from this is money

JD WETHERSPOON (FTSE250)
Value for money also lies at the heart of pubs business JD Wetherspoon. From morning to night, its outlets usually see its customers enjoying cheap food and drinks.

Yet despite emerging from the pandemic in a stronger position than many of its rivals, its share price is still some 50 per cent lower than it was pre-lockdown.

Ben Needham, of Ninety One, believes the business, led by chairman Tim Martin, has 'some of the most untapped pricing power' among UK domestic businesses and will benefit as more competitors withdraw from the sector. Greater value sales will result in bigger profits.

'Martin has just put his own powder to work, buying £7million of shares at £7 a share,' says Needham. 'Founder owners buying their own stocks is often no bad signal to investors looking for an investment home.' The shares are currently priced at £7.42. It does not pay a dividend and will not do so until profits return to pre-pandemic levels.

Admit to buying a shed load on Friday.... I just cannot see the share price not getting back into the £8+ range sometime in the coming months. I did a quick list of reasons to buy before diving in.... I cannot see any major gotcha's in the medium term.

- Interest rates on the way down soon .... ++ for leveraged JDW
- Energy price contract up for renewal Sept 24...... +++ should save lots ££
- TM quoted on Sky that with what he (we) knew he expected ++ share price raise
- Margin will probably increase due to price uplift early Feb. I reckon now circa 8%
- Total sales this year on track for £2 Billion
- Operating profit on track for £150M+ this year (all time record)
- TM holds lots of shares 25% +++
- Continued buybacks a possibility (assuming share price stays at this level)
- That 2% price increase = 40% increase as per above youtube
- Workforce has a stake in the company
- Most importantly their pubs are rammed at weekend and busy mid-week..

What is there not to like about this share.... sure a 5% increase in sales over past 7 weeks may have disappointed but this will increase ... and 5% of £2 Billion is quite a lot.....

After all that, bet they go south tomorrow.... :-)... If they do I am up for quite a few more at the end of the trading day. If not then on my hands I will sit.

EI, I've not had a chance to look at the JDW results with a clear mind after the shock of ACRL this morning.
I would say Tim and his friends run JDW to their own tune. JDW have kept a lid on the price rises and have room to increase prices, almost at will, as they are the cheapest by far in the industry

"A 2% price increase at the till has a 40% drop through to profits"
Time 16:40

I do not know how accurate that 2% number is but IMO JDW have room to push prices up as inflation drops, boosting margins to historical levels.
I don't hold JDW at the moment but may jump back in if JDW start the share buyback again. NLW increase is a negative headwind across the whole service sector so JDW may drift lower still in the short term.
Euro 24 in the summer should also boost interest.

Reckon we will know the business done over this coming weekend come next Friday. I say that as all my (old) mates know about the £2.99 Guiness offer and are not holders. I just wonder if a mention of a dividend will be made on the 22nd. Given the buybacks has been on hold of late and with the budget helping, and price increases of late then you never know. I still have in my mind the 2% price increase equating to 40% extra profits such are the numbers with this business. I did half expect for the share price to touch £7.30 and had funds awaiting the bots pushing it down to this level. Parked these monies in oilers for the moment and still ready to add if the share price goes down again. On balance I would anticipate w/e 29/3 should see the share price around the £8.30 level..... It's just too good a company and my target is much higher than the current level.... Great beer and food to add.... What's not to like about JDW.

Seems a national offer excluding airport's...... subject to availability though. I suspect the trick is to get the ordering of barrels of Guiness right as at that price they will be very very very busy. The staff will be run off their feet that weekend, though lots of new customers will be introduced to JDW so long term it will be a winner. Reckon the opposition will be be selling Guinness twice or more of what JDW price point is. Great move and JDW have the muscle / leverage to make this work.... great publicity for the brand.

Circa 13.40pm 4 off trades total 500K @ £8.205.... 125K each trade. Could be JDW dipping their toe in again to provide that backstop to the share price Eyes down for a 7am RNS if it was JDW.

I’d far rather they paid me a decent dividend than engage in yet another round of buy-backs. The last sustained programme of buy-backs was obviously not a great success, with millions of shares bought back at a double-digit share price and subsequent essential share placings at much lower prices. While the downward lurch in the share price from Covid cannot have been foreseen, JDW is now a mature company whose best days of growth - I.e. opening of new pubs - are behind it. So, I would much prefer they employed surplus cash - I hope they are not taking on further debt to finance the buy-backs! - and finally reward shareholders with a decent wedge. They are very generous to staff with good bonuses and to customers with ultra-low prices. It’s time to be generous to shareholders too.

isis: I share your view JDW pubs are busy and good value.
My observation is that margins are going to be squeezed over the next few months without further price rises.
Will those price rises just cover increased costs or will they be big enough to restore profits to historic levels which justified the historic share price.

Tim Martin sold £50m+ in shares in 2021 at £11.50. He does not need a strong share price today or dividends to fund his lifestyle. Easier life for him if he is a good employer and pays the profits to his staff as a bonus.
In 2019 staff bonus and shares cost £46m equal to 58% of profits after tax.
In 2023 staff bonus and shares cost £36m equal to 106% of profits after tax.
In the period 2017-2023 staff bonus and shares cost £255m and profits after tax were £56m

"Total sales have grown by 8.1% in the year to date."
Not so impressive when you take into account the 7.5% price increase across the board in February. Plus all the other price rises that have been drip fed in over the year.

JDW had long term supplier and energy contracts. Those higher costs may still need to be annualised. No world cup this December. National minimum wage is expected to be over £11 an hour from April.
A few headwinds over the coming months.

"The company currently expects an outcome for the financial year in line with market expectations"

The above link has expectations being higher EBITDA and EBIT but lower EBT and EPS.
Forecast EPS is 42p which is at pre 2016 levels when the JDW share price was similar to current levels.

I'm happy to listen to any counter arguments.

I have been following Loungers for 18 months but not bought. Lounge customers may be disproportionally hit by higher mortgage rates. I like everything else about their strategy. I would like to buy LGRS at a lower price as currently I see more upside in the JDW share price over the next 2 years.
