The only risks I see are:
- Higher wage bill (which Board referenced in previous update)
- Slowing sales of high end jewellery particularly watches (seen at Watches of Switzerland)
- More foreign travel, but customers taking less FX cash.

Positives for me (and I've got a decent sized holding):
- Well run business and good Board who make decisions in growing the business in a steady and profitable way to the benefit of all (including shareholders with decent dividend) Low risk, cash rich.
- As growing business, moving into new territories (S/East) where loans should be bigger. Also have taken opportunities to move existing shops into better locations when leases come up for renewal.
- High gold price, due to global tensions (Ukraine, Gaza) = Massive positive here!
- Cost of living crisis, where lots of people need short term loans.
- Lower cost jewellery popular

Lastly, business has had best year but share price at 200p, is 30% below year high price (due to Institutional Investors reducing holding - perhaps because they have returned private investors cash - who have jumped into US tech stock / AI bandwagon....which is probably a bubble) I expect investors to return into AIM soon, as we have seen on FTSE350 last month.

Personally I believe this is a rock solid investment at this level and broker target 290p is easily achievable later this year.

Thanks Sheffield Owls,

I've contacted Peter a few times and he always comes back quickly and with good feedback. Recently I contacted him about the Downing Fund apparent anomaly, where they were planning on winding up the Micro Cap Fund (including selling RFX shares) and returning funds to Investors; yet on the other hand opening up a new Fund, focused on IHT preservation, which perversely included buying RFX shares! Peter's thoughts at the times was that I should take this up with Downing.
I suspect that he wouldn't want to offend any Fund investing in RFX and would say that it would be best to contact Otus in this circumstance.

Having crunched the numbers, it appears that Otus big reduction this time is around 1.5m shares sold, and there have been some big trades over the last week. There may have been other players at work over the last few months when the share price has stagnated around 190p and price doesn't rise, however many private buyers such as yourself(and me)add to their portfolios.

We can only hope eventually, these sellers finish and move on elsewhere and also that private investors return, as they see the UK share market moving upwards as the macro situation improves.

Well there we go - OTUS reduce from 9.61% to 4.95%. Good news in a way, as at least the large seller has finally declared their new, lower holding and share price should recover to over £2.00, IMO.

However, surely there is an acceptable (legal?) timeline for reporting to the market? Most Funds who reduce, show a gradual reduction and a number of Holding RNS's declaring their gradual change in position.

I can't believe that one massive step down in holdings as OPUS have declared for 13/5/24; which have clearly happened over months and declared as one change in position is acceptable notification?

Milkwood blocked Downing from selling their RFX holding in their Micro Fund; and rather bizarrely Downing are now adding RFX to their new IHT fund...
Looks like there is another seller somewhere...probably forced due to private investors withdrawing monies from a fund.
Crazy, with AIM stocks being massively undervalued, and RFX being one of the most solid stocks out there. Any sensible PI would be filling their boots at this level!

Spotted something interesting about Downing Funds:
On the one hand they are closing down their Strategic Micro Cap Investment trust fund which included a declared 9.99% holding in RFX, but on the other hand they are inviting private investors to put funds into their AIM Estate Planning Service ISA in readiness for the new tax year.

And yes, you've guessed it, this includes putting money back into RFX! One of the shares featured in their on line prospectus.

I guess having sold off and driven down the share price of RFX over months to return capital to their old investors, they will then build a new holding in RFX pushing the share price back up for their new investors!!

If I'm correct, its crazy stuff..

BaseM1 - RFX has never been rated a "growth stock", although it has grown (revenue up 27% in last year) and will continue to grow, albeit slightly slower!

The key metrics here are:

Market Capex at £1.80 = £56.97m
Net cash = £5.039m
Pre tax profit = £10.1m
Dividend = 10.1p (5.6% yield)

So if you were wealthy enough, you could buy this business, and it would pay for itself in about 5 years!!!!

A screaming bargain - we just need to wait for the 2 funds who are selling / closing to clear their positions and share price will rise again. Unfortunately many Private Investors have sold their positions at rock bottom prices, due to fear that there is something amiss.

The only risks here in my opinion are
a) People no longer buying high end watches (we've seen this with WOSG), but we know people bought cheaper watches / jewellery instead.
b) Higher energy costs (not coming down) and higher minimum wages - both recognised by the Board in their RNS updates.
c) Gold price dropping if conflict in Gaza / Ukraine cease, hopefully.

Against that there are loads of positives
a) Demand for pawnbrokers
b) RFX have added more shops including in S East and moved to better parts of towns when leases came up for renewal, for better footfall.
c) More people travelling abroad should increase demand for FX
d) No debt, profitable business with good dividend. I see this as the type of business that small investors will pile back into when the BoE drop base rate and banks / buildings societies drop savings account rates.

Personally I'm not keen on share buybacks. All they seem to do is allow sellers more liquidity to sell, and to improve the EPS for the Directors to get better bonuses. They hardly ever seem to improve the share price.

I'd much rather have special dividends, if there is cash to spare or pay off debt where companies have debt (obviously not the case with RFX)

As I've said before, its just a waiting game. When joe public sees the UK economy improving and bank interest rates start to drop as base rate falls, they will return to shares looking for better returns.

Absolutely 100% agree riverman - Same thing happened at MEGP, with Fidelity selling off their MEGP shares and driving down the share price 35%. Then results are published (exactly as per trading update and guidance a couple of months ago) and the share price lifts 20% in a day and everyone wants to buy in!

The reality is that there are few private investors buying AIM at the moment, either haven't got cash; putting money into building societies paying 5% interest or just scared about UK economic climate.

And that pretty sad really, as there are loads of absolute bargains to be found; great small companies producing record results, but unloved by the general public.

Of course, once it becomes clear that the UK economy is growing again and the funds start to buy again, joe public will also get involved - but by then the bargains will have gone..

RFX share price at 212p is a screaming buy. However private investors and funds seem in short supply at the moment. I'm expecting an excellent update on Monday and hopefully some media coverage to bring the buyers back!

Thanks tole for useful information.

Clearly there is an anomaly here with the share price v value of business based on excellent results.

So what's it going to take to get price up to a realistic level? My thoughts:

a) Broker upgrade and / tipsters like Simon Thompson at Investors Chronicle or Midas etc in the main stream media (Mail, Times, Telegraph) telling readers that share price is an anomaly and massively undervalued. Rate a "screaming buy"!!

b) Institutional investors buying more.

Now here's the weird part - I've been back through the Holding RNSs and the last 6 are declarations that funds have reduced slightly.

Otus Capital have reduced 12.31% to 10.94%; Downing Trust have reduced 10.37% to 9.99%; Close Asset Management 11.17% to 10.99%; Dartington 6.05% to 3.56%.

Now it may just be Funds taking some profit; trimming positions slightly etc in a gloomy market for shares when people can get 5% on deposit accounts..

However by selling some blocks, its more shares in free circulation; i.e. more potentially that can be traded and not in "sticky hands". So just a few more PIs selling each day (as they need cash for day to day living expenses etc, can drive price down hard)

Conclusion - We clearly we could do with another fund buying to show support for the business at the current level and reduce the free float of shares.
