jtcod: Some of the value out there right now in 'quality' companies is staggering. Not naming names so please don't bother guessing but just by way of example, one cash positive company could buy its own shares back and get a '50% annual free cash flow return' (that is based upon their average free cash flow for the last 5 years) and that's after a bounce in the share price too! It begs the question how cheap does a company need to be in this chaos before a competitor would have the guts to launch a bid? Of course earnings could well be affected by the virus situation and possibly will but in the zero interest times you would expect such metrics to be the preserve of companies close to collapse or at least mired in debt. Neither is the case here and they are not unique either. Crazy times indeed.
jtcod: I think it's interesting what the FCA are doing and to be applauded really. They have been contacting all firms that are due to report and asking them to postpone until they get a better picture of their position. Executives normally have an instinct to protect the share price with one eye on options. You can imagine the implications of announcing a dividend for instance, only to find you can't pay it come the day.
jtcod: Share price down 82% since January
lefrene: JTC, I noticed in Trumps speech last night that airlines and cruise companies were to be helped out. Yes a lot of that QE money has gone to companies that used the money to buy back shares to boost the share price, just so that big bonuses based on company share price could kick in! How very very convenient that we now have a global 'pan-demic' that provides the perfect excuse to do whatever you like, to bail out the mess!!
jingle bells: Eqtec (EQT) Possible 10x bagger this year: Align Research 2/1/2020 EQT end 2020 share price target 1.631p, 'some nine times the current price of 0.18p', 'Conviction Buy' hTTp://
cpap man: UOG BROKER NOTE United Oil & Gas - (LSE:UOG) - Egypt Update Please find attached an update note on United Oil & Gas, following today’s announcement on the ASH-2 well. Since the beginning of January 2020, the ASH-2 well on the Abu Sennan concession onshore Egypt has been producing over 3,000 bopd (660 bopd net to United’s 22% interest) on a consistent basis through a half-inch choke. This has exceeded pre-drill expectations significantly and represents very good news for United. Going forward, the operator will monitor the well closely over the coming months in order to manage the reservoir and optimise production volumes from the ASH field development over the longer term. We have increased our valuation of United’s interest in Abu Sennan to $35m from US$29m on a risked basis as a function of higher than expected initial production from ASH-2 and an upgraded aggregate production profile for Abu Sennan going forward. At a per share valuation of 4.3p for United’s interest in Abu Sennan, the company’s current market capitalisation is covered by Egypt alone. However, with the balance of United’s portfolio lifting the value of the company to 10.4p per share on a fully risked basis, we believe that there is significant upside in the current share price. Indeed, our unrisked assessment of the current value of United exceeds 32p per share suggesting that future exploration success in Jamaica and Italy would be transformational for United’s potential valuation.

henryatkin: Aleman...US stock buy backs are now at levels not seen since 2000 & 2007, yet the buy back companies index is lagging the S&P 500 year to date. At the same time ROI on buybacks has steadily diminished over the past five years. To my mind we eventually reach a point in market timing where buybacks are the only buyers in town. edited. I didn't realise it was a subscription page> Full text U.S. companies are buying back record amounts of stock this year, but their shares aren't getting the boost they bargained for. S&P 500 companies are on track to repurchase as much as $800 billion in stock this year, a record that would eclipse 2007's buyback bonanza. Among the biggest buyers are companies like Oracle Corp. , Bank of America Corp. and JPMorgan Chase & Co. But 57% of the more than 350 companies in the S&P 500 that bought back shares so far this year are trailing the index's 3.2% increase. That is the highest percentage of companies to fall short of the benchmark's gain since the onset of the financial crisis in 2008, according to a Wall Street Journal analysis of share buyback and performance data from FactSet. And the historic spending spree on share buybacks has some analysts worried companies are buying their shares at excessive valuations during the peak of the economic cycle and at a time when the market rally is nine years old. Others warn the billions of dollars spent to buy back shares could have gone toward capital improvements like new factories or technology that could lead to stronger long-term growth. "There has been less of