At this rate when the dividend is paid it will exceed the share price!
Make the most of it. It is likely to be last for quite a while.

So, after the next divi, it's been axed and it wouldn't surprise me to see a fund raise either.

I think you need to do a bit of number crunching to say whether it is or is not oversold.

Take a look at how the Synthomer price has moved over the past year, for example. It was touted as a 'cheap' stock a year ago, but the true position was merely that its price was down a lot. It is now in the throes of a rights issue and the price (adjusted) about a quarter of what it was then. Its certainly cheap, but is it good value?

My problem with the argument that this is now good value is that without any 'event' to throw it off course, we have moved from 'all on course and orders looking up for the second half' 2 months ago to 'trouble at t' mill' and unable to meet its bank covenants today. It has been for some time carrying a lot of debt, but continued to pay a substantial dividend. Re-financing is going to be expensive, whether by way of new equity issue or bank borrowing. Until we have a clear and credible plan for the way forward, I don't see how one can determine at what price the shares constitute good value.

There may be a credibility problem for some time too. The BoD has either miscalculated badly, or has closed its eyes to problems which called for action well before the company ran out of road. I don't see any fast bounce back in the share price from that, even if the balance sheet can be shored up at reasonable cost.

"Quality" is not a word you would associate with XPP anymore unlike the Duncan Penny days. Debt is still far too high despite promises to reduce it suggesting some of the issues are deep-rooted. A sudden postponement of customer orders from the semi-cap sector is possible in the current downturn that we are experiencing but XPP have been far too lax in cash and capital management - the dividend has been increased too much over the recent past - in the face of such a risk. Also capex/acquisitions have not generated the previously high returns on capital. Recovery and a return of confidence will take a while.

The recovery continues at XPP. Good revenue number but profit has some way to go to get back on track. A reduction in debt would help to reduce the finance charge (H1 2023 exceeds total FY2022) and margins are expected to improve. More to come next year with the semiconductor capital market expected to bounce back (Positive noises at XPP customer Lam Research last week) and the new plant in Malaysia coming on stream.

I don't think there's much issue with demand, Red. As XPP state, after the unprecedented orders in 2021 and first half of 2022 it was to be expected that customers would moderate order volumes. There's a weakness in semiconductor for a couple of quarters but is forecast to pick up again later in the year, but not a problem with the historically high current order book.

They have to cut the dividend. I'd stop it in its entirety. It would be negligent not to in this environment with the amount of debt they have, notwithstanding headroom on new facilities. Too many risks. China. Taiwan. Global recession. Litigation. Semis. I know they have a great reputation on the dividend, but the litigation isn't the run of the mill trading stuff. Yes, could impact on the share price if yield requiring funds sell, but if required to sell when a company with its track record holds of paying dividends for a year then they are living in a fantasy world, so hopefully not too many. Better cut the divi than pay fees of 5% fee on a rescue raise, if gets bad. Management need to show prudence here, and hell to the divi track record.

The historic dividend yield is now 4.7% (94p per share last year). The H1 dividend has been maintained. Anyone's guess as to whether the H2 dividend can also be.

My thinking was, can a big company leverage their own supply chain better than a smaller company like xpp? Maybe big companies are better placed to guarantee continuity of supply to their customers because they can get their own supply more reliably. Maybe they can negotiate better pricing with supplier and customers. Xpp is struggling with inflation and cannot fulfill their orders. It is key they retain customers and volumes on the long term.
