The results are very seasonal. The last 6 half-yearly profits: 133m, 25m, 145m, 37m, 174m, 37m. So I wouldn't compare the market cap to the last 6 months' profit as Eastbourne1982 has done. Regarding CapEx, 45% is on new sites and 55% is towards investments into the existing estate. So maintenance Capex isn't far off the depreciation charge. This is before even considering the reduction in existing estate CapEx of 100m over 2018-2021. On a PE of less than 18, I'm a holder.

Well admittedly these aren't proper reasons and I haven't done any detailed research but my interest was piqued enough to put it on my watchlist because: - The chart did look cheap as per Eastbourne1982 - Different sector to anything I have exposure to. - Terrorism threat as a reason for doing badly I don't buy and if it is a factor it will be short term. - Long term I can't see any structural threat to this kind of entertainment business. Digital/home entertainment will never replace going out etc. - Lots of scope for growth I should mention I'm buying with a view to stick in an ISA as a long-term holding. Not a big amount and definitely not a short-term trade.

Debt and capex puts me off. Half year profit was only around 37 million against a market cap of 3.5 billion ! These only really look cheap from a chart perspective, i.e. they have dipped from nearly £5.50 to the current £3.45 mark. Clearly they must have been extremely overvalued at £5 plus and when you look at the numbers and fundamentals they certainly aren't a bargain now. Why buy ?

You were bang on sux. What price is fair value do you think and why? The current price feels like a tentative buy to me now but I haven't done a huge amount of research yet.

It's all about the growth story and building leisure parks in Asia is going to be the driver of that growth.

Theres nothing right about this company. The valuation is all wrong, its yield is unattractive, and summers over. Now is the winter of discontent. Needs to be half this price imo
