Yes but who would have predicted their output falling and costs going up quite so much reducing profit even with gold at $1800, dangerous things miners. Cey says IF ALL GOES TO PLAN they will recover production in a couple of years. Hoc says it will plough a chunk of profit into rare earths that will yield big profits in 2030’s IF rare earth prices stay high, Chile doesn’t tax it all away, they don’t have mining setbacks and of course no outliers like covid. Miners costs to replace depleted resources, find new revenue streams and dig it out seem to rise just as fast as the gold price meaning little share price gain over the longer term for most. So these two are both hit as jam tomorrow is a bit dangerous, while THS with so much jam today is hit by worries about jam tomorrow.

The chip shortage is tricky to predict - every article I read gives a different answer. And its relationship with rhodium and palladium prices isn't a straight correlation, either. If you're a carmaker, and you expect the chip shortage to ease, then I think you would buy stocks of Rh and Pd well in advance of the actual easing. IMO, it's about the direction of travel as much as it is about quantities of cars actually being made. Let's hope the world isn't entering a stagflationary episode. And that China doesn't slow down too much. And so on. If you look at the long term share graph, 110p is only an "average" price for THS. And the company is much improved over the last few years (own mining fleet, Vulcan plant all but complete, debts wiped out, production increased etc.). All told, investment in stocks feels like a defensive battle right now. I'm just trying to make sure I don't lose, really! Who could believe Centamin at 92p and HOC at 158p with gold at $1,800/oz???

Sorry our PGM basket is down $1500 TO $2750 (from near $4250) with aircraft $1000 you suggest that is PGM profit down from $3250 to $1750 so near halved. Car makers now say chip shortage should last well into next year, and my understanding is chrome is just turning down. We will still of course make very decent profits at current prices, the question is how much further they fall affecting our share price before turning back up. Incidentally the LSE board is totally dead, mimicking the almost total lack of interest and trading activity in THS.

Chrome price is very good at the moment, I think. Around $180/t was the last I heard. I know it doesn't make up fully for the loss of PGM profits (thanks to the falling basket price), but THS should be making very good money on chrome at this price, even with increased transport costs. p.s. I think you mean PGM basket price down to $2,750/oz, from a high of just over $4,000 (quoted from memory). Approx. AISC for PGMs around $1,000/oz to $1,100/oz (hard to calculate exactly as THS is a bi-product miner). Hopefully, the automotive chip shortage will improve from here. I certainly never thought it could be this severe or last this long!

Our basket is down $1500 from $2750, which halves our PGM profits. Luckily investors expecting this never bid up our share price as much as the PGM rise warranted, you see just how little they trade it, and so it has fallen less than it should. However the chip shortage and lower motor production could last a while yet plus with China faltering chromium could also turn back, so from here we may track falling prices slightly more. Or maybe investors will begin to look for the mid turn PGM turn up before the longer term fall? However the market seems relatively rational on this to me and many stay away, and the few who buy demand a huge risk premium, with PGM and chrome tax worries

from my observation of ths over the same time period i was trading SLP, ths was mostly like this, then moved up 40p in about 2 weeks (maybe less) with so many private investors looking for good quality stocks just have no idea how this escapes....maybe their pr team and broker need to seriously mkt this but, as we know, things change and there will be a time where people cant get enough

@Tiger, I think Zambia can be considered a much more attractive prospect from a political economy standpoint following the outcome of last month's elections ... not least the previous regime's decision to accept peacefully the outcome of the democratic process. Zambia faces many challenges but -- under political leadership that firmly accepts the rule of law, is committed to good economic management and broadly-based national development, and has a broadly positive stance to business enterprise -- there is room for optimism about its future.

Hi Brucie! To tell the truth, I've stopped following JLP closely. It's not just South Africa that is a risk factor over there - Zambia is a far worse jurisdiction (by a distance). Then there are questions about whether the various metallurgical processes involved will work straight out of the box, the financial reporting is delayed and opaque and frankly deceptive, and finally the notorious Colin Bird(!) is still Chairman, and this despite him having sold all his shares (and the CEO having sold his as well). Leon Coetzer is a great salesman, but I'm not buying this breakneck "growth" policy. Not at the current share price, any road. SLP and THS are both excellent well-run companies with clear financials and which make big profits and pay decent dividends and which are seriously undervalued. I make THS to be better "value" right now, but I have money in both.

All three are on the face of it, undervalued, THS, JLP, THS. THS offers the highest nominal dividend, but SLP likes giveaway specials. JLP is pure growth. I've been in and out of all three, currently hold some SLP in an income folio. Got out of my earlier holdings on the strong pullback, to see where it came to rest. Tbh, I don't quite understand the weakness but have been around JLP in particular, to know that SA risk will always make a discount, and that's on top of the vagaries of PGM pricing. Good luck, though. Certainly on my radar to become reinvolved.

There have been a few one off larger trades recently 100k+ that always look like buys taking account of prevailing actual buy/sell prices. eg today 6th Sept 222k at 113p and 2nd Sept 126k at 113p plus some others It looks like somebody is mopping up cheap stock and providing a useful floor As others have said on here/LSE we need a lot more interest to reach fair value I suspect we will have to wait until FY results published in late November before Mr M takes note although the early Oct TS will give a good indication I have an eps of 21p for 2H giving a FY eps of 36p PE 3.1 at 113p which compares favourably with SLP and JLP especially given THS's investment in assets, mine and machinery plus diversification with PGMs + chrome and opportunities outside SA.

I'm not in a position to check right now. But does the $59m match the trade receivables minus trade payables balance? If so, then yes. Remember, SLP only get paid for the PGMs they produce about four months after they actually deliver them to the smelter / refiner. This is what this balance is reflecting - money earnt but not yet received. It's usually a pretty hefty number. (THS also operate on the same principle (for now, at least) when it comes to PGM production, so THS's financial position is always better than it looks at first sight as well).

Agree about the volume! Trading has almost stopped in this share... We should have three pieces of news to come over the next month or so: 1. Q3 production; 2. Vulcan plant completion and ramp-up; 3. Hopefully, DFS for Karo. Hopefully that will spark some interest. This is so undervalued it's really not very funny.

very good slp results, though as expected....but outlook was good and raised dividend welcome, anything slp can do tharisa can do and more, but they seriously need to get the volume up, its pathetic

Just to note Sylvania Platinum (SLP) annual results out today. They are very strong - which is a good omen for Tharisa's own results in 3 months time.

GDP growth does not mean the same as prosperity. Sadly much of the GDP growth is driven purely by population increase - the total pie does get bigger but each persons slice does not! This happened here in the UK, where population increase of 6m in a decade drove up headline GDP, but productivity and living standards went nowhere. The headline GDP figures should be kicked into touch and growth per capita should be the focus.

brucie, wonderful for Africa coming out of poverty and post colonialisation, and creating a huge educated middle class, of course not good for the environment if they live half as well as us, but given the vast space a bit unfair to say they can’t when we are all there, unless of course we halve our populations and living standards….. a tough one, but given we aren’t going to change it let’s buy more Tharisa and follow Tiger into African mobiles
