UK Stock Market News Today – 1-Aug-2019
Portmeirion (PMP) – 990p – £105m – PER 13
Interim Results For The 6 Months To End June 2019 – In-line with expectations set out in May and remains on-track to deliver FY in-line.
Perhaps fairly priced (at best) around the 1000p level.
Sanderson (SND) – 127p – £77m – PER 14
140p Take-Over – By Aptean Bidco.
Not much of a premium but looks like a done deal.
SCS (SCS) – 216p – £86m – PER 8.4
Trading Update For The 12 Months To End July 2019 – Expects FY to be in-line.
Still not enough here for me as it looks like stagnation for the next couple of years but, if that yield (7%+) is maintained, could provide a floor.
Seeing Machines (SEE) – 4.5p – £150m – PER n/a
Trading Update For The 12 Months To End June 2019 – FY to be slightly ahead.
No sign of a Profit, no reason for me to invest. Latest Broker note this morning confirms no sign of a Profit in, at least, the next 2 years.
T Clarke (CTO) – 117p – £50m – PER 6.5
Interim Results For The 6 Months To End June 2019 – Revenue up 12% to £171.3m, Underlying Operating Margin up 2.9% (2.6%), Cash at £3.6, the Interim Dividend is up 14%, Order Book at £370m (£370m). Confident of FY being in-line.
I recently sold out here with a view that 120p or so was fair value, being in-line would not change that view. Based on the latest Broker note this morning, in my opinion, this looks way undervalued on a 1 Year view and undervalued on a 2 Year view (at 100p (time of writing)) – Note the 4% Yield and Net Cash (but still Low margin, often large complex contracts which can go wrong!).
As always, all comment most welcome!
