brucie5: Thanks, Rainmaker, duly noted, and I will be taking more interest in your posts henceforward, having crossed wires already on CNKS. Of your two pick above, ORCH look of interest to me, from chart perspective and because it actually gains a citation on Stocko as a Free Cash flow Cow. Finally, a dividend of 5% is not to be sneezed at. Do you have a target?
rainmaker: Hi Ben,I know that you have already bought both but for your reference a copy of my original message on the Value thread posted on 20 May 2021.Although both share prices have subsequently risen, Orchard Funding(ORCH) is now 59p bid,62p offered, up 15.24% and Vector Capital is now 59p bid, 61p offered,up 23.71% IMHO there're both still very cheap and IMHO there should be plenty more upside. Orchard Funding is still trading at a discount to its net working capital and Vector, at a small premium. A Value Investing forum, I can't resist, I have to make a quick "pit stop".Heres a couple of IMHO impressive "net nets" that I recently bought and haven't seen mentioned on this thread- Orchard Funding(ORCH) Market Cap £11.2mln Number of shares 21.4mln Share price 52.5p Spread 50p/55p p/e 8.13 Dividend yield 5.71% Trading at 6.75 times, 7 year average earnings. Net Working Capital-£15.43mln or 72.11p a share Bargain Ratio 1.37 Vector Capital(VCAP) Market Cap £20.4mln Number of shares 42.0mln Share price 48.5p Spread 46p/51p p/e 8.69 Dividend yield 2.94% but forecast to increase to 5.36% Trading at 12.37 times 3 year average earnings. Net Working Capital-£21.297 or 50.7p a share Bargain Ratio 1.04 The reason I've bought both shares is that they are not only both very cheap, Ben Graham "bargains" but also they are both good businesses and consistently profitable,with great margins, making returns on capital employed in double digits. There're also long established and proven businesses. I believe that Vector Capital was founded in 1978 and Orchard Funding has been around some 23 years. Both pay dividends so effectively you are being paid to wait for an increase in the share price. Both are involved in the funding business, effectively they borrow money to lend at a higher rate. Its a simple and easy to understand business model.Orchard provides customised financial fee funding solutions to accounting firms, professionals and small businesses. Through their subsidiary Bexhill, there are also involved in insurance premium funding so rather than a Customer having to pay the whole annual premium in one go, they arrange instalments say quarterly or even monthly. I read that they have never had a customer default on a payment. I'm holding both for at least a couple of years and expect to do well. AIMHO, DYOR I'll try to update more on Vector Capital later.
ben value: Hi Rainmaker I hope you are well. Good to see you are still around! I am interested in this share but I am not sure if I have missed the boat now that it has risen to 57p. Regards
rainmaker: "slammed" is a bit of an unfortunate pejorative term with negative connotations. For anyone unfamiliar with Stockopedia/piworld, the Investor has a favourable view of Orchard Funding and believes that at the current share price, the Company is undervalued. I note that over recent months there have been a 25k clip seller unwinding his holding without which I believe the share would have risen. He waits for 25ks of purchases then sells another 25k at 50p. However he may have finally sold all his holdings as there were approx 50k worth of purchases yesterday and just a solitary 25k sale at 51.5p

topvest: Keeping a low profile this company. I've doubled-up. Key points, both pro's and cons: 1. Disappointment after last year's profit warning still hanging over the shares. They have binned their advisor and appointed another with more realistic expectations (probably taken the view that it is better to have lower expectations and out-perform rather than making the same mistake again). 2. Think the prospects look good medium term though, so good time to buy on a 2 year view? 3. Stockopedia rank is very low, but its distorted by the cash outflow common to many banking stocks as they grow their debtor book. The score for banking stocks is just not valid. 4. Low risk lender - never, yes never, had a default (or an overdue). 5. Lots of market share to go for as miles behind the two market leaders. Are they a nimbler competitor? 6. Fin tech Orchard Lending Club launch not factored into the rating - could be a winner and seems to have started well and getting traction on deposits which will give them another funding source. 7. Ravi Takhar looks an "intelligent fanatic" - get in early! 8. Company is illiquid and not particularly well owned by institutions. Always good news for multi-bag gains a few years out. 9. July 2017 expectations have been wound right back to 20% growth on the base year. Looks pretty easy to beat given the Q4 lending book was up 22% and sales momentum is only just starting to get going following recent appointments. 10. Downside is that the price is likely to take a year or two to recover fully from the disappointment of not getting anywhere near the original 2016 expectations. 11. Share price is not incredibly cheap at 14 time forward earnings, 3% yield and a 50% premium on net asset value. 12 Finally their margins have dramatically improved given their ability to source lower cost funding. Overall, for me its a potential multi-bagger over 5 years. Could go a little lower in the short term. Reasonable margin of safety as net assets are about 58p (i.e. 35% downside). Well positioned to do well in the medium term. Happy to hold long-term and see how they do. It seems to me that they are quite well positioned to build a £100m business over that time period with steady growth using their conservative funding model.
thomasthetank1: Read Panmure's note on Orchard Funding Group (ORCH), out this morning, by visiting hxxps:// … “Prospects are larger than envisaged and taking longer. No change to numbers implies a significant amount of lending shortly to be deployed. New opportunities also add to the prospects and a banking licence application is now being prepared... The company is expected to achieve an 18% ROE in the year to July 16 and a 29% ROE in the year to July 17. 1.9X book value is considerably below all the peer group… The company has made significant progress in H1 which isn’t evident yet in the numbers. The prospects are larger than originally anticipated and have taken longer to deliver. The valuation fails to reflect the significant growth…”
