I think H&T is a better buy than RFX which made around 50% of profits from FX and jewellery sales. H&T has far larger pawnbroking pledge book inc that acquired from Albermarle and Bond. Banks are tightening consumer credit which should help pawnbroking and unsecured lending.

He concludes with: "...although earnings for the coming year will fall short of the 2019/20 record performance due to the Covid-19 induced disruptions, Ramdens’ business is far more resilient than Liberums’ estimates suggest. That’s simply not being priced in with the shares trading on five times cash-adjusted earnings based on the 2019/20 results, and 11 times Liberum’s low-ball estimates for the coming year. Buy." He's right IMO.

what happens to pawned items and interest thereon if the shops are closed?

With income from foreign exchange a major contributor to group profits, clearly the short-term outlook is challenging, even when stores do reopen. However, with the shares still languishing 42% below January highs, the bad news and more appears to be factored into the current share price. Pawnbroking activity could also receive a boost as stores reopen and the group will have benefited from the strong gold price. Yet another recovery play!

I'm expecting Ramsdens to re-open their shops from 1st June. H&T have already opened some shops as a trial and are reopening more (media coverage 22nd May) The majority of non essential shops should be reopened from 1st June as part of the lockdown free up, so I'd expect more footfall through the towns that Ramsdens operate in, so worth reopening.....Hopefully we will get an announcement soon, to this effect.

RFX commentary from Downing annual report... Ramsdens – is the closest we have to a zombie company, with all its physical stores now closed as nonessential businesses. It does have a website which continues to trade although this is also operating at a much lower level. From a going concern perspective, we think that there is limited risk as the company has furloughed around 90% of its staff and will benefit from other government support. Ramsdens has a net cash balance sheet with around £10 million of cash. It also had almost £12 million of precious metals inventory (as at the last interim) which can be readily liquidated. This was a key attraction at the outset of our investment and management has demonstrated a willingness to do so when metal prices are strong – gold is approaching highs not seen since the last recession. As we emerge from lockdown, Ramsdens is probably in a good position with its diversified business model. A meaningful cohort of the UK is likely to wish to travel abroad creating demand for Ramsden’s FX services. It is also likely that another cohort will require short-term liquidity through which the pawnbroking service will also benefit.

Gold price riding high again today - new highs. If maintained, that should read across to an extent with Ramsdens share price.

There's been quite a few shares bouncing back half way from the bottoms reached. Loads of short term trading I guess, which is nothing to do with the business. Difficulty is knowing which ones will dive back down. Looks like its going to be a long recession - I think there will be plenty of opportunities to work out which are the businesses that will recover best, or weren't actually hit that much in the first place. If its of any interest, a bit of my money from here has gone into AGFX which is an FX business, but very different from travel FX. Another bit went into OMIP, as its actually profit making and hopefully sheltered from the recession fallout. Hope that didn't break anyone's rampometer !

Robbie Burns bought on here at 120p. What's the betting he sold out at 165/170p?!

I’ve unhappily (given recent 250p and prospects) sold a fair chunk as overinvested and simply can’t get my head around the financials. In the end assumed a drop in earnings and therefore a rating of around 10 at some point. Quite where that will leave the share price I don’t know but cash for opportunities quite important in the next year

Just how much currency was on stock at close down of CV and how much has exchange rate(fx) moved against it on the different currencies? Could make a big difference positive or negative. Any ideas?

Got a bit of a reputation up north for being known as ‘Rip-off Ramsdens’!

Must do, it is their largest earner by far, with shops closed difficult to figure why we are where it is, one thing in their favour is people might to pawn their valuables In this time, and the business looks to be conducted behind glass principally, but more people staycating this year so less need for currency.

imo this is going to take a big hit from FX - the income from that part is pretty significant and its a simple profit making operation. Cashing in from pawnbroking is a bit more complicated looking forwards.

I've watched this over the last week - each time thinking it's too late to get in now.... Earlier today it was up 2.9% - again I decided not to buy but the thought went throgh my head "You'll regret that id it goes up 10% today..." and whadyyouknow.....it's been up >15% today so far. Could of,Should of, etc etc. 😎 GLA

Very true, I would guess its a combination. I've just sold here because it's been a decent rise but if these shops aren't opened on Monday we could see a retrace, who knows! Might look at HAT as it hasn't moved up at all recently but is in a very similar boat so slightly more attractively priced.

Beat me to it, yes another possibility James - although Naked Trader recommendation was a week ago. GLA 😎

Most of this will have come from the NT buying, I find shares tend to go up c20% whatever the stock following his buy. There is a likelihood of stores reopening Monday but people out too much could result in a second wave and a second lockdown unfortunately

If you check the web site you will see that all shops are closed. clearly not classed as essential.
