rivaldo: HotStockRockets says Buy this afternoon (subscriber-only): Https://www.shareprophets.com/views/58026/touchstar-interims-and-expects-full-year-ahead-of-expectations-buy "Touchstar – interims and expects full-year ahead of expectations: BUY By HotStockRockets | Friday 17 September 2021 Mobile data computing and managed services company Touchstar (TST) has announced results for the first half of calendar 2021 and that it “has traded well in recent months, as a result we now expect full profits to be ahead of our previous expectations”. Sounds good......"

rivaldo: Perhaps someone who's read WH Ireland's latest research. As I posted earlier.... WH Ireland have raised their fair value to 115p. They now see 3.5p EPS rising to 5.5p EPS next year, and £1m EBITDA rising to £1.3m next year. And fo course TST have £1.3m net cash - almost 20% of the £7m m/cap. They summarise: "Interims illustrate continuing momentum – FY 2021E forecasts raised Touchstar is a supplier of mobile data computing solutions and managed services to a variety of industrial sectors. This morning, the group has released interim results to 30 June 2021, which illustrate positive momentum across the business. In the six-month period, revenue was 8.9% lower as expected but the meaningful 640bps increase in the gross margin reflected the growth in recurring software income, while a tight control on costs remained. Looking ahead, the order book is reported to presently stand at £836k and despite the well-flagged wider supply chain challenges, the Board now expects results for the year to 31 December 2021 to be ahead of current market expectations. As such, we now look for FY 2021E PAT of £250k (previously £100k), while at this stage maintaining our FY 2022E forecasts of £500k for the time being. Although the shares have performed well, an FY 2021E EV/EBITDA of 5.2x falling to just 4.1x illustrates the potential for multiple expansion and further outperformance. Reflecting the uplift to forecasts, we increase our fair value estimate for the shares to 115p (from 100p), which would equate to a current year EV/EBITDA multiple of c.8x."

varies: I am old-fashioned enough to look at EPS before EBITDA. Whilst today's results are re-assuring and I am glad to see the recent increase in the order book, we are still at the stage of guessing at the amount of jam tomorrow. It will be disappointing if the EPS for 2022 do not exceed W H Ireland's forecast of 5.5p as this is the year when everything is expected to come right. On this basis TST shares are selling at a prospective PER of about 15 which is hardly cheap.

rivaldo: TST have £1.3m net cash against a £7m m/cap! More practise needed reading a Balance Sheet methinks..... WH Ireland have today raised their fair value to 115p (from 100p).

bio_tango: Good to see profitable outcome for HY21. However, revenue once again down and just cannot see how they can grow the business with the diminishing revenues over last few years (downward trend even prior to Covid). There is only so much costs that you can cut. Reckon early spike and let's see where things settle down in terms of share price.

onehanded: Poor management team lost 750k on nothing. They need a placing soon. Last placing heavily discounted here on TST, expect around 15% this time. Would have to be very soon before the share price falls to much. Best to sell and get in on the heavily discounted placing. That's what holders have been doing since the 80p - 90p range. Still very toppy..... Big red flag as last update saw a fall in revenue and NO forward project. Can only mean lower revenue and either profit warning or heavily discounted placing. Not good forecast.... spread so wide it's another red flag.

boonkoh: Surprised the price has held up so well.We know that the sales cycle here is long and the order boom has been decimated. Latest AGM statement said "recovery" and gave an order book number that is far from pre-covid levels.So am puzzled why its so highly valued. When the results come out, we're going to see low revenues and profits, that don't support the current share price

varies: ALS You seem to have missed a line in the recent announcement of results for 2020. If TST finds that it has more cash than it can use profitably in the business, the surplus will be returned to shareholders. This is unlikely to happen soon but considerable improvement is expected in 2022 and we might perhaps see a return of capital then. I have had what is for me a substantial holding for many years and have had a long wait to see the share price recover to where I started. I intend to hold on.

rivaldo: A few random notes from TST's recent investor presentation FYI: - recurring revenues were up 15% last year to £2.1m, and should be up another 15% this year - three new customers for POD systems already this year - Microsoft Mobile has been discontinued, so the resulting upgrade cycle will benefit TST - TST will generate cash this year - from here, every additional £1 of revenues should largely drop through to the bottom line - £0.5m of last year's £0.9m drop in admin.costs should continue this year - TST are in a trial with the NHS to distribute pharmaceuticals directly to homes. This could be a large contract assuming the trial is successful - Access Control are trialling facial recognition in a Government department. This could also be significant in monetary terms Any corrections/mistakes pointed out welcomed.
