ed 123: Ta, CC2014. I appreciate your views. Myself, I don't feel confident predicting where this goes in the short term. Further out, half year results will be on 11th July. Those results should be poor and should include the outcome of the review into the Civil Engineering Division. More writedowns to come? Fwiw, I'm likely to give them some time to get their planned improvements working. Therefore, LWB is a hold for me atm and I'll study the full year report on 30th January 2019. Dividend is good and there's potential to double the share price over a couple of years IF they get a proper grip on the business. I like the presence of the Luxembourg duo on the register (akin to a put option?).
cc2014: I have the comfort of being able to watch the market most of the day and see what happening on L2. For the last week there is one seller out there trying to shift quite a few shares. As of last night he appeared to have at least 150k left to shift. He seems to want a price of 56.8 and won't go below that, although that the 36.5k trade today at 55.6 makes me wonder if he;s getting less precious about the price as we approach the AGM. I have seen this pattern on a number of stocks this week. It's like someone sold a whole raft of stuff last week (mostly industrials/manufacturing possibly related to Trump trade wars) and the MM's are still trying to shift it all. What seems to happen is as soon as the volume is shifted it's like a coiled price and the share price immediately moves up as there is no other seller. Anyways none of this will matter by tomorrow as the update will almost certainly move the share price. I am assuming the financials are going to look pretty flat. I think there will be an small improvement in the underlying position but this is going to get chewed up by the movement in exchange rate. I'm not too worried. Even in the worst case there's enough EBITDA to reduce the debt pile. It's just a matter of how fast.
cc2014: One of the strangest days I've ever seen. With trade tensions easing and markets rallying one would have though the share price would go up. Yet today there seemed to be very little buying which ok that happens but it seems some were selling. Arrrrghhhhhh
justiceforthemany: The share price barely moved though so can we be sure it was a sell? Massive trade like that.
ed 123: Yes, about 2.6% of the issued share capital in that one trade. The share price was around this level (60/61p) when Strategic last increased, so they're unlikely to be the sellers. Maybe they will pick up some (all?) of this parcel? Anyone going to the agm?
cc2014: I'll try something more subtle then. I love this share because only 5% of it's business is in the UK and that works for me to diversify my portfolio. I have access to far greater GDP growth than the UK at what seems to be a really bashed up share price where the dividend stream of 5% should put a floor under it. Downside is limited- say 7p. Upside is I don't know 90p+ PCA with Chair buys 50k at 62p so that gives me assurance too. All product manufactured in the region it's sold, all loans in currency where it's sold. What's not to like? Oh and 150k unfilled in closing auction last night at 60 which I assume is Sterling still collecting. It's good news that they continue to collect stock now they have a NED on the Board.
ed 123: CC2014 Well, with technical reasoning I suppose it reached 53p because that was the level at which the (unknown) institutional investors met the buy price of Sterling. Emotionally, there was fear that the warning update could have been the start of something bigger and I guess 53p was the expression of the worry. It's a shame they didn't put more detail into the warning. Could they have given their estimated debt to ebitda ratio? Could they have mentioned the £12m pension gain? Such comforts would have reassured holders. The selling might then have been less and the share price might not have dipped below say 60p? Justiceforthemany 90p? Maybe one day but it will need to show stability of earnings first.
eastbourne1982: If I was running this company I'd get a rights issue done (although I would have been doing it when the share price was 80 - 90p). A rights issue at say 40p for existing holders to raise 50 million wouldn't have too much of a detrimental impact on the share price imho (currently 52.5p mid price). The debt is what is putting me off buying, I certainly won't be the only one, get the debt reduced and start moving the business forward. When I value this I'm using the market cap plus the debt to get circa 300 million, undertaking a rights issue doesn't really impact on this however it would take the debt worry away and give things a more positive and stable feel.
rathkum: I would not read too much into Brett Simpson's departure. He was obviously headhunted by Fenner which is 4x the size of LWB based on current share price. Has the market over reacted? I think so. I feel no compelling reason to sell as I see very limited downside if any.
ed 123: Been looking at today's trades. Although nearly all today's deals have been marked as "buy"s, it is a false picture. Reason? There has been a buyer offering more than the mid-price to anyone wanting to sell. As a holder, obviously I'm hoping this buyer continues to mop up and, eventually, the share price rises. But, who knows? Low and Bonar's financial year will end one month today. Broker updates are showing an average estimate of 6.77p earnings for the current year and 7.93p for next year. If those earnings figures are met and no more glitches, then a share price of 12.5 x 8p earnings, c. 100p, might be reasonable for February 2018? Dreamland ..... if some bigger player wants LWB and offers, say, 9 x ebitda. That might give EV of c. 522 million (for y/e 30.11.17), say 392 million after debt, or 118p per share. That would be about a 68% rise from today's 70p share price. Unlikely to happen, of course, but no harm in my dreaming. (No advice intended - no crystal ball, either.)
