minerve: Extract from Barclays: With a share price down over 25% in the past 12 months and consensus remaining 100% overweight, we seek to assess whether the decline is justified, or more simply a result of wider sector concerns. In our view, significant acquisitions, H1 WCap outflows, heavy historical use of exceptionals, meaningful on- and off-balance-sheet leverage, increasing utilisation of JVs and a forthcoming divisional restructure inevitably raise some concerns, particularly in light of recent issues in the sector.While we appreciate a number of Kier’s attractions – with a strong position within the Highways market, which should see increased spend in the forecast period on assumption of control of the Smart Motorways JV and the expected returns that should be generated from the investments made into residential and commercial property development over the past three years – we believe the shares are not as ‘cheap’ or cash-generative as at first glance, with significant adjustments required to appreciate the full leverage position. We see few potential catalysts to drive a substantial re-rating given the greater level of risk now in the model and, as a result, initiate at Underweight with a 995p price target based on our SOTP valuation, which we view as the most logical way to approach the hybrid business model. and: Within this note we highlight a number of areas that raise some uncertainty on the sustainability and cash generation of underlying earnings within the group’s Contracting businesses – namely adjusted cash conversion, which we see as lower than reported in presentations, significant provisions created on acquisition, relatively soft organic earnings progression once adjusting for M&A and a mixed outlook for the sustainability of high payables balances in construction. and: With a growing share of earnings from leveraged joint ventures in Property and Resi, visibility is increasingly challenging and earnings sensitivity increasing. 67 pages apparently.
engineer66: It used to be when a contractor won Gov work the share price went up, now I wonder what liability have they taken on. Gov does not seem to give a damn about their UK suppliers. Unless the risk-reward balance changes I cant see firms with exposure to UK gov contracts on construction or services as attractive.
zicopele: Apologies ...meant dividend cover. Who knows what the cover is? Nobody knows what the profits are. The market understands this and has discounted for risk. As for brokers setting share price targets, they are whistling in the wind.
hoistman: what I'd like to know is why is KIER share price tanking, it should be climbing according to the facts.
marksp2011: Interesting share price collapse. Subsidence ? 15==>11 in 4 months. now at a 12 month low
ed 123: Quandary. JP Morgan have Kier as their sector favourite, yet WorldQuant have been (and possibly still are?) short selling Kier. I can understand the former's position but I wish I knew just why WorldQuant were short selling. Have they seen something or are they just following momentum? If it were just momentum trading, then I would be more confident about buying - 5.7% dividend yield and possible share price recovery. I hesitate because they may have some other reason and may keep selling. Today's trading was encouraging for holders, with the afternoon reversal hinting at a possible blue finish. But ... the price weakened over the last 10 minutes, so seller was still evident. Summer coming and if 'Trumpflation' doesn't live up to expectations the US markets could give back some gains. Hmmm ... maybe not a good time for me to be brave here?
speedsgh: Buy cheap Kier, says Peel Hunt - HTTP:// Recent share price weakness at construction and property group Kier (KIE) has created a buying opportunity, according to Peel Hunt. Analyst Andrew Nussey reiterated his ‘buy’ recommendation and target price of £16.00 on the stock after in line first half results, which included a new residential joint venture that ‘accelerates the re-deployment of capital into affordable housing’. Nussey added that despite management remaining ‘confident in the delivery of the Vision 2020 objectives’ to grow earnings and dividends per share, the shares have ‘drifted lower’ by c.10%. ‘This appears unwarranted and with the shares trading on 11.3x June 2018, offering a 5% yield – 1.6x covered – we reiterated our “buy”,’ he said. ‘The Kier model is straightforward and working well…we are confident that the Vision 2020 will support rerating as the value drivers become better understood.’ At the time of writing, the shares were trading flat at £13.17.
shauney2: ‘Buy’ Kier Group (target price £16) Kier (KIE) is a property, residential, construction and services company. ‘Kier already pays an attractive yield, but it is the dividend growth potential that stands out,’ writes Peel Hunt analyst Andrew Nussey. ‘Kier’s exposure to more resilient growth markets (eg, infrastructure at 40% FY17E EBITA) is yet to be fully understood. However, we are particularly excited by the potential to invest the predictable and attractive cash flows from services (52% FY17 EBITA) and construction (24% EBITA) into the complementary property (12% EBITA) and residential (12% EBITA) activities. ‘Our “base case” analysis indicates the potential to deliver 165p of earnings in 2020, implying a potential organic CAGR [compound annual growth rate] of 12% (8% CAGR in dividend as cover rebuilds to 2x). Despite the recent share price performance, there is still scope for re-rating as well as earning upside for continued strong execution.’
speedsgh: Kier downgraded on share price strength - HTTP:// Kier Group (KIE) has been downgraded after strong share price growth as it is set to benefit from government investment in infrastructure. Numis analyst Howard Seymour downgraded the stock from ‘buy’ to ‘add’ with a target price of £14.07. The shares jumped 2.5% to £13.12 yesterday. ‘Kier has once again demonstrated a strong performance in its full-year figures, and we would particularly highlight the strong organic growth, profit outperformance versus peers and materially better net debt profile as key attributes of the results,’ he said. ‘Self-driven initiatives should enable double-digit profit before tax and earnings per share growth to 2020, but we also believe that the strong scope for increased infrastructure investment and greater government focus on the affordable housing market put Kier in a prime position and should at least underpin upper quartile profit and share price performance.’ He said the downgrade was based on ‘recent share price strength’ but the group is ‘one of our favoured plays in the sector’.
speedsgh: Prospects for Kier not reflected in share price - HTTP:// Construction and property group Kier (KIE) has been upgraded thanks to a positive outlook for the second half of its financial year. Numis analyst Howard Seymour upgraded his recommendation from ‘add’ to ‘buy’ with a target price of £16.25. The shares dipped 1p to £12.99 yesterday. ‘Kier has demonstrated a strong performance across the group with good organic growth in construction and residential operations, while (the acquisitions of) Mouchel has clearly been the driver of services growth,’ he said. ‘We believe this sets the scene for an excellent outlook for H2 and beyond. Market improvement coupled with management actions… means that Kier has the platform to provide best-in-class growth relative to the wider sector.’ Seymour added: ‘We continue to believe that this is not reflected in the share price – noting in particular the 20% yield premium to the sector even though Kier is one of the few increasing its dividend per share.’
