essentialinvestor: Take a look at the 5 year JDW chart, that gives a broader view.
kierculpa: If jdw can make it to May the rebound will be huge. But are they gonna make it to May?
essentialinvestor: Perhaps a longer term perspective may be helpful. In September 2017 the JDW share price was around current levels. That year JDW made £76 Million on pre tax and EPS was 70.80p a share.
kreature: Your starting to look like one of them lol....Any views on JDW here. When will they need to raise more cash etc?
gozzie2: Time at the bar?Holders of JD Wetherspoon (LSE: JDW) may want to look away from the pub chain's share price when it provides a trading update on the morning of 11 November.I can't see the numbers and outlook as being anything but bleak. After all, JD Wetherspoon already announced its first annual pre-tax loss since 1984 earlier this month. The recent introduction of curfews across many parts of the UK is unlikely to have improved the situation. News of the company needing to slash jobs, while not unexpected, doesn't bode well either.Like easyJet shares, the question to ask is how much of this is priced in. At half the price they were at the beginning of 2020, you might think 'quite a lot'. Moreover, analysts are expecting earnings to rebound massively in FY22, leaving the shares on a P/E of 13 (if you still pay any attention to forecasts).Nevertheless, I'd be inclined to look elsewhere, at least until the crucial coronavirus 'R rate' is on the retreat. On a risk-reward basis, JDW still doesn't tempt me.
glenowen: I cant see why some are anticipating a share price meltdown on Monday. Sure, it will go down, but £5?! Its hardly as if this news is unexpected - a one-eyed Albanian could see this coming, as a famous financial adviser once said.If people can hold their nerve, I think JDW will be the main long-term winner in the pub sector from all this. A lot of smaller, weaker pub businesses will be forced to close, leaving JDW to take up the slack.I might be wrong, of course, but I have no intention of selling in a panic on Monday.
rescuer: EI - yep, but they'd need cash to clean up - i posted here months ago with a growth solution for JDW, if they raise now say £300m, by the way of a placing at a substantial discount, then they would be able to service the short term debt, acquire failing venues at what will be fire sale prices and expand from there, which will take couple of years, but without any fundraising JDW will struggle in the short term. brilliant business model, but as it's all about footfall, can see JDW struggling in the short / medium term without any fundraise.
glenowen: Just for a change on this forum, some specific comment on JDW and its prospects as a business. I visited my local Wetherspoon for lunch today and was very impressed: 1. Member of staff at the door to ensure that all customers were either registering their visit on the NHS Track and Trace app, or filling in contact details on a form. 2. All staff were wearing masks and tables seemed to be getting cleaned after customers left. Lots of protective screens around the pub. 3. Ordered on the app and food and drink arrived quickly. The food was very good quality, yet again. While a lot of people seem to complain about the quality of JDW food, I have rarely had cause for complaint over the years. 4. The cost - inclusive of free coffee refills - was ridiculously good value. They still have a 50% discount, Monday’s to Wednesdays, and that is an absolute give-away. 5. Staff who served me was helpful and courteous. I think she was smiling but couldn’t confirm, due to the mask! As a shareholder, I did sell some JDW earlier in the Covid period - just to protect against the potential downside of an indiscriminate collapse in the market. However, on the strength of today’s experience and numerous other “research̶1; forays - I do pay attention to the financials too - I think that JDW will definitely be a “survivor̶1; and should prosper, long-term. The quality of the company’s business offering and its customer service levels are better that rival companies, in my opinion. Of course, if Covid-induced economic Armageddon is upon us, JDW will have no chance - just like the rest of us.
