Very sizeable holding increase by Northern Trust - up to 13.76% (from 8.98%). Wonder where the increase (of 6m shares) came from?

Oxman, it is becoming a real issue on Stocko, the eps columns do not collate. The problem is the adjusted, adjusted earnings that brokers ( and increasingly Companies use). So, for HMLH the Stocko historic is statutory reported (2.3p)and the forecast is FinnCaps adjusted number 4.11p, showing an apparent 65% rise, when the actual like for like forecast is only 9% higher. So, LGT report FOUR different eps figures. Last year: statutory 2.13p, statutory diluted for options 1.98p, adjusted* 1.59p, and adjusted* diluted 1.49p. The biggest difference is that LGT pays negligible tax as it has historic tax losses. The 1.59p assumes a normal tax charge. So you could argue that the “proper” eps for LGT is 1.49p, a properly diluted, fully taxed figure. Keeping up ??? So, forecasts.....FinnCap have a historic, adjusted eps number of 1.5p. And their forecast is a rise of 7% to 1.6p. And for 2019, another rise to 1.8p. However, you could argue these are very conservative as LGT, for the moment, is not paying the tax. Stocko meanwhile has a historic eps of 1.99p, which is actually fractionally different to any of the numbers above. Stocko have the historic as the diluted, but untaxed number. I have NO IDEA where their 1.54p forecast is from....ah yes, I have found it. It is an old forecast from FinnCap on a fully taxed, diluted basis. But FinnCap upgraded that number in Feb to 1.59p. That compares to the 1.5p and would show 6% growth in eps ON THIS BASIS. However, the comparable number for Stocko would be 1.99p falling to 1.9p. I cannot immediately see why FinnCap have REPORTED eps falling as they have Net Income rising from £2.7m to £2.9m. And there are no new shares in issue. Did you follow any of that. Bottom line: eps on a proper, as if taxed, basis will rise c 7%, followed by 12%, according to FinnCap. The Stocko numbers are (again) very misleading ( well, actually wrong). Either way, LGT is therefore a tiny bit better value than people realise as there is NOT a crash in profits coming. Hope that helps. Come to the AGM on 3 May and meet them

Something has spooked people ? There seems to be net selling overall ? FinNCap have upped their forecasts by 5% and 11% for the next two years to 1.6p in 2018 and 1.8p in 2019. They have upped their divi forecasts by 18% and the target price by 10% to 30p

Agreed amt. Nothing to do with smoke and mirrors. Just very clearly showing the effect of the large prior year tax credit.

"Trader220 Feb '18 - 07:33 - 700 of 700 0 0 0 Like the revenue growth - but profit and eps a bit flat" The flatish EPS is because in 2016 there was a deferred tax credit of £750K i.e. negative tax, to recognise the likely future utilisation of past Corporation Tax losses. In 2017 the tax credit is "only" £200K. It makes more sense to compare the pre tax profits which have increased from £1,893K to £2,521K i.e. an increase of 33%. Excellent results imho.

Eps up 34% so anything but flat. You perhaps looked at the numbers impacted by tax adjustments which to my mind arent so important.

Yes, first growth for years. They have raised profit by squeezing costs, but this has never been a “growth” stock. Let us hope it can now move forward. There is new pension business coming forward, and let us hope that is not another misselling scandal to come

And there's the seller today. Boston Trust based in the Isle of Man - coincidence given yesterday's tax haven news.

Fits with the bumpy ride. I am happy to let well alone and have it push higher, consolidate, and repeat.
