Johnny Bluelynn, good for you building up your holding in ITV.

I have many private messages thanking me for posting positively on ITV. I post on what I hear and what I know to be real. The odd post reminding investors that the share price has been a bargain for a long time and to stay long and buy if you can afford to.

I no longer post on the other thread due to the scorn and derision I get from resident looney Stansmith who along with this thread's know all ex City tea boy and Beano financial expert MatthewR regularly downplay ITV and pour scorn on my positive posts.

It's great that so many on this thread are sitting on ITV stakes at numbers way south of Friday's 83.15p close. I advised that volumes in ITV would be indicative of the stealthy accumulation by Silchester and others holding lesser stakes under 5%.

ITV will seem a gift very soon although those who filled their boots at 60p or even less are quids in already and that is great. While these were 53p and the journey to today, the bashers were calling me names I can't repeat, when we see this fly soon they will be crying in private as they see the smart guys make money..

Stay long and Buy!

Re: 8205. It's interesting that Silchester have increased their stake in ITV, possibly picking up stock alongside the ITV buyback. Are they beating ITV to the punch or should I say beating Morgan Stanley.

A bit about Silchester and it's close relationship to Morgan Stanley.

Silchester’s low-profile ethos extends to its senior staff. The company was set up in 1994 by British multi-millionaire Stephen Butt and other Morgan Stanley colleagues, including Michael Cowan and Bertrand Le Pan de Ligny.

Mr Butt, Mr Cowan and Timothy Linehan, an American, are listed as current directors and owners of Silchester Partners. The three are also heavily involved in SII, the original business, where they run money or oversee operations.

Chief investment officer Mr Butt rarely courts attention but his pay packet makes headlines: The Sunday Times has said he is one of the UK’s richest fund managers. In 2017, he received £34m in dividends from Silchester Partners, as well as additional cash from SII.

Mr Cowan, a fund manager, also keeps a low profile, although he is on the investment advisory committee of Churchill College, Cambridge, his alma mater. He told The Sunday Times last year that he and his family were “generally very private people” after donating £1m to build an opera house at West Horsley Place in the Surrey Hills.

Morgan Stanley are handling the ITV buyback as Silchester increase stake...I am not saying 'strange bedfellows' or suggesting anything but the timing does seem convenient for some!

The marketing and investor relations teams at ITV are abysmal. Their phones are probably all ex-directory.

tlobs..You're right, it's not good. A recent post on LSE about ITV doing much better than expected purported to come from someone employed at ITV marketing. If that turns out to be the case next month, why can't they tell the market now.

Other companies issue up to date statements all the time. The new guy at RR Tufan Erginbilgic informs shareholders almost weekly about the fortunes of RR. Having said that RR is a rocket and hard to believe was around 80p the same as ITV in March 2022 when McCall had her Liz Truss moment.

RR today 450p, ITV still down at a lowly 81p, the share price performance like the investor relations team is abysmal.

Position update!

Since my 22 Dec 2023 post on LSE, I have continued to add and now hold > 1m ITV shares, average in the low 60s. Unrealised profit is £200k+. Annual dividends are £50k+ (nice!)

Obviously I am really pleased where the price is 6 months later, however I see no reason to sell, and will continue compounding my position size by adding monthly and reinvesting all dividends... roll on 25 July interim results and the 1.7p dividend announcement (or more please!) ;)

ITV’s valuation case (Updated!)

In November 2022 Investors Chronicle published a great article by financial writer Jemma Slingo - that quoted calculations by “Thomas Singlehurst, head of European media equity research at Citigroup”.

It was the first time I had learned that the sum of ITVs parts might be greater than the ITV Group valuation, based on the full year results 2022.

So now the full year results 2023 are available I thought it would be interesting to try and recreate the calculation and see if it still stands up.

There are a couple of caveats to this.

