moorsie2: Lowest target price analyst has just raised its target price JEFFERIES RAISES ROYAL MAIL PRICE TARGET TO 500 (450) PENCE - 'HOLD'
lefrene: You seem determined to offer arguments that excuse protectionist behaviour of competitor countries that have postured as our friends whilst doing their level best to destroy our industry. Others do carry mail in the UK including DHL, they could deliver door to door but it's much cheaper to drop it off at RMG distribution centres for RMG to carry out the very expensive 'last mile'. A lot of mail contracted to the likes of DHL and UK Mail often gets carried by third party hauliers. A common source of mail is utility companies, where a single deck trailer can carry 250k letters for which the carrier will likely make £50k for a modest 300 mile round trip, but will only pay the subbie haulier £1k or less. I've seen it from both sides having in the past employed circa 200 drivers myself. The regulations re the workman were entirely bogus, since on the same site there were unqualified former East German workers. The real problem turned out to be that my brickies were several times faster than the German brickies, partly pure skill, and partly that German brickies quite literally cannot read plans and have to be directed by a foreman (whom they call an architect) every metre of the way. I solved the problem by setting up a new company and entering into a contracted price for the job, with my men on piece rates. You never saw a small block of eight flats get fired up so fast, the East Germans were pushed off the job for being too inefficient. It was following regulations to the letter that brought about the Grenfell tragedy. Over regulation breeds a certain type of lawyerism, where the reasons for regulations get kicked into the long grass in favour of 'meeting the words of the regs' whilst deliberately overlooking common sense. Oddly enough the culture of Royal Mail is exactly that, a civil service mentality that likes to tick boxes without questioning if it is relevant or helpful to what they are doing.
lefrene: Moorise2, I did contract work for RMG, and it was quite a bone of contention that RMG were not permitted to carry mail in Germany, only German nationals are allowed to carry German mail. I have also had the experience of taking British construction workers to Freiberg only to be told by the police that a permit would be required for each worker, who was obliged to produce documentary proofs of a 7 year apprenticeship which must be translated into German but only by a native German! The permit might then take 6 weeks to 6 months! I had to resort to 'technical devices' to get my men working. I had a similar experience in France which was solved with flattery and bribery. I have no illusions about how protectionism operates in France and Germany, I suspect much of the EU is the same, why do you think all those Polish plumbers and sparkies come to the UK, it's because we were true Europeans, and not protectionist racketeers bent on rooking our 'friends'.
moorsie2: Lefrene - for a person with a French 'handle' your knowledge of workings of European countries is extradorinarily poor... What regulation bans RMG operating in Germany? I will help you here - none
lefrene: It's the EU slanted table that's so objectionable, ie only German nationals are allowed to carry German mail thus RMG not allowed in, but you will notice our roads still have DHL (German post office) trucks all over the place. That and some other 'spanish practices' were my reasons for voting out of the 4th Reich.
lefrene: It's had a very good run, some of that parcel business will drop away once shops re-open, and I doubt RMG has changed it's culture in the past 12 months. No doubt there has been a rush to increase capacity across the parcel shifting industry, which suggests that if demand were to slip a little, then parcel rates would fall. Valued at £5 billion, seems somewhat rarified imo in a utility industry with fairly low barriers to entry.
