jeffian: GabsterX, The shares are very tightly held with little liquidity so for the vast majority of investors, it is simply off the radar. In those circumstances, the market takes a lazy approach of lumping together all those businesses it sees as being in the same 'area' and marking them up/down together. This will be tainted by the 'secondary lenders' tag, so problems at, say, Provident Financial will be assumed here too. The market may not even have grasped that we're no longer a 'doorstep lender' in the sense that some of them still think Whitbread is a brewer! Like you, I just rely on the fundamentals and let management get on increasing earnings and dividends. The share price will follow in due course.

gabsterx: I still cannot understand how S&U can remain undervalued for so long, it seems the better their results are the lower the share price goes.. which of course for a value investor is an ideal scenario! This means a higher starting dividend yield with a very strong CAGR and a safe payout ratio coupled with an upside potential on capital gains due to the depressed share price While it's true that impairments are rising, I doubt the management's cautious approach would sacrifice quality of receivables for the sake of growth, they have not done so in 18 years and I don't see this as a red flag.

gabsterx: 5 year average PE is 15 which means share price should be around 3,500 if you follow historical trends. I had done a more conservative dividend growth model approach that gave me 2,925 Next Div 117 Growth Rate 5% Discount Rate 9.0% GGM Value: 2,925.00 Conclusion, I just bought 100 more shares :)

cwa1: Hoping this hasn't been posted before. Edison analysis:- http://www.edisoninvestmentresearch.com/research/report/su769468/full Snippet:- Outlook While there is regulatory concern over the growth in consumer lending in general, including the overall motor finance market, S&U does not offer PCP contracts, which have been the main source of growth and concern in this area. With most of its lending being used to fund used cars (average loan c £6,200), which provide customers with transport to work, S&U sees its main risk exposure as being to a worsening of credit conditions generated by higher unemployment rather than a fall in motor residual values (see page 5). Meanwhile, although unit sales of second-hand cars have softened, there is still scope for S&U to gain market share (from c 1%) and it reports robust and good quality demand. Valuation: Still cautious Taking into account our peer comparison and a valuation based on an ROE/COE model, we maintain our valuation at 2,700p per share suggesting significant upside from the current share price. Reversing the ROE/COE calculation suggests that the current price is factoring in a cautious cost of equity of nearly 12%.

westcountryboy: Hi jeffian - don't shoot the messenger! I am just looking for explanations of share price weakness. What is your reasoning as to why the share price is lower than it was 3.5 years ago? cheers WCB

jeffian: The continued share price weakness is disappointing but I suspect it is a result of the market's lack of understanding of this little-followed company. The fact that it is generically in 'car financing' has probably tarred it with the brush started by the Governor of the BoE, despite it not being in the sort of loan/rental business pushed by the big dealerships which were under suspicion. I bet people also still associate it with 'doorstep lending', despite it exiting that business, and recent concerns about Provident Financial's 'home collection' model may be reading across to SUS. In the longer term, growing profits and dividends will support the share price but at the moment we seem a bit unloved.

jeffian: As mentioned above, the SUS share price seems decidedly nervy recently and I wonder whether it has to do with reports in today's papers that the Govt are thinking of cracking down on car finance schemes which seem to be a big factor behind the increase in private debt. From what I have read, they seem to be mainly worried about the contract hire/leasing deals offered by dealers and manufacturers but I am not clear whether this is the model used by S&U's Advantage Finance. I get the impression theirs is a are traditional 'Hire Purchase' sort of scheme. Is this a threat to S&U's business model?
