DAILY MAIL - Investment Extra Popular Shares - Saga It has been a pretty gloomy run for retirement firm Saga and its army of 180,000 retail investors. Floated for £2.1billion in 2014, it has failed to wow investors and is now worth just £414million. Shares have tanked from a launch price of 185p to 36.93p – a brutal 80 per cent drop. Chief executive Lance Batchelor paid the price and is stepping down in January. But look behind the terrible headlines and the £391million debt pile and there could be a good business here. Saga's over-50s market is made up of affluent people, and it is launching a new membership scheme. Next month it takes delivery of a new cruise ship, along with a second vessel in 2020. Cruising is expected to grow by 22.5 per cent over the next five years according to data firm Mintel, much faster than the overall holiday market. In insurance, Saga has introduced a pioneering policy where prices stay the same for three years, meaning loyal customers are not ripped off. As the firm has said, there will be a short, sharp hit to profits but in the long run it could be a popular driver of business. So with shares now so low and new blood poised to take charge, this could just be the right time to buy in. https://www.dailymail.co.uk/money/investing/article-7143127/INVESTMENT-EXTRA-Just-safe-star-fund-managers.html

70% drop since profit warning. At this rate most of the board will be booted out on Wednesday at the AGM.

x3 one million share trades listed as 'buys' at 1636 but these were actually sells given the 10% drop today - no doubt FTSE350 trackers still dumping. 2x usual volume. Apparently for every seller there's a buyer?

IMHO its either the tracker funds bailing, or Standard Life are continuing to exit their sizeable position Looking at SETS, the supply of sell orders is absolutely relentless

? I'm looking at it as a multiple - as with PE ratio. But instead of just share price (equity), I am looking at equity plus debt - a more comprehensive view and which reflects the true position rather than just equity. Anyone can go and buy earnings - but with what, equity or debt or both? That is what enterprise value reflects. Not sure why you refer to writing down debt in a single year. Anyway, rest assured I won't be buying these.

Your handle sums up your hypothesis in your post #2183 You seem to be writing down the debt in a single year, which, by implication suggests that the enterprise itself is worthless. The enterprise is profitable. The profits are sufficient to service the additional debt that is incurred in the commission of these ships. These ships are likely to be in service for at least 20 and quite possibly 30 years, I would have thought and require cosmetic refurbishment of state and prestige cabins every 5-7 years and general cabins every 8 years. Provided that punters like their cruise, believe that they are getting value for money, then they are likely to return, perhaps with an increased spend or upgraded facility.
