illiswilgig: Well. With the share price up over 1800p again today, this board seems resolutely determinded not to take note of the recent strength. Another 6 weeks or so to the interims, but with the period end of June the board likely already have a good view of their progress. The AGM statement at the start of May was quietly confident (the Co is not prone to unbounded optimism) 'Looking ahead, all four of our divisions appear well set with Marine Support and Offshore Oil leading the way. The Board therefore believes that the Group's outlook for the year is positive and that James Fisher continues to be well placed to provide further growth and value for shareholders. ' Quite a change to see 'Offshore Oil leading the way' and I rather suspect the recent share price strength is looking to interims above expectations by a tad, cheers
roddiemac2: illiswilgig, No expensive cars for me. I drive a short wheelbase Mercedes Sprinter van :bought new, now 15 years old. I converted it into a windowless camper ( sleeping capsule / very well insulated ). It beats driving a car ; I get a lovely view from the cab, and It is currently very useful carrying rubbish to the local dump. It got us down to France and Spain for the duration of last winter. I don`t bother about scratches , just the rust patches. I am tempted to buy a few more FSJ. At some point they are likely to do better .Like yourself, and forddrive over on shareprice, FSJ is my largest holding . bouleversee, The current share price may be a consequence of the mood in the market as a whole. There is no reason, that I know of, to believe there is bad news in the pipeline. Daily volume has tended to be low , and mostly made up of small trades. Yours, white van man
roddiemac2: bouleversee, I would not read too much into share price movements here. FSJ will get business from the the decommissioning of oil rigs. They are very unlikely to handle the complete job of decommissioning, but very likely to provide various specialist services.
illiswilgig: Sorry I was being a little tongue-in-cheek hence the :-) I pay no (or very little) attention to short term movements in share price. I learnt many years ago that I am not a trader, speculator or gambler. I invest in companies where I see good long term value and then wait. As Warren Buffett supposedly said, my favourite holding period is - forever. I am taking more of an interest in Fisher at the moment because it has not returned to the >10% growth in profits each year I anticipated. Either the forecasts are wrong or I am wrong and I'm keen to find out which!
roddiemac2: There is absolutely no comparison to be made between FSJ and RPC. It is daft to do so. FSJ is what I call an umbrella organisation . Many of the areas they operate in are in the early stages of development; companies acquired are often small, being themselves in the early stages of development. FSJ is effectively a nursery for the companies acquired. What was the share price of FSJ when you last sold ?
illiswilgig: what is the answer to my question? have I understood? Phillis - the answer to your question is - No. Have you understood? I'm not sure that you have? Probably not I'd say. Note 4 should help you there. Also note 4 from the previous 2015 results will help with respect to 'Adjustment to provision for contingent consideration'. There is also a helpful table in the Financial Review which shows how the effects of acquisitions, changing exchange rates and the lost contract affect both revenues and profits in 2016 compared with 2015. Mind you. I suspect it won't help you find the company any more attractive at the current share price! cheers
illiswilgig: I am very impressed by the way that FSJ management have continued to execute their growth plan and take advantage of opportunities to buy high quality small companies and assets where this fits into the companies specialised niche markets. I think that they are laying a solid foundation for future growth. Whilst the past may have been about Oil support and servies I think the future will be as much about renewable energy technology and infrastructure and while we maybe dithering over the new build of large nuclear plants the vast amount of work needed to clean up the old ones just keeps growing. Although FSJ is my largest holding by far I will continue to add if the share price dips significantly, cheers
roddiemac2: emerald, I never say where I think a share price will be at a specific point in the future ( many a slip twixt cup and lip ), but years ago I told other local investors that FSJ was likely to make £ 20 at some point , if they continue to execute their strategy as they have done in the past. When the shares declined to around 950p on misplaced fears about their dependence on oil, it was clear that many investors did not understand the potential here. Coupled with that, there is a prevalence of short term thinking amongst investors today. bear in mind that interim results will be down on the comparable period last year. However the next six months is likely to be very different.
rivaldo: FSJ's share price is performing amazingly well post-Brexit. Any opinions on why - perhaps to do with all those foreign earnings being worth more in sterling now? Must admit I haven't looked yet to see how hedged (or not) FSJ are.
illiswilgig: I don't see the share price going far in either direction right at the moment - in absence of further news. This is one where I take no news as good news. I've taken another look at the earnings forecasts. The recent results anticipated h2 earnings to be 'slightly' below last years - so certainly a profit warning in the sense that this years profits will be lower than last years. But the current brokers consensus looks like an over reaction to me. With 30p in H1 and last years H2 of 49.2p 'slightly' below would mean something like 45p - lower and it would be 'significantly' below? That would put this FY on 75p. Current broker consensus is 66.7p - which would imply 36.7p eps in H2 - that seems a lot more than slightly below 49.2p? But that could just be blind optimism on my part so I looed at the perfomance of each division. My own estimate of earnings in each division for H2, with growth in tankships, specialised technical and marine support 'returning to growth' and offshore oil stabilised is 42p in H2 and FY of 72p which is just in at the upper end of the range that Rivaldo quotes. That puts FSJ on a P/E of 15.3 at the current price more if you take the lower end of the forecast P/E. It's somewhat expensive if you view it a specialist technical services company with a large exposure to oil. But the management team has a proven record of steering the company into higher margin niches in growing areas and exiting less profitable areas. I think the perception of the company as heavily exposed to oil is wrong and creates an overly negative view of the companies prospects which will keep the share price depressed in the short term. Offshore oil now accounts for only around 20% of profits likely in h2 - though this could recover swiftly with an upturn in maintenance and support work. Meanwhile the company is a leader in it's niche areas and has been taking the opportunity to buy assets at good value in the recent downturn. With 3 divisions growing, acquisitions in technical services and marine support I can see a small upwards rerating possible with estimates rising for FY 2016 I doubt it will happen in the short term, but with announcements on major contracts possible it's hard to time - and I'm useless at timing anyway so I'm happy to hold, including the ones I bought recently at below 1000p, and await the return to growth, disclosure - clearly I am bullish on FSJ! I have been for 10 years or more...... cheers
