angersharkz: I’ve just been back to previous statements and I will agree that you are correct about the current guidance and it remains unchanged. I have been in and out of RMG a few months back and I was pretty certain that they had said they would not be issuing guidance until the next update but you are quite right it remains unchanged. With regards to the way companies word their statements, I think they are very careful about their wording as often times they are treading on very thin ice. They way in which we (the investors) interpret these statements and figures is what creates a market I suppose. I still see RMG very cheap at the current price and they are still bullish with regards to H2 and beyond….with an air of caution, as are most recent company reports coming out of an unprecedented pandemic.
rmillaree: "From what I can gather they were reluctant to give any guidance with regards to future earnings until the latest update" imho this isn't correct - they clearly stated they are "maintaining the outlook"- you cant get simpler than this statement - they had a prior outlook and that outlook is unchanged as confirmed in the text below. You do have a point here though - it gets over complicated when companies use sketchy wording and or rely on brokers to do their job for them . Even if the company is sketchy there are 14 brokers that fill in the blanks and if the average of those differs materially from what the company expect they reaally should update everyone accordingly - that being the case with large caps current brokers forecasts should cloesely match expectations of the company even if the company is reluctant to say it!. Hopefully there is a decent chance here they are sandbagging somehwat which i don't like - but with covid and teh like i will give them a pass in that hopefuly its sensible caution. To me i am keeping it simple and going with what they said below and the average of what brokers think - nothing more and nothing less. i much prefer it when companies (Next gold standard) simplsy give a range of numbers and update that range during the year - saves all the hassle of trying to work out what is and isnt being said that matters - i dont matter if its a huge range just give me the high and low estimates of what you think may happen. " we maintain our outlook for the full year of low single digit % revenue growth and c. 8% operating margin."" "It does seem strange that you presume profits will not resume at current levels for whatever reason as you put it seems overly bearish without evidence but each to their own. Good luck." I didn't actually mean to say that at all - what i was trying too say that the market in general has this on cheap rating which suggests the market thinks profits are likely to drop in the future or stay static and decrease in real terms - i have no idea what will happen medium to long term. You think (i preume) they will be fine - others seem them as structurally weak - me i simply am clueless and own due to the curernt cheap rating for this year and next (i also did follow someone who i respect into this share if i am being honest - but it was solely my choice to buy and not theirs) .
rmillaree: To me the main takeaway from the update was that they simply maintained previous guidance ref sales and margins. So there was zilch change with regard to where they expect to be at year end - they had the chance to upgrade expectations and made a point of not doing so. I do agree this is somewhat puzzling as the h1 numbers seem to be half of the current year end expectations. I do not know if they are leaving something in the tank for the next update hope so) or if h2 may be less better than normal - I simply default to presuming the worst albeit I am hoping for the best. With regard to shares being cheap or a value trap - on current and next year numbers they are stunningly cheap - must admit i never thought I would be buying here (too unionised and they seem to be behind the game on tech) but here I am (I only bought in the last month or so) due to the current cheapness. Ref value trap the market has priced these shares at an el cheapo price so imho it could be me that is wrong thinking there is value here - if that is the case my presumption is that future profits will not remain at current levels for whatever reason. To me the recent update was fine as there was no specific bad news and they did say ref parcel volume they do now expect volumes will not return to pre covid lower levels which is good news. In summary my investment here is semi punt with low level of confidence - that tactic may seem strange to some but it is what it is.
angersharkz: Rmillaree - I understand what you are saying, there will be a lot more demand on the postal services during the winter months given the various seasonal festivities and Christmas…..would it not be logical too assume then that given the optimistic statement and strong H1 performance that this years H2 will follow suit? Also you mentioned that you were concerned that RMG is a value trap? With a market capitalisation of 4.8bn and a FY profit of circa 800-900m RMG shares at the current price are extremely cheap, would you not agree?
angersharkz: Rmillaree - ‘it’s not a given that profits will be higher in H2 to H1’ nothing in the markets is absolutely certain? Only a fool would think that. The statement clearly states that they are confident H2 profits will be greater than H1 and expecting overall profit in H1 to be around 400m…… it doesn’t take a brain surgeon to figure out they are on course to smash previous years profits. They also stated that they are confident that there has been a rebasing on revenue and the need for parcel delivery based on the figures for this year in comparison to pre pandemic levels. They also acknowledged rising costs but they seem to be mitigating that and factoring it into their positive outlook in H2 and beyond. You can be a bear about any share and run and hide in the markets all day long….sell your shares and move on? The statement was clearly a bullish one if it’s not for you sell up, simple.
careful: buy and hold is dead. Crazy volatility here. RMG should be a steady share. but 330 to 630, 630 to 120, 120 to 600 and now falling sharply again. Crazy. There used to be serious long term investors or short term traders. We are all forced to trade now. And those crazy target prices. The do not say target up 20% anymore. More like 200%. I saw a guy on CNBC saying that worthless Bitcoin, then valued at a crazy $2 trillion, would be less volatile when it was valued at $10 Trillion. And they let this clown get away with it.
careful: rmg share price behaving like Bitcoin. from 120p to almost 600p in just over 1 year.
wacko74: I may be wrong but I seem to recall the last time RMG were promoted to the 100 it had little to no impact on the share price?
lord loads of lolly: charlie9038 - 1) IQE bears no relation whatsoever to Royal Mail, so comparing the relative recent share price performance of the two is totally irrelevant IMHO. I only speak from experience of our own company’s dealings with Royal Mail, which became increasingly poor on both service & price. To the extent that we moved elsewhere, paying less for what’s - currently - a far better service with slicker back office tools. 2) I don’t hold Royal Mail shares, though I did buy in when they first floated, selling out several years ago at slightly above the price they are now. I’ve no intention of buying back in, but thought our commercial experience of the company might be of interest to other holders. 3) I don’t deramp IQE. Why would I when I’ve a decent holding already and have repeatedly stated I won’t be increasing it? I just use facts to counterbalance some of the more fanciful holders’ views.
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
