gfrae: trident,Monetising subscriber data is a new policy announced today. They have 2% of a £15bn market, so future potential is enormous, this is likely to be the future driver, and I think this is what has powered the share price since the presentation post results. They said that they were open to future acquisitions.
trident5: FT article covering the presentation. Https:// Seems there are two changes which have probably driven the stellar price increase the last year or so: - shutting down the acquisition policy; and - monetising subscriber data. I'm guessing the former has been more important than the latter in driving the share price.
this_is_me: Sell on the news kicks in. I still think the results give a slightly better picture than anticipated and expect the share price to resume an upwards trend again.
ironstorm: Great result all round. The UKs Facebook perhaps? Yes and no. The focus on quality content will set us apart. It is a great strategic positioning. However the digital monetisation that Facebook has should give an idea of future value. Once people start thinking that rather than he legacy distribution channel this should be on 20-30x earnings. A long way to go both operationally and in terms of the share price. Wowser.
buffett9: Thanks for the info ONJohn, really appreciate it. Given the recently failed short attack we should see support for Reach share price as the shortsellers close out their positions. These many other shorters seem to think they can emulate Muddy Waters with their press release soundbites. Difference is though, I've never seen Muddy Waters make a failed short attack.
onjohn: The rch share price is taking off like a nuclear warhead, 200p even
our haven: Middlesbrough fc. Why are you tipping on the Reach board? You do not even give any explanation as to why you are tipping these shares.I could steadily tip my portfolio but it will not up the share price of them.
lomax99: Yup:This Dividend Hero's Too Cheap To Miss Right NowAn environment of pressured ad budgets and declining newspaper sales has made investment in the publishing sector perilous business in recent years. This is reflected in some of the low earnings multiples of some of the industry's biggest players.Take Reach, for instance. This company is best known in the UK for publishing the Mirror, Express and Star line of national titles along with a glut of regional papers. It currently trades on a forward P/E ratio of 4.2 times, a reading which sits well below the widely-regarded bargain benchmark of 10 times.Print Sales In PerilIt's true that conditions remain far from ideal for Reach and its competitors. Like-for-like revenues amongst this particular operator's print division performed better in the period from July 1 to November 24, latest financials showed. A year earlier such sales tanked 8.2%. Still, a 7.3% fall didn't provide much for investors to celebrate.And what's more, recent research from the Advertising Association and marketing intelligence agency WARC predicts that print-generated sales will possibly worsen in 2020. The latest co-authored Expenditure Report suggests that falling physical ad sales will cause an estimated 2.5% drop in national newsbrand revenues for 2019 to deteriorate to a 3.3% reversal in 2020.The outlook looks pretty bleak for regional newsbrands in the print arena, too. On the plus side advertising sales here are expected to improve this year from an anticipated 10.3% drop in 2019. Unfortunately, though, an expected 5.4% fall doesn't provide a lot to be happy about.Digital Sales Dance HigherSo why am I about to tip Reach as a great share to load up on today, then? Well in better news that Advertising Association/WARC study suggests that ad revenues generated via online newsbrands will continue to pick up the pace.Across national titles. ad spend via cyberspace is expected to rise 5.2% year on year in 2020, up from a predicted 5.1% increase for last year. And for regional titles a 4.9% uptick is expected, up from the 4.6% advance for 2019.This is a trend which Reach in particular is in great shape to ride. It acquired the Express and Star titles back two Februarys ago in a bid to bulk up its online sales, a strategy that is already paying off handsomely.That aforementioned autumn trading update showed Reach's like-for-like digital revenues rise 14% in the five-or-so-months to the end of November, speeding up from the 9.3% rise of the same 2018 period. This, allied with fractionally-improved sales on the print side, helped like-for-likes at group level swing to a 4.4% increase from a 6.6% fall a year before.More To Come?These positive signals explain why Reach's share price has exploded in recent times. It's up 173% over the past 12 months. Yet that rock-bottom forward earnings multiple suggests that the publishing giant is still too cheap in light of its fast-improving profits outlook.There's much for income investors to like about Reach at current prices, too. Right now the FTSE 250 firm's 4.3% dividend yield for 2020 smashes the broader UK mid cap average by almost one-and-a-half percentage points. And thanks to its formidable balance sheet and improving earnings picture, shareholders can likely expect annual payouts to keep on marching higher beyond 2020, too.I believe, despite those monster share price gains of late, that Reach still provides plenty of upside right now.
kenmitch: trident5. All your points are valid, and a good explanation of the bear points. I could construct a bear case for every share I hold! But the key attraction with Reach (which unfortunately I paid far too little attention to when missing the chance to buy around 60p after their update last November) is the way Reach is switching emphasis to digital, with huge potential from that. Another big plus is that Reach already throws off loads of (approx £120 million) cash. Time will tell,but if all goes well current Reach share price could look a stunning bargain.
someuwin: Shares Mag yesterday did recommend taking profits on RCH. But only because it has risen 50% since they tipped it last month and they want to lock in profits. I'm keeping hold of mine as I think there's a lot more to come here. "...There has been no news since our article on 5 December to justify the strong share price performance – up nearly 50% – but even after such an impressive move the stock remains one of the cheapest on the UK market."
