I don't know what else the company has got to do to get a decent break in this market recent pre tax profits have gone:- 2017 10.6million 2018 74.1 million 2019 80 million 2020 153 million. Next profits should be decent too

Prob 100p level I think could see a gradual slide back to that level from here imo

I guess the game now is trying to read where the bottom is and therefore when to buy

The added facet here is China/Taiwan.

Foward consensus PE ratio of 6, 3 year average of 20. Dividend payout ratio of 16.7%. ROE 16.9%, ROCE 10.2%, CROCI 15.1%. Acquisition of leading US defence business and another in Australia. Share buy backs. Defensive. What isn't to like?

Not having a big dividend is fine as long as the profits are used by the company in some way to expand the business to produce greater profits. I can't see much evidence of that here. Because of this I would need a bigger dividend to invest in this share

Reasonably clear from today's announcements that test and trace is here to stay for some more months -SRP should benefit for a bit longer yet.

I'm not interested in the dividend.

0.8p dividend is not exceptional

Essential Book to Bill ratio of 190% should give you confidence about sustainability for the near term. This one is just being overlooked because of perceived value elsewhere and negative press.

Recent results were exceptional, market questioning the sustainability given significant earnings from COVID related contracts.

Agree, frugal dividend is holding this back imo.

Salpara111 I wasn't implying a takeover of Serco - it was reference to the buy backs.

Well if it isn't the divi, I struggle to understand the pretty negative reaction to what is objectively a very solid set of figures. I do agree that at the current valuation and strength of the business there is a small possibility that someone might have a shot at a takeover.

I don't agree with you there Salpara111. It the current climate I think it shows courage and prudence not to get caught in an over-excessive progresive dividend trap. Also there will be plenty of assets perhaps going on the cheap including Serco itself so best use/save the capital for buybacks and elsewhere.

Support services are really out of favour at the moment, look at how Capita is doing. I really think that Serco have shot themselves in the foot with the pathetic divi, it displays a lack of confidence going forward.

As expected solid results, the only thing I find disappointing is the skinny dividend when compared to underlying earnings.

Rimau. SRP results are a standout though. Looks like the price is finally stirring

Sorry, i meant “in general” support services is a dog of a sector.

Rimau, that is not true. The average pe over the years for SRP has been 21 (see advfn financial's page). And it has been as high as 34. So For a company that is currently growing, it is more than reasonably priced on a pe of 14.

The issue is that Serco is in support services. Highly unlikely to achieve a rating of 15-20x in this dog sector. Anyone can to name a peer that has or had a similar rating?
