cockerhoop: Used my 1 Free Article :-) Questor share tip: a series of mishaps has sent shares in Walker Greenbank to a valuation of just seven times earnings, so there is plenty of scope for gains Markets may be turning ugly, and this column continues to seek out stocks whose cheapness could provide protection against further falls and whose recovery potential offers the chance of gains. Admittedly, this strategy requires patience and strong nerves, as evidenced by the mixed results generated so far by names such as Strix, Zytronic, Pressure Technologies and Xaar. But another stock worthy of further research is Walker Greenbank, the wallpaper-to-fabrics group. It has a rich heritage and strong brands, which include Zoffany, Harlequin, Sanderson and Morris & Co, but the past three years have been ones to forget for the company. A flooded factory, a fire at another facility and a profit warning have all torn a hole in the share price, which has fallen by two thirds. John Sach stepped down as chief executive in October, alongside first-half results that reported a 12pc drop in operating profits, so 
 non-executive Christopher Rogers took the role of executive chairman until a new boss could be hired. So far, so bad. But even with so many mishaps Walker Greenbank made an 8pc operating margin in the first half and a return on capital of 18pc last year. It has just £5.2m in debt (well within its overdraft and banking facilities limit of £22.5m) and although a £6.6m pension deficit must be watched, operating profits covered interest and pension costs by more than nine times. As a result, time should be on the side of both the new management team and investors. A forward price-to-earnings ratio of just over seven means that potential shareholders are not left as a hostage to fortune should profits disappoint once more (as is always a possibility), while the forward yield of 5.5pc comes from a dividend still more than twice covered by earnings. Hopefully such tempting numbers mean investors can wait patiently for a turnaround. The clearest near-term risk is that trading in Britain remains subdued and that an international sales drive fails to compensate. Questor says: buy Ticker: WGB Share price at close: 75.5p
trt: Big 1m buy gone through. So oversold it is ridiculous. could see a big share price jump come early October when results are out.
harry the haddock: yeah great trt.shareholders must be over the moon at that yield. Must really make up for the near 60% drop in share price over the last 6 months. The way this is going it won't be long before the divi is higher than the actual share price!
cascudi: the Board now anticipates that adjusted profit before tax for the year ending 31 January 2019 is likely to be in the range of GBP9.5 million - GBP10.0 million so it is not as good as 2018 (12.78m pounds) but this is still higher then 2017 (6.97£).... in 2017 share price was over 200p pe of 4 with 5pc yield seems a good to me.???
trt: Oh and the RSI indicates the share price is heavily oversold.
trt: The share price should be back over the £2.00 level bearing in mind profits have actually increased by 17% over last year. Heavily oversold, plenty of money to be made here for those getting in at these low levels.
doubleorquits: Broker update this morning from N+1 Singer: Walker Greenbank has confirmed that repairs to the Anstey factory printing machine that was affected by the fire 4 weeks ago are progressing, and it will be up and running again in early Q1 FY19. Insurance will cover the repair/replacement costs, and there will be no loss of profit (just a deferral from Q4 into Q1). The deferred printing revenue is expected to be of the order £1m and the profit shift will be about £0.4m. We have altered our forecasts accordingly, from £12.8m to £12.4m in Jan18 and from £13.5m to £13.9m in Jan19. The fact there is no further update on trading indicates performance since the warning 8 weeks ago has been in line with downgraded guidance. Given where the share price has dropped to after a 40% fall to 140p (vs 12% downgrade), the P/E is now sitting at just 9x. This looks to be significantly oversold and so today’s news ought to be well received and see the shares regain some ground. The FY pre-close will provide more details on subsequent UK and overseas trading in 4 weeks time.
trt: No but you have got to get realistic clearly don't know the business here. Soon the MMs will mark this up and all those that have sold will be kicking themselves. I have seen this so many times the MMs getting stock on the cheap and then everyone scrambling to get a piece of the action once the price rises quickly. I will take advantage at these levels which a bigger dividend and share price growth.
trt: WH Ireland analyst John Cummins believes the share price reaction is overdone and has retained his 'buy' recommendation on a 12-month view with a target price of 245p. With the shares currently at 150p, that implies potential upside of 63%.He said: "Whilst this morning's news is clearly disappointing and the consumer environment is likely to remain challenging for some time, we believe Walker Greenbank remains strategically well positioned in its markets."Cummins points to the estimated 40% of sales generated overseas, with Walker Greenbank continuing to attract strong interest thanks to its "Made in Britain" products. Printed fabrics for all of the brands are manufactured in Lancaster at the Standfast & Barracks factory.In addition, there's continued strong growth in licensing income after the company said it was on track for a 15% rise on a like-for-like basis in the current financial year.The group also benefits from a strong balance sheet and an improving dividend yield, which is forecast by WH Ireland to grow to 4.4% in 2020 from the 2.3% achieved in 2017.In the meantime, Cummins has reduced 2018 revenue forecasts by £6.8 million to £108.2 million as a result of today's warning. This results in full-year pre-tax profit forecasts moving £1.4 million lower to £12.7 million and EPS slipping 10% to 14.1p.
trt: Yes but the drop in the share price doesn't correlate to the 10% drop in profits and certainly doesn't take into account the 15% increase in licensing profits or other overseas markets that are continually growing profits. With Clark and Clark powering ahead and as mentioned in the statement today this 10% drop doesn't include C&C. The share price is oversold that's my point but it is common for MMs to manipulate the price on such occasions.
