Recent note: "Liberum: SIS shares remain cheap Science in Sport (SIS) has put the building blocks in place to deliver growth and its shares remain cheap, says Liberum. Analyst Adam Tomlinson retained his ‘buy’ recommendation and target price of 80p on the sports drinks company, which closed up 2.3%, or 1p, at 45p yesterday. After a ‘resilient full year 2020’ and a positive capital markets presentation, ‘the building blocks are now in place for SIS to deliver long-term profitable growth’, Tomlinson said. ‘Management217;s confidence in returning to pre-Covid-19 top-line growth rates was clear and this has set the basis for new medium-term targets of £100m of sales…,’ he said. Tomlinson added that margin expansion will be supported by ‘supply chain consolidation and leveraging the well-invested cost base’ and that the shares remain cheap on a current year 2021 embedded value/sales [multiple] of 1 times versus peers on 2 times." Again as per posts today on broker calls, it's all too bullish. Also don't like it when we have to talk about valuations in operating metrics based on sales rather profits and cashflow so perhaps pushing the boat out here more than usual. The thing is though, that is the kind of market we are in! The valuations aren't giving any guide to future performance and what appears to be expensive has continued to go higher and become more expensive. Folk will have noted alot of my terrible selling based on what I have thought was a fairer value after realising good gains in alot of highlighted shares, except the near majority of those have carried on going higher so it really has been one of those markets that continues to surprise. Furthermore, the US appears even more bullish than the analyst above. If SIS was offered to US investors, they'd look at that operating metric of 1 and double it and more in a flash so you'd probably end up smashing through the 80p target in one fair swoop. The path of least resistance continues to be up regardless of views on valuation. Looks like we've got stuck here atm but more bullish updates and the re-rates in the likes of SIS will continue. If something changes for the worse at some point in the future, then clearly have to give back some of the gains. All imo DYOR

After the RNO holding RNS on the back of the recent exchanges, bizarrely half an hour after that RNS, Tellworth (part of a group) trimming here too. Essentially what has happened here is the price has had to be bid up from the low 40's by a big buyer to eventually bid 46.5p to find a seller to meet part of their large buy order. That went through yesterday and there were all kinds of big buys so clearly there is notable demand here. Naturally there are sellers on the other side of these exchanges and they have been preventing the breakout with the offer being held at 48p. However, today the market makers are edging up so that big buyer is still bidding strong and there is only one market maker on the offer at 48p now who is only offering 5k. Anything more and it will cost 50p so a possible breakout to come here. The chart is being a mega tease by sitting right at the highs threatening that break higher. Loads of people have sold to the large buyers recently (as per posts above) and taken profits along the way and that's the whole idea - good on you, bank some and de-risk along the way. The demand here has been strong so I have added and hoping for that breakout now. All imo DYOR

That's a big chunk gone through there: 2.69m @46.5p. Siginificant exchange for SIS. Will that be the driver of the breakout? All imo DYOR

No stock available to buy with market quote @ 44-47 With buying above the Offer again this morning and just looking back at the trades from 21st Jan including 90k @ 49.9, one would think there's a good chance of 50p being cracked on this leg up?

Does look like we have cleared the sellers here. Nothing wrong with selling and taking profits along the way of course - good to see! Interesting trade of 48p paid for just 19000 shares. Trade is at a substantial premium to the offer price of 45p. That looks like it has cleared out the bulk of the shares available at 45p. This could be setting up for a move higher. All imo DYOR

A little stream of buying coming in here. 16:31 EDIT: Nothing happened, thought it might have been a tip with the stream of buys. Alot of selling here recently, perhaps with this little move up sellers have been cleared. 147.5k mopped up at 42p today too. Possible re-test of the high soon? All imo DYOR

