hedley2: Severely punished for the interim results with a lot of investors/punters abandoning ship. As always the drop in the share price seems over done and will be a lesson for the board. New man has always said it's a 3yr plan so happy to give him a chance, but have to admit the £2 a share drop hurts!
thomasthetank1: Read Panmure Gordon & Co's note on SDL PLC (SDL), out this morning, by visiting hxxps:// "A trade press release on SDL Machine Translation tells us that the demand for translation output continues to increases and that SDL translation business is not just a human Time & Materials business, but is ‘programmable’ using Machine Translation. Indeed, SDL has been developing MT technology for over 20 years, with the latest update, XMT, released in 2015. Being born in software gives greater scale, operational leverage and reminds that SDL has an effective foil to price deflation. While SDL’s share price has been..."
she-ra: Its bizarre that SDL has such a low share price when one considers that in language translation software it holds an 80% market share and is now helping to expand that market with the first cloud service for translation software and a translators marketplace. That alone would justify this share price but it is also a leader in the field of web content management. The interdependence between language translation and web content management has never been stronger in this ever globalizing world. The £1.5 million purchase of shares by the CEO's partner in December was very encouraging and a massive vote of confidence. I could really see Adobe or Microsoft making a move for this company
hedley2: Share price has now halved in 12 months and shows no sign of support, I know the Finance man is on his way, which never goes down well, any other known reasons?
rivaldo: Peel Hunt now say Sell and forecast just 14.28p EPS this year. I don't know how the share price is holding at these levels - it's either a support operation or the usual bid speculation. Without either of these it's difficult to see the current price being sustained for long imho since there's so much downside on a P/E of over 20 for a company which is in the throes of so much turmoil.
silverfern: I agree- prospective p/e on basis of report today way too high at current share price. SAles will take time to become revenue. I understand they have some debt too- paying that off will compete with their dividend policy at these reduced profit levels
rivaldo: Another profit warning today, though reasonably mild. It'll be interesting to see whether forecasts drop again from the current 28p-29p EPS for this year. The share price could drop to 300p at this rate with no expectation/proof of an upturn until H2 at the earliest per today's RNS.
hedley2: Anyone got any thoughts on the weakness of the share price of late? I know the results did not impress, but they seem to be punished on a regular basis.
rivaldo: Hi flyfisher. Apologies, I've deleted the note already I'm afraid. However, it was only a one-pager, so the conclusion above is a good proportion of it anyway! The reduction in forecasts to 29.3p is quite drastic. It's possible the share price may fall a fair bit further given that the forward P/E remains over 14, so I'll wait on the sidelines for a while yet methinks unless something changes.
rivaldo: Results out - I'm rather glad I sold! Adjusted EPS was down 11% to 33.9p, and the outlook for this year is grim due to increased investment, economic conditions etc. It'll be interesting to see what the revised forecasts are. Long-term I'm sure SDL will thrive, and the new investment will help that process. Short-term is a different matter. In the meantime the share price has fallen to 439p, well below even my mooted 450p, and may fall further given the outlook. I doubt the share price will be going anywhere fast for a while unless an opportunistic bidder comes along. Good luck to holders anyway. There will be money to be made when the turnaround - eventually - comes as SDL is a quality company imho.
