mount teide: Remember watching a Channel 4 TV interview Morgan Kelly gave at the height of the Irish property market lunacy - he said it was a major accident waiting to happen as 75% of Irish Bank lending was tied up in property and land speculation and totalled more than 2.5 times the size of the Irish Economy. Irish banks were almost entirely funded by deposits until 2000. In the next decade their business model was to borrow in the international wholesale markets and lend to property developers and house-buyers – it was Northern Rock on steroids until an international credit crunch came along and brought the whole thing crashing down. Politics and regulation instead of acting as a preventer acted as a catalyst as a result of the reckless behaviour of self serving politicians and banking sector management. Yet another huge financial disaster aided and abetted throughout by the big audit groups. The shenanigans at Anglo Irish 'Bank' probably best demonstrated the astonishing scale of the folly and breathtaking arrogance and corruption of its CEO - well reported on at the time by the FT: 'At the heart of the crisis was Anglo Irish Bank, the domain of Sean FitzPatrick, its chief executive for 18 years and chairman from 2005. FitzPatrick and Anglo streaked across the dull firmament of Irish banking like meteors, igniting a frenzied battle for size and market share. Between 1998 and 2008, Anglo’s loan book swelled from €3bn to €73bn. Almost all of this was to builders and property developers. Bertie Ahern, the Taoiseach who presided over the alchemical prolongation of the boom and hides his shrewdnesss behind a blokeish bonhomie and mangled syntax, saw it differently in 2006 when, as he put it, “the boom was getting more boomier”. Sean FitzPatrick, it would later transpire, used Irish Nationwide, the building society, to warehouse an undeclared personal loan from his own bank of €87m during the end-of-year reporting season – every year for eight years until it was detected in 2008. As the Anglo share price started to crumble and it and other banks started to haemorrhage deposits, another building society, Irish Life & Permanent, lent the bank €7.5bn to tide it over another sticky reporting season. This was presented in the accounts as part of Anglo’s customer deposit base. Anglo also lent money to a select group of 10, mainly builders, clients to buy stock in the bank and prop up its share price. This is a bank into which the government has already had to inject €14bn. Even after the nationalisation of Anglo Irish and the state’s rescue of its rivals through the establishment of a “ bad bank”, the National Asset Management Agency (Nama), to manage nearly €80bn in toxic property assets, some bankers’ purchase on reality was negligible. FitzPatrick, less than a week after Anglo was bailed out by the taxpayer, called for cuts in child and pensioner benefits. He and his peers were not operating in the penumbra, they were hiding in plain sight, protected by what Fintan O’Toole, The Irish Times columnist, has called “the Celtic informational twilight of things that are known but not known”. They have helped turn Ireland upside down. Twenty years ago, any Irish man or woman would be fluent in EU lore, from the number of scholarships available to the precise value of Brussels regional aid. Ten years ago they became encyclopaedic on property prices, and a storehouse of tips for buzzy holidays from Barcelona to Bangkok. Now, they enumerate toxic assets like a loss adjuster. “That building there, it’s just been Nama-ed,” said one resident, pointing to one of Dublin’s best-known hotels. As a barman in that same hotel had it: “We’re all economists now.” And as Yeats put it in a different context: “all changed, changed utterly”. '
tewkesbury: Audioboom (BOOM) Small cap company for podcast hosting and creation, makes money via adverts and subscriptions, revenues growing strongly and set to go cash flow positive on a monthly basis in early 2019. Current share price 2.5p, Allenby already said fair value 7.5p in Mar 2017, could return to 16p very quickly.
