jeffian: For the avoidance of doubt (#1616) I meant "out of" the commercial property business, not SUS! I remain a shareholder here.

essentialinvestor: Share price may be targeting the March low circa £14.20. If that goes then around £12 may be another interesting level imv.

tudes100: It's all about bad debt provision. I like SUS, I'm an ex holder, but it's difficult to see how bad debt is not going to rise significantly over the next 12 mths

gabsterx: Don't understand the sell-off, given the situation you'd think people would be shunning new cars in favor of second hand. This was evident by the record number of applications received. hxxps://www.express.co.uk/life-style/cars/1323685/used-car-sales-record-demand-second-hand-vehicles-price-rise

pugugly: As usual family silver in safe family hands https://www.investegate.co.uk/s---38--u-plc--sus-/rns/preliminary-results/202004080700051363J/ Looks well placed to survive the virus - Will certainly be the odd cough on the way but in the words of the Chairman will emerge stronger Totasl Dividends also increased and final will be paid "We have therefore concluded that despite current uncertainties, we should recommend a payment of a final dividend of 50p per ordinary share (2019: 51p) to shareholders on the register at the 19th June 2020. This means that total dividends this year will be 120p per share (2019: 118p) with this total dividend being again covered nearly exactly twice (2019: 1.98). As usual, final dividend will be subject to the approval of shareholders at our AGM, which will now be held by remote means on 9th June 2020. Back to sleep to another year - provided (fingers crossed) still alive!!!

jeffian: Indeed, but the market is emotional and never seems to differentiate between different businesses if it thinks - rightly or wrongly - they are in the same sector so I fear a Pavlovian reaction to any adverse comment about car loans. You will note that SUS also reacts badly to any bad news about 'doorstep lending' even though it has disposed of that business entirely. Mr. Market is an irrational beast.

ilostthelot: Alright Chris, you're right the world will recover as will good quality stocks like SUS. China already looking alot better.. There is great bargains to be had. Rdsb look good just with a long term view currently paying 15% divi.. Not to bad. They're pricing in a divi cut there. There is loads of good opportunities just now but cheap could become cheaper.. AAZ back to 80p nearly 10% dividend the now.

breezer_42: Copied from the note: Guidance re-iterated S&U this morning released a trading update in which they re-iterated guidance in the face of weaker consumer sentiment and economic activity. Full year results mainly depend on collections in the next two months, but management is confident that the 20-year uninterrupted run of growth in profits at Advantage Motor Finance will continue. Advantage (Motor) Finance Advantage Finance provides Hire Purchase Agreements to fund used cars at an average price point of c.£6,000 up to a maximum term of 60 months. It has grown its profit every year since inception in 1999. Perhaps surprisingly given the headlines about the new car market, the used car finance market has proven robust with volumes up 2% YoY according to the Finance & Leasing Association. Impressively Advantage’s volumes advanced have risen 11% YTD, but it’s worth noting that this has come at the cost of increased sales incentives to brokers. The increase reflects a strategic choice to increase the number of internet leads and increase lead quality but will have cost Advantage some gross margin. Customer numbers have hit a record 63,500 (31st July 62,000) and net receivables now exceed £280m (31st July £274m), slightly ahead of our forecast of £278m for the full year. Full year results mainly depend on collections in the next two months. At the same time Advantage has slightly increased book quality, with monthly collections up 7% on receivables up 5% and risk adjusted yield up 30bps to 25.2% of average monthly receivables. Risk adjusted yield is calculated as (revenue – impairments)/average net receivables. This metric examines the quality of the loan book by showing ‘clean’ revenue as a percent of loans outstanding. Aspen (Property) Bridging Aspen provides 1st charge unregulated bridging loans on residential, commercial, and semi-commercial property across the UK yielding on average just over 1% per month for 6-18 month terms. The nascent property bridging business continues to grow, but has not performed quite so well in some respects. The company noted that ”some borrower exits are still slower than anticipated” due to market conditions. We believe this is a reflection of the fall in housing transaction volumes rather than any risks associated with individual borrowers. However, depending on repayments/new loans issued in the final quarter, the loan book, currently at £28m, looks like it may end up slightly ahead of our £28.8m expectation for the full year. Group Utilisation of the £160m of debt facilities (£132m) leaves significant headroom for growth. We don’t think it is necessary to amend our forecasts on the back of this broadly positive trading update, but we note the increased acquisition costs will likely start to reduce gross margin slightly. We will revisit the numbers as part of a full review after the full year results have been released early in 2020.

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?