Highlighted these at 33p but just want to be clear on the position here and on anything I post on. I have mainly been looking for and highlighting laggard plays and situations like SIS where it looks like the market rating has been too bearish in light of a perceived change of fundamentals. Alot of these have worked and it helps when you have a bullish market, but people are clearly free to do what works for them and sell whenever they want. This market is giving ample time to consider the positions and risk and de-risk accordingly. It won't be like that in the future when tougher times come. I doubt many read my posts (not an important person and small fish) but the few who do will know the buy points have been alot better than the sell points too so always do what works for you. Always encourage folk to find what works for them, even if it is only one thing - rinse and repeat. The longer term holders have been the winners in these markets but that doesn't mean shares like SIS and others are guaranteed to multi-bag or keep going higher. If the bullish outlooks keep coming, then yes they can, but risk is always clearly prevalent and things can change. Alot of shorter term targets have been hit and exceeded so any target posted is just an opinion mainly based on the short term. Just a two penny opinion. All imo Always DYOR Find what works for you. Trade your own way.

Added some more. Looking for a short term move to sell near that 50p mark. There are just too many bullish moves out there so expecting SIS to follow suit. Relentless out there. All imo DYOR

Great podcast thanks for posting Donald. I remain a little sceptical on SIS but am back in after latest update. Let's see if they are serious about profitability finally

Actually, here's something to get your teeth into. The first way that most manufacturers start to generate profit from increasing revenue is from reduced manufacturing unit cost. After that its more down to fixed overheads becoming a smaller proportion of revenue and reduced sales/marketing cost as products benefit from repeat sales. * cost of sales (manufacturing costs) is usually simple stuff based on material used and direct labour, possibly including apportioned capital cost, to make the products - that should increase gross margin Here's the last few years cost of sales % 39, 40, 43, 56, 55 (the last reported half) So instead of falling, its rising. Possibly sales/marketing costs have been included in cost of sales, but that's not usual.

My view would be very different if there was anything unique about the products. The key will be whether they can make any final profit and maintain it. While revenue expansion is underway, there is always a story to tell and many people will buy into it, simply on the basis of growing revenue. Given a load of money, that is not the most difficult thing to do.

hi lammylover of course your points are all reasonably correct, are you a holder? my strategy is to look forward, and assess the risk reward on that basis. as a starting point they have grown a business to 50m of sales. that business is in a growth area, and has remained steady during the pandemic - so it has something going for it. they talk of 100m sales - in which case that would be an acheivement from scratch for a business yes in the past they have raised funds but say no more will be needed, that makes sense given the business is now getting some scale, but appreciate the proof is also in the pudding. in 2014 sales were 6.5m and 25m shares in issue i.e. there was c.25p revenue per share - the business was loss-making in 2020 sales were 50m on 125m shares i.e. there was c.40p revenue per share - the business is at small profit in the past people paid £1 a share for 25p of los making revenue today one can pay 40p for 40p of profitable revenue at a very simple level the business much better value now. will it succeed - i dont know. but if it does succeed the price could be much higher i am looking at long term risk/reward in particular the chart gives very good turnaround indications. time will tell All IMHO, DYOR + BoL SIS is in my portfolio

fantastic presentation yesterday by CEO on investormeet. he talked very confidently of a 100m sales target, and at 100m having double digit margins - so thats 10m said that investment in US is small but starting to gain traction. he said they have more than enough CASH. the placing in april 20 but to be cautious and then trading has been much better since. net CASH. i was particularly impressed wiht how he answered all the Q&A - directly and openly. he talks very frankly about challenges and opportunities in the market. as ex global GSK i think mgt team has pedigree. All IMHO, DYOR + BoL SIS is in my portfolio

I've been looking in occasionally as familiar with the market, but not attracted by the obvious problem that its very difficult to get repeat volume without significant ongoing marketing that doesn't reduce with time. The only thing that reduces is manufacturing unit cost as volume rises. Buying PhD was an interesting step forward I think. I'd like to see them buy up more major brands. Lets face it, none of these brands have any unique benefits, other than the blurb they market with. So if SiS took out a load of credible competitors, their manufacturing and marketing cost per sale should drop, even if they keep the brands going. That would be like the bike market, where several bike brands are actually owned by the same company. Several brand websites selling doesn't cost much - they'd all go to the same source, just like Wiggle and Chain Reaction Cycles. Wiggle buying CRC created something of a monopoly - went unnoticed by the authorities.
