fenners66: Sorry but how can a minor investor with no ability to attend a general meeting - to question directors - be happy at a board that for whatever reason - buys a property with all the cash a company has and more - barely uses it and then sells it 3 years later to a new company vehicle that appears set up for the purpose - at a £5m (at least) loss ? I say at least because there was interest to pay on borrowings. There seems to have been no actual reason for buying it - and the share price reacted accordingly. At best it is incompetent. I prefer to invest in companies with competent directors.
greedfear: Written like a real downer. :) A lot of positives here. Management currently doing all the right things. This share is far less risky now then it has been. Share price not reflecting the potential c.q. value (of the LA brand). Buy and hold. This will rerate.
kirk 6: Results out and read very good other than what we already new from previous profit warnings. A brighter future coming here from practically a bankrupt share price
kirk 6: This doesn't sound like a company going under? How do people think this large hotel expansion will be funded? Surely with the share price virtually worthless there has to be some value here??
fenners66: The Board announces today that due to personal obligations, Mr David Walton Masters, Deputy Chairman and an Independent Non-Executive Director will not seek re-election to the Board of Directors at the Company's Annual General Meeting (the "AGM") on 16 October 2018 and intends to step down from his positions from the date of the AGM Carefully chosen wording "personal obligations" ........ ermmm ? So with no more detail we can only speculate what personal obligations - obligated him to step down from the role..... Not the first director to resign here .... and they can see better than most what is going on. The rest of us have to draw conclusions and the share price helps that process....
and1: The fact that the company has not reacted to a 55% move in the share price could indicate something is afoot. An announcement over the weekend perhaps?
fenners66: justice - why refer to OVG - because it is a very real and current example that you can click the top of this page for (financials tab) and see the "free money" on offer - that no one but the directors and major shareholders will ever get their hands on! Never made a profit and never likely too - it will just go in DIR's Rem. but they have piles of cash and shares in polymetal (business sold nearly 10 years ago). When you get someone in charge like their directors they are not obliged to return cash to shareholders - ever. Now LA has a man who believes spending all the cash on a property is more important than paying dividends. Who has appointed family to the board (?) Who sees a hotel that LA rent from his hotel group as the future and presides over closing down sales channels. Oh yeah and the smart market has dropped the share price inexorably for years.
kirk 6: No one saying it's isn't a logical or even good post 11pecent so I don't know why you feel so insecure you have to post 3 times since! My query is why when anyone ever posts anything remotely positive it's always quashed by fenners day in day out. My question is what has fenners done about it if he/she feels that way so strongly?I'm in the opinion this will turn around and be multiples of current share price by end of 2018 so therefore going to hold of from implying the management are fraudsters and not acting in the interests of shareholders which is their legal obligation. So my query is why so many posts say in day out by fenners?
fenners66: I think this is going private. If you had to invent a strategy for taking it private it would have been exercised like this. 1, get a controlling interest 2, take over the board 3, have independent directors resign and replace 4, buy a large property near 3% of your business and half a world away from the other 97% - which is surplus to the business 5, Use ALL of the cash so there is no money left to pay out dividends to those minority shareholders - as an income share this hits the share price. 6, Suffer and unfortunate devaluation of the property on the other side of the world, who knows what it is worth ? who can argue? 7, Watch the share price decline further as a result of the write down. 8, Increase the salary of the board members (family?) that you appointed - less profit 9, Review share price and see if the whole company has become cheap enough to buy. 10, if not continue until it is
jimmywilson612: I disagree Carcosa - I think it matches the funamentals and shows how tough retail is at the moment. If you simply compare the PE to other retailers: ALY: PE 10 MKS: PE 9 BON: PE 6.8 NXT: PE 11 SCS: PE 11 Therefore I dont see if necessarily as a decline in ALY share price, but a decline in the over view of the retail sector.
