ymaheru: Not heard anything about moving production, so doubt it. They didn’t mention anything in presentation about impacts in China, but maybe will in investor call.
tole: growth shares have tumbled over 40%! Time to buy?LucecoIf Victorian Plumbing's valuation still appears a little too rich, lighting specialist Luceco (LSE: LUCE) is looking far more palatable. Right now, the near-£500m cap company's stock changes hands for a little over 15 times earnings. Sadly, my bullish call on LUCE just over one month ago wasn't shared by the market. Despite reporting very decent numbers and raising the interim dividend by 73%, investors have elected to abandon the stock en masse. All told, LUCE shares were down 41% before markets opened today since hitting an all-time high in early September. Then again, they're still up 41% in the last 12 months. In my defence, I questioned whether the lack of buying activity on the day did suggest investors were concerned by the firm's comments relating to significant cost inflation and supply chain setbacks. Even so, I underestimated just how great this concern was. Some director selling hasn't helped matters.Of course, short-term setbacks may be regarded as opportunities for long-term investors such as myself. This remains a quality business, in my opinion. Bar the odd blip, margins and returns on capital have been consistently great. The aforementioned cash returns should also be sufficient compensation while investors await a recovery. How long that recovery takes is debatable, of course. Far from switching off from this growth stock, I'd be comfortable starting to build a position today.
dr biotech: I feel that potential disruption in Chinese manufacturing and shipping are causing investors to be wary. UPGS is a similar company in that whilst it has a UK design and development section most of the products are made in China - LUCE has an assembly plant over here but thats mostly reliant on Chinese parts. UPGS are down 35% since their last positive trading update. There's a lot of bad news priced in there and here that may just melt away - but also I'd say the headwinds are stronger now than they were a few months ago so some pullback is justified. I feel markets in general are more nervous - this is shown in the smaller FTSE250 and russel index if not yet in the DOW and FTSE100. But I'm looking at this as a longer term hold - 3 years or so, and I've avoided buying at the top which is something.
our haven: I note the new lending facilities. Will they spell out sometime soon any changes to their development plans?That said, the management team have been doing a great job so far. One happy investor.
dubai123: Will be interesting to hear from management at the investor meet company meeting online tomorrow morning.
hiddendepths: I have ESO and tried to buy more a month or two ago. But Interactive Investor wouldn't allow purchases of it any more. I'm only allowed to close my position which, surprise,surprise, I'm in no rush to do! Edit: Just checked again with II and they will now allow purchases but seem to charge £343 to buy £10k worth of shares. Very odd!
napoleon 14th: LUCECO 123.8p Gain to date: 6.7% Original entry point: Buy at 116p, 19 December 2019 INVESTORS SEEM TO be taking a shoot first, ask questions later approach to electronics components and LEDs firm Luceco (LUCE) and any potential output problems from the shutdown of its factory in Jiaxing, China. The site has been closed down for the past couple of weeks because of the coronavirus outbreak. Importantly, there have been no reported cases of coronavirus among Luceco’s employees. But after raising 2020 full year guidance at the end of January thanks to firming demand, investors are clearly concerned that those bumped up targets may now be missed. As we went to press we had been unable to confirm if, or when, the factory might reopen but as analysts at Liberum rightly point out any shortfall in volumes near-term can be made up for during the rest of the year at the cost of some modest overtime. ‘Management note that there is no impact to current full year guidance,’ says Liberum. Guidance for 2020 adjusted operating profit of between £20.5m and £21.5m. SHARES SAYS: Short-term risks cannot be discounted but the powerful growth and margin improvement story remains intact. We will keep an eye on events in case of a more prolonged impact.
