Knights Group plc issued a trading update for the year ended 30 April 2023 this morning. The Group anticipates full year revenue of c.£142m, up by 13% compared to the prior year (2022: £125.6m), with underlying PBT anticipated to be c. £21.5m, a 19% increase on the prior year (2022: £18.1m). The balance sheet remains healthy with net debt as at 30 April 2023 expected to be just c.£29m. The Group continues to expand and attract high quality talent and is also making strong progress in driving operational improvements and productivity across the business, with the benefits of this expected to be realised in the new financial year and beyond. Acquisitions are integrating well, acquisitive expansion is ongoing with the Group agreeing to purchase St James Law Limited and Baines Wilson LLP earlier this month. Valuation is very attractive with forward PE rtio at just 4x ranking the share 2nd out of 58 names in the Professional & Commercial Services market. Share price still lacks positive momentum, the remainder of the investment case looks attractive. BUY...

Looks very cheap on price/sales (.6 vs 1.3 at GTLY, 1.8 at KEYS)? for a company making such decent net margins, and on a PE basis (<5?). Danger of course is falling revenues, but not sure if legal firms get too badly affected in recessions? It's a people business, so you'd think easy enough to right size. Could trade at 2x or even 3x the price and nobody would bat an eyelid.

See my earlier posts. Sometimes it pays to not look at what the herd says and do yor own research into why a share is supposedly cheap..

Knights Group Holdings plc posted unaudited HY results this morning. Revenue increased by 19% to £71.2m, Underlying PBT was also up 19% to £9.0m. Basic underlying EPS increased to 8.26p from HY 2022: 6.98p while net debt was up to £35.6m in line with the Board's expectations. The Group continues to expand acquisitively, the acquisition of Coffin Mew during the period bolsters Knights' presence in the South of England while that of Meade King was announced post-period end and facilitates entry into Bristol's fast-growing legal services market and strengthens the Group’s position in the South West. Valuation is very attractive with forward PE ratio under 6x, while the share price is into the 3rd month of a rally off 2022 lows and building some positive momentum. Net debt is a little high with gearing ratios a little below 100%, but it is not an obstacle to acquiring the share. BUY...

Decent update in the context of the share price decline- sounds like more of a focus on margins and organic growth too which would be welcome. Interestingly they seem to be benefiting from the macro environment in terms of recruitment and acquisitions

Also increase in interim divi which I wasn't expecting

If you follow the naked trader though you'd know we've been down this path before with him and he's bought in previously before bailing out at the 1st sign of trouble. Don't get me wrong, it's great to see him invest as he's pretty good at picking shares. But his investing strategy is more than likely quite different to a lot of us here and he can quickly flip from something looking like a good investment to putting it in the bin and moving onto his next share.

I think that's because he sets very strict stop loss levels from what I have read in his pieces over the years.
Which is OK.
But it can throw you out when you don't need or really want to be out.
I don't use that "system" so to speak, which sometimes means I get tied into a share longer or much longer than I would like to be.
However, it also means I can trade in what I call an "inside trade", i.e. If I am showing a loss on a trade in say SBRY which I do a lot of and I am showing a loss, then I often buy again and take a profit on the inside trade, while still under water on the original trade and I may do more than one insider at different (lower) prices etc.
I often have several insiders going and taking profits from while still under water on the original and I often, as with SBRY get a dividend on say, 5,000, 5,000 and 4,000 and may even exit the original trade with a small loss, having taken my profits on one or several inside trades and taken a chunk of dividend on not only the original but the subsequent inside trades.
But one has to keep an eye on it all, but I do NOT obsessively watch the share all day every day.
Finally (boring boring) I would only ever do this with a trade such as SBRY, TSCO,RR. and I used to do it with MRW until it went off the grid.

Sorry to bore you all.
Best wishes for the coming time of year.
