moorsie2: Rmg should be one of the few winners from the new 6 week lockdown announcement...
lefrene: arbus5000, this is the busiest time of year for RMG with lots of temporary workers brought in. Things can get delayed by accidentally being mis-sorted, ie being put into the wrong trolley and thus going onto the wrong truck. Then when it gets spotted it ends up in another trolley of mis-sorts waiting to go back to the hub. Everybody is busy, there's short term staff often not very interested in what they are doing, and things that would get noticed in normal times, can end up parked against a wall in an unmarked trolley. It's no excuse for RMG, but it gives you an idea of how once something goes awry, a package can remain an orphan for longer than one might think.
arbus5000: i wont, and let me explain: I origionally invested in RMG on the thesis that there's value in going to everyone's house - not just to deliver mail, but also to be a part of the local community and check on the welfare of the most vulnerable members of society, delivering medication etc. This is something you can't automate, so focus on that. Unfortunately, in many areas the postal works are miserable, refuse to say hi, or even indicate appreciativeness when you give way to their little red vans. I am sorry if they feel insecure about their jobs, covid etc, but the pandemic and the spectre of joblessness isn't just confined to the mailing centers you know. Not everyone was given a huge amount of shares or golden plated pensions etc. The world has moved on. Finally, and this relates to internet research for every delivery service is that it gets polluted by complaints by users, and everyone is a customer who may have experienced delays or another, which can be very very frustrating from a customer's point of view (Gecko above has been remarkbly sanguine about it and i applaud that). Posters on this forum sometimes loose sight of the fact this forum is about shares. Personally, I would be happy if the gas bill gets delayed in the post but it never does. what does get delayed is the (hypothetical) missing piece, that i've ordered at great expense, to complete the (hypothetical) puzzle that i have been working on for the last decade. Highly infuriating. This is only a hypothetical example, but when you order something first class, you hope to get it by the end of the week - it could be a cable for your TV for example etc The customer is then at a loss wether to wait another 2 weeks for the cable, or to buy another one and end up with two - just because his postie put a parcel in the wrong slot, as he has just found out he's being cheated on by his wife, with someone with a more dynamic outlook on life etc
subhi2008: Any news regarding RMG? share price going up..
eaaxs06: Has anyone got any idea when the home-test contract outcome will be announced? It would certainly give the share price a massive boost if RMG won it. Good luck everyone, Sid.
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.
1982roni: Lot of Royal Mail small share holders are spooked and selling while there are after market closes huge major share buys. The big boys are purchasing after markets close. True value of Royal Mail Share price is between £2.50 and £3.00. Don't be spooked. I am going to hang on to my 30,000 shares at average price £2.03 and I am considering buying more. It is a bargain below £1.90
brut winky: I was talking to someone who works for British gas as a service engineer, they used to use RMG for distribution of parts to the engineers, now they use an outfit that drops all the parts at lockers at their local Tesco's, he was not happy, new circuit boards that where wet, also wrong parts in scabby packaging. RMG used to do home delivery that was always correct and packaged well, the new lot are not cutting it. As for the share price, it looks about stable after the retracement of 32%, so if it holds from here it's in a strong uptrend really and with an existing holder building their holding.
arbus5000: Finally someone has come to their senses, and citibank has upgraded its share price target for RMG to 210p. rationale: Our upgrade is predicated upon two points: 1. A significant & recent acceleration in parcel volumes; and 2. An attractive & nuanced valuation. Since the lockdown, e-commerce volumes have seen a significant boost both in the UK and in Europe. The evidence is ample. According to BRC data, online non-food sales were up +18.8% for the five weeks ending 4th April. Moreover, Kuehne + Nagel in its Q1’20 results yesterday reported that, “(The) Contract Logistics (division) handled twice as many e-commerce shipments as in the previous quarter.” The relevance of this is that Royal Mail is the leading parcel operator in the UK with more than 50% market share of total parcel volumes. It is also the holder of the majority of the B2C segment both domestically at Royal Mail and abroad at GLS. In other words, Royal Mail is acutely exposed to this accelerating e-commerce theme. We estimate for every 1% annual increase in volume, earnings rise and fall by c.20%. Citi’s Q4’20 forecast for parcel volumes is +9% (vs. consensus of c.+6%) and in FY’21 Citi expects +13% (vs. consensus of c.+8%). While this only leaves Citi’s forecasts in line with consensus for FY’20 (given cost pressures from FY’20), the FY’21 (full-year beneficial effect) leads us to being +400% above consensus operating profit (albeit with small numbers playing a role). The stock is down c-38% YTD versus peers at c-27%. This comes with good backward-looking reason given obvious pressures in letters and advertising mail at a time of lockdown. But we see value at Royal Mail. As an example and to contextualize the current £1.5bn market cap and £300mn of net debt, the real estate value alone at Royal Mail is c.£830m. Moreover, even on a rudimentary DCF valuation for UKPIL, we achieve a valuation for Royal Mail’s UK operations of c.£1.40 per share versus today’s share price of £1.50 (EV/EBIT 5x). At the very least, this implies the GLS parcel business is receiving almost free optionality in the shares. And, for clarity, our target price of £2.10 implies a GLS value of a modest 4x EV/EBIT.
