energeticbacker: Decent results with nice clean unadjusted numbers. While revenue rose 2.4% to £113.3m, pre-tax profit fell 18.5% to £15.9m with earnings per share 17.7% lower to 11.45p, although the prior year benefited from the disposal of a property. Operating cash flow was strong at £19.3m with the free cash inflow £11.2m leaving period end cash of £44.4m. More on the Investor's Champion website.
cwa1: Sneaking results out at 4.48PM, what's that about?
saint or sinner?: You've got to love a share like this, with a thread first started in 2004 and with only 317 posts in the last 16 years; no mischievious interest from the TW muppet brigade either - just leave the capable Directors alone to do what they do best.
cwa1: Bit of a haul before the next news now if the past is anything to go by. The most recent broker comment I've come across is 2/5 from Liberum:- Liberum Capital today initiates coverage of Thorpe (F W) PLC (LON:TFW) with a buy investment rating and price target of 400p. Anyone got anything else of interest here?
ygor705: Better interims than I was expecting this morning but consistent with the recent positive trend in the share price This will not be a brilliant year for TFW but management are alert to the issues and always seem to be on-the-ball. Cash flow remains good and what catches the eye is the near £8m increase in the cash shown in the balance sheet to £36m. Happy to hold this one in my portfolio.
ygor705: Quiet board here but the share price is recovering nicely. TFW has not had the best of runs over the past 12 months but the balance sheet is strong and the management know what they are doing. Good enough for me in this particular sector.
davidosh: Liontrust have picked up 5.68% of the company from somewhere or someone.... Http://
martinc: Anyone else think this is looking distinctly peaky now? I think this is a great share, but a pe of 25 seems quite high. I don't see a particular reason for high enough growth to support that.. but I'm often wrong about things.
davidosh: From the excellent Richard Beddard in Money Week.... Home > Five Aim stocks to help you sidestep inheritance tax Five Aim stocks to help you sidestep inheritance tax Hold companies that qualify for Business Property Relief for two years, and your investment is 100% IHT-free. Analyst and private investor Richard Beddard recommends five of the best. Judging by the response we get from MoneyWeek readers when we cover the topic, inheritance tax (IHT) – which is charged at a rate of 40% on the part of your estate that is worth more than £325,000 (or £650,000 for a couple) when you die – is probably the most loathed of all taxes, writes John Stepek. The bad news is that the IHT take hit a record high of £4.6bn for the tax year just past. The good news is that there are several ways to protect your assets. One of the less well-known options is to invest in assets that qualify for Business Property Relief (BPR). Once a qualifying investment has been held for two years, it is 100% IHT-free. To qualify for BPR, a company cannot be listed on a recognised stock exchange, and its main business cannot be investing in other companies or property – so investment trusts do not qualify, for example. Where would you find such a company? One obvious hunting ground is the Alternative Investment Market (Aim), which is not a recognised stock exchange. Of course, the tax tail should never wag the investment dog – there is no point in careful IHT planning if you only save on tax because you’ve lost all your money. So any stocks you invest in need to be companies you would want to buy anyway. Below, analyst and private investor Richard Beddard looks at five stocks that are appealing regardless of their BPR status. A word of warning: a company may currently qualify for BPR (we have checked those listed below with the IHT screening tool offered by Investor’s Champion), but that could change. The key point is that it needs to qualify when your estate is passed on. So it is vital to keep a track of your Aim holdings and their status. Also, as mentioned above, this is not the only way to manage your IHT exposure. Other methods include simply giving away assets (although if you die within seven years, these may still count as part of your estate), or investing in agricultural land. At MoneyWeek, we think it’s important for investors to be able to manage their own finances, but this is one area that, if you have an estate that is large enough and complicated enough to justify extensive IHT planning, is worth discussing with a tax specialist. 3. FW Thorpe (TFW) Market cap: £270m Debt-adjusted p/e: 23 FW Thorpe is best known for its principal brand and largest business, Thorlux. Thorlux manufactures commercial and industrial lighting systems. Take a tour around the Thorlux factory in Redditch and you will witness a small industrial revolution taking place. Beside production lines manufacturing traditional fluorescent lighting systems by hand, newer robotic lines assemble light-emitting diode (LED) systems. The principal components – the LEDs – are soldered to printed circuit boards in a cleanroom in a corner of the factory. The cleanroom is less than three years old. In factories, shops, schools, offices, hospitals, and on our streets, old-style fluorescent light bulbs are being replaced by these more expensive, but longer-lasting, more energy-efficient LED lighting systems. LED systems are much more sophisticated than their forebears. For example, they come packaged with electronics that can control the light level depending on whether there are people moving nearby and the level of ambient light. Other FW Thorpe businesses manufacture more specialised lighting, for roads and tunnels, streetlights, signs, and retail displays. Today, more than half of the company’s overall sales by value are LED lighting systems, but the group must still support customers who have yet to convert to the new technology. The company blames its lower profitability in recent years on the cost of developing and maintaining two product ranges, LED and incandescent. However, three factors mitigate this decline. Firstly, Thorpe still achieves enviable levels of profitability – its return on capital in its last full financial year was 22%, the same as the previous two years. Secondly, as Thorpe retires its older products, profitability should improve. Finally, the company is focused on cutting the cost of the LED components it buys in. The adoption of LED lighting is happening very quickly and Thorpe admits it rushed to develop new products, not always cost effectively. But as the cost of LEDs comes down, profitability should improve too. William Thorpe, who founded Thorlux in 1936, might be surprised if he were to return and see the factory now, but his grandson, Andrew Thorpe, who is the company’s chairman and joint chief executive, appears to be guiding FW Thorpe effectively through a potentially difficult transition. Again, the stock is tightly held so be aware of the spread when looking to buy or sell.