Firstly an EV Factor Benchmark of 13.8 was used based on FL Entertainment at the time. Looking for the current EV Factor for FL / Banijay throws up a range of numbers around 12/13 or so (I’m sure Thomas has access to much better data than we do!) - so I’m just going to stick with the prior number for a simple comparison.

Secondly the calculation mentions ‘subtracting the relevant debt’ which is unclear however it looks like 623m was deducted which coincidentally was the 2022 net debt - but for the whole ITV Group not just ITV Studios - so again for a simple comparison I will use the net debt figure in the 2023 results of 553m.

Ok so now it’s just a simple calculation. In the first row of the image linked below I show the method to arrive at the original articles 74p value for ITV Studios.

And in the second row using 2023 results we get 85p.

So, caveats aside, in summary I think the original articles premise still holds:

“The conglomerate discount is now so acute at ITV that you don’t just get the broadcast business for free – you actually get it at a negative value,” argued Thomas Singlehurst.

Back to ITV? Posted by robs60 on the LSE site earlier today.

“… my inside info is that she is about to confound all of her critics with an update that is going to put at least 10% on ITV.”

“ I have it on authority from someone working in marketing at ITV, that the current situation is far better than what they expected. Although Mr Bates was not itself a moneyspinner it got so much publicity advertisers came to ITV earlier than contemplated. I will enlarge by saying advertising has not been down as much as expected and has been flowing back and showing an upturn that will show in the interim on July 25th.”

What it does: ITV is the UK’s largest commercial broadcaster and operates a vast global production division.

By Royston Wild. ITV’s (LSE:ITV) share price has been under sustained pressure as weak advertising revenues have smacked profits. The former FTSE 100 broadcaster is down 7% over the past year, meaning over the last five years it has lost a whopping 45% of its value.

As a result, the company now trades on a rock-bottom forward price-to-earnings (P/E) ratio of 8.5 times. This is bound to attract the attention of a number of suitors.

The jewel in ITV’s crown is its sprawling production arm. ITV Studios — which is home to global hits like Love Island and The Voice — now accounts for 51% of group revenues.

And sales here are growing ahead of the market, up 4% to record levels in 2023. In an age when streaming companies are crying out for new content, ITV’s production prowess could make it a hot takeover target. Might the likes of Netflix or Amazon soon come calling?

Royston Wild does not own shares in any of the shares mentioned.

I like finding interviews with senior ITV people - they often say some very interesting things. Here’s a good one from just a few days ago worth a weekend listen, including some comments on “What's in store for ITV Studios for the second half of 2024”:

“30-May-2024 - Graham Haigh, EVP, Global Digital Partnerships at ITV Studios … examines ITV's digital distribution growth strategies across the social media and free tv world, including YouTube, AVOD and FAST, emphasising the importance of data utilisation for content strategies, as well as diving into the challenges and opportunities of content monetisation in an ever-fragmented content market.”

This is a very good sign:

One of the many ITV Studios production assets reports profits DOUBLE.

“World Productions … doubled its profit in 2023 thanks to deals with Netflix and the BBC. The business is one of around 50 subsidiaries of ITV Studios which is part of the wider ITV group.”

… and yet another production asset reporting rising revenue:

“Mainstreet Pictures … the television studio owned by ITV behind the latest series of popular detective drama Unforgotten enjoyed a bumper 2023 with its revenue rising to its highest level for eight years.”

On 03/03/2022 ITV crashed on news of investment required in ITVX, taking it down from 110p... (1st blue ellipse in chart below)

Here is a 7 year weekly chart back to early 2017 - showing a wedge that is interesting as it includes not just the COVID related fall but also the big daily range on that fateful day - projected forward using a pink box. Price has barely explored this area again apart from a brief foray in 2023.

You can clearly see that ITVs price has been stuck in this falling wedge with a few contact points (green circles), supported by four resistance areas under 60p.

Personally I think that once we re-enter the pink area which has had little price discovery - ITV will take off through this range (2nd blue ellipse) and beyond...!

Price has already managed to break out of the wedge on the far right - and has been building a base ready for entry into the pink area above...
