gfrae: The company has the luxury of being able to talk calmly about the economy,prospects etc as it sees them, because it does not care what it's share price is. Not many companies can afford to be downbeat !
thorne3: This is an interesting company in which I have built up a holding over the last few months.The Directors of this business are a canny lot who are not really interested in communicating with the Stockmarket other than at the appointed times.They are more interested in building up and running an efficient operation and I cannot blame them for that.The recent Director share purchases were interesting and I get the impression that at some stage over the next year or so the company could be firing on all cylinders.That would indicate a significant increase in profitability and a proportionate increase in the share price which has gone nowhere for a very long time.Every well run dog has its day.
xdavid: They will send you printed reports if you phone them. There is additional info in them but don't expect anything 'glossy'. WCB, I seem to remember MB being asked once about possibility of getting a company broker for forecasts, etc. and his reply was along the lines of, "why should we pay money for that - the share price will take care of itself." Maybe he is quite happy to just keep buying the shares himself (last buy last March @ £2.94) but at a 26% holding, he can't go too much higher. 3 directors own 44% of the company so it is unlikely to fall prey to a lo-ball takeover. But then that also opens up a whole new possibility for an unwelcome "exit strategy"! At this depressed price, even allowing for the "profits warning", it must be on a current year PE of low 7s, nearly 4% divi. PTNAV of 1.8. Crazy, but what can one do? Without broker coverage it is always likely to be discounted (or just fluctuate wildly as it does).
rivaldo: Agreed wcb. I was away on hols when the IMS came out so couldn't react quickly. On balance the shares are worth holding imo. I'd guess they'll report say 24p-25p EPS and £11m-£12m net cash, which would make this share price pretty cheap. However, I'd never have more than a small holding for the reasons we're all familiar with - illiquidity, lack of narrative from the company, lack of "City" support via brokers etc etc...
darlocst: Have been a bit concerned about MSI given the weaker outlook in the FY results, a strong H2 weighting comment is often a pre-cursor to a profit warning a few months down the line, plus the falling share price. However the interims today have removed that worry for me, especially at the current share price. The numbers were lower than last year as expected but the second half will be strong: "the Board has a good measure of confidence as to the full year outlook for the Group, subject to there being no further deterioration in the global economy that could adversely affect our two industrial engineering divisions." Also these two comments caught my eye, as they point to potential for good growth in the medium term: "Most crucially, the Group order intake in the period was some 80% higher at the end of October, compared to that received in the corresponding period last year and currently the value of orders on hand is some 25% higher than at last year end." "'Defence' is now looking forward with confidence to a much stronger second half year. The majority of orders are already in hand to achieve the expected full year revenue and there are a number of very interesting new business prospects emerging from around the world."
rivaldo: Excellent spot again Mr T. Have MSI announced this yet - of course not :o)) At least I don't recall it. The only way MSI ever announce anything is if they're forced to. Talking of which....I notice that whilst on hols there's been director buying of another 3k shares at 255p: Director buying at MSI has invariably been a good clue as to future news and share price movements.
paqman: X div today and share price up.
rivaldo: I notice that Shell has today received approval to purchase 253 more petrol stations: Since Shell is a major customer of Global-MSI's - and in fact won "an award from SHELL Oil Europe for safety innovation that earned us the Best Contractor HSSE Award for 2011" - this should ensure loads more conversion and update work for MSI in the coming months and years. Worth noting that MSI made 36.8p adjusted EPS last year, against the current 240p share price - a historic P/E of 6.5. It also had over £10m net cash at the year end. Looking forward to my 6.5p final dividend - the cut-off date for being on the record books is next Wednesay the 18th July.
darlocst: Adjusted EPS (MSI don't quote this) is 36.75p. Divi yield is 3% Cash would have been +£2.5m higher if not for property purchase in Poland due to expanding business. Forgings & Petrol Station superstructures increased orders over course of year and defence orders have increased post year end. Gross margin increased considerably in H2. Share price below where director was buying recently. Next update : IMS in early AUG
mr. t: I like the progress the MSI share price is making....they're still too cheap imho
