discodave45: Current unemployment is about 3.9% (1.34m). Some forecast this may double for 2020 (Https://, but as ever nobody knows.That aside during the financial crash PFG share price was £4 but continually rose for 7 or so years and hit £ did more than okay post economic downturn and I wouldnt mind that sort of return again!.
seball: Results are expected to be bad, however they wont be as bad as forcast imo and the future is now looking alot brighter. This will be reflected in share price. Share currently undervalued imo Good luck
seball: Expecting results will surprise to upside on 26th August. All bad news priced in share price. I expect £2.40 on results day and will a rise to £3 in coming months imv
discodave45: Have checked out the PFG website and there is a lot of info (and even a video to help existing customers) on how to pay current loans during the impacts of Corona virus. They do state that home visits have stopped as a result but they do also state the following:'If you're a new customer you can apply for a loan online. If you're accepted in principle a Rep will call you to finish the application.'So no problems IMO, they may be suffering from payment deferrals/late payments but that is priced into the share price, and some!.
1cutandrun: Superior. I bought big time two days before PFG reported and have now cashed out. Easy money really. I've still got an eye on them though. As for NSF, I don't believe the excuse they are making for the Annual Report delay. The report was due out at the end of April and nobody knows the release date. It made no sense in delaying it as the impact of the virus was new ground. Prolonging it identifies the damage it will have on the business. What the eye doesn't see the heart doesn't grieve. So why delay. Let me give a scenario. The market has already taken into account the negative prospects of companies for this year. Most bank and finance houses, when reporting, their shares price has increased. By delaying the report by two months this allows someone to drip feed into buying shares on a daily basis at rock bottom prices. I've noticed someone or people are buying shares daily, not through the LSE but are listed under MIC as XOFF. Basically as unidentified. If the share price goes up on the day of the report, they are going to make a killing and not investigated. Jono Gillespie was recruited from PFG in April and is now the Chief Financial Officer at NSF. The MD of PFG home credit, happens to be Chris Gillespie.
1cutandrun: PFG where testing handhelds for years but they all had problems. Funny that, as Prudential were using Huskys. The true fact was cost. Then apps came out and agents could use their own phones, saving the company a fortune. PFG were always being investigated by HMRC due to the self employed status. Uber started up and there was an outcry on being self employed. PFG knew they would get bad press, as they had so many people on that status. So things had to change. Instead of rolling it out gradually they did it all in one hit. What idiots. That was a recipe for disaster and yes it was. Under Kuffeler that would never have happened. When I retired the share price was £22 and went up to £30, now look them £1.88. How the mighty fall.
1cutandrun: I like to give you some information about PFG as I worked for them for over 30 years before retiring. This might help you with your portfolio. John van Kuffeler was the chairman for 20 odd years and very successful, apart from buying Yes Car Credit. He recruited Peter Crook who was the MD of Barclaycard.They wanted him to introduce a credit card for PFG, hence Vanquis.was born. They also wanted to start up in different Countries. Poland was ear marked and South Africa. Only Poland took off and made money. PFG then split the shares and IPF was born. Kuffeler retired as chairman before the shares crashed and started up his own company Non-Standard Finance (NSF). He is the CEO of the company and knows the business inside out. He tried a take over bid last year for PFG but failed. I purchased and sold two stocks in April (10k each). Barclays at 82p which was a no brainer and sold at 1.10p, also NSF at 8.5p and sold at 14p. I'm hoping Barclays will drop to less than 1 pound and I will buy back in. On Friday I was back in with NSF at 10.5p and sold at 12.3p. So I think NSF would make a good speculative bet, but be warned. Their annual report should have been released on 28th April but they are allowed to release it later due to the virus and it's coming out Mid-May. You have to watch this share price like a hawk, but if you can get in low the reward can be huge. On Friday there was only a 15 minute widow to buy low. Best of luck on what you decide to do
dual: Woodford in trouble... this is probably why PFG share price has fallen for the past week.. Woodford will need to sell.I think this is the beginning of the end of Woodford Investment and with it NSF.
grahamg8: Sorry Invictus "PFG" don't get to choose the take out price. The shareholders do. And according to NSF it's all done and dusted. IF a rival bidder can be teased out then the price could be driven up. Try to be too greedy and NSF will simply walk away and the PFG share price will drop like a stone. It isn't exactly clear what the NSF shareholders get out of this, so the biggest hurdle might be getting them to agree to the deal at the current offer price.
dexdringle: This is most odd..... Firstly NSF announce a 'firm' offer but no immediate response RNS from PFG who take three and a half hours to announce that they haven't yet got a response. So, presumably, they had no idea this was coming. NSF state that they have the agreement in principle from more than 50% of PFG shareholders meaning that, before the announcement, they must have discussed the proposed plan with some shareholders and not others. The PFG share price is now nearly 10% above the offer price based on the current 62p NSF share price x 8.88.
