balancedviews: I have regularly put into these guys over last 4 months as it hit peak of 14% shorted. My composite share price is 116. Its not that Im good it, unfortunately, shows what a whole nonsense, harsh but maybe fair, the fund managing sector is. Its algorithm and sentiment based. Read the numbers, read the strategy, look at history and consider future. This has always had a good chance of working. That was always the bet. A pretty safe one with a solid dividend backing it up. The back stop of being bought out remains against a mathematically undervalued share price for the vets business alone INMH Brexit uncertainty will remain but, hopefully, some path forward found. INMH these shares should trade 180-200
muchodinero: results Well considering the half year update was more downbeat than was being stated in the previous management statements, revenues are still growing strongly. Looks like management have taken the opportunity to carry out some write offs (reduces tax bill also). Share price reaction is surprisingly robust considering the headline reduction in profit for half year. Shorts appear to have lost their appetite for PETS in the light of robust management actions and 7.5p dividend being re-stated. I'm quite happy to get a 6.5% yield with prospects of 10% share price growth. Also there is always the potential for PE to come back for PETS. Shorts won't enjoy paying a 7.5p dividend and paying at least the same again to borrow the stock. I think this will creep higher over the next 12 months based on the latest update and all factors mentioned. Aimho adyor!!!
balancedviews: Every-time there is a drop I've bought and will continue to do so. Two things drive the share price - business performance and a bunch of cowboys. The latter may be fabulous analysts with great algorithms but do not understand the core business. My logics are as follows - The margin on 'core product' reducing doesn't matter as its a volume play and will be held up by 'one stop shop' and increasing online. Its service business' of pets and grooming will likely grow further The basic maths on the value of the company is off. The VET business alone is roughly worth the current price. The dividend is healthy and well covered. My only emotion in my thinking is a 'one in the eye' for the shorters who bully the market. Philosophically I think its sad such a bunch of number crunching wide boys can impact on companies success and failure. The 'right' price for this share is close to £2. The variable will be the date it gets there. I will not just hold out but keep buying if it drops.
muchodinero: Blackrock have reduced by 0.02%. Not sure why they even bothered,They are just playing silly beggars with PETS share price. Just hope that they get burned very soon.
muchodinero: RE: consolidation in uk vets ........what's even more puzzling about PETS current valuation is that this proposed takeover of Vetpartners is £700million. That's for just 260 vets practices, while PETS has twice that many vets, 450 stores and grooming salons, with a smaller valuation. Based on the same fundamentals PETS should be worth twice the current share price. Engadine an others are definitely up to something shady imho!
cantrememberthis2: Pets at Home Group Plc (LON:PETS): Commentary On Fundamentals Kevin Zeng June 16, 2018 Building up an investment case requires looking at a stock holistically. Today I’ve chosen to put the spotlight on Pets at Home Group Plc (LON:PETS) due to its excellent fundamentals in more than one area. PETS is a financially-sound company with a a strong track record high-grade dividend payments, trading at a discount. Below, I’ve touched on some key aspects you should know on a high level. For those interested in digger a bit deeper into my commentary, take a look at the report on at Home Group here. Excellent balance sheet, good value and pays a dividend PETS is financially robust, with ample cash on hand and short-term investments to meet upcoming liabilities. This indicates that PETS has sufficient cash flows and proper cash management in place, which is an important determinant of the company’s health. PETS appears to have made good use of debt, producing operating cash levels of 0.55x total debt in the prior year. This is a strong indication that debt is reasonably met with cash generated. PETS’s share price is trading at below its true value, meaning that the market sentiment for the stock is currently bearish. This mispricing gives investors the opportunity to buy into the stock at a cheap price compared to the value they will be receiving, should analysts’ consensus forecast growth be correct. Compared to the rest of the specialty retail industry, PETS is also trading below its peers, relative to earnings generated. This bolsters the proposition that PETS’s price is currently discounted.