tewkesbury: Check out Reabold (RBD). Interests in 4 successful well workovers (just completed and put into production) plus 6 new wells to be drilled before Christmas (including one to spud this week) and one adjoining the prolific Wych Farm (Dorset) field. Now run by two ex M&G investment analysts who are focussing on share price gains rather than continual dilution. hTTps://
mount teide: As expected, with the Baltic Dry Index rising close to 50% since Q1/2018, the world's largest shipbroker Clarkson's has experienced a stronger Q2/2018 across most of its main shipbroking and sale&purchase markets. The oil tanker market although still the exception is now seeing green shoots, moving up strongly off multi year lows; vessel charter rates have increased by over 100% since the start of Q3/2018 which should bode well for H2/2018 and 2019. Likewise the oil services sector, also recently made a bottom and entered a new cyclical recovery phase following a brutal 5 year recession which brought the industry to its knees. Clarkson's highly expensive takeover of Platou some 3 years ago - a specialist oil tanker and oil services sector shipbroker - could not have been more badly judged/timed but, following an awful post acquisition period should now start to generate better news and results going forward. Oil tanker rates dropped over 10 fold peak to trough following Clarkson's takeover of Platou and the oil services sector completely collapsed, with large sections of many major fleets put in to long term lay-up. The Clarkson share-price which briefly dropped from £30 to below £20 following the profit warning in Q1/2018, has recovered strongly since, hitting £29 this morning following this morning's Interims With the shipping markets forecast to be close to a demand/supply balance for the first time in a decade in 2019, I'm maintaining my earlier call of a £100 Clarkson share price by 2023/25 as the shipping markets continue to strengthen into this new commodity cycle recovery stage, which like all previous recovery stages will come with the high stomach churning volatility these markets are renown for. The shipping and commodity markets may not be for the fainthearted, widows or orphans perhaps - but for those with the constitution to withstand the volatility, with careful stock selection the once in every 15-20 year recovery/boom stage of these long term, highly cyclical markets offer investors the opportunity of tremendous multi year outperformance compared to the wider market indexes.
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.
the stigologist: AOR When charts and fundamentals are in agreement with one another it's a recipe for explosive share price action
jtcod: Just looking at the SIV announcement this morning. SIV sold a print business for £9.5m cash consideration after costs. The business had £16m gross assets and £5.1m profit before tax. If one had simply retained that company to pay for all the company’s interest charges it would still leave £2m profit on top. This is a £150m market cap company. ............The share price has gone up! I can remember a time when that would have had shareholders in any company screaming for the heads of management. Perhaps in today’s times the value of cash is rising? Have edited out the relative % of earnings compared to SIV’s total profit before tax because of variances in Morningstar reporting and high level of exceptional items. SIV actually made a loss last year after those items
tewkesbury: Powerhouse Energy (PHE) possible 2000 bagger: englishlongbow 25 May '18 - 10:49 - 6554 of 6556 Keith Allaun says PHE could be a FTSE 100 company based on their UK rollout plans i.e. at least 300p share price; and they are expecting 2.5x more rollout in the EU, and roll out in other geographies like Australia, Far East, Midddle East, etc. So in terms of the share price: 300p for the UK + 750p for the EU + more elsewhere, gives an eventual share price well over 1000p (£10) making it a 2000+ bagger from here. £1000 investment now could be worth £2 million in future. That is a mind boggling return on investment.
mount teide: serratia - the AsiaMet management's systematic approach to creating value will see the continued proving up of the future potential of the asset portfolio, while using the strong predicted cash flows generated from the proposed near term BKM 25,000t a year copper development, to drive the further resource evaluation and phased development of the much larger Beutong prospect. On a two year view, the valuation has the potential to be multiples of the current share price. The material news that is likely to drive the valuation will be an updated Jorc and scoping study for Beutong in H1 2019. Logically, with at least 6 times the current resource of BKM, the NPV will be north of $1.2 billion - assuming the market values only 20% of the NPV, at $240 million/£200 million this provides for circa 22p/share. Assuming BKM moves, post finance in H2/2018, toward a $200 million NPV, after deduction for some dilution, allow say £120 milllion or 14p/share. Add in the BKZ JORC and further drilling around KSK of say 4p/share and a sum of parts value of circa 40p is possible within the next 12-15 months. Additionally, its possible that a successful finance and mine build at BKM will enable the market to value Beutong at a greater percentage of the scoping NPV; so 40p could be conservative. The KSK Asset has the BKM Copper Deposit, a 25,000tpa cathode copper development at definitive feasibility stage (expected in Q2/2018) with significant resource upside potential nearby. Its a low capex, very low opex, likely readily financeable project that a report by mine development specialists Hackman & associates suggests could be brought into first production as early as H1/2020. According to the management's 2018/19 operational plan, during the next 18 months, shareholders should know the full value of Beutong via a scoping study (with a better defined resource + metallurgy confirmation ), have BKM financed and under construction, a Jorc for BKZ, initial drill results for BKS/BKW, possible BK area porphyry confirmation and further resource evaluation of the outstanding Baroi prospect. In terms of current JORC size, Beutong is the one most likely to take the company up the value curve as its currently 6 times larger than BKM but, a year of focussed drilling at BK could well reveal 800m of high grade copper resource continuation between BKZ and BKM and a BK porphyry of similar magnitude to Beutong together with first drill results from a number of other prospects of similar potential to BKM. I would expect the real value to be seen here from mid 2019 onward when Beutong resource/scale and PEA is known, BKM is financed and is nearing production and we know more on the resources of the other KSK prospects. As the CEO said recently said an investment in ARS is about systematically creating value - 'we're in it for the long term, as this is where the big money will be made.' The management have done this type of development before in the region, taking Oxiana metals from a $3m junior into a $6bn major during the last commodity cycle recovery/boom phase during 2000-2008. The latest company presentation and last 2 years RNS's details the Management's participation in placings and prices paid, managements stake in the company and how the Board has taken incentivised share options in lieu of salary for nearly three years - it speaks highly about how well they have aligned shareholders interests with their own.

