For a steady away dividend payer, the share price has been up and down all over the place (based on a quick look on HL: for year ending 31/12/2016, present yield 2.60%, with a (very solid) cover of 2.2 and more promised next year). Hopefully things will settle down now into a more positive uptrend.

Results this week were very reassuring. Simply doubling the H1 EPS gets you 11.4p EPS, so a current year PE of a tad over 10x. However they're expecting £150m synergies by 2019, which will be gradually phased in. Given H1 operating profit was just over £50m, that synergy figure is huge. These looks very cheap as a market leader in their sector. Will be adding more on Mon

From yesterday's interims: "The Board today announces a proposed interim dividend of 2.0 pence per share (2016: 1.0 pence per share). The dividend will be payable on 9 November 2017 to shareholders on the register on 22 September 2017."

Headline in today's Telegraph business section (hard copy): "Ladbrokes Coral hikes dividend as increased cost savings emerge" Also mentions GVC sniffing around with a possible takeover bid. Merryweather beating McGregor has played into their hands. Nothing to do with that article but there seems to be a desire in some quarters to turn the betting industry into some form of Social Services offshoot (referred to elsewhere in the same paper, "record fine for 888"). Finding the Telegraph business section quite a good read st the mo.

There was a small snippet in Shares mag this week about the impact on profits from potential FOBT legislation. THey put the impact on profits at 50% at LCL(?). I assume this is 50% of profits from FOBTs, rather than 50% of overall profits - does anyone know the contribution which FOBT make to LCL's financials, either in terms of turnover or profit? Extract below. Thanks Adam RESEARCH FROM CREDIT Suisse suggests there is an increased chance the Government will slash the maximum stake for fixed odds betting terminals from £100 to £2 in a review later this year. This could mean a big hit to profitability at bookmakers William Hill (WMH) and Ladbrokes Coral (LCL). The investment bank quantifies this as a 40% hit to profits at William Hill and 50% at Ladbrokes Coral.

If the review significantly reduces the maximum bet, it is likely to come under pressure to change other parameters at the same time - front and back office. Accounts for gamers is one. The trade off may be more machines that are seen as socially more acceptable. The tax office is not going to accept losing 50% of income at this time.

The FOBT review is not expected to be published before October.What would be the outcome if the maximum stake on FOBTs was reduced to say £5 ?Players would theoretically spend a lot more time on each FOBT.Demand for gaming machines may exceed availability.Queues may form.To meet demand the bookies would introduce more machines in the shops where player demand was not being met.As the Luddites like to use theoretical maximums a reduction from £100 to £5 would theoretically require 20 times as many FOBTs to meet current player demand.In reality the figure will be much lower than this and related to the average level of betting rather than the maximum bet permissible.In any case, a significant reduction in the maximum bet will likely result in more FOBTs.

W1,I agree with your sentiment hence I have stayed out of SCH despite obviously good prospects as the payment processor.Sagi now only holds approx 6.5% of PTEC having cashed up over the past two years. I feel better for that and think the company is now much more attractive to institutional investors and potentially overseas buyer, with weak Sterling and cheap market cap.

I like GVC, who have a good track record with acquisitions and returning excess cash to shareholders. Not so keen on companies run by Israelis as - from experience - they tend to run the businesses in their interests (which tends to include the management as well). In fact, companies with large outside foreign shareholders are a red flag for me; even though the LSE have tightened up on the rules. W1

Hi w1, I'm not a LCL holder but watching for a turnaround. I am a PTEC holder, which is a significantly safer investment imho. I held LAD many years ago and kept them on my radar for many years after I sold. There is the ongoing threat of regulation / tax changes and bad publicity around FOBTs. The bad publicity and lobbying look set to continue even if changes DO take place this year. FOBTs have such high visibility and seem to be the whipping boy for the declining appearance of UK High Streets and shop closures. PTEC is little affected by this, as FOBT is just one product and they will always exist in some form. I've never understood the idea that lowering the maximum bet will change the behaviour of the punter. He will just get to play for a lot longer.

At least you can't link FOBTs to your bank account; unlike online gaambling.

The problem with fobts is that clamping down on stakes will simply push addicts online. At least the govt gets the tax revenue and what it should do is use some of it help with addiction treatment. Addicts will always find away. w1

Not surprised that plans have been shelved. Brexit will make us poorer and the govt needs all the money it can get! The Tories are getting this out of the way while everyone is on holiday.

Hi Nod, Funny how we end up on similar pages. This is one of my other chunky positions. There's so much scope for self help in LCL as the previous Ladbroke's management was rubbish and there's also big opportunity in online. One big advantage LCL have over pure online operators is the ability to cash out in the shops. Getting money out of online only has been problematic. The upgrade on the cost cuts is not surprising as the Coral team who are now running the show ran Coral for a buy out company and know about cash! w1
