effortless cool: This is getting stupid now! I have put a smallish buy order in at 86p, which is the level at which this becomes a 'strong buy' under my valuation methodology (market price >=30% below my valuation).
effortless cool: Header updated to reflect today's update and revised broker forecasts. Material broker upgrades have brought their income statement forecasts much closer to mine. They are now materially more optimistic than me on net debt/cash, however, bringing an upside to my forecasts. Given the sizeable broker upgrades today, I was surprised by the drop in price.
cravencottage: Cheers I've owned shares in MPAC before and look forward to reading what they have to say. I watched a Piworld webinar recently with Richard Leonard and he was extremely bullish on MACF and seems convinced BNZL will come in for them at some stage. I guess if you look at the earnings ratios they would seem a good fit.
tomps2: MACF mentioned by Richard Leonard's piworld interview yesterday (with Andy Brough and Richard), see at 10m19 Https://
illiswilgig: Thank you EC for your continued and oonsistent detailed assessments of MACF results. Like you I am impressed by the company performance during H1 - and as a bonus they finally look to be getting to grips with manufacturing. I saw comments on the low margin, low growth nature of the packaging and distribution markets (stockopedia) and whilst that has always been a concern of mine I see the buy-and-build successful execution in recent years, the environmental packaging and the online channel as under-rated developments here. Happy to hold at the moment with H2 substantially derisked in my mind, cheers
cellars: EC Thanks indeed for your update of the Header. FWIW my fair price of 103p post publication FY-20 results is very similar to your 98p (including benefit of today's update).
effortless cool: A very encouraging AGM statement from Macfarlane (LON:MACF) today, under current circumstances, particularly: "As a result of Government actions to address the COVID-19 crisis, we expect demand levels in the second quarter to reduce to between 75% and 80% of those seen in the second quarter of 2019. We are managing our cost base in line with the reduced levels of activity and we would expect the second quarter to be a profitable period of trading albeit well below that achieved in the first quarter". Everything I see from this company suggests that it is a very well run business. I suspect that there will be many attractive acquisition possibilities too, in the coming year, to allow it to continue its successful buy-and-build strategy.
effortless cool: clocktower, I have no idea but, if it comes to that, I would note the potential offsetting beneficial effect of coronavirus on the MACF pension deficit.
effortless cool: Fair enough. I didn't see the magazine, just got sent an email that highlighted MACF featured and showed a "buy" flag next to it.
effortless cool: Just working through the numbers now, cellars (makes a nice distraction from the sea of red). I can't say that I am too worried about that extract; I prefer to focus on: "2020 has started well and profitability in the year to date is ahead of the same period in 2019". Also, MACF is a buy tip in this week's IC.
