davidosh: deadly.....I think that catching up the lost sales that would have taken place in lockdown is such an unknown figure as surely... 1. Sales will be greater as some stores in the sector will have closed down and given up over the last six months and those buyers will now need SCS and the remaining providers to the market. 2. Many commentators expect the market to have increased significantly because so many are working from home and want to buy replacement furniture and carpets as lockdown has speeded up that process. 3. Online sales are increasing so many will have ordered items during lockdown too.
netcurtains: A market cap of £80m It normally makes about £11m profit So its got a PE ratio of 7 (for normal years) Its got NAV of about £30m Apart from 2020 profits had been growing at about £1m a year (that it is pretty good). Whats not really to like? (If compare with Topps Tiles - topps profits have been declining over the years and its market cap is over DOUBLE SCS). This looks a "RELATIVE" bargain compared to competitors
thorpematt: I think the biggest thing people don't understand with SCS is it's debt levels...or actually its lack of. Most screeners do not pick SCS up as a company with a very strong balance sheet. When new investors look at it, most can't work it out either. I have eplained it all on here before, so I won't repeat it all but quite simply put, future rent payments are not the same as debt in my book. (They're future operating expenses). A capital lease obligation is not a liability if the property it relates to is in a viable trading location. In fact if it is then one could argue that it's an asset. Take £111m off the EV and you will be about where we're at. So, if the BoD expained that to the Mello investors they proably will like the stock....if not, they probably won't.
netcurtains: Not sure if SCS came over well, bad or neutral in the investment show but share just ticked up.

davidosh: This was provided by Paul Scott in the Small Cap Value Report this morning.... My opinion - very positive. It’s a boring, overlooked company that is trading well, with a bulletproof balance sheet, and high future dividend paying capacity. The only thing missing today is any mention of profitability! It sounds like we're probably in line, but mgt is coy about saying anything, as the outlook re covid/re-opening is still so uncertain. That fits very comfortably in the value section of my portfolio. I’m happy to sit tight, and probably might add more to my existing holding on any dips. It’s proven very resilient throughout covid. Don't expect any fireworks with the share price, as sellers always seem to overpower any attempt to rise. But who cares? That's only temporary - eventually strong fundamentals drive things up where they should be, it's just a question of being patient. Plus an advantage of sellers, is that we can buy as many shares as we want. That's not always possible once the sellers have finished. So a depressed share price, combined with strong fundamentals, strikes me as more of an opportunity than anything else. The chart looks lacklustre, but if you add divis on, the total shareholder return has been better than it looks, and there's plenty of upside to come I reckon, if strong performance of the business continues.
davidosh: I have met management and certainly the situation in 2007 was very different to how we stand now. We are about to see the current CEO retiring so as he already has a large holding and his life tied up in SCS then I really do not think he should be buying even more shares. The new CEO may well want to buy some but he has not yet taken up his position and probably wants to see the company in operation before investing significantly. Scion selling is really just a minor adjustment but if they sell further then the broker or company need to get into action and I would want to know what Scion have as their reason to exit. Maybe they somehow think all of UK retail has problems. I am hoping to get the SCS management to my Mello on the 21st December so stay tuned
davidosh: Sphere....thanks for being honest and I certainly agree about some of the rubbish spouted and there are quite a few over promotional directors....certainly not the case here at SCS as I have met the directors. You would certainly enjoy the BASH (Buy, Avoid, Sell or Hold)panel session and you can enjoy SCS being discussed in the September one.....downloadable on our website. The largest shareholder was promoting his fund in that show too.
davidosh: I honestly think we will start seeing upward movement from here. I have invited the company (and particularly to introduce the new CEO) to do a presentation at a MelloMonday after the results in March. The share price should be at least 50% higher by then if trading continues the way it was pre lockdown.
thorpematt: David, We're deliberatly not commenting as we are all trying to buy more before it bounces off that lower trend line. On a serious note I do think that the company's cash / debt position is not understood by the market. Essentialy the EV is inflated due to its long term leases being listed as debt in accordance with the new IFRS16 standard. Once these are taken out of the equation, the balance sheet is extraordinarily strong. I think a protracted focus on home working and decreases in foreign holiday / travel, give tail winds to SCS for a protracted timeframe. I think that even without those, this is a remarkably cash generative business, with its (true) EV much lower than its MC, its true EV/PBT ratio is incredibly low. The SII have dropped significanlty of late. To put things into perspective, the current cash pile is enough to buy ALL of the 38m shares in issue and still have £40 left over! Interestingly (as highlighted very well in this TS), people in this sector like to try before they buy (otherwise why would orders fluctuate s absolutely in line with lockdowns). If the market believes that SCS's long term out of town leases are indeed "liabilities" in the literal sense, then I believe that it really doesn't understand the premise under which this type of business operates at all. For me, this is another example of a quality business whose share price has NOT reacted in line with any sensile analysis of mid to long term prospects. I think the market is too wrapped up in buying some very questionable "vaccine-recovery" stuff. In the meantime some serious once on a lifetime opportunities are being misssed. So hopefully you all grabbed a black friday bargain today?