mount teide: Shipping / Industrial Metals Sectors In H1/2016 after waiting nearly 8 years for the Baltic Dry Index(-98%) to finally make a bottom, Copper(-56%), Zinc(-66%) and oil(-76%) as expected, also made a bottom within a few months of the BDI - not altogether unsurprising since 95% of all commodity production sees the bottom of a ships cargo hold at some stage between the mine/oil field and refiner/manufacturer. This was the signal I had been waiting for to go in extremely heavily in the copper/zinc/oil/shipping sectors - and continued to average up aggressively in 2017 by reversing out of long term positions in other sectors as the commodity sector cyclical recovery continues to gather pace. This early stage industrial metals cyclical recovery is different from almost all previously - since a decade low Warehouse Inventory situation and supply/demand deficit situation has developed within the first two years of recovery - something that took much longer in previous recovery phases. This occurred mainly as a consequence of a waterfall drop off in production development over the previous decade to preserve cash, almost complete cessation of exploration, industrial action at the major mines in Chile and Peru and a material drop off in ore grades/increase in operating costs at the principal global scale mines. Since the industrial metals/shipping sectors are highly cyclical over very long time periods - once the tide turns they are as close to a one way bet for years as the equity market throws up. Baltic Dry Index 1985-1994 - Recovery/Boom 1994-1999 - Recession 1999-2008 - Recovery/Boom 2008-2016 - Recession 2016-2024/5?- Recovery/Boom Predictably, the Copper chart has followed an almost identical pattern. The good news is that we are still in the foothills regarding recovery of the BDI and Copper prices - they are still 90% and 42% respectively below their previous cyclical highs. In the last recovery phase 1999-2008 Clarksons (CKN) share-price went from £0.90 to nearly £10.00 - those who sold in 2001/2 after doubling their money missed out on a further 800% of their original investment. Lloyd's List Intelligence in a special report published today described the global economic outlook as ‘best for shipping in a decade’ My main LTBH selections to play the industrial metals and shipping markets recovery phase over the next 3-5 years are Clarksons (CKN), Central Asian Metals (CAML) and Asia Met (ARS). Shipping - Clarksons CKN I'm expecting the BDI to be at circa 3,500 by the end of 2019/early 2020, that's nearly 250% higher than today but still just 29.6% of the 2008 all-time high of the last shipping cycle. If someone said to me that you could either have £30k of Clarkson's shares today(with a 2024 lock up period) or £100k cash in 2024 the likely peak of the new shipping sector recovery/boom phase - it would not be a difficult decision - i'd take the £30k of Clarkson's shares in a heartbeat! Why?, because Clarkson's ship-broking revenue is generated from a fixed percentage of a ship's charter contract. Most of the world's dry bulk/oil tanker/product tanker shipping fleet today is operating in the short term spot market - so as charter rates rise Clarkson's commission/revenue earned from each new ship charter rises in direct proportion. The scale of the last shipping recession was totally without precedent since the global shipping market is one of the few traded markets left that is not to a significant extent manipulated/controlled for political/financial/commercial purposes by major Nations. In UK property market terms the waterfall drop of the BDI between 2008 and 2016 was equivalent to a house falling in price from £200,000 to under £5,000! Its the reason why the valuations of ALL the main market US quoted shipping companies were decimated - with valuation losses averaging 95%-99% for those that avoided filing for Chapter 11 Protection or went bankrupt. The German KG Pension Fund Industry and shipping banks were also similarly destroyed by going into shipping at/close to the top of the markets - their combined losses were recently estimated by Lloyds List in excess of 100 billion Euros. Industrial Metals - Copper/Zinc Central Asian Metals CAML CAML is a very rare bird in the mining sector - an incredibly well managed, low operating cost, high cash generating, high dividend paying mining sector company which has demonstrated to the market it can make serious money and grow the dividend even in the depths of the worst recession to hit the sector for decades - a recession so brutal it brought most main market mining sector titans like Glencore and Anglo American to their knees - Glencore lost 85%+ of its valuation, and were forced to suspend the dividend and heavily dilute its shareholders