red army: Some M&A activity in this sector as well. Large cup and handle pattern formed on the share price chart
norbert colon: Davy Are you still a shareholder? I sold all of mine (partially forced seller) in Sep / Nov last year having been fortunate at buying initially at sub 80p. Results look very good and CAGR of 10% for EPS over next few years not to be sniffed at but talk of 10 quid share price seems rather optimistic. Still very much like the company and may invest again if the opportunity arises.
mo123: Very interesting read from Edison. Fully diluted EPS next year 32.9p but the average PE ratio for the sector is 17. It's arguable that the ratio should be at least equal to that of UTV, the other provincial station. So on a forward PE of just 12.8 that gives a target share price of around 400p. Mo
beep_beep: Tell the folks over on the ITV thread and if they know about this beauty it will fly! What would the same PE as ITV mean in terms of share price target?
jbarker5555: Nice to see the share price movement backing up what appears to be an undervalued company IMO :)
che7win: I would be surprised if the stock doesn't rise on the back of this. Even if profits were to remain flat for the next three years, the Enterprise value will contain less debt and more equity which should increase the share price over time. Good to see the pension deficit reduce which was my main worry even with the artificially low yields on bonds in the current climate. edit Pauly, our posts crossed, you state it more eloquently than me :-)
che7win: philjeans, just a comment - whether a poster is keen or not on a stock shouldn't influence you. You are responsible for what you invest in and if you think a stock is ramped why invest or stay invested? DYOR. As you know with TNI, a share price doesn't always correlate to underlying fundamentals. Plenty of investors well down in TNI despite the persistent rampers. Not knocking TNI btw, I like it on fundamentals and I've owned before. Back to topic - Interim Management Statement should be expected here in the next couple of weeks (mid-November).
crawford: CB7, you make a valid point. For the next 18 months, STVG paydown of debt will happen slowly but it should start dropping from here on in. After June next year it's gone. That £600k per month will then be diverted to paying down our debt or acquisitions. STVG should be able to cut debt by £10m a year easily from 2013, that is very significant to a company with market cap of £42m. The enterprise value should mean that STVG's market cap would be increasing by £10m a year or 25% - just on the reduction in debt. The presentation slides shows a very aggressive plan by the company to have 67% of revenues from sources outside of it's core business by 2015 - should result in growing profits. My point is if ITV are astute, they'll takeover STVG whilst STVG's share price is weak and ITV's is strong. A paper takeover would be very cheap for them right now, or they could use cash and shares. Either way, with UTV and ITV both rising strongly this year and STVG still on a cheap valuation it is better for ITV to takeover STVG before it rerates. You have to think of the takeover from ITV's point of view - they take out a competitor in many ways - STVG competing with ITV on digital viewing STV player etc but also the cost synergies to ITV - for instance on nationwide advertising which ITV does on behalf of STVG and head office staff and regional sales teams that STVG has. ITV's results emphazise cost synergies, stripping out costs - what better way than taking over the last two remaining independents. I personally think that ITV will want to take out STVG and UTV as they have done with Channel Television and strip out the costs and duplication. The cost savings would be vast and they would no longer have them as distractions. In the bigger picture, ITV needs to compete with online, internet on tv and pay television - makes sense that they have the complete UK licence ownership to me.
crawford: ITV's share price means they have a strong currency for takeovers, but they are also nearly debt free too. They could take over STVG in cash or shares. The quicker STVG recovers, the safer for us! If I were in ITV's shoes, I would be buying STVG out soon before it shows strong business results - in the next year or so. ITV is doing well, expanding production and producing quality programmes like Downton Abbey, it makes sense for them to take STVG and UTV out - the last two independent UK franchises. It was three independent franchises last year, so they've already taken out one independent. On a business level, both takeovers would be earnings enhancing to them - even taking over STVG at 200p which is what I personally think it would take. They need to concentrate on competing with SKY rather than competing with say STVG on play on demand. The technology changes which are happening such as programmes on demand and internet tv is the next challenge. Makes sense for me that they tie up lose ends here and take us out - they can't do it by accumulating in the market, too illuiqid and most shares tightly held.
crawford: Assuming £300m plus bid for UTV and STVG as in the article and assuming ITV were to take on the debt, that would mean a doubling of the share price as far as STVG is concerned. STVG could be ITV's for an £80m+ bid which would be over 205p a share. You may think that is fanciful, but 2012 EPS is forecast at around 40p. I know the debt is high, but that will fall after this year and STVG are confident enough to say they want to reinstate a dividend. Taking over STVG at a P/E of 5 would be a good deal for ITV - there are a lot of synergies. I have been saying for some time that it makes sense, ITV clearly are wanting to consolidate with the takeover of the Channel license this week. I don't think I would be prepared to accept for less if it was to happen - especially with the house broker having a target of 224p a share presently. The house brokers last broker note started with this paragraph (share price at 111p at the time): Digital strategy evolving In addition to reporting an 'in-line' set of interim results that sets up the company to meet forecasts for the year, STV management is also talking more openly about its evolving digital strategy. The aim is to reduce STV's 93% revenue reliance on broadcasting and ITV to a more balanced 65% by 2015. This will be achieved through the roll-out of low-cost, digital brand extensions and the development of more complete digital platforms, such as STV Local. We are excited by the value potential of these initiatives and urge investors to take advantage of the stock's lowly valuation. Buy. All IMHO.
