celeritas: Nothing to see here, move along. The biggest holders here have not sold a single share, even the CEO bought an extra 2.5m in Feb this year. Building what Steppe have would cost way over £200m, never mind the 330 hoppers. It goes against the grain to buy when a share price is falling, it just feels wrong but that's purely human emotion, something you have to remove from investing. A seller can only sell so many shares, with stcm being pretty illiquid like aaz and wcc used to be it has a greater effect but once the pressure is cleared then it's back to business.

tim000: I think if one wanted to sell millions of shares, selling prior to the ex-dividend date would be a good time, when liquidity is likely to be elevated. It’s not rational to believe the seller is losing out on the dividend, which is already built into the share price. Hence other things equal the share price will fall by 3p when the share goes ex-dividend. Of course, that doesn’t answer the question why the seller is selling.

In particular, we have revised upward our forecasts on positive price and demand trends, which are largely underpinned by the recently opened export opportunities in Uzbekistan. Along with the continuing reduction of leverage, these considerations underlie a 21% increase in our 12-month Target Price, to GBp 40, which implies an ETR of 27%. Buy reiterated. Forecast revisions. Steppe Cement’s 2018 cement sales increased 6% YoY to 1.7mnt, while average ex-works cement prices rose 23% YoY to KZT 13,354/t (or 16% YoY to USD 39/t, based on the average exchange rate for the year). Meanwhile, the delivered price was up 18% YoY to USD 48/t. We believe that these upbeat trends had also a positive impact on profitability, which underlies increasing of our 2018 estimates. We also believe that the outlook for this year remains favourable, largely helped by export opportunities in Uzbekistan. As a result, we take a more positive view on the medium-term trends. At the same time, we are more cautious on the long term, as the current cement shortages in Uzbekistan are to be closed through new plant construction, while the recent capacity additions in Kazakhstan might weigh on the local market. Leverage continues to decline. Our forecasts imply that Steppe Cement’s net debt declined further, to USD 11mn, at the end of 2018 (vs. USD 17mn at the end of 2017), with the 2018 net debt/EBITDA of 0.6x. We believe that Steppe Cement’s net debt might approach zero by the end of 2019, although much will depend on dividend distributions. Nevertheless, given Steppe Cement’s limited capex requirements, low leverage and good cash generating ability, we expect hefty dividend payouts in the future. Dividend remains the key attraction. Given the stock’s low liquidity, we believe that dividends are the key attraction behind Steppe Cement’s investment case. Our base-case scenario implies 2018 DPS at GBp 2, which implies a 6% yield. Meanwhile, given the recent positive trends, we would not rule out that Steppe Cement eventually distributes GBp 3, which would yield 9% at the current share price. We also see a strong case for a notable increase in DPS in the future, as the company is likely to distribute most of the available cash to shareholders, in our view. Valuation and risks. We derive our 12-month Target Price of GBp 40 from a DCF model (WACC 15.5%, TGR 2%). Steppe Cement trades at fairly undemanding 2019-20F EV/EBITDA multiples 3.6-4.0x and the 2019F EV/capacity of USD 49/t, which imply large discounts to global peers. The key downside risks are related to FX fluctuations, cement prices and competition, as well as the overall economic environment and cement market trends.

azalea: Data from Morningstar Prelims for FY 2013. share price 46.5p Revenues KZT 17912million Volume sold 1,366,678 tonnes Average price delivered (ex VAT) KZT 14,245 per tonne Update 10/1/2019 for year FY 2018. share price circa 21p Revenues KZT 2834 Billion volume sold 1.7m tonnes Average price KZT 16,480 per tonne. The only thing from the above is we do not know what the profits were/are. However, we do know that since 2013 the company spent $US millions on converting two of six wet production lines to much more efficient dry lines, whilst mothballing the remaining four wet lines. Making the company one of the most efficient cement manufacturers in KAZ. The company has installed its own direct power line to the national grid. Note the current share price is circa half of that in January 2014. 10 years ago the share price was 75p Beyond that the maximim was 380p.

wilo101: see our 14.01.19, post which reads as follows: Subject: Kazakhstan || Steppe Cement - 4Q18 trading update; positive end to the year Operating Results Steppe Cement 4Q18 trading update; positive end to the year Steppe Cement's 4Q18 trading update points to a positive end to the year and implies upside risk to our projections. We continue to see Steppe Cement's current valuation and the next 12-month dividend as attractive, with our 12-month Target Price of GBp 33 implying an ETR of 71%, including a 10% dividend yield. Strong end to the year. According to Steppe Cement, its 2018 cement sales increased 6% YoY to 1.7mnt, while average ex-works cement prices rose 23% YoY to KZT 13,354/t (or 16% YoY to USD 39/t, based on the average exchange rate for the year). The numbers imply that despite negative seasonality, Steppe Cement managed to increase its 4Q18 sales volumes 13% YoY, while achieving a strong price trend. In particular, we estimate that Steppe Cement's ex-works cement prices increased 60% YoY to KZT 15,270/t, or 45% YoY to USD 41/t in 4Q18. We note that Steppe Cement's 2018 volumes and ex-works prices came in slightly above our full-year forecasts. Supportive export opportunities. According to Steppe Cement, the Kazakhstan cement market declined 4% to 8.6mnt in 2018. Meanwhile, we believe that strong export opportunities, primarily related to Uzbekistan, supported positive price environment. In particular, cement exports from Kazakhstan more than doubled to 2mnt in 2018, while Steppe Cement increased its exports by 50% YoY to 220,000t, according to the company. Longer transportation distances also resulted in stronger growth of delivered prices compared with ex-works prices. In particular, Steppe Cement's delivered prices increased 25% YoY to KZT 16,480/t (+18% to USD 48/t) in 2018, while the company's 2018 revenues rose 32% YoY to KZT 28bn or 24% to USD 82mn. This revenue number exceeds our estimate of USD 77mn. Meanwhile, we believe that upside risks to our profitability assumptions are lower, as higher delivered prices were also associated with higher transportation costs. For this reason we leave our projections unchanged. Attractive valuation and dividend. We expect that Steppe Cement will distribute at least GBp 2 per share in the 2018 dividend, which implies a 10% yield at the current price. We also believe that the recent decline in Steppe Cement's share price has made its valuation even more attractive. In particular, our forecasts imply that Steppe Cement trades at an over 40% discount to global peers on its 2019 EV/EBITDA of 3.2x and at about 70% discount on EV/capacity of USD 30/t.
