£150m gives EPS of close to 50p and I think next years cover is stated at 1.4. Assuming PFG stands still next year and makes the same £150m that suggests a divi of around 35p = yield of call it 6.5%. That really assumes no contribution next year to profits from CCD which seems unlikely, Wont be going back to £23 anytime soon but if you think CCD will start to contribute next year then looks quiet reasonable value IMHO. IMHO Vanquis on its own is worth this price and everything else is currently in for free

I agree. I think yesterday was not bad or good news. They are going to pay a nominal dividend this year and then pay full after that. I remember this stock being tipped in the times for being able to get back to £23. Just a matter of patience

I don't think the RNS was that bad. I think expectations by some investors had got ahead of themselves. This is going to take years to get back to some resemblance of what it once was. The relationships that were damaged have gone and new bonds will take years to form. Demographics still fit PFG well.

Not necessarily, the issue that seemed to concern the market were the potential for rising delinquencies with the Vanquis card holders, in the old days when PFG relied pretty much on door to door lending this was easy to resolve due its simplicity, and the customers being monitored in a more personal way, now it is probably done by letter and they just do not open them! Otherwise the statement was generally ok, but Vanquis is seen as the prime product within the PFG portfolio!

Have all the measures gotten worse since the first half ? In isolation that RNS did not read as bad as the share price suggests ..

Chart wise if 500 area holds would make a nice double bottom however if it goes all bets are off imo,

Both Woodford's Income Focus and Equity Income funds had a+5% weighting in PF at close. Very difficult to assess the value of this one, delinquincies off the scale, interest rates probably subject to regulatory changes and in spite of the rights it's still got a precarious balance sheet. Woodford likes his danger bangs. Haven't a clue whether it's a buy or not at this level.

Pretty sure he owned them when they were over £3000, been a total disaster for him along with capita which despite defending and adding for years he recently sold much of his holding.

Woodford only seems to buy high risk / reward companies with very poor ethics and strong political risks.

Guess they figured that they might win more business if there wasn't much noise. Good thing about the "recession" is that there is more borrowing. Good for PFG that is.

PFG doesn't need this kind of publicity. What were they thinking?

Looks like another regulatory cloud headed toward PFG, the ASA was not happy and now Rachel Reeves has stepped in and asked the FCA what it can do regarding Provident's direct marketing campaign over christmas. Probably won't amount to much but another distraction and another black mark on their name at the regulator.

It is going to be just fine guys. A new Captain at the helm and no more worries about the FCA. So it is just a just a question of time IMHO. Good luck
