rainmaker: One of the leading AIM stockbrokers, Cenkos Securities(CNKS) with a 37% increase in turnover, a 44 lift in profits and a 25% rise in the dividend in their recent interim results to 30 June 021, are doing very well but trading at a substantial discount to their 10 year average earnings. Furthermore their much improved operating performance has accelerated with a strong start to the second half in July gathering pace into August and September with some 10 deals done already v 16 in the whole of the first half of the year.This is all the more remarkable when you consider that these months are traditionally quieter, summer holiday months. In the words of Ben Graham " In the short term the market is a voting machine but in the long run it is a weighing machine" and eventually the share price, currently lagging at 84p/87p, will begin to reflect much improved trading and growth, in a higher share price. AIMHO, DYOR as I have done mine. regards Edit 13.37, 21/9/2021 correction.
uknighted: RNS ValiRx Plc (AIM: VAL), a life science company focusing on early-stage cancer therapeutics and women's health, has entered an Evaluation Agreement with a leading London university to investigate a novel technology designed to treat breast cancer. Under the agreement, the Company will carry out a defined series of preclinical tests on the drug candidate molecule over the next nine months to validate the technology and determine suitability for commercialisation. This preclinical evaluation, the cost of which will be borne by ValiRx up to £75,000, will investigate the action of the molecule against Triple Negative Breast Cancer and other indications. At the conclusion of the evaluation period the Company has an option to license the technology on pre-agreed terms.
rainmaker: Thanks OnJohn-I'm greatly humbled and sincere thanks also Simmsc-you're decently diversified which is always good to see-imho that's far and away the number 1 mistake Private Investors make-diversification has to be the first rule of stockmarket investment, period. I think Volex's most telling financial, poignant ratio is the price/sales ratio and as I commented some posts ago, IMHO there is a huge discrepancy in that rating which even after large rises in the share price recently is only 2.21 times yet the sector is on something like a 6.41 average rating which equates to some a £13.50 Volex share price IF you believe it deserves an average multiple of sales??!!. As I said, something has to give with the p/s ratio and I believed then as I believe now that it will resolved by a sharply higher share price. Overwhelmingly you only get out of something what you put in so IMHO its incredibly important to research prospective purchases, their markets, their products, their competitors thoroughly before you start keep pressing that confirm button.As Warren Buffett says"If you bring nothing to the Party, how can you expect to take anything home?" I want to tag a couple more Companies as opportunities- Cenkos Securities(CNKS),currently 78p bid, 81p offered, market cap £45.1mln, net cash of £32.7mln(up from £18.3mln in previous year) 3.5p/4.4% Historic Dividend yield. P/E 21.5 times One of the leading AIM stockbrokers. IMHO considerable uncertainty created by shock EU referendum leave result in June 2016 and Covid-19 pandemic have conspired to create a terrific buying opportunity. Company made first ever loss in 2019 a paltry £200k since its inception in 2004 but under normal trading conditions the Company is a very profitable business, making £30mln and £23mln annual pre tax profits in 2015 and 2016 before Brexit induced paralysis set in and floatations, its main profits driver, reduced to a trickle. However trade deal with EU struck at the end of last year and IPOs for the first quarter this year were back with a bang and the best since 2007. Current trading believed to be ahead of last year. IMHO you have to put your faith and trust in this Company’s excellent long term track as they have raised some £21bln for Clients and returned 178p+ to shareholders over the years. Looking for its share price to move to 250p/300p in the next year to 18 months as its trading returns to more typical levels.Strip out the Company's net cash and you're paying just £12mln for a company capable of making £30mln, that's some deal! Orchard Funding(ORCH), currently 57p bid 61p offered. Will update later when I have time. AIMHO, DYOR as I have done mine regards
base7: Clearly should our share price increase by 50p every ones a winner but I agree with Nico in that why should Cenkos,given that scenario,make £2mill profit for no risk.It would be interesting to know what was so compelling about the Cenkos proposition & what they may have "promised" our Board which share price Angel or any other broker could not have achieved.A structured warrant deal rewarding them for success but not prospectively so generously.I do not recollect another investment which I have made,including many micro companies, in which brokers could benefit so substantially ( prospectively) I appreciate that the downside for Cenkos is that Val fail & they dont get their reward -,but they will, I am sure, be receiving fees too.
