spob: Ocado's share price boom is no indicator of long-term success Nils Pratley Value has risen on the back of smart tie-ups, but rapid expansion brings huge risks Tue 10 Jul 2018 You could have bought shares in Ocado at 960p at 9am on Tuesday and sold them before the close of play at £11, a tidy return of almost 15%. What happened? Nothing of substance. Investors merely decided that a couple of unexpected charges in the half-year figures, including £9m to cover management’s likely winnings under an old incentive scheme, was not worth worrying about. Then they returned to the pleasant pastime of imagining how Ocado will become “the Microsoft of retail”, as one City analyst puts it. Such is the impossibility of valuing Ocado these days. The shares have almost quadrupled in value in the past 12 months. The transformation has happened because chief executive Tim Steiner, ridiculed for years for failing to deliver the promised licensing tie-ups with foreign supermarket chains, has finally delivered in spades. Groupe Casino in France, Sobeys in Canada, ICA in Sweden and then the biggest of the lot, Kroger in the US, have all signed up to use Ocado’s know-how. Trying to decipher what those deals are worth, however, is an exercise in piling assumption upon assumption. It is obviously true that selling smart technology and robots to other people should be many times more lucrative that competing with Tesco, Sainsbury’s et al in the humdrum business of delivering groceries in the UK. Yet Ocado Solutions – the exciting half of the business – reported losses of £2m on revenues of £63m in the half-year. The hard work lies ahead. It will be several years before the financial picture, and the true size of the cash flows, becomes clear. Amazon is living proof that a good retail “transformation” story can compound and become huge. And Ocado, which is essentially selling an anti-Amazon kit to frightened grocers, is clearly in a sweet spot. But a £7bn-plus valuation already? The company is worth what investors are willing to pay, of course, but that is taking a lot on trust. Ocado has four automated “customer fulfilment centres” in the UK but is now committed to building 23 overseas. The execution risks must be enormous.
dbensimon: Is it too late to buy??? What the scope of share price rising further?
dangersimpson2: Given the increasing cash outflow and strong recent share price they were always going to raise money. I'm surprised they are not raising more because debt is still going t increase over tthe next few years. Given the market in the last couple of days it looks Goldman are actually earning their fee for a change. A miss on earning today probably didn't help. Still they will get them away at £4+ today and they probably would have got less than £2 for a raise 3 months ago.
spob: Just wondering What is the statistical chance of a fund raising rns in the next few days on the back of this share price rise ? This company has not had a single year of positive free cash flow in the last decade Got to keep the lights on some how They may as well get shareholders to pay the bills while the love lasts
3rd eye: Ocado Group PLC 14.7% Potential Upside Indicated by Citigroup Posted by: Amilia Stone 12th December 2017 Ocado Group PLC with EPIC/TICKER (LON:OCDO) has had its stock rating noted as ‘Reiterates217; with the recommendation being set at ‘BUY’ this morning by analysts at Citigroup. Ocado Group PLC are listed in the Consumer Services sector within UK Main Market. Citigroup have set their target price at 400 GBX on its stock. This is indicating the analyst believes there is a potential upside of 14.7% from today’s opening price of 348.8 GBX. Over the last 30 and 90 trading days the company share price has increased 93.2 points and increased 39.8 points respectively. The 1 year high stock price is 373.1 GBX while the 52 week low for the share price is 233 GBX. Ocado Group PLC has a 50 day moving average of 297.83 GBX and a 200 day moving average of 288.31. There are currently 630,704,350 shares in issue with the average daily volume traded being 3,497,547. Market capitalisation for LON:OCDO is £2,218,817,826 GBP.
hpcg: Jak - if Ocado does not install anymore CFC's then it can serve London, and whatever is in reach of Andover (Reading, Southampton?). It then has minimal growth to look forward to. Even if they made no capital and research investments at all then the company generates 15.7p per share of operational cash flow. This is slightly declining on an annual basis. At best it can be described as richly valued at the current share price. That said I don't think fundamentals are relevant to the investment case, one needs to follow the actions of the big money and ride the trends they induce.
kestelmill: To me this Director Deal says that the long-awaited licensing deal with another company is NOT imminent. If it was, he wouldn't be able to buy right now as he would be privy to price sensitive information (the licensing deal) that would be set to increase the share price once released. Therefore there is nothing imminent and nothing that is definitely going to happen or even highly likely to happen. Also, £225K is chicken feed to DTB as he gets paid £600K per annum plus a shed-load of share options. I wouldn't read too much into it personally other than that he's optimistic about Ocado. Good on him for that.
