analysts talking about downgrading 5-10% for next year so stock will remain under pressure 300p looks like a decent short term target

OUTLOOK profit for 2008/9 same as 2007/8 or around £ 78m interest cover 3.1 (down from 3.4) £200m + borrowing headroom NO reduction in utilisation rates or rental rates in either UK or Spain (Spain fleet up 14% on year was 17% at half year, they had expected 12% for year in march) Residuals have fallen from peak which accounts for undershoot of expected profit. Go not a bad set of results, if they can make that again in the current year they are very undervalued, though the growth phase is over for a while. Would not be surprised to see them do share buyback at current share price and before goes ex div as the dividend rate is in excess of the interest they would pay for borrowing the money for the coming year.

A lot of debt, a high dividend and high capital expenditure. Several acquisitions. Most of the tangible assets are second hand vans.

Go Well tomorrow we will see if 1) 2007/08 hits targets 2) Where current year is going 3) If debt interest is well covered 4) If NTG will continue to pay good dividends Thankfully I own my shares they are paid for I can wait for a good return, if the details are good tomorrow I may well buy more we will see.

did you see tan, i had 10k ready to lob at it this morning, thought it was gonna shoot up to 40 ish, my buy at 29.5 was not processed and i took that as a sign, lol, for once i seem to have been right, that would have brought my average down to about 50p, but have decided against it, basically thinking all my others are getting a bit of a beating at the minute, nothings making sense at present, its better in the bank i reckon at present, so sent it back, kinda figured i've lost enough for now with this and tan. Will wstch with bated breath tomorrow, on both, must say i'm more confident here than with tan.

The Southern Cross warning and stock down 66% is pretty shocking and all highly leveraged companies will be hit by association. Right now gearing up to invest in the Spanish construction market looks to have been one of the all time worst investment decisions of all time. Worse than this the performance of the current share price asks some uncomfortable questions about whether someone seems to know something and has not shared with the market?

Altium and Panmure Gordon both renewed their BUY recommendation on NTG today at 368p (BUT both have been saying buy before at much higher share price - so they do get it wrong!) Altium has a new price target of 450p Panmure did not give one

G0 I opened a large position in TAN, but like you I thought it was a good buy at much higher prices so just hoping to cut my losses. I may have just doubled them!!

Go They do not need finance, no debt, cash at year end about £29m. If they needed to borrow they could borrow from their usual bank for extra working capital. New factories could be rented (Vigo already is). So unless someone has cooked the books can't see there being a financial problem. I topped up (now have no spare cash outside my ISA)

lol...ouch...whats the crack, as i posted on there, i'm 'reliably' informed its to do with a finance deal they had lined up collapsing and them now on the hunt for further finance, but looks like it has to be more than that, you topping up, or bailing oot ?