rainmaker: Hi Boystown, sorry,apologies I see what you mean, I've just copied the message from the Volex thread :-( I originally bought Volex(VLX)some 5 years ago at around a tenth of the current share price, I even put it in the list of shares above but will not be selling now and intend to hold for several more years during which time I expect the share price to perform spectacularly well from strong growth in earnings and a dramatic and very substantial rerating as thematic investors become involved to exploit a widely anticipated and eagerly awaited boom in Electric Vehicles. Volex(VLX) design and manufacture the charger cables for Electric Vehicles(EV)-Tesla are major clients- so are at the very cutting edge of the biggest revolution ever to happen to the multi billion pound automobile industry and we're only just at the onset. In 2020, just 3% of new cars were EV but UBS forecast this to rise to 20% in 2025, 50% in 2030 and virtually 100% in 2040. Meanwhile Volex's sales to EV manufacturers, despite a subdued 1st quarter due to the Covid Pandemic, nearly tripled from US $18.1mln to US $53.1mln in the year to 6 April 2021. At the moment EV are a relatively small part of the overall business, about 10% and clearly this will enjoy terrific growth over the coming years from a very low base. They also have other good businesses, in manufacturing critical components for medical equipment,higher margin complicated electrical engineering assembly which are performing well but none have the spectacular growth prospects in supplying a rapidly expanding Electic Vehicle market. Incredibly given the terrific performance of Volex's EV division and new EV sales beginning to accelerate hard and for a Company with net margins that are strong at 9.7% and expanding, the Company has a relatively modest rating, trading around 18 times earnings and just 1.8 times sales. I believe that a Company with its growth prospects with these value metrics should be trading at between 4 to 6 times sales even before we enjoy any real growth.I firmly believe that The Market cannot coup or absorb the sheer enormity of the growth in the EV market or the growth in earnings from Volex and are way behind the curve on this one.For example and for the purpose of illustration, a 193% growth rate compounded means US $3.5bln(sic) in sales in the year to April 2025. I don't seriously expect their EV sales to reach that level so quickly so its more of a practical demonstration of the magic of compounding sales growth at very high rates.Moreover not only do I expect VLX's earnings to grow very strongly in the comings years but I confidentally expect their rating to balloon. I've seen this happen in similar situations in industries that are about to undergo huge technological change and there are tremendous growth opportunities for well positioned Companies able to benefit for this enormous change eg one Company that went from just 5 times historic earnings to 750 times in just two years.IMHO you get very, very few such opportunities and you need to take full advantage of each one. AIMHO,DYOR as I have done mine regards
rainmaker: Ben Graham's allegory, "Mr Market" is a fictional manic depressive fellow shareholder in a business who has wild irrational mood swings and the daily prices he offers to sell you his holding or buy out yours often reflect his range of emotions from unbridled euphoria to extreme pessimism. hxxps://www.gurufocus.com/news/168996/what-ben-grahams-mr-market-metaphor-really-means https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mr._Market hxxp://www.buffettsecrets.com/mr-market.htm 1)Always remember "The Market" is there to serve you and not you serve "The Market".He is there for your convenience and just because he is sometimes offering sharply differing prices does not mean that you should be induced to dealing with him. 2)Never take investment advice or follow guidance from "Mr Market", buying a share after a steep increase in price or selling after a large decline, as that will surely lead to financial ruin. 3)"Mr Market" will take no offence if you refuse to accept his prices and will be back again tomorrow to offer you more prices. You have no obligation to deal with him and if you do not like his prices and they do not suit you then you do nothing. 4)Remember that sometimes the prices "Mr Market" quotes daily will seem plausible given the Company's current trading performance and prospects yet at other times they have absolutely no bearing to known facts and will make no sense then you free to take full advantage. 5) Be patient and wait for to catch "Mr Market" to be in a very good mood and to accept his very high price for your holding 6) Independant of share price moves,think rationally about a conservative valuation of your holding. regards
rainmaker: For anyone holding or has an interest, fashion retailer, French Connection(FCCN), 18.70p/18.85p currently subject to bid interest from three separate parties are due a trading statement this month. Last years was on 24/7/2020. You would think that current trading would be good, April's retail sales were the best since August last year. A constant stream of selling from impatient holders has kept the share price under pressure. IMHO a bid was never going to come quickly, the CEO, founder and 41% shareholder apparently rejected a 42p a share last January and he obviously, and very reasonably wants a lot more. I calculate French Connection's intrinsic value to be circa 120p a share(its not that difficult to work out) and of course no one will pay anything like that in the current economic climate and with FC's current trading performance unless someone makes a move and they go into play. FC have a valuable brand and IMHO is worth a great deal more than the current share price-just ask DFS. AIMHO, DYOR as I have done mine. regards
