careful: There are two positive issues here. The first is that RMG are a labour intensive, not very efficient, company with a good top line, balance sheet whilst still profitable. A slight improvement in efficiency would improve the bottom line significantly. The second positive factor is that the share price is subdued because of the Corbyn effect. Corbyn will never get to no.10. I have a better chance of becoming the next James Bond or appear on Love Island than Corbyn being PM.
careful: Amazing that all of the above weaknesses were known 12 months ago and baked into the price of £6.30. We must have all thought that with a bit of tweaking here and there and a change of culture, then £8 per share here we come. Markets are mysterious how they react to irrational share price movements. Who would have guessed at £6.30 with a growing parcels business, a profitable overseas operation, even an agreement with Alibaba.... that lefrene would write just 12 months later when the price had crashed to £1.97, yield 13%, 'I am not tempted yet.'
careful: Always the last desperate throw of the dice for beaten down shareholders. They dream of some takeover at way above todays price. It helps them sleep and rarely happens. RMG have a potentially sound business and a strong balance sheet. The management are doing everything they can to reduce costs. The problem is that Moya Green settled an overgenerous deal will the unions that needs to be paid for. Efforts are being made. No one is that stupid, the whole team can see the share price. A good risk punt at these levels tempting for any level headed contrarian. All of those 'target prices'. just look at the record of those clowns long term. in the short term the share price is driven down, ..but todays share price is meaningless for serious investors. What will the total return here be over 5 years?
hermanngoring: Royal Mail shares are 'overvalued', says Deutsche Bank as it cuts target price 09:59 04 Jun 2019 The German bank said the structural decline in Royal Mail's addressed mail volumes will persist as volumes continue to shift to e-commerce channels Royal Mail Royal Mail's dividend yield looks expensive, according to Deutsche Bank's analysts Royal Mail Group PLC (LON:RMG) shares are “overvalued221;, Deutsche Bank said as it repeated a ‘sell’ rating and cut its target price to 150p from 180p. Deutsche Bank said Royal Mail’s shares may look like a ‘buy’ as the company expects a significant rebound in profits and cash flow as part of its five-year strategic plan. READ: Royal Mail plans 40% dividend cut to pay for next stage of turnaround “But in our view there are no easy short-/medium-term fixes for the Royal Mail as the business model is largely a fixed cost business, that is facing a material decline in letter volumes and has a unionised workforce,” the bank said. Last month, Royal Mail posted a 30% drop in adjusted pre-tax profit to £398mln on revenue up 2% to £10.58bn for the year to the end of March. The UK parcel and letters division, UKPIL, generated flat sales of £7.6bn as parcel revenue rose 7% on volumes up 8%, offset by letter revenue falling 6% as volumes declined 8%. Dividend yield 'looks expensive' against nearest peers Royal Mail raised its dividend by 4% to 25p per share but said it could cut the payout to 15p per share from 2019-20 to help pay for its new turnaround strategy. Deutsche Bank noted that setting a 15p dividend for the next five years puts the stock on a circa 7% dividend yield, which in its analysts view looks expensive against the UK firm's nearest peers Bpost and PostNL, with arguably both those companies further down the line in terms of restructuring than Royal Mail. Royal Mail’s new strategy is to broadly double operating profit over the next four years after it has fallen to a range of £300-340mln from £376mln in 2018-19. Deutsche Bank expects Royal Mail to post an operating profit of £420mln for 2023-24, compared to the company’s implied guidance of £600mln. Union pressures to hamper profits The investment bank said Royal Mail’s discussions with the Communication Workers Union will start shortly and given that management expects a sharp increase in profitability, it may be hard for the company to push back on the union’s demands for improved pay and conditions for their members. “When we look back over history at other European postal operators (e.g., Deutsche Post), we find that when a postal company is in restructuring mode, shareholders are typically not at the top of the stakeholder lists (e.g., Royal Mail dividend cut to 15p) as cash flows get diverted to the employees, complex restructuring/modernisation and M&A,” Deutsche Bank said. “This has resulted in periods of material share price underperformance.221; 'Light-touch' regulations mean Royal Mail could raise prices On the outlook for Royal Mail, Deutsche Bank said the structural decline in addressed mail volumes will persist as volumes continue to shift to e-commerce channels. However, the bank believes Royal Mail has a “light-touch regulatory framework” with only 5% of revenues subject to direct price controls. For this reason, Deutsche Bank thinks the decline in addressed letter volumes needs to be mitigated by stamp price increases, the ability to transform and significantly improve efficiency and growth from both the UK and European parcels businesses. “But improving cash flow and profitability at the RMG is in our view hard as the business is largely a fixed cost business and unionised,” it added. “We think that it is more difficult to modernise and take costs out of the business in an environment where GDP growth is weak and wage bill pressures persist due to low unemployment rates.” In morning trading, Royal Mail shares were up 3.6% to 201.6p.
