camo1997: Volume seems similar to yesterday. Loads of little buys, then a sell which pushes up the bid price, then buys again...
vullrich: hTTps://
camo1997: Unfortunately that always occurs with small cap's/low volume stocks. A consistent amount of small buys can make a huge change. Always see it with RPS, little trades of around £300, but does make a difference. Could be algos with buy limit's which are tiggered when the stock does start moving pushing it up further. Who knows...
pireric: Something I've spotted and some conspiracy theory from me. Someone has been very questionably trading (generous wording) on several stocks today with a huge amount of tiny trades. ZTF RPS HEAD IOM SFR TRI JOUL XPS No idea who, and I don't have an excuse for whoever is doing it, but look at the trade sizes across the stocks. Not a healthily functioning set of markets
wigwammer: Yes it has been going on since March, after which the share price has averaged around 44p, ie the the placing price. Not sure which part of this you find difficult.
dr biotech: Sorry didn’t read your post correctly, I assumed Andrew Sykes was a RPS Director, I’ve never heard of them. But yes it does appear divs are allowed, I stand corrected. But Having said that AS have a large Cash pile with excess capital. RPS arranged a RCF just in case they need it (hopefully won’t). Capital preservation the name of the game here for a while.
pugugly: Just checked 3 broker forecasts re future dividends - All 3 none for fy's 20 and 21- Two saying none for 22 and one suggesting 1.2p - So unless a possible capital gain through share price apprciation stagnant cash for 2 to 3 years with always the possibility of futher share price decline but again it might go up -
pugugly: Just realised first looked at this company back in 2002- OK some nice spikes on the way but now down some 65% from the price than file opened 18 Aug 2002 re Sunday Telegraph AT 121.5 Environmental services company RPS Group (121.5p) has recently announced strong results, with interim operating profits up by 31 per cent. The better-than-expected increase builds on the company's strong track record of increasing earnings by an average of 25 per cent annually over the past five years. The company is a beneficiary of the ever-increasing environmental regulation which has increased demands for its services. RPS, which operates mainly in the UK, Netherlands and Eire, is now moving into new markets, such as nuclear safety. So far it has done so through acquisitions which, overall, have proved earnings enhancing. Buy.
sphere25: Might be headed through 50p now. Peel Hunt has reinstated a recommendation on professional services firm RPS Group (RPS) as it confirmed increased banking facilities amid the Covid-19 crisis, sending the shares 20% higher yesterday. Analyst Christopher Bamberry gave the shares a ‘hold’ recommendation but kept the target price ‘under review’ as the group delivered a first quarter update. Profit before tax forecasts for 2020 have been reduced by 51%. ‘RPS has increased its banking facilities from £100m to £160m to provide additional flexibility,’ he said. ‘The Covid-19 impact is being partially mitigated through strong public sector exposure. In addition, a proportion of employees have agreed to either temporary reduced pay, temporary reduced hours, or to be placed on furlough.’ The shares rose 19.6% to 47p yesterday.
norbert colon: For anyone who works in this sector and follows it closely like myself (including M&A history) it’s worth reflecting on the WYG/Tetra Tech deal last year. Prior to announcement of the deal in May 2019 the shares were trading at circa 15p (mcap of GBP11m). With net debt of GBP10m the EV was circa GBP 20m (2 x mcap). Terra Tech paid 55p share, valuing the WYG Group at GBP 43.4m (78.9m shares) or ~0.3 x FY19 sales (low by peer Group comparison) Taking a look at RPS, it’s currently valued at GBP106m with an EV of GBP 206m when taking Group debt into account (2 x mcap as per WYG). With sales for FY20 now f/c at GBP 465m, a 0.3 x sales multiple would value RPS at GBP 140m (62p), a 32% premium to the current share price of 47p. This supports the current Liberum TP of 60p. With John Douglas (CEO) and other senior managers having bought a considerable amount of stock in the market over the last 9-12 months at prices from 100-140p, I anticipate any M&A (when it happens) to be at a much higher valuation than 60p but it will need sales to stabilise (or preferably return to growth) and net debt to be reduced. This will happen but it will take time. In the interim I can’t see the share price retesting the recent all-time lows unless there is a serious deterioration in trading or some other factor. The increased banking facilities (whilst at a fairly chunky cost) provide much-needed breathing space for mgt to focus their efforts on operations and clients. A positive update for shareholders and well done to those who took advantage of the recent share price weakness. I certainly did. Some of you may also be aware that John Douglas used to be MD of Coffey (Aus) who themselves were acquired by Tetra Tech in 2015. History doesn't repeat itself but it often rhymes....
