vfast: Octopus Investments, nice to see a new investor taking interest with just over 3% of the share capital.
slopsjon2: Chris Mills is also a director of Harwood Capital which has 19% of Surserve. So is he selling a personal holding or some of Harwood Capitals holding. This is from the 23/11/19 Director Dealing Sureserve was notified today that on 22 November 2019, Harwood Capital LLP purchased 324,711 ordinary shares in Sureserve ("Ordinary Shares") at a price of 29 pence per Ordinary Share. Christopher Mills, Non-Executive Director of Sureserve, is deemed to be person discharging managerial responsibilities at Harwood Capital LLP and is therefore deemed to have an interest in 30,489,711 Ordinary Shares of Sureserve representing 19.18% of the issued share capital of Sureserve.
vfast: IMO this has not happened over night and has been planed for sometime. The new guys will already have been picked and contacted and an agreement in place. I see this as a very positive move for the company and in a short time span we will be back on an upward direction and this may be seen as a good buying opportunity. Trading & outlook statement at the AGM today will reassure investors and the Market!
rivaldo: I completely disagree. For a start RNWH has been a multibagger for me over time and is imo on the cusp of another rerating. The City loves: - high visibility of revenues - big presence in a number of ESG markets - fast growing sectors - must-have services for every household - solid Balance Sheets - acquisitive companies with a track record of successful integration - management who've done it all before It seems to me that, with SUR's qualities above and having a m/cap now just above £100m, there could be sizeable interest from institutional investors.
vfast: Worth reading. Simple Wall St seem very keen on SUR. Here's Why We Think Sureserve Group (LON:SUR) Is Well Worth Watching By Simply Wall St Published December 09, 2020 hxxps:// Like a puppy chasing its tail, some new investors often chase 'the next big thing', even if that means buying 'story stocks' without revenue, let alone profit. But the reality is that when a company loses money each year, for long enough, its investors will usually take their share of those losses. In contrast to all that, I prefer to spend time on companies like Sureserve Group (LON:SUR), which has not only revenues, but also profits. While profit is not necessarily a social good, it's easy to admire a business that can consistently produce it. In comparison, loss making companies act like a sponge for capital - but unlike such a sponge they do not always produce something when squeezed. View our latest analysis for Sureserve Group How Fast Is Sureserve Group Growing Its Earnings Per Share? In the last three years Sureserve Group's earnings per share took off like a rocket; fast, and from a low base. So the actual rate of growth doesn't tell us much. Thus, it makes sense to focus on more recent growth rates, instead. Like the last firework on New Year's Eve accelerating into the sky, Sureserve Group's EPS shot from UK£0.015 to UK£0.034, over the last year. Year on year growth of 121% is certainly a sight to behold. I like to see top-line growth as an indication that growth is sustainable, and I look for a high earnings before interest and taxation (EBIT) margin to point to a competitive moat (though some companies with low margins also have moats). Sureserve Group maintained stable EBIT margins over the last year, all while growing revenue 8.4% to UK£219m. That's progress. Fortunately, we've got access to analyst forecasts of Sureserve Group's future profits. You can do your own forecasts without looking, or you can take a peek at what the professionals are predicting. Are Sureserve Group Insiders Aligned With All Shareholders? Like standing at the lookout, surveying the horizon at sunrise, insider buying, for some investors, sparks joy. That's because insider buying often indicates that those closest to the company have confidence that the share price will perform well. However, insiders are sometimes wrong, and we don't know the exact thinking behind their acquisitions. We haven't seen any insiders selling Sureserve Group shares, in the last year. So it's definitely nice that Chief Executive & Executive Chairman Robert Holt bought UK£23k worth of shares at an average price of around UK£0.51. The good news, alongside the insider buying, for Sureserve Group bulls is that insiders (collectively) have a meaningful investment in the stock. To be specific, they have UK£9.2m worth of shares. That's a lot of money, and no small incentive to work hard. That amounts to 10% of the company, demonstrating a degree of high-level alignment with shareholders. Should You Add Sureserve Group To Your Watchlist? Sureserve Group's earnings per share growth have been levitating higher, like a mountain goat scaling the Alps. The cherry on top is that insiders own a bunch of shares, and one has been buying more. This quick rundown suggests that the business may be of good quality, and also at an inflection point, so maybe Sureserve Group deserves timely attention. Of course, just because Sureserve Group is growing does not mean it is undervalued.

vfast: Great news Rivaldo, thanks for the Master Investor update. Final results due out in January which will make interesting reading.
rivaldo: Mark Watson-Williams on Master Investor has updated this weekend on SUR as follows: "Sureserve Group (LON:SUR) – share stake hurdles overcome, brakes off now The change around in some larger share positions has possibly helped to take off the brakes on this compliances and energy services provider. Down to just 46p at the start of this month, the shares have been edging higher this week, putting on 12.5% this week alone, closing at 54p. Do not underestimate this group – basic services and cash generative, a classic combination. I still see them touching 70p within the next few months."
cerrito: I signed up for the Proactive session this evening when Bob Holt and the New CFO were due to speak but for some reason it did not happen. A shame for me as this is the first time I have been aware of SUR doing a retail investors event.
rivaldo: Tipped tonight on Master Investor - should bring in some interest tomorrow: Https:// "Sureserve Group – resilient trading update By Mark Watson-Mitchell 06 October 2020 A resilient trading update at Sureserve indicates higher final profits to end-September, writes Mark Watson-Mitchell. This morning’s post-year-end trading update from the £83m capitalised Sureserve Group (LON:SUR)points to increased profits yet again. Furthermore, with the compliance and energy services group continuing to win more business, the new trading year should be even better. Impressively, its order book is now £375m. For the year to end-September 2020, I would now expect the company to see a small fall in revenues to around £195m (£212.1m), which would be totally understandable considering the impact that the lockdown had on the business. However, I am looking for some £9.3m adjusted pre-tax profits (£8.3m), which is a healthy improvement. That would give earnings of around 4.5p per share. For the year now underway, I believe that its greatly increased contract chasing team will help build the group’s order book even further. Those new contracts generally have a three-year term, which provides a firming underbelly financially as the business progresses. End-year net cash balances were around £3m, which together with a £25m revolving credit facility and a £5m overdraft, plus some HMRC VAT deferrals, gives the company the financial ability to make small bolt-on acquisitions in due course. Give it a few more years of steady growth and I can foresee the business being valued at well over £150m, with revenues of £300m, its profits climbing to £20m and its shares trading at over 100p. The shares have been as low as 27p over the last year and peaked last month at 57p. They closed last night at 52p and, in my opinion, are moving up to trade around the 70p level, possibly before the annual results are published next January."
cerrito: I will join you at the proactive seminar Igoe104. In the meantime I will be contacting Peter Smith to say that for retail investors like me saying they will meet market expectations without specifying their understanding of market expectations is not very helpful. I would encourage others to do the same. Digital look has eps of 4.71p for the year just finished and 5.26p for the current year but no idea of course is if these are the figures Peter Smith has in mind.
