Gosh, what happened here? I'm glad they were only on my watchlist. 50p might seriously tempt me if they can vouchsafe the dividend.

Thorpematt, SRD is not one I'd ever heard of before! It has some good Stocko scores, though as yet passes no particular screen. It looks to be the KETL of radiators (!), so I hope they're managing their debt (c. £80m) more successfully, while paying a stonking dividend.
Otherwise some good figures there, such as-

PE Ratio (f)
PEG Ratio (f)
EPS Growth (f)
Dividend Yield (f) 7.98

And these:

Return on Capital
Return on Equity
Operating Margin

So in conclusion, they're now on my watchlist. Thanks.
With apologies to others for the O/T.

I have been buying here in the low points and I hold SOM too.

I reckon there are a couple of key subtle differences:

Firstly SOM is a "picks and shovels play" and SFR is more materials and finished product.

Second, margin.
SOM has c. 30% op. margin whilst SFR is much lower. There are similarites in the Quality metrics but again SOM has ROE and ROCE which shouts "effing great moat" all over it. SFR just looks very good.

Now, because SOM's picks and shovels are very expensive (for picks and shovels anyway), they may well be MORE cyclical than the essential products that SFR produce.

I also get Graham (and Paul's) assertion that low margin cyclicals should trade of low PERs (although the divi/ PER calc is bonkers IMO), but I reckon that mostly the products SFR offers are often tied to multi-year building projects. In addition: housing crisis, energy transitition and any form of infastructure (HS2 or released funds from HS2) will need supplying.

Finally, SOM of course is mostly N.America as opposed to SFR UK.

I am in these both becasue they are IMO quality at a discount and I believe they will do well, mid term.

Anybody willing to compare the merits of SFR and SOM for a value-income recovery? I note Graham's response on Stocko, which counts as two cheers:

"It could be argued that the risks are already priced in at a PER of 7x and I have sympathy for that view. I think I would have to accept that this share was offering deep value if:

PER was 5x or less, or:

Dividend yield was higher than the PER (ideally >10%) and was covered by earnings, or:

The company was materially reducing its share count with a buyback. So I am open to changing my stance on this, depending on the evolution of the company’s profitability, share price and shareholder rewards.

But SOM seems to be more highly rated on Stocko's algos while offering more generous dividends. I'm not sure what the latter is likely to be now, and one obviously can't trust the Stocko figure of 16.5%! Did Max has it at around 10%, but I imagine it will vary according to earnings.

Nevertheless, they are both dependent on construction (one on structural steel, the other on high spec concrete laying, I think it's probably fair to compare them? My first sense is that SOM is the more interesting share at the right price.

Thanks for that Dave, another independent goes to the wall, the diversification undertaken by SFR over the last few years looks very wise, solid in a bad market.

Well run company, diversified both globally and by industry, pays dividend, 60p looks like a solid support level, if it ever falls back there again I’ll be tempted with adding more, good luck all.

Strangely honest update revealing a level of disappointment even when sticking to ‘results expected to be in line’! Have held here for quite a while, a good dividend company which has done a lot to diversify. India now looks to be gaining traction and although prestigious office projects look less attractive, their Nuclear, Transport and Industrial opportunities make them quite resilient, happy to keep holding.

Swiss central bank ups interest rates, strikes hawkish tone

The Swiss National Bank increased the cost of borrowing for the fifth time on Thursday, as it looked to get inflation under control.

The central bank raised its policy rate by 0.25 percentage points, to 1.75%. That was the smallest increase in the current rate-setting cycle, following two 50 basis point rises in March and December, and two 75 basis point rises in June and September last year.

However, it made it clear that further rises remained possible, noting: “It cannot be ruled out that additional rises in the policy rate will be necessary to ensure price stability over the medium that further rises could not be ruled out.”

The SNB said that while inflation had declined “significantly” in recently months, it remained above target. Swiss inflation was 2.2% in May, down from the 3.4% it reached in February.

The Zurich-based bank lowered its inflation forecast for the remainder of 2023, on the back of lower oil and gas prices and the stronger Swiss franc. But it upped forecasts for 2024 and the first half of 2025 due to “ongoing second-round effects, higher electricity prices and rents, and more persistent inflationary pressure from abroad”. It now expects inflation to average 2.2% in 2025 and 2.1% in 2025.

Its 2023 GDP growth forecast was unchanged at “around” 1%.

Melanie Debono, senior Europe economist at Pantheon Macroeconomics, said: “The case for a rate hike at this meeting, based on the inflation data, was clear: inflation has remained above the bank’s ‘below 2%’ since its last meeting.

“We think at least one more rate hike is coming. The bank continues to strike a hawkish tone, and left its inflation estimate for the end of its forecast horizon – now the first quarter of 2026 – above target.”

ING said: “Despite this encouraging decline [in inflation], the SNB continues to see inflation as a problem and expects it to strengthen over the coming winter.
Posted at 10/10/2022 20:49 by tole this falling dividend-paying penny stock a must buy?This Fool takes a closer look at a penny stock with an enticing dividend yield, and believes it has defensive capabilities.Jabran Khan?Published 10 October, 4:35 pm BSTSFRShot of a young Black woman doing some paperwork in a modern officeImage source: Getty ImagesOne penny stock that has caught my eye recently is Severfield (LSE:SFR). It has some attractive fundamentals as well as some defensive capabilities, in my opinion. Should I buy the shares for long-term growth and returns? Let's take a closer look.Construction steelAs an introduction, Severfield is a steel designer, manufacturer, and installer for large-scale construction projects. Steelworks are essential in a lot of construction as they form the initial structure of any property being built. Severfield is one of the largest firms in its market and has an extensive presence throughout Europe too.So what's happening with Severfield shares currently? Well, as I write, they're trading for 50p, putting them in penny stock territory. At this time last year, the stock was trading for 65p. This equates to a 23% decline over a 12-month period.A penny stock with risks to considerI believe the Severfield share price has come under pressure due to macroeconomic headwinds. These include soaring inflation, the rising cost of materials, as well as a global supply chain crisis. All of these challenges could hinder its progress moving forward too. Rising costs eat into profit margins, which can affect investor sentiment and returns. The supply chain issues are impacting many firms and affecting product availability and performance.With the worldwide economy in a state of volatility, construction projects may be halted, or slowed down at least. This could have a detrimental impact on demand, which would in turn, affect Severfield's performance and level of return.The bull case and my verdictTo start with, I believe Severfield has some defensive traits. This is because of the essential nature of its core offering, steel works, and the role steel plays in virtually every construction project. No matter the project, some form of steel is required to help build the initial structure. Steel is as important as bricks and mortar. This should help boost performance and growth for a long time to come.Next, I can see Severfield shares would boost my passive income stream through dividend payments. At present, the dividend yield on offer is 6%. This is higher than the FTSE 100 and FTSE 250 averages of 3%-4% and 1.9% respectively. I am aware that dividends are never guaranteed, however. Furthermore, the shares look decent value for money right now on a price-to-earnings ratio of just 11.Finally, Severfield has a good track record of performance. I do understand that past performance is not a guarantee of the future. However, looking back, I can see it has grown revenue and profit for the past four years consecutively.Overall I like the look of Severfield shares. I will be adding them to my buy list for the next time I have some funds to invest. The fundamentals, such as performance track record, passive income opportunity, as well as the shares' value for money look good. Furthermore, I like Severfield's brand power and global presence. In fact, its exposure to the Indian market, which is experiencing an infrastructure and construction boom, should boost performance and growth in the coming years too.
