UK Stock Market News Today – 1-Nov-2019
Lookers (LOOK) – 50p – £193m – PER 6
Q3 Trading Update – Challenging environment continues, expects Underlying FY PBT to be circa £20m (latest forecast was circa £20m), Net Debt stands at £73.9m, freehold property valued at £312m (some will be sold though), 80p a share. The CEO and COO both go!
Doesn’t look great but could this be a “blood on the street” opportunity? Strip out the Net Debt and there’s still a value here of, what, 60p+ in freehold.
As always, all comment most welcome!
