purchaseatthetop: Yes is REALLY worth listening to you. Good prediction a couple of weeks ago: sr2day - 29 Mar 2021 - 10:36:51 - 10782 of 10898 Micro Focus International - MCRO on the other hand if it closes below 500p this week,then we may see 420p again before update. Guru.....I was thinking exactly the same thing. Share price has settled and now ready for next push. I have realised there is not going to be a price drift. Getting closer to the trading update.
rochdae: The AWS deal according to brokers will add at least another 300 million to revenue. That turns mcro into a company with revenue growth going forward, not one just arresting revenue decline. That completely changes the valuation metrics imo. Hence the recent 25% rise in their share price. Much more to come imo.
scepticalinvestor: Well that is the trouble with being contrarian. But it is also the reason that my MCRO avg is half the current share price - buying when everyone was giving the stock away
purchaseatthetop: Amazon have bought into MCRO for the cloud storage/computing angle provided by Vertica. What is the chance of AWS simply buying MCRO, stripping out Vertica for itself, and leaving MCRO as a stand alone business. The main competitor for Vertica seems to be Snowflake which has a $61b valuation. Ever felt that MCRO is hiding its light under a mountain of bushels?
watfordhornet: So just to clarify - today is ex Divi. We should expected a fall in share price today equiv to divi so in effect the 1.6% gain plus the divi amount makes today very good.I know HSBC is ex Divi today and the share price has reacted as expected - downGood day for MCRO
brucie5: purchaseatthetop10 Mar '21 - 11:54 - 10626 of 10631 0 0 0 Brucie....I chat to *Miss Fundamentals* for her opinion ----------------------------------------------------------- Ah yes, of course. And on that front i notice that MCRO qualifies for only one Stocko screen atm, which is "Cash Accruals". I'd never noticed it before, but it might appeal to your experience in accountancy. (It's all pretty much Greek to me..) "Cash Accruals is a quality investing strategy inspired by research into the 'accrual anomaly' by American accounting professor Richard Sloan. In company accounts, accruals are adjustments made when revenues have been booked but cash has not yet been received. This screen uses low levels of accruals as a positive quality signal. It looks for companies with a low accrual ratio, where free cash flow is higher than net income and where earnings-per-share is growing. Professor Sloan's research found that: "...firms with relatively high levels of accruals experience negative future abnormal stock returns that are concentrated around future earnings announcements." The research found that companies with small or negative accruals vastly outperform (+10%) those with large accruals. It concluded that investors focus too heavily on earnings and not on cash generation and that the share prices of companies with high accruals are more likely to reverse in future years." Other shares in the screen include POLY, which i hold, and a few other immediate recognisables, such as PLUS, CWK and PFD.
truthandnumbers: post-close there was a near 4% bounce in the ADR price for MCRO on NYSE. Next week is the dividend payout on Friday so a double pop on Monday maybe. Price looks too low to me for $1,2bn profit company paying potentially a 7% divi (assuming final to be about twice the interim) and easily covered, plus a formal tie-up with Amazon Web Services. I agree with PATT's implied thoughts on profits - revenue slowdown was beginning to reverse during the last period. Edn of covid plus AWS revenue could see that actually reverse, as in become growth. That will be a key turning point for MCRO and send the price back to more normal valuation (p/e of 20 anyone?) or maybe ten times todays shareprice. Might be only a year away. Still can't believe a dividend paying profit-making business is priced at 1.5 p/e.
markbelluk: I get... Given the final is always at least the interim @ 11.3p assuming 22.6 final give totals 33.9 33.9/422 = 8% For holder @ 300 share price = 11.3% PS for a private equity given FCF x6 -10 you would be looking at a share price double plus of this?
markbelluk: I get... Given the final is always at least double the interim @ 11.3p assuming 22.6 final give totals 33.9 33.9/422 = 8% For holder @ 300 share price = 11.3% PS for a private equity given FCF x6 -10 you would be looking at a share price double plus of this?
purchaseatthetop: exactly dollars down... I started buying at 218p Bought more at 279p More at levels between 310p and 470p I will continue buying because the dividend will treble IMO and the share price quadruple. Whether the share price drops 10p or 30p now is irrelevant. Buy and hold long
