Fair play Guys and good luck elsewhere. I've got a target price of at least £6 - £8. But whats worth noting as well is that Clipper had a Pre Tax of about a third of Wins and Clipper was bought out for £850M. Clipper was growing at a faster rate but....did it deserve that valuation?
If Win was bought out on the same multiple it would be valued at over 2.3B with a share price of nearly £20.
So I'm happy to take a Med/Long term view. Then again Ive been here from 40p so whats another 8 years? Now that is a long term view.

WIN is rather defensive with cash on the balance sheet..

They make provision to teach their own drivers and manage to pass on the majority of fuel surcharges to their incumbents.

One to watch for Q3 numbers.

Wincanton plc issued a trading update for the 6 months to September ahead of its HY numbers. The Group's revenue for the first six months was up c.8% or c.6% excluding acquisitions. New contracts, such as with Primark, The White Company, MGA, Wickes and DEFRA, contributed significantly to the year-on-year increase in revenue. The Group expects to deliver financial performance in line with market expectations for FY23, in other words another year of steady performance, no bad thing given the deteriorating macro environment. Valuation is decent if not compelling, the balance sheet remains strong with net debt closing at c.£2m. The share price is down a little ytd and lacks positive momentum, the macro outlook remains the main cloud. WIN is certainly a share worth monitoring for the time being, but there is no rush to buy....

Price slide seems to coincide with an awkward summer. However, 333p seemed too cheap to me, I think it was worth adding at that price.

Not sure the effect of gas prices (sic) on WIN and the Felixstowe disruption, but at any rate I am assuming these are short to short-medium term issues, I don't see why they should affect longer term value.

...from last year...

Wincanton issued a trading update yesterday. It was generally solid, revenue growth was strong, FY22 profits expected in line with market expectations currently around £45m and up about 7%-8% on FY21. Valuation is pretty attractive with forward PE ratio around 9.6 and some scope for upward rerating. Also pays a 3.4% dividend yield. Its not ever going to be a high growth name, but should deliver some decent returns over the next few years. Share price is currently correcting following bumper rally through H2 20- H1 21, so no rush to buy. But is a steady share to at least consider and monitor for the time being....

Posted at 17/2/2022 18:43 by tole cheap dividend growth stock I'd invest £500 in today!Royston Wild | Thursday, 17th February, 2022 | More on: WINShopping cart with boxes labelled REITs, ETFs, Bonds, Stocks Image source: Getty Images.I'm searching for the best cheap stocks to buy for my shares portfolio in 2022. There are many top low-cost British stocks for me to choose from but this one has really caught my eye. I think it could deliver striking profits and dividend growth over the medium-to-long term.Earnings are tipped to soarCommercial transport business Wincanton faces some significant headwinds in the near term as fuel costs rise. Petrol and diesel prices in the UK have just hit record highs and they could keep soaring too as oil supply shortages could persist for some time.As a long-term investor I'm still thinking of buying Wincanton today however. City analysts believe the business should grow earnings 18% in this fiscal year (to March) and by mid-to-high single digits in the following two years too. These predictions reflect expectations of rising demand for logistics services as the economy bounces back and the continued support led by e-commerce growth.A cheap stock for the e-commerce boomIn fact, it's my opinion that the threat posed by increasing fuel costs are baked into Wincanton's low share price. At 385p per share, the transport titan trades on a forward P/E ratio of just 9.4 times.I'm actually encouraged by the small-cap's ability to thrive despite the sharp rise in fuel prices that dates back to last summer. Indeed, Wincanton actually raised its full-year profit forecasts last month, thanks to strong trading across all of its divisions.I'm particularly impressed by Wincanton's ability to exploit the online shopping boom. And I think this could be the catalyst for strong long-term sales growth. Revenues at its Digital and eFulfilment division leapt 51% in the three months to December, latest financials showed.Wincanton bought supply chain business Cygnia last autumn for £23.9m to boost its exposure to the e-commerce revolution. But even without the contribution of the new unit, group sales still soared in the third quarter (rising 22% year-on-year).Rapid dividend growthWincanton's not just a great buy from a growth perspective, however. I'm also thinking of buying the logistics business because of the bright outlook for its dividends. City forecasters think last year's total payout will rise 16% to 12.03p per share in the current period. This creates a handy 3% dividend yield.Dividends are tipped to continue rising strongly in the medium term as well. Full-year dividends of 13.57p and 14.3p per share are predicted for financial 2023 and 2024 respectively. Consequently, the yield rises to 3.4% and 3.6% for these years.Finally, I also like Wincanton as an income share because current dividend projections seem pretty secure, based on expected profits. Those dividends the City anticipates are covered around 3 times by anticipated earnings. This figure is well above the widely-regarded security benchmark of 2 times.I believe Wincanton offers brilliant growth and income potential right now. And at current prices I think it could be too cheap for me to miss.