unastubbs: Questor: Royal Mail inflicts a dividend cut on the Income Portfolio. Do we sell the shares or hold on? An unhappy milestone has been reached: the Questor Income Portfolio has suffered the first dividend cut from one of its stocks. Royal Mail announced on Wednesday that, while the divi for the year that ended in March would be increased by a penny to 25p a share, it would be cut by 40pc to 15p for the current financial year. Thereafter the ordinary dividend is likely to remain at 15p, with the possibility of top-ups from special divis if there is cash to spare. The money released by the dividend cut will be used to invest in a restructuring programme. Our previous analysis of the sustainability of Royal Mail’s dividend had focused on its apparent affordability in terms of cash generation and the existence of reserves. However, there was not much in the way of safety margin between the cash generated and what was required to pay the dividend, and the company has now said it needs to invest more to modernise the business. That investment, and expected lower cash flow in the early years of the restructuring programme, meant the dividend had to be cut. One aim of the transformation is to improve productivity and margins in the British operations, which will be increasingly “parcels led”. The GLS international arm is already a parcels and freight business so the focus there will be on growing sales while protecting margins. While restructuring plans can always go awry, or fail to deliver the benefits hoped for, we take some comfort from the new dividend policy. A cut in the divi is normally the last thing that company bosses want to preside over. In this case the chief executive, Rico Back, is in the clear because he took over only last year. A second dividend cut, however, would be another matter so we can feel reasonably sure that he and the board think the new level is sustainable. The fact that they can contemplate special payments on top is also reassuring. Even if we think the new dividend is sustainable, should we hold on to the shares? The 15p-a-share figure equates to a yield of 7.6pc at the current share price of 197.9p. It follows that, if we were to sell the shares now, we would need to find a replacement investment that yielded 7.6pc to avoid a further fall in the portfolio’s income beyond that caused by Royal Mail’s dividend cut. Such a figure automatically means a high level of risk, so we would risk swapping one troublesome asset for another. In fact, that 7.6pc yield seems too high in view of the reassurance we take from Royal Mail’s new policy. In other words, we think the shares have been punished excessively and could recover from here. Selling now would therefore cement a capital loss that seems out of proportion to the income damage we are sustaining. We will hold on.
arja: seems that so many talking o/t and forgetting to watch RMG share price has helped it to make a strong rally ! ( smile )
saltraider: Bubloo ... I will offer my opinion if you insist but, if I were you, I would ignore it. My recent record on RMG is not good. I called the last before this share price fall correctly and sold out at break-even. I was a happy investor ... impressed by my own prowess ... saved the day! On the first tick back up, I bought back in, taking advantage of the share price fall to increase my holding and expecting a comfortable ride on a firmly rising share price Since then, the share price has done nothing but fall, pretty much, and I am well out-of-pocket. At the moment, my inclination is more towards selling up and cutting my losses. I can't really find a story to tell about RMG that convinces me any more. I can see the share is cheap but I can't see why it should be anything else but cheap. Otherwise ... DYOR. I continue to hold but feel trapped, cheated and alone. P.S. Never let your emotions interfere with your judgement ;-)
exotic: Finally RMG share price going back up, and as usual on ADVFN frustrated doomsters appear. Let them get on with it, it won't change wherever this is heading.
goldpiguk: Hi, Taking a long term view RMG look good value. I did think of adding yesterday but a very wide spread (over £1) at the opening and then the strong share price rise put me off. This morning I have added another 1,000 shares in my ISA. Although I expect the RMG share price to remain volatile it does offer good long term value and good dividend growth potential. Current dividend estimates are: 2018 23.8p 2019 24.9p 2020 25.0p The long term investor will ride out any storms here and I will certainly look to add to my holding on any sharp pullbacks. Meanwhile I look forward to receiving the final dividend on July 28th Goldpig.
123qwer: This is the main reason RMG share price will hit new lows IMO Must read. I knew it was happening but not at this scale. About the pacels, just search for parcel delivery sites on google and see the price difference between smaller companies and RMG - IMO RMG cant compete and the smaller comapines have pick and drop off from your home, work and many other local points I can see RMG price crash very soon. Importantly, I am now finding RMG share price as easy to read as fracking SP ATB, DYOR/etc etc and consut a fincial broker, a few quid may save you a lot of money later
