rochdae: Still too much cash going to shareholders here. On the back of a billion going to shareholders come next year. But the key is that the business seems to be back on track. Get margins to mid 40's and the story is a 30 pound plus share price. Anyway, I continue to buy any dips... seems to be working quite well.
losses: So is Micro Focus a better choice? Its own share price is also down 52% since a year ago, the damage being done in March after it released yet another profit warning due to integration problems concerning its recently-acquired Hewlett Packard Enterprises' (HPE) division.Now trading has been better of late, the tech titan advising this week that it has seen "improved revenue trajectory in the second half of the year" and, as a consequence, commenting that it would hit the upper end of its guided 6-9% sales rise (at constant currencies) for the year to October.There's no guarantee that HPE won't throw up additional problems further down the line. But arguably, these risks are baked into Micro Focus's low, low forward P/E ratio of 8.1 times for the new period. What's more, the projected 106 US cent per share dividend for fiscal 2019 is covered 2 times by anticipated earnings, bang on the widely-regarded safety benchmark
rochdae: Also, total return to shareholders forecast 15-20%. Good divi yield. Free cash flow expected to be 1 billion in the next few years. 70% recurring business. Share buyback. Return of value of around 1 billion early next year is my prediction. The problem was indigestion with the HP purchase. Anyway, share price unduly hit. So I add on weakness going into a strong period for the markets... Roch
umitw: Now that we sold out , the share price will probably head north to 1500p...! Lol
rochdae: Bit stronger today. All we need is a return to a bit of normality in the market and we'll be back through 14 imo. As for the Elliott theory, they were not a major holder only 5%. For a ftse 100 you could buy or sell that amount on the day. No need for any manipulation. Of course the buyback was to improve the share price. Further return of value coming in the new year is my bet.
cxs1: Now being really cynical..why was a buy back started when it was, yet no definitive statement as to a special divi? Possibly because the regular divi had recently totally failed to ignite the SP, and because Elliott flagged they wanted out and the board had to oblige to let them out with support, to avoid crushing the share price. Tactics to manipulate the price up in lieu of strong news. Nobody will really buying heavy here in this market as its not the bargain it was, and plenty of high quality high yeilding substitutes coming into view with 25% discounts.
rochdae: Share price below where it was with the HP news in 2016. Surely can't all be discounted because of a 12 month delay ... 2.5 billion coming soon... Further buybacks or special divi . As long as they are buying back 9 million a day I'm happy to hold.
umitw: Shorters have to cover their position by buying back .MCRO is hoovering up excess shares in the market.There won't be many shares to buy when the shorts close their position IMO. Hopefully the share price will surge. With a bit of luck! :-)
losses: Merger stumble At the end of last month, my colleague Roland Head labelled IT group Micro Focus International (LSE: MCRO) one of the 3 worst dividend stocks of 2018.It's easy to see why. After shelling out $8.8bn to buy the software business of Hewlett Packard Enterprise, growth has evaporated. In March, the firm told investors that sales would drop by nearly 10% for the year, four times faster than expected. Nevertheless, Micro Focus's dividend seems safe. City analysts have revised their growth forecasts for the company lower, but even on these lower numbers, it looks to me as if there's plenty of room to maintain the current payout. It's expected to print EPS of $1.87 this year, with a dividend of about $1 per share. These figures put the stock on a forecast P/E of 8.2 with a prospective dividend yield of 6.4%. It appears as if all the bad news is already reflected in Micro Focus's share price. Now could be the time to buy.
ih_127877: BARCLAYS TELLS INVESTORS IN MICRO FOCUS NOT TO GET CARRIED AWAY (ShareCast News) - Keep the faith! was the message from Barclays for investors in Micro Focus following the prior day's faith-shattering near halving in the company's share price. The analysts conceded they had underestimated the "level of disruption" that the acquisition of HPE Software would throw up and - above all - the market's tolerance for mis-execution. Fresh changes at the helm of the company were also unsettling, they admitted, but went on to add that to question the health of the company's balance sheet was simply going too far. Hence, they reiterated their 'overweight' recommendation and 1,500p target price. "Further management change is unsettling, but the debate has seemingly moved to the health of the balance sheet. This, for us, is a step too far and despite the challenges we believe MF remains a highly profitable and cash-generative business," they said. Indeed, the company's leverage was headed below 3%, they believed. "SUSE is a valuable asset, especially relevant at the current share price and, based on just 10x our low-end FY19E EPS, we see fundamental upside to our revised PT of £15 - OW." Deutsche Bank on the other hand appeared to be rather less positive, slashing its target price for the shares from 2800p to 780p.
