steelwatch100: Mixed bag yesterday's interims. Like all quoted companies SFR are great at spinning things up when they are faced with a tough market position. My take, for what it's worth, is that the outlook for steelwork in the UK is pretty gloomy. Margins are being squeezed and overall volumes reducing. SFR did not dwell on the rapidly falling orders being received from EU &I, 150 m worth of forward orders this time last year, 120m in June, down to 90m now. Seems likely that this will reduce further in the months to come. PBT Margins have also reduced from 8.5% this time last year down to 3.5% now. India continues to be a difficult side show, over 10+ years in. There are however some positives to be taken, Harry Peers has been a timely purchase giving them an opening into the nuclear market. Dipping into the bridge market with HS2 happening may also turn out to be a good move, as long as they don't just get the projects that the specialist bridge people don't want (aka Cleveland bridge and others). Plus cash is good even allowing for the 3 m VAT deferral. Overall a steady hold IMO.
jaf111: Thanks Guys.....some interesting comments. Fortunately sold out of SFR some time ago but it remains on my watchlist (BILN too)....the more it slides the more temped but will await trading update I think!
cc2014: #4420 SFR are famous for building the leading edge designs in steel. Wimbledon roofs, the tallest tower in London, the cheesegrater, football stadia, the list is endless. The challenge right now is none of this stuff will be built for some time except for that already started. Wimbledon won't need any world class sliding roofs as no tennis, no new stadia required as no crowds, who is going to build new office space when there's going to be plenty with people working from home. Add to that no new shopping centres, no new pubs, no new restaurants, no new hotels. Every company RNS I read says they are cutting capex to the minimum so I see constrution order books collapsing as the year progresses. On top of that the base rate at 0.1% won't help their defined contribution pension deficit. Sure we might build a few new data centres as we stream movies endlessly but for SFR these are a steel frame shed which most decent steel companies can build. I can't see any decent margin in those. If we look at the share prices on Galliford and Kier, SFR is holding up quite well. Billington have all the same issues but as a smaller player they can be more nimble and try to gain a larger slice of a smaller pie. I suspect they are also used to running a tighter ship and lower margins. For SFR who arguably already got the largest slice of the pie, trying to get a much bigger slice (except in India and Europe) is a tough challenge. If it's Hambro selling they've been selling down for years on and off. I don't have my reserach in front of me here but last time I looked which was back in Feb when I sold out they had zillions of shares to sell.
rhomboid: I would suggest it’s possibly an institutional investor wanting to rotate out of the stock irrespective of the merits or otherwise of SFR ...possibly a change of portfolio manager? ..a 250k AT on the bell might be the end of the position ? M&G & Hambro have been reducing FWIW I’ve no position here any more as I hold Billington in preference ...
jaf111: Really struggling to understand recent weakness of SFR....esp when compared with Billington. AGM 3 September so should be a trading update then but unless there is some unknown nasty the recent slide in share price Seems unwarranted Appreciate people’s thoughts.......
cc2014: Agreed. SFR was going great until Covid-19 but I'm surprised the share price has fallen back further looking at the order book. Same as the rest of the sector... which I think is in trouble for the near future.
damanko: CC, you're not talking solely to yourself. I've been an investor in SFR for many years. Thanks to taking up the rights issue at 23p seven years ago, and dividend reinvestment since buying, I've recently sold at 84p, representing a profit of 148%. I always buy for the longer term, ignore blips, but 12 years in SFR is enough. Reluctantly, in a way, but the company's share price has proved itself perfect in hitting a ceiling, staying a short while, then sliding down once again. And then the cycle starts again... Go well with your holding, it's a decent outfit, and really should be some way north of a pound. However my patience has run out. d.
cc2014: The chart in post 4385 shows the share price has previously hit resistance at 88p and failed. However, each time it goes back there it's propensity to fail to breach resistance falls as the number of sellers at 88p gets lower and lower. I would suggest it's ability to get through 88p depends on what mood Hambro and M&G are in who have both been sellers recently. My guess looking at the dates and prices Hambro have sold is that they are more interested in selling a few over time. (it's taken them over 2 years to sell 16 million shares and there's no particular pattern based on price). I'm not even sure M&G are really a seller and the sale in January was more to do with portfolio management after the situation with Prudential. What we can see is there is no desperate rush to sell at 87p. It's not like it's spiked up to 88p for 5 minutes and then been driven back quickly. It's happily resting there with decent volume on L2. So, we will see. My sense is the buyers are keener to buy than the sellers are to sell but often the real volume does not play out until the last hour.
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.
