maddox: We had a inkling that legal services were experiencing strong demand back in October when RBGP reported 'Rosenblatt Limited ("RBL") has continued to trade well with case value and volumes remaining significantly ahead year-on-year.' KEYS in November were a bit more measured 'performed well throughout the second half to date' despite Covid-19, and 'now expects to deliver profits for the year comfortably ahead of current market expectations' This has now become the far more positive 'expects to report adjusted profit before tax for the period which will be materially ahead of current market expectations' Always think it useful to understand how the results/updates narrative is pitched and how well performance correlates across the different firms and markets. Does anyone have good insight into the drivers of this demand? Is WFH generating a lot of divorce cases for example?
alphabeta4: Very impressive update, taking the usual 'materially ahead' to mean at least 10% then pbt forecast at least £5.61m. Would imply H2 pbt of at least £3.4m. Cash at interims was £6.9m, £1m dividend paid since, £3.4m x say 80% is £2.72m. £4.4m cash on finals so now have c£4.22m extra cash vs then or c14p a share. Last year pbt £5.8m so forecast now circa 3% under. Share price back then £6.20, implies (£6.20*0.97)+14p for £6.16 minimum target. Seeing as consensus forecast forward pbt was £6.41m back then and they have just done £3.4m H2 would imply there's a case prospects are more solid vs back then (presumably from underlying business growth from fact they've still been adding partners in the recession). If so then could be further upside on the £6.14. A cautious £6.8m pbt forecast (£3.4m*2) would add another 6% to this target (6.8/6.4) for a target price of £6.52. All IMHO of course but enough for me to have added this morning, looks a quick 20% available and potential for positive surprises.
halfpenny: KEYS have a number of Partner/Virtual Lawyers who do the work for those who Outsource their legal work. Since Covid the demand has increased tenfold so results next month will be great news.
halfpenny: KEYS, they are now looking good value and with economy moving does put them in a strong outsourcing position. Companies are now looking closely at their bottom line and in house legal teams are expensive so Outsourcing is the next phase to improve productivity. See £6 plus as we get closer to Results in September.
boozey: Maddox, I agree. The business model of KEYS - like DWF (which I know about) and INCE (which I know very little about), has a business model that is tailor-made for tough times as companies outsource non core business activities (legal in this case) rather than carrying heavy specialist costs in-house. Seeking out sectors and companies that can prosper in the current climate is key to having a progressive portfolio right now. IT Outsourcing, online retail, Computer Games to name but a few. And Energy is a good defensive sector even if it will never set the world alight. Specifically on Keystone, with a spread of 20p+ at times it is almost impossible to short it without taking a massive risk. As it is an illiquid stock one has to be prepared to stomach the swings up and down as long as over time it goes more up than down!
maddox: halfpenny - you are a day trader with a short on, talking down the price - you haven't a clue. You've been shorting INCE and looking for another share in same space. Do you really think we're stupid and your one-liners will influence the sp? Looking forward to your insights and analysis on KEYS.
halfpenny: KEYS are now LESS Risky i got out at THIS LOW and now expect further growth as profits increase and Risks decrease looks good and this is a LOW price
halfpenny: KEYS looks like a silent winner with huge potential and looking very cheap. Lots of potential as economy Activity improves. My secret fund. How can you imagine a world without a solicitor? There will only be more work load as deals and conflicts will always continue.
eca04bpm1: new lawyers hired since COVID lockdown. KEYS strength and revenue driven buy ability to continue hiring.
maddox: tkamp, I agree, investorschampion opinions - this and others aren't persuading me to subscribe for their analysis. Whilst these legal market firms should do well from the expected increase in litigation as a result of Covid, KEYS as a platform business model, has different drivers. KEYS is a service designed for remote working - perfect for the Covid Lockdown - but I'm not sure I see a direct revenue driver for KEYS? Happy to be challenged on this?
