imastu pidgitaswell: Had forgotten about 200 day moving averages 'n all that stuff... Yes, 90 is a clear resistance (previous support in 2013) on that chart. Re PE ratio, important to note earnings are reported in Dollars, share price is in Sterling. Probably helpful, but Dollar not as strong as Euro against Sterling. But it's all about future earnings, and whether they will be achieved. Have to say the more I see and hear about the direction of travel regarding electric cars and the important element of government legislation (sensible or not, it is what is it...) around the world, the more attractive investing in a quality cable maker becomes.
imastu pidgitaswell: Results out next week. I'm not expecting much of the good vibes (electric vehicles, trade deals, overall streamlining etc) to manifest in hard numbers - yet, but the share price continues to head upwards in anticipation. Just hope it's not getting ahead of itself, but we'll see soon enough. Two year chart looks very nice, and recent trades have been on the buying side, for a few days now (but someone holding the price at 74). Large investor (Ruffer) also adding, up to 19%. All good for now.
she-ra: Duncan Doughnut - To prop up the share price. In any case directors always make sure they do well out of deeply discounted placing and by buying quite a lot they will be able to subscribe to a lot more on the cheap.
she-ra: Quite conservative for Liberium. They usually set a target price 200%+ than a current share price and then those in the know about them just laugh.
she-ra: pictureframe - Or you could ignore the Fool like most competent investors do and realise that China is slowing down very quickly and that smartphone growth is almost stagnant. And you might also consider that this is only the beginning of the slowdown. Who knows how bad it could all get. And Volex stockpiling inventory for expected new product launches could actually be very damaging to the share price if management expectations aren't achieved.
pictureframe: Taken from Motley Fool - sums up salient points. Volex (LSE: VLX), the maker of a multitude of cabling and interconnect products, was something of a late September dog when a profit warning caused the share price to tumble, contributing to a 47% fall from July’s peak to today’s 44.5p. But we had a management restructuring in December, and the City bods are predicting a more-than-doubling in EPS for the year to March 2016, which would give us a P/E of only around 11 — and a further 50% EPS rise penciled in for 2017 would drop that as low as 7.5, which looks super cheap to me, despite the absence of dividends. In these bearish times people are usually looking for safety, but we mustn’t forget that there are still smaller cap growth opportunities out there, and Volex looks like a promising candidate to me.
rathkum: Director shareholding was an example of the worst type of Director buy - it's small (only £6,650), and comes shortly after bad news (a profit warning). Brokers & PR people need to stop advising Directors to buy a few shares after a profit warning - it doesn't give investors confidence, quite the opposite actually - it just looks like a feeble attempt to manipulate the share price! Whilst the profit warning doesn't sound too bad, with the CEO having gone, I expect there will be another kitchen-sink process, and yet more restructuring costs. Maybe another fundraising might be needed too? Stay clear until sub 50p
luckymouse: the wiggly bit shows the share price
imastu pidgitaswell: Re this fictional supplier, my point is that they would already have these structures in place; while there may be a volume-based increase (e.g. HR) in those costs for an acquirer, it would largely be spreading that support infrastructure over the VLX operations - the substantial duplication could and should be eliminated. That's how acquisitions work - fundamentally similar operations, with economies of scale and eliminating back-office duplication. On the earnings multiples points - all valid and have made the same points myself further up the thread. Current (or last year's) earnings in no way justify the current share price, future cash flow and profitability is key. Forward earnings are difficult to predict, external analyst input is quite poor frankly, and the most useful information is usually from the management presentations - but this is obviously biased. It will be 2016/17 results (not available before mid 2017, 2 years away) before the real underlying profitability is visible. Truth be told, I think there are better shares to be long on, but I also think there are better shares to be short on.
imastu pidgitaswell: The chart is showing tentative signs of progress - but we have seen that quite a number of times before. What usually happens then is that Golden Peaks Active Management come out and stomp all over it, dumping more of their formerly 12%+ holding (now c5%) and slamming the price down. Presumably the brilliant intellect that had them buying at higher prices and selling for a loss (to their client - so not their problem, really, as long as the fees keep rolling in...) also cannot compute that if they just laid off the selling for a short period, it might encourage some buyers and the price would rise - at which point they could at least sell some for a lower loss. But I'm rambling. Nothing else to be done until the bloody share price rises - although still a few more to pick up once the tax relief gets paid in to the SIPP later in April. Probably...
