The Volkswagen Group's sales revenue in 2022 is expected to be 8% to 13% higher than in the previous year, and that of the Passenger Cars Division 5% to 10% higher. In terms of operating margin the Group continues to expect to come in at the upper end of the corridor of 7 to 8,5%. Reported net cash flow is expected to remain at the same level as in 2021. In 2022, net liquidity in the Automotive Division is further anticipated to be up to 15% higher than the prior-year figure, before Porsche IPO proceeds.

Sounds good to me, - the word "higher" is mentioned several times - especially as the report earlier says "in difficult times"

As per VTU - a very solid well run company with good management, where the the gloom and doom of the market as a whole and which is very much accounted for in with the share prices - probably too much accounted for in with the share price now investors believe it over done - and may not prove to be as bad as the share price and market is forecasting. That is why the share price has risen last week cause a number of investors believe the down turn from 75p to 40p was over done and why now the share price stands at 44.8p. Lets see if last week was just a blip.

Did we miss that a million shares were bought in one day in 50k lots ?
That does not look like a Company going down the pan, even if the Bank of England raises the base rate next Friday to 3.25% and just before Christmas to 4.25%.

It was said that along with a problem & a delay in buying new cars, supply is exceeding demand with second hand cars, that should keep prices high for some time to come.
Lookers have already said that trading is still very strong.
Thats why VTU share price has bottomed out at 40p, & 2nd half results will exceed expectations.
What about the million shares in VTU bought in one day last week?

For an American suiter - VTU would be pocket money - especially with the pound / dollar rate now. The fundamentals are good, and I believe VTU are a well run company,
and I believe that VTU will exceed profits expectations. There is a lot of negativity already in the share price, but how is the rise in bank rate and energy prices going to affect the profits too. One negative comment was that although the fundamentals are good, VTU has a lot of lot term liabilities, which they did say the VTU could well cope with.
The bigger stores are worried on this score too.
Thank goodness for Jeremy Hunt as the market appears to have picked up today.

Sunshine..the global economic woes are more than baked into VTU share price. Cash rich, asset rich, well run and made most of the predicted yearly profit in first 6 months. Dividend well covered, potential acquisition target…very happy to keep topping up at these prices.

Trading still appears to be strong, so full years results should be quite solid.
If VTU has made 28.2m profit half way, that is quite good with a share price of £46p,
and considering the capitalisation. But what eps and profits are we looking at for the full year - I did hear that VTU expect to be ahead of expectations for the full year - but I did not hear what those expectations were. None the less if they make double £28.2m then that still puts them on a very low pe ratio.

There are always a group of people in society with good, or very good jobs who have a fair bit of money to change cars, the rest just buy what they can afford.

Times are going to get harder especially when people have to remortgage now at double the cost or more - who are on fixed rate mortgages - and then there are the 2 million that are on variable rate mortgages - than it would have been in last December.
And obviously it will affect other purchases like cars. VTU does appear to be well managed which is a bonus.

Hopefully we can look forward to more good news to come.

On the financials they say net asset value is 88p per share, a lot better than PDG, and there is the 4% divi.
PDG moved very little on fairly good results, maybe VTU will do the same. Many shares have hit a new low of late.

I believe VTU share price has bottomed out. It hit 38p but quickly rebounded to today price..
On fundamentals the price is beginning to look very good value after hitting 75p early on in the year.
When to buy is the question.

DEC went up today, due to the 10% yield - paying a quarterly dividend
SBRY still slides even though the dividend now is 7%
Although no good having a high dividend if one loses it in downward share price movement.

What will happen to sales in the next 6 months may not be as bad as people think
VTU share price does appear to have bottomed out at around 42p,
The market is anticipating what could happen in the next 6 months though,
especially if finance borrowing rates rise - will this effect car sales dropping off, profits and the share price.

In fact VTU is holding up well in todays market, but then the fundamentals are very good.
Could be rated as a buy ?

Interims are due next week, I think Oct 5th.

Recent energy caps will save businesses money including VTU, this is probably worth a few million so this is a positive and likely to be raised as such next week.

I think you'll see a positive set of numbers probably ahead of forecasts for first 6 months. VTU still without debt so well positioned for both acquisition and share BB so I wouldn't be shocked to see another BB commitment of similar value to last time unless they require cash for large acquisition.

No one knows quite how the economy will respond in the short term and all businesses are likely to caveat their forecasts including VTU who are always conservative in respect to their forecasts.

At today's price, if you can afford to hold, this is exceptional value in my opinion, the fundamentals are solid and the business remains focused on growth with a good execution, plenty of cash, no debt and a NTAV almost twice the current share price. Remember this is just an opinion.

43.15p today - I can't really see this drifting much further - certainly not to 30p,
unless they come out with a bad trading forecast. Remember the share price did hit 75p.
PDG has results next Thursday, one to watch that could affect the share price of VTU.

I monitor the sale of some cars and some are taking longer to sell, However on Autotrader some dealers - eg. Arnold Clark - are very optimistic on their asking price , some being £2,500 over the norm. When cars much lower priced are taking time to sell, then some dealers need to look more closely at their pricing.

I too would not buy a car without first test driving it and preferably also seeing the logbook. One has to see a car first before handing any funds over to buy the vehicle.
I would also prefer to collect the car myself rather than have it delivered.

VTU is very good value for money at present and the prospects for the future I believe are good. After next set of results maybe the current gloom and doom outlook may have a different outlook on the way the company is actually going. Not all people are struggling to pay bills, some still have money to change and update their car. To some a car is a status symbol, and is high up in the list of spending. I believe though only 9% of all deals are paid for outright, the rest are either fleet cars or on some kind of HP. The retail industry dont like people like me who buy outright, because a large percentage of their profit is made by finance deals over a period of time.
There could well be a correction in VTU share price during 2022. I personally would like to hear some news on PDG, and get the bid done and dusted to be able to release more funds.
