saucepan: Thanks for the considered response, cfro; appreciated. I agree with much of what you say, and these current new platforms would certainly not be for me either. There is indeed a strong case to be be made that they are not a credible alternative for serious investors. However, I think a point still stands that they are a sign of tectonic change already now occurring in the industry. Competition will only increase further. Margins are likely to be eroded and the dominance of the current players challenged. Hargreaves Lansdown, for example, has a very slick mobile dealing app. I personally find I use it ever increasingly for trading, rather than through a web browser on my laptop. IG's mobile app is fantastic, too. I am sure that is the way stock market trading is going even if many "oldies" don't adapt that way. Then look at Jarvis, and consider its limited and antiquated online trading platform that has not moved with the times in years. Jarvis is in danger of becoming a dinosaur. It doesn't strike me as an innovator and I wonder how much it has invested and is investing in R&D that will lead to a product attractive to younger generations. After all, oldies die out and need to be replaced. What may also happen at some point, of course, is that Jarvis might get taken over by a predator as the market evolves further. Existing shareholders might do well out of this, but it is arguably not a strong enough reason to invest or stay invested. Last but not least, I was not wishing to argue that the Jarvis share price will not continue to appreciate. I personally took the view that it has had a very good run of late, and may be due a pause for breath. Additionally, however, and taking into account the concerns raised I also feel there are better market and sector opportunities to grow my portfolio with more constructive chart setups and a more favourable wind to propel them. I continue to watch here with interest. If I see share price action to convince me differently, I won't hesitate to reinvest.
maddox: Trident you state: "There is apparently evidence that prices tend to rise after a split, but no evidence that the split is the cause; more likely that companies split their shares when they are doing well." Yes precisely, the firm does well the share price goes up - it then looks expensive - it splits - and is apparently a better price. It's a well known phenomenon Traders such as Robbie Burns the Naked Trader buys into splits 'because it works'. And because its a known phenomenon other do the same thing - it becomes a self-fulfilling prediction. Evidence? Well I can no more prove I'm right than you can prove that I'm wrong.
squeamish1: Seems like a pointless re-papering exercise to me but whatever. I’m holding AZN at £80 a share and FLTR at £130 and don’t really give a flying one at the nominal value of a single share - although at those levels it does mean your average punter loses the ability to DRIP properly. In FLTR for example you have to hold over £20k worth for the interim divi to buy you one more share. So perhaps there is a minor argument for it being accretive to share price and liquidity on that basis. I’d love to see the spread come down on JIM, won’t lie about that.
maddox: I don't get the impression that JIM are spendthrift. If the share price rises and we get greater liquidity - it will count as a success in my book - logical or not.
melton john: Perception = reality to some Trident5. To the younger less experienced investor a £7.50 share price hasn't much upside and a long way to fall. I don't see it this way either but have a look at the top risers page, only a quarter of those on the list have a share price above a pound. What do new investors looking for a flutter make of that? I would rather they put their money in something worthwhile like JIM than a hole in the ground.
melton john: Investor psychology is weird trident5. I own plenty of these but I don't get many for my money when the drip comes around, that's a fact. That doesn't bother me, but I still remember the days of owning a million shares in a company and when I think about paying £20 or £80 for one share I feel giddy. The Exchange Market Size of 500 shares is something that needs to change to improve liquidity, that's for sure. and I don't mean just pro-rata to 2000. HL. EMS is 1000 and current share price nearly £15 so EMS is £15000, Jim in cash terms is about a quarter of that at share price of £7.50. This has to change.
trident5: The reorganisation is a 4 for 1 share split and is being done "to make the Company's shares more accessible to smaller investors by reducing the average share price by a factor of four and should therefore improve the liquidity of the market in the Company's shares". Presumably they become more attractive to those small investors who currently can't afford to buy one share for £7.50, but henceforth if they have a spare fiver they'll be able to buy one or two. BS.
maddox: Hi Greg, You think that's good. At 745p last close on a p/e 14.5 yld 5.3%. If JIM was on the same valuation as AJ Bell AJB p/e 53.3 yld 1.36% then the share price would be 2739p and 2810p respectively! The 14p interim dividend is awarded (x-Div) today so the share price is expected to come-off. JIM is run like a family owned business - a highly attractive characteristic, conservatively managed, tight cost control. I really like a firm that pays a quarterly dividend - it speaks powerfully of alignment with shareholders. The interim dividends are a tangible way of signalling to shareholders the current and future trading conditions. Today's 14p is a significant 115% uplift on the 6.5p paid this time last year - I really like non-verbal communication. Regards Maddox
maddox: Hi steelwatch, Good to see JIM re-rating - it was looking ridiculously cheap. At 730p last close they still look good value on p/e 14.2 yld 5.23%. If JIM was on the same valuation metrics as Hargreves Lansdown p/e 35 and 2.2% yld then the share price would be 1780p and 1735p respectively. Regards Maddox
maddox: Hi CWA, ST doesn't say anything we don't already know - revenue is up from a large rise in transaction revenue and that operational gearing has driven forward the profit. He reports that WHIreland are upgrading FY forecasts rev by 13% to £13.2m and pre-tax profit by 23% to £6.8m such that expected EPS to rise to 50p, up 40%. Divs expected to rise 25% for year. Share price target up to 700p. ST thinks that still good value at current price with a forward p/e of 13 and yield of 5.7%. He then congratulates himself for his previous tips - which is fair enough. Couple of points I'd add is that JIM is benefiting from market volatility and will thus likely benefit from further turbulence in the wake of Covid - a useful hedge characteristic. JIM's growing dividend, paid quarterly, has got to be attractive to income seekers at this rate especially with so many firms suspending payment. A re-rating is warranted.
