yump: The share price is just indicating a low rating for much lower earnings and on the other hand it will not have anything to do with future earnings until such time as future earnings can be pencilled in with any confidence.
fenners66: I am sure , had I come on here lauding dealy as some sort of special situations / recovery guru investor telling of his skill and judgement in spotting and exploiting value - you would have had an entirely different comment for me. CLLN and MTC have several things in common - and I have not done any research on MTC yet. I have a vague passing interest and have read headlines over the years... But , 1, share price has tanked 2, dealy looks like he has put his money in 3, debt rising 4, profits falling Is there a pension deficit here? Have they paid out dividends they could not afford Is their market subject to structural competition? Just got to be careful - I agree - dealy is one person who has shown himself to be careless and refused to listen to reason. Draw your own conclusions - but the parallels are there to be seen - of all the investments on all the worlds markets he starts posting on this one.......
yump: That depends whether you are looking at the business or the share price. The financials were recovering until this year with the overseas slowdown and now the recent update with UK consumer sales slowing, which has hit at what you could say is exactly the wrong time. You can blame management for that I guess if you like, but it seems a little illogical. Previously they posted increased profits on reduced revenue, so that was going in the right direction. That was since Mark Newton-Jones appointment in July 2014 and the strategy starting Nov. 14. My reading of the situation is that most funds and pi's have lost interest in MTC regardless of what's going on, because of the rejected t/o offer (disappointed folk wanting to get out), the surprise profit warning after Christmas 2013 and the length of time its taken for someone to get a grip. So I think the jury is out on this particular management/strategy and I certainly wouldn't say they can't deliver - as it was looking promising, up until their market hiccupped. Previously it was MTC at fault. (quite interesting looking back at the number of share holding announcements during the US offer - that sort of history can play havoc with the share price - once the offer is rejected)
terminated: At the end of the day you cant realistically make a profit selling 100-300 £'s worth of shares. The only logical reason is basic share price manipulation.
scaramanga1906: The steepenibg of the chart here is similar to what we saw in mid 2014 when the share price doubled. Of course the same happened in the opposite direction later that year so it can work both ways, but I think that was due to the refinancing which won't be happening again. Shows what can happen to MTC when the market takes a liking to it though.
whymps2: Mark Newton-Jones purchase of £50k shares mentioned in this weekend's Money section of the FT. It points out that he has doubled his money from his acquisition in the rights issue, mentions the progress made and that the share price has recently dipped due to weaker international sales.
neil1pat: is this company making any profit yet? Can we expect a dividend this year or just a recovery in share price?
cockneyrebel: Trading update tomorrow. Won't be bells and whistles yet imo - it usually takes 18 months for anew boards actions to show tangible results imo. But the share price starts to reflect improvements well before they become fully apparent imo. What would be nice is to hear the improvements in Q3 have been maintained or built on slightly. The real benefits should kick in in 6 month from less high cost shops in the UK reducing and more, larger out of town stores with lower costs taking over. The share price tends to look forward tho so as long as things are still improving I think the share price will start to reflect better expectations down the line imo. All imo. CR
westdean: Greenday, you seem very knowledgeable about mtc and this prompts me to ask you this: if the business gets turned around in 3-4 years then what is the share price likely to do from here till then? Usually if the share price does not have a definite direction in which to travel, then it ends up coming down. Is this what is likely to happen to the share price? Do you have any thoughts on this?
typo56: So what happens with my new rights shorts now? Will they fluctuate with they general share price? So if the share price drops by another 48p can I then close out to break even? Yes, they will track roughly 125p below the MTC share price. If that price falls below 125p then the nil paid shares are worthless (apart from stamp duty and dealing charges, why would anyone pay 125p to take up their rights when they could buy MTC lower in the market?). If you don't close your nil paid short position it will be closed after the shares become fully paid on 27 Oct. How much you get charged will depend to some extent on the generosity of your spread bet/CFD provider, but you feel it ought to show some linkage to the price they ended trading at! I'm sure if you ask them it will be made beautifully opaque!
