Bought my first tranche of shares in this one yesterday on the dip- good to see the price recovering this morning. I think the company did the right thing to raise some equity now alongside their new debt facility- they now have real fire power to add to their grid-scale batteries (and this is where I think the value will be found- not the smart metering). Impressive, dower, new CFO. Having read the broker notes on this see a further £2 on the price over the next months. Downside well protected.
MV of existing shares down by 170m Suggests an over reaction…or the market sees it as unnecessary and not adding value.
900p equity raise of 175m Should make the balance sheet stronger…..they need to bring their projects in on cost and at expected level of fees.
15% equity raise….wonder what the discount will be to new investors. 5-10%?
Just wanted to say that my instal of electric and gas smart meters by SMS at his week was quite a pleasant experience. They contacted me as promised, kept me informed. The engineer was knowledgeable and got on with the job promptly with enough customer interaction. The trustpilot results for SMS are 50% 1* and 30% 5*. Depending on whether the appointment happens and works first time. I was going to leave a review but the trustpilot required an account which I did not want to set up and as non Facebook / Instagram user I could not easily use the site. I suspect the company does better than its trustpilot stats show.
I don't work in that area specifically, but definitely seems to be a lack of accountability and problems with knowing who to speak to to get things done. Plus I know previously meter engineers were paid by the job so would invent ways not do the it, but think that has been stopped now.The whole consumer energymarket needs a shake up tbh as the customer is always on hold for ages and very rarely is any slightly out of the ordinary issue resolved first time. The ombudsman is pretty impotent and want you to speak to the company first with any issue, go through their complaints process and then if after 8 weeks you're not happy then you can open a case with them.I think you're with the best energy company with octopus as that's who I'm with and compared to all the others they're a doddle to deal with. (BTW I have zero connection with them, but have dealt with all the others on a daily basis and they are sooooo much better)

I'm just venting. you said "As a general rule, meter operators are notoriously bad." Why is this? and how do you suggest this problem can be resolved? or does the industry not care enough about the consumer to resolve the issue. If the industry does not care, then maybe the regulators should do more. To be honest, I may take back some of what I said yesterday. I managed to get hold of the correct person in SMS, so I have managed to get them to fit into my timetable so a visit for a refit next week, rather than late August.

What did readers make of the capital day presentation…… Man amg net seemed to be saying we are going to double our cash profits in a few years…and there is a lot more to go for. But the market has not moved, so either no one is listening or it was priced in beforehand. Even after the run back above 850, this is appearing undervalued to me.
What a lovely quiet board. I copied this from a post by Rivaldo - SMS one of a few to get full marks. https://pdfs.investorschronicle.co.uk/IC_AlphaScreenGARP_220321.pdf
Cenkos update/upgrade is a great read. An inflation proofed income with a clear growth strategy, a strong balance sheet and both DCF & DDM (discounted dividend model) above 1300p per share suggesting 70%+ potential upside. I have added to my own holding this week.
Resilient results for the financial year ended 31 December 2020, which Investor's Champion latest commentary covers. As greater reliance is placed on energy from renewable sources and the electric vehicle revolution moves up a gear, SMS looks very well placed to benefit from the rapidly changing UK market.
Featured on Investor's Champion: Management now consider that underlying pre-tax profit for the current year ending December 2020 will be marginally ahead of its expectations (Expectations are for £14.1m), with the forecast year-end net cash position of c.£30m. They remain confident of achieving the current 2021 consensus expectations of c£14.5m. As always, one needs to look at the operating cash flow to gain a better idea of the real potential of SMS with a forecast net operating cash inflow of £32m in 2021 growing to £52.7m by 2022.
Did anybody notice the bid for Calisen this morning
miss womble
Lost 1m already for selling that 20m
Would have been a good buy at 591p. Moving ahead nicely at the moment.
Seems someone didn't see this as an undervalued share. 20 million pound sell at 591p?!?
#NCYT #BMN #MTR #SMS #PAY #PRTC #SLP #APP #CNCT Ten ‘magic formula’ stocks for investors looking for value and quality -
With net cash of £44.5m and an unutilised revolving credit facility stood of £342.3m, SMS looks in great shape. For what it is worth, the house broker believes SMS remains substantially undervalued and has a valuation range of 1,058p to 1,176p, supported by the 16.4x net ILARR meter asset sale.That is 65% above the current price.
