damanko: Good previous posts both of you. My civil engineering friend (who has worked on the Wimbledon Number One court steel project for the last few years)tells me that Severs is flying, the construction company he works for is using them rather than Hares, as they feel Severs is more professional, more organised. The acquisition announced yesterday seems to me spot on, a niche market that Severs can achieve very decent margins on, compared to ordinary construction work. This is a very lightly used forum, I wonder sometimes just how many private investors are even aware of Severfield. I'm a 10+ year investor, buying price 34p (largely because of the rights issue many years ago and reinvestment of dividends), so I suppose I'm reasonably happy, but I have to say that for the past few years the share price has dithered between somewhere and nowhere. I.E. a few pence either way. My instinct as an investor is that Severs will eventually either be taken over, or more likely merge with another steel stockholder, creating a much larger company, with UK, European & Indian interests.
cc2014: Yeah it's moving up imho. L2 looks strong and looks to me like buyers continue to try and buy stock as cheap as possible but aren't really succeeding. We can see that the bid has moved up to 71 and held there for the last hour but no sellers are interested at 71, just as they weren't particuarly interested at 69 or 70. If all you are interested in is trade flow, then for the stock to be moving up on a day when FTSE is down over 100 and the constrution PMI is the worst for 10 years, the trade flow is telling me something. Probably that the analysts have now had 24 hours to take a good luck at Harry Peers and like the deal I have been looking at Harry Peers this morning. I quite like this acquisition. "Severfield said ​Harry Peers​ ​commands a niche, well-established and trusted position with blue chip customers​R03; in t​he nuclear sector, including both the defence and​ ​commercial sectors​. Severfield's chief executive ​Alan Dunsmore​ said:​ ​“Harry Peers’​ ​experience in specialist, highly regulated, non-cyclical markets will enhance our future growth plans through expanding the ​g​roup’s capabilities and sector reach." So, I like the on-going nature of their business which isn't going to be affected by Brexit and appears to very profitable. Harry Peers accounts for 2019 show a margin of 15.7% which is impressive and I assume in due course SFR can strip out part of the directors salaries and admin costs and there will be synergies in purchasing if nothing else which will improve this further. So, as far as I can tell, SFR take their pile of cash which stood at £25m at year end, spend some of it and end up with £3.4m of extra profit in year 1, moving to say £4.0m in year 2. All earnings enhancing, not financed from debt and a business with fantastic margins. A move in the share price back to 90p seems not unreasonable to me in the short term
cc2014: Further to post #4369, the bid is easily holding at 67 and it looks to me like the buyers continue to try and get whatever volume they can at this price. My guess is it will stay here for another few days depending on the polical picuture before the buyers will be again foreced to move up the share price to get some volume. Fingers crossed.
cc2014: Well the buyers spent all morning and some of the afternoon waiting for the sellers to come to them which didn't happen. Eventually they moved the price up and we still didn't see any sell volume of any size appear. It would be good to see the share price beginning with a 7 again soon
cc2014: I attended the recent AGM and was happy with what I learnt. To summarise: UK volume and margins are currently stable but political uncertainty means directors can't predict the future any more than we can. Brexit with a deal will release held back orders but Brexit without a deal will likely lead to margin pressure. Europe is going to plan. India looks very optimistic. Transition from concrete to steel continues and SFR will see significant growth. I continue to struggle with the low share price. India by 2022 is predicted to have the largest population in the world and SFR's market share is currently tiny. Seperately I note anyone wanting to buy is now having to pay around 65 and the bid is creeping up very slowly as if the algo's are looking for volume and trying to buy as cheap as possible. I assume the AGM update was enough to stop whoever was selling or maybe they just wanted out before the update for whatever reasong.
cc2014: Well one of three things happen: 1. The stock is like a coiled spring and the share price will move up fast to say 80p because all the people who really wanted to sell at 75 or 76 or whatever but hadn't got the patience to wait have sold in the last month. (Like Billington did once it started moving, it sat there forever and moved up very strongly) or 2. It trudges on up at a snails pace but moves up nonetheless possibly on low volumes or 3. We find there's a another large seller at 76. My guess is it's somewhere between 1 and 2 as naturally if you are buyer you don't want to pay too much. (Note - we can see nearly every trade today is a buy and at a higher price than yesterday. It has not been possible to sell at 73.6 for about 3 hours but no-one is interested. I think eventually the buyer at 73.6 will move to 74.0 if no-one comes along by the end of the day
cc2014: If you want some hope jaditicl3 there has been a massive seller sitting on the order book at 74p for the last week. This morning they are gone. That's not to say they aren't on holiday or are trying a different tactic but I can hope. At the end of the day the share is worth what people perceive it to be worth and share price can remain irrational for some time. But, as long as the company keeps delivering increased profits the market will take notice eventually. For my part I am comfortable with the accounts. I was going to do a further write up on the detail but this would take me an hour to write up for no real benefit to myself and it is no longer on my priority list. The UK economy might be described as lacklustre but India is going great. The share chart on Billington (BILN) and the noises coming out of their AGM yesterday suggest all should be looking good for Severfield. I'm happy enough to hold and would probably start top slicing at 100p. I've met the CEO a few months ago and there's lots to be excited about. He's one of those cautious but quietly confident types. I liked him alot.
cc2014: The share price does seem to be ticking up now, so either the trading update has leaked (doesn't seem likely as the volume is low) or the seller that's been going for months has finished or the BILN results were enough to given the share price a little push.
steelwatch100: BILN shares up 12% on results. SFR share price seem a bit stagnent at moment, no chatter going on, any reason.
steelwatch100: Just been looking at where SFR have generated their profits and makes interesting reading. . Mar 2017 . .........................................T/O.. Pbt...... % Severfield (Northern Ireland). 77m 11m. 14% Severfield (design & build). 64m. 5m. 8% Severfield. (Uk) dalton. 152m. 8m. 5% Indian jv. Approx 30m. 0.3m. 1% Decking Approx 4m. 0.5m. 12.5% Obviously there is some inter-company trading / duplication but this shows that if the main power house severfield (uk) gets going and performs as well as the other 2 uk arms then profits should progress nicely (there is a lag in the large projects results). Another option would be for them to maximise the ni & d/b rich seams of work and for dalton to work hand in glove with them. BILN are to release their half year results tomorrow & trading statement update, which hopefully will give a read across to SFR. Especially SFR's d&b + ni sectors as these are close to the BILN type of work. So could be good news for SFR share price tomorrow if positive news.
