meijiman: Yes I would have thought it was a three figure share price. Maybe its too off the radar?
graham1ty: I think things are slowly changing. They do realise they need to communicate better. They are not going to do a MELLO yet, but slowly reaching out to investors. I suspect they have had meetings with research writers, but were not sure whether the cost was worth it. They have issued four RNS in the last year all cross referring to last year’s profit, so giving as good a steer on profits as any brokers note would. They have started the shareholder newsletter, which does not include anything price sensitive, but does add some flavour. I think they realise that NTBR has fallen into the “no news might be bad news” camp, so the share price rises on every RNS, then falls slowly until the next one. They need a general positive reputation, to dry up some of the selling, but also mean there are buyers when stock appears. I think they do “get it” and I hope we will see a little more consideration for shareholders going forward. I think they are as frustrated as anyone that the shares cannot break out of the 70p-80p range despite all the positive news flow
its the oxman: Hopefully with strong trading and good results we will develop some momentum and get some overdue share price strength rather than weakness going forward. But it is small cap so you never know.
leona306a: I would like to give you a little insight into the history of Ntbr.Also my reasons for investing heavily in them.They floated on the stock market in December 2006 at a price of 60p. They soon made several acquisitions and where considered to be a good company who where going a long way. By the end of 2007 the share price was about 170, a three fold gain.Less than a year later the world recession started and Ntbr did not have time to prove itself. The share price dropped 9p in late 2012.All through the recession they made a profit (a small one but never the less a profit) With all this information and the share price at 9p, I considered the merits of the company!A...This is a Yorkshire company....hard working nitty gritty down and down to earth .Family ties and responsibilities.(family comes first).B...It is managed by a hard working local team with many years of local experience....graham Jenkins 40 years..Kieth soulsby 40 years..Stephen Roberts 20 years...John gilstin 30 years...Alan chapman 40years.. And I and can go on and on.C.... A low pe of 6.7......low peg of 0.1...5 out of the last six years of positive growth...acquisitions selected By a team with 100s of years of experience. Can you not buy into this company???
ed_derby: Great to see some comment and debate on the company folowig on from the results... Good to know i'm not the only one who owns shares and has profited from higher profits, higher share price and increasing dividends. I wish my other holdings were doing as well. Davidosh - you're clearly more expert than me on comms ... Are there other AIM companies who you'd call out as meeting your standards for comms and openness? I'm also unclear on what can and can't be disclosed? Shanklin - agreed - I've not seen a forecast ... what do you see as the main risks to the group that could cause a change in profit? Cash seems to be in a good place with repeated (almost sycophantic) shout outs to YB ... They've made an acquisition of a profit generating company and disposed of one that wasn't contributing - and called out they're still on the look out We can judge the weather risk for ourselves ... I'm not quite sure how Carillion fits into their customer/supplier chain ... or if it does at all - but i presume we're over that Taylor20 / Shankin - I agree with you - paragraph is statement if fact ... end of .... reminding us that the management obviously know their obligations and responsibilities ... Looking forward to more comments / debate ... and the dividend going into my Stocks and Shares ISA too :-) I won't be able to make the 9am at Newcastle - but please feel free to pass on my support for the group if anyone is going
exbroker: I agree with you T_I_M the directors should run the company and if done well the share price will look after its self. Given the number of shares the directors own they have every incentive.
this_is_me: I am delighted that the directors spend their time concentrating on running the company rather than trailing around the city and otherwise wasting time. If you want directors that spend their time talking up the value of their share options then invest elsewhere. I am also delighted that the top brass of the company doesn't trail off to London for an AGM jolly wasting time and money. It is also much handier and cheaper to get to Newcastle and stay overnight than it is to get to London, not to mention that the major shareholders, who set up the company live around the Newcastle area. The dividend is currently almost 25% of my purchase price and the share price over 5 times what I paid less than 6 years ago. What is not to like?
graham1ty: NTBR is really struggling to break into new ground. After hitting 90p last June, we have had Nov 2017: “The Boar d is delighted to announce that, as a result of improved trading, profit before tax from continuing operations for H1 FY18, prior to the impact of exceptional items and amortisation costs, is expected to exceed both management expectations and excellent prior period results” Then in Feb 2018: “The Board is delighted to announce that the Group's turnover and adjusted profit before income tax from continuing operations (stated prior to the impact of transaction costs and the amortisation of acquired intangibles, both associated with the acquisition of H Peel & Sons (Holdings) Limited announced in July 2017) are currently ahead of both management expectations and excellent prior year results.” Then in June 2018: “The Group's continuing operations have continued to trade strongly and ahead of management expectations over the second half of the financial year, despite the severe winter weather, particularly during the first three months of 2018. There has also been a positive contribution to results from H Peel & Sons Limited ("H Peel") following its acquisition on 25 July 2017.” So, three positive statements, all indicating results above management expectations. And the share price still struggles to break through 80p
cc2014: I completely sympathise with you Matthew. I see large numbers of stocks these days where the MM's imho have a far larger spread than they did 3 years ago. I would be guessing that they perceive this as great as they can make a large profit. However, it seems to me that part of the outcome is that retail volumes are falling as everyone is put off by the spread. As for the share price of NTBR, I see literally dozens of stocks like this where there seems to be a disconnect between the fundamentals, dividend yield, free cash flow etc. and what the share price actually is. I know as I have a far few and my only resolution is to wait for the market to stop being irrational or collect my dividends along the way, accept a decent dividend yield, shrug my shoulders and trust that eventually the fundamentals become so irrational that capital growth will follow. I've seen it all before. Eventually the market will correct and we will all be wondering why we didn't buy more when it was staring us in the face. Trouble is in the meantime we have to wait for an unspecified period of time before things sort themselves out. History shows me this tests my patience to the extreme as it can be years. I rather hope it won't be years this time, although I feel like we are already at least 2 years into this irrational phase. It feels like it's turning. Watch for the £400m market cap stocks which are floundering at crazy prices to move first.
interceptor2: I haven't often seen a company so undervalued when compared with other companies in the same sector. Perhaps this can be partly explained by having no brokers covering the stock, and hence no future estimates. I took a closer look at all stocks in the same sector as NTBR, the sector average P/E is 18.8 versus 6.04 for NTBR. Alumasc ALU, has the nearest valuation to NTBR, and is as close a company I can see in regards to UK exposure, net debt and services. So I used ALU to compare valuations.( NXR are closest to valuation, but due to products and geographic coverage I can't compare,) NTBR, net margins = 3.63%, PSR = 0.22, Finance cost = 22.5% of op profit. ALU, net margins = 3.56%, PSR = 0.39, Finance cost = 16% of op profit. The only ratio that is better for ALU is their net debt is lower than NTBR, hence the lower percentage for finance costs. But ALU net debt stayed the same in the last full year, where NTBR reduced by 16%. The NTBR share price would have to increase by 90% to reach the same valuation as ALU, which I can't see any justification for. Unless the markets knows some information that I don't? But with Radmat increasing their holdings recently, I feel that the building sector is still strong. I can only conclude that NTBR are just one of those extreme undervaluations that the market throws up sometimes.
