1cutandrun: It is with regret that PFG has decided to withdraw from the home credit market entirely and is considering a sale of this business. The home credit business will be placed into a managed run-off, which would be expected to conclude by December 2021.
jimbobs147: Given the court case went well for Amigo I can't see why it will be any different for PFG so hopefully that should then give us certainty on the max payout which should give the share price some octane.
1cutandrun: I put a post on here 15th March stating the shares were ridiculously low at £1.89. How many bought at this price. In just three weeks they have increased, as of today to £2.38. Don't be fooled with this FCA business, it's all a red herring. PFG are in a win win situation, regarding this matter. The Annual Report is due soon and who knows how the City will take it. Regardless, if the share price goes down or up on the day, I'm buying more as I'm confident these will go over £3.00. I've put my neck on the chopping block, will I be proven right, lets wait and see.
1cutandrun: I can see what you're saying, but at the end of the day the City know and being a UK company, comparing the difference in the share price doesn't make sense.
1cutandrun: The City is playing a bloody silly game here. The share price is ridiculously low. Compare the price to IPF and you will see the stupid difference. Poland has one of the highest COVID 19 outbreaks and the government has imposed interest limitations on new loans until June, after being extended from March, and this is expected to be extended again to the end of the year. Plus they had to refinance their loans to stop defaulting on their existing loans. We are coming out of lockdown and yet IPF shares are more solid than Provident. The City has gone completely mad.
fenners66: "fenners66 26 Aug '20 - 09:34 - 3890 of 4049 "CCD reported a loss before tax (LBT) of GBP37.6m (H1'19 LBT: GBP15.1m) " But receivables were down about £100m What is the point of lending to lose money ? I confess I have only read the first section and not all the way through - maybe there is some better news further down." Based on the fundamentals I was negative on PFG in August and said so on here at the time. In terms of share price , a buyer then could have done well , if sold at the high later. However those CCD fundamentals and presumably the internal impact of attempting to chase loans to improve profitability have come back to bite PFG. Furlough is still to end, unemployment could yet get worse. Now we read that CCD is a complete disaster. This company has been heading down the toilet since the share price hit about £30.
diku: Morale of story is that all these run up in market/share prices one doesn't know what is lurking behind the trading statements...
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!.
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.
