time_traveller: I can't muster much enthusiasm for the share price, with the underperformance to the general market and world economy becoming really quite marked, and disappointing. But hopefully, this small fish's lossmaker will be (or has already been) spotted as a big fish's bargain.
cc2014: The share price stood up well yesterday given how much the markets were smashed to pieces. If a stock doesn't fall on a bad day, that's usually a good sign that their are buyers out there happy to buy into any weakness.
hvs: Low & Bonar’s share price has fallen by c 40% over the last 12 months with more to come.
justiceforthemany: Low & Bonar’s share price has fallen by c 40% over the last 12 months and, after a rally during Q1, is now back to lows seen at the beginning of 2018. On our existing estimates, the company is trading on a current year P/E of just 8.3x and EV/EBITDA (adjusted for pensions cash) of 6.0x.
rathkum: 2 mega-cheap dividend stocks that I'd buy with £2,000 today The Motley Fool Apr 30th 2018 10:45AM While Low & Bonar's (LSE: LWB) share price may have steadied in recent months, investors are still not compelled enough to buy back into the business en masse just yet. You cannot blame them, in some respects. After all, the firm shocked the market with not one but two scary updates at the back end of last year, the shares first dropping on it warning of "challenging" market conditions for its Civil Engineering division in October. It plunged again in December after warning that profits would be "weaker than expected" for the final quarter due to an adverse product mix and the impact of sales timings at its Coated Technical Textile unit. News that chief executive Brett Simpson had defected to Fenner in the run-up to the Christmas period added to jitters as to how the company can reverse its troubles. Consequently it saw its market value shrink by almost half in the final three-and-a-half months of 2017. I reckon it's about time share selectors took a close look at the business again, however, as there remains plenty to be optimistic about. Low & Bonar managed to keep growing revenues in the first quarter despite difficult market conditions persisting. And with the company undertaking a number of self-help measures, from solving production problems at Coated Technical Textile to introducing fresh cost saving initiatives, the news flow is likely to become more positive during the second half of the year. Yield charges to 6% City analysts certainly remain largely upbeat over Low & Bonar's profits outlook and they are estimating earnings growth of 4% in 2017 and 8% next year. These readings may be reassuring if not exactly spectacular. The same cannot be said for the London firm's dividend prospects, however, due to the colossal dividend yields it currently packs. This year a 3.1p per share reward is being predicted, up from the 3.05p dividend of 2017. This yields an eye-watering 5.8%. Moreover, the anticipated 3.3p payout estimated for next year moves the dial to 6.2%. Investors concerned about Low & Bonar's ability to meet these projections should revenues worsen again can take heart from the fact that anticipated dividends are covered 2.2 times by predicted earnings, comfortably above the accepted safety terrain of 2 times. With it also sporting a dirt-cheap forward P/E ratio of 8 times, I think it's well worth checking out today.
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
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.
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.)
