I think someone is hitting all the SCSW stocks. I have a lot of them and they all seem to have nosedived over the last few days. UPGS seems to have been the catalyst after it failed to meet expectations last week

To get a real sense of where this business is going one needs to look at the cash flow. While pre-tax profit for the 6 months only came in at £9.3m and operating profit £11m, operating cash flow was a whopping £23m. Evidently all of this cash and more was consumed in asset purchases (largely meters) of £49m. Put simply, if they stopped installations today this business would already be throwing off heaps of free cash which could rapidly pay down debt. For the year ending Dec 2017 operating cash flow is forecast to be approx. £36m, growing to £80m by 2020. Although free cash flow will be non-existent as they continue to invest in the smart meter portfolio.

Regarding the 'marginally below' sentence, this was the prior sentence: "The continued investment in our infrastructure and delivery capability outlined above, combined with the slower than anticipated mobilisation due to the constraints seen in the smart meter supply chain at the start of the year is expected to impact PBT growth in the current year." Current year might be flat but business looks like accelerating in 2018 if you want to buy into the future... All IMHO.

I thought generally positive half year results overall: "The acquisitions of our installation and software businesses in 2016 are now fully integrated and managing a month on month increasing run rate of meter installations for our energy supply customers." "The first half of 2017 has seen us continue the significant progress across the business further investing in our delivery capacity and, with the business reporting another period of strong trading activity and maintaining a continued pattern of growth across the asset portfolio. We remain confident in our ability to continue to grow the business for the remainder of 2017."

Profit warning ... free cash flow as usual looks dire

The recurring revenues are now increasing by over £1M a month...that is the key metric.

Interesting company but not sure about this line... we currently expect underlying PBT for the full year to remain in line with, or marginally below, the level reported for the 12 months to 31 December 2016.

No doubt another stellar set of results tomorrow. The key figures I look at are the recurring revenues.

May be of interest to holders: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/money/comment/article-4855966/VICTORIA-BISCHOFF-Fix-housing-crisis.html Plans to put smart meters in every home in Britain by 2020 are in real danger of becoming a complete flop. These fancy new meters allow energy firms to monitor how much power you are using minute by minute, doing away with the need to submit monthly readings. But, according to the big energy firms, fewer than half of households want a smart meter and, with some providers, the take-up rate is just one in five.

Been an impressive ride of late. Bought into SMS in Feb at 580p and got a bit uncomfortable as we headed down to 480p only for this to shoot up over £7 within the space of a couple of months. Happy to see escape at 708p today. Time will tell if I've done the same mistake as Fevertree (sold up at 1050p after making a quick 10%, what a nightmare!)
