planit2: @Dr knowledge & @Cromw3ll I agree with both those last two posts,my original point was that the announcement wouldn't result in an earnings increase to MCRO large enough to move the share price up. In order to counter the view that it was worth the value of the company going up by 20% I was pointing out the downside too. I also want Micro Focus to be developing their own cloud and 21st century products they can make a lot of money on. They won't make money on AWS cloud hosting. I also can't understand why a company would use Amazon who are analysing the data into and out of the cloud to find new business opportunities. Like telling your competitor you have a really great profitable product and giving them the plans to make it.
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.
rochdae: I gave up on commodity plays some 20 years ago. With the exeception of Pog last year, which was really a technology recovery play. Not bad, went up 500%. The problem is timescale, the underlying capex and opex and the constant need to raise capital etc. So with these type of companies everytime there is a sniff of good news they tap shareholders for more cash. That's nonsense. To make money in the market you need the company to give you cash. That's why commodity plays just tread water for years. Many never really make any money at all. For me the only thing I'm interested in are turnaround plays that are highly cash generative. Like mcro. Could quite easily see a return to 1000 plus here in 10 weeks ... You could wait a decade for a mining company to rise 20%.. Each to their own though. I see a rapid turn in the share price soon... Roch
rochdae: The bet here is not on the share price movement but on whether MF can continue to turn the business around. I think they can given the favourable conditions they are now in. If they do, the share price will follow .. Stressing on daily movements, Brexit, the Dow, trading ranges and shorters will only send you to an early grave imo... Roch
lowtrader: Yahoo finance is showing MCRO price of 507, up 75.
planit2: Not much of a deal really, sounds more like a PR exercise for AWS to me, they are saying their cloud can handle large corporations. Micro already has most of these companies as clients so they are probably going to lose as much revenue (mainframe support expensive and not much competition) as gain for these migrations. Also if it was big for MCRO they would have done their own press releases or RNS if it was actually worth 20% added to their share price. But the publicity is great for Micro as it has been so undervalued for this year, we are just having a correction to where it should be, even with the recovery risks that still need to be priced in. I still see a pull back after the news is digested and the share price has stopped rising, but that could be at 450, 500, 550, your guess is as good as mine.
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.
rochdae: Mcro share price gets very excited when margins rise given revenue of 3 billion. This could run for quite a while. Cash of 700 million, too. Way too cheap given the turnaround.. Roch
timmy11: share price goes down...we are going into oblivion share price goes up best thing since sliced bread