oldvic: Is someone finally ready to buy what Ocado is selling? Or should we chalk up a 9 percent jump in shares of the British web grocer to wishful thinking on behalf of investors? Ocado's stock shot up on Monday after reports surfaced it was close to signing a deal to run online sales for U.S. supermarket Publix, an 1,100-store, employee-owned chain with $33 billion in annual revenue. But like previous whispers about tie-ups with Carrefour and Amazon, there's no indication these rumors are true. LONELY GROCER Ocado wants to show it's more than an online grocer at the mercy of Amazon. Instead, it wants to be the Amazon Web Services of the bread aisle, a provider of software and delivery services to big supermarkets around the world.But investors have grown impatient with Ocado. In February 2015, its CEO said it was ready to strike a flurry of deals with grocery stores outside the U.K., with the first one promised by the end of that year. But 2015 came and went without a deal, and the company's share price sank. It didn't help when Amazon announced this past February it would start selling products from British supermarket chain Wm Morrison, which until then had used Ocado exclusively to run its online deliveries.After falling about 56 percent over two years, Ocado's stock started climbing in February on the deal rumors. But so far the deal chatter has been just that -- chatter. The thing is, U.S. supermarkets could definitely use the help with online grocery. Publix and others would be wise to hurry up and get on the Internet food-sales bandwagon; it's only a matter of time until Amazon dominates the grocery market just as it did bookstores.Right now, online sales are meager in the U.S., hovering around 2 percent in major markets such as New York and San Francisco, compared with nearly 5 percent in the U.K., where the practice has been commonplace for longer. The percentage of sales that occur online is even larger for companies such as U.K. grocer Tesco, which Bloomberg Intelligence analyst Charles Allen pegs at around 10 percent of grocery sales. Taking A Bite Out of Grocery Sales Internet food sales in the U.K., as percentage of total retail sales Source: Bloomberg Intelligence It took decades for U.S. retailers such as Walmart, Target, and Costco to realize the heft of Amazon and start taking e-commerce seriously. Convincing them, along with traditional grocers such as Publix, to dive faster into online grocery, which comes with the added challenges of keeping items cold and fresh, is also likely to be tough going.It's an especially hard task for Ocado, which has little to no experience in the U.S., where grocery chains tend to operate more by region, even if they are owned by a national chain.A number of the biggest grocery-sellers in the U.S., including Walmart, Kroger, and Ahold, have decided to try running online groceries on their own -- perhaps learning a lesson from ill-fated industry tie-ups such as Target's decision to outsource its website to Amazon.Plus Ocado already has plenty of competition from upstarts such as Shipt, Postmates, and Instacart, which recently inked a multi-year deal with Whole Foods and has been delivering groceries for big retailers such as Target and Costco.Ocado has managed to turn a profit in the past two years, which is more than many retailers can say about their online grocery delivery businesses. And its profit margins are higher than those of most grocers (Ocado's gross margins stood at 34 percent last year, compared with Kroger's 22 percent). In The Bag 2015 gross profit margin by grocer Source: Bloomberg So perhaps Ocado is doing something right. But unless it can convince others of its promise, it's unlikely to deliver the kind of international partnerships for which shareholders are waiting. This column does not necessarily reflect the opinion of Bloomberg LP and its owners.
asagi: Didn't they hire a load of people, in the expectation that there would be some surge of demand for its IT IP? hxxp:// The assumption seems to be that the cashflow gap can be narrowed by an IT IP deal. Can this be allowed to go on all year without a fundraise? Will a fundraise seal the fate of the execs? Strange to note the share price action today - it's familiar. An steep early rise based of panicking shorts closing (I suspect) followed by steady selling by dismayed longs. It feels like the shorts are in charge of the short term. I increased my short at around 10am. Can they avoid redundancies? Asagi (short OCDO)
asagi: EffortlessCool: no sign of the much vaunted international IT deal. That's their only hope, in my opinion. fft: hard to see how they are going to get any sort of financial windfall from any deal done Agreed - but the lack of a deal, more than two years after the Morrison's deal was signed suggests that the market doesn't value the tech sufficiently to a price that Ocado would be happy with. Or worse, that the Ocado share price would be happy with. A low priced deal holes the valuation. For the purpose of the share price and all the optimistic broker notes, NO DEAL is better than a low priced deal. As at 9 August 2015 the Group had cash and cash equivalents of £51.8 million and external borrowings4 of £44.4 million. Today: As at 29 November 2015 the Group had cash and cash equivalents of £45.8 million, external borrowings of £53.2 million, and a further undrawn revolving credit facility5 of £210 million. one year ago: As at 30 November 2014 the Group had cash and cash equivalents of £76.3 million and external borrowings of £(44.9) million.
