walbrock82: MUANGSING When you lower the rate of return, the share price should move higher. By choosing 5%, Lookers would be £3.67, if post-tax earning gets maintained at £80m.
muangsing: walbrock82 Out of curiosity what would the share price of Lookers be if the required rate of interest were to be 5% and not 11%. Regards
walbrock82: Car dealership market To understand the car dealership market, you need to know what driving the sector. The last recession caused oversupply on the manufacturing side, so car subsidy schemes have helped stimulate demand. The biggest change to car financing is the PCP financing model, where owners no longer own cars but lease it for two to three years. They pay for the depreciation of the car rather than the full price. Afterwards, the owners could pay the remaining balance or sign another PCP financing for another car. This is called the PCP finance model. The problem is the shift from oversupply in manufacturing to over supplying the retail side. As long as demand keeps rising there are buyers to be found. Now, SMMT is forecasting the UK new car sales to fall for the first time in four years by 5% in 2017. In 2018, this will decline by 3%. Within two years, the demand for cars would have fallen by 10% in total. Forecast That will hit car dealers like Vertu and Lookers because they rely on volume and price. So, my analysis for Lookers is it will trade around 80 pence in the next 12 months. For the breakdown of calculation and detail analysis on my share price prediction, click here:
ed 123: Someone was trying to buy a large quantity of shares at 111p in the closing auction today. I'd guess this was Odey. They have to buy back at some point and the rising share price will have them twitching. Holders have the upper hand, imo.
1fox1: I think the share price is now on a steady decline. 60/70p is a strong possibility in my opinion. Not a good idea to sell the parts division. This acted has a cushion if bad times return. I also see Motorpoint (MOTR) is well down this morning.
hopeful holder: A good buy under £1. I added more today at a pound and a penny. That gives me an average of £1.05 which I am happy with at this stage. I also added motor point as I felt they also provide an opportunity.I thought about adding more across the sector but do not want too much exposure to this sector.Good luck with your holding and I hope we all have our share price goals reached.
valhalla: Noticeable that Lookers has not participated in recent share price strength in competitors Pendragon and Vertu. Could it be statement with Caffyns results last week "we do however anticipate a slowdown in sales until Volkswagen is able to fully clarify the solutions to the affected vehicles ". Read across Lookers with 25% of dealerships being VW group ?
jaf111: Looks like the news well received - share price currently up 9%..... Certainly looks like a great deal....increases revenue from £3bn to £3.7bn which almost catches Pendragon, the largest dealer with revenue of £4bn. (Of course revenue by no means the most critical factor!)
ed 123: Ah yes, dear old Jack. He would have been kicking himself for not bidding a bit more for Lookers. His buy timing was good, as was his wish to buy out all other share holders. If only he'd offered a bit more ..... It wasn't long before Lookers' share price rose nicely and exceeded the price of Jack's would-be takeover. That's all with the benefit of hindsight, of course. The other issue with the sector is its history of using borrowed funds to buy out independents, regardless of the time of the cycle. But, maybe they've learned the lesson this time round? In fairness, again it's easy to be clever with hindsight.
trader_3: Shares Magazine 060313 . Brokers Panmure Gordon upgrade price target to 106p and possible future upgrades as market improves :- Lookers: a rare retail success On the back of solid figures from the UK car industry, motor dealer Lookers (LOOK) is the latest example of why the retail sector is not entirely on its knees. Its results are ahead of expectations and its share price, like that of peers including Vertu Motors (VTU:AIM) and Inchcape (INCH), is motoring ahead. Lookers has revved up 1.8% to 86.25p as its full-year numbers equalled its fourth consecutive year of record results. This triggered a new round of earnings upgrades by the analyst community. Driven by stronger conditions in the new car market, faster growth in used vehicle sales, steady improvement in after-sales and recovery in Lookers' parts division in the second half, pre-tax profits grew 9% to a £36.8 million. This result was £1 million ahead of consensus. The cash-generative car dealer confidently lifted the full year dividend 8% to 2.35p. Lookers is benefiting from slowly improving conditions in the UK motor retail market, which grew by 5.3% in 2012, with the company delivering double-digit growth in new and used car volumes and at improved margins, too. The domestic market is in far better health than the rest of the European Union, where demand has fallen as a result of the sovereign debt crisis with consumers hunkering down amid austerity measures and high unemployment. Data out to today from the Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders (SMMT) revealed new car sales rose for the twelfth successive month in the UK in February, bucking the market trend of falling demand across Europe. The SMMT said there were 66,749 new registrations last month, a 7.9% increase over February last year. Lookers is making the most of this uptick, off to a strong start in 2013, continuing to outperform the new retail car market and reporting a healthy order book for the key month of March. Signs of industry-wide recovery have been reflected in upbeat updates from Lookers' quoted peers too. Last week (1 Mar), Vertu Motors said annual numbers to February would beat forecasts, while Pendragon (PDG) last month (19 Feb) pleased with news of profitable growth for 2012 and a return to the dividend list. Andy Bruce, Lookers' newly-promoted chief operating officer (COO), says the business is also benefiting from its increasing exposure to the buoyant premium sector. This provides positive read-across to globally-diverse peer Inchcape (INCH) which is set to post full-year figures next week (12 March). Lookers' dealerships represent marques including Land Rover, Mercedes Benz and Audi, the latter relationship strengthened by last year's (5 Jul) acquisition of Lomond Audi in Scotland. 'Premium is becoming a bigger sector of the market,' insists Bruce, 'and this is where the bigger margins are.' Given Lookers' strong operational cash flow and low gearing of 24%, the company is well placed to swoop for strategic acquisitions in both the motor and parts divisions. 'We've always got a few irons in the fire,' assures Bruce. Following Lookers' numbers, Panmure Gordon has raised its price target from 90p to 106p and is sticking with its 'buy' recommendation on the stock. 'We are upgrading our 2013E and 2014E forecasts to take account of the higher run rate in the business at present,' writes the broker, 'with scope for further upgrades if markets continue to recover.' Solid media recognition for this undervalued stock . share price should re-rate further from here .
