Trump is on his way to engineering a recession in the USA , so after that.....

Aleman, why do you think recession is coming? Quarterly growth figures are positive and all the PMI surveys are over 50 so still expansion.

fenners66 - you are going off forecasts from before the results. The extra investment is likely to see lower forecasts for EPS. It could be offset by the first two ABSs starting to generate returns but analysts tend to be conservative on new sources of revenue - so I'd expect 16p earnings and 8p dividend and the market is in a bad mood for valuations. If we look at operating cashflows, the multiple is about 5 times and likely to fall as revenue picks up and start-up costs fade. That is cheap for a business that can usually have high payouts. It's about half price. Hopefully EPS and the dividend will recover in a few years to make that cheap price more evident. Don't expect it soon, though. It will probably be a good buy for those prepared to sit through a recession and take a 5-6% yield (at 8p dividend) while they wait, but be prepared for the shares to go lower once the recession becomes more evident.

Huge over reaction. NAH management are a little too open and honest. They could have just left the dividend as it was to avoid all this negativity. They could have left establishing the 3rd ABS until the financials started to normalise. Those would have been short term measures to appease the market. The decisions they have taken are the correct ones for the business going forward. Very short sightedness rules the day again on NAH. I imagine the shares will recover a fair chunk of losses once management go around meeting shareholders. At some point the market will start looking forward past regulatory changes. Had thought we had reached that point a few months ago but apparently not. Once we come through the other side the company should be back to generating close to 100% fcf conversion and earnings will be much higher. Share price likely to as well.

On the face of it the earnings look ok - but they are signalling that these earnings are not translating into cash - and may not do so until 2020 at the earliest as that is when they plan to look again at the dividend policy. I get why that has spooked the market as - say - the warning signal of CLLN was that for all the reported profits they were not translating into cash. Now where other companies are reporting failure to turn profit into cash the market is attaching more risk weighting.

Hmm, dunno. The two reasons for institutional support are now not as compelling. You’ve got a contraction in eps, and you’ve got a contraction in divvy yield as well. I can see this hovering around current levels, or even dropping back to September lows in run up to April divvy record date (with a bit of a short term bounce leading up to that date, given yield on just the final divvy alone is around 7% or more at moment), but after that, I can see a gradual selloff as funds rebalance their portfolios. If future divvy is going to be based on 2* earnings cover, then total 2k18 divvy likely to be around 10p total, so interim divvy prob around the 3p mark, and final around 7p next year, and that’s assuming no earnings growth next year of course. With divvy and earnings contractions likely during next couple of years, funds have less reason to stay as heavily invested in Nahl as they are at present, hence I see a bit of a sell off over an extended period after April. The one good point is that trading still seems fairly strong. L.

Yep, one to watch over the next month. If the price keeps dropping, there could be potential for a bounce leading up to the 27th April divvy record date. Final 10p divvy would have a great yield vs current share price. The more it drops now, the greater the yield....short term trading opp perhaps? L.

Yes, I agree with that. Investors want a bigger margin of safety in uncertain times.

It looks like the market is not happy with further investment. The cost of creating a third ABS will reduce this year's forecasts to maybe 16p and the increase in cover will see the dividend drop to maybe 8p. This should create a base for strong growth thereafter as start-up costs drop out and profits from ABSs increase but regulatory uncertainty continues. The sharp drop in the share price seems harsh but this market is running scared of recession and such falls are being seen all over the place.

Yes, solid but hopefully this will establish a base for further progress this year. Final Results NAHL, the leading UK consumer marketing business focused on the UK legal services market, announces its Final Results for the year ended 31 December 2017. Financial Highlights -- Trading performance in line with expectations -- Revenue up 2.5% to £51.9m (2016: £50.6m) -- As expected, underlying operating profit down 19.4% to £14.5m (2016: £18.0m) -- Profit before tax of £12.4m (2016: £15.8m) -- EPS ahead of expectations at 21.7p (2016: 27.0p) -- Recommended final dividend of 10.6p, a total dividend for the year of 15.9p (2016: 19.05p) Operational Highlights -- A year of progress with continued evolution of Personal Injury (PI) division -- Establishment and operational launch of two ("ABS") ventures, with early signs encouraging -- Successful relaunch of National Accident Helpline brand, generating positive results -- Critical Care division ahead of last year with continued growth in market share -- Solid trading performance from Residential Property division against a challenging market backdrop Russell Atkinson, CEO of NAHL, commented:"2017 was a year of change and progress for NAHL as we continued to evolve our Personal Injury (PI) division. We are particularly pleased to have successfully delivered the key elements of our PI strategy with the launch of two ABS ventures, the relaunch of our brand and the delivery of an improved digital capability. These initiatives have given us the insight and experience to lay out a confident vision for the future. Given the success of this first phase, we plan to accelerate our investment by establishing a third ABS to capture the growth opportunity which exists for NAH and further enhancing both our brand and technological capability. Simultaneously we will continue to work closely with our panel law firm partners whilst building in more flexibility into the way we process enquiries helping us to better manage demand. The importance of our other divisions should not be overlooked. Critical Care performed ahead of last year securing a number of high profile strategic business development partnerships which we expect will contribute to growth in the year ahead. Residential Property faced difficult market conditions though performed solidly thanks to our focus on margin and cost. We have started the new financial year in line with Board expectations. 2018 will be a year of transition with further investment to accelerate the PI division's evolution. This additional investment necessitates a change to our dividend policy which will enable us to go into the future with confidence about the Group's prospects."

Our latest magazine looks at some big dividend payers on AIM - and whether they can keep giving. NAHL Group is featured in the magazine which appears on our website.

You sometimes get funny down moves in small caps in the 6 weeks to the end of the tax year. People sell to crystallise gains and losses for the taxman in shares that have moved a lot in the previous year or three. Sometimes they buy back after a month. If they are waiting for a month before tax year end and the shares start to drift, they sometimes sell earlier for gains and later for losses. Seen it happen a lot over the years but it's a bit random. Some small caps do it while others don't. I assume modest falls in this 6 week period are nothing to worry about and they often recover if nothing else changes.

Just the chart playing out, having sold at 192p I'm looking at getting back in today. Hoping for a 160's entry point. Excellent value !!

There was an unexplained downward jump last week, not justified by visible volume, I'm assuming an II seller exiting an illiquid stock. In terms of news, all I could see was a govt cold calling ban coming in, but don't think it affects NAH's business areas...

Tomorrows the day to buy in the 160's. Early morning markdown before a bounce.
