Is this (chart) suggesting a break out soon?

I was being slightly tongue-in-cheek, Linhur. In these markets, anything that isn't outright bullish seems to be taken as a 'profit warning'. It'll be interesting to see how it is reported.

jeffian I think it was a mild warning about the motor side of the business. The good news was the november update on Aspen with the increase in business. All imho regards Linhur

I'm trying to work out if that's a 'profit warning'. Anything less than glowing enthusiasm seems to spook the market these days. Not that it bothers me; I hold these through thick and thin.

What a great interview. How could anyone not think this is the perfect long term investment. Capital returns and growing income. And currently undervalued giving a great entry point imo. Good luck.

It was this price back in 2013. Look how the business has grown since then! P/E under 10. Dividend yield now over 5%

Happy to take advantage and add a few. Don’t get that many decent opportunities. Retirement portfolio building these days so good regular divie payers are my main target.

I would. The Board already own 54% between them and even higher if the peripheral Coombs family holdings are taken into account.

Well you say that, Plasybryn, but look at the chart above! It's quite an illiquid stock so it is inclined to large movements. It doesn't bother me as long as the overall trend is up! I wondered about the recent fall and was interested that nobody sought to comment on it until your 1402. My suspicion is that fear about a market correction and the potential for a general economic downturn has hit this company particularly as it is perceived to be dealing with high credit-risk customers but that was always so - particularly when they were a door-to-door lender - and they seem to have been able to deal with it through many recessions in the past so I'm happy to leave my fate in the hands of the Coombs and their management team.

aleman i think the Chairman Anthony Coombes has explained perfectly well why credit approvals have reduced . This should lead to improved default rates going forward. I will take his explanation and tactics as the best way forward -very happy holder from £8. no need to tread warily -the shares are discounting the excellent growth going forward but also achieved so far .

I'm not persistently bearish at all. Roughly, I've been bullish from May 2003 to June 2006. Bearish from then until November 2008. Bullish until sometime in 2016 - that's 8 years, including the European (PIIGS) bond crisis - and now bearish for a couple of years. I tend to be a bit ahead of the crowd as I monitor credit cycles quite a lot. They continue to deteriorate but that does not make me Dr Doom! I will turn bullish again before everyone else - after most or all of the fall - that is IF credit picks up again. This recession is likely to see more unconventional central bank responses. I did not "warn" in 2017. I was monitoring for potential purchase and asking questions. (Still no position either way here - I don't short.) I only really warned 6 months ago as there were a few familiar posters. I don't usually bother. I could be seen to be correct to suggest caution since provisions have grown rapidly since. I see I mentioned Claimant Count several months ago. It has deteriorated further and looks to be trending ominously (even though some newly unemployed are being bumped into Employment Support Allowance). Tread warily. https://www.ons.gov.uk/employmentandlabourmarket/peoplenotinwork/outofworkbenefits/timeseries/bcjd/unem Anyway, you've had my 2nd warning about credit quality, after it deteriorated more sharply this time. Good luck until next time.

Ah, Aleman, I remember you from the YLD thread where your persistently bearish views on life generally reminded me of Marvin The Robot! I see we have previously exchanged views 'here' as well. Yes, you did previously "warn" about SUS - starting on 28/3/17 - - that's a 30%+ gain missed, then! I have been invested in SUS since 2001 and have substantially increased my holding along the way. Yes, it involves itself in lending to people the banks wouldn't touch and has a certain loan default rate as a result, but the Coombs family have shown themselves adept at managing the risk, have a lot of skin in the game themselves and have also shown themselves to be sensitive to political and economic changes in the market (their disposal of the formerly core doorstep lending business proved a master-stroke of decision and timing). I'll consider myself "warned", but will happily continue to hold, thank you.

I've previously warned to be careful with this one. Look at note 7. In the last 6 months, Motor Finance receivables are up £19.95m while provisions are up £7.71m. The provisions increase was 38.6% of the receivables increase. If my numbers are correct, from the same note 7, the previous 6 months was 24.5%, and note 6 of the full year report indicates 19.2% for motor finance if you work it out. It makes it look like recent growth has been by lending to people who are not very good at paying back. Now imagine what happens if the economy slows.
