Crazy post. If this went back into the 20s I'd sell my entire portfolio and stick the money in here. Palladium and rhodium prices very high and steady. Platinum has dipped but it is still high on a medium term basis. Company performing very well and seriously undervalued on an EPS basis. Looking forward to Q3 results, which should be very strong.

I am a shareholder of Sylvania Platinum shares & I live in the United States. For some time now I have been unable to access the sylvania platinum website. Any ideas or suggestions?

alan yes, that's my understanding. I agree it's better to do it this way than to issue new shares, but I have grave reservations about the use of share awards of various sorts. If people are paid part of their salary in shares, that's different, but directors handing out the odd percent or more of the company which employs them as a gift to themselves or their colleagues and chums is a phenomenon I find troubling.

Agree with danger - the best method to cover already existing share options allowances (my understanding is these were approved by shareholders in various previous AGMs) is through buy backs, not dilution. Employees and Directors should be rewarded for exceptional performance linked to Company's prospects and share price (i.e. shares rather than monetary bonuses), to align with shareholders. As long as it's not for simply "meeting" expectations, but exceeding expectations. I also agree that SLP are partly over-capitalised in the circumstances and more cash should be used for dividends, but in addition to these buybacks, not instead. Both can be easily funded. There is of course need for a "war chest" and rainy day fund etc. etc., but to go too far and be overly conservative to detriment of shareholders and share price is another thing. After this last buyback, SLP is now at a stage where dividends, not buybacks are most beneficial to shareholders - both for share price appreciation and yield. It is commensurate/proportionate dividends that will provide significant re-rate to SLP, so what you are discussing is a rather "chicken and egg" scenario. Additionally when the share price is low, the dividend yield of course can be higher, thereby benefitting shareholders and enticing new ones. The board has acted in a professional manner to date, steered the company in the right direction and have earned investors trust. A special dividend should be expected for Grasvally sale. If it is not forthcoming however, questions will need to be asked. As it would with next year's annual dividend too if it is once again not proportionate. I'm surprised at how passive both IIs and Private Investors can be to these issues. I've been to many AGMs where IIs hold significant holdings and sometimes they don't even have representation. 5 IIs hold 50% of SLP shares and I'm not sure how active or passive they are to be honest. Have to admit I haven't been to SLP's AGM in Bermuda yet, but plan to next year. Depending on whether or not we receive a special dividend once (if) the Grasvally sale is formalised for the full Net amount, an open letter to the 5 IIs holding 50% wouldn't hurt, to see how passive or active they really are. It wouldn't be too hard to get contact details.

dangersimpson2 — I agree: keep buying back as long as the shares are on a low PE. Meanwhile pay a small proportion of earnings per share as dividend. When the the re-rate comes and the PE jumps, let the dividend rip. Even if a low PE seems never-ending, that way you still get a rapid growth rate in dividends, which will eventually wake the market up for a re-rate.

I know that buybacks can be controversial but with a prospective P/E somewhere in the region of 4 I'd rather have buybacks than an increased dividend at the current price and I certainly wouldn't want them issuing shares on a P/E of 4 to satisfy management options in order to keep the cash for an increased dividend.

"arguably overcapitalised at the moment and probably don't have a better use for the cash" A better use for the cash would be to increase the dividend. The increased yield would make the share more attractive to investors and fund mangers and the share price would likely ascend!

That is exactly what they are saying. Normally companies just issue the additional shares for bonuses and dilute holders, in this case the buyback is a way of funding these bonuses in cash rather than shares. So if you consider the company to be undervalued at the current price then this is a small marginal gain. If you consider the shares to be overvalued this is another reason to steer clear. The share options are already awarded (subject to performance conditions) so you can argue the pros and cons of the share awards but it is a separate issue to whether they should effectively fund them via cash or new shares. I personally prefer the cash via the buyback to being diluted because I consider the current price significantly undervalues the company in the current PGM pricing environment but others may have a different view. Also, they are arguably overcapitalised at the moment and probably don't have a better use for the cash unless Suncor open new mines and SLP decide to add ROM PGM processing to the new mines.

zangddok - I think your interpretation about the share buybacks is the same as mine, but I'd be grateful if you could confirm - or disagree. My understanding is that the shares, being bought with the company's surplus cash (which is an asset of the shareholders generally, surely?) will be held in treasury for the time being, but then distributed to the directors and any other employee benefitting from a share bonus award or share options. Seems like a neat way of robbing Peter to pay Paul?

Think it's right to challenge the options package but not the buyback. They could just issue new shares if they wanted to so the buyback avoids this potential dilution when the company is particularly cash-rich at the moment. Given the volume today it does appear there was maybe a small overhang - and more than the non-PDMR employees. I can see why employees might want to get their hands on the cash given the rise, but with SLP's 4E basket now up 37% in ZAR in this quarter then I'm in no rush to follow them.

I don't mind a buyback for cancellation, but a buyback to hand out the shares to the directors gets up my nose.

I still don't understand the minimal dividend payment - it's making me reluctant to add.

Quite a pullback since the beginning of the month. Hoping we'll soon be seeing another leg up as people become aware of the value here.

I'm already in, check my posts from last October at 17p mate. Also see my call to add at 27p before it took off on the latest rally, all based on volume profile. Only trying to add context to the pull back. Pull up the profile and look yourself, if you know how.
