a0469514: Surprised that there is no comments here on the results which look excellent to me. The Brazil operations going well as they recover from covid. Half your share value is in the investment portfolio which returned 9% in a half year. The shares pay a 7.7% divided yield and the share price is at a significant discount to the sum of the parts of the business.A rock solid undiscovered gem imo.Xylos
piedro: RNS Number : 5048Z Ocean Wilsons Holdings Ltd 24 May 2021 OWHL - Subsidiary, WSL - Proposed Restructuring ... The Proposed Restructuring is intended to simplify and optimise the Group's corporate structure, increase stock liquidity and facilitate the Wilson Sons' access to capital markets. ... IMO this restructuring will allow the move of the WSON shares to the 'main' market which is more serious, {like getting promoted from AIM to the FTSE}. Institutions will feel more confident to invest, capital may be raised if necessary and as can be seen the share price is being re-rated. I note that an astute Director has acquired 2,000 shares, but the lag in the share price perhaps reflects a certain distrust of the OCN bod.
flyfisher: Wilson sons has been rising over the last couple of weeks and the real has been strengthening against the USD. It does not seem to be reflected in the OCN price. Is their any wson33 news or rumour that has caused the rise? I get a current sotp of 1751p for OCN implying a 39% discount at current price, much higher than the historic norm.
pugugly: From todays rns. net asset value per Ocean Wilsons share of US$20.03 (£14.50) per share. The Ocean Wilsons share price of £9.25 at 30 April 2021 represented an implied discount of 36.2% Diabolical discount and poor performance of the investment portfolio both in absolute terms and relative to the market - They should fire the asset managers (imo)
flyfisher: WSON33 share price has risen in excess of 20% in the last 3 weeks, which has not been mirrored by OCN who hold the majority. Brazilian real has firmed against the $, and the investment portfolio should have had a good Q1. Perhaps OCN will catch up with events.
varies: Last of the Mohicans. How time flies. I had not realised that it is nearly ten years since OCN's share price hit £14. Even if one added back the dividends received during this period, one would probably be showing a loss on any shares bought at £14 ten years ago, certainly in real terms if not nominal. Let us hope the next ten years prove more profitable for us outside shareholders than the last. I fear like Pugugly that I shall have passed on before the value gets unlocked but I shall enjoy my dividends.
pugugly: "Net Asset Value At the close of markets on 31 December 2020, the Wilson Sons' share price was R$45.30 (US$8.73), resulting in a market value for the Ocean Wilsons holding of 41,444,000 shares (57.77% of Wilson Sons) totalling approximately US$361.5 million which is the equivalent of US$10.22 (£7.48) per Ocean Wilsons share. Adding the market value per share of Wilsons Sons of US$10.22 and the investment portfolio at 31 December 2020 of US$8.77 results in a net asset value per Ocean Wilsons Holdings Limited share of US$19.00 (£13.89). The Ocean Wilsons Holdings Limited share price was £8.45 at 31 December 2020." No sign yet of value being unlocked for shareholders. Bid/offer pre open 810/820. Must be one of the bigget discounts in the market - but most of us may well have passed on before it gets to parity.
last of the mohicans: EezyMunny No, I'm sorry but you need to understand the company and its financials much better. I never said anything linking EPS with the company's value (actual or even possible value). EPS are linked to dividends, its unsustainable for a business to be earning less than it is paying out in dividends, yes it can be smoothed out for a short period of time, but that's as far as it goes, after that you're building up major problems. Varies, the fact they farm out the management of the portfolio is part of the problem, if they actually gave the funds to groups capable of making money, we might have a decent sized portfolio by now, the fact they haven't means it's money effectively doing nothing for OCN shareholders but keeps their coy setup going I think the share price high was in 2011 actually, so 10 years of serious under performance, same for Hansa Trust. (You'll have noted that the trust has a lot of the same holding as in the OCN portfolio itself). As I said if it wasn't for the one investment they've got right - Findlay Park American (FPA), the whole shareholder base would be up in arms about it all ! They even sold FPA twice, (once I think fully) and then bought them back (not as many as we had originally) if they had the holding would be worth north of $35M right now. However that would cause them a problem in itself as it would be near or at the upper limit of the amount they are allowed to have in one particular fund! They've never found other investment to properly complement FPA and thus grow at a similar sort of rate or one that we could describe as acceptable and thus not require FPA to be reduced to stay within the limits. What was meant to happen from 07/08 as part of shareholders agreeing to the Wilson & Sons float, was that some of the fund would be paid out in dividends, until they realised within 3 years that that wasn't sustainable given all the $ Millions that were being lost in management fees. Not for out performance, but mediocre results at best. What I find amazing is the graph's they produce each year as to the funds performance and it always refers to a certain index, well if they'd just invested in that index or mimicked it for the last 10 years, the value of the portfolio would be multiples of what it is now ! but none of them are smart enough to have worked that out ! LOTM
varies: Lasr of the Mohicans, I agree with almost every word you say. The present generation of Walter Saloman's descendants lack his acumen and it is just as well from our point of view that management of the portfolio is farmed out. We do indeed suffer a double helping of charges on this. To my mind this unsatisfactory situation is allowed for by the share price but I appreciate that others may think it is not. The reference to an all-time high in the title to this thread is some 6 years out of date, I believe, and we would obviously all have done better to sell at £14 when we could. My holding here goes back to the 1980s and I now receive back year after year the capital invested as a dividend : a yield on my cost of about 100%. So I have a sentimental attachment to OCN which may cloud my judgment.
henchard: Discount 47% right now. Historically high? hTTps://www.fool.co.uk/investing/2020/11/23/3-uk-value-stocks-i-think-could-make-me-rich/ "UK value stocks #2 Another business I’d be happy to buy a slice of is Ocean Wilsons Holdings (LSE: OCN). This one is listed on the FTSE main market, and has a capitalisation of £241.4m. OCN has a controlling 58.16% interest in Sao Paolo-listed Wilson Sons — one of the largest providers of maritime services (towage, container terminals and so on) in Brazil. OCN also has a portfolio of around 80 international fund investments (e.g. Findlay Park American and Adelphi European Select Equity). Based on Wilson Sons’ latest share price, and current exchange rates, OCN’s interest in the business can be valued at £243.4m. This is equivalent to 688p per OCN share. Meanwhile, the value of its investment portfolio last reported (31 October) was £211m, or 597p per OCN share. Therefore, the sum of 688p and 597p gives OCN shares an intrinsic value of 1,285p. Yet they’re trading at 682.5p — an implied discount of 47%. Put another way, OCN shares buy you Wilson Sons at a small discount to its price on the Sao Paolo stock exchange and you get the £211m investment portfolio thrown in for free. My calculations suggest OCN is another top value stock on the UK market."
