lukmanpatel: Another troll by the username lsehotdealz haha, share price is stagnant and there’s talks of fundraise at 10p on that board lol desperation has lead to going round posting on different board to prevent share price from dropping, usually ud stay quiet and average down and accumulate if you see huge potential lmaoo he’s spamming all the boards
bookbroker: Not so positive today, this management needs to start improving the share price, otherwise we will see a takeover here, has nice assets and good brand identity!
trytotakeiteasy: Minerve - fair enough. I would just be careful of rational versus adaptive expectations. The latter is when if the share price has gone down or recent news is negative the view taken on the fundamentals of a company is negative. Rational is looking at the long-term outlook. I was reading about a lot of new rides at Alton Towers and elsewhere so I haven't seen evidence that they haven't invested. Whether theme parks remain attractive is probably another issue entirely. LEGOLAND should be the leading children's theme park. I always see huge queues for the Midway Attractions in London: Eye, Tuassauds, Sea Life, Shrek. I think people like experiences so I think they will get back on track. However, there is more competition with I think a Harry Potter attraction near London.
philanderer: Ahead of next weeks AGM statement.....Panmure... BE The AGM statement traditionally has no numbers but we expect YTD trading to be in line with management expectations. The trend of improving inbound visitations to Merlin’s London attractions should be holding, given strong hotel RevPAR/air traffic data and robust airport concession performance from the likes of SSP Group/The Restaurant Group. Terrorism concern remains elevated across gateaway cities (and the Drayton Manor tragedy may have taken the shine off UK performance) but Merlin’s portfolio is well diversified (greater than 70% profits ex-UK) and 2017 expectations feel well set as peak trading approaches, for £306m PBT. Share price strength has continued and Merlin’s valuation now (rightly) sits towards the top of the peer group, trading on 12.8x 2017 EV/EBITDA. HTTPS://
eadwig: philanderer, "Yes, but how much of Merlin's revenues/profits are generated in London? We know it is a global business." MERL is geographically diversifying as fast as it can, but its biggest single concentration of business is in and around London, as stated by the CEO in the results presentation. Mdme Tussauds is the number one tourist attraction in the UK, plus the London Eye, London Dungeon, out of town pleasure parks etc. That makes them vulnerable to any impact from terror attacks in London especially, but they also saw drop off in business in the UK that correlated with other European city attacks. The mass shooting in Orlando last year could have happened anywhere that couple lived, it just happened to be Orlando which was badly affected for some weeks afterwards, and that is probably MERL's most prolific regional earner after London/UK. They had some very bad luck in 2016. If terror attacks are lessened, and the pound doesn't keep strengthening (hard to imagine), I think 2017 will see a rate of growth that actually justifies the price multiple MERL currently carries. Last year's results didn't with the results showing a drop in like for like sales in much of the business. I was expecting a drift down in share price, but its holding up very well and many analysts are remaining enthusiastic, which I didn't expect. I may have to add at higher levels than I was intending. No rush though, this one keeps growing for years .... before the takeover from a major media company which is a coming a few years down the road, in my opinion.
philanderer: Merlin Entertainment hotels could lift share price to 800p - Morgan Stanley (ShareCast News) - The plan by Merlin Entertainments to add hotels to their theme parks is underappreciated by the market, said Morgan Stanley on Wednesday as it set a bullish share price target for the years ahead. Adding hotels to theme parks increases the visitor catchment area, revenue visibility, ancillary revenues, trading periods and guest satisfaction, Morgan Stanley gushed, with themed hotels such as Lego rooms at its Legoland parks providing an "immersive" family experiences and premium revenues. Its analysis suggests around £450 revenue per room per night, which is three to four times higher than the market average, with management's ambitious target to increase the current 3,600 rooms by 2,000 by 2020. With an average of 400 at its large parks being well short of the 1,000 at some competitors, Morgan Stanley sees 7,000 rooms by 2022, with hotels growing to 30% of adjusted operating profits, adding 5% to the annual group number. Analysts calculated that earnings per share, which came in at 19.56p and are forecast at 22p for 2017, with continuing strong London hotel and visitor statistics expected to help Midway performance this year, could reach 50p by 2022. A target price of 580p was set, with the bull case putting a 1,000p share price based on a forward multiple of around 20 times. HTTP://
eaaxs06: It sounds like a great move, especially as it’s with a local partner, in China Media. I’m not surprised the share price has reacted so well to the news, let’s hope it received a favourable press tomorrow, and reassures investors we’re not a One Trick Pony.
broadwood: Merlin Entertainments Merlin Entertainments runs 100 theme parks and visitor attractions in 22 countries across four continents. The company is the second-largest operator in the world to Walt Disney. Merlin’s portfolio of brands — which include Alton Towers, Legoland and Madame Tussauds — was put together over the past couple of decades, but the company was only floated on the stock market as recently as last year. Like Hikma, Merlin currently sits just outside the FTSE 100 and trades on a premium rating: the market cap is £3.8bn, and the P/E is 22 at a share price of 379p. With growth in annual visitor numbers running in double digits and an increasing international rollout of the company’s brands, it may not be long before Merlin gets to the front of the queue for entry into the FTSE 100
onething: I try to ignore the colours (although it is difficult as they are ... in colour), and concentrate on one thing ... is it high relative volume and a falling price? Clearly high volume and rising price is correspondingly good.Where do people thing these red sells are going to? MMs can only hold so many on their books, and if so they are doing that for a reason. If they find they are accumulating too many (as they have an obligation to buy in order to make a market) you will find the share price falls to the point where buyers come back in to take them off their hands.
onething: It is the age old problem of having a colour coded trade list. It seems the majority are indeed sells being at the lower end of the spread, but the trade screen is not showing the corresponding buy (yet) as these are certainly being accumulated as evidenced by the share price not falling. It has been steady all day. Maybe the worked order has been filled now as the price has fallen a little in the last half hour.