WIN wins another...a new one, 5 years, sounds good:-


Wincanton, a leading supply chain partner for UK business, has secured a new five-year contract with MGA Entertainment, the manufacturer of children's toys and entertainment products. The new partnership will see Wincanton providing omnichannel supply chain solutions for final mile deliveries to retailers across the UK and direct to customers’ homes.

Operating from Wincanton’s automated multi-user warehouse facility in Middlewich, Cheshire, the transport and warehouse contract sees Wincanton store, pick and deliver around 250,000 products per week during peak sales periods. The operation will begin in October 2021 and will replenish over 190 major retailers, supermarkets and independents across the UK. For larger products, Wincanton will also provide a two-person premium home delivery service direct to customers’ homes.

The contract also sees Wincanton providing solutions such as Amazon Vendor Flex, pre-retail repacking, security tagging and returns processing.

Tony Thomson, UK Operations Director at MGA Entertainment, commented:

“We chose Wincanton to ensure we have a partner that matches our ambition and has the capability of delivering our planned growth to the level of excellence our products demand.”

Rachel Gilbey, Managing Director of General Merchandise at Wincanton, commented:

“Wincanton’s new partnership with MGA Entertainment will provide flexible and responsive supply chain solutions during peak periods and throughout growing and changing market demands. This agreement is yet another example of how Wincanton’s agile offering can help support partners’ growth and represents a great opportunity for us to showcase our broad capabilities in meeting the high expectations of our customers."

Liberum: driver shortage won’t hold Wincanton back

Logistics group Wincanton (WIN) may be facing a driver shortage, but it has managed to keep trading in line, and Liberum says it still has pricing power.

Analyst Gerald Khoo retained his ‘buy’ recommendation and target price of 520p on the stock, which leapt 7.3%, or 24p, to 355p yesterday.

He said trading remains ‘in line’ with ‘strong retail volumes and closed book contract rate changes balancing the challenges from the HGV driver shortage’.

‘Adverse sentiment around the latter issue has been the main cause of recent share price weakness,’ he said.

‘This overstates Wincanton’s exposure, with most of its revenue derived from non-transport activities, and a majority of revenue covered by open book contracts. We see evidence of pricing power as customers realise the importance of supply chain integrity over cost minimisation.’


Posted at 13/9/2021 07:17 by rivaldo
Liberum have today raised their target price to 520p:

"BUY, TP raised to 520p from 510p

On our revised estimates, Wincanton trades on a March 2022E P/E of 11.0x and EV/EBITDA of 7.0x (pension adjusted, using the NPV of deficit repayments). We see this as wholly undervaluing a group delivering medium-term double-digit underlying EPS growth (masked by an increase in the tax rate this year), providing crucial supply chain services to mainly blue-chip customers, with strong and growing exposure to structurally high growth customer sectors. We raises our DCF-based target price to 520p from 510p on higher forecasts. Our recommendation remains BUY."

"Reinforcing Wincanton’s Digital and eFulfilment offeringWe see this as an attractive deal. Cygnia has a strong client base with mid-market retailers and health & beauty brands, including BrewDog, Moonpig, Molton Brown, Revolution Beauty, Whittard of Chelsea and Feelunique. It operates out of four sites in the UK, using a shared user warehouse model. Its services include the full range of online fulfilment activities, along with returns and parcel carrier management. The acquisition is consistent with Wincanton’s strategy of pivoting to faster growing activities within contract logistics. Digital and eFulfilment is the smallest but fastest growing of the group’s customer segments. The acquisition of Cygnia should reinforce Wincanton’s offering in this area. In particular, the mid-market exposure should complement Wincanton’s current strength with larger customers. Having a mix of larger and smaller customers provides good options to fill multi-user sites and accommodate customer growth, including the recently-opened Rockingham site."

Good start - and what looks like some positive (if algorithm-y) coverage on Stockopedia:


"Here are two reasons why Wincanton (LON:WIN) could be a stock to watch
Wed 8:31am by Ben Hobson

The Wincanton (LON:WIN) share price is currently trading at 312.72. But to try and predict what the price will look like in the next 12 months and beyond, it's worth knowing its strengths and potential weaknesses. The encouraging news for shareholders is that it shows signs of stacking up well against some important financial and technical measures...

Wincanton is a mid-cap share with at least some exposure to two of the most influential drivers of investment returns in the stock market: high quality and strong momentum.
