philanderer: Stock Watch - Nichols Investors have lapped up a trading update from Vimto-maker Nichols, which said sales jumped 6.9 per cent to £142million last year. The UK branch of the business did particularly well, as sales shot up 12.6 per cent to £114.6million. The UK soft drinks market grew 7.4 per cent in 2018. As well as Vimto, which was 110 years old in 2018, Nichols also owns Feel Good drinks, the Levi Roots brand, Sunkist and a range of frozen slushy products. Shares climbed 8.3 per cent, or 120p, to 1560p.
fbrj: Mention on 27 Feb of NICL here - NICL target 1450p: Berenberg initiated coverage on the four UK mid-cap soft drinks manufacturers, highlighting a preference for Britvic and Nichols. “We feel this market is often overlooked by investors due to the lack of absolute growth in the end-markets. However, we believe these businesses score well on several elements relative to our broader UK mid-cap coverage.” The bank said they typically generate strong and stable margins driven by operating efficiencies, they can deploy capital on value-accretive M&A, and they have demonstrated a good level of success by UK and international expansion. It started Britvic and Nichols with a ‘buy’ rating and 850p and 1,450p price targets, respectively. The bank said its preference for these two was mainly due to a combination of a propensity for future EPS upgrades and reasonable valuations. On Britvic, it said EPS momentum was stabilising and there are several areas that could surprise to the upside, such as margin uplift from supply chain investment, Fruit Shoot’s move into the $2bn US multipack market, and the International division returning to profitability. “We believe these upside risks are not reflected in the current 14.3x FY 2016E P/E multiple, which makes the stock the cheapest among soft drinks peers and in the broader consumer sector.” As far as Nichols is concerned, it said recent acquisitions of Feel Good and Noisy Drinks have helped drive strong EPS momentum. In addition, the company generates much higher margins and return on invested capital than most peers.
philanderer: Anyone know what 'corporate' rating means ? "Nichols plc (LON:NICL)‘s stock had its “corporate” rating reissued by analysts at N+1 Singer in a research report issued to clients and investors on Thursday" HTTP://

gohil18: Predictably decent results again. But for God's sake when are they going to do something useful with their big cash pile! Either increase the dividend to get more investor appetite from the mediocre 2%, or more beneficial, make some earnings enhancing acquisitions! Until something fundamental happens, can't help but feel the share price will just stay more or less where it is.
ygor706: Investors here should note that SAB Miller has started to move into overseas soft drinks markets with the announcement of a tie up with a french company to bottle coca cola in Africa. Miller are a big player and could easily mop up a few smaller uk drinks companies over the next 12 months or so ....they have cash to spend,
sagarn: DavR0s: Shame the share price is sliding, but I do consider it over valued at present and I think the market agrees. I'm guessing many investors have become bored too with the lack of any positive share price momentum and are, like you, understandably banking profits. Its a very good company nonetheless and the management are generally excellent, delivering good results. I would be tempted again at around the £8-9 price.
sagarn: Not sure lobby ludd. They haven't done much with the funds from what I can see and that is disappointing. Would like to have seen some value enhancing acquisitions. Think investors are beginning to lose interest as company seems to be plodding along rather than positively accelerating. Without some forward momentum I don't think the growth story here is sustainable and at some point will begin to dip. Plus starting to look expensive. Having held for some time, I sold out.
ygor705: The AG Barr/Britvic situation may be helping Nichols. The new merged entity (if created) looks likely to totally crater the Barr balance sheet so I can't see risk averse investors staying with it.
johnv: Pana, just for the record this got tipped by Momentum Investor that w/e @531p
