rimau1: Agreed Linton, i am hoping that the slowing Q4 growth is already priced in given the share price performance over the past 4 weeks. I was also pleased that they flag no impact from FCA investigations into car finance which was a concern for me reading the weekend press so all good here. Top up opportunity on any further falls and if there is a brexit solution this should bounce with the rest of the banking sector. What are we priced at now, i make it eps 176p and 86p dividend so 7 times earnings and a 7% yield. Bargain.
linton5: Yes you forgot to say the share price is as manipulative as it comes shocking by the mms
masurenguy: Did You Manage To Avoid Secure Trust Bank's 42% Share Price Drop? Simply Wall St, 29 August 2019 We wouldn't blame long term Secure Trust Bank Plc (LON:STB) shareholders for doubting their decision to hold, with the stock down 42% over a half decade. The falls have accelerated recently, with the share price down 13% in the last three months. This could be related to the recent financial results. During the unfortunate half decade during which the share price slipped, Secure Trust Bank actually saw its earnings per share (EPS) improve by 10.0% per year. So it doesn't seem like EPS is a great guide to understanding how the market is valuing the stock. The steady dividend doesn't really explain why the share price is down. While it's not completely obvious why the share price is down, a closer look at the company's history might help explain it. As well as measuring the share price return, investors should also consider the total shareholder return (TSR). The TSR incorporates the value of any spin-offs or discounted capital raisings, along with any dividends, based on the assumption that the dividends are reinvested. It's fair to say that the TSR gives a more complete picture for stocks that pay a dividend. As it happens, Secure Trust Bank's TSR for the last 5 years was -24%, which exceeds the share price return mentioned earlier. And there's no prize for guessing that the dividend payments largely explain the divergence! Secure Trust Bank shareholders are down 19% for the year (even including dividends). Unfortunately, that's worse than the broader market decline of 1.9%. However, it could simply be that the share price has been impacted by broader market jitters. It might be worth keeping an eye on the fundamentals, in case there's a good opportunity. Unfortunately, last year's performance may indicate unresolved challenges, given that it was worse than the annualised loss of 5.3% over the last half decade. Generally speaking long term share price weakness can be a bad sign, though contrarian investors might want to research the stock in hope of a turnaround. My perspective: H1 profit was up by 20% to £18.1m and the current shareprice is circa 7.5 x the current year profit forecast and 6 x the projected profit in 2020. Current yield is circa 6.7%. The latest Peel Hunt note on 29 August recommended a reduction in holding with a target price of 1295p. This level has now been breached and we may now be close to the bottom with a potential value proposition re-emerging. I have no existing position here but it is on my watchlist.
wobaguk: The EMS on this is extremely low, quoted as 150 on my brokers, fewer than 10 positions are open at IG (and Im one of them). I'm guessing that the stagnant share price is partly down to insufficient numbers of shares for institutional investors to bother with, which is what it takes to kick start a share price these days. Possibly combined with a high percentage of share ownership with early investors sitting on shares. In comparison, Shawbrook and OneSavings, two other major challenger banks have in the order of 10 times the shares in circulation, and a tenth of the share price. (over all they are 2 to 3 times the size in market cap) Cant help feeling a share split might help light the blue touch paper STB needs for this to finally take off. 5 to 1 should do it, that and a decent tip in the press.
papy02: Dave. Interesting post, thanks. I have arbed by going long ARBB and short twice the amount of STB (via a Spreadex Mar 14 spreadbet). So the overall position should be market-neutral to any STB price change, it's just a bet on the pricing anomaly closing. Looking at a chart of the two, STB is looking a bit stretched atm, but the 2x pricing anomaly broadly seems to have been there since the STB IPO: {Edit, I removed the link to ADVFN chart of the two, as it was too long and mucked up the formatting of the entire thread. Just look at 2yr plot of ARBB and add STB as an overlay} Any ideas anyone what is behind the pricing anomaly and what could cause it to close (or widen!) ? I need to double check the dividend position but suspect it is working against me (so will cost me to keep the position open). Many thanks for the idea.