spotdog40: Sales are up, debt is down, cashflow is healthy, it's paying a stupidly high dividend (but it's not the divi that's stupid,it's today's market valuation) Yes, not going bust, but couple of doubts from latest results have precipitated a collapse in what was already a depressed share price. 1) Cutting margins on branded/premium petfood to compete with amazon, or zooplusAg on price isn't sensible. Let those busy fools compete for margin share, and slim profits. If a customer wants pet food quickly, they'll be prepared to pay a premium to buy in store. Let the customers pay you that premium, or better still fob them off with some own brand stuff (higher margin) - which is "just as good", or if you happen to be in partnership with 500 vet practices, then get them to recommend the own brand. 2) I thought expanding the number of vet practices was the future, and the slowdown in expansion raises worries. If they haven't got the cash to do it, then just slash the divi to pay for it, and we'll forgive you when the profits come rolling in in future years. If it's not a good idea, and too many practices have been opened recently in unsuitable locations, with unsuitable partners, then the future might not be so bright. However PETS still keep getting their 18% of turnover from the veterinary businesses until they pull the plug, and the majority of the loans are in the vets names anyway. I'm heavily invested in this through my SIPP, and like others I'll keep adding more, until the true value of this company is realised. Others who watch charts will react to tomorrow's ex-divi drop, and sell it down to new low levels. (Leaving the FTSE 250 is also unlikely to help support the price.) If the shorting isn't a pre-meditated plan to soften up the share price for takeover, then it may well "innocently" lead to the same result. Connections of the Directors have been buying plenty of shares at higher prices, and rather than paying a 6% divi on a potential growth stock, they've be better off taking it private.
cantrememberthis2: Pets at Home Upgraded by Morgan Stanley today: Morgan Stanley upgraded Pets at Home to ‘equal-weight’ from ‘underweight’ on Friday following significant recent share price underperformance. The bank, which kept its price target on the stock at 125p, said that while it remains cautious about the company’s longer-term financial prospects, the issues are now fairly reflected in the share price. MS has had an ‘underweight’ rating on the stock since it initiated coverage shortly after the IPO in 2014, amid doubts about the sustainability of gross margins on the retail side of Pets’ business, while more recently it highlighted that many of its vet joint ventures are struggling to reach profitability. "Despite significant recent price investment, Pets at Home's Retail business still has a gross margin of more than 50%. We think this will prove difficult to maintain, given rising competition from discounters, supermarkets and online specialists." The bank said its concerns on these issues remain, but they are now priced in as the shares have almost halved since the beginning of last year and are now down around 60% from their 2015 peak. "Whilst earnings forecasts have fallen, the shares have de-rated significantly and now trade on a single-digit price-to-earnings multiple on consensus forecasts," Morgan Stanley said. "We think gradual further earnings downgrades are likely in the medium term, but we do not envisage a big profit warning anytime soon. Nor do we see the shares de-rating much further."
spotdog40: Interesting that PETS have decided to separate out retail and veterinary for 2019.Makes it easier to see the value in the veterinary business. CVS revenue £271m, for profit before tax of £14.5m, EPS 18.5p, share price 1000p Pets VET REVENUE £94m, EBIT £29m, contributing 33% of the basic EPS 13.5p, share price 140p. In terms of EPS (4.5/18.5 x 1000p)a standalone PETS veterinary business on a CVS valuation would be worth £2.43 per share. PETS veterinary business should attract a higher valuation though, as the businesses are immature, and we can expect double digit growth for the next few years. CVS have been collecting mature businesses which are unlikely to grow at the same rate. 15% shorting of this stock has made it vulnerable to a takeover or buyout. The price has been mostly under £2 since early 2017. Anyone want to rescue a pet shop chain- free to good home?
alibx11: Liberum now coming out with a sell recommendation.... you've got to they come to this position is beyond me... the fact that the share price has already dropped more than 30% in 5 months on increased profits and expanding vet and grooming services is totally irrelevant to them by the look of it.
