultant Inspired Energy (LSE: INSE) delivered positive trading updates this week. Based on such good trading, I reckon there's around 25% immediate upside potential in each share price to get the valuations to a 'fair' level." "Meanwhile, AIM-listed Inspired Energy delivered an end-of-year trading update Monday trumpeting a 40% revenue gain, a 45% surge in earnings before interest, tax, depreciation and amortisation (EBITDA), and an order book that has swollen by 14% during 2016. The firm has grown both organically and by acquisition and chief executive, Janet Thornton said: "Inspired had a very strong 2016 in which the business delivered on its stated growth strategy... We continue to seek out attractive acquisitions and I am confident that 2017 will be another year of positive growth." "With its share price of 13.25p, Inspired Energy's P/E rating sits at just over 10 for 2017 and the dividend yield is projected to be 3.8% that year. Growth looks strong with analysts anticipating a surge in EPS of 19% during 2017." "Meanwhile, Inspired Energy's valuation seems conservative given the growth figures the firm keeps posting. What's a normal valuation? In my view, the market is being unfairly cautious on these two firms because both are trading well with apparently good prospects for further growth down the line. The median forecast P/E rating of all stocks with forward estimates for earnings runs around 14 on the London stock market. Re-rating to that level would see Inspired Energy put on more than 25%... ...If good trading continues and earnings keep increasing, we could easily see share price gains from here, and there's the comfort of a decent dividend in each case while we wait."
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.
