justiceforthemany: Flower the ex-chairman was there for over 8 years and in that time the share price more than doubled almost hitting a pound. The last CEO deserves the most flak for jumping ship.
baner: cc2014 have you heard of "insider rules"..........? i think sterling are just desperate to try to support the share price - as are the directors and management. the result is not convincing so far.......... debts are too high here and they can sort that out by selling the crown jewels - but then they have no earnings left........... there are predators out there, no doubt. but uncertainties re the current trading are significant and meanwhile lenders are likely to be increasingly concerned. best bet in my view is that there will be a 20p placing before X-mas. the new chairman is respected amongst institutions and will find the money to bail L&B out.
nick rubens: Director buying isn't a reliable indicator. I remember the accountancy group Tenon where a director bought in the hundreds of thousands of pounds worth and yet I already decided on the figures, that things were bad financially. It went bust. This company has just warned that "full year profitability is now expected to be significantly lower than previously anticipated." The share price will at some point focus on getting past that and if the cost increases can be applied to customers(though they already said it's difficult because of competition). Margins are being squeezed. Until the results are reported and another trading update, I can't see much happening for a share price recovery, unless someone does a bid for it while it's vulnerable or maybe any activist shareholders take action. Dividend should be cut first and possibly a fund raise. Company bosses are never shy on taking shareholders money to keep themselves in salaries. Am I being too pessimistic?
time_traveller: Baner, or banal? Would directors really make large share purchases if they planned a placing at 20p? Really! No of course not. Volume is low, which can mean a standard seller selling into weakness, or a large holder dribbling in small amounts to lower the share price, for whatever reason.
justiceforthemany: EDISON RESEARCH Our end-FY18 net debt projection is now c £133m (down c £5m y-o-y), which represents almost 3.1x trailing EBITDA. As things stand, any dividend increase is very unlikely now in our view – we have moved to a flat payout profile in all three years – and in our view the near-term outlook will depend on earnings momentum at the year-end. Valuation: NAV discount The post-Q3 update share price move and earnings reduction for FY18 have been in step, leaving a current year P/E of 10.3x (6.7x EV/EBITDA). Even on our lower estimates, the P/E compresses to 6.4x by FY20 and if this trajectory can be achieved the current dividend payout (yielding 7.6%) could be sustained, but this is not a given. Absent any M&A related write-downs, our end-FY18 NAV is 50p.
cc2014: 12 million share is over 3% so we will found out in due course. What's probably most interesting is who the buyer is. I would suggest we will see counter-party trades later as the share price has been holding above 40 for the last 24 hours despite what looks like lots of sells at 40. I was lucky enough to make 3.5pts on this yesterday but regrettably that was small beans compared with the loss I took on the gap down due to stake sizing.
cc2014: For what it's worth we are now back give or take a point to where we were pre-results which sent the share price down. It seems clear enough that 50 is now holding and if you believe in the wiggly lines the downtrend has been broken. Most of the volume is coming in on the buy side and it looks like someone is trying to acquire stock without disturbing the price. They aren't getting very much though and bit by bit the share price is nudging up.
cc2014: A quick analysis of the EBITDA and the companies future capital spend plans will quickly lead to a conclusion that the debt will come down naturally over time even if the company does nothing other than continue trading as it is. Further, running some sensitivity analysis on EBITDA will tell you that the debt will come down even if their trading position deteriorates quite a bit. The directors are obviously not sitting around doing nothing. Whether we get disposals or not remains to be seen. What I expect some to jump on at the interims is that the debt is not likely to fall at half time. This is the natural cashflow position for LWB and is likely to be worsened this year due to investment in restructuring. However, the market is risk off in relation to debt at the moment and this may persist for some time. It will pan out as it always tends to in that the company will quietly get on putting things right, the debt will start to fall, the share price will rise and low and behold suddenly debt will be a good thing and they will be encouraged to take on more on it. Oh and by then the share price will have risen 50% and suddenly the broker upgrades will start appearing way after the turning point in the companies fortunes. Reminds me of RDSB and BP. when all the gurus were predicting oil was going to $10.
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.
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.)
