malcolmmm: OH right , good for OTB then
malcolmmm: Yes bought some this morning as travel is opening up. I thought OTB sells holidays to Europe only? so the US opening up wont effect these?
milliecusto: Dubai opened up as well, just booked Jumeriah beach with otb, with shoot pass 400p,
dsrush: Pug. Demand isn't yet weaning right off though. From that article.. "Demand for foreign travel has been so high that on 8 July, the day after the announcement was made, Skyscanner saw the most daily bookings made in over six months" and "'Weekly bookings were up by 39 per cent last week compared to the previous week, with Spain taking the lion's share of bookings. Spanish destinations accounted for seven of the top ten most booked since the announcement was made" Rising demand, along with staff issues at airports, has seen the likes of BA suggest dropping off bags a day early. The airports are far from ghost like. They are rammed. Those people are going somewhere. Those people are paying someone for flights and accommodation. https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-9789289/British-Airways-urges-passengers-drop-luggage-day-travel.html Despite all the extra aggro and all the risks etc etc. It would seam an awful lot of people are not being deterred from holidaying overseas.
john09: I want to buy also but 2021 is a write off hence the price is heading south. There are now catalysts for this for the foreseeable i wiould stand back and wait .
boonkoh: Indeed... Wouldn't be surprised at all if OTB announce an extension of their off-sale period to cover Sep and Oct as well. Seeing that the govt is refusing to budge from its chaotic traffic light system.If they don't sell hols for Sep and Oct, then they'll need to raise more funding as cash burn is so much greater for winter months, seasonally.
pugugly: SCSW bought at 326p - So instant loss - Possibly a timing problem but with more countries being added to the Orange list and massive uncertainty about new varients of the virus, one (imo) to watch but not buy at the moment - Like gambling on booking an overseas holiday at the moment. Placing 7 July 330 pence per Placing Share (the "Placing Price"). Numis did a good job - The Placing Price represents a discount of approximately 5.0% to the closing share price of 347.5 pence on 6 July 2021. So cannot fault SCSW but blindsided by virus surge -
jojaken: I'm surprised by the timing of their tip for OTB given the ever worsening state of the holiday season. Could you please let us know if they had anything new to say to justify their tip? TIA
boonkoh: I don't think it is mothballed. Govts will be under pressure to allow tourism this summer to protect the industry.We'll know the UK stance in Boris announcement next week on the pathway out of lockdown.But suspect the fine details and actual confirmation of summer will need to wait till Mar, Apr. Until then, uncertainty will cause OTB price to remain weak.
lomax99: FT: On The Beach shares fly into uncharted territory Online travel agent valued twice as highly as bigger competitors “Cheap holidays. Book today,” shouts On The Beach. The Cheadle-based online travel agent can’t call its stock cheap, though. Shares in On The Beach, which allows punters to build their own trips online, rose above £6 last week before settling back to 555p, still about three times their price at flotation in London in September 2015. That is on the back of a 30 per cent rise in revenues between September 2015 and 2017 and a 96 per cent rise in pre-tax profits. The market now values OTB, founded in 2004 by chief executive Simon Cooper in a bedroom in a terraced house in Macclesfield, at just under £800m, or about 30 times earnings per share forecast this year. The multiples in long-established travel operators Thomson-owner Tui and Thomas Cook are only half as high. And they command networks of shops, cruise ships, hotels and planes to take trippers round the world. They dominate the niche that OTB specialises in, together sharing about 40 per cent of the UK’s online short-haul beach package holiday market. OTB is a titch by comparison with just a fifth of the market and almost no tangible assets. Still, OTB has doubled its market share since 2011 and, unlike Tui and Thomas Cook, it does not make big bets on passengers numbers. It does not pre-book airline seats or have branded hotels. It simply takes sun-worshippers where and when they want to go. That has its advantages — OTB is not worried by occupancy rates or fallow periods when tourists stay home and hoteliers renovate rooms. It has a fraction of the overheads and little exposure to the high-street gloom. Nonetheless, sending 1.5m passengers abroad annually to don thongs and build sandcastles is a volatile business. Bookings hinge on the weather, how flush holiday makers feel and the latest news on sterling and terrorism. Monarch Airline’s collapse last year constrained flight capacity, pushed up seat prices and hit bookings during the winter, prompting analysts to trim OTB’s full-year profit forecasts by £1m or so to about £34m against £28.5m last year. And still OTB shares trade on higher multiples of earnings than many online peers. Its debt plus equity value is 16 times expected earnings — twice that of Expedia, the vast US online travel business. The enterprise value of Hostelworld, the Irish agency that also listed in London in 2015, is 14 times forecast earnings. In fact, OTB’s rating may be closer to Purplebricks, the web-based middleman for housebuyers that floated the same year. Purplebricks’ shares are five times higher now, based on a fourfold increase in revenues to £47m in two years. OTB’s sales growth at about 20 per cent a year looks pedestrian by comparison. The beach holiday business is profitable. Purplebricks is not. But Purplebricks is breaking new ground in the property industry, whereas OTB is just another online travel business like easyJet or Jet2, which has to spend close to half of revenues a year on marketing to establish its name. But to classify OTB as a bucket shop is to miss the point, say OTB fans. It is disrupting the online package holiday market. “OTB is a tech business playing in leisure,” says Berenberg analyst Owen Shirley, who said he believes the company has something even its bigger rivals lack. OTB has built booking technology that enables it to personalise and finesse offers to holiday makers, convert more browsers to bookings, reduce average costs per click paid to search engines and optimise revenues per booking. Now more than 40 per cent of OTB customers bypass search engines to make repeat bookings. That means OTB does not have to work so hard or pay so much for business. It also has more clout to drive better deals with hotels. Operating margins, despite the marketing spend, are a juicy 40 per cent. Rivals will have to spend oodles of cash to catch up while OTB expands, says Mr Shirley. And that is really why OTB is rated so highly. Investors think one of OTB’s bigger deep-pocketed peers such as Expedia or Priceline, now Booking.com, will decide it is easier to buy OTB than build its own proprietary systems to compete in what is after all a small market. OTB’s board seems to think that too. It has NM Rothschild on standby to advise it just in case a bidder should knock on its office door. That is dandy. But it doesn’t make the shares cheap.
