jeff h: I been buying here lately. Last weeks RNS was positive with Numis increasing their forecasts on the back of it. Trading Update next week. Beaufort positive as well:- Morses Club (MCL.L, 119.00p) – Buy The UK's second largest home collected credit ('HCC') lender, on Friday announced that the Group has secured the addition of one of the UK's leading high street lenders to its existing loan facility (the 'Facility'). Sitting alongside the existing funder, Shawbrook Bank, this has increased the overall revolving facility from £25m to £40m. The Facility has also been extended from its existing expiry date of March 2019 to August 2020. This is strategic in respect of supporting growth strategy of the business, providing the certainty of long-term funding and enabling Morses Club to continue its expansion plans, taking advantage of the current opportunities in the market place. Our View: The quite dramatic tumble in Morses' share price that took place mid-July to mid-August provides an important buying opportunity. Morses had been lumped together with others in the UK's non-standard finance sector, all of which took a sharp hit as the dominant player, Provident Financial, warned that its Consumer Credit Division ('CCD') had been severely impacted by disruption from its migration to a new operating model. Shortly after this, early in August, Non-Standard Finance plc also provided its own half year results, from which several commentators suggested as NSF was successfully stealing market share from what they suggested were various sleepy peers, including Morses Club. The interpretation was wrong in both cases. Firstly, the hit on Provident Financial's CCD division was largely self-inflicted. Its move from commissioned agents to contract staff, while also seeking to migrate away from the bottom rung of accounts, had been badly planned and effectively handed significant numbers of active agents to competitors. A real own goal! As far as Non-Standard Finance itself is concerned, the Company continues to make progress, although this comes at a cost; divisional impairment at the H1 stage rose to 37.5% (compared to 28.7% last year), with the loan book rising 16% despite customer numbers falling 10%. After central costs, NSF's Loans-at-Home is still not generating a profit while quoting their number of new agents as rising by 229 following Provident's loss something like 250. Morses, by comparison, is expected to add up to 600 new agents by its February 2018E year end and Friday's announcement detailing its new larger revolving facility, demonstrates management's confidence that activity levels set to deliver a step improvement. Yes, there will be some short-term costs for this expansion but, as Beaufort explained back in a note on 21st June, the anticipated squeeze in margins will be more than compensated in the P&L just one further year out. The Group's trading update, expected on 31st August, is likely to outline management's confidence in its strategy going forward. Far from being 'sleepy', Morses' current push is expected to deliver an impressive leap in both revenues and earnings by year-end February 2020. Beaufort has re-set its P&L projections in response to Friday's announcement, which now places the shares on 2019E and 2020E earnings multiples of 10.0x and 7.2x, together with yields of 6.1% and 8.3% respectively. Much too cheap considering an operation that this year should deliver 24% ROE on a P/BV of just 2.5x. Beaufort retains a price target for Morses Club of 155p/share along with its Buy rating.

glasshalfull: I've also had a nibble here & see an investment in lenders such as Morses (MCL) & Non Standard Finance (NSF) as counter-cyclical investments, that should do well irrespective of the underlying economic conditions. Good thread here with plenty of links to interviews, presentations and the comprehensive Hardman research note. Of course, early stage collection businesses such as these have to contend with increasing regulation but neither are classified as providing high cost short term credit (such as Wonga & other pay day lenders). Page 26 of the Hardman note provides good commentary surrounding this. NSF is in the buy/build stage, offering greater risk but forecasted stronger earnings growth, while MCL offers steadier growth and prospect of a 6% dividend yield this year. Numis had this to say in October 2016 (share price same as today): - "...first half pre-tax profit exactly in line with our forecast of £8.6m. The income margin expanded to 83.4% from 80.0% as the loan duration shortened and this drove a corresponding increase in the impairment charge which was £10.6m against our forecast of £10.3m. Operating costs continue to be impacted by investment spend but nevertheless there was an improvement in the overall group Cost:Income ratio to 58.1% from 60.9% with underlying costs being slightly lower than forecast. The ROE (25.4%) remains very strong given the lack of leverage and the group's RoA is a sector leading at 19.5% and is well up on the 18.5% reported last year. The group is delivering on all of its key strategic objectives with strong territory builds of 114 in the period (the full P&L benefit of this growth should be reflected in H2) compared to the 68 achieved in the first half of last year. This growth increased agent commissions but we view this as a temporary burden while the new agents establish themselves. Card issuance is running ahead of plan having already exceeded their full year target of 5,000 and is now likely to be c.10,000 at the end of the year. Acquisitions were slightly weaker than forecast in H1 at £3.3m against our estimate of £3.5m but they have more than made up for this with £3.2m so far in H2 (timing is everything) and a further £1.6m of pipeline. The dividend was slightly better than our forecast of 2.0p at 2.1p with the dividend remaining a core part of the group's strategy of returning value to shareholders. We are modestly revising up our underlying pre-tax profit forecasts for next year to £19.1m from £19.0m and to £21.1m from 21.0m for the year after. We continue to believe Morse Club offers good value trading at a PE of 10.3x and a growing dividend yield of 6.0% based on next years forecasts". --- Both MCL & NSF have missed out in the market rally & look decent value IMHO. Kind regards, GHF

optimist at large: RCTurner2 The price of 85p for 5,000 shares is because the NMS (normal market size) is only 1,000 shares. I have found that usually there is no problem, buying or selling, up to 2,500 shares but for larger quantities a premium is normally required unless the MMs have excess stock. I think a major factor in the recent share price rise has been an increase in interest following the fairly significant directors' purchases. The share is somewhat illiquid which tends to make it very responsive to changes in demand. The market cap at today's close is still only about £7M. which is less than the current value of their known investments and cash even after excluding RED. I spoke to the FD today to try to find out if their RED shareholding had decreased but, as expected, got nowhere. However he sounded bullish and thought shareholders would be pleased with current developments in due course.

optimist at large: Yet another director buy today even though RED is further down. In the 'good old days' a MCL share used to be about 80% of the value of a RED share, its now about300% !

goldfinger: Mountcashel own 4.7% of Redstone Telecom. Redstone have just been handed potentially half a million customers in a deal with Natwest Bank PLC. Redstone share price has gone up by 50% this week. Mountcashel share price has stayed static, though some bug buys (relative to MCL) goign through today. Most interesting is the news in the last hour that Ian Hislop has made his first purchase as an Executive Director. I am not qualified to give advice and I am not saying BUY. I will leave that for you to work out, but I do own the shares myself. You heard it here first. Thank you.