with a huge placing to strengthen its balance sheet. While all this was going on CAML sailed serenely on and acted more like a dividend paying, safe haven, heavyweight FTSE company should act during a recession than ANY of the so called dividend paying, 'safe' haven FTSE heavyweights actually did! Unlike previous mining sector recessions, by the second year of recovery in the sector, Zinc, Lead and Copper are already at/close to deficit with warehouse stocks at/or close to decade lows due to mine closures, bankruptcies, smart use of mine shut-ins and a near 70% drop since 2013 in capital expenditure developing new production. Exploration dropped by over 90% during the last half decade. hTTp:// - decade low LME Warehouse stocks Add into this mix IMF Global GDP forecast uplifts to nearly 4% for 2018 and 2019, together with the US announcing a record programme of tax cuts and the opening of the capital expenditure floodgates on an unprecedented scale to rebuild their crumbling infrastructure. Add in the rapidly growing demand for industrial metals from the electric car and renewable energy sectors and India with a population almost identical to China (1.4 billion) commencing a huge countrywide infrastructure modernisation programme. Collectively, that lot is the perfect storm brewing for many years of strong demand and high prices. CAML as a low cost operator is incredibly well placed to do well during the recovery stage of the commodity cycle - The previous owner of recent acquisition the Zinc/Lead SASA mine made 100% profit in just over a year of ownership - and the price CAML paid in October 2017 is already looking a bargain since it was based largely on the 2016 accounts - Zinc and Lead pricing has gone up over 150% and 50% respectively following the recession lows in 2016. Peel Hunt(issued 10 Jan 2018) currently has EPS for 2018 of 38.3p and dividend of 19.31p(6.4%) giving a PE ratio of 7.9. If current metal pricing is maintained throughout 2018 the PE ratio drops to 6.2 The recovery of the global mining industry has seen valuations of most mining companies surge off the lows during 2017 - the 102 US quoted mining companies currently have the following combined PE Ratio's: 18.83/Forward - 52.11/Trailing London quoted Copper sector heavyweight Antofagasta currently has a trailing PE ratio of 58.19. All of which probably explains why CAML management had to run their slide rule over 150 companies during the last three years before finding one priced to their taste. And makes CAML's 2018 earnings with a forward PE ratio of 6.2 to 7.9 and trailing of 12.5 look mis-priced by comparison. The CAML valuation is difficult to ignore on a pure value level - and should a decent chunk of the valuation gap fail to close over the next 12 months, will leave the company a prime target for a market that is now experiencing a rising trend of M&A activity Asia Met ARS There is probably no better example in the mining sector than Asia Met of how the brutal 8 year recession in the industrial metal markets through to early 2016, decimated global production development and effectively brought exploration by the majors to a complete standstill for nearly half a decade. Posts 11248 and 10725 on the ARS thread gives a little background - so impressed with the potential of the world class ARS assets and discoveries found by exploration entirely funded by sector major Freeport, were the new Australian management who took over ARS in 2015: ALL the Board (Execs and Non Execs) have collectively elected to take their entire 'remuneration/fees' since as share-price incentivised stock options, thereby fully aligning themselves with shareholders to an extent I have never seen before in any company - three years of paying their own and families living expenses out of their own pockets is making a huge statement. How were they able to do this? Some like ARS CEO Tony Manini were instrumental in taking Oxiana Metals an Australian junior miner from a company worth $3m to $6bn during the previous 2000-2008 sector recovery/boom phase. Tony recently said, he managed to take Oxiana to a $6bn valuation by doing what he’s doing with Asiamet right now. No investment advice offered, intended or inferred. AIMHO/DYOR Note: After being way behind the curve for over 18 months a number of major US investment banks turned full circle and issued very significant upgrades last week to their 2018 Industrial metal price forecasts: Copper $8,000/t - $3.60/lb - Goldman Sachs - by year end $7,750/t - $3.52/lb - Bank of America - by mid year £7,175/t - $3.26/lb - Citigroup - Average for year $6,788/t - $3.08/lb - Current price $6,193/t - $2.81/lb - 2017 Average Price $4,848/t - $2.21/lb - 2016 Average price(copper made a bottom/8 year low in March).