rainmaker: Re Cenkos(CNKS) Rainmaker2 Jul '21 - 14:18 - 3861 of 3875 Edit I'm almost certainly in a minority, in thinking that Cenkos Securities at current prices, is a great opportunity but that doesn't bother me as you can't obtain market beating returns by agreeing with the consensus. You just have to think and act independently, think about what makes sense and try to base you opinions on facts. Rainmaker2 Jul '21 - 15:08 - 3863 of 3875 Edit Thanks Brucie, IMHO you shouldn't be in a hurry to sell, wouldn't you rather sell at 240p or 360p than 120p? Just leave it as you make the really serious money in the Stockmarket by sleeping and doing nothing. Warren Buffett never became the worlds richest man through day trading! regards Thanks Ken, I believe as a long standing Stockmarket Value Investor, its very important to think logically and rationally with sound reasoning,think long term and try to base your decisions on hard facts and to ignore short term news or lack of news eg IPOs which I consider to be "noise" and an unwelcome distraction but this noise sometimes creates great opportunities. I am reminded of the Warren Buffett quote "To a Man with a Hammer everything looks like a Nail". I can't blame anyone checking new IPOs on a daily basis because you have access to that information and you're a shareholder and you're naturally interested in this Company's progress but I believe its dangerous to do so since you are studying the short term in detail and isolation when its the long term trend that matters. With an outstanding trading history, I believe that you have to put your faith and trust in the Company's long term track record and give them the benefit of the doubt. I think they have earned that right. Try to focus on a £1 coin that you have bought for a 50 pence piece and be very tenacious and determined to sell at its true worth. regards Rainmaker2 Jul '21 - 16:38 - 3868 of 3875 Edit I think Cenkos previous problems makes sense, if you understand that IPOs dried up when we had the shock EU referendum vote to leave in June 2016(freedom day, that was a great day!) it created enormous doubt and uncertainty then there was a petition with 3mln+ signatorees for another vote to reverse the decision then you had PM Teresa May going to the Country to increase her majority and flopping then trying and failing to get acts through parliament. Its very understandable that Companies would not want to come to the market with this incredible uncertainty and no trade deal, are we staying or leaving the EU and if so when and on what terms and conditions? I think its very important that Investors understand Companies and their markets and the various factors impacting upon their trading performance. regards Rainmaker2 Jul '21 - 18:46 - 3869 of 3875 Edit Re technical analysis, IMHO fundamentals are the absolute king, no question. I believe Cenkos corporate finance department that deals with IPOs, the bulk of the business and the main profit driver at approx 75% of turnover, has a very bright future and as I expected, we have struck a trade deal with the EU(with a large trade surplus with the UK, they couldn't afford not to)and Covid 19 virus is now under control so I'm confident about Cenkos prospects. I know technical analysis inside out, as I have been using it for a number of years and I will use it when appropriate and relevant as I find it useful for timing trades and spotting confirmation of opportunities that the Market will miss. For example I have numerous holdings in Hong Kong stock exchange listed business where for several reasons, I expected a substantial rise in the share price. The share price of this Company was trading at historically very low levels, bumping along the bottom with little interest and small daily volume then one day, it broke into new low ground but then rallied to close above the previous day's high-what technicians refer to as a key or acute reversal, a powerful technical indicator that a sudden trend reversal is imminent and it did it on, and was validated by, so called "explosive" volume, 4 times the three month daily average and I immediately starting buying and within a few days or so, the share price had doubled and a month to six weeks it had gone up three fold........ regards Rainmaker2 Jul '21 - 19:59 - 3871 of 3875 Edit Hi QuePassa, if you're a holder IMHO you just have to stick with it. "buy low, sell high" as the old Wall Street adage goes, simple in theory but more difficult in practice.Presumably you've done the first bit now you just have to wait and be patient for the company's performance to return to more typical levels of trading activity. Under normal market conditions Cenkos is an excellent Company but they've had external problems that are not of their making but now they've overcome them and IMHO their outlook is bright. IMHO you just need to give them time and not be frightened,bored,distracted, frustrated or misled into liquidating your holding because IMHO they're worth a great deal more than their current share price and all you have to do is wait. If you're not familiar with Ben Graham's entertaining allegory(a story with a bigger meaning) "Mr Market" I would definitely have a read, as it will be a revelation and change your whole outlook and attitude towards the Stockmarket. Let me try to find a copy and post it here. Good Luck regards
rainmaker: Here's what I wrote on another value thread-code VALUE on 20 May 2021 but note that both Company share prices have risen so you'll need to adjust the figures accordingly- "A Value Investing forum, I can't resist, I have to make a quick "pit stop".Heres a couple of IMHO impressive "net nets" that I recently bought and haven't seen mentioned on this thread- Orchard Funding(ORCH) Market Cap £11.2mln Number of shares 21.4mln Share price 52.5p Spread 50p/55p p/e 8.13 Dividend yield 5.71% Trading at 6.75 times, 7 year average earnings. Net Working Capital-£15.43mln or 72.11p a share Bargain Ratio 1.37 Vector Capital(VCAP) Market Cap £20.4mln Number of shares 42.0mln Share price 48.5p Spread 46p/51p p/e 8.69 Dividend yield 2.94% but forecast to increase to 5.36% Trading at 12.37 times 3 year average earnings. Net Working Capital-£21.297 or 50.7p a share Bargain Ratio 1.04 The reason I've bought both shares is that they are not only both very cheap, Ben Graham "bargains" but also they are both good businesses and consistently profitable,with great margins, making returns on capital employed in double digits. There're also long established and proven businesses. I believe that Vector Capital was founded in 1978 and Orchard Funding has been around some 23 years. Both pay dividends so effectively you are being paid to wait for an increase in the share price. Both are involved in the funding business, effectively they borrow money to lend at a higher rate. Its a simple and easy to understand business model.Orchard provides customised financial fee funding solutions to accounting firms, professionals and small businesses. Through their subsidiary Bexhill, there are also involved in insurance premium funding so rather than a Customer having to pay the whole annual premium in one go, they arrange instalments say quarterly or even monthly. I read that they have never had a customer default on a payment. I'm holding both for at least a couple of years and expect to do well. AIMHO, DYOR I'll try to update more on Vector Capital later.