a reward for companies engaging in new buybacks over the last 18 months," said Kate Moore , chief equity strategist and a managing director at asset-management firm BlackRock Inc. "It's fair for investors to ask whether companies are buying at the right point." The S&P 500 Buyback index, which tracks the share performance of the 100 biggest stock repurchasers, has gained just 1.3% this year, well underperforming the S&P 500. Share buybacks have become corporate America's go-to strategy for boosting stock prices and earnings over the past 30 years. The point of buybacks is to try to make a company's stock more valuable. By mopping up shares, a company shrinks the stock pie, which boosts earnings per share. That, in turn, should push the share price higher. The potential problem: Executives directing buybacks are essentially timing the market, and often they end up buying high. Buyback activity reached a frenzy in the early 2000s; the previous record for share repurchases was $589.1 billion in 2007. But that was just a year before the stock market tumbled into the worst financial crisis since the Great Depression. The result: companies like Exxon Mobil Corp. , Microsoft Corp. and International Business Machine Corp. each paid more than $18 billion to repurchase stock at a peak, only to see their share prices slump a year later. Stock buybacks appear just as ill-timed now, some analysts and investors say, especially as companies ramp up spending after last year's $1.5 trillion tax overhaul put extra cash in their coffers. Oracle has been one of the biggest buyers of its own stock in recent years and spent $11.8 billion on stock repurchases last year, when shares gained nearly 23%. But that gamble hasn't looked smart this year as the networking- device maker has struggled alongside the broader market, pulling its shares down 6%. Still, Oracle's board approved a fresh round of share buybacks totaling $12 billion in February, and executives appear to have spent nearly half that sum already. A representative from Oracle declined to comment on its share buyback program, but the company said in a recent Securities and Exchange Commission filing that it "cannot guarantee" its share repurchase "will enhance long-term stockholder value." Others like McDonald's Corp. , Bank of America and JPMorgan Chase have spent billions on share repurchases this year, but haven't seen a short-term bounce in share prices. McDonald's bought back $1.6 billion of shares in the first quarter, but the fast-food chain's stock is down 7.4% this year. Bank of America and JPMorgan Chase have both spent more than $4.5 billion to buy back their shares, which are down 5% and 2.7%, respectively. All three companies also spent multibillion-dollar sums on buybacks in 2017 as the stock market hit repeated highs. Companies in the S&P 500 that have repurchased shares are expected to see a return on investment of about 6.4% this year, a percentage that falls below the past six rolling five-year periods as measured by Fortuna Advisors , a financial consulting firm that has examined buyback trends going back to 2007. Returns on investment for buybacks peaked in 2013, according to Fortuna's analysis, as companies used share repurchases to boost earnings and dig themselves out of the depths of the financial crisis. With stock prices relatively low at the time and economic activity tepid, share buybacks were one of companies' key sources of earnings growth. But even as the stock market steadied in the subsequent years and economic growth around the world picked up to help boost profits, corporate executives continued to spend wildly on share repurchases -- often at the expense of other types of spending, including dividends and capital improvements. Spending on capital expenditures rose to $166 billion in the first quarter, up 24% from a year earlier, according to Credit Suisse , but still well below the $189 billion spent on buybacks. "The majority of capital deployed is going right back to shareholders and not reinvestment in businesses," said Gregory Milano , chief executive at Fortuna. "If that's the only thing you're relying on, it's going to end badly." Some share buybacks do pay off, but that tends to be among companies that show a high level of sales and earnings growth on their own, analysts say. Apple Inc. , for example, has bought back $22.8 billion worth of stock so far this year. Its shares have risen 11%, with much of the boost coming after it reported strong gains in second-fiscal-quarter revenue and profit -- as well as a record $100 billion plan to buy back more stock. "Corporate America has such an obsession with bottom-line growth," said Jay Bowen , president of Bowen Hanes & Co. , manager of the $2 billion Tampa Firefighters and Police Officers Pension Fund . "Long term, I don't like it." Write to Michael Wursthorn at (END) Dow Jones Newswires 07-08-18 0900ET Copyright (c) 2018 Dow Jones & Company, Inc.