moorsie2: Could see a 20 to25p dividend to shareholders with 700m op earnings. They were paying 25p before on 500m op earnings. If they do that then this should rerates by 50p to 100p just by becoming a 3% plus dividend payer to share price. Then good projections for this financial year coming putting another 150m on that number and we are talking a share price more like 700to 750

brut winky: An Intrinsic Calculation For Royal Mail plc (LON:RMG) Suggests It's 29% Undervalued Simply Wall St. Simply Wall St ,Simply Wall St.•17 September 2020 In this article we are going to estimate the intrinsic value of Royal Mail plc (LON:RMG) by estimating the company's future cash flows and discounting them to their present value. We will use the Discounted Cash Flow (DCF) model on this occasion. Don't get put off by the jargon, the math behind it is actually quite straightforward. Remember though, that there are many ways to estimate a company's value, and a DCF is just one method. For those who are keen learners of equity analysis, the Simply Wall St analysis model here may be something of interest to you. See our latest analysis for Royal Mail Step by step through the calculation We use what is known as a 2-stage model, which simply means we have two different periods of growth rates for the company's cash flows. Generally the first stage is higher growth, and the second stage is a lower growth phase. To start off with, we need to estimate the next ten years of cash flows. Where possible we use analyst estimates, but when these aren't available we extrapolate the previous free cash flow (FCF) from the last estimate or reported value. We assume companies with shrinking free cash flow will slow their rate of shrinkage, and that companies with growing free cash flow will see their growth rate slow, over this period. We do this to reflect that growth tends to slow more in the early years than it does in later years. Generally we assume that a dollar today is more valuable than a dollar in the future, so we discount the value of these future cash flows to their estimated value in today's dollars: 10-year free cash flow (FCF) forecast 2021 2022 2023 2024 2025 2026 2027 2028 2029 2030 Levered FCF (£, Millions) -UK£94.4m UK£162.8m UK£68.5m UK£215.4m UK£305.5m UK£372.0m UK£430.0m UK£478.6m UK£518.1m UK£550.0m Growth Rate Estimate Source Analyst x4 Analyst x4 Analyst x4 Analyst x2 Analyst x2 Est @ 21.77% Est @ 15.6% Est @ 11.29% Est @ 8.27% Est @ 6.15% Present Value (£, Millions) Discounted @ 11% -UK£85.1 UK£132 UK£50.1 UK£142 UK£181 UK£199 UK£207 UK£208 UK£202 UK£194 ("Est" = FCF growth rate estimated by Simply Wall St) Present Value of 10-year Cash Flow (PVCF) = UK£1.4b After calculating the present value of future cash flows in the initial 10-year period, we need to calculate the Terminal Value, which accounts for all future cash flows beyond the first stage. For a number of reasons a very conservative growth rate is used that cannot exceed that of a country's GDP growth. In this case we have used the 5-year average of the 10-year government bond yield (1.2%) to estimate future growth. In the same way as with the 10-year 'growth' period, we discount future cash flows to today's value, using a cost of equity of 11%. Terminal Value (TV)= FCF2030 × (1 + g) ÷ (r – g) = UK£550m× (1 + 1.2%) ÷ (11%– 1.2%) = UK£5.7b Present Value of Terminal Value (PVTV)= TV / (1 + r)10= UK£5.7b÷ ( 1 + 11%)10= UK£2.0b The total value is the sum of cash flows for the next ten years plus the discounted terminal value, which results in the Total Equity Value, which in this case is UK£3.4b. To get the intrinsic value per share, we divide this by the total number of shares outstanding. Compared to the current share price of UK£2.4, the company appears a touch undervalued at a 29% discount to where the stock price trades currently. The assumptions in any calculation have a big impact on the valuation, so it is better to view this as a rough estimate, not precise down to the last cent. dcf dcf More The assumptions We would point out that the most important inputs to a discounted cash flow are the discount rate and of course the actual cash flows. Part of investing is coming up with your own evaluation of a company's future performance, so try the calculation yourself and check your own assumptions. The DCF also does not consider the possible cyclicality of an industry, or a company's future capital requirements, so it does not give a full picture of a company's potential performance. Given that we are looking at Royal Mail as potential shareholders, the cost of equity is used as the discount rate, rather than the cost of capital (or weighted average cost of capital, WACC) which accounts for debt. In this calculation we've used 11%, which is based on a levered beta of 1.414. Beta is a measure of a stock's volatility, compared to the market as a whole. We get our beta from the industry average beta of globally comparable companies, with an imposed limit between 0.8 and 2.0, which is a reasonable range for a stable business.
lefrene: netcurtains, WIn and RMG are too completely different types of business, the only thing they have in common is that they operate trucks from large buildings, but the work they do is totally different. It's possible RMG have more legacy real estate assets? RMG has been running mail at a loss for years, and without it it would be profitable. IMO RMG has been shorted in order for shares to be accumulated at a lower price by someone who wants to get on the Board. That short being closed imv is what moved the price yesterday, and I would expect to see a holdings rns soon. The way to extract value is to separate the parcels operation from the mail, and just let the mail company go bust. At which point common sense can step in and the mail side allowed to operate as a business, instead of a gold plated social service.