gozzie2: Stock of the Week: JD WetherspoonDiscount pub chain's shares have halved this year and a second lockdown would give it a monster hangover. But can price-conscious punters ride to the rescue?James Gard1 October, 2020 | 11:19AM??????We've been thinking about pubs this week, and not just because the 10pm curfew has focused the minds of seasoned boozers in England. We're looking at the listed pub sector from an investment perspective too – is it "last orders" for the battered sector or should shareholders expect "one more the road" as the hospitality sector re-opens?Our stock of the week is high street pub chain JD Wetherspoon (JDW), as voted (by a very large margin) by our Twitter followers. Wetherspoons - or "Spoons" to the initiated - is by far the largest publicly-listed pub company with a market capitalisation of £1 billion, making it a member of the FTSE 250.Shareholders have enjoyed bumper returns since the company floated in 1992, with only the enforced shutdown of the UK pub sector from March to July this year bringing its winning streak to abrupt halt. It floated at around 30p and, taking into account stock splits, had hit a record high of £16 before the pandemic struck. But the shares have halved this year as the sector has been floored by coronavirus restrictions. Wetherspoons issued a profit warning on March 18 and cancelled its dividend – the last payout that shareholders received was in November 2019, a final dividend of 8p per share. In its latest trading update at the end of August, the company said that 844 out of 873 pubs are now open, but some airport and train station branches remain closed. Wetherspoons expects to make a loss for the last financial year (against a profit of nearly £100 million last year), with results expected in early October. The Eat Out to Help Out scheme, a temporary measure to boost midweek sales in pubs and restaurants, has helped sales, the company said. We recently wrote about the scheme and how it has affected Beefeater-operator and former stock of the week Whitbread (WTB).Cheap and CheerfulBut as Russ Mould, AJ Bell's investment director, points out, the end of the scheme will present problems for Wetherspoons' value-conscious punters. "What really matters now is how the business fares without the sales incentive and if it can avoid pushing up prices to help claw back some of the lost revenue from earlier this year. It cannot afford to upset customers who are already in a fragile state of mind."On the flipside, as the economic backdrop darkens, Wetherspoons' proposition of cheap booze and grub could come to the fore. "Value-led operators are arguably better placed to get through the crisis as the public will be paying a lot closer attention to their spending patterns," Mould says.After the latest trading update, James Wheatcroft, analyst at Jefferies, said that the company should bounce back quickly now the pubs have re-opened (albeit with reduced trading hours). "We continue to think that JD Wetherspoon's strong position within the UK pub sector – consumer traction and well-located, largely freehold estate – should allow it to return to former profitability fast."ControversiesWhat are the risks to investors? The possibility of a second lockdown cannot be discounted, which would have a devastating effect on the pubs and restaurants sector after an already dismal year so far. On the other hand, the UK Government appears keen (for now) to avoid a national lockdown for economic reasons.As always, outspoken founder Tim Martin has his own opinion on the matter: "I believe, on the balance of the arguments, that avoiding full lockdowns and adopting the Swedish approach, is the better solution."Controversy, from Martin's views on Brexit to a social media campaign this year to boycott the chain, could put off more sober-minded investors. Still, ESG ratings agency Sustainalytics ranks the company as medium risk, with a score of 22.5 out of 100, and a score of 48 out of 100 for corporate governance. Wetherspoons is rated as a 2 (out of 5) for controversies, which Sustainalytics ranks as "moderate".A number of UK funds hold Wetherspoon, including mid-cap and equity income offerings. Columbia Threadneedle is a large shareholder, with around 15% of the company, and the pub chain is held by a number of its UK funds.
rescuer: Gozzie, thats a biggie esp after the latest fundraise. I was going to post a way out for JDW the other day, but here goes. JDW have an amazing business model, which during normal times ought to see them continue with their growth, however, due to restrictions, tight margins and hugely reduced footfall, the business model is now under server pressure. JDW did raise earlier in the year, however i feel this will only touch the sides and will not offer enough liquidity going forward. JDW should consider IMHO a major placing to raise c£400m - this ought to be enough for them not only to realise short term liabilities, but also pad them out with enough to continue the expansion of the business. Covid will pass and things will eventually return to some sort of normality. The business will recover over the coming years. However if they don't have a major fundraise soon, then I fear the model will need to be contracted, much as RBG have stated in the above. JDW could take the opportunity of a life time, if they took the hit now, raised high and re-adjusted the model. The raise would need to be large and dilution could be as much as 100% of the shares in issue, the institutions i believe would support this if the placing was at a substantial discount to today price. just my opinion - hope you all have a great weekend. r
