rotrader: Don't really understand the share price with all this buying going on.Perhaps waiting for the next trading update, which historically should be good, then I think we will be heading back to the price before the finance director got a bit above himself ?
nivison: Spruce at 13.56% and Invesco now up to 22.13%. Both American funds adding on this weakness in the share price. Total percentage of the company now in American hands is therefore 35.69%.
horndean eagle: Must be some doubt about whether they get the debt away. Obviously a lot of pushback from bond holders who will suddenly start to ask a few more questions. A failed raise would be pretty disastrous. Equally having to do it at a penal rate will send more nerves a fluttering. Hate to think where share price would be without heavy US buying. Don't think their dealing desk has done them any favours buying so aggressively.
gabrieloak: Inaccurate and outdated article...GW owns 20% and the news of shorters is weeks old. What they weren't banking on is the big holders (~75% of the Co upping their stakes) Smacks of total desperation..."please print something to try and get the share price down further...the stock is starting to go up and we need to buy our stock back!!" ...Well that's just great...these pondlife parasitic funds shorting a solid British manufacturing company while this country is going through a systemic change...what a bunch of Sh*tbags with no regard for the many jobs this company provides in this country...all on a hunch that the shares were "ripe for a cropping having gone up rapidly..."rather like that idiotic shorter 3 years ago...Lucian something or other...lost his shirt (and others theirs) trying to short this company...GO away and earn a proper living...
topvest: Well I've just read the Annual Report and decided to buy a few. The Chairman's approach is so modelled on Warren Buffett and I live near Kidderminster (regularly driving past the fairly tatty head-office) that I just had to buy a few...better late into a great company in the making than not at all I guess! I thought I had really "missed the boat", but on reflection I am not sure that I have. OK, it would have been a dream at a £1 but who knew this was coming other than Wilding. I think the really clever people got in at less than £4 so its pretty much doubled from those days, but has been pausing for breath in the £8-9 range for the last year or so. Looking forward then, this could well become a FTSE-100 company and go to a £5-10 billion market cap if they keep executing their strategy as they have been. I don't generally like growth by acquisition, but they do seem to be buying well and doing deals that are obviously highly earnings enhancing. They seem to compare themselves to trying to do something like Shaw Industries in the U.S. owned by Berkshire Hathaway. That company is about 10 times as big, so there is lots of scope to grow as it seems to be a sector where you can "buy wonderful companies at a fair price" which is quite unusual at this point in the cycle. He even addressed the "missed the boat" question on page 9 of the Annual Report where the answer is that they still only have 2.5% market share in their 3 chosen markets. I must admit to have questioned Wilding in my mind previously, particularly the original audacious deal that gave him a large holding without paying for them in cash...but, I think I may have been wrong....he is either the genuine article or he has been pretending well. He certainly walks and talks Warren Buffett! Some of the antics are very much Buffett style, but the share sales and long term incentive plans less so. Time will tell I suppose, but what a fantastic bit of wealth creation so far particularly for himself and the original shareholders of this small carpet company in Kidderminster. Who would have thought you could successfully be a consolidator in this boring old industry. Its certainly opened my eyes! Original shareholders have nearly 10-bagged, but there is still scope to double or triple from here in share price terms. As an aside...Kidderminster...the former home of carpet with its own carpet museum. Once had lots of companies...only Victoria, Brinton's and Brockway remain of the hundreds that originally existed. Even Tai Ping Carpets closed and headed to London. The odd thing is that I don't think locally people have realised that Victoria is now a proud £1 billion pound company...people are only interested in the jobs locally which have gone so doesn't get the good press that it deserves.
gabrieloak: Reading back over the furnishing report news (not logged on for a few months)...I had missed the news on Headlam seeing UK weakness and European flooring imports being strong... I think the read across from Headlam (along with Carpetright irritating comments on market conditions as a poor retailer) explains the recent weakness in share price...however: (This morning) Geoff Wilding, Executive Chairman, commented: "We are now seeing the clear benefits of our strategy to develop a broadly based, resilient flooring business, where operational and manufacturing synergies lower costs, whilst also providing a robust platform for organic and acquisitive growth. This is in no small part due to the excellence of our wider senior management teams who continue to drive the business and create opportunities to grow market share while maintaining margins. The Board is encouraged by 2018 trading to date. Together with progress on ongoing internal initiatives to deliver synergies and revenue growth, and the very attractive acquisition prospects already identified, the Board is confident it will deliver another year of significant, earnings-accretive growth in the 2018/19 financial year." Board is encouraged by trading so far in 2018! What is not to like...? GO
alphabeta4: FWIW I've kept hold of my 27/3 purchase today. I think there is an acquisition or two imminent. My thinking is: 1. From today's statement: 'Additionally, the Board of Victoria has invested a significant amount of management focus during the past year identifying additional suitable acquisition opportunities. Shareholders should anticipate further acquisition-led growth focused on Europe.' Later they talk about 'very attractive acquisition ops already identified'. This gives a clue IMHO that they are fairly well advanced. 2. Around the last acquisition 15/11 they said they kept back £21m for more acquisitions and there is now circa 5 months extra cash, helped by the Karaben and Ceramiche acquisitions. 3. Four acquisitions were completed last year, from Feb there was a gap of 8 months and then two in quick succession. If there was one within the next month that would be around a 6 month gap. I expect there is currently c£50m cash to play with, on a pe of 10 this would add c9% to forward earnings, or about 70p on the current share price. GLA
wingspan: Perhaps because GW does not view the share price as high enough on a fundamental basis...
topvest: If you say so. I think they should be keeping gearing down ready for the next recession, but call me cautious if you like! I drive past Victoria Carpets at least once a week and it's amazing to think the market cap for a nearly finished carpet company is now approaching £1bn. Quite impressive indeed, but the share price is high so why not issue some shares rather than take the net tangible assets negative?
alemein: Sounds like it could be beneficial to us. "A stock split is usually done by companies that have seen their share price increase to levels that are either too high or are beyond the price levels of similar companies in their sector. The primary motive is to make shares seem more affordable to small investors even though the underlying value of the company has not changed. A stock split can also result in a stock price increase following the decrease immediately after the split. Since many small investors think the stock is now more affordable and buy the stock, they end up boosting demand and drive up prices. Another reason for the price increase is that a stock split provides a signal to the market that the company's share price has been increasing and people assume this growth will continue in the future, and again, lift demand and prices. The bottom line is a stock split is used primarily by companies that have seen their share prices increase substantially and although the number of outstanding shares increases and price per share decreases, the market capitalization (and the value of the company) does not change. As a result, stock splits help make shares more affordable to small investors and provides greater marketability and liquidity in the market."
