robin_lemer: Am amazed market makers have not marked the share price higher after the notification of the Orbach stake of 17% equating to purchase cost of approx £5m. He was the CEO and was kicked out in 2013. Interesting developments ahead.
cwa1: And a whopping NED share purchase announced :-)
topvest: Just had another look at the interims. They were truly awful. Balance sheet is insolvent. If you were cynical, you would say it was convenient to announce the possible bid to keep the share price up. They do need a very good Autumn and Xmas trading period. This is not investible to me given the balance sheet. Wonder if Bloomsbury Publishing were interested?
ddahj: Good article in the Sunday Times Review page 2; how digital reading has slowed and book worms are turning back to printed books. I much prefer print books they are so easy to write in and bookmark, I used to underline words when revising for exams. Also don't forget to get a copy of the accounts in print form so you can write on them lots of ratios and see just how good and profitable Quarto is. Just looking forward to a good dividend for several years and expect the share price to climb in excess of 10% per year.
huttonr: today's transaction - sell 169 shares - share price down 5p!
huttonr: On my arithmetic that looks like a PE of 5.4 - and the share price has shot up today by 5p
huttonr: Well - respectable results, and I suppose that the share price is not too bad considering the general market turmoil - but it would be nice to see it back up to the 180/190 area - not until 2010, I guess.
das9: With acknowledgements to Huttonr: We seem to be having a very depressed share price at the moment: anything happening or do I just sit back and suffer?
cwa1: John Lee: Everything is processing nicely By John Lee Published: May 4 2007 14:24 | Last updated: May 4 2007 14:24 I find that my portfolio is developing into an interesting mix of both "personal" and "process". In a way the "personal" has always been there – discovering a hidden jewel, researching, and over the years developing a close relationship with the chairman or chief executive – they almost become part of one's extended family. For me all this represents the fun and fascination of the stock market – pleasure, interest and satisfaction – plus, hopefully, financial gain! A classic example of this would be Air Partner, the world's leading air charter broker, which I first "discovered" in 1999, initially buying at £2 per share. I met chairman and major shareholder Tony Mack and chief executive David Savile, visited the company's Gatwick headquarters and attended the AGMs. Over the years the company has grown – with 10 per cent dividend increases annually, 21 offices worldwide, a £12.50 share price, loads of favourable publicity and a heady price/earnings (p/e) multiple of 27. I confess to actually selling a few from my Pep at £11.40, hoping to buy them back on a bad day – but from experience this rarely works! The "process" part of my investment life essentially involves building a portfolio of quality established small cap stocks, staying aboard, and allowing corporate developments to take their course – with approximately 45 holdings something is usually happening. Thus I have just received the cash proceeds of two recent takeouts – insurance broker Windsor and the minerals specialist UCM – and consumer finance group Hitachi, only bought a few months ago, has just agreed a cash takeover by its controlling parent, the Hitachi Corporation of Japan; while housebuilder Ben Bailey and soft drinks group Nichols are in takeover talks. This "process" – almost a production line – brings a steady cash flow and shows no signs of abating. To this liquidity must be added two recent short-term successes somewhat outside my favourite small cap sector – aerospace/engineering group GKN bought at an overlooked 282p last December and sold fully valued in April at 390p; and Alfred McAlpine, bought on what I considered an excessive fall after disclosure of its slate quarry fraud at 444p and 465p, and sold very recently at 490p after full-year figures. My not unpleasant dilemma is what to do with this rising liquidity given that I am not seeing new "value" opportunities. I resolved to add to two existing holdings, Delcam and Quarto, but retain higher liquidity until new situations arise, perhaps via a fall in the market. I first wrote about Aim-quoted Delcam in February following a visit to its Birmingham home. I drew attention to the quality and international nature of its clients and business – supplying software for manufacturing processes, particularly of complex shapes – its massive research and development expenditure relative to turnover, its eight times dividend cover, and a p/e ratio of around 10. Though the shares are a tight market, given the size of directors'/employees' shareholdings, I bought more after my visit, then more still at 420p after Renishaw agreed to subscribe £6m for 20 per cent of Delcam's equity at 400p, and then more still at 415p. This followed a buoyant trading statement at the end of April pointing to sales increases with particularly strong growth of maintenance income. Overlooked international book publisher Quarto has been a disappointment – its share price never reflecting the value of its titles from which it generates significant annual licensing income. I have been buying its shares since mid-2005, averaging around 195p. The unexpected default of a US customer knocked the shares but I regarded this as an unfortunate "one-off" and took the opportunity to pick up more at 163p. I recently had a very enjoyable lunch with conservative founder Laurence Orbach, 30 years at the helm, at the HQ close to Moorfields Eye Hospital. We shared the table with piles of new quality publications – 500 each years and hopefully of an enduring nature – including Biblica, a magnificent coloured atlas of the Bible which will retail at approximately £75 and a range of practical books with imprimaturs: The Art of Flower and Garden Photography, RHS; Outdoor Fix It, Black & Decker; Landscaping and Lawn Care, John Deere; and Sewing Guide, Singer. Quarto is capitalised at only £36m, with a yield of nearly 4 per cent and a single figure p/e ratio – well below its peers: I confidently expect my "process" to ultimately deliver.
