simon gordon: Mark Slater talking about his methodology the other day: Trustnet - 28/1/21 ...Slater, who seeks growth at an equitable price, is the son of renowned UK investor Jim Slater, who died in 2015 and coined the “Zulu Principle”, a strategy that combines growth, value, quality, and momentum factors. Using price-to-earnings growth as a measure, the strategy compares a company’s forecast price-to-earnings ratio with its forecast earnings-per-share growth rate, which is currently deployed as a screening mechanism in the fund. “We’re not interested in price-to-book,” said Slater, highlighting a three-pronged approach to screening stocks. “We want companies that are growing at a double-digit rate in earnings terms,” he said. “Secondly, [we consider whether you] can you buy that growth cheaply, and the third is profit conversion into cash. Hence price-to-cash flow is important as we want the cash flow per share to be in excess of earnings per share.” Slater explained those three screens eliminate 95 per cent of the UK market and would do something similar if applied to most markets. “Most companies are not growing,” said the manager. “Or if they are, they’re very expensive or they’re not generating cash.” A shortlist is collated which then requires further analysis into how reliable that growth rate is. “Then the work goes from being entirely quantitative to entirely qualitative,” he said. “Is there a tangible tailwind which his driving that growth? It’s why our businesses are quite niche; they’re doing one or two things but are doing them exceptionally well.” Https://www.trustnet.com/news/5253626/mark-slater-the-bell-has-been-rung-and-people-are-coming-back-to-the-uk

qs99: Yup, thanks Riv, just a shame VLG share price heading in the wrong direction! Let's hope we get some news soon on trading, deals etc

rivaldo: Hi QS99, HNY to you too! I stopped working over Xmas/New Year a long time ago when I started doing this lark, which is much more pleasant and has far shorter hours.... Happy to hold VLG for the long-term - acquisitions will happen when they happen, and in the meantime VLG are trading very well anyway. The share price has roughly tripled in the last year, and imo there's still plenty of upside.

rivaldo: Good to see the price rising again. QS99, I completely agree that DD is so much easier nowadays. But surely in VLG's line of work they need to inspect the manufacturing facilities, review the distribution networks etc - corners can't be cut on these things. It's only been just over a month since VLG even announced the Placing and Offer, so it wouldn't surprise me if COVID had caused timelines on these things to slip a little. Obviously I hope I'm wrong! But I fully expect there to be news soon - be it trading or acquisitions - and when it happens the share price is likely to rise nicely imo.

discodave45: PS I'm also a tad cynical on the sequence of events prior to the announcement (Friday afternoon ffs) of the placing, namely that a couple of days beforehand they updated the market on the clinical trial (to boost the share price) and on the day the placing was announced a known ex associate and major shareholder sold some shares (Dr Flynn)...just coincidence?.....not to mention a couple of the BOD selling.

rivaldo: There are some interesting points in Cenkos' long update note from a few days ago: - they've calculated a pro forma forecast for the coming year ssuming the three mooted acquisitions complete reasonably quickly. This produces 6.75p EPS and £11.4m EBITDA, up 62% on the prior forecast - imo that would justify a share price somewhere between 130p-150p - VLG can almost double the manufacturing capacity in Italy from current capacity of 55m units to 100m units for only £7m total investment, with an initial £3m allowing 75m units production - Pharmasource grew 40% in H1'20, and that was before synergies which should deliver further growth in 2021

rivaldo: Great move by VLG to raise £34m at this time to take advantage of distressed sellers - and it seems they already have three well advanced potential acquisitions which would cost £25m-£30m and likely be extremely earnings-enhancing, particularly as the products can be produced internally. As co-founders of VLG in 2010 I'm not too bothered about the CEO and Collins selling roughly half their shares into liquidity, and they can't sell any more for at least two years. The 90p price is disappointing overall - but at least us PIs will get the chance to participate for another £2m. I'm pretty sure this fundraising would have been launched a little while ago, which would account (in the traditional way of the City....) for the share price drop to 90p or so. Today's 90p price is the result.

rivaldo: Good to see VLG newly tipped on Investors' Champion - subscriber-only though: Https://www.investorschampion.com/channel/blog/a-reasonably-valued-healthcare-company-surely-there-must-be-a-catch "A reasonably valued healthcare company, there must be a catch! (Updated) 18/11/2020 · Venture Life Group PLC (VLG) Many healthcare companies, especially with anything relating to aiding Covid-19, have benefited from a strong share price over the pandemic and it is rare to find something of seemingly reasonable value. The shares received another boost on news that its mouthwash might be effective against COVID-19. Check out our updated research here. Founded in 2010, Venture Life Group (LON:VLG) is an international consumer healthcare company focused on developing and manufacturing non-drug self-care products for the ageing population, which consumers can buy without prescription. The Group's manufacturing is based in Italy, where a 5,500m² factory is being expanded to produce up to 55 million units per annum by the end of the year, producing both Venture Life's own brands as well as products for others as a contract manufacturer.

rivaldo: Nice summary from John Rosier in his blog last week, buying more at 101p: Https://johnsinvestmentchronicle.com/venture-life-group-risk-rating-reduced-to-low-added-to-position/ "Venture Life Group: (VLG.L, AIM All-Share: Market Cap £85m, 101p, 6.7% of JIC Portfolio) A reasonable share price response to yesterdays’ results on a poor day for the market. Risk rating reduced to Low. Added to position this morning. Simon Thompson in the Investors Chronicle wrote it up yesterday, pointing to the momentum in the business and the operational gearing that I alluded to yesterday. “When a company with a relatively fixed cost base has the manufacturing capacity to materially increase sales, the impact on margins can be dramatic as a higher proportion of incremental revenue is converted into operating profit.” He also points to the new product launches and not least the launch of Dentyl across 800 of Boots key stores in November. Cenkos has increased forecasts for the full year to £3.3m profits on £30.3m of sales to produce earnings per share of 5.3p rising to 6.0p in 2021. These forecasts exclude any benefit from future earnings enhancing bolt-on acquisitions. Cenkos says it forecasts are “conservative”. I would concur. Simon Thompson has increased his target price to 130p. That looks entirely reasonable to me. Looking back at my notes, the current valuation isn’t much higher than when I first bought in May, due to the big upgrades in earnings forecasts. I think there will be more upgrades during H2 given the momentum and operational gearing in the business. Given net cash on the balance sheet and this momentum, I have today reduced the Risk rating to Low. So Low Risk/High Reward points to a 7.5% position. I have just used the spare cash in the portfolio to take the weighting to 6.7%. I paid 101p for 5439 shares. It is narrowly traded, and I was wary of paying too much!"

redartbmud: tlatsatt Extreme volatility isn't too good for my constitution. Big moves, on the back of no news, especially those to the downside, do challenge one's resolve. Rsw is a good case study, the other way. The last set of results were not good, and global market conditions have deteriorated since, as the lockdown took hold. Logic says that their business to supply capital and revenue items to manufacturing industry, that is currently partially closed down or at best operating well below capacity, should result in further deterioration before the situation improves. Based on subdued profitability, the share price ought to be significantly ahead of resukts and forecasts. If that is the case, the sometimes 100p daily share price increase, on an already rising share price, is irrational. red
