topvest: Yes, bought for the long term. I agree that share price could go up or down depending on the results. Only bought a small holding and may add more.
interelational: Hi Matt, Do you have any information about the company that would lead you to believe that the share price is going to go down? I think that an 8% drop in a company's share price the day before results are due to be announced is suspicious.
matt123d: Hi,Valuation metrics aside due to the fact they give no indication of future share price performance as they do not display supply/demand relationships on differing time frames. Currently displaying full time frame continuity to the downside. Red on the month, week, day and 60. Seeing more and more stocks like this and the most since the start of this current bull run.
interelational: Hi Matt, Why would you think that it is a 'major short candidate'? Everything about it looks good to me - consensus estimates for tomorrows earnings put them on a PE of around 17 and consensus estimate for next years earnings put them on a PE of around 14 - both of which compare extremely favourably to their average PE over the last few years - in the 20's. In addition to which their is forecast to be a fantastic dividend. But given the 8% drop in the share price today I am a bit suspicious that the results tomorrow are going to contain a nasty surprise... do you know what it is?
lbo: Polar Capital Our view: Buy Share price: 238.5p Polar Capital became the latest specialist asset manager to list on AIM yesterday. What does it mean by specialist, you may ask? Well, a little less than half of the $3.3bn it manages is in hedge funds which aim to make money for investors irrespective of how the wider stock market performs. The rest is invested in traditional long-only funds run by Polar - they make money only when the market is going up. Polar has decided to float for three reasons. First, the stock-market listing provides it with a great way to incentivise its workforce. There are few better ways to get the most out of employees than to given them a stake in the company, the value of which they can be seen to increase as the business grows. This type of arrangement also makes Polar a desirable place to work, helping the group attract the best people. Second, the float will help raise Polar's profile and make it more transparent for would be investors interested in its funds. Finally, it has allowed it to raise some fresh cash. The group raised £6m of new money at 190p which will be used as seed capital for new investment funds. Once these have built up a strong enough track record, Polar will be able to market them to investors. Polar makes money by charging a management fee to those who put cash into its funds, along with a cut of any profit it makes for them. Therefore, the more it makes for its clients, the more profit it makes for its shareholders. Key to growing the business is increasing its funds under management. In the past nine months alone this figure has risen 34 per cent to $3.3bn, and analysts are convinced this positive trend will continue for the foreseeable future. Pre-tax profits at Polar are tipped to come in at £6.7m in the year to 31 March 2007 and rise to £9.2m in 2008. Even after yesterday's strong debut, the stock trades at a substantial discount to recently listed peers like Bluebay and Ashmore, which is unjustified and makes it well worth buying.
