dr knowledge: Cromw3ll - MCRO have been involved in the Cloud space for ages, but I agree, our focus has been on managing & developing existing legacy systems (i.e. saving the client the substantial cost/hassle of buying new) whereas AWS focus is on providing & hosting the platform for cloud deployment. Now we have joined forces, if anything it decreases the Likelihood of MCRO clients buying new as they now have a one-stop shop from data room to cloud. This benefits both us & AWS.
dr knowledge: planit2 - I'm no expert, but basically AWS is predominantly a hosting service, whereas MCRO operate & manage the licences. One of MCRO's key revenue sources in this part of the business comes from its Enterprise Server platform which basically is an application deployment environment for IBM mainframes. Enterprise Server enables clients to modernize and integrate their mainframe apps (big chunk of MCRO's income). It also afford MCRO clients flexibility across Linux and Window platforms either in a discrete environment set up (old), or virtual as on AWS (new). AWS is therefore an add-on service for both existing MCRO customers & those who will come to MCRO from AWS. AWS does not replace MCRO's role, it simply enhances it.

rochdae: Never understood the matching long theory. If you are short 10% with matching longs at 10% surely you have no position at all. Makes more sense if you have a different hedge for example a convertable bond etc.. but that's another story. Anyway, there's time to short and time to buy. If the recovery is on track the share price will go up. If it isn't it won't. So that's the bet here. I think results will be as indicated in the trading statement. What's key is the outlook for sales and margins. I expect the recovery in margins to continue to around 42% in the outlook with more moderation in sales decline. I'm not expecting a divi. More important to get debt down to 2x ebitda. That's the standard metric that will improve mcro's credit profile... Anyway, 4 weeks to wait.
martinfrench: cassini, its miles better than that i'm afraid...... 0 debt cash in bank of about $60 million as of last results at current pgm prices, about $30 million profit a quarter so thats a company with mkt cap of £200 million earning £100 million profit a year with $60 million in the bank. there are NO other companies like this, and while you have missed some of the rise, us on the slp board fully expect this to go at least double what it is now, but it is a bit of a slow mover. oh, and 1.6% normal dividend plus a special dividend next yr if metal prices stay high, which they have pgm's the place to be, far and away beat silver, gold and yes i am a mcro holder before the comments come in.... dyor of course.....
montyhedge: It will be a small dividend I would imagine, they can easily afford it, income funds would come back, income investors may dip a toe, of course they shunned the shares. Micro Focus over the last 10 years been a fantastic dividend payer.Some funds can't invest if no dividend at all. Probably why the bears went short, knowing there was force sellers.When they at the last minute pulled the superb 58.3c dividend, that was the bell ringing moment to sell.My trading strategy is buy the dips, sell into rallies. Worked for me.
rochdae: I disagree all stocks recover. Some do, many just go bust. But mcro is a huge cash generating machine in a sector that in a sad way is benefitted by the virus. Costs set to drop dramatically.The market average for software co's is around 45%. If mcro can get there on revenues of 3 billion that's a massive lift in profit. 200 million compared to last year alone. Roch
thornintheside: I'm long here mainly due to the low enterprise value compared to earnings; £1.3bn market cap plus debt of £3.2bn which I make approx £4.5bn total value with earnings of around $800m, ie a p/e of about 5.5 which seems very very low. A p/e of 10 would be low for this sector so I reckon it's entirely likely we'll get to a £4.8bn market cap in a week or two, ie 3.5 times the current share price and back where this share price was in January. If they pay out anything like the same dividend policy as for last year ($1.16) a re-instated dividend could be 80p, translating to 25% of the current share price! They say it's under review, but the policy as I understand it for MCRO was to NOT keep too much cash on the balance sheet.
dplewis1: Lol.. FTSE goes up, MCRO goes down.. FTSE goes down, MCRO goes down. Nasdaq goes up, MCRO goes down.. Nasdaq goes down, MCRO goes down. I didn't really pay much attention to the stats module at university but I'm sure I've found a pattern
clunes100: Even post covid we are still around the all time low since 2007, the current price does not make sense the upside has to be worth a punt. Perhaps we should email the press office to get some decent email/RNS out to help stop this share price drift. I notice that several times in the past MCRO have made a bonus dividend in the October/November timeframe, perhaps we'll see a sudden return of the dividend to repay long termers - always hopeful, if not a little frustrated by MCRO's current share price
clunes100: The non payment of a dividend has made the balance sheet stronger which is surely good news and allowed the repayment of some debt. The cash and long term management of debt facilities combined with cash generation and a low sp, also increases the possibility of a take over - potentially good news. I know MCRO has been seen as dividend/income share but short term the BoD's quick actions post Covid have strengthened the company and made it more resilient to market or virus shocks. In time, I hope the dividend returns but based on a sound balance sheet. What we need is further good news in terms of new contracts, decent sets of figures, along with director buys, buybacks and revival of the dividend which will all help the share price The US Tech stock sell off is a concern although the us price is still 2.75% above the UK price even after a fall yesterday, there could be a negative effect today as we go into the weekend but again that depends on the markets understanding of MCRO's business model which is based on embedded software and long term contracts, hence the decent cash flow. Money coming out of shares usually needs somewhere else to go let's hope that yesterday's RNS encourages it in this direction!
