Invesco seen as forced to get out and that explains the poor price NRR has been trading at as well, in part. The Woodford/Barnett curse.

Hi Superior. Hope you're keeping well. Invesco has its own big problems. Their share price has dropped due to the virus and they are in the same boat as everyone else. My experience tells me, when one investment company drops out they are soon replaced by another. Don't really think it will have a huge effect on PFG. Regards.

Last one on Furlough. I don't think anyone was furloughed because of no work . It was solely because the Authorities said they had to close.

Diku. I cant type :-) .. computer illiterate. Very bright with numbers though. We are not a Nationalised Nation. There is no point Furloughing Airline staff or associated industries, Rest. bar. cinema staff . The world has changed !. Free movement of people has diseased the world. All of the office people I know are all working from home. No loss of work. Pilots , Restaurant owners, Bar owners etc . You have no legal right to earn enormous sums of money from your chosen business. The World has changed move on !

No, the uplift today is due to an upgrade by Jefferies from 'hold' to 'buy'. Strong balance sheet and competitors falling by the wayside. They have a price target of 250p but do not expect PFG to pay a dividend until 2021. They believe that the dividend payment will not reach the 2019 level for another three years. The broker note can be read on FT Alphaville.

....except that people didn't choose to be furloughed - their employers decided to furlough them because there was no work. No point "battering down the door of the office" unless the employer has work for them and invites them back to work.

There were 2000 positive tests in the UK today. Do we keep all business closed until there are none? I haven't stopped work but I see that we will all be paying this Covid bill for yrs.

Thanks icutandrun . Hello to dexdringle. I may have two friends now ? :-). I agree on the write offs and re financing etc not being an issue. Accountants make David Copperfield look like an amateur when it comes to making things disappear !. As long as the agent's are still willing to collect, I can only see increased business over the next 5 years. I still believe though that in 12 months time, people won't be saying " what a buying opportunity that was " They will be saying " Can you believe how low these have dropped " The fallout is just beginning, I am a patient guy, going to bide my time. Regards to you both

Superior. I note your concerns regarding the home collection side of the business and that is totally justified. I don't think jobs will be an issue, as losing staff would put the companies under greater pressure and they will do whatever they can to retain staff. The customers who cannot pay online or by phone will still need collecting from home and this can be done through the letterbox or some other means. Revenue and arrears will be hit but there is one measure these companies can utilize and that's refinance with new loans. That's an instant fix. Companies benefit in three ways, sales, retrieve revenue and clear arrears. I guarantee they will go down this road. As Dex rightly said, write off will increase but using refinance this can be controlled within reason. PFG have Vanquis and are in a better position than companies who are solely home credit.

Net tangible assets here (stripping out intangibles) is £2.20 per share. They can afford to write off around £300 million (almost 20% of loan balances) until the net tangible assets equal the current share price or, to put it another way, the market seems to be 'pricing in' a haircut of around 20% across the whole loan book ???

Icutandrun. My friend :-) Thankyou for your informed posts. I am deep in my research at the moment with these home credit companies. Might be worth buying a basket of them in due course. One thing I am wondering about. When things start to move again. We will still be knee deep in Corona in fact it will probably be rising towards our midriff in another couple of months. Do yo think these companies Will have any staffing issues ?. I don't know how lucrative it is to be an agent, but I would imagine it's going to involve a lot of M.O properties , flats etc, plus it will be all cash. It's Corona heaven !. Could be a problem getting people to stick with it ?.
